This announcement couldn’t have been more timely with today’s inauguration! While we’re waiting on the return of our favourite series, here’s a quick teaser announcing the upcoming streaming date for the fifth season of HOUSE OF CARDS.
One nation. Underwood. House of Cards returns Tuesday, May 30, ,2017 on Netflix.
“We had a future until you started destroying it.”.
This new minute-long Trailer for HOUSE OF CARDS Season Four is gutt-wrenching. Do yourselves a favour and give it a glance. We’ve been ready for quite some time, Frank and Claire. And yes, that is Joel Kinnaman you see!
Netflix Canada stream HOUSE OF CARDS Season 4 Friday, March 4, 2016.
The day finally has come and indeed it is HOUSE OF CARDS Day today! We know that you hate Spoilers but without going into too much detail, we had the pleasure of checking-out the first few episodes so far in Season 3 of Netflix‘s prized Series! The Season starts off with President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) now in office and we witness his battle for support for his America Works Campaign, which seeks to place 10 million Americans in employment. “You are entitled to nothing”, he tells America regarding the sense of entitlement Americans have to a cushy life of a post-retirement safety net. We also witness First LadyClaire‘s (Robin Wright) bid to become an Ambassador to the United Nations which certainly doesn’t come without a hitch. Much detail also is given to the comeback of Doug Stamper (played wonderfully by Michael Kelly), whom after a catastrophe, is battling his way back to recovery and Frank‘s side as his Confidant.
Although admittedly the Season is starting off a bit slower than previous, our attentions are directed to process and detail and we have the feeling something big and bad is brewing. And we can’t wait to find out what.
We chat recently with Star Molly Parker who plays Jacqueline Sharpe (whom certainly is scheming something deliciously bad), and she’s absolutely right. This Season is v. much about the unbreakable marriage between Frank and Claire. More on that here.
Netflix Canada streams Season 3 of HOUSE OF CARDS, now available! Happy streaming this weekend!
In 24 years, British Columbia-born Actress Molly Parker has established herself somewhat of a National Treasure. Her work in Independent Films like Kissed and Center of the World brought her wide acclaim north and south of the Border. She would go on to garner recognition for her phenomenal work in TV Series like Deadwood, Dexter, The Firm and more recently, House of Cards. Parker returns to Toronto for Canadian Stage‘s Production of HARPER REGAN, by Simon Stephens.
One Autumn evening, after learning of her Father’s impending death, Harper Regan walks away from her home, her Husband, her Daughter, and keeps going. She tells no one where she’s going or whether she’s coming back. She’s put everything she’s ever worked for at risk. Her journey takes her to the very borderlines of the relationship between eros and thanatos, sex and death.
We had the pleasure of chatting with Parker just before she prepped for a day of rehearsal. Bluma Appel Theatre will host for the first time ever in Canada a Play by Stephens. “It’s definitely not a return to the stage for me”, says the Actress whose piercing blue eyes both are expressive and pensive. It may have been over 18 years since she’s appeared on-stage, but she considers herself more a TV Actress now by way of a whopping 40 Indie Films made over a span of ten years.
I ask Parker what drew her most to Harper Regan. “She’s a Woman torn between Family and herself, a Wife and a Mother”, she tells me. “She’s left as Provider for her Family after some trauma takes place. With her Father dying, she can’t leave her job without losing her job. She goes anyway, even though her Father dies before she gets there.”. “Harper meets some odd people whom affect her. It really is about a lost weekend or a mini-Odyssean journey in some way. She’s an average, unremarkable Woman – every Woman in a way. She does something extraordinary and it’s the extraordinary actions of ordinary people that has me interested.”. Parker adds that although she is clear what is required to become Harper, there is something still so mysterious about her. “I really don’t know who she is.”. “The Play is funny, sweet, moving and so well-written. It operates on a deeper level that had me thinking for days”, she comments. “Hopefully we can make a version of that.”.
On some of her more complex and unconventional career choices, she is full of gratitude for the opportunities she’s been given. “I know I’ve been really lucky to be offered really challenging roles”, admits Parker. “I’m attracted a little bit to roles that are scary to me, however, it is easy to look back now and say ‘I understand what I was doing back then’, when at time I only knew what I liked and didn’t like.”.
The more I chat with Parker, watching her dig deep with reflective , thoughtful pauses, the more I realize why it is that her career continues to thrive – she lives and breathes pure artistry. “I don’t care about being likable and I’m not in it to be liked”, she reveals. “I myself want to be presented with somebody who speaks to my Humanity. I want to be entertained and come away feeling ‘Oh, that is a Woman I’d be interested in talking to. That is more interesting to me.”.
I couldn’t let our Chat end without asking about the greatest Television Series currently in existence. “I love doing House of Cards“, she tells me. “It’s like all the elements are great. The writing is terrific and challenging. We have the best Crew and I love that Character (Jacqueline Sharp). She is this combination – she’s strong, a warrior, sexual, ambitious, ruthless, afraid and vulnerable.”. Although she is tight-lipped about any more details of upcoming Season Three, she did indicate she is drawn much to a new male Character. “In many ways, this Show is about a marriage and this Season continues to explore it in-depth.”.
HARPER REGAN plays at the Bluma Appel Theatre from March 1 – 22, 2015. More on Tickets here.
I cannot handle the intensity! Hot off Kevin Spacey’s Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama win at the Golden Globes, the new Season 3 Trailer for Netflix‘s HOUSE OF CARDS has just surfaced and we have only one question after seeing it. Is it February 27th yet?
The 72nd qnnual GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS took place tonight at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles and taking top honours on an evening where multiple Films shared the spotlight, was Boyhood. The Richard Linklater Movie filmed over 12 years, won for Motion Picture Drama, Best Director and also Best Supporting Actress (Patricia Arquette).
The Grand Budapest Hotel was victorious for Motion Picture Comedy/Musical and Director/Writer Wes Anderson for the former drew big laughs from the Audience individually thanking members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
After leading the way with seven nominations coming in, BIRDMAN also would perform strongly. Mexican Visionary Alejandro González Iñárritu would accept the Award for Best Screenplay, apologizing humbly repeatedly for hisEnglish. Meanwhile, Michael Keaton would make one of the biggest Comebacks witnessed in Hollywood after a reaching great success in the early ’90s with the Batman Franchise, going-on to win Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for his performance as troubled Actor Riggan Thomson.
Billy Bob Thorton who won for Best Actor in a TV Mini-Series or Movie for FARGO, and would go on to make the loudest statement tonight accepting this Golden Globe with a simply “Thank You!”, noting that he wanted to stay out of trouble after arriving on-stage stating he didn’t even get a chance to celebrate. Remember that time he opened his mouth here in Toronto and got in major trouble? Let’s take a walk down Memory Lane here.
Kevin Spacey also was acting naughty, making reference to his Frank Underwood on Netflix‘s House of Cards’ initials during a pre-broadcast Red Carpet Special and while accepting his Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series Drama, he once again dropped an “F Bomb” which fortunately was censored in-time.
Newcomer Gina Rodriguez certainly has stamped her place among Hollywood’s Elite winning Best Actress in a Comedy, TV Series for her work on adapted Telenovela, Jane the Virgin. The Series airs on The CW in the U.S. and streams in Canada on Shomi.
Don Cheadle and Julianna Margulies were assigned the task of presenting the Cecil B. DeMille Award this year to recently-wed George Clooney. Show-stealing on the Red Carpet with his Wife Amal in Dior, he took a moment to thank his one true love on the Podium. “I’ve had a pretty good year”, he reflects. “It’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love – even better if you’ve been waiting your whole life – when your life has been 53 years. Amal whatever alchemy it was that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your Husband.”.
Among tonight’s winning looks on the Red Carpet were an über-glam Jessica Chastain, who won high scores for her low-plunging, lamé Versace Dress – perhaps a taste of the looks to come as she portrays Marilyn Monroe in long-developing Biopic, Blonde. Jennifer Lopez turned heads in a Zuhair Murad Dress Dress reminiscent of her famous Versace Grammy number with its low plunge also which drew an awkward moment as she was presenting with Jeremy Renner who pointed-out her “golden globes”. Taylor Schilling, star of Netflix‘s Orange is the New Black also stunned in a red Ralph Lauren Dress – classic and understated. Amy Adams also was a vision in purple, going-on eventually to win Best Actress in Comedy or Musical for Big Eyes. Julianne Moore despite getting some mixed reaction, wins big points from us for her sparkly Givenchy number, dazzling on-stage as she accepted Best Actress in a Drama for Still Alice.
Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey – reuniting for a third time and claiming this would be their last – once again were sophisticated and witty, their jokes ranging from side-by-side comparisons between Filmmakers and Actors they’d rather bed to Nominee Emma Stone being compared to a “creepy” Margaret Keane painting. Even Meryl Streep sent her compliments as she presented the Award for Best Drama.
