Watch The Castle Rock Teaser From Stephen King & J.J. Abrams

Bad Robot Productions released a cryptic teaser trailer for a new Hulu original series that reteams J.J. Abrams and Stephen King called Castle Rock.

The Bad Robot Twitter account posted a photo featuring Abrams’ stationary bearing a handwritten note that included a YouTube link, which leads to this Castle Rock teaser.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Castle Rock will be a Hulu anthology series that brings together the characters and themes of King’s works that involve Castle Rock. If multiple seasons are made, the show will center on different groups of characters each season while also introducing elements from prior seasons.

Castle Rock is the name of a fictional location in Maine that has been the site of a number of King’s stories, including The Dead Zone and Cujo, and also referenced in a number of other King stories like It and Pet Semetary. The trailer itself also makes references to a number of other King works, including The Shawshank Redemption, Misery, The Shining, and more, so it remains unclear how far-reaching Castle Rock will be in its connections to King’s novels and short stories.

Bad Robot’s photo, in addition to the YouTube link, also included the mysterious sentence, “What is the hoax in the forest?”

No other details, including a release date, have been revealed so far, though King himself tweeted that “J.J. Abrams and I want to invite you to take a trip to Castle Rock. Soon. Be afraid.”

King and Abrams previously collaborated on the Hulu adaptation of King’s novel 11/22/63.

Legion On FX

tvnmroq

Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.

Watch The Stranger Things Season Two Trailer

The world is turning upside down on Halloween.

Season two of Stranger Things will make its debut on Netflix on the spooky holiday.

The release date was announced in a Super Bowl spot for the show, which built a cult following after its summer 2016 debut.

The show, created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, takes place in a small town in Indiana in 1983, just after a 12-year-old boy named Will goes missing. His friends and mom Joyce (played by Winona Ryder), spend much of the eight-episode series trying to find him. In the process, they encounter top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).

The Super Bowl ad featured footage from a classic Eggo commercial that debuted in 1979 and aired in the ’80s. According to a description from Netflix, Season 2 is set a year after Will’s return.

“A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal,” Netflix said in a release. “But a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.”

NBC has released the official trailer for Powerless, their upcoming comedy television show set in the DC Universe about a team of clever heroes who help to protect the public from the dangers of real superhero battles. The show will star Alan Tudyk as Van Wayne (Bruce Wayne‘s cousin), Danny Pudi as Teddy, Vanessa Hudgens as Emily Locke, Ron Funches as Ron, and Christina Kirk as Jackie. Powerless is set to premiere on NBC Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 at 8:30 EST.

In the first comedy series set in the DC universe, Vanessa Hudgens (“Grease Live,” “High School Musical”) plays Emily, a spunky, young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. It’s when she stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures (after an epic battle messes with her commute) that she accidentally becomes a cult “hero” in her own right… even if it’s just to her group of lovably quirky co-workers. Now, while she navigates her normal, everyday life against an explosive backdrop, Emily might just discover that being a hero doesn’t always require superpowers.

Kotobukiya DC Comics Batman Animated ARTFX+ Statue

Kotobukiya’s awesome 1/10th scale DC Comics collection has brought you New 52 heroes and villains, Classic Costume retro-inspired figures, and more, and now it expands into a whole new world with one of the most popular incarnations of the Dark Knight ever, Batman Animated! That’s right, Batman: The Animated Series is the inspiration behind this new statue, and it perfectly recreates the Caped Crusader in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style.

Batman is captured in a wide stance, ready to spring into action against the superstitious, cowardly lot if bad guys who call Gotham City home. Bruce Wayne has never looked better with his chunky proportions and bold costume, primarily gray and black with a bright yellow utility belt, black and yellow bat-symbol, and a cool blue shadow effect on the inside of his cape. Of course, all of the familiar bat elements are included like the scalloped cutouts on his cape, pointy cowl, and the blades on his forearms.

Best of all, Batman comes with multiple interchangeable parts so you can customize your display with three different sets of eyes (normal, squinting, and “weak”), three facial expressions (open mouth, scowl, and clenched teeth), and three poses for the right hand (thumbs up, holding a batarang, or holding a grapnel gun)! Sculpted by Keita Misonou, Batman Animated stands just under 7 ½ inches tall (1/10th scale) on his included display base with perfect stability. He’s the perfect centerpiece for your Batman collection and looks great alongside other Batman statues from Kotobukiya.

Check out some pics of the figure — which is currently available to order HERE for $49.99.
