Furiosa Movie

Warner Bros. Pictures will shake up the theatrical distribution model next year by releasing every single one of their movies simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max. However, for those expecting the studio to keep that model going in years to come, they seem to have rebuked that speculation by setting 2023 global theatrical release dates for the Mad Max prequel Furiosa, the Looney Tunes-inspired live-action/animated hybrid Coyote vs. Acme, and the big screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation of The Color Purple.

Oprah Obama

The coronavirus pandemic has ripped through our society, leaving death and disruption in its path. One of the least important changes it has caused is that pretty much every interview now has taken on the same dull, boxy aesthetic because they’re almost always captured using programs like Zoom.

Leave it to Oprah Winfrey, arguably the most famous interviewer in the world, to liven things up. In a new episode of her AppleTV+ series The Oprah Conversation, Winfrey interviewed former President Barack Obama about his new book, his reaction to Joe Biden winning the presidency, and much more, and through the magic of green screen technology, it appears as if they’re both seated in Oprah’s home. Check out a behind the scenes clip below. Read More »

Oprah Winfrey Michael Jackson Special

When Oprah Winfrey was still hosting her daytime talk show, she had the respect and admiration of millions of viewers. That’s because she always shined a light on controversial and sensitive subjects and came away with powerful revelations, moving stories, and challenging perspectives. And she’ll be doing the same with a new TV special that will follow the premiere of the Michael Jackson sexual abuse documentary Leaving Neverland.

Following the premiere of the two-part documentary Leaving Neverland on March 3 and March 4, HBO and OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) will air Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland, a conversation with documentary subjects Wade Robson and James Safechuck, as well as director Dan Reed. Making this conversation even more harrowing is that it was recorded with an audience of sexual abuse survivors and those who have been impacted by it. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

a wrinkle in time early buzz

A Wrinkle in Time has a lot of expectations riding on it. It is Ava Duvernay‘s ambitious passion project, the first non-documentary feature film that the director has tackled since Selma won acclaim and awards love four years ago. It’s an adaptation of a beloved children’s fantasy novel by Madeleine L’Engle. It has a black lead actress (Storm Reid) in a piece of colorblind casting that differs from the novel. And it’s starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine.

So, does A Wrinkle in Time live up to those expectations? Not quite.

The social media embargo for Duvernay’s Disney film has lifted, and reactions are mixed at best and pessimistic at worst. Formal reviews don’t drop until March 7 — two days before the film’s release — but a few people who attended the premiere shared their opinions on the science-fiction movie.
