Y: The Last Man, on Hotstar, Is Like The Leftovers Meets Designated Survivor

Y: The Last Man — premiering Tuesday on Disney+ Hotstar in India, and also available FX on Hulu in the US — has had such a long and troubled road to the screen that it’s impossible to discuss the comic book adaptation without contemporary comparisons. In it, half the world’s population just drops dead all of a sudden without explanation.

As promised, Warner Bros. has unveiled the first full-length trailer for the fourth Matrix movie, that brings back both Keanu Reeves’ Neo, and Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity, who find themselves back in the virtual world that started it all. The Matrix Resurrections trailer shows that Neo and Trinity don’t recognise each other, and hints at major parts for Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (who seems to be playing a younger take on Morpheus, though maybe it’s just the similar get-up)…
