Netflix Is Planning A Roald Dahl Extended Universe

By now, you probably know the drill. These days, there are two main priorities that most major studios seem to have spent the last several years zeroing in on: streaming services and shared universes. Netflix has one of those aspects all wrapped up and taken care of, obviously, but the streamer hasn't quite managed to find its niche regarding properties under its ownership that could naturally expand to multiple platforms, mediums, and -- most importantly for Netflix -- profit streams.Well, that...

Legends Of Tomorrow Season 7 Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)CW shows have a tendency to come with certain preconceptions attached to them, some of which aren't entirely unfair ... but nonetheless don't tell the full picture. "Legends of Tomorrow" probably most fits the bill (although I'd argue that "Riverdale" is in on its own joke more than it gets credit for!) as a CW show that certainl...

The Creepy CGI Rugrats Revival Is Returning For Season 2 Whether You Like It Or Not

Paramount+ won't let the "Rugrats'' die. After bringing the classic Nickelodeon series back, they decided to make it 100% more haunting by turning our favorite childhood cartoon into a harrowing CGI series that has officially been granted a second season. I mean, maybe I'm stuck in the tar pit that is the weird side of YouTube, but don't these stills remind you of those incredibly off-putting made-in-Blender videos?Honestly though, who's idea was it to take the show's charmingly off-kilter minim...

This Much Is True by Miriam Margolyes review – a wickedly honest memoir

With her naughty stories and cutting remarks, the comic actor spares no blushes – but her account is poignant tooI’m quite sure you picked up this book hoping I’d make you laugh,” Miriam Margolyes writes in her memoir, This Much Is True. She more than delivered. When I was reading it this book on a train, a stranger asked if I was OK because I was crying with laughter at Margolyes’s description of her interview to study English literature at Oxford (“‘Do you like Milton?’ the tutor barked. I did...

Midnight Mass Creator Mike Flanagan Warns Haunting Fans Not To Look For Hidden Ghosts

The upcoming Netflix miniseries "Midnight Mass" comes from Mike Flanagan, the terrifying mind that gifted us "The Haunting of Hill House" and "The Haunting of Bly Manor." Fans of the Haunting anthology series are likely anticipating hidden ghosts in Flanagan's latest, as the series infamously hid its scares in the background, waiting for viewers to catch them in the corner of their eye. But Flanagan's mind contains multitudes — not every scare is the same. For that reason, he's made a point of w...

Kathryn Hahn Has Been Cast As Joan Rivers In Showtime's The Comeback Girl

Comedy legend Joan Rivers lived a life that constantly defied expectations and traditions, resulting in her ceiling-smashing rise as a prominent and successful woman in a business that hardly seemed willing to give her time or space. In that light, it's always been of the utmost importance that any fictionalized retelling of Rivers' life would only be attempted with an actor who can similarly rise to the occasion and embody an icon who refused to be easily defined. So, who else but "WandaVision"...

Boba Fett's 10 Best Comic Appearances Ranked

Boba Fett is the most fearsome bounty hunter in the "Star Wars" universe. Although he has a notorious reputation, Fett doesn't see a lot of action in the original trilogy -- he might be the only bounty hunter who fulfills Darth Vader's mission in "The Empire Strikes Back," but Fett is quickly dispatched in "Return of the Jedi" when a disoriented Han Solo sets off his jetpack, sending him flying into the Sarlacc Pit.While the upcoming Disney+ series "The Book of Boba Fett" will expand on the char...

How Star Wars: Visions Embraces And Reinvents The Franchise's Long-Held Values [Interview]

When "Star Wars: A New Hope" released in 1977, audiences were blown away by the original adventure tale. And it is original, in as much as any story idea is. But the American space opera has always had the cinema of Akira Kurosawa coursing through its veins. In crafting his epic, George Lucas leaned heavily on Kurosawa's 1958 samurai picture "The Hidden Fortress," down to mimicked lensing and particular shots. Now, decades, several sequels, three prequels, and a ton of spinoffs and merchandising...

Comic Book Legend Harley Quinn Was Inspired By A Dream – In A Soap Opera

Margot Robbie has now portrayed beloved comic book character Harley Quinn in DC films like "Suicide Squad," "Birds of Prey," and "The Suicide Squad," and she is so fond of playing the role that we probably haven't seen the last of the Oscar-nominated actress in the part. You may have seen all of those films, but do you know the story of how "Batman: The Animated Series" writer Paul Dini cooked up the idea for Harley Quinn in the first place? Settle in, puddin', and I'll regale you with the bizar...

Will There Be A Ratched Season 2? Here's What We Know

(Welcome to Will There Be Another Season?, a series where we answer that question and explore what comes next.)"Ratched" was released by Netflix in the fall of 2020. Many of us were still stuck inside looking for stuff to binge and Ryan Murphy came to the rescue. Here we are, one year later, and there is no second season.

12 Shows Like Ted Lasso You'll Definitely Want To Watch

"Believe." That's the core tenet of "Ted Lasso," the instruction that informs both its titular character and the team who writes him into existence. If Ted Lasso believes, so too will his audience. Maybe they'll believe in themselves. Maybe they'll come to believe that football is life (and also death), or that deep grief can be lived with. Belief is what made "Ted Lasso" a word-of-mouth hit, and belief is, ironically, why the discourse turned against it -- because, if you haven't heard, despite...

While the mere concept might immediately turn off those who couldn't care less about anime, as both a longtime "Star Wars" fan and someone who doesn't have a great appreciation for this particular animation style, I can tell you that "Star Wars: Visions" is still worth watching for the masterful visuals, the wild twis...

Star Wars: Visions Review: A Refreshing And Gorgeous Spin On A Galaxy Far, Far Away

Westerners love to take on Asian properties and regurgitate them (which often means dumbing down) for American crowds, but "Star Wars: Visions" innately understands the Kurosawa influence on George Lucas and the stories he tells. So this collection of anime shorts set in the "Star Wars" universe is more of a return to roots than a regurgitation. Exclusive to Disney+, "Star Wars: Visions" unrolls over nine standalone episodes. The anthology is produced by Lucasfilm Animation and joins hands with ...

The Problem With Jon Stewart Trailer: Jon Stewart Is Back On TV, Baby

Jon Stewart is back, but with a new beard and, quite possibly, a worst world to dissect. Six years ago the famed comedian left his post at "The Daily Show" — impeccable timing on his part, given the painful lows of 2016. Sans some occasional guest appearances on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and the Trevor Noah-hosted "Daily Show," Stewart spent years avoiding the spotlight. But turns out he couldn't stay away for very long. Jon Stewart now returns as the creator and host of "The Problem ...

Foundation Featurette Ponders How The Hell You Even Adapt Those Books

When "Foundation" hits Apple TV+ on September 24, it will be the first screen adaptation of Isaac Asimov's Hugo Award-winning book series. Like Frank Herbert's "Dune," which "Foundation" influenced and which is now a major motion picture from Warner Bros., Asimov's novels were once considered unfilmable. A new featurette for "Foundation" has the show's co-creator, David S. Goyer, talking up the books as "the greatest science fiction work of all time" and explaining his approach to adapting them....
