The Hulu-Blumhouse holiday horror anthology series Into the Dark returns tomorrow with a new episode in honour of New Year’s Eve, a searing takedown of social media, toxic friendships, and wellness culture titled “New Year, New You.” It’s a suspenseful entry with an all-female cast, directed by Sophia Takal.
Because the original run of Marvel Comics’ Runaways was relatively short compared to many other series, Joshua Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the co-creators of Hulu’s live-action adaptation, have been very deliberate about not rushing through the show’s plot in favour of taking time to build out its characters and the world they exist in. That’s what makes a certain character from Runaways lore appearing in the latter half of the sophomore season so unexpected.
The teen heroes of Hulu’s Runaways spent an entire season working up the nerve to put their money where the show’s mouth is and actually run away. But the time that was put into actually fleshing out their characters was something the show’s co-creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage wanted to take in order to make the second season sing.
Damn, 2018 sure was a cruel year for pop culture fans, with tons of beloved characters being killed off in television, movies, and video games. Not to mention long-running TV shows being axed off this mortal coil forever (some of which, frankly, really needed to be put out of their misery).
A couple of months ago, Blumhouse head and horror super-producer Jason Blum got into some justifiable trouble for his comments suggesting that there were not many women directors in the horror space, which explains why, at that time, Blumhouse hadn't produced a single theatrically distributed horror film made by a lady director.
By now, you’ve likely heard of Hulu’s Into the Dark, a holiday-themed horror anthology that’s rolling out in monthly installments. But if you have yet to tune in, the Christmas episode, “Pooka!,” premieres today and is absolutely not to be missed.
Gizmodo just so happens to have an exclusive video of its director discussing the truly twisted premise.
Following the dramatic climax of Runaways’ first season, the team of superpowered kids are on the run and realising that their friendship might be the only thing that can keep them alive.
The latest trailer for the show’s second season doubles down on the importance of the kids learning how to wield their powers to protect themselves, but it also introduces a hell of a lot more magic into the mix. And it looks really cool.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale won’t be the only property expanding Margaret Atwood’s dystopian world. The author has announced that she’s finally writing a sequel to her iconic novel, called The Testaments, and says it’s partially inspired by everything going on in our society today.
Most people know George R.R. Martin for his A Song of Fire and Ice series, better known as Game of Thrones. But that’s just one of the author’s universes. Another that he curates and edits is about to get the same treatment from another major provider. And it stars superheroes.
The online streaming situation in Australia isn't as dire as it once was, with once VPN-only services such as Netflix and Prime Video readily available in local form. Hulu, however, is one of the big players still missing from the picture, though with Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox, this looks like it could change, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger.
Home alone, a young woman scrolls through vintage black-and-white films of 1920s dancers. It’s all flapper-filled fun until she lands on The Rizzle — also the name of Josh Tanner’s short film, made for Hulu’s Huluween Film Fest. The Rizzle, as you’ll see, is actually a very sinister blast from the past, cleverly disguised by some very snappy dance moves.
Video: It took a whole season for Marvel’s Runaways to do the thing — you know, actually running away. Now that they’re on the lam, our teenage heroes are getting ready for war.
Apple's new streaming service reportedly has a $US1 ($1.37) billion budget, but apparently it can't buy some nerve. The company has long censored its walled-garden offerings on platforms like the App Store, and per a report in the Wall Street Journal on Saturday, Apple is still aiming to keep its content offerings squeaky clean, with little "gratuitous sex, profanity or violence."
Castle Rock just dropped its season finale, “Romans.” Did we get an explanation for every aspect of the Hulu show’s multi-layered, Stephen King-inspired mystery? Nope. We got something even better: an ending that revealed most, but not all, and somehow felt satisfying while also being completely bleak.
