Ellen DeGeneres‘ A Very Good Production has released the trailer for their upcoming project Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, an all-new feature film starring Sophia Lillis (It) as the iconic titular character, Nancy Drew. Check out the trailer now below!

The film focuses on Nancy Drew (Lillis), a smart high schooler with a penchant for keen observation and deduction, who stumbles upon the haunting of a local home. A bit of an outsider struggling to fit into her new surroundings, Nancy and her pals set out to solve the mystery, make new friends, and establish their place in the community.

Award-winning director Katt Shea (Poison Ivy) helms the film from a script by the screenwriting team of Nina Fiore and John Herrera (The Handmaid’s TaleThe Vampire Diaries). DeGeneres, Jeff Kleeman (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) and Chip Diggins (A Walk in the Woods) are producers with Wendy S. Williams (The Fate of the Furious) executive producing.

Zoe Renee (The Quad) and Mackenzie Graham (Syfy’s The Purge) are featured as Nancy Drew’s core BFFs, George and Bess, respectively. Laura Slade Wiggins (Shameless) portrays Helen, a high school mean girl who reluctantly joins forces with Nancy to help solve the mystery. Sam Trammell (True Blood) plays Nancy’s father, Carson, with Linda Lavin (Alice) as Flora, the owner of the haunted house, and Andrea Anders (JoeyThe Stepford Wives) starring as Nancy’s Aunt Hannah.

The cast also includes Jay DeVon Johnson (Vice Principals), Andrew Matthew Welch (Ma), Jon Briddell (The Resident), Josh Daugherty (We Were Soldiers), Evan Castelloe (Queen Sugar), and Jesse C. Boyd (Hap and Leonard).

The character of Nancy Drew was created by publisher Edward Stratemeyer to go along with his Hardy Boys book series. The books were written by a series of ghostwriters and published under the pen name Carolyn Keene. The character first appeared in 1930 and evolved over the years with the culture. Depending on the version of the story, Nancy Drew is either 16- or 18-years old and is an amateur detective. She is often helped by her best friends, cousins Bess Marvin and George Fayne, both of whom are women. It can be assumed that the friends of the author in the series are the people upon whom she bases Bess and George.

Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase will arrive in theaters on March 15, 2019.

Kingdom Hearts III is almost here! The hype is building up with the game’s release, and today Hikaru Utada drops her Face My Fears EP featuring songs from the game. Hikaru has performed the opening songs for Kingdom Hearts I and II, and the tradition continues with the third installment. “Face My Fears” is going to be the opening theme song with collaboration from EDM artist Skrillex and Poo Bear. There’s also “Don’t Think Twice,” which was featured in one of the Kingdom Hearts III trailers.

Skrillex is a fan of the Kingdom Hearts series, and he was supposed to originally remix “Don’t Think Twice.” However, since both he and Hikaru are friends, they decided to create a whole new song together. And thus, “Face My Fears” is born.

You can check out the Face My Fears EP on Spotify now.

A vinyl record of the EP will be released in Spring 2019.

Since then, the game has been made for portable devices, with those games later being ported to consoles. Now over a decade later, fans will finally get another Kingdom Hearts game made for the consoles with Kingdom Hearts III. This marks the 12th Kingdom Hearts game in the series.

Kingdom Hearts III will feature similar gameplay from the previous games with some new updates. Sora returns as the main character, and he’ll be joined by Donald and Goofy. Players will get to experience new Disney worlds from Tangled, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Big Hero 6, and Frozen.

The Whisperers: Behind-the-scenes of The Walking Dead season 9

AMC has released a behind-the-scenes look at The Walking Dead Season 9’s second half and the terrifying new villains, The Whisperers. Watch the cast and creators give an exclusive preview in the video below!

The second half of The Walking Dead Season 9 finds our groups of survivors, both old and new, continuing to deal with the impact of events that took place during the six years that have passed. Since the disappearance of Rick, many of these characters have become strangers to each other, and in some ways, strangers to themselves. What they do know is that they are in undeniable danger. They will soon realize the world just beyond does not operate as they thought.

The group’s rules and ways of survival no longer guarantee their safety. A whole new threat has crossed their paths, and they soon discover it’s unlike any threat they have encountered or endured before. The group will start to question what they think they see. What may appear to be normal in this post-apocalyptic world could actually be more disturbing and terrifying than when the apocalypse first broke out. All that is certain is the stakes are high and numerous.

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars

The 10 Most Iconic Movie Cars

Many people live vicariously through movies. It always helps when audience members have something to relate to, whether it be a character, situation, or time period. Pretty much anyone can relate to the feeling of being behind the wheel of a car, hearing the engine roar and cruising down a two-lane blacktop. While some folks merely use cars as tools to get around, others consider cars a passion. It’s the same for filmmakers. Many treat the vehicles in their films with the same regard as the actors. In some cases, cars become characters, many of them more well-known than the cast!

Buckle up and hang on tight as we take a look at the greatest and most recognizable cars in cinema. (Spoilers may follow!)

Back to the Future Trilogy: “The Time Machine”



Many people recognize this sleek vehicle from the adventure/comedy films about time-travel. After many different ideas, director Robert Zemeckis decided on this flashy, spaceship-like car model for the time machine. Five real Delorean DMC-12s were used in the filming of the trilogy, along with a full-sized fiberglass model for “hovering” scenes, and a modified off-road version. There was also a “process” model for easy dismantling for interior shots of the car.

Batman Begins/The Dark Knight: “The Batmobile”



Batman’s awesome tank-like transport has gone through many different versions throughout the years. Starting with the 1943 serial film, the car was a 1939 Cadillac Series 61 convertible. Adam West drove around in a customized 1955 Lincoln Futura. Tim Burton’s Batmobile was built on a Chevy Impala chassis. Then, there’s “The Tumbler,” designed and created from scratch for the Dark Knight series. This Frankenstein-esque throwback to Frank Miller’s art was capable of launching 30 feet through the air thanks to some awesome hydraulic enhancement.

The Blues Brothers: “The Bluesmobile”



Described as an old Mount Prospect police car, this 1974 440 Dodge Monaco became the new Bluesmobile after Elwood traded a 1968 Cadillac for a microphone. This car not only runs great, but it’s tough as a tank, can jump, do back-flips, and even fly. The cigarette lighter doesn’t work, though. Speaking of cars, the stunts and crashes in this movie are still some of the biggest and best of all time, with a whopping 103 cars wrecked during the filming. The production hired over 40 stunt drivers, and they kept a 24-hour auto repair shop opened during the filming, for quick fixes. Catch The Blues Brothers for free on Crackle.

Constant Motion: Top 10 Action Movies Of The Past Decade

Bullitt: “The Bullitt”



The notable and memorable car chase in this “tough cop” film utilized two 1968 Mustang G.T. 390s and two Dodge Charger 440 V8s for the bad guys. Steve McQueen did all of the close-up driving himself, and veteran stunt driver Bill Hickman drove the Chargers and also played one of the hit-men in the film. Hickman was also a stunt driver on The French Connection and The Seven-Ups, and also had cameos in both films, and all of these films have influential car chase scenes. The story surrounding the disappearance and reemergence of the car is one you have to read.

Christine: “Christine”



Directed by John Carpenter and based on a novel by Stephen King, this movie’s title character is a sentient and malevolent vintage Plymouth Fury. Two other Plymouth models, the Belvedere and the Savoy, were re-dressed to look like the Fury for many of the scenes which involved damage to the car. Out of 20 cars made for the film, only two remain today in the hands of collectors. Check out Christine on Amazon.

The Evil Dead Trilogy: “The Classic”



This is the 1973 Delta 88 Oldsmobile driven by Ash in The Evil Dead films, which belonged to writer/director Sam Raimi. It is an essential character in this story and even gets possessed in Ash vs Evil Dead. In fact, this car has appeared in every Evil Dead film, including the remake. Like many of Sam Raimi’s friends and family, this car makes cameos in his other films, like Spiderman, Drag Me to Hell, The Gift, and also cameos in Coen Brothers films like Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and others. Watch The Evil Dead on Amazon.

More Iconography: The 9 Most Iconic ’90s Movie Characters

Ghostbusters: “The Ecto-1”



This is the flashy vehicle with the distinct siren that carried around the Ghostbusters. This was a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor professional chassis ambulance/hearse combo. Considering how much Ray Stantz pumped into this machine, $4,800 is a steal. The vehicle had enough room for the team and all their equipment, and became an icon for the people of New York. In reality, the car was a one-of-a-kind handmade vehicle that broke down during filming. By Ghostbusters 2, the car was in bad shape. All the stuttering, smoking, and backfiring was all real. Watch Ghostbusters for free on Crackle.

The Mad Max Films: “The Pursuit Special”



This is the instantly recognizable car driven by Max Rockatansky in the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max. Also known as the “Last of the V8 Interceptors,” this started out as an Australian-built 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT and became an iconic car after art director Jon Dowding designed the futuristic look. The car is first offered to Max as an incentive early in the film. He initially declines but later uses it to help exact his revenge. The car would go on with Max in The Road Warrior and makes a small appearance in Fury Road. Check out Mad Max for free on Crackle.

Smokey and the Bandit: “The Firebird”



This is a fun “high-speed pursuit” movie with good times from start to finish, with a beautiful car driven by Burt Reynold’s character, Bandit. Director Hal Needham made an agreement with Pontiac for four 1977 Pontiac Trans-Am Firebirds, all of which were badly damaged during the production. By the end of filming, the final car was barely running, and the others had become parts donors to keep it going. They even had to use another car to push it into the scene. The worst damage was wrought during the bridge jump when the director drove it himself! The sales of Trans-Ams almost doubled after the success of this movie. Catch Smokey and the Bandit on Amazon.

Vanishing Point: “The Challenger”



This awesome movie about a delivery driver who takes a bet to deliver a car in record time has become a huge cult hit over the years. It was 20th Century Fox studio executive Richard Zanuck who decided to use a 1970 Dodge Challenger in the film, as Chrysler had cut a deal for rentals with the studio. The stunt coordinator loved the car because of its sturdiness and horsepower. Five cars were lent to the production and all five made it through without too much trouble. Few repairs were needed. Max Balchowsky, the person who maintained the cars throughout the production, also handled them on Bullitt.

Sex Education Season 1 Episode 4

Sex Education Season 1 Episode 4 Recap

In the previous episode of Netflix’s Sex Education, Otis took Maeve home after an abortion, and Eric bonded with Lily. In Sex Education season 1 episode 4, Jackson asked Otis for advice about Maeve, and Jean is drawn to a Swedish handyman.

Inexperienced

Otis’ patients this week were Tanya and Ruthie. They were two recently out lesbians, and though Tanya was enthusiastic, Ruthie wasn’t enjoying sex. Otis insisted that their sex problem was likely intertwined with issues in their relationship.

Sure enough, Otis saw Ruthie with Jessa, and she looked more comfortable showing Jessa affection. Otis confronted Ruthie, who admitted that she and Tanya only got together because they were close friends who came out around the same time. For Ruthie, it felt wrong to be with Tanya but right with Jessa. Despite how much it would hurt her, Ruthie had to tell Tanya.

Mum-Man

Sex Education Season 1 Episode 4

Maeve refused to hang out with Jackson outside of their hookups. He gave Otis money to give him advice. He tried refusing it, but Jackson wouldn’t take the money back. Otis inadvertently gave Jackson advice about Maeve’s interests, and Jackson made sure Maeve saw him indulging in the same interests.

After helping Tanya and Ruthie at the school pool, Maeve pushed him in, and they had a playful water fight. She touched Otis’ eyebrows, and suddenly, he insisted she leave. Eric found him still in the pool thirty minutes later because Otis had an erection that he couldn’t get rid of. Eric insisted the only course of action was to masturbate. Unfortunately, Otis still couldn’t.

Otis admitted to Eric that he was in love with Maeve. Soon after, Jackson came back for more advice. Otis snapped and told him to try a grand gesture, something Maeve complained about to him earlier. However, the bad advice backfired after a surprise musical performance. Maeve was now Jackson’s girlfriend.

Jakob’s daughter, Ola, came to pick him up. She accidentally walked in on Otis watching lesbian porn. He insisted it was for research purposes. The next day, Ola had her father install a latch on the door.

Madam

CS Interview: M. Night Shyamalan on the Evolution of Glass

CS Interview: M. Night Shyamalan on the Evolution of Glass

Universal Pictures provided ComingSoon.net the chance to speak 1:1 with Glass mastermind M. Night Shyamalan, who talked to us about how he developed the followup in the two decades since Unbreakable came out. Check out the interview below!

RELATED: ComingSoon.net’s Glass Review

Along with Bruce Willis’ David Dunn and James McAvoy’s The Horde, Samuel L.  Jackson returns as the title character Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass. The power-trio will be joined by Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) as a psychiatrist who specializes in “individuals who believe they are superheroes” and who is treating them at a mental hospital. Also starring in the film is Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast, who reprises her role from Split. The cast is rounded out by Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, respectively.

This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.

A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass is now playing in theaters everywhere!

ComingSoon.net: I had talked to Jason Blum last year, and he said this movie was definitely going to cost more than the typical Blumhouse movie, yet you still insisted that you do it on the cheap. For example, you only had $800,000 for visual effects. What were some specific limits that you gave yourself with this self-financed budget, which I heard is around $20 million?

M. Night Shyamalan: Yeah. It was hard because it’s a big cast, and we had to shoot these physical sequences. Those take time and there’s wires and everybody needs to be safe and there’s stunt coordinators. So there’s mechanics involved, as opposed to the you and me scene in the bedroom, where we just talk. So all those factors come into play and there’s no wiggle room, you know? There’s just no wiggle room. You can’t fall behind, so we didn’t fall behind. Just under that premise that you can’t fall behind, it’s so precise, it’s almost maniacal. There’s just no extra room for anything.

CS: Right. But it wasn’t a situation where you were like, “Good enough”?

Shyamalan: No. In retrospect, what I would’ve done is pare the script down before I shot. The script is my longest script. We ended up shooting everything and then we trimmed it down to the movie that you saw. Those things that are on the cutting room floor that you’ll see on the Blu-ray took time and money and I would’ve tried to be harsher in the writing of it and said, “If your child is going to get taken from you, what 10 pages do you lose?” That kind of exercise.

CS: Speaking of deleted scenes, I was really happy that you were able to find a place for the carnival scene because that was a huge loss when you did it originally.

Shyamalan: Huge.

CS: You cut it because it didn’t fit the rhythms of “Unbreakable,” and then you sort of truncated it for this movie.

Shyamalan: Yes, correct.

CS: And you had close to 30 minutes of deleted stuff from “Unbreakable.” What made you choose the scenes that you chose to bring back?

Shyamalan: They were related to the moments. I wanted a memory from Elijah that could be where his fantasy started that he’s important, that as the doctor said, “Where did it begin, your story that you’re extraordinary? Is there a moment that you needed it to happen?” Meaning because you saw how not normal you were, so you have to find the story. So that was a perfect…

CS: Inciting trauma.

Shyamalan: Yeah, rather than me shooting a new one, using the one I had. Then the same thing with the boy. She’s like, “Make sure this is not more important to you than to your dad. Are you sure you’re not the one promoting this? Are you a kid stuck in the belief that your dad’s Superman?” And then go to a scene where he remembers telling his dad that even though his dad was saying it’s not true, it’s true.

CS: Are you a fan of the movie “Phantasm”?

Shyamalan: No.

CS: Okay, well the director of that did a similar thing with the fourth “Phantasm” movie, where he literally didn’t have enough money to finish the film so he included outtakes from the original film to pad it out but also add dimension to it.

Shyamalan: Wow.

CS: So it was a similar thing to what you did with the flashbacks.

Shyamalan: I love it.

CS: And it had a similar effect that yours did, where you’re seeing the back and forth of 20 years.

Shyamalan: Wow, it’s so cool. And there was one more scene that was in the movie that I pulled out at the last minute, but it was the Bruce and the priest talking, which was super, super powerful, yeah.

CS: Bruce is gone for big chunks of the film. Was that because you only had X amount of time with Bruce, or was that part of your plan?

Shyamalan: Yeah, there’s three main characters and really more than that, when you think of The Hoard, because Patricia’s a main character, Dennis is, Hedwig is, Kevin is, The Beast is. So he comes with five main characters. So you’ve got five, then you have Elijah, then you have David. And then you have all their family members, so Casey -which I consider a family member- Casey, Joseph and the mom. And all of them need the screen time. And then, of course, you have Dr. Staple, too, a new character. So there’s a ton of characters.

CS: Sure. It’s an ensemble.

Shyamalan: Yeah, an ensemble piece and trying to get the balance of it right.

CS: You’ve said that The Hoard was in your original draft of “Unbreakable.” How did your conception of his place in the story, as well as the trilogy as a whole, change over the two decades?

Shyamalan: It was always meant to be this guy gets told he is a superhero and he comes to believe it and he tests it out. This guy abducts three girls and says The Beast is coming and he’s extraordinary. They were meant to bump into each other, and then the two of them would fight and prove Elijah to be correct and then be outed. That was the original conceit. That was what the original movie was supposed to be, and I couldn’t pull it off. So, you can see that’s what it is. So, essentially that version of “Glass” would be the beginning of “Glass” and the parking lot sequence, and put the end of “Glass” together, and add that onto “Split” and “Unbreakable” and that was the original version of the movie.

CS: It’s hilarious now that “Unbreakable” starts with a literal definition of what a comic book is. We don’t need to do that nowadays. It made me curious about how much you have delved into the mythos of comics in the intervening years since the first film?

Shyamalan: I studied a little of the history of Marvel versus DC, and how Stan Lee, interestingly enough, would say, “Our superheroes are superheroes like DC, but ours have to pay the bills.” So he was one step more human, one step more grounded. So those kind of thoughts. And then I was reading some other books about the history of it and how it reflected whatever times we were in, Cold War, this or that, and how it was always talking about our ID and our fears and how it started to become more and more sensationalized as we went and we just accepted those tropes as comic books and just connected with how it was grounded, to Elijah’s point.
