In an unprecedented move, Disney will release its upcoming adaptation of Eoin Colfer’s novel Artemis Fowl directly to Disney +, skipping its theatrical release altogether.
Disney’s cascade delay of its Phase 4 Marvel universe slate is having a ripple effect on some of its other future releases. Its upcoming Indiana Jones 5 is one such casualty: it’s being delayed again, this time from 2021 to 2022.
Giant buildings loom over the distant skyline, while giant robots and machines dot the surface of a rural landscape. Those elements make up many of the paintings that Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag has produced over the years, and which are now the basis of a new series from Amazon Prime Video, Tales From the Loop.
Stålenhag has risen to prominence in recent years with his nostalgia-laced art, which he has since published in a pair of art books, Tales From the Loop and Things from the Flood. (Another, Electric State, reflects much of the same format, but isn’t set in the same world.) Featuring stark, haunting images of a sort of urban decay, on their surface they seem like an unlikely source for a dramatic television series. But Amazon’s Tales From the Loop is an intriguing, beautiful series that looks for the humanity amidst the fantastical.
TNT’s adaptation of Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 film Snowpiercer is coming a bit earlier than expected. The network has moved up the show’s release date to May 17th, and has released a new trailer for the long-awaited series.
The creator behind the cult series Life on Mars says that he’s in the early stages of developing a “Final Chapter” for DCI Sam Tyler, a modern-day police officer who found himself transported into 1973 after a car accident.
Ghosts might not worry the Ghostbusters, but the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has Sony worried about its box office returns. The studio has announced that it’s shifting a number of its upcoming films to later dates, including the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Morbius, which were slated to hit theaters this summer. The films will now debut in March 2021.
R.F. Kuang made a splash in 2018 with her debut novel, The Poppy War, an epic military fantasy about a young woman named Rin, who finds herself in the midst of a brutal war.
Loosely based on real-world Chinese history, The Poppy War earned Kuang nominations for both the Nebula and World Fantasy Awards. She followed up that book last year with The Dragon Republic, and in November, she’ll close out the trilogy with The Burning God.
After spending years in production hell, Netflix began streaming its adaptation of Locke & Key earlier this year. The show departed from the comics it’s based on in some significant ways, and ended up on a big cliffhanger.
Fortunately, we won’t be left hanging: Netflix announced today that it was officially bringing the series back for a second season.
Solaris Books has announced that it has acquired three new novellas from Children of Time and Spiderlight author Adrian Tchaikovsky. The first, titled One Day All This Will Be Yours, arrives in a limited-edition hardcover in March 2021, with the others to follow in 2022 and 2023.
We spoke with Tchaikovsky about what to expect coming up.
