Glow Featurette

Netflix is bordering on belligerent with the amount of content the streaming service has been offering to its subscribers lately, and if you’re looking to stay on top of it all, you should wipe your weekend plans because today marks the release of yet another full season of television. The 1980s-set series GLOW, which is loosely based on the real-life low-budget wrestling show “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” hit the streaming service earlier today and has earned some great reviews thus far.

But before you binge the whole first season, take a look at a new GLOW featurette that showcases the stars doing their own stunts in the ring.

The Little Hours review

The Little Hours is based on one of the tales found in The Decameron, a collection of 14th century novellas from Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio. But even if, like me, you’d never heard of that author before (let alone read his work), all you really need to know about this film is that it features a cast of hilarious people doing filthy, hysterical things. The trailer prominently features a quote from the Catholic League that refers to the movie as “pure trash” – but there’s an important distinction that needs to be made there. It may be trashy, but it’s definitely not trash. The Little Hours is one of the funniest films of 2017. Read More »

One of my most anticipated new shows coming to Netflix is GLOW, which stars Alison Brie and Marc Maron. Set within the real 1980’s world of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, Brie plays the fictionalized Ruth Wilder, an out-of-work, struggling actress in Los Angeles who “finds one last chance for stardom when she’s thrust into the glitter and spandex world of women’s wrestling.” The show was created by Liz Flahive (Homeland, Nurse Jackie) and Carly Mensch (Nurse Jackie, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds), who executive produce alongside Orange Is the New Black producers Jenji Kohan and Tara Herrmann.

The first reviews of GLOW have begun to appear online. Did the critics give the series a piledriver or did they mark out like fans at an old ECW show?

steven spielberg ranked bridge of spies

Sometimes director Steven Spielberg can toil away for years trying to find the perfect combination of elements to tell a story, and other times he’s able to fast-track the entire process from idea to finished product in less than a year. He’s doing the latter with a new film called The Papers (formerly known as The Post): he signed on in March and the movie comes out this December. It tells the true story of the controversial publication of classified documents known as the Pentagon Papers in the early 1970s.

Spielberg had already managed to snag Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep to star, but now he’s assembled a spectacular supporting cast to join his heavy hitters, including actors from Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Arrested DevelopmentFargo, and more. Ain’t no party like a Spielberg party. Read who else has come on board the filmmaker’s Pentagon Papers movie below.

glow trailer

Netflix’s GLOW is constructed from a colorful combination of names and concepts: Community star Alison Brie, comedian and podcast-extraorindaire Marc Maron, the producers of Orange is the New Black, an ’80s Hollywood setting, and the world of syndicated women’s professional wrestling. If the trailer for the show’s first season is any indication, this could be a big-hearted winner and something that even non-wrestling fans can get behind.

The Little Hours Trailer

Last year, director Martin Scorsese brought us Silence, a pensive, harrowing story of 17th-century Portuguese missionaries, who embark on a perilous journey to Japan to find their missing mentor and struggle with the decision of renouncing their faith or suffering an agonizing death. This year, director Jeff Baena brings us a trio of raunchy, horny nuns who just want to fuck the new servant at their convent.

The Little Hours follows Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci as three nuns who are anything but holy. I’ll just leave it at that, because the red band trailer does a much better job of showing you just how wild these sisters can get. Watch red band The Little Hours trailer below. Yes, this is NSFW because of ample dirty language and even some nudity. Read More »

Alison Brie Glow Netflix

Netflix has been bolstering its stable of original content over the past few years, and since money doesn’t seem to be a problem for them, they can shell out the cash necessary to make expensive period pieces like The Crown and the now-cancelled Marco Polo. But the streaming service seems to have a particular affinity for the 1980s, because along with things like Narcos, Stranger Things, and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Netflix is releasing a new show called GLOW that’s also set in that decade.

The show premieres later this summer, but in the meantime, take a look at a batch of new photos featuring cast members Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men), Marc Maron (WTF with Marc Maron, Almost Famous), and more.

batgirl actress

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

a family man trailer

We’ve seen Gerard Butler save the President twice, play a God, and soon we may even witness him discover a way to defeat a Geostorm in this year’s Geostorm. Butler is typically a powerful, bone-breaking presence on the big screen, but he isn’t playing an action hero in A Family Man. In the drama, which co-stars Alison BrieWillem Dafoe and Alfred Molina, Butler is a success hungry headhunter in Chicago who has trouble balancing his work and family life, until everything changes.

Below, watch A Family Man trailer.
