NOS4A2, based on Joe Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.

The Goldfinch‘s Ashleigh Cummings will play Vic McQueen, a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

Fred Armisen’s Five Best Roles

5 best fred armisen roles

Fred Armisen’s five best roles

ComingSoon.net is counting down our five favorite movies and TV shows starring Fred Armisen, who has had many terrific roles throughout his years as an actor. Check out our choices in the gallery below!

A former Saturday Night Live comedian who never stopped pursuing comedy—whether it be sketch or sitcoms or feature films—in the years after leaving the show, actor and musician Fred Armisen is nothing short of a one-of-a-kind comedic connoisseur. He really is a virtuoso in the truest sense of the word, managing to juggle leading the band on Seth Meyers’s late night show while starring in his own television shows, never showing any signs of fatigue or phoniness.

In addition to some hilarious SNL characters, Armisen is responsible for one of the best sketch comedy shows ever as well as a hilarious satire of documentaries that seems like it was made for an incredibly small audience, a venn diagram intersection of absurdist humor and spoofs of famous documentaries. No matter where he goes from here, it can be certain that Armisen will always be interested in making people laugh in his own unique way.

New Dark Phoenix poster reveals every hero has a dark side

Fox has released the Dolby poster for Dark Phoenix, the latest film in the sprawling X-Men franchise that (once again) looks to bring the Dark Phoenix saga to the big screen. Based on the image, it’ll be the moment that tears the X-Men apart. You can check out the poster below!

In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together.

Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
