McG, director of the Charlie’s Angels films, Terminator: Salvation and more, is set to turn James Cameron’s 1994 action-comedy True Lies into a TV series for Disney+. Yes, really. While a True Lies series may not seem like an obvious choice for Disney’s streaming service, the House of Mouse owns the title now, and damn it, they’re going to make use of it. And in case you were wondering, yes, James Cameron is aware of this, and gave McG his blessing. More on the True Lies TV series below.

Stranger Things is a huge hit for Netflix, so it makes sense that they’d want to try to recreate that success elsewhere.

The aforementioned kids banding together to save the day while putting their lives together? Check. It’s all here. Also here: Charlie’s Angels director McG! Watch the Rim of the World trailer below.

Hey, remember McG? The director of Charlie’s Angels, Terminator: Salvation and other movies that really don’t hold up well, if they ever held up at all? Well he’s back, and now he’s working within the freeing world of Netflix! His latest film, the horror comedy The Babysitter, will hit Netflix this month, and you can catch your first glimpse of the film now. The Babysitter trailer is below!
Though Terminator 2: Judgment Day is obviously the more acclaimed and beloved collaboration between director James Cameron and star Arnold Schwarzenegger, there is still plenty of love for the action comedy True Lies out there. The film has inexplicably yet to be released in high-definition, and you can’t even find it to download or stream anywhere. Thankfully, James Cameron says that will change sometime in the near future, but we don’t know when.
In the meantime, it looks like we may get a new version of True Lies on television before the original movie ends up available in an HD format. James Cameron is executive producing a TV series reboot of True Lies in the works at 20th Century Fox Television, but unfortunately, there’s one name involved that makes us a little less excited about this prospective TV show.

The good news is, Sony Pictures has officially given a 2019 release date to the film. The potentially decent news is there’s a new writer on board.

There was a slight sense of dread when Fox announced their Lethal Weapon television series. When it comes to film to TV adaptations, shows like Fargo are the exception, not the rule. These adaptations rarely transcend their predecessor or take the story in a new direction, and Lethal Weapon does stumble in that regard. The pilot is, however, far from the misfire some people predicted after we saw the off-putting trailer for the show. Its quality is inconsistent, especially when it comes to the jokes, but Lethal Weapon, for what it is, is just fine.
Below, read our Lethal Weapon Comic-Con reaction.
