Now Apocalypse - Advance Preview - Annihilation



"Between sexual and romantic dating-app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding, premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy is going on - or if he is just smoking too much weed."


"Throwing myself into the void to see what happens."


Let me just start by saying this show isn't for everyone, I'm sure some will enjoy it, especially if they're under the influence. This show seems to answer the question, what if we made HBO's Here and Now but cheaper and even more bizarre? I feel the need to clarify this is related to reptilian aliens so be advised if that's not your thing (whether Ulysses' visions are "real" or not). The one thing I can't complain about is the eye candy, everyone is gorgeous here and you see a lot of most of them.

Avan Jogia ("Tut," "Twisted") as Ulysses, a playboy in a self-destructive path struggling to figure out his life while smoking constantly and having some very weird "visions". Beau Mirchoff ("Awkward," "The Fosters") as Ford, a gorgeous dummy who suddenly seems to have everything handed to him, he's Ulysses best friend though he also fills his daydreams. Kelli Berglund ("Lab Rats," "Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors") is as Carly, a struggling actress with more than a few kinks, Roxane Mesquida (Kaboom, "Gossip Girl") as Severine, a caricature of a scientist with a terrible accent, working on a very special project. Some other familiar faces make an appearance or two, such as Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf, Jane the Virgin), Grace Victoria Cox (Heathers), Jacob Artist (The Arrangement, Quantico), and Kevin Daniels (Atypical, Modern Family).

The acting honestly is atrocious, yes the show is a mockery of itself, but that doesn't mean that constantly being reminded that these are actors playing dumb parts is a good thing. For the most part, every scene seems like the beginning of a bad porno. And even though this is clearly made as a mockery of many things, including the LA scene, this doesn't mean you will find it enjoyable if you hate everything about the context, they still act and sound like an LA cliche. I'm sure some people will hate this and some people will find it hilarious.

"Which of those are you?"


Now Apocalypse premieres Sunday, March 10th, at 9:00 PM ET/PT on STARZ.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
