love wedding repeat trailer

At first glance, Netflix’s newest romantic comedy Love Wedding Repeat does little to set itself apart from the rest of the streamer’s swooning catalogue besides a dry British humor that makes the film feel like a charming successor to Four Weddings and a Funeral. But hidden in the logline for Love Wedding Repeat — and perhaps even the title — is the hint that this rom-com starring Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn, and Freida Pinto may have a secret sci-fi twist. Watch the Love Wedding Repeat trailer below.

tiger king update

There’s a lot going on in Tiger King, Netflix’s buzz-worthy new docuseries. And while the majority of the show focuses on now-incarcerated private zoo owner Joe Exotic and his rivalry with animal rights activist Carole Baskin, there’s also an entire episode that strongly suggests Baskin played a part in the disappearance and presumed death of her husband, multi-millionaire Jack Donald “Don” Lewis. With the Tiger King popularity soaring, a Florida sheriff has decided to reach out to the public for new leads in the Lewis case. Meanwhile, Baskin herself isn’t very happy with she was portrayed in the docuseries.

“Fighting for your life makes every other thing you ever did before seem extremely dull.”

This line is spoken by Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) in the penultimate episode of Ozark’s third season, which hit Netflix on Friday. It’s a line that cuts to the core of what makes Wendy, her husband Marty (Jason Bateman), and the show around them tick. In its first season, Ozark plunged viewers into the world of the Byrdes and their Missouri money-laundering operation. From the moment a Mexican drug lord knelt Marty down and put a gun to his head in the pilot episode, we’ve been watching him talk and scheme his way out of certain death.

Subsequent episodes and seasons have seen Wendy take on an increasingly prominent role within the criminal enterprise that is keeping her and Marty and their two kids alive (for now). Ozark lost some momentum in its second season as its pace slowed, but the show is back with a vengeance now, doing what it does best: namely, putting the Byrdes at the center of a volatile situation where things keep spiraling further out of control. This season, the dark drama pops with bigger emotional fireworks, thanks in no small part to the arrival of Wendy’s bipolar brother, Ben (Tom Pelphrey), who adds an unexpectedly moving human element to a show where characters regularly display an inhuman lack of empathy. Ben is the Fredo Corleone in this equation, ready to break his sibling’s heart and that of the viewer.

If you’re all caught up with your weekend Ozark binge, then let’s dive into the Lake of the Ozarks with spoilers.

The Main Event trailer

For years, we’ve been talking about how Hollywood doesn’t make the same kinds of movies that it used to, but Netflix seems determined not to let those older, previously-successful templates disappear completely. In recent years, the streaming service has ushered in a rom-com resurgence and breathed life back into the mid-budget action thriller, and now it looks like they’re resurrecting both the kid-centric fantasy and the family-friendly sports movie at the same time with The Main Event, in which a young boy finds a magical wrestling mask and becomes a WWE superstar. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
