2015 Pilot First Impressions: NBC’s Blindspot

27 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it that will follow are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about CBS’ Supergirl. Next up: NBC’s Blindspot, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 21, at 10 p.m. The Premise: A naked woman, covered head to toe with tattoos, awakens from inside a duffel bag dropped in the middle of Time Square, with no idea of who she is. The only person who seems to have any shot at figuring out the identity of this Jane Doe is FBI Agent Kurt Weller, whose name is tattooed onto the woman’s back, dragging him and his team into this ever-growing mystery. The Cast: Jaimie Alexander (Thor) as Jane Doe, »

‘Blindspot': The Kick-Ass Girl With The Funky Tattoos – Comic Con

11 July 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

If you’re into chicks with tattoos, there’s NBC’s Blindspot this fall. The show’s creators as well as lead actress femme Jaimie Alexander took the platform at Room 6A today at Comic-Con and described exactly what brought them to a thriller action series about a mysterious Jane Doe (Alexander) who is found in a body bag with tattoos all over her body, including the address of the FBI agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) who found her.

Watch: Jaimie Alexander Goes Full Jason Bourne In Trailer For NBC's 'Blindspot'

10 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, if this hyper-charged spot wasn’t just made for Comic-Con, then I don’t know what is. The ominous techno music throbs hard and the stares are steely and humorless in this new action-packed trailer for “Blindspot,” a new series from “Stargate: Atlantis” producer Martin Gero, and by the looks of it, this new hour-long drama may very well share some of that earlier show’s fanboy-friendly DNA. Jamie Alexander, loaded with enough high-caliber weaponry for a dozen David Ayer flicks and covered in “don’t touch me” tattoos, plays our badass heroine Jane Doe. The trailer voiceover promises that Jane comes equipped with a special set of “skills,” making her sound eerily similar to the protagonist of a certain lucrative action franchise. Sullivan Stapleton will play a tough-as-nails fed whose primary task is to decipher the riddle that Jane’s tattoos may pose, and if they point to some larger criminal conspiracy. »

Blindspot Pilot Review: NBC’s Action-Mystery Series Is Too Easy to Decode

9 July 2015 12:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s not surprising that a recurring element of the pilot for Blindspot is the looking over of the tattoos that cover the body of Jane Doe (Thor’s Jaimie Alexander), the mysterious woman that is found in a duffel bag in Times Square with no memories. The mural of inked images, numbers, and symbols that take up most of the woman’s body is both the obvious hook and only really fascinating element of NBC’s new action-mystery series, which combines elements of The Bourne Identity, Memento, and a handful of procedural shows (NCIS and CSI, primarily) into a competent but hugely derivative and predictable bit of intrigue. Unlike Christopher Nolan’s film or, say, David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises, the tattoos are not expressions of a tormented inner self and personal, cultural history but rather a map of crimes that will ploddingly lead the audience toward a criminal »

'Blindspot' Comic-Con Trailer Starring Jaimie Alexander

8 July 2015 6:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Later on tonight at Comic-Con, NBC will air the pilot episode of Blindspot during Preview Night. For those who won't be in San Diego, the network has released an extended Comic-Con trailer for the show, that breaks down the unique skill set displayed by Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander), a woman found naked in Times Square, freshly inked with mysterious tattoos. Although Jane has no clue who she is, this mysterious woman has a high level of training in weapons and combat, with her tattoos serving as clues to crimes that haven't happened yet.

Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire) and Jaimie Alexander (Thor films) star in Blindspot, a one-hour action thriller from Berlanti Productions (The Flash, Arrow, Pan) and writer/executive producer Martin Gero (Stargate: Atlantis).

Exclusive: 'Strike Back' heroes won't go quietly in final season trailer & poster

3 July 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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, »

"Lucy," "Colombiana" Sequels In Development

26 June 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Luc Besson's EuropaCorp company is participating in CineEurope this week where they announced their list of upcoming movies.

The big surprise is that sequels to last year's Scarlett Johansson sci-fi thriller "Lucy," and the Zoe Saldana action thriller "Colombiana" are both in development.

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. »

Lucy 2 And Colombiana 2 Both In The Works

26 June 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

'Lucy 2' And 'Colombiana 2' Are In Development

26 June 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"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) »
