Exclusive: Comedian Tom Green Directing Unique Documentary About His Rise to Fame in the '90s

Plus, a slew of release date news, and my thoughts, finally, on Wes Ball's sequel 'Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.'

Happy Thursday, folks!

Outside of release date news, it was a fairly slow news day, so I checked out Muta’Ali’s documentary MoviePass, MovieCrash, which hits HBO on May 29. I was never an active MoviePass subscriber, though I did invest $100 into the Helios & Matheson stock, which I believe was worthless within three weeks. The doc does a good job of explaining how Black co-founders Stacy Spikes and Hamet Watt had their company stolen from them, only for it to be run into the ground by white execs Mitch Lowe and Ted Farnsworth. the latter duo are currently awaiting trial, and both of them belong in jail if you ask me.

I also watched Robert Lorenz’s Irish crime flick In the Land of Saints and Sinners last night, and I’d definitely recommend it, so long as you can put up with the thick Irish accents (my friend insisted on subtitles). Liam Neeson plays a hitman who vows to stop killing, only to make an exception for a child abuser, which only brings more trouble to his doorstep. That trouble comes in the form of Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin), who is terrific here, though the standout may very well be Jack Gleeson, better known as King Joffrey from Game of Thrones. I’d never really seen his work before because I didn’t really watch that show, but he was great. He’d be perfect for an Edgar Allan Poe biopic or as Rupert Friend’s brother in a movie or TV show. But I digress…

In tonight’s newsletter, you’ll read about Tom Green’s new documentary, new movies featuring Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, hot projects from James Frey and the writers of Booksmart, the return of Shogun, the sad death of Chris Pratt’s stuntman, and my thoughts on Wes Ball’s Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes as well as the trailer for Will Ferrell and Reese Witherspoon’s new comedy You’re Cordially Invited.
