Pop culture is a never-ending world of updates, teases, trailers, and hopefully releases. What’s New Wednesday is Dorkaholics’ way to keep us all up to date with what’s new across comics, tv, film, games, and more! This week, the focus is on Shortcomings, Dune: Part 2, With Love Season 2, Never Have I Ever Season 4, Air, and NBCUniversal’s programming plans for Syfy, USA Network, E!, and Bravo.
- Shortcomings: Release Date Announced for August 4, 2023
Randall Park’s directorial debut Shortcomings will be released by Sony Pictures Classics on August 4, 2023. The film was screened earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and will be next shown at the Tribeca Festival in the Spotlight Narratives section.
The film stars Justin H. Min, Sherry Cola, and Ally Maki, and features Tavi Gevinson, Debby Ryan, Sonoya Mizuno, Timothy Simons, and Jacob Batalon in a story based on Eisner-winning cartoonist Adrian Tomine’s classic graphic novel Shortcomings. The work has been a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and is regarded as a landmark of Asian American fiction.
About Shortcomings: In the film, Ben (Justin H. Min), a struggling filmmaker, lives in Berkeley, California, with his girlfriend, Miko (Ally Maki), who works for a local Asian American film festival. When he’s not managing an arthouse movie theater as his day job, Ben spends his time obsessing over unavailable blonde women, watching Criterion Collection DVDs, and eating in diners with his best friend Alice (Sherry Cola), a queer grad student with a serial dating habit. When Miko moves to New York for an internship, Ben is left to his own devices, and begins to explore what he thinks he might want.
- Dune: Part Two Trailer Drops
The first trailer for Dune: Part Two shows that the sequel is just as epic and grand as the first film, and even necessitates another viewing.
#DunePartTwo only in theaters November 3.
Long Live the Fighters.

Senior year has finally arrived. Between college conundrums, identity crises and crushes that won’t fade, are Devi and the gang ready to face the future?
