However, when it comes to the entirety of the Netflix library, the streamer still has a long way to go in order to meet their goal. Read More »

One of the Sundance Film Festival’s biggest hits was a little film by a new first-time director that is becoming the indie hit to beat this summer. The Last Black Man in San Francisco follows the footsteps of last year’s searing indictments of gentrification, Blindspotting and Sorry to Bother You, but with the addition of a warm, vibrant color palette and director Joe Talbot‘s lyrical direction.

Back in 2012, Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum) was gearing up to direct a film called Monster Problems, a post-apocalyptic coming-of-age story based on a script by Brian Duffield (Insurgent, Jane Got a Gun).

Levy is still on board all these years later, but he’s shifted into a producer role and found a new director. Learn more about Monster Problems below. Read More »
