Netflix schedule: Here’s what is coming and leaving in September 2019

Netflix has confirmed that 40 new original series, movies and specials will be debuting on the streaming service in September. Leading off lineup is the first season of “The Politician” from the Emmy-winning Ryan Murphy. This drama about an ambitious politico stars Tony champ Ben Platt and Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow. Among the other freshman series one of the most intriguing is “Criminals,” an anthology set in four police stations in the UK, France, Germany and Spain.

Two limited series tell true-life stories. “Unbelievable” chronicles the efforts of two detectives to discover the truth about an alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl. And “Spy” showcases Sacha Baron Cohen as Israeli Mossad agent Eli Cohen, who went undercover in 1960s Syria. Among the new films on offer is Zach Galifianakis’ satire “Between Two Ferns: The Movie.”

Memorial Day Movie Viewing Guide: Wrap Staff Our Picks Favorite Military Movies (Photos)

As Americans prepare to take a well-deserved day off from work to remember the servicemen and women who have sacrificed their lives for this country during times of war, TheWrap remembered their favorite movies tackling the tough topic.

Some are fun, some are sad, but all are classics that are worth watching this Memorial Day weekend if readers haven’t already. From waging war with aliens to women raging against the military for justice, here are our favorite war stories of all time:

“Independence Day”

While many people pan “ID4” as a cheesy, big-budget Will Smith vehicle, I consider it one of my personal favorite feel-good, proud-to-be-an-American films. I always tear up when Randy Quaid sacrifices his life so his kids can live free from extraterrestrial tyranny. Bill Pullman’s patriotic speech should also be required viewing for High School civics classes.

Danny DeVito Offers Twins 2 Update, Says Triplets Still Needs a Script

Danny DeVito Offers Twins 2 Update, Says Triplets Still Needs a Script
One of the most inventive comedies of all time is director Ivan Reitman's 1988 buddy adventure Twins starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as - you guessed it - twins separated at birth. The movie is one of the great examples of a killer high-concept idea, and a sequel seemed like a given. But it never happened. That said, is there still a chance another film may come to fruition? Well, while out and about promoting Tim Burton's recent live-action remake of the Disney classic Dumbo co-star Danny DeVito talked a bit about the rumors circling a possible sequel Triplets co-starring Eddie Murphy.

Danny DeVito says this.

"Everybody would be up for it. The main thing is you have to have a screenplay. We're looking. We're figuring it out."

So what could the film be? There have been rumors flying back and forth for years now that a potential

John Candy: Watch This Tribute to the Actor 25 Years After His Passing
It’s hard to overstate how big an impact John Candy had on the world of comedy during his time as one of the genre’s biggest movie stars. The actor tragically died at the age of 43 in 1994 after a fatal heart attack, but not before leaving behind an impressive body of work that helped shape some of the most enduring comedies of the 1980s and ’90s.

Monday marks the 25th anniversary of his passing, and as a tribute to Candy’s achievements, fellow Canadian Ryan Reynolds shared a collection of some of the actor’s most memorable roles. The video runs through his work on films like the 1987 John Hughes classic “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,” in which he co-starred alongside Steve Martin.

Bill Murray Stories Documentary: Understanding Murray's Motives

Joseph Baxter Jan 18, 2019

The new documentary The Bill Murray Stories, showcasing real-life sightings of the eccentric comedy legend, is on Netflix now.

When thinking of the legend of Bill Murray, films like Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, and Lost in Translation come to mind.

The Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man, the 2018 documentary which was recently released on Netflix, tells a different story. The film evokes an approachable-but-eccentric celebrity who tends to pop up in the weirdest, most random places. Filmmaker Tommy Avallone directed and wrote this poetic paean to the extracurricular activities of Murray; a tale strung together with sporadic accounts from ordinary folks across the country showing the most wonderfully random run-ins with the entertainment icon. Whether it’s joining someone’s ball game at the park, photobombing wedding shots, crashing parties, to just showing up at a doorstep, Murray’s curiously arbitrary thrill-seeking exploits have become the stuff of legend,

12 Things We Learned From Michael Ovitz’s New Book
Michael Ovitz still has nothing good to say about Michael Eisner. He and Ron Meyer started to patch things up over dinner a few years ago at Hamasaku, the sushi restaurant that Ovitz owns in West Los Angeles. And the famous threat Ovitz delivered to Joe Eszterhas about having “foot soldiers” marching up and down Wilshire Boulevard? Totally exaggerated in Eszterhas’ retelling via the press.

Those are among the anecdotes and tidbits shared by Ovitz in his new book “Who Is Michael Ovitz?,” due out Tuesday from Random House’s Portfolio imprint. The book isn’t so much a tell-all as it is a take-credit-for-(nearly)-all that went down during Ovitz’s 20-year run as the monarch of CAA.

The 384-page tome offers exhausting detail on how CAA reshaped the movie business in the 1980s and ’90s with its approach to packaging, and how Ovitz engineered the dealmaking behind

'I’m nothing but compost’: Bill Murray on good friends, bad bosses and Harvey Weinstein

The actor talks about loneliness, big families, his temperamental reputation – and why he loves to live in the moment

The last time I met Bill Murray things got rather physical rather quickly. It was the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars party and I was about to leave, bloated with celebrity sightings and starting to suffer from indigestion. But as I walked out I saw a man arrive who made me turn around and go right back in.

By now, Bill Murray has long bypassed mere celebrity status to become something close to a spiritual symbol, a guru of zen, and his frequent appearances among the masses (in a karaoke bar! In a couple’s engagement photo!) are reported on the internet with the excitement of sightings of the messiah. Ever since his pitch perfect performances in 90s classics Groundhog Day and Rushmore, he has enjoyed a career renaissance, shucking off his well-hewn

‘The Front Runner’: Jason Reitman and Hugh Jackman’s Political Dark Comedy Lands at Sony

‘The Front Runner’: Jason Reitman and Hugh Jackman’s Political Dark Comedy Lands at Sony
Just days after Jason Reitman released “Tully” to disappointing box-office results, his eighth film has found a distributor. Sony Pictures will rollout his big-screen telling of former Colorado Senator Gary Hart’s doomed political career. Aussie Hugh Jackman is set to star in the namesake role, a candidate for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination who was forced to suspend his campaign after his affair with campaign aide Donna Rice surfaced.

“Having grown up wandering around the Columbia lot as a kid, it is a particular thrill to bring ‘The Front Runner’ back home to the first studio I can remember,” said Reitman, whose father, Ivan Reitman, directed “Ghostbusters” and “Stripes” for Columbia before it was acquired by Sony in 1989. “I cannot wait for movie goers to see Hugh’s humanist transformation into one of the more complicated political figures of our time.”

Both of Jackman’s 2017 films yielded surprising, beyond-the-norm successes:
