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.

Terminator 2 remains one of the most important films of my life. Nine years old in 1991, the TV ads for it drove me into a frenzy and my dad’s bad judgment or not allowed me to watch the original before taking me to see T2 in theaters on opening weekend. It was the first movie I ever saw multiple times in theaters, and 27 years later it still holds up as one of the greatest films of all time. It is a masterpiece of action set pieces, drama, music and violence. Titanic and Avatar be damned, THIS is James Cameron‘s magnum opus. Now there is new 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray bundle available, giving home viewers the chance to enjoy one of the most epic films in the most epic way.
Fledgling cable channel El Rey Network is set to premiere the new 10-episode television series From Dusk Till Dawn next week. The series is the first entry into serialized television for Robert Rodriguez, who directed the original 1996 movie of the same name and which the show takes its premise from.
Just like the movie, the series will take place over the course of about a day and follow two bank robbing brothers, Seth and Richie, who make for the border with a family they’ve taken hostage. When they make a detour at a strip club, all hell breaks loose after they discover the club is inhabited by vampires. Since the twist of the original film is well-known, it will be interesting to see how the series draws out the plot while still keeping within the same time frame.
If you’re interested in the new TV series adaptation of Robert Rodriguez‘s 1996 flick From Dusk Till Dawn, the first official trailer has been released online.
The show comes from Rodriguez, who directed the first two episodes of the 10-episode first season, and his El Rey Network. It stars D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as the Gecko brothers (the roles played by George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino in the ’96 original), two bank robbers who, while trying to escape the law on their tail, find themselves having to deal with vampires. Don Johnson, Jesse Garcia, Wilmer Valderrama, and Robert Patrick also star in the series.
You can read a full synopsis and watch the first trailer for From Dusk Till Dawn below.
The cast of the hit HBO Southern Gothic horror-fantasy, True Blood, is getting more awesome.
It’s been announced that Robert Patrick has joined the show, and will be playing the father of werewolf Alcide (Joe Manganiello), named Jackson Herveaux. Patrick will first appear in a flashback to the ’80s when Alcide and Debbie (Brit Morgan) were teenagers, when Jackson was praised as being a “powerful, inspiring, and heroic” man. He’ll also appear in the present, but as someone who’s given up on life.
