Netflix Reveals Trailer For Season Two Of ‘Mindhunter’

Season one of the Netflix Original Series “Mindhunter” immediately drew us in and left us eagerly anticipating any news about season two! Netflix has now released a chilling new trailer for “Mindhunter” season two and we are super excited! The serial killer drama will begin streaming on August 16th! Starring Jonathan Groff as an ambitious FBI agent, the series looks back on the creation of the agency’s Behavioral Science Unit in the late 1970s in order to study the psychology of serial killers. The first season gave us the chilling encounter between Holden and serial killer Ed Kemper, played by Cameron Britton. The first trailer for the second season shows that the character will be back, although he won’t be the main focus of the story this season, which will center on a child murderer who targets mostly black children and terrified Atlanta from 1979 to 1981. The trailer ends with what we are sure will be the climax of the season: an encounter between Holden and serial killer Charles Manson, played by Damon Herriman. Fun note, the actor also …

Seth Rogen Is A Busy Guy

    I once waved to Seth Rogen at San Diego Comic-Con where he was attending a panel for the AMC show Preacher. Rogen is an executive producer on the show and attends Comic-Con on the regular. He never waved back, but hey I tried. Preacher is on its fourth and final season on AMC and airs on Sunday nights. The series finale will air on September 29th. Rogen seems like a likable guy, and usually plays the kind of character you would want to hang out with. In many of his movies, he plays a stoner and I would go as far as to say he’s Canada ‘s answer to Willie Nelson. Rogen might play a stoner on screen, but he is busy in front of and behind the camera. According to IMDB Seth Rogen has 95 acting credits to his name. That’s a lot of work. Rogen is also a producer on the hit Amazon Prime show The Boys. The show revolves around a group of superheroes well that are not that nice and sometimes very evil. Out …

Nerding Out: Quentin Tarantino Shares The Ultimate Playlist Of Music From His Film Catalog

Love or hate Quentin Tarantino as a filmmaker, most all of us can agree that the famed director knows how to put together one heck of an amazing film soundtrack! Credit definitely has to be given to his music director Mary Ramos, as the pair always seem to find the perfect soundscape to capture the essence of many pivotal scenes throughout Tarantino’s extensive body of work. Much of the music has its’ roots in the genre of funk and soul, however, there is also quite a bit of surf rock, country and classical thrown in for good measure as well. Tarantino digs out many lesser heard tracks but also manages to bring about a fresh life to some legendary classics as well. In support of his amazing new film “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”, Tarantino has paired up with Spotify for a takeover of their Film & TV Favorites playlist to compile a 71 song tracklist of some of his personal favorites from his own film soundtracks. The list is pretty incredible and we seriously can’t stop listening. It …

The FX Fearless Forum Activation was a strong highlight of Comic-Con for us, starting with the  “What We Do In The Shadows” experience. We spent a few hours sharing drinks in the vampire house, complete with an open bar in the home, filled with things you’d expect in an old gothic lair, sharing drinks with the vampires from the FX Show, based on the film of the same name. Who doesn’t want to share some time with some vampires who have lived together for hundreds of years? The character actors were in top form, and gave our friend Chicago Pete a new name – ‘Craig the virgin’. Craig will live with his new name forever thanks to these amazing actors! FX also shared a bit of a haunted campground experience with the activation for “American Horror Story: 1984”. We had the best time exploring this themed activation which was absolutely terrifying.

A First Look At Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’

At long last, we have finally gotten our first look at the highly anticipated film “The Irishman” directed by Martin Scorsese which will be hitting select theaters and Netflix this fall! The first showing of the film is set to take place at the New York Film Festival, whose director Kent Jones is a frequent collaborator of Martin Scorsese. From what we hear the special effects used to create this film took an incredible amount of time, as they were used to change the aging of actors Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. Since the story will not be told chronologically (and will, therefore, move back and forth in time), the viewer will be able to see the actors’ faces, sometimes young and sometimes old. The film is adapted from Delaware author Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses and focuses on the eventful life of hitman Frank Sheeran, aka The Irishman. The film is an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler, and …
