Lenny Busker is back in this preview for Season 2 of Legion, and if you were already excited for this series to return you're about to get even more amped up. Aubrey Plaza's character doesn't reveal much about what's in store for this season, but she does play up the crazy and remind everyone just how weird this show got in Season 1. Check out the teaser video below and get ready for Legion Season 2 April 3:
The first clip has been released from the upcoming Tomb Raider movie. It shows us an adventurous scene of Alicia Vikander's Lara Croft on a thriller escape from Walton Goggins' villainous character, Father Mathias Voge.
The footage looks great! There's a lot of cool elements that come right out of the video game. Everything from the visuals to the Lara Croft grunts. I especially like how, in classic Tomb Raider fashion, things go from bad to worse for Lara Croft. This actually looks like it could be a solid video game adaptation. Which, as you all know, is something that Hollywood has struggled with for years.
Tomb Raider is being directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave) and it also stars Daniel Wu as Lu Ren, the ship captain who helps Lara in searching for her Father; Dominic West as Lord Richard Croft, Lara's deceased archaeologist father; and Hannah John-Kamen as Sophie, Croft's flatmate and best friend.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.
Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.
The movie hits theaters March 16th, 2018. Enjoy the clip!
You all knew this was coming. Screen Junkies has released their Honest Trailer for DC Entertainment's Justice League and as you'd expect it amusingly tears the movie apart. They definitely don't hold back or hesitate at taking shots at several different aspects of the film including the special effects, dialogue, plot points, and more. One of my favorite parts is when they compare the villain Steppenwolf to Buster Bluth from Arrested Development, with all of the talk of "Mother". Wheather you liked the movie or not, a lot of the stuff that is pointed out in this Honest Trailer is valid. But it's done in an entertaining way, so enjoy!
This is our first official photo from director Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. After all that Gilliam has gone through in trying to make this film over the years, it's crazy that it actually got made. This first photo features Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirate of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha.
The movie also stars Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Good Will Hunting), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion), Joana Ribeiro (Portugal Não Está à Venda, A Uma Hora Incerta), Óscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Jordi Mollà (Criminal, In the Heart of the Sea), Sergi Lopez (Pan’s Labyrinth) and Rossy de Palma (Julieta, The Flower of my Secret).
Amazon Studios picked up the distribution right to the movie and after 17 years of trying to get this movie made, it will make its big debut at Cannes Film Festival this year.

It seems like the hype for battle royale games isn’t dying out any time soon. Even though PUBG is experiencing a decline in players for the first time ever, the battle royale genre is still growing as a whole and many developers are in stiff competition with one another to bring the best and most ambitious game out to the public.
Among the many upcoming battle royale games, Mavericks: Proving Grounds, may just be the most ambitious one yet. The game is being developed by a UK based studio, Automaton Games. Mavericks: Proving Grounds aims to give players the biggest and grandest battle royal game ever by increasing the traditional number of players from 100 to a whopping 400 players.
Furthermore, Automaton is also looking at the game’s environment and wants to improve the visual aspects of battle royal games. For Proving Grounds, the developer will be using SpatialOS tech that would create a “living, breathing world” that would be somewhat similar to the environment in huge single-player games such as Horizon Zero Dawn or The Witcher 3. You can check out the first teaser trailer for Mavericks: Proving Grounds below:
In an interview with PC Gamer, James Thompson from Automaton Games shared their vision and their goal for the battle royal genre in general:
“We want to focus on using more up-to-date tech to do something really ambitious, which is to create something that’s both really realistic and intuitive to play through, but is also massive in scale. (Similar to other battle royale games), but also very very different in the level of simulation and strategy that we’ve put in the world.”
Furthermore, Thompson said that several dynamic elements such as animals and forest fires will create a new level of simulation, and promises players that they are creating a “very thoughtful” and diverse level design. Mavericks: Proving Grounds is set to be released sometime this year, with an open beta scheduled this summer.

Netflix has released the date for the second season of their hit series Santa Clarita Diet! We get to see the second season in just over a month, on March 23rd.
The series centers around Sheila, played by Drew Barrymore, and her husband Joel, played by Timothy Olyphant. They are real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California, and parents to their daughter Abby (Liv Hewson). They have a nice, simple life until Sheila “dies”, but keeps on living, and things get more and more complicated.
This show is so freaking hilarious! I hadn’t laughed so hard at a series in a long time when my husband and I started watching the first season. We binged it last February when it came out, and I’ve been anticipating the second season for a year. I’m so excited to hear that it’s right around the corner!
Catch up on Netflix, or rewatch the first season like I will be doing!
The Push is an intriguing special coming to Netflix that focuses on a real psychological illusionist named Derren Brown as he seriously trick a man into committing a murder. This thing looks crazy! Brown organizes a whole elaborate setup to push some poor guy into killing someone. Apparently Brown has been doing shows like this in the United Kingdom for a few years, but this is his first American special. Here's the synopsis:
In The Push, Brown exposes the psychological secrets of obedience and social compliance. He expertly lifts the lid on the terrifying truth that, when confronted with authority, our natural instinct is to unflinchingly obey without question – to such an extent that even the most moral people can be made to commit the most horrendous acts, simply because they are told to do so.
This is seriously one hell of cruel prank to pull on someone! It's downright unsettling. Watch the trailer and you'll see how this whole think is set up. I can't help but feel sorry for this guy! Is something like this crossing the line?
The Push premieres on Netflix February 27.
This is one of the previous project from Derren Brown:
It doesn't look like Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan is going to last much longer on the series as she just booked the lead role in a new ABC drama pilot called Whiskey Cavalier.
According to Variety, Cohan currently doesn't have a contract to return to The Walking Dead Season 9, but she's been in negotiations with AMC for months over her potential return. That's still up ion the air, but it's weird to think that she might be leaving the show. She's been a regular on it since Season 2.
As far as this new series goes, Whiskey Cavalier is described as a "high-octane hour-long action dramedy that follows the adventures of tough but tender FBI super agent Will Chase (Scott Foley) who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (Cohan). Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny, heroic spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics."
Sounds like it might be fun, but we'll just have to wait and see how it turns out. The series comes from writer and producer Dave Hemingson (The Catch, Uncle Buck).
