“Chernobyl” is a show about the unpredictability of nature and the severity of ignoring the raw power of an unseen enemy. But with the overwhelming toll that this historical event takes on those caught in its grasp, the HBO series still finds room for some unexpected, conflicting emotions.
“There’s an absurdity that you have to kind of recognize. And the Soviets were better at it than anybody,” writer and creator Craig Mazin told IndieWire. “At some point, you just have this weird sixth sense as a writer that maybe it’s time for a break, that if I put one more log of sadness on this fire, everyone’s just going to get up and go home.”
“Chernobyl” director Johan Renck said that he bristled at the thought of people laughing at different points of levity in the series, but recognized that given
No additional details about the alleged misconduct have yet been confirmed, but the incident reportedly happened away from the film’s set.
Following his early exit from the film, Mitchell, who also appeared in the Dee Rees film “Mudbound” and the Nwa biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” was informed by producers on “The Chi” that he would not be asked to come back for the series’ third season. “The Chi,” created by Lena Waithe, was renewed for
“This a love story,” Fleabag says into the camera in Season 2’s opening scene of Amazon’s eponymous series created by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Who or what the love story is about, however, is up for debate.
For most viewers, the central relationship between Fleabag and Priest (Andrew Scott) is the clear love story. Their chemistry is instant and electric, and she even leads him into temptation, prompting him to break his vow of celibacy. But in the end, despite the their feelings of rightness together, he sticks with God. Fleabag and Priest exchange “I love yous” at a bus stop, and then part ways.
“The most important thing about that scene is that we know they love each other. Now you understand something that you might’ve suspected about these two people watching them throughout the series,” said Andrew Scott. “I think what’s
“A Rainy Day in New York” stars Elle Fanning and Timothee Chalamet as a young couple who take a trip to New York City that threatens to tear their relationship apart. Fanning’s character runs off to interview a famous movie director, while Chalamet finds himself alone and stumbling onto the set of a student film. The supporting cast includes Jude Law,
Sachs has always been a storyteller who doesn’t create his characters so much as he observes them from a safe but intimate distance — watching them the way you might catch yourself staring at a stranger on a crowded subway train — and his recent movies have earned him a reputation for making gentle human dramas that seem more like snapshots than full-sized portraits; even
The official synopsis reads: “Based on the best-selling novel by Garth Stein, ‘The Art of Racing in the Rain’ is a heartfelt tale narrated by a witty and philosophical dog named Enzo (Costner). Through his bond with his owner, Denny Swift (Milo Ventimiglia), an aspiring Formula One race car driver,
When the Deadline reporter Joe Utichi could not remember whether or not “Black Mirror” had already done a musical episode, Brooker responded, “No, but I’m delighted to know that you nearly think we might have done one. There’s room for everything. Sometimes that’s how we come up with ideas — we sort of go, ‘What would be the ‘Black Mirror’ version of a musical episode?’ And that prompts a conversation that sometimes ends up with something very different.
Their series, featuring two twenty-something siblings Cary and Brooke (brilliantly realized by Drew Carver and Heléne Yorke) floundering in their attempts to secure successful adulthood — only to be surpassed by their 13-year-old younger brother Chase’s (Case Walker) sudden YouTube fame — tells such a hilarious, if specific, story that it seems inevitable to assume that the story is ripped from the headlines of Kelly and Schneider’s lives.
And you wouldn’t be all wrong. “Usually it’s a story we’ve told 30,000 times because we like it,

The highlight, though, was the surprising callback to the original series pilot, “The Cage,” in the form of a recap to the opening of the episode “If Memory Serves,” a semi-sequel in which they returned to Talos IV to heal fugitive Spock from his memory block. However, utilizing footage from the original series (Tos) provided additional editorial and visual effects challenges.
After editor Scott Gamzon cut the episode, he was approached by executive producer-director Olatunde Osunsanmi about utilizing Tos footage for
The final season of “Game of Thrones” proved to be the most polarizing run of episodes the show has ever seen. Each week a different plot twist or story development provoked outrage from “Thrones” fans, whether it was Arya losing her virginity to Gendry, Missandei being executed by Cersei, or Daenerys burning King’s Landing to the ground. The backlash resulted in an online petition requesting a Season 8 remake. The petition, which blasted “Thrones” creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff as “incompetent writers,” went viral with over 1.2 million signatures and counting. In a post-finale interview with The New York Times, Sophie Turner put the petition on blast.
“All of these petitions and things like that — I think it’s disrespectful to the crew, and the writers, and the filmmakers who have worked tirelessly over 10 years, and for 11 months shooting the last season,” Turner said. “Like 50-something night shoots.

As was written in last night’s episode recap, the moment when it’s revealed that the Lords and Ladies of Westeros were going to elect Bran as the new King of the Six (formerly Seven) Kingdoms, you could almost sense the collective eye-roll from fans all around the world. Not that Bran is a terrible character (even though some would argue he is), but the fact that through all the seasons, all the death, all the destruction, the series ends with Bran on the throne is a bit…underwhelming and confusing.

The Iron Throne was officially destroyed by dragon fire in the series finale of “Game of Thrones,” but that didn’t mean a new leader of the Six Kingdoms wouldn’t be named. Following the death of Daenerys Targaryen and the imprisonment of her murderer, Jon Snow, the surviving leaders of Westeros joined Tyrion in King’s Landing to figure out who should rule Westeros. In a surprise move, the honor went to none other than Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). Tyrion proposed the idea, saying Bran had a story the people of Westeros would believe in. Bran made Tyrion his hand and agreed to let Sansa rule over an independent North (hence the Seven Kingdoms are now the Six Kingdoms).
“When I got to the [Dragonpit scene] in the last episode and they’re like, ‘What about Bran?’ I had to get up and pace around the room,
