Narcos Season 1 Review

27 August 2015 6:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Gone are the days when Netflix had but one series per season; this summer has seen the streaming behemoth debut an electric new sci-fi property and the continuation of arguably its most popular show. Next in line is Narcos, premiering all ten of its episodes on Friday, August 28. The show tells the true-life story of the slow rise to power of Pablo Escobar and his massive cocaine empire that spanned cities and countries, and the handful of DEA agents who made it their life goal to put an end to his operation.

Like the service’s previous hour-long dramas, Narcos is handsomely produced, with unmistakably confident direction from José Padilha (2014’s RoboCop) and a warm color pallet that highlights the trickly sweat-drenched actors and the sticky air of both the Miami and Colombian city streets of the late 70’s/early 80’s. Unfortunately, where »

Viola Davis talks Suicide Squad and DC’s “darker characters”

27 August 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Deadline to dicuss her work on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder, Viola Davis has offered up a few words on Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC supervillain ensemble Suicide Squad., where she plays the character of Amanda Waller, head of A.R.G.U.S. and Task Force X.

DC Comics have a tendency to have darker characters,” states Davis. “You know, Batman is a darker character, Harley Quinn, the Joker, and what David Ayer has managed to do is humanize them. I think that you see it in the trailer too–just something different about it that makes you lean in. What he’s explored is the pathology behind all of these characters, so you just get that extra spin that gives you the flavor and a look which is very different. »

Margot Robbie on losing out on Sue Storm in Fantastic Four, and Jared Leto’s Joker

26 August 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next year Margot Robbie is set to give a big screen debut to the fan favourite DC character Harley Quinn in Warner Bros.Suicide Squad, and speaking to Daily News, the Australian actress has revealed that she had previously been under consideration to play Susan Storm in 20th Century Fox’s box office bomb Fantastic Four – a role she eventually lost out on to Kate Mara.

“I didn’t really resonate with the script, and I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t really know how it turned out different from the page,” states Robbie. “But I had a great meeting with the director [Josh Trank] and I really enjoyed that. I guess it’s part of the game: sometime you win some, sometimes you lose some.”

Given the reception to Fantastic Four, I guess this one can be chalked up as a “win”.

Meanwhile, the actress also shared a »

'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit' Wants Lea Seydoux for Female Lead

24 August 2015 4:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that 20th Century Fox is testing actresses for the female lead in Gambit, with L&#233a Seydoux (Spectre), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation) and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) all competing for the coveted role of Belladonna (Bella) Boudreaux in this X-Men spinoff. Today, Deadline reports that the part was offered to L&#233a Seydoux. It was also revealed that Rebecca Ferguson had to drop out of contention after she landed the lead role in The Girl on the Train.

In the original comic books, Belladonna Boudreaux was the daughter of the New Orleans Assassins' Guild leader, who fell in love with Remy LeBeau (Channing Tatum). LeBeau was a member of the Thieves Guild, and was set up with an arranged marriage to Bella to unite both guilds, but Remy was forced to flee to New Orleans. Bella went on to receive her own super powers, »

22 August 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

New trailer for Netflix’s upcoming ‘Narcos’ brings the violence along with the money

19 August 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a critically acclaimed turn in Season four of HBO’s Game of Thrones, actor Pedro Pascal is set to return to television in a major role once again, this time on Netflix’s Pablo Escobar drama Narcos.

The show, Netflix’s newest original series, has now released a second trailer. Narcos will have its first season written entirely by Hannibal scribe Chris Brancato, with Elite Squad and RoboCop director José Padilha helming every episode. Wagner Moura steps into the role of Pablo Escobar, and Moura and Pascal are joined onscreen by Boyd Holbrook, Ana de la Reguera, and Manolo Cardona.

The series itself will trace the rise of Pablo Escobar and the Medellin cartel, as well as the DEA Agents who went after them. Escobar and the cartel made their money by smuggling cocaine from Colombia to the Us in the 80s, with the DEA intent on either arresting or killing him. »

Suicide Squad Cast Members Give Each Other “Skwad” Tattoos

See Full Gallery Here

The various selfies taken by the members of the ensemble cast of Suicide Squad over the last few months seemed to suggest a pretty close bond within the group, but some of them have taken it to Lord Of The Rings type levels by getting matching tattoos – and not to be outdone by Peter Jackson’s Fellowship, they’ve inked each other up!

Director David Ayer posted the images above to his Twitter account, and they provide another look at Margot Robbie in full costume as Harley Quinn as she tattoos one of her cast-mates… or is that Ayer himself? Plus, Robocop star Joel Kinnaman shows off his Skwad tat, given to him by none other than Will Smith! Captain Boomerang himself, Jai Courtney, is also sporting Skwad on his forearm.

We’e not sure if any other members of Task Force X went under the needle, »

Second Trailer For Netflix’s Drug Kingpin Series Narcos Amps Up The Tension

18 August 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A brand new trailer has arrived for Netflix’s next original series Narcos, exploring the activities of infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Set during the druggy excesses of the 1980s, the series delves into the exploits of the kingpin himself and the Medellin cartel, who aided him in funnelling buckets of cocaine in and out of Colombia. This latest preview provides new insight thanks to Boyd Holbrook’s voiceover as one of the DEA agents lumped with the thankless task of bringing Escobar down.

Alongside Holbrook is Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as a fellow agent and Wagner Moura in the plum role of the gangster himself. And the blood-soaked, violence-fuelled gangster tip is played heavily here, with more than a few nods to some of the genre’s classics. What’s worthwhile noting while watching the trailer is how little public presence the series has thus far. It’s »

10 filmmakers who went from Indie Darling to Big Budget Blunder

11 August 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the wake of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, Matthew Lee looks at ten filmmakers who went from Indie Darling to Big Budget Blunder…

Josh Trank’s debut, Chronicle, was a surprise hit of 2012. The film fused the found-footage genre with superhero tropes to create a coming-of-age story that was both fresh and exciting. Trank’s ability to transcend these tired trends and motifs made him an ideal candidate to finally do justice to the Fantastic Four franchise, one that had an unreleased early 90s film, and two poor mid-00s flicks. However, with production problems between Trank and cast members, and no advanced press screening, many pundits were concerned this would be a mess.

The results are in, and it is not only a poor film, but has been described as the worst reviewed Marvel film to-date. That’s not good. Trank responded openly via tweet to this, noting how Fox had – ah, »

Suicide Squad Trailer Breakdown

10 August 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“Well that’s it, huh? …we’re some kind of Suicide Squad.”

Name Of The Movie In Dialogue Alert! Name Of The Movie In Dialogue Alert!

Ah, it’s Ok. It’s Will Smith. He also gets the line, “let’s go save the world,” which is cheesier than El Diablo’s grilled quesadillas.

All is forgiven, though, as the Comic Con 2015 Suicide Squad trailer looks spectacular. Flickering Myth’s Owen Rhys is here to break it down frame-by-frame, from who each character is, to the identity of Joker’s victim.

—This Is An Excerpt From The August Flickering Myth Movie Show—

Check out the full episode below, where our esteemed panel debate the San Diego Comic Con 2015 news, picking a definitive (well, kind of) winner of the three-day geek-fest.

Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto teases The Killing Joke on Instagram?

10 August 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto has taken to Instagram to post a short video of his shadow, which may (or may not) alude to one of the Joker’s most iconic looks from Alan Moore and Brian Bollan’s Batman: The Killing Joke

 

For comparison, here’s an image of The Joker wearing a very similar wide-brimmed hat…

Of course, this doesn’t mean that Suicide Squad will be drawing on any elements of The Killing Joke (Leto may just be a fan of his own shadow), but we will be getting an animated adaptation of the classic comic book tale next year, with Mark Hamill lending his voice to the Joker.

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th 2016 and sees David Ayer (Fury) directing a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, »
