"Legion" Season 3, Episode 4: "Chapter 23" Time Demons Say Hey

“Legion” Season 3, Episode 4: “Chapter 23” Time Demons Say Hey

Legion has never been a show that I would call reserved. Nothing about that show, from the first episode forward, has been anything less than a full-tilt assault on the senses. Even episode 22, which introduced Charles Xavier (Harry Lloyd) and Gabrielle Haller (Stephanie Corneliussen ) in a relatively bug-out free excursion, still managed to […]

“Legion” S03, Ep01: Time Travel Done Right (Spoiler Review)

  Legion is back to mess with our minds with a brand new third season. Some things have definitely changed since last we saw David (Dan Stevens) and his friends, and writer Noah Hawley throws some chaos into the mix by introducing a new character into the mix. Switch (Lauren Tsai) is a mutant in […]

'Child's Play' Reboot Director Considers the "Greek Tragedy" of Chucky

“Child’s Play” Review: Chucky Gets an Upgrade, and it Works

Walking into the new reboot of Child’s Play, one would be forgiven for expecting the worst. More than most franchises, this one has stayed relatively healthy over the years, surviving by reinventing itself and finding success on the straight to disc/streaming side of things. When the reboot was announced, it was a surprise, especially since […]

Aubrey Plaza Licks Stephen Colbert in Catwoman Audition for The Batman

Aubrey Plaza Licks Stephen Colbert in Catwoman Audition for The Batman

It’s become a matter of routine over the past few years for actors to publicly declare their interest in playing a particular superhero character.  So routine, that it’s almost never newsworthy anymore — and of course, it rarely if ever works.  But I kind of love the way that Aubrey Plaza went for it on […]

New Chucky Doll Looks Ready for Some 'Childs Play'

Chucky Just Wants to Play in New ‘Child’s Play’ Trailer

The full trailer for Child’s Play has been unleashed, and it looks terrifying. This is the stuff of my nightmares. Watch it below, in it you can hear Mark Hamill‘s Chucky voice for the first time as well. In the new Child’s Play, Mark Hamill will play a sinister entity that has been updated to […]

Mark Hamill is the Voice of Chucky in New ‘Child’s Play’

Mark Hamill has a new gig, and it is terrifying. He will be providing the voice of Chucky in the new Child’s Play film, hitting theaters this summer. Hamill is an iconic voice performer, as we all know, and will be providing nightmare fuel for this writer for the next 30 years after also portraying […]

CHILD'S PLAY Official Trailer (2019)

Wanna Play? Check Out the First Trailer For the Child’s Play Remake

The first trailer for the new take on Chucky has arrived. Child’s Play is coming back to theaters this summer, and it is even more terrifying than before. While we don’t get a full look at the murderous doll here, he certainly seems to be up to his old tricks. That means that I have […]

The Most Spectacular Weirdo is Hosting the Spirit Awards!

First, a bit of bad news: John Mulaney and Nick Kroll will not be hosting the 2019 Spirit Awards. I am just as sad as you are, because less Mulaney and Kroll makes for a very sad panda. But there is a ray of weirdo sunshine behind this news: Aubrey Plaza, the brilliantly deadpan comedian, […]

Brian Tyree Henry Shares Video from Child’s Play Reboot

While we’re still not sure which side of the dualing Child’s Play / Chucky projects we’re on, there are some interesting updates coming out of the MGM reboot currently filming. One such thing is a set video shared by Brian Tyree Henry on his Instagram account, where he totally punks the cast of young actors and actresses. […]

Aubrey Plaza In Talks for Child’s Play Reboot for MGM

We literally said out loud, “But is this the good Child’s Play thing, with Don Mancini?” when prepping to write about this.  Because, as you may know, there is another reboot of Child’s Play currently in development on the film side, one which “Chucky Daddy” Mancini (co-writer) is NOT a part of. This project sounds like the one MGM […]

[UPDATED] Legion Season 2 Recapped at SDCC

Info courtesy of Bleeding Cool’s Marcos Salinas: A trippy Legion season 2 recap just aired at the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and we’re going to break it down for you now in the most descriptive manner we can. The recapopens with an egg cracking open, and a black mass extends out of the shell. A […]

Let’s Talk About ‘Legion’ Season 2 Premiere, “Chapter 9”

One of the surprise series to come with the superhero swarm of shows on tv is Legion. I say surprise because let’s be honest here, the majority of us had no idea it was going to be as amazingly trippy as it was (and is). The story of mutants and mental powers being told in the […]

Legion season 2

Watch: Legion Season 2 Full Trailer Hits, is a Fever Dream Dance Spectacular

One of the most delightful TV surprises of 2017 was FX’s Legion, a wonderfully trippy and more Lynchian than Twin Peaks: The Return show featuring a stylish horror surrealist twist on the comic book genre. We’ve been anxiously awaiting the full trailer drop after several small teaser trailers have been scattered across the last month, and this morning […]

‘Legion’ Season 2- First Look Arrives In FX Fearless Teaser Trailer

Arguably one of the breakout television series of 2017 was FX’s Legion from Noah Hawley.  The X-Men based show followed the main character of psychokinetic David Haller (Dan Stevens) as he struggled with hallucinations and a government entity trying to control him. This morning FX released a trailer for their upcoming 2018 slate of shows titled “Fearless in […]

The Weekly Static s01e21: TV’s Top 5 Screw-Ups of 2017

We’ll be getting back to the regular The Weekly Static grind next week; but this week, we’re wrapping up 2017 in a pretty little bow with a look back at the five biggest television screw-ups from the past year. From corporate censorship and questionable career choices to really bad hair days and a disappointing Today, […]


‘Legion’ Creator Noah Hawley Discusses Emmy Awards Snub

The Emmy nominations came out yesterday, and there’s some really great stuff on there (RuPaul’s Drag Race got eight Emmy nominations! I’m sorry, I freakin’ love that show), but there was one very noticeable absence: there was not a single nomination for FX’s critically acclaimed X-Men adaptation Legion. Based on the character of David Haller (AKA […]

Mindless Speculation – Readjusting The Astonishing X-Men Villain Theory

A while back, when news broke about the new Astonishing X-Men series from Charles Soule and a rotating cavalcade of various artists, I posited a theory as to just who the big bad of the series would be. I had assumed Cassandra Nova, a character whose first major action against mutant-kind involved genocide of the […]

Silence Reigns In New Legion Preview

In a brief promo for FX‘s Legion, David Haller and Lenny — played by Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza — trade glances while looking on at another patient in their sanitarium. Of course, it is unclear who is the furthest gone. Legion comes to FX in 2017.
