The third and final season of The Leftovers is only four months away. While season one of co-creator Damon Lindelof‘s drama polarized viewers, season two received much more acclaim, and rightfully so. The second chapter of the Tom Perrota adaptation took the series to trippier, funnier, and more dramatic places. Season two concluded on an incredibly cathartic note, but there’s more than likely plenty of struggles left ahead for the Garveys and the Murphys.
Below, learn more The Leftovers season three.

All the individual Defenders like to talk a big game about working alone, but in truth each of them is surrounded by friends and allies and mentors. Over the past couple of days we’ve seen several of those pals added to the supporting lineup of The Defenders, and today we’ve got three more to add to the list.
Marvel and Netflix have officially announced that Jessica Jones‘ Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) and Daredevil‘s Stick (Scott Glenn) will return for The Defenders — along with the one character who unites all four standalone superheroes, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). Read More »
With season two of HBO’s The Leftovers, showrunner Damon Lindelof and all involved were telling a story about geography. The show picked up and moved to Jarden, Texas, for thematic reasons, and, by moving to Australia, season three is pulling a similar move. In December, it was announced season three is the final season of The Leftovers, which, Lindelof says, will conclude with an ending they’ve structured the entire upcoming chapter around.

Two short weeks remain until Marvel comes to Netflix. Daredevil will hit the streaming service at 12:01 a.m. PST on Friday April 10 and the race will begin to see how the Man Without Fear is going to be handled in this new format.
With the countdown nearing its end, Netflix has begun to promote the show more aggressively, including this brand new TV spot. It features a lot of footage we haven’t seen yet, the most intriguing of which is Scott Glenn as Stick, the man who trains Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) to fight. Check out the new Scott Glenn Daredevil footage below. Read More »
If you need someone to play the wise old guy who teaches an up and coming hero how to kick ass, there’s good reason to turn to Scott Glenn. The producers of Marvel’s Daredevil have done so, and Glenn is now playing Stick, the mentor of Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) as he makes the transition to Daredevil. Because we don’t know much about the upcoming show at this point there’s little more to the report than that, but all the Scott Glenn Daredevil info we have is below. Read More »
James Franco directed an adaption of the Cormac McCarthy novel Child of God, which opens in some theaters on August 1. But Franco also wanted to adapt McCarthy’s novel Blood Meridian, and even Franco admits the book seems like an “un-filmable” novel. That didn’t stop him from trying, and a few years ago Franco shot a test reel for the project. This 25-minute reel features characters from the novel that fans will very much recognize. Notably, the Judge appears, played by Mark Pellegrino. The Kid is played by Dave Franco, and Scott Glen and Luke Perry show up, too, as Tobin and Glanton.
This is very much a test reel — a rough edit, and lacking any polished sound mix — but it’s interesting to see Franco explore this particular sequence at length. If this was ever made as a traditional feature, this whole sequence would likely be condensed in a significant fashion. Additionally, the cast here may not have ended up in the feature. Note to anyone unfamiliar with Blood Meridian: this is not safe for work. Read More »
Here’s the Japanese teaser trailer for The Bourne Legacy, in which previous Bourne series writer Tony Gilroy directs Jeremy Renner in a film that expands the fictional world of the Bourne films. Renner isn’t the successor to Matt Damon exactly; rather, he’s a parallel character in the same world. Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz are featured in addition to Renner.
While there isn’t too much new footage here, there is just enough to be worth a look, especially as we were pretty impressed with the US teaser. Read More »

When Universal gave Tony Gilroy a mandate to make a new Bourne film that might establish a series parallel to the existing trilogy starring Matt Damon, he pledged a story that would take place in the same world and expand upon some background elements seen in the three Damon films.
To that effect he has been recruiting actors who aren’t Matt Damon but who did play important roles in the existing trilogy. Not long ago he pulled in Joan Allen and Albert Finney to reprise their roles, and now he’s got Scott Glenn back in the fold as well. The actor will once again play CIA director Ezra Kramer in The Bourne Legacy. But not until after he plays a part in Precious director Lee Daniels‘ new film The Paperboy. Read More »
