The Big Sick may be the latest entry in the Judd Apatow lifts gifted comics to the next level sweepstakes, but it is very much not a Judd Apatow film.
Written by Kumail Nanjiani and his wife, Emily Gordon, The Big Sick is the mostly true story of how the couple met, fell in love, broke up and would probably never have seen each other again if she hadn’t gotten so sick she needed to be placed in a medical coma.
Z: The Beginning of Everything begins with Zelda Sayre meeting F. Scott Fitzgerald and follows her life in what is being described by the streaming service as ‘a ground-breaking concept: a fictionalized bio series.’
The series follows Zelda as she ‘becomes the original flapper and icon of the wild, flamboyant, Jazz Age in the 20s.’
Amazon has released a new teaser for the series, which premieres on Friday, January 27, 2017. Check it out after the break.
As with everything Woody Allen does, his Amazon Studios TV Series Crisis in Six Scenes is, if not shrouded in mystery, not exactly releasing a lot of details about its content (Marvel must have learned from Woody).
Amazon has released a one sentence series description and seven photos in support of the series and you can find the description and the remaining six photos after the break (click on thumbnails to embiggen). Crisis in Six Scenes premieres on Friday, September 30th on Amazon.
Spike Lee can serve up sharp, subtle satire and he can serve up the blunt-upside-your-head kind with equal facility.
With Chi-Raq, he looks at the moment in time the death toll in the city of Chicago outpaced the death toll on American soldiers in Iraq – and both of his satirical big guns are fully loaded via, of all things, a classic ancient Greek play – Lysistrata, in which the women of Greece withheld sex from their men until they ended the Peloponnisian War.
Check out the cutting first trailer for Chi-Raq following the jump. Chi-Raq is in theaters on December 4th.
As Amazon Studios moves forward with the development of their own movie and TV production, one of their most intriguing properties has just gotten really interesting – master horrormeister Clive Barker has signed on to rewrite Zombies vs. Gladiators.
Set in ancient Rome, the plot finds a shaman, about to die in the Coliseum, casting a spell that results in the creation of the first zombies. Now it’s up to a gladiator to stop a zombie apocalypse!
