Looks like Netflix has a new prestige drama headed our way – can you dig it? I sure hope so, because it’s called The Dig, and it looks like the type of movie where everyone is dressed very well and behaves very properly. That’s not a knock, either – sometimes that sort of movie can be just what the doctor ordered. In The Dig, a widow hires an archeologist to excavate some burial mounds on her estate – and they may or may not contain treasure. I know the “burial mounds” thing makes this sound like a horror movie in disguise, but it’s not. Check out some The Dig first look images below.

Matthew Vaughn is no stranger to taking a beloved property and crafting a fresh, energetic origin story out of it. But this time, with The King’s Man, he gets to do it to his own movies. Vaughn’s Kingsman films, loosely based off of Mark Millar’s comic books, followed a fictional secret service organization that presented a hyperviolent twist on the concept of the gentleman spy. With his upcoming action spy film, The King’s Man, Vaughn gets to explore the origins of that secret service organization while paying homage to classic cinema.
Vaughn took the stage at 20th Century Fox’s New York Comic-Con panel Thursday with the stars of his upcoming film The King’s Man, Ralph Fiennes, Harris Dickinson, and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s what we learned at The King’s Man New York Comic-Con 2019 panel.

When the United States decided to declare war on Iraq, it was because there was apparently evidence that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that he could use to wreak havoc on the world. But as we’ve learned since then, it seems that intelligence might have been manipulated to force a war that didn’t need to happen. And the American people weren’t the only ones who were tricked by their government.
