Trials of Gabriel Fernandez Trailer

The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez is a new six-part true crime series from Netflix, and it looks like a particularly tough watch. Indeed, the opening moments of the newly released trailer feature a court bailiff warning people in a courtroom that the case they’re about to hear is “very emotional” and that it might end up overwhelming them. In 2013, an 8-year-old boy died after long-standing abuse from his mother and her boyfriend. The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez examines not so much the murder as it does the system that knew about the abuse, but failed to help.

the batman costume

Update: Set photos have been posted online that appear to depict jack-o-lanterns on the set of The Batman, which lends credence to the long-held speculation that Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s beloved comic graphic novel Batman: The Long Halloween may serve as an inspiration for Reeves’ movie. We won’t link to those photos, but they’re out there if you want to track them down. In any case, the apparent Halloween setting may mark the first time a live-action Batman movie has taken place during that holiday since a brief scene in 1995’s Batman Forever. Our original article follows.

Since Robert Pattinson stepped into the cape and cowl, it was clear that Matt Reeves‘ The Batman would follow a younger Caped Crusader. But just how early? We still know very few details about the plot of The Batman, but previous reports suggested that the film would show the early days of Batman’s career, barring the origin story that we’ve already seen dozens of times before. Now a new tweet from Reeves hints that The Batman will draw inspiration from one of the most iconic depictions of Batman’s early career: Frank Miller’s acclaimed comic book Batman: Year One.
