Even though the United States has made a lot of progress when it comes to giving members of the LGBTQ community the respect and equality they deserve, there are still plenty of places with small town mindsets who need a little push in the right direction. That’s exactly what happens in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix movie The Prom when a teenage girl (newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman) wants to bring her girlfriend (Ariana DeBose) to the prom in her small Indiana town, but the PTA board votes against it.
Who will stand up to fight this injustice? It’s Dee Dee Allen (Meryl Streep) and Barry Glickman (James Corden), two Broadway stars reeling from a recent flop who are looking for a way to drum up some attention and give their careers a bit of a boost. With some help from their friends Angie (Nicole Kidman) and Trent (Andrew Rannells), they’re off to spark some publicity with a lot of singing and dancing. If there’s one thing that will convince Indiana folk to embrace the LGBTQ community, it’s the power of musicals, right? Read More »
It’s been a little while since we had a full-blown musical on the big screen. Unfortunately, with studios still hesitant to send movie to theaters due to the coronavirus, that will probably be the case for a little while longer. But Netflix will help remedy that by sending Ryan Murphy‘s big adaptation of the Broadway musical The Prom to limited theaters and their streaming library on the same day in December, and the first trailer has just arrived. Prepare for a lot of glitz and glamour, folks. Read More »
In 1968, playwright Mart Crowley made history when he premiered the Off-Broadway play The Boys in the Band, a drama that revolves around a group of gay men who gather for a birthday party in New York City. Hailed as a groundbreaking portrayal of gay life, the play was adapted into a feature film directed by William Friedkin in 1970, which was also considered a milestone in queer cinema as one of the first major American films to revolve around gay characters. Now, following a Tony-winning Broadway revival in 2018, The Boys in the Band is being brought to Netflix by Ryan Murphy. Watch The Boys in the Band trailer below.

Showtime is ready to take you back to 1987, where Wall Street saw the worst stock market crash in its history, with Black Monday. The new series looks a little like The Wolf of Wall Street Meets The Big Short: The TV Show, and that might just be enough to draw in a crowd. Watch the very vintage Black Monday trailer below (which is very NSFW), featuring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, and Regina Hall.

HBO’s comedy series Girls is nearing an end to its sixth and final season. We’re not sure where the stories of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) will end up, but we won’t have to wait for long. Though this is the final season of the show, Lena Dunham has said that she would love to bring these characters back for a movie, but not until enough time has passed for them to be in a completely different place in their lvies.
That brings us to one Girls project that’s even further down the road. In honor of the final season of Girls, the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live decided to round up the four stars of the HBO series to put together a pilot for an update of The Golden Girls, featuring Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna living together like Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty did in the original version of the series.

The new season of Girls is coming next February, and the full trailer has arrived, teasing what’s in store for these New Yorkers with the biggest first world problems you’ve ever seen. The trailer says “Girls grow up and grow apart, but friendship is forever complicated.” Though from the looks of this trailer, I don’t really see any evidence of any of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) growing up at all.

For a comedy, Girls‘ second season was pretty damn grim. Not meth empire / zombie apocalypse grim, perhaps, but dark nonetheless. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) skipped town, Marnie (Allison Williams) got fired, Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) struggled with her first real relationship, and Hannah (Lena Dunham) had a full-on nervous breakdown. But it looks like their fortunes are changing for the better in Season 3.
The first full-length trailer feels like a return to the lighter tone of Season 1, in contrast to the melancholy of Season 2. All of the women are still works in progress — that’s why we love them — but they seem to be better off than they were the last time we saw them. As Marnie puts it, “I am okay. I may not seem okay and I may not be okay now, but I am, like, okay.” Watch the trailer after the jump.
