Book Review – Relics by Tim Lebbon

29 minutes ago

Michelle Herbert reviews Relics by Tim Lebbon

Relics is one of those books that you’re not really sure what to expect from, at the start we are introduced to Angela, who is being interrogated by the police. We are not told why she has been arrested or why they believe she is involved in a murder investigation. All we know is that Angela is protecting someone and will not betray their trust.

Then, like in a TV show, we are taken back five days to the events that led to Angela’s arrest. In the past, Angela is just living her life, spending her days working on her PhD in criminology. Angela is described as someone who is very logical and able to compartmentalise her life so that she is able to see events clearly. Angela lives with Vince, an estate agent and they seem to be very happy together. »

With Riverdale set to return this October, The CW has released a new trailer for the upcoming second season of the live-action Archie series which you can check out below along with a poster…

See Also: Watch the trailer for Riverdale season 2 here

The first season of Riverdale found our characters reeling from the tragic death of high school golden boy Jason Blossom.  For many who had seen their home as perfect, safe, and innocent, the investigation into Jason’s murder peeled back the layers of their hometown to reveal a place bubbling over with secrets, mysteries, and scandals.  

Archie Andrews (Kj Apa), for instance, grew from a sweet, all-American kid into a young man acutely aware of the darker side of life – he broke his best friend’s heart, had a forbidden relationship with his music teacher, and grappled with whether he wanted to follow in his dad’s salt-of-the-earth footsteps. »

Captain Marvel will not be undergoing a page one rewrite

3 hours ago

A couple of days ago it was announced that Tomb Raider writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet is taking over scripting duties on Captain Marvel from Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman, who wrote the original screenplay for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster.

And now, Guardians of the Galaxy writer Perlman has taken to Twitter to discuss the switch-up, revealing that Robertson-Dworet will be working on their script, rather than a page one rewrite, and that the movie will still retain the elements revealed at Comic-Con – i.e. an early 90s setting, and Carol Danvers battling the Skrulls.

“Happy to confirm my pal Geneva Robertson-Dworet will be the next writer to help guide Captain Marvel’s journey to the screen. She’s stellar!” said Perlman on Twitter. “Geneva is taking it from here and I’m sure she’ll knock it out of the park. It’s been a great 2.5 years though. All the ideas »

Apple investing $1 billion in original TV and movie content

3 hours ago

Mega corporation Apple is investing $1 billion in original films and TV shows.

Apple seems to be preparing to enter the Hollywood space, and perhaps ruffling some feathers on the way. It is being reported that Apple is targeting an investment of $1 billion for original TV and film content over the next year, hoping to establish itself among the likes of Netflix and Amazon.

Apple could be in line to acquire up to 10 premium TV series with executives now looking for prospects.

Its intentions were made clear back in June when the company hired Hollywood players Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht — long-time presidents at Sony Pictures Television. The two men have been tasked with assembling a slate of top tier, world class content.

And this week, Apple brought on Matt Cherniss, the ex-g.M. of Wgn America and Tribune Studios. Cherniss will be heading development for the original entertainment group. »

4 hours ago

It looks like Ewan McGregor may be about to get his wish of reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, as THR is reporting that Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) is in talks with Lucasfilm to helm an Anthology movie based upon the legendary Jedi Knight.

The site reports that talks are at the earliest of stages, and there is currently no script for the film. Should a deal be reached, Daldry would oversee development and writing on the project, which is said to be one of several Anthology movies in the works at Lucasfilm.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters director teases connection to original 1954 Godzilla

5 hours ago

As production continues on Godzilla: King of the Monsters, director Michael Dougherty has taken to Twitter to share the following image, which features an interesting connection with Toho’s original 1954 movie…

Godzilla fans will recognise the above as the Oxygen Destroyer, a weapon designed by Dr. Serizawa which is used to kill the King of the Monsters in the original film.

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Dougherty is teasing the death of Godzilla: it’s possible that the Oxygen Destroyer could be used against one of the other kaiju in the film, or perhaps even a hint towards the creation of Destoroyah, the main antagonist in 1995’s Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.

The It movie will be coming to IMAX

6 hours ago

The remake/re-adaptation of It is coming to IMAX screens.

Fans of the seminal Stephen King novel It are eagerly anticipating the release of the movie adaptation this September, with the film itself gaining some significant buzz outside the usual circles.

Those waiting for the movie will be looking forward to seeing it wherever possible of course, but for those who like to see their films on the biggest screen possible, the news that It is coming to IMAX will surely delight.

The news was announced on Instagram by producer Barbara Muschetti.

It wasn’t filmed in IMAX, however, so it won’t be able to take full advantage of the grand technology, but for those wanting to be fully immersed in the dread that will accompany the picture, seeing it in IMAX will be the way to go.

Mr. Mercedes Season 1 Episode 2 Review – ‘On Your Mark’

6 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the second episode of Mr. Mercedes

For those expecting concise characterisation, clear structure and narrative clarify with Mr. Mercedes be warned this takes a little longer than most. It plays out like an elongated episode of Jimmy McGovern’s Cracker without the chain-smoking, alcohol addled central protagonist. There are no failing marriages, awkward family dinners or extra-marital liaisons, instead we get a softer edged Gleeson as Bill Hodges who lacks cynicism but retains ample sarcasm. This is less the serial killer next door vibe from last week, choosing instead to unpack character, imply instability and give substance to an understated performance.

Elsewhere Harry Treadaway brings humanity to Brady Hartsfield in his techno basement lair, making everything deceptively clear-cut within two episodes. Kelly Lynch adds depth and pathos to her gutter trash depiction of a mother in awe of someone who makes her uncomfortable. Meaning that Mr. Mercedes »

Update: Casey Affleck doesn’t think Ben Affleck is returning for The Batman

7 hours ago

Update: As suspected, it seems that Casey Affleck was just having a little fun here, as his rep has confirmed that he was “not speaking from a place of firsthand knowledge”, while Ben Affleck’s rep also confirmed that “he’ll continue to be Batman as long as the studio will have him”. Original story follows…

The “will he or won’t he” saga of Ben Affleck returning for The Batman has been going on for quite a while now. Since last December, at the very least. The stars future involving the cowl was up in the air last winter only to be squashed by Ben Affleck himself. Rumors arose once again regarding the actor’s involvement only a month ago… again, only to be shot down by Batfleck at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Now? Casey AffleckBen Affleck’s brother – has stirred up a whole new controversy during an interview with Weei Sports Radio. »
