Until Dawn, the upcoming film adaptation of the beloved PlayStation horror video game, has added four rising actors to its cast. Per Deadline, Ella Rubin (The Idea of You), Michael Cimino (Love, Victor), Ji-young Yoo (Expats), and Odessa A’zion (Sitting in Bars with Cake) will star in the Until Dawn film.

Until Dawn stems from Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions. David F. Sandberg, who directed Lights Out and Shazam!, will helm the film. Blair Butler wrote the original draft, and Gary Dauberman is working on the latest version of the script.

“At PlayStation Productions, we are always looking to find creative and authentic ways to adapt our beloved games that our fans will enjoy,” Asad Qizilbash, head of PlayStation Productions, head of product for PlayStation Studios, Sony Interactive Entertainment, said in a statement via Deadline. “Alongside Screen Gems, we’ve assembled a fantastic cast of new characters that builds upon our already stellar filmmaking team and their vision for the adaptation. We’re excited to reveal more about the movie soon.”

Producers include Dauberman, Sandberg, Lotta Losten, Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, and PlayStation Productions’ Qizilbash and Carter Swan.

According to Deadline, the logline is under wraps. However, the film has been described as an “R-rated and terrifying love letter to the horror genre, centering on an ensemble cast.”

Developed by Supermassive Games, 2015’s Until Dawn is a video game featuring an interactive, choice-based narrative that follows eight friends trapped at a secluded lodge on Blackwood Mountain. Two of the group’s friends mysteriously vanished at the same lodge one year prior. This time, the group realizes they are not alone, and must battle a killer on the loose as well as the elements to survive the night.

Until Dawn’s popularity led to a spinoff, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, a prequel, The Inpatient, and a spiritual successor, The Quarry. A remake of Until Dawn is scheduled to arrive this fall on PlayStation 5 and PC.

3 PBS shows you should watch in July 2024
The cast of Hotel Portofino.

PBS viewers should send thanks to our neighbors across the Atlantic for sending over more originals in July. The U.K. has been supplying PBS with some of its best dramas for decades, and that's a trend that happily continues this month with the third seasons of both Cobra and Hotel Portofino. Those series take up two slots on our list of the three PBS shows that you should watch in July. Our third pick is Gods of Tennis, which is a look back at the legends of the game who redefined what a tennis player could be for men and women all over the world.

These are just a few of the new shows on PBS in July. There's a lot to watch, especially if you want to go back and revisit the great PBS shows to watch in June as well. Remember, PBS is free. All you have to do is make time for it.

Movies are struggling in 2024, but one genre is thriving
Nell Tiger Free lies with her hair sprawled out on a bed in The First Omen.

This hasn't been a great movie year — so far at least. From January to now, only a few truly incredible movies, like George Miller's Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga and Alex Garland's Civil War, have been released. A majority of the year's releases have, in fact, turned out to be either good or mediocre, and there have been more than a few outright terrible ones, too. That's to say nothing of how uneven 2024's box office numbers have been, with films like Civil War and The Beekeeper overperforming, while seemingly obvious hits like The Fall Guy and Furiosa have fallen short of financial expectations for them.

Some of the problems with this year's movie slate can, of course, be attributed to last year's writers' and actors'strikes, which will continue to have a prolonged impact on Hollywood's offerings. Certain issues could also just be the natural result of studios and filmmakers trying desperately to adapt to audiences' interests, which seem to be evolving on a more seismic scale than they, perhaps, ever have before.

As a free ad-supported streaming service (FAST) service, Tubi offers a wide selection of movies. But the offerings are constantly changing, which means when you see a movie you want to watch, you should queue it up ASAP before it's gone. Last month, for example, Tubi offered free access (with commercials) to movies like Rush Hour, Ford v Ferrari, and I, Robot, but those titles are no longer available to stream.

The good news is that they have been replaced by a new selection of films you can watch for free. These range from classic and relatively recent superhero movies, all of which were blockbuster hits, to iconic movies from the 1980s and '90s that you'll want to watch again and again. How can you navigate everything? That's where we come in. We have curated this list of the best movies on Tubi right now to keep you up to date with what's available. Check back next month for a new selection of titles from which to choose.
