So many new TV shows and movies are coming down the pipe, it’s hard to keep track of all of them. I’ve been digging through the press releases and picking out the ones that I personally am most pumped about. Take, for instance, Sicario from Director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) and screenwriter Taylor Sheridan. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Sheridan plays Deputy Chief David Hale on the FX series Sons of Anarchy. He’s apparently a writer in his spare time and a pretty damn good one, as well.
Sicario is about an anti-drug-cartel task force and stars Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt is at the heart of it all, playing an FBI Agent who is drafted into the group. When I saw Blunt’s name attached to Sicario, my first thought was, “What is SHE doing here?” I asked the same question about her role in Edge of Tomorrow though, and Blunt absolutely killed it in that movie. There’s already Oscar buzz around this one, specifically for Blunt’s performance so let’s keep our fingers crossed for her. Sicario will open in theaters September 18th.
One of the new TV shows that’s getting loads of press is Aziz Ansari’s Master of None for Netflix. He has reteamed with Parks and Recreation writer Alan Yang AND is getting help from Dave Becky (Louie) and David Miner (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). The show is about an actor who’s trying to make it in New York and it seems like it HAS to be hilarious with all these funny people involved. That said, I couldn’t find ANY VIDEO of Master of None so I have no idea if it’s funny or not. Instead, I’ll just post this clip of Ansari doing stand-up and OF COURSE it contains profanity. Believe me, I sat around and watched his clips for a straight HOUR and couldn’t find anything clean. Even the stuff that was BLEEPED was so foul I couldn’t use it so this is the best I could do. Master of None debuts on Netflix November 6th and don’t forget to turn your volume way down when you watch this:
