Until we can get back to the movie theaters we will always the comfort of the streaming platforms, which are still premiering each week’s new titles that make more bearable the quarantine. And that is just what Netflix expected to pass with its next big bet: Tyler Rake. A tape of action starring Chris Hemsworth that promises to leave us glued to the screen until the end.

Although it’s been a few days already warned that it would be the next April 24, when we could see it, has been today when they posted the trailer of this film that Hemsworth gives life to a mercenary with nothing to lose named Tyler Rake. A man without fear of anything that receives a commission very dangerous: rescue the child kidnapped from a capo of the mafia in prison.

It will be there when Hemsworth will plunge into the murky world of the drug traffickers and traffickers of weapons to complete a mission that was expected lethal but that soon becomes a challenge virtually impossible that will forever change the lives of its protagonists. We will, just the type of movie that the husband of Elsa Pataky needed to rest for a few months of the fantastic universe Marvelwhere it takes years to embody Thor.

BBC4 to dive into Pioneer’s “Ocean Autopsy”

British pubcaster BBC4 has selected early June to launch Ocean Autopsy, the latest science documentary from Pioneer Productions, a division of Tinopolis Group.

Ocean Autopsy will follow leading oceanographer Dr. Helen Czerski and zoologist Dr. George McGavin (pictured) as they examine the damage to the ocean and its habitants as caused by humanity.

The 90-minute film will document the pair as they examine the water’s toxicity due to industrial chemicals and investigate microplastics saturating the water in an attempt to discover how this impacts the ecosystem. In addition, the experts will perform an autopsy on a porpoise to “highlight the devastating impact these changes are having on marine life.”

The film, executive produced by Pioneer Productions’ Peter Collins, will also reveal how nature can be restored through re-wilded salt marshes, flooded to counter rising seas, and biodiversity hotspots at the base of wind farms.

Ocean Autopsy is scheduled to premiere June 8 at 9 p.m. on BBC4.

“We were really keen to tell the story of our fragile oceans beyond just plastics – invisible killers, like PCBs and other chemicals, are having devastating effects on entire marine ecosystems,” said Collins in a statement. “The film uncovers the truth about these human induced pollutants, as well as exploring the possible solutions.”

“This program explores the problems that humans have caused in the ocean and asks what we can do to prevent further damage and choose a healthier ocean future,” added Dr. Czerski. “I’ve spent years working at sea and researching our oceans, and this is a topic that really matters to me. The global ocean is the heart of our planetary life support system. Only now are we realizing that hurting the ocean is hurting ourselves, because we are citizens of an ocean world.”

John Krasinski Surprised 2020 Grads with Steven Spielberg & Oprah Winfrey

True to the title of his new YouTube series, John Krasinski gave graduates from the class of 2020 some good news on Sunday’s Some Good News. The actor-turned-host enlisted the help of Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Jon Stewart, and Malala Yousafzai (who also was not able to celebrate her graduation publicly in 2020) to provide guidance to outgoing college students via video conference, shocking and delighting grads who are sheltered in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After holding a kind of virtual graduation for a select group of students, including the curation of inspirational words from a handful of class speakers, Krasinski picked four graduates to ask a question to their commencement speakers. “Last year, I gave a commencement speech of my own and I was absolutely terrified,” Krasinski explained. Not wanting to put anybody else in his shoes, Krasinski added that he tried to create a forum for what he deemed a “commencement conversation.”

The questions ranged from “how do you still follow your dreams when it feels like the world isn’t so supportive of them?” (directed to Spielberg) to “think about a time in your life that felt like a low point at the moment, but actually changed everything” (pitched to Winfrey).

“Dreams are a great test because a dream is going to test your resolve,” Spielberg said. “A real dream is something that not only hangs onto you, but you hang onto it. It will power you through every obstacle that people and the environment will throw against you.”

Citing the health crisis that has upended society, Spielberg added a note of optimism for the future. “One of the things this moment is teaching us is that truly anything is possible. It will be imagination and innovation that gets us all to the other side,” he said. “I know this is the time of huge loss, but it’s also a chance to dream big about our futures together, and your generation has something important to say about making that a better future for all of us.”

Winfrey recalled when a Baltimore television station demoted her from her position as a news anchor in the late 1970s, a shift that forced Winfrey to become a talk-show host. “The day I did my first talk show, I felt like I had come home to myself,” she said. “I believe that failure is an opportunity to move yourself in a different direction. It gets better because you’ve learned the lessons from the first time.”

Krasinski has been hosting Some Good News for six weeks thus far, and has landed a surfeit of bold-faced names to participate in his series. Previously, Steve Carell, the original cast of Hamilton, Martha Stewart, Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz, and Brad Pitt have appeared to spread and highlight positive news during the coronavirus pandemic. On Sunday, in addition to the commencement speakers, Krasinski featured both Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in segments.
