An Underrated Fantasy Film Is Dominating Netflix Today

An Underrated Fantasy Film Is Dominating Netflix Today
The time between The Lord of the Rings trilogy concluding in 2003 and Game of Thrones launching in 2011 was a strange period for the fantasy genre, with a whole host of would-be franchises and multi-season TV hopefuls arriving on a regular basis, but very few of them managed to puncture the public consciousness or capture the zeitgeist in any meaningful way.

There were countless movies released into theaters in the interim, a great deal of which were absolutely terrible, but one of the better and more overlooked entries in the back catalogue is Solomon Kane. Based on the character from Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard that debuted in 1928, director Michael J. Bassett helmed a grim, gritty and often unrelentingly violent tale, but one that was clearly made with a great deal of affection and heaps of enthusiasm.

The Flight Attendant: Kaley Cuoco Covers Up a Murder in First Trailer

The Flight Attendant: Kaley Cuoco Covers Up a Murder in First Trailer
Kaley Cuoco's return to the small screen is going to be a wild ride from start to finish.

HBO Max on Tuesday dropped the official trailer for its upcoming series, The Flight Attendant, and it looks like a hoot.

The series focuses on flight attendant Cassandra Bowden, who wakes in her hotel room with a dead body lying next to her.

Afraid to call the police, she continues her morning as if nothing happened, joining the other flight attendants and pilots traveling to the airport.

In New York, she is met by FBI agents who question her about her recent layover in Dubai. Still unable to piece the night together, she wonders if she could be the killer.

The trailer builds the tension well, and this appears to be a role built from the ground up for Cuoco, who recently wrapped a 12-year stint on The Big Bang Theory.

Widow of Cameraman Killed During ‘Black Earth Rising’ Production Seeks Answers From Inquest
The widow of cameraman Mark Milsome, who was killed in an accident on the Ghana sets of BBC/Netflix series “Black Earth Rising” in 2017 hopes that a new inquest into the death will end her three-year quest for answers.

Milsome, 54, was fatally injured when a Land Rover Defender crashed into him during filming. The series, written and directed by Hugo Blick, was produced by Forgiving Earth Limited. It stars Michaela Coel (“I May Destroy You”) and John Goodman (“Atomic Blonde”).

Following Milsome’s death, his wife Andra instructed international accident lawyers at Irwin Mitchell to support her through the inquest process.

Caroline Davies, the solicitor at Irwin Mitchell supporting Andra and daughter Alice, said: “The last few years have been incredibly difficult for Andra and Alice as they attempted to try and come to terms with Mark’s sudden and unexpected death.”

“Understandably, they have many concerns regarding how he died.

Kaley Cuoco's Flight Attendant Has a Toxic Hookup in HBO Max Trailer
Kaley Cuoco’s titular Flight Attendant has a one-night stand to remember in the HBO Max series’ first trailer. And yet, she apparently has forgotten critical (deadly?) parts of the impulsive encounter.

Here’s How Richard Madden Could Look As The Batman Universe’s Two-Face

Here’s How Richard Madden Could Look As The Batman Universe’s Two-Face
The Batman is set to feature a bunch of the Dark Knight’s biggest foes, from Colin Farrell’s Penguin to Paul Dano’s Riddler by way of Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman. There are still plenty of familiar faces not due to turn up in this film, though, who will most likely show in the sequels instead. And speaking of those familiar faces, one of them is Two-Face.

Of course, Harvey Dent is amongst the most recognizable of Batman’s enemies, so he has to factor into Matt Reeves’ plans somewhere. But who could bring the corrupt District Attorney to life in this franchise, after he’s previously been played by the likes of Tommy Lee Jones and Aaron Eckhart?

Well, an awesome piece of artwork pitches Game of Thrones star Richard Madden in the role. As you can see below, artist Will Gray has given the British actor the

UK Cameraman Mark Milsome’s Widow Hopes New Inquest Will Provide Answers Behind Fatal Incident On BBC & Netflix Series ‘Black Earth Rising’

UK Cameraman Mark Milsome’s Widow Hopes New Inquest Will Provide Answers Behind Fatal Incident On BBC & Netflix Series ‘Black Earth Rising’
An inquiry into the death of Mark Milsome, the UK cameraman who was killed while filming on the set of BBC and Netflix series Black Earth Rising in Ghana in November 2017, is underway.

The final inquest had been due to take place in June at the West London Coroner’s Court but was delayed due to pandemic reasons. It will now take place from today (October 20) and run for four days.

Milsome, who had also worked on Game Of Thrones and Saving Private Ryan, was fatally injured when a Land Rover Defender crashed into him during the filming of a night time stunt scene.

At a pre-hearing last year, it was alleged that the stunt was changed at the last-minute, placing Milsome dangerously in the car’s path, and that the drivers were inexperienced. The inquest will look into concerns raised by the family that cost-cutting was a factor in the stunt going wrong.

‘The Owners’ Blu-ray Review

‘The Owners’ Blu-ray Review
The home invasion sub-genre has been spun more than a few times in Hollywood. With The Owners from co-writer and director Julius Berg, a complete subversion takes the concept of expecting the unexpected a little too far.

Maisie Williams of Game of Thrones fame headlines a rather short cast list that by virtue of simple math eliminates a series of grizzly deaths. Make no mistake; there is death, and the fun in trying to figure out who will live and who won't is alive and well.

For Williams, her character is literally and figuratively along for the ride. When her boyfriend decides to change their family's ill financial fortunes around by robbing an old couple, she's stuck tagging along.

The problem with Williams' character Mary, her boyfriend Nathan, friend with the inside scoop Terry, and Nathan's off-his-rocker friend Gaz is that they aren't particularly likable. You don't really want any

Susan Rovner, who had served as Warner Bros. TV president, also left the studio last month, to take a top programming role with NBCUniversal. Rovner had been seen as Roth’s likely successor.

I’ve always wanted to see the Lord of The Rings lore be expanded beyond the movies. The trilogy was just perfection, so The Hobbit trilogy should’ve lived up to that, right? Yeah, no. That’s unfortunate, especially for guys like me. I’m a Lord of The Rings nut and I’m itching to see more of Middle-earth. My hopes were answered with this upcoming series coming to Amazon Prime.

Game of Thrones: 5 Ways Joffrey Was A Terrible King (& 5 Ways Tommen Was Worse)

Game of Thrones: 5 Ways Joffrey Was A Terrible King (& 5 Ways Tommen Was Worse)
Although Game of Thrones is a television series that is so grand in scope and scale that no other TV show in history can really compete with it, on some level the series feels like the story of many bad kings and queens who are all terrible at their jobs in different ways.

Two of the major kings that sat on the Iron Throne throughout the show were Joffrey and Tommen Baratheon. After Tywin Lannister spent years building up House Lannister, these two ineffectual kings nearly brought their house and the Seven Kingdoms itself falling down around them, and they were both awful kings in very different ways.

Gwendoline Christie and Brienne of Tarth are joined at the hip, and the two seem to have been destined for each other. It is not clear whether George R. R. Martin had Gwendoline on his mind when he included the tall masculine sword maiden in his books, but the description was perfectly suited to Gwendoline Christie.
