10 Cartoon Shows That Were Canceled For Strange Reasons

10 Cartoon Shows That Were Canceled For Strange Reasons
Who doesn’t love cartoon shows? Though they sometimes lack the sort of nuance and complexity of live-action shows, many times they also have important things to say about the culture that produces them.

What’s more, there are often some rather fascinating stories that take place behind the scenes that serve as a reminder that cartoon shows, no less than their live-action counterparts, are often subject to the various forces that affect any television production. In fact, quite a few cartoon shows have been canceled for very strange reasons, many of which are remembering precisely because they are so bizarre.

Hulu New Releases: November 2020

Hulu New Releases: November 2020
All streaming services go through a down period after the excitement of Spooky Season, it’s only natural. Thankfully with its list of new releases for November 2020, Hulu is making the best out of a barren pop culture landscape.

For starters, Hulu is premiering one of its major 2020 reboots this month as Animaniacs arrives on Nov. 20. Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and the rest of the Warner gang are set to return for this long-awaited revival of the animated classic. That’s about it as far as original series go but Hulu is also premiering original movies Greta, about climate activist Greta Thunberg on Nov. 13; and Run, a horror film starring Sarah Paulson, on Nov. 20.

Still, despite all the Animaniacs, Gretas, and Sarah Paulsons, the biggest hits this month might just be on the library content side of things. November 1 sees the arrival of some major TV properties. For starters, racy British

Aaron Sorkin Still Hopes to Make The Social Network 2 with Director David Fincher
With so much that's happened with social media over the past decade, The Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin still hopes to pen The Social Network 2, delving into the controversies Facebook has seen in recent years. The original movie, directed by David Fincher, was an incredible success when it as released in theaters in 2010. Along with earning several prestigious awards and scoring big with critics, the movie was a box office hit as well, grossing $224 million against a $40 million budget.

While The Social Network more or less shows how the social media platform came to be, there's been a lot that's happened with Facebook since. That includes the time Mark Zuckerberg famously testified to Congress amid accusations of allowing misinformation to spread on Facebook, which is believed by many to have been a major contributing factor in swaying the 2016 presidential election. As the material is certainly there, Sorkin opened up on

Ten years ago, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher unleashed The Social Network, the Oscar-winning look at the founding of Facebook.

Utopia US Remake Ending Explained: Who is Mr Rabbit?

Utopia US Remake Ending Explained: Who is Mr Rabbit?
Warning: contains major Utopia spoilers

With newly invented characters and a whole new world wrapped around bad guys/pragmatic planet savers The Harvest (the US version of The Network), Gillian Flynn’s Utopia makes considerable changes to the Channel 4 original. It’s faithful though, in most of the ways that matter – Jessica Hyde, the unforgettable Arby, Wilson Wilson and more are all kept intact, just transplanted from London to Chicago. There’s some very close translation of a few memorable scenes, as well as a good amount of invention. Flynn rewrites the backstory to weave in new setting ‘Home’, and new players, chief of which are John Cusack‘s Dr. Kevin Christie and Rainn Wilson’s Dr. Michael Stearns (the latter a sort-of combination of the original’s Michael Dugdale and scientist Donaldson).

Flynn’s series takes the bold step of taking us inside the shady global organisation pulling

Exclusive: After tapping Kat Coiro as director, Marvel Studios looks to have found its star to take over the title role in its She-Hulk series. Sources tell Deadline that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany is the choice to play the title character in Marvel’s She-Hulk series for Disney+. Deadline broke on Tuesday that Coiro would direct several episodes, including the pilot, for the series and now the show has its actress for the highly coveted role.

Marvel didn’t immediately return a call for comment.

Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao has already been tapped to lead the writers room.

The last major character to be co-created by Stan Lee, She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters, an attorney and cousin of Bruce Banner, aka The Hulk. An emergency blood transfusion from her cousin gives Walters her powers, but unlike Banner/Hulk, She-Hulk was able to keep her intelligence and personality when she Hulked out.

‘Mainstream’ Review: Andrew Garfield Is One of the Most Obnoxious Characters Ever in Gia Coppola’s Satire

‘Mainstream’ Review: Andrew Garfield Is One of the Most Obnoxious Characters Ever in Gia Coppola’s Satire
You have to hand it to Andrew Garfield. in “Mainstream,” a vapid social-media satire co-written and directed by Gia Coppola. Garfield, also one of the film’s producers, throws all of his loose-limbed “Amazing Spider-Man” physicality and “Under the Silver Lake” slacker slobbiness into the role of Link, a preening, pseudo-poetic stoner philosopher who could be the grotesque lovechild of Val Kilmer’s Jim Morrison in “The Doors” and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in “Joker.” What’s scary is the degree to which this excruciating film endorses his obnoxiousness. Surely we’re not supposed to like this poser, are we?

To be fair on Garfield, “Mainstream” is already close to unbearable before he appears. Its heroine is Frankie (Maya Hawke), a lonely 20-something who hates her job as a bartender in a scuzzy, magic-themed Los Angeles lounge bar, and who hopes that the videos she shoots around the city will get some likes on YouTube.

Spree Review: Joe Keery Steers a Terrifying, Thrilling Social Media Satire

Spree Review: Joe Keery Steers a Terrifying, Thrilling Social Media Satire
If you go on Kurt Kunkle’s Instagram, you will find stories filled with “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” American happy talk. Kurt leans in, and mostly fails, at living social media meritocracy’s “fake it till you make it” ethos. Whereas social media elites show off their good fortune then go out and live their lives, poor, working-class guys like Kurt scrounge up good vibes, in every embarrassing form, to gain followers (he calls them “Kurties”)––all in hopes of climbing the social media ladder. What he finds at the top is the basis for Eugene Kotlyarenko’s Spree, an equal parts terrifying, thrilling, and satirical look at how social media can warp the mind.

A rideshare driver for Spree (Kotlyarenko’s version of Uber), Kurt Kunkle (Joe Keery) creates an evil social media campaign called #thelesson to go viral. He installs cameras in his car and livestreams

Leigh Whannell to Direct Wolfman Movie Starring Ryan Gosling

Leigh Whannell to Direct Wolfman Movie Starring Ryan Gosling
Following the critical and financial success of Leigh Whannell's The Invisible Man, it seems like a no-brainer to get the innovative filmmaker involved on other projects in the revamped world of Universal Monsters, and it looks like that could be the case with the recently announced Wolfman movie starring Ryan Gosling.

Deadline reports that Whannell "is negotiating" to helm a new Wolfman movie that would star Gosling, presumably in the title role that was famously portrayed by Lon Chaney Jr. in George Waggner's 1941 film and several sequels. According to Deadline, Jason Blum's Blumhouse will produce the new film alongside Gosling.

Deadline reports that Whannell would write the treatment "based on an original idea of his own and inspired by the 1941 classic," while The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the script (written by Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo) has a "vibe that evokes Network (1976) and Nightcrawler (2014)," with Gosling

Ned Beatty movies: 12 greatest films ranked worst to best
Happy 83rd birthday to the great Ned Beatty, born on July 6, 1937! In a career that lasted four decades, the now-retired Beatty worked with a number of the greatest film directors in history, starting out with John Boorman and 1972’s “Deliverance,” in which he made his spectacular screen debut. From there, he went on to work with such screen legends as Robert Altman, Sidney Lumet, John Huston, Mike Nichols and Spike Lee.

Beatty was nominated for an Academy Award for 1976’s “Network,” directed by Lumet, as well as a Golden Globe Award nomination for portraying an Irish tenor in 1991’s “Hear My Song.” Beatty did not appear in films until he was 35 years old and was immediately pegged as a character actor, a category in which he flourished. His other film credits include “Nashville,” “Superman,” “Wise Blood” and “Toy Story 3.”

Sidney Lumet movies: 20 greatest films ranked worst to best
Sidney Lumet would’ve celebrated his 96th birthday on June 25, 2020. The Oscar-nominated director proved incredibly prolific during his career, directing over 40 movies in 50 years, from his feature debut “12 Angry Men” (1957) through his cinematic farewell “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” (2007). But how many of those titles remain classics? In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 20 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1924, Lumet got his start as a child actor, appearing in “One Third of a Nation” (1939) when he was 15 years old. After serving during WWII, he quickly began directing Off-Broadway plays before moving into the burgeoning medium of television, where he helmed hundreds of live teleplays.

Jennifer Aniston Deconstructs Her Tour-De-Force Breakdown on ‘The Morning Show’

Jennifer Aniston Deconstructs Her Tour-De-Force Breakdown on ‘The Morning Show’
On “The Morning Show,” Jennifer Aniston delivers one of the best performances of the TV season as Alex Levy, a morning TV anchor who decides she’s finally ready to fight the sexism that she’s endured throughout her career.

The Apple TV Plus drama escalates to a Season 1 finale cliffhanger, which has Alex coming to terms with her co-host Mitch Kessler’s (Steve Carell) firing over sexual harassment allegations. And eventually, she joins forces with her new co-host, Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), to stop the chauvinistic network president, Fred Micklen (Tom Irwin), who enabled Mitch to get away with his behavior for so long.

In an interview for Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue, on newsstands this week, Lisa Kudrow asked her former “Friends” co-star Aniston how she prepared for Alex’s breakdown — a tour-de-force moment of acting — on “The Morning Show.”
