The series will follow Good Omens stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen as members of a cast of a furloughed West End theatre production as they try to continue rehearsals through video calls at home.

Neil Gaiman‘s comic book series The Sandman has long been one of Hollywood’s white whales — a seemingly unadaptable series following the adventures of the physical embodiment of Dreams that the industry has tried and failed to bring to the big screen for years. But while chatter of the in-development Netflix series has (unsurprisingly) died down, The Sandman will be adapted in another medium for the first time: audiobooks. A Sandman audiobook is set to debut this July, narrated by Gaiman himself and featuring a star-studded cast led by James McAvoy, who takes on the title role of Dream.

The road to a good screen adaptation of a beloved book is paved with good intentions, but often littered with bad executions. But if a show were made of pure good intentions, it would be Amazon’s Good Omens, which is a show eager — even desperate — to do justice to its source material. And thanks to the delightfully absurd performances by stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen and an irreverent Monty Python-inspired touch from director Douglas Mackinnon, it just about succeeds.

Apostle Review

Stepping out of his signature style of riveting action-thrillers, Gareth Evans delivers a delightfully diabolic tale centered around a religious cult in his new film, Apostle.
