The Case Against Adnan Syed Trailer new

In 1999, high school student Hae Min Lee was murdered. Her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed was convicted of the crime, and the case faded into relative obscurity to the outside world.

Now, the story is being looked at with fresh eyes – those of documentary filmmaker Amy Berg. Berg’s new 4-part documentary series The Case Against Adnan Syed delves into the same questions as “Serial”…but may not come up with the same answers.

Todd Phillips is jumping from the Joker to the Hulkster. The filmmaker is set to direct a Hulk Hogan biopic for Netflix, and he’s tagged Chris Hemsworth to play the part.

Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson have both been acting in Hollywood for almost forty years, but so far, they only have one credit in common: a 1990 TV event called The Earth Day Special – and they don’t even share the screen together. (Side note: scroll through that special if you have the time…there’s a lot going on in it.)

But now the veteran actors are suiting up to take down legendary criminals Bonnie and Clyde in The Highwaymen, a new Netflix movie that arrives on the streaming service next month. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

rocketman featurette

Hollywood can’t say no to a musical biopic. They’re usually hits, and more often than not, they score Oscar noms – even if they’re not very good (cough cough Bohemian Rhapsody cough cough). But the upcoming Rocketman, which tells the story of Elton John, might end up being a pleasant surprise. For one thing, it’s being sold as a “musical fantasy”, not a straightforward biopic. For another, it has Taron Egerton in the lead, and he’s actually singing – not just lip-synching. A new Rocketman featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the film, and showcases Egerton’s singing prowess.
