Mr Robot season 3 episode 3 review: Legacy

Alec Bojalad Oct 26, 2017

Mr Robot turns an unnecessary diversion of an episode into an excellent character study in Legacy. Spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

3.3 Legacy

One of the best and most fascinating aspects of Mr. Robot season 2 was Tyrell Wellick’s very conspicuous absence.

The simple absence of a lead character is such an underutilised yet powerful tool in the TV showrunner’s tool belt. Our brains crave patterns and consistency and when a pattern is broken is such a severe way like a lead actor suddenly disappearing, those same brains can’t help but mistake a simple absence for importance.

Sam Esmail was so bold as to tell Martin Wallstrom, a professional actor presumably under contract, “don’t worry so much about this season.

Stephen King talks The Stand and Salem’s Lot adaptations

It’s been a heavy year for Stephen King adaptations, with feature film versions of The Dark Tower, It and Gerald’s Game (with 1922 still to come later this month), as well as The Mist and Mr. Mercedes on the small screen.

Next year is set to bring us the Hulu series Castle Rock, while filming on It: Chapter Two is also expected to take place, and now King has revealed to Vulture that a further two adaptations may be in the pipeline.

“There’s talk about doing The Stand as an extended TV series, possibly for Showtime or CBS All Access. And there’s been some interest in developing Salem’s Lot as a feature, probably because people are saying, ‘Well, we took an old miniseries called It and turned it into a phenomenon, so maybe we can do it with something else.’ Nothing succeeds like excess!”

Stephen King & Peter Straub's The Talisman heading to the movies

John Saavedra Oct 16, 2017

Josh Boone will write and potentially direct a big screen adaptation of Stephen King and Peter Straub's The Talisman.

Stephen King and Peter Straub's fan favourite fantasy novel, The Talisman, is being adapted for the big screen by Amblin Entertainment, according to Variety. It was also confirmed that bigtime King fan Josh Boone, who's busy directing X-Men: New Mutants right now, will write the script. There's also a possibility he may direct the film. 

The Talisman tells the story of a 12-year-old boy named Jack Sawyer, who tries to save his mother from dying of cancer by finding a mysterious crystal known as "the Talisman." His quest leads him into The Territories, a sort of parallel universe of our own that's full of dangers. King co-wrote the novel with horror master Peter Straub (Ghost Story) as well as a sequel called Black House.

Watch the Official Trailer for Josh Boone’s The New Mutants Superhero Horror Movie

  • DailyDead
Although he's on horror fans' radars right now for his in-the-works film adaptations of Stephen King's The Stand, Revival, and King and Peter Straub's The Talisman (as well as a TV series adaptation of Clive Barker's The Great and Secret Show), filmmaker Josh Boone's next big screen story comes from the land of Marvel Comics. Part superhero story and part horror film, the first trailer for The New Mutants has arrived.

In a previous interview with EW, Boone said that The New Mutants movie will be "a full-fledged horror movie set within the X-Men universe. There are no costumes. There are no supervillains. We’re trying to do something very, very different."

For those unfamiliar, The New Mutants debuted in 1982 before their own comic book series premiered in 1983. Brought to life on the paneled page by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, The New Mutants followed teenage

Josh Boone writing script for Stephen King’s The Talisman

This year has been a pretty big one for fans of Stephen King’s works. The Dark Tower and It were released earlier this year and on the television side there is the upcoming Castle Rock series while Mr. Mercedes has been renewed for a second season. Fans have more to look forward to, however, as Variety has reported Amblin Entertainment has hired The Fault In Our Stars and X-Men: The New Mutants director Josh Boone to adapt the novel into a film.

Amblin had previously been developing The Talisman as a television series, but has since decided to make it into a feature film. Boone has had a long working relationship with King. He was tapped to adapt The Stand to film, but when that project went on hold King asked Boone to adapt The Revival, another project that is currently in development. Frank Marshall will produce The Talisman with Michael Wright,

Stephen King's Talisman Movie Gets New Mutants Director
Another high-profile Stephen King adaptation is officially in the works. Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) has been hired to write, and possibly direct, an adaptation of the author's 1984 novel The Talisman for Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment. This is one of the most significant King novels that hasn't yet been adapted for the big screen. Or the small screen, for that matter. So it's a big deal, assuming it actually gets made.

The news comes courtesy of Variety, who report that legendary producer Frank Marshall will producer The Talisman for Amblin, with Michael Wright on board as an executive producer. Amblin Entertainment had initially been working on adapting the novel, which was co-authored by Stephen King and Peter Straub, as a TV series, but they recently decided to turn it into a movie instead. Per the report, the movie "follows a boy, who in order to save his mother from certain death,

Castle Rock 2nd trailer debuts at Nycc

  • Cinelinx
In a past episode of channel control, we talked about a show named Castle Rock. This upcoming 10 episode Hulu original series is a psychological thriller anthology and will be based off the fictional town of the Castle Rock, Maine which has been used in numerous Stephen King Novels. The town has been used as the back drop for The Dead Zone, Cujo, Needful Things, and at least 8 other stories by Mr. King. The town has even been mentioned in over 20 stories including Creepshow, The Stand, Gerald’s Game, & 11/22/63.

In the first teaser, we hear multiple voice-overs as the names of books, movies, or characters from his stories are shown on the screen. It ends with a dark map of the North-Eastern Us and the words Castle Rock across the screen. It’s pretty much standard fare for a teaser, which is nothing more than “Hey! We’re making a show.

Salem’s Lot And The Stand Could Both Be Headed For New Adaptations

Hollywood is a creature of habit, so there’s an element of inevitability surrounding the renewed interest in adapting Stephen King stories for the screen. With 2017 having so far seen both ends of the spectrum in cinema – The Dark Tower failing at the box office, while It broke records – all bets are now off as we wait to gauge reaction to the adaptation of Gerald’s Game that’s about to arrive on Netflix. King himself has recently stoked the fire of curiosity, though, by suggesting to Vulture that brand new adaptations of The Stand and Salem’s Lot could be on the cards.

“There’s talk about doing The Stand as an extended TV series, possibly for Showtime or CBS All Access, and there’s been some interest in developing Salem’s Lot as a feature, probably because people are saying, “Well, we took an old miniseries called It

Stephen King's The Stand and Salem's Lot Are Getting Reboots
It's a great time to be a Stephen King fan. The wild success of It has brought a renewed interest in the author's work, which means we are bound to be getting some new adaptations of his beloved stories in the near future. There are quite a few King projects already in development, but what else could we see in the next couple of years? According to King, it looks like The Stand and Salem's Lot are up next.

The 70-year-old author spoke with Vulture recently and talked a bit about what may be coming down the pipeline. Adaptations of Gerald's Game and 1922 are coming to Netflix very soon, but Stephen King says that some of his bigger, more recognizable stories, are possibly going to get new adaptations soon. The Stand is, once again, possibly going to be done as a TV series and Salem's Lot may finally be made as a proper movie.

Worst Stephen King Movies of All Time
Two months after The Dark Tower stunk up the multiplex, It came along and reminded all of us that it's possible to adapt a Stephen King story in a way that can be embraced by audiences and critics, to the tune of new box-office records, even. There are quite a few good films as you can see in our best Stephen King movies list. But while that may be true, there are probably more that just haven't hit the mark.

It's almost hard to blame Hollywood for getting it wrong so often, simply because there have been so many attempts at adaptations from wildly diverse source material, tackled by filmmakers with wide ranging levels of talent. Stanley Kubrick, Frank Darabont, Brian De Palma. There have been some real heavy hitters who have smartly adapted the work of our favorite Maine based ultra prolific author.

10 Best Stephen King Movies So Far

10 Best Stephen King Movies So Far
It stormed the box office in September 2017, smashing box office records, pleasing critics, and quickly washing away the bad taste of so many poorly wrought Stephen King adaptations like the current of a suburban neighborhood sewer. Move over Ernest Hemmingway! Beat it Dr. Seuss! The Stephen King adaptation is a hot commodity in Hollywood once again.

Sure, those aforementioned authors have had their books adapted less than half as many times as the works of Stephen King. With so many adapted works from the same prolific storyteller, many of them are sure to be bad. And that is the case with Stephen King. If you grew up in the 80s, you might even remember that a Stephen King movie was not anticipated with the kind of must-see attitude of today's audiences. Many laughed off the notion, believing that if it was a Stephen King movie, it must be bad.

But as It reminded audiences,

How It Connects to Other Stephen King Stories
Most Stephen King fans already know that the man has created a sprawling universe, with many of his most popular stories interconnected. He has his own shared universe, which is only now starting to be explored on the big screen. The latest adaptation of his work It hit theaters this weekend and is proving to be a blockbuster. It contains plenty of Easter eggs. Perhaps not as many as this past summer's Dark Tower movie, which featured it's own It shoutout. But you might be surprised how It connects to a lot of King's past novels.

Entertainment Weekly has a pretty comprehensive break down of all the Easter eggs and connections It contains to other Stephen King works of fiction. The book was originally released in 1986, and then turned into a two-part miniseries in the 90s. Characters and places from It have been known to pop up a lot in his work.
