TV and Movie News: Dead Franchises Keep Telling Tales
« on: September 15, 2017, 05:14:20 pm »
Fox just ordered a pilot for a True Lies tv show. Because what we all need is another tv version of a movie that doesn't even need a sequel, let alone an entire series. Though, I guess, compared to some of the movie adaptations, True Lies has ways to turn it into a series. Not really anything that hasn't been done dozens of times already, but at least they're there.
Welcome to my breakdown.
I hope I didn't scare you.

You know inside you feel right at home, here.

Freeform has cancelled Stitchers after 3 (really? 3?) seasons. I haven't watched since the first, even with the appeal of a lesbian Anna Akana joining this most recent season. Fans are angry because apparently the show is ending on a cliffhanger.
Is it Dec 2019 yet? (GAH SO FAR AWAY!)

I kinda like Stitchers, but I'm not all that surprised it's being cancelled. Especially since it's show I kinda like.

It repeated at #1, with $60 million, and is now the highest grossing September release ever ($218 million total). American Assassin finished second with $14.8 million. Jennifer Lawrence tanked with mother! opening to $7.5 million and some scathing word of mouth (despite critics kinda liking it) that will likely kill its legs.

You beat me a few seconds, no joke.  I blame my lack of sleep over the week causing me to sleep in.  But I am saying, "Thank you," for picking up after me.  Just to add on, "Home Again" dipped two spots to fourth with $5.3 million ($17.1 million overall) and "The Hitman's Bodyguard" was also down to spots to fifth with $3.6 million ($70.4 million overall).

With that, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon both come a little closer to joining the EGOT club (they each won Emmys in their capacities as executive producer on Big Little Lies).
"Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere just shared a joyful embrace in the middle of Hollywood Blvd." - Best bird-themed social networking post ever.

"That wasn't so hard, was it?" - Hayden to me after I 'fessed up to being nervous.

Get ready, get set for a second part of "The Deuce".

HBO picked up the freshman porn industry drama for a second season today.  The James Franco-starring drama from David Simon and George Pelecanos from "The Wire" debuted on Sept. 10 and has thus far aired two episodes.

"We are thrilled to continue our creative collaboration with master storytellers David Simon and George Pelecanos," HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in a statement.  "Their unique gift for immersing the audience in their dark and edgy worlds brings a brilliant verisimilitude unlike any other.  With the remarkably talented Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco leading an exceptional cast, we look forward to delving deeper as this captivating story evolves."

The renewal comes as little surprise, as the producers already mapped out how further seasons will go -- Season 2, for example, will jump forward a few years from Season 1's 1971 setting to the late '70s, while the series is scheduled to wrap in the mid-'80s.

Set in and around New York's Time Square, "The Deuce" is about how porn became a billion-dollar business by looking at the pimps, prostitutes, cops, crooks, movie producers and service industry supporters who built it.

"The Deuce" airs on Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.

Well, we should have known it was coming. The CW is currently making plans for a "Riverdale" episode to serve as a backdoor pilot for a Sabrina series. Which means that, yes, magic exists in this Riverdale universe which makes total sense.

If they don't get Melissa Joan Hart to at least do a cameo/small role, then they have failed. I'm not even asking for her to be Sabrina's aunt/guardian, just stick her in there somewhere as total fan service. I'd suggest a teacher that starts up an unhealthy relationship with Sabrina, but Riverdale already did that plot right out of the gate last season.

It could lean either way, in my opinion.  I haven't see anything that indicates Melissa has any resentment about her "Sabrina" past, though I could be wrong and if I am, let me know.  On the other hand, this version of "Sabrina", reports say, would be much darker and involve the occult.  Since Melissa is a very devout Christian, that could present a problem in securing an appearance of any type from her.

That's what we are for! To do crossovers where the Melissa Sabrina from another reality becomes the mentor to the new one, trying to get her to drop her attitude or whatever.
All women are lesbians at heart, my ongoing mission, to prove it.

Sanity is over-rated, but I never believed in it anyway.

"BoJack Horseman", TSSTAB's hilarious and depressing sitcom, will be back for a fifth season, the streaming service announced today.

******* revealed the renewal in a funny video that animates texts from a "Clingy ******* Exec" to the temperamental equine star.  "We would have called but we remember how angry you got last time because we interrupted your nap," says one text message.

"BoJack Horseman" stars Will Arnett as the voice the titular character, a washed-up sitcom horse trying to break a vicious cycle of depression and substance abuse, taking one step forward, two steps back.  Other stars include Aaron Paul from "Breaking Bad", Alison Brie from "GLOW" and comedy podcast icon Paul F. Tompkins.  The series was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg.

No premiere date for Season 5 has been announced yet, but the first four seasons debuted every summer since 2014.

Season 4 premiered on Sept. 8 and is currently available for streaming on TSSTAB.

The Kingsmen are taking over stateside.  "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" debuted at first this weekend with $39 million.  "It" slipped one spot to second but continues to float well with $30 million ($266.3 million overall).

Friend Request opened to $2.4 million in 2,573 theaters. Depending on where the actuals land (Victor Frankenstein was on top at $2.469 million, so if the actuals jump up about $70k, it could pass/drop below the former Harry Potter's bomb), it's looking like the worst opening ever for a movie opening in at least 2,500 theaters.
