Youtube's Karate Kid Series Cobra Kai Will Be Faithful To The Original Movie

A YouTube Executive revealed new details about the YouTube Red original series Cobra Kai, which is based on the 1980s classic The Karate Kid at Television Critics Association.

YouTube Global Head of Original Content Susanne Daniels told /Film that Ralph Macchio and William Zabka will reprise their rival roles as Daniel Larusso and Johnny Lawrence from the original movie. The series comes from Harold and Kumar franchise creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and Hot Tub Time Machine writer Josh Heald, but Daniels insists that Cobra Kai is not a straight comedy.

“It is a half an hour format but I would call it a dramedy. I think it leans into the tone of the movies in that there are dramatic moments throughout. I think it’s very faithful really in some ways to what the movie set about doing, the lessons imparted in the movie if you will. It’s next generation Karate Kid.

How Kitty Pryde Could Bring the X-Men into the McU

Fox is still continuing to expand their X-Men film slate, and the last week has seen surprising new reports. It seems Fox is actually considering a Kitty Pryde movie. The character doesn’t have the same kind of prestige as the likes of Cyclops and Wolverine, but she’s still a real fan-favorite. In fact, Joss Whedon loved her so much that she inspired him to create Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Trailer Watch: “Everlasting” Is on the Brink of Cancellation in “UnREAL’s” Third Season

“UnREAL”

Try as she might, Rachel (Shiri Appleby) can never leave “Everlasting” behind. A new trailer has dropped for Season 3 of “UnREAL,” and it’s clear that the troubled but gifted producer is trying to distance herself — emotionally and geographically — from the “Bachelor”-esque TV show she worked on. Rachel seems to be on a nature retreat of some kind when her restorative, peaceful experience floating in a lake is interrupted by Quinn’s (Constance Zimmer) voice.

Quinn has come to drag her protégé/frenemy back to the toxic environment she tried to leave behind — and she sure makes it hard for Rachel to say no. “‘Everlasting’ is about to be cancelled. For real. I need you,” she begs. And with that, Rachel returns to the set.

The reality dating show at the center of “UnREAL” is making history for the second season in a row. Last season of “Everlasting

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Rewatch: Phases

Welcome to 2018! We're back for the first Buffy rewatch post of the year. And, for you Oz fans out there, it's time to celebrate yet again.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 15 had it all for the mellow fellow. Plot, relationship, and his wolfy tenancies became part of the show. "Phases" is not my favorite episode; however, it serves a much-needed purpose for the Scoobies.

Let's find out why by rewatching "Phases."

Before we get into the thick of things with Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 15, let's take a second to acknowledge the past. We finally saw the cheerleading trophy again!

For those who need a refresher, Amy's mother (the villain of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 1 Episode 3) got trapped in the trophy after a spell went awry. No one knows she's in there; she's just trapped. This was the perfect twist that left my jaw dropped the first time I watched it.

Joss Whedon & Erika Alexander Send Buffy’s Giles Back to School

The majority of movie-going audiences know Joss Whedon from the superhero blockbusters he has directed, namely The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Justice League, which he took over after Zack Snyder left the production due to a personal tragedy. Yet the properties which first made him famous — Firefly/Serenity and Buffy the Vampire Slayer — have sizeable fanbases, with cult followings still rabid for anything new.

The primary source of new material for those shows have been series from Dark Horse Comics, specifically Buffy comic books. While the TV show had a companion comic from 1998-2003, after the show finished its seven season run, the story continued in a pivotal series aptly titled Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight. This ongoing was popular enough to lead to Season Nine, Ten and Eleven, as well as various miniseries and graphic novels. Whedon was the writer or co-writer for most of Season

Sarah Michelle Gellar's Daughter Has a Very Special Ice Skating Teacher--Michelle Kwan

Sarah Michelle Gellar's Daughter Has a Very Special Ice Skating Teacher--Michelle Kwan
Michelle Kwan first skated her way into our hearts at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan, earning a silver medal. Now almost 20 years later, the decorated Olympian is helping out some ice skating newbies learn the sport. But the ice princess isn't helping out just any rink ballerinas, she's teaching the oh-so-excited daughter of Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.  Taking to the East West Ice Palace in Artesia, Calif., with pal Elsa Marie Collins and her 8-year-old daughter Charlotte Grace, the former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star posted a series of videos and photos on her Instagram. After the day of chilly fun, the hands-on mom wrote, "Epic Day!!! When your daughters want to learn to...

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Rewatch: Surprise

  • TVfanatic
Brace yourselves, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans. We've got a special Friday edition of the rewatch just for you. (And things are about to become intense from here on out.)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 13 was the beginning of the series's change in tone. Sure, there were dramatic and dark hours before "Surprise," but there's something at this moment that changed it all. It helped shaped the progression to become the show we all know and love.

Let's dig deeper and find out why in "Surprise."

I loved watching Buffy's prophetic dreams.

It's such an underrated part to the series. Many forget that it's an ability she has as a Slayer because it was slowly phased out; however, it makes such a difference when used. Some of her adventures were only solved because of the dreams.

The last we do see this ability appear is in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

10 Bloopers That Made Iconic Villains Much Less Scary

<p>It tends to be the heroic characters that we remember most in movies and television shows, but the villainous characters are undoubtedly every bit as important as them when it comes to making any story complete. Any given villain’s capacity to intimidate and scare us (and indeed the characters they’re opposing) is all part of his or her’s appeal – and it can be extremely hard to take a villain seriously if they lack that ability. It is, however, sometimes fun to witness these villainous characters out of context, such as when the actors are in character but something goes wrong – and looking at blooper reels is an ideal way to make that happen. This video will take you through ten bloopers that make iconic villains from a variety of sources look A Lot less scary than they usually are. You’ll see bloopers involving the following characters

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Rewatch: Bad Eggs

  • TVfanatic
Let the holiday season begin! After two weeks away with projects, we're back to turn on the rewatch. Unfortunately, it has to be with Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 Episode 12.

It's not that "Bad Eggs" is, well, a bad egg. It's just not good. And it's simply at the bottom of my rewatch list, so much so that I purposely skip it.

Don't believe me? Join me in rewatching "Bad Eggs."

I can't even with the Gorch brothers. They may be one of the worst minor guest villains ever. It's obvious they were set up to potentially come back later as a dangerous foe.

One of the reasons "Bad Eggs" was so bad was that much of the narrative focused on the point-of-view of the vampire brothers.

We've seen villains come and go, but we didn't follow them in the moments between fighting Buffy. These scenes were saved for the Big Bads.

David Boreanaz, Primetime’s Most Valuable Player, Has Another Hit With ‘Seal Team’ — Ratings Watch

David Boreanaz, Primetime’s Most Valuable Player, Has Another Hit With ‘Seal Team’ — Ratings Watch
David Boreanaz is once again proving his primetime power. Fresh off a 12-season run on the Fox staple “Bones,” Boreanaz didn’t miss a beat: His new CBS drama, “Seal Team,” has already been given a full 22-episode first season order, and is shoo-in for a sophomore renewal.

Not many performers can brag about starring in back-to-back-to-back hits, which makes Boreanaz a TV heavy hitter on par with stars like Ted Danson and William Shatner — the rare actors who have enjoyed multiple hits on unrelated shows. Boreanaz, of course, top-lined the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” spinoff “Angel” for several years (and 110 episodes) before moving on to 246 episodes of “Bones.”

Seal Team” stars Boreanaz as Jason Hayes, the leader of the Tier One team, a group deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice. The show has been consistently making the top 25 ratings among both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

Hear Sarah Michelle Gellar Reprise Her Cruel Intentions Role for Sly Musical Adaptation
Sarah Michelle Gellar is stepping back into the shoes of her cunning Cruel Intentions villain Kathryn Merteuil for one special cause: to tell audience members to turn off their cell phones.

The 40-year-old actress has recorded the pre-show announcement for Off-Broadway’s Cruel Intentions: The ’90s Musical Experience — the sly send-up of Roger Kumble’s 1999 teen classic that’s now playing at New York City’s (le) Poisson Rouge.

In the announcement, exclusive to listen to on People, Gellar doesn’t waste any time tapping into her character’s biting tongue. “It’s not that difficult, morons,” she tells

‘Legendary: Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Board Game Review

Although I can’t for the life of me think why it’s happening now (it is twenty years since the original series, so maybe that’s why) Buffy The Vampire Slayer has just been converted into the latest Legendary deck-building game. For those who are unfamiliar with them, the Legendary series is a collection of complete, out-of-the-box card games for one to five players that recreate pitched battles between famous (aka legendary) forces in popular universes from comics, film and television. Other universes to receive this treatment so far are Marvel, Aliens and Predator, for example, so you can probably imagine the kind of rivalry that you’ll see.

Legendary Buffy focuses exclusively on the 1997 TV series starring Sarah Michelle Geller et-al, and among the 501 cards (500 in later print runs thanks to a bonus “Dingoes Ate My Baby” card) you’ll find a set of fourteen cards for each

How Doug Jones Became Director Guillermo del Toro’s Go-To Master of Disguise (Exclusive)

How Doug Jones Became Director Guillermo del Toro’s Go-To Master of Disguise (Exclusive)
Doug Jones is a chameleon who quite literally disappears into his work.

With over 150 film credits in the last three decades, Jones has become a king of the screen, but you may never have seen his face. Essentially, he has the kind of anonymity many celebrities dream of.

“I get the best of both worlds, honestly,” Jones admitted to Et when we sat down to discuss his latest transformation in Guillermo del Toro’s monster romance The Shape of Water, which is now in theaters. “I get to be in major motion pictures for 30 years and I can go to Starbucks and no one knows who I am. That’s delightful. But also, when it’s announced that I am at Comic-Con or something like that and I’m being ‘Doug Jones’ that day and people know it, I get to play that card, too.”

The key to Jones’ facelessness lies in the fact that his face has
