legion season 1 recap

How do you recap a TV show as surreal and strange as Legion? Even FX’s Legion season 1 recap questions its own reality. And subsequently fails to answer any of those questions.

The mind-bending X-Men series returns for its second season in a month, but even fans who have been watching it since the beginning would have trouble describing what it’s about. The premise is simple enough, to be sure: David Haller (Dan Stevens), a mutant who believed he had schizophrenia, is spirited off to a facility for people like him. But from there, that’s where things get weird.

Justice League Dark Concept Art

While the union of the Justice League only just happened on the big screen for the first time last month, their darker, fantasy counterparts from Justice League Dark have been in development for years. The project has gone through several directors, including Guillermo del Toro a little while back and most recently Edge of Tomorrow helmer Doug Liman, but it’s currently without a director as a new script from Housebound scribe Gerard Johnstone is being written right now. However, as we wait to see what happens with the DC Comics property, we can imagine what it might have been like if another filmmaker ended up getting hired for the job.

Joseph Kahn is best known for directing music videos for the likes of Taylor Swift, Eminem, Katy Perry and Britney Spears. More recently he directed the acclaimed rap battle indie film Bodied, but at one point, Kahn was in the running to director Justice League Dark, and he recently revealed some of the concept art that was part of his pitch.

marshall trailer

Chadwick Boseman can’t seem to get enough of playing prolific black historical figures in biopics.

After putting on his dancing shoes as James Brown in Get On Up, Boseman’s latest turn is as the first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in the simply titled Marshall, when he was just a strapping young lawyer who can punch guys. It’s nice to see that the Black Panther training is paying off.

Dan Stevens Shot ‘Kill Switch’ in Four Days

Kill Switch

Dan Stevens is having a phenomenal year. He starred in the wildly creative and imaginative FX series, Legion, which got picked up for a second season. He also co-starred in one of the best films of the year so far, Colossal, and was loved by millions in Beauty & the Beast, a movie that made over a billion dollars. He also starred in another film, Kill Switch, which came out earlier this year. He only worked on it for four days, despite being the star.

Below, learn how he did it.

Beauty and the Beast Home Video

Back before Disney’s live-action remake of their 1992 animated adaptation Beauty and the Beast hit theaters, Honest Trailers delivered a mockery of the contemporary classic musical from the House of Mouse. But now that the updated version of Beauty and the Beast is available on home video, Honest Trailers has returned to give Emma Watson and Dan Stevens a hard time.

Film sets are ridiculous places. You have dozens (and depending on the day, possibly hundreds) of crew members gathered around a set while actors put on costumes and play pretend. Green screens must be ignored – they will look like an actual background when all is said and done. That CGI monster will be added in post – for now, just pretend to to run away from it. The set only extends as far as the frame – tilt the camera a half inch and you’ll see craft services.

Making any movie is a weird and arduous process, but making a big-budget fantasy movie is even weirder and more arduous. And in the case of Beauty and the Beast, it meant Dan Stevens having to wear the most ridiculous motion capture suit imaginable…and Emma Watson having to look him in the face and not giggle. A new featurette from the upcoming home video release of the film offers a peek at this process and it’s an amusing reminder that all movies look completely ludicrous until they’re done.

Kill Switch Dan Stevens

Cinephiles and Downton Abbey fans already knew Dan Stevens‘ name before this year, but the 34-year-old actor has become downright inescapable in recent months, with roles in Beauty and the Beast, the FX series Legion, and Nacho Vigalondo’s indie film Colossal.

But it looks like his hot streak might hit a bit of a speed bump with Kill Switch, a futuristic new sci-fi thriller that’s based on a short film that went viral a few years ago. Check out the Kill Switch trailer below.

Apostle synopsis

Director Gareth Evans earned a lifetime of support from me with his impressive martial arts film Merantau and his astounding work on The Raid movies, so it’s safe to say I’m very much looking forward to seeing what he does with his newest film, Apostle. The fact that he’s cast Dan Stevens (Legion) in the lead role and has people like Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) and Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) in supporting parts is just icing on the cake.

This morning, Evans released the first official image from the movie – which has a bit of a There Will Be Blood vibe to it – along with the official synopsis, both of which you can find below.
