Jon Jon Briones (Sons of Anarchy), […]

In what might end up being one of the best viral marketing campaigns ever for Hulu's Castle Rock (then again…), the staff at The Stanley Hotel — the visual inspiration for director Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror film adaptation of Stephen King's 1977 novel and the filming location for the 1997 television adaptation — had a […]

The report credits the information to an unnamed insider that also says the 76 year-old doesn't plan on stepping out of the lime-light or giving up his court-side Lakers tickets… he just won't […]
If you look really, really closely...
It was thirteen years ago today that Stanley Kubrick passed away. To commemorate, here's a video that has been weaving in and out of my Twitter feed and inbox for the last week or so. It's a UK TV spot for The Shining made entirely out of alternative cuts and unused takes. The reason that […]
