In case you were living in a bubble of Comic-Con news this weekend (or perhaps a new season of BoJack Horseman), Netflix shone the spotlight on yet another of highly-anticipated premieres. Baz Luhrmann’s ‘70s hip-hop drama The Get Down has a brand-new trailer, looking more musical and showstopping than ever.
Among the many, many new series arriving on Netflix this year, we’re perhaps most eager for a look at Baz Lurhmann’s ‘70s hip-hop drama The Get Down, its first episodes due to arrive in August. Even without a full first season to premiere, the latest trailer makes The Get Down a strong contender for the year’s most electric.
Ahead of today’s TCA ’16 panel, Netflix has unveiled a slew of release dates for new original series, including Baz Luhrmann’s musical The Get Down, the Winona Ryder thriller Stranger Things, and shows from Will Arnett, Ashton Kutcher and the service’s first French-language series, starring Gerard Depardieu. These shows join established series Orange Is the New Black, Jessica Jones, Grace and Frankie and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, with Netflix also announcing returning dates for those favorites.
Not to beat the drum on Netflix doubling its original programming across 2016, but have two more! Our first look at Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann’s take on 1970s New York hip-hop The Get Down has arrived, along with an extended sneak peek of Queen Elizabeth II miniseries The Crown.
Unless he's caught in a trap and can't walk out, it looks like 'The Great Gatsby' director Baz Luhrmann will be directing a film about the life of Elvis Presley, though it's unknown how much of the king of Rock and Roll's life the film will cover.
When you think about martial arts epics, the last name that comes to mind is Baz Luhrmann, the man behind movies like 'The Great Gatsby' and 'Moulin Rouge.' But maybe that's why he's an inspired choice for 'Kung Fu,' which will revive the beloved '70s television series and bring it to the big screen.
Baz Lurhmann's 'The Great Gatsby' has been a while in the making. After originally planned for a release this past December, the film was swapped for a start-of-summer premiere in the hopes of better profits. Now we're only weeks away from seeing Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character Jay Gatsby, and we've got so much swag to give out in celebration.
It's nearly the summer season (at least for movies), so it's surprising how quiet 'The Great Gatsby' has been in selling itself. Sure, it's going to be opening the Cannes film festival, but it's not being sold as a tentpole summer event picture. Regardless, the film has released seven new clips to get us excited.
We can't tell what's more exciting -- getting to see some more mind-blowing footage from Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby,' or previewing some of the tracks from the official soundtrack. Whichever you're more excited for, you get both in the latest TV spot.
