Netflix has released the first trailer for an upcoming new crime thriller called Safe. The series stars Michael C. Hall (Six Feet Under, Dexter) and he plays a widowed surgeon named Tom Delaney, whose daughter goes missing. The story follows his journey as he goes out looking for her and in the process "begins unearthing dark secrets about the people closest to him in a wealthy gated community."
The series was created by best-selling novelist Harlan Coben (the “Myron Bolitar” novel series) with a screenplay by Danny Brocklehurst (Shameless, The Street). The series also stars Amanda Abbington, Audrey Fleurot, Hannah Arterton, Emmett J. Scanlan, Marc Warren, Nigel Lindsay and Laila Rouass.
I like Michael C. Hall and I've enjoyed the shows that he's made so I'll definitely be checking this new series out. Check out the trailer and let us know if you'll be giving it a shot!
Following yesterday's amazingly entertaining trailer for Deadpool 2, two new pieces of poster art have been released. The first comes from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, which is an homage to his well-known cover to The New Mutants #98, which was the first appearance of the character. When talking about the art during an interview with Fandango, Liefeld said:
"The cover to New Mutants #98 has become an iconic image, and it is the comic that introduced Deadpool and Domino to the world. New Mutants #98 has become a key image in the comic book pantheon, so I thought it would be great to pay homage with the movie cast… and I gotta be honest, man -- it turned out better than I imagined! I teamed up with a guy named Mike Capprotti, who I have worked with several times on many Deadpool covers. He has such a beautiful palette, and so we jammed together and came up with this great piece."
He went on to say:
"I didn't know that I was going to get a chance to recreate the cover of New Mutants #98 with actors as all these characters. That was my calling card. I brought the world Cable, Deadpool, Domino, and it changed the course of my career. It gave me the career that I've had, and so it was just a pleasure [to pay homage]. And now the fact that it's going to be a poster with Fandango! Fandango's a big deal. That’s huge. It’s my pinch-me moment."
If you want to get yourself a copy of the art, order your tickets from Fandango! The second poster that was released comes from Dolby Cinema and it features Deadpool sitting in a movie theater presumably watching Deadpool 2. The movie will be released on May 18th!
Universal Pictures is planning to take another crack at the Doom video game franchise! Back in 2005 the Dwayne Johnson and Karl Urban film was released and, unfortunately, it wasn't really the best movie and it was a big flop at the box office. Obviously, they hope that things will be a little different this next time around.
The news of the film comes from actress Nina Bergman (Assassin X) who recently posted a series of interesting tweets revealing that Universal is prepping a new adaptation of Doom that she will be starring in.
The actress says, "Wow I’m doing the next “Doom” movie w/Universal Pictures! I just signed all the paperwork. I get to go back to Bulgaria again and work with some of my favorite people. This movie w/a super cool Director AND my new record coming out, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
Universal Pictures hasn't officially announced anything on their end yet, which make me think that Bergman should have looked at that paperwork she signed a little more closely before tweeting out this information. Normally this isn't the way a big studio would want an announcement like this made, so I'm wondering if she's saying something that she shouldn't be saying. But, it's out there now, and there's no takebacks!
In another tweet, Bergman said that the new adaptation will be better than the 2005 film, as it has a "much better script."
We have no other information on the film but as a fan of the Doom franchise, I can't help but be a little excited about how this might turn out. It really can't end up being any worse than the first movie! In case you need a little reminder of what that first movie was like, I included the trailer below.

Jamie Lee Curtis is pretty psyched for the new Halloween film not just because she's in it, but because she thinks it's legitimately terrifying. The star of the film said that much will be evident from the trailer which she described as "full-tilt boogeyman," to Yahoo:
“I’ve seen a trailer and I’ve seen some footage, and it’s terrifying. They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”
Of course, Curtis quickly followed it up by saying she probably won't see the film, as horror movies, surprisingly, aren't her thing:
“For people who like that sort of thing, I think it’s going to be really fun for them to experience. For me, that just doesn’t hold any interest to me. Because I’m frightened enough about all [today’s political climate]. So the idea of now paying money and sitting in a dark theater with a bunch of people and watching something really scary doesn’t really do much for me. But there are a lot of people who love it, and they’re gonna love this movie.”
Halloween opens on October 19. Do you believe the film will be as scary as Curtis alleges the trailer to be?
The final Deadpool 2 trailer has been released, and out of all the mutants who made an appearance, the team's newest member Peter is the fans new favorite of the team. It appears as though Ryan Reynolds and crew expected this, as they've already created an official account for the character, and it's comedy gold:
Peter's Twitter is rife with stuff that some lame middle-aged dude would post on the internet, which actually now that I'm thinking of it, might be low-key offensive to any lame middle-aged dude reading this post. There's also a sick burn delivered to star actor Ryan Reynolds, although Peter might be clueless as to how biting his tweet actually was:
Thank you, Ryan. During our honeymoon, Susan and I savored your work in The Notebook. Good luck on your incredible journey. https://t.co/6gx7p0Sj6o
Death pools for Avengers: Infinity War are being worked on by countless fans as they try to figure out who will die, who will live, and who will die but be resurrected. I myself am constantly editing my death pool (you can find an early draft here) as I try to put pieces together based on previous movies, interviews, etc. However, Anthony Mackie has something to say about the fate of Falcon.
Of course, everything about the film is submerged in millions of layers of secrecy, so we should take everything with a grain of salt. That being said, I do think that during Infinity War or Avengers 4 Steve Rogers will die (or maybe be sent to the past?) and Falcon will become the new Captain America which means Falcon is safe from being killed off. I know many of you are saying Winter Soldier will become Captain America, and that is my second theory. Of course, if Falcon’s pack malfunctions or is damaged, that does put a wrinkle in his ability to fly which then throws Mackie’s argument out the window. Not to mention, if any of the bad guys have ranged weaponry, he's still in trouble. Also, what about all the other characters who can fly? Shouldn't they be safe? They're not. I have Iron Man as my #1 death (not my first, but the one I am most confident in). What do you think? Is Falcon safe in your death pool?
Here's a fun video released by Omaze that features Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen the Mother of Dragons, attempting to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the set of the final season of Game of Thrones. Of course, she amusingly fails at every attempt.
This is all for a good cause as it is offering one fan and a guest the opportunity to be flown out to Northern Ireland to hang out with Clarke over lunch and get a real sneak peek at the top-secret set in Belfast. Here's what the winner will receive:
Hold onto your dragon—you’re joining Emilia Clarke (the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, Breaker of Chains, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, etc.) for a behind-the-scenes peek of Westeros. That’s right, you and friend are headed to the real home of Game of Thrones in Belfast, Northern Ireland! Once there, you’ll get to ask Emilia all your burning questions over lunch with The Unburnt herself. And because you’ll be with the rightful(ish) heir to the Iron Throne, you and your GoT-loving friend will have exclusive access to see things like costumes, props and more. Whether you bend the knee or not, you’ve pretty much won the Game of Thrones. Flights to the realm and hotel are on us.
The donations that are made will go to the The Royal College of Nursing Foundation, which "provides vital support for the nurses, midwives and health care assistants who care for us and our families day in and day out. The Foundation encourages young people to join the nursing profession, funds education and training opportunities, lends a hand to those struggling to meet the rising cost of living and provides advice and support to get their lives back on track. Your donation through this campaign will directly support the funding of a new generation of specialist nurses, whether they’re working in a stroke unit, a cancer ward, a diabetes clinic, a neurological center or another specialist setting."
It appears that the ever-popular battle royale game, Fortnite, is invading China next. Developer Epic Games posted an image on Twitter yesterday showing the fictional passport of Jonesy, one of the game’s famous characters. The interesting part of the image is that the passport is stamped for entry into China on April 23, which is probably a clue on the game’s release date in the country.
It is not a surprising fact that Epic Games would like to release their game in China given that the country is a massive market for games. However, just as Fortnite’s competitor PUBG learned, hacking and cheating are major concerns in China. In fact PUBG previously reported that around 90% of cheaters in the game came from China. Given Epic Games’ stance on cheaters in the past, it will definitely be interesting to see how Fortnite will handle the Chinese market.
Besides the tweet suggesting Fortnite’s attempt to enter China, not much details were released. We don’t know in which platforms Fortnite will be available in. However, Chinese gamers prefer PC and mobile gaming rather than home consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4
GameTyrant have contacted Epic Games for more information on this and we will update this article if we hear back from the developer.
