Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ‘DuckTales’ Debut Teased in New Clip

Disney's DuckTales has checked every box a reboot is required to make and then some. It pays homage but is not beholden to the original series, it brings the story into the modern era, and goes above and beyond in order to deepen the mythology. DuckTales also features a fantastic voice cast anchored by David Tennant, Ben Schwartz, Danny Pudi, Bobby Moynihan, Kate Micucci and Beck Bennett, who have quickly made the fan-favorite characters their own in just a handful of episodes. But one big debut has yet to arrive, that of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Fenton Crackshell-…

Tribeca Film Review: ‘7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh’
Excessive absurdity is to be expected from a film titled “7 Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss by Passing Through the Gateway Chosen by the Holy Storsh,” and Vivieno Caldinelli’s feature doesn’t disappoint in that regard. But the outlandishness proffered by this comedy is of such a strident sort that any possible laughs quickly turn to eye-rolling groans. Despite inclusion in the Midnight movies section of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, this atonal affair is unlikely to elicit much good will from audiences of any genre persuasion.

Ohio transplants Claire (Kate Micucci) and Paul (Sam Huntington) have no sooner moved into their new Los Angeles apartment than they’re discovering the reason for its unbelievably low rent: It’s the former home of the Holy Storsh (Taika Waititi), a cult leader who killed himself in the bathtub, and is now a place where his disciples come to follow his fatal lead.

‘7 Stages To Achieve Eternal Bliss’ Review: Dan Harmon Steals the Show in Kooky Cult Comedy About the Afterlife — Tribeca

‘7 Stages To Achieve Eternal Bliss’ Review: Dan Harmon Steals the Show in Kooky Cult Comedy About the Afterlife — Tribeca
Finding your dream apartment is never easy, especially in a city like Los Angeles, and while there are plenty of things worth letting slide for cheap rent, a revolving door of crazy cult members who want to commit suicide in your bathtub probably isn’t one of them. But what if those cult members were on to something?

“7 Stages To Achieve Eternal Bliss By Passing Through the Gateway Chosen By the Holy Storsh” poses this absurd question with the same goofy energy as its long-winded title. It’s wild and funny ride, but comes equipped with a pinch of existential dread.

Director Vivieno Caldinelli, who got his start working on Canadian sketch shows, puts his comedy roots to good use by wrangling “Kids in the Hall” star Mark McKinney, Maria Bamford, Taika Waititi and more for inspired cameos. But the string of familiar faces all have a one-dimensional quality. In many ways,

All the Money in the World (Ridley Scott)

Scooby-Doo and Batman Preview Brings Mystery Inc. to Arkham Asylum

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a new clip and two new photos for Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and The Bold, which fans can pick up on DVD and Digital HD starting today. The ultimate crime-solving combination reunites when Batman joins the Mystery Inc. gang to catch a gaggle of villains wreaking havoc, one of whom is Edward Nygma, a.k.a. The Riddler. This clip features Batman (Diedrich Bader) revealing that he had no idea The Riddler was involved with Professor Milo, as Velma (Kate Micucci) stats they have to question him. Batman, on the other hand, thinks they need to sit this one out.

Fred (Fred Welker) protests Batman's assessment, stating they've "explored tons of spooky places," but Batman states that they've never been any place like this, which turns out to be Arkham Asylum. While Velma is excited for the chance to explore new levels of the "criminal psyche,

Lego DC Super Heroes: The Flash Gets Trailer And Release Date

With a hit CW series and a recent appearance in the Justice League‘s first silver screen outing now under his belt, one could say that everything’s coming up Flash. In fact, not only is the Flashpoint movie said to be still in some phase of production, but the Scarlet Speedster will soon headline an animated flick in the form of Lego DC Super Heroes: The Flash.

Now, it should be noted that much like his aforementioned solo movie or the animated film that was based on the very same source material, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the next direct-to-video Lego offering won’t afford Barry Allen the luxury of starring in a motion picture entirely free of his heroic cohorts. But the fact that Warner Bros. are allowing him to be the central focus is still nothing to shake Weather Wizard’s wand at.

‘Easy’ Season 2 Review: Grading Every Episode of Joe Swanberg’s Intimate and Exciting Netflix Series

‘Easy’ Season 2 Review: Grading Every Episode of Joe Swanberg’s Intimate and Exciting Netflix Series
Joe Swanberg is back! After a fairly under-the-radar Season 1 release in September 2016, Season 2 got the similar low-key marketing treatment before dropping the first day of December.

But don’t take the lack of buzz as a lack of import. Season 1 asked a lot of valuable questions while delivering a beautiful and unique realization of modern Chicago. The anthology approach, with each episode functioning as a standalone short, helped cover a lot of cultural ground, and Season 2 continues that pattern in interesting ways.

While the episodes can certainly stand on their own, many bring back characters from Season 1. Context from earlier episodes isn’t prescient, but it does help, and just like last year, some stories are better than others.

To that end, IndieWire has reviewed each episode individually below and ranked them by their assigned grades.

‘Easy’ Season 2 Trailer: Same City, New Positions

One of today’s foremost purveyors of “mumblecore” cinema – a derisive pigeonholing label for low budget indies which often involve the Duplass Brothers and sonorous dialogue – Joe Swanberg has managed to carve out a special niche for himself with his low-key hangout films, usually made in collaboration with “New Girl” actor Jake Johnson, such as the charming “Drinking Buddies” and “Digging for Fire.” Swanberg and Johnson scored their biggest mainstream success to date with this year’s Netflix original feature “Win It All” starring Johnson as a raffish gambling addict, and Swanberg is carrying on the momentum of his newfound recognition with a second season of his Netflix anthology series “Easy.”

Set in Swanberg’s beloved native Chicago, the first season of “Easy” adhered to a loose template following the sex lives of a disparate collection of couples and singles, with the episodes usually depicting a self-contained misadventure, such as
