Teen Wolf Returns This Week with New Movie on Paramount+ Movie

Teen Wolf Returns This Week with New Movie on Paramount+ Movie

Teen Wolf is returning as a film to Paramount+ this week.

The popular fantasy series Teen Wolf is returning after ending its run only a few years ago. The new film, Teen Wolf: The Movie, is set to release on Paramount+ later this week, and early reviews are already starting to come out. The series, which originally aired on MTV from 2011-2017, was a hit with audiences and ran for 100 episodes.

The new film takes place almost 15 years after the series finale and follows the characters as they are older and at different life stages. A terrifying evil has emerged and brings Scott McCall back to Beacon Hill, leading to the return of normal supernatural beings such as banshees, Kitsunes, werecoyotes, and shapeshifters.

Creator Jeff Davis penned the script for the film, and it is directed by Russell Mulcahy. Most of the original cast is returning for the film, including Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, and Tyler Hoechlin, who also have producer credits for the movie. However, Dylan O'Brien will not be reprising his role as Stiles, but the character will be referenced in the movie.

Early reviews of Teen Wolf are starting to come out. However, critics are divided on their opinions of the film. Some reviewers praise the return of familiar characters and the nostalgia factor, while others criticize the film for its lack of key ingredients that made the original series so successful.

"Teen Wolf: The Movie takes such great care to set up everyone's character arc, and then so many get almost no real resolution...Even if that was done on purpose in order to show there's still life in this franchise, it leaves things frustratingly incomplete."

One of the main criticisms of the film is its new tone, which some reviewers felt needed to include the grit and darkness that the series was known for. Many also need more resolution for certain characters and the way the film sets up a potential sequel. Despite the mixed reviews, it will be interesting to see what fans of the original series have to say about the film. The official trailer is below and the movie will premiere on Jan. 26, 2023, on the streaming platform called Paramount+.

Top Gun: Maverick Director Joseph Kosinski Says U.S. Navy Confiscated Camera During Pre-Production, Deleted Photos

For example, the film director recently recalled his VIP access benefits of going to China Lake, a naval air weapons station in the Mojave Desert, shooting in a top-secret aviation hangar, and collaborating with “the actual engineers who make the real secret aircraft” in making his film. For Kosinski, working with the U.S. Navy “was just a dream come true," according to a recent report from Deadline. What’s more, for Kosinski, being immersed in these actual settings with the Navy made for a realness that audiences can feel in the emotional quality of the movie. “I think you feel it when you see it, because you don’t feel like you’re in a Hollywood-designed setting.” In an interview back in December, Maverick producer Jerry Bruckheimer even mused that Maverick’s impact in the way it was filmed might influence studios to step away from using excessive CGI.

Top Gun: Maverick film Director Joseph Kosinski enjoyed a privileged position with the U.S. Navy for several years while making the Academy Award-nominated action blockbuster sequel to 1986’s Top Gun. This means he “got to go to places that civilians don’t get to go to” and “got to see things that no civilian would get to see.”

However, Kosinski’s “quest for authenticity” also came with military rules, and in pre-production, it seems he managed to capture something that no civilian is meant to see. “I had my camera confiscated at one point. Wiped clean,” Kosinski said. “ I took some pictures and maybe captured something I wasn’t supposed to capture, and my camera was quickly returned to me without any photos on it.” So we can be sure that no top-secret images made it into one of the top-grossing films of 2022.

The crew had to follow strict rules for filming on fighter jets, according to Top Gun: Maverick cinematographer Claudio Miranda. Wing-mounted cameras were prohibited to protect plane performance, and dorsal and bomb mounts were allowed, according to Miranda, “as a consolation prize.” Even more limiting for Miranda, planes using these camera mounts could only fly at 3Gs. In total, six navy officers were consulted on the project, reportedly secret within the Navy itself, to ensure the film was “professional and… accurate” from the beginning. “I’m a realist with movies, I want to go in there and see reality,” explained U.S. Navy Captain J. J. “Yank” Cummings in an interview on consulting for the movie. This recalls stories of how the U.S. Navy controlled conditions to create a positive image in the first Top Gun movie, eventually boosting recruitment sign-up following the film's release.

Ultimately, Top Gun: Maverick amassed more than 800 hours of footage that we can presume achieved clearance with U.S. Navy protocols, which Kosinski then had to cut down to a final movie. According to the director, it comes down to the “story you’re telling.” “You end up throwing out stuff that you are sure, when you’re shooting it, will absolutely be in the movie,” he explained, but “stuff has to fall away for the good of the film.” Yet Kosinski certainly enjoyed the journey. “When you’re directing the film, you kind of get to become a ‘subject matter expert,’ which is the Navy term — the SME— on any subject you want. So, I got to live that dream of being in the Navy for a couple years.”
