Happiness? More or less. Sky’s new Fantasy crime thriller stars James Nesbitt as a detective with luck on his side...
You can imagine the commissioning meeting that led to this one: “Whaddya got for me?” says a cigar-chomping exec, “another detective show? Where’s the super-powers? We gotta have super-powers. Get wassisname, the Spider-Man guy, pay him to come up with a new super-power.”
And so Stan Lee’s Lucky Man was born. Possibly.
Aside from his name and a requisite cameo in episode one, it’s hard to tell the extent of Stan Lee’s involvement in Sky’s new fantasy thriller. The IMDb gives him neither a writer nor a story credit on the show, yet press cuttings are calling it Lee’s UK television debut. Perhaps his role was like that of Peter Dinklage’s character in Elf, a trouble-shooter shipped in to provide a killer idea. »
“The Revenant” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” kept their industry awards streaks alive Wednesday with nominations from the American Society of Cinematographers. Both films have also been recognized by the Screen Actors Guild, American Cinema Editors, Art Directors Guild and Producers Guild of America this year.
The nominations mark, respectively, Emmanuel Lubezki’s sixth and John Seale’s fifth from the group to date. Lubezki has won four Asc awards, for “Children of Men,” “The Tree of Life,” “Gravity” and “Birdman.” He won back-to-back Oscars for the latter two. Seale won both the Asc prize and the Oscar for “The English Patient.”
