This week’s The Dark Tower starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey is the first big-budget adaptation of a Stephen King novel in a while, but King’s books and short stories have inspired more than 30 years of great horror, sci-fi, and drama films. Even as The Dark Tower is designed to launch a new franchise based on King’s epic fantasy series, the film is littered with references, homages, and Easter eggs to previous King novels - and to the movies they spawned. In this new video from ScreenCrush’s Britt Hayes and Ryan Arey, we connect all the dots between The Dark Tower and the long history of Stephen King cinema.
It’s almost impossible to watch Game of Thrones without going through a range of emotions. One minute you’re on the edge of your seat, heart rate through the roof, and the next you’re sobbing over a character’s death. The HBO series is filled with so much blood and backstabbing that it’s easy to focus on its goriest and most devastating moments. But what about the feel good ones? What about the times Game of Thrones made you cheer with glee, stand up and clap, or tear up with joy? Those are the ones we love most.
July 1 marks an important anniversary in the history of movies: The day the Motion Picture Association of America introduced the PG-13 rating.

In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five!

You might know that The Usual Suspects title comes from a famous line in Casablanca. But did you know that director Bryan Singer and writer Christopher McQuarrie thought of that title before they had a plot for the movie? They also thought of their movie’s famous poster, with all the main characters standing in a lineup, before they had a story too. They put those pieces together and worked backwards from there. That’s just one of the unusual facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
