AMC’s Preacher Renewed for Season Three

Published

on

I’m not going to lie and tell you guys that I’ve been a good “Preacher” fan. Truth be told, I haven’t been keeping up with the AMC series from executive producer Seth Rogen.

Not that I didn’t like the little I saw from Season One. I just have a watch-list ten miles long, and “Preacher” is… well, it’s on there somewhere along with shows like “Ozark.”

I’ll get to it one day.

But it seems plenty of folks are doing the series a solid and tuning in weekly, as Seth Rogen just announced over Twitter that AMC has renewed the horror-action series for a third season coming our way in 2018. Let us rejoice!

About the Series:
Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, “Preacher” is an absurdly twisted and action-packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip (Ruth Negga), Jesse’s volatile true love, and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), a 119-year-old Irish vampire and Jesse’s best mate. The gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable killer cowboy from Hell.

The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Neighbors 2, Superbad) and showrunner Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”). The series is executive produced by Catlin as well as Rogen, Goldberg, and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures; Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film; and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Ken F. Levin, Michael Slovis, and the author of the Preacher graphic novel, Garth Ennis.

Wes Craven’s SWAMP THING Finally Coming to Blu-ray in the UK this September

Published

on

Although it’s certainly not considered to be one of his best films, I’ll always have a soft spot for Wes Craven’s Swamp Thing. Based on the DC Comics character, the film opened to mixed reviews when it was originally released in 1982, although it since gone on the earn a cult following, and even spawned both a sequel and a live action TV series spinoff.

88 Films will finally release Swamp Thing on Blu-ray in the UK on September 10, which will be the first time the film has been available on the format in the country. Extras will include two separate audio commentaries, one by Craven himself, and the other by critic and fan Ian Jane, and an interview with production designer Robb Wilson King. More extras will be announced closer to the date of release, although we know that the Blu-ray will come will also come with a booklet by critic Calum Waddell. The box art revealed on 88 Films’ Facebook page also promises that it will include a limited edition slipcase.

Swamp Thing starred Ray Wise as the scientist Alec Holland, with Dick Durock his titular monstrous alter ego. The supporting cast include Adrienne Barbeau, David Hess, Nicholas Worth, and Louis Jourdan. Whilst it was notably lighter in tone than most of the films that shaped Craven’s career, it’s still a film that all horror fans should watch at least once.

UK readers can pre-order their Blu-ray copy of Swamp Thing on Amazon.

First Look – GOOSEBUMPS: HAUNTED HALLOWEEN

Published

on

I’m really looking forward to the upcoming sequel to the Jack Black kid-horror flick Goosebumps. I enjoyed the books as a kid and dug the 2015 movie more than I ever thought I would.

And speaking of Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween, today we have your first look at Ken Jeong in the film. The actor dropped the first look image over on Twitter and you can check it out below.

He’s dressed as Frankenstein’s monster, but this looks to be part of a Halloween party so I don’t think he’s actually playing that part… But I guess we’ll see.

The film is directed by Ari Sandel and stars Madison Iseman, Ben O’Brien, Caleel Harris, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ken Jeong, and Chris Parnell.

Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween hits October 12th.
