Teen Wolf season 3, episode 6 just finished airing on the East Coast! Come read our recap and discuss “Motel California” with your fellow fans.

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 6 “Motel California” began with a flashback to the 1970s. We see a man enter a hotel room, injured and bitten. He puts a shot gun to his head and pulls the trigger, and afterwards we get a close up of his license and see the name Argent.

Flashing to the present, the cross country bus stops at the same hotel for the night. Lydia feels apprehensive, but doesn’t have much choice. It’s the closest hotel with the most vacancies.

Stiles tells Scott his list of suspects, the main ones being Cora, Deaton, and Lydia. He doesn’t trust the other two, but it’s obvious he doesn’t like suspecting Lydia. However, they can’t deny something strange is going on with her.

Meanwhile, Miss Blake takes Derek to his apartment after he comes to her bleeding and half dead. He seems very touch and go for a while.

Teen Wolf Season 3 Motel California Boyd

Back at the hotel, things start to get strange right off the bat with Boyd acting more stoic than usual (who thought that was possible?), and Scott being a little too forward with Allison. Lydia goes to the front desk to get new towels and sees a number on the wall. The woman tells her the hotel is number one in terms of most guest suicides — 198 and counting.

Back in the hotel room, Lydia hears voices coming from next door. They belong to a young couple, who promptly makes a pact to kill each other. When she and Allison go to investigate, they don’t find anything. The others begin to have their own experiences, with Boyd finding a young girl in the freezer and Isaac thinking he hears his father yelling at him.

When Lydia and Allison go back to the front desk, they notice that the number on the wall has gone from 198 to 201.

Next, Scott gets a call from his mother. She’s outside the hotel room with Deucalion, who proceeds to slash her throat open. It’s another hallucination (thank God), and is followed up with Ethan and Boyd having their own experiences. It seems Ethan has some fears having to do with his brother, and Boyd appears to have witnessed his sister dying.

Lydia is, naturally, upset when Stiles tells her he’s wondering if she’s behind the murders. She walks away, but stops when she hears a baby crying. She says someone is drowning, and as she comes to this conclusion, we see Boyd attempting to kill himself in the bathtub.

Lydia and Stiles break Boyd and Isaac of their trances by putting flames to them. As they leave the hotel room, they come upon Scott holding a flare over a can of spilled gas. Stiles won’t let him go out like that, though, and risks his own life, telling Scott he’ll have to take him out too.

Stiles saves Scott and tosses the flare away, but something blows it toward the gasoline. Lydia knocks them to the ground to save them, but when she looks at the fire, she sees the Darach amongst the flames.

Later, Lydia figures out that the Darach put wolfsbane in the coach’s whistle, and that’s how everyone was poisoned. Ethan, because they saved his life, decides to give them some information. He tells Scott that they think Derek is alive. However, because he killed Ennis, Derek either has to join their pack or they’ll kill him.

At the very end of the episode, we see Chris visiting none other than Gerard, who proceeds to tell him that Deucalion is the Alpha that bit his uncle, the man we saw commit suicide in the beginning of the episode.

Favorite quotes from ‘Motel California’

Lydia: “A lot can happen in one night.”
Miss Blake: “Not exactly how I imagined our first date.”
Allison: “After everything we’ve been through, I believe you.”
Stiles: “Most places leave a mint under the pillow. This one leaves a record of all the horrible things that happened here.”
Miss Blake: “You’re like one giant open wound.”
Scott: “Maybe I should be no one again.”
Stiles: “Scott, just listen to me. You’re not no one. You’re someone. You’re my best friend. I need you. Scott, you’re my brother.”

Teen Wolf season 3, episode 7 “Currents” will air next week, Monday, July 15 at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.

Disney is making another live-action movie, and this time it’s James and the Giant Peach, to be developed by Director Sam Mendes.

To refresh your memory, James and the Giant Peach is the terrifying delightful children’s movie directed by Henry Selick and based off of the Roald Dahl story. It features nightmare-inducing adorable stop-motion animated bugs that helped James float away from his mean aunts in a — you guessed it — giant peach.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

Disney is making another live-action movie, and this time it’s James and the Giant Peach, to be developed by Director Sam Mendes.

To refresh your memory, James and the Giant Peach is the terrifying delightful children’s movie directed by Henry Selick and based off of the Roald Dahl story. It features nightmare-inducing adorable stop-motion animated bugs that helped James float away from his mean aunts in a — you guessed it — giant peach.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

Now, according to Deadline, Disney is developing an all-live-action remake of the film. Nick Hornby will write the script, while Joe Roth is in negotiations to sign on as a producer.

If Mendes’ name sounds familiar, it’s because he directed the last two James Bond features, both Skyfall and Spectre, as well as 1999’s American Beauty.

You can check out the trailer for the horrifying original film below:

As of late, Disney has been announcing live-action versions of its properties left and right, including The Nutcracker (which has a huge cast of well-known actors), The Little Mermaid (with Lin-Manuel Miranda attached to help write the music), Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson), and Cruella (starring Emma Stone), among others.

With the amount of remakes — especially in the live-action department — it’s no wonder James and the giant Peach is the latest to be announced.

Hypable speaks to co-founder Jeff Annison about Legion M’s goals, fan engagement, and potential impact on the entertainment industry.

An exciting new project launched over the summer: Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Hype Podcast sat down with co-founder and company president Jeff Annison, in order to learn more about the ambitious startup that promises to give fans more creative control of entertainment production.

The full interview is available to download here or via iTunes, or you can stream it below:

In the interview, Annison explains the mission of Legion M, which is to bring fans directly into the production process. Says Annison, “For the first time in history, we are architected to be built from the ground up to be owned by fans.”

With a ‘Legion’ of fan investors behind them, Annison believes that Legion M’s approach to selecting and developing projects will be very different from anything else we’ve seen in Hollywood.

Where usually creators will struggle to make their content stand out from the crowd, “bringing the audience into the process [of creating entertainment], we’ve already got a built-in audience,” Annison explains. “If you can have the audience of content be invested in content, it gives that content a competitive advantage.”

One of the key ways in which Legion M hopes to influence the creative industry is by opening the door for more diverse projects.

As Hollywood is so revenue-driven, oftentimes the ‘risk’ of letting a movie’s lead character be a woman, a person of color and/or a member of the LGBT community is simply considered too great. But Legion M, being owned by fans, has the opportunity to tip the scales. Because if the investors want more diversity and new kinds of stories, that’s exactly what they’re going to get.

“The reason that there are so many superhero movies and reboots and remakes… Hollywood’s figured out the formula. You pick something with an established fanbase, and if you make the movie you know it’s less risky because you know those people are gonna come see the next Superman movie,” says Annison. “Whereas if it’s an unknown story, you just don’t know. So we believe when you make the audience part of the process, these fans that are part of our studio … if you’ve got an audience that’s baked into it, that gives you so much more creative leeway.”

In practice, this means that Legion M, “could come up with a completely new and novel story that’s never been tried before, and know that it’s gonna have some success” — which means that it’d actually get produced, unlike many original ideas that come to Hollywood to die.

Further, fan owners of Legion M can experience unprecedented involvement with the creative process. Not only are they involved with selecting and developing projects, but, “our promise to our investors is that we’re gonna take you along for the ride. When we film a movie, we wanna live-stream from the set. When we have project opportunities, we wanna put them in front of you. We give the Legion a voice.”

To start with, Legion M is partnering with Seth Green and Matthew Senreich’s Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, which created Robot Chicken. Annison explains that they still have “dozens” of projects that networks have rejected, and Legion M is working on bringing some of them to life.

In terms of representation, Legion M doesn’t necessarily want to commit to a quota of diversity. Instead, where they expect to be able to influence Hollywood is at the “table” where these decisions are made — and, “because we’re owned by such a broad, diverse group of people, we’ve got a better shot than anybody else at being able to affect that change.”

As Annison explains: “Fans have the ultimate power. Our money is what makes this whole thing spin around. When we combine and come together, we’ve got all the power.”
