We’re less than two weeks away from the Netflix debut of Marvel’s Daredevil, but the release of all 13 episodes can’t stop our hunt for new footage. The latest spot for Marvel’s man without fear dials up the action, as Matt Murdock kicks and flips his way through every evil-doer in Kingpin’s arsenal.
Arrow’s most recent Suicide Squad venture seemingly set up a larger team presence in the CW super-drama’s fourth season outing this fall, but DC may have taken Task Force X off the table. At least one fan-favorite Suicide Squad character may not return to Arrow in the near future, and he may have taken the team with him.
The Walking Dead Season 5 shambled out its 15th and penultimate entry with Sunday’s latest “Try” but how did it hold up to the comic book continuity? Rick attempted to mediate the domestic abuse between Alexandria's Pete and Jessie, while Daryl and Aaron discovered a sinister group outside the gates, so let’s find out how close the source material stuck through Sunday’s latest!
The other day, we reported on The Leviathan, an interesting proof of concept short that’s being developed into a film with producers Neill Blomkamp and Simon Kinberg over at Fox. That’s not the only sci-fi short that’s getting the big screen treatment: on the heels of that news comes word that Warner Bros. has just acquired the film rights to Sundays, a short directed by Mischa Rozema.
TV returns seem all the rage these days, and while Heroes Reborn technically beat the current crop by months with its 2014 announcement, NBC remains bafflingly adamant it come to fruition. Original series star Masi Oka has been confirmed to return as the time-bending Hiro Nakamura, alongside a slew of new recruits and an apparent fall 2015 airdate.
Star Trek’s rebooted cinematic tenure under J.J. Abrams has led to diminishing returns, Star Trek 3 just barely making it off the ground, leading many to wonder when Gene Roddenberry’s iconic franchise might return to its TV roots. That time may already be upon us, CBS is reportedly looking to boldly go forward with a new TV Star Trek.
These days, we’re more used to Sir Patrick Stewart classing up movie screens, or as a voice in Seth MacFarlane’s corner, but the erstwhile Captain Picard is returning to TV full-time as a coke-sniffing cable news pundit transplanted to America. Watch Patrick Steward give some Blunt Talk in the first trailer for Starz’s new MacFarlane-produced comedy!
Netflix remains intent on us spending all our weekends inside on the latest binge, and where last Saturday introduced viewers to the plodding Rayburn drama of Bloodline, this Friday’s latest binge comes with much less class. The entire ninth season of Canadian comedy Trailer Park Boys has arrived in full.
Post Credits, ScreenCrush’s new movie review show, returns with an all-new episode about one of the most anticipated movies of the spring: Furious 7, the latest entry in the long-running Fast & Furious franchise. Hosts Mike Sampson and Matt Singer dive deep into the film like precision drives diving out of a plane in cars (which is a thing that happens in Furious 7). Topics up for discussion include new director James Wan, new villain Jason Statham, the outrageous stunts and action, and whether or not either host cried at the film’s emotional send-off for late star Paul Walker. (Or, more accurately, whether or not either host would admit they cried at the film’s emotional send-off for late star Paul Walker.)
Consistently excellent, though perhaps underwritten about, History’s Vikings show no signs of slowing down through 2015 or 2016. The historical fantasy (ish) drama has officially been renewed for another raid in Season 4, continuing the tale of warrior-philosopher-king Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel).
