LEGO have officially pulled the curtains back from 21319 Central Perk, which was greenlit in February as a LEGO Ideas set.
The set coincides with the 25th anniversary of Friends, one of the most successful television sitcoms that I think captured a lot of the essence of the mid 90s and early 00s.
The 1,070 piece set is priced at a very respectable US$59.99 / AU$89.99 and has a release date of 1 September.
Based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, comes a new horror anthology series from the mind of The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero.
This collaboration between director George Romero and horror novelist Stephen King is a loving tribute to the E.C. comic books of the 1950s.
Inspired by the horror yarns found in the pages of EC and DC Comics in the 1950s and hosted by a macabre creature known as The Creep, the original “Creepshow” marked King’s screenwriting debut, with Romero directing all five segments. King himself starred in one of them as a bumpkin forever transformed by his encounter with a mysterious meteorite.
Three new stories about the future we should have seen coming. Black Mirror returns June 5th.
“Watchmen” embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own, per HBO. The minute-long teaser shows off Jeremy Irons (who is apparently playing an older version of Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias) and features multiple mysterious groups — all wearing masks — teasing the “end of the world.”
The show, which is based on Alan Moore’s series, will debut sometime this fall. Watch the video above.
The show’s cast includes Irons, Regina King, Jean Smart, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith, and Adelynn Spoon.
Not much is known about HBO’s take on the famed comic series, except that it will be separate from Zack Snyder’s 2009 “Watchmen” film. In May of last year, Lindelof took to Instagram to share his early ideas for his take, explaining that the HBO series won’t be an adaptation or a sequel, but a “remix.”
“We have no desire to ‘adapt’ the twelve issues Mr. Moore and Mr. [Dave] Gibbons created thirty years ago,” wrote Lindelof, in a five-page letter he shared on Instagram. “Those issues are sacred ground and they will not be retread nor recreated nor reproduced nor rebooted. They will, however, be remixed.”
HBO has released a full trailer for their upcoming five-part miniseries called Chernobyl and it will tell the tragic untold true story of the most horrific nuclear meltdown disaster in history. This looks like it’s going to be a great and seriously intense series. This looks like it was an absolute nightmare.
On April 26, 1986, the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, Soviet Union suffered a massive explosion that released radioactive material across Belarus, Russia and Ukraine and as far as Scandinavia and western Europe. Chernobyl dramatizes the story of the 1986 accident, one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history, and the sacrifices made to save Europe from the unimaginable disaster.
Jared Harris portrays Valery Legasov, a leading Soviet nuclear physicist. As part of the response team, he was one of the first to grasp the scope of the unparalleled disaster that occurred. Stellan Skarsgård plays Soviet Deputy Prime Minister Boris Shcherbina, who is assigned by the Kremlin to lead the government commission on Chernobyl in the hours immediately following the accident. Emily Watson portrays Ulana Khomyuk, a Soviet nuclear physicist committed to solving the mystery of what led to the Chernobyl disaster.
Chernobyl will also star Paul Ritter (Lovesick), Jessie Buckley (Beast), Adrian Rawlins (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) , Con O’Neill (Harlots), Sam Troughton (The Ritual), Adam Nagaitis (The Terror), Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk), Ralph Ineson (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), Mark Lewis Johns (Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi), Fares Fares (Westworld), and David Densik (McMafia).
