“What If We Were Sent Here for a Reason”: The Maze Runner Trailer

Back in February, Kate Voss talked about seven books that we would be coming to screen in 2014, and The Maze Runner made it onto the list. Now, for fans of the book, the wait is finally over!

The trailer features some familiar faces including Dylan O'Brien of teen thriller Teen Wolf, Kaya Scodelario, from the UK drama Skins, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster of Game of Thrones (and the voice of Ferb on Phineas and Ferb). Do you like to see books adapted? Will you be seing The Maze Runner?

We’ll All Be Seeing Hannibal’s Therapist Regularly

Gillian Anderson plays Bedelia du Maurier on Hannibal, an astonishingly cool and self-possessed character, especially given her hints about being the victim of violent crime and given that her almost-shuttered practice has devolved to including only client, the insistent Dr. Lecter himself. If you've been watching, you've discovered more of her hidden depths—oh, that Season 2 finale!—and it's just been reported she'll become a series regular.

Creator Bryan Fuller says Season 3 will begin about a year after the shocking end of Season 2 with the characters Hannibal and Bedelia, who seem to have moved somewhat beyond office visits and quarterly billing, and we can't wait to see what's happened to them and everyone else in the interim. Now, we know Bedelia is still around—wonder who else is!

Who Would You Cast in a Ghostbusters Reboot?

Ghostbusters castThe classic comedy, Ghostbusters seems to constantly have rumors of a reboot or sequel lurking. However, it seems like the rumors might be getting a little bit of fact behind them. Recently, Ghostbusters' star Bill Murray told the Toronto Star that he's not averse to a sequel—as long as he isn't in it. Who did he pitch instead? Why, an all female cast!

Among his suggestions were Melissa McCarthy, his co-star in the Toronto International Film Festival-premiering St. Vincent, and another McCarthy co-star, Kristen Wiig. Funny ladies Emma Stone and Linda Cardellini (most recently of Mad Men) rounded out the fab four.

Bridesmaids director Paul Fieg has expressed an interest in directing the reboot, and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are also among the names mentioned in the reboot.

Are you in favor of a reboot? If you could fantasy cast an all-female Ghostbusters, who would be your picks?

The Ripper Case Solved? We’ve Waited This Long...

After this weekend's “revelation” of Jack the Ripper's identity (was he really a local Polish hairdresser?) in the Daily Mail, we waited. It took mere hours for the first sets of questions to arise, some most pointedly about the DNA-tested shawl, such as whether or not it really was intact after so much handling and owned by the victim Catherine Eddowes to begin. (Be warned, sensitive readers, all discussions must include frank reference to the DNA-bearing material on the shawl—it's not blood, IYKWIMAITYD.) Also, given that Dr. Louhelainen's novel method called “vacuuming,” which he developed to acquire enough DNA to test, hasn't been vetted in scientific peer review yet, there are questions about that, too. Here are a few cautious, preliminary thoughts from Smithsonian and many more with verve from our own pal Lyndsay Faye, if you're interested. We at CrimeHQ are fascinated, without doubt, but as we've got more than enough tree rings to remember the last time the Ripper case was “solved,” we'll spectate with our bags of popcorn until the forensics settle.

Goodbye, Shiny Shoes and Fancy Suits: Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Trailer

This Sunday, Boardwalk Empire will return for its fifth and final season. Viewers will see a huge jump in time, we're now not looking at the Prohibition Era of the 1920s, but jumping straight into the Depression in 1931. As Michael K. Williams, who plays Albert “Chalky” White, said in an interview “The days of the shiny shoes and fancy suits are long gone.”

Are you a fan of the show? Are you sad to see it go? What fall shows are you excited about?

Rosewater: Jon Stewart’s Directorial Debut

Last summer, Jon Stewart took a three month hiatus from his nightly The Daily Show gig to travel to the Middle East. The result of his hiatus is Rosewater, a film that marks his first time as director and is adapted from Maziar Bahari's memior Then They Came for Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival. Bahari was famously captured, interrogated, and tortured in an Iranian prison on the charges of being an American spy. Oddly enough, it was Bahari's satirical bit on The Daily Show that led to his arrest.
You can watch the trailer for Rosewater below. It hits theaters November 7th.

The Devil You Know: Horns Trailer

If everyone thinks you're a monster...do you become one? After the death of his girlfriend (of which he is found guilty in the eyes of the public), Ignatius “Ig” Perrish wakes up one morning to find himself with horns and diabolic powers. Mostly being able to instantly know someone's darkest secret, and making people do awful things. Daniel Radcliffe takes on the role, and while Horns is supernatural, it's a long way off from his Harry Potter roots.

What do you think of the trailer?

Is Legally Dead Still Slightly Alive? Ask Miracle Max and the Feds.

A man declared dead by Ohio couldn't get the state to overturn it, despite his appearance in court to dispute the matter. However, the feds say that though he remains legally dead, that's slightly alive enough for federal purposes, especially if those include getting money back from his kin.

Please visit Lowering the Bar to read the crazy details of this weird case, and big ups for the Princess Bride reference, too. Indubitably!

Not Dead Yet: Melbourne Edition

A Melbourne hospital recently mass-mailed 200 death certificates for live, recently discharged patients to their family doctors. According to the Times of India, it was an “inadvertent change to the templates the hospital sends to doctors once a patient has been discharged...” Yawn. Or, that could be a cover story for the fact that Melbourne's actually full of zombies, the walking dead, mwa ha ha! We know which scenario we prefer.
