The New Pope

With the new decade now fully underway and new shows premiering each week, it’s the turn of HBO to release their latest series, “The New Pope.” Meanwhile, several blockbusters grace the small screen this week, including “Suicide Squad,” just under a month before its follow up.

Paolo Sorrentino’s anticipated “The New Pope” debuts tonight, acting as a follow up to the 2016 series “The Young Pope.” Originally planned as a second season, Jude Law reprises his role as Pope Pius XIII, which landed him a Golden Globe nomination, with John Malkovich starring as Pope John Paul III. Two episodes screened at Venice International Film Festival to critical acclaim. As a result, all eyes are on HBO’s latest drama and whether it can better the original.

Harley Quinn Will Either Make Or Break Suicide Squad

In just under a month, Margot Robbie returns to the character of Harley Quinn in “Birds of Prey,” therefore a rewatch of “Suicide Squad” may be worth it as a reminder of how much fun she has with this role. Viola Davis leads the charge as Amanda Walker, a government official tasked to recruit a group of imprisoned supervillains in an attempt to save the world. Will Smith and Jared Leto also star in this DC flick that won the Oscar for Best Makeup & Hairstyling.
