In most cases, a film or TV series gets plenty of build up, with a lot of footage shown that's edited to try to not really give anything away (the effectiveness of this is debatable). Apple has followed this route for the majority of its content. But, with the upcoming drama The Tragedy of Macbeth, that hasn't really been the case. Until now.
It's the start of 2022, and Apple TV+ has a lot of content that's going to launch on the service throughout the next 11 months. However, Apple can't slow down. As a result, we're going to keep hearing about new shows and films and documentaries, especially in an effort to keep up with the competition.
Apple already has quite a bit of family-friendly content to watch on Apple TV+. The company bet big on the Peanuts franchise, for instance. They did the same with Fraggle Rock, too, securing the streaming rights of old episodes while ordering fresh content starring the alien puppets. And now one of those new entries is set to premiere later this month.
In January of 2021, it was reported that Ridley Scott was bringing his film about the life of Napoleon Bonaparte to Apple TV+. We already know that Joaquin Phoenix (C'mon C'mon) is set to star in the film as Bonaparte, and we learned later that Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) would be joining him. However, there's been a bit of a change as far as casting is concerned.
Apple is researching a universal remote with a Touch ID fingerprint scanner that could simplify entering passwords and controlling smart home appliances and other devices.
Normally, Apple TV+ has a pretty solid routine for promoting new content coming to the streaming platform. The initial announcement, which is followed by a teaser trailer some time later, and, finally, an official trailer that's usually at least a couple of minutes in length. This is all meant to drum up attention for the new series, film, or documentary making its debut on the platform.
Tom Hanks is a household name, but the legendary actor wasn't always so keen on the idea of having his recent films actually stream only in households. However, Hanks has found a place on Apple TV+, with two of the largest film releases on the streaming platform to date.
Back in November of 2019, Apple TV+ gave a full series order to a workplace thriller called Severance. At that time, we learned that the series would be directed by Ben Stiller (Night at the Museum), and that it would star Adam Scott (Big Little Lies). We've been waiting ever since for our first look at what to expect, and now we finally have it.
Ted Lasso already has a holiday-themed episode as part of its latest season. But apparently that didn't stop the creative crew behind the show from putting together something a little bit more. And that's why we now have a holiday short film, which is animated.
Apple is coming in hot with another family-friendly series, which is set to arrive in the early goings of 2022. This one's based on a graphic novel memoir, and Apple's going all-in with the binge-worthy content this time around, too.
News initially broke about the upcoming thriller series Suspicion way, way back in March of last year. At the time, we heard that Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) had been tapped to take the leading role in the show. We learned a bit about the plot line, but, otherwise, details were pretty thin.
