News You May Have Missed…

Congratulations to the man we will always know as Eric Northman, Alexander Skarsgard. He won the SAG for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series for his work in Big Little Lies. A well deserved win! And he brought up his True Blood role in his acceptance speech, which was hilarious!

Congratulations are also in order for Game of Thrones for winning a SAG for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series.

Congratulations are in order to The Tick, which was given a second season.

Denis Villeneuve, who directed Arrival and Blade Runner, has signed on to do Dune. I loved both Arrival and Blade Runner, but Dune is such a behemoth to take on. Writing an adaptation of this book and making it hit all the key moments, but not making you fall asleep due to long pauses…will be a huge undertaking. Good Luck!

Netflix’s Castlevania anime will be back with 8 new episodes in the summer! I liked this anime because it was short and the story was really engaging and fast-paced. I hope that continues in the second season.

We lost a lot of key characters during the past few months in the DC TV universe. Kid Flash left Center City to find his place in the world and both Victor Garber and Franz Drameh left Legends of Tomorrow. But, we learned that Keiynan Lonsdale, aka Kid Flash, has joined the Legends team as a series regular. EW

Seamus Dever, Castle, will be in Titans that will air on the DC streaming service. TVLine

One last thing…

Lucasfilm released a synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story….

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”

For some reason, this movie worries me. A lot has happened behind the scenes. Honestly, who they picked for Solo was not who I would have picked. The poor actor had to get an acting coach and the whole movie had to get a new director and basically totally re-shot. That just screams….prepare for the worst.

What do you think?
