Peaky Blinders on Netflix

Here we have news on two very different series coming from Netflix. First: the streaming service has picked up rights to the BBC series Peaky Blinders, which adds Tom Hardy to its second season roster this fall. We hadn’t known when we’d see the new season in the States, so it’s great to know that we can soon see Peaky Blinders on Netflix.

And then the company has also picked up rights to the ’80s kids property Popples, which will be developed as an animated series. More info on both is below. Read More »

Where Are They Now short film
Steve Cuts has created Where Are They Now?, a six minute animated short film which shows the sad lives of our favorite cartoon characters who are “facing reality long after their heyday prime.” The short starts off showing what has become of Roger Rabbit and his wife Jessica, but it also features many other cartoon characters from the 1970′s, 1980′s and 1990′s, including characters from He-man, Donald Duck, The Smurfs, Super Mario, Thundercats, Carebears and many more. The short is funny but also very sad — I’ve always wished we would see a Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel which would show us what became of all of our beloved childhood cartoon characters (but I never imagined it could have gotten this bad). Watch the Where Are They Now short film embedded after the jump.

As he stresses, “it’s not a clip, it’s not a trailer, it’s nothing from the actual movie, the voices are all temp.” But he describes it as “just something that kind of represents what we want to do,” so it still offers a pretty great idea of what he has in store for us. Watch the Popeye test footage after the jump.
