Why Are Identical Movies Released At The Same Time?

Life threw us for a fast one last week when Netflix and Hulu decided to release FYRE and Fyre Festival respectively. My social media was filled with people asking which they should watch. It’s interesting because while the two documentaries are on a similar subject, they are quite different. And while it seems coincidental or rather competitive for these two documentaries to be released within two days of each other, it’s not the first time this has happened.

Cheddar dives into the many times that this has happened before!

Greta – Movie Trailer

This trailer got dark fast. 

– Stars: Isabelle Huppert, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Maika Monroe
– Synopsis: Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) returns a handbag she finds on the subway to Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher. Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to widowed Greta. The two become fast friends — but Greta’s maternal charms begin to dissolve and grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta’s life is what it seems.
– Comes out in March.

“To All The Boys” Gets A Sequel

There has been rumblings for awhile now that we’d get a sequel, but it feels much more official when it’s coming from Netflix. First off, we love Lana’s haircut. We love the relationship she has with Noah even though he’s still kind of a weirdo on Instagram. By the looks of it, it seems like they’ve recast John Ambrose. We can’t wait to see who they have chosen and how much of a role he’ll play in the sequel. 

Any of you still watching this film once a week like me?

Ariana Grande – “thank u, next” Music Video

The highly anticipated music video for “thank u, next” is officially out! I was a little behind and not sure when to expect it until I heard it was noon pt today. Just a little bit after my lunch break, I took a few minutes to watch. The music video pays homage to four of my favorite early 2000 films: “Bring it On (2000),” “Legally Blonde (2001),” “Mean Girls (2004),” and “13 Going on 30 (2004).” There are even more than a handful of guest cameos in the music video as well including one member of the “Kardashian” klan.

“thank u, next” has been a hit since it debuted and the music video is likely one that will be talked about all weekend long. I had watched the behind the scenes special yesterday evening before the release and almost wish I hadn’t because I had found it to be a bit anti-climatic. That being said, the song is still my favorite and will absolutely be on my list at the end of the year for being a top 50 song. Which Ariana character best resonates with you?
