Now that 2018 is finally here, all our 2016 faves are making belated returns. FX and Donald Glover’s Atlanta is first-up with March’s Season 2 premiere, and a new promo teasing the mysterious “Robbin’ Season” ahead.
Netflix’s Death Note sure is still happening, and will be premiering on the streaming service in a little more than a week. To get us all extremely hype for a movie based on material that was popular when most of us were in middle school, Netflix released a clip today of the first meeting between two main characters: Nat Wolff’s Light, and Lakeith Stanfield’s hunched-over detective L.
2017 is already half-over, though it seems only yesterday we learned that Donald Glover’s FX Atlanta would join Westworld in delaying its second season to 2018. Glover’s understandably busy in the meantime, but Season 2 production will apparently start next month, as Glover teases his controversial approach.
The winner of this year’s Sundance Audience Award is coming to theaters this fall, with a trailer that looks absolutely amazing. Crown Heights, starring Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield and directed by Matt Ruskin, is the true story of the wrongful conviction of 18-year-old Colin Warner in 1982, and the fight to get him out of prison.
Regardless of how you felt about last year’s Blair Witch, Adam Wingard has earned more than enough goodwill with genre flicks like You’re Next and The Guest to ensure that we’ll be stoked to see whatever he does next. That would be Death Note, his American adaptation of the classic Japanese manga, starring Willem Dafoe as a spiky-headed and mega-creepy, self-described “death god” (I mean, what did you expect).
