High Fidelity TV Series Trailer

In a new approach to Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel of the same name, Hulu’s High Fidelity TV series puts Zoë Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road) in the lead role of Rob Brooks as she takes a look back at the five biggest heartbreaks in her life, all so she can figure out why she keeps having her heart broken. John Cusack starred in the film adaptation from back in 2000, and the latest High Fidelity TV series trailer shows the spirit of the film and the lead character have both been kept intact.

mulan tv spot

We’re not far from reaching Disney live-action remake overload. And yet, the new Mulan can’t help but look promising. Maybe it’s wuxia-style fight choreography. Maybe it’s the fact that this is an action epic and not a musical. But it largely might be because director Niki Caro is eschewing the tired shot-for-shot trend we’ve seen in films like Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King and tackling an adaption of the ancient Chinese poem upon which Mulan is based. In China, Mulan is considered a folk figure, a near-mythic hero and not just a Disney princess. And Disney’s new Mulan TV spot highlights that mythic warrior that Mulan becomes.

Speaking with /Film, Bader said the ‘90s time travel series Quantum Leap is another title under consideration and spoke about what led to the Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell revivalson The Peacock. Read More »

parasite limited series

In my mind, Bong Joon-ho‘s Parasite is the movie of 2019: it’s a twisty, subversive thriller about class and income inequality, told by a master at the peak of his powers. It appears that HBO also liked what they saw, because a new report says the premium channel is currently in negotiations for a Parasite limited series, which would team Bong Joon-ho with Succession‘s Adam McKay. Details are still scarce – so scarce, in fact, that most of my feelings about this limited series hinge on one huge, unanswered question.

howling remake

It director Andy Muschietti is ready to bark at the moon with a remake of The Howling. The filmmaker has previously expressed interest in remaking Joe Dante’s 1981 werewolf pic, and not he says it’s actually happening – at Netflix. The original followed a reporter (Dee Wallace) who heads to a mountain resort for some much needed R&R. Unfortunately, the resort is infested with werewolves.

the grudge clip

When you’ve got Lin Shaye in a horror movie, you know you’re in for some thrills. The horror stalwart has become an unusual new scream queen in recent years, with roles in the Insidious movies and Oujia.

As the film hits theaters this weekend, Sony Pictures has released a new The Grudge clip showing Shaye playing a rather creepy game of peekaboo. Watch The Grudge clip below.

The Dirty Dozen remake

A couple of weeks ago, word came out that Suicide Squad director David Ayer was in negotiations to write and direct a remake of The Dirty Dozen, the 1967 classic about an Army major who must lead twelve dangerous convicts behind enemy lines for an assassination mission during World War II. Now Ayer has offered a bit more insight into his approach for the new version, including confirming that his movie will be set during modern day and revealing that he sees it as the possible start of an ongoing action franchise.

the office reboot

The Office might be re-opening its doors. In the era of TV reboots and remakes — and when The Office is one of the most popular streaming properties — it’s no surprise that NBC is looking back fondly at its beloved Emmy-winning sitcom. Chatter about The Office reboot has been ongoing since last year, but with its stars onto bigger things, it seemed unlikely. But an intriguing new development comes from series creator Greg Daniels, who may have “an idea” for The Office reboot.

downhill trailer

When it was announced that there would be an American remake of Ruben Östlund’s excruciatingly good Swedish comedy-drama Force Majeurewell, it was all downhill from there. Fittingly, that remake, starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a couple in crisis, is titled Downhill. But with a comedy all-star team in front of the screen and an Oscar-winning duo behind the camera, could Downhill actually reach the heights of its Swedish predecessor? Watch the Downhill trailer to find out.
