Exclusive look at Irreverent teases a crisis of faith at a bar

In Peacock’s Irreverent, Colin Donnell stars as a criminal mediator who is forced to leave Chicago after committing a murder. Forced to fly out of the country, Donnell ends up at a bar and meets a man of God who will unexpectedly change his life.

In this exclusive look at Irreverent, Mr. Keegan (Donnell) sits at the bar with the talkative and intrusive Reverend Mackenzie Boyd (PJ Byrne) for a drink. While the Reverend believes the universe is sending him a sign about their encounter, Keegan quickly shuts that idea down, even going so far as to deny the existence of God. As the dejected Reverend questions his faith, Keegan tells him to “stop looking for God to give you something and go take it for yourself.”

Eventually, Keegan’s travels will take him to Far North Queensland to become the town’s clergyman as circumstances allow him to take on the identity of Reverend Boyd. “Mack” will now have to assume the responsibilities of the Reverend to maintain his cover. While the mob begins its hunt, Mack eventually warms up to the town and starts to bond with the residents, something he could have never imagined previously.

Created by Paddy Macrae, Irreverent combines elements of a crime saga with a fish-out-of-water premise, resulting in a series that is as funny as it is dramatic. Co-starring alongside Donnell and Byrne are Kylie Bracknell, Briallen Clarke, Tegan Stimson, Ed Oxenbould, Wayne Blair, Russell Dykstra, Calen Tassone, and Jason Wilder. Andrew Knight, Debbie Lee, Alastair McKinnon will executive produce on the project. Irreverent stems from Matchbox Pictures, which is part of Universal International Studios, as a co-production between Peacock and Netflix Australia. It will be distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.

Irreverent premieres on Thursday, November 30 on Peacock. All ten episodes will drop at once.

Best new movies coming to theaters in 2024
Tom Hardy and Austin Butler in The Bikeriders.

It seems that Hollywood was too quick to crown Bad Boys: Ride or Die as the savior of the summer box office. Because Pixar's Inside Out 2 blew away all box office projections with a $154 million opening last weekend. That's not too far behind Barbie's $162 million opening from last year. Inside Out 2 probably won't have the legs that Barbie did at the box office, but it's well on its way to being one of the biggest hits of the year. A $500 million domestic finish for Inside Out 2 is not an unreasonable estimate when the film finally leaves theaters.

In the short run, this week's new addition, The Bikeriders, has no shot at overtaking Inside Out 2. None. This battle was over before the first motorcycle started. Unfortunately for The Bikeriders, it's unlikely to take No. 2 either, since Bad Boys: Ride or Die proved to be good counterprograming for Inside Out 2 last weekend. That's likely going to mean a third place finish for The Bikeriders at best.

The best movie and show trailers for the week of June 21
Lukas Gage in Smile.

Unless the studios warn us ahead of time, it's hard to predict which trailers will drop on any given day of the week. Fortunately, the best movie and show trailers for the week of June 21 have been very strong. But more so on the TV side than with films.

It's not often that two different Batman-related series release videos in the same week. And HBO/Max is responsible for two out of the three shows represented here. It could have been a complete sweep for Max if Warner Bros. Discovery hadn't dropped its next Batman animated series in the name of cutting the budget to make the company look good in the eyes of Wall Street.
