Watch the Trailer for Netflix's Season 3 of Black Mirror featuring Episode 1 - Nosedive directed by Joe Wright!


More info. Black Mirror's Season 3 - Episode 1 - Nosedive (director: Joe Wright)...

Insecure office worker Lacie (Bryce Dallas Howard) lives in a happy, smiley, status-obsessed nightmare world.
Her old friend Naomi (Alice Eve) is one of society’s elites - and Lacie is desperate to join her.
Inspired by our current obsession with ratings, this heightened satire is set in a world where each person is tagged with a numerical rating that can fluctuate by the minute.
Creator Charlie Brooker says: 'Nosedive' stars Bryce Dallas Howard as Lacie, a woman “who lives her life trying to please everyone so that they will give her a good rating,” but that soon proves soul-destroying. 
Also...


Wright is, of course, a BAFTA-winning film director, having helmed the likes ofAtonement (2007) and Anna Karenina (2012).
"Film and television are different," he said of taking on Black Mirror. "But they're also equally important.
"I really needed this show to wash out the experiences that I'd been having - to freshen up a bit and to remind myself what working on a small budget was like. That was really good for me."
Bryce Dallas Howard plays the lead in 'Nosedive' - socially anxious Lacie - and Wright revealed that he'd been looking to work with the actress since she auditioned for Atonement 10 years previous.
"She was completely wrong for that role, but I loved her and I thought, 'One day I'm going to work with her' and then this script came in and she was the ideal person for it."
'Nosedive' - along with five more new Black Mirror episodes - is now available to stream exclusively on Netflix. [Digital Spy]

The third season of “Salem” dawns with the triumph of the witches’ plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital.

And there’s only one person on earth who can beat the devil — the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley. The only problem is—she’s dead. Or is she? 
“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as Mary Sibley, Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as Captain John Alden, Seth Gabel (“Arrow,” “Fringe”) as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as Mercy Lewis, Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as Isaac Walton, Joe Doyle (“Raw”) as Baron Sebastian Marburg, Oliver Bell (“The Saint”) as Mary’s son and renowned recording-artist Marilyn Manson guest stars as Thomas Dinley.

Jena Malone cameos in Nocturnal Animals starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyleenhaal!


Looks Jena Malone has worked with 5-time Oscar Nominee and Golden Globe Award Winner Amy Adams twice in two films released this year! First, in last March's blockbuster release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (she appeared in The Ultimate Edition, where they had a couple scenes together...with Jena playing a lead scientist Jenet Klyburn of STAR Labs from Superman Comics, who work with Amy's Lois Lane in her investigation of Lex Luthor...that were omitted for the theatrical cut) directed by Zack Snyder (her Sucker Punch film director). Now, I just learned that Jena is also in Amy's upcoming film Nocturnal Animals (which has received a Silver Lion - Grand Jury Prize Award at the recent Venice Film Festival and getting early Oscar Buzz and rave reviews), where Jena cameos as well and plays a character named Sage Ross (I've heard that shehad another  couple scenes with Amy's lead character Susan). I was already looking forward to seeing this film with Amy Adams (one of my favorite actresses) in the lead with a great cast (including Jake Gyleenhaal, Isla Fisher, and Michael Shannon to name a few), but seeing Jena on the cast list on this one too (albeit in a cameo) made me even more excited to see this movie. I enjoyed watching her cameo scenes in the Blu-ray release of BvS (UC) with Amy and I'm curious about their 2 scenes in NA.

Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, and Ellie Bamber (who played Lydia Bennet in last February theatrical release: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies with Lily James) Also star.

Watch the official trailer for Nocturnal Animals (from Focus Features, who distributed Jena's Pride & Prejudice 2005 film) below...
