Amazon Prime is turning the Skybound/Image comic book series Invincible by Robert Kirkman into an animated series that will arrive next year. Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) stars as 17-year old Mark Grayson, who just so happens to be the son of the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). As he begins to discover his own superpowers, he learns that his father may not be the clean-cut superhero that he seems to be.
The first Invincible trailer arrived earlier this year along with an impressive roster of voice talent. But not all of the cast members had been revealed, because Brazil’s 2020 CCXP virtual convention revealed a handful of new cast members, including Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption), Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator) and more. Check out the full Invincible voice cast and find out who they’re playing below. Read More »
A young couple (It‘s Bill Skarsgärd and It Follows‘ Maika Monroe) robs a gas station and scores enough cash to start a new life in Florida, but wouldn’t you know it: their getaway car runs out of gas. When they break into a fancy house looking for another vehicle to take them the rest of the way, they end up stumbling on much more than they bargained for in the new thriller Villains.
Check out the latest trailer below, and read some excerpts from our review of the film from this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival.

Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s Villains isn’t their first genre rodeo, and it shows. Their feature debut Body ignited their affair with home invasion horror, Stake Land II sucked some serious sequel blood, and their script for Don’t Kill It burst with howlin’ mad body-possession beats. So what makes Villains their most gratifyingly unstable and deliciously dark midnighter yet? Simplicity in casting: Bill Skarsgård and Maika Monroe. Maybe that’s my specific answer, but I’d watch these two imitate Bunny and Clive (bargain bin versions) until the proverbial cows come home.
Granted, there’s far more to the morally blurry Villains worth pondering than two charismatic and devious burgeoning criminals, but try not falling head-over-heels with Berk and Olsen’s daydreaming amateur fugitives. Read More »
Sicario: Day of the Soldado, the sequel to the anxiety-inducing Sicario, is one of the summer’s dark horse films. No one was asking for a sequel to Sicario, but maybe it’ll turn out to be an entertaining surprise. At the very least, this new Sicario: Day of the Soldado clip indicates the film will have plenty of intense moments. Watch it below.

After setting the mood with a series of cryptic teasers, Fargo Season 2 has finally dropped its first real trailer. Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Donovan, and more show up to tease the new season, which promises the same delightful mix of chilly weather, jarring violence, dry humor, and Minnesota nice that made the first one such a hit.

Clint Eastwood and Warner Bros. decided to skip this fall’s festival circuit with the biopic J. Edgar. While a good many of the other major fall studio releases have been seen and reviewed in the past three weeks via Telluride, Venice and TIFF, we’ve seen nothing from this biography of America’s most powerful lawman, the first director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover.
Now the shroud is off the film as Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Clint Eastwood’s latest directorial effort, in which Leonardo DiCaprio plays the FBI chief and Armie Hammer (The Social Network) appears as his second-in-command and rumored love, Clyde Tolson. See the trailer below. Read More »

Clint Eastwood‘s J. Edgar has been shooting for a while now with Leonardo DiCaprio playing J. Edgar Hoover and Armie Hammer as Clyde Tolson, but the film keeps adding actors to fill out small roles. The last was Stephen Root, and the latest is now Jeffrey Donovan of Burn Notice. The actor said today via Twitter that “I fly to LA Sunday. I have been [cast] as Bobby Kennedy opposite LD in HOOVER. excited. working with Mr Eastwood again. Dreams come true.”
So it’s a mini-Changeling reunion (Eastwood and Donovan, as seen in the still above), and I’m happy to hear that he’ll be playing RFK. The slain Attorney General was both a colleague and to some extent an enemy of Hoover, so there should be a scene or two with fireworks between he and Leonardo DiCaprio. [via Collider]

There’s a great deal of small TV news to round up, so let’s get to it. First off comes the news that Dexter has been given a sixth season renewal. The last time the show was up for renewal was in 2008, when Showtime committed to a fourth and fifth season. E! suggested that a one-season order now is due to cast contract renegotiations that will take place before a seventh season. I never would have expected the show to run quite this long, but the numbers are improving, with this Sunday’s episode grabbing the show’s best ratings ever. So: onward to season six!
