We’ve seen some pretty good Martin Scorsese films in the past, but The Irishman starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci will be a bit different from all of them. That’s because it will be the first of his films to be ever released directly to Netflix. The film marks the director’s return to the world of gangsters and mobsters as it will “journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime in post-war America.”
We found out earlier this year that a sci-fi anthology series titled Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams was coming to Amazon from Ronald D. Moore and Bryan Cranston.
Now Amazon has set an official premiere date for the anthology, which features an excellent cast including Cranston, Steve Buscemi, Greg Kinnear, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Timothy Spall, Maura Tierney, Janelle MonÃ¡e, Richard Madden, Holliday Grainger, Mel Rodriguez, Liam Cunningham, Vera Farmiga, Juno Temple, Jack Reynor, Essie Davis, Benedict Wong, Geraldine Chaplin, David Lyons, Annalise Basso, Mireille Enos, and Rachelle Lefevre.
HBO’s True Blood series was a phenomenal hit by any measurement. Based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, they follow the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse, a telepath in Louisiana who possesses an extraordinary lack of self-preservation. Constantly in danger, she aligns herself with and against supernatural creatures like vampires and werewolves, all the while seeking to find her place in the world. Sookie, played by Anna Paquin in all seven seasons, finally seems to find herself living a normal life after the end of the final season. But fans have continued to clamor for more. Will HBO ever deliver?
