Daryl Hannah: Hollywood still male-dominated

23 June 2015 3:40 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Daryl Hannah thinks Hollywood is still ''male-dominated''. The 54-year-old film star believes female stars are cast to be figures of male fantasy in films, but hasn't lost all hope as she believes the industry has the ''potential'' to express what it is to be male or female in a ''transformative way''. She said: ''It's a male-dominated industry. It's just a bunch of guys saying: 'Let's make the girl young, and sexy, and hot'. So yeah, of course it's exploitative. And that's unfortunate because it has the potential to be really transformative in expressing the human condition.'' Although the 'Splash' actress - who famously dated Neil Young and John F Kennedy Jr. - was seen as pin-up girl in her prime, she has now revealed she felt like she was being mocked by people who thought she was attractive, because years of bullying had made her believe she had a ''weird'' appearance. »

Daryl Hannah: ‘It’s scary being in solitary’

21 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the 80s, the Hollywood star was best known as a mermaid in Splash and a replicant in Blade Runner. More recently, she has concentrated on green issues, and her protests have landed her in jail. So does Sense8, her new Netflix series with the Wachowskis, herald a comeback?

On the hottest day of the year so far, Daryl Hannah appears like a mirage outside her Paris hotel. She has been window-shopping and people-watching, but the heat is intense and her foundation is flaking. She explains that she likes taking walks in the city because this was where it all started; it is where her parents met. Without Paris, she says, she would not even exist.

Hannah is in town to plug her role in Sense8, an audacious, globe-hopping Netflix series about fluid identities and the shadowy links between the present and the past. As luck would have it, the »

'Sense8' Star Daryl Hannah Explains Why The Wachowskis are Real-Life Sensates

10 June 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Daryl Hannah has been known globally since the early 1980s thanks to breakout roles in "Blade Runner" and "Splash," but it was the Wachowskis who gave her an opportunity to see the world like never before. As the mysterious Angelica of "Sense8," Hannah traveled to all nine filming locations (including Chicago, Korea and Nairobi) to connect with the show's deliberately diverse cast of "sensates" caught up in a global conspiracy; an experience that was life-changing for her.  Read More: Watch: The Wachowskis and Netflix Expand Your Mind With 'Sense8' Trailer Indiewire had seen the first three episodes when we sat down with Hannah at a press day a few weeks before the show premiered on Netflix. Below, Hannah reveals what she thought when she first read the script, which cast member she taught to ride a bike and why working with the Wachowskis is like being a "sensate" yourself. »

From the minds of Lana and Andy Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski comes the 12-episode, mind-bending Netflix series Sense8, about eight people connected all around the world who, after experiencing a violent vision, are able to see, feel, hear and talk to each other, as if they are in the same place. While they are being hunted by an organization that is out to do them harm, these eight individuals from very different backgrounds must quickly adapt to this new ability and to each other, and figure out what all of this means for the future of humanity. At the press day for this thriller that explores identity, connectivity and humanity, actress Daryl Hannah (who plays an otherworldly figure named Angel) spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about what attracted her to this highly ambitious project, why she was drawn to the Wachowskis and their style of artistic expression, »

Sense8 season 1 review

8 June 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a look at the Wachowski's latest outing, the Netflix sci-fi drama Sense8. Spoilers lie ahead...

This is a spoiler-y review.

A collaboration between the Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski sounded almost too good to be true, but Netflix delivered last Friday with the release of the entire first season of Sense8. If Daredevil gave genre fans an incentive to subscribe to Netflix, Sense8 gave them a reason to stick around.

The first season of Sense8 may not pack the same entertainment power as Daredevil, but Sense8’s long drawn – some might even say overdrawn – character-driven moments and slowly unfolding plot make the series almost as worthy of binge watching.

The premise of the series sounds like rehash of material that has already been seen countless times in genre fiction over the past three decades. Who has any interest left for yet another psychic powers story? Yet, from its first moment, »

Sense8: Will You Stay Connected to The Wachowskis' Netflix Thriller?

5 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you had any doubt that Sense8 was partially the product of Matrix directors Andy and Lana Wachowski, the first episode of Netflix’s trippy thriller likely put that uncertainty to rest.

Co-exec-produced by The Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski (Murder, She Wrote, Babylon 5), the mysterious drama — which hit the streaming giant on Friday — centers on eight individuals across the globe who are connected by a strange vision.

Before we get your thoughts on the series premiere, here’s a brief recap of what went down in the debut hour:

18 Things To Know About SENSE8

4 June 2015 4:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Love it or hate it – and if the early reviews are any indication, people are going to have very strong reactions to it, one way or another – Sense8 is a lot to digest. The 12-episode, mind-bending Netflix series is about eight people connected all around the world who, after experiencing a violent vision, are able to see, feel, hear and talk to each other, as if they are in the same place. While they are being hunted by an organization that is out to do them harm, these eight individuals from very different backgrounds must quickly adapt to this new ability and to each other, and figure out what all of this means for the future of humanity.

Sense8 Season 1 Review

4 June 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After watching three hours of the Wachowskis’ maddening, mesmerizing Netflix series Sense8, I still don’t feel completely qualified to commend or condemn it. After all, one cannot fairly judge a tapestry on its artistic merit before the strands have been interwoven. And like Cloud Atlas before it, Sense8 is a work of sprawling ambition, one that must be absorbed whole to be fully understood. The series is globe-trotting, mind-bending science-fiction that flits between the lives of eight disparate individuals, all inexplicably connected through a shared consciousness, and it’s just as confounding and captivating as that description would suggest.

After three hours, the show is still taking its first steps. Some will instinctively tear it apart in its infancy, calling the series overblown and needlessly perplexing, and they may be proven correct. After all, the Wachowskis don’t have the best track record. The incredible, indelible Cloud Atlas aside, »

Gender and Identity in the Wachowskis' "Sense8" on Netflix

4 June 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ever since "The Matrix," I’ve been hoping the Wachowskis (formerly the Wachowski brothers) would do something else really worthwhile. I’m not sure if the directing duo's "Sense8" (on which they teamed up with "Babylon 5" creator J. Michael Straczynski) is it, but I think it comes closer than any of their recent films, and definitely supports the idea that the small screen is where a lot of the most adventurous storytelling is happening right now. I'm also not sure I can entirely explain what their new Netflix series is about, but I'll try: Eight strangers around the globe are psychically linked after experiencing violent visions involving a woman (Daryl Hannah) unknown to any of them. ("Sense8" will be available for streaming on Netflix starting June 5.) The eight characters are about as diverse as you can get in terms of location, culture, race, economic situation, sexual orientation and occupation. »

Final concept trailer for Sense8 from the Wachowskis

4 June 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Coming to Netflix from tomorrow (Friday 5th June), pretty much everywhere we believe, is the new 12-episode season of the Wachowski‘s Sense8, which revolves around the lives of eight people from all over the planet.

The series is also co-created by J. Michael Straczynski (World War Z), so we’re probably in for a bit of a treat.

We have a final minute-long arty trailer for the show, which you’ll be able to watch in our player below. First though, here’s the official blurb about the show.

From the unparalleled creative minds of The Wachowskis (“The Matrix” trilogy,?“Cloud Atlas”) and J. Michael Straczynski (Clint Eastwood’s “Changeling,” “World War Z”), as well as executive producer Grant Hill (“The Matrix” trilogy, “Cloud Atlas”), Sense8 is a gripping story of eight people from around the world whose lives are suddenly and inexplicably connected in a fight for their own survival. »

Review: Netflix's 'Sense8' makes no sense at first, but will it by binge's end?

4 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Sense8" is a show that could only exist on Netflix (or another streaming service like it), because no human would have the patience to watch it weekly. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Among its originals, Netflix has some great shows ("Orange Is the New Black" and "BoJack Horseman," to name two) and some lesser ones, but good or bad, the Netflix series only occasionally seem made with the Netflix distribution model in mind. Though they have serialized elements, most of them are structured in the exact same way as their counterparts that air in a traditional pattern on cable or broadcast TV. (Ditto most of Amazon's originals.) Previous attempts to design shows explicitly for the streaming/binge world — like Mitch Hurwitz's aborted plan to make "Arrested Development" season 4 viewable in any order — haven't worked out, and I'm still waiting for someone to find a way to explicitly »

Why you should watch Netflix's Sense8

4 June 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As the Wachowskis’ Sense8 arrives on Netflix, Ryan checks out the first three episodes of this complex sci-fi drama...

Ever since they first beseiged the box-office in 1999, the Wachowskis have specialised in larger-than-life, bombastic images: Keanu Reeves ducking a bullet in beautiful slow-motion in The Matrix, the high-octane psychedelia of Speed Racer and the weird sight of a wolf-eared Channing Tatum flying through the air on jet boots in this year’s Jupiter Ascending.

Yet Sense8 begins not with a bang but with the image of Daryl Hannah writhing about on a fusty mattress. It’s the first in a collection of incongruous sequences which, like a mosaic, gradually come together to form a more intelligible image.

Sense8 is another coup for Netflix after the success of such envelope-pushing shows as Orange Is The New Black and Daredevil. It pairs the Wachowski siblings with J Michael Straczynski, the veteran of »

The Callow Way – On Tax and Fraud in Film

31 May 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at cases of the misuse of tax incentives in film…

The tax incentives offered by various countries, and some Us states, to film and TV production companies have been a good thing. Maybe not in if you live in Los Angeles, which has seen a decline in projects being shot there in the past few years, but it means films are as likely to be shot in London or Hungary as Hollywood and your favourite TV show is probably now shot in Baltimore or Louisiana rather than a sound stage in California.

However, these tax incentives have not always been used to invest in films for the right reasons. Last week, members of one British film investment scheme were reported to be ready to settle a legal battle, paying the UK tax man a massive £1.5 billion, enough to pay for the next few instalments Star Wars or Marvel movies, »

New SENSE8 Character Trailers Reveal the Chosen Ones

28 May 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For those not too jaded by a Wachowski sibling project after Jupiter Ascending, their new series, Sense8, is debuting its 12 episodes on Netflix in just a few days (June 5th, to be exact). The series follows 8 individuals from all over the world, who become linked as “sensates” (puns!) both mentally and emotionally. They can access each other’s knowledge, language, and skills, but also each other’s deepest secrets. In the new character trailers below, a little 8 in the corner marks the moment that character becomes connected to another sensate. As they are told, “you are no longer just you, you have 7 other selves.” Naveen Andrews’ character does not seem to be on the 8 though, but some sort of a guide. But what is the end game? And what is this connection supposed to help them do? [caption id="attachment_463145" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Murray Close/Netflix[/caption] You can learn more about each of »
