Tweet of the Day, You WILL Be Made To Buy Disney+ And Hulu edition.

Disney+ for the cute stuff, Hulu for the edgy stuff. Yeah: Disney now has a majority interest in Hulu. Welcome to the 21st century! Turns megacorps are gonna be a thing, after all.

It’s gonna happen, man. — Sayeth the guy with a blog and no film industry connections. But, seriously, obvious ploy is obvious, no?

Netflix to remake… *Harvey*?

Who ordered this?

There have been many attempts in Hollywood to bring the classic Jimmy Stewart dramedy Harvey to the big screen, the latest being about nine years ago with Steven Spielberg (and Tom Hanks’ name being bandied about) under a Fox/DreamWorks machination. Now Netflix is readying to pull the 6 ft. rabbit out of its hat with writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss who are set to adapt a remake of the 1950 film. Fábrica de Cine, which is in business with Netflix’s highly anticipated Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro mob film The Irishman, is also on board to produce this one.

The new ‘Kingdom’ Korean historical zombie Netflix series trailer.

Looks good.

Also: it’s a series, not a movie.  I had not realized that, the last time.  A series sounds more interesting in this context anyway.

The ‘Outlaw King’ trailer.

I’m surprised I missed this.

Chris Pine! Is! Robert the Bruce!  Believe it or not, that stuff in the Outlaw King trailer may not be entirely inaccurate; Scottish history can be, ah, dramatic at times.  Although it seems to be stopping before the battle of Bannockburn, for some reason.  Guess I’ll find out why when it hits Netflix in November.

Bunch of Netflix/Amazon series I *could* be watching.

Black Mirror, Altered Carbon, Disenchantment, Dragon Prince, Black Lightning, the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel*, Electric Dreams… anybody got an opinion?  Or an alternative suggestion? Obviously, I like the SF genre; but if something is really, really good (and also funny) I’ll think about something more mainstream.  Note: everything on here I can watch without subscribing to anything, so I’m not all that interested in spending more money or anything.

Thoughts?

*…What?  I heard it was good.

Netflix bringing ‘Ghoul’ in August.

This looks promising: Netflix is going to be streaming “its first Indian original horror series” in August:

Based on Arabic folklore, “Ghoul” is set in a covert detention center and follows an interrogator who arrives at the facility to discover that some of the terrorists held there are not of this world. Written and directed by Patrick Graham (“Phir Se”,) and starring Radhika Apte (“Padman”) and Manav Kaul (“Tumhari Sulu”,) “Ghoul” is a co-production between Blumhouse Productions, Ivanhoe Pictures and India’s Phantom Films.

So apparently the new Cloverfield’s on Netflix.

As in, Cloverfield: Paradox dropped direct-to-Netflix last night.  Everybody I’ve seen talking about it liked it, unless they were a critic, in which case they hated it. Anybody seen it yet? I’m already behind on my movie watching and it’s barely February.
