Help The Movie Crypt to Save The Yorkies AGAIN!



Last year Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Arwen, and many others did something incredibly cool by holding a weekend-long event as a means to Save the Yorkies! You know, those cute little four-legged things which look like Chewbacca was shrunk down to fun-size! This December they’re doing it again.

Over the weekend of December 8th, Joe, Arwen, and I will be doing our 2nd annual 48-hour LIVE Movie Crypt charity marathon to benefit SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE,” says Green. “We’re staying awake so that they don’t get put to sleep. Many of you joined us for last year’s event when we raised about $14,000 for the dog rescue. Not only was it the most amount of money that the rescue had ever received from a single fundraiser, but the broadcast also broke the world record for the longest ever live podcast.”


Green continues, “If you’re unfamiliar with the 48-hour benefit event… Joe, Arwen, and I stay on the air live from Friday at 5pm until Sunday at 5pm, going around the clock with an array of special guests joining us non-stop. Featuring extensive artist interviews, musical performances, improv/stand-up comedy, script readings (last year’s live reading of a never before seen early draft of THE GOONIES was a huge highlight), movie commentaries, clairvoyant/tarot card readings, and more… ANYTHING goes! It is an incredibly fun event to take part in, and best of all – it is all to help save dogs! SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE is a non-profit rescue that uses all of the money donated to help foster, shelter, and provide direly needed medical attention to rescued/abused Yorkies nationwide. We know there are countless other charities out there doing amazing work for animals and people, but since our show’s mascot Arwen is a Yorkie and since SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE is a smaller, independent rescue mission that is fully reliant on donations alone to operate – this is the charity that we benefit with this event each year.”

And boy do they need help! Some of the stories are absolutely horrific – so I’ll spare you the massive list of upsetting examples. However, one positive story that I’d like to share from last year’s marathon (because it has a happy ending) is the story of “Phantom.” A 6-month-old Yorkshire terrier, “Phantom” was rescued from her abusive owner after he held her face against a burning a stove in an effort to stop her from barking at the front door. “Phantom” was in desperate need of immediate surgery to save her nasal cavity and vision. Using funds from last year’s marathon, SAVE A YORKIE RESCUE was able to get “Phantom” into surgery the very next morning after the marathon. Today “Phantom” is living a wonderful life with her new, forever family. She can SEE, BREATHE, and TASTE; and most importantly, she’ll never again know fear, pain, or suffering. I wish I could say that “Phantom” is the most severe example of abuse that the rescue deals with, but sadly she is not. Again, I’ll spare you the many other horrifying examples set to Sarah McLachlan songs and instead just focus on the fact that together we are able to make a huge difference and provide a second chance for these wonderful animals. As dog rescuers and gigantic animal lovers ourselves, Joe and I hope with all of our hearts that you will consider joining us and taking part in this year’s event!

The special 3-day live broadcast will be available to listen to directly on Listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions and post comments for Green, Lynch, and their guests through their Twitter accounts (@Adam_Fn_Green, @TheJoeLynch, and @MovieCrypt) as well as watch and take part in live Periscope broadcasts on Green’s Periscope channel (@Adam_Fn_Green) throughout the weekend. “The Movie Crypt’s” dedicated link to donate directly to “Save a Yorkie Rescue, Inc.” will be posted and given out consistently throughout the 3-day broadcast.

The Duffer Brothers Have Begun Working on Stranger Things 3



I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first season of Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ “Stranger Things” to tell you the truth. That said, I absolutely loved the second season (read our reviews HERE).

It is with this in mind that we are all looking forward to “Stranger Things 3”.

Recently Deadline reported that at Vulture Festival LA the Duffer Brothers, producer Shawn Levy, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen talked about season two and teased season three.

“We are [in] very early days on season three, and we’re still figuring it out,” Ross Duffer said, before taking a beat, then adding: “I probably wasn’t supposed to say that. That’s not official; that wasn’t an official announcement — we’re just working on it, just for our own amusement… for fun!”


We all know at this point that there is going to be a “Stranger Things 3” and that The Duffer Brothers will one day begin working on it. Don’t worry so much, Ross Duffer.

After all, your brother already let us know that season three will begin after a time jump:

“Even if we wanted to hop into the action faster, we couldn’t,” says Matt Duffer. “Our kids are aging. We can only write and produce the show so fast. They’re going to be almost a year older by the time we start shooting season three. It provides certain challenges. You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. It’s a long way of saying that yeah, we’re going to do a time jump.”

What did you think of “Stranger Things 2”? Did you dig it more (or less) than season one? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

“Stranger Things 2” is currently streaming on Netflix.

It’s 1984, and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down, but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

James Cameron’s Terminator Reboot/Sequel Hires Screenwriter



The last word we brought you guys on producer James Cameron and Deadpool-director Tim Miller’s new Terminator film was when we let you know that Paramount had set the film’s release date for July 26, 2019.

Today we have news via The Wrap that the studio is bringing in screenwriter Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) to pen the movie’s script based on a story crafted by Cameron.

You may remember that Cameron and Miller created a writers room a while back to plan out an all-new trilogy of films, but while that writer’s room included David Goyer, Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman, it seems like Ray will be the first film’s sole writer. For now.

Story details are, of course, being kept under wraps, but Cameron and Miller are treating the new movie as a direct sequel to Cameron’s T2: Judgment Day.

“This is a continuation of the story from ‘Terminator 1’ and ‘Terminator 2.’ And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream,” Cameron told THR. “Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse.”

We also know that Cameron plans to center the new film/trilogy around a new group of younger characters, who will eventually carry on the baton as it were.

“A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters,” Cameron said. “We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it.”

How excited are you for James Cameron’s new Terminator flick? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social mdeia!

The new Terminator film is produced by James Cameron and will be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool). The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

Terminator 2.5 is expected to hit July 26, 2019.
