High Fiedelity TV Series

The forthcoming Disney streaming service isn’t going to launch until sometime in 2019, but the House of Mouse already has plenty of movies and TV shows in development. Most of the programming they’ve planned so far has sounded quite family friendly, but for one of their TV projects, they’re looking at turning an R-rated romantic comedy into a TV series.

The Disney-owned Touchstone Pictures released an adaptation of Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel High Fidelity in 2000 with John Cusack in the lead role as a record store owner looking back at his failed relationships as part of hopefully making his love life a little better as he tries to figure out where he went wrong. Now there will be a High Fidelity TV series created for the Disney streaming service. Read More »

happy anniversary trailer

It’s a phrase on billions of greeting cards, exchanged between millions of couples who may or may not mean it. “Happy anniversary.” Now it’s the title of a Netflix romantic-comedy starring Ben Schwartz and Noël Wells.

It’s difficult not to describe Love, Simon in contradictory terms. To put it as simply as possible: it’s extraordinary for just how ordinary it is. If one were to point out its faults, they would be the same as any other mainstream teen coming-of-age movie. Maybe it’s a little glib, maybe it bucks realism for dramatic effect, maybe it doesn’t really take any risks — isn’t it more important that this movie is so profoundly normal when its star (by Hollywood’s metrics) is so rare?

Life Itself Trailer

Dan Fogelman has been making audiences cry all the time with his NBC family drama series This Is Us. Now he’s bringing that same level of tearjerking to the big screen with his sophomore directing effort.

Life Itself (not to be confused with the Roger Ebert documentary of the same name) stars Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Olivia Wilde (TRON Legacy) in a multi-generational love story that spans decades, not unlike This Is Us. But this one even spans across the globe with every story we see connected by a single event. And if the Life Itself trailer that debuted during the most recent episode of the aforementioned Emmy-nominated show is any indicator, Dan Fogelman will likely yank tears straight from your face.

Call Me By Your Name sequel details

We’ve known that Call Me By Your Name, last year’s romantic indie drama from director Luca Guadagnino, was going to get a sequel for a little while now. The filmmaker has mentioned it a few times, but only in vague terms – until last Sunday night on the Oscars red carpet. There he revealed some new Call Me By Your Name sequel details, and seemed to confirm that actors Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet will return to reprise their roles. Read More »

book club trailer

Who knew that Fifty Shades of Grey would inspire more than just seething hot takes and a middling movie trilogy?

The erotic book series by E.L. James was the guilty pleasure for many a real-life book club, and now — astonishingly — it will serve as the springboard for a lusty mom rom-com starring Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen. The definitive actresses of their generation are starring in the aptly titled Book Club.
