The series is based on the National Treasure film series starring Nicolas Cage as Benjamin Gates, the crafty treasure hunter who unearthed some of the world’s greatest valuables. In the first film, Gates discovered a map on the back of the Declaration of Independence, which led him to one of the world’s greatest treasures underneath Trinity Church in New York City. In the second film, Gates used the Book of Secrets to prove the innocence of his great-great-grandfather and find the city of gold inside Mount Rushmore. As of now, Cage is not scheduled to appear in the series.

Cormac Wibberley and Marianne Wibberley, who wrote both films, return as writers on the series. The Wibberleys will also serve as executive producers alongside the two producers of both films, Jerry Bruckheimer and Jon Turteltaub. Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed, Rick Muirragui, and Mira Nair will also serve as executive producers, with Nair directing the series as well.

Godzilla in Monarch: Legacy of Monsters Apple TV+ / Apple TV+

Just shy of his 70th birthday, Godzilla is now a TV star. Except not really. Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which premiered earlier this month on Apple TV+, takes place in the so-called MonsterVerse, aka the same continuity as the recent American movies featuring the radioactive reptile, his simian frenemy Kong, and some more skyscraper-sized beasts. But the G-man himself is scarcely involved; he pops up for only a few minutes across the 10-episode season, as if appearing for a contractually obligated cameo. You see, Monarch isn’t actually the Godzilla show. Subtitle aside, it’s less a monster mash than an ensemble melodrama about plucky monster hunters working out their family baggage.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom won't be the only film on the water this holiday season. Amazon MGM Studios' new period drama The Boys in the Boat is chronicling the story of the men's U.S. Olympic rowing team as it attempted to earn a place at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. Movie magic and CGI can create some compelling illusions, but rowing is a hard sport to fake if you don't know what you're doing. In a newly released video from behind the scenes of The Boys in the Boat, director George Clooney reveals how the cast trained together during their downtime to become a real rowing team.
