‘Atomic Blonde’: Charlize Theron takes no prisoners in new photo

It’s no longer clear who is friend or foe. “I’m 41 and I’m in an action movie that people really responded to,” she says, reflecting back on that evening. “We worked our balls off on this movie,” says Theron, who simultaneously worked with screenwriter Kurt John­stad (300) to turn The Coldest City into what Leitch calls “punk-rock noir.” This is a spy with serious edge. Her wardrobe contrasts with that of her Berlin contact David Percival (James McAvoy), who has clearly been in the fraught city for too long. He put Theron through her paces during an intensive three-month boot camp where she trained four-to-five hours a day to tackle stunts she initially thought were impossible. Leitch doesn’t want to give away his tricks on how he made it click, but according to Theron, the crew worked on the scene for four days with an editor on site, cutting it as they shot it. During the post-screening Q&A, Theron choked up, moved by the audience’s ­reaction. As Theron and Kono developed the script over the years, that line stuck in Theron’s head. “I didn’t want to just play some straightforward agent,” Theron says, “because how boring to watch is that?”
Nothing about Atomic Blonde is boring. “I wanted there to be that strange thing of it being really cold all the time and yet there is flesh on show. “I was keen to be slightly underdressed at all times,” McAvoy says.

McAvoy attributes Leitch’s talent to the vast experience he’s had on film sets (Leitch often works directing and coordinating stunts on two movies a year.) “David’s grown up on movie sets, and he likes standing among a group of 100 people making an impossible image real,” McAvoy says. “That’s a lot, especially for someone who was told throughout her career that she wouldn’t work after 40.”
We dare them to say it to her face now. To me that speaks to a lack of self-care.”
Theron and Leitch’s interest in testing the limits extended to the fight scenes, notably a 12-minute pièce de résistance that plays as one long brutal sequence where Theron ­battles multiple foes in a stairwell. “We were shooting it continuously, and every day the cut kept working,” she says. They sparked to it immediately, specifically the film’s unapologetic protagonist, British secret agent Lorraine Broughton, who’s dropped into 1989 Berlin just as the wall is poised to crumble. “And for that, he was a joy to work with.”
Atomic Blonde debuted in March at the SXSW Film Festival to a raucous response. Don’t forget to subscribe for more exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW. The creative team took the graphic novel’s original conceit — a rather rule-bound spy is sent behind the Iron Curtain to retrieve a dossier of agents’ identities before the Soviets get it — and amped it up to 11 with a synthesizer-driven ’80s soundtrack, a collection of dangerous characters, and a cool period wardrobe. Back in 2012, Charlize Theron and her producing partner Beth Kono were sent a couple of pages from an upcoming graphic novel, The Coldest City, by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart. “If you want to blend in in Berlin 1989, you probably don’t want to dress like a stuffy Cold War spy,” Leitch says. He has a fondness for his ratty fur coat and a penchant for mesh tank tops. “You’re going to have a bit more of a rock & roll lifestyle.”

Theron’s look — think Debbie Harry meets Brigitte Nielsen — is as fashionable as it is functional, allowing the 5’   9″ former ballet dancer to toss goons down flights of stairs and use her fishnet-clad thighs as a vice. “And how do you make it real?”
The Oscar winner found her answers with stunt choreographer-turned-director David Leitch (John Wick), who worked as a stunt double for both Brad Pitt and Jean-Claude Van Damme before turning to second unit direction on films such as Captain America and Jurassic World, among many others.

Watch a pre-‘Star Wars’ Mark Hamill in the 1977 sitcom ‘Eight Is Enough’

But now, 40 years later, Hamill fans can   watch the future   Luke Skywalker playing a more down-to-earth role in the pilot episode of   Eight Is Enough. Streaming now   on the   Warner Archive, the   family dramedy starred Dick Van Patten and Diana Hyland as a Sacramento couple raising eight children. Mark Hamill became an international star   with his breakout role in 1977’s   Star Wars, so it’s no wonder   that his exploits in the galaxy far, far away overshadowed a   budding sitcom opportunity. In a real-life parallel, Hamill pushed to exit the series   so he could   focus on his movie career. Show Full Article (He was ultimately replaced by   Grant Goodeve, who stuck around for the show’s five seasons.)
Check out a clip of   Hamill in the Eight Is Enough pilot   above. In the pilot episode, Hamill portrayed   eldest son David Bradford, who   considered   striking out on his own after a disagreement with his family.

Silicon Valley: 12 hints about season 4 that involve needles, private jet etiquette, and Dinesh’s hair

“There’s tension because the video chat looks like it could be the big break and the financial windfall they’ve been looking for, but Richard feels like he’s a concert pianist and he’s playing 12-bar blues. Mother hen Erlich tries to hatch more golden eggs in his incubator. Miller) aims to   “expand his footprint and put irons in other fires,” notes   Berg. “If Richard and the rest of the guys are at odds, Jared [Zach Woods] supports Richard and Richard’s goals, but he also supports the company,” says Berg. In advance of Sunday’s season 4 premiere of Silicon Valley,   you probably have been asking   yourself and/or Siri: What happens when Pied Piper makes a big pivot and repositions itself as a video chat company? “Will the company come back together, or will the guys split up?” he says. This season, as reinvention is pursued, that success goes right to his head. Tensions may start at a cruising altitude of 35,000 feet. But given Barker’s competitive nature, “he’s brought the wolf into the hen house, and the power struggles within Hooli start to get dangerous for Gavin,” says Berg. “Just when you think you’re rid of him,” says Berg, “he comes back to complicate your life.”
Silicon Valley airs Sundays at 10 p.m. Allow Berg to explain: “Gilfoyle [Martin Starr] is torn because, on the one hand, all he wants is for Dinesh to be miserable, but on the other hand, if Dinesh’s misery comes from the failure of the company, then Gilfoyle’s company is failing also. Yang) has a   big idea   cooking, and sooner than later, Erlich will come sniffing around. Look for our   Wired coverboy (Josh Brener) to extend his empire of ignorance in an unexpected way. Poor Jared — he’ll be torn by the turmoil within Pied Piper. Pursuing a pie-in-the-sky concept of a decentralized internet, Richard becomes   lost in a   fit of inspiration… or just lost   down   an ill-fated wormhole. “Dinesh has strong opinions that this thing that he was responsible for putting together is becoming ‘the thing,’ and he’s pretty proud of that,” says Berg. What else can you expect in the coming weeks? The presence of deceased   managing partner of Raviga/noted sesame seed savant Peter Gregory (the late Christopher Evan Welch) will be felt early in season 4: Richard’s Big Idea may share something in common with one of Peter’s. Or somewhere else. In related Jared news, Berg says that the audience will   learn that he has “some skills that he had picked up when he had to learn how to survive on the streets.”   How about a   clue? He’s trying to get other occupants of his incubators on the path to riches.” Which brings us to the question…
8. “Erlich realizes that maybe he’s given Richard so much attention that he’s neglected his duties to Jian Yang, and he starts to concentrate on making Jin Yiang more successful.” But   Jian Yang may not be interested in this partnership. “He’s still trying to get Pied Piper over the finish line, but he realizes that his bread might be buttered in other places. And this   guy is none other than self-consumed, d-baggy   billionaire and former Pied Piper investor   Russ Hanneman (Chris Diamantopolous). Or a mad man. Do you chase the ultimate dream, or do you take the bird in hand?”
3. 1. It’s not the ultimate high purpose that he’s looking for. Show Full Article “He rightly or wrongly thinks he should be steering the ship, and there’s a bit of resentment toward Richard — and also this arrogance. And what also happens when   CEO Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) doesn’t quite share that same vision? Big Head will do little to shoot up the ranks again. The innocuous manboy — who has racked   up more undeserved promotions than anyone   —   continues to fail upwards and “is increasingly unaware of his surroundings,” says Berg. Is Jian Yang the next Richard? “There may be hair, make-up, and wardrobe adjustments.”
4. “The arc of the season involves Richard’s discovery of what he believes to be the ideal use of his compression technology and his efforts to pursue that in the face of internal and external struggle. This guy! Or maybe both. Gilfoyle has complicated feelings about Dinesh. “And I think Laurie’s blind spot is she’s driven by math, not by her heart, which may or may not exist.”
11. It’s time to pay the piper — or, rather, watch it try to reinvent itself. Even though the Pied Piper pivot to video chat appears promising, “Richard has this kind of nagging feeling that maybe it’s not the ideal use of his algorithms,” Berg tells EW. Monica (Amanda Crew) may have sided the Pied Piper crew at the end of last season, but there will be a price to be paid for that loyalty with her boss at Raviga, humanbot Laurie (Suzanne Cryer). What has two thumbs and three commas? So, he has the 10-year plan in mind, but part of the struggle is: How do you get people to start adopting this thing now? “We always think it’s funny when people who have everything fight over the most trivial of things,” says Berg. Apologies for that slightly disturbing metaphor, but Erlich (T.J. You can’t say, ‘Oh, in 10 years if you use this, here’s a good thing that will happen,’ because nobody’s going to stick it out for 10 years. Also, something burns down, and someone gets needles stuck in their face.”
Like   we said: pointed comedy. Peter Gregory’s legacy lives on. Monica will help Richard on that front. “She’s on the outs, so she’s trying to battle to get back into Laurie’s good graces,” says Berg. The defiant squatter (played by Jimmy O. Does he ride this wave or does he bring it to a crashing halt in order to steer the company toward something else?”
2. “Having risen to the top of the tech business in spite of himself,” says Berg, “he begins to broaden his horizons and rise to the top of other professions in spite of being utterly unqualified.”
7. Is Gavin Barker-ing up the wrong   tree? “But Laurie is a hard target to hit. Richard is a digital   revolutionary. Here’s this pot of good at the end of the rainbow, he thinks. That price includes an unwanted office relocation. Jared is a man divided in a divided house. “Private jet etiquette becomes a bone of contention.”

12. Pied Piper’s   lead engineer   (played by Kumail Nanjiani) saved the day at the end of last season by helping to turn Pied Piper into a video chat company. “To him, success is the best technology, not necessarily the biggest financial windfall. ET/PT on HBO. Hooli chief   Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) brought former Pied Piper boss Jack Barker (Stephen Tobolowsky) into the company fold last season. “Each character defines success in a different way, and Richard is the dreamer,” says Berg. First up: Second thoughts for   Richard. You’re going to see him buy his own hype.” How bad does it get? “As Richard mentally and physically decomposes under the stress of his job,” he says, “Jared’s job of keeping him standing gets tougher.”
6. Berg uploads a dozen   helpful   hints below. … He has this idea, he doesn’t even know how to accomplish it, and he’s trying to figure out what about this idea is something that people will be excited about? Monica is in the doghouse with Laurie. “Monica’s role in the company has always been to be the steward of Peter Gregory’s quality-over-quantity [philosophy] — invest in good things and good companies and help good people and not just make good deals,” says Berg. In fact, “he’s trying to cut Erlich out of his new app.”
9. (See: This trailer in which Richard   tells his friends that he wants to quit and learns that they were about to oust him.) Whereas recent seasons of the pointed tech satire have revolved around pitting Pied Piper   against an external force, this season ratchets up the internal strife and politics, according to Silicon Valley executive producer Alec Berg. Dinesh is dressed for success and/or   ridicule. He wants to see Dinesh fail, but he wants to succeed, and those things are at odds.”
5. Laurie is inventing ways to test Monica’s mettle.”

Meet Sofia Boutella, the new Mummy

I think she’s a complex character. I researched a lot about Egyptian mythology and Egyptian civilization. Their effort was minimum. It was important to me that this character had a backstory, you know? When you’re powerful like that, especially in the time, respect was approached differently. I’d never felt like that before. I had to be moved from the table where they were wrapping me to the coffin. Her   story, and where she comes from, is really interesting to play. I really   love her. She can’t be just a monster walking around scaring people. [laughs] I couldn’t talk, too.

Trained as a dancer with a long résumé in music videos, actress Sofia Boutella has exploded on to the blockbuster scene in the last few years with scene-stealing roles in   Kingsman: The Secret Service   and   Star Trek Beyond. Very oppressing! ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:   Can you tell us a little bit about your character’s   backstory? It felt really real. I’ve seen it in the past when I was little, but I wanted to see it again, to look at what Boris Karloff did. I did watch the 1932 one. To explore that psychology in her, what happened to her as a woman: Being deceived, because there’s a boy who comes into the picture all of a sudden. Expect less steam, and much more immortal terror, in   The Mummy, the Universal reboot of its iconic undead monster. I couldn’t move on my own. It felt very claustrophobic. Boutella plays Princess Ahmanet – the first time that the 85-year-old franchise has featured a female character in the title role. The Mummy   is out June 9. In modern times, she comes back, to go after what she was promised to receive, to begin with. The actress talked to EW for our Summer Movie Preview about the roots of Ahmanet’s rage and the research that went into the role. So what’s it like to be buried in a coffin? The Mummy will introduce audiences to a new cinematic universe focused on the Universal monsters. SOFIA BOUTELLA:   I’m an Egyptian princess who is promised to become Pharaoh, and is deceived by her father. I researched kings and queens: How they would carry themselves, how they were painted and portrayed. He removes that promise from her because he has a child, and the child is a son. I enjoyed exploring every aspect of her. They were the   most powerful people, but they were just calm. In   Atomic Blonde, she shares a steamy scene with Charlize Theron. Yes, of course! It’s the first time that you see a female Mummy. There needs to be something significant her shining through. I needed to get inside of Ahmanet, and I needed to find that rhythm. She’s put aside for a   very long time because she became dangerous. People used to respect royalty to an insane extent that doesn’t exist nowadays. Boutella’s got a pair of high-profile roles this summer. Show Full Article What kind of research did you do for getting into the character? It made me feel not that great, to be honest! Given that motivation, her actions seem a little more justified than the typical   monster-movie villain.

‘Once Upon a Time’ star Rebecca Mader teases enlightening Zelena hour

No, I think she is quite a selfish person and was at that point when those two went off into the sunset that it just didn’t even really bother her. Will you be singing in the musical episode? She does not want to be a part of it and doesn’t want to compete with it. She’s kind of perfect, because you’re coming toward the end of the sixth season, and she’s very powerful, and she’s also got this tie with Gideon, and she’s controlling him, but then they’re also really super connected to Rumple, so it’s just like it’s like Facebook: It’s complicated. She’s just a very lonely person, so she is not interested at all in helping this other beautiful British villain that’s come along. Well, it’s another one of those Is it an end of days? It really looks at why she’s alone, and that loneliness, because really now she isn’t alone anymore. The fans are going to go bizonkizoids. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What can you tease of what new history we’re going to get for Zelena? moments. How does that affect her relationship with Regina? She was really abusive, she was terrorizing munchkins, and terrorizing everybody in the Land of Oz, and it’s an echo of that, and then healing that aspect of her that’s broken, because it all comes from her abandonment issues from her mom, and then having really rubbish adoptive parents. Zelena’s not really a fan of sharing the limelight. She’s got a kid, and she’s got her sister back, and with the sister comes all of these people. She’s like, “See you later,” because she never really had a relationship with Evil Queen, and she didn’t even like the real Robin Hood, so the fake Robin Hood really didn’t interest her at all, so I think she was really hashtag uninvested by that departure. It’s like a horrible childhood that she had. She’s very much like she wouldn’t be Diana Ross and the Supremes; she’d just be Diana Ross. Yeah. Not one to wait around, Zelena (Rebecca Mader) wants to take on the Black Fairy (Jaime Murray) alone against Regina’s (Lana Parrilla) wishes. She just wants it gone. It’s going to be like this huge Disney musical, and the fans are going to go nuts. It’s really complicated, and the stakes are really high. It’s still rocky. And these are all original songs? Are you nervous? How worried should fans be about what the Black Fairy has planned for Storybrooke? It’s so good. We’re not going to see you doing “Defying Gravity” or something? Yes. So it’s sort of coming full circle, like being this really lonely abandoned kid to maybe sort of realizing that she isn’t alone, and she doesn’t have to do everything on her own. It’s so good. They’re still finding their way at this point, but I have hope that it will come to a full resolution because I really enjoyed the episode “Sisters” last season, when we remembered that we’d known each other all along; that was a beautiful moment. How does that speak to her interactions with the Black Fairy, especially considering teaming up with the Evil Queen didn’t turn out so well? Which is an echo of her earlier lives in Oz before she even came to Storybrooke. But we get to see a really selfish side of Zelena in this hour? She doesn’t want backup singers. I’m so excited. I’m a little bit uncomfortable, and I’m a little bit nervous, which is a good thing because whenever I feel that way, it’s always something I should do, and then when I do it, I come out the other side and I’m like, “Yeah, nailed it.”
Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8 p.m. I’m very excited. That’s the relationship status all the time. But then we’ve had some setbacks, so I’m hoping that we can resolve all of that towards the very end of the season. No, but it’s kind of like a Once Upon a Time version. REBECCA MADER: We have met the Scarecrow before — I ripped out his brain back when I actually had a boyfriend for a brief second — and all that good stuff with Dorothy, so in this episode, we might meet some other Wizard of Oz peeps. The lone wolf mentality speaks to the flashbacks during Sunday’s episode, which feature a new story in Oz where a younger Zelena befriends the Tin Man. Do you think Zelena would at least be happy that the Evil Queen got a happy ending? She doesn’t want to be part of a band. All I have is my song, and my song is wicked. Show Full Article EW hit the set of the ABC fairy tale drama during the hour to get the scoop from Mader on how this episode will test the sisters. It feels like the stakes are the highest they’ve ever been. There’s an echo between what happens on Oz, and what’s currently going on, because Zelena’s always been on this struggle of being incredibly pained by abandonment, and having a mean dad, and all that stuff. Mais oui. I am. While the Charmings prepare for the upcoming wedding festivities, the Wicked Witch aims to take the fight to the Black Fairy during Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time. We’re going to learn more about why she is the way she is, and why some of the characters became who they are because of her. ET on ABC. There’s just so many defenses up. I do have a song.

‘War for the Planet of the Apes’: Andy Serkis teases Woody Harrelson confrontation

Don’t forget to   subscribe for more exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW. It’s my Apehood!”
War picks up two years after 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, with a brutal conflict raging between Caesar’s apes and soldiers led by Woody Harrelson’s mysterious Colonel. “It’s very rare that an actor can get to play the whole life of a character,” says Serkis, who again donned a performance-capture suit to play the noble primate. The film opens with a stunning ape-versus-human battle through the forest, and Caesar’s journey carries him to the snowy Sierras, but War’s war is ultimately an intimate battle of wills. “It sets him on a revenge mission. When Andy Serkis started playing Caesar in 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the ape was essentially a rebellious teenager. Two films later, Caesar’s aged into a family man — and the commander-in-chief of a society of evolved apes. “But he is fighting for the survival of humanity, as Caesar is fighting for the apes.” Expect a loser, but no real winners. “The Colonel comes across as someone who’s psychotic,” Serkis teases. “It’s Boyhood, but for apes.

‘River Monsters’ host shares his 5 closest brushes with death

“People assume I’m fearless,” Wade allowed, but he maintained that in reality, he gets just as afraid as anyone else. “Once I was landing a small piranha… As I’m reaching to unhook it, it kicked and one of the other points end up in my finger.” He mentioned that the director loved it because there’s nothing like a “moment of real pain,” but obviously, it could have been much worse. “The thing about freshwater is, you can’t see what’s there. Pesky fishing hooks
“I’ve managed to hook myself a couple of times,” Wade said as he thought of his River Monsters shoots. We took a defibrillator.” This was after he heard a local story of someone getting attacked by an electric eel that wrapped around the victim’s chest, delivering shock after shock directly to the heart until death. If you think sharks a la Jaws are the most terrifying of sea creatures, think again. Electric eel
When thinking about the most dangerous creatures he’s ever encountered, Wade was quick to mention the electric eel. With those adventures, of course, has come a fair share of risk. And also, if you want to find your way around, you can’t really see, so you tend to have things like tentacles.”
Animal Planet
That’s right, eeew. “A lot of fish that live in the sea, they are your normal, nice, pretty, silvery, shiny fish,” Wade said when he stopped by EW for a chat about the final season of River Monsters. I was very worried at the time that it might have damaged my heart.” Thankfully, though, Wade lived to tell the tale, along with many others. “Thick rubber boots and gloves. What people sometimes do is, they’re out in the middle of the river, and the storm comes, so they go into the side of the river and a tree falls on top of them.”
4. Extreme weather
When wading waste deep in a forest river, sometimes the most dangerous element can come from above, not below. “A big one can deliver about 500 volts,” he said, noting that a victim could even drown in shallow water since the shock can paralyze a person and knock her over — face down in the water. Amazingly, the victim never lost consciousness, but when Wade asked if he had a headache, on a scale of 1 to 10, the answer was “definitely a 10. Show Full Article “If someone comes to help you, they’re gonna get zapped as well.”
To handle the eels for River Monsters, Wade took all the necessary precautions, but the risk was still very, very real. “They tend to have a toxic slime in there, which stings an awful lot,” Wade remembered. “The worst thing that happened when filming River Monsters was the time when our sound recordist was hit by lightning,” Wade recalled. The arapaima is a very large freshwater fish that can weigh up to 400 pounds. 2. “Being out on the water, you’re very exposed,” he said. The massive arapaima
Perhaps Wade’s closest brush with death also occurred in the Amazon, when he was trying to net an arapaima in a pond. I never had anything like this before.”
Weather has always been a major wild card for Wade and his crew. Over the years, Wade has caught (and subsequently released) some of the slimiest and largest animals to come out of the murky depths, always maintaining a scientific fascination throughout (in addition to a fisherman, Wade is a biologist). “In the Amazon, one cause of death that’s not uncommon is getting caught out in a storm. The stabbing catfish
While not exactly a brush with death, Wade recalled the “extremely painful” experience of being stabbed by a small catfish in the back of his hand in Argentina. The ninth and final   season of River Monsters premieres   this Sunday, April 23, at 9 p.m. In the long-running Animal Planet series, Wade travels the globe, following stories and folklore that come out of the nooks and crannies of far-flung places like central India, the Amazon, and Greenland, to discover aquatic beasts that rarely — if ever — have seen the light of day. “It bled quite a lot at the time.” The obvious lesson here: Don’t base a creature’s risk factor only on its size. “He hit me in the sternum. I could still feel that after six weeks. 5. For eight seasons, “extreme angler” (read: daring fisherman) Jeremy Wade has been coming face-to-gills with some of the world’s ugliest, scaliest, and sometimes most dangerous creatures on River Monsters. “We got the kind of people who work on power lines,” he said. “I don’t know if it was making a last bid for freedom or if it actually was aiming for me,” Wade remembered. Apparently, the unlucky sound guy (who wasn’t even holding a boom at the time) was wearing very thick rubber-soled boots, and an entire patch of skin on his legs just above had all the hair singed off. If there’s zero visibility, there’s not much point being pretty because no one can see you. “A lot of the things I deal with are pretty scary. Fear makes you pay attention — it’s about absolute concentration.”
Attention and concentration notwithstanding, here is a collection of some of Wade’s most death-defying moments over the years:

Freeform renews ‘Shadowhunters’ for season 3

The cast of the Freeform series announced the season 3 renewal — 20 more episodes — via Facebook Live on Friday. It’s a good day to be a Shadowhunters fan. According to the network, the rift between the two sides grows wider as “friends and lovers are put in the middle of the dangerous divide.” Also, look out for a new Shadowhunter named Sebastian (Game of Thrones‘ Will Tudor) to join the story. Watch the cast make the announcement — and reveal a bit more about what’s to come in the series — below:

Show Full Article The fantasy drama series — based on the paranormal romance novels, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare — follows Clary Fray   (Katherine McNamara) as she learns she’s a Shadowhunter (a human with angelic blood who protects others from demons), joins up with other gifted humans, and learns about her previously undiscovered powers. The show is headed into the second half of its sophomore season on June 5 where we’ll find out what happened after the winter finale’s epic NYC showdown between the Shadowhunters and the Downworlders that left both groups reeling.

Ressler’s vendetta against Laurel Hitchin will come back in a big way soon. “There are fundamental issues and problems in that relationship, and the tension that’s been building in that relationship — it will come to a head in the finale.” As for whether or not that will forward things between Will and Natalie, “there’s hope and there’s possibility,” Schneider teases. Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. — Marcus

The finale is going to bring the show full circle to what we saw in the pilot — and more! “They leave that ish lingering,” Darby Stanchfield says. Heldman and Shirley Li. And they’re not the only ones who find themselves in big trouble during the return hour. She is in a true gray area with everyone at the White House and OPA.”
Anything Arrow? This week in TV: Getting more and more excited about Once Upon a Time‘s musical wedding episode! Obviously, it’s not as easy as that seems, but it’s going to be an interesting little fun episode for fans who’ve been loyal since season 1.”
Scoop on the NCIS finale? I saw Patti Murin is headed to Broadway to play Anna in Frozen. Any Blacklist scoop on the rest of the Post Office? “There’s more of that in the stretch from [episodes] 11-13; you just get deeper and deeper into the swamp of secrets.”
Will Caleb interact with anyone else on Quantico? — Tina
Not even close. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com. That’s a wrap on this week’s Spoiler Room. “Tiger Lily has played a key role in what’s going to be happening between the Black Fairy and all of our characters, especially Emma,” EP Adam Horowitz says. I wake up with night sweats wondering what’s going to happen when Huck finds out. — Barbara
As I revealed in my exclusive first look, Jane and Weller go through a lie detector test that will force them to confront their feelings for one another, but it will also lead to the duo making some questionable choices. One thing I can tell you is after this moment of forgiveness where Olivia puts her hand on Abby’s and there’s finally a moment of connection, that’s not the end-all, be-all; it’s not resolved, it’s incredibly messy for Abby. “‘The finale is a big action episode,” EP George Schenck says. “The story that we realize is not finished, and one that is haunting him is the death of Reven Wright, and his ongoing feud with Laurel Hitchin, who is obviously a part of this international cabal. — Haley
Now that May has helped give Daisy her powers in the Framework, the duo will be forced to team up to take Hydra down — but whether they trust each other is another question. “That little bit of help she gave is going to be really important.” Plus: Someone will make a big sacrifice during Sunday’s episode in a bid to take down the Black Fairy. Is that weird? Show Full Article Even though Huck survived his ordeal, everyone at OPA is still very upset. Be sure to email your questions to spoilerroom@ew.com or tweet them to @NatalieAbrams. “It’s so easy to write for Graham… Everyone was happy to see him.” And if that’s not enough reassurance, here’s one more tidbit: You’ll see Caleb sing in Monday night’s episode — and not just sing because he feels like singing. It’s a really fun May-Skye reunion, save-the-day episode, which was really fun for us to shoot because we haven’t done that in a while. What does that mean for her character — and Nina’s relationship with Will — on Chicago Med? “There are still some huge ones, huge secrets to come in the last two or three [episodes]; kind of game-changing secrets, I would say,” EP Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says. “It feels kind of old-school because the aesthetic is definitely something of the first season because of the hair, but we have May finally realizing that there’s something bigger than the Framework and having that gut intuition. Two words: Ruh-roh. “I don’t even know the answer to that yet and I’m sweating it. — Andrew
Don’t worry: Caleb (Graham Rogers) will meet the rest of the task force — and he’ll have interactions with everyone from season 1. Any new scoop on Blindspot? So is Abby now in the clear on Scandal? So Ressler has an itch that really needs to be scratched, and he’s going to find himself in a very uncomfortable place.”
I’m totally more into the parents’ storyline on Riverdale. “Ressler has something that’s been lingering over him for the past year,” EP Jon Bokenkamp says. Adds EP Frank Cardea: “And you will not want to miss the last five minutes.”
Anything you can tease about the Final Battle on Once Upon a Time? “[Murin] has been a great addition to the cast, but she is not going to be available in the same way and we thought it was time to progress [Nina and Will’s] relationship,” EP Andrew Schneider says. — Cressa
Not at all, and you’ll be delighted to hear that we’ll be learning many more secrets about their past in the coming episodes. Here’s what EP Wendy Mericle tells me: “We’ve managed to hopefully stick the landing on it in a cool way that allows us to see both some of the moments right before we first met Oliver in the pilot, where he launched that flaming arrow and it lit up that signal fire, and also maybe a little bit after as well, some of the more emotional moments that we never got to see in the pilot.”
Will Team S.H.I.E.L.D. — Maria
While it’s great news for the actress, it’s probably not so much for the couple. The tune will play a part in the task force’s new plan to take down the collaborators Sebastian named. “We really see May and Daisy working together again,” Chloe Bennet previews. Additional reporting by Breanne L.

‘Bill Nye Saves the World’ and explains why algebra is useful after all

On the panel of each show, we have three authorities on each subject, so they have to be compelling and convincing. It’s an exercise in thinking. Why go into issues like climate change and vaccinations? I’m not joking you. Over the course of 13 episodes, Netflix’s   Bill Nye Saves the World sees the popular mechanical engineer dedicate a half-hour to subjects deemed particularly controversial in today’s world, be it climate change, video game addiction, and anti-vaxxers. It’s not in anybody’s best interest. Also Karlie Kloss. You don’t want machines that will kill you. The Science Guy show, made 22 years ago, is being viewed by more kids than it ever has been. Each show does have a point of view. BILL NYE: Artificial intelligence has come a long way. You’ve crystallized my thoughts. The other thing is if you want to get into science, really, make sure you learn algebra. In other words, we want everybody to learn to evaluate whether or not somebody knows what he or she is talking about. In the first of the three in the series, maybe we’ll get renewed for dozens, the characters work on clean water, the second they work on renewable reliable electricity, and in the third, they’re going to work on using space assets to provide Internet access to remote people in the Amazon. It’s crazy. What about your correspondents? There’s three things we want for everybody in the world: clean water, renewably produced reliable electricity, and access to the Internet — or whatever the future of electronic information is called. The business that we’re in is to get people to look at issues in society from a scientific point of view. In his world, Derek Muller is a famous guy on his Veritasium website. These are young people in their early 20s who are professional elementary, middle, and high school teachers. We found them. That is to say, it’s not obvious that algebra causes you to pursue a career in a technical field. Everybody thinks that’s cool, and a lot of people think it’s scary and apocalyptic. But Bill Nye Saves the World is intended for people who want to think more deeply about subjects that don’t have a clear-cut yes or no. I’ve met many teachers who grew up watching The Science Guy show who are now using it in their classes. People are still watching it in elementary school. We did a show in 1997 about computers, but now, we have artificial intelligence where computers are able to learn, and systems that learn, and as far as anybody can assess and can make decisions in a way a sentient being can. But before those arrive, none other than   the Science Guy himself, Bill Nye, has a new mission: saving the world. Thanks to Netflix, Ms. Eddy Chen/Netflix
Was there guest in particular who you were excited to have on the show? On the show, you’re delving into a lot of topics that are controversial. Because he tends to explore the science of food on   his show. Algebra is probably the single most reliable indicator of whether or not a person pursues a career in science. Everywhere you look, it would seem like another facet of ’90s educational programming is making a comeback. Like being an anti-vaxxer, nowadays, is bad. What are some of the things you have to consider when trying to inform people about science in order to save the world? Watch my show! Our claim, in nerd fashion, is that a reasonable and good thing to do is to look at the world from a scientific standpoint. It’s all part of one giant master plan. It’s not clear whether or not it’s cause and effect. But it is generally believed that being able to think abstractly about numbers enables you to think abstractly about all sorts of things. That’s the point. Where do you fall on that? So people are still watching the old show. Frizzle will soon be revving   The Magic School Bus   into gear, while   Carmen Sandiego   is set to remain elusive as ever. We always say in science education especially, you want to show, then tell. How did you go about finding them? I was in Britain about a month ago, and all the school kids in Britain are watching it. Your last show got a lot of kids into science and excited about it. You want to show it. Nazeem Hussain is just a funny guy, and Joanna Hausman I think is brilliant. Any TV show has to be entertaining first. Emily Calandrelli has her own Fox kids show. Tell me about your book, Jack and the Geniuses. Whatever else you do is good, but to make it entertaining you can’t beat being funny — or being funny on purpose. What advice would you have for people now, who are excited about science and want to get into the field? You want machines that save you time, effort, and energy. We went looking for people who had experience on camera, who were funny nerdy, and are interested in science. Exactly. I’m very proud of it. The quality of evidence for most of us depends on stories, and the stories have to be told by authorities, people whom we believe to be authorities. She’s the real deal. Pretending that climate change isn’t happening for a short-term benefit for your family is wrong. She’s great. What do you think you have to consider when trying to do that for today’s generation of kids? ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: There have been a lot of scientific developments since you last had a show in 1998. You don’t want it to be just telling, and telling, take my word for it. The answer is clearly without question: It depends. That was really fun. That’s my advice. The show is called Bill Nye Saves the World. With the show hitting Netflix today, EW caught up with Nye to discuss his new show, why albegra is important, and of course, just how we can save the world. Show Full Article Bill Nye Saves the World is currently available for streaming on Netflix. This will enable even rural communities to get educational resources to girls and women which will ultimately slow the rate of growth of human population to provide more resources for everyone. Was there anything you were particularly excited to tackle for an audience? What we want is for the viewers to develop the critical thinking skills to evaluate the evidence presented by the person who would be the authority. Binge! You know she made her reputation as a terrific model, and she did a fine job. It was cool to meet Alton Brown. How do you think comedy can help make science more accessible? That’s so cool. You can also preorder   Jack and the Geniuses   here. It still freaks me out a little.

Charlie Hunnam did a Guy Ritchie impression for his King Arthur

“It was challenging to begin with because there was an uncertainty about the tone,” says Charlie Hunnam, whose hero battles Jude Law’s warlord. “Guy’s [initial] intention was to make something that was outside of his wheelhouse, and make a more classic, straightforward, and somewhat somber film — which is obviously not what we ended up with.”
What they ended up with is full-blast swords and sorcery told with a Cockney accent. We were just doing our best Guy Ritchie impersonations.”

Having already updated Sherlock Holmes into a Robert Downey Jr. But according to the director, the jobs are only similar in that they’re just like any other movie.

Thriller ‘The Endless’ has hilarious new Tribeca promo

Rather more jocular? The Endless is the new, screening-at-Tribeca film from Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson — directors of the Lovecraftian love story, Spring — and it looks to be a serious proposition in more ways than one.

Michael Moore: ‘White guys’ won’t lead revolution against Trump

“I think there have been one or two exceptions in 30 years. Bush, shaming the former commander-in-chief in an incendiary speech that seemingly divided not only the crowd of Hollywood elite inside the Kodak Theatre, but the millions of Americans watching at home. “They just accept that this is what we have now and we have to live with it, and you see where it begins, and you can’t keep from going in there with a stick and beating it and pointing at it and saying, ‘Ok, everybody look at this.’”

Show Full Article “We defunded our schools… the arts have been canceled, civics class is gone in a third to half of our schools now… a certain political party took over in 1980. It’s the American equation: Dumb down the population and make them ignorant and stupid. Pennebaker also joined Moore onstage at the New York event for an hour-long discussion, which saw Moore reflecting on the process of making his 2002 masterpiece, which he revealed was slapped with an R-rating from the MPAA for including actual footage from the Columbine shooting. “There will more than likely be some kind of terrorist attack in this country, and I fear he will use that to such an awful extent, and we have to fight that when it happens and not be afraid to fight it… Women and young people will lead this revolution. Why don’t women shoot other human beings?”
The question of gender’s role in violent crimes doesn’t punctuate the film’s pointed commentary, but getting to the bottom of why America has one of the highest numbers of firearm assaults per year is an essential stroke in the bigger picture Bowling for Columbine paints. Hate leads to violence, [and in this case you can] use your ballot as an act of violence against people you hate.”

#BowlingforColumbine #MichaelMoore #TFF #Tribeca #TribecaFilmFestival
A post shared by Joey Nolfi (@joeynolfi) on Apr 20, 2017 at 7:34pm PDT

Filmmaker D.A. Generally, men commit most of the gun murders – adult men and teenage boys. Trump knew that part of the equation very well. “The one thing I left out in the film and didn’t really think of it until I was at the premiere… is girls don’t do this. The film went on to win major awards around the world and is now considered one of the best documentaries of the modern era. Not white guys.”

Pennebaker further championed Moore’s largely singular ability to fix a camera on issues that matter when his perspective is needed the most. “The problem you have is that you see where wrong begins and most people don’t bother to look,” the veteran documentarian told Moore, who became visibly bashful as the 91-year-old praised his craft. Ignorance leads to fear, right?” he said, noting the country’s collective ambivalence toward fighting for change as the gun violence epidemic spreads (392 died and 1,502 were   injured in mass shootings across 2016 alone). Now, some 15 years filled with numerous mass shootings, scores of American lives lost, and one Sandy Hook tragedy later, it’s clear Bowling For Columbine was an apt, cautionary account of a society split in crisis – an ill omen that things were about to get much worse. “We could release this movie again this Friday and it would be every bit as relevant,“ Moore told a packed house at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival’s retrospective screening of Bowling for Columbine   on Thursday night — the 18th anniversary of the April 20, 1999 Columbine High School massacre — calling his time-tested nonfiction feature a documentary that exists “in a fictitious world” with artifice driven by people like President Donald Trump. “I think that we’ve gone through is 40 years of a country being dumbed down,” the 62-year-old said of the Republican Party’s influence on America’s sustained obsession with the second amendment. But over a decade   after its release, Moore admitted he’s still recutting and retooling the original version in his head, and regrettably   omitted an   important part of the school shooting discussion. It’s all boys,” Moore told the audience. “Fear leads to hate. When Michael Moore stood on the Oscars stage in 2003, he accepted the Academy Award for best documentary on behalf of his Bowling for Columbine – a powerful examination of gun-related violence in the United States – with a critique of George W. Moore suggested it stems from the government’s reliance on war tactics to advance its own agenda – something he said isn’t improving at the dawn of the Trump administration. I think that’s really where it began.”
“I think the equation is simple. “Politicians know how to manipulate [fear]. We’re hours, months, weeks away from our own Reichstag fire, and when that happens I really encourage people not to get on board the fear train, the terrorist train, the war train – whatever Trump will do,” he implored.
