Narcos viewers know Chris Feistl as the hungry DEA agent who helped dismantle the season-three villains, the Cali cartel.
On the Netflix drug cartel series, the agent (played by Michael Stahl-David) pushes his boss Javier Pena (Pedro Pascal) to let him leave Bogota, Colombia so he and his partner (Matt Whelan) can hunt the four Cali godfathers on the ground. Chris ultimately becomes the DEA contact for informant Jorge Salcedo (Matias Varela), the head of security for the Cali cartel who risks his life to help...

In fact, soon after the fallout of season 2, the online streamer went ahead and ordered a two-season renewal, thereby ensuring its hit crime saga will be with us until at least 2018. That’s a resounding vote of confidence for a show that’s now beginning to mosey into uncharted territory, but as today’s all-new trailer reveals, Pedro Pascal’s DEA agent Javier Peña is back, and he has the Cali Cartel firmly between his crosshairs.
In a post-Escobar world, the Drug Enforcement Administration has turned its attention toward that cartel and its so-called Four Kings: Damian Alcazar as Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela, Francisco Denis as Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela, Alberto Ammann as Pacho Herrera, and Pepe Rapazote as Chepe Santacruz Londono. Together, that foursome begins to spread its tentacles to New York City, and its up to
The new season of the drug cartel drama picks up with the DEA agents on a new hunt — the Cali Cartel — following the fall of Pablo Escobar at the end of Season 2. Known as the richest drug-trafficking organization in the world, this operation is led by four powerful godfathers who have their own way of handling business and staying out of the spotlight.
The four Kings — Damian Alcazar as Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela, Francisco Denis as Miguel Rodriguez Orejuela, Alberto Ammann as Pacho Herrera, and Pepe Rapazote as Chepe Santacruz Londono — are expanding their empire over New York City and they aren’t stopping there.
The newly-released footage sees Pedro Pascal return as DEA agent Javier Peña, and enlist American and Colombian law enforcement to help with the war on drugs.
A new ensemble of players joins the show — Damian Alcazar, Francisco Denis, Alberto Ammann, Pepe Rapazote, Matias Varela, Michael Stahl-David, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Arturo Castro — taking roles on both sides of the law, as new godfathers rise to take over the lucrative, illegal drug game.

The new season, which launches Sept. 1, will explore the Colombian cocaine trafficking business in the wake of the death of Pablo Escobar. The Cali Cartel, led by four powerful godfathers, operates much differently than Escobar, preferring to bribe government officials and keep its violent actions out of the headlines.
Pedro Pascal returns as DEA Agent Javier Peña, with this season also featuring Damian Alcazar, Francisco Denis, Alberto Ammann, Pepe Rapazote, Matias Varela, Michael Stahl-David, Matt Whelan, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Kerry Bishe, and Arturo Castro.
José Padilha and Eric Newman executive produce the show, which is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix.
These reactions came from a number of different Twitter users offering plenty of praise for this video game adaptation. Many singled out the iconic "leap of faith" as a high point for the movie, which was an iconic part of the original game. We reported back in August that this jump, performed by stuntman Damien Walters, broke a world record for the highest free fall jump at 125 feet,
But make no mistake, Assassin’s Creed is acting as ground zero for Ubisoft, and with only two weeks to go until its theatrical release, two new trailers have now found their way online. The first is an international sizzle reel in which you’ll find a sliver of new footage, while the second ushers the Templars into the light. They’re the clandestine
Those of you who tuned in to The Game Awards 2016 yesterday evening will have no doubt laid eyes on the clip already – likely multiple times, given the sheer amount of ad breaks – but it’s an electrifying teaser nonetheless. Entitled ‘Carriage Chase’, this promo looks to have been pulled from one of the movie’s key action sequences, as Fassbender’s deadly assassin tracks down a missing boy being held against his will.
Much digital ink has been spilled regarding the intense action scenes of Assassin’s Creed,
Now, thanks to a collaboration between Ubisoft Motion Pictures, New Regency and 20th Century Fox, we’re within touching distance of seeing that technology light up the big screen. The subject? Michael Fassbender’s Callum Lynch, a known criminal sentenced to death towards the beginning of the Assassin’s Creed movie. However, it’s only when Abstergo Industries – and, by effect, the nefarious Templars – learn of his Assassin ancestry that Callum becomes an exploitable asset, one who is thrust into the Animus against his will to

Good versus evil, right versus wrong – it’s the eternal moral struggle found in just about every story, irrespective of which medium it’s told on. Finding nuance between those two binary opposites is often what makes said narrative compelling, and that’s something Michael Fassbender touched on while discussing Assassin’s Creed to Empire.
Not only will the Oscar-nominated actor assume the dual role of Callum Lynch/Aguilar, but Fassbender also holds a producer’s role aboard Assassin’s Creed, and previous interviews have revealed his hopes for a future franchise. However, on this occasion, Fassbender’s attention is drawn to the morally complex story of Justin Kurzel’s live-action adaptation.
Orchestrating an age-old battle between the Assassins and the Templars, Kurzel is no stranger to historical epics following his award-winning work on last year’s Macbeth, and
Assassin's Creed has been given a December 21 release date, where it will go up against Sony's sci-fi thriller Passengers and Universal's animated comedy Sing. It also opens five days before the highly-anticipated Star Wars spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which some are predicting will earn upwards of $130 million, while going up against Warner Bros.' Collateral Beauty.

If there was ever a video game title that could be engineered into a blockbuster Hollywood franchise, it’s Assassin’s Creed. Pardon the pun, but high-octane action and historical intrigue is very much ingrained in the series’ DNA and come December, Ubisoft Motion Pictures and New Regency will be hoping that AC‘s overly successful legacy translates onto the big screen with relative ease.
At the helm of the adaptation is Justin Kurzel, the director that served up perhaps one of the best Shakespearean films in recent memory in last year’s Macbeth. It was here that the Aussie filmmaker struck up a working partnership with both Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender, and Assassin’s Creed will see the latter embody the dual role of Callum Lynch and his long-lost Spanish ancestor, Aguilar.
Indeed Fassbender and Cotillard are
Angled as a potential franchise-starter, here we see Michael Fassbender in the dual role of Callum Lynch and Spanish sleuth Aguilar. It won’t be only film in which the Oscar-nominated actor holds more than one role either, given that he’s set to play two synthetics in next year’s Alien: Covenant.

However, before shooting for the stars, another brand of sci-fi awaits. With Assassin’s Creed, Fassbender’s modern-day protagonist will gain access to the memory strands of his long-deceased ancestors, catapulting him back to the Spanish Inquisition thanks to a piece of kit known as the Animus. Inducted into the assassin’s guild as Aguilar, our
Assassin's Creed features an all-star cast including Michael Fassbender in the dual role of Callum Lynch and his 15th Century descendant Aguilar, alongside Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson and Michael K. Williams. During a recent interview with McV, Ubisoft's European chief Alain Corre
Now I’m not that adverse to remakes and reboots as some and, if I’m honest, the 1991 version of Point Break is not as special to me as it is to others – in fact Bigelow’s film never really gelled with me, so I approached this redux with a really open mind. Turns out I shouldn’t have bothered!
Taking its cue from Kathryn Bigelow’s original movie, this remake of Point Break once again tells the story of Johnny Utah (Bracey), a young FBI agent who infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez) – who are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways…
However Ericson Core
I know this is sacrilege to say, but Kathryn Bigelow’s cult classic dripping in nostalgic testosterone is the perfect property for a big-budget remake.
