As expected, Marvel hasn’t quite committed to giving Tennant purple skin, instead dressing the famous Purple Man in lavender attire. It’s a change that makes sense, especially in the more “grounded” world that these Netflix shows reside in, but it’s a tad disappointing nonetheless.

Marvel's Daredevil finally debuted last Friday to much acclaim from fans and critics alike. Though, the random sourpuss did call it a 2 hour movie stretched to 13. Marvel is no doubt looking at some of the criticism, as they continue to shoot their next big series for Netflix. Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones is set to debut later this year, and will continue the adventures of the Hell's Kitchen Avengers, otherwise known as The Defenders. While we've seen plenty of lead actress Krysten Ritter on set as Jessica Jones, today brings our first look at her two main co-stars as shooting continues on location in New York.
Mike Colter is set to introduce his Luke Cage in Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones first, before moving onto his own Netflix series, which will debut sometime in 2016. In the latest set photos, we get to see him riding his motorcycle with Krysten Ritter on the back. »

Starring Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), with Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia “Trish” Walker), and Carrie-Anne Moss, A.K.A Jessica Jones is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix. »
It’s fair to say that Daredevil has impressed a lot of telly fans, offering a small screen superhero show that didn’t shy away from the darker stuff, via online streaming service Netflix.
While you may have binged all the episodes already, the Marvel and Netflix party is far from over. There are three more collaborative shows on the way, leading up to the fourth – a Defenders mini-series.
The next of these shows is Aka Jessica Jones - expected late this year - starring Krysten Ritter as the eponymous Jessica Jones, a former superhero turned detective. Here’s our first look at her on set in New York, featuring Mike Colter as well (who plays the superheroic Luke Cage, Aka Power Man, who is also set to »

Aussie actor Xavier Samuel appeared as The Twilight Saga's Riley Biers and has subsequently popped up in a small role in Fury. His next turn, as Monster in Bernard Rose’s new take on Frankenstein, is a lot more eye-catching - as this first reveal from the film hints. He was the creation of evil vamp Victoria in Twilight, now it’s the turn of a pair of scientists played by Carrie-Ann Moss and Danny Huston as Elizabeth and Victor Frankenstein respectively to modify Samuel into a potentially horrifying new creation. Except this Frankenstein is told from the Monster’s perspective and it’s with him that our sympathies will lie as his creators abandon him to a cruel and uncaring world. "This perfect creation-turned disfigured monster must come to grips with the horrific nature of humanity,” runs the synopsis.Samuel joins an illustrious line of actors to have played Frankenstein's Monster, »
We have the exciting first-look from Bernard Rose's Frankenstein starring Xavier Samuel, Carrie-Anne Moss and Danny Huston in this modern day adaptation of the classic tale by Mary Shelley. Frankenstein will world premiere this coming weekend at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. We also have the thrilling new synopsis that delves into this contemporary retelling of the horror classic!
Frankenstein is set in present day Los Angeles and told entirely from the perspective of the Monster. After he is artificially created, then left for dead by a husband-and-wife team of eccentric scientists, Adam is confronted with nothing but aggression and violence from the world around him. This perfect creation-turned disfigured monster must come to grips with the horrific nature of humanity.
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is one of those evergreen stories of creation, loss, and humanity, amongst numerous other weighty themes. In fact, there's rarely a year when at least one new re-telling of the story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster is distributed either in theaters or VOD. Last year brought us the execrable I, Frankenstein, starring Aaron Eckhart as the suspiciously gorgeous monster and Bill Nighy as his Lucifer-esque nemesis; that's not even mentioning all the gargoyles involved in that movie. And this year, we'll see the release of Bernard Rose's Frankenstein, which updates the story to modern times and casts Xavier Samuel (Twilight, Fury) as a teenaged monster brought into the world by a pair of conflicted scientists, played by Carrie-Ann Moss and Danny Huston. The press release says that Frankenstein: is set in present day Los Angeles and told entirely from the perspective of the Monster. »

We at Thn collectively love Keanu Reeves and have been immensely excited about his return this year in John Wick. Although not released in UK cinemas until April, Thn have been lucky enough to have already seen it and we can tell you that it is all kinds of awesome.
John Wick was so brilliant that it has awoken my long-forgotten admiration for Mr Reeves and compelled me to revisit his extensive back catalogue immediately. Having spent my evening post screening ordering an alarming amount of Keanu Reeves films, both good and bad – Henry’S Crime anyone? I realised that my schoolgirl crush was far from over. Reeves is exceptionally handsome yes, but he also seems like such a nice, genuine guy. Recent interview appearances for John Wick revealed that he has a very down-to-Earth nature and that he doesn’t take himself, or life to seriously. He has also »

Dwayne Johnson's latest actioner San Andreas is another PG-13 rated visual effects piece of disaster porn as the MPAA promises "intense disaster action and mayhem throughout". Can't wait! There's more PG-13 goodness in the Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara comedy Hot Pursuit, but the rest of this week's highlights are all R-rated, that is, except for the PG-rated Minions, but, well, you know... Two movies we reviewed out of SXSW are coming soon and both are rated R in the form of Adult Beginners and The Overnight. Also, the Owen Wilson, Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan "trouble in Southeast Asia" movie, No Escape, has an updated R rating. The original rating back in July 2014 was for "strong violence including a sexual assault, and for language", and this new rating is pretty much the same, but it's missing the "including a sexual assault" bit. Wonder what happened there... Finally, there's »
