Meanwhile, CBS is switching things up with Big Brother’s first eviction episode delayed … again.
A day after the Eye network announced the summertime staple would be airing its eviction episode on Friday at 9 p.m. comes another big development…
The eviction has now been postponed to Sunday, and CBS will air two hours of Big Brother, beginning at 8 p.m. on the night.
No reason has been given for the second delay, but it is a confusing turn of events for longtime fans.
Over on Disney+, the streaming service has announced plans to stream Disney and Pixar’s Lightyear, beginning August 3, 2022.
“‘Lightyear’ looks amazing on the big screen, of course, but we are so excited to bring it to Disney+,” said Angus MacLane, who helmed the film.
“We devoted years of our lives to this film and we are so proud of it. We want to share it with as many people as possible. Disney+ not only gives more fans an opportunity to see ‘Lightyear,’ it gives us all the means to see it again and again.”
The movie hasn’t exactly been a huge performer at the box office, logging $213 million at the worldwide box office, coming in well behind previous entries in the franchise.
Finally, Netflix has announced a premiere date for the movie Look Both Ways, starring Lili Reinhart.
On the eve of her college graduation, Natalie’s [Lili Reinhart] life diverges into parallel realities: one in which she becomes pregnant and remains in her hometown, and another in which she does not and moves to Los Angeles.
In both journeys, Natalie experiences life-changing love, pursues her dream career as an artist, and rediscovers herself.
The movie also stars Danny Ramirez, David Corenswet, Aisha Dee, Andrea Savage, Luke Wilson, and Nia Long and is directed by Wanuri Kahiu.
The movie launches on Netflix on August 17.
