Godzilla vs Kong
Kong bears witness to the hand of God(zilla) in a new Japanese trailer.

Legends of Tomorrow
Dominic Purcell stated he plans to leave Legends of Tomorrow after its recently-announced seventh year on television — if indeed the series is renewed for an eighth season.
I’ll give ya 1 more/stay honorable to my contract. #season7…. thanks to @warnerbrostv @dccomics @cw_legendsoftomorrow. It’s not lost on me how fortunate I am in a world full of turmoil and tragedy/nor the unfairness of life; that I prevail while others struggle. ????……. ps to celebrities/ rich people the “well off”. We don’t wanna see how awesome your life is on social it’s not the time nor the place at present. Get a clue.
Deadline reports Lana Condor will star in and executive produce Boo, Bitch — an eight-episode, live-action limited series at Netflix from Erin Ehrlich and Lauren Iungerich. The story follows a high school senior (Condor), “who’s lived her life safely under the radar, seizes the opportunity to change her narrative and start living an epic life, only to find out the next morning…she’s a motherf*%king ghost!”
Mira Sorvino will join Courtney Cox, Greg Kinnear, and Merrin Dungey in the cast of Shining Vale, an upcoming half-hour horror comedy “about a dysfunctional family that moves from the city to a small town into a house in which terrible atrocities have taken place. But no one seems to notice except for Pat (Cox), the mum, who’s convinced she’s either depressed or possessed — turns out, the symptoms are exactly the same. Everyone has their demons — but are Pat’s real? Or is this the portrait of a typical family torn apart by mental illness?” Sorvino is said to play Rosemary, “who is either Pat’s alter ego, a split personality, her id, her muse, or a demon trying to possess her.” [Deadline]
Clarice takes on a fringe militia group in Tennessee in the synopsis for her second episode, “Ghosts of Highway 20.”
Clarice Starling and the VICAP team are deployed to Tennessee where the FBI is laying siege against a fringe militia group called “The Statesmen,” on CLARICE.
