Analysis: This robbery thriller is the prequel to ‘Army of the Dead’, which has no zombies

In my world, that’s a yes, and it’s scary how much great content there is to start the fun.

Let’s go there.

Pre-story for “Army of the Dead” by Zack Snyder it may not be full of zombies and blood, but that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy this story. The thriller reveals how a bank cashier in a small town, Ludwig Dieter (Matthias Schweighöfer), gets entangled in the adventure of a lifetime when a mysterious woman hires him to join a team of Interpol’s most wanted criminals.

How can trying to rob a set of legendary safes that are impossible to break into across Europe be fun?

“Army of Thieves” starts airing on Netflix on Friday.

‘Colin in black and white’

Long before he was NFL quarterback who lost his job because he knelt in protest of racial injusticeColin Kaepernick was a young man who navigated race, class, and culture as a black adoptee of a white family.
He tells his story in this dramatic limited series, co-created by a renowned director Ava DuVernay.

It comes out on Friday on Netflix.


Kate Siegel plays Jenn Thompson in the film "Hypnotic"

I couldn’t leave you without a trifle to make your heart beat in honor of the holiday.

In “Hypnotic,” a young woman (played by Kate Siegel) tries to deal with her trauma by hiring a renowned hypnotherapist.

Let’s just say that in this psychological thriller, things don’t go exactly according to plan.

It is currently streaming on Netflix.

My best friend, Audrey Irvine of CNN, joins me while I research what is behind our fascination with the criminal mind as it is charismatic serial killer Joe Goldberg in the movie “You”:

Two things to listen to

Ed Sheeran performs on stage during the first Earthshot Awards ceremony at Alexandra Palace in London on October 17th.
Ed Sheeran was in the news recently after he said he had positive for Covid-19.

He also has a new album titled “=”.

It is pronounced “Equals” followed by “No. 6 Collaborations Project” from 2019.

The English singer-songwriter may not be able to promote his latest project the way he originally planned, but we can still enjoy the new music when it comes out on Friday.

Tori Amos performs in Amsterdam with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra on October 8, 2010.

Tori Amos says she was discharged from a difficult mental space during the pandemic.

The result is her new album, her first in four years, titled “Ocean to Ocean”.

The singer told NME she wrote an album to be released ahead of the U.S. presidential election last year.

“Because of the pandemic, I had to plan not one North American tour, but two,” Amos said.

“Then in January came the third prison (in the UK) and it became clear to me that the songs I wrote before the election simply didn’t resonate with me anymore,” she explained. “So I threw them all out and started all over again. The songs I had (before) didn’t have the energy I needed to get rid of discouragement at the time.”

We will witness her recovery when a new album is released on Friday.

One thing to talk aboutt

(From left) Annie Murphy, Dan Levy, Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy star as the Rose family in the film "Schitt's Creek."
If you’re currently trying very hard not to connect with people, don’t pick up a copy Book on the table “Schitt’s Creek”..

According to my CNN colleague Marianne Garvey, it’s as wonderful as the popular comedy series it’s based on. And, frankly, everyone could take advantage of the little good feelings that “Best Wishes, Warmest Greetings: The Story of Schitt’s Creek” brings.

It’s a behind-the-scenes look at a critically acclaimed, award-winning series in which so many fell in love with the Rose family and kept the phrase “Ew, David!” imprinted in our heads.

The show is sorely missed – and because Hollywood loves a revival, I’m voting not to wait a year to bring it back. At least maybe a holiday special?

Something to sip

The late director of photography Halyna Hutchins (right) is shown with her husband Matthew Hutchins (left) and son.

Whenever tragedy happens in Hollywood, there is a tendency to grieve and then move on, much like in real life.

In case of an accident fatal shooting on the set of the movie “Rust”., I hope we will all take a moment to not only remember the life of Halyna Hutchins, but we will also learn valuable lessons from her time here on Earth.

The cinematographer, who died of her injuries on Oct. 21 after Alec Baldwin fired a gun while filming, was previously a journalist in Europe who first moved to New York and then to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams.

She fell in love with the art of film, and this was done by his wife and mother when her life was tragically cut short.
Those who knew her are offered gifts this made it clear that her life was well lived and loved, even though it was all too short.

We should all strive to leave a legacy that we followed our passions and were as deeply admired as Hutchins seems to have been.
