Good Omens isn’t out yet, but this will make the wait hurt less. Amazon’s adaptation of the novel from literary super-team Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett has its first trailer, compliments of New York Comic Con.

The story follows the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the demon Crowley (David Tennant), 6,000-year-old… friends? who have grown accustomed to living on Earth. The approaching apocalypse — the fake one, that is — brings them together in an unlikely bid to save the world.

Bring it on. The combined comedy stylings of Gaiman and Pratchett seem like they go together great on screen in this first look trailer. Good Omens comes to Amazon Prime Video sometime in 2019.

‘About Time’ may not be a holiday movie, but it’s perfect holiday viewing nonetheless

“Each December, we bust out the holiday cheer, from obnoxious Christmas music to Love Actually on a loop. I’m all about this — I usually leave my tree up until my January birthday — but I start with a different movie: About Time.

From Love Actually writer-director Richard Curtis, About Time is comparatively trimmed down, following the life of Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), the young son in a family where the men can travel through time. There are no other sci-fi frills (and probably some plot holes as a result, but who cares!), since as Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) notes, they can’t change anything outside their own lives.

Instead, we watch Tim try to make the most of his existence, not with money or glory but with happiness, plain and pure.

I’ve loved About Time probably since I saw the trailer in 2013. It was the first movie I saw in theaters after moving to New York that fall, with an old friend and diehard movie buff who was seeing it for a second time. We saw it just after Thanksgiving, which gave it a built-in holiday association for me.

As with Curtis’ previous work, what that truly stands out is the writing – specifically the dialogue, which is unique a way that reflects, you know, how people actually talk, but remains memorable in its specificity (“She wasn’t like other mums. There was something solid about her, rectangular”).

Because Tim grew up by the sea in Cornwall, much of the film occupies its own world, and the parts that take place in London are evergreen, unencumbered by technology or pop culture references.

Like Love Actually, About Time has some issues. After a lovely meet cute with Mary (Rachel McAdams), Tim loses her number and has to meet her again for the first time…………………………………………”
