Woody Allen is one of the most prolific directors working today: he just had a TV series on Amazon after premiering his most recent film, Cafe Society, at Cannes, and he’s been hard at work on his next movie, starring Justin Timberlake, Kate Winslet, and Juno Temple. That movie hasn’t officially had a title until now, but it was recently revealed that the new Allen film everyone will have on their radars all year will be called Wonder Wheel.
Woody Allen’s first TV series certainly got off to an inauspicious start, but at long last appears ready for its September 30 premiere. Following a first sneak peek, Crisis in Six Scenes at last comes forward with a first trailer, chock-full of ‘60s protests, book clubs, Black Panthers and a pot-dealing Miley Cyrus.
The only footage released of Woody Allen’s new Amazon series, Crisis in Six Scenes, arrived with little more fanfare than the filmmaker himself getting a haircut. Now, new photos from the September release give us a closer look at the cast, including hippie Miley Cyrus, Rachel Brosnahan and more.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
Earlier today, Amazon’s long-gestating Woody Allen series finally got a name and official premiere, but how about some footage? The Miley Cyrus-led period piece gets a bizarre first teaser, in that only Allen himself appears in the first Crisis in Six Scenes footage.
It’s been a head-scratcher since its announcement, and Woody Allen’s Amazon TV series will either bring sweet relief, or further confusion as early as September. The newly titled Crisis in Six Scenes has an official September premiere, along with new details of the Miley Cyrus-led series.
The prospect of a Woody Allen TV series hasn’t gotten any less strange since its announcement, between Allen’s public regret of the Amazon deal and the addition of Miley Cyrus, nor does the latest word from the controversial filmmaker, who admits in the same interview to knowing Cyrus from Hannah Montana, but never having seen Breaking Bad. Now, Allen reveals new details of the untitled project, as well his initial discomfort with TV.
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.
If you are going to the Cannes Film Festival this year, I hate you.
