Francis Lawrence

One of Apple TV’s first major shows, See, couldn’t have been more in director and executive producer Francis Lawrence‘s wheelhouse. The director behind The Hunger Games sequels, I Am Legend, and Constantine is no stranger to expansive fantastical worlds. Created by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), See presents a future where sight is a thing of the past. No one can see, which presents the visual challenges Lawrence relishes as a director.

It’s not the first time Lawrence has defined the aesthetic and tone of a show as a filmmaker. He directed three episodes of NBC’s Kings, which was a short-lived but entertaining show that probably would’ve resonated more today, and the premiere of Tim Kring‘s Touch. All high-concept projects. Recently, we talked to Lawrence about the type of material that appeals to him, including See, as well as growing as a director and his most-watched work, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video.

Chance the Rapper Hosted Saturday Night Live

Last night brought the Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live, and thanks to host Chance the Rapper, the energy was high. Unfortunately (or fortunately in some cases), the number of technical mistakes, gaffes, and line flubs were also high with almost every single live sketch having some kind of error. Since the show is live, there are usually a couple missteps here and there, but this show was riddled with them. Thankfully, they didn’t always make the sketch worse. In fact, in a couple cases, they helped make the sketch much better than it otherwise might have been. It was kind of weird how well it all worked.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches from the Chance the Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

See trailer

We caught a brief glimpse of footage from See, the upcoming AppleTV+ series from Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders) which stars Jason Momoa (Aquaman), during the company’s sizzle reel earlier this year. But today, Apple CEO Tim Cook debuted the first full trailer for the series, and this thing looks ambitious as hell. Check it out below. Read More »

Snyder Cut jason momoa

Over the past two years, something has become undeniably clear: director Zack Snyder‘s “Snyder Cut” of Justice League actually does exist. It’s not a finished version of the movie that could have been released in theaters, and whether the DC fans who have been loudly clamoring for it will ever get to see it themselves remains an open question. But a Snyder version of the movie does exist, and Aquaman star Jason Momoa is the latest to see it – and to give it a one-word review.

dune sequel

There’s a lot of sandy ground to cover with Dune, and one movie might not cut it. Director Denis Villeneuve‘s star-studded Dune adaptation is currently filming, but will there be more to come? Villeneuve has hinted in the past that he’d like to make more than one film to bring Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic to life, and as of now, that seems to be the plan. In a new interview, Legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirms that at least one Dune sequel is being planned – although that could change.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Dune cast Jason Momoa

This is starting to get ridiculous. Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune cast seems to grow every single day, and every single announcement features another fine looking specimen. The latest: Jason Momoa, who recently rode box office waves in Aquaman. Momoa is in talks to take on the role of Duncan Idaho, a “fierce swordsmaster.” Duncan Idaho doesn’t exactly sound like a futuristic name, but let’s just go with it anyway.
