‘Song of Parkland’ Trailer: Drama Students Band Together in the Wake of the School Shooting

On February 14, 2018, a gunman entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and killed seventeen people and injured another seventeen. A drama class was in the middle of rehearsal for a musical when they heard shots being fired, so it’d be totally reasonable if everyone wanted to abandon the show once they returned to school. But that’s not what happened. Instead, in one of the most inspiring instances of “the show must go on” you’ll ever hear, the drama class decided to go...

‘Fyre’ Trailer: Netflix’s Documentary About the Music Festival’s Legendary Failure

Organizers promised attendees they’d be a part of an epic, unforgettable experience, and they certainly were – but far from the one they expected. Fyre Festival Movie Tr...

‘Bathtubs Over Broadway’ Trailer: Discovering the Hidden World of Sponsored Musicals

You may remember those bits on the Late Show With David Letterman, in which the host introduced obscure vinyl records for laughs in a recurring segment called “Dave’s Record Collection.” That segment actually stemmed from an hobby held by Late Show writer Steve Young, who in the mid-nineties became obsessed with the hidden world of industrial musicals, curating a vast collection of sponsored musicals that hawked everything from cars, to cereal, to — yes — bathtubs. Now his obsession becomes a f...

It’s showtime! With a Beetlejuice musical out, it was only a matter of time before a documentary dove into the making of the Tim Burton cult classic.

Sacha Baron Cohen Won’t Make ‘Who Is America?’ Season 2

After stirring up all sorts of controversy and creating problems for plenty of politicians and pundits, Sacha Baron Cohen‘s comedy documentary series Who Is America? will not be returning for a second season. No, the show hasn’t been canceled, but instead, Cohen simply doesn’t see a way to easily continue the show and deliver the same kind of shock and hilarity.

‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ Review: Humanity Leaps Off the Screen in Peter Jackson’s Vivid World War I Documentary

When I was handed a pair of 3D glasses to watch They Shall Not Grow Old, I rolled my eyes. How could a tired theatrical gimmick possibly add anything to a documentary about World War I? But 15 minutes into Peter Jackson’s vivid documentary, the glasses stopped digging into the sides of my head and instead helped transport me into the dazzling, achingly human archival footage that the Oscar-winning director so brilliantly restored. Culled together from 2,700 hours of faded footage shot firsth...

‘Fyre’ Trailer: Netflix Takes You Inside the Greatest Party that Never Happened, The Fyre Festival

The Fyre Festival was sold as a luxury music festival hosted on a private island where guests could live like rock stars – for a hefty price. Once attendees arrived, however, chaos reigned. Instead of fancy villas and gourmet meals, they were greeted with tents and – perhaps worst of all – cheese sandwiches. A scam was afoot, and lawsuits followed. Netflix will take viewers inside the disastrous non-festival with the new documentary Fyre, hitting the streaming service in January. Watch the Fyre...
