Joel Edgerton is back and starring in the TV Adaptation of DARK MATTER.
Hailed as one of the best sci-fi novels of the decade, “Dark Matter” is a story about the road not taken. The series will follow Jason Dessen, (played by Edgerton) a physicist, professor, and family man who – one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago – is abducted into an alternate version of his life. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the multiverse of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of mind-bending realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself.
The Sci-Fi Series will stream on Apple TV+. More to come.

Kevin Bacon. The veteran actor was amazing today at the Press Conference for Black Mass, quite literally stopping for every single Fan in-waiting. There’s a reason why he’s adored and we saw it today.
Dakota Johnson already has been catapulted to stardom in a big way starring in the Film Adaptations of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, but Black Mass is what will solidify her standing as a serious Actress. She was wonderful today stopping for Fans. A huge Fan of hers, I even slipped myself in for a Selfie amidst the commotion!
And of course, who doesn’t love Johnny Depp? After a late arrival, he delivered his promised and went around the lined circle of Friends, stopping for Autographs as security cautiously tossed any clipboards thrust towards his face. The cheers were deafening for the King of Cinema and the reviews are fantastic for his performance as gangster Whitey Bulger in Black Mass.
Joan Allen is fantastic in Thriller, ROOM which premieres Tuesday night TIFF ’15. Here she is at a Press Conference earlier for the Film. Film star Brie Larson unfortunately has been v. private this entire trip not interacting at all with fans. What gives?
