Bloom stars in the thriller as a demolitionist named Malky, who finds himself face to face with the man he holds responsible for a childhood trauma. Watch the Retaliation trailer below.

In a time when the casts of cult TV shows and beloved movies are getting together virtually left and right, there is still only one Zoom reunion to rule them all and in the darkness bind them — or at least, provide us a small reprieve as the real world gets more distressing by the minute. Josh Gad has been uniting casts of Back to the Future, Splash, and The Goonies, with his Reunited Apart web series, but his latest one is the most epic reunion yet.
The cast of The Lord of the Rings got the Fellowship back together over Zoom to swap filming stories and show off the matching tattoos they got together. Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Ian McKellen, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, and Orlando Bloom all appeared and were soon joined by “many surprise” guests in the biggest Zoom reunion that Gad has held thus far. You can watch the entire hour-long The Lord of The Rings reunion below.

Carnival Row has had a long road to Amazon. The project is what opened doors for its creator, Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim), who for a long time thought his original fantasy script would never get made. Things heated up when director Guillermo del Toro and Hugh Jackmanwere attached to make it, but for one reason or another, the script got never produced as a movie. But now, years after Beacham wrote the original script for fun in film school, it’s now an epic fantasy series starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevgine.
“The world here, brought to life through the characters we spend time with, is a rich one, and one that will draw viewers in and have them eagerly waiting for the next season,” Vanessa Armstrong wrote in her review for the site. A second season is already in the making, which Beacham told us a little about after he explained some of his rules for world-building.

Carnival Row has had a long history, languishing in development purgatory before finding a home as an eight-episode fantasy-noir series premiering on Amazon Prime Video next month.
“I wrote this script in film school 17 years ago,” show creator and executive producer Travis Beacham explained at San Diego Comic-Con’s Carnival Row panel on Friday. “I did it as a feature film and I did it without a mind to ever sell it; it was just a sandbox where I could play. Ironically, it was the script that first sold, and it was the script that started my career…as beloved as it was, it languished for awhile until about four or five years ago when Legendary picked it up and suggested doing it as a TV series. The prospect of that was extremely exciting — in writing the world I had imagined so much backstory, and so much stuff around the corners and around the streets. If I had been writing it for the first time now, I would never had even written it as a film.”

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

James Marsden looks right at home as an on-air sports journalist in the 1980s. With the big framed glasses and colorful attire, the actor, who typically shines in comedies, is covering the 1982 Tour De Pharmacy. A dangerous year in cycling, with everybody doping. In HBO’s new sports mockumentary, Andy Samberg, John Cena, Orlando Bloom, and a long list of other familiar faces play athletes competing in the 1982 race – which looks every bit as ridiculous and as fun as 7 Days in Hell.
Below, watch the Tour De Pharmacy trailer.

Back in 2015, HBO debuted a sports mockumentary called 7 Days in Hell that chronicled fictional tennis players Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) and Charles Poole (Kit Harington) who played a match to end all tennis matches: a seven-day, five-set marathon that took everything out of them. It was a hilarious 45-minute foray into tennis presented in the style of HBO Sports documentaries, and now the world of competitive cycling is getting the same treatment.
Tour De Pharmacy focuses on five cyclists in 1982 as they dealt with the controversy of nearly every athlete doping in order to get an edge on competition. The cast includes Andy Samberg, John Cena, Freddie Highmore, Daveed Diggs, Orlando Bloom and they somehow got Lance Armstrong to appear and even poke fun at his own relationship with doping.
