Will There Ever Be a Dexter Reboot? Michael C. Hall Says "It's a Possibility"

I've never been betrayed so deeply than I was on the night of Sept. 22, 2013: the night Dexter aired its series finale.

Ok, Ok, it wasn't that serious. But after sticking with Michael C. Hall's titular antihero - a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Pd by day, a serial killer who only murders other serial killers by night - for a long eight seasons, the series finale was the ultimate letdown. The creative forces behind the Showtime thriller decided to end the series with one of the most bizarre, unsatisfying twists in TV history, one that fans (myself included) are still confused by.

Instead of letting Dexter die in a meaningful sacrifice or be the dad he always wished he could be, the character decides to abandon his young son with a known murderer (The Handmaid's Tale's Yvonne Strahovski) and leave Florida so he can become . . . a lumberjack.

MipTV Quiet, Canneseries Divides Opinions

Cannes — MipTV closed Thursday its quietest edition in years, wracked by French air and rail strikes, dreary weather and most important market change and larger competition from February’s BBC Showcase and May’s L.A. Screenings.

2018 MipTV attendance came in around 10,000, said Laurine Garaude, director of Reed Midem’s Television Division, which organizes the content trade fair. That compares to official estimates of 11,000 for 2016 and 10,500 for 2017. Some “hundreds” of participants were no-shows because of the strikes, addedJerome Delhaye, Reed Midem director of the entertainment division.

In a bigger picture, however, as broadcast networks restructure as content creator-owners, not passive broadcasters of acquired product,

TV Review: Harlan Coben’s ‘Safe’ on Netflix

When you walk past a rack of books in an airport, you’re likely to see a few by Harlan Coben. There’s a reason his books are popular, even among those not about to board a long flight. Like his new TV thriller “Safe,” they are efficient suspense delivery systems, and any deficiencies in character development are usually overshadowed by the satisfying tick-tock nature of the plot and the interlocking mysteries threatening upscale people who find themselves spiraling into trouble.

“Safe,” Coben’s second foray into TV after the U.K. series “The Five,” has a mostly British cast,

Michael C. Hall plays a Brit in his new series “Safe” and relishes the challenge. “As an American actor, I often see people from the U.K. or Australia or anywhere else come and play Americans and that’s perfectly acceptable, but I like the idea of turning the tables,” he told Variety from Cannes.

Eight-part drama “Safe” will play on Netflix internationally and on Canal+’s C8 channel in France. Hall plays Tom, a pediatric surgeon who is raising his two teenage daughters Jenny and Carrie alone after the death of his wife. When Jenny sneaks out and goes to a party,

Why John Wick 2? Why’ve you made a second one?

There’s all the fiduciary reasons for the studio. For me, on a personal level, we were very fortunate. The first movie did really well. My partner Dave (Leicht), and I got a lot of other offers to do projects and step into other people’s shoes and do other sequels.

36 Actors Who Could Be The 007th James Bond

Simon Columb with 36 actors who could be the 007th James Bond…

Straight off the bat, we’ve got to be open-minded about what defines James Bond. I’d argue that James Bond needs to be have a smart, smooth presentation with a brawling, rough depth beneath the surface. The whole backstory needs to be buried in the character. He needs to be ever-so-slightly uncomfortable in a tuxedo but to such a small extent that it carries the swagger that demands the attention of others in the room. There’s no particular figure, height, age or race that defines this presentation. Being a bit smarmy with the ladies is almost an expectation – especially as ‘Bond Girl’ is so rooted in the series. But, considering M was the Bond Girl in Skyfall, I can appreciate this may need a slight update. Nevertheless, a Jane Bond can’t be entirely off the table.

Watch a montage of Jason Statham punching people

Since his debut in Guy Ritchie’s 1998 film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, actor Jason Statham has emerged in the past few years as one of the leading action heroes currently working, with his popularity being proven by the fact that the Transporter series, which he headlined for the first three films, has gone on to a tv show adaptation and will be rebooted in theatres next weekend with The Transporter Refueled. That’s not the only action franchise Statham has headlined, however, as he has also been the leading man in the Crank films and been a part of the Expendables franchise and, more recently, the Fast and Furious franchise.

Action heroes often have to throw lots of punches onscreen, and Statham has been no exception in this regard. Now the youtube channel Burger Fiction has put together a compilation of the numerous punches Statham has thrown onscreen
