Netflix Releases Motion Poster for Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’

Netflix and Marvel Television have released a “motion poster” for their latest co-production, Jessica Jones, which will be released on Nov. 20. It appears the poster features all-new art by noted Daredevil comic book artist Alex Maleev.

Coming up this Friday is the first full trailer for the series, but in the meantime, we can have a look at the last teaser trailer, which features the voice of DOCTOR WHO’s 10th Doctor, David Tennant, as Killraven, a.k.a. the Purple Man, who appears to be the Big Bad for this season.

Jessica Jones focuses on former super heroine Jessica (Krysten Ritter), who now works as a private investigator in Hell’s Kitchen in New York City specializing in cases involving people with extraordinary abilities.

The series also stars Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper.

All 13 episode of the series will premiere at the same time on Netflix on Nov. 20.

Watch the Opening Minutes of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

The spin-off/prequel to THE WALKING DEAD, called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on AMC. The network released a video of the opening three minutes of the pilot, and here it is:

 

 

It’s probably just me, but I am still not sold on this series. This opening doesn’t strike me as mysterious and interesting — even if it does parallel Rick’s awakening in the premiere of the mothership — it just feels forced and dragged out.

You can bet I’ll be watching tonight and I’ll be hoping for the best, but I’ve got a bad feeling about this…

GOTHAM 1.01: “Pilot”

gotham01GOTHAM is the prequel series that promises to tell the story of Gotham City before Batman came on to the scene; we’re supposed to learn how things got so bad that only a man in a bat costume could save it. There’s fertile ground for lots of stories here to expand the Batman universe – but it could easily go off the rails. Sadly, the premiere episode set a direction of shrinking that world.

The series focuses of straight-arrow newbie Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and his crooked veteran partner, Det. Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), and we learn about the corruption-plagued town through the eyes of Gordon and the evolution of Gotham City’s more bizarre criminal elements. Seems like a solid premise.

INTRUDERS 1.01: “She Was Provisional”

INTRUDERSCan you keep a secret? The debut episode of INTRUDERS kinda sucked. The pilot played as intentionally vague and purposely confusing – as if being obtuse made it somehow deeper. I felt like I was on the outside of the show looking in – and the people inside were all old friends who weren’t interested in letting me in on the joke. I know it sounds weird to want more of something bad, but this show could have benefited from a two-hour debut. But only if we would have gotten more exposition, not more mysteries.

(BBC America’s INTRUDERS did well in the ratings, pulling in 1.5 million viewers, Variety says, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3″ estimates.)

Jack Is Back in First 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY Trailer

Kiefer Sutherland’s iconic Jack Bauer character returns in the reboot of 24 — now trimmed down to a lean 12 episodes — that finds international fugitive Jack trying to prevent the assassination of the U.S. president in London.

However, just like every other series of 24, no one believes Jack, and this time he’s being hunted by CIA operative Kate Morgan, played by CHUCK’s Yvonne Strahovski (last seen in the tragically disappointing DEXTER series finale).

As you can see, Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lyn Rajskub) is back, and William Devane’s James Heller has been elevated from secretary of defense (in 2007’s series) to president! Also glimpsed: Kim Raver as Audrey Raines!

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY debuts May 5 on Fox.

SUITS 1.1: Pilot

Television needs another law show like the real world needs more lawyers – which is to say, not at all. Into this overcrowded landscape we get USA’s new summer series SUITS, the latest “wacky” attorney drama, and it is about as welcome as getting a papercut from a frivolous lawsuit.

SUITS has a marginally interesting premise: Mike (Patrick J. Adams) has a photographic memory that allows him to quote law books exactly – meaning he can pass the bar, but he’s not a lawyer. He’s an aimless pothead whose dealer buddy bullies him into working as a courier — and accidentally sets him up to be arrested. While ducking the police with a briefcase full of pot, Mike stumbles into a recruitment drive by the city’s top law firm. Harvey (Gabriel Macht), the firm’s self-obsessed ace, learns that Mike is not only not a lawyer but a stoner, yet he hires the kid anyway. Testy senior partner Jessica (Gina Torres) assigns Harvey a pro bono sexual-harassment case that he promptly pawns off on Mike, and together they find a brilliant way to win it. And then Mike decides he doesn’t need pot or his dealer pal anymore, and dumps him to make a go of it as an attorney.
