The Taboo trailer is here. Drama series starring Tom Hardy



Back in November 2014  I first wrote about this drama series TABOO , which was set to be produced by Ridley Scott , and star Tom Hardy.  At that point my interest was not at all that big, as I said “I might watch it “.  Now the eight episode series has released its first trailer, and I must say my interest is slightly elevated. Have a look :


Set in 1813, “Taboo” is based on an original story by Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy ( yes , his name is Chips ) . Hardy has the lead role of “James Keziah Delaney,” an adventurer who returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds looking for vengeance after the death of his father ( Chips ? ). Refusing to sell the family business to the East India Company, he sets out to build his own trade and shipping empire and finds himself playing a very dangerous game ( Monopoly for realz )
Taboo is still in production and will not be out until at least 2017, when it will be shown on FX.  It is the first major production for Tom Hardy’s company Hardy Son & Baker ( wonder why it wasn’t Hardy Son & Chips )

What did you think of the trailer ? Let me know by posting me an actual letter. Or do the lazy thing and comment below.

Marvel casts Elodie Yung As Elektra In Season Two Of Daredevil


Marvel has announced today that Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, District 13: Ultimatum) has joined the cast of Daredevil. Yung will play Elektra, a woman from Matt Murdock’s past .

The first season of Daredevil made reference to Elektra, but now Yung will portray one of Daredevil’s fan-favorite characters.


Elektra marks the most recent major addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as she will join Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle in the upcoming season of the Netflix Original Series.


“After a worldwide search, we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality, as well as her psychological complexity,” said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb in a statement today. “Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.”

Blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. Daredevil also stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Jon Bernthal, and Rosario Dawson.

What say you Benders ??  Are they going to far ? Jumping The Shark ??  Kingpin, Elektra, and Punisher ? And they have to have Foggy and Karen for some reason. And what about the HAND. Are they not pissed that Nobu got killed?? And what about Stick and his clan ?  Will 13 episodes be enough for all this ??  Sound off. Like and retweet. Comment below etc

“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series,”  will be returning to El Rey Network August 25, and today a trailer has been released for the second season.



“From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series” is a Miramax production in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Sugarcane Entertainment. Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, Carlos Coto , Diego Gutierrez , John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa.

I wasn’t that big a fan of the show. I liked parts of it, but never really saw it going passed one season. I will be giving it a chance when it starts airing again, but my expectations are very low.
