‘Dickinson’ Corrects the Narrative on Emily Dickinson’s Queerness, Humor, and Spirit

‘Dickinson’ Corrects the Narrative on Emily Dickinson’s Queerness, Humor, and Spirit
It’s been a very good year for Emily Dickinson fans — and even better for the gay ones. Earlier this year saw the release of “Wild Nights With Emily,” Madeleine Olnek’s whip-smart romp starring none other than comedy icon Molly Shannon as the long misunderstood poet. Aside from being wildly entertaining, the film helped to re-vamp Dickinson’s image as a reclusive spinster — a myth that helped sell her work to a sexist public and has been widely disputed by Dickinson scholars. Most vitally for Lgbtq fans of one of our greatest American poets, “Wild Nights With Emily” spotlighted her long term romantic relationship with her childhood best friend and sister-in-law, Susan.

“Dickinson,” one of the first original series from Apple TV+, accomplishes many of the same feats, albeit with a bigger budget and more screen time. Created by Alena Smith, “Dickinson” stars Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage version

That Halloween Kills Trailer Had A Halloween II Easter Egg

Anticipation is building for Halloween Kills, the first of two sequels to David Gordon Green’s 2018 version of Halloween. Some behind-the-scenes footage arrived last week that, while brief, showed Michael Myers surviving the end of the previous film, as well as glimpses of other characters. Not only that, but the recent teaser also featured an Easter egg referencing the original Halloween II. Specifically, we’re talking about Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode being wheeled to a hospital.

Although it’s no longer considered canon, with the 2018 Halloween the de facto sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 original, Halloween II still has a lot of fans. The film is gorier and inventive in different ways than Carpenter’s work, focusing most of its runtime on an injured Curtis fighting Myers in Haddonfield Memorial Hospital almost directly after the events of the first movie. The shot in the aforementioned trailer of Curtis’ older

Halloween Kills Has Now Wrapped Production

It’s been a busy week for fans of the Halloween franchise, with a teaser, available above, dropped by Jamie Lee Curtis for the upcoming Halloween Kills. As well as potentially revealing how Michael Myers escaped the fire at the Strode house, the trailer also gave us our first look at Anthony Michael Hall’s portrayal of Tommy Doyle. We should hopefully expect more footage soon, too, as shooting has now officially wrapped after 36 days, setting up a post-production period leading up to Halloween Kills‘ release next October.

We’ve seen a lot of news from the Halloween camp since Blumhouse announced the two sequels to David Gordon Green’s 2018 effort back in June. Although the original plan seemed to be to shoot Kills and Halloween Ends back-to-back, that approach now appears to have been scrapped, with the latter film likely going into production sometime in 2021. The fast turnaround on Halloween Kills suggests that Green,

Halloween Kills Wraps Production, Halloween Ends Will Shoot Next But Not for a While

  • MovieWeb
Production on Halloween Kills has officially wrapped. The movie was announced in June and Blumhouse wasted no time getting everything off of the ground. Now, after 36 days of production, it's time to go into the post-production phase and possible reshoots at some point down the line. While it was believed that the upcoming sequel was going to shoot back-to-back with Halloween Ends, that is not the case. Danny McBride revealed that the original plan was to do two movies back-to-back, but that was before Halloween hit theaters last year.

Jamie Lee Curtis shared the first footage from Halloween Kills earlier this week and it gave horror fans a lot to look forward to. Anthony Michael Hall was spotted as the adult version of Tommy Doyle and Curtis was shown as the iconic Laurie Strode. Michael Myers was briefly shown and the rest of the footage was a mostly behind-the-scenes look at the production.

‘Dickinson': How Apple’s Experimental Comedy Makes a Millennial Icon Out of a 19th-Century Poet

‘Dickinson': How Apple’s Experimental Comedy Makes a Millennial Icon Out of a 19th-Century Poet
Everyone knows Emily Dickinson; she’s one of the greatest poets in American history. Apple’s new comedy “Dickinson” wants to explode everything you thought you knew.

Born in 1830 in Amherst, Michigan, Emily Dickinson as a person is known primarily in broad strokes: Her literary genius, her prolific output, her life as a recluse, her extremely close relationship with her sister-in-law, which may or may not have been more than platonic.

But by and large, Dickinson exists far back enough in the fog of history that many aspects of her life remain open to imagination. Premiering on Apple TV+ on Friday, “Dickinson” aims to shade in those details and bring Dickinson alive for a modern-day audience — with a twist.

Halloween Kills First Look at Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle
Anthony Michael Hall can be seen as Tommy Doyle in the first Halloween Kills footage. Yesterday was Halloween and Jamie Lee Curtis celebrated by sharing a sneak peek at the highly anticipated sequel to last year's Halloween. Fans of the franchise were taken by surprise since nobody expected to be getting some footage so soon, but it seems things are already further along than initially thought. Curtis is back as the iconic Laurie Strode and Judy Greer is back as Strode's daughter Karen, as seen in the new footage.

The Halloween Kills sneak peak also offers up our first look at Anthony Michael Hall as the adult version of Tommy Doyle. The character was the young boy who Laurie Strode was babysitting in the 1978 original and he has shown up a few more times in the franchise, though the rest of those movies have been erased by the new trilogy.
