While we all wait to see how Kylo Ren’s story arc unfolds in the Star Wars saga, we have a new 1/6th collectible action figure from Hot Toys for you to check out. This is the version of the character from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with the change of the scar across his face and everything. As you can see, we also get a look at Supreme Leader Snoke’s Praetorian Guards. Some of the photos show Kylo in a kneeling position with the guards behind him. I assume he is kneeling before Snoke. This is yet another great figure with all the awesome details we’ve come to expect from Hot Toys. Here are the details:

Stephen King’s IT Will Become The Highest Grossing Horror Movie of All Time!

stephen-kings-it-will-become-the-highest-grossing-horror-movie-of-all-time-social.jpg

I’m so bloody happy to announce that the latest big screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s IT will become the highest grossing horror film of all time, from a pure horror genre standpoint. The movie that it had to beat was the 1973 film The Exorcist which made over $232.9 million since it was first released.

IT is expected to beat the record tomorrow and by Sunday they say it will have made around $270 million. If any film deserves to hold the title of the highest grossing horror film, it’s IT. It was just such a fantastically well-made film that the majority of people have just loved. I’ve already seen it four times in theaters! I have to keep dragging people to see it!

Deadline explains that the studio “is calling the record from a pure genre standpoint, with all other pics such as The Sixth Sense ($293M), Jaws ($260M), and Will Smith’s sci-fi zombie pic I Am Legend ($256.4M) considered horror hybrids.”

High fives to the cast and crew of IT, who brought us such an amazingly fun and terrifying film! I can’t wait for Chapter 2!

Michael Keaton Explains Why He Walked Away From The BATMAN Franchise

In many ways, Michael Keaton can be credited for the massive resurgence of Batman, for some fans he stands as their definitive Batman. Back in 1989, Keaton donned the hero’s cowl under Tim Burton’s direction, but he did not give the hero a third installment of the “Bat-chise.” Now, the star is speaking out on why he left Batman behind him.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Keaton explained why he didn’t return for a third Batman film, and Keaton said his decision boiled down to the movie not being any good.

“[The film] just wasn’t any good, man. I tried to be patient, but after a certain point, I was like, I can’t take this any more, this is going to be horrible.”

“There was some really horrible taste in the 90s, and I probably contributed to that, unfortunately. It was a time of nouveau riche excess – everyone was known for their jets and their stuff. And I thought, I’m in this job for the long run, I don’t want this. And the truth is, I’m not boasting, but I was correct. There are a whole load of people who ran things that are long gone.”

Since Keaton walked away a long list of big Hollywood names have played the caped crusader. Val Kilmer,  George Clooney [and his nipples] had brief stints as the hero before stars like Christian Bale and Ben Affleck swore to protect Gotham. Affleck will soon reprise the iconic role in DC’s upcoming Justice League this November.
