Fly Me To The Moon
Brought in to fix NASA's public image, marketing maven Kelly Jones (Scarlett Johansson) wreaks havoc on launch director Cole Davis's (Channing Tatum) already difficult task of putting a man on the moon. When the White House deems the mission too important to fail, Jones is directed to stage a fake moon landing as backup. Jim Rash excels himself as Lance Vespertine, the camp temperamental director who fills in for the role conspiracy theorists allege was played by Stanley Kubrick. And he is just as demanding as Stan, take after take.

A Family Affair
(Netflix)
An unexpected romance triggers comic consequences for a young woman, her mother, and her boss, grappling with the complications of love, sex, and identity. Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman have real chemistry and Joey King is surprisingly convincing as the bratty but loving daughter. Plus Kathy Bates steals the scenes she's in. This film stands out in terms of writing, not too try hard gen-z writing when it comes to the younger characters which I appreciated. Overall funny, clever and cozy, especially if you have a soft spot for any of the actors involved.

Supacell (Netflix)

The series was announced as commissioned by Netflix in November 2021 with Mouktar Mohammed and Henrietta Lee of New Wave as executive producer and associate producer.

Prince Harry is finding himself increasingly isolated, with his “betrayed” former army pals reportedly now snubbing him, as well. “Harry, on the other hand, is increasingly bored and looking back across the Atlantic, where most of his army and school friends still live and whom he never sees because they won’t visit him in the states because they find Meghan difficult,” says The Mirror.

Justin Timberlake is moving ahead with plans to launch a second branch of T-Squared Social with his business partner Tiger Woods after being granted planning permission to convert an old cinema in St. Andrews into a new entertainment venue.
