‘Lupin’ Trailer: The Gentleman Thief Gets His Own Live-Action Netflix Series

In 1905, French writer Maurice Leblanc created a character named Arsène Lupin, who embodies one of my favorite archetypes in all of storytelling: the gentleman thief. Since his creation, the suave, crafty Lupin has appeared in several short stories, books, comics, and movies over the years, and even inspired a grandson character, Lupin III, who was the subject of acclaimed animation director Hayao Miyazaki’s feature directorial debut and, more recently, a new CG animated film called Lupin III T...

‘Black Mirror’ Creator Charlie Brooker’s Mysterious 2020 Project Gets a Mysterious Teaser

This year has been such a shit-show that it makes episodes of Black Mirror look almost quaint by comparison. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker is aware of that, so rather than bring us a new season of Black Mirror he’s unleashing a new, mysterious mockumentary about the hell year that was 2020. Brooker just dropped a new teaser for the project, which may or may not be called Death to 2020. pic.twitter.com/AfQ5yMKW8l — Charlie Brooker (@charltonbrooker) December 3, 2020 At the end of N...

John Mulaney Says He Was Investigated by the Secret Service After An ‘SNL’ Joke

John Mulaney may look like a very tired tall child, but that didn’t stop the Secret Service from taking his jokes a little too seriously when the comedian appeared on Saturday Night Live back in February. During his monologue, a harmless joke about leap years and Julius Caesar put the comedian on the radar of the Secret Service, who interpreted his joke as a potential death threat against Donald Trump. It makes the latest backlash against the comedian — also relating to a poorly made SNL joke —...

‘Hawkeye’ Cast: Florence Pugh, Vera Farmiga, and More Will Appear; Hailee Steinfeld Confirmed

Just in case you were still waiting for confirmation, it looks like it’s official: Hailee Steinfeld is part of the Hawkeye cast. Steinfeld has been rumored to play Kate Bishop for a while now, but there’s been next to no confirmation. In fact, at one point, Steinfeld seemed to flat-out deny she was even appearing in the series. But the other day, Steinfeld was spotted on the Hawkeye set in character, acting alongside star Jeremy Renner. And now a new report from Variety confirms she’s part of t...

‘The Lord of the Rings’ TV Series Adds 20 More Actors to Its Sprawling Cast

The Lord of the Rings is becoming the one show to hire them all. The latest casting news from the Amazon Studios series based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy novels features a whopping 20 (!) actors who are joining the sprawling cast of the show. That joke that there are only five British actors and they’ve all worked together may have just been shattered by The Lord of the Rings TV series, which seemed to have hired so many Brits that they’ve had to tap into the well of New Zealand, Sri...

Discovery is the latest media company to launch a standalone streaming service — and the latest to adopt the simple naming strategy of just adding a plus sign — with discovery+, set to launch in the United States on January 4, 2021.

‘Blindspotting’ TV Show Finds Its Cast; Rafael Casal Reprising His Role From the Movie

The gentrification-themed comedy/drama Blindspotting was one of the best movies of 2018, and it’s been more than a year since we heard that a TV spin-off was in the works at Starz. Now the cast for the Blindspotting TV show has been locked in. We already knew the series would focus on Jasmine Cephas Jones‘ Ashley character from the movie, but now we know that Rafael Casal, who co-wrote and co-starred in the film, will be serving as the showrunner and will also reprise his role as Miles in a rec...

Melissa McCarthy Doesn’t Listen to Our Pleas, Re-teams With Ben Falcone for Netflix Series ‘God’s Favorite Idiot’

Melissa McCarthy: you’re one of the most talented actresses working today. But when you work with Ben Falcone, you’re comedic poison. The husband-wife duo’s collaborations have resulted in some real stinkers like Tammy, The Boss, and the recently released Superintelligence, all of which Falcone had directed and co-written with McCarthy, who starred in the films. And each new project has only delivered diminishing returns, each less funny and more insulting than the last. And now, McCarthy and F...

‘The Price Is Right’ is Getting a Whole Channel on Pluto TV with Classic Bob Barker Episodes

The Price Is Right is one of the most beloved long-running game shows in TV history. The series began back in 1956 with a much different format than the one today’s audiences are used to seeing. But the most famous version of The Price Is Right began in 1972 with host Bob Barker, and starting today, the free TV streaming service Pluto TV is offering an entire channel dedicated to The Price Is Right episodes hosted by Happy Gilmore’s most formidable opponent.

“Theft” Brings Some Shock and Awe to ‘His Dark Materials’ With the Help of Paddington Bear

His Dark Materials is only getting better with each episode of its second season, with the third episode, “Theft,” finally bringing an end to the sluggish witches vs. Magisterium plot and getting to the real action. And by real action, I mean Will and Lyra sitting down in a movie theater to watch Paddington. No, I don’t really mean that. But that scene is a pivotal example of how His Dark Materials is letting loose its dour, epic fantasy trappings to embrace some of the awe and whimsy that was ...

Baby Yoda’s Name Was Decided During ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 1, and Ahsoka Tano Was There When George Lucas Held Him

One of the biggest revelations to come out of last weekend’s episode of The Mandalorian was the real name of Baby Yoda. His name is Grogu, and executive producer Jon Favreau has known that since the first season, but it was fellow executive producer Dave Filoni who figured out how to finally reveal it with the debut of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano. Speaking of which, do you remember back when everyone was freaking out about Jon Favreau snapping a photo of Star Wars creator George Lucas holding...

David Lynch Netflix Series Might Start Production Next Year

David Lynch might be heading to Netflix. The acclaimed filmmaker has been a little tightlipped about what he’s doing next, but a report in Production Weekly reveals that Lynch is set to direct a new Netflix series with the working title Wisteria. There’s next to no information beyond that, and Netflix is declining to comment at the moment. But the prospect of something new from David Lynch is definitely grounds for excitement. After making Inland Empire in 2006, David Lynch took 11 years off...

Noah Hawley Says We Shouldn’t Expect His ‘Star Trek’ Movie or ‘Alien’ TV Series Anytime Soon (Or Maybe Ever)

At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out. Alien TV Series...

‘The Mandalorian’ May Take Place Before the Final Scene of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ – Here’s What That Means

Last weekend’s episode of The Mandalorian saw the debut of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano in the live-action Star Wars universe after becoming a fan favorite character from The Clone Wars. Ahsoka also had a hand in the plot of Star Wars Rebels as a Rebel informant under the codename “Fulcrum,” which resulted in an eventual face-off with her old master: Darth Vader. With Ahsoka Tano coming into the live-action Star Wars universe, fans have been wondering what that means for her past, including th...

‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 May Already Be Done with One of the New Characters

The Mandalorian season 2 has brought quite an assembly of characters into the story of the bounty hunter Din Djarin and Baby Yoda (who now has an actual name: Grogu). Just this past weekend, The Clone Wars favorite Ahsoka Tano made an appearance played by Rosario Dawson. Earlier this season, Katee Sackhoff brought her animated character Bo-Katan to life in live-action as well, and she brought two other Mandalorian warriors with her.

Amazon Has Canceled ‘Utopia’ After One Season

So much for Utopia. The Amazon series, an American remake of the British drama of the same name, came from Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn, and for a while, Flynn was working on the show with David Fincher over at HBO. HBO eventually passed on the project, though, and so did Fincher. But Flynn kept things going, taking the series to Amazon, who gave it a straight-to-series order. Unfortunately, the series failed to generate much buzz, and has now been canceled by Amazon after only one season. ...
