There's a new HOME ALONE movie coming to Disney+. This one stars Archie Yates, that kid from JOJO RABBIT, as Max Mercer - left behind when his family goes to visit Japan. When a married couple try to steal a priceless heirloom from the family home, they don't anticipate upcoming hijinks.

The grown-up cast is where things are a bit more interesting. Comedy favourites include Ellie Kemper (last seen in UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT and questionable stories about her beauty pageant youth), Rob Delaney, Aisling Bea, Kenan Thompson, Tim Simons, Pete Holmes, Devin Ratray (from the original HOME ALONE), Ally Maki, and Dr Spaceman himself Chris Parnell.

I am excited that this is coming straight to Disney+. With this cast, I'm interested. But not so interested that I could handle the humiliation of walking into a cinema to see this.

In a win for lonely virgins everywhere, Games Workshop is launching streaming service WARHAMMER PLUS. If you don't know what Warhammer is, congratulations - you have felt the warm embrace of another human.

Oh, calm down Warhammer fans - I mock with disdainful love.

Warhammer is a really interesting success story - run by Games Workshop, you'll find its retail stores in brick & mortar shopping centers the world over. It sells miniature statues/toys which are painted by Warhammer enthusiasts. It also really tightly controls the IP, meaning third parties get into all sorts of legal strife when they try selling third-party, unauthorized models and other supplemental material.

Warhammer models

So, considering how tactile an experience Warhammer is, I was curious to know what a Warhammer streaming service actually offers. It will cost US$5.99 / £4.99 a month (or $59.99 / £49.99 a year) and subscribers will get a bonus free miniature (valued at over $30). The service includes:

  • TV shows like Citadel Colour Masterclass for teaching model painting techniques, Loremasters to dive into official Warhammer lore, and Battle Report, which follows tournament-style tabletop battles in the Warhammer TV studio.
  • Animations like Angels of Death and Hammer and Bolter.
  • Premium access to the games’ official companion apps, Warhammer 40,000: The App and Warhammer Age of Sigmar, which include rulebooks, FAQs, and the Battle Forge army builder.
  • The Warhammer Vault, which includes official novelizations and the whole back catalogue of White Dwarf magazine.
  • A free exclusive miniature, with subscribers able to choose from a Vindicare Assassin or an Orruk Megaboss, with the option to buy the other later on.

Trailer Park

IMPEACHMENT: AMERICAN CRIME STORY debuts Sept 7 on FX On Hulu. Related thought TV broadcasters/streamers: It's ridiculous geo-blocking your trailers. It just opens the door to third party companies like JoBlo to rip your trailer and publish it themselves - often at lower video quality. It harms your publicity - especially in an age where TV series are going out global day/date.

Impeachment: American Crime Story examines the national crisis that led to the first impeachment of a U.S. President in over a century through the eyes of the women at the center of the events: Monica Lewinsky, Linda Tripp and Paula Jones.
