paramount plus free episodes

Paramount+ is here, bringing yet another streaming service into an already crowded market. To be fair, Paramount+ isn’t entirely new – it’s a rebranding of CBS All Access, with even more stuff. But will it find subscribers in a world that’s already oversaturated with studios launching their own streaming services? Time will tell! For now, in the spirit of drawing in viewers, Paramount+ has released a series of premiere episodes of various shows directly to YouTube, and we’ve gone ahead and rounded them up below.

the stand images

I am a fan of all things Stephen King, so it gives me no pleasure to tell you that The Stand, the upcoming CBS All Access miniseries based on King’s massive apocalyptic novel, looks kind of blah. To be fair, I haven’t seen it yet, and I am hoping for the best! But every bit of promotional material released in anticipation of the upcoming premiere has been underwhelming. Case in point: new The Stand images arrived today, and they’re either bland or downright silly, depending on which image you’re looking at.

The Stand Ezra Miller

Here’s a surprise: you know that upcoming miniseries adaptation of The Stand? The one that premieres next month? Well, it turns out that Ezra Miller has a part in it, and it’s been kept a secret all this time. Miller is playing The Trashcan Man, a schizophrenic pyromaniac who is drawn towards Randall Flagg, the evil supernatural figure who rises up in the wake of an apocalyptic plague. Matt Frewer played the character in the 1994 miniseries adaptation of the Stephen King novel.

When Stephen King penned The Stand in 1978, which follows a group of survivors trying to build a new society in the wake of a deadly pandemic, he probably didn’t predict that a limited series adaptation of his apocalyptic fantasy novel would come out in the midst of a pandemic in 2020.

If the real pandemic hasn’t burned you out on deadly viruses forever, good news! The Stand remake now has a premiere date.

the stand first look

Director Josh Boone loves Stephen King. In addition to giving the prolific horror author a small role in his first film, Stuck in Love, Boone has dedicated the past half decade to adapting King’s work. One of those adaptations, a film version of the novel Revival, didn’t come together. But the other, an adaptation of King’s massive The Stand, will be a 10-episode miniseries on CBS All Access.

We recently spoke to Boone about his upcoming X-Men film The New Mutants, but he also supplied us with updates on The Stand and told us what went down with Revival. Constant readers of King will be happy to know that Boone describes his touchstones for the Stand miniseries as being both Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone, a combination that, somehow, feels just about right.
