First look at The Twilight Zone! Plus The Wandering Earth on Netflix! And RIP Peter Tork!
Always Be Watching is curated by Dan Barrett who is an unashamed fan of The Monkees.
The first proper trailer for the upcoming Twilight Zone TV series is now ready for you:
Did you go and see the big sci-fi smash hit film playing in cinemas? It’s the biggest film in the world right now. No, not Alita Battle Angel. I’m talking about The Wandering Earth - it is past $600 million at the box office and climbing. Oh, and Netflix just bought global streaming rights.
Interested in two GREAT podcast chats that really get to the heart of the big streaming media issues of the moment? Both are courtesy of Recode.
Both have transcripts, but I think listening to the audio is worth your time. If you dig this newsletter, both interviews are well worth your time.
The Halo TV show from Showtime is still happening. Otto Bathurst (director of the recent Robin Hood film and of the infamous Black Mirror episode The National Anthem) will direct the series pilot. Kyle Killen is showrunning.
