We here at io9 were fans of M.R.Carey s apocalyptic novel The Girl With All the Gifts when it came out in 2014, but our review cagily avoided giving too much away about the plot.The UK trailer for Colm McCarthy s film adaptation, however, doesn t hold anything back.Glenn Close plays the mysterious doctor at an isolated British army base, Gemma Arterton plays the kindly teacher who tends to a group of children who are being held there for some reason the reason is probably zombies , and 12-year-old newcomer Sennia Nanua plays the gifted lead character.Carey penned the script from his own novel.There s no release date yet, but The Girl With All the Gifts looks unlike any zombie movie we ve ever seen—and if it s half as good as the book, it ll be a genre standout for sure.
And have we got some treats for you this week: new trailers for stuff we've known about for a while Star Trek Beyond, Morgan, Street Fighter V and brand new arrivals in the form of trailers for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Inferno and more.Yes, the ageless Tom Cruise has returned as Lee Childs literary baddie-puncher Jack Reacher.Inferno is the third such adaptation, as Tom Hanks returning to the role of prominent symbologist Robert Langdon as he traipses around Europe solving puzzles hidden in paintings, while in the company of a woman young enough to be his daughter in this case, Felicity Jones .Ron Howard returns to the director s chair, so it should be a slick ride into silliness and medieval art.Jason Statham is coming – and this time like almost every time, tbh , he s upset.This year's Big Bad takes the iconic ship out of the equation, stranding the crew on an uncharted planet filled with alien warriors that have a serious beef with the Federation.
One of the best zombie movies to come out in years is finally coming to the U.S. later this month, and we want to make sure you don t miss it.It s called The Girl With All The Gifts, and it s got a new trailer.Directed by Colm McCarthy and starring Paddy Considine, Glenn Close, and Gemma Arterton, the UK production opened there in September and bombed.What we do know is that the movie is absolutely fantastic.But, because of its lack of success overseas, it s getting dumped in the U.S.So if you have DirectTV, it ll be available on January 26.
Netflix's stable of content looks to be getting better.Fans should be excited to check out the film when it arrives later this month.On Monday, Netflix blessed its hordes of viewers with the first trailer for its upcoming summer spectacular, What Happened to Monday?We already knew that Swedish actress Noomi Rapace would be playing a family of seven identical sisters, but we didn’t know much about the roles for Hollywood veterans Glenn Close and Willem Dafoe.The trailer opens with Close — playing some sort of evil, dictatorial despot, it seems — talking about the “Child Allocation Bureau,” which appears to be some sort of government agency built to combat overpopulation via sinister methods.Dafoe, meanwhile, looks like he’s the father (or guardian) of the seven sisters, whom he keeps secret by naming them after days of the week and having them each impersonate the same woman on their assigned day.
Netflix has a new original sci-fi film called What Happened to Monday available to stream on Friday, starring Noomi Rapace playing seven different characters.The movie’s fictional world has a global law against having more than one child, to stem overpopulation, but the father of Noomi’s characters goes against the grain when he has identical septuplets.A sci-fi movie where one female lead plays a whole bunch of identical characters?Sounds like a film version of cult favorite series ‘Orphan Black.’ And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.Plus, it also stars Willem Dafoe and Glenn Close in addition to Rapace.Based on the clip above, this will be a more visceral and brutal action sci-fi story than ‘Orphan Black’ could be with its more general TV audience.
Different streaming services do things differently, like how Netflix releases all of its original original shows in one go.Amazon has its own thing, in that it lets the viewers decide which pilots get ordered to series.It uses viewer feedback to help it make its decisions, rather than simply trying to predict what people want - which is how most TV studios do it.To do that Amazon has something called a 'pilot season', where all the pilots are released to the public.The next one is arriving quite soon too, launching on 10th November.There are only three pilots this time around, with Sea Oak about a deceased aunt (Glenn Close) that returns as a zombie "compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction" to get the life she never had.
Welcome to TechRadar's best Netflix sci-fi movies list, which features a fantastic array of science fiction movies that you can stream right now.The result is a rather muted, strange movie that never goes where you expect it to.Date: 2018 | Director: Alex Garland | Stars: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson | Rating: 15/R | Runtime: 115 minThis is exactly the sort of movie that Netflix should be making.Date: 2017 | Director: Tommy Wirkola | Stars: Noomi Rapace, Glenn Close, Willem Dafoe | Rating: 15/TV-MA | Runtime: 123 minGreat mix of sci-fi and action
Netflix flexed its awards muscles on Sunday in the face of heavy competition to win five Golden Globes across TV and film categories.The streaming company, which has long positioned itself as an industry disrupter, entered the night behind its rivals HBO and Amazon in TV nominations.But thanks to surprise wins for its new comedy, "The Kominsky Method," and its hit British series, "Bodyguard," Netflix left the Globes ahead.Netflix has built an impressive catalog of British shows by acquiring exclusive rights to stream the shows outside of the UK.The strategy has benefited both Netflix and British TV networks, as the shows are introduced to a wider audience and can reel in subscribers."The End of the F------ World" and "The Last Kingdom" are two other British shows that have become hits thanks to Netflix.
Never mind Glenn Close’s surprise win or Timothée Chalamet’s sequinned harness, the real star of the Golden Globes was Kelleth Cuthbert, who went viral after photobombing basically everyone on the red carpet.Kelleth was employed for the evening by Fiji Water and dutifully stood holding a tray of the stuff as the stars made their way into Sunday night’s event.Little did she know, though, snaps of her behind the famous faces were causing plenty of amusement online.Stefanie Keenan via Getty ImagesGetting the most out of her 15 minutes of fame (no judgement, we’d do the same), Kelleth has now spoken to People magazine about the evening.Insisting that she wasn’t seeking out the cameras, the model said: “There’s tons of photographers everywhere.

This week we were shocked to hear the tale (or should we say tail) of Lilly the cat who disappeared for a decade.But it turns out Lilly was living the high life down the road – just 400 yards away – with a man who believed she was a stray cat.“I was crying my eyes out when I saw her again, I just gave her a big cuddle,” owner Alex Elliott told SWNS.Anyway, onwards and upwards – here are five cute animals to end the week.Cat Won’t Stop Jumping Over The FloorLeapfrog the black cat is a little jumpy, to say the least.
Geoffrey Owens didn't win any awards at Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, but the actor drew a rousing round of applause nonetheless.Owens, best known for playing Sondra Huxtable's husband Elvin Tibideaux on hit '80s sitcom The Cosby Show, made headlines back in September when a photo of him working at a New Jersey Trader Joe's went viral.The photo brought buzz as some felt Owens was being shamed for working an honest, if unglamorous, job.The resulting attention brought the actor to the attention of various productions and he landed a guest star role on NCIS: New Orleans, among other parts.At the beginning of the SAG Awards, numerous actors in the audience are shown speaking briefly about their careers, then introducing themselves and saying, "I am an actor."Sunday night, Owens earned a lively round of applause when the camera spotlighted him.
Oscars 2019 is just a week away.We still don't know who's going to host, but here's what we do know about the 91st Oscar ceremony.We know who's nominated -- and that Black Panther is up for best picture and might even have a slight chance.We also know how, when and where to watch the show online.This year the Oscars takes place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, Feb. 24.The whole event starts at 8 p.m.
Over the years, we’ve watched many of our favourite film stars, directors, writers and musicians make their way onto the most prestigious stage in Hollywood, to accept Academy Awards.Here are 16 of the Hollywood actors who, surprisingly, still have a space on their mantelpiece…Arguably the new Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy has been nominated for five Academy Awards, most recently in 2013, only to leave empty-handed every year.At the Academy Awards in 2003, Bill Murray had been nominated for the Best Actor award for his part in ‘Lost In Translation’.All signs point to 2019 being the year, though, with her critically-acclaimed performance in 'The Wife' seeing her triumph at the Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards.He might be one of the most celebrated British actors of stage and screen, but apparently that’s not enough for Sir Ian to bag an Oscar.
When it comes to red carpets, they don’t come much bigger than Oscars, and this year’s event was as star-studded as ever.With this year’s nominated actresses including the likes of Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, Emma Stone and Regina King, glamour was pretty much guaranteed, and there were red carpet moments aplenty.It was also great to see first-timers like the cast of Roma – including Best Actress contender Yalitza Aparicio – and our very own Olivia Colman, also recognised for her work in The Favourite, hitting the Oscars red carpet for the very first time.David Fisher/Christopher Polk/Andrew H. Walker/BEI/Rex/ShutterstockAnd while the men of Hollywood are often derided for playing it safe when it comes to their fashion at events like the Academy Awards, we were happy to see a fair few taking fashion risks.Among our faves were Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who glittered his way down the red carpet, Best Director nominee Spike Lee’s homage to Prince.
Roma and The Favourite lead the nominations with 10 each on Sunday, with Rami Malek and Glenn Close looking like likely winners in the best acting categories.Big wins so far: Regina King won for best actress in a supporting role and Black Panther won for best costume design and production design.Also get the best Oscars highlights and reactions at the bottom of this post.You can also follow along with updates from sister sites ET Online and TV Guide.Winner: Regina King -- If Beale Street Could TalkMarina de Tavira -- Roma
Olivia Colman is an Oscar winner, after triumphing in the Best Actress category.Now that’s a sentence which is seriously good to type.The actress has come a long way since playing Sophie in Peep Show but she’s still just as humble and grounded as ever, which was clear when her name was announced during Sunday night’s ceremony.The Best Actress category was one of the most talked about in the run-up to the big night, largely thanks to the fact it seemed to be a two-horse race between Olivia and Glenn Close.Given that the nomination was Glenn’s seventh, many critics assumed she’d finally win and judging from Olivia’s reaction when her name was called, she agreed with them:Struggling to speak through tears on stage, she laughed: “It’s genuinely quite stressful.
Though Roma and The Favourite led the nominations with 10 each on Sunday, it was Green Book that took the best picture gong, with Rami Malek and Olivia Colman winning big in the best-acting categories.Other big wins of the night included Alfonso Cuarón for best director, Spike Lee for best adapted screenplay -- his first non-honorary Oscar win -- Mahershala Ali for best supporting actor, Regina King for best supporting actress and Black Panther for three awards: best costume design, production design and best original score.Winner: Olivia Colman -- The FavouriteGlenn Close -- The WifeLady Gaga -- A Star is BornMelissa McCarthy -- Can You Ever Forgive Me?
