See enough Woody Allen movies and you realize he only has like eight different stories and themes and he just mixes and matches them. Based on the trailer for his latest movie, Café Society, it appears that his latest effort (his tenth movie in the last ten years and 20th movie in 20 years) combines the standard issue Allen-esque nebbish (played this time by Jesse Eisenberg) who falls for a woman way out of his league (Kristen Stewart) with his deep nostalgia for the past (in this case Hollywood of the 1930s) in a story that takes a comic look at the futility of life. It ain’t the most original premise for Woody, but when make 20 movies in 20 years, how many original premises can there be?

Multiple outlets have launched individual standalone options to match that of industry leader Netflix, though Amazon has consistently lagged behind for its streaming service’s tether to an overall Prime rate of $99 per year. No longer, as Amazon Prime launches a far more competitive monthly streaming subscription on par with Netflix, as well as a new Prime rate for shopping.

Amazon is going all in on the Woody Allen business. The streaming-video giant has made some decisive moves in their quest to supplant Netflix as the dominant player in this increasingly crowded marketplace, one of which was landing Woody Allen for an original TV series back in January 2015. Last time he checked in about it, Allen wasn’t doing so hot with the TV format — he told Deadline that he “regretted every second since I said okay” to helming the six-episode series for Amazon — but he evidently enjoyed working with the studio, because Amazon has now announced that they will release Allen’s untitled next film.

We weren’t quite sure what to make of news that Woody Allen would develop his first TV project for Amazon (evidently, neither was Woody), and our days of confusion are certainly coming to a middle. Not only do we know that Allen himself will star in the ‘60s-set project with Elaine May, but so too will … Miley Cyrus? What? Come on, that can’t be right. There’s no way we’re prin -

A few days ago we learned that Bruce Willis had abruptly exited Woody Allen’s upcoming untitled project, less than 24 hours after photos showed Willis filming a scene on set. Willis’ departure caused a bizarre amount of speculation, with rumors circulating about his commitments to Misery on Broadway, though the most likely reason for Willis leaving was that he just wasn’t right for the part. It seems as though Allen has already found his replacement, and all is right in the Woody Allen universe.
