Before Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss, The Wachoswkis had some very different cast members in mind for The Matrix. The directors initially offered the roles of Neo, Morpheus and Trinity to Will Smith, Sean Connery and Janet Jackson, all of whom turned down the film. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which swallows a big, red pill with The Matrix!

The majority of Hannibal Season 3 press has focused on the devlish doc’s new life on the lam alongside Gillian Anderson’s Bedelia du Maurier, leaving a number of Season 2 finale “Mizumono” fates in jeopardy. Now, a gorgeous new round of photos from the season would seem to confirm the finale bloodbath survivors, but with a potential twist.

The second season of Bryan Fuller's NBC 'Hannibal' ended in such a way as to leave the third season hanging in dire straits, with a difficult guessing game of who survived to hunt the good Dr. Lecter another day. And while Laurence Fishburne's involvement with ABC's 'Black-Ish' made Jack Crawford among the more questionable survivals, Fishburne confirms he will return for 'Hannibal' season 3, albeit in a slightly different role.

'The Signal 2': "There Could Be a Crazy Sequel," Says Director William Eubank

Writer-director William Eubank always wanted to make a film that turned audiences on their heads, and he’s done that with ‘The Signal,’ a film which, on the surface, sees a trio of teens chasing down a hacker but are forever changed by what they encounter. While moviegoers will surely be left with just as many questions leaving the theater as they had coming in, the intricacies of this mind-bender are not something Eubank would like to discuss – at least not yet – as he has plans, however far back in his mind for the moment, of exploring these answers in ‘The Signal 2.’

The 'Hannibal' season 2 finale "Mizumono" got unexpectedly (or expectedly) bloody this past weekend, while series creator Bryan Fuller already assured us of things getting even wilder in season 3 with the good doctor on the run. Rather than chew off our own faces in anticipation, wouldn't you prefer a delectable eight-minute gag reel of season 2 to hold us over?

'The Signal' Review

One might exit the theater after seeing 'The Signal' and feel compelled to run down a list of its seeming influences. 'Chronicle,' 'Dark City,' 'The Island' and John Byrne's acclaimed 'Next Men' comic of the early 1990s all spring to mind, not to mention scores of movies where a bunch of teens foolishly go somewhere dangerous and isolated when logic says they should turn around and run. But in the thick of it, William Eubank's low-budget sci-fi/horror/thriller is so focused on keeping you in the dark (despite its bright white walls) that these influences don't seem so obvious. The simplicity and elliptical nature of the script and the empathy from the actors (namely relative newcomer Brenton Thwaites) sustains this crafty and modestly budgeted film's hook. You kinda sorta know what's going on from the start, but the movie is sharp enough to toy with you, making it a good deal of fun.

While we're more concerned with ABC's renewal of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and an official series order for 'Agent Carter,' the network had plenty more to offer in advance of its Upfront presentation next week. Not only will such staples as 'Modern Family' and 'Scandal' return, but freshman comedy 'The Goldbergs' has officially earned an additional season, in addition to such pilots as 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Karen Gillan's 'Selfie.'
