Erster Teaser zu Netflix' Marvel-Serie The Punisher, einem „Spinoff“ aus Netflix Daredevil, das ich wahrscheinlich sehr viel lieber sehen werde, als deren Daredevil (wobei ich den im Gegensatz zu, sagen wir mal, Iron Fist, noch ganz gerne mochte). Endlich eine angemessene Verfilmung nach dem Lundgren-Trash und den beiden misratenen Reboot-Versuchen von 2004 und 2008. Und Jon Bernthal geht in der Rolle völlig auf, nach dem großartigen ersten Auftritt in Daredevil habe ich recht hohe Erwartungen.

Dazu unten weitere Trailer zu Ai WeiWeis Refugee-Doku Human Flow, zur Doku 30 Years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story, zum Alien-Invasion-Trash-Sequel Beyond Skyline, sowie zu Marvels The Defenders.

Marvel's The Punisher

Jon Bernthal will reprise his role as Frank Castle from Marvel’s Daredevil where he’s joined by newcomers Ben Barnes as Billy Russo (the civilian name of the villain Jigsaw), Frank’s Castle’s best friend from his days in the Special Forces who runs a successful private military corporation called “Anvil;” Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Micro, a former NSA analyst whose secrets may be of great value to Frank Castle and everyone around them; and Amber Rose Revah (Indian Summers, Son of God) as Dinah Madani; a highly-trained sophisticated Homeland Security agent who is vexed by the Punisher.

Also in the cast are Daniel Webber (11.22.63) as Lewis Walcott, a young veteran who has had a difficult time re-assimilating into Civilian Society; Jason R. Moore (A Lonely Place for Dying) as Curtis Hoyle, a friend of Frank Castle’s and one of the few people who knows he is alive; Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie) as Rawlins, a high-ranking member of the CIA whose operations in Afghanistan intersect with Frank Castle; Jaime Ray Newman (Bates Motel) plays Sarah Lieberman, Micro’s wife whose marriage has made her life far more complicated; and Michael Nathanson (The Knick, Wolf of Wall Street) as Sam Stein, a Homeland agent who is challenged by his partnership with Dinah (Amber Rose Revah).

Newsbits:

  • Cool: ‘Galaxy Quest’ TV Series Is Back on Track with Paul Scheer Writing
  • The obvious is strong in this one: Obi-Wan Kenobi Is Getting a ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off
  • ‘The Jetsons’ Live-Action Reboot From Robert Zemeckis Lands At ABC As Put Pilot: „It’s the future, and The Jetsons are back. A multi-camera, live-action reboot of the 1960s Hanna-Barbera animated series, executive produced by Back To the Future‘s Robert Zemeckis, has landed at ABC with a put pilot commitment. The new version will be written by Gary Janetti, who has background in both multi-camera and animated comedy series, having worked on NBC’s Will & Grace and Fox’s Family Guy. Warner Bros. TV, whose sibling Warner Bros. Animation absorbed Hanna-Barbera two decades ago, is the studio.“
  • Sounds good tbh: ‘The Birds’ TV Remake Coming from the BBC and Harry Potter Producer:

    the BBC is going to follow author Daphne du Maurier‘s 1952 novel more than Hitchcock’s film. Heyman’s Heyday Television is behind the production. They’ve tapped writer and playwright Conor McPherson to adapt Maurier’s novel which isn’t McPherson’s first time adapting the story.

    In 2009, McPherson turned the story of birds gone mad into a stage play, which debuted at the Gate Theater in Dublin. In the play, McPherson followed a handful of characters trying to survive in a New England home. The birds never actually appeared on the stage in the play. The great Ciaran Hinds (Munich) starred in the original production.

    The story remains set not long after World War II. Again, the residents of a quiet town find themselves under attack from birds and seagulls. McPherson’s version will follow a farmhand, not Melanie Daniels (played by Tippi Hedren in the original movie). The story will also take place in Cornwall, England, not San Francisco, as it did in Hitchcock and writer Evan Hunter’s adaptation.

30 Years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story

In the 1980′s some eclectic underground cartoonists parodied a popular doll craze. The resulting trading cards/stickers tapped into an international zeitgeist that was brewing in a young generation who felt that this product spoke to the revulsion they had for the corporate junk that was being fed to them. Learn the truth behind the myth of The Garbage Pail Kids, the lawsuit that ensued and the resulting iconic status!

This documentary revisits the artists who made these collectibles famous, showing a rare glimpse into the corporate culture of Topps as they launched Garbage Pail Kids through the height of the cards fame, the downfall from the legal battle with the Cabbage Patch kids and their untimely demise. The film is jam packed with interviews of over a half dozen artists. Each artist penned these counter-culture trading cards and each artist shares the inside stories.

Human Flow

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.

Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

Beyond Skyline

The Defenders

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
