'Mufasa' Roars at CinemaCon But Creepy 'Alien: Romulus' Was Disney’s Pride and Joy

Plus, my thoughts on 'Captain America: Brave New World' and 'Deadpool & Wolverine,' and Pamela Adlon's comedy 'Babes.'

Happy Monday, gang! I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend despite the weather yesterday. I was just glad to sneak in some basketball on Saturday before it started to rain.

This weekend, I saw Alex Garland’s provocative thriller Civil War and Richard Gadd’s Netflix series Baby Reindeer, both of which I plan to write about later this week, so stay tuned, as both are “talkers,” as they say in the biz.

I also saw the Max documentary about the Oklahoma City bombing, which is nearing its 30th anniversary, and I watched the Apple TV+ documentary Girls State, which wasn’t quite as good as Boys State, though that may have been the whole point of the film, which is all about inequity.

In addition to Disney’s CinemaCon report card, today’s newsletter features a review of Pamela Adlon’s upcoming comedy Babes, and stories about Keanu Reeves’ latest voice role, the fate of Kathryn Bigelow’s Netflix project Aurora, a spy comedy spoof featuring Jeff Bezos, a couple of Cormac McCarthy adaptations from writer-director Jeff Nichols, a Dick Wolf series that may move to Peacock, and comedian Noah Gardenswartz.
