Return to Silent Hill officially announced by Konami

It’s been a noteworthy day for the Silent Hill franchise. During today’s Silent Hill Transmission Livestream, Konami announced that a new Silent Hill film is officially in development and will reboot the franchise. Titled Return to Silent Hill, the film will bring back director Christophe Gans, who directed the first film in the 2006 Silent Hill series.

Return to Silent Hill will be based on the plot of the video game, Silent Hill 2. In the game, a man returns to Silent Hill after receiving a mysterious letter from his dead wife that she’s waiting there for him. Gans and producer Victor Hadida discussed the development behind the story and shared artwork from Return to Silent Hill in a new teaser trailer.

“This one now has so many years from the first one that there is a clear idea from Christophe to make it modern, but also very true to the video game,” said Hadida. “And that’s also what it is. We are also respecting the will of the author, the producers and Konami into this adaptation. Christophe is really somebody that respects the work that has been done, but that also has his own vision. It nurtures the creative vision of the authors from the game, but with a different vision from a filmmaker. And both have created, I believe, something that has struck the minds of the fans.”

Based on the video game of the same name, Silent Hill stars Radha Mitchell as Rose, a mother concerned for the well-being of her adopted daughter Sharon (Jodelle Ferland), who has nightmares about the town of Silent Hill. Desperate for answers, Rose drives to Silent Hill with Sharon but crashes her car on the way there. Upon awakening from the crash, Sharon is missing, so Rose walks to Silent Hill in search of her daughter. Rose soon learns that the town is full of monsters and evil as she unearths Sharon’s dark past. Directed by Gans, the film grossed over $100 million worldwide and spawned the 2012 sequel Silent Hill: Revelation.

Dish has ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV for basketball fans under one roof [Sponsored]
NBA basketball hoop on Dish Network

Lately, it's become apparent that the best place to catch basketball games is Dish. They've got so much under one service and sports fans can't quit rejoicing over it. For example, you can see every NFL game on Dish. Not some on Dish, some on YouTube, and a few others on that questionably legal streaming site; just all on Dish. Basketball fans deserve similar treatment and with Dish they get it. Right now, you can get ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV together, for as low as $105 per month when you sign up for Dish. Plus, if you switch to Dish now, you get $100 back to spend how you like. That can pay for Dish's NBA League Pass or go towards a month of service, effectively giving you one month of Dish for just $5. Tap the button below to see the plans yourself, or keep reading to see why we like Dish and these channels for basketball.

Why you should sign up for Dish to watch basketball
One of the first things to recognize about the Dish service is just how inclusive it is. Which it does require installation — it is a satellite-receiver based service — that installation can go anywhere. That includes places where high speed internet companies and typical cable providers don't have the infrastructure for. You know the type of place. Plus, it has great features, like Dish multi-view, to watch 2-4 games at once and possibly even record up to 16.

Like the hit Netflix movie May December? Then check out these 4 movies that are just like it
Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore in May December.

The reviews are in for Netflix's May December, and the critical acclaim it's receiving may make it a contender during Oscar season. In this film, Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Alright) plays Gracie Atherton-Yoo, a former teacher who seduced her student (and future husband), Joe Yoo (Riverdale's Charles Melton), when he was only 13. Now, in the present, Elizabeth Berry (Black Swan's Natalie Portman) is an actress who is spending time with the Yoo family because she is playing Gracie in the big screen adaptation of their lives. And Elizabeth is getting a little too involved in her drive to understand Gracie and Joe's relationship.

May-December romances between an older woman and a younger man, or vice versa, are not uncommon in Hollywood. And while there aren't many films with the exact plot of May December, we have chosen three of the most prominent examples of May-December romances that should appeal to anyone who saw Netflix's new drama.
