‘The Circle’ Trailer: Emma Watson Is Being Watched

The Circle

As evidenced by the popularity of Black Mirror, feeling uneasy about technology is just part and parcel of life in the developed world in 2017. Who among us hasn’t felt a twinge of anxiety about where our Facebook photos or Twitter posts could end up, or worried that someone could be watching through our built-in laptop cameras? We fret a bit, and then we keep sharing and posting and liking things anyway. Because what else are you going to do? Just not be a part of modern society?

In The Circle, that stress gets taken to a whole other level when a bright young woman named Mae (Emma Watson) is hired by a powerful tech company that looks a bit like Google, Facebook, and Apple all rolled into one. At first, it seems like a warm and welcoming place with a tight-knit corporate culture — but pretty soon, she starts to see the true cost of ultimate transparency. Tom Hanks plays the company’s founder, and John Boyega a mysterious colleague.

‘Iron Fist’ Clip: Colleen Wing Brings the Pain

Iron Fist Colleen Wing clip

Finn Jones‘ Danny Rand may be at the center of Netflix’s Iron Fist, but he’s definitely not the show’s only resident hero. In fact, he may not even be the show’s coolest resident hero, if the first Iron Fist clip is any indication. This sneak peek offers a much better look at Danny’s buddy Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), who proves right off the bat that she’s a force to be reckoned with. Underestimate her at your own peril — you may just wind up like the two burly dudes who make the mistake of dismissing her as “a little girl.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - #WheresBlackWidow Gamora toys

The first Guardians of the Galaxy inspired some grumbling when fans realized that while merchandise featuring Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, and Groot was plentiful, toys of Gamora seemed to be few and far in between. #WheresGamora started trending, as audiences called out the studio for giving its female hero the short shrift. Then Marvel seemingly repeated the exact same blunder a year later with Avengers: Age of Ultron, which gave rise to the #WheresBlackWidow hashtag. Even the Hulk got involved with that one.

So, as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looms on the horizon, has Marvel learned its lesson? During an on-set interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige addressed the #WheresBlackWidow and #WheresGamora campaigns, and discussed the efforts the company is making fto ensure its female characters are better represented in the merchandise going forward.  Read More »

Netflix’s ‘The OA’ Renewed for Season 2

The OA Renewed for Season 2

Even after a full eight-episode season, The OA felt like it was just getting started. The finale raised as many questions as it answered, and left plenty of meat on the bone for future episodes to pick apart. So it’s with relief that we can report Prairie’s saga will continue on in the not-too-distant future. As of today, Netflix has officially renewed Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij‘s trippy supernatural drama for a second season.
