The delightful chaos wrought by Amazon Studios’ new Good Omens TV series at SXSW cannot be denied or ignored, literally. With such an enormously immersive marketing strategy, you’d expect it was being positioned as the next Game of Thrones or Westworld, both of which saw HBO employ similar tactics in years past. But, you’d be utterly and completely wrong.
Good Omens is something entirely different — and, if successful, could have the potential to usher in a new era of TV.
Amazon Prime Video has released an official trailer for Good Omens, the upcoming series based on the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch.
The show follows an odd couple angel and demon (played by Michael Sheen and David Tennant), who have grown fond of their lives on Earth and aren’t at all fans of the coming end of days.

Earlier this month we found out that production on the long-awaited Super Troopers 2 had finally been completed.
This of course meant that we would be seeing the first trailer for the sequel soon, and this week, that soon became right meow. A first teaser trailer for the movie has indeed been launched, and as an added bonus, if you missed it, an official release date was also set recently.

Rings, the third installment in the American “Ring” series hits theaters everywhere Friday. Fifteen years ago Gore Verbinski‘s The Ring opened, and set off a chain reaction that changed an entire genre. Based on the 1998 Japanese horror film Ringu, directed by Hideo Nakata from the original novel by Koji Suzuki, The Ring terrified viewers here and was a critical and financial success, earning a 72% on Rotten Tomatoes and almost $130 million. That success spawned a whole slew of J-horror knock offs and remakes including The Grudge (2004), Dark Water (2005), Pulse (2006), and the notoriously awful One Missed Call (2008). The sequel, The Ring 2 also came in 2005.
Before we watch Rings Friday, let’s revisit 2002’s The Ring.
