I feel I’m in Ted Lasso withdrawal, you guys; no different exhibits are fairly working for me since I completed it. I simply began season 2 of Servant, although, pondering possibly I wanted a genre-switch. Servant remains to be creepy, and Lauren Ambrose’s Dorothy remains to be each completely unlikeable and completely sympathetic on the similar time, which is a wonderful little bit of character growth. We’ll see how issues go, however likelihood is I’m simply going to re-binge Ted once more.
This week’s trailers are a pleasant combined bag of comedy, teen romance, and spy thriller. Additionally The Rock!
The Map of Tiny Good Issues
So the trailer will get the plain out of the way in which early on— it’s about is a young person caught in a repeating time loop a la “Groundhog Day and Fringe of Tomorrow,” as lead character Mark tells his good friend— however I acquired a really The Fault in Our Stars vibe right here. Mark meets Margaret, additionally caught within the time loop and so they attempt to discover all of the tiny issues that make the day excellent. There’s a twist, in response to the official description (I imply there at all times is), and I hope it’s not that their love is someway doomed as a result of they’re actually lovely. Kathryn Newton and Kyle Allen star in The Map of Tiny Good Issues, which involves Amazon Prime Video February 12th.
Benedict Cumberbatch stars on this film based mostly on the true story of British businessman Greville Wynne, who helped MI6 and the CIA infiltrate the Soviet Union’s nuclear program throughout the Chilly Conflict although he had no prior expertise as a spy. Find it irresistible, I want me some good spy motion, TV simply hasn’t been the identical since The Individuals ended. The Courier is due in theaters March 19th.
Ginny & Georgia
I so recognize when exhibits and flicks get all meta and inform you “sure, we all know this reminds you of that different factor however bear with us, we’re totally different.” Ginny & Georgia is the story of a unusual former teenage mom and her shy, quiet daughter who transfer to a small city in New England. Their names should not Lorelai and Rory, although; Brianne Howey who performs Georgia (the mother) flat out says “we’re just like the Gilmore Ladies however with larger boobs.” Oh-kay? The trailer really jogged my memory extra of Little Fires All over the place, as a result of there are positively some unhealthy shenanigans in Georgia’s previous. Antonia Gentry additionally stars in Ginny & Georgia, which debuts on Netflix February 24th.
Is there anybody extra charismatic than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? I imply wrestling followers used to cheer for him even when he was the heel! I feel it’s the eyebrow, tbh. Younger Rock is the story of the wrestler/actor/athlete in his early years (his dad was additionally a wrestler?!), as he runs for president within the 12 months 2032 (I imply, why not?). Uli Latukefu, who performs The Rock as a young person, bears an uncanny resemblance to the person himself. Younger Rock additionally stars Johnson, Stacey Leilua, and Adrian Groulx. It premieres February 16th on NBC.
