Blumhouse’s ‘The Invisible Man’ Will Emerge Two Weeks Earlier – Update

  • Deadline
Updated, 12:12 Pm: Unijversal said today that its Blumhouse remake of The Invisible Man will arrive on February 28, two weeks earlier that planned. It was set to face off against Warner BrosGodzilla vs. Kong and now faces United Artists’ hidden-camera prank pic Bad Trip.

The news comes about an hour after Sony announced that its Blumhouse horror pic Fantasy Island is exiting that frame and moving up to Valentine’s Day. That leaves March’s Friday the 13th without a horror opener, with Paramount’s untitled sequel to A Quiet Place set to bow on March 20.

Previously, May 20: Universal has set a March 13, 2020 release date for The Invisible Man, the Blumhouse-produced take on the Uni monster franchise that will star Elisabeth Moss. Leigh Whannell is aboard to write and direct the pic, which now will begin production in Sydney in July.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Composer Adam Taylor Crafts A Musical Journey From Dread And Despair Toward Hope

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Composer Adam Taylor Crafts A Musical Journey From Dread And Despair Toward Hope
Crafting a “creepy, otherworldly and alien” sound for the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale, composer Adam Taylor’s biggest challenge since then has been watching the story evolve, and finding ways in which his score can evolve with it.

One of the most well regarded dramas on television today, Bruce Miller’s dystopian Hulu series centers on Offred (Elisabeth Moss)—a woman once known as June—who is forced to bear children for the elite of a new regime, when a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship sweeps over America, and the Land of Liberty she had always known appears gone for good.

For Taylor—a first-time Emmy nominee, recognized for his work on Season 2—The Handmaid’s Tale is a journey from fear toward hope, an arc which he naturally reflected in the series’ score as well. Starting out on the series as a conjurer of dread-inducing, nightmarish sounds, Taylor

Broadway invades the Emmys: 4 Drama Guest Actress nominees won Tonys for Best Actress in a Play

It’s not unusual for the film, television and theater worlds to overlap, but Broadway downright dominates one Emmy category this year. Not only are four nominees for Best Drama Guest Actress veterans of the Great White Way, all four of them have won Tonys for Best Actress in a Play.

The current Emmy front-runner based on the combined predictions of Gold Derby users is Phylicia Rashad for her role as Susan Kelechi Watson‘s mom on “This is Us.” She previously made history on Broadway when she won the Tony for “A Raisin in the Sun” in 2004, which made her the first black performer ever to win Best Actress in a Play. But even though Rashad is also a TV veteran, she has never actually won an award from the television academy, not even for the TV movie version of “A Raisin in the Sun” that aired a few

The drama directing Emmy could go to a woman for just the 4th time with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Killing Eve’

The drama directing Emmy could go to a woman for just the 4th time with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Killing Eve’
Two years ago, “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Reed Morano ended a 22-year cold streak when she became just the third woman to win the Best Drama Directing Emmy. Two women have a chance of joining that group this year to be No. 4: Daina Reid for “Handmaid’s” and Lisa Brühlmann for “Killing Eve.”

Before Morano, the only female drama directing champs were Karen Arthur and Mimi Leder. Morano’s field included two other women, her fellow “Handmaid’s” director Kate Dennis and Lesli Linka Glatter for “Homeland.” Last year, “Handmaid’s” helmer Kari Skogland, who was the only woman in the lineup, was the odds-on frontrunner to win, but the award ended up going to Stephen Daldry for “The Crown.”

Reid, whose nominated episode is “Holly” — one of “Handmaid’s” three eligible orphaned episodes this cycle — and Brühlmann, nominated for “Desperate Times,” are up against three “Game of Thrones

How ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Became the Year’s Sneakiest Emmy Nominee

An edited version of this story about “The Handmaid’s Tale” first ran in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” was not supposed to be a major Emmy player this year. After all, the Hulu drama wasn’t even eligible for series awards, or in the lead or supporting acting categories; its second season mostly aired in the spring of 2018 and was eligible last year, while Season 3 didn’t begin until after this year’s cutoff.

But it did air the three final episodes of Season 2 during this year’s eligibility period — and that made these “dangling episodes,” in Emmy parlance, eligible for individual awards for those specific episodes: directing awards, writing awards, guest-acting awards for performers who weren’t series regulars, that kind of thing.

And those three episodes landed a remarkable 11 Emmy nominations. They were honored for directing, acting,

‘The Kitchen’ Filmmaker Andrea Berloff on How She Knew She Was Ready to Direct
Andrea Berloff brought the horror and trauma of the 9/11 terrorist attack to the silver screen in 2006 as the writer behind “World Trade Center,” starring Nicolas Cage and Michael Peña. In 2015, she showcased N.W.A’s rise to success in “Straight Outta Compton,” earning an original-screenplay Oscar nomination and striking a cultural chord in the hip-hop community and beyond. Most recently, she made her directorial debut with “The Kitchen,” featuring Elisabeth Moss, Tiffany Haddish and Melissa McCarthy as 1970s housewives who become mobsters after their gangster husbands get locked up.

What were you most scared of when you wrote “World Trade Center”?

‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Creator on June’s ‘Act of War’ in Season 3 Finale: ‘She’s Doing This for Pain, Not for Pleasure’

‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Creator on June’s ‘Act of War’ in Season 3 Finale: ‘She’s Doing This for Pain, Not for Pleasure’
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 3 finale, “Mayday”)

More than 50 children made it out of Gilead on the Season 3 finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” titled “Mayday,” and it’s all thanks to June (Elisabeth Moss) who orchestrated a complicated plan with the Marthas and some of the other rebellious Handmaids to smuggle the young boys and girls safely into Canada, and stayed behind to make sure it all went smoothly.

And while she might be the savior responsible for the children’s brighter future in the Great White North, she’s still stuck within the borders of the dystopian society, wounded — though protected by the Handmaids who have grown to become her family — and certainly about to face the music for what she’s done.

“Handmaid’s Tale” creator Bruce Miller told TheWrap that Gilead will “absolutely not” stand for June’s betrayal on

In "Mayday," June (Elisabeth Moss) successfully saved dozens of children from growing up in Gilead by getting them on a cargo plane to Canada. But at what cost?

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Team Talks Season 3 Finale Rebel Act and Reunions (Spoilers)
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Mayday,” the third season finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

There has long-been a school of thought that in order to move forward, one must be willing to look back.

In the case of “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” third season finale, starting the episode entitled “Mayday” with a flashback to June’s (Elisabeth Moss) earliest moments after being rounded up alongside dozens of other women to be led to their new lives under the new regime offered Hulu’s dystopian drama a chance to show how far the titular heroine had come.

“Just the look on her face, the way she’s walking, the way she’s talking, the way she knows how to navigate the world within the world and get what she needs now, it was really that difference,” creator and showrunner Bruce Miller tells Variety of the opening moments.

[This story contains spoilers for the season three finale of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale.]

The Handmaid's Tale ended its second season on a controversial cliff-hanger, with Elisabeth Moss' June Osborne deciding to stay behind in Gilead to search for her daughter Hannah (Jordana Blake), rather than escape with her infant daughter. How did that decision bear out over the course of season three?

June Osborne isn't Offred anymore — and from certain vantage points, she's not exactly June Osborne anymore, either. At least, she's not the same June who entered The Handmaid's Tale.

The Emmy-winning Hulu drama wraps its third season on Wednesday with an episode that puts Elisabeth Moss' red-hooded June through her greatest test yet: leading a mission to sneak a large amount of children safely out of Gilead and into Canada.
