Euphoria, HBO’s hit series that looks like it’s designed for people much younger than me, is coming back for a second season. But before season 2 arrives, HBO is bringing not one but two different special episodes. One will be a Christmas episode arriving in December, and we’ve got our first look at that via a new trailer below. The second special episode is said to be COVID-19 related.

At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out.

Roberto Benigni became an international star after he won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in Life is Beautiful, a film Benigni also directed and co-wrote. But Benigni’s star plummeted a bit in the years to come, worsened by his directorial follow-up, 2002’s Pinocchio. The live-action take on the classic tale was critically panned, most notably for the fact that the middle-aged Benigni cast himself as the puppet boy. You might think that experience would keep Benigni away from all-things Pinocchio-related, but no. He’s starring in yet another take on the tale – this time as Geppetto, the woodcarver who crafts the puppet.

The Mandalorian season 2 has brought quite an assembly of characters into the story of the bounty hunter Din Djarin and Baby Yoda (who now has an actual name: Grogu). Just this past weekend, The Clone Wars favorite Ahsoka Tano made an appearance played by Rosario Dawson. Earlier this season, Katee Sackhoff brought her animated character Bo-Katan to life in live-action as well, and she brought two other Mandalorian warriors with her. However, that doesn’t mean all of these characters will continue to pop up throughout the rest of the season. In fact, we might already be finished with one of them. Read More »
Even though the United States has made a lot of progress when it comes to giving members of the LGBTQ community the respect and equality they deserve, there are still plenty of places with small town mindsets who need a little push in the right direction. That’s exactly what happens in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix movie The Prom when a teenage girl (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) wants to bring her girlfriend (Ariana DeBose) to the prom in her small Indiana town, but the PTA board votes against it.
Who will stand up to fight this injustice? It’s Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden), two Broadway stars reeling from a recent flop who are looking for a way to drum up some attention and give their careers a bit of a boost. With some help from their friends Angie (Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), they’re off to spark some publicity with a lot of singing and dancing. If there’s one thing that will convince Indiana folk to embrace the LGBTQ community, it’s the power of musicals, right? Read More »

Last weekend’s episode of The Mandalorian saw the debut of Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano in the live-action Star Wars universe after becoming a fan favorite character from The Clone Wars. Ahsoka also had a hand in the plot of Star Wars Rebels as a Rebel informant under the codename “Fulcrum,” which resulted in an eventual face-off with her old master: Darth Vader.
With Ahsoka Tano coming into the live-action Star Wars universe, fans have been wondering what that means for her past, including the mission that she embarked on with Sabine Wren in the epilogue of the Star Wars Rebels series finale. Now that executive producer Dave Filoni can speak freely about Ahsoka Tano’s presence in The Mandalorian, it’s been implied that the live-action Star Wars series may actually be unfolding before that epilogue in Star Wars Rebels.

So much for Utopia. The Amazon series, an American remake of the British drama of the same name, came from Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn, and for a while, Flynn was working on the show with David Fincher over at HBO. HBO eventually passed on the project, though, and so did Fincher. But Flynn kept things going, taking the series to Amazon, who gave it a straight-to-series order. Unfortunately, the series failed to generate much buzz, and has now been canceled by Amazon after only one season.
