Contrary to popular belief, Quibi has not deleted itself from existence out of sheer embarrassment…yet. The young streaming platform is still around, but with apologies to The Most Dangerous Game and every other thing Quibi has produced so far, the service desperately needs a big crossover hit – and Ride Along and Central Intelligence star Kevin Hart just might be its savior.
A new Quibi series called Die Hart stars Hart as a fictionalized version of himself who tires of being the comedic relief and wants to play an action star for once. But when that opportunity finally comes along, it comes with a catch – Hart has to attend action star school, which is overseen by a lunatic played by John Travolta (Face/Off, Pulp Fiction). Check out the first trailer below.

A decade before Josh Trank’s disastrous Fantastic Four film hit theaters, director Tim Story tackled Marvel’s First Family in a colorful, breezy, largely forgettable comic book movie. He directed a sequel two years later and has since been out of the superhero realm altogether, but now it looks like he’s found his re-entry point.
Story is currently in negotiations to direct Night Wolf, which will reunite him with his frequent star Kevin Hart and aims to put a new spin on cinematic superhero storytelling.

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.

Just one week ago, Sony Pictures had a sudden problem with their action comedy The Man from Toronto starring Jason Statham and Kevin Hart. After creative differences came to a head between Statham and the studio, the Hobbs & Shaw star left the production only a few weeks before shooting was slated to begin.
