A nature doc, but make it ASMR.

The Apple TV Plus series Earthsounds is exactly what it, well, sounds like: a multi-part documentary that focuses on the soundscapes of the natural world. It’s narrated by Tom Hiddleston and is coming very soon, premiering on February 23rd.

The final trailer for Netflix’s live-action Avatar is a VFX bonanza.

We’re only a few days out from the premiere of Netflix’s live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the series’ final trailer gives us our best look yet at what sort of VFX-heavy action set pieces the streamer has cooked up for the Gaang.

Toyota made an anime and it looks Supra.

Did you have a car company producing an anime series on your Friday afternoon bingo card? I sure didn’t. But the show is real and it’s called GRIP, will have five episodes released weekly starting February 26th, and is described as “a battle between the human spirit and computer control.” If we’re lucky, it’ll be something like an animated spiritual successor to The Hire series.

The second half of Invincible season 2 drops on March 14th.

It feels like the first half of Invincible’s second season only just dropped, but Amazon’s already gearing up to debut the second half next month.

*Jack Black voice* Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, Peaches, Peaches.

Nintendo just dropped a new trailer for Princess Peach: Showtime, and it includes four new versions of the Mushroom Kingdom royal: mermaid, figure skater, thief, and superhero. Basically, she has range, and the game looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun as Nintendo continues to send off the original Switch on a high note. Showtime launches on March 22nd.

A love story, with AI.

One of my favorite movies at TIFF last year was The Beast, an era-spanning romance starring Léa Seydoux and George MacKay as star-crossed lovers who keep meeting in different time periods, one of which is a near-future dystopia in which AI runs basically every facet of human life. It’s coming to theaters in select cities on April 5th.

How to slay your dragon.

The latest trailer for Netflix’s Damsel has dangerous dragons, elaborate fantasy costumes, and Millie Bobby Brown getting tossed off a bridge. Which is to say: it looks like a blast. And the movie starts streaming pretty soon, hitting Netflix on March 8th.

Nier Splat-omata.

Splatoon 3’s new Side Order DLC mixes roguelite dungeon crawling action with some Nier Automata vibes. In Side Order, inklings will ascend a tower completing ever-changing objectives in a quest to the top. Use color chips to enhance your weapons, abilities, and paint colors, but should you fail, you’re busted all the way back to level one to begin again.

Side Order launches on the Switch February 22nd.

Golf with friends.

What the Golf? finally has a PlayStation release date. In a new trailer, developer Triband announced that the wacky-ass golf game will launch on PlayStation on March 14th, joining iOS, PC, the Switch, and the Apple Vision Pro.

Netflix teases us with 48 seconds of F1: Drive to Survive.

Season six of Netflix’s Formula 1 docuseries (that all of the others are trying to copy) arrives on February 23rd, ready to recap last season’s action (and inevitable ending) that set up the offseason madness racing fans are currently dealing with.

We’ll see if it has any hints about Lewis Hamilton’s upcoming Ferrari switch, Guenther Steiner’s exit from Haas, or whatever is being investigated about Christian Horner. In the meantime, has anyone watched the NASCAR attempt, Full Speed?

The new Twisters trailer is a storm chaser’s dream.

Warner Bros. first Twister movie was very much a public service announcement about how dangerous running towards tornadoes can be. But that message seems to have been lost on everyone in the first trailer for director Lee Isaac Chung’s upcoming sequel Twisters due out July 19th.

Haven’t you heard? Film props are the hottest new luxury collectibles.

There have always been collectors passionate about owning pieces of their favorite films, but in recent years, the business of buying and selling movie props has become an entirely different ballgame.

It might seem silly to liken film props to the kinds of luxury goods that fetch thousands at auctions. But for the people featured in director Juan Pablo Reinoso’s new documentary Mad Props (in select theaters February 23rd), the prop-collecting life couldn’t be more serious.

In the new trailer for Apple’s next Peanuts movie, it’s finally Franklin’s turn to be the star.

As big a deal as it was when Franklin became the first Black Peanuts character (in the wake of Martin Luther King’s assassination, mind you), it’s been rare to see him really meaningfully involved in the lives of Charlie Brown and his other friends.

But after years of being a essentially background character, Franklin’s about to get his due in an all-new Apple TV Plus animated special out February 16th.

Aldis Hodge’s Parallel Forest remake looks like a haunting take on the multiverse.

In Chinese director Lei Zheng’s 2019 film Parallel Forest, a grieving mother’s spiral into depression following the death of her son takes a strange turn when she encounters an alternate reality version of herself.

And from the looks of Parallel, Vertical Entertainment’s upcoming remake starring brothers Aldis and Edwin Hodge, and Danielle Deadwyler, the new film’s going to be just as haunting as the original when it hits theaters on February 23rd.

I can’t stop watching the Death Stranding 2 trailer.

There were a lot of games featured in last night’s PlayStation livestream, but I can’t get Hideo Kojima’s latest out of my mind. There’s just so much going on in the 9-minute-long clip: glistening demon cats, talking puppets, creepy hand masks, electric guitar swordfights, and of course plenty of weird little babies. Also, George Miller is there. It’s going to be a long wait until 2025.

The video game remakes just keep coming.

2024 has already been packed with them, thanks to The Last of Us Part II, Another Code, and Persona 3, among others. Now, we can add the 2015 horror game Until Dawn to that list. The new version has been rebuilt for both PC and PS5 and is due to launch this year.

A deeper look at Team Ninja’s latest.

We already knew that Rise of the Ronin was coming out on the PS5 on March 22nd, but here’s another look at the action RPG, with a heavy focus on the actual gameplay at its core.

Here comes Judas.

It’s been well over a year since Ken Levine’s Ghost Story studio revealed its first project, a narrative shooter called Judas, so it’s about time we got a new trailer that gave a better sense of what the sci-fi story is all about. My main takeaway? It looks weird as hell. (Mostly in a good way.) Judas still doesn’t have a release date, and it’s coming to Xbox and PC as well as the PS5.

According to Ghost Story, the game takes place:

aboard the Mayflower, a spacefaring city whose citizens are trained to tear each other apart for even the most minor infractions, and where machines control every aspect of business, art, and government. You, as Judas, are the driver of every event in a mysterious story with a new cast of characters to get to know — and to change — in a world where every decision you make affects how the story unfolds.

Cult hit Dave the Diver is making its way to PlayStation in April. Even more surprising? The game is getting a free Godzilla-themed update in May.

Welcome (back) to hell.

Things kicked off with a brief new trailer for Sony’s sci-fi bug shooter Helldivers 2. It’s been almost a decade since the original game, but the wait for the sequel won’t be too long now: it launches on the PS5 and PC on February 8th.

While we wait for State of Play to start,

it’s a good time to re-watch the trippy-ass reveal trailer for Death Stranding 2, as we’ll likely be seeing more of the sequel this afternoon. If you want to watch along with the PlayStation event live, the details are right here.

Amazon’s Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy is coming to cure what ails you.

It feels like it’s only a matter of time until Amazon really starts pushing itself as a full-on healthcare provider for its millions of Prime subscribers.

In the meantime, though, the mega store / streaming platform’s gearing up for the February 23rd launch of The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy, which feels a lot like the kind of show you’d check out while waiting in a doctor’s office.

The OG Ghostbusters MVPs would like a word.

Honestly, nobody really seems all that excited in the latest trailer for Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. But it’s about damn time Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts — the original movie’s real MVPs — really got a chance to flex their ghost busting skills front and center.
