The resistance is one man smaller, and it was already a mere trio.
Oh how I hate to use this term, but Colony Season 2 Episode 6 was a transitional hour.
Things were heating up with what's left of the resistance; we were given a sneak peek into the boxes shipping to the Global Authority and learned Nolan doesn't know that much about The Greatest Day.
I'm sorry I missed an episode, but illness overtook me, and I wasn't even moving. Sadly, it was the one in which we lost Thora Birch as Morgan and had her replaced with Bethany Joy Lenz. What a joy, indeed!
Lenz gives the character some much-needed oomph, and the trio finally feels like a reasonable group for Broussard to be leaning on for his technical support.

The Criterion Collection has announced its May offerings, including “Dheepan,” “Ghost World” and a Blu-ray update of “Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles.” Also joining the Collection are Orson Welles’ “Othello,” a new World Cinema Project collector’s set and Yasujirō Ozu’s “Good Morning.” More information below.
“Terry Zwigoff’s first fiction film, adapted from a cult-classic comic by Daniel Clowes, is an idiosyncratic portrait of adolescent alienation that’s at once bleakly comic and wholly endearing. Set during the malaise-filled months following high-school graduation, ‘Ghost World’ follows the proud misfit Enid (Thora Birch), who confronts an uncertain future amid the cultural wasteland of consumerist suburbia. As her cynicism becomes too much to bear even for her best friend, Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson), Enid finds herself drawn to an unlikely kindred »

April showers, bring May flowers, and new releases from The Criterion Collection. I know, it’s not my greatest lede ever, but I want to jump right into what’s coming from the boutique label.
Kicking things off is Terry Zwigoff‘s cult favorite “Ghost World” starring Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson. This one has been in the works for a while now, and while it won’t be coming overflowing with extras, the new 4K restoration should be more than enough to snap this up (along with the lovely cover art, see below).

After teaming up for four Jackass movies together, including the most recent, 2013's Bad Grandpa, Paramount and Johnny Knoxville are back at it again. The actor has signed on to star in, produce and co-write the script for new comedy Action Park. The studio is already eyeing a March production start in South Africa, but no other cast members have been confirmed at this time.
The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news on this project, which Johnny Knoxville will produce alongside Billy Gerber and Derek Freda. Johnny Knoxville will also co-write the script with John Altshuler and Dave Krinsky, who are best known for co-creating the hit HBO series Silicon Valley with Mike Judge. Tim Kirkby is set to direct, having most recently directed the pilot episode of Amazon Studios' hit series Fleabag.
