News Around the Net (UPDATED)

August 31st, 2021

At long last, here’s the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home:

Looks like Disney & Marvel opted to skip a traditional teaser and jump right into a full trailer.  I can’t believe this movie is only a few months away!

Jon Stewart is returning to TV!  (Sort of.)  Here’s a teaser:

Here’s the first real trailer for FX’s upcoming adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan & Pia Guerra’s comic book series Y: The Last Man:

I loved the comic book series, so I’m interested to see if this show is any good.

This is a wild trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: Visions anthology series:

I’m very curious to see this…

Sad news that author Jonathan Rinzler has passed away at a too-young age.  Mr. Rinzler was the author of numerous incredible books exploring the making of the original Star Wars trilogy, the Indiana Jones films, Alien, Planet of the Apes and many more.  Allow me to recommend The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back as an awesome way to dive into his work.

This is exciting — the complete series of Superman: The Animated Series is finally being released on blu-ray!!  This follow up to Batman: The Animated Series is a terrific show, one of the very best non-comic book depictions of Superman ever made.

Here’s a first look at Kevin Smith’s upcoming Clerks III.  It’s been years (decades) since I loved a Kevin Smith film, but I still have a lot of love in my heart for his early films (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back).  Can he recapture the magic with a new Clerks film?  I’m hoping for the best…

This is fun news: they’re making a documentary series based on the podcast Smartless, hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett.  I love the podcast, so I’m eager to see this documentary series!  (Though, what the heck is Discovery+…?  I must admit I’ve never heard of that streaming service…)

Sign me up to read Mel Brooks’ newly-announced memoir, All About Me! (that’s a great title) when it’s published…!

I’ve loved the past several Mission: Impossible films, and this description of a massive new stunt they’ve cooked up for the seventh film sounds like fun!  I can’t wait to see it!

So, it’s really true, a new Fletch film is actually happening??  Apparently Greg Mottola’s Confess, Fletch has wrapped filming!  Jon Hamm is playing Fletch?  I can’t wait to see this — I really hope it’s good!

Is Francis Ford Coppola finally going to get to make his long-in-the-works film Megalopolis?  I certainly hope so.  I’d love to see it someday…
