Brigands of Rattlecreek

Years before writer S. Craig Zahler made his directorial debut with his ultra-violent western Bone Tomahawk, he sold a screenplay for a different ultra-violent western called The Brigands of Rattleborge, which had Oldboy director Park Chan-wook lined up to direct way back in 2012.

Despite the script being on The Black List in 2006, the project was stuck in development hell for years, but now Amazon has picked it up with a slightly-altered name: The Brigands of Rattlecreek. Park is back in the director’s chair, and Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey is being eyed for one of the lead roles. Learn more below. Read More »

Esmail will not be directing the second season, marking the second big change to the show – original star Julia Roberts isn’t returning, either. As a big fan of the first season, all of this makes me a little nervous. More on Homecoming season 2 below.

Only Lord of the Rings could get their fans whipped into a frenzy over a map. But Amazon knows this, and cleverly went with an advent calendar-style release of a map of Middle-earth to reveal…the setting.

The Lord of the Rings series setting, which Amazon confirmed to be the Second Age of Middle-earth, may only be vaguely interesting for casual fans, but for mega-fans, just seeing the word “Numenor” is enough to launch a thousand excited tweets. (Really, just check out the replies on the Lord of the Rings Twitter.) Let’s dive into the significance of the Second Age setting and find out what the hell Numenor actually is.
