    ‘Lost In Space’ Netflix Date Announcement Trailer (Video)

    One of the hallmarks of 1960s scifi TV, Lost in Space already came back in the 90s with (and I’m not going to look this up), I want to say Matt LeBlanc? But now it’s coming back again, to Netflix no less, and a trailer announcing the date of release has recently hit the internet. And it […]

    ‘The Push': Mentalist Derren Brown Will Drive a Man to Murder (Trailer)

    If you’re reading this from the United States, there’s an unfortunate chance that you might not be familiar with the work of mentalist Derren Brown. He’s popular and prolific in the UK, and now it seems he’s making his belated American television debut for Netflix, in a special called The Push.  Brown’s MO is basically demonstrating the […]

    ‘Cobra Kai': ‘Karate Kid’ Sequel Series Gets Trailer (Video)

    What happens when a Karate Kid becomes … a Karate Man? That is the easy tagline that appears to be absent from promotional materials for Cobra Kai, an upcoming YouTube Red original series that brings back Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso more than 30 years after their life-defining duel in the original Karate Kid. A few days back, […]

  • ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ Live-Action Adaptation Gets Trailer (Video)

    ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ Live-Action Adaptation Gets Trailer (Video)

    Netflix appears to be carving a niche for itself – one of many niches, really – as a home for live-action adaptations of popular anime adaptations. Last year Netflix released a live-action Death Note, and today they released a trailer for an upcoming live action version of Fullmetal Alchemist.  I’m not an anime guy, so I can’t […]

    ‘Incredibles 2′ Olympics Sneak Peek (Video)

    Another day, another upcoming computer animated film gets a teaser to coincide with the Winter Olympics in Pyongyang. But this one is a lot more substantial, and, frankly, a lot more intrinsically valuable, than the previous one. This one is for Incredibles 2, the hotly anticipated sequel to The Incredibles that’s been 14 years in the making. The Incredibles […]

  • ‘Batman Ninja’ English Language Trailer (Video)

    ‘Batman Ninja’ English Language Trailer (Video)

    Late last year, I jumped the gun somewhat and told my presumably mostly English-reading readership about a trailer for an animated film entitled Batman Ninja, with the caveat that an English language version was hopefully on the way. Now, thankfully, we do indeed have an English dubbed trailer, as well as an official plot synopsis from […]

    ’41x': A Short Film About Lawn Mower Racing (Video)

    The Winter Olympics are currently happening in Pyongyang, which means that people all over the world are entranced by sports they probably don’t give much thought to outside of the Olympics: The luge, speed skating, snowboarding, curling. But there’s another obscure sport, not yet recognized by either of the Olympic committees, that is just as […]

  • ‘Chris Rock: Tambourine’ Netflix Date Announcement (Video)

    ‘Chris Rock: Tambourine’ Netflix Date Announcement (Video)

    It’s been a good decade since Chris Rock’s last stand-up special, but his reputation as one of the greatest comics of all time has remained secure. How secure? So secure, in fact, that he can get away with releasing a teaser for his upcoming Netflix special that not only doesn’t contain any jokes, but doesn’t […]
