Machine Gun Kelly makes directorial debut with Good Mourning

Machine Gun Kelly has made his name as a musician and an occasional actor. However, for his next project, the rapper-turned-rocker wants people to know and remember his real name, Colson Baker, because he is about to make his directorial debut with the stoner comedy Good Mourning. Naturally, he is also set to star in the film.

Open Road Films has released two trailers for Good Mourning, the first of which is a very abbreviated and a very tame preview for this comedy. Baker plays London Clash, an actor who is on the cusp of greater stardom. However, London’s career aspirations no longer seem very important when his girlfriend seemingly breaks up with him in a confusing text.

The Red Band trailer goes for much raunchier comedy, and it shows us that London and his friends will deal with this problem like they deal with everything else: By getting really high.

Here’s the official synopsis from Open Road Films:

“Good Mourning follows movie star London Clash (Colson Baker, aka Machine Gun Kelly, acting and directing under his own name). When he wakes up to an implied breakup text from the love of his life, his world is turned upside down. And the timing couldn’t be worse because the most important meeting of his career is scheduled for later that same day. Compounded by chaotic roommates, and wildly unpredictable twists and turns, London’s day keeps going downhill until, ultimately, he is forced to choose between pursuing his one true love and landing a life-changing, starring role in a major motion picture.”

The film also stars Becky G, Dove Cameron, GaTa (one of many good things about the FXX show Dave), Zach Villa, Boo Johnson, Jenna Boyd, and Whitney Cummings. Pete Davidson and Megan Fox will be featured in cameo roles.

Good Mourning will be available on demand and in theaters on May 20.

Everything you need to know about Yellowstone season 6
The cast of Yellowstone.

Since its premiere in 2018, Yellowstone has been a breakout hit for The Paramount Network and one of the most popular shows on TV. Taylor Sheridan's modern Western also revitalized Kevin Costner's career by placing him in the lead as John Dutton, the patriarch of the Dutton family, who own the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, one of the largest ranches in Montana.

The fifth season of Yellowstone premiered in 2022, but the future of the series and the franchise were called into question when reports emerged that Costner was leaving the show and Paramount Network had already ordered a sequel series that will continue without Costner's involvement. To bring everyone up to speed, here's everything you need to know about the future of Yellowstone.
Will there be a sixth season of Yellowstone?
Sort of, but not something labeled as Yellowstone season 6. The six remaining episodes of Yellowstone are still technically part of the fifth season, or season 5B, as Paramount has called it. But at the same time that Paramount confirmed the end of Yellowstone, the studio also announced that a contemporary spinoff is on the way that will feature many of the show's current cast members.

Kevin Costner in Yellowstone.

Kevin Costner recently unveiled the first look at his upcoming multipart Western Horizon: An American Saga. However, for the vast majority of Yellowstone fans, the only saga they want is the conclusion of the Dutton family's story and a glimpse of what comes next. Costner reinvigorated his career by headlining Yellowstone as John Dutton, but his clashes with Paramount Network and showrunner Taylor Sheridan have left Costner's future with the franchise in question.

Although we're still several months away from the return of the series, we're sharing everything we know about Yellowstone season 5, part 2. And we'll keep updating this post when anything newsworthy comes up.

A man and a woman talk in court in Presumed Innocent.

After last week's logjam of new seasons for The Boys and House of the Dragon, it was inevitable that the next week wouldn't be quite as spectacular. The only noteworthy new show is Hulu's Canadian comedy series Shoresy. And since it would have been lost in the shuffle last week, we're taking a look at Apple TV+'s legal drama Presumed Innocent.

Taken together with the other shows that have premiered this month, including The Acolyte and Clipped, as well as a new half season of Bridgerton, it doesn't get much better than this in the streaming-verse. To catch all of these series and more, check out the best new shows to stream below.
