HOTCHKA Daily News - August 3, 2022


★After yesterday's Batgirl bombshell, viewers have noticed that HBO Max has quietly been removing Max Original films from the streaming service. So far six titles have disappeared: Moonshot, Superintelligence, The Witches, An American Pickle, Locked Down and Charm City Kings. In addition to the removals and the ditching of Batgirl and the Scoob! sequel, the reboot of the comedy House Party, which was set to debut July 28 had also been scrubbed from the schedule.

Andor showrunner Tony Gilroy has confirmed the latest Disney+ Star Wars series will consist of two seasons. The final scenes of the last episode will tie directly into the Rogue One feature film.

★Disney+ has set Wednesday, September 28 as the premiere date for Season 2 of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. In Season 2, after winning back the Mighty Ducks team name last year, the squad-with-heart and their coach Alex Morrow (Lauren Graham) take to the road to attend an intense summer hockey institute in California run by charming yet hardcore former NHL player, Colin Cole (Josh Duhamel). It’s a place for kids to get excellent at hockey — without school to get in the way. As our Ducks try to survive in this super-competitive environment, they’re faced with the question: Can you win summer?

★With yesterday's announcement of a reimagined Road House remake starring Jake Gyllenhall coming to Amazon Prime Video, an addition to the cast has been named: UFC champ Conor McGregor will make his acting debut in the film.
