once upon a time in hollywood china release

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is not having a fairy tale release in China. The Quentin Tarantino comedy-drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt would be the filmmaker’s first proper release in China, but a week before Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was set to debut in theaters, regulators abruptly reversed course.

There’s something to say about consistency in television. How many mighty shows have we seen fall in their final seasons? Too many, but for a show to stay true to its self, evolve, and entertain for many years, that’s a feat. It’s an accomplishment HBO’s Ballers pulled off through its five-year run on HBO, where it was the cable network’s most popular 30-minute comedy, and yet not the most popular comedy to talk about. It wasn’t ever a show to tweet about every Sunday anyway, but in spite of generally solid reviews for a solid show, there wasn’t much love for a Dwayne Johnson performance that deserved more attention. But Ballers was one of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s faves for good reason.

Uncanny Annie Review

(Blumhouse Television and Hulu have partnered for a monthly horror anthology series titled Into The Dark, set to release a full holiday-themed feature the first Friday of every month. Horror anthology expert Matt Donato will be tackling the series one-by-one, stacking up the entries as they become streamable.)

Welcome back, Into The Dark fans! Paul Davis directed Season 1’s inaugural October entry The Body, and he’s back to play a most wicked game in Season 2’s kickoff Uncanny Annie. A bit of tabletop terror on Halloween night that tricks us with an unexpected holiday plotline, but it’s all macabre flavored treats. Suckers for rules to live by in horror scenarios will remember “Uncanny Annie” and her stacked deck of “Truths” or “Mischief,” starting Season 2 with a bit more zip this time around.

New Barney Movie

Do you remember Barney & Friends? The educational children’s series ran from 1992 to 2009 and focused on a group of kids who learned valuable lessons in sing-song from a big purple tyrannosaurs rex named Barney, who was really just part of their imagination. The show has been off the air for a decade, but Mattel Films is keen on bringing Barney back into the pop culture scene with an all-new live-action movie, and for some reason, Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya is producing it with them.
