Small-Screen Buzz: Watch X-Men in 'The Gifted' Teaser; See Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller in 'The Meyerowitz Stories'

The Gifted

We first heard about The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) last year, when it was revealed that Ben Stiller and writer/director Noah Baumbach would be reteaming for the movie, which was then in production. The cast was already quite strong, featuring Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson.

Netflix acquired worldwide rights to the movie, describing it as an "intergenerational tale of adult siblings contending with the influence of their aging father." Although Netflix has found success in distributing Adam Sandler's four most recent comedies, it was still somewhat surprising news, since filmmaker Baumbach's movies tend to appeal to a more specialized audience.

In any event, the movie will be making its world premiere at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival and new photos have been circulating on social media.

We're still waiting to hear if The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) will enjoy a theatrical run before heading to Netflix.

 

Meanwhile, we've been hearing about an X-Men television show coming from Marvel since January, when we learned that Bryan Singer would be directing the pilot episode for an action-adventure series.

Now the series has been officially picked up by Fox, according to Marvel. The Gifted will follow an ordinary suburban couple who discover their children possess mutant powers and then must go on the run from a hostile government. Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale and Jamie Chung star. The first teaser has now been released. Watch it below.

Bryan Singer sent his congratulations via social media.

 

The Gifted will debut on Fox this fall.
