Out of everything WarnerMedia could have called their new service, HBOMax seems pretty lame to me. I would have preferred something like WBMax, WBDemand, I don’t know, but HBOMax? We already have HBOGo, HBO Now, and DC Universe. According to someone I spoke with at Warner Brothers, DC Universe is staying put. But HBOMax is going to launch next Spring with over 10,000 Hours of content including Friends, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, a Robust Slate of New Originals, and Programming from Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Looney Tunes and More at a rumored price of $16 or $17.
Apple TV+ upcoming drama series “Truth Be Told” became the first TV series to ever be celebrated at the 2019 Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, Italy, this weekend. After debuting a first look at the show, which explores America’s obsession with true crime, star and executive producer Octavia Spencer was honored with the prestigious Taormina Arte Award. Creator, Writer and Executive Producer, Nichelle Tramble Spellman was also on-hand to present the series.
Does Conan’s Comic-Con tapings guest list. I’m working with TBS and hope to be at one of these tapings. But no guarantees. Conan O’Brien returns to San Diego for the fifth year in a row with a week of special one-hour star-filled shows taped during Comic-Con® International. This year’s shows will feature the stars of Veronica Mars, It Chapter Two, Carnival Row and plenty of super-star surprise guests. There’s a mysterious surprise guest listed for Thursday’s taping so obviously that’s the one I want to go to, but sadly I have interviews.
The world of sports is certainly no stranger to cinema. After all, many hit movies have used sports to tell inspirational stories of athletes overcoming the odds to reach unparalleled levels of success.
All the rumors of DC Universe’s pending death may be premature, if today’s news is any indication. The Streamer is going big, no HUGE for Comic-Con 2019. While Warner Movies will not be hosting hall H panels, the entire DC universe is going to be all over the show and will have over 47 panels! 47! Featuring everything from comics to animation to tv to film and will have the largest booth at Comic-Con. They are bringing the Shazam Thunder! They are even doing the world premiere of Batman: Hush, Friday night at 7pm. Check out the press release for all the highlights!
Ok, this sounds pretty awesome. If you ever wanted to live Batman’s life, DC and AT&T are teaming up to bring Batman fans something truly special for this year’s Comic-Con. In celebration of the 80th anniversary of Batman, DC and AT&T* today announced THE BATMAN EXPERIENCE POWERED BY AT&T, a massive, interactive exhibition that includes the largest-ever collection of Batman-related props, costumes and vehicles. The immersive pop-up museum and gaming-centric installation will transport fans into the crime-fighting world of the Dark Knight and will be open to the public at the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park at 10 a.m. PT from Thursday, July 18th through Sunday, July 21st. No SDCC badge is required to enter this free exhibition. Does this mean we will get the long awaited announcement of the next Batman Game?
I don’t know why people would buy a Blu-ray of a TV Show that’s available on their respective streaming service and this coming from someone who just had to buy a new $500 4K UHD Player. But the critically acclaimed DC Universe series Doom Patrol is coming to Blu-ray, this fall. October 1st to be exact with the Digital release coming August 26th. The set will include all 15 season one episodes and a boatload of extras for $29.99
As much as I hate all these streaming services, we’re getting a lot of awesome product to watch! Warner Media has announced one of their first shows for their new upcoming service and its, wait for it – Gremlins! How will this even work as a series? Part of me is disappointed that it’s going to be an animated prequel series that’s going to take place before the first film. I’ve made my hatred of prequels plain. But I am curious to see what the art style will be and who will be involved. Full press release after the jump.
Today, it’s not unusual for a TV show to depict a less-than-ideal future. This is especially true for Black Mirror, the show that debuted in 2011 on the UK’s Channel 4 but moved overseas later. I don’t speak for anyone but I sure wouldn’t like some of the Black Mirror episodes become reality anytime soon. Back in the day, TV series tended to be a bit more optimistic than the ones today yet there were still quite a few that depicted visions of the future that were quite disturbing and pressing – like the ones we’ll take a look at today.
What up home slices! Your girl is going to the big show. Yes, I will be jetting off to San Diego in two weeks to attend Comic-Con 2019. This may be my last year attending, as next year I’d like to do other smaller events like Cinemacon 2020, the ATX Festival, Tribecca TV, etc. Instead of going through the logistical nightmare of Comic-Con. I managed to book a hotel in Gaslamp so I’m going to be in the thick of things.
