Handvoll neuer Trailer zu Split von M. Night Shyamalan (der sich bei mir mit The Visit ja ein Stück weit rehabilitiert hat und auch das hier sieht erstmal toll aus), dem Restaurations-Trailer zum 30sten Jubiläum von Sid & Nancy, der Horror-Anthologie The ABCs of Death 2.5, der Indie-Romanze There is a new World somewhere und zur Kunst-Doku zum 500jährigen Geburtstag von Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil.
While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
Baz Luhrmann, who was expecting to play a smaller role on the series, offering his input but standing to the side, wound up being completely involved. The series burned through two showrunners, and oddly enough, when Sony Pictures Television, who are also producers on the show, tried to press Netflix to bring in another, they refused: they wanted Baz Luhrmann’s vision or bust.
The result was a budget that spiraled from $7.5 million per episode to approximately $10 million per episode, with the entire 12 episode first season costing $120 million (that puts the musical drama in “Game Of Thrones” territory). And that’s after tax rebates from shooting in New York City. It makes “The Get Down” one of the most expensive shows in history, and certainly Netflix’s most costly to date.
Sid Vicious, the Sex Pistols bassist who was arrested for the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen, but who died in 1979 from a heroin overdose before the case came to court. Gary Oldman stars in the lead role.

In 2016, the Noordbrabants Museum in the Dutch city of Den Bosch held a special exhibition devoted to the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who died 500 years ago. This late-medieval artist lived his entire life in the city, causing uproar with his fantastical and utterly unique paintings in which hell and the devil always played a prominent role. In preparation for the exhibition, a team of Dutch art historians crisscrosses the globe to unravel the secrets of his art.
They use special infrared cameras to examine the sketches beneath the paint, in the hope of discovering more about the artist's intentions. They also attempt to establish which of the paintings can be attributed with certainty to Bosch himself, and which to his pupils or followers. The experts shuttle between Den Bosch, Madrid and Venice, cutting their way through the art world's tangle of red tape, in a battle against the obstacle of countless egos and conflicting interests. Not every museum is prepared to allow access to their precious art works.
