Eggsy is Back in First Trailer for ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Sequel

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

«I hope you’re ready for what comes next…» 20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, once again directed by Matthew Vaughn, bringing back Taron Egerton as the British superspy known as «Eggsy». We’ve been waiting for this, and it’s finally here and it actually looks fun. Colin Firth also returns, with Mark Strong as Merlin, and a cast featuring Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Vinnie Jones, as well as Hanna Alström, and Sophie Cookson. This seems to be a riff on America, as the Kingsman guys end up working with an American agency. I’m digging all the action so far, and I’m wondering if this could be a surprise hit. ›››

Stephen Colbert brings back ‘Stephen Colbert’ to send off Bill O’Reilly

TwitterFacebook

On Wednesday night, two Stephen Colberts said their goodbyes to disgraced conservative talking head Bill O’Reilly: the Stephen Colbert who currently hosts the Late Show, and the «Stephen Colbert» (largely based on O’Reilly) who used to host The Colbert Report.

The goodbyes were pretty different. Here’s a hint: one Colbert called O’Reilly «Papa Bear» and the other called him a «self-righteous landfill of angry garbage.»

The latter really rolls of the tongue, doesn’t it? Read more…

Activism Fights Back in Trailer for ‘Citizen Jane: Battle for the City’ Doc

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City Doc Trailer

«She believed the city is not about buildings, the city is about people.» Need a good doc to rile you up and inspire you to get out there and fight back? Try this one. Sundance Selects has debuted a trailer for a documentary titled Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, profiling the activism work of Jane Jacobs. Jacobs fought to save historic New York City during the ruthless redevelopment era of urban planner Robert Moses in the 1960s. The doc focuses on construction kingpin Robert Moses’ plan to raze lower Manhattan to make way for a highway. This seems like the perfect doc for the times, showing how passionate activism can actually make a difference. This also reminds me of another great battle of wits doc — Best of Enemies, which I also highly recommend seeing. Citizen Jane opens in NYC later this week, then LA next week. Take a look. ›››

Australia’s back in the satellite game with a teeny tiny new launch

TwitterFacebook

The first Australian-built satellites to be launched in 15 years are set to take off this week from Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Unlike the enormous satellites Australia uses for telecommunications, each of these new satellites (or cubesats) is the size of a loaf of bread. But although small, they may provide a key step in enabling Australia’s entry into the global satellite market.

Three types of cubesats are the Australian contribution to the international QB50 mission, in which 36 satellites from different institutions around the world will carry instruments provided by the Von Karman Institute (VKI) to examine the lower thermosphere. This is a very interesting part of the atmosphere for several reasons, such as the way it disturbs GPS measurements. Read more…

Supergirl: Calista Flockhart to Return as Cat Grant for the End of Season 2

Calista Flockhart is back as Cat Grant for the end of Supergirl season 2

Calista Flockhart (Brothers & SistersAlly McBeal) will return as Cat Grant for the final episodes of Supergirl season 2, according to TVLine. This news comes after this morning’s info about Tyler Hoechlin returning as Superman in the season finale of The CW show.

There is no information about why Cat is back at CatCo, or even if that’s where she’ll be. As you know, Cat Grant is the head of CatCo, the huge media conglomerate in the DCTV universe. Kara Danvers, a.k.a. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is currently employed as a reporter there, after working as Cat Grant’s assistant in season 1. Flockhart appeared in the first two episodes of Supergirl season 2, then left to pursue other interests. She left James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) in charge in the meantime. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg stated back in October that he hoped Flockhart would return, though it was a matter of scheduling.

Supergirl is still on hiatus but will return April 24 with an all-new episode. Titled “Ace Reporter,” the episode is officially described as follows:

“Lena’s (guest star Katie McGarth) ex-boyfriend, Jack Spheer (guest star Rahul Kohli), comes to National City to unveil his big breakthrough in nano-technology, which has the potential to eradicate all diseases. Lena asks Kara to attend Jack’s conference with her for support. When Kara sees Snapper (guest Star Ian Gomez) in attendance she’s inspired to tap back into her reporter skills and questions Jack on his discovery, which ultimately leads to a bigger investigation that puts everyone in danger.”

‘Sense8’ Season 2 Trailer: Netflix’s Strange Science Fiction Series is Back

sense8 season 2 trailer

I’m a huge fan of just about everything Lana and Lilly Wachowski have touched (yes, even the Matrix sequels), but I never got around to watching Sense8, the science fiction series they co-created with J. Michael Straczynski for Netflix. However, the arrival of the trailer for the second season may be the kick in the butt I need to get around to this one. This show looks goofy and thoughtful and action-packed and honest and silly and visually dynamic…well, it looks in line with past work by both the Wachowskis and Straczynski.

The trailer for the 10-epsode second season comes with a release date – the new batch of episodes will be available to stream on May 5, 2017. However, the first episodes of the season will premiere at the Series Mania festival in Paris later this month before screening at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre a few days later. So we’ll be hearing some early buzz soon enough.

I remember the first season of Sense8 dividing people all over the internet, with passionate fans sticking up for it in the face of critics who couldn’t stop rolling their eyes in its general direction. With the new season arriving in under a month, I suppose it’s time for me to get around to having an opinion on this one.

Here’s the official synopsis:

From renowned creative geniuses Lana Wachowski, Grant Hill (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas) and J. Michael Straczynski (Clint Eastwood’s Changeling, World War Z), Sense8 is centered around eight characters, from different parts of the world, who experience a violent vision, and soon find themselves mentally connected by the experience.  They become connected, able to see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, with access to each other’s deepest secrets. Not only must the eight adapt to this new ability and to each other, they must figure out why their lives are now in jeopardy. In Season 2, dark forces continue to track the cluster of eight connected characters. The sensates will learn more about BPO, the secret organization searching for their cluster and others like them, and will work to protect themselves from this organization that is out to hunt and kill them.

The Sense8 cast includes Doona Bae, Jamie Clayton, Tina Desai, Tuppence Middleton, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Brian J. Smith, Terrence Mann, Naveen Andrews, and Daryl Hannah. If you’re like me and have been planning to catch up with the the first season at some point, this may be the best window to do so.

‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Will Use Existing Footage of Carrie Fisher to Bring Back General Leia

Carrie Fisher Returning for Star Wars Episode 9

Last year, Hollywood was hit hard with the death of Carrie Fisher, leaving Star Wars fans mourning for the loss of Princess Leia. After grief had passed, many wondered how the saga would proceed without Carrie Fisher able to return to the franchise. The actress had already completed her shooting for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but what would happen to Leia without Carrie Fisher around to give her a proper send-off?

Lucasfilm and Disney have already confirmed that visual effects will not be used to bring Carrie Fisher to life on the big screen again, even though they recently achieved the feat of bringing Peter Cushing back as Grand Moff Tarkin in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Instead, it turns out we’ll see Carrie Fisher returning for Star Wars Episode 9 thanks to existing footage of the actress.

The latest update on how the Star Wars saga will handle the passing of Carrie Fisher’s comes from the actress’ brother Todd Fisher. He spoke with The New York Daily News recently and revealed that he and Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd (who also has a small supporting role in the new Star Wars movies), granted Disney and Lucasfilm permission to use existing footage that was shot for The Last Jedi, as well as The Force Awakens, in order to allow General Leia to appear in Star Wars Episode 9. Here’s what he had to say:

“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t. She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue… To me, Star Wars is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can’t mess with it.”

The biggest question is what will happen to General Leia in order for us to say farewell to the character in the Star Wars saga? We know that Star Wars: The Last Jedi hasn’t been altered to account for the passing of Carrie Fisher, but since we don’t know what happens with her character in that movie, it’s tough to predict how we might see her appear in Star Wars Episode 9.

Though visual effects won’t be employed to create new “footage” of Carrie Fisher in the same way that Peter Cushing was brought back to life for Rogue One, the footage from The Last Jedi will need to be repurposed for use in Episode 9. So it’s likely visual effects may be used to digitally place General Leia in different scenes, or to have a stand-in appear and have dialogue from previously shot footage come from off-screen. It all depends on what kind of scenes we’re talking about. Hopefully the final moments fans get to spend with General Leia will be satisfying.
