2019 Predictions: What’s in Store for Film, TV and Music Next Year?
It would be hard to top the drama of 2018. From media mega-mergers to the rise of Time’s Up, it was a year that had more than its fair share of twists and turns. Leslie Moonves resigned in disgrace, At&T snapped up Time Warner, Disney inched closer to subsuming Fox and “Black Panther” shattered box office records and became a rallying cry for inclusion. Given all that change, 2019 has some big shoes to fill. Our newsroom of Nostradamuses thinks the next 12 months will more than meet the challenge. Here are 10 stories we could be busy chasing just as soon as the new year dawns.

Critics Pick the Most Disappointing TV Shows of 2018 – IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: What’s the most disappointing show of 2018?

(This is based on some anticipation of a show being good or promising, and then not living up to that standard. Both new and returning shows apply.)

Clint Worthington (@alcohollywood), Consequence of Sound, Freelance

The first season of “Westworld” felt like a wonderful extension of the themes showrunner Jonathan Nolan has been almost single-mindedly preoccupied with since “Person of Interest” — taking an old ‘70s classic sci-fi Western and infusing it with complex discussions of artificial intelligence, personhood, and the inherent problems underlying our images of the Old West. For the most part, Season 1 was a rousing success, culminating in a beautifully dark puzzle-box ending that set up a delicious revolution for the “hosts” of the park. Then Season 2 happened, and much

Mib: International First Look Has the Men In Black Ready for Action

Mib: International First Look Has the Men In Black Ready for Action
No Raybans, no ties, no problem. Earlier this week we passed along the news that director F. Gary Gray's upcoming reboot of Men in Black starring Thor: Ragnarok dynamic duo Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson had snagged an official title, and will henceforth be referred to as Mib International. The title is fitting and really just comes right out and tells us all we need to know about the upcoming revamps, now doesn't it? Yep, glad we can all agree that it's a sound title.

Good job, Hollywood. The film is obviously a spin-off of the massively successful original trilogy of films that starred Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and even Josh Brolin on occasion. But a bit less well-known is the fact that this film is also a reboot of the original Malibu/Marvel comics series of the same name by Lowell Cunningham.

First ‘Men in Black International’ Image Features Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson with Guns Drawn

A trailer for Men in Black International is likely to arrive very soon, and now we have the first image from the upcoming movie. Details on the plot are still scarce, but as you probably guessed from the title, the Men in Black franchise is going global, which is still kind of funny when you consider that the whole premise of the series is that the Earth is very small and kind of insignificant when compared to the size of the universe. But it’s probably a smart move to get the story out of the tri-state area, and …
