— by Night Flier
Upcoming entertainment and why you might want to see it.
Special note on this issue: Due to the Covid-19 crisis many movies have been given delayed release dates. This means the list below is very light and subject to change after it has been posted.
In the Stream:
Amazon Prime: 9/04 The Boys (season 2)
HBOMax: 9/05 Raised By Wolves
Netflix: 9/17 Dragon’s Dogma (season 1)
CBS All Access: 10/15 Star Trek Discovery (season 3)
Hulu: 11/20 All new shows of Animaniacs. Yakko, Wakko and Dot are back!
On the Big Screen:
Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight trilogy, Inception) is keeping the story line for this sci-fi action adventure a secret, but it deals with the concept of inverted time. Why: Have you seen any of Nolan’s movies?
Live-action version of the Disney classic. Young Chinese maiden disguises herself as a warrior to save her father. Why: The animated version was good, this should be equally good but less silly.
02 Wonder Woman 1984
Wonder Woman’s story jumps from 1917 to 1984. Why: The first Wonder Woman was the best of the DC movies so far. Plus, I really like the music in the trailer, hope they keep it in the movie.
23 Death on the Nile
Hercule Poirot must investigate the murder of a young heiress. Why: Based on an excellent Agatha Christie novel of the same name.
23 Snake Eyes
A GI Joe spin-off centered around the character of Snake Eyes. Why: The GI Joe movies may have been cheaply written but they were fun to watch!
06 Black Widow
Set between Civil War and Infinity War, Natasha Romanoff goes looking for her past. Why: Some backstory on an Avenger.
20 No Time to Die
Bond has left the service and retired to Jamaica, his life is now slow and peaceful. Why: Did you really believe my description?

Night Flier’s Pick
If you read my last post, you know I picked Tenet as my NFP. Covid caused this to be pushed back but I still think it is the one to see out of the above choices.
I miss seeing movies in the theaters and I am sure you do too. If you decide to see any of these movies, remember to stay safe and keep well.
