The Get Down is a lavish production and looks like one, but even fans of Baz Luhrmann‘s opulent style may be surprised to learn just how expensive it is. A new report claims the 1970s hip-hop drama costs something like $16 million per episode, meaning the entire 12-episode first season will come out to a total of around $190 million.

2014’s Selma launched Ava DuVernay to a whole new level of fame and acclaim, but the filmmaker hasn’t been content to rest on her laurels. For the past couple of years she’s kept mostly off the radar, plugging away at her next few projects. This fall, we finally get to see two of them come to fruition. One is the OWN drama Queen Sugar, which debuted earlier this month to high praise. The other is The 13th, a documentary about mass incarceration in the United States.
The title refers to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery “except as a punishment for crime.” The film chronicles the path from the 13th Amendment to our modern-day criminal justice system. The 13th trailer opens with a shocking statistic — that nearly 1 out of 4 prisoners in the world are locked up in the U.S. — and promises a film that looks at how, exactly, we got here. Watch The 13th trailer below. Read More »

I haven’t subscribed to the new CBS All Access streaming platform yet, but I will. In fact, I know exactly when I will give them my credit card number: in January 2017, when Star Trek: Discovery premieres and becomes available exclusively through this new service. Yes, CBS – you got me hook, line, and sinker with this dastardly plan of yours and I know I’m not alone.
However, everyone now has a second option for when they sign up for CBS All Access to try out the new Star Trek show. In addition to the regular plan, CBS has announced a slightly more expensive plan that will allow you to use the service without advertisements. Mostly.
While next month will see a number of great movies arriving on Netflix, it will also see more than a few must-see films vanish. Here are the movies leaving Netflix in September 2016 that you need to catch before they’re gone.
