batgirl actress

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

The Whole Truth trailer

Keanu Reeves has been killing it lately in a variety of offbeat projects, from John Wick to The Neon Demon. He even acquitted himself quite nicely in The Bad Batch, which is more than we can say for either of that film’s actual leads. Now this fall he’ll return to more straightforwardly dramatic fare with The Whole Truth, the new legal thriller from Frozen River director Courtney Hunt.

Written by Nicholas Kazan, The Whole Truth centers on a shocking murder trial. A teenage boy (Gabriel Basso) has been charged with murdering his father (Jim Belushi), and his mother (Renée Zellweger) hires defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Reeves) to defend her. The case seems straightforward at first. The boy has confessed to the crime, and all physical evidence seems to back him up. But as the trial moves forward, Richard’s colleague (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) begins to suspect that not all is as it appears. Watch The Whole Truth trailer below.  Read More »

Black Mirror Season 3 Review

It’s been nearly two years since the last episode of Black MirrorCharlie Brooker‘s tech dystopia anthology series, and over three years since the last proper full season aired. Naturally, then, news that Netflix had commissioned 12 more episodes was met with a combination of excitement and trepidation.

On the one hand, Black Mirror is second to none when it comes to chronicling the way humanity and technology intersect in 2016. On the other, we’ve seen tons of shows renewed after extended hiatuses, only to return as shells of their former selves. Could the third season of Black Mirror live up to the greatness of the first two? Based on the two episodes that screened at TIFF, “San Junipero” and “Nosedive,” the answer seems to be yes.  Read More »

In 2015, Jonathan Perera‘s script for Miss Sloane made the 2015 Blacklist (a list of the best-unproduced screenplays).
