According to Yahoo! News David Ayer, director of the upcoming 'Suicide Squad" movie, which is currently filming in Toronto and is due for release on 8/5/16, has a therapist on standby for the cast. David Ayer is known for realism and wants the movie to be very dark.
Adam Beach, who stars as Slipknot, says "So if your character is tormented, he wants you to torment yourself. He wants the real thing [...] We kind of have like a therapist on board if you fall off the wagon and really are villainous. There's a friend of [Ayer's] that's very unique in making sure we have our ground." Beach also stated that there are "thin lines" to the dark side and that the director may want the movie to be exceptional, but "he wants to make sure we finish a movie and don't disappear somewhere and then don't show up for work."

Harry Potter is about to tread the boards on the West End! That's right, Potter fans - our favourite wizard universe is coming back! J.K. Rowling tweeted the awesome news, saying the new story will open at the Palace Theatre next year. Titled "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", the author promises a new and untold part of Harry Potter's history. Sadly, we don't have more details other than it isn't a prequel and that Rowling adapted the story for the stage. Regardless, who's game to grab the nearest portkey and go see the opening?
While they won't look quite as baby-faced as in this pic (wow they were really that young when they started The X-Files!), Mulder and Scully are back and Entertainment Weekly got some cool new info from being on set for next year's limited run six episode X-Files series. Creator Chris Carter promises a dark series with political allegory but also monster-of-the week episodes like the awesomely named "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Man" Totally watching that one! Who are we kidding? We're watching the whole series and can't wait! Especially Tonya whose love for The X-Files is probably only second to her love for Joss Whedon!
The limited run X-Files series launches January 24, 2016 on FOX. Check out all the details from the Entertainment Weekly article and let us know what you think! Are you excited for the new X-Files? Tell us in the Comments below!
Marvel and Sony have announced that they have cast the latest incarnation of Spider-Man! Lucky Brit Tom Holland is next up to don Spidey's suit and go swinging from tall buildings. At just 19, he's definitely a younger take on the hero than what we're used to. What do you think, SGU family? Yes or no? Let us know in the comments!
First off, huge props for the coolest movie name ever! Second, what the heck is Dragon Blade? Well it's a crazy, amazing-looking historical epic battle movie starring Jackie Chan! What else do you really need to know? Okay, well apparently a corrupt Roman leader (Adrien Brody) wants to capture the Silk Road and it's up to Jackie Chan's character and his awesome warriors to stop him. Lucikly, they have help from a group of defected Roman solider led by John Cusack. Yup, you read that right: John Cusack.
I'll see any movie with Jackie Chan in it and the battle scenes look awesome! Brody looks particularly badass as the villain. John Cusack, um, looks like John Cusack in every modern movie he's been in. It's pretty ridiculous he's in this movie, but I still can't wait to see it! What do you guys think? Let us know in the Comments! - Jeff
This may or may not be a first but Paramount has invited uber-fan (I'd say a Trekker, not a Trekkie - yes, there's a difference) Michael Gummelt to pitch a new Star Trek series to them. His Star Trek Uncharted series would introduce a whole new crew, technology, and Enterprise. He's even outlined his dream cast, with one of those cast members supporting his vision. You can take a look at his entire concept on his website. All we can say is break a leg, Michael! You're boldly going where few have gone before!
Hey gang! Jeff here. I just finished watching the first season of sense8, Neflix's new sci-fi series about eight people who share a telepathic link with one another, and loved it so much I needed to share how awesome and it is and why you should be watching!
1. It's Smart Character-Driven Science-Fiction
We need original sci-fi concepts and this totally delivers. The story is weaved so intricately and wonderfully over the twelve episodes that you can't help but feel elated at the end. And this is a show all about the characters. Eight completely different characters who all find each other somehow connected. It's no easy task to weave together that many story arcs together but sense8 does it in such a way you care about every single one of them. So instead of watching the next movie reboot or the next police or courtroom drama clone, check out this original sci-fi series!
2. Creator Cred
With The Wachowskis (The Matrix) and J. Michael Stracyznski (Babylon 5) at the helm, sense8 has amazing sci-fi cred in its creators. Anytime I see the Wachowskis name on something, I want to watch it. And while they haven't had a lot of commercial success of late, they're visionary creators and it's great to see then at the top of their game here teaming with Stracynski.
3. A Fantastic and Diverse Cast
You probably haven't heard of any of the actors in sense8. But hopefully you'll make a not of them as the cast delivers across the board. The series is filled with amazingly believable and touching performances. It's also probably the most diverse series on TV or online right now. The characters come from all over the world and the show does a tremendous job of representing different races, cultures, and LGBQT characters.
4. You Won't Have to Watch Porn
Okay so that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but sense8 isn't shy about showing very graphic, real sex scenes. What I do like is they're shot very tastefully and artistically and not for gratuitous reasons. So put that porn away and watch a series with an actual story instead!
5. It May Be the Best Show Out There Right Now
It's rare to find a show that fires on all cylinders in its first season, but sense8 does just that. Even shows I totally love, there's usually some things I don't like about them. But I'm hard pressed to find anything like that in sense8. Some may say it's a bit of a slow-build in the beginning but I think you'll find that all pays off by the season finale. And that finale is so well done and will leave you with an amazing feeling. There are plenty of great series online and on TV right now, but this may be the best of them all. So please watch it, because we need to support original sci-fi like this. And I really, really want a Season 2!
