Science-Fantasy Animated Film “Nimona” Proudly Celebrates Queerness

An unlikely duo going on a rambunctious colorful ride seeking truth and vindication is at the heart of the new animated film Nimona out in select US theaters this weekend and streaming on Netflix on June 30 – just in time to wrap up Pride month with themes of inclusivity and acceptance. Based on the New York Times bestselling webcomic character created a little over a decade ago by non-binary and transmasculine graphic artist ND Stevenson, Nimona is a mischievous teenage shapeshifter perceived as a villainous threat to be feared in a futuristic medieval world, when all she actually wants is to be accepted for who she really is while having fun creating chaos by transforming herself into various living beings.

Antonio Campos: ‘Working with actors is my favorite part’

In a way, Antonio Campos has been preparing through many years and several movies to make his most ambitious film yet, The Devil All the Time, an adaptation of the novel by Donald Ray Pollock that premieres this week in Netflix with a cast that includes Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Bill Skarsgård, Haley Bennett, Riley Keough, Sebastian Stan, Jason Clarke, and Mia Wasikowska, among many others. From his first feature film, Afterschool, which premiered in Cannes in 2008, the New York native has been obsessed with complicated human behavior and death, something he further explored in Simon Killer, which debuted at Sundance in 2012, and Christine, which premiered at the same festival in 2016.
