The Trench Updates

Screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick surprisingly gave us an update about the upcoming Aquaman spinoff movie focusing on the deepest part of the ocean called The Trench. He explained that The Trench movie is set chronologically between the first and second Aquaman films. There is no further news about The Trench at this time.

Michael Giacchino’s Directorial Debut

Famed composer Michael Giacchino made his directorial debut in a short called Monster Challenge, starring Patton Oswalt and Ben Schwartz. In the short, the hapless Patton Oswalt finds himself catapulted into an outrageous series of challenges in an infectiously silly tribute to the eccentricities of Japanese game shows and monster films. You can watch Michael Giacchino’s Monster Challenge online now.
