Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan Reunite For Wes Anderson Film The French Dispatch

Indie-movie-lovers, rejoice, because Wes Anderson's new film The French Dispatch premieres in theaters this Summer. With an all-star cast, including Timothée Chalamet (The King), Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), Elisabeth Moss (Us), and Tilda Swinton (Uncut Gems), we are positive that Anderson's latest film will be phenomenal.

Set to premiere on July 24, The French Dispatch will be Anderson's first film set in Paris, where the writer-director currently lives. The premise is shrouded in mystery, but IndieWire reports that the official synopsis is a "love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th Century Paris." When speaking to French publication Charente Libre in April 2019, Anderson said that "the story is not easy to explain," adding, "[It's about an] American journalist based in France [who] creates his magazine. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write. It's not a

Channel 4 Says Its Door Is Wide Open To More ‘The End Of The F***ing World’
Exclusive: If Charlie Covell decides to return to her cult drama The End Of The F***ing World, she will be pushing on an open door at Channel 4, which originally commissioned the show and co-produced it with Netflix.

That’s according to Channel 4 director of programs Ian Katz, who told Deadline that Covell “can keep doing that one as long as she likes” when asked if he can coax the writer into penning a third season of the show, which stars Jessica Barden and Alex Lawther.

“I think she might take a breather doing something else for a while, but she’s a classic writer,” Katz said, adding that it is Channel 4’s most-binged show ever. He said The End Of The F***ing World was an example of a co-production that has worked for Channel 4 because it is “deeply relatable and relevant to a British audience.”

End of the F***ing World: In Case You Forgot, Here's What Happens With the Professor

  • Popsugar
The second season of The End of the F***ing World is finally upon us, and the first episode surrounded a pretty familiar (and twisted) character - Professor Clive Koch (Jonathan Aris).

In case you've forgotten, we were first introduced to Professor Koch in season one of the Netflix original. James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden) take refuge in his seemingly abandoned home after deciding to run away from their current lives. After breaking in, James and Alyssa begin to snoop around the professor's home, and James uncovers a plethora of Polaroid photos and a video tape of the professor assaulting and raping a multitude of young women. This discovery terrifies James, and he remains on edge for the rest of the evening.

After an evening of dining, drinking, and dancing, James and Alyssa finally decide to call it a night and head to bed. Alyssa decides to sleep in the master bedroom,

The End of the F***ing World’s Alex Lawther: ‘He’s not a psychopath, he’s just very sad’

TV’s most dangerous couple are back for a new season of the killer comedy. Lawther and co-star Jessica Barden explain why there’s sweetness beneath the show’s brutal nihilism

Alex Lawther and Jessica Barden bound towards each other in a basement boardroom in Channel 4’s London offices and hug like long-lost siblings. “I’m wearing my End of the F***ing World necklace,” Barden tells Lawther proudly, pointing to one of those heart pendants you break apart and share with a friend. Lawther shakes his head. “Ah, I didn’t put mine on today,” he says, sounding as if he’s committed a mortal sin, “but I’ll definitely wear it to the launch”.

  • Popsugar
Warning: Major spoilers for season two of The End of the F***ing World ahead!

Season two of The End of the F***ing World introduces a new character within its first episode and her name is Bonnie (Naomi Ackie).

Early on in the second season, both James and Alyssa receive bullets in the mail with their names engraved in them. Though the sender of the ominous gift isn't revealed immediately, a scene later in the series confirms that it's Bonnie herself that sends the bullets.

In season one of the show, we saw Alyssa and James murder Professor Clive Koch after he tried to violently assault Alyssa. However, Alyssa wasn't the only victim of the professor's actions.

‘End of the F***ing World’ Season Two: A Perfect Ending Undone
“It was a fitting end. A doomed love story. A perfect tragedy.”

This is a character in Season Two of The End of the F***ing World describing the dark comedy’s first season. Across eight compact episodes, that season followed mismatched would-be lovers James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden) — him a potential psychopath incapable of feeling anything, her an open wound who always felt too much — on an unintentional crime spree across the English countryside. There was murder, mayhem, vintage country music, and an utterly fitting but deliberately

Link Tank: Henry Kissinger Warns of Potential Dangers of A.I.

Spencer Mullen Nov 6, 2019

The End of the F***ing World, Rick and Morty Season 4, Henry Kissinger, and more in today's daily Link Tank!

The best episode of the first season of Rick and Morty will inspire the show's new season.

"When we talk about Rick and Morty being “meta” or subversive, the most important example is Season 1’s “Meeseeks and Destroy,” one of the all-time greatest episodes that’s ostensibly a story about stories in its deconstruction of the Hero’s Journey and introduction of the Morty Adventure Card. More important, however, the episode introduced us to the bright blue Meeseeks, a creature that remains one of the most recognizable bits from all of Rick and Morty in its maddening desire to accomplish a single task before it is erased from existence."

‘The End of the F***ing World’ Review: Season 2 Is Pretty Much What Everyone Was Worried About

As is the standard with binge culture, the conversation around “The End of the Fucking World” Season 1 was almost entirely dominated by its ending. Despite all eight episodes offering food for thought on abuse, violence, and love, Netflix audiences’ quick consumption habits set their sights on what is, after all, a shocking finale — 17-year-old James (Alex Lawther) is presumably gunned down by the police while trying to save the love of his young life, Alyssa (Jessica Barden), from being blamed for their recent crime spree. I say “presumably gunned down” because the final shot cuts to black before we can actually see James’ death, but his ugly fate could be safely assumed given a) it’s the logical culmination of his tragic arc, and b) it’s the ending in Charles Forsman’s original comic book.

But because of the series’ added ambiguity, plenty of chatter focused not only on the ending,

‘The End of the F***ing World': Here’s Where We Left James and Alyssa Before Season 2

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Season 1 of “The End of the F***ing World”)

The second season of Netflix’s “The End of the F***ing World” hits Netflix on Nov. 5, and TheWrap is here to give you a quick refresher on where the teen-murder dramedy series left off.

It’s been the better part of two years since we last saw James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden), and things weren’t looking too good for our heroes when things went black at the end of Season 1. James was shot as he ran away from the police while Alyssa screamed after him, struggling in the grips of the police.

In case you forgot, the two teenagers are wanted for the murder of a man named Clive (Jonathan Aris), whose house they broke into while he was out of town. Well, Clive turned out to be a serial abuser

“Where is your plan” on climate change? That is the question posed by a host of British film, TV, and music stars in “One Lifetime,” a short film from Richard Curtis and Rankin for high-profile environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion.

“The End of the F***ing World” actor Alex Lawther, “Downton Abbey” star Jim Carter, “Harry Potter” actress Imelda Staunton, singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding and director Stephen Frears all appear.

Four Weddings and a Funeral” filmmaker Curtis developed the concept for the film and iconic British photographer Rankin shot and produced it. Jordan Rossi directed.

The logo of Extinction Rebellion flashes on screen at the start of the film, which splices black and white and color segments and features on-screen graphics underscoring their demands.

The End of the F***ing World, Season 2

Set to Graham Coxon’s stripped-down cover of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding,” clips show Alyssa (Jessica Barden) trying on her wedding gown, walking down the aisle and looking mournful at her own reception. While the trailer does not show who she is marrying, it does appear that her boyfriend James (Alex Lawther) is, in fact, dead, which remained uncertain in the first season’s cliff-hanger ending. The trailer ends with its own cliffhanger: one bullet standing upright on a table with ‘James’ engraved on its side.

Is James Even in The End of the F***Ing World Season 2? Here's What We Know

  • Popsugar
The first season of The End of the F***ing World ended with a massive cliffhanger. Main characters Alyssa (Jessica Bardem) and James (Alex Lawther) reach a point of no return as the law finally catches up with them after a series of misadventures and one tiny case of murder. Determined to keep Alyssa out of prison, James runs off alone. The last time we see him, we hear a gunshot going off before the show fades to black.

This ominous scene left us worried about James's fate, and things started to look bleak for the self-proclaimed psychopath as more information about the second season surfaced. Although Lawther suggested he would be excited to be back, he has been pretty tight-lipped about his involvement in season two. And the trailer for the second season features mostly Alyssa with only a split-second scene of James lying on the sand, bleeding from a gunshot wound.

First Trailer For Netflix's The End Of The F***Ing World Season 2 - "It's a Nice Day For a White Wedding"

The first full trailer has been released for Netflix’s second season of The End of the F***ing World. This next season picks up two years after Season 1 with Jessica Barden’s Alyssa “dealing with the fallout of the events.”

The trailer is cut to a cover of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding” and it features Alyssa in a wedding dress at a wedding, but she certainly doesn’t look happy. The only footage of Alex Lawther’s James in the trailer shows him bleeding out on the beach they visited in the Season 1 finale. The trailer doesn’t reveal if James is dead or alive, but I imagine he didn’t make it.

The Season 2 cast also includes Naomi Ackie as Bonnie, an outsider with a troubled past… and a mysterious connection to Alyssa.

Charlie Covell returned to write Season 2, which is inspired by characters from the award-winning
