The Breaking Bad movie, which is still mostly shrouded in secrecy, is heading to Netflix. The streaming service will first debut the film, which has Aaron Paul returning as Jesse Pinkman. After Netflix, it will head to AMC, the network that aired Breaking Bad. This is a big reversal from the past: AMC had it first, of course, and then the series became even more popular on Netflix. It’s a sign of how much has changed in the entertainment landscape, as streaming becomes more and more prevalent. Read More »
Late last year, we learned about a new Sesame Street movie in development. The project was intended to be the first theatrically released big screen adaptation of the popular children’s television show since Elmo in Grouchland in 1999, so it’s going to be a big deal.

The Sopranos creator David Chase has answered a very pressing question regarding his Sopranos prequel movie, The Many Saints of Newark: will we see Tony Soprano in the film? The answer – yes.
