Gemini Man Poster Splits Will Smith in Half

Update; We have been informed by Paramount Pictures that this is not an official Gemini Man poster. It is fan-made. Official first look posters, images and a trailer will be forthcoming.

Original Story: The first poster for director Ang Lee's Gemini Man has made its way online. This represents a return to action movies for Lee, who has been focused on more dramatic and ultimately awards-friendly fare over the course of the last fifteen years or so. Hulk left a bad taste in his mouth too, apparently. This time around, he's brought Will Smith along for the ride in what could be one of the more intriguing blockbusters coming our way in 2019.

Currently, there isn't a ton of plot information available for Gemini Man, but the poster plays on what we do know. We see a split down the middle, teasing two different version of Will Smith. This movie

Joel Kinnaman, Sarah Jones & Michael Dorman To Star In Ron Moore’s Apple Space Series

Joel Kinnaman, Sarah Jones & Michael Dorman To Star In Ron Moore’s Apple Space Series
Exclusive: Former The Killing and Altered Carbon star Joel Kinnaman, Patriot star Michael Dorman and Damnation co-star Sarah Jones have been tapped as the leads in Apple’s upcoming space drama series from Battlestar Galactica‘s and Outlander‘s Ronald D. Moore.

Dorman has played the lead on the Amazon Studios’ quirky genre-bending spy drama series Patriot whose second season was ordered 16 months ago but is yet to air. Because of the delay, Dorman was able to book a new series. I hear Amazon will likely not make a formal renewal decision on Patriot until Season 2 is released and should they opt to do another season, they will have to work around Dorman’s schedule on the Apple series.

Kinnamon, who played the lead, Takeshi Kovacs, on the first season of Netflix’s Altered Carbon, was recently tapped to star on the upcoming Amazon drama series Hanna in what is currently a one-year deal.

Spike Lee’s 10 Best Movies Ranked

Spike Lee’s 10 Best Movies Ranked
Spike Lee has been making movies for more than 30 years now, racking up some two dozen feature credits leading up to the release of “BlackKklansman” this weekend.

And I’m happy to say: I knew him when. Way back at the 1986 Cannes Film Festival, I was approached by an aggressive PR rep to cover the first feature by a director he identified as “the black Jim Jarmusch” — a promising up-and-comer named Spike Lee. The description was intriguing, but the film itself, “She’s Gotta Have It,” is what really made me take notice. Decades later, I’m still following the career of the young upstart who has aged gracefully into grey eminence without any diminution of his willingness to take risks, or his ability to surprise and provoke. Of his several exceptional films, these are the ones I would select as his ten best.

Top 5 Casino Movies

Hollywood has, over the years, constantly flirted with Las Vegas and the casino. There are far too many films to mention where casinos are heavily featured, but we thought we’d look at the top five we feel perfectly bring them both together.

The Hangover

Back in 2009, Todd Phillips brought a movie to the screen which captured a generation. The first film in The Hangover series was the most popular and, at the time, was the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time, taking $467 million at the global box-office. The film follows a group of guys who venture to Las Vegas for a bachelor party – one in which they wake up having lost the groom. They must try to get over their hangovers and discover what happened the night before. The film is completely set in Las Vegas and heavily features one of the most famous casinos on the strip, Las Vegas.

‘Seven Seconds’: Regina King’s Brilliant Netflix Drama Is Canceled, But Still Worthy of an Emmy

The central image in Netflix series “Seven Seconds” is striking, iconic and, for showrunner Veena Sud, intimately familiar: the Statue of Liberty, with her back to New Jersey, stands in front of the Manhattan shoreline. Sud saw it every day as a single mom taking her son to the park in Jersey City’s Filippino neighborhood.

Seven Seconds” is not only a worthy successor to Sud’s Seattle mystery procedural “The Killing,” which Netflix rescued when AMC let it go, but to David Simon’s influential “The Wire,” which explored the inner workings of Baltimore institutions. She only got one season to do it, which is why Netflix put “Seven Seconds” into Emmy contention as a Limited Series. In television, getting canceled is a harsher reality than not getting continued or extended; it’s a rejection, and Emmy nominations tend to come with a perception of ongoing success, not rejection.
