Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Photos

Not too long ago, a new trailer for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events introduced us to Neil Patrick Harris playing the dastardly Count Olaf, desperate to get his hands on the inheritance left to the orphaned Baudelaire children. Now some new photos give us our first look at some characters we haven’t seen yet, including the second role played by Neil Patrick Harris.

The new A Series of Unfortunate Events photos reveal Joan Cusack as Justice Strauss and Catherine O’Hara as Dr. Georgina Orwell, and since these photos are being released now, there’s a good chance we’ll see them in the new trailer for the Netflix series that will hit the web on Thursday. In addition, we have our first look at Count Olaf dressed up as Captain Sham, a ruse of a character used to manipulate others. Check out the new photos after the jump. Read More »

westworld episode 8 preview

The official announcement that Westworld season 2 is on the way has been grabbing all of the entertainment news headlines, but we still have three episodes left in the show’s first season…which means they only have three hours left to solve as many mysteries as possible while asking three new questions for each answer. So while we can vaguely ponder the long-term future of the show, we should probably focus our energy on “Trace Decay,” the upcoming eighth episode of season one that has unveiled a new trailer.

Game of Thrones prequel

Picture David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the showrunners on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Picture them working on season 7. Picture the lines around their tired eyes, the grey invading the beards they haven’t had time to shave. Picture them hunched over a monitor or a schedule or the coffee that offers them respite during their busy days on set and picture them trying to solve whatever new issue has invaded their always ambitious, globe-trotting production. Now picture an HBO executive waltzing over them, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, to ask them to devote a few precious seconds to talking about a Game of Thrones prequel series. Picture Benioff and Weiss’ eyes rolling back into their heads and vampire fangs, generated by pure stress, spontaneously bursting forth from their gums. Picture that HBO executive running for his life.

Now picture that HBO exec telling the press that they definitely aren’t ruling out that Game of Thrones prequel! Not at all! Everyone is still talking about it! For real!

Westworld Episode 7 Spoiler Review

And with a huge plot twist and the first death that cannot be quickly fixed in a lab, Westworld has taken things to the next level. As usual, I have ten questions, some literal and some just acting as an excuse to talk about certain aspects of the series. Let’s begin.

david lowery talks the old man and the gun

The Old Man and the Gun is David Lowery‘s next project. The Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and Pete’s Dragon director is reuniting with Casey Affleck and Robert Redford for the movie, which is a remarkable true story about a man who spent much of his life in and out of jail and robbing banks, even when he was nearly 80 years old. Redford is playing that man, Forrest Tucker, in a film Lowery calls a tribute to Redford.

Below, the writer-director discusses his next collaboration with the actor.

valerian trailer

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets‘ presentation at San Diego Comic-Con went great. Hall H may not have been full and many in attendance weren’t familiar with the property — a French comic book series written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières — but the concept art and clips raised our expectations for Luc Besson‘s sci-fi adventure. The Fifth Element director is possibly cooking up something big, weird, and exuberant, and you can now get a taste of what he’s been dreaming about making for years.

Below, watch the first Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets trailer.

Trainspotting TV series

Just last week we saw an encouraging trailer for Danny Boyle‘s T2: Trainspotting. As some of you may recall, Boyle spent many years talking about the sequel. Plenty of the 1996 film’s fans were skeptical it would ever happen, but in now less than three months, we’ll see the return of Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Johnny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). According to the creator of this gang, author Irvine Welsh, Boyle’s sequel might not be the last time we see them, either.

Below, learn more about a possible Trainspotting TV series.

ghost in the shell trailer

I have no dog in the race when it comes to Ghost in the Shell, Rupert Sanders‘ upcoming adaptation of the massively popular Japanese science fiction franchise. I have not read the original manga and I haven’t seen the the animated films or television shows based on it. Honestly, my knowledge of the whole thing practically begins and ends with “female cyborg police officer goes on adventures throughout future Tokyo.” I will say this much, though: the latest snippet of footage is stylish enough to grab my attention and get me intrigued for the first trailer arriving this Sunday.
