Why American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga Was Torn Over Violet’s Return In Apocalypse

Spoilers below for the latest episode of American Horror Story, so be sure to watch the crossover madness before reading on.

American Horror Story has gotten exponentially weirder since the first season, called Murder House, and the cast of that first season was called upon to reprise their roles for Apocalypse. In the latest episode, Violet came to the realization that Tate had been used as a vessel for evil inside of the house and therefore wasn’t really guilty of the awful things he’d done, and the two former lovebirds got an unlikely happily-ever-after. Actress Taissa Farmiga was torn over the events of the episode, saying this:

As fans will remember, Murder House ended with Violet and the rest of her family dead and existing as ghosts in the house. They seemed surprisingly happy for a dead family, but Violet was still troubled by the fact that Tate was a mass shooter, murderer, and rapist. His terrible acts understandably threw a wrench in their relationship, and they seemed likely to spend eternity at odds unless she somehow forgave him.

Well, Apocalypse found a way to give Violet and Tate a happily-ever-after together. Madison blew a dust of clarity — which is apparently a thing in the American Horror Story universe — onto Violet, leading Violet to the conclusion that he wasn’t responsible for his many crimes and was in fact no longer malicious after Michael Langdon (whose actor maintains isn’t evil) fled the house.

For this story, Taissa Farmiga had to step back into the shoes of a character who was technically supposed to still look 15-years-old and get back into the headspace of a character she’d occupied seven years previously. Her comments to TV Guide indicate that she was able to slip back into her character once she started filming. While she was glad that Violent got a happy ending and resolved her issues with Tate, she preferred the more ambiguous and open-ended conclusion to Murder House.

Fans may have mixed reactions to the twist as well. Although Tate is a popular character and his twisted relationship with Violet from Season 1 was also a hit with many viewers, the reveal that it was the evil house that made him do his terrible acts may strike other viewers as an all-too-easy way to absolve him and give him a happy ending. Of course, nothing is ever entirely straightforward on American Horror Story, and Apocalypse‘s wild crossovers with actors playing multiple rules is even less straightforward than usual.

For more AHS weirdness, tune in to FX on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET for new episodes. There are plenty of shows in the fall TV lineup this year, so you have options even if you’re not into all the creepiness that American Horror Story has to offer on a weekly basis.

How Much Halloween Made On Opening Night

The wait for what may be this year’s most anticipated horror movie is finally over. It’s been 40 years since the original and nearly a decade since the last film, but Halloween is back. David Gordon Green’s reboot-quel opened in theaters last night and absence has clearly made the heart grow fonder, as Halloween made $7.7 million in preview screenings.

Thursday night previews began at 7 p.m. at 3,200 locations, netting the Miramax/Blumhouse and Universal Pictures film a cool $7.7 million to get a head start on what should be a massive weekend for the horror flick. This amount falls short of the estimates that had it pegged at $10 million, but is still a great number that bests The Nun‘s $5.4 million preview opening.

This performance also lands Halloween as arguably the third-best horror preview showing ever, after IT‘s $13.5 million and Paranormal Activity 3‘s $8 million. Tracking before the opening had Halloween headed for a record $70 million opening weekend, which would be the second best for a horror film of all-time, and that is still possible given the Thursday night numbers.

As noted by Deadline in its box office report, horror movies are typically front-loaded with audiences falling off as the weekend progresses, so it’s somewhat difficult to judge exactly what Thursday night’s performance means for the overall weekend. Halloween could perform more like a blockbuster and bring in audiences throughout the entire weekend, thus delivering a bigger return.

If Halloween‘s box office performance from day-to-day over opening weekend is in line with movies like IT or The Nun, it could be looking at around a $75 million debut. It’ll be an easy win for Michael Myers this weekend, it’s just a question of how many wallets he will be slashing open.

We know that Halloween is the top horror pre-seller this year, and Deadline also reported that the advance ticket sales are huge. This is even after the preview screenings, with pre-sales at some multiplexes surpassing those of IT, which should raise some eyebrows as that film is currently the horror GOAT at the box office.

Halloween is bolstered by the brand name, positive reviews, the Halloween season, the horror boom and nostalgia for the franchise. Though one thing working against Halloween box office-wise is that unlike IT or The Nun, Halloween is not playing on IMAX screens, which are currently displaying First Man. So Halloween is not benefitting from those premium ticket prices.

Halloween is now playing. Make sure you remember the original before seeing it and check out what we thought. After you’ve experienced the new film, come back and let us know what you thought and read our breakdown of the ending. For all the biggest movies still to come this year, head on over to the 2018 release schedule.

Ellen Describes Death Threats She Got After Coming Out

On her daytime talk show, Ellen, Ellen DeGeneres is rarely afraid to be honest and open with her loyal viewers. Her self-deprecating sense of humor, matched with her wit and laidback honesty, has won the comedian and television personality a wealth of viewers over the years, and she continued to be honest with her life and struggles during a recent profile piece. As Ellen admitted in the conversation, it wasn’t easy for her when she decided to come out as a gay woman publicly, and the public response wasn’t friendly, to say the least. Specifically, DeGeneres claims she got death threats.

During a recent in-depth conversation with Adweek, Ellen DeGeneres discussed her life, career and long-standing impact on pop culture. As a comedian, writer, television personality, animal rights advocate and LGBT activist, Ellen has often spoken out about a number of challenges topics in the past, both on the show and off the air. Ellen DeGeneres used this piece to reflect on one of the biggest moments of her career: when she said three little words on the cover of Time that had a monumental impact: “Yep, I’m gay.” It resulted in DeGeneres later being the first character in prime time TV to be openly gay, and it wasn’t without its difficulties for DeGeneres. As the popular entertainer admits, she received death threats and more:

I knew there would be people that didn’t like it, but I didn’t realize my show would be canceled. I just thought, ‘It’s going to be interesting…’ When I came out, I had death threats and there was a bomb threat, but they misjudged the time of the taping. We had already finished, and thank God.

As Ellen DeGeneres admitted, she knew it wasn’t going to be warmly received by some people, but she did not expect the intensity of the reaction. Specifically, she didn’t think her sitcom would be canceled due to the response surrounding the show. And not only that, but people were threatening the lives of DeGeneres and her co-workers by claiming they were going to put a bomb in the studio. As Ellen admits in this frank conversation, however, the comedy series was finishing taping by then, and she’s grateful that she didn’t have to stress about going to the studio with these threats.

Continuing to reflect on how she made a huge impact on pop culture by coming out publicly when she did, Ellen DeGeneres admits she often hears people saying she “started a conversation.” But DeGeneres finds herself believing that the response would be more immediate in its public healing, and she found herself “heartbroken” when other people in the LGBT community lost their lives and/or continued to be threatened and endangered. In Degeneres’ words:

I hear that a lot — that it started a conversation. It’s definitely something I know helped a lot of people, and I was hoping it would help more people. Right after I came out, Matthew Shepard was killed, and it just devastated me. I just thought, ‘This is going to make a difference.’ The ignorance of me to think that I would make that much of a difference… It just broke my heart.

Thankfully, Ellen DeGeneres is in a better place than she was during that scary moment in her career, but it is good to look back and realize how far we’ve come when it comes to LGBT representation and how people can feel more comfortable coming out about their sexual identity in today’s culture. Even though it was only a few years earlier, it has been a long time, in many respects, since the time that Ellen DeGeneres got death threats.

Why The Flash’s Cisco Ramon Should Never Get Killed Off

The Flash‘s Cisco Ramon has cheated death a couple times and has survived foes ranging from Reverse Flash to Gypsy’s father Breacher. Unfortunately, his time may be up as Season 5 has him on the chopping block again in an episode titled “The Death of the Vibe.” We don’t know if Cisco will escape Cicada‘s grasp, but we know The Flash should never kill off the character. Check out our list of reasons why the snarky sidekick would be missed.

Cisco Is The Only Person Keeping S.T.A.R. Labs Running

After Harrison Wells was exposed as Eobard Thawne in Season 1, the responsibility of keeping S.T.A.R. Labs up and running fell on Cisco and Caitlin. They’ve had some help over the years keeping it in working order, and they’ve done a pretty solid job minus their refusal to install an actual security system. Seriously, how hard is it to set up some emergency power dampeners or turrets?

While the lab was left to both, it’s safe to say Cisco has been doing a lion’s share of the upkeep in recent years. Caitlin is far too wrapped up in Killer Frost drama to give the lab her full attention, which leaves Cisco to do general maintenance and inventing. If he were to die, Team Flash would have a hell of a time finding a competent replacement to be the building’s new key holder. Besides, Caitlin is a doctor and has different areas of expertise.

He’s The Perfect Companion To Any Wells

Whether Harrison Wells is evil, a misunderstood douche, idiot, or wizard, Cisco always seems to mesh well with him. Even when he seemed to dislike H.R. almost right up until his heroic sacrifice, Cisco was the perfect straight man to play off the character’s offbeat and eccentric nature. With another Wells always just around the corner, losing Cisco would be a huge disadvantage for Team Flash.

A part of this is due to the fact that Cisco and Wells are often so in-sync. Even when the two aren’t on the same level intelligence-wise, their thoughts often tend to mash together for the perfect solution to any problem they’re forced to tackle. He’s basically the “Wells whisperer” of The Flash, and trying to make that dynamic happen with any other character could feel forced.

Interdimensional Travel Would Become More Difficult

If The Flash killed off Cisco Ramon, Earth One would lose a major means of transportation between Earths. Vibe is more than a glorified interdimensional bus system of course, as his abilities keep the show from having to establish how the heroes of different worlds were able to link up time and time again. Without him, we’re not sure how Barry and Oliver would get to the action on other Earths.

Granted, we’re sure the Arrow-verse would find a way, but that would take time. Time is typically of the essence in the usual Arrow-verse crossover and Cisco’s established powers ensure less time is spent explaining how the worlds collide and more time is spent on things people are excited to see. Is explaining a new method of world travel really worth the time that could be spent in Gotham City or with new heroes? We don’t think so.

Villain Names Would Probably Suck

Cisco Ramon always has the perfect name for The Flash‘s villains, and we’re not so sure someone could pick up the slack in his absence. Sure, other characters have had solid assists in helping a name be constructed, but by and large, he deserves the credit for 90% of the show’s rogues. Even the villains might complain with him gone, as they often seem more than willing to adopt the nicknames he’s given them.

Okay, so we know Cisco’s expert naming ability on The Flash is mainly because most villains he’s named was established in the comics first. That said, the whole “coming up with the villain name” part of the show has become a staple at this point. Losing Cisco would make those scenes a lot less enjoyable, and possibly a bit corny if instead Barry just happened to know every villain’s perfect nickname on the spot.

No More Cool Gadgets

Cisco’s inventions are another core part of The Flash, and are constantly relevant throughout the series. Without them, Leonard Snart would’ve never gotten his Cold Gun, and Barry wouldn’t have gotten an airbag system in his suit. Cisco also invented the power-dampening cuffs, which are used so often at this point they’re almost taken for granted.

Losing Cisco would remove the ability to introduce fresh gadgets to the show that service the plot, or just provide a laugh or two throughout the season. Much like the villain naming, the gadgets have become a key element to The Flash formula that would be sorely missed without the character around. The Flash could still press on without it, but it would kill a bit of the fun and whimsy that sets it apart from other Arrow-verse offerings. Nora can’t just bring everything from the future!

No More Sweet Pop Culture References

Cisco Ramon has been The Flash‘s connection to the outside world, and the character’s various pop culture references always get fans talking whenever he makes them. Whether it’s The Big Bang Theory or Harry Potter, one can never predict what trendy thing he might reference next. Seriously, who would’ve ever thought an Arrow-verse show would reference Thor’s hammer in this competitive age of superhero programs?

Of all the things that may not work organically with another character, this may be the biggest. Cisco’s inherent geekiness and love of pop culture are what makes these references more natural than if someone like Iris, Caitlin, or even Barry said them. Taking him out of the equation would make these nods to other popular things a bit more forced, especially since few characters on The Flash may represent the interests of the audience as well as Cisco Ramon.

The Flash airs on The CW Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Keep tabs on all shows coming to television both new and returning this fall season by heading over to our handy fall premiere guide.

Fuller House’s Candace Cameron Bure Is Shutting Down Those Cancellation Rumors

While another season of Fuller House is on the horizon, a storm cloud appeared overhead earlier this week. That is when a report surfaced that Netflix was planning to cancel the revival. Well, one of the series’ stars is shutting down the rumors. Candace Cameron Bure said:

There you have it! An enthusiastic reaction from Candace Cameron Bure, who also told E! another critical tidbit. The cast has never been informed of a renewal before a new season of Fuller House has premiered. So, Netflix not renewing the series ahead of its fourth season’s premiere is not foretelling of its future.

That is not entirely surprising. The streaming giant usually waits a while before it gives the green light for more of any of its originals. Even the popular Ozark had to wait a while after its second season bowed to receive a renewal.

At the time of the report, Netflix issued a statement saying they had not reached a decision about the show’s future. While it did not pour cold water on the rumors, it did confirm they had not decided either way. Candace Cameron Bure’s upbeat outlook regarding Fuller House‘s future will definitely give many cause for relief.

If Season 4 were Fuller House‘s last, there is no indication the show would have creatively been prepared for it, as in plotted a proper wrap-up to the revival. For all we know, Season 4 ends on a cliffhanger of some sort. Or at least a dangling plot thread.

That would have given Full House fans a bad flashback to the highly unfortunate way the original ended. Spoiler: It was depressing. Hence, why the revival was so important. The opportunity to bring the characters back to life to rectify the way things ended.

Not to mention how short a run the revival would have received. If a cancellation were to take place, Fuller House would have lasted four seasons. While that is a respectable run, it only would have spanned roughly two years. Fuller House premiered on Netflix back in February 2016.

Had the show been cancelled, it would have been an abrupt end to a project many had been desiring for 20 years. That is a long time to wait for something that only lasted two years. Of course, it is way better than nothing and the show did accomplish what it set out to do. So, this fan will always be grateful.

Thanks to Candace Cameron Bure, fans can now enjoy the upcoming season without worrying it will be its last. There will be a lot of exciting guest stars and a new character making their debut in Season 4. So, there is no shortage of reasons to anticipate the upcoming season.

Fuller House‘s fourth season is expected to premiere sometime this year, along with 2018’s other premieres on Netflix this fall.

An Outlander Spinoff Series? There’s Been Interest

The long wait for the fourth season of Outlander on Starz is almost over, and fans will finally get to journey back to the 18th century for more Claire and Jamie action. Claire and Jamie are obviously the main characters, and they’re not going anywhere, but there are plenty of other characters with enough depth that they could definitely anchor a series of their own. Could an Outlander spinoff happen? Here’s what novel saga author Diana Gabaldon has to say about the possibility:

Diana Gabaldon not only did not rule out a spinoff via her Twitter post; she also revealed that there has been interest expressed in the possibility. Given how much of a hit Outlander has been for Starz, it’s not altogether surprising that the idea of a spinoff of the series would have been floated. Jamie and Claire wander in and out of some intriguing places and away from compelling people. Why not a show that focuses on some of them, especially one produced to air during Outlander hiatus?

The response from Diana Gabaldon is directed at somebody who inquired about a spinoff revolving around Lord John Grey, and book readers know that a John Grey spinoff is one that could easily work. Unlike the other side characters of Outlander lore, John Grey got his own series of novels and novellas that explore his own story independent of the Frasers. Fans have every reason to want to watch a show starring him.

Sure, he was introduced as a British officer in charge of a prison filled with suffering Scots — including Jamie and Murtagh — but he’s not just another Brit who wants to squash every Scot. He fell in love with Jamie and didn’t lash out after Jamie rebuffed him, leading to a genuine and unique friendship between them. John Grey even endeared himself to Claire, who wasn’t initially overjoyed to have somebody else in the mix who’s in love with Jamie. Give John Grey a spinoff!

Of course, John Grey is due to appear in the Outlander narrative more in the future if the show continues to follow the plots of the books; if he does get a spinoff, it would be either somewhat beholden to the parent series or force changes to the parent series’ arc. That wouldn’t necessarily be the worst thing in the world. While it’s always enjoyable for readers to see major book scenes translated almost exactly from page to screen, some divergences are great. That’s how Murtagh is still alive!

There are other possibilities for a spinoff, if not one revolving around John Grey. Jenny and Co. at Lallybroch could lead a spinoff, or elsewhere in Scotland as the Scots try to recover from Culloden. A Geillis Duncan series could be interesting, or even a prequel to the generation before Jamie. There are plenty of options.

We’ll have to wait and see if Outlander does get a spinoff. The very good news is that Outlander will be back for its fourth season in only a couple of weeks, so we can finally learn what happens next for Jamie and Claire in the aftermath of their shipwreck in the American colonies. The trailer hints that we’re in for some exciting twists, and the opening credits already give away a decent amount about what to expect.

Is Quicksilver Returning For Avengers 4? Here’s What Aaron Taylor-Johnson Says

Although there have been plenty of casualties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the last decade, on the hero side of things, the body count was relatively light until the events of Avengers: Infinity War. In fact, since Agent Phil Coulson was revived for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., arguably the biggest death of this bunch that had stuck was Pietro Maximoff’s, a.k.a. Quicksilver, who perished in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Earlier this year, it was rumored that Avengers 4 might bring the speedster back into play, but according to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, that’s not in the cards. When asked if he’d show up in the Phase 3 capper, the actor responded:

Like most actors playing important characters in the MCU, Aaron Taylor-Johnson signed a multi-picture deal when he joined Avengers: Age of Ultron, but just becomes someones signs such a contract doesn’t mean it will be used in full. The door is technically open for Quicksilver to somehow return to the MCU, and when Johnson was reportedly spotted on the Avengers 4 set back in May, that re-triggered conversation about Wanda Maximoff’s brother being involved in the story. But as Johnson told Metro, currently there are no plans for him to participate in any future MCU projects, including Avengers 4.

Quicksilver was killed during the Battle of Sokovia in Avengers: Age of Ultron when he rushed in front of a hail of bullets that were about to hit Hawkeye and a child. Given how death is rarely permanent within the pages of Marvel and DC comic books, there’s been on-and-off chatter in the years since then about how Quicksilver could possibly be resurrected. Or, given the speculation about time travel in Avengers 4, maybe we’d see an Age of Ultron-era Pietro again. Alas, it sounds like we can shelve those theories, though maybe things will change later down the line.

While Quicksilver is staying six feet under (for now), his sister Wanda, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, survived Avengers: Age of Ultron and went on to play important roles in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Unfortunately for her, she was among the half of people in the universe wiped off the map by Thanos at the end of Infinity War. It’s expected that she and the other disappeared heroes will be brought back in Avengers 4, but how that will be accomplished is still a mystery.

All our questions will be answered when Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3, 2019, so keep checking back with CinemaBlend for more coverage. Don’t forget to also look through our Marvel movies guide to learn what else this superhero franchise has in development. And if you’re really itching for a Quicksilver fix, you can watch Evan Peters reprise his version of the speedster in Dark Phoenix on June 7, 2019.

Losing The Captain America Role Was The Hardest Moment In Wilson Bethel’s Career

Depending on how Avengers 4 goes, Chris Evans may potentially be saying goodbye to his iconic role as Captain America after almost 10 years as the first Avenger. In the strenuous casting process that ended in Evans’ favor years ago, there was another actor neck and neck with him before he nabbed the role: Wilson Bethel. The actor makes his debut today on Marvel Television’s Daredevil season 3 as the classic villain Bullseye, but there was a time when he felt he lost out on the role of a lifetime. Bethel auditioned, screen tested, screen tested again and even wore Cap’s suit, leading him to believe he might be the leader of the MCU’s Avengers, but you know what happened instead. In Bethel’s words:

At the time when Wilson Bethel auditioned for Captain America, he was a relative newcomer to the industry with just a few acting credits, so his ability to get so close to nabbing the role is quite impressive. But Chris Evans had already lead quite a few successful films, so he was likely a better bet for the studio still in the early days of forming their expansive MCU. In Bethel’s interview with ComicBook.com, he explained the casting process in depth, detailing how he screen tested with many other guys for the role, who they all ended up being released at the end of it except for him, making him a close contender for Steve Rogers.

To lose out at such a high-profile role when he was so close sounds like a tough break, but Wilson Bethel has kept busy, primarily in the realm of television since Chris Evans has played Captain America on the big screen. Bethel is best known for his role on the CW’s Hart of Dixie from 2011 to 2015, and has also been on the HBO miniseries Generation Kill, The Astronaut Wives Club and How to Get Away With Murder.

Eight years later, he makes his way back to the MCU as a compelling villain on Netflix’s most successful television series, Daredevil. Wilson Bethel plays FBI Agent Benjamin ‘Dex’ Poindexter, a.k.a. Bullseye, now available to binge on Netflix.

The Earliest Twilight Script Was Crazy Different, According To Catherine Hardwicke

Mention the word Twilight, and the image of pale yet glittery vampires with a Pacific Northwest backdrop immediately comes to mind. But if the studio originally got its way, the word “Twilight” might have conjured images of Jet skis, CIA agents and an all-star athlete named Bella. Wait, what? Original Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke recently explained to CinemaBlend:

The [initial] script that I read had gone through the whole development process at MTV and Paramount. And you get all these notes — nobody’s fault or anything — but you get notes, and you try this, you try this. So it had veered very far from the book, and so I did not like it at all. And no studio wanted to make it. And so Paramount put it into it turnaround.

[Bella] was a track star in the first scene, not an every-girl kind of awkward and clumsy [kid]… she was like a bad ass, and then it escalated into this whole thing where there were CIA agents on jet skis trying to find the vampires, you know. It really went, ‘Whooooo!’ She was not working for the CIA, but it was a different movie.

This sounds something more in line with the Charlie’s Angels reboot that Kristen Stewart currently is filming, and not at all in line with Twilight, the story of a shy and reserved teenage girl named Bella who finds her voice in a relationship with a vampire, Edward. And certainly not in line with what Twilight author Stephenie Meyer conceived in her initial book.

Published in 2005, Twilight introduced readers to the star-crossed couple of Bella and Edward, soul mates destined to met even though she was a timid high schooler and he was a 104-year-old vampire. The series, over the years, has sold more than 120 million copies, proving that Meyer’s vision for this passionate romance had support.

What would that fan base have thought if the drastic changes made to the Twilight concept had remained in the initial script? Likely, there would have been rights, and instant rejection of the feature-film adaptation. And that would have instantly unplugged a five-movie franchise that totaled a whopping $3.3 billion in global ticket sales.

This can all be traced back to Catherine Hardwicke, who stood firm and fought to return to script for the original Twilight to the roots of Stephenie Meyer’s novel. During our exclusive chat, she told CinemaBlend:

When I read the book, I said, let’s go to the heart of why people love his book, you know? It’s this romantic, crazy, out of control, you know, the first time you fell in love, stupid passion that you have for somebody that’s totally wrong, but she doesn’t give a shit! And that’s what makes us alive. Let’s find that life force, where you will do reckless, crazy things because you know, you’re somebody. So that’s what I wanted in there. So we got rid of the jet skis. [laughs]

That was the right decision. Twilight connected with a massive audience, leading into numerous sequels including Twilight: New Moon and a two part Breaking Dawn. When did Catherine Hardwicke realize that she had touched a nerve? She tells CinemaBlend that it happened on opening weekend, as she recalls the reaction of the audience, and of a famous fan. Said Hardwicke:

I just heard from Eli Roth, because I’m working on a project with him, that Quentin Tarantino, on camera, said in an interview that Twilight made him feel like he was like a 13 year old girl, and that he loved it. That is awesome. That’s kind of funny and hilarious. And that’s exactly what I was trying to do. …

Opening night, I was in Austin [on opening weekend] at the Ale house and they were like, ‘Oh yeah, just pop in to the different screenings.’ And so I started to pop into one, and then I was mobbed. I mean, I’m not even an actor. I’m like, ‘Why am I being mobbed?’ A girl fainted in my arms, that I was there. I was like, ‘Oh Gosh. Oh Wow. Okay. This is a big deal!’

And it continues to be a big deal. We spoke with Catherine Hardwicke as Twilight was returning to theaters in celebration of its 10th anniversary. As such, Twilight will play in more than 450 movie theaters nationwide Sunday, October 21, and Tuesday, October 23, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. (local time). Want to go, and be reminded — like Tarantino — how it feels to be a teenage girl? Tickets for the 10th-anniversary screenings can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Bring your own glitter, though.
