A League of Their Own Series Adds D'Arcy Carden

The prospect of Amazon turning the beloved 1992 sports dramedy A League of Their Own into a half-hour comedy series was already an enticing one, largely thanks to the involvement of Broad City co-creator, co-writer, co-executive producer, and co-star Abbi Jacobson taking a starring role in the series, not to mention co-writing and executive producing again. Now we’re even more excited because The Good Place co-star D’Arcy Carden, who plays the virtual assistant Janet on the afterlife comedy series, will be joining the A League of Their Own series.

Streaming Service Comparisons

The streaming wars have just begun so you might want to hunker down in the trenches for the next few years. Everyone is hell-bent on besting Netflix, which means we’re about to be inundated with a slew of new streaming services.

The Aeronauts Trailer

If you’re sick of Marvel movies delivering the same superhero action, just like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, then maybe you’ll take solace in the action and adventure of The Aeronauts, a new movie from Amazon Studios.

Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones star in The Aeronauts, which follows wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and headstrong scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne) as they confront the elements and risk their lives in order to fly a hot air balloon higher than anyone has done before. But this isn’t just to set a record, it’s to determine whether or not the weather can be predicted. That might not sound very riveting, but the latest The Aeronauts trailer shows some rather suspenseful sequences. Read More »

the report trailer new

I saw The Report more than half-a-year ago at Sundance, and yet the movie has lingered with me ever since. It’s a powerful political drama/thriller, and it features what might just be the best performance of Adam Driver‘s career. Driver has quickly risen to be an actor worth paying attention to, and his work in this year’s Marriage Story is phenomenal.

But his performance in The Report is even better. And he still has Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the way. In short, Adam Driver is having a good year. The Report tells the true story of an investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program following 9/11, and all the dark facts dredged up in the process. Watch the latest The Report trailer below.
