20th Century Disney to remake AND THEN THERE WERE NONE.

Cool. But: a “fresh take?”

Seberg screenwriters and husband-and-wife writing partners Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel have been set by 20th Century Studios to adapt the Agatha Christie classic And Then There Were None. Disney will keep the film in its pre-World War II period in which Christie wrote the novel, but with a fresh take.

The oddly Protean THE HUNT trailer.

It’s like a mini-Rorschach test.

Movie of the Week: ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES is actually available on Amazon Prime. You could watch it for free. I am watching it for free right now. But I’m tempted to get the DVD anyway. Because my God but it’s a glorious piece of crap.

The “Inject this into my VEINS” THE VAST OF NIGHT Amazon trailer.

This is the aesthetic. THE VAST OF NIGHT has the aesthetic that I crave.

Why yes, Amazon, I would very much like a late 50s period piece about spooky Atomic Age aliens in New Mexico starring a nerdcore science girl with a smoking twang and Angie Dinkley glasses. How thoughtful of you! I look forward to seeing it on March 13th.

THE OSCARS Honest Trailer.

Not bad; Honest Trailers was perhaps a little unfair to some of the films that I saw and liked, but everybody probably feels the same way about the films that they liked. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD absolutely should walk away with the awards, mind you. It’s Tarantino’s best work*.

The Turn of the Wheel: Sam Raimi in talks to direct DOCTOR STRANGE 2.

I’ll allow it.

Sam Raimi, who helped launch the modern superhero movie with 2002’s “Spider-Man,” is in talks to direct “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” for Marvel Studios, Variety has learned.

Raimi replaces original director Scott Derrickson, who Variety reported on Jan. 9 had officially departed the project due to creative differences. Derrickson will remain as an executive producer. Raimi, meanwhile, will need to get up to speed before the film’s scheduled production start date in May.

The ALTERED CARBON Season 2 teaser trailer.

I didn’t actually finish Season 1 of ALTERED CARBON, and I’m not sure why. I liked it! But I got distracted, and never went back to it. But Anthony Mackie’s a nice choice for the new season, so maybe I will get back to it.

Season 2 of THE MANDALORIAN dropping in October 2020.

Nobody reading this will probably be all that surprised, of course. Disney was about as likely to not renew THE MANDALORIAN as they would be to suddenly declare everything in their catalog before 2000 AD to be public domain. But, you know, it’s nice to have a date. Certainly the people in charge of making sure that there are BABY YODAS FOR CHRISTMAS THIS TIME, BOB* will be thrilled for the heads-up.
