Oh, to be in New York during the weekend of May 3rd and 4th. Though the date May the 4th holds a special place in my heart for a whole other reason, my heart will always holds a place for kung fu cinema. Which is why the idea of watching six 'classics' of the genre in one day is delightful and dizzying to me. For a measily $35 you get six yet to be named kung fu cinematic kicks to the face that Saturday. Cannot bear to do all six? Wuss. Fine, do only three, you big baby, for $20. No one but the programmers know what six films will roll out that day but rest assured it will be glorious! But also note that on Friday, May 3rd there is the opening screening of Dragon Princess, starring Sonny Chiba and his death dealing daughter Shihomi Etsuko. Follow that up at a party afterwards with 1$ beers and you are roundhouse kicking off the weekend right. Link for event tickets is after the announcement! 8TH OLD SCHOOL KUNG FU FEST - SECRET CHAMBER EDITION Subway Cinema’s … [Read more...] about New York! The OLD SCHOOL KUNG FU FEST is Back This May!

Hey readers, you may know me as the weekend editor with a penchant for dirty jokes and the robot apocalypse, but I’m here to talk to you about something near and dear to my heart. No, it’s not making fun of Elon Musk: it’s a web series I wrote and directed called Thank You Come Again. Thank You Come Again is the first web series I wrote and directed, and it follows Riley (Carolyn Jania) an uptight academic who starts a new job at the Pleasure Chest, where the colorful, queer team of misfits introduces her to the irreverent world of the sex toy industry. It’s based on my previous job, doing social media and working as a sex educator for the Pleasure Chest, and it was filmed in their West Hollywood store. On Saturday, April 6th, episode two will be playing at New York’s CineKink Film Festival as part of the Work It! shorts program. It will be playing at 1pm at the Anthology Film Archives, which is a pretty dope place to check out and support. So, why should … [Read more...] about Hey New York: Come See Thank You Come Again at CineKink
Will Smith will apparently not be returning for The Suicide Squad, due to scheduling conflicts. Instead, Idris Elba is in talks to take on the mantle of Deadshot for the film, which will function as a soft reboot of the first film. David Ayer’s first attempt to bring the Squad to the big screen drew in box office numbers and acclaim for Margot Robbie’s turn as Harley Quinn but for the most part was not well received. James Gunn has been brought on to course correct. There have been a few frantic tweets and Reddit posts that claim the recasting is a sign that everyone from the Snyder era of the DCEU except Robbie, Gal Gadot, and Jason Momoa, are not safe and might be recast. Let’s probably lay these worries to rest: an actor’s schedule not working out for a film he wasn’t necessarily planning on returning to does not mean that we have to bid farewell to everyone else in the franchise. Deadline reported that Smith’s parting from the franchise was … [Read more...] about Things We Saw Today: New Rumors Say Idris Elba is Replacing Will Smith in The Suicide Squad

Breaking through in a Peak TV world of more than 500 scripted originals is a challenging task. That's why top showrunners and stars continue to be in high demand as broadcast, cable and streaming platforms look to cut through the cluttered landscape with familiar faces. Spinoffs and reboots are also in high demand, as most come with a preexisting viewership that reduces costs associated with marketing and promotion. Here, in a bid to navigate the Peak TV waters, THR picks the 19 most-anticipated new shows coming in 2019. Note that the below shows are confirmed to air in 2019. While many more high-profile shows from top creators with big-name stars have been picked up across multiple outlets, few have been locked in to air in 2019. (Bookmark THR's handy guide for key premiere — and series finale — dates as most of the below are still awaiting scheduling.) Modern Love (Amazon, awaiting premiere date) The individual episodic anthology is based on The New … [Read more...] about The 19 Most-Anticipated New Scripted TV Shows of 2019
