  1. With the Vikander sequel now dead, Amazon have Phoebe Waller-Bridge making a TV show. Writing scripts and exec producing, not starring. Not as far as casting a new Lara yet. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/tomb-raider-tv-show-amazon-phoebe-waller-bridge-1235311582/
  2. Let's have 'em, the infuriating bits in movies and TV shows that really f**k you off. Those little moments where the suspension of disbelief comes crashing to the floor, the plot goes to crap, there's an acting malfunction, the VFX are a letdown, or that "clever" twist makes you feel like you've been kicked in the sensitives by Mister Deus ex Machina. Here's one to start things off. It sprang to mind unbidden for some reason today, but it annoyed me even though it was quite a while since I last watched the movie it's from... Tomorrow Never Dies - the helicopter chase. I appreciate that Bond movies stretch the limits, but surely at least one person in the production team must've raised the point that this is just f**king stupid? After a motorcycle chase through building seemingly made of matchsticks, Bond and Wai-Lin are pursued by a helicopterbut get stuck in a crowd of pedestrians who hamper their progress. The pilot of the helicopter is laden with bad guys armed with fully automatic weapons decides the best option is to tilt the helicopter forward in a physics-defying maneouvre to attempt to chop up the heroes (and presumably many pedestrians) with the spinning rotors. Instead of instantly pitching the aircraft into the floor, shattering the rotor-blades, and dumping the crew to the ground in a fireball, the helicopter moves slowly forward at an impossible angle. But bond escapes into (Oh no!) a dead end. Forced back out into the street he sees the helicopter still waiting, still hovering at a bizarre angle, unmoving thanks, I assume, to some sort of anti-gravity tech that evil baddie Elliot Carver must have invented. Bond and Wai-Lin do a stunt, sliding under the rotors and throwing some handy bunting up into the helicopter tail rotor causing it to lose control, crash into a building, and explode. It disgusts me (although it's redeemed slightly by the brief cut at the end where you can see the helicopter is filled with manequins before it blows up). Let 'em roll...
  3. New to Apple TV+ on 17 February. Described as sci-fi dramedy. Set in a sort of 50s retro future world, with some of the main characters being door to door salesmen selling timeshares on the moon. Stars Billy Crudup, Hank Azaria, Alison Pill and Haneefah Wood. The usual Apple release format of 3 episodes on day 1, then weekly episodes.
  4. New 8-episode AMC show starring Bob Odenkirk coming in March. Odenkirk plays an English department chairman in an underfunded college in the Pennsylvania rust belt. And he's having a mid-life crisis. Also features Mireille Enos, Oscar Nunez, Tom Bower, Kyle Maclachlan and Chris Diamantopoulos. Adapted from the novel "Straight Man". https://deadline.com/2023/01/lucky-hank-amc-reveals-debut-date-for-next-bob-odenkirk-starrer-1235215608/
  5. Paramount+ and Rawson Marshall Thurber are doing an 8-episode D&D show. It'll be produced by Paramount Pictures and eOne, the same pairing producing the D&D movie. Thurber is writing and directing the first episode. There's not yet details on plot, but presumably in the same world as the movie. Don't know if there will be a more direct connection. https://deadline.com/2023/01/dungeons-and-dragons-live-action-series-paramount-plus-rawson-marshall-thurber-eone-paramount-pictures-1235215486/
  6. A 5-part limited series about Watergate coming to HBO in March. Stars Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux as E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy, Watergate masterminds who ended up toppling the Presidency they were trying to protect. Other cast include Lena Headey (Dorothy Hunt), Judy Greer (Fran Liddy), Domhnall Gleeson (John Dean), Toby Huss (James McCord), Ike Barinholtz (Jeb Magruder), Kathleen Turner (Dita Beard), Kim Coates (Frank Sturgis), Yul Vazquez (Bernard “Macho” Barker), Alexis Valdés (Felipe De Diego), Nelson Ascencio (Virgilio “Villo” Gonzalez), Tony Plana (Eugenio “Muscolito” Martinez), Zoe Levin (Lisa Hunt), Liam James (Saint John Hunt), Kiernan Shipka (Kevan Hunt), Tre Ryder (David Hunt), David Krumholtz (William O. Bittman), F. Murray Abraham (Judge Sirica), Rich Sommer (Egil “Bud” Krogh), and John Carroll Lynch (John Mitchell). https://deadline.com/video/white-house-plumbers-trailer-woody-harrelson-amp-justin-theroux-hbos-watergate-limited-series/
  7. Sony TV are to bring The Destroyer book series to TV. Previously on screen as the Remo Williams movie in 1985. There's over 150 books for them to draw from. It's about a cop who was framed and sentenced to death. But that was a cover so the government could fake his death and train him as an assassin for their secret organisation, CURE. It's being adapted by Gordon Smith, who was an exec producer on Better Call Saul. https://deadline.com/2022/12/the-destroyer-series-adaptation-1235192845/
  8. Netflix are to release this on 1 January. It's 8 episodes and the non-linear aspect is that it doesn't matter what order you watch them in and different people will be served different orders. Might be interesting to see how that works in reality. The idea came from when $70bn of bonds went missing during Hurricane Sandy. The creator thought "What if it was actually a heist using the storm for cover". Stars Giancarlo Esposito, Rufus Sewell, Paz Vega, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, Niousha Noor, Jordan Mendoza, Soojeong Son and Hemky Madera.
  9. Remember that time Netflix made a rubbish live-action Death Note? Now Netflix are making a live-action Death Note again. This one is from the Duffer Brothers company, though I don't know if they're directing. https://deadline.com/2022/10/death-note-halia-abdel-meguid-series-adaptation-manga-netflix-duffer-bros-1235151144/
  10. Mike Flanagan hasn't done a show about bombing down the Bayshore Route in Tokyo in cars that crashed through Halfords first. It's about a group of terminally ill young adults in a hospice who gather at midnight to tell scary stories. And make a pact that when the first dies, they communicate with others from beyond the grave. And when the first does die, strange things begin happening. Starts today. It's also made it into the Guinness Records for the most jump scares in a single episode. Flanagan actually hates jump scares, but decided to deliberately go over the top for those people who clamour for them and try to make them meaningless. https://deadline.com/2022/10/the-midnight-club-now-guiness-world-records-holder-1235137919/
  11. Apple are doing a Time Bandits show. It's been known for a while that it's being worked on, but now it's officially greenlit. Taiki Waititi as executive producer and directing the first 2 (of 10) episodes. Lisa Kudrow as one of the stars. Other cast include Kal-El Tuck (Unseeing Evil), Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up), Tadhg Murphy (Conversations With Friends), Roger Jean Nsengiyumva (You Don’t Know Me), Rune Temte (Eddie the Eagle), Kiera Thompson (Martyrs Lane) and Rachel House (Heartbreak High). https://deadline.com/2022/09/time-bandits-lisa-kudrow-lead-cast-taika-waititi-apple-series-1235129518/
  12. There's been a couple of attempts to bring it to TV before, but this time, with HBO behind it, it might actually happen. Written by William Bridges, who wrote a couple of Black Mirror episodes (USS Callister and Shut Up and Dance) and directed by Yann Demange ('71, Top Boy, Lovecraft Country). https://deadline.com/2022/09/scanners-hbo-series-1235123991/
  13. It's Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, who some don't get on with, so I thought I'd mention that first. And don't ask me what's going on with that title. Coming to Netflix on 21 September. Evan Peters stars as Dahmer. Largely told from the victims perspective and goes into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed him to go on for so long. https://deadline.com/video/monster-trailer-evan-peters-jeffrey-dahmer-ryan-murphys-netflix-series/
  14. Based on a graphic novel of the same name. About a Chinese-American high schooler who ends up involved in a battle between mythological Chinese gods, particularly Sun Wukong, The Monkey King. Cast includes Michelle Yeoh, Daniel Wu, Poppy Liu and Chin Han. 8 episodes coming to Disney+ next year.
  15. Pixar's first long-form TV show, for Disney+. Will Forte stars as Coach Dan, coach of a co-ed middle school softball team, in the week leading up to their championship game. https://deadline.com/2022/09/will-forte-win-or-lose-pixar-1235113669/
  16. A new show from Steve Levitan (Modern Family) coming to Hulu (so probably Disney+ here) about a sitcom from the 2000s being rebooted. Paul Reiser as the original show's creator, but he's old-school and not up to speed on things like diversity and inclusivity for the reboot. Also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Johnny Knoxville, Judy Greer, Rachel Bloom, Calum Worthy and Krista Marie Yu. Starts on Hulu on 20 September. https://deadline.com/2022/08/reboot-hulu-drops-trailer-for-steve-levitans-show-within-a-show-1235098460/
  17. Armando Iannucci & Sam Mendes are doing a pilot for HBO about superhero movie making. https://deadline.com/2022/08/armando-iannucci-sam-mendes-hbo-comedy-pilot-the-franchise-1235087329/
  18. AMC are bringing back Max Headroom. The drama version from the US rather than the C4 VJ version. Matt Frewer is returning as Max and Halt and Catch Fire co-creator Christopher Cantwell is writing and showrunning. So maybe there's a chance.
  19. NWR has a 6-episode show coming to Netflix. Made back home in Denmark. It's a "neon-drenched noir", for a change. Production has already wrapped and it'll be out later this year. And it sounds like we can expect more from him and Netflix.
  20. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/wonder-man-marvel-disney-1235166956/ Wonder Man getting a TV show. Shang-Chi's Destin Daniel Cretton is involved and probably directing at least 1 episode. Head writer is Andrew Guest, from Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Community and he consulted on Hawkeye.
  21. Stallone show for Paramount+ with Terrance Winter writing and showrunning. Stallone is Dwight “The General” Manfredi, a New York mafia Capo. He gets out of prison after 25 years and his boss sends him to Tulsa, Oklahoma. He realises his "family" might not have his best interests in mind, so he forms a crew to build a new criminal empire in Tulsa. First 2 episodes on 13 November.
  22. Netflix are bringing the One Piece manga to life. Hopefully it fares better than Cowboy Bebop. There's a bunch of casting at the link, mostly names I don't think I know, plus Craig Fairbrass. They released a video showing a glimpse at some sets.
  23. Anyone been watching this? (Note, very different to the similarly titled BBC sitcom 'The Other One'!) Wikipedia blurb: I absolutely adored the first series a couple of years back and I am currently working through series 2. Kind of the sitcom sweet spot at 10 episodes per series x 25 mins which helps - it mercilessly lampoons internet pop culture and social media (and the twist at the end of series 1 is inspired) and it just seems to be getting funnier. It started out on Comedy Central and Channel 4 but has since moved to HBO Max, I'm not sure what this means for a UK release but I'd really recommend tracking it down.
  24. This one seems more kid focussed, coming to both Disney+ and Disney Jr. It's set in the High Republic era. About Younglings learning the ways of the Force. Coming in spring 2023.
  25. A second animated anthology of shorts. This one is stories about Jedi of the prequel era. I guess we'll get more of that Fisto grin. It's coming in autumn.
