kong: skull island tv spot

In less than two months, a new King Kong movie with Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, Brie Larson, Shea Whigham, Tom Hiddleston, and Jason Mitchell comes out. Let’s hope the movie is as good as that sounds, and that it’s as good as it looks because Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ follow-up to The Kings of Summer looks like one big, intense popcorn movie. Did I mention Vogt-Robers film also stars John Ortiz (Togetherness)? He hasn’t been featured prominently in the marketing materials, like the Kong: Skull Island TV spots below, but he’s in it, which is another valid reason to want to see Samuel L. Jackson and a band of soldiers take on some giant monsters.

Below, watch the new Kong: Skull Island TV spot.

get out

The midnight secret screening at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival was probably the worst kept secret in the festival’s history: It was the premiere of Jordan Peele‘s directorial debut Get Out, a Blumhouse-produced horror movie that takes on the monster of racism in modern times. Imagine Meet The Parents mixed with The Stepford Wives. It’s smart, visceral, thrilling and, of course, funny.

arrested development season 5

There has been talk of Arrested Development season 5 since the day after season four debuted on Netflix in 2013, which means that we’ve been writing stories about how another batch of episodes is on the way for about four years now.

And maybe they were serious this time? Because a new story about the basic structure of a potential fifth season of the beloved comedy series has hit the internet and it makes enough sense to feel true.

Stranger Things Season 2

Man, Stranger Things really did come out of nowhere, huh? The Duffer brothers’ Amblin-esque, throwback ’80s science fiction series went from “another show on Netflix” to genuine cultural phenomenon in about three seconds flat, proving that nostalgia sells…especially when that nostalgia is in service of good storytelling and good characters and so on.

Naturally, a second season is on the way and series star David Harbour has shared some new details.
