New on Netflix in February 2017: ‘Sausage Party,’ ‘Finding Dory,’ and more

Published

on

Yesterday was the first official day of February and with it came just a handful of the many new arrivals that will be hitting Netflix this month including Disney’s box office smash Finding Dory, The Blair Witch Project, Twilight, Babe, and more. Want the complete list of what’s coming to the streaming service this month? Check it out below along with our top picks to help you create the ultimate binge-watching list. Don’t worry, you can thank us later.

Sausage Party (available to stream on February 23)

You can’t get much better than an R-rated animated movie about a sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens to them when they become “chosen” to leave the grocery store. Sausage Party, which features the vocal talents of Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek. It’s fun for the whole family—or maybe not.

Finding Dory (available to stream now)

Finding Dory hit theaters last summer to worldwide critical acclaim and box office success and now it is available for you to stream from the comfort of your home. Unlike Sausage Party, the follow-up to 2003’s Finding Nemo is more than safe for you to watch with the whole family and follows Dory, the forgetful little blue fish voiced by Ellen DeGenres, who suddenly remembers she has a family who may be looking for her. Despite her forgetfulness, she decides to set out on a life-changing quest to find her family with the help of Marlin and Nemo, as well as a number of new characters including Hank, a cantankerous octopus, Bailey, a beluga whale who can help navigate, and Destiny, a nearsighted whale shark who just bumps into a lot of things.

The Blair Witch Project (available to stream now)

Feel like having a scary movie night? Excellent, because The Blair Witch Project is available for you to stream in all of its creepy, found footage gloriousness right now. The film follows three student filmmakers who make their way into the Black Hills near Burkittsville, Maryland in 1994 to film a documentary about the legend known as the Blair Witch. Oddly enough, the trio disappears during their journey, but all of their video equipment is recovered years later showing what could have happened to them.

Superbad (available to stream on February 4)

Superbad, hailed as one of the best and most unique comedy movies of our time, was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg during their teenage years and follows two high school kids played by Jonah Hill and Michael Cera who want nothing more than to lose their virginity before they head off to college after the summer ends. To do that, they need to get enough liquor for the big party happening that night and enlist the help of McLovin, played by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and go on a hilarious chase for a few packs of booze while dodging a few cops and angry boyfriends along the way. If you’re a fan of raunchy comedies, Superbad should definitely be on the top of your watch list.

And now, here’s the complete list of everything that will be coming and going on Netflix this month.

Elvis Presley will become a spy for the US government in Netflix’s new animated series ‘Agent King’

Published

So, uh, with today being the 42nd anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley and all, Netflix announced that they’ve given a series order to Agent King, which is described as an “adult animated action-comedy series” that centers around the iconic music legend becoming — as the title suggests — a special agent.

As if that wasn’t strange enough, here’s the official logline for the show: “Elvis Presley trades in his white jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves — all while holding down his day job as the King Of Rock And Roll.”

Priscilla Presley and John Eddie created and serve as executive producers on the series, which also has Archer‘s Mike Arnold showrunning, writing, and co-executive producing.

“From the time Elvis was a young boy he always dreamed of being the superhero fighting crime and saving the world! Agent King lets him do just that,” said Priscilla Presley. “My co-creator John Eddie and I are so excited to be working with Netflix and Sony Animation on this amazing project and getting the chance to show the world an Elvis they haven’t seen before.”

Yeah, I really don’t know what the fuck to make of any of this, but as someone who loves and takes pleasure in being entertained by weird shit, I suppose Agent King will be right up my alley and is definitely going on my watchlist as soon as it drops on Netflix.

Ewan McGregor is in talks to reprise his iconic role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a new Disney+ series

Published

on

Obi-Wan Kenobi
LUCASFILM LTD.

As you may recall, we were all pretty damn disappointed around these parts last year when it was revealed that Disney and Lucasfilm had stopped developing an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff starring Ewan McGregor due to the poor box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story (which really wasn’t all that bad of a movie, if you ask me.)

However, this latest Obi-Wan-related development has certainly piqued our interest, as THR is reporting that McGregor is once again in talks to reprise his role as the iconic Jedi Knight — but it isn’t for a feature film, this time around.

Indeed, Disney and Lucasfilm have now begun to develop an Obi-Wan Kenobi series for their upcoming Disney+ streaming service, though it appears details about it are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being, according to THR.

Disney’s D23 Expo is just around the corner, however, so it seems more than likely that we’ll be getting an official announcement for the Obi-Wan series (as well as an update or two on The Mandalorian and the Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna, both of which we haven’t heard anything about in a minute) once that event kicks off in Anaheim later this month on August 23, so be sure to stay tuned for more.

Grab a mother-effin’ beer: Nathan Fielder is returning to television with two new projects for HBO

Published

It’s been nearly an entire year (!) since Nathan For You ended its run on Comedy Central and, ever since then, fans have been wondering what was in store next for writer, director, and comedian Nathan Fielder — and now we know! Well, kinda.

According to Variety, Fielder has inked a one-year overall deal over at HBO where he will serve as executive producer on the upcoming series How To…With John Wilson as well as an untitled comedy pilot, which he will also write, direct, and star in.

Hosted by Wilson, the half-hour, first-person documentary series follows an anxious New Yorker as he “attempts to give everyday advice while dealing with his own personal issues. Acting as both cameraman and narrator, he covertly documents the lives of fellow New Yorkers in a comic odyssey of self-discovery, inevitably making the audience comfortable with the awkward contradictions of modern life.”

As for the untitled comedy pilot, plot details are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being, but here’s to hoping it’s something just as lovely and brilliant and delightful as Nathan For You was because I desperately need both a series like that and Nathan Fielder back in my life and on my television screen immediately.
