A Tale of Love and Darkness trailer

Natalie Portman is ready to take the leap from working with high-profile directors, to becoming one herself. The Oscar-winning actress’ first feature filmmaking effort is A Tale of Love and Darkness, an adaptation of the memoir by Amos Oz. Portman also stars in the film as Amos’ loving but long-suffering mother Fania. A Tale of Love and Darkness made its world premiere at Cannes last year, and is now on its way to release in the U.S. Watch the first A Tale of Love and Darkness trailer below.  Read More »

league of gods trailer

I’m not going to pretend to be an expert in Chinese literature, but I will be the guy who just watched the League of Gods trailer and knows what admirable insanity looks like. Because I spent about ten minutes Googling it, I can tell you that this movie is based on Fengshen Bang (otherwise known as Investiture of the Gods, Apotheosis of Heroes, and a variety of other titles), a 16th century Chinese novel written by Xu Zhonglin that combines aspects of actual Chinese history with mythology and fantasy to tell a story that sounds like a gigantic comic book crossover event. Except that it was, you know, written centuries before superheroes were a thing.

Anyway, let’s just watch this wacky trailer.

American Gods director

This year, something doesn’t feel quite right with Comic-Con. That’s true for a variety of reasons, but it’s mainly because Hannibal is no longer making appearances. A room packed with the enthusiasm of a large pack of Fannibals was always a treat. Hannibal may be off the air and out of Comic-Con, but that’s not stopping Bryan Fuller from attending. Yesterday, he brought with him his new show, American Gods (co-created by Michael Green).

Below, watch the American Gods trailer.

Why Sansa Didn't Tell Jon (Game of Thrones)

Season 6’s “Battle of the Bastards” was unquestionably one of the most thrilling hours Game of Thrones has ever done, tense and tragic and action-packed, with a dramatic last-minute twist to boot. But it also opened up some questions that still have fans scratching their head — mainly, why Sansa opted to withhold a certain crucial bit of information from a trusted ally.

At the Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel today, actress Sophie Turner finally offered her take on Sansa’s actions — as well as some intriguing speculation about what’s next for the Starks. Major spoilers for the most recent season follow.  Read More »

deadly class tv show

I always hesitate just a little bit when I open a new issue of writer Rick Remender and artist Wes Craig‘s Deadly Class. Not because I don’t want to read it (it’s one of the best comics on the stands at the moment), but because it so emotionally and viscerally harrowing that I have to steel myself. I mean it as a compliment when I say that this series leaves me drained and exhausted and glad that new chapters only arrive once a month.

And now, this ongoing story of ’80s high school angst set in a secret academy that trains young people how to be deadly assassins is being made into a television show.

the tick 1

Since his creation as a comic book store newsletter mascot in 1986, the character of The Tick has never left the hands of creator Ben Edlund. By 1988, Edlund was writing and drawing the adventures of this blue-suited superhero in a self-published comic book. In 1994, he created an animated series based on the character and his ensemble of enemies and allies that ran for three seasons. In 2001, he created a short-lived but beloved live action TV show, with the great Patrick Warburton filling out the suit. Now, The Tick and Edlund are back and heading to Amazon’s pilot season, where subscribers can watch the first episode of new shows that are under consideration for full season pick-ups and cast their votes on which pilots they enjoy the most.

While you won’t be able to sample the show until next month, you can take a first look at Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick, whose new costume is…a little tight in a few key areas.

Queen Sugar trailer

It’s been two years since Selma turned Ava DuVernay into one of the hottest, most in-demand filmmakers working today. But she hasn’t actually put out another movie since then. So what’s she been up to in the past couple of years? Well, among other things, putting together Queen Sugar, a new drama launching on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network this fall.

Based on the novel by Natalie Baszile, Queen Sugar chronicles the story of the three Bordelon siblings, Nova (Rutina Wesley of True Blood), Charlotte (Dawn Lyen-Gardner), and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe). The family is reunited when the patriarch dies, leaving behind an 800-acre sugar cane farm in Louisiana. Also starring are Tina Lifford and Omar J. Dorsey. The premise looks ripe for bittersweet drama, and the first Queen Sugar trailer certainly delivers on that front. Watch it below.   Read More »
