MOVIES

“Justice League”

The long awaited “Justice League” movie is finally here after more than three years in development. Under the direction of Zack Snyder, the movie will try to vault the Justice League into the same echelon as “The Avengers” and other Marvel films. Just like the comic books, the films sees Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and the rest of the crew joining forces for the good of humanity. Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill continue their roles as Batman and Superman, respectively. Expectations are high with Snyder and Joss Whedon involved. (Premieres Nov. 17)

 

“30 for 30: Nature Boy”

ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary series is launching perhaps its greatest idea yet: A doc on Ric Flair, the pro wrestling icon. ESPN’s documentaries are always well done, but the Nature Boy doc has been anticipated for years. It looks like it’s taking a hard look at Flair, his legacy and his pitfalls as a man. The timing is fascinating too, as Flair was recently hospitalized in critical condition. Flair, 68, is OK now but recently said he was having as many as 15 drinks per day, which nearly led to organ failure. (Premieres Nov. 7)

 

TV

“Future Man”

The latest effort from comedy producers Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen is “Future Man,” a ridiculous time-traveling comedy that also looks funny as hell. The show revolves around a video-gaming playing janitor (played by Josh Hutcherson) who is recruited to travel through time and save life on Earth by two futuristic warriors who came to life from his favorite video game. The game, they explain, is actually a recruiting device to find the one person who can save the universe. The result is something that’s one part “Bill & Ted” with a little bit of “Back to the Future.” Rogen and Goldberg are behind comedies such as “Pineapple Express,” “This is The End” and “Superbad.” (Premieres Nov. 14 on Hulu)

 

Finding Escobar’s Millions

The world has been fascinated all over again with cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar ever since “Narcos” became a hit. A new Discovery show is taking a different look at Escobar and his legacy — in fact, they’re digging it up. “Finding Escobar’s Millions” is exactly what the name suggests. It’s a pair of ex-CIA operatives trying to find Escobar’s money that he famously buried around Colombia. It’s part treasure hunt, part look at the world of Escobar all these years after his death. (Airing now on Discovery)

 

MUSIC

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

If you never got to enjoy the marvelous voice of Sharon Jones when she was alive, do yourself a favor and check her out now. Jones died in September at the age of 60 after a lengthy battle with cancer. She was an old soul, sounding like a voice from the ’50s or ’60s. Along with her band, The Dap Kings, Jones’ final album will be released this month. It’s called “Soul of a Woman” and it’s more of what made her great. (In stores Nov. 17)

 

Morrissey

Morrissey, the soul-baring British rock singer, is back with his first album in three years. It’s called “Low in High School” and marks his first work since “World Peace Is None of Your Business” in 2014. Morrissey earned his fame with The Smiths but has kept that loyal following throughout his solo career. He’s 58 these days, and still as popular as ever. (In stores Nov. 17)

 

ETC

Call of Duty: WWII

The “Call of Duty” surge is going to be big this year. Most years, a new “Call of Duty” game will get gamers blasting their way through war settings. But this might be one of the best yet. It’s “Call of Duty: WWII” and it focuses on one of the U.S.’s most famous wars. The “Call of Duty” series never really loses, so it’s just a matter of how big this game is going to be. Heading into the holiday season, we’re thinking B-I-G. (In stores now)

 

Giant Millennium Falcon Drone

What to get for the “Star Wars” fan who seemingly has everything? Well, how about a big ol’ Millennium Falcon drone that they can pilot themselves? This ain’t no puny drone, this thing is 27-inches by 20-inches. We’re not sure if it can make the Kessel Run in 12 parasecs, but it has a range of 250 feet. Get your amateur Han Solo on! (Available on Amazon)
