Amazon Studios' original series productions range from Amy Sherman-Palladino's award-winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to Philip K. Dick's Man in the High Castle.
On the film side, Amazon Studios produces and acquires original movies for theatrical release and early window distribution exclusively for their Amazon Prime members. At the 2017 Academy Awards, Amazon Studios became the first streaming service to win Oscars for Manchester by the Sea.
Bleeding Cool follows Amazon Studios' efforts closely, with their upcoming duo classic fantasy series, Lord of the Rings (based on a young Aragorn), and Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, you can keep abreast of the latest in news, rumors, and happenings right here.
Heading into this weekend's season finale of Amazon Prime's The Boys, things have gotten explosively bloody, with Homelander (Antony Starr) and Stormfront (Aya Cash) now having their little "nuclear (bomb) family" together… but an unstable Homelander appears to be unraveling even further (if that's possible). Meanwhile, Butcher (Karl Urban) seems pretty chipper like he's a […]
At this year's New York Comic Con-Metaverse, fans of Amazon Prime's The Expanse were the recipients of a righteous amount of good news. Looks like the future of The Belt will be determined on December 16th, when the sci-fi drama returns for a fifth season. And just like it's programming pal The Boys, the episodes […]
After a steady stream of new intel and first-looks at Amazon Prime's upcoming adult animated series adaptation of his and co-creator Cory Walker's Invincible, Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) continued keeping his promise to keep fans up-to-date on the project at this year's New York Comic Con-Metaverse on Thursday. Not looking to waste any time, Kirkman […]
Considering what we had been hearing lately from writer Gennifer Hutchison (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) and series star Morfydd Clark combined with the series starting to get the production wheels spinning again, we were expecting nothing but good things from Amazon Prime's upcoming The Lord of the Rings prequel series. Well, let's just say this […]
If there was ever an episode in need of a promo to offer us some inkling of where everything's going, it's Amazon Prime's The Boys. The Vought hearing got bloody explosive, and we could not be more literal about our wording if we tried. Homelander (Antony Starr) and Stormfront (Aya Cash) have their little "nuclear […]
So the last time we checked in with The Boys series showrunner and EP Eric Kripke, he was trying to hook us up with some porn. Okay, maybe we should clarify that a bit. In the second season's penultimate episode (!!!) "Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker," there's a scene between Lamplighter (Shawn Ashmore) and Hughie (Jack Quaid) […]
When we think about how much adult comics grew in acceptance over the past few decades, one of the IPs we have to thank is Kick-Ass. While there are two films based on the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr comic in 2010 and 2013, there's no reason why it couldn't be explored again on […]
Welcome back to another serving of BCTV Sunday Slices, where I take a look at the past week in BCTV's coverage to offer a thought or two on the topic. Once again, the views expressed here are my own and don't necessarily reflect on the rest of the fine folks at Bleeding Cool. Which is […]
For those of you who haven't seen the penultimate episode of the second season of Amazon Prime's The Boys, we promise to tread carefully and avoid any "MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!" situations. Suffice it to say that "Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker" was a pretty explosive outing that left us scratching our heads over what's next for […]
So the last time we checked in with The Walking Dead star (and hopefully future cast member) Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he was a guest on Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys and waxing poetically about Love Sausage (Andrew Jackson). But Morgan was far from done with being a helluva' impressive guest on the Aisha Tyler-hosted Amazon […]
Some good news for fans of Amazon Prime's upcoming "The Lord of the Rings" series and Netflix's live-action series take on popular anime Cowboy Bebop. Deadline Hollywood reports that the "LotR" prequel has resumed filming (which was teased on social media over the past few weeks), and that Netflix's John Cho-starring series will restart production […]
So that happened. And by "that," we mean Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso) being nearly strangled to death by an enormous, prehensile penis. Welcome to the second season of Amazon Prime's The Boys, which continues to not only find new ways to out shock itself with each episode while also delivering one-two combinations of tension, heartbreak, […]
After DC FanDome and mulling over the new concept behind Superman & Lois as working parents struggling to balance their professional and personal lives. I started thinking of parenting in pop culture and how it is often represented in terms of our heroes. Spoiler? It is not always a good thing. It must be tough […]
Okay, we need to get that whole thing about spoilers out of the way first, because there's no way to discuss what we're about to discuss without spilling some serious intel on this weekend's episode of Amazon Prime's The Boys." So if you haven't seen "The Bloody Doors Off" yet, now would be a good […]
Looks like Amazon Prime was so upset with Eric Kripke's weekly release schedule for The Boys that they punished him with a spinoff series. That's right, coming off the international success of the second season, the streaming service has given a fast-track series order for a superhero college-based series (no title announced) written The Boys […]
In less than twenty-four hours, the world of Utopia will unleash its secrets as Amazon Prime and Gillian Flynn's fantasy-conspiracy-action-thriller-adventure series (trust us, all of those and more are accurate descriptors). Having been treated to a "red band" trailer (which gave us a completely different impression of the series) as well as a look at the […]
During the summer's Comic-Con@Home, Amazon Prime offered viewers their first teaser look at Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End) upcoming horror-comedy series Truth Seekers. Directed by Jim Field Smith (Criminal), and written by Pegg, Frost, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz, the series focuses on a team of questionable […]
With "The Wheel of Time on Amazon Prime Book Club" closing up shop two weeks ago, we had convinced ourselves that our Wednesdays would be lacking in casting news and production updates moving forward. Thankfully, series star Rosamund Pike understood our pain and had a few things to share about the streaming service's upcoming adaptation […]
Last weekend's episode of Amazon Prime's The Boys felt like it was a breakthrough in a way for Butcher (Karl Urban), who got a hard lesson in "family" when Hughie (Jack Quaid) and Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso) go searching for him- only for the rescuers and rescuees to find themselves in need of some rescuing […]
It's pretty safe to say (and we don't think we're treading into MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! territory) that Homelander (Antony Starr) has some serious issues that are coming dangerously close to turning us off to milk altogether. Add to that his psychotic, "vengeful messiah" complex, how he's turning into a supes version of "Mommy Dearest", and […]
