David Letterman is retiring from retirement.

The former late-night host is returning to TV with a new talk show called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, debuting January 12 on Netflix.

With a title like that, Letterman will need to bring on some truly top-notch guests – and he delivers. The lineup includes Barack Obama, George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Tina Fey, Howard Stern, and Jay-Z.

Each episode will center around one particular person, and consist of in-depth interviews as well as field segments.

Unlike most Netflix shows, My Next Guest won’t drop all at once. Only the first episode, which focuses on Obama, will arrive this month.

Subsequent episodes will be released once a month from February through June, adding up to a total of six 60-minute episodes.

“Get ready, Jungle Book fans: the latest adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s book is well on its way, and judging by the trailer it’s going to be a real feast for the eyeballs.

The 200-second feature above introduces us to Mowgli (Rohan Chand) and a cast of (very famous) talking animals, including a Christian Bale-voiced Bagheera and Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Khan.

The visuals looks genuinely impressive, and Shere Khan looks even more unnerving than he did in the Disney adaptation.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle will be available on Netflix and in select in some theatres on Dec. 7th.”

“Netflix has famously resisted traditional film distribution, where films hit the silver screen first.

It’s something that’s bothered the film establishment, most notably when Cannes Film Festival told the streaming giant in 2017 it would need to show in French cinemas if it wanted to be considered for future festivals.

Netflix fired back by pulling out of Cannes this year. But now, it’s releasing three of its films in select cinemas for a short run before people can watch them on the service. Why? Awards.

Oscar contender Roma, by Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón, will show in cinemas for around three weeks from Nov. 21, reports Variety.

Two other films with awards potential will have a one-week exclusive run: The Coen Brothers’ The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, which stars Liam Neeson and Zoe Kazan, will be in cinemas from Nov. 8, and Susanne Bier’s Bird Box, featuring Sandra Bullock, drops on the silver screen on Dec. 13.

“There’s been an overwhelming response to all of our films this festival season, including Outlaw King, which will be in theaters and on Netflix next week, and this plan is building on that momentum,” Netflix film chief Scott Stuber told the publisher………………………………….”
