‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Premieres Season 3 Teaser, Announces Premiere Date
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt kicked off its season three run up with a new teaser today, which gives Queen Bey the respect that not even the Grammy Awards could muster. The brief teaser shows Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) relishing in the glory of last year’s Lemonade, so much so that he can’t even be bothered to open up a door. Classic Titus. The teaser offers little by way of plot hints, but does promise a return of the kind of absurd humor the show has been known for since its premiere in 2015. New episodes of the Netflix show drop on the streaming service on May 19.
‘Ghost in the Shell’ Reveals Another New Trailer

Warner Brothers Finds the Director They Need
The news that Ben Affleck was stepping down as director for the forthcoming The Batman sent tingles of worry down the spines of nerds everywhere, even with the assurances that Affleck was doing it for the right reasons. Perhaps the announcement that Matt Reeves (Let the Right One In) is taking over will assuage those fears a tad. The news broke Friday afternoon that WB made Reeves the offer and now the new Batman movie seems to back on track. Good thing. Somehow, Affleck’s Batman has been the best part of the DCEU franchise, and may just become the saving grace of the entire ordeal when this is all said and done. Now, if only Warner Brothers would quit worrying and meddling so much, maybe they’ll finally be able to make a decent movie. Anything’s possible, right?
