Hollywood’s summer blockbuster season is here but unfortunately, due to the pandemic, no big movie or concert is anywhere around the corner, except, a groundbreaking musical Hamilton.But Disney changed its plan and now it’s coming to your homes at the beginning of the midnight of June 3.Disney has no plans of pulling it out anytime soon so it can be expected that the musical Hamilton will stay with Disney+ for quite a few months.You can stream it anytime like any other show on the platform.She was inspired by Ron Chernow’s exhaustive 2004 biography about one of America’s seminal figures.Hamilton is not just a musical show but a live capture of an actual stage performance starring Miranda, Oakland native Daveed Diggs, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry, Jonathan Groff, and more.
Holden Ford is based on John E. DouglasThe character of Holden Ford, the young and ambitious special agent in the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit (BSU) played by Jonathan Groff, is based on the real-life Douglas who wrote the book on which the series is based.Prior to that, he was a sniper for the local FBI SWAT team, then a hostage negotiator.From 1976-1979, he helped organize interviews with a total of 36 serial killers who were serving time in jail and helped set up Vi-CAP (Violent Criminal Apprehension Program), a centralized computer database of information on unsolved murders.Now 82, she continues to work as a professor at the William F.

For devotees of true-crime dramas, one Netflix "Summer Friday" this year will be unlike the rest.The thriller Mindhunter is scheduled to return to the streaming service Friday, Aug. 16, two years after the debut of season 1.Executive Producer David Fincher revealed the info Friday during an interview for KCRW's "The Treatment" podcast.In the upcoming season, the FBI's behavior unit, featuring characters played by lead stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany, will interrogate a serial killer about the Atlanta child murders of 1979-81.The drama as a whole is based on Mark Olshaker and former Special Agent John Douglas' 1996 book, "Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit."Fincher has a reputation for hit movies like The Social Network, for which he won best director at the 68th Golden Globe Awards.
Netflix’s Mindhunter, the David Fincher-produced crime thriller, will return for a second season on August 16th.The show follows two FBI agents from the Behavioral Science Unit — Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) — as they travel across America to interview psychopaths and serial killers in an attempt to understand their mindset.The new season, which was quickly confirmed after the show’s debut in October 2017, will focus on the Atlanta child murders of 1979–1981, which claimed at least 28 known victims.Fincher first confirmed the release date and revealed more details about the second season on KCRW’s The Treatment podcast.Fincher has been increasingly involved in Netflix projects.The streaming platform announced last month that it would be ordering a second season of its adult animated series Love, Death + Robots, co-created by Fincher and Deadpool director Tim Miller.
And something like Fantastic Fest—the annual Austin, Texas, genre film event that brought us alien love documentaries, Anne Hathaway as kaiju, and a film entirely set in a 911 dispatch center—can practically top my anticipation rankings every year.Netflix's Mindhunter originally seemed like a quick but forgettable green light: grab a dude from Hamilton, make him some kind of authority figure in a crime thing, and darken up the story a bit.Stranger Things without Spoiler Things: It’s dark, different, and still delightfulJonathan Groff (the Hamilton guy) plays upstart FBI agent Holden Ford, a man obsessed with the job and with making his way up the bureau food chain.His odd-couple (err, trio) team of Bill Tench (Holt McCallany as a grizzled, skeptical FBI vet) and Wendy Carr (Anna Torv as an academic psychologist in it for the research data) sizzles every time they're interacting in a scene.That's saying something considering how dynamite Ford's direct interactions with killers can be (Cameron Britton is a revelation as serial killer Ed Kemper, an intimidating physical presence happy to indulge in a little narcissistic "talk about yourself" exercise regularly).
Frozen II dropped its first teaser back in February—and now, the first full trailer for Disney’s much-anticipated sequel is here to cool you off as summer heats up.We already knew the plot was going to involve Anna and Elsa (and their pals) venturing away from Arendelle on a grand quest, possibly to learn more about what happened to their parents, and this new trailer the royal sisters learn that the truths they’re seeking lie north.Frozen II—featuring Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad returning, plus new voices Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown—is out 22 November, from the same Oscar-winning directors (Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck) and songwriters (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) who made the first film such an inescapable phenomenon.
In Frozen 2, Anna and Elsa will venture beyond their home of Arendelle and search for answers to the question: Why was Elsa born with magical powers?A new trailer for the film debuted Tuesday, and it shows Elsa (Idina Menzel) setting out on a dangerous journey with Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven.Frozen 2 brings back the filmmakers and songwriters from the 2013 original film, including directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.The first film is the highest-grossing animated movie of all time.Disney also released a new poster for the film on Monday.A teaser trailer for Frozen 2 released in February shows Elsa trying to run across waves using her ice powers before being taken under by the water.
The new Frozen 2 trailer has turned out to be very hot.The teaser trailer for the icy sequel to Disney's megahit Frozen dropped Wednesday, and in 24 hours became the most watched animated trailer of all time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.The trailer got viewed 116.4 million times in its first 24 hours, THR reports.That puts it ahead of the trailer for Pixar and Disney'sIncredibles 2, which until now held the record with 113.6 million viewers.In the Frozen 2 trailer, we see Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) on a dark and stormy beach trying to run across the waves using her ice powers, and finally getting taken under by a giant wave.Elsa's sister Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), reindeer Sven and even snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) appear to be back for more adventures.
Today, Disney released the first trailer for Frozen 2, the sequel to 2013’s animated musical adventure Frozen.Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, returning from the first film, have said virtually nothing so far about the plot of the new film.And the initial trailer doesn’t fill in any gaps.It’s a wordless collection of scenes of the characters grimly striving at various unclear tasks.In particular, it looks like Queen Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) is trying to escape a barren island by running across the churning ocean, while her sister Anna (Kristen Bell) and their friend Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) charge into their own grave-looking crisis situations.The overall tone is grim and serious, with comic-relief snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) barely making an appearance.
We awoke this morning to the first teaser trailer for Frozen 2, the sequel to Frozen, Disney's inventive 2013 re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Snow Queen."The original was such a blockbuster that it will be hard for any sequel to recreate the magic, but the new teaser certainly looks promising.The elder, Elsa (Idina Menzel), has the power to control and create ice and snow, but she struggles to control it.When Elsa turns 21, she's crowned queen but a spat with Anna after the coronation reveals her magic.She's exiled from the kingdom, flees to the mountains, and builds a gorgeous castle of ice and snow in which to live out her days in isolation.Anna goes off in search of Elsa with the help of an ice harvester named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his trusty reindeer Sven, as well as a snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad).
When Kenya Barris created Black-ish back in 2014, he made Anthony Anderson’s lead character, Dre, an advertising executive, because he knew that career would lend itself to organic integrations with brands on the show.That’s what happened during the ABC sitcom’s first four seasons, as it partnered with several brands, including Microsoft, State Farm and Procter & Gamble.As Black-ish’s fifth season gets underway, Barris is no longer serving as showrunner—Adweek’s newly-anointed TV Creator of the Year stepped back this summer to focus on his lucrative new Netflix deal, though he remains involved as an executive producer—but the show’s remaining creative team will continue to feature integrations this season.“We’ve been able to have that superpower of the [fictional Stevens & Lido] advertising agency and the [Johnson family] home, and sometimes we can do both,” said executive producer Jonathan Groff of how the show is able to incorporate brands.“With the car company it makes so much sense to me that Dre would be able to get a brand like Buick as a client, and maybe would be driving one for his own benefit and would have one for the family to drive and being using it, so he could write great ads for it.So I like to be able to have both the family using it, in the way any show would, and have that ability to talk about the product in the advertising agency,” Groff said, adding the show will incorporate integrations again this season, likely including one featuring a car brand and another focusing on a tech brand.

True-crime investigations, fictional radio shows set in small towns, long-form obsessive pursuits of a reclusive fitness gurus—the biggest hits in podcasting in recent years have taken a lot of varied forms.But the latest one trying to jolt the industry is doing it using an even more unlikely genre than most: musical theater.On the surface, 36 Questions, which stars Hamilton alum Jonathan Groff, is a narrative podcast about a couple working out their marital issues through song.But for producers Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie, who produced the 2013 fiction podcast Limetown, it’s the first step towards a podcast channel built around experimentation.It's the start of a master plan to lure listeners away from long podcast series and into a sprawling ecosystem of audio aimed at evolving what podcasts can be.“There’s an unlimited amount of ways to go right now, because the podcast form is so young and so pliable,” says Akers.
