So, when Arthur returns it’s as a twelve-year old public school kid?
While The Kid Who Would Be King sounds like it could be a grade Z waste of time, the talent behind it suggests it could be a surprisingly good movie – Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) wrote and directed; Louis Ashbourne Serkis (SS-GB, Taboo) is Alex; Patrick Stewart (ST:TNG, Ted) is Merlin, and Rebecca Ferguson (the last two Mission: Impossible films) is Morgana.
The Kid Who Would Be King opens on January 25, 2019.
I hate this silly and juvenile idea people have that somehow giving something an R Rating will automatically make a movie better, or the only reason a film sucked was because it was PG or PG-13 instead of R. This has been one of the ongoing complaints from fans of Wolverine for years. Logan is the R-Rated Wolverine film fans have been begging for is finally upon us. But is it any good?
It takes less than half the new trailer (in either green or red band) for us to learn that the little girl that old man Logan and the aged Professor X are protecting is a very familiar character at a very young age – and that they might just protecting others from her, as well.
Note the amusing – and thought-provoking – way Logan ties in to the X-Men cinematic universe. Very, very clever indeed!
Logan opens on March 2nd. Hold onto your hats and check out both red and green band trailers after the break.
Green Room is a very simple horror story with not a trace of the supernatural – and by simple, I mean it’s a straightforward linear tale that has the simplest of plots: a hardcore band lacking funds gets a last-minute gig at a backwoods skinhead bar and just before they can collect their money, one of them sees something they should not have seen.
Blunt Talk (Starz, Saturdays, 9/8C) is both the title of the ongoing series featuring a well-intentioned British talk show host in America and the low-rated nightly news and views show he hosts on minor cable network UBM. The series was created (and mostly written by) Jonathan Ames (Bored to Death) and stars Sir Patrick Stewart as Walter Blunt.
The concept is that Blunt, while anchoring a news show and attempting to dispense wisdom along with the news, has a very chaotic life – in which he continually undermines himself in spite of the best efforts of Blunt Talk’s production team and his faithful valet.
Starz has set the series premiere of Blunt Talk (above) and second season premiere of Survivor’s Remorse for Saturday, August 22nd.
Blunt Talk, about an expatriate Brit talk show host who thinks he’s in America to share his wisdom and wit – but is mostly misguided on all levels – premieres at 9/8C.
Survivor’s Remorse, about a basketball phenom who has gotten out of the ‘hood with a big NBA contract and is trying to not forget his roots while attempting to negotiate the many levels of his new life, follows at 9:30/8:30C.
Starz has ordered two ten-episode seasons of Blunt Talk from Media Rights Capital. The series, from the minds of Seth MacFarlane and Jonathan Ames, is a bout a transplanted British cable news host who uses the show as a platform to tell Americans how they should live, think and behave. Patrick Stewart will play the lead, Walter Blunt.
The series is set to premiere in 2015. Check out the press release for more details (including Stewart’s take on playing Blunt).
