Et Obsessions: ‘The Wine Show,’ ‘The Disaster Artist’ and More!
Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and here is what we’re most excited about this week:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘The Wine Show

Pour another glass because our favorite import -- Matthew Goode -- is back with a second season of The Wine Show, Sky Vision’s food and travel magazine series, which moves the action from Italy to the South of France. Available on in the U.S. on Hulu, the show became a favorite among viewers thanks to the bromance between Goode and co-host Matthew Rhys and their journey through the heart of Italy in search of tasty wine and lasting memories. Joining Goode (who also stars on The Crown season two) is James Purefoy, an equally English and handsome actor, who steps in for Rhys. This season, two hosts are tasked with finding a case of wine to match a six-course French lunch cooked by Stephane

Animal Factory Starring Willem Dafoe on Blu-ray November 28th From Arrow Video

Animal Factory starring Willem Dafoe will be available on Blu-ray November 28th From Arrow Video

Troubled youth Ron Decker (Edward Furlong, American History X) is sentenced to a ten-year stint in the notorious San Quentin State Prison for a drug-dealing conviction. Inexperienced in the ways of prison life, he’s taken under the wing of Earl Copen (Willem Dafoe, To Live and Die in La), an experienced con with the entire prison in the palm of his hand – inmates and guards alike. But as Ron grows increasingly cocky in his privileged role as Earl’s confidant, is he in danger of biting off more than he can chew with some of the jail’s more volatile inhabitants?

Based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Eddie Bunker (Reservoir Dogs), Animal Factory was Steve Buscemi (Lonesome Jim, Interview)’s second stint in the director’s chair and sees him marshaling a formidable ensemble cast,

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Channel 4 are about to embark on a new ten part sci-fi anthology series in September called Electric Dreams with a whole host of actors you may just recognise and we have three first look images from the series which include Doctor Strange actor Benedict Wong and Free Fire’s Jack Reynor.

Related: Exclusive Interview with Benedict Wong on Doctor Strange.

The series, which is inspired by Philip K. Dick’s renowned short stories, will feature ten standalone episodes where each are set in a different and unique world – some which lie in the far reaches of the universe and time and others which are much, much closer to home. While the stories may be worlds apart, central to each is the poignant and warm exploration of the importance and significance of humanity.

Adapted by a number of leading writers and directors, the Electric Dreams series will

‘Disjointed’ Trailer: Kathy Bates Blazes in New Netflix Pot Dispensary Comedy

‘Disjointed’ Trailer: Kathy Bates Blazes in New Netflix Pot Dispensary Comedy
Just start planting the pot jokes now. Weed out all the bad ones. Hash it out with your friends.

You could make these jokes all day and apparently, so can “Disjointed,” the latest Netflix multicam comedy premiering later this month. Kathy Bates stars as the proprietor of “Ruth’s Alternative Caring,” an L.A.-area pot dispensary, a woman who runs the store along with a handful of ragtag employees. She partakes in her own supply, as do most of the other characters on the show, from the looks of the first full trailer.

Blu-ray Review – Fargo (1996)

Fargo, 1996.

Written and Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen.

Starring Frances McDormand, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi, Harve Presnell, and Peter Stormare.

Synopsis:

If you’re into collectible steelbooks, this 20th anniversary release of Fargo from Shout! Factory is a worthwhile pick-up. However, be aware that there’s nothing new in this edition when compared to previous DVD and Blu-ray releases. And, yes, the movie came out 21 years ago.

Shout! Factory has been getting into the steelbook game with some classics. They started with Escape From New York, The Thing, and The Fog, and now they’ve revisited a Coen brothers treasure with Fargo. If you own any previous home video editions of this film, I’ll answer your likely question first: Yes, this is a repackage of the remastered 2014 Blu-ray from MGM, with the same bonus features from the flipper DVD they released in 2003, although a couple things are missing,

‘The Defiant Ones’ Director Allen Hughes on How He Got Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, and Dr. Dre to Spill Secrets On Camera

‘The Defiant Ones’ Director Allen Hughes on How He Got Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, and Dr. Dre to Spill Secrets On Camera
Sometimes, when you’re documenting history, you still have to make your own moments.

“When the camera’s rolling and when I yell cut, I made sure my team knew, ‘Don’t ever cut until the subject is off the set,'” Hughes said.

Some of the most satisfying moments in the new HBO docuseries, “The Defiant Ones” — an expansive, four-part history of the last four decades of popular music, premiering Sunday night on HBO — are candid ones. Interview subjects occasionally tinker away on a keyboard or wander around a living room. Stevie Nicks plunks out a tune on a baby grand. Eminem strolls right onto set and starts dishing. As Hughes described in a recent interview with IndieWire, those moments were part of the plan from the beginning.

“There’s always a veneer,” Hughes said. “People are being guarded about their image. From early on, I said, ‘Start the

What Could Go Wrong: Interview with Alien: Covenant's Michael FassbenderWhat Could Go Wrong: Interview with Alien: Covenant's Michael FassbenderJulide Tanriverdi - Cineplex Magazine5/17/2017 10:58:00 Am

It’s a rainy, chilly day in L.A. but Michael Fassbender is all smiles during an interview at the city’s London Hotel.

“They put me back together, and I am back,” he says with a grin. Fassbender is of course talking about Alien: Covenant, the latest installment in director Ridley Scott’s horror/sci-fi franchise.

Our last visit to the Alien universe came in 2012 with Prometheus, a film that ended with Fassbender’s android David losing his head and having it carried off the spaceship in a bag by crewmate Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace).

The movie got mixed reviews and didn’t connect with the franchise’s passionate fanbase. But expectations are high this month as Scott returns to the

Will Alien: Covenant Revive The Ailing Franchise Or Do More Damage? -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, and to paraphrase those renowned seventies scholars the Brady Bunch, “When it’s time to change then it’s time to change.”

While I’ve tried my hardest to slowly sneak those changes in, it’s gotten to the point where we’ll need to do something more drastic if the few of you reading the Weekend Warrior on a weekly basis actually want it to remain coming to you on a weekly basis. Because of that, we’re going to try something different by not throwing in as much independent limited releases for those checking the column out, and making the column a little more focused at least for the time being.

Interview: Bryan Cranston for Why Him? Out now on UK DVD & Blu-ray

Bryan Cranston is an Academy Award nominee, a four time Emmy Award winner, and a Golden Globe and Tony Award winner.

Bryan recently starred as the title character in Jay Roach’s Trumbo. His performance garnered him nominations for an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a SAG Award, a BAFTA Award, and a Critics’ Choice Award in 2016 for “Best Actor.”

Next, Bryan stars in John Hamburg’s Why Him? alongside James Franco, and we caught up with him to talk about the film.

Given the extreme darkness of the last few seasons of Breaking Bad, how did it feel to return to comedy?

Great! That’s been part of the reason that I decided to do this, because I’ve been doing a lot of dramas lately, and I love doing them. You’re playing important characters and it’s good storytelling. But I missed just having silly fun on the set.

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies,

Interview: Director James Gray on The Lost City of Z

Author: Jon Lyus

We’re huge fans of James Gray’s work on HeyUGuys. His work on films such as We Own the Night, Two Lovers and 2013’s under-seen (but often on Netflix) classic The Immigrant are stirring works of an assured cinematic hand. Next week his latest film, The Lost City of Z, arrives in UK cinemas, and is well worth your time.

The film tells the story, so vividly brought to life in David Grann’s 2009 bestseller, subtitled: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, of explorer Percy Fawcett. His journeys deep into the Amazon to uncover the secrets of a lost civilization were followed intently at the time, making his disappearance in 1925 of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.

James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist’ Is the Biggest Sales Title at SXSW, If the Studio Decides to Sell

James Franco’s ‘The Disaster Artist’ Is the Biggest Sales Title at SXSW, If the Studio Decides to Sell
Compared to Sundance and Cannes, the SXSW Film Festival is not typically viewed as a major sales market. That wasn’t the case on the third night of the 2017 edition, when multiple buyers surfaced at the rapturous first screening of the James Franco-directed “The Disaster Artist” at Austin’s Paramount Theatre, even though the movie was produced by Warner Bros. and New Line.

Billing it as a “work-in-progress” screening rather than a world premiere, the studio has reportedly struggled to figure out how they might market the film. Its confusion is understandable: Warners topped the box office this weekend with “Kong: Skull Island,” and “The Disaster Artist” is a biopic starring Franco as Tommy Wiseau, the Ed Wood-like director of the craptastic midnight movie phenomenon “The Room.”

‘I Am Another You’ Uncovers an American Dreamer From the Inside Out — SXSW 2017 Review

‘I Am Another You’ Uncovers an American Dreamer From the Inside Out — SXSW 2017 Review
When Chinese filmmaker Nanfu Wang discovers a nomadic 22-year-old American homeless man in the first chapter of her documentary “I Am Another You,” he’s living the dream; the rest of the movie is a gradual wakeup call. With time, Nanfu comes to understand that rejecting society isn’t such a simple proposition. By bringing an outsider perspective to the Western world, Nanfu pulls apart the American dream from the inside out. Shot over the course of several years, the movie blends an intimate perspective with trenchant investigative chops, uncovering a transitory figure whose romantic ideals give way to a harsh reality check.

The documentarian’s feature-length debut “Hooligan Sparrow,” a shortlist for the Oscar in 2016, dealt with institutional dysfunction in her native country. With “I Am Another You,” she takes a more personal approach, exploring the mythology of the American dream as a naive interloper subject to conflicting points of view.
