HBO's Watchmen

HBO has just unveiled a new trailer for Damon Lindelof‘s vision for a Watchmen series. You can find the first trailer here as well, if you missed it.

The series is based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic of the same name. But unlike a traditional adaptation, the series will take a look at the world created as a result of Adrian Veidt’s (Jeremy Irons) plans. Check out the full trailer below.

HBO's Watchmen

Damon Lindelof‘s vision of Watchmen, which will appear on HBO, will not be like the traditional comic book adaptations we are accustomed to seeing. Instead, the series will have a modern day spin on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic, which focused on themes of time, patriotism, lies and deceit, and modernization. So while it won’t be a direct adaptation, it looks like some of those themes will carry over into the show, which we still know very little about.

HBO has released a new trailer that should give us a slight idea of what to expect. Check it out below.

Jeremy Irons Joins Watchmen TV Show Cast

HBO hasn’t ordered Damon Lindelof‘s TV show adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ comic Watchmen to series yet, but they have ordered a pilot episode to aid them in making a decision. And the cast for that pilot episode just added a big name.

It’s being reported that Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons has signed on for the pilot, which would be only the second major TV role for the actor should HBO order it to series. The other being The Borgias.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 3.9 is aptly, or perhaps ironically, named “Closure.” Multiple characters are seeking closure, but sadly, none of them get it (yet). Still, the latest S.H.I.E.L.D. installment is action-packed from the opening to the close.

*WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.*

Wow. INTENSE! That’s the only way I can describe how I feel after watching this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. And a huge reveal at the end only added to the it’s impactfulness. Spoilers ahead!

Everyone is still questioning Coulson (Clark Gregg) because he’s sleeping with the “enemy” — and I mean literally questioning him. Mack (Henry Simmons) flat out asks Coulson if he and Rosalind (Constance Zimmer) are sleeping together. Coulson has a plan, though. He’s freaking Nick Fury’s protege — of course he has a plan! He’s putting into effect “Operation Spotlight,” a tactical mission to uncover the truth behind ATCU’s Inhuman involvement. Coulson believes that Rosalind and the ATCU trust him, but he wants to make sure the feeling is mutual, and Daisy (Chloe Bennet) finally gets it: the camera focuses on her, squinting her eyes and opening her mouth slightly, giving a knowing nod.

It’s been a couple of weeks since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. utilized its full cast of characters as last week’s episode focused solely on Gemma Simmons’ (Elizabeth Henstridge) months long journey on an alien planet, but the show is back in full force this week.

Jumping right into it, here’s your warning for SPOILERS AHEAD for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 3.6 “Among Us Hide…

‘The Lizzie Borden Chronicles’ Interviews Pt 1: Writers Small & Blaney

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles Christina Clea

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles debuted on April 5th, 2015, on Lifetime, as a continuation of the Lifetime movie, Lizzie Borden Took An Ax. It tells the fictionalized story of what life was like for the Borden sisters, Lizzie and Emma (Christina Ricci and Clea DuVall), after the sensational trial of the murder of their parents, of which Lizzie was acquitted. As can be expected, life in Fall River was not ponies and rainbows, but chock full of more death and tons of blood.

Geeks of Doom got the chance to speak with 3 of the writers (Part 2 with David Simkins posts Monday) of this campy series (think 1890s Evil Dead-y), and while they didn’t give us spoilers, they did give us some insight into the story process, Christina Ricci’s dynamite input, and how lucky they were with the fantastic casting.

Movie Review: Limitless

LimitlessLimitless
Directed by Neil Burger
Starring Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, Andrew Howard, Johnny Whitworth, Robert De Niro
Release date: March 18, 2011

 
The unattainable, no matter what “it” is, always has the tendency to attract us. Shiny new things demand our attention, as well as power, authority, money, and freedom. All of this casts an unshakable spell on us as we fluently follow it while we strain to attain the unattainable. We are creatures of instinct built around our primitive behavior and desires, and it is only acceptable that we want more. But what may eclipse all of this is a horrible fierceness found in our hunger and urgency to attain a mark in history: to leave some evidence of our own existence in this world is what drives some men into mad oblivion. Our main character, we first see him standing on the balcony ledge of a New York City penthouse, contemplates this ancient fear that drives him to paranoia and into the abyss of avarice. Limitless, directed by Neil Burger and scripted by Leslie Dixon from the Alan Glynn novel, addresses this fear without due care, severely lacking depth and emotion.
