Suicide Squad 2′ First Draft Is Finished According To Writer

For the small majority of us who really enjoyed the first Suicide Squad, you’ll be happy to know that according to writer Todd Stashwick, the script for the sequel has officially been completed. The movie centering around the Worst Heroes Ever wasn’t received too well by critics, but I still stand by my opinion that it was a solid film. Albeit some things they could improve on, but all in all, stronger than some films in the DCEU. No matter how you feel about it and no matter how delayed it is, it’s still happening according to Stashwick. “We have

Shantel VanSanten Joins Joel Kinnaman for Apple’s Untitled Space Race Series

For me, Shantel VanSanten will always be Patty Spivot from The Flash’s second season. Currently, on the recently canceled show Shooter, VanSanten has another project in her line of sights. Joining Altered Carbon’s Joel Kinnaman, VanSanten has been cast in Apple’s upcoming space race drama series by Ronald D. Moore. This untitled series will take place in a world where the global space race from the 60s never ended. Exploring the possibilities and advances our society could have made, Kinnaman will star as a top NASA astronaut named Edward Baldwin. VanSanten will play Baldwin’s wife, Karen Baldwin.

Actor Spotlight: Joel Kinnaman

While the Skarsgards are probably the most well-known band of brothers to come out of Sweden, another name you should know who hails from this Scandinavian country is Joel Kinnaman. Swedish-American, Kinnaman is known for such roles as Steven Holder in The Killing, Alex Murphy in RoboCop, and Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad. But, Kinnaman also has such projects as House of Cards and under his belt is a very good career in Sweden, which he left to focus on becoming a star in America.

A Very General Review: ‘Altered Carbon’ (PS, I Loved It)

While the Sci-Fi genre isn’t something I normally gravitate to when picking a movie or a show, there’s no arguing against the fact that Sci-Fi is making a comeback. Between Star Trek: Discovery, Cloverfield Paradox, and more, this category is popular and gaining momentum rapidly. Do you ever feel like you’ve watched everything on Netflix and are in desperate need for something else? That’s how I felt when Altered Carbon was released on February 2, 2018. Based on a novel that I’ve never even heard of previously, I wondered if this was something for me. The internet heavily promoted this series and every time I

Amazon’s ‘Hanna’ Has Just Finished Filming

If you’re a fan of the crime drama The Killing, like me; you’re not too happy that Netflix decided to recently take the series off their streaming services. This included the fourth season, which was actually a Netflix original. For what reason, we don’t know, but the world has suddenly become grim now that we can’t just switch on Netflix to binge-watch The Killing for the countless time. For those wanting to see Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos together again on screen, fret not. Kinnaman and Enos have been working recently on Amazon’s newest project, Hanna. Hanna is based on the

‘Altered Carbon’ Renewed For a Second Season; Casts Antony Mackie as Lead

New season. New sleeve. Altered Carbon’s official twitter sent out today, announcing the renewal for a second season. The sci-fi show based on the book by Richard Morgan will return to Netflix with eight episodes, instead of the ten it had in season one. Premiering on February 2, 2018, this wildly imaginative show gauged mixed reactions, though; if you ask me, is definitely one of my favorites on the online streaming service. Primarily played by Joel Kinnaman, the show centers around Takeshi Kovacs as he awakes 250 years after originally being sentenced to a lifetime of being essentially decommissioned. We
