Collider TV Talk - Preacher Premiere Review, New TV Show Trailers Reviews
On this episode of Collider TV Talk (May 23rd, 2016) Josh Macuga, David Griffin, Sinéad de Vries and Sasha Perl-Raver discuss the following:
 
-Ewan McGregor joins Fargo
 
-Michael Lombardo exits HBO
 
-Cary Fukunaga to direct Stanley Kubrick's Napoleon miniseries for HBO
 
-CBS reveals Star Trek series logo
 
-Superhero rundown
 
-Highlights and lowlights
 
-Pilot Review: Preacher
 
Last week Entertainment Weekly broke the story that Ewan McGregor will be the lead in the 3rd season of FX’s Anthology series Fargo. There is a twist, however; the Trainspotting and Star Wars actor will play two characters, brothers in fact, described with the first brother playing a parking lot king of Minnesota, who sees himself as an American success story; with the other brother balding and pot-bellied; the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder due to the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.
 
HBO announced last week that programming president Michael Lombardo will step down after being with the network for 33 years. His presence can be felt from the glory days of The Sopranos and Six Feet Under to the recent dramatic failures (outside of Game of Thrones) and development disasters of two David Fincher projects and the much maligned Westworld. Variety reported that he wasn’t pushed out, but had been discussing his exit for some time and that he might still have a development deal with the Network.
 
Cary Fukunaga, who directed the first season of the brilliant True Detective and brought to life the first critically acclaimed Netflix original film, The Beasts of No Nation, is in talks to direct a Napoleon miniseries for HBO. This project comes from the long time dream of legendary director Stanley Kubrick, whose family opened up his archive of notes with a original 800 plus page script about the French war monger.
 
SUPERHERO RUNDOWN
 
Chloe Bennett, who plays Daisy formerly Skye on ABC’s Marvel’s: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., participated in a Q&A at Wizard World: Des Moines where she said that Marvel doesn't care or acknowledge their show. She mentioned how the MCU loves to pretend that everything is connected, but then they don’t even connect, discuss, or mention their show in any of the movies in the MCU.
 
At last week’s up-fronts, which we talked a lot about on last week's TV Talk, CW confirmed that next season will have their biggest DC superhero crossover event in the network’s history, thanks to Supergirl’s flight from CBS. CW teased a trailer of what the crossover could look like, and based on this season’s episodes, it’s not a shock that fans rejoiced in the possibility. The trailer also featured quite a few shots of Vixen, who took part in possibly the best episode of Arrow this season, which could be a sign of the 5th DC show at CW in a Vixen stand alone.
 
CBS has released the logo for their new Star Trek series that will be airing on the new VOD platform of CBS All Access; as well as short teaser video that promises new crews, new villains, new heroes, new worlds… they forgot to promise new complaints from fans, but that’s okay.

Collider Movie Talk - New Star Trek Beyond Trailer, First Beauty and The Beast Teaser Trailer

On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (May 23rd, 2016) Mark Ellis, Perri Nemiroff, David Griffin, Ashley Mova discuss the following:

-Box Office Report (Brought to you by AMC Theatres)

-New trailer for Star Trek Beyond

-First teaser released for live action Beauty and the Beast

-Concept Art for Thor Ragnarok released

-Suicide Squad buzz off early screening

-Paramount drops lawsuit against Star Trek fan film

-Mail Bag

It’s Monday which means its time for the weekend box office report brought to you by our friends at AMC theatres. Some angry birds should now be very happy as Sony’s animated movie, Angry Birds, took the No 1 spot at the box office on its first weekend in theatres pulling in $39 million dollars. Down 56% in its third weekend in release, Captain America Civil War took in $33.1 million dollars for the No 2 spot, crossing 1 billion dollars worldwide in the process and becoming the 25th film all time to hit the milestone. Neighbors 2 Sorority Rising took the No 3 spot with $21.8 million dollars, less than half of the $49 million launch of the original Neighbors two years ago. The other new release, The Nice Guys, pulled in $11.3 million for the No 4 spot. And at No 5, The Jungle Book with $11 million.

Paramount Pictures has released the newest trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the Justin Lin directed third movie in the rebooted Star Trek franchise starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and Sofia Boutella. The sequel, from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, finds the crew in the midst of their five-year mission when they run across a villainous alien played by Elba. The trailer premiered during a fan event in Los Angeles where it was announced that Star Trek Beyond will also have its world premiere at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20th.

Disney has released the first sneak peek at their upcoming live-action re-telling of Beauty and the Beast, giving audiences a tiny glimpse at the highly anticipated film based on the animated classic. The film stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson also star.

After Marvel officially confirmed Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban would be joining Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins in Thor Ragnarok, a new piece of concept art was released, featuring a look at what appears to be the character of Hela, played by Blanchett, a powerful villainess who was appointed goddess and ruler of the realms of the dead.

Since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice proved to be a disappointment for Warner Bros. Pictures by not pulling in as much box office as they hoped, the studio is really banking on the success of Suicide Squad to help turn things around. And It looks as though Warner Bros is on the right track with some early reactions hitting the web following a test screening.

In advance of the July release of Star Trek Beyond, it looks as though Paramount is going to try to get itself beyond a serious problem it’s having with the passionate fanbase of Trekkies. During the Star Trek fan event this past weekend, producer JJ Abrams announced that the studio will be dropping the contentious lawsuit against a fan film production known as Star Trek: Axanar, with Abrams quoted as saying the litigation was not the appropriate way to deal with the fans.

There has been a lot of back and forth when it comes to a new entry in the Friday the 13th franchise. From new writers to new directors to “back to the drawing board” and everything in between. However, Platinum Dunes co-founder Brad Fuller has just opened up in an interview about the current status of the film and it looks promising for the die hard fans. Fuller went on to explain that the studio just sent notes back to Guzikowski and they’re now waiting for an updated version of the script.
