Cannes 2018: Ali Abbasi’s ‘Border’ is a Wacky, Wild Instant Cult Classic

What do you think?
Ali Abbasi's Border

It’s fairly easy to throw around the phrase that a film is an “instant cult classic”, but this time I really mean it. Border, which is the translation of the title Gräns in Swedish, is a new film from filmmaker Ali Abbasi (Shelley) and it just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section. File this one under “what the fuck did I just watch?!?” It’s one of those kind of “WTF” films, but it’s actually damn good. The more I think about it, the more I love it, so quirky and ridiculous and weird and wild and disgusting yet surprisingly amusing and tender. The only problem – I don’t want to give away the big reveal, and it’s hard to talk about this film without discussing that aspect of it. For this early festival review, I’ll be as vague as I can, and I won’t spoil it – because this is best experienced without knowing the big reveal before watching it. ›››

Second Trailer for ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me’ with Kunis & McKinnon

What do you think?
The Spy Who Dumped Me Trailer

“This is insane! Have you ever felt so alive?” Lionsgate has debuted the second official trailer for the buddy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as best friends who get into some spy trouble. The title is a riff on the classic James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (released 1977). The plot involves the two women getting caught up in a deadly spy conspiracy with assassins on their tail, and even though he’s her ex-boyfriend, they’re still going after them. This trailer is a more conventional action movie trailer, and I still prefer the Bond song riff for the first teaser. Justin Theroux co-stars as the titular “spy”, with Gillian Anderson, Ivanna Sakhno, Sam Heughan, and Hasan Minhaj. This does look a little too absurd, and a little too cheesy, maybe it could be entertaining? Let’s hope it’s not a disaster. ›››

Cobra Kai Renewed For Season 2–Here’s What We Know

What do you think?

YouTube Red has delivered a serious leg sweep with its newest original program, Cobra Kai. The series, which follows up on the movie The Karate Kid nearly 35 years later, just debuted on the streaming service and has already been renewed.

In a press release touting the renewal, executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg say, “Continuing the Karate Kid saga with YouTube Red has been a dream come true. We are grateful to all our creative partners for giving us the freedom to revisit and expand the LaRusso/Lawrence rivalry. And we are truly exhilarated by the tidal wave of support from fans of this story, both old and new.”

At this point, a release date for the new season has yet to be announced. However, YouTube Red is spilling quite a few details on what to expect from Cobra Kai when it returns.

When can you expect it?

While a specific date has not been revealed, YouTube Red says the new season will arrive in 2019. Production on the series resumes this fall.

How many episodes will be in Season 2?

As with Season 1, the next batch will include 10 half-hour episodes.

Who is returning?

Naturally, William Zabka, and Ralph Macchio will be back as Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso, respectively. Also signed on to return are Xolo Mariduena (Miguel Diaz), Tanner Buchanan (Robby Keane), Mary Mouser (Samantha LaRusso), and Courtney Henggeler (Amanda LaRusso). There’s no word yet on recurring stars like Nichole Brown (Aisha) and Jacob Bertrand (Hawk), but it’s hard to imagine the new Cobra Kai Dojo without them.

What will it be about?

This is where we’re getting into spoiler territory. If you’ve yet to watch the show, stop reading now. But also, what are you waiting for? As GameSpot’s Cobra Kai review will tell you, this is not a show to be missed.

The first season ended with the new Cobra Kai Dojo having won the All-Valley Karate Tournament after Miguel showed no mercy against Robby in the finals. However, the regret on Johnny’s face was clear after realizing the way he trained his students brought pain and defeat to his own son, Robby.

Clearly, Season 2 will continue to deal with the incredibly strained relationship between Johnny and Robby, as the former also likely reevaluates the lessons he learned from his days as a Cobra Kai student. However, complicating matters was the return of Johnny’s sensei John Kreese (Martin Cove) in the season’s final moments.

Johnny previously claimed his sensei was dead. However, he’s very much alive and seems pleased with the dojo’s rise to greatness once again. Could Season 2 lead to a showdown between the student and his teacher? That’s a question that won’t be answered until 2019.
