Season Two of the hit Star Wars / Disney+ series The Mandalorian is premiering tomorrow, October 30th. For those of you who haven’t had time to re-watch season one, good news! A 90-second recap was posted to the Star Wars Canada YouTube page.
We’re two episodes into the new season of Star Trek: Discovery and so far the jump into the future has created an intriguing new status quo for the crew to explore, and both episodes have been good!
The opening credits sequence –already one of the more visually beautiful title sequences on TV– has seen some updates to reflect that new status quo, so let’s take a look at those now.
Citizen Kane is widely regarded as one of the best movies ever made, and the story behind that film is the subject of David Fincher’s latest project. Mank follows the life of Herman J. Mankiewicz, Orson Welles co-writer on Citizen Kane, as the project is being written and made.
Have you ever watched Scrooged and thought “you know, I’d really like to see The Night the Reindeer Died in real life? I mean, I can’t be the only one.
Anyway, here is the trailer for an upcoming movie called Fatman, which is a real movie and is really happening.
Here’s a true story. When The Witches came out in 1990, it scared the crap out of me, and I don’t think I have seen it since. That might be something I should rectify now, as Robert Zemeckis has directed a new adaptation of the Roald Dahl story.
Tom Hanks, aka ‘Americas Dad’, is one of our greatest living actors and while he has starred in films from nearly every time period and tackled almost every subject you can think of, I don’t think he’s never actually made a western.
Until now, that is. Here’s the first trailer for News of the World, the new western from director Paul Greengrass.
A stellar cast of amazing actors? Check. A plot to destroy the world? Check. An American agent forming a deniable team of badasses to take on the threat? Check. Each badass has a distinct speciality? Check. Said American agent having a badass nickname? Check.
The 355 hits all the checkboxes that an action movie should but with one difference: the team is all women. I, for one, think this looks awesome. It looks dumb as a bag of hammers and exactly up my alley. Let’s take a look.
The new action-comedy led by Vancouver Local Ryan Reynolds has a new trailer to start promoting it ahead of it’s December 11th 2020 release date. I have no idea if that date is going to stick, but let’s take a look at the trailer anyway!
True story, I low-key love the 90s teen witch film The Craft, and I always have. A sequel seems like something that would have happened ages ago, but never did. Weird, given that while the film didn’t do gangbusters business it did turn a profit and go on to be a cult classic.
In any event, there is a sequel coming out now, so let’s take a look at the trailer.
The first full trailer for the upcoming Netflix original series The Haunting of Bly Manor dropped a few days ago. I’m a big fan of Mike Flanagan, with both the 2019 film Doctor Sleep being one of my favourites of last year, and the 2018 series The Haunting of Hill House being one of my favourite series of that year.
Bly Manor is the second in what officially appears to be an anthology series, with the same production crew and many of the same actors, but a self-contained story with new characters. Based on the 1898 Henry James story The Turning of the Screw, this series will hopefully be creepy another great entry in Mike Flanagans incredibly effective horror filmography.
So let’s take a closer look!
What is the cost of genius? Based on the 1983 novel of the same name, The Queen’s Gambit will follow Anya Taylor-Joy as a chess prodigy, and attempts to answer just that.
You should probably save the date on this one.
The Haunting of Hill House was one my favourite things that I watched last year (yes, I was late to the party) and Mike Flanagan is back with a follow up series, The Haunting of Bly Manor. Based on the Henry James story Ihe Turn of the Screw, it takes place in 1980s and has a young nanny being hired at the titular Bly Manor to look after two young children, and of course everything is not as it seems.
Let’s take a look!
In 1968 8 men –Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, Lee Weiner, and Bobby Seale– were charged with conspiracy and inciting a riot following the massive anti-Vietnam War protest at the Democratic Convention.
With the government wanting to send a message to protesters following what would later be classified as a police riot, this would become the trial of the year and a big moment in 1960s America. Aaron Sorkin has been working on this screenplay for ever a decade, and now has brought it to screen as director as well. Let’s take a look.
The first of the Marvel Cinematic Universe television series is finally on it’s way! WandaVision will premiere on Disney+ in December and the first trailer came out yesterday.
It’s a short trailer but there is a lot to look at, so let’s take a closer look.
The next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to include, as of this writing, 7 TV series on Disney+ in addition to the six currently announced films. The “Cinematic Universe” is officially more of a “mixed media universe.” Remember when part of the appeal of the films was that they made the impenetrable web of comic book continuity accessible again to new fans? That feels like it’s nearly over.
Anyway, the first of the Disney+ series to hit the service is going to be WandaVision, in which Scarlet Witch seems to be living out a 50s TV fantasy life with Vision. Only one issue: Vision is dead. So what is going on? Let’s take a look!
