This Month’s Highlights

GLOW, Season 3

If you’re itching for more GLOW, don’t worry. New episodes of Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch’s series are just around the corner. As Netflix’s only trailer (so far!) for the show’s third season vividly teases, we’ll get to watch Alison Brie, Marc Maron, Betty Gilpin, and the rest of the gang as they make their Las Vegas debut. That’s all thanks in part to special guest star Geena Davis, who plays Sandy Devereaux St. Clair, a “former showgirl turned entertainment director of the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino,” where the upcoming season is set. “This season feels unlike anything we’ve shot before, and we really embrace all the things that are Vegas, you know? Kind of the danger, the excitement, the sex, the raciness,” Brie told Entertainment Weekly. “I think there’s a lot of debauchery in season three.” Witness the debauchery for yourself. Available August 9.

Jupiter Ascending

Look, I’m not saying Jupiter Ascending is a good movie. I’m saying it’s a GREAT movie! The 2015 space opera is, yes, a little out there and often unintentionally hilarious, but what more can you expect from a movie by the Wachowski siblings starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and an eyeliner-sporting Eddie Redmayne in one of the most over-the-top performances ever committed to film? Watch it to see him whisper-scream like a truly villainous maniac! I don’t remember much about the plot, except for this part: Halfway through, Mila Kunis’s Jupiter tells someone, “Call me Jupe.” Everyone before that point has been calling her Jupiter, and everyone after that point continues to call her Jupiter; this whole “Jupe” business is never brought up again. Amazing.
