There’s a lot to love about Netflix. It’s an essentially endless library of shows and movies to choose from, all available to watch instantly with just the touch of a button. But there’s always been one big catch: there’s no getting around the fact that you need an internet connection. If you’re in a place with high-speed wifi, that’s not a problem. But if you want to catch up with Jessica Jones or Bojack Horseman on the plane? Or fighting with a crappy connection at your parents’ house? You’re out of luck.
Fortunately, that may not be the case for much longer. Netflix is reportedly working on a feature that would let subscribers download some programs to watch offline, and it could be ready to go by the end of the year. Read More »

It’s not chock full of new footage like the previous trailer was, but there are glimpses of some new shots, as well as the special features that will take you behind the scenes.

Netflix is producing so many original shows these days that it’s often hard to keep up, with much of their original programming falling through the cracks in the crowded television landscape. Sure, you may say you’ll eventually get around to watching Marco Polo or Bloodline, but let’s face it – no one on planet Earth has actually watched Marco Polo or Bloodline. I kid because I love. And because Netflix is richer than most small nations.
Then something like Stranger Things appears on the horizon and you realize “Oh, here’s a Netflix original series that I think I will actually get around to watching!” Only time will tell if this new show can match the success of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, but the first trailer leaves a strong impression, offering shades of Steven Spielberg and Stephen King and all of those adventurous genre films from the ’80s that somehow got away with PG ratings because the PG-13 hadn’t been invented yet.

There have been rumblings of a Justice League Dark movie in the works since as far back as 2012. Director Guillermo del Toro was once supposed to be behind the camera for an assembly of DC Comics characters such as Constantine, Swamp Thing, Jason Blood/The Demon, Madame Xanadu and Anton Arcane, but he ended up falling away from the project nearly a year ago. More recently, some possible casting and director contenders have emerged, but we haven’t heard anything since last fall.
Now fans waiting for a Justice League Dark movie can pass their time with a forthcoming straight-to-DVD animated movie that’s in the works according to the supplemental features on the forthcoming home video release of the animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke.
