At this point, we’ve no idea what to expect from Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival, particularly if David Lynch will allow for any real trailer. All the same, our first official look at the cast’s grand return is here, along with a few scant new details of the “feature film in 18 parts.”
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt may be debuting Season 3 later in the year than we’re used to, but the wait appears to be well worth it. Not only do we have our first photos, but also word on new and returning guests, from Laura Dern to Jon Hamm and yes, Robert Durst. Sort of.

The last Alien: Covenant poster 20th Century Fox released should have been enough of a warning. A demented egg bathed in eerie green light sat in the midst of shadows in the one sheet, an image that begs you to turn around and run away.

It’s uncertain whether we’ll see another Assassin’s Creed movie, at least on the same scale, but that wouldn’t stop TV from giving it the old college try.
