Hubie Halloween

Director: Steven Brill

Writer: Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy

Cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, June Squibb, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Buscemi, Maya Rudolph, Tim Meadows, Karan Brar, Paris Berelc, Noah Schnapp, China Anne McClain, Michael Chiklis


Not all Halloween movies are spine-chilling and spooky and not all Salem stories are about witches! Hubie Halloween proves that mysteries can be comical too. The movie follows the story of Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler), an eccentric but simple deli-worker in Salem, Massachusetts. His good-natured, child-like persona is often mocked by the kids and adults in his neighborhood. But this one Halloween, Hubie finds himself in the middle of a mystery that he must solve to save the community that he loves. It’s fun, entertaining, with lots of LOL moments, and there’s nothing to take seriously. It’s a mystery-comedy after all.

Murder Mystery

Director: Kyle Newacheck

Writer: James Vanderbilt

Cast: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, Adeel Akhtar, Terence Stamp, David Williams, David Boon, John Cani, Sufe Bradshaw


Another mystery-comedy from the house of Adam Sandler and this time he has a partner! Jennifer Aniston teams up with the Sandman after nearly a decade for a thrilling and fun ride. In Murder Mystery, New York cop (Sandler) and his wife (Aniston) set out on a vacation to Europe to reignite the spark in their marriage. But a random encounter with the billionaire Charles Cavendish (Luke Evans) puts them in the middle of a murder turning their holiday into an investigation.

The Netflix Original admittedly had mixed reviews from critics but it did manage to bag a People’s Choice Award. A sequel is currently in development.

The Woman in the Window

Director: Joe Wright

Writer: Tracy Letts


Cast: Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, Fred Hechinger, Wyatt Russell, Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Julianne Moore

If you are looking for something intense and mind-boggling, then The Woman in the Window is what you need. Child psychologist Anna Fox (Amy Adams) lives alone in her Manhattan apartment, separated from her husband and daughter. She is agoraphobic but manages her life and lifestyle well enough. She also has an investigative bone, which leads to her spying on her neighbors. But this backfires and she witnesses a crime, throwing her life into a downward spiral. With an ensemble cast and a deep psychological thriller angle, this is a movie you cannot miss.

Spenser Confidential

Director: Peter Berg

Writer: Sean O’Keefe and Brian Helgeland


Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Winston Duke, Alan Arkin, Iliza Shlesinger, Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron, Austin Post (Post Malone)

Adapted from the novel Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland by author Ace Atkins, Spenser Confidential follows the unfortunate events in the life of, well, Spenser (Mark Wahlberg). He’s a Boston police officer who loses his job and is sent to prison but it’s after he gets released that things start getting twisted. Two Boston cops get murdered, including Spenser’s ex-captain. So Spenser teams up with his roommate and joins hands with the crime world to solve these murders. It’s a mystery-comedy and it’s got lots of action with never a dull moment.


Director: Duncan Jones

Writer: Michael Robert Johnson and Duncan Jones

Cast: Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux, Robert Sheehan, Noel Clarke, Florence Kasumba, Dominic Monaghan, Sam Rockwell, Seynab Saleh, Robert Kazinsky


Mute is a follow-up to the 2009 sci-fi thriller Moon by Duncan Jones but you can easily watch one without the other.

When his girlfriend goes suddenly (and mysteriously) missing, mute bartender Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) must go on a desperate search to get her back. But his hunt takes him through the city’s seedy dark side. Set in a futuristic Berlin, Mute is a neo-noir sci-fi mystery that explores crime, violence, and a gritty future. Skarsgård stars in an intriguing role and Paul Rudd plays a character very unlike what we usually see from him. Wondering if Leo ever gets to speak or will his character remain silent (but very violent) till the end? Watch the movie.

Shimmer Lake

Director: Oren Uziel

Writer: Oren Uziel

Cast: Benjamin Walker, Wyatt Russell, Rainn Wilson, Adam Pally, John Michael Higgins, Ron Livingston, Stephanie Sigman, and Rob Corddry


The real experience of Shimmer Lake is in its narrative. The story is told and shot in reverse, spanning day-by-day accounts of a week’s event and that’s what makes this movie an interesting watch. Besides the mystery element, of course. The plot follows a small-town sheriff (Benjamin Walker) who is on a quest to solve the mystery of a bank robbery gone wrong and the three suspects involved, one of them being his own brother, Andy (Rainn Wilson).


Director: Ben Wheatley

Writer: Jane Goldman, Joe Shrapnel, Anna Waterhouse

Cast: Lily James, Armie Hammer, Kristin Scott Thomas, Keeley Hawes, Ann Dowd, Sam Riley


Based on a 1938 novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, this vintage British romance follows the life of Rebecca (Lily James). After a torrid love affair followed by a whirlwind wedding in Monte Carlo to a wealthy widower named Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), Rebecca accompanies her husband to his mansion in England. Newlywed and naïve, Rebecca soon encounters mysterious behavior from the housekeeper, who seems to be still devoted to Maxim’s dead wife. In case you are thinking if there’s a horror element (with a dead wife and all), then all we can say is that there are horrifying things than you might expect in the story. The rest, as they say, is the mystery and there’s no other way to find out but to watch it.

Enola Holmes

Director: Harry Bradbeer

Writer: Jack Thorne

Cast: Millie Bobby Brown, Sam Claflin, Henry Cavill, Helena Bonham Carter, Adeel Akhtar, Louis Partridge, Susie Wokoma,


We have read, seen, and heard enough of Sherlock Holmes (and occasionally Mycroft Holmes) solving the most unimaginable, unsolvable mysteries. Looks like being a supersleuth runs in the Holmes family

genes. Meet Enola (Millie Bobby Brown), the younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft, who is left alone with her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) after her brothers go off on their own life paths. On her 16th birthday, Enola finds her mother mysteriously missing and goes on an adventurous journey to London to find her. While her brothers do join the scene, her wit and investigative skills seem to outdo theirs. The movie is based on the first book in the eponymous YA fiction series by Nancy Springer.

Teenage romance, feminism in 1800s England, a refreshingly cheerful protagonist, and a journey of self-discovery – Enola Holmes has all the ingredients of a young adult story and a classic mystery movie. It’s really a must-watch.

Unknown Origins

Director: David Galán Galindo


Writer: David Galán Galindo and Fernando Navarro

Cast: Javier Rey, Antonio Resines, Brays Efe, Verónica Echegui, Ernesto Alterio, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Álex García, Carlos Areces

It’s one thing to be a comic book nerd and it’s a whole other thing to be a comic book-inspired serial killer. A very creative and painstaking job indeed. Based on David Galán Galindo’s novel of the same name, Unknown Origins (Spanish: Orígenes Secretos) is a Spanish movie about a killer on a rampage in Madrid, who uses characters from famous superhero origin stories to kill. The investigation falls upon inspector David (Javier Rey), who has an absolute aversion to comic books and believes that they are for adults who refuse to grow up. His criticism soon comes back to bite him in the hind, when he has to become a superhero to solve the murders. But that’s not all. David has to team up with his cosplay-loving boss, Norma (Verónica Echegui), much to his distaste.

A tad campy but colorful and fun, Unknown Origins is pure entertainment, whether you are a comic book fan or not.


The Invisible Guest

Director: Oriol Paulo

Writer: Oriol Paulo

Cast: Mario Casas, Bárbara Lennie, Blanca Martinez, Iñigo Gastesi, Francesc Orella, Blanca Martínez, José Coronado, Ana Wagener, Manel Dueso, San Yélamos, David Selvas, Paco Tous

The Invisible Guest (Spanish: Contratiempo), follows the story of Adrián Doria (Mario Casas), a young and successful businessman who wakes up in a locked hotel room, next to the body of his dead lover. He meets a celebrated defense attorney, Virginia Goodman (Blanca Martinez), who, over the course of one night, devises an exceptional strategy to save Adrian.

There’s a lot of legal drama involved but at the core, The Invisible Guest is a proper murder mystery. Despite mixed reviews, the movie was a box office success and inspired remakes in three different languages.

The Baztán Trilogy

Director: Fernando González Molina

Writer: Luiso Berdejo and Dolores Redondo

Cast: Marta Etura, Paco Tous, Francesc Orella, Elvira Mínguez, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Colin McFarlane

Based on the eponymous novels by Dolores Redondo, the Spanish crime thriller movie series comprises of three films – The Invisible Guardian, The Legacy of the Bones, and Offering to the Storm.


The stories follow police inspector Amaia Salazar (Marta Etura) and her experiences while solving crimes in her hometown of Baztán, in Navarre. The Invisible Guardian introduces Salazar – a former FBI agent and now a cop in the town of Pamplona, the capital of Navarre. She is sent on an investigation to Baztán to solve the mysterious ritualistic murder of a teenage girl, which appears to be connected to the local Basque mythology. While tracing the criminals, Salazar must also face her disturbing past. In the second movie, Salazar returns to the Baztán valley again to investigate a series of suicides that seem to have an uncanny pattern. In the final chapter of the trilogy, Salazar must uncover the origins of her nightmares that haunt her and dig into the darkest secrets of the Baztán valley. Shrouded in mystery and eerie crimes, this series is as intense as you can imagine. We recommend that you binge-watch all three to get the complete experience.


Director: Jeff Garlin

Writer: Jeff Garlin and Andrea Seigel

Cast: Jeff Garlin, Natasha Lyonne, Chris Redd, Dana Powell, Amy Sedaris, Leah Remini, Christine Woods, Steven Weber, Megan Ferguson, Timm Sharp, Hailee Keanna Lautenbach, Eddie Pepitone, Joe Kenda, Kaley Cuoco

What happens when personal problems get in the way of solving a murder? Unwanted complications, for starters. And if it’s someone like Gene Handsome (Jeff Garlin) leading the investigation, then expect nothing but all madness and chaos. LA detective Handsome is skilled at solving crimes but his personal problems keep butting in. When his neighbor’s babysitter is murdered in a gruesome way, things just get crazy for Handsome and his partner. As the creator, director, and lead actor in the movie, Jeff Garlin and brings every ounce of his comedic talent to this Netflix Original murder-comedy flick. Although a mystery, it’s super fun and perfect when you need a bit of both.



Director: Oriol Paulo

Writer: Oriol Paulo and Lara Sendim

Cast: Adriana Ugarte, Chino Darín, Javier Gutiérrez Álvarez, Álvaro Morte, Nora Navas

This sci-fi mystery thriller focuses on Vera (Adriana Ugarte), a young mother of one. On the night of an eerie thunderstorm, she manages to save a young boy but, in the process, finds her daughter missing. Vera’s simple act of good deed causes a chain of disturbing and unexpected events and disturbs the space-time continuum, altering reality for her and everyone around her. If you are in the mood for an exciting and mind-bending sci-fi mystery that leaves you burning with questions, then Mirage (Spanish: Durante la Tormenta) is the movie to watch.


A Fall from Grace

Director: Tyler Perry

Writer: Tyler Perry

Cast: Crystal Fox, Phylicia Rashad, Bresha Webb, Mehcad Brooks, Cicely Tyson, Tyler Perry, Adrian Pasdar

Tyler Perry’s first Netflix movie, A Fall from Grace follows the story of Grace Waters (Crystal Fox), who is accused of murdering her husband. Being a law-abiding, straight-arrow citizen, Grace pleads guilty. But her lawyer, Jasmine Bryant (Bresha Webb) has other opinions and believes that a larger conspiracy is at work. A sensational trial follows and unexpected information about everyone involved is brought into the light. This movie also features the late Cicely Tyson and serves as her last movie.

A classic Tyler Perry work, this movie has all the elements that you would expect in a good legal thriller – murder, mystery, trial, witnesses, and hard-hitting lawyers.


In the Shadow of the Moon

Director: Jim Mickle

Writer: Gregory Weidman and Geoff Tock

Cast: Boyd Holbrook, Michael C. Hall, Cleopatra Coleman, Bokeem Woodbine, Rudi Dharmalingam, Rachel Keller

The obsession for solving a mystery, no matter the cost, can come for… well, a huge cost. Like it happens for officer Thomas “Locke” Lockhart (Boyd Holbrook). Set in 1988, the story follows a string of mysterious killings in Philadelphia. Police officer Lockhart starts tracking the killer but the murders seem alien to anything that he has seen or known. When the killer resurfaces after nine years, Lockhart’s investigation sends him down a rabbit hole. From determined to desperate, Lockhart’s fixation on finding the killer and serving justice could cost him his job, personal life, and probably also his mind.


A sci-fi thriller at its core, this murder mystery has some fascinating moments where past, present, and future collide.

The Paramedic

Director: Carles Torras

Writer: David Desola and Hèctor Hernández Vicens

Cast: Mario Casas, Déborah François, Celso Bugallo, Raúl Jiménez, Pol Monen, Gerard Oms, Guillermo Pfening, Maria Rodríguez Soto


Revenge is best served not just cold but when deadly obsession takes over. The Paramedic (Spanish: El Practicante) is the story of (you guessed it) a paramedic named Angel Hernandez (Mario Casas) who loses his mobility in an accident. Unable to deal with his new situation, he gets fixated on the idea that his girlfriend, Vanesa (Déborah François) is cheating on him with his co-worker. His frustration leads him to gaslight and mentally torment Vanesa, pushing her to leave him. What happens next is the mystery and to find out, you have to watch the movie or it would all be spoilers. The mystery thriller may seem to have a classic “obsessed lover” trope but there’s more to the story than what meets the eyes.

The Occupant

Director: David Pastor and Àlex Pastor

Writer: David Pastor and Àlex Pastor

Cast: Javier Gutiérrez, Mario Casas, Bruna Cusí, David Selvas, David Verdaguer, Vicky Luengo

Unemployment can drive people to unimaginable extents. Like wanting to get the old life back, for instance. The Occupant (Spanish: Hogar) revolves around the story of Javier Munoz (Javier Gutiérrez), a successful advertising executive whose life turns upside down after he loses his job. He has to sell his plush apartment that he cannot afford anymore. Later, he realizes that the old keys are still with him. He suddenly gets wild about getting his apartment back and restoring his life, no matter what it takes. And so he takes some extreme steps, including stalking the new owners of the flat and wrecking their lives. You may think that there’s not much secret in this story per se, since we already know what happens and why. But a good mystery is also about the narrative and the character’s arc and how predictable or unpredictable they become. And that’s what this mystery thriller is all about.


Velvet Buzzsaw

Director: Dan Gilroy

Writer: Dan Gilroy

Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge, Natalia Dyer, Daveed Diggs, Billy Magnussen, John Malkovich

It’s not every day that you get to learn about a supernatural force interested in the world of art or seeking justice for forgotten artists. So, here’s something for you.

When an unknown artist leaves a stash of paintings, an ambitious gallery owner and her assistant steals them to showcase them in her gallery. But their art critic friend, upon researching the dead artist, discovers unsavory facts and fears that something is not right. Mysterious deaths and unsettling events follow. There’s horror, mystery, and lots of edge-of-the-seat moments in this thriller, along with a strong Nightcrawler vibe, which could be because of Jake Gyllenhaal leading both the movies. But be warned, this is not a film for everyone.


The Da Vinci Code

Director: Ron Howard

Writer: Akiva Goldsman

Cast: Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen, Alfred Molina, Jürgen Prochnow, Paul Bettany, Jean Reno

The first movie in the Robert Langdon series, The Da Vinci Code is based on Dan Brown’s bestselling novel of the same name. Both the book and the movie are a part of the quadrilogy involving Robert Langdon. The Da Vinci Code focuses on Langdon (Tom Hanks), a professor of symbology at Harvard University who becomes the prime suspect in an unusual murder that only leaves cryptic clues. Teaming up with cryptologist and police officer Sophie (Audrey Tatou), Langdon sets out on a quest for the Holy Grail. Literally!

A story of religious conspiracy, ancient secrets, and more, The Da Vinci Code invited a lot of controversies and criticism. But the film still rocked the box office and was a huge success, which means, that hundreds of people watched it and probably liked it too. If cryptic clues, religious history, and ancient treasure hunts are your wheelhouse, then this is a movie to watch. The Da Vinci Code was followed by its sequel – the next title on our list.


Angels & Demons

Director: Ron Howard

Writer: David Koepp and Akiva Goldsman

Cast: Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Ayelet Zurer, Stellan Skarsgård, Pierfrancesco Favino, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Armin Mueller-Stahl

Robert Langdon returns to solve another mystery but this time, it’s to save the world. Tom Hanks reprises his role as Langdon and joins Ayelet Zurer as Dr. Vittoria Vetra as they set out to recover missing antimatter, finding terrorists, the secret society of the Illuminati, and more.

Although released as a sequel to The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons is the first book of the series. So, if you want to go in order, watch this before The Da Vinci Code.

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its $70 Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling




Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its  Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

After years of anticipation from DC fans, Warner Bros finally found a way to introduce Barbara Gordon to live-action, announcing a solo movie for the hero with the developing Leslie Grace-led film. Batgirl, which finished filming earlier this year, has been scheduled to hit HBO Max sometime this year, however according to a number of new reports, Warner Bros doesn’t want Batgirl to see the light of day. Outlets are reporting that $70 million project is being scrapped after test screenings scared off the studio on the movie. 

Batgirl has been called “irredeemable” by a reported “top Hollywood source” found by The NY Post. Per the report, the movie will be “shelved,” but it has yet to be confirmed by the studio if it’s purely a rumor or a bombshell piece of news for one of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC movies.  

The Wrap backed up this report, sharing it had additionally heard via insiders that the movie “did not work” for studio executives – made by Bad Boys For Life and Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah for a reported budget of over $70 million (though it may have ultimately cost the studio $90 million by the time cameras finished rolling). 

The news could perhaps be the product of the recent change in Warner Bros’ leadership, with CEO David Zaslav becoming the new big boss since WB merged with Discovery. There was some rumored talk of the previous WB chair Toby Emmerich considering Batgirl for a theatrical release rather than a HBO Max exclusive, however, but the new reports suggest the film isn’t testing to the level of a big-screen project and may be removed from getting any kind of release. 

Batgirl would not only introduce Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, but is features a stacked cast including the return of Michael Keaton as Batman and J.K. Simmons as James Gordon. Brendan Fraser plays the film’s villain, Ted Carson a.k.a. Firefly. It’s arguably unheard of for a project as high-profile as this one to lose any form of avenue for distribution. 


Apparently, a move like this is not uncharacteristic for Warner Bros’ new CEO, however, who previously shut down the failed streaming service CNN+ weeks after it launched (it reportedly cost $300 million to put together). There is some restructuring of DC projects currently underway behind the scenes, with David Zaslav on the search for a someone to fill a role much like Marvel boss Kevin Feige has at Marvel Studios. 

Coming off San Diego Comic-Con late last month, Marvel Studios announced and showcased a lineup of projects planned until 2025 including two more Avengers films, whilst DC did not bring anything from Batgirl to its panel. Instead, Warner Bros chose to only focus on Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, both of which have set release dates later this year. Warner Bros. Discovery is set to report its earnings for this past business quarter on Thursday; it’s possible we’ll learn more then.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere




High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

What time is it? Summer time!

Well, that’s what the students of East High are saying in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. I know, the name is a mouthful, but honestly, this show is a whole lot of fun and if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. The first two seasons were great, from the songs in Season 1 to the drama in Season 2, and when it was announced that the series would be getting a Season 3 and 4, I was all on board. 

Now that I have watched the first episode of Season 3, I am even more excited for the next episodes to come, and that premiere has me all in my feelings – specifically these five. 


Man, this show makes me so nostalgic for when I was younger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I would never travel back in time to then, just because I was so young and didn’t know half the stuff I know now, but there is just something about listening to the soundtrack of some of these original songs from the High School Musical movies that just get me. While we don’t get many songs in the first episode, we get the classic, “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2 within the few three minutes of the show and ugh, the memories. 


If you were a tween or kid back in 2007 and watched HSM2 when it premiered on Disney Channel, you know this song just as well as I do. And for years, I sang this song on the last day of school – heck, I still sing it now whenever warm weather comes around and I’m two years out of college. I love this music, and I can already tell from just this first episode that this season is going to make me so nostalgic. 


I’m really curious to see what they’re going to do with this camp in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

For those who don’t know, the first two seasons of this series were pretty much based around the first film’s premise. The show takes place in a world where the movies exist, but instead of the actors from the High School Musical cast that we’re familiar with, we are introduced to students who are auditioning for those iconic roles. And over the last two seasons, we’ve watched them grow into brilliant performers while singing in productions of both High School Musical and Beauty and the Beast, with covers and original songs all along the way. 

But the whole entire point of the first two seasons was that this show took place in the same high school where the movies were filmed. So it’s only natural to think that the second season might end up happening at the country club that was in High School Musical 2, but nope – we are at a summer camp, something that was never talked about in the original movies. 

The arrival of everyone coming to this summer camp is fun, but it makes me wonder how they’re going to include the songs from High School Musical 2 into this season when it’s not at the same location as the film, but it’s still interesting to watch, nonetheless. 


Dude, I love Olivia Rodrigo – and I mean that. This girl has done so much these last two years and watching her in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is always a joy. 


But what really makes me so proud of her is that I’m not even just proud of the actress, but the character as well. Nini is this young star who is a little afraid to take these big risks but she does so anyway, knowing that she has this big break she can’t lose, which was the big theme of this first episode. She goes away on this road trip with a producer over the summer so she can record songs, giving her that shot, and I am so proud of her for doing that. 

Olivia Rodrigo plays her perfectly, and while I know that her character was demoted to a guest role thanks to Rodrigo’s budding music career, I can’t help but be proud, because wow, she has blown up. It makes me want to watch her documentary on Disney+ again


I know I said earlier on that I was curious as to how they’re going to really change up this season with this new location. But, about twenty minutes in, I genuinely was feeling eager to see where this show would go – specifically the dynamics of new characters. 

For two seasons, we have pretty much been surrounded by the same characters, and while we have grown to love them, I think this season was the one where we truly needed a change in not only scenery, but characters as well. And this first episode brought a ton of them in. 

One of the scenes that got me really eager to see what happens with these new characters was when Gina, Ashlyn and Kourtney, three clear as day theater kids, find out they have to share a cabin with Gadget (a new character) and two other girls – and you can clearly tell at first that they are not feeling the vibe, and you can almost smell the problems from a mile away. 

That screams great television, and it’s got me wondering how much more drama this show is going to produce over the next episodes with these new dynamics. I’m so eager to see. 



Seeing Corbin Bleu in the premiere episode made me very excited to see where this fictionalized version of him is going to go next. 

Usually, when it comes to the original members from the High School Musical movies, we’ll get some pictures from them from the old high school – like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron both recently taking pics there in 2022 – but I didn’t think anyone would come back to the show. We had Lucas Grabeel and Kaycee Stroh in Season 1 but no one in Season 2, so I’m super pumped to see Corbin Bleu back for this season.

Not only that, but Jason Earles. Do you guys know who he is? The moment I saw him as Dewey, the director of Camp Shallow Lake, I practically screamed. This man is Disney Channel royalty. He was not only a co-star on Hannah Montana but also on Kickin’ It and I can’t believe he is in another Disney show and it has me so excited. 

I’m not sure how often he and Bleu are going to be on the show, but I know for a fact that those two appearing on that stage has me excited for what this season holds and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Could Zac Efron be next?

What are you guys looking forward to with Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series? All I know is that if I don’t get a cover of “Fabulous” by Carlos in this season, I will riot. I demand it, Disney+!

The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie




The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie

Book adaptations of big-time novels always seem to go over well with audiences, and have for plenty of years, with movie sagas such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings taking over the box office. But, a newcomer is arriving on the movie scene, one which should have been adapted almost as soon as it came out, if you ask me.

The School for Good and Evil, an amazing addition to the fantasy genre, is finally getting its own adaptation into the film world – but not in theaters. However, it will be appearing as a Netflix movie, on the popular streaming website. However, what else do we know about this upcoming film? What is it going to be about? Who is going to be in it? There are plenty of things that you might not know, but we do. Here are some quick things we know about the upcoming Netflix film.

The School For Good And Evil Release Date Is Set For October 21

Mark your calendars, fantasy lovers, as The School for Good and Evil is going to be coming out as part of the 2022 movie release schedule! Announced with the official poster from the Netflix Twitter page, it was confirmed that The School for Good and Evil would release on the popular streaming platform in Fall 2022, specifically on October 21. 

Talk about a great addition to all the fun Halloween movies we’ll be watching during that time of year – I can always use a little good and evil in my life.

The School For Good And Evil Has A Star-Studded Cast

With an adaptation like The School for Good and Evil, we all knew that the cast needed to be amazing. And, luckily, there’s no shortage of amazing additions to this Netflix movie. First, let’s take a look at the two leads characters of the film, Sophie and Agatha, where the story begins. These two roles will be played by Sophia Anna Caruso, known for her role in the Broadway musical Beetlejuice, and Sofia Wylie, who stars on a Disney+  show you really should watch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Wylie is especially excited for her role in The School for Good and Evil. In an interview with MTV, she talked about her part as Agatha and how she’s excited to “bring some realness” to the character that hadn’t been seen before. She described Agatha’s struggles with internal and external beauty through her own experience, saying that it’s something she can relate to and that it’s an important message to teach.

That’s something that I personally can really relate to, that voice inside of your head, how much power it has. I deal with those doubts and those insecurities. And I think I can really bring some realness to Agatha in that sense because I know, as a teenage girl, it can be very difficult to overcome that voice.

Adding on to this cast, Deadline reported that two megastars, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, signed on for two of the main roles in the upcoming film. Theron is set to play Lady Lesso, and Washington will portray a teacher at the school, Professor Dovey.

In addition to these two, in another article, Deadline reported that Laurence Fishburne, known for his roles in The Matrix trilogy and many other films, as well as action star Michelle Yeoh, from movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Crazy Rich Asians, and her TV role in Star Trek: Discovery, have stepped up to be in The School for Good and Evil. Fishburne will play the Schoolmaster – a role that sounds quite fitting for someone of his talents, and Yeoh will portray another teacher, Professor Anemone.

Also for the film, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, and Freya Theodora Parks will play Anadil, Dot and Hester, three young women who are a part of The Coven in The School for Good and Evil, as confirmed by a behind-the-scenes look with the author of the original novel, Soman Chainani on YouTube.

Already, this film is shaping up to be filled to the brim with some of the Hollywood elite. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do with the material they are given, because it’s about to get magical.

The School For Good And Evil Will Follow The Bestselling Book Series

For those who don’t know, The School for Good and Evil is composed of several novels in a series. Netflix confirmed that this new movie will be based on the series by Soman Chainani, and from the premise of the film, it’s looking to be exactly like the first novel.

As confirmed by the description from the trailer for the new movie on YouTube, The School for Good and Evil is going to follow two best friends, Sophia and Agatha, who are swept into a world of trying to balance both good and evil when they are given different roles, but this in turn causes their lives to turn upside down. 

I’m already on board for a story like this. Two opposing personalities who end up being trained in styles that they thought they weren’t aligned with? Thrown into unlikely situations? Fantasy elements? My god, I can almost feel the franchise coming. Netflix has a great addition with this one.

Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig Is Directing The School For Good And Evil

I don’t think there could have been another perfect choice for the director for The School for Good and Evil than Paul Feig. The legendary director has produced some of the biggest comedic hits in the last ten years. For example, Feig directed the smash-hit Bridesmaids back in 2011, the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters, the Emilia Clarke Christmas comedy Last Christmas, the comedy thriller, A Simple Favor, and so many others.

Besides movies, Paul Feig has also directed multiple episodes of several incredible sitcoms, such as The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The School for Good and Evil novels have an amazing comedic element to them, and I can only imagine what a comedic director like Paul Feig will bring to the table in this new film.

Finding Neverland Screenwriter David Magee Wrote The Screenplay For The School For Good And Evil

When it comes to an adapted screenplay, you always have to make sure that you find the right person to do it, because with novels, there are so many details that need to somehow make it into the movie. The School for Good and Evil found its screenwriter in David Magee.


Magee is a perfect choice, because not only has he been around the business for some time, he’s had plenty of experience in writing fantasy, working on films such as the Academy-Award winning Life of Pi, the Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, and wrote the screenplay for Finding Neverland, the story of the author who created the legendary character, Peter Pan. Truly, he has great experience up his sleeves, and I’m eager to see what he’ll do with the fantastic story that is The School for Good and Evil.
