Are you ready? (I know I’m not). I finally bit the bullet and created an official YouTube channel. Please like, subscribe and comment (but be nice!) I hope that this space will allow me to showcase some of the other topics that I’m interested in and some of the random videos that I capture. Check it out below:
HBO invited me* to participate in a panel discussion at the Paley Center for Media about their new show Westworld, which debuted on their channel on October 2. (Spoiler alert for the first Episode!) Westworld is executive produced by J.J. Abrams and written and produced by husband and wife team Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. It’s based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 Yul Brynner film of the same name and is a “false-reality drama”about a high-end theme park filled with life-like AI that basically are programmed to let the guests do whatever they want to them. Each AI is programmed within a certain storyline that loops and intersects with other storylines. When a storyline reaches it’s final stage, then the AI is “wiped” and they are slotted back into another story. But things start to get dangerous when some of the AI’s aren’t fully wiped and are retaining “memories” of previous storylines and what they’ve been through. (Since this is HBO, they go through some ish). Basically, Westworld is what would happen if BioWare went to Jurassic Park, rebuilt it as a live-action, fully immersible, real-time Red Dead Redemption RPG theme park and instead of dinosaurs coming after you, a random AI side-character breaks its protocols, becomes sentient and tries to kill you.
Warner Bros Dropped a New Suicide Squad Trailer at #SDCC exclusively for Hall H but it’s out now on the WB Youtube Channel. Check it out below.
Transformer Combiner Wars takes place in the future after the war between Autobots and Decepticons has ended and all Transformers have returned to Cybertron. Neither Optimus Prime nor Megatron are around anymore and a new hybrid race of machines has emerged. Ones that combine and transform with any Transformers around them. (Gurren Lagann anyone?). Some of what happened to Prime is described in the first person in the following first 3 minute short.
So remember when I told you about that BET shoot for the new X Men Apocalypse movie that I did? Well the spots are now live on BET Networks and they sent me copies to share! Let me know what you think! (If you see them on BET scream at the TV for me will ya? I keep missing it!) Click the links below to view.
If you’ve been following me on twitter and Instagram, then you know I’m really excited about the upcoming series out of Australia and New Zealand called Cleverman. Premiering to critical acclaim at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year, Cleverman, produced by the Australian Broadcasting corporation and distributed in the US by SundanceTV, is a story basically asks, “What if only Indigenous people had superpowers?” It’s a very interesting concept, with shades of the X-Men, District 9, Heroes and even the real life Tuskeegee Experiment. With a reported 80% aboringinal cast and a storyline rooted in indigenous mythology, I am definitely looking forward to this show’s debut.
