Big news from the land of Asgard; stuff so surprising not even Heimdall could have seen it coming.
As many promoting The Leftovers Season 2 can attest (including our own forthcoming review), the second outing of Damon Lindelof’s HBO rapture drama strikes a vastly different, even more upbeat tone in certain spots. Nothing will make that clearer than the brand-new opening credits, an impressive contrast from the classical painting and ominous “BRAHM”s of yesteryear. Plus - first clip from the premiere!
I don’t know how make a sequel to The Cabin in the Woods. But apparently a second Cabin (2 Cabin 2 Woods?) is possible anyway, at least if the film’s distributor, Lionsgate gets its way.
