Which title will you see this month? Comment below!
I'm not sure who Idris is, so I don't really have a comment on that.
I think a different portrayal of James Bond would be really fun to see, although the writers would have to be very strategic about how they wrote it. James Bond is really a classic, and the new one would be compared to that. With that in mind, I think they could create a parallel version that would be fantastic.
Again, my vote is for Gillian.
Reviews of the first seven episodes aren't looking good for Disenchantment. The Vice says skip the 'unfunny' show. Rehashing old jokes about old stereotypes is...well, old. The only thing interesting about Disenchantment, according to Vice, is the setting of Dreamland. Vulture echos the recycled gags with 'jokes that fall flat' but praises the impressive 'cinematic' quality of the animation. CNET described the stories as 'fun' but in the end, 'static'. In comparison to Groening's hit Futurama, CNET says main character Bean is 'as winning as Futurama's Fry'. Not so much for the rest of the cast and story. While 'entertaining enough', Disenchantment can't shake the template of fantasy spoof. The New Yorker describes Enchantment's episodes as 'long and sometimes sluggish', comparing to a daylong play of Dungeons & Dragons.
With Groening behind big hits The Simpsons and Futurama, we have to admit our expectations were high for this new series. There's still time to change our opinions though, as the series has a 20-episode order with only 10 releasing August 17th. We will have to wait until tomorrow, when Disenchantment premiers on Netflix, for the rest of the consensus. For now, here's a look at the trailer.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, Beasts of No nation, and True Detective), Emma Stone, Jonah Hill, and Sonoya Mizuno star in Maniac as main characters Annie Landsberg, Owen Milgrim, and Dr. Fujita. Several other great stars will have recurring roles in the miniseries which include Justin Theroux, Julia Garner, Jemima Kirke, Sally Field, and Stephen Hill. Other names that will have roles in Maniac are Geoffrey Cantor, Josh Pais, Rob Yang, Christian DeMarais, Gabriel Byrne, Billy Magnussen, Selenis Leyva, and Rome Kanda.
The development of the then untitled Maniac series was announced in March 2016. On July 29 of this year, the Television Critics Association's summer press tour announced the series premier date of September 21, 2018. Watch the Maniac trailer below and let us know what you think!
