It wasn’t long after the reception of Arrested Development Season 4 that producers knew any potential fifth year would require greater effort to corral its busy cast in one place. More recent outlook on Season 5 suggested Netflix had found a way to do just that, but new reports suggest at least half of Arrested Development Season 5 may function as prequel with an all-new cast.

We’re far enough from the premiere that you’d barely remember Arrested Development Season 4 as one of the first Netflix original offerings, but at long last, Season 5 might finally escape its own arrested development. Producer Brian Grazer says the last cast hurdles have been cleared, and news should be “happening soon.”

The very first Drunk History in 2007 started with the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, leaving it uncertain if we’d ever see a retelling from the Hamilton master, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Thankfully, the day has arrived, as a drunk Miranda leads a new all-star retelling of Hamilton’s life with a clip from Monday’s Drunk History.

Drunk History has made its way around the block, from web series to Emmy nominations, and Season 4 on Comedy Central may be the most satisfied year yet. Not only do we get a first taste of Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda retelling the famous duel, but the first trailer brings a bevy of celebrities from Elizabeth Olsen to Ronda Rousey.

It was Lin-Manuel Miranda himself who pointed out that the first Drunk History had already chronicled Alexander Hamilton’s rivalry with Aaron Burr, before signing on to Season 4's post-Broadway recreation. Now, Arrested Development alum Alia Shawkat and star Aubrey Plaza have landed the new Hamilton roles, along with other details of the November bow.

I would like to formally apologize to the Park Avenue Screening Room for permanently denting two of their armrests. It couldn’t be helped. I was watching Green Room, which might be the most intense thriller of the last five years, and I needed somewhere to release all the tension. If the damage can’t be repaired, please send the bill to Jeremy Saulnier, the film’s director. It’s all his fault.

The latest red band trailer for the intense new thriller Green Room is here, and don’t you dare underestimate that I-word — the latest effort from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier is incredibly, unnervingly intense. And not the kind of in-your-face intensity you’ve become familiar with in your average action-thriller. This movie is a master-class in creating and sustaining tension, and for all the gory details, there’s a weird elegance to the film’s pacing and tone. You can get a hint of that in the new trailer, though you may want to wait and experience it for yourself in the theater.

Patrick Stewart Gets Violent and Ruthless in the Latest ‘Green Room’ Trailer

The life of a mid-to-lower-tier band on tour ain’t for the faint of heart. Sleepless nights spent driving the red-eye shift, siphoning gas to save a little pocket change, going days without showering, accidentally driving into the occasional cornfield — it takes a dedicated soul to see it through. But even months spent crashing on floors and couches in kindred souls’ apartments can’t measure up to the torrent of hell that befalls the Ain’t Rights, the tightly-knit punk outfit at the heart of Jeremy Saulnier’s supremely brutal new feature Green Room. Being hungry and smelly is unfun; accidentally witnessing a murder, getting locked in a small room by neo-Nazis hopped up on crank, and viciously picked off one by one is another matter entirely.

It’s been a rough week, but A24's teaser trailer for Green Room should perk you right up — and I say should because you need to get pumped about Jeremy Saulnier’s masterfully tense follow-up to Blue Ruin immediately. After playing on the festival circuit for a bit in 2015, Green Room is primed to become one of 2016's best films, and this teaser trailer aptly teases just a tiny taste of what’s in store.
