  • ♪♪♪ >> Stephen: HEY, WELCOME BACK.

  • WE ALL KNOW 2020 WAS A BAD YEAR FOR THE FILM INDUSTRY, DUE TO

  • BOTH COVID-19 AND THE RELEASE OF "DOLITTLE."

  • BUT THINGS ARE STARTING TO LOOK UP FOR HOLLYWOOD BECAUSE IT WAS

  • JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THERE'S A NEW MOVIE IN THE WORKS BASED ON

  • THE RUBIK'S CUBE.

  • IT'S SURE TO CAPTURE ALL THE FUN OF THE CLASSIC TOY... FROM

  • GETTING ONE AS A GIFT, TO REALIZING HOW HARD IT IS, TO

  • SHOVING IT IN THE BACK OF A DRAWER AND NEVER THINKING ABOUT

  • IT AGAIN.

  • AND IF A MOVIE WASN'T ENOUGH, IT TURNS THERE ARE ALSO PLANS TO

  • TURN THE RUBIK'S CUBE INTO A GAME SHOW.

  • A HINT FOR CONTESTANTS: JUST PEEL OFF THE STICKERS, REARRANGE

  • THEM, AND PRETEND YOU'VE WON.

  • NOW SOME PEOPLE ARE SAYING THESE PROJECTS ARE JUST TRYING TO

  • CAPITALIZE ON A RENEWED INTEREST IN CLASSIC GAMES SINCE CHESS GOT

  • A MAJOR POPULARITY BOOST THANKS TO THE HIT NETFLIX SERIES "THE

  • QUEEN'S GAMBIT."

  • BUT I THINK THIS RUBIK'S CUBE IDEA HAS LEGS.

  • THERE MUST BE MILLIONS OF DIE-HARD CUBE HEADS OUT THERE

  • JUST CLAMORING FOR MORE RUBIK-CENTRIC

  • CONTENT ON MULTIPLE PLATFORMS.

  • WHICH IS WHY I DEVELOPED MY OWN 14-PART PRESTIGE STREAMING

  • SERIES BASED ON THE RUBIK'S CUBE.

  • IT MIXES ELEMENTS OF "THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT" WITH A STRONG

  • DESIRE TO MAKE A LOT OF MONEY ON THE POPULARITY OF "THE QUEEN'S

  • GAMBIT."

  • AND TONIGHT, I PROUDLY PRESENT AN EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEAK.

  • (DRAMATIC MUSIC) (TICKING CLOCK)

  • >> THE WORLD OF COMPETITIVE RUBIK'S CUBING IS A MAN'S WORLD.

  • USUALLY YOUNG MEN.

  • CHILDREN, REALLY.

  • >> NOT ANYMORE.

  • (MUSIC SWELLS) I WASN'T JUST HANDED MY SEAT AT

  • THE INTERNATIONAL WORLD RUBIKS CUBE OLYMPIAD.

  • I HAD TO OVERCOME SO MUCH: SEXISM.

  • A SPRAINED WRIST.

  • TEMPORARY COLOR-BLINDNESS.

  • >> YOU MAY BE THE GREATEST NATURAL TALENT I'VE EVER SEEN.

  • BUT MUST MASTER THE OPENING MOVE KNOWN ONLY TO THE MOST

  • DISTINGUISHED PLAYERS.

  • IT'S CALLED, "TURN THE LEFT BOTTOM MIDDLE, FORWARD TO THE

  • FRONT-FACING PART."

  • IT'S NOT LIKE CHESS.

  • WE DON'T GET TO HAVE COOL NAMES FOR THINGS.

  • >> IT MAY JUST BE A BLOCK COVERED IN LITTLE STICKERS

  • TO YOU, BUT TO ME IT'S THE ENTIRE WORLD!

  • OH, ALSO DRUGS.

  • I DO TONS OF DRUGS.

  • YOU DON'T KNOW ME!

  • >> TURN THE LEFT BOTTOM MIDDLE SIDEWAYS TOWARD THE FRONT FACING

  • PART.

  • >> STEPHEN: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH ACTRESS PRIYANKA CHOPRA

  • JONAS.

  • STICK AROUND.
