New Trailer For “Child’s Play” Arrives With Debut of Mark Hamill’s Chucky Voice

Recently, Mark Hamill announced he would be the voice of Chucky in the new “Child’s Play” remake. Fans were excited but skeptical of this news, especially since Hamill’s voice has been lended to some iconic characters in the past. Today, with the first full trailer for “Child’s Play” dropping, we get out first change to hear how this new Chucky will sound.

Check out the trailer below, and make sure to watch until the end to hear Hamill’s voice:

I am very elated to hear Hamill’s voice sounding so differently than what I expected. I think I wasn’t the only person concerned that Chucky would sound too much like The Joker, but this character sounds pretty unique. If I didn’t know it was Hamill, the VO actor would be completely unrecognizable to me.

Child’s Play” arrives in theaters on June 21.

Watch The Trailer For the New “Beetlejuice” Musical

It’s showtime! The new “Beetlejuice” musical is set to open on Broadway very soon, and we now have a trailer to tantalize you with, giving you a first glimpse at what to expect from this new production.

The show, which will be housed in the Winter Garden Theatre, is a direct adaptation of the movie. This new trailer shows you how close it will be to the source material, unlike other geeky Broadway adaptations *cough* spider-man *cough*.

Check out the trailer below:

They are staying true to the Tim Burton aesthetic, down to the sandworms and unique choice of interior decoration. Make sure you watched until the very end to hear one more familiar Harry Belafonte tune that I can not wait to see on the stage!

Alex Brightman stars as Beetlejuice, along with Sophie Anne Caruso as Lydia, Tony nominees Kerry Butler and Rob McClure as Barbara and Adam, Leslie Kritzer and Adam Dannheisser as Delia and Charles, and Kelvin Moon Loh as Otho.

“Beetlejuice” opens April 25, with previews going on right now. Tickets are available at this link here, but your chances of getting those seats are highly improbable. Instead, use this link here to access the Beetlejuice ticket lottery.

Mark Hamill Becomes Voice Of Chucky In “Child’s Play” Reboot

The “Child’s Play” remake is moving along and nearing completion in time for a summer release. Not too long ago, we saw the first trailer for the film, but it neglected to reveal who the voice of the killer doll was. Now, we know who that is – and it’s legendary VO actor Mark Hamill.

Hamill made the announcement in a tweet addressing attendees of Wondercon, where he explained his excitement for the role and his hopes to “have some fun”:

Check out the tweet below:

I am always elated to see Mark Hamill working, especially in VO, but this is a role I am not too interested in seeing his take on. Hamill’s voice is so iconic, and also so familiar due to his decades of work in animation.

I was hoping “Child’s Play’ would take a note from the “It” remake and cast someone lesser known, to really make the role a surprise in many way. We know what Mark Hamill is capable of, and that voice is hard to mask. It’ll be hard not to visualize The Joker or another character he gave life to in the past, but I hope I’ll be wrong about that and Hamill delivers something new and different.

“Child’s Play” comes out this summer on June 21, 2019.

Critters Are Back In New Streaming Series, Aptly Titled “Critters: A New Binge”

Remember “Critters”? The bizarre movie about carnivorous tribbles from the 80’s that spawned three sequels? Yeah, that one. Well, they’re back, and they have a brand new series that will be streaming online very soon.

“Critters: A New Binge” is a new series developed for Shudder, an online streaming service that specializes in horror. It continues the adventures of the movies, harkening back to its predecessors but with a modern twist.

Check out the trailer below (which is a bit gory so may be NSFW):

Here is the official synopsis:

Critters: A New Binge is a comedy-horror Shudder exclusive series that picks up the tale of the Critters – hairy, carnivorous, insatiable aliens – from the beloved 1980s film franchise. Pursued by intergalactic bounty hunters, the Critters return to Earth on a secret mission and encounter Christopher, a lovelorn high-schooler, his best friend Charlie, his crush Dana, and his mom Veronica – whose past will come back to bite them. Who will survive? And who will be eaten?

Meanwhile, a new Critters film just wrapped filming for SyFy, so it’s a good time to be a Critters fan.

Chucky Is Back To His Roots With A Modern Twist In New “Child’s Play” Trailer

Nothing is safe from remakes, but in some rare cases, those remakes may be the best thing to do with an outdated movie franchise. Case in point, everyone’s favorite slasher doll, Chucky. His last batch of movies were B-rated schlock at best, and borderline comedy films. In 2019, he’s back, and he’s ditched the jokes for something more sinister.

Check out the trailer below:

This rendition of Chucky seems to keep intact the sensibilities of the original 1988 film, but modernizing it both bringing the doll into the modern world of play as well as the methods of terror. Director Lars Klevberg has said that this ideation of the crazed doll will not be one possessed by a serial killer, but a cyborg gone out of control.

The film stars Gabriel Bateman, Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry and Tim Matheson. The voice of Chucky is still being left a mystery, as is his appearance.

The new Child’s Play will arrive in theaters on June 21.

Bring Out Your Dead With New “Pet Sematary” Trailer

That kitty ain’t so cute no more! This morning, Paramount released the first full trailer for their “Pet Sematary” re-make, starring Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, and John Lithgow. Check out the video below:

Here is the official synopsis from Paramount:

Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, (#StephenKing) #PetSematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (#JohnLithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.

The original book was released in 1983, and adapted into a film for the first time in 1989.

It was a box office hit, costing $11.5 million and earning $57.5 million by the end of its run. Will this remake have the same luck? Time, and discerning audiences, will tell.

Mezco reveals “Living Dead Dolls” Jack Torrance ahead of NY Toy Fair 2019

NY Toy Fair 2019 is just a few weeks away, but the reveals have already begun for many companies.

Mezco is one of those companies that come out strong during the show, with loads of new products on display at the event. Before the doors of the Javits center have opened, the company has given us a sneak peek reveal of a new item that will be on display.

The toy, which will be a part of their acclaimed “Living Dead Dolls” series, was revealed in their blog:

While the LDD line is littered with creepy and bloody characters, this one may be the most chilling. The stark facial expression of Jack Torrance from “The Shining” film is certainly shocking, and will be a fine addition for collectors of horror toys.

Equally important, this means Mezco may hold the license to this film for other toys, including One:12 – imagine a One:12 Jack Torrance! This could also potentially open the door for other Stephen King properties in Mezco’s repetoire – fingers crossed!

Jack Torrance is the main protagonist of Stephen King’s The Shining (1977). Jack was nominated as the 25th greatest film villain of all time by The American Film Institute.

Mezco has promised another reveal coming soon before Toy Fair kicks off, so stay tuned for what is next!

LEGENDARY AND WARNER BROS. PICTURES ANNOUNCE CINEMATIC FRANCHISE UNITING GODZILLA, KING KONG AND OTHER ICONIC GIANT MONSTERS

godzilla-1954-main-reviewFollowing Legendary’s and Warner Bros. Pictures’ 2014 success with the global reinvention of the Godzilla franchise, the companies have come together to create an epic, new shared cinematic franchise. All-powerful monsters become towering heroes for a new generation, revealing a mythology that brings together Godzilla and Legendary’s King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant super-species, both classic and new. Monarch, the human organization that uncovered Godzilla in the 2014 film, will expand their mission across multiple releases.

The announcement that the reinvention of monsters continues was made today by Legendary CEO, Thomas Tull and Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. The initial trio of films are 2017’s KONG: SKULL ISLAND, GODZILLA 2 in 2018 and then GODZILLA VS. KONG, arriving in theaters in 2020. While Legendary maintains its new home at Universal Pictures, the GODZILLA films remain in partnership with Warner Bros., who will now also distribute KONG as a part of this franchise. Production on KONG: SKULL ISLAND begins October 19th.

Warner Bros. and Legendary released Godzilla in May 2014 with an agreement to release Godzilla 2 on June 8, 2018. Both films feature the human Monarch organization. Shortly following Legendary’s pact with NBC Universal, Legendary acquired rights to additional classic characters from Toho’s Godzilla universe, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah. This paved the way for developing a franchise centered around Monarch and anchored by Godzilla, King Kong, and other famous creatures.

When Legendary announced films centered on Godzilla and Kong, fans all over the world speculated these two characters might one day meet in the same film. Classic Toho monsters including King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan, as announced at Comic-Con 2014, may also join the Legendary pantheon of giant monster mayhem going forward.

“Audiences really responded to Godzilla,” stated Tull. “Today, I’m excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe. As a lifelong fan of these characters, I’ve always wanted to see the ultimate showdown, and today we’re pleased to be announcing that and more.”

“Working with our partners at Legendary, we enjoyed tremendous creative and commercial success with `Godzilla,’” said Tsujihara. “It’s great to be able to revisit these characters and help create a franchise with so many creative possibilities for filmmakers. Fans love these big, globally iconic films and it doesn’t get any bigger than this.”

Ada Wong & Agent Hunt Mode set for Resident Evil 6

It’s been announced earlier this week that Ada Wong, first appearing in Resident Evil 2, will be a playable character with her own individual campaign in Resident Evil 6. This single player experience is set to feature missions unique to Ada, providing a different perspective on the bioterrorist outbreaks happening all over the world threatening the extinction of the human race. Ada Wong’s campaign becomes unlocked once players completed campaign mode for Leon, Chris and Jake.

Another mode to be featured in Resident Evil 6 is the ability to experience action as a zombie, J’avo or other C-virus mutations in the new online mode, titled Agent Hunt. Players will be able to infiltrate other players’ sessions as hunters with the intention of eliminating the human characters involved. These hunters will have access to unique movements and attacks exclusive to each character that would previously be encountered as enemies in campaign mode, including the various J’avo transformations. The way you would unlock Agent Hunt mode will work the same way you would unlock Ada Wong’s campaign mode; by beating Leon, Chris, and Jake’s campaigns.

When creating a Resident Evil 6 gameplay session a player will have the option to allow or not allow Agent Hunt mode,  Hunters searching for a session in levels Agent Hunt is available to join will jump into that session if allowed by the host, then those hunters can either be a single human player with an AI partner or work with a friend in co-op mode. Up to two separate hunters are able to join any given Agent Hunt session, and if a hunter dies, they respawn in the same session as a different randomized enemy from that area. If the hunter eliminates an agent, however, the agent’s session will end exactly as if they had been playing a standard game session with CPU enemies while the hunter is given the option to join another session. If the hunter quits mid-game, the agent’s game continues as usual with all CPU enemies.
