Interesting to see this trend take hold of creating Television series out of successful movies - Fargo, Snatch, and now Get Shorty to name a few. I know it will get done to death, but hopefully we get a few good series out of it before then. Fargo has been amazing so far, and from reading this article it sounds like Get Shorty could last for awhile on TV.
"With a brand new 'Star Wars' film on the horizon, it also means a massive marketing blitz is forthcoming.

"The cookbook, which can be pre-ordered for $24.99 on the Long Prawn website, features dishes that range from a simple burger inspired by Ocean’s 11 to a more ambitious plate of game bird, potatoes, and gravy inspired by Snatch. The book also features beautifully, if chaotically, arranged photographs of each dish in various states of consumption."
“VR certainly offers a form of entertainment experience that is new and striking, but perhaps of equal importance is the fact it is tied to technology. Entertainment companies can market a unique experience that audiences can only have if they go to a VR-capable cinema or purchase the requisite headset and hardware.” - film and gaming expert Michael Pigott of Warwick University
And speaking of critics...sometimes they may be trying to warn audiences to little avail.
