The New Jean-Luc Picard Star Trek Series Is Coming to Amazon. Sorta

First up, some good news for Star Trek fans who live outside the US: Amazon has picked up the rights to the upcoming Jean-Luc Picard spinoff series currently in the works. Under an agreement with CBS, new episodes of the series will show up on Prime Video within 24 hours after they air on the CBS All Access streaming service stateside. The still-untitled new series will feature Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role and will also feature The Newsroom‘s Alison Pill and Penny Dreadful‘s Harry Treadaway.

Detective Pikachu Can’t Beat the Avengers

In unsurprising news, Avengers: Endgame is still the biggest thing at the multiplex. This past weekend, it retained its No. 1 spot at the US box office. Detective Pikachu, however, did come somewhat close to toppling its reign. Endgame brought in $61.3 million domestically, compared to Pikachu’s $58 million. Endgame has made $2.485 billion worldwide, so it still has the all-time box office champ—Avatar—in its sights.

Here’s a New Trailer for HBO’s Watchmen

OK, One More: Here’s a Trailer for It Chapter Two

Just in case that Watchmen trailer wasn’t chilling enough, here’s a new trailer of It Chapter Two that’ll likely make your skin crawl. Honestly, the 2017 movie based on Stephen King’s book was pretty frightening, but this one—featuring the Losers’ Club all grown up—looks downright horrifying.
