The Showtime series “Your Honor” starring Bryan Cranston returns for its second and final season this week, and “Hellbound” director Yeon Sang-Ho unveils his new sci-fi action pic, the dystopian “Jung_E,” where Earth has become uninhabitable and war is about to break out. The 10-episode Netflix series “That 90′s Show” imagines what happened to characters Eric, Donna, Kelso, Fez and Jackie decades on from their young adulthoods in the ‘70s.
Eric and Donna Foreman of “That 70s Show,” (along with Kelso, Fez and Jackie) are all grown up now with a teen daughter, Leia. In the spin-off “That 90′s Show,” Leia decides to stay with her grandparents (played by Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp) in Point Place, Wisconsin for the summer. She makes a new group of friends, and they all hang out in the basement, just as Eric and his friends did. Most of the original cast reprise their roles on a recurring status with Smith and Rupp back full-time.) The 10-episode series debuts Thursday on Netflix. DETAILS
“Train to Busan” and “Hellbound” director Yeon Sang-Ho has a new sci-fi action pic arriving on Netflix on Friday. In the dystopian future of “Jung_E,” Earth has become uninhabitable, and war is about to break out in the shelter, where one side figures out how to clone a famous mercenary into a A.I. robot army. The film stars Kang Soo-yeon, in her last role, Kim Hyun-joo (as Jung-E), Ryu Kyung-soo and Park So-yi. DETAILS
“Your Honor” starring Bryan Cranston, returns for its second and final season on Showtime on Sunday. Cranston plays Michael, a prominent judge in New Orleans whose teen son Adam accidentally kills another teenage boy in a hit-and-run. The dead teen ends up being the son of a powerful mob boss. Michael takes his son to the police station to turn himself in but realizes who the victim’s family is, so he helps Adam cover it up. Season two picks up where season one left off. DETAILS
“The Price of Glee” is a three-part, gossipy docuseries about the former hit Fox musical series “Glee” created by Ryan Murphy and starring a cast including Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Darren Criss. The series, debuting this week on ID, charts “Glee’s” instant success and popularity and alleged drama and turmoil behind the scenes. It also details the tragic death of Cory Monteith during the show from a heroin overdose, Mark Salling, who died of an apparent suicide after pleading guilty to possessing child pornography, and Naya Rivera, who died in 2020 in an accidental drowning. DETAILS
Audrey Diwan’s “Happening” got a bit lost in the shuffle after winning the top prize at the Venice Film Festival in 2021 after it wasn’t chosen to represent France in the Academy Awards (the country’s choice, “Titane,” did not get nominated). But her riveting adaptation of Annie Ernaux’s true story of an unwanted pregnancy in the 1960s, when abortion was illegal in France, only got more relevant, with the overturning of Roe v. Wade and Ernaux’s subsequent Nobel Prize honor. The film, a harrowing but essential watch, arrives on Hulu on Sunday. In his review, AP Film Writer Jake Coyle wrote, “It’s a movie about abortion, yes, but it’s also a coming-of-age tale about a woman’s resolve.” DETAILS
