It’s Family First In ‘Luke Cage’ Season Two

After the events that unfolded in season one of the hit Netflix/Marvel series “Luke Cage” we were a bit unsure of just where season two would pick up for Harlem’s hero Luke Cage, as he was certainly dealing with his new found fame on the streets and wrestling with the idea of being a super hero overall.

Deep down Luke Cage truly wants to be a normal guy, however his bulletproof skin and extreme strength certainly forced him almost unwillingly into the spotlight. In season two we find Luke Cage dealing with an increasing need to protect his beloved Harlem, while also coming to the realization that despite his abilities he doesn’t always have the ability to save everyone, especially those that do not want to be saved.

There are several times throughout the beginning of season two that we see Luke walking the thin line between

Lucy Liu Lists Craftsman-Inspired Home in Studio City’s Fryman Canyon
New York City-based actress Lucy Liu has decided to part with her long-time, celeb-pedigreed residence on the West Coast, listing her “modern craftsman” style home in the celeb-saturated Fryman Canyon area of Studio City, Calif., at $4.199 million. Tucked securely behind gates at the end of a private driveway shared with a couple of other multi-million dollar homes, the unassuming residence, which Liu picked up in 2001 for an unrecorded amount from Oscar and Golden Globe winning actress Patricia Arquette, was built in the late 1950s and measures in at 4,098-square-feet over two floors with four bedrooms and five bathrooms, all of them featuring vintage copper and nickel ceiling tiles and slathered in handmade ceramic floor and wall tiles.

A discreet front door set into a tree-shielded and vine-enshrouded porch opens to a humbly proportioned entrance hall that zigzags over to a suite of interconnected living and entertaining spaces arranged around a

Official New Trailer For James Franco and Milla Jovovich's Post-Apocalyptic Action Film Future World

Last week, a trailer was released for a new sci-fi western-style film produced by Lionsgate called Future World. That was not an official trailer and the studio asked us to take the post down until the official trailer was released. Well now the official trailer has been released and my opinion of it hasn't changed. It still looks awful. Below you will find my original post, along with a new synopsis and the official trailer.

Future World was co-directed by and stars James Franco. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world exactly like Mad Max, and it looks like a pretty terrible film. I don't know how Franco went from directing a great film like The Disaster Artist, to this Future World movie, but he did, and I don't know what he was thinking! Maybe he thought it would be fun?

He even managed to bring a decent cast

New Trailer & Poster For James Franco, Suki Waterhouse Starrer ‘Future World’

A new poster and trailer for the James Franco and Suki Waterhouse film Future World has just dropped online.

Inside a desert oasis, a queen (Lucy Liu) lays dying as her son Prince (Jeffrey Wahlberg) travels across barren waste lands to find a near-mythical medicine to save her life. After evading violent raiders on motorbikes led by the Warlord (James Franco) and his enforcer (Cliff “Method Man” Smith), Prince meets Ash (Suki Waterhouse), the Warlord’s robot sex companion-assassin who’s in search of her own soul. As Prince is captured by the Druglord (Milla Jovovich), the Warlord’s forces roar in – and Prince fights to save the remnants of humanity.

There’s no specific UK release date as yet, but Us audiences can see this in cinemas and on demand from May 25th. Here’s the new trailer.

‘Future World’ Trailer: James Franco Is Max Mad

The new trailer for the upcoming movie Future World has dropped – and its fantastic. Not to say it looks good, it’s just something that looks great. Directed by James Franco and Bruce Thierry Cheung, the movie looks like a straight-up Mad Max rip-off. The movie has a chance to be fun, but that depends on how the actors treat the material.

It’s hard for me to believe this is a real movie, but it’s happening. I suppose without further adieu – here’s the trailer:

This certainly looks like a strange movie. Sex-robots and the apocalypse. That’s a choice. We’ll see how the movie is received when its released May 25th on VOD and in select cities.

Another New Trailer for Awful Post-Apocalyptic 'Future World' Film

"She's the perfect woman, right? Incorruptible - god I love that!" Lionsgate has released another official trailer for the film Future World, a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi action western. We featured another trailer for this last week, but was pulled off the web. Now we have this one and it doesn't look any better. Still looks like a straight-up rip-off of Mad Max, with sand motorcycles, grungy cars and everything. The story involves some kind of boy searching for a rumored cure for his dying mother, but is actually about a robot woman? I don't really know. James Franco co-directs, and stars along with Milla Jovovich, Lucy Liu, Margarita Levieva, Suki Waterhouse, Method Man, Snoop Dogg, Elisha Henig, and Scott Haze. So I'm only posting this just to add it here, but don't really care to ever watch this. Don't have time to waste on this junk. Here's the official Us trailer

Model/Actress Milla Jovovich and filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson listed one of the several multi-million dollar homes they own in Beverly Hills, Calif., with an asking price of $4.5 million.

‘Future World’ Trailer: James Franco Rips Off ‘Mad Max,’ But Milla Jovovich and Lucy Liu Could Save the Day
Following the success of “The Disaster Artist,” James Franco will star in the sci-fi thriller “Future World,” which he co-directed. Using a color palette and costume design that bears an uncanny resemblance to both the original “Mad Max” as well as 2016’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Future World” features car chases, cyborgs, and at least one reference to “the perfect woman.” Commence eye roll.

The movie stars Suki Waterhouse as a cyborg assassin known as a “synthetic,” who is coveted by the likes of Franco, Milla Jovovich, and Snoop Dogg for her powers. Though it’s unclear exactly what’s going on, she begins to malfunction and goes renegade in an effort to save a potential love interest. The film also stars Lucy Liu as a character known only as “The Queen.

Future World” is co-directed by Bruce Thierry Cheung, the cinematographer who lensed Franco’s previous directorial efforts, “In Dubious Battle,
