The folks behind the Papillon remake faced the massive challenging of finding an actor worthy of succeeding Steve McQueen in the lead role, and eventually they decided Charlie Hunnam was the guy to do it. Now they’ve moved on to filling the Dustin Hoffman role, and this time they’ve got their eyes on a small-screen standout. Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek is reportedly looking to join the film being directed by Michael Noer (Northwest) from a script by Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners). Read More »

In less than a week, we’ll see Elliot (Rami Malek), Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), Darlene (Carly Chaikin), and the rest of fsociety in season two of Mr. Robot. Created by Sam Esmail–who directed the overlooked film Comet (watch it on Netflix)–the acclaimed series returns for 12 episodes, which are all directed by Esmail. Just in time before Mr. Robot comes back, USA has released a clip from season two.
Below, watch the Mr. Robot season 2 vide clip and a message from fsociety:

Mr. Robot returns to USA in less than two months. The Sam Esmail-created drama was a hit with both audiences and critics, and season two left the door open just wide enough with some mysteries that’ll keep fans coming back for more. Season one of Mr. Robot ended with a major surprise, which, based on the last trailer we saw, we’ll see explored further in the upcoming season of the acclaimed drama.
Below, watch the Mr. Robot season two trailer (spoilers for season one ahead).

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.

Filming on Mr. Robot season two recently commenced. The USA drama just added Craig Robinson, Joey Bada$$, Chris Conroy, and Mimi Gummer to the cast of the upcoming season. Outside of who’s new to the cast, who’s returning and what roles have been beefed up for season two, we know a decent amount about to expect from Mr. Robot season two.
At SXSW this weekend, though, series creator Sam Esmail shed more light on what’s in store for Mr. Robot fans.

F Society hacked the Television Critics Association before the USA Networks panels in a video accusing us of telling viewers what to watch so they don’t have to think for themselves. Their video concluded with a veiled threat that they’re monitoring all of our Wifi usage, so we need better security protocols.
The Mr. Robot panel included creator Sam Esmail and cast members Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin, fresh off their Golden Globe wins for Slater and the series. Esmail was careful about season two spoilers, but big spoilers for season one follow.

USA’s Mr. Robot is one of the year’s most pleasant surprises. While some called the drama derivative, it went on to find its own identity. The show came close to greatness, and it left the door open for more drama and higher stakes. The big brains behind the operation, show creator Sam Esmail, may direct every episode of the sophomore season.

It’s been 26 years since Spike Lee‘s provocative Do the Right Thing debuted, and since Hollywood has been digging deep into the past for sequels, reboots and remakes, it only makes sense that they would revive the racially charged drama.
However, in case you haven’t noticed, Brooklyn has changed a lot since 1989. As Jimmy Kimmel noted during one of his episodes being taped in New York last week, “There used to be muggers right in this neighborhood stealing old ladies’ purses. Now those old lady purses are being worn ironically by hipsters in the area.” And that’s exactly what inspired the trailer for Do the Right Thing 2, starring Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel and more white people.
