Keanu Reeves signed on to star in the sci-fi thriller Replicas back in 2014. That was…*checks calendar*…four years ago, and the movie still hasn’t come out yet. Jeffrey Nachmanoff (Traitor) took over the director’s chair from original director Tanya Wexler (Hysteria), so that may have been part of the reason for the delay. The film finally debuted its first trailer last October with the promise that it would be released sometime in 2018, but things have been quiet ever since.
Now a new trailer has arrived – but weirdly, it’s being billed as an “official teaser” that’s almost 45 seconds shorter than the full trailer that dropped last year. What’s going on with this movie? Read More »

Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television, opened the Iron Fist season 2 panel at San Diego Comic-Con International with carefully crafted phrasing: “How do we top the martial arts from Season 1 in Season 2?” The question politely encapsulates a major criticism that many had with the first season of Iron Fist: the fighting (and the story) sucked.
Marvel and Netflix appear to have taken that criticism to heart. The series has benefited from a new showrunner, Raven Metzner, as well as the addition of Clayton Barber, a fight coordinator whose credits include Creed and Black Panther. In addition to the new behind-the-scenes players, the panel also included Finn Jones (Danny Rand), Jessica Henwick (Colleen Wing), Simone Missick (Misty Knight) and, as a surprise late addition to the event, Alice Eve, who is playing (wait for it…) Typhoid Mary.
The group, steered by Jeph’s bombastic interview style, provided an entertaining show. But the real stars of the panel were the exclusive clips Loeb shared of the season to come. Here is a run-down of the Iron Fist season 2 Comic-Con footage, with each clip working hard to convince Marvel fans to give Iron Fist another chance. Read More »
In case you forgot, everyone’s least-favorite Defender is getting a second season! Iron Fist season 2 is currently in pre-production, and Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Alice Eve has just joined the cast. There are no details on Eve’s role yet, but it’s likely at one point she’ll come in contact with Danny Rand and mutter “Ugh, you’re the worst” under her breath.

It’s been nearly two years since the last episode of Black Mirror, Charlie 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.

Black Mirror may be the most addictive and watchable exercise in misery ever devised. Creator Charlie Brooker‘s twisted science fiction anthology series received acclaim in its native England, but it didn’t become a full-blown phenomenon until its first two seasons arrived on Netflix last year. Naturally, the streaming giant promptly picked the show up, ordering a third season consisting of 12 brand new episodes.
While Netflix is keeping the details of the new season under lock and key, we now know that at least one of the episodes will be a bit of a star-studded affair. Director Joe Wright has signed on to helm an episode and he’s bringing Bryce Dallas Howard and Alice Eve with him.

Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino have both been acting steadily since the 1960s, starring in some of the most iconic films of all time and winning an Oscar each along the way. But somehow, they’ve never actually shared the screen until Misconduct.

Hopkins is a corrupt pharmaceutical executive, while Pacino is a senior partner at a high-profile firm. Josh Duhamel is the lawyer who gets caught in the middle, and finds himself trapped in a web of lies and intrigue. Watch the first Misconduct trailer after the jump. Read More »
