The ‘I Am Mother’ Netflix trailer.

Buddy of mine sent me this the other day. I Am Mother looks interesting:

Mind you, I suspect a twist. Or several. Or that the entire trailer is a lie, which is entirely possible these days. It’s so difficult to maintain tactical surprise in entertainment, these days: the reason why the MCU went to such trouble to do so is because they absolutely had to. Remember Terminator 2? I think it was Honest Trailers who pointed out that the great revelation in that film would have had an impact like a hammer if only they didn’t blurt it out in the trailers.

Anyway, I Am Mother is out June 7th.

The ‘Jinn’ Netflix series teaser trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing: I clicked on the video, certain that Jinn was just going to be some stupid foreign language drama about the blindingly insightful revelation that it sucks to be an adolescent all over the world.

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.
