Why it’s so difficult to turn books into movies. We are almost always of the opinion that the book is better than the movie, but that may be for good reason: turning books into movies is really tricky! The latest episode of the A.V. Club’s Film Club digs into the challenges that come with movie adaptations and it’s a fascinating listen.
A new interview with Art Spiegelman. Comic legend and Maus creator talks about his latest illustration project, COVID lockdown, and some of his most (accidentally) controversial magazine covers.

The Matrix 4 trailer. We’re already counting down the days until the film premieres! In the meantime, Den of Geek’s breakdown of the trailer gave us a lot to think about.
