20 Pokémon Evolutions So Powerful They Should Be Banned

The 2019 Pokémon Vgc rules were first revealed in August 2018, and they promised a shifting format that would take three different forms, starting in September 2018 and running through till August 2019. The new Vgc rules are split into three different series, the Sun series, which started in September and will end in January, the Moon series, which will run from January till April, and the Ultra series, which will run from April to August

Each of the three series will have different rules, with Sun banning Mega Evolutions and Z-Moves, the Moon series just banning Mega Evolutions, and the Ultra series allowing everything. The only Pokémon that will be banned throughout the 2019 Vgc tournament are the Mythical Pokémon, and Ash-Greninja. The fact that the 2019 Vgc tournament will be allowing almost every item, move, and Pokémon in the game means that the Ultra series is going to be incredibly chaotic.

It's well-known that some Pokémon are overpowered,

Stacy Martin Joins Gavin Rothery’s Sci-Fi Movie ‘Archive’ (Exclusive)
Stacy Martin will star in “Archive,” the sci-fi movie from Gavin Rothery, the concept designer on Duncan Jones’ film “Moon.”

Martin (“Vox Lux”) will star opposite Theo James (“Divergent”) in “Archive.” Set in a remote secret facility that works on artificial intelligence, the film follows George (James), who is developing a new AI prototype. But he is hiding a secret ulterior motive; to be reunited with his dead wife.

Independent is producing and selling the film internationally with Xyz handling sales in the North America. The film is financed by Quickfire, Lipsync and Cofiloisirs. It will shoot in Hungary, starting later this month.

Rothery penned the screenplay. He directed the short “The Last Man”; “Archive” is his feature directorial debut. Philip Herd and Cora Palfrey of Independent are producing alongside James. “Gavin has crafted a sci-fi film for the ages,” Herd said. “It’s incredibly satisfying to see such an

An Artist's Eyes review – touching portrait of a rock'n'roll painter

In an affecting documentary, veteran director Jack Bond sketches Chris Moon’s personal struggles – and his startling way of creating art

Over his eight decades, director Jack Bond has accumulated one of the most cultured and quietly cultish filmographies in British cinema, having signed off on 1979’s avant-garde sci-fi Anti-Clock (rediscovered on the BFI’s Flipside label), the ripe-for-revival Pet Shop Boys curio It Couldn’t Happen Here (1987) and Adam Ant study The Blueblack Hussar (2014).

This profile of punkish Essex-based painter Chris Moon opens with a coup de cinéma to rank alongside anything in those defining art movies La Belle Noiseuse or The Quince Tree Sun: 10 minutes in which Moon, fag in mouth, daubs a jet-black canvas with coloured streaks that get stripped back to reveal new shapes and shades.

Sabo Highjacks Halloween Billboard, Turns Maxine Waters Into a Killer

Sabo Highjacks Halloween Billboard, Turns Maxine Waters Into a Killer
A Halloween billboard in West Hollywood has been commandeered by pro-Donald Trump street artist Sabo. The conservative artist climbed up to the billboard and pasted a massive picture of Maxine Waters' face over Michael Myers. The advertisement now looks like Congresswoman Waters is stabbing a victim with the hashtag "uncivil" on one side and "democrats," on the other. While Sabo didn't pick the most flattering picture of Waters, the billboard looks like he spent some time to get the dimensions to match up with The Shape's face.

With the midterm elections only a few weeks away, Democrats and Republicans have been going after each other through the press, TV ads, internet ads, and everything in between. Targeting the Halloween billboard is pretty smart since it's the biggest movie of the weekend and it's also in a prime location. When asked why he specifically targeted Maxine Waters in his latest piece of work,

Flashback: Keith Moon Gives His Final TV Interview a Month Before His Death

Flashback: Keith Moon Gives His Final TV Interview a Month Before His Death
It was exactly 40 years ago today that Who drummer Keith Moon was found dead at a London flat owned by Harry Nilsson after overdosing on clomethiazole, which he was prescribed to alleviate his alcohol withdrawal symptoms. By tragic coincidence, it was the exact same apartment where Cass Elliott of the Mamas & the Papas died four years earlier. Moon was just 32, but his rampant drug and alcohol use and madcap lifestyle that earned him the nickname “Moon the Loon” had bloated his once svelte frame and made him look about a

Duncan Jones to director Killer Intent TV series

Fresh from the news that he’s set to direct a big screen adaptation of 2000 Ad’s Rogue Trooper, it has now been announced that Duncan Jones is set to direct and executive produce the TV series Killer Intent.

Based on the novel by Tony Kent, who is also leading the writers room for the series, Killer Intent follows the adventures of intelligence agent Joe Dempsey, Irish lawyer Michael Devlin and American television journalist Sarah Truman.

“It’s an extraordinary honor to have Duncan Jones and Liberty Films adapting Killer Intent for TV,” said Kent. “I’m absolutely blown away to be working with such outstanding talent, particularly as I have been a big fan going right back to the release of Moon almost 10 years ago.”

Jones’ most recent film Mute was released on Netflix earlier this year, and was met with mixed reviews. Read ours here.

‘The Innocents’ Trailer: A Supernatural ‘Curse’ Jeopardizes Lives and Young Love in New Netflix Series — Watch

Netflix received critical acclaim early this year for an eight-episode (so far) British series about teen runaways who fall for one another, “The End of the F***ing World.” The streaming service hopes for a successful repeat with “The Innocents,” and just debuted that show’s newest trailer. While “The End of the F***ing World” featured a possible-psychopath protagonist, “The Innocents” stars Sorcha Groundsell (“Clique”) as a young woman who shape-shifts, transforming herself into humans who bear little resemblance to her blue-eyed self.

Groundsell’s June McDaniel learns of her unique ability after she and fellow classmate Harry Polk (Percell Ascott) flee their stern families. Well, what’s left of their families: June’s mother, a fellow shape-shifter, abandoned her three years ago, worried about harming her child. Golden Globe nominee Guy Pearce (“Mildred Pierce”) plays Halvorson, a professor who vows to reconnect and cure mother and daughter.

Mute Director Duncan Jones Set to Direct His First TV Series with Killer Intent

Duncan Jones, the director behind Moon, Warcraft, and Mute, is set to direct his first TV series, which will be an adaptation of the novel thriller Killer Intent. As a fan of Jones and his work, it's good to see him jump on another project, which I'm sure he'll end up directing before he gets to his recently announced film Rogue Trooper. Just in case you're not familiar with Killer Intent, here's some information:

Killer Intent is the first in a series of thrillers about a Jack Reacher-type intelligence agent Joe Dempsey. In the novel, when an attempted assassination sparks a chain reaction of dangerous events across London, Britain’s elite security forces are powerless to stop the chaos threatening to overwhelm the Government. As a dark conspiracy unfolds, three strangers find their fates entwined: Dempsey; Sarah Truman, a CNN reporter determined to get her headline; and Michael Devlin, a

‘Moon’ Director Duncan Jones to Helm ‘Killer Intent’ TV Series Adaptation
Duncan Jones will be directing his first TV series with an adaptation of the spy thriller Killer Intent. It’s a little out of the wheelhouse of the Moon director, who has mostly stuck with sci-fi and fantasy for most of his promising career — and sci-fi and fantasy movies at that. But after the lukewarm response to his cyberpunk […]

Duncan Jones to Direct TV Adaptation of ‘Killer Intent’
Duncan Jones, who won a BAFTA for his debut feature “Moon,” is to direct a television adaptation of Tony Kent’s thriller “Killer Intent.” The series will be produced by Liberty Films, the London- and L.A.-based production company of Stuart Fenegan and Jones, who is David Bowie’s son.

Kent will adapt his novel alongside an “American-style writers’ room of established TV talent,” according to a statement. Jones will executive produce alongside Fenegan, who acquired the screen rights for “Killer Intent” in advance of the hardback release earlier this year.

It will be Liberty’s first foray into television. Jones and Fenegan have previously worked exclusively in feature films with credits such as “Moon,” “Source Code,” “Warcraft” and “Mute.”

Jones said: “Tony’s writing style is already so cinematic, working with him and a room of writers to adapt his first book will be a thrill. I’m

‘Our House’ Is Beholden To Horror Clichés But Sadly Lacks Any Real Scares [Fantasia Review]

Anthony Scott Burns’ latest film “Our House” certainly took the scenic route from concept to screen. The Canadian horror movie—making its World Premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in advance of its multi-platform release via IFC Midnight—is a remake of a U.S. indie from 2010, “Ghost in the Machine” (also known as “Phasma Ex Machina”). Burns’ and writer Nathan Parker (“Moon”) refashioned the sci-fi concept into something a little more domesticated and spooky, in addition to pumping up the production values.

Duncan Jones Will Direct A Comic Book Film Next But It Reportedly Won’t Be For DC

Duncan Jones started his filmmaking career with a bang, helming two films that are were fairly well lauded, “Moon” and “Source Code.” Then, last year, he released the big-budget “Warcraft,” which was highly-anticipated but didn’t have the impact that he might have desired. The film was looked at as a disappointment while making a fair amount of money overseas. Then, the most recent film, Netflix Original “Mute,” was released and you probably didn’t even know about it.

Warcraft Director Takes on Mystery Comic Book Movie

Warcraft Director Takes on Mystery Comic Book Movie
Warcraft director Duncan Jones has revealed that he's directing a comic book movie as his next project. Unfortunately, for the time being, that's all he's really willing to tell us about it. Though, he did add that it's a "special one" and that he would be teasing a bit more about it in a few days. So, the question naturally becomes, what comic book is Jones going to be adapting for the big screen?

Then again, who's to say it's going to be for the big screen at all? Duncan Jones directed Mute for Netflix. Maybe he's got something brewing with the streaming service again? When it comes to what we know for sure, Jones took to Twitter to make the initial reveal, saying that he's nervous but clearly excited about what he's got cooking. Here's what he had to say about it.

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making

Sam Rockwell on Playing a Nazi in Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and the Bob Fosse Biopic He’s Dreaming of Making
Sam Rockwell isn’t slowing down. A few months after winning every award under the sun for his performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” the actor is back in theaters with another distinctly American film: “Woman Walks Ahead,” which required him to saddle up as a cowboy and learn the Lakota language alongside Jessica Chastain. The recent Oscar winner isn’t stateside for the release of Susanna White’s 1890’s period piece about Sitting Bull and the woman who traveled across the country to paint his portrait, however — he’s in Prague, where production on “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waiti’s outrageous-sounding “Jojo Rabbit” is underway.

“It is the greatest script I’ve read in so long,” Rockwell said over the phone of the dark comedy that Waititi hopes will “piss off a lot of racists.” Asked about his character, Captain Klenzendorf, the actor
