Lin-Manuel Miranda delivered what may very well be the best Broadway musical in years with his hip-hop take on the life of Alexander Hamilton. But before Hamilton became the sort of hit that most people can only see if they’re lucky enough to win a lottery drawing, Miranda had another successful show with In the Heights, the Tony award-winning musical about a Dominican-American neighborhood in Washington Heights, New York. And it’s that musical — not Hamilton, sorry — that’s making the leap to the big screen.
It was reported last week that foreign distribution rights were being shopped around Cannes for Martin Scorsese’s long-developing mob drama The Irishman — a project that’s been gestating for so long that we started to think it might not ever happen. But STX Entertainment has snatched up the rights to distribute the film overseas, which means that The Irishman is finally happening after all.
With whatever insanity seems to be going on at Warner Bros., today doesn’t seem so good for the film industry. At least we get to see the first teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tomorrow, but until then, here’s some more disappointing news for you, this time from your ol’ reliable streaming pal Netflix.
While most fans can agree that Suicide Squad looks like a fairly entertaining antidote to the usual blockbuster superhero fare, at least one part of David Ayer’s super-villain team-up remains divisive. You already know which part that is: Jared Leto’s tattooed, chrome-grilled Hot Topic take on Batman’s arch-nemesis The Joker, aka the Clown Prince of Crime. However you feel about Leto’s Joker aesthetic, it’s certainly different from and incomparable to any previous iteration of the character — though Leto does have a couple of wacky comparisons in mind.
We lucked out this month when only a handful of titles expired from Netflix, but even more (lots more) movies and TV shows are leaving the service next month, including favorites like The Professional, Let the Right One In and M*A*S*H (the series). Read on for our guide to what’s expiring from Netflix Instant in April.
It's a miracle! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2 is hitting Netflix next month, along with the debut of new original series The Ranch and Kong: King of the Apes. In addition to the streaming service's latest original offerings, lots of television shows and movies are arriving, including everything from new favorites to old classics. Read on for our guide to April's new Netflix Instant releases.
Like last year’s Omaze charity campaign for Star Trek Beyond, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s partnership with the organization has yielded some similarly charming results. The latest video promoting the charity drive features Ben Affleck surprising fans during the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, with the actor hiding out in the new Batmobile and interacting with the crowd — and throwing some shade at Superman, obviously.
Much has been made of the diversity in the new era of Star Wars, with J.J. Abrams smartly casting the franchise’s first black and female leading characters in John Boyega’s Finn and Daisy Ridley’s Rey. They weren’t the only diverse part of The Force Awakens, which boasted a noticeably varied assortment of genders and ethnicities in its supporting and extras casting, but many fans are still wondering when — or if — we might see an openly gay character in the newly inclusive franchise. According to J.J. Abrams, it will happen, and soon.
There have been rumors since last fall that one particularly slimy character from the original Ghostbusters film would be returning for Paul Feig’s new film, seemingly confirmed by an IMDb credit. But then Feig went and did what J.J. Abrams tried to do with that whole Khan / Star Trek Into Darkness thing — he flat-out denied it, even though this was a pretty viable rumor about a character we all sort of expected would appear. Guess what? The rumor was true, and Ghostbusters star Michael K. Williams has confirmed it himself.
In addition to all the great new stuff hitting Netflix Instant in March, several titles will be exiting the service. Now's the time to stop procrastinating and watch these movies before they leave the service — perhaps for good. Lucky for you, Netflix isn't letting too many titles expire in March, and we even have a few alternatives to recommend.
