It’s not just a fun line from the franchise: Tom Cruise really does feel the need for speed in Top Gun: Maverick.

But director Ava DuVernay (Selma, Middle of Nowhere) is shining a light on the horrors of the young men’s case and their eventual exoneration in When They See Us, a Netflix limited series which has just released a new featurette that includes interviews with DuVernay, the actual survivors, and the actors who portray them.

Looking forward to John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum? That’s a rhetorical question, because the answer is obviously yes. And you absolutely should be: in his review for /Film, Chris Evangelista called the film “a bone-cracking, horse-kicking, dog-biting, book-smashing, ax-throwing action masterpiece.”
