The George Carlin documentary on HBO looks amazing (see the trailer, below) – but this article from LA Magazine gives additional insight into the impact the comic had on the “business” of stand-up comedy and social/political in the country.
All in all, really great stuff.
Jordan Peel’s final trailer for NOPE is a wild, alien-filled ride and creepy as f**k.
Interested in watching the PREDATOR prequel, PREY when it comes out later this year? Here’s how to do that. The project is produced by 20th Century Studios and will be streaming on Disney+.
Netflix’s naughty, “adults-only” Marilyn Monroe biopic (rated NC-17) stars KNIVES OUT’s Ana de Armas as Marilyn. It looks like the film will debut on Netflix in September (that’s the latest news, anyway). Here’s a summary of everything known about the project as of today (early June). (h/t Timeout.com)
Ever wonder why Chris Evans is the voice of the “real” Buzz Lightyear instead of Tim Allen? The story behind the voice casting is on movieweb.com.
Pixar’s LIGHTYEAR hits theaters in just over a week.
For PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN fans, here’s a great story about a model-building fan who spent ten months recreating the “Flying Dutchman” ship. The project, which took around 300 hours to complete, is a model-building masterpiece.
For LORD OF THE RINGS fans, here’s the latest news about the new Middle Earth series in production for Amazon Prime.
THE RINGS OF POWER will be here soon and promises to avoid the pitfall of most prequel series by focusing on new adventures, new characters, and building the universe rather than trying to connect the dots and provide more backstory to already established characters.
It looks as if the series will consist of only five seasons. (h/t Nerdist.com)
That’s it for today.
