Your Week In Streaming: From The Golden Globes to Emma Stone as Cruella…

What’s streaming…

The 2021 Golden Globes are on Sunday 28th February which means we can watch them here in Australia around noon the next day which is March 1st. But be prepared – these Golden Globes are going to be different to any previous ceremonies because with all the COVID-19 restrictions in place, most of the ceremony is going to be virtual.

The good news is – Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back to host the event! They’re doing it together but they won’t be in the same city – Fey will be broadcasting from the top of the Rockefeller Center in New York City, and Poehler will be at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California where it’s normally held.

The nominees will attend via remote connections wherever possible around the world. Usually this awards night is held in January so it’s much later than usual but the nominees were announced earlier this month. 

In a history-making move, three women were nominated in the Best Director category and they are: Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman; Regina King for One Night in Miami, and Chloe Zhao for Nomadland

But for those looking for more diversity, there have already been comments that in some categories this is lacking. For example, for television, there are only two black actors nominated in acting categories and no black actresses earned nominations which seems strange when some very award-worthy shows with black actors have screened.

In the US, the Globes are broadcast live on NBC but in Australia but in Australia, we can watch the awards ceremony on Foxtel which appears to have ‘exclusive broadcasting rights.’

But there’s also the chance this year’s COVID-aware ceremony could be fully digital, meaning the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will set up their own device-friendly way to stream all the night’s wins. So we’ll let you know when we hear anything more about this.

The Golden Globe Awards will be streamed live on Foxtel at 12pm on Monday March 1st and then again at 7.30pm…

Can you imagine Emma Stone as Cruella?

Well, you don’t have to imagine it because the movie, Cruella, will be out in May and you can watch the trailer here.

Directed by Craig Gillespie and starring Emma Thompson as well, the film was made by the Walt Disney Company. Academy Award winner Emma Stone of La La Land fame, stars as Cruella in this all-new, live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil.

Cruella is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution. The film follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they’re able to build a life for themselves on the London streets.

One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar winner Emma Thompson (Howards End and Sense & Sensibility). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations which cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella. 

Cruella was produced by Andrew Gunn (Freaky Friday), Marc Platt (Mary Poppins Returns) and Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin), with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers.

Two-time Oscar-winning costume designer, Jenny Beavan (Mad Max: Fury Road and A Room with a View) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.

Cruella will screen at cinemas in Australia on May 27th and we’ll let you know where it’s streaming after that…

A four-part HBO documentary about the Woody Allen scandal is now streaming on Binge…

Allen v. Farrow is streaming now on Foxtel and Binge. The HBO original documentary series from award-winning investigative filmmakers Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering and Amy Herdy, goes behind decades of sensational headlines to reveal what was behind one of Hollywood’s most notorious and public scandals.

The scandal centred around accusations that Woody Allen had sexually abused Dylan, his then seven-year-old daughter with Mia Farrow. Allen and Farrow had a custody trial and more dramatic details were revealed.

Once celebrated for their on and off-screen partnership, Farrow and Allen’s lives were irrevocably fractured and their sprawling family torn apart with the public disclosure of the abuse allegations. You can watch it all now on Binge.

The new film, Greenland, starring Gerard Butler, is streaming directly on Amazon Prime Video…

In Greenland, a family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. Gerard Butler from Angel has Fallen plays John Garritty, along with Morena Baccarin from Deadpool who plays his estranged wife Allison. Together with their young son, Nathan, they make a dangerous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. 

Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being levelled by the comet’s fragments, the Garrity’s experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.

Greenland is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video…

The 2005 hit movie – Mr and Mrs Smith – where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fell in love, is up for a reboot…

The two lead stars who’ll replace Jolie and Pitt have just been announced and they are Donald Glover and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The film will be made by New Regency and Amazon Studios with collaboration from writer Francesca Sloane. It will hit Amazon Prime Video in 2022, according to Glover.

The project was announced on Instagram — in pandemic fashion, quite literally. Waller-Bridge, 35, wore pyjamas to film herself striking a pose in a doorway — the same leg lift Jolie, 45, did for the film’s movie poster and promotional materials. Glover, 37, filmed a bit of himself flossing — the dance, not the dental routine — to celebrate.

This marks the second time Glover, whose musical stage name is Childish Gambino, and Waller-Bridge will star in a film together. The duo previously co-starred in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, with Glover as a young Lando Calrissian and Waller-Bridge as the voice of droid L3-37.

Mr and Mrs Smith starred Jolie and Pitt as secret assassins from competing agencies unknowingly out to get one another. It was a box office smash which made nearly $500 million worldwide but was perhaps most famous for the pair meeting and falling in love on set. Pitt and Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.

The new Mr and Mrs Smith will stream on Amazon Prime Video in 2022…
