Riz Ahmed seemed to be freaking everywhere in 2016, from The Night Of to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down any in 2017. He’s got a guest spot on Girls and a supporting role in Una, and he’ll be getting a lead role all to himself in City of Tiny Lights.
Ahmed stars as a down-on-his-luck private eye (is there any other kind in movies?) who gets caught up in a missing-persons case that dredges up some ghosts from his past. Billie Piper stars an ex-girlfriend with whom he has some complicated history. Pete Travis (Dredd) directed. Watch the City of Tiny Lights trailer below. Read More »

The very mysterious Twin Peaks revival has served up a very mysterious Twin Peaks teaser. As you might expect, this promo is less about revealing the story’s secrets and more about setting a certain tone and mood — as well as reminding you that yes, this is really happening. Kyle MacLachlan returns as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper as the familiar strains of Angelo Baldamenti‘s iconic theme song play in the background. Watch the Twin Peaks season 3 teaser below.

Take Archie, mash it up with Gossip Girl, and add a sprinkling of Twin Peaks, and you’ll probably end up with something like Riverdale, The CW’s new sexed-up murder mystery drama about suspiciously hot teenagers in a seemingly sleepy, actually quite creepy little town. As the show’s midseason premiere date approaches, The CW has unveiled a new Riverdale teaser trailer that sets up some of the major drama to come. See the new Riverdale teaser trailer below.

What if I told you that the latest teaser for Twin Peaks season 3, one of the most mysterious and anticipated television events in some time, dedicated most of its precious 30 seconds to series co-creator, director, and actor David Lynch eating a donut? If you don’t know the show at all, you’d raise an eyebrow and wonder what the hell is going on. If you are familiar with the series, even just a little bit, you’ll probably say, “Yeah, sounds about right.”

Netflix has announced a new television series from Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij called The OA. I was a huge fan of their films Sound of My Voice and The East. In fact, Sound of my Voice was supposed to be the start of a digital series but instead became a film. I’m excited to see what they can do with a longer storytelling format.
Along with the announcement of this new series, which airs on Netflix this Friday, they have released a trailer. Watch The OA trailer now after the jump and find out more about this new show.

Note: With Nocturnal Animals out this weekend, we’re re-running our review from TIFF.
There’s a lot to admire about Nocturnal Animals, the second feature from Tom Ford. The narrative is actually two narratives, beautifully braided together by Ford and brought to life by Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal. It’s pretentious pulp, in a good way — engaging to watch and pretty to behold. But Nocturnal Animals seems to be aiming for profundity, and there it falls short. It’s trying to say something, but what isn’t exactly clear. Read More »

Iron Man may be Robert Downey Jr.‘s most famous role, but you may recall that it’s not his only ongoing franchise about an arrogant genius. He’s also the star of Warner Bros.’ Sherlock Holmes movies — not to be confused with BBC One’s Sherlock TV series, which features a different Marvel actor as the famed detective.
The Sherlock Holmes franchise was put on hold for a bit while Downey was busy with Marvel, but now Sherlock Holmes 3 is moving forward again with an entire writers’ room at its disposal. Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Justin Malen (Baywatch), and Kieran Fitzgerald (Snowden) are all on board to help write the next (but probably not last) installment of the series.

A couple of weeks back, I called Starz’s Black Sails the best television series you’re probably not watching. If there is a close second in this contest, it’s probably Amazon’s original drama series Bosch. Sure,other people must be watching these shows or they wouldn’t be renewed for multiple seasons, but I see very little buzz about on social media, and none of the friends seem to be invested in these series. Well, the good news is that Amazon has renewed Bosh for a fourth season, ahead of its Season 3 debut in April, so now you have a chance to jump into your Prime Video app and binge the first two seasons. Hit the jump to learn more about Bosch season 4.
