ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is a student of the history of Television, remembering that 2019's "Platinum Age of Television" wouldn't be what it is today without some of the classic shows from the '70s and '80s. To prove his point and remind viewers that classic television is timeless, Kimmel is teaming with television icon […]
As premium cable, basic cable, and the day's newest streaming service continue to compete for and gobble up quality content left and right, it would be a pretty safe bet to say that we're living a new "golden age" of television. But even as we celebrate more programming choices across a wide range channels/services, it's […]

Following up on the release of the official trailer in early August that gave us a "big picure" view of what the series was about, Netflix has released a new teaser entitled 'Connection' for Maniac, the streaming service's new half-hour dramedy series from director Cary Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation, True Detective). Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) and Emma Stone (La-La Land) […]

When you're a show like Maniac where the main character can create whatever fantasy world he wants in his mind, you have to go into it expecting every unexpected possible. A slimmed-down Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) sporting long, braided hair in some kind form of pseudo-homage to Gary Oldman from True Romance […]

Previously under development with Shane Black, Your Next's Adam Wingard will helm the adaptation of the manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. THR reports the American version will […]
HBO's The Leftovers is certainly one of the tougher shows out there. Centering on a world in which 1% of its population suddenly and simultaneously disappeared, the characters are hard to empathize with, despite a premise that should generate immediate interest. It has a mystery, but that really isn't central to the reality the characters […]

Locks to return are star Justin Theroux and his on screen family Amy Brenneman, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, his love interest Carrie Coon and former priest Christopher Eccleston. […]
Kevin Feige has copped to the fact that Doctor Strange is part of Marvel Studio's phase 3 plans, alongside Ant Man. It wouldn't be crazy to think it could come along as early as April 2016.
Time to step up the swears, drop some semi-nudity and break out the CG "trip" FX.
I didn't like the first trailer for Your Highness. I don't like the second one either. You might love it, however, so here it is. I can't imagine the high-quality version at Apple will be any more convincing.
Very poor. I had been looking forward, just a little, to David Gordon Green's Your Highness but this trailer has done nothing but leave a very bad taste in my mouth. Some of the gags are literally just swearwords, another "funny bit" is people being scared and running for the edge of frame like Shaggy […]
