Netflix announced last year that it was picking up Black Mirror for a third season, and last month revealed that the new episodes would premiere this fall. But as we say in the age of Instagram and Facebook, pics or it didn’t happen. So showrunner Charlie Brooker has now shared the first Black Mirror season 3 images for us to enjoy. And some of them look surprisingly… retro? The series has thrown some pretty shocking twists at us over the years, but even we did not see a 1980s episode coming.
That’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis up there in those fetching ’80s fashions, and still other photos offer our first look at Bryce Dallas Howard in an episode directed by Joe Wright. Check out the new Black Mirror season 3 images below. Read More »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already the #1 highest grossing film on the domestic box office charts. And with a release in China this weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm are certainly hoping it has the legs to take the top spot on the international box office charts as well. In the meantime, fans are already eagerly anticipating Star Wars: Episode VIII, to continue the story that began in The Force Awakens. Little is known about the film as of now, but a new rumor has named another potential star for the sequel.
While we previously heard that Beyond the Lights and Jupiter Ascending star Gugu Mbatha-Raw had landed a pivotal role in Episode 8, a new rumor pegs Bel Powley, the breakout star of the Sundance selected Diary of a Teenage Girl, as being in the running for the same role. Read More »

The last film we saw with director Peter Landesman‘s name on it was Kill the Messenger, which he scripted. That drama shares a lot in common with Landesman’s sophomore directorial effort, Concussion.
