The Message

In 2016, Denis Villeneuve’s emotional science fiction drama Arrival topped /Film’s collective list of the best films of the year. So you’ll have to forgive us if we seem uncommonly excited about the idea of Arrival producer Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps production company reuniting with FilmNation Entertainment for a new sci-fi movie called The Message, which, like Arrival, is an adaptation of an acclaimed short story. Could this mark the first moment of awareness of /Film’s future favorite movie of 2020 or 2021? Read More »

The producers of Stranger Things are returning to the streaming service with a show called I Am Not Okay With This, an adaptation of a comic book about a teen girl with telekinetic powers. (Does that description sound familiar?)

Oh, and the creator of Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World is on board, too. Looks like the algorithm may have found another good match here. Learn more about the new series below.
