lucy in the sky review

Lucy in the Sky seems like it has something to say. It’s on the tip of its tongue: a message about being disconnected with life, about how the terrifying and beautiful vastness of space can make one feel infinitely small, about Natalie Portman‘s bad wig. But despite stunning cosmic visuals and a tour-de-force performance from Portman, Noah Hawley‘s highly anticipated debut feature is as devoid of meaning as the emptiness of space.

Legion Season 3 Featurette

Even though Dark Phoenix was the final installment of the X-Men franchise on the big screen, the legacy of the mutants, as they existed under the 20th Century Fox banner, still has one more breath to take.

The third and final season of the FX series Legion continues to the story of the mentally ill telekinetic mutant David Haller, who just might be the most powerful being on the planet. That’s a problem when he’s also mentally unstable, and the third season will bring his greatest challenge yet: fixing the past. Watch the Legion season 3 featurette to see how that will play out.

Legion season 3 trailer

Legion, creator/showrunner Noah Hawley‘s trippy, hallucinatory exploration of the inner workings of a mutant’s mind, wasn’t made for casual viewing. It’s the type of show that demands your attention, rewards you with things you’ve never seen on TV before, and makes you appreciate the executives at FX who signed the checks for Hawley to make something so bonkers.

A perfect example: it’s a show in which characters ask questions like, “How do you surprise someone who can go back in time and warn himself?” Insert Keanu Reeves “whoa” gif here. Steel your minds for one more season of this mind-bending series and check out the new Legion season 3 trailer below. Read More »

Noah Hawley continues to be a busy man on both the small screen and the big screen. The Fargo and Legion creator is readying for his feature directorial debut with the upcoming Natalie Portman-starring Lucy in the Sky, and his next two projects seem like equally high-concept endeavors.

lucy in the sky trailer

“You got to see the vast celestial everything and it blew your mind, so now nothing makes sense.” Lucy in the Sky questions what happens when astronauts experience something literally out-of-this world, and return to Earth and all its humdrum activities. The feature film from Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, making his directorial debut, looks as cerebral and trippy as that experience would be, anchored by a tremulous performance by Natalie Portman. See the Lucy in the Sky trailer below.

Doctor Doom Movie plot details

Two years after Noah Hawley dropped the bomb that he was developing a Doctor Doom movie for 20th Century Fox, the comic book movie remains in limbo.

The ever-busy Legion showrunner has only accumulated more projects in the interim, while a big question mark remains around Fox’s superhero properties in the face of the impending Disney-Fox deal. But while the film stalls indefinitely, despite a constructive meeting with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Hawley dropped a few more Doctor Doom movie plot details to keep us sated.

Harry Lloyd Playing Professor X on Legion

For two seasons, the FX series Legion has focused on David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. In the comics, that’s mostly because he’s the son of Professor Charles Xavier, something that has only been hinted at on the show. We haven’t seen the telepathic mutant appear on the X-Men series yet, but that will change with the show’s third and final season.

Legion has landed Harry Lloyd as Professor X, though the extent of the character’s involvement in the end of the series has yet to be revealed. Lloyd may best be known for his role on Game of Thrones as Viserys Targaryen, the corrupt, doomed brother of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen. Read More »
