Starring Sharon Stone, Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller, Beau Bridges, Paul Reubens, Jennifer Ferrin, Devin Ratray, Michael Cerveris, James Ransone, Jeremy Bobb and Maya Kazan, “Mosaic” will be both an interactive storytelling experience, available as a free download in November, and a six-part limited series of the same name that will air on HBO in January 2018.

This weekend, Steven Soderbergh return to cinemas with “Logan Lucky,” and few people showed up. It’s a real shame because not only are audiences missing one of the most purely enjoyable films of the summer, but for folks who are nerds about the technical side of things, it’s truly a wonder.
