This wellness check was prompted by Melinda Coleman, after her daughter had made some concerning social media posts. Unfortunately, it was only four and a half hours later, at 8:30 PM, that Lakewood PD would receive another call; the one that reported Daisy as having committed suicide. The cause of death, according to those same reports, was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
2018’s Halloween ignored the myriad sequels of the past, and focused on Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) 40 years after surviving Michael Myers’ attack on Haddonfield. Those decades weren’t kind to Laurie’s psyche, and they were equally unkind to The Shape’s signature mask. Because once he escaped Smith’s Grove and procured his mask, it was appropriately aged and cracked given the time. Make-up effects designer Christopher Nelson was tasked with creating an older version of Michael’s mask, and recently shared John Carpenter’s hilarious reaction to it. As Nelson put it,
While his adult years as an actor started after his career as a pro-football player had come to an end, John David Washington actually got a head start with two roles as a child actor in some of his father’s films. Both Malcolm X and Devil in a Blue Dress saw Denzel Washington working with John David, though in smaller bit parts. Ultimately, in an effort to try and find another career besides the seemingly family business, John David Washington played football. But eventually he heeded the call, and his father’s advice, and the hard work began when he burst onto the scene as Ballers’ brash but introspective Ricky Jerret.
As Angelica shares her first memory of seeing Alexander in “Satisfied” we’re shown that moment, which happened in the background of the song “A Winter’s Ball”. We watch as Lafayette attempts to speak to her, before Lin-Manuel Miranda’s protagonist swoops in for their meet cute. It’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the background, but the above video shows how the cast is painstakingly recreating the same movements.

As for Idris Elba, he’s preparing to pivot from Marvel to DC in The Suicide Squad, after his character Heimdall was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. And after hearing his deep, slow-motion video to James Gunn, fans are thinking that he might be teasing his role as Bronze Tiger. He’s powerful villain who has been seen in The CW’s Arrow, and is an expert martial artist. It would be a badass role for Elba, but we’ll have to see if this latest fan theory comes to fruition.
Conscious uncoupling/separation/divorce, whatever you want to call it, has now permeated the break-up culture. Instead of people approaching me with, ‘Why did you say that?,’ they now approach me with, ‘How do you do that?’ It’s very different for every couple but, for me, it meant, more than anything, being accountable for my own part in the dissolution of the relationship. There existed aspects of myself I was trying to heal through this relationship that I wasn’t honest with myself about. I had been blind, guarded, invulnerable, intolerant. I had to admit that and be brave enough to share it.
5. The Conjuring 2 (2016)
Another sequel, The Conjuring 2 fares better than Insidious: Chapter 2 for a number of reasons. 1) It really just sticks to the same, successful formula that the first movie did, but in a new location (North London this time). 2) being rated R, James Wan, who is great with atmospheric horror, manages to still not go overboard, but also still push the R-rating far enough to be both suspenseful and scary. And three, I just think we don’t get enough period piece horror, and this is one of the better ones.
We again follow the Warrens (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) on another case. This installment dials up the creepiness, but it’s lacking the freshness of the original, which is why it’s at this place on the list.
Even without Zendaya in Dune, there will be plenty of star power on hand for Denis Villeneuve as he translates Frank Herbert’s book to the big screen. With Chalamet in the lead role of Paul, he’ll be surrounded by the likes of Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, and Jason Momoa in this all-star ensemble.
While it’s not exactly clear what “in stages” means in this case, we can certainly understand it to mean that, while both of these projects will move forward, they won’t be working at exactly the same pace they were before the shutdown of the parks. And with that, we can assume they’ll both be opening later than Walt Disney Imagineering was planning. Now, in both cases, these attractions didn’t have opening dates announced yet, so from the outside, we won’t necessarily see the delay, but it likely will be there.
