2019 was a difficult year for all of us. This year has not gotten off to a good start either with world war three, the possibility of another plague and of course, climate change. We can only cope with all of this in the best way we know- by ignoring all of our problems and waiting for the latest TV series and movies.
In terms of entertainment news, 2020 does offer some hope for the future. So, let’s not think about the impending doom just yet. Take a look at these trailers and bask in the glory of ignorance!
1. Black Widow
After years of requests, Marvel is finally working on the new Black Widow movie, featuring Scarlet Johansson. This week, Marvel released another teaser for the movie that finally revealed the antagonist. You can also see some of Black Widow’s origin story, where she is reunited with her trained killer family, trying to break out of the profession.
However, she fights off with an army of widows, as well as the main villain- the Taskmaster. The taskmaster featured in the 1980s The Avengers #196 comic, where he was described as a villain who learned his ability to master any task, just by watching someone perform it, at a tender age. However, as he grew up, he used his gifts for evil, while learning the style of enemies to defeat them with ease.
In the Black Widow trailer, there seems to be a discrepancy in the costume of the Taskmaster from how it is described in the original comic. However, he does carry his original sword and shield, which is pretty evident in the trailer’s footage. Let’s wait and see what the movie brings. The expected date of release for Black Widow is May 1st, 2020.
2. Guns Akimbo
Let’s face it, if we can watch Daniel Radcliffe play a corpse for one and a half hour, we can watch him in anything. However, his new movie, Guns Akimbo, is much better than we expected. This action comedy film features the star in a new light, where he plays an internet troll who ultimately ends up having to fight an unknown individual, played by the gorgeous Samara Weaving, with guns bolted to his hand. The movie will be released on March fifth, 2020.
3. Next In Fashion
Imagine, Project Runway, but with Tan France! Netflix’s new reality competition show, Next In Fashion features everything Project Runway, but much better. This fashion competition series is hosted by none other than Queer Eye’s Tan France and the British Model and designer, Alexa Chung. In this series, eighteen fashion designers go head to head to deliver the most avant-garde, trending and eye-catching outfits.
The designers will compete for the life-changing prize of $250,000, along with the prospect of launching their own clothing line with luxury retailer Net-a-Porter. In the current entertainment news, people are already calling it the new and improved Project Runway! The show is set to be released on Netflix on 29th January 2020.
4. AJ and the Queen
This year, Netflix may have peeked into our wishlist for TV series, because it is bringing us life!!!! If you can’t get enough of RuPaul on Drag Race, watch the trailer of AJ and the Queen. This new drama-comedy series, created and starring RuPaul Charles features a story of a drag queen who travels across America with a sassy ten-year-old orphaned sidekick. The show was released on 10th January 2020.
5. The Goop Lab with Gwenyth Paltrow
Gwenyth Paltrow is a star of another controversy with her new Netflix short series, The Goop Lab With Gwenyth Paltrow. This six-episode series features strange healing practices in each episode ranging from psychedelics, cold therapy, female pleasure, anti-ageing, energy healing and psychics. The show has already generated a lot of public opinions, even though it has not yet been released. People are more concerned about the loose usage of the term, ‘Lab’, as well as the fact that Netflix is supporting pseudo-science on this show.
Some people also believe that this is just another attempt by Paltrow to manipulate women and profit off of their money. Regardless, we would still be watching the show, when it will be released on January 24th, 2020. For scientific reasons of course!
