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.
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. »

Angelina Jolie celebrates her 40th birthday today (June 4), and to mark the occasion here at Digital Spy we've rifled through our DVD collections to pick out our favourite Jolie films.
Remember her breakthrough with Hackers way back in the '90s? How about the ass-kicking turn in Tomb Raider or her soulful performance in A Mighty Heart? Read on to find out our Jolie favourites then have your say on her best big screen roles in the comments below...
With Hackers already spoken for, and Morgan Freeman's ridiculous 'loom of fate' ruining the otherwise rather decent Wanted, Jolie's turn as gaming icon Lara Croft looms largest over her career for me – largest in that it's still somehow seen as a rather huge mistake that she inexplicably recovered from. That reputation is one really worth reassessing, though. Sure, Jolie only narrowly missed out »
After American Sniper became a stunning box office success for Warner Bros. early this year, the studio has set its director Clint Eastwood for another biopic. The prolific filmmaker will helm an untitled film that tells the true story of Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, the American pilot who heroically landed a filled plane in the Hudson River after it malfunctioned mid-flight.
Sullenberger became a national hero back in 2009 when he pulled off a tricky emergency landing in the Hudson River off Manhattan when his aircraft, climbing out of Laguardia Airport, struck a flock of Canadian geese, disabling both engines. All passengers and crew members survived the landing.
No stars have come into focus yet, but with Eastwood sitting behind the camera, »

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 »

In the fall of 2003, James Cameron filmed the record-breaking “no limits” free dive of Pipin Ferreras, which was a special event commemorating the death of Ferreras’s wife, Audrey Mestre. A year earlier, she drowned attempting the same feat of reaching a depth of 170 meters (557.7 feet) while holding her breath. During the press conference for the 2003 dive, Cameron confirmed earlier reports from that summer that he would be making a movie about the couple, and it would wind up being based on Ferreras’s 2004 memoir, “The Dive: A Story of Love and Obsession.” More than a decade later, Cameron has been focusing his directorial interests on the Avatar movies, but he’s continued developing the project with other filmmakers coming on board to take the helm. Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) became attached back in 2012, and now Francis Lawrence is the latest substitution, according to The Wrap. He also has an actress joining him for the role »

Here's Angelina Jolie meeting Pope Francis. She screened "Unbroken" at the Vatican. Hooray for Angelina! But here's what we hope Pope Francis had to say in return. 1. "There's such a thing as being too charitable. Settle down, Ang." 2. "I respect that Shiloh wants to be called John, so I hope you can respect that I want to be called Big Pope Francey." 3. "So, is 'Unbroken' the 'War Horse' of 2015? Because I couldn't sit through that." 4. "'Changeling.' Good try." 5. "Please tell your father to stop calling me. I cannot help him." 6. "Your husband has an Oscar for producing. Kind of cheating, isn't it?" 7. "You gonna make that Carmen Sandiego movie or what?" 8. "The cardinals and I all agreed that 'Salt' is underrated and 'Beowulf' was kind of hot." 9. "I would honestly rather watch 'Elementary' than 'Fargo' if we're talking about the television ventures of your weird ex-husbands." 10. "What's it like to have real power? »
