    ‘The Outsider': Jared Leto is in the Yakuza Now (Trailer)

    Say what you will about Jared Leto, but he’s clearly a guy who doesn’t care about barging into spaces where he isn’t wanted. His latest gate crash is into arguably the most exclusive community in global organized crime: The yakuza. That’s the long and short of what the upcoming Netflix drama The Outsider is all about, but […]

    ‘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 […]

    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 […]

    ‘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 […]

    ‘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 […]

  • ‘The Week Of': New Adam Sandler/Chris Rock from Netflix (Teaser)

    ‘The Week Of': New Adam Sandler/Chris Rock from Netflix (Teaser)

    Adam Sandler gets a bad rap these days, and many scoffed when Netflix went all in on the Sandler business with a four-film contract. The first was the comedy western The Ridiculous Six, but the second movie seems to be a more sophisticated affair, the directorial debut of comedian Robert Smigel. It’s called The Week Of.  The […]

    ‘Mute': Duncan Jones’ Futuristic Thriller for Netflix (Trailer)

    There must be something floating around in the cultural air these days to make people interested in some nebulous cyberpunk future. First there was Blade Runner 2049, then we have the upcoming Netflix series Altered Carbon, and now there’s Mute, a movie by Duncan Jones (director, Netflix is eager to remind us all, of Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft) that appears to fit […]

    ‘A Futile and Stupid Gesture’ Out Now on Netflix (Trailer)

    There’s a good chance you don’t know the name of the late comedy legend Doug Kenney. But before his untimely death, Kenney was the auteur behind National Lampoon magazine, which in turn gave birth to an entire generation of film comedy, from the original cast of Saturday Night Live to National Lampoon’s Animal House. Now, he’s getting the biopic treatment […]
