MGM+, which is a channel no one seems to have been aware of prior to this trailer being released, will air a series this August based on Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord Chronicles called The Winter King. It’s the latest entry into the ever-growing collection of King Arthur properties, the best of which is still 1981’s Excalibur as far as I’m concerned.

The Winter King stars Iain De Caestecker (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Arthur Pendragon, Eddie Marsan as Uther, Ellie James (I May Destroy You) as Nimue, Nathaniel Martello-White as Merlin, and Jordan Alexandra (Mammals) as Guinevere.

It premieres August 20th on MGM+.

In case you forgot this was happening, Prime Video has a remake of Mr. And Mrs. Smith coming out this fall. The series stars Donald Glover and Maya Erskine (Plus One, Pen15) as the titular characters. Amazon released a teaser as part of their Prime Day upfront montage. But it’s Donald Glover, so I couldn’t resist. Here’s a link to the Rotten Tomatoes tweet about it. And Pitchfork also published a story on it here.

This week, Disney+ also dropped an official trailer for the new Ahsoka series. The Star Wars nerds are either going to love this or hate it with the fire of a million suns. The series stars Rosario Dawson, Hayden Christensen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Lars Mikkelsen, and Ray Stevenson in his final role as Baylan Skroll.

Ahsoka premiers on Disney+ August 23rd.

This week’s lagniappe is this strange little web project from Steven Soderbergh that I stumbled across, Command Z. The series/episodic film/web project stars Michael Cera, Roy Wood Jr., Chloe Radcliffe, Liev Schriber, Zoe Winters, and a tricked-out clothes dryer. It’s about time travel and mind control and will only be available to stream via Soderbergh’s website, extension765.com. Here’s a link to the trailer. I’m not sure what to make of it, but I’m always willing to give Soderbergh a chance.
