‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×15: Will You Take My Hand?’ Review

If you’ve watched Star Trek: Discovery and though “this isn’t my Star Trek” it is fair to say that now the first season of the show is done, that should not be the case. While Discovery may be different, there are many themes that are deeply woven into Star Trek lore that has made it into the show. With the finale, we finally get the missing piece, even if it was something nobody probably saw coming.

With Emperor Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) in charge of the Discovery, the crew prepare to take on the Klingon empire. When Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) find the Emperor’s tactics not fitting with those of the Federation though she is pushed to take a surprising course of action.

While it may have been expected that this would be the episode where we got plenty of action, Star Trek: Discovery took the more surprising

Jason Statham Leads His Crew in New Look at Giant Shark Thriller The Meg

Jason Statham Leads His Crew in New Look at Giant Shark Thriller The Meg
When The Meg was announced back in January of 2017, nobody really knew what to think about it. However, as the months went by, a clearer picture of what the movie is going to be started to take shape. We've since learned that Jason Statham is calling the movie a cross between Jurassic Park and Jaws, which sounds pretty intriguing, but also adds quite a bit of extra pressure on the project as well, since he name dropped two of the biggest movies in Hollywood history. We've seen a picture of The Meg in murky water, and now we're getting a look at the crew in this brand-new image.

The new picture from The Meg has Jason Statham front and center, surrounded by the crew and things don't look like they're going very well. The crew includes Page Kennedy (DJ), Li Bingbing (Suyin), Ruby Rose (Jaxx Herd), and Cliff Curtis (James

New Image Lands From Jason Statham Shark Thriller ‘The Meg’

A new image from the upcoming Jason Statham mega-shark thriller The Meg has landed. The film also stars Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, and Li Bingbing, whilst Jon Turteltaub is the man directing the action behind the camera.

Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it – an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean – carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard – he is the one who gets the call.

10 Women Who Could Step Into Steve Carell's Shoes in the Office Reboot

  • BuzzSugar
When news broke that NBC might be reviving beloved sitcom The Office, there was one big question on our minds: would Steve Carell, who led the show's first seven seasons as Dunder Mifflin's regional manager, Michael Scott, be returning? Based on The Hollywood Reporter's sources, the answer appears to be no. The magazine revealed that NBC is reportedly looking for a new star to lead an ensemble cast for the revival, and we think the network should focus its search on women. Many fans of the Us version of The Office - lest we forget, the NBC show was inspired by a UK television series - probably remember workplace pranks like Jim (John Krasinski) encasing Dwight's (Rainn Wilson) stapler in Jell-o. But not all of the show's jokes were so harmless. Michael was, at best, bumbling, and at worst, extremely inappropriate toward his employees. He said things towards his female employees,

A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he

'The Office' Revival on the Way?

  • Yidio
2017-12-19T05:58:09-08:00'The Office' Revival on the Way?

Revival-mania is still going strong at NBC, as the network is reportedly considering a revival of The Office. The sitcom ended in 2013, two seasons after the departure of star Steve Carrell. The revival certainly would not feature Carrell, and it's not clear if any of the original cast would return. Given that the series had a somewhat lackluster conclusion such a short time ago, it's hard to imagine that there would be much fan enthusiasm for a reboot. That, however, may not NBC from doing it anyway.

Via The Hollywood Reporter.

Hot on the success of the return of Will & Grace, NBC is looking to revive another of its beloved comedies: The Office.

Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that the network is looking to bring back the former Steve Carell starrer for another season.

NBC looking to revive The Office without Steve Carell

With show revivals all the rage on television, NBC are looking to repeat the success they’ve had resurrecting Will & Grace, by bringing back the Us version of The Office.

TV Line broke the news that the Dunder-Mifflin would open its doors for another season with a brand new cast under the stewardship of Greg Daniels, who adapted the show from its Slough-based, Ricky Gervais-created counterpart. Sources close to The Hollywood Reporter reveal that Steve Carell’s regional manager, Michael Scott, will not be involved in the relaunch.

The Office ran for nine seasons, with Carell on board for the first seven, only returning for 2013’s finale. It made household names of John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper and Mindy Kaling.

So what do you think? Would you like to see the doors opened once again, but without Pam Beesley behind the reception desk, or

‘The Office’ Is Returning Stateside: NBC To Revive Series With Old & New Characters

NBC is reportedly reviving the American version of The Office. News reaches us today via TV Line that workers will return to Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton, Pa branch, some of them familiar faces, others brand new.

Steve Carell, who played regional manager Michael Scott in seven of the nine series on NBC will not return.

This U.S. adaptation features the Dunder-Mifflin staff, which includes characters based on roles in the British show. There’s Jim, the likable employee who’s a bit of an everyman. Jim has a thing for receptionist-turned-sales-rep Pam — because office romances are always a good idea! There’s also Dwight, the co-worker who is successful but devoid of social skills and common sense.

Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and B. J. Novak were all involved in the original run, but it’s not known if any will return for the forthcoming episodes. The original version of The Office,

Colette Burson on Showing a Different Side of the South in “Permanent”

Permanent”: Magnolia Pictures

Colette Burson co-created and executive produced HBO’s Golden Globe-nominated series “Hung.” She helmed several episodes of the show. Her other directing credits include short “Little Black Boot” and feature “Coming Soon.”

Permanent” hits theaters, On Demand, Amazon Video, and iTunes today, December 15.

W&H: Describe your film for us in your own words.

Cb: The tagline sums it up nicely, “Hairstyles are temporary. Family is forever.” On a deeper level, “Permanent” is a coming-of-age story set in the South in 1982. The whole family is coming of age — the mother, the father, and the daughter. They’re each figuring out who they are, and the metaphor of hair, which is both universal yet personal, influences everyone’s identity, particularly at that moment in time.

It is also the story of being outsiders, which runs through my work from “Hung” and “The Riches” to this film. In

Film Review: ‘Permanent’

Film Review: ‘Permanent’
It’s hard to decide which era “Permanent” is most nostalgic for: 1982, when writer-director Colette Burson’s semiautobiographical coming-of-ager is set, or the turn of the millennium, when movies like “Welcome to the Dollhouse” and “Ghost World” set the template for the kind of twee, adolescent-angst stories that reached their apotheosis a few years later with Fox Searchlight releases “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Little Miss Sunshine.” In either case, the movie does neither time period any real favors, being a funny-ish (but never outright funny) portrait of a high school girl whose biggest concern is her hair.

As such, the title “Permanent” refers to the chemical process (or “perm,” as the mainstream called it) made enviable by the likes of Meg Ryan, Stevie Nicks and Dolly Parton back when big hair and poodle-like ringlets were all the rage. It also describes the kind of damage that high school renders on teenagers everywhere, who carry the
