Mary Sets Her Sights on Broadway’s ‘Dying City’

In some VERY exciting news, it has been announced that Mary will take on the female lead role in Second Stage’s off-Broadway revival of Christopher Shinn’s 2007 Pulitzer-finalist play Dying City.

Directed by Lila Neugebauer, the production will feature Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kelly and Colin Woodell as Craig and Peter. The compassionate and intimate play is set in a sparse Manhattan apartment, where a young widow receives an unexpected visit from the twin brother of her deceased husband. DYING CITY explores the human fallout of global events, including the Iraq War and the terrorist attacks of 9/11, through the interwoven stories of three unforgettable characters.

DYING CITY will begin previews May 14, 2019 at the Tony Kiser Theater (305 West 43rd Street) and will officially open on June 3, 2019 and run through June 30, 2019.

Tickets for DYING CITY are now on sale. Single tickets are priced $59 – $79 and are available by calling the Second Stage Box Office at 212-246-4422 or visiting 2ST.com. A limited number of $30 Under 30 tickets are available in advance to those ages 30 and under with proper identification.

 

I’m so happy for Mary!! She’s bound to get some amazing reviews and hopefully an award or two once the play is completed!

‘The Parts You Lose’ to Be Released This Summer

In some very exciting news, it has been announced that Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired domestic distribution rights to The Parts You Lose, the Christopher Cantwell thriller starring Aaron Paul, Scoot McNairy, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Danny Murphy. A late summer theatrical release is planned for the movie, which is having its world premiere tonight at the Sun Valley Film Festival.

In the film, Aaron plays a fugitive criminal who forms an unlikely bond with Wesley, a deaf child (Murphy). When authorities close in on the farm he’s chosen to hide out in, Wesley has to decide whom to trust. Mary will play Danny Murphy’s character’s mother, Gayle.

Glad we finally got some news about this film! Hopefully a trailer isn’t too far away now! I will let you all know about a theatrical release once more info is available!

New ‘Love, Death and Robots’ Trailer

With two weeks to go until the premiere of Netflix’s animated anthology series ‘Love, Death & Robots’, the network has released a brand new NSFW trailer which you can view below. Yesterday, I also posted a clip of Mary in one of the upcoming episodes which you can view here. I also added screencaps of Mary from the trailer below which you can see in the gallery.

 

Premiering on March 15, the show comes from Tim Miller and David Fincher and will touch on a variety of topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature, whittled down from hundreds of authors and stories, many of which were discovered by Miller decades ago. Each 5 to 15-minute-long segment was created by different teams of filmmakers from around the world, including animators from Hungary, France, Canada, and Korea among others.

First Look At Mary in ‘Love, Death and Robots’

Nextflix has been counting down the days until the premiere of the upcoming sci-fi adult animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots and in doing so, have been releasing small clips from each of the episodes that’ll soon be streaming beginning on March 15. Earlier this week, they released a short snippet of Mary that featured Topher Grace as her co-star in the scene.

If you recall, the two worked together in the 2012 social experiment ‘The Beauty Inside’. I’ve posted the clip of Mary’s Love, Death & Robots clip below and if you missed the trailer for the upcoming series, you can see it here. Just remember, it is NSFW.

The full roster of shorts will cover a variety of adult topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature. The anthology collection spans the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres and each short has a unique animation style: from traditional 2D to photo-real 3D CGI.

Netflix Releases Trailer for Love, Death & Robots

Netflix has released a redband (NSFW) trailer for the upcoming adult animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots from Tim Miller and David Fincher. The synopsis for the show is as follows:

“The full roster of shorts will cover a variety of adult topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature. The anthology collection spans the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres and each short has a unique animation style: from traditional 2D to photo-real 3D CGI. The creators were assembled for a global calling for best in class animators from all over the world including artists from France, Korea, Hungary, Canada and the US among others. The series draws inspiration from the eclectic and provocative comic book material from the 1970’s that influenced both Miller’s and Fincher’s formative interests in storytelling.”

Executive produced by David Fincher, Tim Miller, Jennifer Miller and Josh Donen, the series brings together world-class animation creators and captivating stories for the first anthology of short animated stories guaranteed to deliver a unique and visceral viewing experience.

The show will premiere on March 15 on the streaming service and stars Topher Grace, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Gary Cole and a huge cast of many other actors and actresses. According to Deadline, the episodes will be between 5-15 minutes long.

New Casting Updates for Birds of Prey; Spin-offs Rumored

Two new actresses have been added to the long list of the Birds of Prey cast. First up is actress Charlene Amoia. Amoia, who played Wendy the Waitress in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, will play Maria Bertinelli, the mother of Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s vigilante the Huntress/Helena Bertinelli and the wife of mafia syndicate gangster Franco Bertinelli.

And according to the imdb cast list, Ella Mika will be playing a ‘young Helena Berinelli’ in the film.

Additionally, it is being rumored that if Birds of Prey does well at the box office, we could potentially see a spinoff of Mary’s character the Huntress.

According to sources close to We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. is developing solo movies for Huntress, Black Canary and Cassandra Cain that could be going into production if Birds of Prey proves a big enough hit at the box office. Additionally, it’s said that Rosie Perez’s character Renee Montoya could be getting the same treatment, too, though this possibility is deemed less likely.

 

This is very exciting news! Can’t wait to see the first trailer for the movie.

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will hit theaters on February 7, 2020.
