Thanks for joining me for a new week of YA Onscreen. Here’s a look at what’s cookin' this week:
All roles have now been cast for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. Check out the names.
One of the first reviews of Ready Player One from SXSW.
Netflix’s newest food competition show has this peculiar premise: Amateur bakers try to recreate fancy cakes/desserts. It goes about as well as you may think, though from the preview is seemed kind of…fun? It’s certainly colorful. The meme-inspired name? Nailed It.
Imagine, marketing a YA movie about a gay teen like…any other YA movie. /s
The cast of Timeless take you through those whirlwind couple of days when they were cancelled and then uncancelled last year.
Supernatural gets Scoobified at the end of March:
I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about this two-parter iZombie episode where Liv is on rom-com brain.
With all the pushing of Jason Katims’ new gritty drama club show, Rise, they better not be bluffing that it’s 2018’s answer to FNL—because I’m going to be real mad if I’ve been led astray.
On the fence? Here’s one reviewer’s take on Rise before it premieres tonight.
In “Are you kidding me, this is actually real?” news, Scientology is debuting their own TV channel. Yikes.
Director Ava DuVernay discusses an important aspect of A Wrinkle in Time: Meg’s hair journey.
Speaking of, if you’ve already seen the movie, head on over to last Friday’s Open Thread and share your thoughts!
Kristen Wiig will be joining the Wonder Woman 2 team as villain Cheetah. Is it difficult for anyone else to see Kristen Wiig in dramatic roles? I’m wary but intrigued.
So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!! @GalGadot pic.twitter.com/Gn0jICiIAH— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) March 9, 2018
