“The Square is a sanctuary of trust and caring. Within it, we all share equal rights and obligations.” This is the description assigned to the provocative art installation at the center of the latest film from Force Majeure director Ruben Ostlund. For his follow-up, Ostlund takes his aim beyond the confines of marriage for a more expansive, but no less precise satire — this time of a more social nature. The mission statement of the titular artwork in The Square is also (obviously) referring to a figurative communal “safe space,” but Ostlund’s film is anything but.
Resident Evil is ending, and it’s time for another video game movie franchise to rise in its place. Enter Tomb Raider, a series that’s been around in film form since 2001, and is about to get rebooted. Alicia Vikander will be playing titular adventurer Lara Croft, and today we’ve learned that her archaeologist father will be portrayed by none other than The Wire’s Dominic West.
The good news keeps rolling out at Showtime after Twin Peaks finally got its 2017 premiere date. Not only is The Affair renewed for Season 4 weeks ahead of its finale, but so too has Jamie Foxx and SNL alum Jay Pharoah’s White Famous comedy been picked up to series.
Just when you thought there was no way your week could get any more depressing, Showtime’s The Affair wants to say otherwise. Head to prison, enjoy a cadre of disillusioned and broken adults attempting to rebuild their lives, and hang out with Brendan Fraser in the full Season 3 premiere, now online!
Like the best of TV series heavily rooted in flashback, The Affair must eventually give up its central gimmick. Season 3 looks to be that time by the first trailer, as the spoilery sneak peek reveals a major time jump, and even more betrayals to replace its central mystery.
