The Prom Song

It’s been a very rough year. We’re almost at the end, folks, but if you thought we were going to make it to 2021 without having to hear Meryl Streep rap, you were sorely mistaken. Streep is one of the cast members of The Prom, Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Chad Beguelin, Bob Martin, and Matthew Sklar‘s award-winning, Tony-nominated Broadway musical, and as is par for the course with most stage-to-screen adaptations, there’s a new original song not featured in the Broadway production. It’s called “Wear Your Crown,” and for the most part, it’s light, poppy stuff. And then, more than halfway through the tune, Streep comes in and starts rapping. It’s…something.

The Prom Trailer

It’s been a little while since we had a full-blown musical on the big screen.

But Netflix will help remedy that by sending Ryan Murphy‘s big adaptation of the Broadway musical The Prom to limited theaters and their streaming library on the same day in December, and the first trailer has just arrived. Prepare for a lot of glitz and glamour, folks. Read More »

ratched trailer final

Call me crazy, but when I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, I never once thought, “This movie needs a prequel revealing that Louise Fletcher’s Nurse Ratched is actually a crazy serial killer.” But that’s apparently exactly what Ryan Murphy thought, and since no one knows how to say “no” to Ryan Murphy anymore, here we are with Ratched. The Netflix series has frequent Murphy player Sarah Paulson playing the nurse, and while it certainly looks all kinds of stylish, I can’t help but ask: Why?

What makes a monster? That’s what Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson are seeking to find out with the upcoming Netflix series Ratched. Murphy’s prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest stars Paulson as a younger Nurse Ratched, chronicling how she came to be one of cinema’s most notorious villains. The series has been long in the making, with the Emmy Award-winning showrunner spending a year securing the rights to the character before the project finally got going in 2017. The series is set to finally premiere this September, and Netflix has released the first images from Ratched to drum up interest. See the Ratched first look images below.

Mr. Harrigan's Phone

The Stephen King adaptation renaissance shows no signs of going away anytime soon. Since King is so prolific and pumps out approximately a bajillion books a year, there will always be material to adapt. Case in point: Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, a short story that appeared in King’s recently published collection If It Bleeds, is now becoming a Netflix film. Blumhouse and Ryan Murphy are producing the flick for Netflix, with Saving Mr. Banks filmmaker John Lee Hancock attached to write and direct.

The Politician Season 2

The first season of Ryan Murphy‘s dramedy series The Politician followed the exploits of the ambitious Payton Hobart (Ben Platt) as he campaigned to become student body president in a Santa Barbara, California high school. It was full of satirical political back-stabbing and double-crossing, not to mention plenty of morally and ethically questionable decisions. The end of the first season paved the way for a college-aged Payton to take it to the next level by becoming a young candidate in the New York State Senate race, and it looks like that race is going to get dirty.

The Politician‘s second season picks up where the first season left off as Payton is in the thick of his campaign against Dede Standish (Judith Light), the Senate Majority Leader who now finds herself at the center of a scandal that leaves her vulnerable to defeat. But she has her loyal Chief of Staff, Hadassah Gold (Bette Midler), at her side, and they’re not going to let this kid get the better of them. See how the political mudslinging begins in The Politician season 2 trailer below. Read More »

American Horror Story is one of the most successful anthology series on air today, with each season offering a fresh horror approach from creator Ryan Murphy. But the mega-producer, who has been producing content under a deal with Netflix, is still finding new ways to tell horror stories with a new spin-off series that will double down on the anthology model. Titled American Horror Stories, the spin-off series will consist of hourlong standalone episodes, rather than the season-long horror arcs of the original show.
