Masters of the Air TV Series

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks previously brought the stirring World War II drama of Band of Brothers and The Pacific to HBO. But with Spielberg tooting the horn for Apple TV+, it should come as no surprise that his latest war drama collaboration with Hanks is heading to the forthcoming streaming service instead of sticking with cable.

Masters of the Air is a new event limited series heading to Apple+ from Speilberg’s own Amblin Television and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman‘s Playtone production banner. The series is based on Donald L. Miller’s book, which carries the full title of Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought The Air War Against Nazi Germany. Find out more below.

1917 new york comic-con 2019

The reunion of the Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes with the legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins was enough reason to be excited for the World War I drama 1917. A drama that takes place in one single day, 1917 follows two young British soldiers (Dean Charles Chapman and George MacKay) as they’re given an impossible mission of delivering a message deep into enemy territory to prevent a deadly massacre. But one more element would set this war drama apart from the rest: it is a two-hour movie that will be presented in one unbroken, continuous shot. Through a series of camera trickery and clever cuts, Mendes and Deakins are combining their talents to shoot one of the most ambitious war movies yet.

The duo — alongside producer Pippa Harris, co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and stars Dean Charles Chapman, George MacKay — seemed almost tranquil at the 1917 New York Comic-Con 2019 panel this Thursday. Here’s what we learned about the upcoming World War I drama.

With his upcoming action spy film, The King’s Man, Vaughn gets to explore the origins of that secret service organization while paying homage to classic cinema.

Vaughn took the stage at 20th Century Fox’s New York Comic-Con panel Thursday with the stars of his upcoming film The King’s ManRalph Fiennes, Harris Dickinson, and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s what we learned at The King’s Man New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

Jojo Rabbit has a lot to say about hate and love, especially since Taika Waititi‘s anti-hate satirical film is about Nazis.

1917 featurette

Cinephiles and casual movie-goers alike often go gaga over the idea of scenes, and even entire movies told in one continuous shot. Not only is it a technical achievement, but it also looks pretty darn cool, too. Sam Mendes‘ World War I film 1917 is the latest piece of entertainment to rely on this trick, tellings its entire story in one continuous shot. Of course, the movie wasn’t really shot that way, since that’s virtually impossible. But Mendes, cinematographer Roger Deakins, and more have banded together to make the film seem like it’s unfolding in one very long take. A new 1917 featurette highlights the technique.
