Director Simon McQuoid Returns to Helm ‘Mortal Kombat’ Sequel
Mortal Kombat is coming back for round two. We hope we can at least see an actual tournament this time. Whatever the case, director Simon McQuoid will return to direct all the brutal action.
The synopsis for Mortal Kombat went like this:
Hunted by the fearsome warrior Sub-Zero, MMA fighter Cole Young finds sanctuary at the temple of Lord Raiden. Training with experienced fighters Liu Kang, Kung Lao and the rogue mercenary Kano, Cole prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions to take on the enemies from Outworld in a high-stakes battle for the universe.
The action in the first Mortal Kombat was very well-executed. Plus, it was a great return to the over-the-top action and gore that made up the games. So, on one side that was nice. However, the new character and the fact that the movie found a way to leave out the tournament really took the importance of the Mortal Kombat tournament out of the Mortal Kombat.
Jeremey Slater who wrote on Moon Knight is also going to pen the script for Mortal Kombat. We have been hoping that the mystical and brutal fights on Moon Knight have prepared the writer for creating a heck of a brutal movie when it comes to another round of Mortal Kombat.
There are no plot details at the moment but we will be sure to let you know when we do. We are just hoping that those plot details are very, very gory and contain tons of spines getting pulled out of bodies.
‘The Boogeyman’ Director, Rob Savage Wants to Remake Stephen King’s ‘The Langoliers’
Rob Savage is making the rounds for his adaptation of Stephen King’s The Boogeyman. Of course while out making the rounds he was asked if he wanted to remake any other King books. Of course, he had an answer ready and waiting.
Savage chose King’s The Langoliers. This is a short story from Four Past Midnight that was all about a plane trip that ends up crossing dimensions and meeting up with a deadly being known as The Langoliers who are responsible for eating yesterday.
The synopsis for The Langoliers goes like this:
Ten passengers on a red-eye flight from L.A. to Boston discover that they are not the only people on the plane, but after making an emergency landing in Bangor, Maine, they discover that they are the only people on the planet. This film was based off the Stephen King short story Four Past Midnight.
The Langoliers made for a television movie event. The tv movie mainly flopped and was only remembered for its terrible CG effects for Langolier creatures. But, some, like myself loved the story and the cast that worked on the King project. The whole thing plays out like a Twilight Zone episode and it’s a lot of fun overall.
All that said, it would be great to see what Rob Savage would do the entire project. For one, would he make it into a series with multiple episodes? Or, would he go for the film route?
Did you like The Langoiers? Do you think it needs to be remade? Let us know in the comments section.
Watch ‘Terrifier 2’ Now For Free on Tubi
Terrifier 2 is one of those releases that makes us want to watch it over and over and over again. That re-watchability has pulled us back in a few times. That is why the news that Terrifier 2 being on Peacock for free is so rad. Time to get in a few more rewatches.
The return of Art the Clown managed to bring a hell of a lot of good and bad press with it. The fact that people threw up in theaters… or maybe pretended to sure did make a lot of people come out to see the film. Of course, that is awesome news for the film and its hardworking filmmakers.
The synopsis for Terrifier 2 goes like this:
Resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County to terrorize a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.
If you haven’t watched Terrifier 2 yet what are you waiting for? You need to give it a look. It is one of those incredibly brutal slashers that have staying power.
Head over to Tubi and give Terrifier 2 a watch. If you hadn’t seen it before make sure to let us know what you think.
‘Hocus Pocus 3’ Has Been Confirmed At Disney
Hocus Pocus was a huge hit. The sequel managed to do really well on Disney+ and scared up a whole lot of candy corn and celebration. It managed to be a huge hit over the Halloween season and we were pretty pleased with it ourselves.
Well, the great news is that Disney’s Sean Baily went ahead and straight up confirmed that there will be a third Hocus Pocus film. The involvement of new witches Whitney Bailey, Belissa Escobedo and Lilia Buckingham is all but confirmed.
We could be looking at a stand alone series with the new witches involved or it could be possible that we may see a lot more of The Sanderson Sisters. We are really hoping to see the classic sisters. They are the heart of Hocus Pocus for me and that feeling isn’t going to be replaced anytime soon.
Hocus Pocus 2 went like this:
Three young women accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world.
Are you excited about a sequel to Hocus Pocus? Are you hoping to see more Sanderson Sisters? Let us know in the comments section.
