There’s a new creature-feature on the way, titled The Little People, and it stars Ant-Man and the Wasp actress Hannah John-Kamen.

From Grabbers director Jon Wright, this indie horror movie finds a couple (John-Kamen and The Limehouse Golem’s Douglas Booth) eloping to rural Ireland, only to find evil and murderous goblins living within the ancient woodland overlooking their back garden.

Described as “Gremlins meets Straw Dogs”, take a look at the first official photo below.

From Digital Spy

There’s no such thing as bad publicity goes the old saying and Riverdale star KJ Apa’s new movie Songbird might just be about to push that to its limit.

We knew back in May that Michael Bay was producing a new pandemic thriller, which had already set alarm bells slightly ringing. However, nobody was prepared for what the movie would end up being until a first look was released this week.

Songbird takes place in 2024 in a world where COVID-19 has mutated into an even deadlier strain of the virus with a mortality rate of more than 50 percent. 110 million people have died worldwide and the world is into the fourth year of lockdown.

But this isn’t a Threads-style look at the worst possible scenario of the ongoing global pandemic.

Instead, it’s just the setting for a viral Romeo and Juliet

In A Horror Movie About Hair, The Biggest Villain Goes Unseen

Since the early origins of the genre in the late 1800s, horror films have mostly been told through a very white lens. If people of color, particularly Black people, ever appeared in these stories, the running joke has been that we’re always the first to be picked off by the ghosts or axe murderers. However, the genre is slowly but surely evolving as Black filmmakers pull up a seat to the table to tell new stories. And these new ideas of horror often lean into something even more bone-chilling than the undead or an exorcism: a culture of anti-Blackness.

New Hulu film Bad Hair is no exception. The project, the latest brainchild of filmmaker Justin Simien (the mind behind both the 2014 movie and subsequent TV adaptation of Dear White People), attempts to tackle the consequences of anti-Blackness through a cultural examination of Black hair

Every new Star Wars movie and TV show confirmed so far

The Mandalorian has returned – and, although we all love the gunslinger and his Child, we are also desperate to see that galaxy far, far away on the big screen again. So, when can we expect new Star Wars movies to finally arrive? And what story will the next set of movies tell? Unfortunately, those are difficult questions to answer.

Following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, LucasFilm and Disney are taking a break from adventures in cinemas, with the focus instead being on Disney Plus. In fact, we won’t see another new Star Wars movie until 2021 – and we have no idea what will actually be in that movie. However, that’s no reason not to be excited. Not only is the great Taika Waititi at the helm of the next Star Wars movie, but, in the meantime, we have multiple shows to

Comcast Sees Q3 Profit Fall on Shortfalls at Theme Parks, Movie Studio

Severe declines in revenue at NBCUniversal’s theme parks and movie studios spurred a 37% decline in profit in the third quarter for cable-and-entertainment giant Comcast.

The Philadelphia owner of NBCUniversal, the Sky satellite business and the large Comcast cable distributorship said third-quarter net profit fell 37% to $2.02 billion, compared with $3.22 billion a year earlier. Revenue in the period fell 4.8% to $25.5 billion, as NBCUniversal, dependent on advertising and consumers gathering at movie theaters and the company’s theme parks, grappled with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Still, the results were better than what Wall Street had anticipated, with customer demand for the company’s so-called over-the-top products proving a bright spot during the period. The company said it had seen 22 million sign-ups for NBCU’s Peacock streaming-video service. And Comcast gained 633,000 broadband subscribers in the quarter.

Blame Game Begins After Trump’s Nebraska Rally Sh*tshow

President Donald Trump went to Omaha, Nebraska Tuesday night hoping to boost his chances of winning the area’s competitive electoral college vote.But he left a logistical mess in his wake at Eppley Airfield as scores of people were left trying to get back to their vehicles via buses from the large-scale event in the midst of a raging pandemic.Trump’s rallies during the pandemic have already worried health experts because, even when they’re outdoors, the large events feature little in the way of social distancing and lax mask-wearing from the audience. But the logistical issues in Omaha likely only compound the existing anxieties over holding such big events and gathering so many people together at a time when health experts are still sounding the alarm over the deadly coronavirus.No Lockdown, No Problem, Says Nebraska GOP Guv as Cases RiseThe Omaha

‘It’s Going Away’: A Small Movie Theater Struggles to Survive

On a rainy day last week, 72 moviegoers visited the Park Plaza Cinema in Hilton Head Island, S.C., to see Liam Neeson in “Honest Thief.” It was the largest single-day attendance the independently owned five-screen theater had seen since reopening in August after a five-month shutdown. The feeling of celebration was short-lived. The next day, only 22 people showed.

Park Plaza, like movie theaters big and small around the country, has been decimated by the pandemic. After its long closure, it has established social-distancing protocols and installed new air filtration systems. It has tried initiatives like curbside popcorn sales. But the efforts have not been enough to offset the larger trends upending moviegoing, namely that many people still don’t seem inclined to return to theaters in large numbers and that Hollywood, with no audience to speak of, has pushed off most major releases until next year.

“We are an industry
