Too early? Streaming ColumnistNICK OVERALL questions the wisdom of a new drama about Boris Johnson’s time at number 10.
BORIS Johnson will get the TV treatment in a new drama series depicting how the explosive British Prime Minister fumbled through the covid pandemic.
Turning the clock back to 2020, this England sees Oscar winner Kenneth Branagh step into Bojo’s shoes as he is first elected to the top job and this annoying virus begins to spread across the world .
The five-episode series is being marketed as a behind-closed-doors look that will chronicle Johnson himself catching the virus, the birth of his son and the mounting criticism that led to his resignation in July.
The show drops to Binge starting September 22, just weeks after the curators announced that Liz Truss would replace her.
It’s the latest in a series of modern political figures presented on screen as a draw card for viewers.
Benedict Cumberbatch played one of Johnson’s senior advisers, Dominic Cummings, in the Brexit film (about Stan), which hit screens in 2019 and portrayed the country’s separation from the EU as a tragedy. comedy.
Cummings also gets a spot on this new series (played by Simon Paisley Day) as does Johnson’s wife, Carrie (Ophelia Lovibond).
It is indeed a bold thing to play the role of one of these controversial figures in the current political climate.
Donald Trump got the treatment in 2020 drama series The Comey Rule (Stan), where Irish star Brendan Gleeson donned the infamous toupe to eerily precise effect.
Too early? You could argue that a few more years need to pass before the entertainment industry has a chance to tackle these still-raw political sagas with any level of objectivity.
Still, whether you like Boris or not, there’s no denying he’s always been good television. Branaghs has some big shoes to fill.
OVER on Disney Plus this month, the billionaire mouse continues to turn his most iconic animated films into live-action remakes.
The Lion King, Dumbo, Mulan and Aladdin have all gotten a modern makeover and this time it’s Pinocchio, the classic tale of the wooden puppet and his adventures of becoming a real boy.
Tom Hanks plays its creator, Geppetto in this latest version of the story which has been in production for over seven years and sees Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis in charge of the film.
The original Pinocchio is also available on Disney Plus and remains a charming family film even 82 years after it first premiered worldwide.
REMEMBER the guy who got kicked by Ralph Macchio at the end of the first Karate Kid movie?
Who would have thought that 40 years later he would have his own TV show which is still popular for five seasons.
Cobra Kai, the spin-off of the beloved Karate Kid films, has just released its new series of episodes on Netflix and, once again, has proven itself to be a black belt in action television.
This is the story of what happened to The Karate Kid’s teenage antagonist, Johnny Lawrence, 34 years after his defeat at the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament.
All stranded, Lawrence seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai dojo and reigniting his rivalry with the now highly successful Daniel LaRusso.
After an explosive season four finale, this new entry in the Miyagi verse will see Lawrence take on Karate Kid Part III villain Terry Silver, who wants to make his “No Mercy” style of karate the only game in town.
For anyone in need of a memory refresh, unfortunately there won’t be much of a chance of finding the original movies on any of the streaming platforms.
Netflix has the 2010 remake starring Jaden Smith, but let’s just say it’s an iteration of the Karate Kid that lands no punches.
