The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel Trailer

On January 26, 2013, Canadian student Elisa Lam came to Los Angeles. She eventually checked into the run-down Cecil Hotel located in Downtown Los Angeles. But by January 31, 2013, she had vanished, seemingly into thin air. There was no record of Lam checking out of the hotel, and all the police really had to go on was mysterious security camera footage from one of the hotel’s elevators that showed Lam behaving oddly. The case went cold – until February 19, 2013, when Lam’s body was found floating in one of the hotel’s rooftop water tanks. Lam’s disappearance and death – and that disturbing elevator footage – created a wealth of conspiracy theories – some plausible, some ludicrous (the prospect of the supernatural came up, for instance). Now, the Netflix docuseries Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel tries to uncover the real story.

And though you surely don’t need a reminder about who that character is or how he’s involved with the story, I’ll give you one anyway below. Read More »

The Great Gatsby TV series

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic The Great Gatsby has had its share of film and television adaptations already, but since it entered the public domain at the start of this year, it’s fair to expect a flurry of new iterations to enter development in the halls of Hollywood studios.

A new report states that writer Michael Hirst (Vikings, The Tudors) is working on a big budget television adaptation of the novel that is being envisioned as a closed-ended miniseries which “will explore New York’s Black community in the 1920s as well as the musical subculture.”

Instead of hitting theaters and HBO Max on March 26, 2021, as was announced last week, Godzilla vs. Kong will now arrive on March 31. Why move it back five days? No idea! But we have some guesses.
