When they discover a strange door in their basement, those secrets start to threaten their relationship — and their lives.

Titans

IGN had these first images of Curran Walters as Jason Todd in the Titans TV show.

Showrunner Greg Walker had this to say about the first ever live-action Jason Todd:

What I really love about [Jason] as a character is the unbridled sense of self that he has – there’s a lack of… maybe self-awareness, but for sure self-consciousness in terms of how he comports himself and how he moves through the world. He’s completely seemingly unaffected by darkness – he kind of embraces it or walks right through it. He’s a breath of fresh air and that’s what I love about him, he’s got a punk rock, no-holds-barred attitude that’s massively unburdened. There’s a lot of energy that comes with that.

Warner Bros also released some other photos which show Hawk and Dove – Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson), aka Hawk, and Dawn Granger (Minka Kelly), aka Dove.


Halloween

CineLife Entertainment is releasing a remastered and restored version of the John Carpenter’s Halloween in select US cinemas on 27th October. Dean Cundey, the cinematographer of the first Halloween, oversaw the restoration of the film. “We are thrilled to be a part of the 40th anniversary celebration,” said CineLife’s managing director, Mark Rupp. “Working with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films to bring the most fear-provoking and enduring horror movies of all time to cinema screens around the globe.”

“I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters, as we prepare for the release of the sequel,” added Carpenter. “Having both back in theaters this fall is remarkable.” – EW


The Walking Dead

Appearing at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan on Wednesday touted the continued investment by his cable channels group to get bigger but insisted he had been prudent as his company competes against new industry forces.

When asked about the weaker ratings for AMC hit show The Walking DeadSapan argued the popular series was more of a franchise. “The Walking Dead is a universe…and we have a plan to manage over the next decade, plus. That plan is a careful plan to respect the world of the fans of that world,” he argued, as Sapan pointed to Fear of the Walking Dead as an extension of The Walking Dead franchise – THR


Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla: King of the Monsters has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA.


Quazi
