Mr. Freeze faces a fire-breathing dragon in a fight to save his frozen wife! Batman saves a sorcerer who offers to join his battle against evil. The Joker visits a small village, to devastating effect. And Superman goes rogue…or is there another explanation for his bizarre antics?

Happy Season 2 Returns To SYFY On March 27, 2009

SYFY has released the first trailer for Happy! Season 2, and it looks about as insane as you’d expect!

Weird Al Yankovic is just the latest guest star to join Happy! Season 2, joining the likes of Ann-Margret and wrestler Big Show.

Based on the New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name, Happy! follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt). In the must-see finale, Sax and Happy are locked in a climatic confrontation to rescue Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo) from Very Bad Santa’s (Joseph Reitman) lair, as Merry (Lili Mirojnick) sets out to save Amanda (Medina Senghore) from a far more powerful foe. The series also stars Ritchie Coster (Blue) and Patrick Fischler (Smoothie).

The series returns March 27.

Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds: The First Official Stranger Things Novel 

A mysterious lab. A sinister scientist. A secret history. If you think you know the truth behind Eleven’s mother, prepare to have your mind turned Upside Down in this thrilling prequel to the hit show Stranger Things.

It’s the summer of 1969, and the shock of conflict reverberates through the youth of America, both at home and abroad. As a student at a quiet college campus in the heartland of Indiana, Terry Ives couldn’t be farther from the front lines of Vietnam or the incendiary protests in Washington.

But the world is changing, and Terry isn’t content to watch from the sidelines. When word gets around about an important government experiment in the small town of Hawkins, she signs on as a test subject for the project, code-named MKULTRA. Unmarked vans, a remote lab deep in the woods, mind-altering substances administered by tight-lipped researchers . . . and a mystery the young and restless Terry is determined to uncover.

But behind the walls of Hawkins National Laboratory—and the piercing gaze of its director, Dr. Martin Brenner—lurks a conspiracy greater than Terry could have ever imagined. To face it, she’ll need the help of her fellow test subjects, including one so mysterious the world doesn’t know she exists—a young girl with unexplainable superhuman powers and a number instead of a name: 008.

Amid the rising tensions of the new decade, Terry Ives and Martin Brenner have begun a different kind of war—one where the human mind is the battlefield.

Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds: The first Official Stranger Things Novel by Gwenda Bond will be released on February 5, 2019 and can be ordered HERE.

Watch The John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Trailer

Lionsgate has released the official John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum trailer, featuring John Wick on the run and ready to go to war.

The eponymous John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is on the run in Parabellum for two reasons. One, he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and two, for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. In this case, a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston (Ian McShane), has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s ‘Excommunicado’ – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.

Halle Berry, Angelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Mark Dacascos, and Jason Mantzoukas are also starring in the film alongside Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, and Tiger Hu Chen. Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, and Ruby Rose are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel, with Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine) reportedly playing the main villain.

Once again written by Derek Kolstad with Chad Stahelski returning as director, John Wick 3: Parabellum is set to arrive May 17, 2019.

The world of John Wick will continue to expand as well beyond the third film with the spin-off TV series The Continental in the works at STARZ with acclaimed writer/producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) executive producing; and with the spin-off feature film Ballerina, which follows a child assassin in the world of John Wick.

Ralph Breaks The Internet Comes To Digital On February 12 & Blu-ray On February 26

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” the animated adventure featuring video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman), raced to No. 1 opening weekend (the second biggest Thanksgiving opening of all time), winning the top spot at the domestic box office for three consistent weeks and grossing more than $435.1 million to date. In the hilarious, highspeed sequel to 2012’s Oscar-nominated “Wreck-It Ralph,” the besties risk it all by traveling to the expansive, fast-paced world of the internet in an action-packed attempt to save Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” is available instantly on Digital 4K Ultra HD™/HD/SD and Movies Anywhere Feb. 12 and physically on Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 26.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” arrives home with a wide-range of exclusive extras, taking fans behind the scenes at Walt Disney Animation Studios to explore how artists created the film’s vibrant version of the internet — from comical cat videos to the intense online game Slaughter Race to shady characters on the Dark Net. Features also reveal some Easter eggs — inside jokes and references to other Disney films and characters hidden throughout the film — and filmmakers introduce some never before revealed deleted scenes.  

Directed by Rich Moore (Academy Award-winning “Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” writer, “Cedar Rapids”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt,” “Lilo & Stitch”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” welcomes back favorite cast and characters introduced six years ago, including Reilly, who provides the voice of Ralph, and Silverman, who returns as the voice of Vanellope. Lending a virtual hand to Ralph and Vanellope is Shank, voiced by Gal Gadot, a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces — so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had. Yesss, voiced by Taraji P. Henson, the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site BuzzzTube, makes Ralph a viral sensation. Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch return as the voices of Fix-It Felix Jr. and Sergeant Calhoun, respectively, and Disney Animation’s good luck charm, actor Alan Tudyk was called on to voice a search engine named KnowsMore — literally a know-it-all — who runs a search bar and helps Ralph and Vanellope on their quest. Lots of exciting cameos are also featured in the film including a scene that reunites all of the original (living) Disney Princess voice cast.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” will be packaged and released several different ways, offering families the flexibility to watch the movie instantly and on a variety of different devices of their choosing. The film is available in Digital 4K Ultra HD, HD and SD and physically as a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and Digital Copy), a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy) and a single DVD.

Suntup Editions To Publish Fine Press Edition of Rosemary’s Baby By Ira Levin With Exclusive Introduction By Academy Award Winner Jordan Peele

Suntup Editions, publisher of fine limited edition books and art prints, is delighted to announce the upcoming publication of Ira Levin’s classic novel Rosemary’s Baby, with an exclusive introduction by Academy Award winning writer/director Jordan Peele.  

One of the bestselling horror novels of all-time, Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin is considered by many to be the “grand daddy” of horror fiction. Selling 4 million copies upon its publication in 1967, the novel’s success launched a new wave of books in the horror genre, while critics heralded it “one of the most perfectly crafted thrillers ever written.” Only one year after the novel’s release, Rosemary’s Baby was adapted into an Academy Award winning motion picture directed by Roman Polanski. Author Ira Levin called the film “the single most faithful adaptation of a novel ever to come out of Hollywood.”  

Ira Levin

When Rosemary Woodhouse and her husband Guy, a struggling actor, move into a mysterious old apartment building in New York City, they are immediately greeted by elderly neighbors Roman and Minnie Castavet. Guy is quick to make friends with the eccentric pair, but Rosemary has reservations. Soon thereafter, Guy lands a major role, Rosemary becomes pregnant, and the strange neighbors begin taking a heightened interest in Rosemary’s welfare. As Rosemary’s suspicions grow, she finds herself isolated from her husband, and certain that the Castavets’ intentions are not at all what they seem. 

In 2017, director Jordan Peele cited the novel Rosemary’s Baby among his greatest influences in writing Get Out for which he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, along with nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. Peele has written an introduction to Rosemary’s Baby exclusively for this edition. 

This edition also features an afterword by Ira Levin, originally written for New American Library’s 2003 release. 

About The Edition

This fine press edition of Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin is limited to 267 copies for sale, and is presented in two states: Lettered and Limited. Both editions measure 6¼” x 9¼” and feature six black & white illustrations by Richey Beckett, as well as the introduction by Jordan Peele. Both editions are signed by Richey Beckett and Jordan Peele, and are printed letterpress.

Limited Edition

The Limited edition ($695) is a quarter leather binding and is limited to 250 copies for sale. The leather spine is foil-stamped, and the boards are covered in Japanese cloth. Endpapers feature flecks of metallic gold and silver, and the edition is printed letterpress on Mohawk Superfine. It is housed in a custom cloth-covered slipcase.

 

Lettered Edition

The lettered edition ($3,950) is limited to 26 copies for sale, lettered A-Z and is printed letterpress on Mouldmade Zerkall paper. It is a full leather binding with a foil stamped spine, and glass eyes inset into leather-formed eyelids on the cover. Endpapers are hand marbled in Germany on Hahnemühle Ingres paper. The edition is housed in a custom ‘bassinet’ enclosure with a unique rocking bookbed.

 

Since its launch in late 2016, Suntup Editions has garnered the attention of fans, bloggers, and journalists alike. Their stunning premiere project The Eyes of the Dragon Art Portfolio with Lettered and Numbered Editions signed by David Palladini, along with The Covers Collection, limited edition fine art prints featuring original cover art from the novels by Stephen King, made Suntup Editions the ultimate “one to watch” and one of the fastest rising new printing presses on the scene. 

In early 2018, Suntup Editions announced it would publish the world’s first limited edition of Misery, which was released with not only the blessing but bearing the signature of Stephen King himself. This was followed by the announcement of a limited edition of Shirley Jackson’s classic novel, The Haunting of Hill House, as well as a signed limited edition of Horns by Joe Hill. Rosemary’s Baby will mark Suntup’s fourth book release. 

The mission of the press is to publish finely crafted limited editions, by collaborating with some of today’s leading writers, artists, designers, printers and bookmakers to create an edition that is itself, an art object. By incorporating elements of the story into the design and production of the books, their editions offer a unique reading experience.

Publication is scheduled for Summer 2019 and will be available for pre-order at https://shop.suntup.press from 9:00 am Pacific time on Saturday, January 19, 2019.

Jason Reitman To Direct New Ghostbusters Movie Set In The Original Universe

Entertainment Weekly brings word that Academy Award nominee Jason Reitman will direct and co-write a new Ghostbusters movie, which will be set in the same universe as the first two films. Gil Kenan co-wrote the script with Reitman; Reitman’s father Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two Ghostbusters movies, will produce.

“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman shared. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”

“We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet,” Reitman said, not yet indicating if any of the cast members from the original films will appear. Reitman did indicate that the new movie will not pick up from where the previous Ghostbusters movie in 2016 ended.

“It will be a passing of the torch both inside and out,” Ivan Reitman added. “It was a decision he had to come to himself. He worked really hard to be independent and developed a wonderful career on his own. So I was quite surprised when he came to me with Gil and said, ‘I know I’ve been saying for 10 years I’m the last person who should make a Ghostbusters movie, but…I have this idea.’ Literally, I was crying by the end of it, it was so emotional and funny.”

Sony Pictures will release the film in the summer of 2020 and are aiming to begin production later this year.
