You know what that means: more insane antics to entertain us.Although the wait between Season 4, which premiered in 2013, and the upcoming one is better than the seven-year absence fans had to deal with after the show was canceled by Fox in 2006, we’re more than ready to reunite with the Bluths.”Arrested Development” Season 5 is set to premiere on Netflix in 2018.[via: Jason Bateman/Twitter] The Bluths move back in on the 8th. 8.Here comes trouble.

Posted July 31, 2017 by Kelly WooThe ’90s really are back!MTV is reviving “TRL” aka “Total Request Live,” a show that featured the day’s top music videos as voted on by fans over the phone or online. And the new “TRL” will create content for other platforms, like Instagram and Snapchat. Network president Chris McCarthy told The New York Times that “TRL” would return in October in a massive new studio again overlooking Times Square.MTV has experienced falling ratings in the last few years. The original series ran from 1998-2008 and was hosted by Carson Daly. Daly will not return as host; instead, five relatively unknown co-hosts, including rapper/comedian DC Young Fly, will share duties. The network has reinvented itself several times since the heady days of “TRL.” It brought in scripted programming, like “Teen Wolf.” Now, it’s refocusing on music content and reality fare.The new show will run an hour a day to start, though it may expand to two or three hours. Musical acts like Britney Spears, ‘NSYNC, and the Backstreet Boys often appeared on the show, which overlooked Times Square in New York City.Apparently, MTV is looking to reinvent itself by returning to its roots.

[Laughs] You’re going to quote me on that! We’ve spent a lot of time setting these characters up and now we’re going to bash them against each other and see what happens.But one of the things that really keeps “The Walking Dead” going is that every season feels like a different show and as we start to show more promotional material and you guys get to see episodes, you’ll see this is another continuation of that. It’s something that will be addressed.On keeping the audience engaged going forward:I think it’s been all about an expanding scale for the last two season, and it’s really hit its pinnacle this season. We’ve got all these different factions, all these different locations — we’ve got the Hilltop, we have the Sanctuary — and I think getting all these people together and kind of continuing to expand the scale in a cool way, but really using all these pieces to their fullest. This is a very fresh take on the world of “The Walking Dead” and we’re going to be breaking a lot of new ground this season.On the storytelling time jump hinted at in the recent Comic-Con trailer:That is an intriguing tidbit that we did throw out there on purpose, and we’re hoping that people continue to question how that fits into the storyline and what it is. Comic book fans know where a scene that kind of looked like that would fall, but it also doesn’t seem like we would be getting to that just yet if you were a comic book fan, so there is a mystery to that. You’ll just have to see.Don’t quote me on this, but I’m pretty sure you’ll learn in the first episode what that image means. So, in Season 8, we’re trying to do a more fast-paced season, a more action packed season, really focusing on momentum and we feel like over the first seven seasons we kind of set all of the characters into place and now it’s kind of time to break them, to a certain extent.On the surprising similarities between Rick and Negan:We used to talk about how the Governor and Rick are two sides of the same coin, and I think Negan is probably a better illustration of that just because, or as Rick has advanced, Negan has advanced in the same way.They’re both very capable leaders, and they both have very strict world views and strict ideas about how it is they’re going to keep their people safe. It’s a very psychotic mindset but I think that Negan does truly believe that by doing that he’s keeping people in line and keeping people protected.On Daryl’s lingering guilt that he may be responsible for Glen’s death:That will be a plotline for Daryl at some point in the next season. It’s just that Negan has kind of shifted in a certain direction and gone down a dark path, but I think they are in their own way two people who are devoted to the people they feel are under their protection and under their leadership.[Negan brutally punishes his own allies] to keep the other people in line.

It’s the most pirated show on TV every year. This morning, HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler confirmed the breach in an email to HBO employees (via EW):”‘As most of you have probably heard by now, there has been a cyber incident directed at the company which has resulted in some stolen proprietary information, including some of our programming. More is promised to be “‘coming soon.'”A few reporters got an anonymous email Sunday previewing the hack. As has been the case with any challenge we have ever faced, I have absolutely no doubt that we will navigate our way through this successfully.””Game of Thrones” Season 7 isn’t a stranger to leaks, since an entire rundown of the season was leaked months in advance. The problem before us is unfortunately all too familiar in the world we now find ourselves a part of. some “Game of Thrones” fans are constitutionally unable to *not* look at leaks and spoilers, so if GoT intel is out there, it will be dug up like dragonglass.HBO was recently hacked, Entertainment Weekly reports, with the hackers claiming to nab 1.5 terabytes of data. But… It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. Like us on Facebook. Posted July 31, 2017 by Gina CarboneHacking is bad. Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. And in Season 5, the first four episodes leaked online in advance, based off the press screening DVDs sent out before the premiere. Based on the season so far, those leaks were accurate, which means they have a bigger problem on their hands than cyber hacks — they have a mole leaking intel from production. HBO doesn’t send those out anymore, but it’s clear leaks and spoilers are still getting out.Those spoilers may anger HBO and the showrunners, but they haven’t hurt “Game of Thrones” in the ratings. Upcoming episodes of “Ballers” and new series “Room 104” have been put online, EW claims, and “There is also written material that’s allegedly from next week’s fourth episode of Game of Thrones. It’s probably Littlefinger, or maybe Lady Olenna, but there’s nothing you can do about her now.Seriously, though, “Game of Thrones” is a sieve. Far from it.

Social Media
Of course, “Emoji” was made to be marketed on your kids’ phones. Sony partnered with numerous apps to release “Emoji”-branded content. Hollywood has been complaining all summer that low scores on Rotten Tomatoes are hurting sales, but having no score at all doesn’t necessarily help.2. And “Emoji” stars like Christina Aguilera and Sofia Vergara were able to leverage their large social media followings into interest in the movie.7. “Dunkirk,” however, remains the current visual champ, with its wide-screen battle scenes. Look at this summer’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul,” which topped out at $20.7 million, or Sony’s own recent “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” whose $45.0 million domestic take is by far the lowest for the three “Smurfs” movies. Theron does well at the box office among ensemble casts — like this spring’s “Fate of the Furious,” or recent hits “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Prometheus.” She’s much less a draw on her own or as the biggest name in a cast (“The Huntsman: Winter’s War”).As for “Emoji,” many of the comedy-credentialed names in the voice cast (T.J. Often, their parents do, and there was little about the film that appealed to grown-ups.3. Female AppealStill, to the extent that it’s moms choosing which movie for the family to see, “Emoji” had a slight edge, drawing an audience that was 52 percent women and girls. Miller, Maya Rudolph) don’t matter to kids and won’t necessarily impress adults. IMAX and Cool Fight Scenes > Emojis Style was part of the selling point for “Atomic Blonde,” thanks to both its period setting and director David Leitch’s (“John Wick”) ability to stage inventive action scenes on a small budget ($30 million). A kid-appeal movie like “Emoji” ought to be critic-proof, but the CinemaScore grade indicates that paying customers were as disappointed as reviewers were. Here are a few more reasons: 1. It might have done better had it opened a week or two later, or it might have struggled against Stephen King fantasy epic “The Dark Tower” and Halle Berry’s “Kidnap.””Emoji,” however, benefited from being released a full month after the last major kids’ cartoon, “Despicable Me 3,” so it pretty much had the marketplace to itself.5. It’s a family-friendly cartoon based on the emoticons that every texting kid with opposable thumbs knows and loves. Critics also liked “Atomic Blonde” (75 percent at RT), but audiences were less thrilled (a B at CinemaScore).Viewers gave “Emoji” a B, which is a very weak grade for a cartoon. Most predicted a debut of around $20 million for the cartoon, yet it premiered with an estimated $2.7 million. Kids don’t always make the ticket-buying decisions. And the Friday to Saturday decline for “Emoji” looks like that’s exactly what happened. It’s currently hoarding the nation’s IMAX and large-format venues, resulting in a full $22 million of its $102.8 million earned to date coming from the giant screens and their ticket surcharges.To the extent that it takes eye-grabbing, immersive spectacle to draw moviegoers out of their living rooms and into the theaters, “Dunkirk” has a clear advantage.Adults may not be as fluent as kids are in the language of emojis, but a blank space at RT the day before a movie opens is a sign that smart, ticket-buying moms know how to read. Indeed female appeal has been the story of the summer, from “Wonder Woman” (at $395.4 million, it’s the summer’s biggest hit and the third biggest domestic hit of all time for Warner Bros., behind only Christopher Nolan’s last two Batmanmovies) to “Girls Trip” (this weekend’s third place finisher, with a strong $20.1 million in its second weekend).4. The World War II drama finished first again with an estimated $28.1 million. And Sony must have known critics wouldn’t like it, since it withheld the film from them until the last minute. Audience
Kids’ movies are not the automatic gold mine they once were. Bad reviews and less-than-okay audience ratings lead to “Emoji” striking out. Timing
“Atomic Blonde” took some advantage of the girl-power trend, though it had to settle for sharing the female audience with “Girls Trip” and the action audience with “Dunkirk” and several other holdover hits. Among new wide releases, “Emoji” beat Charlize Theron’s spy thriller “Atomic Blonde,” which underperformed slightly with an estimated $18.6 million and debuted in fourth place.Even so, “Emoji” wasn’t strong enough to overcome “Dunkirk,” a week-old movie aimed at much older audiences, with no box office stars. Star Power Is a Big DealFor the second straight week, the biggest name at the box office wasn’t anyone in front of the camera; rather, it was “Dunkirk” director Nolan. The reason? Casting a beloved Shakespearean thespian (Patrick Stewart) as the poop emoji isn’t going to fool grown-ups into thinking “Emoji” is a prestige picture.6. “Emoji” was also low-budget ($50 million, a pittance by animation standards), but its cheapness shows. Posted July 31, 2017 by Gary SusmanOn paper — or maybe on a smart phone screen — “The Emoji Movie” may have looked like a sure thing. And it’s from the studio that turned a phone game into a cartoon smash (“The Angry Birds Movie”) last summer.In fact, “Emoji” did surpass the modest expectations held by both its studio (Sony) and box office experts. “Dunkirk” has some of the year’s best reviews (with a 93 percent fresh score from critics at Rotten Tomatoes) and audience word-of-mouth (an A- at CinemaScore). To attract parents, it has a voice cast of popular stars. And critics absolutely hated it (8 percent “Rotten”). BuzzFamiliescan smell a bad movie, even a kid-oriented one, and stay away/not give it their box office.

The movie was originally scheduled to open in October, but it got moved up to September 15, and it will now compete at the Venice Film Festival, and have its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.The teaser mostly shows Lawrence walking around a seemingly empty house as we hear her voice, and the voices of her co-stars, including Ed Harris, Javier Bardem, and Michelle Pfeiffer. “What brings you to us,” Lawrence is heard asking at one point. “Did you know he had a wife?” “Who are these people?” Her unease escalates, with her character ultimately screaming, “You’re insane,” and “Murderer!”Watch the teaser:The full trailer arrives in about a week on August 8.

Time was set aside for them to study and play. Posted July 31, 2017 by Gina CarboneAngelina Jolie is understandably “upset” that her new Vanity Fair interview left readers believing she tricked starving orphans in a twisted money game to cast her new Netflix film.The truth, Jolie said in a statement to The Huffington Post, is that the children were aware that it was a “pretend exercise” improvisation from an actual scene in the film, “First They Killed My Father,” based on a survivor’s memories of the Khmer Rouge killings in Cambodia in the 1970s. The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. All of the children were tended to at all times by relatives or carers from the NGOs responsible for them. Like us on Facebook. Some were orphans. Parents, guardians, partner NGOs whose job it is to care for children, and medical doctors were always on hand everyday, to ensure everyone had all they needed. Because the memories of the genocide are so raw, and many Cambodians still have difficulty speaking about their experiences, a team of doctors and therapists worked with us on set every day so that anyone from the cast or crew who wanted to talk could do so.The children gave their all in their performances and have made all of us in the production, and, I believe, in Cambodia, very proud.””First They Killed My Father” is scheduled for release on Netflix in 2017.Want more stuff like this? She added that she would be outraged herself if real money had been taken away from any kids, and the whole point of the film is to help protect children caught in the crossfire of war.Rithy Panh, a Cambodian filmmaker and producer on the film, also called the criticism a “misunderstanding,” and shared his own lengthy statement to set the record straight.Here’s the full statement from Angelina Jolie:”Every measure was taken to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of the children on the film starting from the auditions through production to the present. The point of this film is to bring attention to the horrors children face in war, and to help fight to protect them.”A source added to HuffPost that the children were aware they were improvising a scene, and no real money was involved.Here’s part of producer Rithy Panh’s longer statement:”I want to comment on recent reports about the casting process for Angelina Jolie’s First They Killed My Father, which grossly mischaracterize how child actors were selected for the film, and I want to clear up the misunderstandings.Because so many children were involved in the production, Angelina and I took the greatest care to ensure their welfare was protected. The children’s well-being was monitored by a special team each day, including at home, and contact continues to the present. I would be outraged myself if this had happened. The production team followed the families’ preferences and the NGO organizations’ guidelines. Some were underprivileged; others were not. The children were from different backgrounds. And above all to make sure that no one was in any way hurt by participating in the recreation of such a painful part of their country’s history.I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario. Some of the auditions took place on the NGOs’ premises.[…]Great care was taken with the children not only during auditions, but throughout the entirety of the film’s making. Our goal was to respect the realities of war, while nurturing everyone who helped us to recreate it for the film.The casting was done in the most sensitive way possible. They were accompanied on set by their parents, other relatives or tutors.

Posted July 30, 2017 by ReutersBy Seth KelleyLOS ANGELES, June 25 ( — An unlikely battle emerged at the box office this weekend between “The Emoji Movie” and “Dunkirk.” As of Saturday morning the animated feature and war epic seemed to be in a dead heat. This time around it looks to take in $28.1 million from 3,748 locations, for a strong hold.It’s the first time that a movie has been first place two weekends in a row since the same studio’s “Wonder Woman” in early June. Conversely, EuropaCorp and STX’s “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” flopped last weekend, and is falling off fast. The animated adventure took a lot of heat from critics — reaction ranged from meh to horrible, earning its current Rotten Tomatoes score of 8%. Miller plays the central character, a “Meh” emoji who has “no filter,” meaning his expression can change. Patty Jenkins’ movie has had a phenomenal run since, and is currently closing in on $400 million domestic (right now it’s at $395.4 million).That means Sony’s “Emoji Movie” is in second for the weekend with $25.7 million from 4,075 locations. From those theaters, the critically approved crime drama took in $365,455 for a per screen average of $18,273.”We’re seeing that first and foremost, people are really into the movie,” said Annapurna’s distribution head Erik Lomis, who pointed to strong exit information, including 71% of the audience marked “definite recommend.” “It’s a Kathryn Bigelow film, so it’s for everybody,” he added.To treat the bigger picture, this weekend is not good news for the summer box office overall, which is now 8.1% behind last year.”We have been in a major struggle to compare favorably with last year’s summer season week after week and with yet another ‘down’ weekend on the books, the summer deficit just added another percentage point in the wrong direction,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore, who pointed out that this weekend’s crop could not compete with 2016’s “Jason Bourne” and “Bad Moms.” Looking ahead, the first weekend in August seems to signal even more gloom and doom, as several films will be measured up against “Suicide Squad’s” record breaking August 2016 tally. The rest of the cast includes James McAvoy, John Goodman, and Sofia Boutella.”We’re very happy with the opening. I feel this movie is going to have legs to it,” said Lisa Bunnell, distribution chief at Focus Features.Bunnell also pointed to Focus’ commitment to putting women in and front and behind the camera with recent releases including “The Beguiled” and “The Zookeeper’s Wife.” “There’s always a thought process behind ‘Let’s see some diversity,'” she said. “Blonde’s” launch is bigger than the first “Wick,” which opened in Fall 2014 to $14.4 million, but less than its sequel ($30.4 million).In “Blonde,” Theron plays a hardcore action star — the type of character that knocked out audiences in “Mad Max: Fury Road” — named Lorraine Broughton. This weekend, Luc Besson’s epic domestic dud should make $6.8 million from 3,553 locations.Annapurna showed Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit” at 20 locations before its wide rollout next weekend. “The audience has spoken and made the ‘Emoji Movie’ a family event.”That leaves this week’s other major release, “Atomic Blonde” somewhat straggling. Oh yeah, and Sir Patrick Stewart plays “Poop.””We’re thrilled,” said Sony’s marketing chief Josh Greenstein. It’s also one of the largest launches for Focus, behind only “Insidious Chapter 3” ($22.7 million); “London Has Fallen” ($21.6 million); and “Burn After Reading” ($19.1 million).The R-rated spy thriller has been compared to a female “Bond” or “John Wick.” After all, it shares DNA with the latter in stuntman-turned-director David Leitch, who will next helm the “Deadpool” sequel. “This is definitely a movie where Charlize takes center stage … The same cannot be said for the rest of the cast, which includes James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Christina Aguilera, and Sofia Vergara. Earlier in the week “Blonde” was pegged at $20 million, but the opening weekend result is still solid considering its $30 million budget. But by Sunday morning, most of the dust had settled, and it appears “Dunkirk” will once again be the weekend’s first place film.Christopher Nolan’s latest from Warner Bros. Focus Features and Sierra/Affinity is looking at a decent, but slightly below expectations launch for the Charlize Theron-starrer with $18.5 million from 3,304 locations. Its B CinemaScore is also quite low for an animated movie, meaning audiences aren’t particularly enjoying the movie either.T.J. she can fight men, and she can beat men, so it’s a really empowering movie to go see.””Blonde” will land just below the summer comedy event that “Girls Trip” has become. Universal’s release is posting $20.1 million during its second weekend from 2,648 theaters, for only a 36% drop from last weekend. over-performed last weekend when it opened to over $50 million, showing that the director, combined with positive critical reception, still has a strong draw — even for a movie lacking movie star power, and at risk of being written off as yet another World War II movie.

The rushed schedule meant that, instead of dismissing the writer, as Hollywood directors usually do, Kuzui kept Whedon on hand for rewrites. He sold it to Sandollar, Parton’s film production company.2.Fran Rubel Kuzui won the directing gig on the strength of her first film, “Tokyo Pop,” a fizzy sensation at the Cannes Film Festival.3. “Get over it.” Of the ego-deflating incident, Perry told Movieline, “That was so funny, so cool.”15. But as “Buffy” fans know, the dead often spring back to life. He ultimately walked off the set after disagreements with Kuzui, whom he felt made his vision too sunny and cheery, and with Sutherland, whose penchant for changing his dialogue or important character details (he didn’t want Merrick to die) drove Whedon crazy.12. Of Sutherland, Whedon said, “He’s a great actor. visited the “Buffy” set. A big-screen “Buffy” reboot was announced, one that would involve neither Whedon nor the stars of the show. By 2011, the stalled project lay dormant. He can read the phone book, and I’m interested. Still, in 2009, five years after “Buffy” ended its seven-season run, history nearly repeated itself. At the time the “Buffy” film was cast, its most famous name chose to play Buffy’s male love interest, Pike. Certainly when it was released 25 years ago this week, on July 31, 1992, no one could have imagined that the movie “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” would launch an empire.The cult film resulted not only in one of the most fiercely cherished TV series that ever aired, but it also helped launch the career of Joss Whedon, the pop culture auteur whose two “Avengers” films are among the biggest blockbusters ever made. A 17-year-old Hilary Swank got her first big break in Hollywood playing one of Buffy’s airhead friends. It earned back $16.6 million in North America, making it a cult success at best.16. I don’t think I’ll ever learn from any actor as much as he taught me.”14. Whedon has famously disavowed the “Buffy” movie as a dilution of the dark, haunted parable of adolescence he perfected later in the TV version. Future “Buffy” series regular Seth Green was in the film, but his role was cut. With Perry cast, the movie had to be rushed into production, as he had only a brief hiatus between “90210” seasons. A 19-year-old Ben Affleck (above) also got an early career break, in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it role as a high school jock.10. “I have to give him credit because he was there. Kuzui also clashed with Sutherland over his creative choices. “It’s a kids’ movie that Fox wanted made quickly,” Kuzui told Movieline magazine during the production.5. Trying to break into movies, the sideburned heartthrob wisely chose not to take a traditional leading-man role, but rather, to fill a supporting part, so that he wouldn’t be responsible for carrying the movie and its box office prospects on his shoulders.4. That was Luke Perry, at the height of “Beverly Hills, 90210”-mania. Here’s how it happened.1. Chen, however, turned out to be unavailable, so Kuzui had Whedon radically revise the part, for Paul “Pee-wee Herman” Reubens.8. “He was an enormous pain in the ass,” she told Movieline, adding, “and so am I. The movie cost a reported $9 million to make. That’s how Rutger Hauer became nemesis Lothos and Donald Sutherland became mentor Merrick.6. He was into it,” Whedon said of Hauer in a 2001 AV Club interview. “So you’re the man in town now, the new guy,” Downey said to newly-minted It Boy Perry. I had to run away.”13. And the studio wanted the film in theaters before the end of the summer. Posted July 30, 2017 by Gary SusmanIt seemed like just your ordinary, sweet, little, satirical, high school vampire horror comedy. Other big stars whom Kuzui sought in vain to cameo as vampires included David Bowie, Mick Jagger, and Cary Elwes.9. Oh, and it jump-started the careers of several A-list actors, too.A quarter-century later, we may all live in Whedon’s world, yet we scarcely have a clue how it all started, an origin story that involves country music icon Dolly Parton, a ridiculously rushed production schedule, and some massive ego clashes among the filmmakers and stars. Perry and star Kristy Swanson (of “Mannequin 2: On the Move” fame) weren’t going to attract ticket buyers in overseas markets, so the filmmakers sought some internationally-known names for supporting roles. Over the years, Whedon fans made fun of Hauer’s broad performance, but Whedon found his work less damaging to the movie than Sutherland’s. Future “Avengers” star Robert Downey Jr. So I got out of there. One of her first requests was that Whedon give Lothos a female sidekick, to be played by “Twin Peaks” co-star Joan Chen.7. Five years later, of course, Whedon got a second crack at the idea, and his teen heroine suddenly became the center of a successful franchise, with the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” TV series, spinoff series “Angel,” and a line of comic books. You can still see the back of his head for a few seconds.11. So the cameras had to start rolling in five weeks and wrap just six weeks after that. Whedon fans, including TV Buffy Sarah Michelle Gellar, loudly denounced the idea of a Whedon-free “Buffy” movie. “Buffy” was born when Whedon, then a 25-year-old second-generation TV writer with some “Roseanne” credits to his name, wrote his first screenplay. But the thing is, he acts well enough that you didn’t notice, with his little rewrites, and his little ideas about what his character should do, that he was actually destroying the movie more than Rutger was.

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 continues this Sunday, July 30 at 9 p.m. I can’t share that, but Deliveroo customers will have the chance to try them themselves. (and come back to life… This has made my day. And also, they should consider removing the “h” in the bakery name so it reads Jon Dough, like Jon Snow. Like us on Facebook. He won. Just a thought.Obviously, GoT fans have embraced the news, which made its way across Twitter in the past week, following Hot Pie’s surprise return in Season 7, Episode 2:Hot Pie from GoT has opened a real-life bakery called ‘You Know Nothing Jon Dough’. Want more stuff like this? YOU KNOW NOTHING JON DOUGH!?!?! You don’t even need to take a dangerous walk down the King’s Road to visit, it comes to you.”The snag is that the Deliveroo page currently reads, “You Know Nothing John Dough isn’t currently accepting orders.” As Nerdist speculated, “Our guess is they’ve been such a hit with fans they can’t keep up with demand.” Maybe if they raise the price over 1 Euro each, the demand won’t be so high.

Asked what they could tease about Season 4, Jones offered something suitably vague:”I think you can say there’s a range of genres within the season, and more ambitious, could I say? Potentially.”Listen to the full podcast:Netflix has yet to reveal the premiere date for “Black Mirror” Season 4. Season 3 arrived last October, but we may have to wait longer for Season 4.Want more stuff like this? Slightly more ambitious in scope. There’s a couple of ideas already in mind but we’re sort of thinking about practically how we could do that and when the right time to do that would be. They gave Season 2’s “White Bear” as an example, saying subsequently people have watched episodes waiting for the twists to come, even though other episodes — like Season 3’s “Nosedive” — have no twists.Speaking of “White Bear,” apparently that’s one story that could potentially have a sequel, although it sounds like that might not be on the table for Season 4 itself. Here’s more from Brooker:”We’ve had ideas for sequels to stories as well, which is something we haven’t entirely explored. They also noted fans have come to expect and look for twists, even though that was never their intention. So quite a few surprises, I’d say.”Without spoiling anything, Variety asked, could they reveal one of the genres they’re tackling this year?”Unpleasantness?” Brooker quipped.They said they want to retain the surprises and keep fans guessing. I wouldn’t be averse to it. Like us on Facebook. We’ve ventured into genres we haven’t been into before. Give it to our brains now!”Black Mirror” executive producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones just had a great talk with Variety’s “Remote Controlled” podcast, revealing they are nearing the end of Season 4’s shoot, working on the sixth episode of the Netflix series. Posted July 28, 2017 by Gina CarboneThe first three seasons of “Black Mirror” were about as bold and breakthrough as you could want, so the idea that Season 4 will be even more ambitious in terms of new genres and “quite a few surprises”?
