The Snitchseeker forums seem to be the first place to pick up and highlight an EFE interview with Alfonso Cuaron about his involvement, or lack thereof, with a couple of high-profile Warner Bros. projects. Going to the EFE link, I don't see these quotes at all, but here's how Snitchseeker tells is. First up, Cuaron […]
Apparently set within the confines of that infamous Room 237, here's a book trailer for Doctor Sleep, Stephen King's upcoming sequel to The Shining.
Glen Mazzara is probably best known, certainly most discussed, as one of the toppled showrunners of The Walking Dead, but his previous credits include runs on Nash Bridges, The Shield and the TV spin-off of Crash.
Stephen King's novel Doctor Sleep picks up with Dan Torrance, formerly best known as Danny, the child in The Shining with the shining.

Could we be looking forward to duelling Shining spin-offs?
After its initial US launch but before its release in Europe, Stanley Kubrick cut 24 minutes out of The Shining. Some say he was spurred on by bad reviews; others have said that he quickly learned from the responses of paying audiences just how he could tighten up the experience.

After the colossal scale of The Way Back, Peter Weir is planning something very different for his next picture and will adapt Jennifer Egan's 2006 novel The Keep. Variety's description of the book is as good as useless, but I asked a friend who has read it and they said: It´s going to need a […]
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 […]
Recently, it looked for a moment like some long-lost scenes from The Shining had resurfaced… but then it became clear that they hadn't. Steady your anticipation of a new, special edition Blu-ray, then. Besides, the one that's already in stores is pretty special enough. And now, really rather cheap. Amazon in the US have cut […]
Back when The Shining was released, distribution patterns were very different than today. During their first week, films would be found in just a few cinemas, and not the thousands that are now typical. Stanley Kubrick certainly liked to take advantage of this. Perhaps most famously he axed 19 minutes from 2001: A Space Odyssey […]
