Atomic Blonde - for Annual Subscribers

John Wick co-director David Leitch is already best known as the director of next year's Deadpool sequel. But before taking on the Merc with a Mouth Leitch directed a different comic book adaptation: Atomic Blonde, based on the graphic novel The Coldest City. Starring Charlize Theron, Blonde looked to be a female John Wick. Does this '80s period-piece pack the punch of the Wick films? Listen to this bonus episode of Now Playing to find out!

Now Peaking Episode 42: Let’s Rock - For Annual Subscribers

Twenty-five years (give or take) after the Little Man from Another Place said “Let’s Rock” the town of Twin Peaks hasn’t stopped rockin’. Perhaps it’s because a certain key to the Great Northern hotel has returned to the town. Or perhaps it’s because Billy is still missing, and no one is more invested in the search than Audrey Horne. Or perhaps because the thorny Blue Rose case investigated by Gordon Cole will lead to that town’s wooded area. But to find out, prepare to Rock and Roll with the Now Peaking hosts as they get rocked by the twelfth episode of Twin Peaks: The Return!
