Lionsgate are shopping Bojack Horseman around to international buyers. They’re at international TV trade show Mipcom right now where they are offering the first 3 seasons in 11 different dubbed languages.
I had (yet another) weekend of feeling tremendously unwell, so spent much of it just watching sitcoms and low-investment dramas. So, when it came to watching The Haunting of Hill House, it wasn’t a high priority. But, watch it I did and I fell for its very quiet charms. I couldn’t watch past the first episode, but I’m going to be watching it throughout the week. Here’s a solid review from Vox.
Netflix cancelled its Marvel series Iron Fist. No reason given, but it’s likely a combination of low completion rates for the series and a lack of interest in maintaining a less-successful Marvel project when corporate-owner Disney will be launching a competing streaming service within the next 12 months.
I love going to the movies. Sitting in a cinema in front of that huge screen is a joy, but the experience of going to the movies is terrible - especially with the home entertainment experience so good nowadays. But persist with cinemas I do. Every Saturday morning I go and see a movie - usually in a near-empty cinema.
So, I was fascinated with Event Cinemas here in Sydney launching a 4DX cinema. This is a cinema with interactive elements like water being sprayed at audiences and automated chairs that enhance action on screen. And the results were actually surprisingly good. I wrote up an article about it for the SBS Movies site.
