Tales of the City trailer

With his Before trilogy, Richard Linklater proved himself king of making movies that take place years apart and feature the same characters aging in real time. But that’s not the only ongoing fictional story to use that approach.

A new Netflix show called Tales of the City will continue a television story which began as a 1993 adaptation of author Armistead Maupin‘s nine-novel series. Actresses Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis starred in that original TV miniseries and reprised their roles in follow-up shows in 1998 and 2001; now they’re back again in this next edition, picking up with Linney’s character returning to 28 Barbary Lane and reuniting with her family twenty years after leaving them behind.

The Umbrella Academy is just the latest of many superhero series to hit the small screen, as Hollywood breathlessly tries to mine every comic book for a TV show or film adaptation.

But the Netflix series, based on the Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá Dark Horse comic book series of the same name, stands apart from the rest. Ellen Page leads the cast of The Umbrella Academy, which follows a gang of misfit siblings with superpowers who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death. Critics are praising the Netflix series for being a breath of fresh air from the glut of Marvel and DC Comics adaptations, offering a refreshing and bonkers take on the familiar genre.

For now, though, here come the summer runoffs – the films studios had no real faith in and dumped at the dead-end of September. Films like the Flatliners remake, which is now sitting at an uncomfortable 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, as the folks at MovieFone were kind enough to point out. Read more about the Flatliners negative reviews below.
