‘Fatale’ Trailer Teaser Sees Hilary Swank & Michael Ealy Caught up in Sexy Shenanigans

Lionsgate has released the trailer teaser for Fatale starring Hilary Swank and Michael Ealy. Swank is poised for a big 2020 already with The Hunt coming in March. Swank is looking to keep the good times going into the summer with Fatale, where she takes on the classic femme fatale role in what looks to be an adult thriller in the style of Fatal Attraction or Obsessed.

The Fatale teaser is brief but previews what looks to be a stylish, sexy movie hearkening back to the “woman from hell” adult thrillers of days gone by. The neon-tinged teaser shows us how one illicit night for Swank and Ealy’s characters move from the dancefloor of a club to the bedroom. Swank’s character looks inviting as she coos, “Come stay and play,” while Ealy looks pretty darn nervous about the night spent with this woman coming back to hurt him. We get an even better idea of the movie thanks to Lionsgate’s helpful synopsis:

“In this suspenseful and provocative psychological thriller, a successful sports agent, Darren (Ealy), watches his perfect life slowly disappear when he becomes entangled in a police investigation led by a discredited, disgraced, and determined detective (Swank) with whom he had a wild one night stand.”

Fatale hits theaters on June 19. For more, check out our most anticipated movies of 2020.

Netflix: Meet the narrators of Explained season 2 – J.K. Simmons, Hilary Swank, Lakeith Stanfield

Explained is back on Netflix for a second season but which famous voices can we hear narrating this season’s episodes?

Despite the vast majority of its content arriving in the form of big-budget drama series, Netflix knows that to keep viewers hooked, it has to offer more.

As a result, in the past few years, we’ve seen a sharp increase in the number of shows that break the pattern that Netflix had been at risk of falling into.

One such show is the documentary series Explained which recently returned for a second season.

What is Explained?

Explained is a docu-series made in collaboration with Vox. It takes audiences through various events, entities and phenomena that either affects humanity today or could do so in the years to come.

We’ve seen everything from the future of meat, tattoos, cryptocurrency and even cricket explained during the series and to keep the show fresh for each episode, a new celebrity voice guides us through the topic of the episode.
Topics covered in season 2

After a surprisingly popular first season, that delved into everything from monogamy and the racial wealth gap to weed and extraterrestrial life, season 2 brings 10 new topics under the microscope.

In season 2, Explained examines cults, billionaires, animal intelligence, athleisure, coding, pirates, the next pandemic, the future of meat, beauty and diamonds.
Meet season 2’s narrators

Each episode is brought to life thanks to the help of a celebrity narrator and just as with season 1, there are some big names on the cast list for season 2.

Episode 1, September 26th – Cults – Lakeith Stanfield

Episode 2, October 3rd – Billionaires – Maggie Siff

Hilary Swank to reprise PS, I Love You role on screen for sequel Postscript

Hilary Swank will reprise the role of Holly Kennedy in Postscript, the sequel to PS, I Love You.

Author Cecelia Ahern revealed the news that the second book in the series will be adapted for the big screen and once again star the Oscar-winning actress.

Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on RTE Radio 1, the best-selling author revealed that Swank had contacted her directly about returning for the role of Holly Kennedy.

“One of the first people to email me when she heard the news was Hilary Swank,” she said.

“She was so excited, she wanted to read the book and said ”I would love to support you in any way, shape or form’. Then she read the book and she said ”I want to make this movie’.”

PS, I Love You was published in 2004 when Cecelia was just 21 and she sold a million copies. The author has now reached sales of over 25 million in 50 countries and penned 12 books.

Postscript picks up with Holly seven years after the death of her husband Gerry. Speaking to the Sunday Independent recently, Cecelia said it was the hardest book she has ever had to write and was initially reluctant to write it.

“When I got the idea I was like ‘I’m still not going to do it’. But the idea wouldn’t go away,” she said.

“It kept growing and growing, and I heard the sentences in my head. And that’s when I know I need to write it. So I secretly wrote the first chapter to myself. Just to see how it was going to go. And I cried my eyes out. It really touched my soul, I was right back to when I wrote P.S. I Love You. I was right back in there.”

She said the process of writing Postscript was ‘intense’ because it brought her back to the time when she wrote PS, I Love You.

“And I think that was why writing Postscript was doubly so, not just because of the subject matter, but because it was so linked to my experience the first time. It kept bringing me back to who I was and how my life was and how things changed.”

PS, I Love You was adapted for the big screen in 2007 starring Swank and Gerard Butler. It was filmed across locations in Ireland.
