A third season of Bite Size Halloween is coming to Hulu in celebration of Huluween. 20th Digital Studio’s got a round of twenty new shorts from emerging filmmakers blending genres like horror, comedy, sci-fi, thriller, and more, shot in seven different countries, and each tackling topical issues such as racism, gender, parenthood, sexuality, and identity.
A filmmaker for more than fifteen years, it wasn’t until the 2019 rescue actioner, Furie, that the name, Le-Van Kiet, began registering for a lot of fans beyond the Vietnamese market. This ought to be stated with much credit to North American distributor Well Go USA for doing a more than ample job in proliferating its director, as well as its star, Veronica Ngo, as we now look at one of their latest endeavors expanding further into the West with The Princess, a script by Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton that proffers a fresh, edgy, subversive and satisfyingly violent new take on childhood fairytales.
Whether you’re a fan of Stephen Norrington’s loose iteration of The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) or any of the properties on which it is based, it’s worth reiterating that no title is sacred in today’s era.

The future is bright for the Alien saga with television prospects currently looking toward a different angle on things.

So if you’re a fan of this website, you know I’ve been here for a few years now. Mostly I get to pick my own topics and request what I want to cover, but sometimes the editor in chief will send assignments and I don’t like to say no. So when he sent me a link to a trailer for some movie called Fresh, I had to open it and watch. Let’s watch it and react together, okay?
Marvel Entertainment’s posterity continues to span across platforms and labels with Hulu since adding animated series adventure, Hit-Monkey. The trailer is up and running now and now that I think about it, I almost wish this was a live-action feature film instead. Alas, I digress – I’ll take this too. It streams on Hulu from November 17 so subs need apply!
BOSS LEVEL Review: An Upbeat, Fresh And Fun Take On Familiar Sci-Fi Tropes With Suitably Violent Results
Director Joe Carnahan has been one of the most fascinating filmmakers I’ve followed in the last two decades, having seen all of his movies sans his 1998 directing debut, Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane.

Going into next year, keep the noted scribe in mind as we look into what lies ahead with word from Deadline of a revival of the popular game, Hitman from IO Interactive.
