The Blade Runner sequel adds an intriguing actor, while Transformers 5 adds a familiar face. The Legends of Tomorrow will encounter a major, real-life historical figure. And someone tries to explain why the hell the Tetris movie needs to be a trilogy. Spoilers, form the head!
Transformers 5: The Last Knight
Tyrese Gibson is returning after all. He told Entertainment Tonight:
Let’s just say 2017, summertime, it’s going to be a lot of energy out there in the universe: Fast 8, Transformers 5, another album…
Blade Runner 2
Barkhard Abdi, Tom Hanks’ co-star in Captain Phillips, has joined the cast. There are of course zero details about who he’s playing.
Pics of Wonder Woman have surfaced:
There’s also this new bit of concept art for the team, which gives us a better look at Cyborg, as well as the Flash’s junk.
Last but not least, J.K. Simmons explained those pictures of him looking so buff that recently made the rounds, and they have nothing to do with Commissioner Gordon or Justice League.
This is all coincidental. After the second and final time that I got hugely fat in my life and when I lost that weight six or seven years ago, I pretty much decided that I was going to stay in decent shape for the rest of my life. I was not in good shape at all. I was overweight and soft and here I am playing the head of the Aryan Brotherhood in this maximum-security prison in the first-ever HBO original drama and I was watching the first season when it came out and I just thought, ‘Wow, I don’t believe this guy at all. I have to get my ass to the gym and be a believable hard-ass.
Star Trek Beyond
There’s some new footage in this TV spot:
We knew the movie based on the video game that has neither story nor characters would be a trilogy. But according to producer Larry Kasanoff, Tetris is “big science-fiction movie” is a “big story” that needs three movies to be told right.” As for the plot:
I came up with the idea as I was thinking about Tetris and the theme of creating order out of chaos. I guarantee you it’s not what you think. No one has come remotely close to figuring out what we’re doing.
Legends of Tomorrow
A “disillusioned” and “snarky” Albert Einstein may be showing up:
Look for the Legends of Tomorrow crew to cross paths with a circa-1942 Albert Einstein in Season 2, but they’re disillusioned to discover that the legendary scientist is a snarky, brusque skirt-chaser. Needless to say, he proves to be quite a handful when they attempt to save his life.
Game of Thrones
In case all the other GoT news hasn’t quite sated you, co-showrunner D.B. Weiss has some things to say about Cersei’s future:
That’s what so much of next season is going to be about; finding out what Cersei’s mind-set is. Who is she? While Cersei has certainly done a lot of horrible things in her life and she could be a very cruel person, the one thing that was redemptive about her was, she genuinely loved her children. Now they’re all gone, and I think that is very interesting for us. Who is she without her children? The answer is something you’ll find out next season. That’s so much of what is to come that I’ll just give it away if I start delving into it now.
