Jump, slash, and dig your way down an ever-changing chasm of mystery in Shovel Knight Dig, an all-new Shovel Knight adventure!"

Paramount Is Planning 2 Very Different Star Trek Movies

Paramount Is Planning 2 Very Different Star Trek Movies
Not one, but two new Star Trek movies are being developed by Paramount. We've known for a bit now that the studio was working on at least a couple of different new Trek related projects, but now Paramount head Jim Gianopulos has confirmed that two different movies in the franchise are in active development, news that was announced during CinemaCon in Las Vegas this past week. Unfortunately, he didn't dish any additional details, but this makes for an interesting confirmation, considering what we already know.

Starting with the more recent development, it came to light in December that Quentin Tarantino is working on a Star Trek Movie with J.J. Abrams. The Pulp Fiction director pitched the idea to Abrams and the duo then took it to Paramount. The studio then assembled a writer's room to flesh out the idea and, ultimately, Mark L. Smith (The Revenant) was hired to pen

Star Trek 4 Makes Franchise History with First Female Director

Star Trek 4 Makes Franchise History with First Female Director
S.J. Clarkson is about to boldly go where no female director has ever gone before, to take the helm of a Star Trek movie. Paramount Pictures announced during their CinemaCon panel today that they are currently developing two separate Star Trek movies, one of which is being developed by Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams, but sources say that project is still being written and would come after Star Trek 4, which S.J. Clarkson has signed on to direct. Star Trek 4 had been in the works for nearly two years, but after Tarantino's Star Trek project got some steam, it wasn't clear if Star Trek 4 would happen, until today, with S.J. Clarkson becoming the first ever female director to take the helm of a Star Trek movie.

Star Trek 4 was first revealed in July 2016, just days before the release of Star Trek Beyond. There were rumors that Chris Hemsworth would

Servant Apple TV+ Series Plot, Cast, Trailer, Release Date, and News

Joseph Baxter Nov 21, 2019

Apple TV+ twisted thriller series Servant manifests from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan.

Servant marks M. Night Shyamalan’s return to television, a medium in which he last endured the 2016 cancellation of his secretly-post-apocalyptic Fox television series, Wayward Pines, after two seasons. However, Shyamalan didn’t have to wait long for his television hopes to rebound, since he subsequently closed a deal with Apple, which will provide his new thriller series a platform with its November-launching Apple TV+ streaming service.

Shyamalan’s Apple deal yielded a 10-episode straight-to-series order for Servant, teaming him with writer and executive producer Tony Basgallop, of Berlin Station, 24: Legacy, 24: Live Another Day and What Remains fame for the mystery series, described as a “psychological thriller.” Interestingly enough, Shyamalan’s Servant will distinguish itself in terms of format, since – contrary to genre convention – it will manifest as a half-hour series,

The Brave Review – Special Ops TV Hopes For A Place That Feels Comfortable

The Brave has an uphill battle to find an audience and that may result in this turning into a show that a lot of people wish they had watched once it gets a few episodes in and struggles in the ratings. It’s fantastically niche for a start, because no matter how much it tries to wedge itself into the mold of popular cop shows, special forces hits and extraction missions just aren’t everyone’s cup of tea.

If that weren’t enough, there is an air of the formulaic about the series which might not go over too well simply because the jump from the war room to the streets and back again reminds too much of too many shows.

Then we have to add in the idea that there are those out there who may be wishing that we would just stop trying to make Anne Heche happen.
