It’s being reported that Overlord, the WWII film being produced by Bad Robot and Paramount is not only done filming, but is actually the next installment in the Cloverfield anthology. It seems like the Cloverfield rumor mill has gone from zero to a hundred in the matter of only a couple days. With the announcement of Cloverfield 3 aka God Particle hopefully keeping the new release day of April 20, 2018, it seems like fans are in for a Clover-filled year. Not only is the news of two new releases in the series enough to stir up some excitement, but it’s also being reported that Netflix is looking to pick up the kaiju/sci-fi anthology franchise.
Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, and Sara Gilbert are ready to go with the revival of the popular sitcom Roseanne. It may or may not end up on either broadcast networks or streaming services, they’re currently shopping around. I wouldn’t be surprised if Netflix or Amazon snatch it up. The original Roseanne ran for nine seasons on ABC, so another possible home is it coming back to where it all started.
The show was widely praised for shining a light on the working class American families of the time.
The series saw the Conner family try to eek out a living in the fictional town of Lanford, Illinois. You might know one of the cast member since they’re on the popular TV show Big Bang Theory, Johnny Galecki who played David on Roseanne. Sara Chalke also starred in an immensely popular comedy sitcom by the name of Scrubs. The show and cast received numerous awards ranging from Emmys to Golden Globes. Roseanne herself won a Golden Globe and an Emmy from this long running sitcom.
The trend of reviving old shows is on the rise. We’ve had Prison Break start airing on Fox in April. Last year Netflix debuted the continuation of Gilmore Girls to give the fans some closure, with more episodes possibly on the way. X-Files, Fuller House, and Twin Peaks are all on the way to either starting or continuing on with more episodes. And if you’re interested in Twin Peaks, we have some new set photos up!
I for one am excited for Roseanne to be back in some form. The family dynamic was one of the most real-to-life adaptations in my book. I just miss Dan and Roseanne most of all.
What was your favorite sitcom of the 90’s? Do you think this trend in revivals is a good thing, or a bad one? Let me know in the comments below!
Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ has finally gotten a release date.
Read no further if you’re in a happy mood, dear Nerd Hall fans, as there is nothing good to come from reading this article.
The Netflix adaptation of the fiercly popular young adult book series has finally announced, in a trailer, which here means, a short video introduction to the content and concept of a film or television show, earlier today.
We can expect to begin suffering the sorrowful tale of the Baudelaire Orphans come this January, the 13th 2017. Be wary to stay far from the internet, or even a WiFi connection on that day, you may accidentally access these Vile Filmed Documentations.
Starring the likes of Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld, The Tick), Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser M.D., How I Met Your Mother), Louis Hines, and Malina Weissman to name a few, it is sure to bring a tear to your eye and then a steadier stream of tears, even now knowing what’s coming next in this article I am crying, it is almost too hard too see to keep typing.
You can, if you have the will, view the trailer below where we get to see Mr. Warburton deliver some grave news as a very good representation of Mr. Snicket. Where ever he may actually be, I am sure he is displeased.
Press play, grab a tissue and continue to wait in silent apprehension for the coming of January 13th, 2017. If you do choose to keep the Very Feared Date down on your calendar as one to return to Netflix, I can do nothing else but warn you, you will be off to a very sad start of a not so great year.
Stick to Nerd Hall for more depressing, and some less depressing news as it comes to us, in fits and starts, in ebbs and flows and bit by bit down the pop culture pipes, now rusted and in need of repair. Keep an eye on your sugar bowl.
We have our Elektra! Coming on for the second season of the Netflix original hit, Elodie Yung (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) is coming on as Elektra Natchios. The actress, known for her intensive action/combat roles, is the ideal candidate for the scarlet swordswoman. Joining Jon Bernthal who will be playing The Punisher in the upcoming season.
Seems like things are going to get pretty intense in Hell’s Kitchen next year.
From the mind of Paul Reubens, everyone’s favorite manic Child-man, innocent and always growing much like his audience. Reubens went on to craft what is arguably one of the most recognizable and beloved characters of children of all ages.
From his time in the Playhouse to his stint in the Circus, Pee-wee Herman has been delivering the absurd and sometimes blue laughs for going on nearly 40 years. Birthed as a character from his time with The Groundlings, Pee-wee has come a long way and become so much larger than he began. Forever linked to red bow-ties, “If you love it so much, why don’t you marry it?!, and Tequila by The Champs, Pee-wee isn’t done yet!
Coming off an extended hiatus, a healthy Twitter presence (@peeweeherman) and a few stray appearances on various television mediums, Pee-wee comes back with another feature length premiering on Netflix March of 2016.
Early next year, we will finally re-join Pee-wee in his next adventure Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, directed by Judd Apatow (Freaks and Geeks, Walk Hard) and written by Reubens himself with Paul Rust (I Love You Beth Cooper, Inglorious Basterds, Comedy Bang! Bang!).
The film plot is vague as of now but what we do know is Pee-wee meets a mysterious stranger and this inspires him to take his first holiday and have what promises to be an ‘epic story of friendship and destiny’.
Again Pee-wee’s Big Holiday premieres March 2016 on Netflix.
