visible out on television trailer

Apple TV+ still has yet to release an original title that gets them into the cultural conversation on the same level as Disney+ (with the possible exception of The Morning Show). But as the streaming services rolls out its next slate of shows, some promising contenders are making an appearance. The latest is the five-part documentary series Visible: Out on Television, which charts the rise of LGBTQ representation on TV and the impact that it made on the community at large.

Featuring a star-studded group of celebrities like Ellen Degeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Anderson Cooper, Billy Porter, and more, Visible: Out on Television already has an emotional and heartfelt trailer. Who knows how much we’ll cry once the series comes out? Watch the Visible Out on Television trailer below.

Star Trek Picard featurette - Patrick Stewart

Sir Patrick Stewart wants one thing to be absolutely clear: his new CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Picard, is not merely Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0.

“Almost twenty years have passed. Things have become more complex,” the acclaimed actor says in a new featurette. “The world of Starfleet, the world of the Federation, is not quite what it was the last time Jean-Luc Picard was seen in that world. It’s different. And it’s not all good.” Watch the full video below. Read More »

weekend box office bad boys for life

Ride together, die together, blow up the box office together: Bad Boys for Life is a hit. The third entry in the action franchise exceeded expectations at the weekend box office, taking in 83% more than initially projected. But while Bad Boys had a good weekend, Dolittle did not.

migrants short film

Neill Blomkamp‘s experimental short film initiative Oats Studios was launched in 2017 as sort of a creative breeding ground for the Chappie director as well as a platform to boost up-and-coming filmmakers. A few of Blomkamp’s own short films garnered a bit of buzz — enough for one project to be crowdfunded for a feature film remake, and then cancelled — but with the newest Oats Studios film, the director steps back to let some new talent shine. Oats Studios has released Migrants, a short film by Paul Chadeisson as part of “a new playlist that will become a curated collection of our favorite short films from our favorite artists.” Watch the Migrants short film below.

One of the most high-profile filmmakers associated with the streaming service Apple TV+ since its launch last November has been M. Night Shyamalan. Promotional images for Servant, which released its tense season finale on Friday, prominently featured the words, “From M. Night Shyamalan” over the title. Shyamalan directed the show’s pilot and serves as one of its executive producers, much like he did with Fox’s Wayward Pines.

The plot of Servant revolves around a suspicious nanny who enters the life of a Philadelphia couple. Here, as with Wayward Pines, Shyamalan has taken a step back from writing duties. Showrunner Tony Basgallop wrote all ten episodes of Servant’s first season. Yet there are aspects of the show that feel very much of a piece with Shyamalan’s overall body of work as a writer-director. It’s another atmospheric dip into psychological horror where the choice of setting, the familiar preoccupation with belief and delusion, a newer tendency toward exploitation tactics, and less salubrious aspects like accusations of plagiarism (Servant is now the subject of a lawsuit) all draw a line to previous moments in his career.
