Poldark is back this June and continues to hold my attention. For a hint on the first episode of season three, here’s a link:

Zoo, on the other hand, seems to flounder. That’s the difference maybe between one that is based on a book (Zoo) and another that is based on a series of books (Poldark). The fluidity of story in well-developed stories gives the audience some predictability and pleasant twists. In the case of the other, the concept seems a bit lacking in direction and sometimes forced.


Queen Confirms The Freddie Mercury Biopic Starring Rami Malek Is ‘Finally Happening’

Finally, a last!


After what feels like a period of roughly six centuries, the forever delayed Freddie Mercury biopic is officially happening. Queen (the band, not the Elizabeth) confirmed the news online.

“Yes folks, it IS finally happening,” declared an update on the official site for the arena rock legends.

Pre-production is currently slated for next week with principal photography beginning “as soon as mid-September.” Included in this project update also comes further confirmation that Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek will be playing the supernaturally charismatic frontman and go-to X-Men helmer Bryan Singer is onboard to serve as director. The rest of the casting is either undecided or being kept under wraps, but guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor feel like they’ve found their Freddie.

We’ll never have the two performances to compare, but having Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury definitely gives off a different tone than when Sacha Baron Cohen was penciled into that mighty catsuit. Here’s hoping this version takes about a half-decade shorter to get to where it needs to go.
