Sting Channels Constantine To Celebrate 30th Anniversary of Hellblazer

In a special video, worldwide music icon Sting reveals he will pen the foreword to the Constantine, Hellblazer: 30th Anniversary Celebration

commemorative collection. Sting’s foreword will take on the perspective of the Golden Boy, Constantine’s alternate-universe twin, touching on his relationship with the occult detective over the years.

In the video, which he took time to film while preparing for his upcoming 44/876 tour with Shaggy, Sting captures the resemblance between himself and the character while wearing the recognizable Constantine trench coat. The musician’s inclusion in the Hellblazer celebration is a nod to the fact that he inspired the antihero’s signature look.

Starting with his first appearance, a debut penned by legendary writer Alan Moore (Watchmen), Constantine has served as an enduring and controversial pop culture character—an exorcist and demonologist, master of the dark arts, and the lead of DC Vertigo’s longest-running and most successful title.

The commemorative collection will explore the complete history of the series with four one-page essays written by Hellblazer author Rich Handley. It will also include a comprehensive timeline of Constantine’s life and three one-page stories featured in John Constantine: Hellblazer issues #1, 2 and 4. Memorable stories from Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Garth Ennis, Brian Azzarello, Paul Jenkins, Jamie Delano and others reflect the best of the long-lasting series, including Hellblazer issues # 11, 27, 41, 63, 120, 146, 229 and 240 and Saga of The Swamp Thing # 37, where the character was officially introduced.

The Constantine, Hellblazer: 30th Anniversary Celebration commemorative collection will be available everywhere books are sold on October 30. Sting’s 44/876 Tour with Shaggy starts on June 19th, please visit www.sting.com for more details.

Get A First Look At Aquaman In This Week’s Issue of Entertainment Weekly

This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story is on the highly anticipated stand-alone Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa.

Aquaman is Warner Bros. and DC’s biggest swing yet, betting huge on a character who was mocked in pop culture for decades. Tapping hulking Game of Thrones star Momoa to introduce a fresh take on the half-Atlantean, half-human Arthur Curry across two previous superhero ensemble films was merely the first step. The next was tapping acclaimed director James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Furious 7) to deliver a fantasy film coming Dec. 21 that’s unlike any we’ve seen before.

Watch The New Grinch Trailer

Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment have debuted a new trailer for The Grinch.

The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism. Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game, Doctor Strange) lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.

Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh. Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?

Directed by Pete Candeland and Yarrow Cheney, and co-directed by Matthew O’Callaghan, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch is adapted from Seuss’ book by Michael LeSieur. It is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri, Janet Healy and Scott Mosier, and executive produced by Audrey Geisel and Chris Renaud.

The animated film based on the Dr. Seuss favorite which hits the big screen on November 9, 2018.

Ewan McGregor To Play Adult Danny Torrance In Doctor Sleep

Ewan McGregor has signed on to star as the adult version of The Shining‘s Danny Torrance in the upcoming feature film adaptation of Doctor Sleep. Stephen King has given his blessing to McGregor’s casting.

Doctor Sleep is set to be directed by Mike Flanagan, making it his second King adaptation after the acclaimed Gerald’s Game. Warner Bros. will release the movie on January 24, 2020.

Published 36 years after The Shining, Doctor Sleep follows an adult Danny Torrance from the original novel. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel, where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant shining power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.” There Dan meets Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival.

It remains to be seen if this film will serve as a standalone movie that acknowledges the storyline of The Shining or if it will in fact be a sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic, which was also distributed by Warner Bros.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure Dumbo expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. 

Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.
