HBO’s hit comedy series Silicon Valley is coming to an end this year with the sixth season. Not only is this the final season, but it’s also a bit of a shorter season with only seven episodes wrapping up the exploits of the tech company Pied Piper and the computer geniuses who founded it. Now the first Silicon Valley season 6 trailer has arrived, and it prominently features Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) testifying in front of the US Congress about the security of user data. And not unlike the real world instance of Mark Zuckerberg doing the same thing, it’s very cringeworthy. Read More »

HBO’s tech comedy series Silicon Valley was already renewed for a sixth season back in April this year. However, the show was renewed alongside the freshman comedy series Barry, and both shows are executive produced by Alec Berg. That seems to have created a bit of a scheduling challenge, because now production on the Silicon Valley season 6 is being delayed until summer 2019 in order to allow Berg to finish up his work on the second season of Barry first. But there might be more to this story behind the scenes. Read More »
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 »
