‘Game of Thrones’ Writers Defend Last Season’s Controversial Pacing Choices

For the first several seasons of Game of Thrones, the show made a point to take things slowly in terms of travel, establishing huge distances between its major cities and building the reality of its fantasy world by having characters traverse those distances across long stretches of episodes. But in season 7, it was as if the show mounted an ACME rocket, lit the fuse, and hung on for dear life as it rocketed forward at a breakneck pace. Now some of the folks involved with creating the show have...

‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Cast Adds ‘Harry Potter’ Veteran Miranda Richardson

HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel cast is getting a little dose of magic. Harry Potter veteran Miranda Richardson, who played gossip columnist Rita Skeeter in two Potter films and one theme park attraction, is the latest to head to Westeros – but she’s not the only Wizarding World alum who’s crossed over between franchises. TVLine reports that English actress Miranda Richardson (The Crying Game, Sleepy Hollow, the TV miniseries Merlin) has been cast in the prequel to HBO’s mega-hit fantasy serie...

‘Olympic Dreams’ Review: A Look at Love in the Olympic Village [SXSW]

While on the phone with her coach, Winter Olympics athlete Penelope (Alexi Pappas) rambles about her training and her hopes for the competition. “I hope that I really feel like an olympian when I’m done,” she says with nervous energy. That’s the theme of Olympic Dreams in a nutshell: feeling like an olympian means going for the gold, by any means necessary. In both Penelope and Ezra’s (Nick Kroll) case, it’s their friendship that makes them evaluate what the gold/goal is for them – and ho...

‘Lucy in the Sky’ Trailer: Natalie Portman Goes to Space and Back in Noah Hawley’s Directorial Debut

“You got to see the vast celestial everything and it blew your mind, so now nothing makes sense.” Lucy in the Sky questions what happens when astronauts experience something literally out-of-this world, and return to Earth and all its humdrum activities. The feature film from Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, making his directorial debut, looks as cerebral and trippy as that experience would be, anchored by a tremulous performance by Natalie Portman. See the Lucy in the Sky trailer below...

Gegege no Kitarou Has a Murderous Development

The action-heavy 6th season of Gegege no Kitarou has had a rather shocking development in its 47th broadcast, with things starting off rather standard as the usual characters encounter another otherworldly being causing mischief – but concluding with a shocking scene that (supposedly) spells death for one beloved character. Omake:

Showtime’s ‘Halo’ TV Show Brings On a Second Showrunner

The history of a Halo adaptation is rife with stops and starts, but it seems as if Showtime is finally going to bring the popular video game to the small screen – and they’ve hired a second showrunner to do it. Steven Kane (TNT’s The Last Ship) is joining original showrunner Kyle Killen to tackle the premium channel’s “most ambitious series ever,” and you can read on to learn why this show requires two people to lead the charge. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Steven Kane (The Last Ship...

Hans Zimmer is Scoring ‘Dune’, Which Has an Official Synopsis and A Possible New Cast Member

Aside from John Williams, Hans Zimmer is in a rarified group of modern film composers who have celebrity status and widespread recognition based on their names alone. Zimmer is an Oscar winner who’s crafted scores for films like The Lion King, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Inception, and dozens more, and now he’s adding another sci-fi notch to his belt: Zimmer will provide the Dune score for Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming movie adaptation of the classic Frank Herbert novel. Production has begun on t...

See the First Poster for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio look lean, mean, and a little Photoshopped in the very first Once Upon a Time in Hollywood poster, which gives us a new look at Quentin Tarantino‘s highly anticipated film. The duo take center stage in the poster, which will be Tarantino’s ode to the year 1969, a year of great political and cultural upheaval in the U.S. – and the year of the Manson Murders.

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2’ Trailer: Being Wicked Never Felt So Good

Just like magic, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is back in no time at all with its second season. Or rather, part 2 of the Netflix teenage fantasy-drama series, based on the streaming service’s confusing labeling of its recent original shows. But you know who’s not confused? Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka), who has fully embraced the wicked side of herself and is exploring her identity and relationship with Satan — as well as her romantic relationships with poor ex-boyfriend Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch)...

‘Creed 2’ May Have Almost Featured Another Cameo…By Apollo Creed’s Ghost?

Creed II continues the legacy connection to the classic Rocky franchise by having Michael B. Jordan‘s character Adonis Creed face-off with Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu). He just so happens to be the son of Rocky Balboa’s dangerous opponent Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), the man responsible for the death of his fellow boxer Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). But instead of only continuing the legacy of Creed, it apparently almost featured an appearance by Apollo Creed himself in the form of a ghost. ...

‘The OA Part II’ Early Buzz: Season 2 Doubles Down On the Crazy Ambition That Made Brit Marling’s Netflix Series So Weird and Wonderful

When Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij debuted their passion project The OA on Netflix in 2016, critics raved about the dizzying, dazzling, divisive sci-fi series that followed a young blind woman who returned after a mysterious disappearance with her sight restored. New episodes never debuted, leaving only a legacy of controversy and the memory of a weird modern dance scene in its finale. But now the series has returned, and it is as bonkers as ever. The long-awaited second season of The OA, or ...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Teaches a Masterclass About Writing a Great Death in “Project Daedalus”

Can Star Trek: Discovery not destroy my soul every week? While the show has done its best job of keeping tension and emotions high, this week’s episode, “Project Daedalus,” is the season’s saddest and most intense yet. At the same time, it was also a masterclass of how to write a great death. As we’ve seen already multiple times, Season 2 has made it a point to show up Season 1 in terms of characterization, storyline, and overall depth of meaning, and this week’s sad death continues tha...

Apple Orders ‘Pachinko’ TV Series Adaptation from ‘The Terror’ Showrunner

Apple is adding to its impressive oeuvre of forthcoming original titles with a series order of a Pachinko TV series based on Min Jin Lee‘s bestselling novel of the same name. The multigenerational saga of a Korean family that migrates to Japan in the 20th century is a moving, sprawling dramatic epic that already piques interest because of its unique focus on the Korean immigrant experience in Japan. But throw The Terror co-showrunner Soo Hugh‘s name in there, and you’ve got our attention. De...

‘Captive State’ Co-Writer Erica Beeney Discusses the Influence of History [Interview]

Captive State is a sci-fi thriller that moves like clockwork. Director Rupert Wyatt‘s film always maintains its propulsion without any redundancies or large chunks of tedious exposition. Like the characters trying to start an uprising in a world dominated by aliens, Wyatt and co-writer Erica Beeney always keep their story moving. Compared to other bloated or gigantic alien invasion movies, Captive State is a refreshingly minimalist and stripped down sci-fi movie. Similar to Wyatt’s Rise of the ...

‘Adopt a Highway’ Review: An Honest, Open-Road Ballad About Life’s Unpredictability [SXSW]

Actor Logan Marshall-Green ’s directorial debut Adopt A Highway feels tailor-made for Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival. It has nothing to do with horror, mind you, despite Blumhouse’s production banner. What could double as an acoustic country ballad whispers a nomad folk tale about one simple task: getting by. Indie bloodlines run through Marshall-Green’s jailhouse poetry without overly romanticized narratives, more appropriately about passing moments than revelations. It’s about mu...

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Hologram Ana de Armas is Going ‘Blonde’ as Marilyn Monroe

‘The Humans’ Movie Adaptation Enlists Richard Jenkins, Amy Schumer, Steven Yeun, and More

Hollywood mega-producer Scott Rudin is one of the few people who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award (EGOT), and he’s arguably as well-known for his theater work as he is for his movies. Now he’s combining those two mediums and producing a film adaptation of the Broadway play The Humans, and he’s secured an excellent cast to star. Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water), Amy Schumer (Trainwreck), Steven Yeun (Burning, The Walking Dead), and more are on board. Keep reading to learn abou...

After three seasons, the Netflix series One Day at a Time has officially been cancelled by the streaming service. But this may not be the end of the road just yet: Sony Pictures Television, which produced the show, is planning to try to find a new home for it. One Day at a Time, a modern revamp of producer Normal Lear‘s show from the 1970s, has a passionate fanbase, and for good reason: it was one of the few shows that finished 2018 with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
