In NYC, it’s been raining since last night with no end in sight today. It’s the perfect weather to get cozy with some movies. Or some movie trailers, at least.

Let’s just get Henry Cavill’s terrible haircut out of the way. Matthew Vaughn (the Kingsman franchise, Kick-Ass) has brought together a killer cast for a movie that looks like a mashup of Kingsman, Red, and Romancing The Stone.

In Argylle, Bryce Dallas Howard stars as the author of a series of best-selling espionage novels. When her plots begin to mirror the covert actions of an IRL spy organization, she finds herself caught up in an actual spy adventure.

Argylle also stars Sam Rockwell, John Cena, Ariana DeBose, Dua Lipa, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, Sofia Boutella, and Samuel L. Jackson. The cat, who I could have sworn was 100% CGI based on this trailer, is played by Chip. Chip is owned by Matthew Vaughn’s wife. Matthew Vaughn’s wife is supermodel Claudia Schiffer. That is new information to me. Good for them.

Argylle opens in theaters on February 2nd.

In a very different story about a very different writer, Obituary tells the tale of a small-town obituarist in Ireland who decides murdering people is the best job security. The series, which will stream on Hulu, stars Siobhán Cullen, Michael Smiley (Bad Sisters), and Ronan Raftery (The Terror).

Streaming dates on Hulu have not yet been announced, but it sounds like we can look forward to this being available sometime in October.

If you missed the news earlier this week, Donna Noble and The Doctor are back as part of the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary extravaganza in a three-episode special event. YAY! Catherine Tate is breathtakingly funny. She and David Tennant are an excellent Tardis team, and the only downside here is that we’re only getting three episodes. Boo.

The three-part event will air/stream sometime in November on the BBC in the UK and on Disney+ in the rest of the world. Allons-y!

This week’s Lagniappe is Kristen Stewart’s ghost-hunting series that’s being described as “Gay Scooby-Doo.” Stewart has partnered with the team behind Queer Eye to executive produce and narrate Living For The Dead, which will follow queer ghost hunters Alex Le May (the tech expert), Juju Bae (the resident witch), Ken Boggle (the tarot card reader), Logan Taylor (the psychic) and Roz Hernandez (the paranormal researcher) as they investigate reported hauntings around the country.

I’m not a fan of either reality shows or ghost-hunting shows, but this one looks pretty funny and fabulous. All eight episodes will be available to stream on Hulu beginning October 18th.
