We Are Freestyle Love Supreme trailer

If you remember watching the early days of the American version of Whose Line is it Anyway? in the late ’90s and early 2000s, you probably recall a game in which performer Wayne Brady would essentially freestyle his way through a song based on a suggestion from the audience. But he wasn’t the only one doing hip-hop improv around that time.

There was also Freestyle Love Supreme, a small improv group comprised of future big names like Lin-Manuel Miranda. That group is the subject of a feature length documentary called We Are Freestyle Love Supreme which played at Sundance earlier this year, and it’s about to debut on Hulu in just a few days. Here’s the first trailer. Read More »

the simpsons aspect ratio

When Disney+ launched in November with all 30 seasons of The Simpsons available to stream, fans were overjoyed — until they realized classic episodes of the long-running sitcom had half of their frames chopped off to fit into the now commonly used 16:9 aspect ratio. This is a problem with most shows made before 2009 that have made the transition to digital, but the frame cropping with The Simpsons was particularly egregious because of show’s abundant visual gags, many of which ended up being cut out. Disney+ pledged to restore the show to its original 4:3 aspect ratio, which it is now finally rolling out, more than six months later. But there’s a reason it took so long.

tenet tv spot

So many questions surround Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet. Just what the heck is the movie about? If it’s not about time travel, how does all the time-bending we see in the trailer work? And will the movie actually open in theaters in July? These questions still remain unanswered, but one thing we now know about the flick, directly from Nolan himself, is that it’s action-packed. In fact, Nolan says it has more action than any film he’s made before. And now there’s a new TV spot that gives us even more glimpses of all that action.

cobra kai season 3

YouTube swept the leg, but Cobra Kai isn’t down for the count just yet.

The streaming video site’s most acclaimed original scripted series won’t premiere its new season on that platform. Instead, Cobra Kai, the streamer’s TV continuation of the Karate Kid film franchise, is on the hunt for another home at a different streaming service, with Netflix and Hulu reportedly “leading the short list of contenders” who showed interest in picking up the show.

cannes 2020 lineup

Cannes is still canceled, but that doesn’t mean we can’t daydream about what could’ve been. While the prestigious fest will not happen this year due to the coronavirus, festival organizers are still planning to release the names of the films they had hoped to screen. While this may seem futile at first glance, having your film associated in any way, shape, or form with Cannes lends said movie a certain amount of credibility. In other words, it’s an honor just to be nominated.

Secret Society of Second-Born Royals Trailer

So far, Disney+ hasn’t made much of a splash with their original movies. The remake of Lady and the Tramp, the holiday comedy Noelle, the nature adventure Togo, the family comedy Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, and the adaptation of Stargirl (not the DC Comics character) all came and went without much pomp and circumstance. Now, it looks like another Disney+ original movie is likely to follow in their footsteps.

Secret Society of Second-Born Royals is not only a mouthful of a title, but the premise sounds like a lot of nonsense too. The Disney+ original movie focuses on a group of teens who are the second-born children of royal lineage. That means they don’t get to become kings and queens, but are relegated to only being princes and princesses. But what they come to find out is that being second-born just might be a better, albeit much more dangerous, as they are given superpowers and the responsibility of protecting the world from anyone who might threaten it.
