Some good news for “Killing Eve” fans: AMC Networks has announced it is moving the Season 3 premiere of “Killing Eve” up by two weeks. The news comes accompanying a flirtatious first trailer, which teases plenty of the stylish edits, wry dark humor, and Sapphic obsession-filled tension that Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s award-winning spy drama is known for. Unfortunately, nothing in this trailer confirms or denies that this will be the season that our two anti-heroines finally consummate their mutually destructive obsessive romance. But it still looks like a whole lot of fun.
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for Season 2 of “Killing Eve.”]
The Season 2 finale left Eve Sandra Oh presumed dead, having been shot in the back by her best frenemy/would-be lover Villanelle Jodie Comer. However, as the titular role, it was believe that twist would last. The first teaser confirms that Eve is very much alive, and Villanelle is very much still insane and obsessed with her.
The official synopsis reads: “The third season of the award-winning drama continues the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice. For Villanelle Jodie Comer, the assassin without a job, Eve Sandra Oh is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances...and perhaps a share of their souls.”
“We know how adored this series is and we know how keen people are for great content right now,” said AMC President Sarah Barnett of the decision to push the release date up. “This season of ‘Killing Eve’ digs deep psychologically, and with actors like Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw the results are nothing short of astonishing. We literally couldn't wait for fans to see it.”
AMC will premiere the third season of “Killing Eve” next Sunday, April 12 at 9/8c. As was previously announced, all eight new episodes will be simulcast on BBC AMERICA and AMC.

Sam Mendes directed what many James Bond fans would call one of the best 007 movies ever made with the Oscar-winning “Skyfall,” but don’t expect the “American Beauty” and “1917” filmmaker to return to the spy franchise in the future. Mendes calls the Bond production machine “unhealthy” in a new GQ profile on 007 leading man Daniel Craig. Mendes went through a tumultuous production on “Skyfall” follow-up movie “Spectre,” which continued to have various script changes through the film shoot. That’s nothing compared to Craig’s “Quantum of Solace,” which started filming without a completed screenplay. Mendes says, “There has always been an element that Bond has been on the wing and a prayer. It is not a particularly healthy way to work.”
Bond’s on-the-fly production machine left Mendes and Craig emotionally and physically exhausted, so much so in the latter’s case that Craig infamously joked he’d rather “slit his wrists” than make another Bond movie. Craig was being hyperbolic, but he was serious about wanting to walk away. As the actor told GQ, “I was never going to do one again. I was like, 'Is this work really genuinely worth this, to go through this, this whole thing?' And I didn't feel...I felt physically really low. So the prospect of doing another movie was just like, it was off the cards. And that's why it has been five years.”
Mendes made headlines last December for being critical of getting involved with the Bond franchise. “When I think of them my stomach churns,” Mendes told The Sunday Times of his Bond movies. “It's just so hard. You feel like the England football manager. You think, if I win, I'll survive. If I lose, I'll be pilloried. There is no victory. Just survival.” The director added there are simply too many fans across the world to please when it comes to the James Bond films, saying, “Everyone has their own version of it in their head.
Craig’s next Bond outing, “No Time to Die,” will be his final time playing 007. The Cary Fukunaga-directed tentpole recently pushed back its release from April to the Thanksgiving holiday in November because of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak.
Netflix has released the first trailer for Extraction. This one, on paper, has a whole lot going for it. For one, it's one of few new blockbuster-level releases viewers will be able to watch this month, as movie theaters all around the country remain closed. It also features Chris Hemsworth in the lead. To top it all off, he's reunited with Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Endgame, who are producing the original thriller. And, based on this first trailer, this could certainly be something to look forward to this month.
The trailer opens up with Chris Hemsworth doing some intense cliff diving/meditation before some of the action kicks in. We get the sense that Hemsworth has something of a death wish. We then get to the heart of the matter, which sees this man having to rescue the son of a drug lord, who was kidnapped by a rival drug lord. Things escalate, to say the very least of it, and Hemsworth is left trying to fight off impossible odds to keep this kid safe. This does seem to lay everything out on the table, seemingly not leaving much up to the imagination, but it's an impressive trailer. Lots of action. Real stakes.RELATED: Netflix's Extraction Poster Shows Chris Hemsworth as a Deadly Black Market Mercenary googletag.cmd.pushfunction ;
New Netflix original Extraction centers on a hardened mercenary's mission, which becomes a soul-searching race to survive when he's sent into Bangladesh to rescue a drug lord's kidnapped son. The cast also includes Rudhraksh Jaiswal, David Harbour, Derek Luke and Golshifteh Farahani. Taking to Twitter, Chris Hemsworth expressed his excitement in sharing the trailer, especially at this moment in time, given what's going on in the world.'So happy to finally be able to share the trailer for Extraction with you all! This has been a difficult few months for all of us, and we hope this will provide a bit of entertainment while we are all staying home.'
This trailer arrives after an Extraction poster proved to be quite popular after it was unveiled. Netflix has been ramping up its work with A-list filmmakers in the past few years and this is a huge example of that. The Russo brothers, coming off of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, have been busy producing a number of high-profile projects. In this case, Joe Russo wrote the screenplay and is producing alongside his brother, Anthony Russo. Re-teaming them with Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, makes this an impressive package deal.
Sam Hargrave, a longtime stunt coordinator who has worked on quite a few massive blockbusters in his day, including Captain America: Civil War with the Russo brothers, is making his feature directorial debut. Hargrave also worked on Atomic Blonde, The Hunger Games series and Suicide Squad, as well as a few other MCU titles like Thor: Ragnarok. So he knows his way around a big...
