.Greetings, programs! We’re back after a week away! Join us for a lively discussion of Air (now on Prime Video) and Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (now in cinemas). One of these movies we really liked, and the other, the opposite of that. Listen to find out which is which!
There really is a whole lot of news each week, isn’t there? This week has seem some pretty big bombs drop such as Kevin Feige working on a Star Wars, VIFF starting up, Jurassic World 3 casting news, Jason Bateman directing news, Phoebe Waller-Bridge gets a truck load of cash from Amazon news, Batman news, Wes Anderson news, and Spider-man is back in the MCU news. Let’s dive right in!
Remember that film that came out in 2011 about three schmucks who try to kill their bosses? It made all the money so here comes a sequel. Good news though: the cast is still amazing. Bad news though: it still looks like a retread.
It’s finally back. It’s _finally_ back. Arrested Development was cancelled after just three seasons on Fox because despite critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base the series never gained enough rating to justify keeping it on the air (or so Fox said, many are dubious of this).
There have been various efforts to bring the show back through the 7 years since it’s cancellation but finally Netflix bought the rights, brought everyone back and now we have a 4th season. But is it the 4th season we’ve been waiting for? Yes and no.
Good news everyone! Netflix has announced the debut date for the forthcoming fourth season of Arrested Development. [According to Deadline](http://www.deadline.com/2013/04/arrested-development-gets-premiere-date-on-netflix-order-increased-to-15-episodes/) 26th of May is the lucky day.
> Arrested Development centers around Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) and his eccentric family comprised of his son George Michael (Michael Cera), his father George Bluth Sr (Jeffrey Tambor), his mother Lucille (Jessica Walter), his brothers George Oscar Bluth II (Will Arnett), Buster Bluth (Tony Hale) and sister Lindsay Funke (Portia de Rossi), and Lindsay’s husband Tobias (David Cross) and their daughter Maeby (Alia Shawkat). Season 4 picks up the family seven years after the original series ended, with each new episode dedicated to a different character’s point of view. Hurwitz, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Jim Vallely and Troy Miller executive produce.
I’ve recently started re-watching the original three seasons on Netflix in anticipation of this and I’d actually forgotten how much I love the show. The style of comedy is exactly up my alley and I really hope that the new season reaches the same level of ridiculous hilarity.
Today, following yesterday’s announcement, a new poster showed up on the [Arrested Development Facebook page](https://www.facebook.com/ArrestedDevelopment) so here’s a look at that too.
What’s that you say? A movie about how are interconnectedness is anctually disconnecting us from people?
Oh wait, maybe not so much. This looks promising to me, but it also looks like a film that will spend the first two acts or so convincing you it will have something big to say and then in the third act everything will come to a head but we won’t actually learn anything.
