New Poster for Child 44, Starring Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace


Summit Entertainment has just released a new propaganda-style poster for director Daniel Espinosa’s latest, Child 44, which you can check out in the gallery below! The film, based on Tom Rob Smith’s 2008 bestseller, stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Vincent Cassel.

A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili (Kinnaman), who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.”

Produced by Ridley Scott and featuring an adapted screenplay by Richard Price, Child 44 opens in theaters on April 17.

Lady Sif Set to Appear Once Again on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

sif shield header

Marvel Entertainment (via TV Insider) has announced that Jaimie Alexander will reprise her role of Lady Sif in an upcoming episode of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” having previously appeared in Episode 15. The character will appear on Earth without her trademark armor or memory, having no idea who she or Thor is.

“Sif has no idea who Thor is or that she serves a king, and we’re going to have fun with that,” says executive producer Jeffrey Bell. “It’ll give us some much-needed humor in a season that’s been full of betrayal and death. Sif can’t even recall who she came here from Asgard to stop, but Agent Coulson [Clark Gregg] and his team will try to help her figure all that out…We’ve been dealing a lot with space aliens and Inhumans in our last few episodes—things our Earth-bound heroes just don’t know much about. They need help understanding what’s really going on. Sif’s memory—what’s left of it—will come in very handy.”

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will return to ABC on March 3. The series airs Tuesdays at 9 P.M. EST. Though unconfirmed, Sif will likely also appear in Thor: Ragnarok, which is scheduled for release on July 28, 2017.

But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.

New Promo for Showtime’s Happyish, Starring Steve Coogan

Happyish is coming to Showtime

Showtime has given us a first look at their new series “Happyish,” starring Oscar and Golden Globe-nominee Steve Coogan, Kathryn Hahn and Emmy Award-winner and Golden Globe-nominee Bradley Whitford, which you can check out below!

Coogan stars in the lead role of Thom Payne, a 44-year-old man whose world is thrown into disarray when his 25-year-old “wunderkind” boss arrives, saying things like “digital,” “social” and “viral.” Is he in need of a “rebranding,” or does he just have a “low joy ceiling?” Maybe pursuing happiness is a fool’s errand? Maybe, after 44 years on this ludicrous planet, settling for happyish is the best one can expect.

“Happyish,” which shoots in New York, will premiere on April 26th at 9:30 p.m. ET./PT, immediately following “Nurse Jackie” airing at 9 p.m.

“Happyish” was created, written and executive produced by critically acclaimed author and regular “This American Life” contributor Shalom Auslander.

Kwapis’ producing partner Alexandra Beattie will co-executive produce, under their In Cahoots banner.

Derek Zoolander is bringing Blue Steel on a European fling according to Italian site Bad Taste (gratzi to Andrea Bedeschi for the tip), who report that the Mayor of Rome Ignazio Marino has announced that the sequel Zoolander 2 will shoot for 12 weeks in and around the famed Cinecittà Studios this spring.

The Mayor met with star Ben Stiller, who is set to reprise his role as the dimwitted male supermodel, with Justin Theroux co-writing and directing.

“Rome returns to the center of the international destinations of great cinema,” Ignazio stated.

Additionally, Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson are all-but-confirmed to return as Mugatu and Hansel, respectively, with Stiller’s wife Christine Taylor also coming back as Matilda and Oscar-winner Penélope Cruz along for the ride as well. Jonah Hill and supermodel Cara Delevingne have also been rumored for roles in the past.

The original film grossed only $60 million worldwide in 2001, but the film became a fast hit on DVD and plans for a sequel have been discussed for years. Stiller will produce Zoolander 2 alongside Stuart Cornfeld for Paramount Pictures.
