Inherent Vice could be interesting...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inherent_Vice_(film)

Yes, it's a 2014 release. So I'm slow... :roll:

Skam ("Shame") is a Norwegian young adult TV series about the daily life of teenagers at the Hartvig Nissen School, a fashionable high school at Frogner in West Endd Oslo. It is produced by NRK P3, which is part of the NRK. The first clip of the series was posted online on 22 September 2015, the first episode aired on TV on 25 September. The main characters differ from season to season (Eva in the first, Noora in the second and Isak in the third). Viewers can follow the characters of the show on Instagram or Facebook and stay in touch with them. Throughout the week different scenes of the following episode are posted on the Skam official website in real-time, as well as text messages between the characters. The full episode airs every Friday on NRK3 and is a compilation of the clips posted previously.

From 'The Guardian'

Hit Scandinavian multimedia online youth drama Skam (Shame), which has gripped teens across the world, is to be remade for English-speaking audiences. The Norwegian drama, which has loosely been likened to Channel 4’s popular teen-targeted series Skins, has become a global digital hit, whose teenage fans have petitioned the broadcaster to add English subtitles for international fans. Simon Fuller, the man behind the Spice Girls and the international Idol TV franchise, such as American Idol, has struck a global deal with the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, the show’s broadcaster, to remake Shame for English-speaking audiences. Fuller’s XIX Entertainment will produce a version of the show for the US and Canada, which is expected to be sold to other English-speaking markets such as the UK. “Shame is an important show,” said Fuller. “There is precious little content created primarily for a teen audience and Shame provides this with great honesty and integrity. The show packs a punch and is leading the way in exploring multiplatform storytelling.” Shame, which launched in Norway in 2015 and is now on its third season, has been a massive hit. It focuses on a group of 16-year-olds and has had audiences in its home country as high as 1.3 million of a total population of 5 million.

I have seen many clips with English subtitles on YouTube. The USA remake is sure to censor the gay content, because as we all know it is the rule in USA that all gay relationships must end in disaster, and those characters must either get saved by Jesus or go on to live a life of 'Hell on Earth'

Sad that they'd much rather have violence than love. *:|*

I'll try too:
Strangely, more movies appeal to me this year.

Fast & Furious eigth (looks so dumb that I must see it)
Guy Ritchie's King Arthur (looks fun and fresh)
Alien Covenant (I think it will deceive the fans, like Prometheus did; but I'll go anyway)
A cure for life
Legend of Conan :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :evil: (will it come out of development hell one day?)
John Wick 2

As for Acquart's work, two of three movies on hold are now viewable.
Remains ex-Billionnaire.

There does seem to be quite a lot of at least potentially interesting/good movies this year. Here's hoping they succeed.
