Legend of Cocaine Island trailer

The Great Recession laid financial waste to a huge number of American families. After being totally cleared out, one man decided to take things into his own hands by seeking out buried treasure to get his life back on track: not gold from El Dorado or a pirate’s fortune, but a huge supply of cocaine. Yes, of course he was from Florida.

That’s the premise behind The Legend of Cocaine Island, a “Southern fairy tale” in the form of a new Netflix documentary that tells the true story of Rodney Hyden, a small business owner in Central Florida who hears a story about a buried bag of cocaine and gathers a crew to go after it. Check out the trailer below.

Update: Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who loudly voiced his support for Brooklyn Nine-Nine when that show was cancelled (and then appeared on it when it was picked up by a different network), is now putting that same fervor into saving One Day at a Time.

We’ll have to see if his passionate pleas can move the needle, or if they fall on deaf ears. Our original article follows.

After three seasons, the Netflix series One Day at a Time has officially been cancelled by the streaming service. But this may not be the end of the road just yet: Sony Pictures Television, which produced the show, is planning to try to find a new home for it. Read More »

apple streaming service networks

Apple is gearing up to be a strong competitor against streaming giants Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon. In addition to its slew of forthcoming original titles, the Apple streaming service is currently negotiating with high-profile cable networks HBO, Showtime, and Starz to feature their shows and movies on its platform.

Vice musical number watch

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a very off-the-wall biopic of Dick Cheney, but there was one moment apparently too wacky to include: a musical number. The number comes early in the film, where Christian Bale‘s Cheney is learning the ins and outs of politics from Steve Carell‘s Donald Rumsfeld. McKay talked about the scene previously, and verified it would be included on the Blu-ray release. Now, as the Blu-ray and digital release approaches, the scene is finally available for all to see. Watch the Vice musical number below.

Brick Blu-ray

Believe it or not, Rian Johnson‘s debut feature Brick has never been released on Blu-ray in America (only in Canada, America’s hat). That’s about to change. Kino Lorber Studio Classics will be releasing Johnson’s high school noir film on Blu-ray in May, and it’s going to be loaded with extras. The 2005 film took hard boiled detective tropes (and dialogue) and dropped them into a modern-day high school setting, with incredible results. More on the Brick Blu-ray below.
