Pet Sematary Exhumed: Stephen King Looks Back At His Most Disturbing Story

Stephen King calls one morning to set up an interview — and he’s singing.

“I hear you want to talk about… ‘I don’t wanna be burrrried / in a PET Sem-a-taar-yyy!’” the best-selling author croons over long distance.

The Ramones based that pop-goth song on his 1983 novel, it was featured in the creeptastic cult-favorite 1989 movie, and now — as most things associated with this tale — it gets to live its life again as part of the haunting new version of Pet Sematary hitting theaters April 5.

It stars Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz as parents who move their family to the edge of the Maine woods, where there is a hidden place that resurrects the dead. Lithgow costars as a kindly neighbor, who reveals secrets best left buried, and Jeté Laurence plays their curious daughter, Ellie, who has too much curiosity for her own good.

King has a complex relationship with Pet Sematary. Over the decades, the 71-year-old storyteller has done a lot of monstrous things to a lot of people in his novels, but the rumor persists that he thinks Pet Sematary crossed a line, that it’s too morbid and troubling, and he only published it to escape a book contract.

It turns out all that is real.

So is a lot of what happened in the book. That’s why it bothers him.

Entertainment Weekly’s Captain Marvel Cover Story

She’s an all-powerful Air Force pilot from outer space. He’s a government desk jockey with zero extraterrestrial experience. This intergalactic odd couple forms the backbone of Captain Marvel (out March 8), the 1990s-set film that follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and an orange cat named Goose as they try to stop invading aliens from treating Planet Earth as their next battlefield.

It’s a playful, trash-talking relationship based in reality. Since starring together in 2017’s Kong: Skull Island and Larson’s directorial debut, Unicorn Store (premiering April 5 on Netflix), Larson and Jackson have become the kind of buddies who lean on each other’s shoulders in interviews and finish each other’s sentences. “Marvel was like, ‘Is there anybody that you’d wanna do [the movie] with?’” Larson recalls. “And I was like, ‘Please. I need to be with my pal. Don’t let me do it alone!’”

Ahead of Captain Marvel’s release, Larson and Jackson sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk aliens, Jedi masters, and the magnitude of Marvel fame. (They also opened up about their scene-stealing costar: Goose the cat.)

And as a special bonus, EW is honoring Captain Marvel’s retro setting by taking this week’s cover back to 1995, complete with old fonts and logos. Make sure to pick up a copy on stands Friday to experience the full issue in all its throwback glory.

Jackson, Jude Law, Lashana Lynch, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Gemma Chan, and more — but we also have exclusive stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and production art.

Read An Excerpt From Stephen King’s Next Novel, The Institute

Yesterday, Stephen King announced on his website the publication of his next novel: The Institute. Now, Entertainment Weekly has your exclusive first look at the book.

As a refresher, here’s the official synopsis:

“In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders murder Luke Ellis’ parents and load him into a black SUV. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents — telekinesis and telepathy — who got to this place the same way Luke did. In this most sinister of institutions, the staff is ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. As each new victim disappears, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from The Institute.”

The Institute publishes September 10 and is available for pre-order.

First Official Look At Brie Larson As Captain Marvel Revealed

Entertainment Weekly has revealed their new Marvel-ous cover of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel! 

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Brie Larson is joined in the film by Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, with Annette Bening, and Jude Law. Reprising their roles from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace, and returning once again to a Marvel Studios film will be Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, whose credits include Mississippi Grind and Half Nelson. An all-star collective of accomplished writers penned the screenplay, including Meg LeFauve (Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur), Nicole Perlman (First Man, Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider, upcoming Sherlock Holmes 3), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (Glow), and Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck.

Composer Pinar Toprak will be composing the score for the film. This will mark the first time a female composer has been tapped to compose the entire score for a major superhero film, let alone a movie for Marvel Studios. Born in Turkey, Toprak’s previous credits include the SYFY series Krypton, smaller films like The Lightkeepers, and even the popular video game Fortnite. Toprak also previously worked on the Justice League movie, contributing additional music to the film.

Check Out The Shazam! Entertainment Weekly Cover

The upcoming DC superhero film Shazam! has landed on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring Zachary Levi bringing out his inner child. The issue will be handed out for free at San Diego Comic Con.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

The cast includes Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson, Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Wizard, and Mark Strong (Kingsman) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. The film also stars Jack Dylan Grazer (IT) as Billy’s best friend and ultimate superhero enthusiast, Freddy, part of the foster family that includes Mary, played by Grace Fulton (Annabelle: Creation); Darla, played by Faithe Herman (This is Us); Eugene, played by Ian Chen (Fresh Off the Boat); and Pedro, played by Jovan Armand (Hawaii Five-0). Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) and Marta Milans (Killer Women) play foster parents Victor and Rosa Vasquez.

David F. Sandberg is directing for New Line Cinema. The Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation director will step behind the camera with Peter Safran producing. Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke wrote the script for Shazam!

Created in 1939 by artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, Shazam first appeared in Fawcett Comics’ Whiz Comics #2. By saying the world “Shazam,” teenager Billy Batson was transformed into the “world’s mightiest mortal” and given extraordinary abilities by ancient gods.

Shazam! will debut in theaters on April 5, 2019.
