NETFLIX'S ENOLA HOLMES

Netflix has released four images and details from Enola Holmes, the movie available for streaming beginning in September.

Here's how the movie is described:

"England, 1884 -- a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she's gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for 'proper' young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London.

"But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history.

"Based on the beloved book series by Nancy Springer, Enola Holmes is a dynamic new mystery-adventure that introduces the world's greatest detective to his fiercest competition yet: his teenage sister. The game is afoot."

JOEL MCHALE TALKS DC'S STARGIRL

Joel McHale will appear on CBS' The Talk on Thursday, June 30 and talks about playing Starman in The CW's DC's Stargirl series.

"I got to be a superhero and I spent way more time getting fitted than actually on set, because my character dies in the first three minutes of the show...no, I'll come back you'll see," McHale said. "It takes so much time to get those suits fitted. It's super fun.

"Starman comes back and has a staff and shoots out a lot of energy and then I die and Luke Wilson says goodbye to me. And Amy Smart is in the show and Brec Bassinger who is a 21-year-old actor. She is Stargirl and that woman puts in the hours."

McHale said he joined the project because of show creator Geoff Johns. "He created the whole series -- Stargirl is based on his sister who passed away in the 90's, so it's very near and dear to his heart. So, him asking me to be a part of it, I was just like, I will be there in a New York minute. And I would go back tomorrow, even during Covid. I'd go back properly covered, but it was just an honor."
