News Around the Net

I am still saddened by the death, a few weeks ago, of Rene Auberjonois, who played Odo on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  Mr. Auberjonois was an amazing actor.  Deep Space Nine is my favorite of all the Star Trek series, and Odo was one of the best characters.  Coming so soon after the death of Aron Eisenberg, who played Nog, this is such sad news.  Here’s Mr. Auberjonois’ obituary from The Washington Post.  And here’s a beautiful remembrance, written by his co-star (and on-screen soul-mate) Nana Visitor.

This first trailer for Wonder Woman: 1984 looks great!!

I dig the nineteen-eighties vibe! The action looks terrific.  Gal Gadot seems spectacular as always.  I can’t wait to see more of Kirsten Wiig’s character.  I’m intrigued by the hints as to how they brought Steve Trevor back.  (I’m assuming he’ll die again at the end, right?)  It’s going to be a long wait until summer for this one…!

And here’s a great new trailer for Jason Reitman’s new Ghostbusters film:

Wow, when that “call it fate…” line from the original 1984 film plays, I got chills.  OK, I must admit, I’m intrigued!  I wish we’d gotten another movie with the great all-female cast Paul Feig assembled for his version — if only to stick it to all the misogynistic haters.  But, failing that, this sounds like an interesting approach to take with a sequel.  Jason Reitman is a terrific director, and seeing as his father, Ivan Reitman, directed the first two Ghostbusters films, Mr. Reitman feels like the right person to help a new one!  I’m eager to see what he’s put together!  Here’s more interesting new info on Jason Reitman’s upcoming film.

Here’s our first look at Christopher Nolan’s next film, Tenet:

I don’t know what the heck the film is about, but a new Christopher Nolan film always has my interest.

Here’s an energetic first look at the film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights:

That looks great!  I never saw the show, but I’m excited for this film version.

There is no world in which I will be seeing the Cats movie.  But I am fascinated by the studio’s decision to replace the version that was released to theaters with a new version of the film with updated/fixed visual effects.  Has that ever before happened?  Read the story here.

Buckle up and set aside some time to enjoy this amazing Party Down reunion.  I adore that little-seen show.  (Click here for my review of season one, and here for my review of season two.)  If you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and remedy that immediately.  You won’t be disappointed, I promise!!
