‘The Staircase’: Everything You Need to Know About the Classic True Crime Series Coming to Netflix — With New …

In keeping with the growing trend of true crime narratives, Netflix has ordered three new episodes continuing the 2004 documentary series, “The Staircase.” The first episode is slated to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival on April 28, with the original season as well as the new episodes coming to Netflix in the summer.

In 2018, every single No. 1 nonfiction best-seller has been about Trump

The Trump book industry remains incredibly lucrative — perhaps, even, at the expense of the rest of book publishing.

This year, The New York Times‘ hardcover nonfiction best-seller list has been topped exclusively by books centering on President Donald Trump. At the top of the list this week is Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World, in which former Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri reflects on her campaign’s loss and prescribes a new model of leadership for the Trump era. The three weeks before that, it was Michael Isikoff and David Corn’s Russian Roulette, extensively exploring Trump’s ties to all things Russia. And before that, of course, was the juggernaut Fire Fury, Michael Wolff’s gossipy White House tell-all which spent a staggering 10 weeks in the No. 1 spot.

It is firmly expected that James Comey’s A Higher Loyalty, the memoir in which the former

Trailer out for American Animals film about Transy book heist …

The trailer for “American Animals,” a true-crime film based on the 2004 book heist at Transylvania University, was released Wednesday and is already adding to the buzz the film generated at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

Cinema Blend complimented the trailer for its aesthetic, tension and unique take on college-based movies.

“True crime is compelling because it can shine a light on the horrors and inequities of the world around us, frighten us or just flat out flabbergast us with how something so ridiculous could have actually happened,” Nick Evans wrote. “’American Animals’ looks like it falls into the latter category. The new trailer for the film looks sexy and dangerous and far stranger than fiction.”

The trailer asserts that “This is not based on a true story” …. “This happened.”
