A classic dresser. First one bad, then one good news from the Home Box Office. Of course - depending on which angle you look at. But anyway, HBO announced yesterday that they still commissioned a spin-off project from the world of Game of Thrones.
Casey Bloys, president of the program at HBO, yesterday famously announced a new series to be directed by "Game of Thrones" veteran Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal (Colony) to be executive producer and showrunner. The Boys have confirmed that the new series will be titled House of the Dragon, but also that the story will follow the ideas of Bryan Cogman and the book by George R.R. Martin.
Recall, a few months ago George R.R. Martin and Ryan Condal wrote the script 300 years before those we saw in "Game of Thrones" at a time when the Targaryen family was afraid and trembling of Westeros and when dragons flew freely across the continent. The story will follow the beginnings of the dynasty and will be based on Martin's book "Fire & Blood" which in turn follows Aegon Targaryen, creator of the Iron Throne. Ryan Condal is known as the scriptwriter for the USA's canceled series, Colony.
Of the two potential projects, this one is ... a little more interesting, but we'll see how it all turns out. House of the Dragon has earned ten episodes for the first season, which will not nearly adorn the small screens.
After the exciting finale of the first season, which ended with a vicious cliff-hanger, the stakes are even higher for the heroes of the second season of Netflix's Kingdom series. As the first teaser poster for the new season of a combination of Korean historical drama and horror genre promotes - death is coming and the fight is just beginning! The poster shows Ju Ji Hoon as Prince Lee Chang, who has to deal with a horde of oncoming zombies. The poster also revealed when Kingdom returns to Netflix - March. In 2020, we can't wait either, because the first season was a really pleasant surprise. In case you missed it, you can find a recap of the first season here. Given that the new arrival date is now well known, we hope to have a look at the first teaser soon. Before the poster, only two photographs were published, one of which was used in the enlarged and slightly refined edition for the teaser poster itself.
In short, the Kingdom series is based on the Korean webcomic Burning Hell - The Land of the Gods. The comic is signed by Kim Eun-hee, a well-known and acclaimed writer for drama and script in Korea. Kim Eun-hee also adapted and co-wrote the script for the series. In addition to the really good storyline, there is a phenomenal cast, beautiful scenery and photography as well as an overall wonderful design, so it's not hard to see why our series has grown so much to our hearts. And she managed to do it all in just six episodes of the first season.
The second season is still in production, which officially began on February 2019 when the cast came together for the first time to read. The new season will have six episodes as the first one. Interestingly, it was originally intended to be a mini-series of eight episodes, but Netflix then decided to split the series into two seasons, and with that, we got more episodes.
Season Two returns Ju Ji-Hoon (Asure: The City of Madness, Antique) as Prince Lee Chang, Bae Doo-na (Sense8, Cloud Atlas) as Seo-Bi, Ryoo Seung-Ryong (Miracle in Cell No. 7 , All About My Wife) as Cho, Kim Hye-Jun (Matrimonial Chaos, Just Between Lovers) as Queen Cho, Kim Sang-Ho (Moby Dick, Doctor Stranger) as Moo-Young, Kim Sung-Kyu (The Outlaws, Tunnel ) as Young-Shin, Heo Jun-Ho (Demon Empire, Hwasango) as An Hyun and Jun Suk-Ho (Intruders, Lucid Dream) as Jo Beom-Pal. The new roles will be interpreted by Park Byung Eun and Kim Tae Hoon.
The sweet boy who conquered cinemas around the world in 1982 with his role in the movie E.T., Henry Thomas, is 48 today and is fighting a battle with alcohol addiction. Namely, the former child star completely faltered due to the pressure of fame.
37 years ago, he played the boy Eliot in the famous Spielberg movie and even was nominated for a Golden Globe and received the Best Young Actor of the Year award.
Last year, he returned to the big door by starring in the series The Haunting of Hill House, which was voted the most terrifying series of all time.
However, the happiness did not last long, as he was arrested Monday in Washington for drunk driving.
According to police, there were no unusual smells or indications that Henry was drunk in the car, but they stopped him for speeding.
It was only when he interacted with the police officer that it emerged that Henry was intoxicated and taken to a police station for sobriety.
The next morning, the actor was released from prison, but he is known to be in a long fight with alcohol, so it is assumed that this unpleasant experience with the police will not deter him from further reaching for a bottle.

Disney + is finally rolling out next month and we will once have a chance to watch various episodes of the Marvel Movie Universe. One of the many series announced earlier this year is She-Hulk, which will accompany Jennifer Walters, Bruce Banner's cousin in the Marvel Comics. A lawyer by day, Walters gained her powers after receiving an emergency blood transfusion on Banner immediately after the accident. Currently, there is no news as to who will play the titular role, but we are now rumored that the series will see the return of Liv Tyler, who played Betty Ross opposite Edward Norton's Hulk in The Incredible Hulk movie. According to CBR.com journalist Daniel Richtman, who recently reported the following?
"And while it's still early, I've also heard that they plan to have General Ross in [She-Hulk] and even maybe bring Liv Tyler back as Betty Ross!"
And while this is obviously not one hundred percent certain, it would be nice to see Liv Tyler back in the MCU again for the first time since 2008. As for General Ross, William Hurt has returned to playing the character several times, so it seems likely that he might appear in She-Hulk. After The Incredible Hulk, he appeared in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame during the scene of Tony Stark's funeral.
Other Marvel series on Disney + include The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Loki, WandaVision and What If…? Apart from them, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight.
Sony's Masters of the Universe has been in the making for some time now, and now there's a good chance the movie might end up on Netflix. The Hollywood Reporter reports an article claiming that Sony Pictures President Tom Rothman is considering selling the project to this streaming network instead of releasing it to theaters. At these times, THR says negotiations between Sony and Netflix are in the beginning stages, though if the deal goes through, Sony could be the first major studio to make a pact with one of the largest streaming services.
After a long wait, Sony's Masters of the Universe, starring Noah Centineo (To All the Boys Loved Before) as He-Man, has been released on March 2021. Fans of this fantasy franchise were delighted with the news that He-Man is back in theaters, though now it seems like Sony is not sure about gambling on the success of the project. If the movie is sold to Netflix, it means that Sony will certainly earn something from it. However, if Masters of the Universe turns out to be a hit, it could be Sony's head. It all comes down to quality and audacity, and unfortunately for He-Man and the company, Sony is shaken when it comes to gambling on the mass appeal of the movie.
As far as we're concerned, selling Masters of the Universe movie to Netflix sounds like a good idea to us. Finally, this streaming platform is already in the possession of the animated series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, which will launch its fourth season on Netflix on November 05 this year. Better yet, Netflix is making an animated He-Man series called Masters of the Universe: Revelation with Kevin Smith as the creator. Smith's animated Prince Adam animated adventures plan to continue where the original animated series has stood, which has remained the pinnacle of pop culture for generations.
He-Man, aka Prince Adam, is the heir to the throne of Eternia. With his magical Power Sword in his hands, Prince Adam can transform himself into He-Man to defend his kingdom and Castle Grayskull, the source of his powers, from the evil sorcerer Skeletor and his group.
Adam and Aaron Nee (Band of Robbers) will direct the film as scripted by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum (Men in Black: International).
Since the sudden announcement in August that The Matrix is indeed rebooting for the fourth movie with the return of screenwriter-director Lana Wachowski, it's been quiet on this part of the simulated universe - but it seems that the sequel to the sci-fi saga has found one of its leading stars. According to Variety, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II - perhaps best known for his role as Black Mante in the Aquaman film - has been cast in one of the main roles of the Matrix film and will join Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss in the film.
Abdul-Mateen's character has not yet been confirmed, but early rumors surrounding the movie suggest that he might be playing the young Morpheus - that's how flexible The Matrix 4 movie is. It is mentioned that he could also play someone closely related to Morpheus, such as a son or nephew. Whether this is indeed the case or not, we will have to wait to find out the official confirmation.
In addition to Aquaman, Abdul-Mateen was recently seen in Jordan Peele's us, starring Adelaide's father in the opening scenes of the film. He has also appeared in The Handmaid's Tale and Black Mirror series, and we will soon have the opportunity to watch him in the new HBO series Watchmen.
The original Matrix and its two sequels combined earned a total of $ 1.6 billion at the box office. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss portrayed their characters in all three chapters of the Matrix series, each directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski.
Lana Wachowski directs The Matrix 4 from a screenplay she co-wrote with Alexander Hemon and David Mitchell. The film is set in the roles of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. The Matrix 4 is reportedly set to begin production in 2020, with Lana Wachowski also co-producing with Grant Hill.
Matrix 4 has no release date yet.
We've watched a new horror movie based on Stephen King's and Joe Hill's book of the same name, In the Tall Grass. Read our review of the movie In the Tall Grass in the article.
After hearing the boy's cry for help, his brother and sister go to a vast field of tall grass in Kansas but soon discover that there may be no way out ... and that something evil is lurking in it
'In the Tall Grass' is a book by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, first published in two parts, the first in June / July and the second in August 2012, marking their second collaboration, following a book from In 2009, Throttle.
This is the third Netflix adaptation (Gerald's Game, 1922) of Stephen King's book, which he co-wrote with his son, Joe Hill. And while I've already written about being a huge fan of King, I'm not really thrilled with the works that he wrote with his son Hill. Interestingly, Hill's books are great when working on them on their own. Given that the original material, In the Tall Grass is nothing special, it's hard then that this Netflix adaptation can do better.
In the Tall Grass actually looks pretty good, even though almost the entire movie takes place in tall green grass. A good, tense and creepy atmosphere was created, which, alongside the actors, was the best thing about the movie.
The cast is also very good, especially to highlight the most famous of them, Patrick Wilson (Conjuring), who has many times shown himself to be an excellent actor.
As I wrote above, the story is not good. The mystery was created at the very beginning, with this strange, mysterious and interesting thing, let's call it a maze of tall grass, but besides, almost everything is pretty bad. We have almost no explanation for the things that happen in the movie, and the craziness in the movie grows more and more. Plus, while the beginning is good, interesting, tense and creepy, with a few solid jump scare scenes, it takes us 40 minutes of live boredom and lots, lots of green grass. Towards the end again a little better, more interesting and tense, but with a bunch of things not explained again. It should also be added that the characters and the movie are mostly idiots.
The Netflix movie In the Tall Grass was certainly not helped by the frequent outbursts of the main characters' feelings, as well as the actually quite irritating music, which should have scared us. There are also some beings that I have nothing to say about because very little is generally known about them. We can assume what, or who they might be, but that is all, we have no real explanation.
In the Tall Grass was never intended to be a big blockbuster movie, unfortunately, it didn't offer much in the story, but for one to two views, in full dark and very loud, not even that bad. Mostly I like to look at all of King's adaptations, and what it was like, In the Tall Grass is a golden mean somewhere. It can be seen that King, as well as various studios, want to make the most of the popularity that King regained in Hollywood after the 2017 IT Chapter One movie, since we've had Gerald's Game, 1922, Pet Sematary, IT Chapter Two and now In the Tall Grass, and the Mr. Mercedes, NOS4A2 and Castle Rock (by clicking on the link you will go for a review, as you can see, we are really following all of King's adaptations). We are also getting Doctor Sleep, Salem's Lot, The Long Walk, From a Buick 8 and the mini-series The Stand. Other adaptations are also being talked about.
Ben Affleck ended his role as Batman, however, this did not stop certain DCEU fans from hoping to see the actor in a solo Batman movie one day. One dedicated fan took existing Batman footage and put it into a teaser trailer of what they might expect from an Affleck-run Batman movie. YouTuber Jon Arryn Garza uses footage that showcases a large amount of current DCEU villains, such as Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Joker (Jared Leto) while having various encounters with the Knight of Darkness.
This fan video trailer also uses Two-Face (Aaron Eckhart) and Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy) from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, before the fan's Batman: Arkham Asylum logo appears on the screen. Then, some type of post-credits scene shows us Liam Neeson's R'as Al Ghul for a second.
This video is very likely derived from cinematographer Robert Richardson's recent statements about the film, where he revealed that much of the film would take place inside the iconic DC Comics site, Arkham Asylum. Richardson was hired to work with Affleck on film, but they eventually parted ways with the project - he has since been replaced by Rogue One cinematographer and longtime Matt Reeves collaborator Craig Fraser.
Ben Affleck also confirmed in an interview that the film would definitely not lack an opponent, thus only further confirming the statement of cinematographer Richardson.
The Batman directed by Matt Reeves comes to theaters on June 25, 2021.
Check out the great fan teaser trailer for a solo Batman movie with Ben Affleck in the lead below, which we will hardly ever get a chance to see.
