Extant (Wednesdays, 9/8C) is the new big summer series for CBS. It makes much of two unaligned ideas – astronaut Molly Woods returns to Earth after a thirteen-month solo mission, pregnant; her husband, John Woods, has developed an artificial intelligence in human form called humantics (human-robotics, get it?).
CBS’ new Steven Spielberg series, Extant, will be streamed on Amazon Prime exclusively thanks to a content licencing deal announced today. The serialized drama, starring Halle Berry, will be available to Amazon Prime subscribers four days after each new episode airs. The series will be accessible through any compatible Amazon Instant Video device, including: Kindle Fire HDX, Kindle Fire HD, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation and the Wii. Episodes will also be available for purchase and download exclusively at Amazon Instant Video.

Autumn always seems to bring the most interesting and challenging films – and Cloud Atlas, from a novel that even its author described as ‘unfilmable’ is definitely both. By slipping from one arc to another (six in all) repeatedly, filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer link tales of characters who are bound together through past, present and future to create a rich tapestry of visual styles and philosophical depth.
Ever since Halle Berry won an Oscar® for her amazing performance in Monster’s Ball, her career choices haven’t been all that wonderful. With Things We Lost in the Fire, she has found a project that gives her a chance to play a character who moves through a full range of emotions – and allows her to play off Benicio Del Toro, who gives one of the finest performances of his career.
