“You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows,” Bob Dylan sang. But these days, a guide through the seemingly endless flurry of pop culture offerings is just what we need. With that in mind, here is what’s on the radar screen in TV, music and film for the coming week.TVBig events: The ABC Murders (Feb. 1, Amazon Prime); I Am the Night (Jan. 28, Bravo); Russian Doll (Feb. 1, Netflix); The World’s Best (Feb. 3, CBS)Big Picture: John Malkovich as detective Hercule Poirot in a period drama created by the BBC and based on Agatha Christie’s famous novel!? It’s a no brainer for serious TV fans. Meanwhile, I Am the Night finds actor (and occasional starship captain) Chris Pine starring in another period crime drama. This time, it’s a six-part miniseries about a sketchy journalist searching for a teenage girl engulfed in a dark mystery surrounding her birth mother — one that could be tied to infamous Black Dahlia murder. Wonder Woman’s Patty Jenkins directs. Finally, Amy Poehler-produced Russian Doll is like a darker, raunchier version of Bill Murray’s classic comedy Groundhog Day. Orange is the New Black’s Natasha Lyonne stars as a woman who keeps re-living the same party — a night of festivities that always ends in her untimely death. Finally, The World’s Best is a reality competition series hosted by talk show host James Corden and judged by Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, Faith Hill and … the world. The multi-genre, multi-talent competition aims to crown “The World’s Best” with the help of global experts from “every field of entertainment.” It’s just like the Olympics minus the athletic talent, spirit, performance-enhancing drugs and corruption.Forecast: ABC, it’s easy as 123.MOVIESBig release on Feb. 1: Miss BalaBig picture: Miss Bala is part Mexican crime thriller, part “girl power” and part future clip in a re-election ad for U.S. President Donald Trump. It’s the story of a young Hispanic-American woman who is kidnapped and coerced into working for a Mexican drug cartel running operations along the border. Before the credits roll, she emerges empowered, armed and dangerous. Gloria (Gina Rodriguez) finds herself a pawn in a game between a drug lord and the DEA before inexplicably learning how to be a double agent and master manipulator — and all-around borderland badass. It’s like Taken meets The Departed meets a Fox News special report.Forecast: Miss Bala isn’t going to be slated for any international film festivals. You’ll probably spend time catching up on Oscar nominees this week.Composer and singer Zach Condon of Beirut [AFP/Getty Images]MUSICBig Release on Feb. 1: Beirut (Gallipoli)Big Picture: Zach Condon’s fifth album, Gallipoli, was recorded in New York City, Italy and Berlin (where the talented American calls home). The multi-instrumentalist and talented vocalist is the creative force behind Beirut’s spellbinding orchestral indie rock. Gallipoli finds Condon returning to the organ arrangements and haunting brass instruments that helped cast the musical magic on Beirut’s first two albums (Gulag Orkestar and The Flying Club Cup, which stand up as two of my favourite recordings of all time).Forecast: Beirut’s new album may have been made on Earth, but the music will be out of this world.
