Hardcore Henry premiered at TIFF last fall under the title Hardcore, and swiftly inspired a bidding war over distribution rights for the innovative first-person POV action flick. Directed by Ilya Naishuller and executive-produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), Hardcore takes the concept of first-person shooter video games and transforms it into one relentless, action-packed and gnarly film that’s sure to draw comparisons to RoboCop.
PlayStation’s Powers adaptation may not have wowed as much as other superhero series these days, but Season 2 has definitely upped the ante, and not just by invoking its Jessica Jones connection. Powers goes epic in its first 2016 trailer, including a new Retro Girl, stars the likes of Tricia Helfer and Michael Madsen, and an all-out uprising.
Hardcore is premiering at TIFF this week, and the first trailer has arrived to give you a sense of what this new action film has to offer. The conceit of Hardcore is that the film is shown entirely in first-person POV, but that’s not all it has going for it — co-starring Sharlto Copley, the film is incredibly violent and bloody, and the trailer is appropriately NSFW, of course.
Sony PlayStation’s first original series, Powers managed to handcuff a second season to debut in 2016, for which the first season finale left a staggering mystery. Now at Comic-Con 2015, the Powers panel reveals the addition of fan-favorite writer Ben Edlund, some candid reflection on Season 1, and a major new superhero to boot.
After years spent in development hell just getting to air in the first place, PlayStation’s Powers TV series adaptation is officially here to stay. The gaming network has confirmed that Powers will return for Season 2 in 2016, keeping Detectives Walker and Pilgrim in the superhero game another year.
After years of on-again off-again development, Brian Michael Bendis’ iconic Powers has at last come to life as PlayStation’s first original TV series. The first episode has made its way online, along with a brand-new trailer for the full season to come!
The technology in Neil Blomkamp’s movies is so fully realized and intricately detailed that it feels like another one of his characters. Now Blomkamp’s made Chappie, a film where that’s literally true in the form of a police robot given the gift of human consciousness. The result is one giant metaphor for itself; a story of the world’s first true artificial intelligence and how it is almost corrupted by violence, presented in a movie where any semblance of serious consideration of what it means to be alive is drowned out by gunfire, explosions, and macho posing.
We’re admittedly intrigued to see what Sony comes up with for its first PlayStation original TV series, adapting Brian Michael Bendis’ revered superhero comic Powers. We’ve seen the trailer and a few photos, but the latest eight-minute preview goes behind-the-scenes to deliver our most comprehensive look at the world of Powers before its March 10 debut.
Sony PlayStation’s forthcoming entry into the original content arms race, ‘Powers’ has flexed plenty of footage and photos of its impending premiere, but with little sense of how the Brian Michael Bendis superhero drama would be rolled out. Now, Sony has revealed a March start date for the Sharlto Copley-starring ‘Powers,’ including its release schedule and a brand-new poster.
