The Muppets are getting a Halloween special in The Haunted Mansion, Showtime developing an Al Capone/Elliott Ness series, legendary actress Olympia Dukakis passed away, Hannah John-Kamen is the new Red Sonja, The Flash is losing two main cast members and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
Brian Henson takes his family’s creations into places they’ve never dared dream of with the hard R comedy The Happytime Murders, where human detective Connie Edwards (Melissa McCarthy) gets paired up with a Muppet PI to investigate a string of gruesome Muppet murders.
A bunch of release date shuffling and reveals this week along with a massive amount of Adult Swim and Cartoon Network shows coming to Hulu, some classic villains coming to TMNT 2, an animated Spider-Man movie is in the works and much more in the News Shotgun.
With the second Pirates movie coming out, The Asylum tried their usual confusion tactics by releasing Pirates of Treasure Island, with Lance Henriksen taking on the iconic role of Long John Silver. It’s about as awful as you think it is.
