Plenty of industries are hurting because of the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes entertainment. But while movies and TV shows are starting to get back into production, live stand-up comedy shows are still mostly non-existent because gathering a bunch of people in a single room to open their mouths and guffaw incessantly isn’t the smartest movie when there’s a contagious virus kicking around. But Netflix recently put together a little video to hold us over with some of their biggest comedy stars.
Netflix asked comedian Neal Brennan to check in with some of his fellow comics like Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, John Mulaney, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and many more. Brennan wanted to provide some levity not just for the comedians stuck at home without an audience, but also for their fans who miss seeing the on stage, so he asks them all about their favorite jokes, comics, previous jobs, and more.

Quibi is still on track to debut on April 6, even in the face of a lawsuit trying to stop them, bringing a cavalcade of new movies (in chapters) and TV shows that you’ll be able to stream to your phone. You probably won’t be watching this stuff on-the-go as Quibi originally intended, at least not while the coronavirus outbreak is still spreading across the globe, but you can still check them out from the comfort of your own home. Plus, T-Mobile will let you get a free Quibi subscription for a year
On top of that, we have two new trailers for Quibi programming, one with Chance the Rapper rebooting the prank show Punk’d that once thrived at MTV, and the other a Jennifer Lopez-produced series called Thanks a Million, bringing some much needed heart-warming kindness to the table by having a celebrity or public figure giving $100,000 to an unsuspecting individual who must pay it forward to help others in their community.

This summer will bring Cars 3 to theaters, but it’s just one of two new movies from Pixar Animation hitting the big screen this year. In fact, when Cars 3 arrives in theaters next week, it will come with a new trailer for Pixar’s 2017 release, the music-infused, Mexican-inspired animated adventure Coco.
Ahead of the new trailer, Pixar Animation has announced the full, all-Latino voice cast for Coco.

This is kind of a catch-all casting break, as it goes all over the map. I’d love to tie the four stories that follow to a theme beyond ‘these people are all in new movies,’ but if that theme exists, I’m afraid it escapes me now. So, after the break you’ll find:
- Sienna Guillory appears to be confirmed to return as Jill Valentine in the fifth Resident Evil film,
- comedian Gabriel Iglesias will spin records (or CDs, more likely) in Soderbergh’s Magic Mike,
- Olivia Wilde takes what formerly belonged to Jennifer Garner,
- and James Hong will play Ryan Reynolds, sort of, in R.I.P.D.
