That includes whether or not the film will head for a theatrical premiere, or bow on Disney+, streaming home to Lucasfilm’s “The Mandalorian” and the upcoming Obi-Wan series spinoff with Ewan McGregor (production last month was shifted to 2021 amid rumored creative conflicts). The report of the new “Star Wars” project also has yet to reveal whether Dillard, also a writer, will actually direct should the movie advance.
This would mark Lucasfilm’s latest foray into a “Star Wars” feature since “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
At least not in the way that documentary participants tend to. It’s an unfortunate fact that puts the Netflix series “Babies” at a bit of a disadvantage — making a six-part series about toddlers means that it’s impossible to get traditional input from its main subjects. What “Babies” chooses instead to fill that time is an unexpected blend of toddler reaction shots and an overestimation of the rousing nature of peer-reviewed studies on adolescent behavior.
At the outset, “Babies” touts that it will follow the development of a select, cross-continental group of infants as they develop from their opening days after birth through their many early developmental milestones. One by one, each successive newborn is introduced, along with their parents, spread out mainly across England and rural New England.
What comes to dominate most of “Babies” is a science-heavy dose of “tell, not show,
The premium cable giant released the following statement early Friday afternoon: “We discussed with the producers and felt limited series was the most accurate representation of the show and any possible future installments.”
The move seems strategic but not surprising for HBO, who benefits from the category adjustment on several levels. In recent months, “Succession” has positioned itself as the Emmy frontrunner for drama series, where “Watchmen” likely would have stood in fierce competition come September. Further, after the “Big Little Lies” brouhaha, where the first season was sold as a limited series, even as most everyone involved was bending
Germans don’t like it when you are late.
Thursday night’s Berlinale opening ceremony was held at the grand Film Palast, but I had to watch it on another latecomer’s iPhone. Because the ceremony was live, the ushers wouldn’t let anyone in the theatre until after the lengthy introductory remarks. I eventually recovered my seat, after a stern lecture from a young usher. Later, I found out that Rissenbeek and Chatrian — newcomers to the spotlight — were overshadowed by Prof. Monika Grutters Mdb, the Minister of State for Culture, who is in charge of this festival. She used her time to make a political statement,
And the gang’s all here! Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will return to the show’s original soundstage, Stage 24, on the Warner Bros. Studio lot in Burbank to revisit the NBC sitcom. The special, along with all 10 seasons of the series, will debut exclusively on HBO Max, the new streaming home for “Friends,” which Netflix dropped in late 2019 after a five-year run.
“Guess you could call this the one where they all got back together — we are reuniting with David, Jennifer, Courteney, Matt, Lisa,
Created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, “Gentefied” was ushered to the Netflix screen with the help of executive producer America Ferrera, who has a small cameo as a housing lawyer. Ferrera has been involved since the show’s digital days, and right from the jump,
There wasn’t much original in Bell and Menear’s first crack at the creepy-doll horror genre, but “The Boy” had a sense of humor and a grasp on its wackily warped mythology that earned a few real chills and a couple of genuine laughs. None of that for “Brahms: The Boy II”; instead,
Adopting its title from the leading actress’s actual name, Costa’s newest feature, watered down to a simplistic description, depicts a woman who immigrates to Portugal as she seeks to come to terms with the death of her recently departed husband, a plight that ropes in a priest combating a spiritual crisis.

With a cast led by Jackman, plus TV mainstays Allison Janney (both an Emmy and Oscar winner) and Ray Romano (also an Emmy winner), it’s an enviable ensemble, all directed by Finley, who last helmed the hit indie dark comedy “Thoroughbreds.” Jackman plays Dr. Frank Tassone, the superintendent of the Roslyn School District in Long Island,
However, Here and there, “Minamata” tells a bracing story of corporate malfeasance and bracing advocacy for the underclass, but even the occasional poignant observation can’t salvage a movie trying this hard to tug every heartstring at its disposal.
The tale of Smith’s final, crowning achievement in a storied career holds plenty of appeal in the opening act. New York, 1971: Smith’s already out of the game. Once a celebrated WWII photographer, he’s devolved into a hard-drinking cyclone of resentment and self-pity. Estranged from his adult kids and strapped for cash, he begs Life magazine editor Bob

“Star Trek: Picard” has flipped the script. So often in genre storytelling a female supporting character’s death is used simply as a way of adding to the experience and personality of a male protagonist. In “Stardust City Rag,” the latest episode of “Picard,” the roles are reversed. Following an even more shocking earlier murder, Bruce Maddox (John Ales), the robotics expert everyone has been seeking for the first five episodes is killed by his lover and protégé, Agnes Jurati (Allison Pill).
“For a lot of reasons, it made sense that Bruce Maddox would not make it through this episode,” episode writer and supervising producer Kirsten Beyer said. “The most important part was Jurati’s relationship to him and what it says about how committed she is to the mission she’s been assigned.”
Rather than just adding another new character in a
