twin peaks revival cast

Showtime‘s revival of Twin Peaks has been filming under an impenetrable veil of secrecy. Anyone who knows what’s going on with it isn’t talking and for all we know, those who came close to getting chatty were met with a mysterious “accident.” Even all of the casting news that has been steadily arriving over the past year has been met with total silence. Beyond original series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost writing the new season and Lynch directing every episode, almost nothing has been confirmed. Even the first trailer didn’t tell us anything.

And now production on the new batch of episodes has wrapped and Showtime has unleashed the full cast list…and it is a doozy. There are 217 names on this list, a combination of original Twin Peaks cast members and newcomers, movie stars and character actors, people who feel like they’d fit perfectly into Lynch and Frost’s crazy world and people who feel like they won’t work at all (which means they’re probably perfect for it).

Mr Robot on Amazon

Like many of you, I was sucked into Mr. Robot, a television show which I’ve described as Hackers meets Fight Club, by way of The Social Network. It was surprising that a show of this quality could be a USA Network original series (and that’s not a slam from someone who doesn’t know that the channel has some good shows — I watch Suits). And to say that season one of Mr. Robot left us with more questions than answers is an understatement. USA Network has released the first teaser trailer for the second season, which plays up many of these questions but mainly: what did Elliot hope to accomplish, and what happened during Elliot’s blackout? Watch the Mr. Robot Season 2 Teaser Trailer now embedded after the jump.

the infiltrator trailer

Over the course five increasingly intense seasons of Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White built a drug empire that damaged and destroyed the lives of countless characters. Perhaps Cranston believes in establishing some kind of cinematic karmic balance, because his new movie is all about him attempting to take down a drug empire. The Infiltrator tells the true story of DEA agent Bob Mazur, who went undercover in Pablo Escobar’s network of drug suppliers and corrupt bankers and ended up pulling off one of the largest drug busts in history. The new trailer for the film has the rest of the necessary details.

J.J. Abrams and Daisy Ridley first joined forces to explore a certain galaxy far, far way, but now they’re looking to extend their relationship beyond the Star Wars universe. The pair are reuniting on Kolma, a fantasy thriller to be produced by Abrams’ Bad Robot.

After the massive success of 50 Shades of Grey, director Sam Taylor-Johnson decided against returning for the sequels. Since the adaptation opened in theaters, she hasn’t lined up many film projects for herself. In December, Taylor-Johnson was briefly attached to direct Chappaquiddick, but two months later, she dropped out of the film to work on Netflix’s Gypsy, a series that has just landed its lead, Naomi Watts (Demolition).

When the Bough Breaks

Screen Gems likes being in the Morris Chestnut business. Back in 2014, the actor signed a three-picture deal with Sony’s Screen Gems. Their last picture headlined by Chestnut, The Perfect Guy, made close to $60 million at the box office, which isn’t too shabby for a movie that cost $12 million. Understandably, the studio wants this collaboration to keep going. Their newest thriller, When the Bough Breaks, is both executive produced by and stars Chestnut.

Steve Alten‘s Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror was first published in 1997 and the film adaptation has been in development for almost as long. Every few years, someone commits to a film adaptation of this tale of Man versus Giant Prehistoric Killer Shark and every few years, the whole thing falls apart. Now, nearly twenty years after the initial plans to make this movie, a new batch of names have become associated with the project.
