The Highwaymen (2019)
Based on the critically acclaimed book The Most Dangerous Man by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis, the series follows Leary’s daring prison escape and run from the law in 1970. Aided by the Weather Underground, Leary’s prison break was the counterculture’s union of “dope and dynamite,” aimed at sparking a revolution and overthrowing the government. The ensuing global manhunt, led by President Nixon, spanned 28 months and wound its way among homegrown radicals, European aristocrats, a Black Panther outpost in Algeria,

To be clear as we can, Netflix is saying that Ava DuVernay’s four-part limited series about the falsely accused boys who made up the Central Park Five has been the most watched series on Netflix for the last 13 days. We don’t know exactly what “most” means, or even “watched” (how much of it? how long?). In stating that it’s “the most-watched series on Netflix,” the implication is it’s even more popular than Netflix reruns of “Friends” and “The Office,” which would be extraordinary. But it doesn’t exactly claim that.
Written by Greenwald based on the Ross Thomas novel, Briarpatch centers on Allegra “Pick” Dill (Rosario Dawson), a tenacious and highly skilled investigator working for an ambitious young senator in Washington, D.C. When her 10-years-younger sister, a homicide detective, is killed by a car bomb, Allegra returns to her corrupt Texas hometown. What begins as a search for the murderer becomes a fraught and dangerous excavation of the past Allegra has long sought to bury.
Dickens will play Chief of Police Eve Raytek, an authoritative firecracker who is committed to finding out who killed Allegra’s sister. She’s a boot-stomping good old girl who’s used to operating in an all-male environment. She
The maverick filmmaker is part of a group of stars this year (Julia Roberts is another) that you once never would have imagined seeing in a TV series. But Costner not only took that plunge with Yellowstone, from Hell or High Water and Sicario writer Taylor Sheridan, but also tested the streaming waters with the Netflix film The Highwaymen.
Back when you were a top Warner Bros. star, could you have seen yourself starring in television? It almost seemed like an insult in those days.
That’s actually not true at all.
New Line Cinema’s Mortal Kombat reboot will shoot in Adelaide later this year, with Aussie creatives at the helm in director Simon McQuoid and producer James Wan.
Expected to generate $70 million in expenditure, create 580 jobs and employ 1,500 extras, the actioner based on the popular videogame franchise will be the largest production to ever take place in South Australia.
Pre-production will begin later this month, with the shoot to take place at the Adelaide Studios, with post-production and VFX also to be done in Sa. Cast are yet to be announced.
Announcing the production, South Australian premier Steven Marshall said: “Mortal Kombat will be the largest film production in South Australia’s history and highlights the importance of engaging with the world’s major production houses.
“The state government’s investment in Mortal Kombat will enhance the scope and reach of our porudction and post-production capabilities, bringing
“The Blind Side” and “The Highwaymen” director John Lee Hancock is on board to write and will also direct the pic.
The story follows a burned-out Kern County deputy sheriff named Deke, played by Washington, who teams with a crack Lasd detective (Malek), Baxter, to reel in a wily serial killer. Deke’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past.
The plan is for the film to shoot this fall after Malek finishes production on “Bond 25,” which is currently filming.
For Malek, “Little Things” would mark another big role after winning the best actor Oscar for playing Freddie Mercury in box office hit “Bohemian Rhapsody.
John Lee Hancock is directing the film that will begin production in September. Hancock also wrote the script, and Mark Johnson is producing.
Malek would star as a young detective who teams up with a deputy sheriff on the hunt for a serial killer.

Malek most recently won an Oscar for his performance in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which grossed over $900 million globally. His other recent credits include “Buster’s Mal Heart” and “Papillon,” and he still stars in the TV series “Mr. Robot.” Next, he will star in “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle” and “Bond 25,” in which he is set to play the villain.
In a Twitter thread, the company announced that it will be releasing such lists on a weekly basis from here on out. To compile them, “we look at the most-watched individual season of a show, film or special (regardless of when it launched). ‘Watched’ means members finished at least 70% of one episode.”
“It’s a test as we want to make sure this information is useful for you,” Netflix added. “So we may tweak it in the weeks ahead. eg. we’re not including kids right now.
No. 1 on the list of most-watched shows in April is the David Attenborough-narrated natural history series “Our Planet,” followed by “The Perfect Date” and “The Highwaymen” in second and third place, respectively. Other lists put break down viewing by category: most-watched films, series, documentaries, reality shows, and non-English-language series.
The streamer said that some customers would start seeing the lists on their service starting next week. How that information will be presented is unclear, but one possibility is a new row of thumbnails labeled as a top 10 list.
At its recent first quarter financials, the Svod service revealed it was experimenting with the top ten list in the UK to give subscribers the chance to find out which of its shows are most popular in their region. It revealed the data on its social media channels.
Our Planet was its most-watched show in April, followed by teen rom-com The Perfect Date, Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson’s The Highwaymen, horror film The Silence, Black Summer, Ricky Gervais’ After Life, The Spy Who Dumped Me, Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Bear Grylls’ You vs. Wild.

Unlike the popular 1967 Oscar-winning film about the infamous duo, this Netflix film focuses on the other side of the law. It is the true story of Frank Hamer and Maney Gault, two Texas Rangers who hunted down and killed the duo. The film is a very accurate retelling of the story as a whole, though, like many films based on true events, there are some liberties taken here and there. Have a look at what is fact and what is fiction in The Highwaymen.
“The political landscape is unrecognizable to me, and shame on us for being in that spot,” the Oscar winner says. “That could change overnight, not because of a vote, but because people say, ‘I want to try to be more than about myself.’ That’s the definition of public service.”
Costner isn’t hopeful that change will come anytime soon.
“This is the greatest experiment in humankind: America,” he says. “This great idea about America still exists, it’s still here. People still want to come here, but we’re not first in hardly anything that matters and we have an inflated idea about how we are. We exaggerate about what we are. We are everything that’s great and we are everything that’s human. And our humanness and our level
Rarely are they provoked by a former homeowner’s mundane desire to still occupy the residence, as it is for Dennis Quaid’s vein-popping Charlie Peck in director Deon Taylor’s “The Intruder.”
In director Jung Huh’s 2013 film, “Hide and Seek,” the unhinged former renter (Mi-seon Jeon) is at least driven to madness due to a visceral combination of grief and poverty. But Charlie is nothing more than a man who’s mad that he lost his money after a few bad business deals and had to give up his gigantic Napa Valley home to a successful young married couple: Annie and Scott Russell. Charlie gets a huge windfall after they buy his home,
For Netflix, data means specific viewership totals for their programming as well as box-office performance — two very different issues. So here are the choices and the risks for Netflix.
The prime gauge of Netflix’s success is its number of paid subscribers. They provide these numbers regularly.. Unlike HBO and similar, Netflix can track every time a subscriber watches a program, and how much is viewed. According to Netflix, a viewing is when a member account watches at least 70 percent of one episode of a series, or 70 percent of a film — but
Reaffirming its reliance on international growth, Netflix has reported a record gain of 9.6m paid subscribers around the world in the first quarter of 2019, with 7.86m of them coming from outside the Us.
The gains leave the streaming giant with 88.63m paid subscribers in international markets and 60.23m in the Us, for a global total of 148.86m, 25.2% up on the total at the end of the first quarter of 2018.
Netflix is predicting that it will add another 5m paid subscribers in the second quarter of 2019, 0.3m in the Us and 4.7m internationally.
“Over the next several months, we’re going to be rolling out more specific and granular data and reporting, Ted Sarandos said on Tuesday following the first quarter earnings report by the streamer. “First to our producers, then our members and, of course, to the press over time and be more fully transparent about what people are watching on Netflix around the world.
The statement by the Chief Content Officer comes after Netflix dropped a few more data details about how its Umbrella Academy superhero series, the Frye Festival documentary and the Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson- led The Highwaymen film did.
Besides numbers for the Sandra Bullock starring Bird Box and a few other shows, the streamer has vigorously kept the data vault
Netflix has not revealed a date for the launch, but in a letter to investors following its first-quarter financial results, it noted that The Crown would debut after July 1.
