Olivia Colman may be the jewel in its crown, but next up on Netflix is nature king David Attenborough... no wonder rivals are rattled For six decades, Sir David Attenborough's epic shows have belonged to all of us for the price of a TV licence. But when the legendary naturalist launches his latest blockbuster, Our Planet, on April 5 – a series that is said to have cost £48 million – you won't find it on the BBC, or on any other terrestrial channel. The only way to watch it will be with a subscription to the streaming giant Netflix. All eight one-hour episodes will be available from April 5, for viewing in any order, at any time, and the audience will be a global one of 139 million subscribers
There will probably never be a better shark movie than Jaws, but there are certainly bigger shark movies than Spielberg's classic. The shark in The Meg, now streaming on HBO, requires more than just a bigger boat to deal with — no, what this shark calls for is Jason Statham, the charismatic action hero of Expendables and Crank fame. Statham is as much of an unstoppable force as the shark itself, resulting in a ridiculous match-up that'll please any viewer looking for a couple hours of mindless, man-eating fun. And yet, for all the deadly, over-the-top action and human shark-bait, The Meg is a surprisingly safe film. How else can you describe a film that had a golden opportunity to open with a
DC Comics' satisfying new film 'Shazam!' takes a family-centric, lighthearted approach to superheroes with Zachary Levi as the man-child do-gooder.
The Fox Studios sign is pictured at the entrance to the lot, Tuesday, March 19, 2019, in Los Angeles. Disney's $71.3 billion acquisition of Fox's entertainment assets is set to close around 12 a.m. EDT on Wednesday. NEW YORK (AP) — The Fox Studio backlot, first built in 1926 on a Century City ranch in Los Angeles, was enormous. Shirley Temple's bungalow still sits on the lot, as does the piano where John Williams composed, among other things, the score to “Star Wars.” A waiter in the commissary might tell you where Marilyn Monroe once regularly sat.
Jordan Peele's “Us” is on its way to scaring up one of the biggest debuts of 2019, with an estimated $67 million from 3,741 North American locations. Should estimates hold, “Us” will be able to claim several milestones: the highest debut for an original horror movie (the biggest launch for any horror pic goes to 2017's “It” with $123 million); the largest debut for an R-rated movie (topping “Ted” with $54.4 million); the second-highest debut of 2019 after “Captain Marvel”; and the third-highest opening day for a horror film with $29 million. The current projection is above earlier estimates, which had placed it in the $38 million to $50 million range, and marks quite a leg up over Peele's last film, “Get Out.” That horror pic debuted to $33 million in 2017 and eventually amassed $167 million Stateside.
Megan explains the difference in commonly-seen beer glasses at restaurants and bars, and which one you should ask for depending on the beer you're drinking. ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Delaware's Dogfish Head Brewing is known for its quirky and off-center beers. So at first glance a new partnership with Kodak doesn't seem all that weird. Dogfish is teaming with Kodak for SuperEIGHT gose, a sour German-style wheat beer that features eight main ingredients and can also be used to process Kodak's Super 8 motion picture film. No joke. “We're comin' at ya with so much juicy flavor with the latest release of our new gose, SuperEIGHT,” Dogfish Head founder and CEO Sam Calagione said in a release. SuperEIGHT gose

Actor Arjun Kapoor has shared that he has competed 60 per cent shooting of the upcoming war drama film "Panipat". Since Arjun started the shooting of "Panipat", he has been keeping his look a secret and he often appears at public events wearing a cap or a hat. Asked if there is any particular reason behind it, he said: "We are hiding my look because Ashutosh (Gowariker) Sir feels that when I'll be presented in the role of Peshwa in front of the audience, that time it should create maximum amount of impact.

Author's note: We're going deep into the Hellboy comic books here, so potential spoilers for the comic books only. Every time a superhero or comic makes the leap to the big screen there are things that get left by the wayside, things that are kind of the same, and then some things that are just exactly what they were on the page. The new Hellboy is no different, and though this is by no means an exhaustive list of all the above, here's everything we learned on the set of the new Hellboy with regard to its comic book basis: Everything that's almost the same Hellboy's origin Though not explicitly an origin story, the origins of Hellboy are retold in the new movie and in a way that is nearly identical,

Writer-director Barry Jenkins follows up his Oscar-winning “Moonlight” with another aesthetically bold literary adaptation, tackling James Baldwin's 1974 novel. Impressive newcomer KiKi Layne plays Tish Rivers, a young New Yorker whose boyfriend Alonzo (Stephan James) is imprisoned for a rape he didn't commit, not long after the couple learns they're about to have a baby. As Tish's parents (played by Regina King and Colman Domingo) exhaust their savings on a lawyer, Jenkins weaves in flashbacks and set pieces, exploring the visual, aural and emotional textures of early '70s New York, from the perspective of multiple generations of working-class black residents.
