Hans Zimmer MLS Theme

The ever-prolific Hans Zimmer took some time off from composing pulse-pounding scores for big blockbusters to record some music for…*checks notes*…Major League Soccer. Yes, that’s right, Mr. Zimmer is out here rocking the soccer (or football, if you live anywhere other than America) world with a big, loud, kick-ass piece of music. I’m not a sports fan, and I have never felt the urge to watch a soccer game in my life. But even I have to admit this rocks. Hear the Hans Zimmer MLS theme below.

dirty money season 2 trailer

In case you needed another reminder of how corrupt and downright evil the corporate world can be, here comes Dirty Money season 2. The series “provides an up-close and personal view into untold stories of scandal, financial malfeasance, and corruption in the world of business,” and this new season features some familiar, much-loathed faces — like Jared Kushner, son-in-law to the President of the United States, and the possible inspiration for Brahms from Brahms: The Boy 2. Watch the Dirty Money season 2 trailer.

tokyo godfathers trailer

In his short-lived career, Satoshi Kon released nothing but bonafide anime classics and Tokyo Godfathers is no exception. Often touted as the most accessible of the Perfect Blue and Paprika director’s filmography, Tokyo Godfathers is a warm, Frank Capra-esque comedy that has flown under the radar in the Western hemisphere since its release in 2003. But 17 years later, Tokyo Godfathers is finally getting released in U.S. theaters with an official English-language dub. Watch the English dub trailer for Tokyo Godfathers below.

anthony mackie streaming

Anthony Mackie may be the star of one of the biggest franchises in the world, but he’s probably on your computer screen (or if you’re really fancy, your television via a streaming device) more often than he’s on the silver screen. Many actors, once they make it big, are reluctant to go back to TV or streaming unless it’s a big prestige project. But in the past year, Mackie has appeared in a Black Mirror episode on Netflix, the Netflix Joe Lynch action thriller Point Blank, and he will soon be starring in the new season of Netflix’s Altered Carbon. It’s all intentional, Mackie says.

distant

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s Rachel Brosnahan and In the HeightsAnthony Ramos are uniting for a sci-fi comedy from the fine folks at Amblin. The flick features a script from Spenser Cohen and follows an asteroid miner and a woman trapped in an escape pod. I, for one, am sick and tired of all these Hollywood movies about asteroid miners – there’s one every week! But maybe this one will be a cut above the rest.

tales from the loop trailer

What is Tales From the Loop? Well, for one thing, it’s the first TV series to ever be adapted from digital paintings. The show is inspired by the dreamy, surreal sci-fi artwork from Simon Stålenhag, and this adaptation appears to have perfectly captured the nature of Stålenhag’s paintings. In the first Tales From the Loop trailer below, the imagery is strange and tantalizing, drawing you into what is sure to be a unique new series.

Halloweentown revisited

(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.)

There are few movies that manage to draw you into their world as instantly as the Harry Potter movies (stay with me here). Their themes of wanting a place to belong and wishing you were part of something magical, and their awe-inspiring wizarding world made millions of kids and grown-ups alike wish they could receive their Hogwarts letter one day.

Of course, what makes Harry Potter special are the kind of things that directly clash with what we know of the Disney brand. After all, not only have they shut down or otherwise changed projects to make them more kid friendly to fit their company image, but their most recent animated show, The Owl House, has come under criticism by parents who consider the show to be “demonic” – all because the show dares to reference witches and have a visual style that’s inspired by the religious paintings by Hieronymus Bosch (though there is a cute little demon).

But back in the ‘90s, things were different. Just one year after the release of the very first Harry Potter book, Disney released its own story wherein a young kid who has always felt they didn’t belong suddenly discovers that they come from a family of magic-users and wants to follow their tradition of studying to become a wizard in a place full of magical creatures, all while being chased by an evil warlock. Only the film didn’t have Dumbledore, but instead Debbie Reynolds as a campy Mary Poppins who owns a microwave that has “Bubble,” “Toil,” and “Trouble” buttons on it. With that in mind, let’s take a look back at one of the most successful Disney Channel Original Movies, the original Halloweentown. Read More »

Eric Bana motorcycle

There was a time in the 2000s when Hollywood seemed hellbent on making Eric Bana the next big thing. But the Australian actor has shrugged off those expectations and settled into the next phase of his career, most recently playing the title character on the TV series Dirty John. Now he’s found his next project, and it’s one he’s obviously passionate about: he’ll write, co-direct, and star in a film based on Mike “The Bike” Hailwood, a British grand prix motorcycle racer who was once considered to be the best of all time.
