The Trailer For Upcoming Netflix Series ‘Everything Sucks!’ Is Here

Netflix has revealed the new trailer for their upcoming series Everything Sucks!, which arrives on the streamer next week.

The 90s high school experience: Desperate, heartfelt, awkward, exciting, and free of smartphones. Set in the real life town of Boring, Oregon in 1996, Everything Sucks! is a quirky, funny coming of age story that revolves around Boring High School’s A/V Club and Drama Club— two crews of nerdy-edgy outsiders, who join forces to make a movie and endure the purgatory known as high school. The series stars Peyton Kennedy (American Fable, The Captive) and Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (Sully, Boardwalk Empire) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) as their respective parents. The 10-episode, half-hour dramedy is created by Ben York Jones (Like Crazy, Newness) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date, Pink Grapefruit), who will both serve as executive producers.

Industry execs debate Netflix pros and cons at Rotterdam's Reality Check conference

Panelists disagree on the possibilities offrered by deals with streaming giants.

Source: Iffr

Reality Check day one.

The European film market is an increasingly challenging environment due to a surplus of content, but is the disruption caused by deep-pocketed SVoD companies such as Netflix and Amazon helping or hindering the industry?

That question regularly entered discussion during the first day of Reality Check, International Film Festival Rotterdam’s new conference exploring the transforming landscape of film distribution.

It’s not news that a surplus of film content is flooding the European market, but the industry continues to be challenged by the sheer number of releases. In France, up to 700 films were released in cinemas in 2017. The number in the UK was close to 900.

“The problem is the volume of films that are being programmed. Does every film belong in the cinema?” asked Bobby Allen, senior vice president of content at arthouse steaming service Mubi, who was hosting

‘Everything Sucks!’ Trailer: Nostalgic Netflix Comedy Relives Your ’90s High School Experience
Last year, chenille sweaters were a holiday party staple and Jenny Slate made frizzy hair cool again in “Landline.” With Netflix’s latest comedy driving a Volvo station wagon back to 1996, it appears ’90s nostalgia is far from reaching a saturation point. The first trailer for “Everything Sucks!” promises plenty of VHS tapes, flannel, and CD-skipping jokes, plus a crew of scheming pre-teens who are just trying to deal. Looking like a cross between “Stranger Things” and “Big Mouth,” “Everything Sucks!” could be the latest Netflix comedy to go make waves.

Navigating This Life Together: November’s VOD and Web Series Picks

Like Crazy

Friendships between women often don’t receive the attention they deserve in the narratives we consume. So the women behind this month’s VOD and web series picks have taken things into their own hands: they’ve directed, written, and created stories focusing on characters just trying to make it through life — with their best friends in tow, of course.

Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Micaela Ramazzoti star in “Like Crazy,” our VOD pick. Co-written by Francesca Archibugi, this film tells the story of two eccentric women who break out of a mental institution in search of something more. “Quarter Life*,” a web series written by Celia Quillian and Shelli Delgado, follows a pair of women that form a powerful bond when they’re partnered up for a post-college internship.

Adulting,” a web series written by Cassidy Davis, continues the motif of women facing the world together, as it shows two friends moving to the big city in an attempt to adult and begin new careers. Creators Brynn Peebles and Brianna Wiens round things off with “Girls vs. The City.” Like all the stories mentioned above, the web series’ main characters are at each other’s side as they navigate life, love, and everything else.

Here are Women and Hollywood’s VOD and web series selections for November.

VOD

Like Crazy” — Co-Written by Francesca Archibugi

Like Crazy

Like Crazy,” co-written by Francesca Archibugi, tells the story of an unpredictable friendship that forms between two women in a progressive but secure psychiatric clinic. Beatrice (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), a “self-styled billionaire countess who likes to believe she’s on intimate terms with world leaders,” bonds with Donatella (Micaela Ramazotti), a “tattooed introvert [and] fragile young woman locked in her own mystery.”

This film takes us on an unexpected journey where we see the world as the protagonists see it: an “open-air nuthouse.” And it’s only together that they discover what happiness means and what they’re willing to do to obtain it in a culture that has stigmatized them.

Stream “Like Crazy” on Netflix or rent or buy it on Vimeo.

Web Series

“Quarter Life*” — Written by Celia Quillian and Shelli Delgado

“Quarter Life*”

Celia Quillian and Shelli Delgado write and star in “Quarter Life*,” which follows two young women leaving college behind and stepping out into the real world. When they’re promoted from interns to video content producers, the characters Celia and Shelli become friends who face everyday challenges, “including odd coworkers, roommates and rent, staying fit, and dating, on and offline,” together.

Right away, it’s easy to connect to these two. In the first two minutes of the first episode you’re able to recognize yourself in Celia and Shelli: like the rest of us, they ignore their alarm over and over until they’re in a mad dash to get ready for work, multitask the hell out of their mornings, and dither over their appearance.

You can watch the entire first season of “Quarter Life” on YouTube.

Adulting” — Written by Cassidy Davis

Adulting

Katie (writer Cassidy Davis) and Charlie (Mallory Fuccella) are trying to follow their dreams in “Adulting.” Moving to the big city, they’re ready to attempt to be adults — the keyword being “attempt.” They struggle with relatable things like finding an apartment, parking, and dealing with people who are ready to write them off. As we watch them it’s easy to relate with their day to day adult woes.

What makes “Adulting” unique and hilarious is the way that the filming pulls you into Katie and Charlie’s story and makes you notice things that are seemingly ordinary, but at second glance are actually weird and unforgettable. The laid back landlord who won’t stop chewing gum, for example, or the creeper that somehow pops up everywhere with a flower on hand.

Check out new episodes of “Adulting” every Wednesday on YouTube.

“Girls vs. The City” — Created by Brynn Peebles and Brianna Wiens

“Girls vs. The City”

“Girls vs. The City” stars and is created by Brynn Peebles and Brianna Wiens. The web series follows characters Brynn and Brianna, who exist in an in-between stage: they’re not really young, but they’re by no means adults, either. They grapple with work and life, and attempt to fit in with the strange characters in their city.

Despite everything that comes their way — turtle neck dress-wearing millennials planning their proposals with tea cup pigs, and hot creeps that hand out fliers advising people to follow their “pleasure path”— Brynn and Brianna keep pushing forward and inciting laughter.

You can watch the entire first season “Girls vs. The City” on YouTube.

Navigating This Life Together: November’s VOD and Web Series Picks was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

First Trailer for Drake Doremus' Piercing Relationship Drama 'Newness'

"Maybe love is not enough." Apple has debuted the official trailer for Drake Doremus' new film Newness, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This indie, relationship drama is a piercing criticism of the current dating world based on apps and the freedom to hook up with whoever, whenever, without really caring deeply about love. Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa star as two people who quickly fall for each other in Los Angeles, but deal with troubles in their relationship down the line. The cast includes Danny Huston, Pom Klementieff, and Matthew Gray Gubler. I saw this at Sundance and it's good, very raw and emotional and brutally honest, but just not as good as Like Crazy. Worth a look anyway. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Drake Doremus' Newness, direct from YouTube: In contemporary L.A., two unacquainted millennials, spend their weekends
