Horror fans rejoice as Joe Bob Briggs is coming back for another round of double features on Shudder very soon. The Last Drive-In season 2 is set to debut in April on the streaming service, as announced by Briggs personally. A brief trailer for the upcoming season has also been released, which sees Briggs brilliantly explaining the show for those who may not be familiar, or for those struggling to tell their friends and family members about it.
Shudder brought back the iconic host for this new show, which kicked off with a marathon in July 2018. It proved to be so successful that it crashed Shudder's servers. Season 1 rolled on rather successfully and, with that, we're getting season 2 starting on Friday, April 24. Taking to Twitter, Joe Bob Briggs shared a brief teaser, in which he, provides an excellent description of the show for his viewers who he lovingly jokes need to find a way to explain it to their parole officers.
Some of you are having trouble explaining to your loved ones, in this time of crisis, why Season 2 of The Last Drive-In is essential for your mental health. Your alternative derangement starts one month from today! @[email protected][email protected]@REBELLERpic.twitter.com/rZIowxrgYQ— Joe Bob Briggs @therealjoebob March 24, 2020 'We show some new movies, some old movies, some classic movies, some cult movies, some weird foreign movies, some obscure movies, pairing them up in double features that sometimes challenge logic and sanity. Then, drill down into the heart of those movies by ferreting out background on the filmmakers, background on the way the movies are produced, and we count the number of dead bodies.'
The Last Drive-In season 2 will consist of ten episodes. The series will offer an eclectic selection of movies running the gamut from horror classics to obscurities and foreign cult favorites. The show will also feature the occasional surprise guest. None of the movies have been announced at this time, as Joe Bob Briggs likes to keep it a surprise each week.
Joe Bob Briggs became known to movie lovers through his days hosting Drive-In Theater. It ran for nearly ten years with Briggs as the host and was one of the highest-rated shows on The Movie Channel. Briggs then moved to TNT for four years as the host of MonsterVision. Briggs was also a commentator on The Daily Show for a little while, but Shudder brought him back to his horror roots for the streaming age.
For those who aren't already subscribed to Shudder, the horror-themed streaming service is offering up a deal right now for a free month. Normally, they only offer a seven-day trial, but given what's going on in the world right now, that has been extended. To get it, all you need to do is head to Shudder.com and use the code SHUTIN. After that, the service costs $5.99 per month. The Last Drive-In will air on Shudder's 'Shudder TV' feed on Fridays at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT beginning on April...
Resplendently armored Chinese army generals sit atop horses in a valley nestled in the middle of a mighty mountainscape, fluttering yellow and red flags surrounding them and dust billowing in from a wind machine. Not that they need one — the natural wind of the New Zealand countryside acting as the Chinese battlefield on the set of the live-action remake of Mulan is strong enough. It’s the kind of wind that blows through your hair until the separate strands cut into your face, and pierces through your coat to settle into your bones.
But Mulan star Liu Yifei is paying no mind to the wind, even as it whips her long hair around her face in such a wild frenzy that her eyes can barely be seen on the monitors. She’s poised, stony-faced, her simple robe the one bright flash of red among the weather-beaten, dirt-covered soldiers who ready themselves to charge against the invading Rouran army, a battlefield strewn with dead horses and soldiers stretching out between them. Yifei is running through the climactic battle scene of Mulan: the zenith of the film in which the mythic Chinese warrior has now revealed her identity to the world.Waiting for Mulan
“Yifei, she is just Mulan,” costume designer Bina Daigeler tells a group of journalists visiting the New Zealand set. Kiwi director Niki Caro has taken the production of Mulan, the upcoming remake of the beloved 1998 animated film, to her homeland, where /Film was among those invited to view the film’s big battle scene between the Chinese imperial army and the invading Rouran army led by Jason Scott Lee’s vengeful warrior Bori Khan and Gong Li‘s mysterious taloned witch Xian Lang. It’s a scene that was a long time coming, as the Mulan production had been delayed and the live-action remake’s release pushed back so that Liu could step into the iconic armor.
“We waited for Yifei,” producer Jason Reed says. “Once we went through that search and we determined that Yifei was the person we wanted and that she had the correct spirit and the correct determination and work ethic…we had to wait. We pushed production 5 months, which was interesting. Also the previous release date, if I’m totally honest that first release date was a placeholder anyways, and it was some ways intended to scare off anyone who wanted to make a Mulan movie.”
There are certainly a lot of reasons to be scared to make a Mulan movie. The 1998 animated film directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook was a beloved hallmark of the Disney Renaissance era and a cherished part of many moviegoers’ childhoods. And while Disney live-action remakes are basically guaranteed box office hits, fatigue has set in for the nostalgic rehashes critically. But there’s more riding on this film than the Disney label. Mulan is a famous...
