It turns out the end of the world is a lot trippier and sexier than we anticipated. But it’s not really the apocalypse as the new Starz series Now Apocalypse implies. It’s just the romantic trials and tribulations of the millennials at the center of the series created by Gregg Araki and executive produced by Steven Soderbergh that seem world-ending — and peppered with an odd amount of hallucinations and monsters. Watch the Now Apocalypse trailer below.

Director Steven Soderbergh was “retired” once, but those days are long in the past. Now, he has a new working relationship at Netflix that is kicking off with his latest film, a sports drama that threatens to break the system that is professional basketball.

It has become a tradition for Steven Soderbergh to release a list of everything that he watched throughout the preceding year, encompassing feature films, television shows, and short films, and he certainly didn’t slow down his viewing habits at all this year, even if he maybe spent too much time watching the Winter Olympics in February last year.
Last year’s list from Steven Soderbergh features no less than nine viewings of Ocean’s 8, and since the movie didn’t come out until June 5, 2018, it should come as no surprise that he watched the movie another three times leading up to its release. Viewing of his own work also included a cut of the sports drama High Flying Bird, which was surprising since he watched it less than a month after production started. Also included is The Laundromat towards the end of the year, Soderbergh’s movie about The Panama Papers.
As for the rest of what Steven Soderbergh watched, you can find out more below. Read More »

Gary Ross, director of Pleasantville and The Hunger Games, assembled a killer cast of kickass women to relaunch the Ocean’s 11 franchise. The result is Ocean’s 8, a new heist movie that doesn’t reboot the series, but rather branches off from it to create a whole new story. Ross and co-writer Olivia Milch took the world created by Steven Soderbergh in his Ocean‘s films, and rebranded it with a new perspective.
