It's become clear with the changing of the content landscape that Disney has long since abandoned hope of doing what'd it had done for nearly a century – re-releasing their classic films every few years to bring in another round of box office revenues. So instead of still having the originals, we're stuck with their […]

With DC Universe's live-action Swamp Thing less than a month away from its May 31st debut, series star Henderson Wade took to social media on Friday to do two important things: one that was intended, and one that might have been by accident. The former was through a post on his Instagram account that let […]

But the good news didn't end there: during Viacom's presentation at today's Television Critics Association (TCA), the network also […]
It looks like Netflix is ready to learn their secret handshake and sport the decoder ring, as the streaming service is set to host the next chapter of the Italian animated franchise series Winx Club. Originally created by Iginio Straffi in 2004, Netflix's adaptation comes with a very interesting twist: it's a live-action young adult (YA) […]
