First Altered Carbon Season 2 Promo Reveals The Premiere Date

Altered Carbon was one of Netflix’s biggest hits of 2018. Based on Richard Morgan’s 2002 novel, the show took viewers into a crazy and cool cyberpunk world where consciousness can be transferred to different bodies. Within this, we followed detective Takeshi Kovacs, who was played by Joel Kinnaman, and while the show was quickly renewed after the first season, fans have had to wait a while for the next run. But now, thanks to this cool new teaser, we know when it’s landing: February 27th, 2020.

The second season will continue to follow Takeshi Kovacs, though this time he’ll be inhabiting a new body and be played by the McU’s next Captain America, Anthony Mackie. While we don’t know a huge amount about the next run (and this cryptic teaser reveals nothing), Altered Carbon creator Laeta Kalogridis has said in an interview that they want to explore

Hugo Weaving Says Marvel Made Avengers Return "Impossible"

Kirsten Howard Jan 22, 2020

Hugo Weaving has been talking about why he didn't return to the role of Red Skull in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

Hugo Weaving's relationship with the character of Red Skull has been consistently evolving since he first appeared as the villain in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger.

Just a year after the film came out, he told Collider that reprising the role was "not something I would want to do again", explaining he "did sign up for a number of" McU movies and "contractually, I would be obliged to, if they forced me to, but they wouldn’t want to force someone to do it, if they didn’t want to" and that "it’s not the sort of film I seek out and really am excited by."

Later, in 2016, he admitted to Yahoo that it was actually "fun to play" Captain America's nemesis, but

Hugo Weaving Reveals If He’ll Return As Agent Smith In The Matrix 4

There once existed a world where a young Keanu Reeves stuck solely to mid-tier romantic dramas, and that’s a world without the Wachowskis. Thankfully, they cast his beautiful, null void of a face in the 1999 kung-fu bullet-time progenitor, and are doubly thankfully bringing his Neo back for The Matrix 4, which is currently slated for a May 21st, 2021 release. But will Neo’s twice-destroyed nemesis, Agent Smith, also be coming back?

In an interview with London’s Time Out magazine, Hugo Weaving literally said “I’m not, no,” when asked if he was going to be appearing in the upcoming sequel. But, shortly thereafter in the interview, Weaving divulged a bit about the behind-the-scenes goings-ons of the project, explaining the following:

The Matrix is a very different story. It’s unfortunate but actually I had this offer [for his current stage play “The Visit”] and then the offer came from The Matrix, so I

Hugo Weaving confirms Agent Smith’s absence from The Matrix 4

Hugo Weaving’s Agent Smith was as iconic as any ‘woah’ or pill-based existential choice when The Matrix redefined the science-fiction landscape way back in the distant past of 1999. So with Lana Wachowski picking up the phonebooth receiver to reunite Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss for the upcoming fourth instalment, it might surprise some to […]

Matrix 4 May Bring Back the Merovingian as Erendira Ibarra Joins Cast

  • MovieWeb
We've got some more casting updates for The Matrix 4. The sci-fi sequel is gearing up to film this year and will bring back original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as Neo and Trinity, respectively. However, it looks like another, far more obscure, character from the original trilogy may be getting back in on the action this time around as well. Meanwhile, another actress has boarded the growing ensemble in the form of Erendira Ibarra.

First up, let's go over the possibly more interesting and unexpected of these two. According to a new report, actor Lambert Wilson, who starred in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, says his character The Merovingian is in the script for The Matrix 4 and that he's in negotiations to return. However, some of his prior commitments could get in the way, in terms of scheduling. Should things work out, this would make

The Merovingian Will Return In ‘The Matrix 4,’ According To Actor Lambert Wilson

While we know that “The Matrix 4” is set to go into production soon and hit theaters in May 2021, we still don’t have much of a clue about what the story is about.

Tim Allen Told Keanu Reeves How He'd Kill John Wick, Then It Got Real

Dog lover and hitman John Wick has emerged as one of cinema's most indestructible characters, able to kill swatches of henchmen and fall off of tall buildings without breaking much of a sweat. But, what if an unlikely individual, say, Tim Allen, was to emerge as the man to kill Baba Yaga? Well, that is exactly what Allen had in mind when he relayed his assassination plan to Mr. Wick himself, Keanu Reeves.

"I go into this whole thing, 'Hey, Keanu. Here's what I would do if I was in the movie, if I was one of the villains. I'd say, 'Hey, look. Let's keep him out of enclosed spaces. What I would do is I'd wait until you come out of your house, because you have a little dog that you walk. I'd be across the street with a big rifle and I'd just pick you off coming out of the house.

Iron Fist Star Jessica Henwick Almost Played Rey in Star Wars After 6-Month Audition

Iron Fist Star Jessica Henwick Almost Played Rey in Star Wars After 6-Month Audition
Rey has now been at the centre of the Star Wars galaxy since The Force Awakens back in 2015, and has earned her place as one of the franchise's icons. The role has made actress Daisy Ridley a household name and Hollywood A-lister, and no doubt changed her life.

So, it must have been excruciatingly disappointing for up-and-coming actress Jessica Henwick, who has detailed how close she came to the part of Rey, before being given a role in The Force Awakens as pilot Jess Pava.

"Oh my God, dude. That was fucking six months. That was a long one. I was auditioning for a different character, actually, so I spent six months auditioning for that character. And then, at the end, J.J. said, 'I want you to be in the film, but I want to write a character for you.' That's how Jess Pava was created.

So, it was a very,

Star Wars Actress Says Her Character Survived The Rise Of Skywalker Off-Screen

Jessica Henwick has ticked off many major franchises in her career so far. She got her big break in Game of Thrones, followed that up with a leading role in Marvel’s Iron Fist and is about to star in The Matrix 4. What you might not know, though, is that the actress has also appeared in a galaxy far, far away. Henwick played Jess Pava, a Resistance pilot who helps take down Starkiller Base, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Henwick hasn’t returned to the saga since then though, so it’s unclear what happened to her character. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, however, the star confirmed that Pava is still alive and survived the climactic events of The Rise of Skywalker . For proof that there’s still life in Jess, Henwick pointed to the character’s off-screen adventures in the Star Wars comics – particularly,

Jessica Henwick Talks Underwater, Godzilla Vs Kong, The Matrix 4 and More [Exclusive]
Jessica Henwick has been rising through the Hollywood ranks in recent years, and 2020 is set to be a big one for her. Not only does she star in this weekend's big-scale horror flick Underwater, but she's also got the apocalyptic Monster Problems and the much-anticipated Godzilla vs. Kong on deck. Henwick certainly seems to be carving out a niche for herself this year. But there is plenty more on the horizon for the 27-year-old actresses that doesn't involve monsters. She was recently cast in The Matrix 4 alongside Keanu Reeves, for one.

Viewers may know Jessica Henwick from her roles in shows like HBO's Game of Thrones or Netflix's Iron Fist. But with some of the high-profile projects she's got on deck, people will surely become much more familiar with her very soon. As for Underwater, the movie comes from director William Eubank (The Signal) and is very

The Matrix 4 Brings in Sense8 Actor Max Riemelt

The initial announcement that we would be getting The Matrix 4 came as such a surprise it is still hard to believe it is true, but with each new casting announcement we edge ever closer to seeing it on the big screen.

Female-Led Matrix TV Show Reportedly Coming To HBO Max

The Matrix has been switched off for the past two decades, but it’s about to be rebooted with the incoming Matrix 4, the belated sequel which is set to bring back Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss alongside franchise newcomers Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Jessica Henwick. That’s not all Warner Bros. is planning to do with the brand, though, as We Got This Covered is hearing that a TV series set in the same universe is also in development.

Our sources – the same ones who told us Manteen II is playing Young Morpheus in The Matrix 4, which has since been confirmed – are saying that a Matrix TV show is on its way to upcoming streaming service HBO Max. We’ve been informed that the project will be female-led, with the story following a young woman discovering that she’s in the Matrix and joining the fight against the machines.

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Could Spawn A Trilogy And Robotnik Spinoff

When Sonic the Hedgehog gets its long-awaited theatrical release on Valentine’s Day this year – because that’s the movie couples will be swooning over – it could mark the start of a burgeoning film franchise. That’s what Paramount are hoping for, at least, with the studio said to be planning to make the new release the first in a Sonic the Hedgehog cinematic trilogy, along with a potential spinoff for Jim Carrey’s Robotnik.

That’s according to our sources, the same ones who said a Scream reboot was in the works and that Yahya Abdul Manteen II is playing a young Morpheus in The Matrix 4, both of which were later confirmed. And while it obviously all depends on how the first film does at the box office, these plans certainly seem likely to move forward.

After all, commercially successful video game adaptations have been made, albeit fleetingly.
