Kari Skogland To Direct 6-Part ‘The Falcon And The Winter Soldier’ Miniseries With Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Daniel Bruhl & Emily Van Camp
Exclusive: Kari Skogland has been set to direct the six-part Disney+ miniseries The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, with Avengers: Endgame‘s Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan starring. Sources said Captain America: Civil War‘s Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are also in talks to join. The miniseries will air in August 2020.

I’d heard that Mackie’s accepting the shield from Captain America at the end of Avengers: Endgame will figure into the miniseries, but the studio had no comment on where it goes.

Bruhl played Zemo in Captain America: Civil War, the mastermind who drove a wedge between Captain America and Iron Man that factored into the Avengers films, and the murderer of Black Panther’s father. Malcolm Spellman (Empire) has been writing.

Skogland is the Emmy-nominated, BAFTA-winning director, showrunner and CEO of Mad Rabbit, a Red Arrow Studios company, which launched in 2016. She has directed episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale,

Netflix's The Silence Trailer: Kiernan Shipka Fights Flying Bat Monsters

Netflix has really stepped up the horror game over the past few years producing such neo hits as Mike Flanagan's adaptation of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and Suzanne Bier's adaptation of Josh Mallerman's Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock. And today we have the trailer and poster for their new possible hit The Silence starring Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka. The film comes to us from director John R. Leonetti, who is perhaps best known for helming the original Annabelle flick along with the PG-13 teen horror movie Wish Upon starring Joey King, and let's not let him forget, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation starring Robin Shou and James Remar.

The Silence begins when the world is attacked by a flock of terrifying creatures who hunt their human prey by sound, which sounds like, you know, bats to me. Anyhow, when these bat monsters attack the world, 16-year

Lucy in the Sky Teaser Trailer Starring Natalie Portman Released

Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for Lucy in the Sky, starring Natalie Portman as astronaut Lucy Cola. In the film, Portman plays an astronaut who returns to Earth after a transcendent experience during a recent mission and begins to lose touch with reality in a world that now seems far too small to contain her after suffering a breakdown of sorts.

The film is directed by Noah Hawley (the creator of “Fargo” and “Legion”) in his feature debut. The film, loosely based on astronaut Lisa Nowak’s alleged romance with fellow astronaut William Oefelein, is written by Brian C Brown, Elliott Diguiseppi, and Noah Hawley. Starring alongside Portman are Jon Hamm, Dan Stevens, Zazie Beetz, Pearl Amanda Dickson, and Ellen Burstyn.

As you can see, the film looks pretty darn good. Here’s hoping that the final product delivers on the promise of the trailer. But, please judge

Former Oscar rivals Julia Roberts and Laura Linney are on a collision course for a rematch at the Emmys

Former Oscar rivals Julia Roberts and Laura Linney are on a collision course for a rematch at the Emmys
Eighteen years ago, Julia Roberts took home the Best Actress Oscar for “Erin Brockovich” (2000). Among the people she beat? Laura Linney, who earned her first nomination with “You Can Count on Me.” And now, a full person-who-can-vote years later, the two are poised to face off again at the Emmys for Best Drama Actress.

Roberts is competing with her Amazon series “Homecoming” and Linney is Netflix’s hopeful for “Ozark.” In our early odds, both are predicted to make the lineup, with Linney in second place and Roberts in third.

Roberts may have gotten the better of Linney at the Oscars — ain’t nobody was hijacking Roberts’ coronation that year — but it’s a totally different ballgame at the Emmys. That’s because Laura Linney is a goddamn Emmy queen. She possesses a nearly perfect 4/5 record; she has three Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress statuettes and one for Best Comedy Guest Actress.

Trailer For “Lucy In The Sky” Suggests An Out Of This World Film

One of the titles that I’ve been predicting for probably more Academy Award love than most is the film Lucy in the Sky. Part of it is just a hunch on my part, though a lot of it has to do with the story and the talent involved here. This has a chance to be an under the radar gem. Earlier today, a Trailer was released for Lucy in the Sky, and it doesn’t do anything to make me feel any less confident about its potential. It looks great. We’ll have the Trailer for you at the tail end of this post of course, but before that, I want to talk about what it is and why I think it could be a player. The movie is a character study, mixing a bit of comedy, drama, and even science fiction. Previously known as Pale Blue Dot, this

Natalie Portman can’t quite come back down to Earth in first ‘Lucy in the Sky’ trailer [Watch]

Natalie Portman can’t quite come back down to Earth in first ‘Lucy in the Sky’ trailer [Watch]
No one plays unhinged quite like Natalie Portman, and she’s got another doozy on tap, judging by the first trailer for “Lucy in the Sky” (watch above).

The Oscar winner plays Lucy Cola, an astronaut who loses grip with reality upon her return to Earth and soon starts an affair with another astronaut, Mark (Jon Hamm). “I go up there and see the whole universe and everything here looks so small,” Lucy says in the clip over a shot of her and Mark bowling with a ball painted like Earth. Subtle, guys.

Portman adopts a Southern accent and dons a short wig that looks like the follicular love child of her ‘do in “The Professional” (1994) and Claire Foy‘s bob in “First Man.” As Lucy further unravels, the teaser ends with Lucy running from police and a shot of her in a room (therapy session?) in which she tells

Natalie Portman Goes to Space With Fargo Director in Lucy In The Sky [Trailer]

If there is anything we know for sure about Noah Hawley it's that typical is not in his vocabulary. If anything, his resume over the last few years includes some of the most interesting, risky storytelling on television (see "Fargo" and "Legion"), and now he's dipping his fingers into the feature film world.

Lucy in the Sky stars Natalie Portman as Lucy Cola, an astronaut who returns to Earth after a mission only to find the day-to-day of her life mundane and she begins to lose touch with reality.

Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz, Tig Notaro, Ellen Burstyn, Nick Offerman and Hawley regular Dan Stevens all co-star.

It's not only an interesting story idea but Hawley's style and approach to storytelling are likely to make Lucy in the Sky a tad more interesting t

Lucy in the Sky Trailer Takes Natalie Portman on a Life-Changing Trip to Space

Lucy in the Sky Trailer Takes Natalie Portman on a Life-Changing Trip to Space
The first trailer for Lucy in the Sky is here. Natalie Portman is, without question, one of the finest actresses working in the business. Not only does she deliver the goods every single time she shows up on screen, but the Oscar-winner has displayed an incredible amount of range and can seemingly do any type of role, in any type of movie. This time around, she's playing an astronaut in an intriguing tale that is loosely based on a true story.

For context, this movie is loosely based on the story of real-life Nasa Captain Lisa Nowak. In 2007, following her time in space, Nowak drove nearly 1,000 miles from Texas to Florida, armed with a knife and a Bb gun, to confront her former boyfriend, astronaut William Oefelein, along with his new girlfriend, Air Force Captain Colleen Shipman. Nowak was arrested and charged with attempted kidnapping. It's very clear that the movie,

First Trailer Arrives for Noah Hawley's Lucy In The Sky

Kirsten Howard Mar 19, 2019

Natalie Portman stars as an astronaut who isn't coping well with the idea of leading a space-free life.

Here we go! Noah Hawley is getting ready to release his very first feature film for Fox Searchlight later this year. Previously called Pale Blue Dot, this trippy (would you expect anything less from Hawley?) Natalie Portman-starring drama is now entitled Lucy In The Sky, and this is one we've had our eye on for a long time.

Hawley is the man behind both the critically acclaimed Fargo and the absolutely intangible weirdness that is Marvel's Legion over at FX, and while his planned Doctor Doom movie still sits on the back burner at Fox, we're about to see what he's capable of on the big screen with this debut effort.

In Lucy In The Sky, Portman leads the cast as the titular astronaut Lucy, who, after a

Natalie Portman plays an astronaut who struggles to readjust to life on Earth after her encounter with the vastness of space in the new trailer for Lucy In the Sky.

The new trailer boasts an eerie sci-fi edge as it jumps between sequences of Lucy and her crew floating through outer space and, later, Lucy sitting down to say grace before a family meal.
