M. Night Shyamalan may be open for a season 2, but he is happy with how "Wayward Pines" season 1 ended.
While many Hollywood actors, as well as directors, are trying to do television crossovers, one good example of a director who has successfully transitioned into the TV business is none other than M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan made a mark in the horror genre when he directed films such as "The Sixth Sense," "Signs," and "The Village." It would only make sense that when he made his directorial debut on television with "Wayward Pines," the show also feautred horror and mystery.
"Wayward Pines" is based on the trilogy novel "Black Crouch." The show had been well received by many as the fast pace of the show left no dull moments for viewers. Starring Matt Dillon, alongside Oscar-winning Melissa Leo, Juliette Lewis, Oscar-nominated actor Terence Howards, and more, the series was definitely backed by a strong cast. However, for those familiar with the books, watching the show felt a bit too rushed, and many readers have criticized the show for cramming up all three books into one show. It is for this reason that many fans are hoping for more seasons, to see if the show will further explore the novels that they have come to love. more >>
The new web television series "Jessica Jones," that was created by Netflix, will be premiering on November 20, Friday. All episodes of the Netflix exclusive will be available for marathon viewing on the said date. In the run up to the series premiere, the network has released several teaser clips and trailers of the show, giving fans a glimpse of the main character of the show, Jessica Jones. According to a report in Design and Trend, the network even provided a sneak peek of episode 1 during the New York Comic Con.
According to the report, the show has a much darker flavor than the other Marvel show on Netflix, "Daredevil." The series touches on very mature issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder, assault and a manner of other violent crimes. Aside from this, the series also takes a look at issues of sexuality, which is expected because the original comics "Alias" which the show is based on, was one of the first R-rated comics of Marvel.
The report also noted that those expecting the show to be the typical Marvel superhero show are going to be disappointed. The show is, first and foremost, a psychological thriller and this is so because of the presence of the Purple Man as the series antagonist. Played by David Tennant, the Purple Man, also known as Kilgrave, seems to exercise some form of powerful mind control over the protagonist, Jessica Jones, played by Krysten Ritter. In one of the teaser clips of the series, his creepy voice is heard saying: "Jessica, I know your secrets. I know your friends. I know about your gifts. I know everything." He is also described as "An enigmatic figure from Jessica's past, Kilgrave's reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero's world." Although he may not appear as the Purple Man in the series, his role in haunting the series protagonist is quite evident as shown in the series trailer. more >>
