We are nearing the end of Ted Lasso's season (only two new episodes!) It seems that the shows have a lot more story threads than they had episode 10, and this is where we are getting close to the season finale of Ted Lasso. Episode 10, entitled No Weddings and a Funeral was solid but not my favorite. I won't spoil the episode, but I will say that I didn't like the way the Ted and Sharon session which we have been waiting for this season was edited together with Rebeccas recounting of a traumatizing event with her father. Hannah Waddingham and Jason Sudeikis were great actors, but the editing of the scenes together slowed down the drama. But! Two weeks from now, new plot twists indicate that a dramatic season finale is on the horizon. I'm ready.
These are the trailers for this week's new releases:
The Tragedy of Macbeth
Joel Coen directs this black-and-white adaptation Shakespeare's Scottish play. Denzel Washington stars as Macbeth and Frances McDormand plays Lady Macbeth. The trailer is too short and it looks amazing. It's also fascinating that the two lead roles in Macbeths are played by actors who are much older than usual. Although I don't usually have an opinion about whether it is better to watch a movie at the theater or at home (which is something I know can be touchy), I feel that an undertaking this large should be seen on the largest screen possible. The Tragedy of Macbeth will be available in theaters on December 25th, and to Apple TV Plus on January 14th.
Stranger Things 4
A teaser for the fourth season of Stranger Things shows us a family that we don't know yet in what seems to be a haunted house from the 1950s. A glimpse is also given of the Stranger Things children (it's been a while, are they still children?) Many years later, they managed to break into the house that was apparently abandoned. What is the story of this house? And what does that have to do in relation to Eleven listening or Hopper in Russia? We'll have to wait until 2022 because that is all Netflix has for us right now.
A slew of trailers, teasers and clips were unveiled at the Tudum event on Saturday. These included the star-studded Dont Look Up and the Army of the Dead prequel Army of Thieves. There were also trailers for season 2 of The Witcher and season 4 of Ozark. Season 2 of Tiger King (it was obvious), and season 2 Bridgerton. Jay Peters and Andrew Webster have compiled a great roundup of all the Netflix trailers.
In an address to fellow Earthlings, the president said that five regular people from different parts of the globe are dealing with an invasion by something other than our Earth. Trailer suggests that alien encounters may not be the first for many of these people. Intrigue! Invasion stars Shamier Anderson, Golshifteh Fahani, Sam Neill and Firas Nassar. Apple TV Plus will release the first three episodes on October 22nd.
Emma Corwin and Josh OConnor won awards for portraying Prince Charles and Princess Diana in Netflix's miniseries The Crown. The series focused on the unhappy marriage between the royal couple. Spencer, however, is focused on Diana's decision to divorce the philandering Charles over Christmas weekend 1991. It's a lot like The Crown. There is some melodrama that fills in the gaps of what may have occurred behind the scenes. Kristen Stewart plays Diana. Spencer will be in theaters on November 5th.
I know what you did last summer
It is unclear why this story needed to be rewritten or how it will translate into a series. But here we are with lipstick-stained threats, a stalker/killer in a hoodie, and young people doing questionable ethical things. This trailer doesn't show a single hook-wielding fishing man, which suggests it isn't taking cues from the classic 1997 film. The series I Know What You Did Last summer will be available on Amazon Prime Video October 15.
