black-ish First Look: Dre, Bow & Co. Get Animated in October Election Special

Published

on

Prepare to get even more drawn into the world of The Johnsons.

On Wednesday, ABC’s black-ish gave viewers a sneak peek at its upcoming pre-season special by revealing the art that will animate Dre, Bow & Co. in the previously announced election-themed event.

The hour-long special will air on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 10/9c, and will focus on the 2020 race for president. The first of two back-to-back episodes will find Junior purged from voter polls, a status he discovers when he excitedly goes to vote for the first time.

The second, animated half of the special will find Dre’s co-worker, Stevens, launching a misguided campaign to run for Congress. When Dre decides to counter his colleague’s ambitions by campaigning against him, he becomes ensnared in the world of fundraising and private interest groups.

Matthew Cherry (Hair Love) will direct both episodes. Jonas Diamond of Smiley Guy Studios and Rod Amador of Big Jump Entertainment will produce the animation… which you can get a taste of below.

‘Succession’ Wins Best Drama at Emmys 2020

Published

Looks like the Roys are taking over for HBO’s Throne. HBO’s Succession took home the coveted prize of Best Drama at the 2020 Emmys. The darkly comic drama about the internal discord tearing a major media family apart edged out the likes of Better Call Saul, Killing Eve, Ozark, Stranger Things, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The Mandalorian. Succession also takes the spot formerly held by long-time celebrated HBO show Game of Thrones.

Loosely based on the real-life stories of media mogul families like the Murdochs and Redstones, Succession tells the story of the fictional Roy clan. Lead by irascible patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox), the Roy family is essentially a group of bickering narcissists struggling to find emotional support from the very people they’re competing against for power. The series is a searing indictment of news media, the 1%, and the ruling class. Succession works in huge part thanks to its incredible writing, directing, and ensemble cast. In fact, the show won Best Direction, Best Writing, and Best Lead Drama Actor (for Jeremy Strong as Kendall Roy).

Accepting the award from London, series creator Jesse Armstrong gave an unconventional series of “un-thank yous” to the virus for keeping everyone in the show separate, to President Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson for their responses to the COVID-19, to Nationalists everyone, and the “media moguls” whom Armstrong said keep those groups in power.

Is Succession on Netflix? Sadly, if you want to catch up on the big winner of the night, you’ll need either an HBO or HBO Max subscription.

Star Wars Star Alden Ehrenreich Pushes Back Against Narrative Surrounding Solo

Published

It’s definitely true that the media tends to polarize not only the good and the bad but also everything in between. When it comes to Solo, there’s a lot to look at; so, let’s separate the conversation into box office and general perception. The first is box office. Was the media unfair to Solo by calling it a box office failure? Well, it’s certainly fair to call it a disappointment. The film was reportedly made for $300M according to Deadline. The film grossed a total of $392M and change worldwide. When you factor in marketing costs and percentage theaters keep, especially overseas, there’s no way the film made its money back theatrically (if the budget numbers are accurate). That being said, when you throw in home entertainment and life it’s getting out of streaming services and merchandise and what not, Solo was definitely not a disaster. It wasn’t what I’m sure Disney hoped, but sometimes that happens.
