In this new Golden Age of TV drama, viewers don't lack for the most erudite, artful, philosophical dramas they can possibly find. But sometimes, we just want to watch stuff blow up real good, and in a way that doesn't insult our intelligences. That is where Cinemax's "Strike Back" has come in for the last few years, and the way the show will be going out when its final season debuts here on July 31. (The first few episodes have already aired in the UK.) It's an action show that's always been smarter, funnier and plain better than it needs to be, with great chemistry between leads Philip Winchester and Sullivan Stapleton (both of whom will be headlining NBC dramas this fall), action sequences that put the best of network TV (including "Arrow") to shame and a winning mix of fun and genuine stakes. I've seen the first four episodes of the final season, »

A year ago Besson himself was asked "Lucy" sequel prospects to which he replied "I don't see how we can do [a sequel]. It''s not made for that." Looks like someone found a way.
Also on the way are "Shut In" with Naomi Watts, "Nine Lives" with Kevin Spacey, "The Lake" with Sullivan Stapleton, and "Escobar" with Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz which are all due next year. The Dave Bautista-led "Warrior's Gate" and Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne-starring "Valerian" are also due in 2017. »

Say what you will about Luc Besson, but the guy knows how to craft a kick-ass action heroine. At CineEurope 2015, his production house EuropaCorp unveiled a packed slate of upcoming films, and included in the roster were a pair of sequels to two of Besson’s most successful female-driven action-thrillers: Lucy and Colombiana. That’s right – despite Scarlett Johansson’s psychokinetic badass ascending past human form at the end of Lucy, and Zoe Saldana’s revenge-minded assassin slaying the man responsible for her parents’ murders, both characters are gearing up for more carnage-heavy adventures.
It shouldn’t really come as a surprise that Besson is interested in Lucy 2 and Colombiana 2 – both films were solid performers at the box office (especially Lucy) and starred actresses who are becoming more bankable by the week – Johansson is a proven draw for audiences with Marvel fans in her pocket, while Saldana recently led Guardians of the Galaxy »

"I don't see how we can do [a sequel]. It's not made for that,” Luc Besson said last summer about the prospect of a sequel to the surprise smash hit "Lucy." “If I find something good enough, maybe I will, but for now I don't even think about it.” Well, it looks like he's thought about it and something is brewing. At CineEurope 2015, production house EuropaCorp (which Besson heads up) announced their slate of upcoming films, which quietly mentioned that "Lucy 2" was "in development." Here's the roster: “Shut In” with Naomi Watts (International Release Date February 19, 2016) “Nine Lives” with Kevin Spacey (International Release Date April 29, 2016) “The Lake” with Sullivan Stapleton (International Release date July 15, 2016) “Warrior's Gate” with Dave Bautista (date undetermined output) “The Transporter Legacy” with Ed Skrein (Release date September 9, 2015) “Escobar” with Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz (Released in 2016) »

Green - who plays Lt. Col. Philip Locke - told Digital Spy that the action thriller's next run gets "bigger and better" than before - and "couldn't really go anywhere else".
"You can't write a story like this, and then continue the series," he hinted. "So yeah, we knew it was going to go out with a bang. The storylines were so gripping and thrilling.
"It just got better and better and it couldn't really go anywhere else. But you should always leave your audience wanting more, and I think the finale does that. It really is a very emotional ending."
However, Green did reveal that, early on, that had been talk of Strike Back continuing - perhaps on a new network. »

NBC has revealed trailers for a few of its fall series, including Blindspot, People Are Talking, The Player and Heartbreaker – and the result is an expectedly mixed bag. My first impressions of the trailers, below:
Out of everything that’s coming to the major networks this fall, Blindspot seems like one of the most promising. It boasts a highly capable cast in Jaime Alexander and Sullivan Stapleton, and the story is basically a TV blend of Memento and The Bourne Identity, which I’m entirely on board with. Unless the story is mind-numbingly stupid (of which there’s a disconcertingly high possibility), Blindspot could be the rare NBC thriller that actually draws eyeballs.
Unfortunately, I can’t say that I feel anything apart from irritation toward People Are Talking, simply because even though the trailer, true to this comedy’s title, features a lot of people talking (about sex, sex »

DeHaan and Delevingne will play the characters Valerian and Laureline. Besson will write and direct, while Virginie Besson Silla will produce on behalf of their production company EuropaCorp, which will finance, produce and distribute.

The long-arc shows are gaining steam, and it looks as though they are officially the hottest thing in television. NBC‘s fall effort, Blindspot, goes another step further than the usual theme of unraveling threads by kicking off without knowing anything about what’s going on.
In this version of Wtf television, a woman shows up in the middle of Times Square, in a bag, naked, covered in tattoos, and with no memory. The plot of the show? Boom. Go.
As you’ll see in the trailer above, one of the tattoos is an FBI agent’s name, and the hunt is on. Who is she? Why is she there? What happened to her? What’s it all mean?
It’s like a spin on The Blacklist, except that we just get the list, it’s written in clues we have to decipher, and on a person.
It’s the »
