The Week in Geek Entertainment News 1/25/2019 – Links
All the important geek news from this week rounded up in one place.
Leslie Jones WENT OFF this past weekend about this upcoming Ghostbusters movie set in the original universe. –Comic Book Resource
Leslie Jones, of course, faced backlash for this opinion, and Paul Feig spoke out in support. –Comicbook.com
Unsolved Mysteries reboot is coming to Netflix. Holy hell. –iHorror
Zombieland 2 movie rumors about the different types of zombies the characters will be facing, plus casting details. –Comicbook.com
A lot of time this week spent hating on Glass. This was my favorite opinion:
I feel like a lot of people’s problems with GLASS (which has issues, but which I mostly enjoyed) could be solved by a single shot of a tattoo on Dr. Staples’ wrist early in the film. No dialogue or commentary needed. Just one seemingly inconsequential shot.
