Black Lightning’s second episode of the season starts with an intense game of Chess as Whale is blaming Painkiller for not protecting Syonide from her attack last week. Whale is in no mood for excuses and after every poor move, Painkiller is beaten. Needless to say whatever “moral compass” Syonide provided Whale, is now officially gone.

Meanwhile the victims of the Freeland experiments are beginning to wake up from the pods and are using their powers in attempts to free themselves from government control. Lynn attempts to calm the escaped victim but to no avail as the unknown female victim knocks down a brick wall and escapes to the streets. After reviewing the security footage, Gambi identifies the escaped victim as Wendy, a former nursing student enabled with the power of telekinesis.

‘Black Lightning 2×01: The Rise of the Green Light Babies’ Review

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams, James Remar, Marvin Jones III, Damon Gupton | Developed by Salim Akil

Black Lightning is back for season two (with new opening credits!) and after a season of world building, it’s time to expand on this universe!

The new season begins three months after the season one finale with Freeland struggling with an epidemic of young, super-powered people hooked on the drug Greenlight and law enforcement struggling to control the situation. Due to what the community feels are unnecessary deaths of these “Greenlight Babies”, Freeland is at a tipping point between their citizens and the police and if something isn’t changed soon, the peaceful protests may not be peaceful much longer. Jefferson finds himself under investigation by the school board as he was “mysteriously” absent when the school was being invaded by the 100 Gang in the season finale. The

John Travolta as a Drug Trafficker in Trailer for Crime Film 'Speed Kills'

"I don't owe anybody, anything." Saban Films has debuted a new official trailer for an action crime drama titled Speed Kills, based on a book by Arthur J. Harris. This oddly premiered as a Vr Experience, a feature film presented entirely as a Vr feature, and it won the top award at a film festival earlier this year. John Travolta stars in this action-packed true story of an ‘80s speedboat champion and multimillionaire caught between the mob and the law. The impressive full cast includes Katheryn Winnick, Matthew Modine, James Remar, Kellan Lutz, Jennifer Esposito, Tom Sizemore, Jordi Molla, Michael Weston, Moran Atias, and Amaury Nolasco. By now we all know that Travolta isn't really making any good films anymore, and this looks to be staying true to that. I'm glad they're not trying to still push the Vr experience.

Bruce Dern replaces Burt Reynolds in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Deadline is reporting that Bruce Dern is set to reunite with his The Hateful Eight director Quentin Tarantino on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with Dern taking over the role originally earmarked for his long time friend, the late Burt Reynolds.

Reynolds originally signed on to portray George Spahn, the owner of the ranch where Charles Manson and his cult followers lived during the infamous 1969 Manson Family murders. However, the screen legend passed away weeks before he was due to shoot his scenes for the movie, with Dern now stepping in as his replacement.

Bruce Dern Replaces Burt Reynolds in Tarantino's Once Upon a Time

Bruce Dern Replaces Burt Reynolds in Tarantino's Once Upon a Time
Quentin Tarantino has found his replacement for Burt Reynolds in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Sadly, Reynolds, who passed away earlier this month, didn't get the chance to film his scenes in the Pulp Fiction director's latest. So, Tarantino was forced to turn elsewhere and he's tapped another 70s movie star in the form of Bruce Dern. This is a move that makes a great deal of sense, not only because Dern is, himself, a great actor, but because Dern and Reynolds were actually friends in real-life for years prior to the actor's passing.

Bruce Dern will play George Spahn, the real-life figure who housed Charles Manson and his followers at his ranch prior to their string of grisly murders. Spahn was nearly blind at the time and some of Manson's female followers aided him as part of the arrangement, even going so far as to sleep with him.

‘Black Lightning’ Boss on Season 2 Police Brutality, Family Separation and ‘Consequences’

  • Variety
‘Black Lightning’ Boss on Season 2 Police Brutality, Family Separation and ‘Consequences’
The first season of “Black Lightning” on the CW tackled topical storytelling around gang and gun violence, and drugs in inner cities. With that foundation under its feet, the second season will dive even deeper into tales of police brutality and family separation.

“We’re at a critical point where artists, if they so choose — if it’s on their heart or their mind — have to express what they’re thinking,” says showrunner Salim Akil. “It’s on my mind and it’s on my heart, and it seems like it’s not stopping.”

Picking up in the immediate aftermath of the events of the first season finale, “Black Lightning’s” sophomore year finds police in Freeland responding to calls that young African-American men are under the influence of green light — a drug that creates powers ranging from super strength to projecting a truth serum making those in your range

Black Lightning Season 2 Premiere Synopsis Teases Much Change In Freeland

After witnessing how Black Lightning kicked all kinds of butt with its first season (you can check out our review for the Blu-ray set here), you’d better believe that I’m right there with the rest of you who can’t wait to see what the DC series’ sophomore year has in store.

Fortunately, though, The CW have been rather generous with teasers in recent memory, serving up a phenomenal trailer and a rather stylish poster. And now, they’ve given us an even greater idea of what to expect via the intriguing synopsis found below:

Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) and his family may have survived Tobias’s (Marvin Jones III) attack, but they’re not out of the woods yet. Concerned for the safety of Garfield’s students, the board considers a motion to shut down the school, forcing Jefferson to go to Napier Frank (guest star Robert Townsend) to sway the vote.

Mike Moh will play Bruce Lee in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

Though he was cast in Quentin Tarintino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood last month, Mike Moh’s (Inhumans) role had not been revealed, but now TheWrap has reported he will be portraying legendary actor and martial arts expert Bruce Lee in the film.

The size of Moh’s role as Lee isn’t known yet, but it is expected his appearance will be a brief one in the film. For a time after the Manson Family murdered Sharon Tate, played by Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Roman Polanski briefly thought Bruce Lee was the one who had killed her and some of their closest friends.

In addition to starring in Marvel’s short-lived Inhumans series, Moh has portrayed Ryu in two live-action Street Fighter web series with a third, Street Fighter: World Warrior, currently in development. Much like Lee, Moh is a martial arts expert and has often cited
