The Defenders trailer

After years of laying groundwork, Marvel Television and Netflix are finally ready to bring their ground-level superheroes together in The Defenders, which arrives on the streaming service less than a month from now. Now they’ve released a new The Defenders trailer narrated by none other than Marvel’s legendary former editor Stan Lee, and it also gives a quick glimpse at a character who many wondered if we’d be seeing in this limited series at all.

Christopher Nolan Netflix

There are a couple of things about Christopher Nolan, the man, that we know with complete certainty that he loves: wearing suits, and the idea of shooting movies on celluloid. After all, he’s part of the group of directors who essentially strong-armed the studios into continuing to purchase actual film so these people can continue using it for their productions. But here’s something the filmmaker doesn’t like: the way Netflix handles their original films.

In a new interview, the director candidly speaks about why he wouldn’t work with Netflix and dings their “mindless policy” of not supporting theatrical distribution. Read the Christopher Nolan Netflix comments below.

Narcos season 3 teaser

Narcos has been sitting in my Netflix queue since the day season 1 premiered, but I’ve never been inspired to watch it because I’ve seen the story of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar on screen so many times before. The excellent documentary Cocaine Cowboys, ESPN’s 30 for 30 entry The Two Escobars, heck, even one of Entourage‘s fake movies covered it. But the upcoming third season is moving beyond the well-trod Escobar saga and into new territory, and a new Narcos season 3 teaser (and a handful of new photos) show us exactly what Pedro Pascal‘s Javier Peña and the rest of the DEA are up against – plus, we can now mark our calendars for the season 3 premiere date.

Castlevania cast

Producer Adi Shankar, the guy responsible for bootleg short films like the R-rated Power/Rangers and Venom: Truth in Journalism, has been hyping his upcoming animated television adaptation of the popular Nintendo video game Castlevania for a while now, and when the teaser trailer was released last month, fans finally got a taste of what he was talking about.

Now, in a new video, Shankar and actor Graham McTavish (whom you may recognize from his role as The Saint of Killers on AMC’s Preacher) have announced the major Castlevania cast members – including McTavish himself, who’s voicing Dracula, and The Hobbit trilogy star Richard Armitage, who’s voicing the vampire hunter Trevor Belmont.

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.
