Gaspar Noe's Lux Æterna. Do not watch this if you are sensitive to flashing lights.
I'm not a Noe fan, but the synopsis reads like a Matías Piñeiro meta-film with Charlotte Gainsbourg instead of the array of Argentinian theatre actresses (eg. María Villar, Elisa Carricajo, Laura Paredes) albeit much darker and (likely obnoxiously) deranged. I'm more curious than usual, yet still don't have anything but low expectations.

Apparently there's a Blithe Spirit remake?

Oh god yes. I saw the trailer some time back, this is another film delayed by vivid, and it looks broad as hell. It's a long time since I saw the Lean and have never seen it on stage, but I doubt they're much like this.

Trailer/teaser for Septet: The Story of Hong Kong, the long-in-the-works omnibus with Sammo Hung, Ann Hui, Patrick Tam, Yuen Wo-ping, Johnnie To, Ringo Lam, and Tsui Hark each contributing a segment set in a different decade of Hong Kong's postwar history. (If you're wondering why there's no segment set in the '70s, that was presumably the one earmarked for John Woo before he dropped out due to health issues.)

A remake of Black Narcissus for FXX and the BBC will release in November, and is currently drawing ire on social media for a color palette and visual effects that can charitably be described as a downgrade from the 1947 film

I wouldn't hesitate to release it, but I guess we'll see.

Pretty fascinating. The Patrick Tam stuff looks pretty cool, and the Ringo Lam and Johnnie To stuff looks faintly promising. Also the Sammo Hung footage? This will be a really curious mix of stuff.

I kind of wish when John Woo dropped out they could have handed his segment to Patrick Leung for old time's sake. But it seems like this movie has been pretty hard to put together, so I kind of get why they might have preferred to just drop the decade.

Tall Girl: The Film We’ve All Been Asking For
Worth watching for the expectedly excessive rate of utterances of the words “tall girl” by seemingly every character in this movie. Actually no it isn’t.
There's a 16 year old girl in Texas who is 6'10".
Guinness recently certified her as having the world's longest female legs.
She could have made a cameo ... or even starred.

I saw the movie and the point is that the lead is more than just a tall girl. She’s special and nobody can play her but her.

Trailer for Michael Bay’s Songbird

Can’t think of the last planned release that felt insultingly inappropriate. The Bob Marley “remix” in the trailer is the least offensive part.

Just catching up on this thread so only seeing this trailer now. It's not personally something I would want to watch anyway, but is there much of an appetite for this kind of thing? I had little interest in watching any kind of Year in Review shows this past couple of weeks. It's not particularly a year I want to relive, let alone in Michael Bay form.

I think people are attracted to chaos and nightmarish scenarios for multiple psychological reasons that I can't even begin to unpack in any reasonably-sized post (and after a full week of conducting post-holidays therapy sessions, my therapeutic mind needs a rest), but just watch the news- you get a 30-second clip of a cute puppy and 98% terror- few people would admit that they "want" to watch that, but millions are compelled to and have parts of them that crave it.

I'm with you though, the movie looks stupid and my appetite is spoiled on that front.

I can't tell what's worse, this movie or the conspiracy theorists in the comments calling this "predictive programming."

Did they really have to name it COVID-23? ](*,)

Is it just me, or did disabling autoplay on youtube go away altogether?

Just you? I see the option on the video itself, at the bottom, on the right, next to CC options.
