The first season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series was full of unexpected twists, making the show stand on its own, venturing far off from the Robert Rodriguez film it was based on. It’s was definitely an interesting debut season,which from we were recently sent via El Rey, will be taken into even crazier places when the show returns for its second season on August 25th.
Returning this season are stars D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Zane Holtz (7 Minutes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower); Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, “Sons of Anarchy“); Eiza González (“Amores Verdaderos“); Wilmer Valderrama (“That ’70s Show,” To Whom It May Concern); Madison Davenport (Noah, “Shameless“); Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew) and Jake Busey (Contact).

It has been destroyed by critics (read our reviews here and here)and was called the Worst Blockbuster of All-Time by our own Anghus Houvouras – but Terminator: Genisys passed a milestone this weekend.
Terminator: Genisys added another $2.5 million to its domestic total and has now made $305 million worldwide, the majority of which has come from overseas. In the Us, the movie has made just $85 million, but its worldwide take of $219 million (taken mostly in South Korea, United Kingdom and Russia) has helped push the movie past the $300 million marker.
However, the movie cost a whopping $185 million – and that doesn’t include marketing costs – so there is still some way for it to go before it becomes “profitable”. Terminator: Genisys is currently the 14th biggest movie of the year, and is being outperformed by The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Taken 3 and Mad Max: Fury Road. »

In the first season of "Daredevil," Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) talks about how he dated a Greek girl in college, but it "didn't work out."

Joe: Retaliation) as the character of Elektra in season 2 of Netflix's "Daredevil" set to be released in 2016.

The Marvel/Netflix Daredevil series began shooting its second season recently and, after a brief mention in an episode, we know that one of the most important people from Matt Murdock’s (Charlie Cox) past will be showing up in his present, in the shape of Elektra. Now we also know who will be playing her on screen, as Elodie Yung has won the role. Yung, probably still best known for her work in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, will play the Greek-born trained assassin, originally created by Frank Miller, who inspires both passion and pain in our hero. “After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity,” Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb said in a statement. “Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the »
Now, the news has been confirmed, and an actress has been named too – Elodie Yung. She’s been seen before in G.I. Joe: Retaliation and District 13: Ultimatum. She also popped up in the American Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie back in 2011.
“After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity,” said Marvel TV bigwig Jeph Loeb.

The season of Elektra is nearly upon us: Marvel announced Tuesday that French actress and experienced blind-folded butt-kicker Elodie Yung will take a turn as the fan-favorite assassin for Netflix's second round of Daredevil. "After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity," Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb said in a statement. "Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for." Sounds good. Yung (of G.I. Joe: Retaliation fame) joins recent addition Jon Bernthal to hopefully do lots of this and this. You'll also be able to see her in the forthcoming projects Gods of Egypt and Of Kings and Prophets. »

Move over Jennifer Garner, because a new Elektra is making her way to Hell’s Kitchen. Marvel announced today that “after a worldwide search,” G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress Elodie Yung has been cast as the deadly ninja assassin in Daredevil‘s second season.
Created by Frank Miller, Elektra Natchios is the longtime love interest of Daredevil, whose history as a deadly assassin for The Hand often drives a wrench (or twin sai) between the two. The character was briefly mentioned in Daredevil‘s first season, as Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson reminisced about a relationship with a Greek woman from college that “didn’t work out.” Many (including us) hoped that that Easter egg would lead into the character’s small screen debut, and now that dream – along with the Punisher’s arrival – has become a reality.

In the second major piece of casting for Marvel's Daredevil season two, French actress Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) is set to play the popular antihero antihero Elektra Natchios, trained assassin and sometimes paramour of Matt Murdoch (Charlie Cox). In their official release, Marvel describes Elektra as "a mysterious woman from Matt Murdock’s past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle." The series made a vague reference to Elektra in the first season when Foggy (Elden Henson) recalled Matt's "smokin' hot" Greek girlfriend from college. Elektra - Daredevil's sometimes enemy, sometimes ally - was created by Frank Miller and first debuted in Daredevil No. 168 (1981). [caption id="attachment_482699" align="alignright" width="310"] Image via Marvel[/caption] Yung fills a critical role for the second season, joining Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle a.k.a. The Punisher.

Yesterday it was revealed that cameras have started rolling on the second season of Daredevil, and now the official Marvel site has revealed that Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) has secured the role of the fan favourite character Elektra Natchios.
“After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity,” states Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.”

Marvel is bringing the supersize approach of the movies to "Daredevil." Following the well received first season, they are expanding the world for season two. Jon Bernthal is signed up to play Punisher, who will apparently be the villain the next batch of episodes, but it looks like Matt Murdock might have an (eventual) ally. EW reports that Elodie Yung — who you might remember (or not) as Jinx from "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" or as Miriam Wu, Lisbeth Salander's love interest in David Fincher's 2011 "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" — has been cast as the ninja assassin Elektra Natchios. The character was teased briefly in a throwaway line in the first season, with Matt referring to a relationship that "didn't work out," but it looks like circumstances will bring Elektra back into his life. And we're sure this incarnation will be better than the feature film that Marvel would like you to forget ever existed. »
