If films like The Irishman, The King, and Marriage Story didn’t make it crystal clear how serious Netflix is about bringing home that Academy Award for Best Picture they were unable to win with Roma last year, they also have someone Oscar is quite fond of, none other than Meryl Streep, a 21-time nominee and three-time winner.
Streep stars in The Laundromat, which Netflix released an official trailer for today. But she’s not alone. Not by a long-shot. The movie is directed by Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh, and she’s joined on the cast by fellow Oscar winner Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas. And they’re just the tip of the iceberg; the cast is massive, with numerous familiar faces. You can watch the trailer and see the full cast in the synopsis below.
Netflix has released an official trailer for Tau, a sci-fi thriller coming to the streaming service later this month.
The movie stars Maika Monroe (It Follows, The Guest) as a woman who’s kidnapped and held prisoner by a technology expert and inventor (played by Ed Skrein) who uses her as a test subject in his high-tech house, which is controlled by an artificial intelligence named Tau (voiced by the great Gary Oldman, who recently won an Academy Award for his work in Darkest Hour).

A red band trailer has been released for The Hitman’s Bodyguard, an upcoming comedy starring Ryan Reynolds as a bodyguard hired to protect an assassin played by Samuel L. Jackson. Also starring is Gary Oldman and Salma Hayek.

The impressive voice cast has been announced for the upcoming video game LEGO Dimensions in the form of a new preview video.
While the cast is huge, it’s a specific part of the cast that’s particularly exciting. Among all the names, none other than Michael J. Fox is in the game, reprising his role as Marty McFly from Back to the Future. He’s also joined by co-star Christopher Lloyd, who of course voices Emmett “Doc” Brown. If you recall a handful of years ago, Telltale made their own episodic Back to the Future game, but Fox was unable to record for the game at the time, leading to them bringing in a surprisingly accurate impressionist for the job.
You can read a rundown of who joins Fox and Lloyd on the cast, including stars of The LEGO Movie, Doctor Who, Portal, and more, and also watch the voice cast announcement video below.
“My name is Jim Kimmel” [dramatic pause] “and I teach.”
Jimmy Kimmel hosted a special late night edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live after the 87th Annual Academy Awards last night with this “seriously” guffaw-worthy bit called “The Kimmel School of Perfect Acting” about “the greatest acting school there ever was…or ever will be,” according to Benedict Cumberbatch. It included testimonials from Cumberbatch, Lupita Nyong’o, Mila Kunis, Harvey Weinstein, Jeff Bridges, Kristen Bell, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Anniston, Gary Oldman, Sean Penn, Matt Damon (excuse me – Matt Damen), Emily Blunt, and more.
