Westworld Review: For a Series About Robots, HBO's Drama Has a Lotta Heart

23 September 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you ever saw Michael Crichton’s cheesy but enjoyable 1973 Westworld, you should go ahead and erase it from your memory before sampling HBO’s series adaptation (premiering Sunday, Oct. 2, at 9/8c). The small-screen upgrade — developed by Jonathan Nolan (Person of Interest) and Lisa Joy, and boasting J.J. Abrams among its executive producers — is about as different from its big-screen counterpart as Ava in Ex Machina is from R2-D2 in Star Wars.

Evidence Mounts That Jon Bernthal’s Punisher Will Crop Up In The Defenders

22 September 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Evidence continues to mount that Frank Castle (Aka The Punisher) will be making an appearance elsewhere in Marvel’s small-screen universe before Jon Bernthal’s mercenary toplines his own solo series.

Ahead of New York Comic-Con kicking off, the event’s official Twitter account shot out a message earlier today confirming that Bernthal would be in attendance at next weekend’s showcase; however, that visit will be cut short “due to his Netflix production schedule.”

Per Twitter:

Due to his Netflix production schedule, @jonnybernthal will only be at #Nycc on Saturday and Sunday. More info: https://t.co/uMrzkxxJWM pic.twitter.com/Ro6nMfqvry

Westworld Season 1 Review

18 September 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

There isn’t much hand-holding in the opening hours of HBO’s insane new epic Westworld. Like the guests in the show’s western theme park, there isn’t a helpful guide to show you around, or a succinct orientation video with a dancing DNA strand to fill you in on bits and pieces of how the park even started. As one of Westworld’s robot “hosts” says to a nervous guest early on, “figuring out how it works is half the fun.”

Truer words couldn’t be spoken about the first four hours of Westworld, which is both a terrifying disaster-in-slow-motion and a rollicking adventure, all rolled into a plot that has so many levels of storytelling you’ll be obsessed with its nascent mythology by the end of the pilot’s goosebump-inducing opening scene. But it’s never obtuse, never needlessly highbrow, »

HBO’s Westworld gets another chill-inducing trailer

14 September 2016 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the time since HBO first announced that they were developing a TV adaptation of Michael Crichton’s cult 1973 film Westworld, anticipation has only been building, with more potential viewers seeing the show’s action-packed and chill-inducing previews and marking its premiere date on their calendar. Now, with the show’s debut just a few weeks away, the world will soon find out if it was worth the nearly two-year-long wait. In the meantime, however, a brand new trailer for the series has just found its way online, thanks to a YouTuber named Adrian Craney, and can be viewed below…

The trailer, which is set to the song “In Dreams” by Roy Orbison, features a decent amount of footage not shown in the two previous teasers (here and here) and comes on the heels of the release of the official Westworld poster and four new images.

Has ‘The Punisher’ Found Its Villain in ‘Westworld’ Star Ben Barnes?

The villains have often been the highlight of Marvel’s Netflix series, with Vincent D’Onofrio’s Walter Fisk emerging as the standout character of Daredevil and David Tennant leaving quite an impression as the psychic sociopath Kilgrave on Jessica Jones. Luke Cage looks to be following suit with a baddie played by House of Cards star, Mahershala Ali. So […]

Narnia Star Ben Barnes To Play The Villain In Netflix ‘The Punisher’ Series, Plus Watch New Clip From ‘Luke Cage’

13 September 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that Marvel movies have really shit villains. But fortunately, so far, the bad guys on the Netflix Marvel shows, set within the McU, have been the best parts of the sometimes patchy shows: Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk was so good he made us wish the show was called “Kingpin” and not “Daredevil,” while David Tennant was indelibly creepy on “Jessica Jones.”

And now, one of the villains, or anti-heroes at least, is getting his own show, with “The Punisher” set to follow the still-to-debut “Luke Cage,” “Iron Fist” and team-up miniseries “The Defenders” on the streaming service.

Ben Barnes joins The Punisher as a series regular

13 September 2016 7:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like casting is underway on Netflix’s latest Marvel project, with TV Line reporting that Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) has signed on to appear alongside Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle as a series regular in The Punisher.

Although character details are being kept under wraps, it is rumoured that Barnes will be playing the villain Bobby Saint, the son of mob boss Howard Saint. Both characters were created for the 2004 movie starring Thomas Jane, with James Carpinello playing Bobby and John Travolta as Howard.

It would surely be a huge surprise if Marvel used a character created for a movie over the many possible comic book villains at their disposal, so I’d suggest taking that rumour with a pinch of salt…

Ben Barnes joins the cast of Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’

12 September 2016 4:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Chronicles of Narnia and upcoming Westworld star Ben Barnes has joined the cast of Netflix and Marvel’s The Punisher, the planned TV series with Jon Bernthal in the lead as Frank Castle/ Punisher.

TVLine report the news of Barnes’ casting, though there are no specifics as to whom he will play. The rumour mill has already kicked into gear though, and the character he could play is ‘the corrupt crime prodigy’ Bobby Saint, a role played by James Carpinello in the 2004 film. The character was created for the motion picture and was not in the original comics.

Bernthal appeared as The Punisher in the last season of Daredevil, and will also be in the upcoming mini-series The Defenders, which is said to be hitting before a Punisher series.

More as it comes our way.
