The Apollo Doc
From 1934 to the present day, the new documentary tells the rich history of the legendary Harlem theatre. In between archival performance footage and behind-the-scenes access of those who keep the venue running, artists including Pharrell Williams, Smokey Robinson and Paul McCartney share what The Apollo has meant to them. “When [the Beatles] first came to New York, the Apollo was the first place we wanted to go,” recalls McCartney in the trailer. The doc also goes beyond the theatre’s past and poses the question of what’s to come in the future. November 6th on HBO

After a breakup, it can feel like you’re living in a different world. For Kat Dennings’ Jules, this is no exaggeration. After her long term boyfriend breaks up with her, she’s forced to rediscover friendships she long ago abandoned and things get pretty strange: she is tried in court for being a buzzkill, shops for men in a used car lot and is treated by paramedics after accidentally liking her ex’s new girlfriend’s Instagram post.

Man in the High Castle, Season 4
Juliana Crane (Alexa Davalos) is surrounded by gunmen, tossed out of a moving car and shown badly beaten – all within the first thirty seconds of the trailer. If that’s any indicator, fans of the alternate history drama can expect a gripping final season as the resistance against Nazi rulers grows and inter-dimensional portals loom. The season premieres November 15th on Amazon.
The film’s latest trailer begins in a place of affection: Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson’s characters Charlie and Nicole list what they love about each other. “He’s brave,” “she’s brilliant,” they trade off. This comes to a halt when the couple is shown in court trying to navigate a painful divorce. The emotionally-wrought clips show Charlie and Nicole fighting over custody of their son, searching for what went wrong and finding a path towards goodbye. “It’s not as simple as not being in love anymore,” says Nicole. Nobody should expect simplicity from Noah Baumbach’s latest. Dec. 6th on Netflix.
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Season 3
For the third season, Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) and her manager Susie (Alex Borstein) take their comedy act out on the road, making stops in LA, Chicago and Miami.

The new season premieres on December 6th on Amazon Prime.
The new HBO series shows a chilling contradiction that pulses through the season: an alleged killer appears to have been two places at once. Impossibility set aside, the clip shows Little League coach Terry Maitland (Jason Bateman) on security camera footage miles away from the crime scene at the time of the murder, yet finger print evidence points directly at him. Police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn) attempts to make sense of an inexplicable case. When it comes to Stephen King, fans should already know to expect the unexpected. Jan. 12th on HBO
