  • ‘Maniac’ Starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone (Teaser)

    ‘Maniac’ Starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone (Teaser)

    Netflix seems to have some sort of viewer data indicating that various demographic quadrants are interested in strange, mysterious stuff. First we had the teaser for Roma, and now we have an equally strange teaser for Maniac, an upcoming limited series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone. Unlike Roma, however, Netflix has released a rather extensive synopsis for the […]

  • ‘Castlevania’ Season 2 Coming in October (Trailer)

    ‘Castlevania’ Season 2 Coming in October (Trailer)

    It’s been about a year since the short first season of Castlevania, an animated series based on the video game franchise of the same name, made its bloody way to Netflix. It ended on a cliffhanger, with the evil Dracula still very much at large, and Trevor Belmont still on his way to bringing him down […]

  • ‘Roma': Upcoming Alfonso Cuarón Film Gets Mysterious Teaser (Video)

    ‘Roma': Upcoming Alfonso Cuarón Film Gets Mysterious Teaser (Video)

    Filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón’s last movie, Gravity, was basically an old-fashioned star vehicle, with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney drawing crowds into a claustrophobic chamber piece about the terror of space. His next movie doesn’t have any stars or a nifty scifi hook, so Netflix is going the mysterious route in advertising Roma in advance of its premiere on […]

  • ‘Disenchantment’ from ‘Simpsons’ Creator Matt Groening (Trailer)

    ‘Disenchantment’ from ‘Simpsons’ Creator Matt Groening (Trailer)

    Not all the trailers to come to us from Comic-Con are for superhero movies. Take Disenchantment, for example, an upcoming animated Netflix series from none other than Matt Groening, who has a pretty good track record between The Simpsons and Futurama.  For this new series, he’s taking on the fantasy genre, and the voice cast includes Abbi Jacobson of Broad City and […]

  • ‘Extinction': Michael Peña vs Alien Invaders (Trailer)

    ‘Extinction': Michael Peña vs Alien Invaders (Trailer)

    Michael Peña is (I’m assuming here) one of the highlights of Ant-Man and The Wasp now in theaters, and now he’s making a jump into Netflix leading man, with Extinction. Here’s what it’s all about, as per the film’s official synopsis: “A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the […]

  • ‘Ghoul': Netflix’s Indian Horror Series Gets Official Trailer (Video)

    ‘Ghoul': Netflix’s Indian Horror Series Gets Official Trailer (Video)

    India is not well known for horror films or TV series, at least not in North America, but Netflix is getting into the Indian horror game with a new original series. It’s called Ghoul, and apparently bears no relation to the Boris Karloff film of the same name. Instead, as per the series’ official synopsis: “From […]

  • ‘Ozark’ Season 2 Date Announcement Trailer (Video)

    ‘Ozark’ Season 2 Date Announcement Trailer (Video)

    I’ve never seen the Netflix original series Ozark, but I recall when the trailer for it came out I made fun of it pretty bad for ripping off Breaking Bad. But it seems like Jason Bateman has been having kind of a tough time lately, so I’ll lay off the jokes for the occasion of the new Ozark season 2 date […]

  • ‘Derren Brown: Miracle’ Coming to Netflix (Trailer)

    ‘Derren Brown: Miracle’ Coming to Netflix (Trailer)

    Please excuse the language I’m about to use, but Derren Brown is perhaps the greatest shit-starter in all of history. He recently made his American debut with The Push, in which he successfully convinced an innocent person to push somebody off of a roof. Now, he’s coming back to Netflix with Derren Brown: Miracle, which he has […]

  • Netflix Title Request Feature Revealed

    Netflix Title Request Feature Revealed

    We live in something of a golden age of media availability, but there’s still no avoiding the feeling of really wanting to see a movie or TV show and not being able to find it anywhere online. Your local library might prove a valuable resource on these occasions, but now you have yet another option, […]

  • ‘Because You Watched’ Pop-Up Exhibit from Netflix

    ‘Because You Watched’ Pop-Up Exhibit from Netflix

    Netflix is getting into the comic book business, but their quest for absolute cultural domination doesn’t end there. The streaming service also has a pop-up exhibit coming to the Raleigh Studios Hollywood gallery next month, and it gets its title from one of the linchpin phrases of the Netflix experience: Because You Watched. Here’s what it’s all […]
