Netflix Releases Original Movie “The Discovery” In March

Netflix originals don’t just mean TV shows anymore. March 31st, they are releasing their first entirely original movie The Discovery. It is directed by Charlie McDowell and stars Jason Segel, Rooney Mara, Robert Redford, Jesse Plemons and Riley Keough. For those of you unaware, this is where you know those names from:

  • Jason Segel is best known for his lead role in How I Met Your Mother, and other successful comedies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
  • Rooney Mara is well known for her roles in both movies The Social Network, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
  • Robert Redford is most known for his role in some of the old classics like The Sting, or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It’ll be exciting to see him on screen again!
  • Jesse Plemons is well known for his role in TV show, Friday Night Lights, as well as his roles in movies Battleship, Bridge of Spies, and Black Mass.
  • Riley Keough is known for her role in hit movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

The Discovery takes place one year right after the afterlife is scientifically proven and confirmed. (Woah.) With the existence of the afterlife proven, thousands of people are ending their own lives to get there. Following this breakthrough, a man and a women meet each other and fall in love. They learn how to come to terms with the true nature of the afterlife together.

Reviews of the movie at Sundance were mixed to positive, so not sure if the movie will be a hit just yet. Looks like we’ll have to wait for the masses to watch it at the end of March. We all can agree though, if you enjoyed Netflix’s The OA, this movie might be right up your alley. Check out the trailer below.

Iwan Rheon to Star as Maximus the Mad in New ABC Drama

Word on the street is that Iwan Rheon, that guy we all loved to hate on Game of Thrones, is going to star as Maximus the Mad in a new ABC/Marvel Studios drama “Inhumans“.

Iwan-Rheon-Computer-Wallpaper

I’m hoping from his picture, those of you GOT watchers are having flashbacks of rage. Iwan Rheon is most well known for his role as Ramsay Bolton in the show, and let’s be honest, he did a phenomenal job of making the audience hate his guts.

Now, he is set to play the star Maximus the Mad in Inhumans. Maximus is meant to be a clever and charming inhuman. A part of the royal family, he is passionately devoted to both his family and people, and he is the brother to the king. We all know how this story goes, the brother of the king is always jealous wishing it was him on the throne instead, and the story is no different here. So while Maximus is very much a man of the people, he also covets the power of the throne. Sounds like a dynamic character for Rheon to play.

Inhumans is going to be an epic adventure about Black Bolt and the royal family. The race of inhumans is very similar to mutants in the x-men universe. They are superhumans with diverse and unique powers. The show is going to be an eight episode series airing this Labor Day 2017.

There’s a couple of exciting differences with this series. Rather than the series have a regular premiere on our TV’s at home, the first two episodes will be premiering in more than 1,000 Imax theaters in 74 countries. The goal is to make the premiere of the series an event rather than letting it fall into the crowd of all the fall TV shows.

So this isn’t only a joint venture between Marvel and ABC, but also Imax. Imax paid for the first two episodes and help with the costs for the show. This has us excited because if these three companies are teaming up to make this series, we all know it’s going to be spectacular.

In the original Psycho directed by Alfred Hitchcock, Marion Crane is in an unhappy relationship with her boyfriend who is going through a shady divorce. Crane wants to marry her boyfriend Sam but is unable to, due to his financial debts to alimony. Desperate to marry Sam, Crane steals cash from her boss to road trip to her lover. In the midst of it all Crane finds herself running off a road at the Bates Motel where she meets Norman Bates and is later killed by him. Will Marion Crane (Rihanna), share the same fate in Bates as the original Psycho character played by Janet Leigh in 1979?

According to Bates‘ Executive Producer Kerry Ehrin, Rihanna will star in multiple episodes and the run away/stolen money scenario will be the same from the original plot. Fans are eagerly waiting for RiRi to take on Marion Crane in her edgy red wig in the final season of Bates Motel.

Will this be Katherine Heigl’s Comeback

FX isn’t the only network pumping out new shows, CBS just premiered a new legal drama last night. The show is called Doubt, and stars Katherine Heigl. I’m not sure if you all can recall this, but years ago Heigl was basically the face of blockbuster romantic comedies. She delivered back-to-back hits including Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, The Ugly Truth, and then later Life As We Know It.

This was right around the time she departed hit show Grey’s Anatomy, not on the best of terms. Following some bad rumors circulating about her being “difficult” to work with, she was no longer featured in some hit movies and shows. Now, her show Doubt is premiering on CBS and this likely could be her comeback she’s been waiting for.

Her show Doubt is a legal drama centered around Sadie Ellis, a lawyer at a boutique law firm. Of course as with any of these legal dramas we see today, her cases are exceptionally difficult and unique and she’s got a tricky personal backstory too. What else is exciting about this show? Well, her supporting cast is of the highest caliber including Laverne Cox from Orange is the New Black, and Dule Hill from The West Wing and Psych. If you’re a fan of Katherine Heigl and have been missing her presence on screen lately, then this is a need-to-see show for you.

Check out the trailer below! What do you think? Is this the hit show that could spark Heigl’s comeback!?

The Lost City of Z starring Charlie Hunnam has Potential to be an Instant Jungle Classic

Yesterday, while the whole world was complaining about the annual “singles awareness day”, we turned our attention to the Berlin Film Festival where The Lost City of Z made it’s international premiere. In a nutshell, this movie looks like it needs to immediately be added to your list of movies you want to see ASAP, and here’s why:

First of all, the movie stars Son’s of Anarchy hunk Charlie Hunnam and Twilight vampire hunk (if you’re into that) Robert Pattinson. So no matter what, all of you girls are going to have something nice to look at throughout the movie. Furthermore, the actors deliver superior performances of complex characters that will keep anyone interested throughout the movie.

Also, the plot of the movie is derived from the best seller book written by David Grann. So, we know from that the story is of high quality, and sure to have twists and turns for us viewers.

The movie is based in the Amazon jungle, and is the story of Percy Fawcett, Hunnam, a skilled soldier who is ridiculed for his family’s past. This causes him to snatch up the opportunity to travel to South America to fulfill a quest resolving a land dispute between Bolivia and Brazil, and restore some honor to his family name. During his trip, he uncovers archaeological anomalies that lead to his theory of the existence of an ancient civilization, prompting a hunger inside of him to discover the lost city of Z and learn the secrets it may hold.

Another reason this film looks great is because it has a lot of great old-school features to it that remind many of the Heart of Darkness, or the Wrath of God. It is a jungle adventure film that also addresses some complex issues such as white racism, or the savage greed of the western world — perhaps an attribute of modern civilization that has only grown over time.

Check out the trailer below, and add it to your watchlist people! The film will be released as follows:

France ……. March 15
UK …………. March 24
Germany … March 30
USA ……….. April 14
