New “Black Panther” Footage Gets Standing Ovation at Comic-Con

So who was happier to see the new Black Panther footage at San Diego Comic-Con, the fans or the cast? The moderator of Marvel’s panel on Saturday, Chris Hardwick, informed the crowd that the stars had just seen the fresh film footage for the first time as well. Director Ryan Coogler introduced the footage, which was for the Comic-Con crowd’s eyes only, following a brief Q&A with a long lineup of cast members, including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.  The scene opened in a high-end poker room.  Boseman, Nyong’o, and Gurira’s characters whisper as Serkis arrives to negotiate a deal with Freeman. The scene eventually cuts to a montage set to the tune of Kendrick Lamar’s DNA. Before the footage screened, Coogler expressed his appreciation to the Comic-Con crowd. “I grew up as a young black kid in the Bay Area,” he said. “As I got older I wanted to find a comic book character who looked like I did.” The first character he saw that did that was Black Panther“To be here … is amazing,” Coogler said, adding that he wants the movie to show “someone who got his power from the people around him and his history.” A big thanks to the post production team for choosing EPS-Cineworks for all their post production technical needs!

And the Title of “American Horror Story” Season 7 Is…

After sharing a multitude of teases for American Horror Story‘s seventh season, ranging from bees to clowns to intriguing dye jobs, producer Ryan Murphy finally revealed the title. So without further adieu, get ready for American Horror Story: Cult. Clues were first teased at San Diego Comic-Con Thursday.  Cult will be inspired by the 2016 presidential election with the premiere taking place on election night. The season will showcase both sides of the political dive, but specifically highlight groups of people who “are ignored by the current administration and who are afraid and feel terrorized that their lives are going to be taken away.” The season will also have strong connections to Freak Show, including featuring the return of Twisty the Clown.  A big thanks to the Post Production team for trusting EPS-Cineworks as their technical service provider. The new season will premiere on FX on September 5 at 10/9c.

“I’m Sorry”: TV Review

Andrea Savage dives into the pool of wince-inducing comedy and comes up with some laughs on her new truTV show. The short look truTV gave critics for I’m Sorry are enough to garner laughs and have you make a mental note to come back next week to see where it goes. Savage plays a comedian, writer and mom who hasn’t stopped being funny just because she’s had to grow up.  In fact, she will say anything inappropriate when given the chance, and that, in turn, tends to get her in a number of wince-inducing situations as she tries to explain herself (hence the title, one would assume). But early on, the show feels like it’s already in rhythm, which is a nice surprise. It’s executive produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay with Andy Samberg’s production company Kablamo! executive producing as well, so there’s plenty of pedigree here. The hard part will be standing out in a crowded field. But tons of series are facing that same problem and managing to get into second and third seasons so it’s not impossible, and I’m Sorry certainly deserves a look. We truly enjoy working with the post production at EPS-Cineworks and wish the show nothing but success. Check it out tonight at 10pm ET/PT on truTV. 

HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Date Announced

Seems like October is going to be a pretty great month for Larry David. The ninth season of his hit comedy series, Curb Your Enthusiasm,  is set to return to HBO on Oct. 1, 2017. HBO announced the return was officially happening last June, but announced the news again with an official trailer on YouTube. The series has been off the air since 2011. The hit comedy stars “Seinfeld” co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. With 80 episodes to date, the show is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy or drama series. The whole “Curb” main gang will be returning for Season 9, including David, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, JB Smoove and Susie Essman. Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen are also set to appear in the series, playing themselves. Be sure to be on the lookout for the premier.
