Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez Go on a Revenge Spree in Lila & Eve

19 July 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Lila & Eve is a film about mourning posing as a film about revenge. If you tried really hard, you could imagine it as yet another contemporary riff on Death Wish. And, to be fair, Viola Davis could probably do a hell of a job as a Charles Bronson–like angel of vengeance. But despite the trappings of violence and retribution and inner-city despair, this is not that movie.Davis plays Lila, a mother grieving the death of her older son, Stephon (Aml Ameen) in a drive-by shooting near a local drug corner. When she joins a support group for the parents of murdered children, she meets Eve (Jennifer Lopez), a confident, elegant, tough-talking mother who gives voice to Lila’s own frustrations with the police and the other institutions around them. The cop investigating Stephon’s death (Shea Whigham) is helpless, a creature of procedure and habit. When Lila visits the police station, »

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:

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, »

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 »

Viola Davis & Jennifer Lopez Are Revenge-Seeking Vigilantes in Trailer for 'Lila & Eve'

3 June 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I didn't attend the Sundance Film Festival this year, so I haven't seen this yet (it made its world premiere there in January). But it's definitely been high on my "curiosity" list, and it's good to finally see what it's going to look, sound and feel like - at least as much as a trailer can give. Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez star in "Lila & Eve," the "Thelma & Louise"-esque drama-thriller from director Charles Stone III, which also features Shea Whigham, Julius Tennon, Ron Caldwell, and Aml Ameen in front of the camera.

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 »

First SENSE8 Trailer Teases What It’s Like to Have 7 Other Selves

7 May 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s been three months since Jupiter Ascending tanked at the box office, but I’m still having a tough time shaking the riotous disaster, so the Sense8 marketing team is going to have a tough time getting me to check out all 12 episodes of the Wachowskis' show when they hit Netflix on June 5th. The series centers on eight characters who become linked together, both mentally and emotionally. Not only are they able to talk to each other when they’re not even in the same place, but they’ve also got access to each other’s deepest secrets as well. The Wachowskis definitely have an interesting premise here, but I don’t know if having Naveen Andrews spit out a ton of exposition is the best way to convey the details. I would have rather been introduced to the concept from the perspective of one of the unsuspecting »
