New to Streaming: ‘Dawson City: Frozen Time,’ ‘Marjorie Prime,’ ‘Lady Macbeth,’ ‘Landline,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Abundant Acreage Available (Angus MacLachlan)

Faith-based cinema is as diverse a genre as there is, from the extreme, often violent portraits of devotion from established directors like Martin Scorsese and Mel Gibson, to the attacks on logic in the God’s Not Dead and Left Behind pictures. Angus MacLachlan, a great storyteller of the not-too-deep south, offers a nuanced example of what this genre can bring, returning with the moving Abundant Acreage Available.

Fantastic Fest 2017 Interview: Talking Super Dark Times with Director Kevin Phillips and Co-Stars Charlie Tahan and Owen Campbell

  • DailyDead
One of my favorite films out of Fantastic Fest 2017 was Kevin Phillips' Super Dark Times (read our review here), a haunting gut-punch thriller about two friends (Owen Campbell, Charlie Tahan) who must wrestle with their own inner demons after a tragic accident causes a rift in their long-standing friendship and begins to take its toll on their respective psyches. While in Austin, Daily Dead was excited to speak with Phillips, Tahan, and Campbell about their experiences collaborating together on the project, tapping into their characters, and how their experiences on set were anything but Super Dark Times.

Written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, Super Dark Times is currently playing in select theaters and will be available on VOD today, courtesy of The Orchard.

This film is something else, guys. We've seen coming-of-age stories before, but not like this. From your perspective as the director, Kevin, what did you

‘Super Dark Times’: Watch the Unnerving Opening Sequence From Kevin Phillips’ Teen-Centric Psychological Thriller

‘Super Dark Times’: Watch the Unnerving Opening Sequence From Kevin Phillips’ Teen-Centric Psychological Thriller
That title? It’s not kidding. In Kevin Phillips’ “Super Dark Times,” darkness settles over a small Hudson Valley town after a horrific accident forever alters the lives of a group of seemingly normal teens, including stars Owen Campbell and Charlie Tahan. A cross between “Stand By Me” and “Donnie Darko,” with plenty of “Stranger Things” evocations for good measure, it’s the kind of film that lovingly recreates the final wonders of childhood while hitting back with some horrific adult truths. High school, what a thing.

Per the film’s official synopsis, “Zach (Campbell) and Josh (Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, navigating first love and vying for popularity. When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes as their lives spiral into violence.

Gotham Sneak Peek: Barbara Is Alive — But Will Tabitha Kill Her Again?
The “fatally” electrocuted Barbara Kean (played by Erin Richards) returns very much alive this week on Fox’s Gotham, and we’ve got a sneak peek at the chilly reception she gets from ex-partner Tabitha.

Fantastic Fest 2017 Review: Super Dark Times Delivers a Chilling Portrait of Adolescent Angst

  • DailyDead
“If anyone asks, we’re already f**cked.” Being a teenager is like the best thing ever and the worst thing ever all rolled into one. It’s that phase in your life where adulthood feels almost within reach, and yet, most of us lack the ability to fully grasp and comprehend “grown-up” scenarios when we find ourselves caught in the middle of them. It’s something this writer experienced many times as a teen (who thought she knew everything, and quickly realized she knew nothing), and a notion that first-time feature filmmaker Kevin Phillips deftly explores in his meticulously crafted coming-of-age psychological thriller, Super Dark Times, which repeatedly kicked me right in the gut in the best possible way.

Super Dark Times writers Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski do a brilliant job of tapping into the confusion, anger, and simple joys of being teenagers (and in this case, being

What’s Up in ‘Gotham’?: A Look at Season 4

Fox’s Gotham has hit their fourth season and is looking like what could be the most talked about season yet. And this could be for a number of reasons both good and bad. From the marketing to the story arc, there is already so much to be talked about and it’s only one episode in. Let’s get started shall we? Oh! And this will obviously contain spoilers.

When talking about the marketing for the current season, it’s pretty interesting. Since the early development of the series the first question among Bat-fans was “How are you going to have a Batman series without Batman?” Well now it’s almost looking like the bat may show up…kind of. At the end of season three, we get a tiny glimpse of what will come and we see Bruce (David Mazouz) taking matters into his own hands as he

The Scarecrow Attacks In Images From Next Week’s Episode Of Gotham

After turning in an impressive season premiere last night, the cast and crew of Gotham look to keep the ball rolling with next week’s episode, “A Dark Knight: The Fear Reaper.” From that foreboding title, you can probably surmise that the Scarecrow will play a huge role, no doubt confounding Jim Gordon and the rest of the Gcpd at every turn.

Had you tuned in last night, then you’d have seen Charlie Tahan return as a young Jonathan Crane, effectively reprising his role from season 1. For the wealth of the episode, he was a broken, scared child. But, near the end, he emerged as possibly the most comic book accurate version of Scarecrow we’ve seen in live action to date. Well, at least when it comes to appearance. Needless to say, his debut has thus far been met with much positive fan reaction online.

Gotham Season 4 Review

This review is based on the season premiere.

From the start, a common complaint about Gotham has been that it’s “a Batman show without Batman.” And even as a supporter of the series, I have to admit that position is warranted. But now, we’ve made a huge leap forward, putting it in similar territory to Smallville seasons 8-10 – which I referred to as “the proto-Superman years” – because, like it or not, we’ve now entered the proto-Batman era, baby.

With that, I’m not going to waste time addressing the elephant in the room: The fact that Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is already putting on a mask and dispensing vigilante justice three years after his parents were gunned down. I firmly believe the producers have decided to allow him to split some wigs because not only are the amount of stories you can tell involving young Bruce extremely limited,

Gotham Season 4 Premiere Recap: Amateur Knight

Gotham Season 4 Premiere Recap: Amateur Knight
With a Dark Knight rising, the birth of a fearsome foe and a cool twist on Penguin’s criminal empire, Fox’s Gotham appears to be bat on track after a patience-testing, Tetch-and-go season.

It is early, of course, but Season 4 portends to be a bit more focused, with the premiere zeroing in on Penguin’s new “license to (anything but) kill” initiative, which has taken a serious bite out of crime by regulating it — and thus earned the backroom endorsement of both the mayor and police chief. Gordon of course isn’t at first aware of, and even upon

Gotham Season 4 Photos Reveal New Characters

Gotham returns to Fox for its fourth season tomorrow night and from what we’ve heard, this new run is set to be the most thrilling yet, as it’ll push its ensemble cast of heroes and villains ever closer to where we know they must end up, as per the Batman comics universe. For instance, Bruce Wayne is set to step up and begin operating as a masked vigilante for the first time – albeit sans bat-ears.

Speaking of Gotham‘s eclectic ensemble, a new photo of the cast has dropped online today and it gives us another look at two fresh additions to the show’s line-up. Namely, Crystal Reed’s Sofia Falcone and Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Al-Ghul. If you recall, the latter actually appeared during the tail-end of season 3 but has been bumped up to a regular this time around.

Two Clips From Gotham Season 4 Premiere Hit The Web

Now that the season premiere of Gotham is so close we can taste it, Fox is rolling out generous teasers by the day. Just yesterday, we were treated to an oversized trailer for the show’s fourth year and, now, a couple sneak peeks have found their way online to whet our appetites.

In the first clip, the camera is focused squarely on a “License of Misconduct” card, something we’ll discuss further in a moment. But mainly, this particular video centers on Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth, the former of whom is obviously taking his first major strides toward becoming Batman.

From what we can gather, this scene takes place not long after Bruce puts on a mask for the first time, seemingly preparing for the inevitable return of Ra’s al Ghul. But to Alfred’s chagrin, the burgeoning vigilante has designs on multitasking, also willing to focus

Synopses For Gotham Season 4’s First Two Episodes Surface

If there’s one advantage that Gotham has over its DC TV brethren at The CW, it’s that it’ll commence its next season several weeks before the others do. Having said that, it’s only expected that synopses surface, each providing even more clues as to what we can expect from the next leg of Bruce Wayne’s journey toward becoming Batman.

First, on Thursday, September 21, we have the season 4 premiere that’s peculiarly titled “Pax Penguina.” From that, we can obviously infer that the deadly rivalry involving the Penguin and the Riddler that began in season 3 will spill over here, but it appears that the Scarecrow and Ra’s al Ghul may steal the show. And seeing as how Alexander Siddig, who is reprising his role as the Demon’s Head, is now a series regular, that’s a very real possibility.
