Amazon’s The Boys Returns in September
— The Boys (@TheBoysTV) June 26, 2020
During The Boys reunion earlier today, it was revealed the second season is set to premiere its first three episodes worldwide on Amazon Prime Video on September 4.
The remaining five episodes will air every Friday through October 9.
In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
Series co-creator Eric Kripke refers to the second season as “crazier, stranger, more intense, more emotional. In fact, it’s too much, so the Surgeon General has insisted we air the first three episodes on September 4, then air the remaining five episodes weekly after that. We wanted to give you time to freak out, digest, discuss, come down from the high before we give you another dose.”
Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson and star Margot Robbie are reuniting for a new Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Though plot details are under wraps, the film is not meant to be a spinoff of the Jack Sparrow-led franchise but rather a new original story with new characters under the same titular moniker inspired by the Disneyland ride of the same name.
The film from the Birds of Prey team is also set to be a different project from the long-in-development sixth film of the Sparrow-focused franchise, which has seen a number of directors and writers come and go, currently seeing Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and franchise co-creator Ted Elliott penning the current draft.
Jerry Bruckheimer, who has been attached to the franchise since 2003 will produce.
Campbell Scott will portray Lewis Dodgson, a character whom Jurassic Park novels fans will remember as the head of research at Biosyn, a rival of InGen. In both Michael Crichton’s books, Dodgson was one of the main villains. Dodgson got a promotion before the events of Dominion, and he is now the CEO of Biosyn Genetics.
Actor Cameron Thor portrayed the character in Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster, but the movie reduced him to a cameo, bribing Wayne Knight’s Dennis Nedry to steal the fertilized dinosaur embryos.
Scott will join original Jurassic Park stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum as they reprise their roles as Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Alan Grant, and Dr. Ian Malcolm, respectively. And perhaps, all these returns are connected somehow. Jurassic World: Dominion production is expected to reprise at Pinewood Studios in early July.
Jurassic World: Dominion opens in theaters on June 11, 2021.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the film’s 10th anniversary, Wright revealed that though a live-action sequel is definitely not going to happen, he and the source material’s creator Bryan Lee O’Malley have been cooking up something else.
“There’s some plans — and there’s nothing official yet — but there are some plans to revisit the material in an animation way,” Wright said. “We’ve been talking with Bryan and with Jared for a while [about]: What if we did something with the books in anime form? It’s being discussed as we speak.”
Scott Pilgrim is set to return to theaters to celebrate its anniversary, which was originally set to hit theaters in August, however, the re-release is postponed indefinitely due to the global pandemic.
