We’re just over a month away from Christmas, and while that means we’re going to be spending lots of time in theaters catching up on some of the year’s best movies, FX is giving us something else to watch in our downtime at home. The cable channel is airing a “dark reimagining” of A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens’ classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge as he’s guilted into transforming from a penny-pinching, Christmas-hating miser into the world’s best boss. But if you’re looking for a lighthearted version of this story, look elsewhere: Guy Pearce‘s Scrooge adds “sex creep” to his character’s long list of terrible attributes in this one. Read More »

Netflix has become quite a bastion of serial killer documentaries and dramas. They’re really hitting that sweet spot of people who are obsessed with the most terrifying people on the planet. But their latest true crime documentary series comes with a surprising lack of truth to the crime.
The Confession Killer is a new five-part documentary series that chronicles the criminal escapades of Henry Lee Lucas, a man who confessed to killing at least 360 people in the 1980s. The only problem is that despite having a confession and a conviction for many of these crimes, for which Lucas remembered astonishing details, he may not have actually been the killer. Watch The Confession Killer trailer below to better understand this perplexing story. Read More »

So far, the footage released for The Irishman, Martin Scorsese‘s crime epic starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, has played up the film’s macabre sense of humor. And it’s true: The Irishman is often very funny. But it’s also a surprisingly melancholy, somber affair – and that’s what this latest trailer is trying to convey. It’s a much slower burn, playing up the darkness and regret that plagues many of the characters. Watch the latest The Irishman trailer below.

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here. It’s time for a new Cats trailer! When the first trailer for the Tom Hooper-directed musical dropped, everyone stopped what they were doing to marvel at how weird and kind of creepy the movie looked. Rather than dress his cast up in furry cat costumes, Hooper employed digital fur technology to conjure up mutated half-human/half-cat creatures. And now we get to see them in action all over again! Watch the latest Cats trailer below!

Runaways, the teen-centric superhero series that’s been chugging along on Hulu since 2017, is coming to an end – but there are still ten new episodes left. Hulu just dropped the trailer for the show’s upcoming third and final season, and while much of it looks pretty dour, at least Elizabeth Hurley seems to be having an absolute blast playing the evil sorceress Morgan le Fay.

Veep creator and In the Loop director Armando Ianucci got bored with political satire a little while back, mostly because the real politics of today are far too ludicrous and depressing to effectively make comedy out of them. But that’s not stopping the masterful comedy writer and director from starting a new series.
Avenue 5 has Armando Ianucci taking us to space aboard the luxurious space cruise ship of the same name. Hugh Laurie is the captain who seems to love his job, that is until the ship encounters a problem and he’s stuck with a plethora of smarmy socialites who are all the kind of people who immediately need to see a manager. Even on a space cruise, people are total dicks. Watch the Avenue 5 trailer below for a taste of what’s to come. Read More »
