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.

Free Guy, the film in which Ryan Reynolds plays an NPC living in a violent video game world, was among the many movies that Disney shuffled around on the release calendar today due to the coronavirus pandemic. The movie, which was initially supposed to arrive this July, will now hit theaters on December 11, 2020. To make that delay a little more bearable, Reynolds shared a clip from the film on his YouTube page of his character sitting inside his apartment as the outside world goes absolutely insane around him. #RelatableAFFree Guy Clip
In his caption to the video, Reynolds wrote:
Free Guy is moving to Dec. 11. Here’s a clip that’s weirdly appropriate. We cut it a while ago while there was still a Fox and before it was just 20th Century Pictures and couldn’t finish it so ignore the watermarks. Thanks to Aspect for cutting it.
Seems like it could be the opening scene of the movie, since it does a good job of setting the stage and painting a grim picture of the insane world that this character is living in. I’m probably one of the few people who weren’t super impressed by the first trailer that came out, but I enjoyed this clip, so I’m hoping that I’ll dig the movie when it’s eventually released and that the construction of the trailer below isn’t fully representative of the final product.
Shawn Levy Real Steel, Stranger Things, Night at the Museum directs, marking his first feature directing gig in six years. The story is from Matt Lieberman The Christmas Chronicles, Scoob!, and Lieberman wrote the screenplay with Zak Penn Ready Player One. Reynolds stars alongside Jodie Comer Killing Eve, Joe Keery Stranger Things, Lil Rel Howery Get Out, Utkarsh Ambudkar he did that bizarre recap rap at this year’s Oscars, which feels like it happened several lifetimes ago, and Taika Waititi Thor: Ragnarok.
Here’s the official description which is slightly outdated, since it’s still described as a “Fox” movie instead of 20th Century Studios:
In Twentieth Century Fox’s epic adventure-comedy “Free Guy,” a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game, decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.
Free Guy now hopes to hit theaters on December 11, 2020.
Welcome to The Clock Tower, where we’ll break down the goings on of the The CW network’s Arrowverse. We’ll touch on things like themes, cultural impact, lead-ins to major events, ships, and more every week! Warning: this Clock Tower is filled with spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.
So the world’s falling apart and you’ve turned to your superhero stories for comfort! Welcome! This week tackled a bunch of “fun” topics like murder, transphobia, and prematurely saying goodbye to longtime friends because contracts were about to expire and networks felt the need to write them off. Fun stuff! By and large, everyone did a solid job. The Flash is the only series that’s currently struggling a bit in the narrative department, but I think they ultimately have a point. Let’s dive in!The Farewell
One of my first pieces here at /Film was an article lamenting what Legends of Tomorrow would lose by saying goodbye to Ray Palmer and Nora Darhk. One is a constant beacon of hope and optimism, even in the darkest of times, the other a symbol insisting that your trauma doesn’t get to define you. The idea of losing them has been heart-wrenching since it was announced.
While the writers did their best to give a good reason for the departure and a solid farewell episode, it did little to make the farewell any easier. Obviously, the most difficult part of this story was always going to be seeing Ray say goodbye to Nate.
The SteelAtom friendship is, to this day, one of the best on-screen depictions of male friendship I’ve ever seen. There’s not an ounce of toxicity to it. It’s just bros being bros doing bro stuff all the while loving each other as fiercely as all men should be allowed to.
We all watched the same show, I’m not going to recap their goodbye. We all saw it, most of us ugly cried. It sucked. I will miss Ray and Nora forever.Dream on Dreamer
No I’m not sorry for getting Cascada stuck in your head. This week’s episode of Supergirl finally buckled down and gave us some Dreamer content. While it was worth the wait, let’s not go another half season without giving the gal something to do, yeah?
Nia decides to take things into her own hands after a transphobic creep starts targeting trans women to get to Dreamer. He doesn’t think that she’s the right kind of symbol for his “good” and “right” community. When you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes, and Mr. “Good” – no, his character name wasn’t even worth remembering – played a real, real stupid game.
We fittingly see Dreamer angrier than we’ve ever seen her in the past. There is a plague trying to wipe out her community, and she’s going to eradicate that plague no matter how hard Kara pleads with her to let a system that’s consistently failed her and her trans brothers and...
