high flying bird sequel

Steven Soderbergh‘s High Flying Bird was one of last year’s best movies, featuring a captivating performance from André Holland, playing a sports agent dealing with an NBA lockout. It’s a must-watch movie, but I never expected it to spawn a franchise. But that’s apparently what’s happening, as Holland revealed that there’s a High Flying Bird sequel in the works, and that instead of a lockout, the follow-up might focus on sports being shut down due to the coronavirus.

The Eddy Featurettes

In case Whiplash and La La Land weren’t enough evidence that Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle loves jazz, he has a new Netflix series that will reinforce his passion.

The Eddy is an eight-episode series taking place in various neighborhoods of Paris, following New York jazz pianist Elliot Udo (André Holland of Moonlight) as he runs a struggling club called The Eddy, which features a house band that includes his on-again-off-again girlfriend Maja (Joanna Kuling). Plenty of drama unfolds among these characters and more in Paris, but there’s also a lively jazz soundtrack, which has been teased in The Eddy featurettes that Netflix recently revealed. Read More »

The Eddy trailer

When he was only 32 years old, Damien Chazelle became the youngest person to ever win the Academy Award for Best Director. After winning that prize for La La Land, he directed the Neil Armstrong-centric First Man and then did what most high-profile filmmakers seem to be doing these days: took a trip to the world of streaming. The result is The Eddy, an upcoming Netflix series about Chazelle’s passion/obsession: jazz.

Now a new trailer has arrived, and while the teaser seemed to hint at a series which basked in the inherent romance of musicians playing their hearts out at a Parisian jazz club, this full trailer shows what can happen when flights of fancy come crashing down to reality. Read More »
