Sean Penn is set to star in a new series at Hulu called The First. This is a sci-fi space exploration series that comes from House of Cards creator, Beau Willimon. Penn has been a guest on several series over the years, but this will be the first series that he actually stars in. The actor seems very picky with the projects he takes on so this one must be good.
The First is set in the near future and explores the first human mission to Mars and interplanetary colonization. The eight-episode drama focuses not only on the astronauts, but also on their families and loved ones, as well as the ground team on Earth.
This certainly sounds like an interesting story. No details were revealed about the role Penn would play in the series. Willimon, who will write and executive produce the series, had this to say in a statement:
"I have such deep admiration for Sean's immense talent and extraordinary body of work. I feel very lucky to be collaborating with an artist of his caliber."
I like films and stories that deal with space exploration, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Especially with the talent involved with developing it.
A new trailer highlighting Monster Hunter has been released for Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite, and it's just weird. Maybe I've been out of the franchise too long, but since when does the main character in Monster Hunter speak? Here's another question, when did these guys get so fast because I've never seen a great sword get swung that quickly when I'm trying to take down a beast!
Jokes aside, it is a bit jarring to see such a generic customizable character in a franchise and try to give them a personality. Am I alone on this? Check out the trailer below for the DLC character and let us know if it's creeping you out as well.
Netflix has announced that BoJack Horsemanhas been renewed for Season 5! You can watch a little animated announcement video that they released below featuring a string of text messages being sent by a "clingy Netflix exec".
It's amazing to see how much this animated series has exploded in popularity since it first premiered. It's such a great show, though! I was initially not interested in watching it because talking animals just don't appeal to me. But, when I finally started watching it I realized the show is so much more! Not only is is funny but it also has a surprising amount of depth to the stories and characters. If you're not watching it, you need to start.
The fourth season of BoJack Horseman premiered on Netflix on September 8th. Will Arnett stars as BoJack, "the failed legendary ‘90s sitcom star from the favorite family sitcom Horsin’ Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback."
BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. Are you excited to hear that we will be getting a fifth season!?
It was only about a month ago that we learned Warner Bros. was developing a Joker origin solo film with producer Martin Scorsese and director Todd Phillips. Well, the studio has obviously put the project on the fast track to production because the script for the movie is already almost complete! According to Variety's Justin Kroll, a first draft of the script will be turned into the studio next week! Here's the tweet he shared with the news:
Hear THE JOKER script will be turned in by next week, super fast considering when announcement went out bodes well for 2018 shoot
That is super fast! Hopefully, the script is good! It was previously revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio was wanted for the role of The Joker, which is a casting choice a lot of fans seem to be getting behind. I'd actually love to see him get the part. It's probably a better choice than Jared Leto.
There's no official information on what the story for the film would entail, but it was previously rumored that it would a "super dark and real" film parts of which might focus on The Joker as a kid. It'sd also been described as a "gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-’80s Gotham City."
The studio is hoping to start shooting the film in 2018.
The first trailer has been released for Wes Anderson's latest film project called Isle of Dogs and it looks like an amazing movie! Isle of Dogs is a stop-motion animated film that focuses on a young boys journey to an island of exiled dogs in Japan where he embarks on a journey to find his dog Spots with the help of a few new dog friends.
The movie has an incredible voice cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Kunichi Nomura, Greta Gerwig, Frances McDormand, Courtney B. Vance, Fisher Stevens, Mari Natsuki, Harvey Keitel, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Bob Balaban, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Akira Ito, Akira Takayama, F. Murray Abraham, Yojiro Noda and Yoko Ono.
When previously talking about the film Anderson says the film was inspired by Rankin-Bass Christmas TV specials and the work of Akira Kurosawa. He explained:
“I really liked these TV Christmas specials in America. I always liked the creatures in the Harryhausen-type films, but really these American Christmas specials were probably the thing that really made me want to do it.”
I'm such of huge fan of Anderson's work. I just love his sense of humor and his storytelling and filmmaking style. This is a move that I'm incredibly excited about seeing and it looks like it turned out great! Here's the synopsis:
ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of ATARI KOBAYASHI, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
Marvel's Inhumans has not been getting a lot of love from the fans. Ever since the first images were released, it seems like the series was doomed. Almost everything released after that has been met with negativity. The series has just been crashing and burning with most fans before the series was even released!
Now, according to a report from Renew Cancel TV, AMC may have already canceled the series before it even premieres on TV. The network is promoting Inhumans as "the COMPLETE series" rather than "the first season". This leads the report to believe that any plans for a second season have been scrapped.
No official announcement has been made yet by Marvel or ABC, but I think most of us assumed that the series would go beyond a first season, anyway. I think we would all be way more surprised if Inhumans did get a Season 2 order! That would be shocking!
Regardless of all the negativity surrounding the series, I'm still going to give it a shot. Marvel should've just stuck with making the movie. Then fans would have got something that they probably would have enjoyed.
Did any of you watch the first two episodes when it was in IMAX theaters? If so, what did you think? I didn't see it, but I haven't heard anything good.
After a long delay, Capcom has already set the release date for the free to play expansion of Resident Evil 7 titled Not A Hero two weeks ago. Today, the new gameplay trailer was released and showcased RE veteran Chris Redfield as the main protagonist that will surely be nostalgic to long time fans of the franchise.
The end of the main campaign of RE7 showed Chris Redfield rescuing Ethan Winters, the new character introduced in the series, and the DLC will follow Redfield as he investigates the Baker Mansion. The three-minute trailer showed a much more familiar combat than what was experienced in RE7. There were an assortment of weapons showed, and some punching, that Chris is known to do, whether it be in the form of smacking bio weapons or gigantic boulders.
Though not much was shown, the atmosphere of the game is a little bit reminiscent of past titles, and gives off an “actiony” vibe, however, the expansion will still be played in first person mode. Not a Hero will be released on Dec 12th and will arrive alongside another add on, End of Zoe. Capcom is also set to introduce a Gold Edition of the game, which will contain the base game, the two new DLC’s and all add-ons released in the past.
