First up this week is a return to our screens for Fiona Shaw (Petunia Dursley). She stars in Sky's new film Kindred. It surrounds a young couple who, after finding out they are expecting a child, visit the husband's mother (who is played by Shaw). However, after an unfortunate accident, he dies and leaves his partner in his mother's care. She quickly begins to question her mother-in-law's intentions after finding an unknown substance in her tea. You can watch the trailer below!
Next up is a new role for Freddie Stroma (Cormac McLaggen). He'll take over from Chris Conrad – who left the show due to creative differences – to play Vigilante in DC's Peacemaker. The show is a spin-off of The Suicide Squad, which will be released later this year. Peacemaker will explore the origins of Peacemaker, a character who will be played by John Cena in both the movie and the show. We can't wait to hear more about this show.
Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) has been very busy. He spoke recently about his upcoming film Dr. Bird's Advice for Sad Poets, in which he plays the father of the lead. He described the movie as an "extraordinary, almost surreal, coming-of-age story." It features a boy who asks a pigeon for advice on how to deal with his depression and "doesn't really fit into any box," according to Isaacs. You can watch the full interview below!
The first trailer for Good Sam has also been released. Isaacs features in the show as Dr. Peter Griffins, who wakes up from a coma and must work alongside fellow heart surgeon Sam (played by Sophia Bush) to return to his previous role. We don't have a release date for the show yet, but we do know that it will begin production in the fall. The trailer is below!
Isaacs will also feature in the upcoming Sundance Film Festival. His film Mass will be shown at the festival. The film shows two couples as they come to terms with a recent violent tragedy. Isaacs isn't the only Wizarding World star to feature in the festival; Jude Law, who plays Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts, is also included in the celebrations. The Nest, in which he plays investment adviser Rory, will be shown at the festival as well.
