Go Inside ‘Westworld’ With New Season 2 Video

Westworld season 2 video

HBO’s Westworld has an interesting series of challenges when it comes to creating its sets. There’s a unique mix of western and futuristic elements at play, and now that the upcoming second season is going to open up the world even more, things are about to get a lot more complicated.

In this new Westworld season 2 video, the show’s set decorator explains how she and her team visited an “airport graveyard” to find the pieces they needed to build the futuristic machines that create the android hosts. Plus, there’s some new behind-the-scenes footage that hints at what’s to come when we return to the park.

The Predator 3D

Good news, everyone: we’re getting a new Shane Black movie this year. The filmmaker behind Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3, and The Nice Guys is roaring back with The Predator, a sequel to the stagnant sci-fi franchise about a race of alien hunters perpetually searching for worthy prey. Now we know the action is going to be even more immersive: co-writer Fred Dekker (The Monster Squad) has revealed that the film is getting the 3D treatment.

Juuso Laatio and Jukka Vidgren’s Heavy Trip blast-beats a warrior’s drum for road-trippin’ comedics and heavy metal odysseys. This is a story of companionship bonded by outsider dismissal; a blossoming “Symphonic Post-Apocalyptic Reindeer-Grinding Christ-Abusing Extreme War Pagan Fennoscandian” metal band ready to break from their basement shackles. Laatio and Vidgren respect Nordic brands of face-melting musicianship rooted in mythology and “crappy fantasy novels” as Deathgasm does, except with a more Anchorman approach (animal fights, national crises, etc). To quote Jason Lei Howden’s equally amplified metal adventure, this hilarious endeavor isn’t just brutal – it’s “brutal as fuck!”

Spielberg Netflix

Steven Spielberg has some thoughts on Netflix movies, and they’re not exactly kind. Specifically, Mr. Spielberg feels that Netflix (and movies for streaming services in general) shouldn’t qualify for Academy Awards. In his eyes, movies made for Netflix should qualify as “TV movies.”

Avengers Infinity War james gunn

Avengers: Infinity War is poised to take over the world when it hits theaters in April. And it already has a rave review from one Marvel director.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn ushered his motley crew of galaxy-saving heroes into the MCU, turning them into an uber-popular team that threatened to dethrone the Avengers. So it would be natural that he would feel possessive of them, or least nervous that Star-Lord and co., are in the hands of other directors. But it looks there’s nothing to be worried about.

So…about KryptonI can definitely say I’ve seen it. I know what happened in the premiere episode, but do I care about it? I can’t say I do. At least not yet.

Let’s run down the plot real quick. Krypton is a Superman origin story of sorts, but we’re not really discovering new information about Clark Kent/Kal-El’s origins; we’re discovering his grandpa’s origins. His grandfather, Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) lives with his parents as “unranked” members of the elite, their rank stripped from them due to the so-called “treason” of Seg-El’s own grandfather Val-El (Ian McElhinney). Of course, this was actually his commitment to saving Krypton from otherworldly evils not yet seen. Seg-El finally realizes the importance of his grandfather’s legacy when a strange time-jumper from Earth, the aptly named Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) tells Seg-El that he must take the sunstone key to his grandfather’s Fortress of Solitude and use his grandfather’s research to save Krypton from Brainiac (Blake Ritson). If Seg-El can save his homeworld, then he can save his grandson, Earth’s savior.

On paper, the show sounds ridiculous. Why are we even concerned with Superman’s grandfather’s origin story? But then you watch it…and it’s just as ridiculous.
