Latest Netflix News: ‘The Witcher’ gets abandoned at breakneck speed as three high-profile Netflix originals are sucked into a streaming black hole
Another day, another round of preposterous decision-making compounded by an unfortunate development or two that Netflix may or may not have any control over whatsoever.
The rise of parasocial equivalents for every human interaction was dauntingly rapid as is, but Netflix is only adding to the problem by plugging its interactive choose-your-own-adventure model into the next original destined for mediocrity.
Elsewhere, the streamer is beginning to feel the ramifications of those unfortunate Witcher developments, three original films have vanished from its release calendar, and the usual suspects are flying high on the charts.
Netflix made quite a choice by investing in Choose Love
The words “romantic comedy” and “bold” should hardly ever show up in the same sentence together, and when they do, it’s usually not the sort of bold one wishes to be designated as.
Such is the case with Choose Love, an upcoming romantic comedy that just received its first trailer earlier today. Indeed, the strategy being employed by Netflix here is to mesh the story together with a Bandersnatch-esque choose-your-own-adventure structure; one that they seem dead set on pushing until they end up with a piece of content that actually benefits from it.
Indeed, after the dire likes of the aforementioned Bandersnatch, Choose or Die? — among others — one would think that Netflix has received the memo by now, but judging by the fact that they’re banking on a dull genre to inject life into a duller shtick, perhaps those previous attempts have only made them more desperate.
The streamer’s latest true crime darling forgoes bloodshed for malicious charisma
It may not consist of the same tragic, often blood-stained components that give most true crime its disturbingly pathological draw, which is perhaps exactly why How to Become a Cult Leader has managed to carve out such a fascinating niche for itself.
Soaring on Netflix’s global charts as the seventh most-watched series around the world, the show unpacks the psychology of a variety of different cult leaders and their heinous, deceptively harmful methods of control, from Charles Manson to Jaimie Gomez to Shoko Asahara.
They may not seem as terrifying as a serial killer on the surface, but anyone who’s plunged into the topic at any depth knows that that’s exactly what makes cult leaders so dangerous.
Three more high-profile Netflix exclusives draw the short straw on the release date shakeup
It’s still unclear whether the strikes, malicious streaming practices, or some other third thing has anything to do with this decision, but refusing to offer up an explanation looks almost as bad as dragging three more original films down on one’s release calendar, as Netflix has done for Players, Shirley, and Spaceman earlier today.
The most lucrative victim of this dubious round of rearrangement has to be Spaceman, a sci-fi feature starring the resurgent Adam Sandler who will no doubt continue to prove that he’s a fantastic actor when he puts the pedal to the medal, and while we probably don’t need another rom-com in Players (despite the involvement of one Tom Ellis), Regina King’s highly anticipated biopic Shirley — about America’s first Black congresswoman Shirley Chisholm — certainly deserves better than this.
With the dawn of Liam Hemsworth fast approaching, boycotts of The Witcher are coming hard and fast
Even now, we’re still not entirely sure why season 3 of The Witcher will be Henry Cavill‘s last; was it his decision? Was it Netflix’s decision? Did they both have a hand in Cavill’s exit?
Whatever the case, the Witcher faithful seem unconcerned with the “why,” as disastrously declining viewership numbers for season 3 of The Witcher indicate that the Cavill diehards are putting their money where their mouth is.
It perhaps helps the boycotters’ case that volume 2 of season 3 of The Witcher is the worst-reviewed run of episodes the show has ever seen, but going from over a million unique views in six days to just 574,000 views in four days is nevertheless one of the harsher declines in Netflix’s history.
When it comes to action films, critics’ trash is Netflix’s treasure
Some words of wisdom for you all; all the star power in the world can’t elevate your film if the movie itself is nothing more than an abysmal knock-off of Taken.
And that’s exactly the bill that fits The Gunman – a 2015 action film packed to the brim with such names as Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Mark Rylance, and Ray Winstone, yet only managed a whimpering $24 million box office pull against a $40 million budget and a 17 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes to boot.
In other words, it’s exactly the sort of movie that Netflix viewers are bound to eat right up, which explains its sneaky Top 10 appearance on the U.K. and Ireland charts.

NFL MVP Odds: Tua Tagovailoa Is Now The Outright Leader Over Patrick Mahomes
NFL MVP Odds: Tua Tagovailoa Is Now The Outright Leader Over Patrick Mahomes – originally posted on Sportslens.com
For the second time in three weeks, the Miami Dolphins put on a historic offensive showing on Sunday. They scored the 3rd most points in NFL history against the Broncos, even forfeiting a chance at breaking the record of 73. It was a well-rounded effort that thrived in both the rushing and passing attacks, and it has quarterback Tua Tagovailoa all by himself when it comes to the favorite to win the NFL’s MVP award.
Tua Tagovailoa Is Now The Overall Favorite For NFL MVP

The award was Patrick Mahomes’ to lose. The Chiefs quarterback is the reigning MVP of the NFL, and he entered the season with the shortest odds to repeat (+600). He was the outright favorite, but trailing close behind were guys like Josh Allen and Joe Burrow. Mahomes and the Chiefs got out to a rough start in Week 1, as did the other MVP candidates.
But not Tagovailoa. His 466 yard, 3 touchdown performance vaulted him to the top of the leader board, where he took a share of the lead with Mahomes at +650 going into Week 2. Tua’s performance against the Patriots in the second game was solid enough to keep him near the top, but the top of the leaderboard was cluttered heading into Week 3.
The clutter is gone. Tagovailoa led the Dolphins to their historic 70 point day, completing 89% of his passes en route to 309 yards and 4 touchdown passes. He achieved those numbers in just three quarters of play, and the oddsmakers at the sports books have taken notice.
Big Test For Tagovailoa And Miami In Week 4

Pass Rating 121.9 1st

As of Monday morning, Tagovailoa was listed as the heavy favorite to win the NFL MVP award, coming in at +400, the shortest of any MVP odds so far this season. Mahomes was listed at +700 at the time of writing, though that number is subject to heavy change. The public will believe that Mahomes will eventually win the MVP award until it is firmly taken out of his grasp, and the more that they bet on him with longer odds, the more his number will come down.
Will it last? Tagovailoa and the Dolphins will face their biggest test of the young season this coming Sunday, as they travel to Buffalo to face the division rival Bills. They have had one of the top-2 defenses in the league through the first three games, and are familiar with Tua and the Dolphins, having played against them three times last year.
The Bills are currently 2.5 point favorites for Sunday’s game.

‘SNL’ Eyes an October Return Date Following End of the WGA Strike
There’s some light at the end of the tunnel for the historic dual strike as the WGA and AMPTP reached a tentative agreement to end the writers' strike this past Sunday. That means certain variety shows like Saturday Night Live have a clearer path to returning. It didn’t take long for SNL’s return to become public either as it's being reported that the award-winning sketch comedy show plans on an October premiere date for Season 49.
