Celebrating the series’ success (amassing over 16 million downloads so far), Sky Studios boss Cameron Roach praised Evans for his “unique cinematic vision”.

“We are delighted by the response to Gangs of London and to have brought Gareth Evans’ unique cinematic vision to the small screen for the first time. This epic saga, with family at its heart and visceral action-packed fight sequences has taken audiences on an immersive journey into the underbelly of London’s modern-day criminal underworld,” he said.

“The record-breaking results are testament to Sky’s ongoing commitment to innovation and championing the very best of bold, British drama.”

While Gangs of London is gearing up to become as big as, if not bigger, than rival gang drama Peaky Blinders, Gangs‘ lead Joe Cole has insisted the two shows are actually pretty different.

“It’s contemporary,” Joe told Digital Spy about his latest project. “It’s a writer-director-led show, so there’s a real visceral element to it, and a real cinematic element to the show.

“And it’s an ensemble. It’s a show in a multicultural, cosmopolitan London. There are different characters and different pathways and different journeys. Peaky is a single-character show, really.”

    Gangs of London airs every Thursday at 9pm on Sky Atlantic. All nine episodes are available to stream now on NOW TV.

Marvel Studios Might Rename Falcon And Winter Soldier For Season 2

mm

Published

on

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 crisis, there has been a pause on production for huge Hollywood blockbusters. Chief among them is Falcon and The Winter Soldier. For a lot of us, Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series are absolutely on top of our lists.

The six-episode series will explore the ongoing shenanigans of Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson aka Falcon. And his pal Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes aka the Winter Soldier.

Now it seems like that the series will be a head-turner exploring relevant issues. In a recent Murphy’s Law podcast; Charles Murphy revealed that the two leads will be in a very “different” position by the end of the first season; so much that the series might be called something else entirely.

Grounded Like Captain America: The Winter Soldier

This is what Murphy had to say:

“Coming out of season one, [Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson] are going to have gone through something traumatic and be different,” Murphy explained. “There was definitely at one point a plan for a second season… If they did have season two, it wouldn’t be called The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Season 2, it would be a thematically related thing with a different name.”

It’s very hard to tell just what it all means given how vague it sounds; though we are pretty sure that won’t stop MCU fans from theorizing about it.

We know one thing about the show for sure though; Stever Rogers passed down the shield and the Captain America mantle on to Sam in the final scene of Avengers: Endgame; that certainly seems to be a likely event that will tie into whatever traumatic event that the characters experience at the end of the show.

In any case, the show seems to be grounded in reality and is set to follow the tone of Captain America: The Winter Soldier; and boy, are we excited for whatever is in store for us!

How the Owners of a Beloved Positano Hotel Are Preparing for a Quiet Summer

Down the street, the couple’s 600-square-foot apartment overflows with books on every surface. “We have the habit of passing books to each other,” Antonio says. Their current read, Stalingrad by Vasily Grossman, follows the suffering of Russian families at the end of WW II—for Antonio, it helps to keep their current situation in perspective.

An assortment of family heirlooms and objects collected from travels occupy the tiny living space, where every nook is utilized. “It seemed to be a logical place,” Carla rationalizes on the vessels of various liqueurs and gin that sit snug in a marble fireplace decorated with inlaid stone. An ornamental horse cover, used during tribal ceremonies in Iran, hangs on one wall. An array of semiprecious stone spheres carved by Carla’s father, Lodovico Paravicini, rest on the bookcases, while a small print by Hungarian artist Rita Ackermann leans against the wall.

But perhaps the most awe-inspiring element of the apartment is the ocean view framed by a palo borracho tree, geraniums, and roses. The couple’s recent morning routine includes breakfast on the balcony, sipping Darjeeling tea out of a Fortnum & Mason tea set gifted by a friend while listening to Mia Moretti’s recently curated playlist for Le Sirenuse. This iconic image of the Amalfi coastline attracts roughly 5 million tourists each year. But for the first time in many years, Positano’s summertime will be experienced only by its 4,000 residents. “We live in a beautiful place,” Carla says. “Just watching the view is inspiring. And now you only hear the waves and the birds’ songs. So it is pretty magical.”

Carla’s inspiration is channeled into various business ventures, including her lifestyle brand, Emporio Sirenuse. Her team celebrates a just-launched collaboration with Ancient Greek Sandals as well as an eco-friendly line of “essential pieces” made in Italy, which will be presented with her forthcoming resort collection.
