A new year brings new entertainment, and tonight comes the first-look at Netflix are already on fire, breaking out some new trailers for 2018's original series. The End of the F**king World is a dark comedy from across the pond, touted with a simple dangle that "this isn’t your usual boy meets girl tale." Based upon the graphic novel by Charles Forsman, this series first arrived in the UK this past fall, a story of "a budding teenage psychopath and a rebel hungry for adventure." See the U.S. trailer below.

Before we go any further, I feel that I must point out the fact that I'm a massive fan of OCEAN'S ELEVEN (2001) and the 1960 film that inspired it, OCEAN'S 11. Back in 2004, one of my many unusual adventures even found me working on the sequel, OCEAN'S TWELVE for one day, where I played a bartender (cut from the film) pouring drinks for Andy Garcia and his crew. Those films and their look inspired me so much, that I borrowed some of he slick vibe to inform my crime-horror project DEATH WALKS THE STREETS (which has always been intended to be a film series). All that said, the idea of an OCEAN'S sequel or spin-off has long-been intriguing, and now we have one in OCEAN'S 8. Directed by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games), the new film stars Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean, alongside a crew that includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Check out the trailer below...

Netflix #StreamTeamOn Friday, December 22, there's a new Netflix Original Series making its debut that's a perfect binge for the holiday break. THE TOYS THAT MADE US is an all-new look at some of the most iconic toy lines of all-time, and they're rolling out the first season with some heavy hitters. While it's not embeddable (yet), a full trailer just launched on Netflix (see it here), and in honor of the release of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, a special sneak-preview of the Star Wars episode was released as well (see that below). In fact, amid all that vintage Kenner glory, you just might see a shot of yours-truly when the episode streams this Friday. I provided them with something that may be in there, but that's just a tiny piece of the overall puzzle. From Hasbro's G.I. Joe & Transformers to Mattel's Barbie and He-Man and The Masters of the Universe, there's a lot of history about to be told, with additional season one episodes set to focus on Hello Kitty, Star Trek and LEGO.

As the saying goes, it's been "one of the worst-kept secrets" in Hollywood the past few weeks, but now it's as official as it can be... a press release was issued this morning to confirm that "The Walt Disney Company to Acquire 21st Century Fox, Inc. after spin-off of certain businesses." Now, for the casual reader that doesn't necessarily follow the business side of entertainment, 21st Century Fox is indeed what you know as 20th Century Fox - the result of a corporate name change that happened back in 2013. Bottom line is that Disney will now control the Twentieth Century Fox Film and Television studios, along with cable and international TV businesses. What's important to note is that 21st Century Fox will separate the Fox Broadcasting network and stations into a newly-listed company that will be spun-off to its shareholders prior to the acquisition. That means that Disney will not take ownership of Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, FS1, FS2 or Big Ten Network. So what will happen for fans of the great content that Disney and Fox have been producing? All signs point to good things. More below...

This may well be one of the most divisive films of 2018... and one that most people didn't even know was in the pipeline. A few years back, when I visited the set of Jingle All the Way 2 in Vancouver, I'd heard that director Alex Zamm was working on adaptations of some classic properties - most notably Marvin the Martian, Hong Kong Phooey and Woody Woodpecker. While the first two don't seem to be moving (some test footage leaked some years back), Woody Woodpecker got the greenlight and became a live-action film starring Timothy Omundson (a guy I've also crossed paths with). Check out the trailer and details below, and look for it on DVD and Digital February 6, 2018 (pre-order here)...

For the past few years, DreamWorks Animation has been quietly growing an empire on the television front, delivering an incredible amount of original content to Netflix. Thus far, much of that content has been in the film-to-television realm, adapting the characters from their feature films into episodic series, and the next one to hit the scene is Trolls. Following the massive success of the recent film and just-released Holiday Special, Trolls: The Beat Goes On! will come to Netflix on January 19, 2018 with season one streaming in its entirety.  Check out the official trailer below, along with some early details on a few new series coming next year, including a pair based on Boss Baby and Captain Underpants!

Earlier this month, I attended a media event at DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, California, during which I was able to get a very early look at some as-of-then-unannounced new series. One such title that was not included in the 2018 sneak-preview is a big one, and one that caught a lot of folks off-guard when the official announcement arrived today. She-Ra: Princess of Power is coming back, and she'll be toplining a new original series that's headed to Netflix!

With the holiday break approaching, families will no doubt be looking for something new to watch.

With state-of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained. While others look up to the stars, this family knows that an infinite number of things shine brightly in the darkness below. The deep is a place where leviathans swim through sunken cities, where pirates lurk amidst floating black markets, and where a mysterious group of Guardians hide long lost secrets. In the spirit of adventure and giving, Technicolor and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a chance to win a cool prize pack from THE DEEP! Immerse yourself in the series below, and then enter to win!

Adam Driver says "Kylo Ren is a Big Christmas Guy"

Written by

This past weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm played host to the global media event for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. The cast and crew gathered in downtown L.A. to meet with press, and one group was an in-house team - namely, THE STAR WARS SHOW. Today their latest episode was released, and hosts Anthony Carboni and Andi Gutierrez sit down with director Rian Johnson, along with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Laura Dern, Oscar Issac, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson, and Mark Hamill. Who knew that Kylo Ren was "a big Christmas guy?" According to Adam Driver, Kylo is all about "the giving." That's not a huge surprise, as you can purchase a Kylo Ren Nutcracker, so that's pretty festive. Check out the latest episode of THE STAR WARS SHOW below...
