Wes Anderson’s star-studded ‘Asteroid City’ trailer is exactly what you want it to be

Check out the trailer for Wes Anderson's 'Asteroid City"

Not many directors working in Hollywood today are able to be the headliner of a film. People are often more interested in summer blockbusters and superhero flicks than they are the unique work of a specific filmmaker. Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro are two of the names that separate themselves from the rest when having this discussion. Wes Anderson is another example, and his newest film offers a star-studded trailer for the masses to enjoy.

Asteroid City - Official Trailer - Only In Theaters June 16

Asteroid City is one of the most Wes Anderson-y films from the director to date. Filled with offbeat humor and a signature color scheme and style, the movie is a science fiction romantic comedy. The trailer appears to show a mashup of exotic personalities clumped together in the middle of nowhere as they attempt to learn about the wonders of the solar system during the height of the Cold War and the Space Race. Cool blues, teals, and yellows are the dominant colors used throughout the trailer, and we know that hues are symbolic of many different themes used in film and television.

Who stars in Asteroid City?

When you take a look at the cast list for Asteroid City, prepare for an all-star ensemble of epic proportions. Wes Anderson movies have his typical stable of actors who have appeared in multiple films of his in the past, and rest assured, many of them will also appear in this new movie. These people include Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Bryan Cranston, and Edward Norton. Other big stars who are more novel to Anderson’s films and will appear are Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson, Margot Robbie, and Steve Carell. Sometimes it can be a little distracting with so many big names on the screen at once, but we’re excited to see how everyone pulls it off!

When it became the first major streaming service, Netflix was best known for being host to a wide array of great movies and shows that had been produced by other studios.

In fact, Netflix has produced a number of great movies over the course of its history as a studio and even financed some movies that might not have been made otherwise. This is not to say that everything Netflix has ever made has been great, but when they hit, they really hit.
We’ve handpicked a list of the best movies to stream right now on Netflix that the streamer made itself. You can also check out our list of the best Hulu series, best Amazon Prime series, and best Disney Plus series for more options.

There's something about World War II that keeps bringing Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks back together for event miniseries like Masters of the Air. Nearly eight decades after the conflict came to an end, WWII remains an endless source of material for Hollywood, although there are a lot fewer stories that explore the horrific toll of the war in the way that Spielberg and Hanks' 1998 film, Saving Private Ryan, did. Masters of the Air and other shows like it serve as a reminder that real people fought in this conflict, and they're the ones who paid the price.

Now that Masters of the Air has finished its nine-episode run, we're putting the spotlight on the best shows like it that you can stream right now. Not all of our choices cover World War II, but there are certain aspects of war that remain true in every armed conflict. And those stories can be just as compelling as Masters of the Air.

It turns out that TV worked pretty well under its old model. According to a new report from Business Insider, Apple TV+ may be the latest streaming service that's set to introduce an ad-supported tier and charge those who don't stream with ads a premium fee to access their great shows and movies.

At this point, the report is still speculation, but Apple has made several recent hires in the advertising space that seem to suggest the direction they're planning to take. The company recently hired former NBCUniversal ad executive Joseph Cady to serve as executive vice president of advanced advertising and partnerships, a move that comes following the company's hiring of another former NBCUniversal executive, Jason Frum, who joined Apple's video ad sales team.
