VARIETY – “There is no god in the Badlands,” states the trailer for the AMC original TV series “Into the Badlands.”
The clip was presented at Comic-Con in San Diego Saturday morning. Cast members who were on hand to introduce the trailer to panel attendees included Daniel Wu, Marton Csokas, Emily Beecham, Aramis Knight and Orla Brady. They were joined by showrunners Alred Gough and Miles Millar as well as exec producers David Dobkin and Stephen Fung.
The martial arts-focused series imagines a dangerous, violent future for America run by seven leaders, each commanding a personal army. Wu stars as a warrior seeking enlightenment accompanied by a young boy named M.K. (Knight). The series is based on the Chinese fable “Journey to the West.”
Gough and Millar also created “Shanghai Noon” “Smallville” and is based on the classic Chinese story “Journey to the West.” It stands as another example of TV’s martial arts-focused drama trend.
The series will bow on AMC in November.

ESQUIRE – The joke:
A dad buys a robot that slaps you when you lie and decides to try it out on his son. The dad says, “What did you do this afternoon?”
The son goes, “Just some homework” and the robot slaps him. “Okay, okay. I was watching porn.”
The dad says, “What? I didn’t even know what porn was at your age” and gets a slap.
The man’s wife sighs and says, “He’s definitely your son.” The robot slaps her.
About the jokester:
Sarah Bolger is a butcher’s daughter from a land called Rathfarnham who grew up to become a princess. As the Irish actress says, “I’m a livin’, breathin’ fairy tale. And my mother is a fantastic baker—but if you say candlestick maker, I’m going to beat you with my umbrella.” An interesting weapon of choice. “I have actually done a lot of fencing work for my job, so I guess I could use it as a saber, potentially.” Oh? “I’m giving myself probably way too much credit.” Myth dispelled, then. Next up for the 23-year-old who starred as Princess Mary on The Tudors and Sleeping Beauty on ABC’s Once Upon a Time: playing a lowly student in the high-brow horror film The Lazarus Effect (out February 27). The movie is about a group of scientists who attempt to revive a human—with disastrous success. “Lazarus is pretty much the opposite to playing a princess, because all I wear is leather,” Bolger says. Anything else we should know? “I can beat your ass in poker.” Now that is a fantasy.
Here’s a first look at Sarah in one of her upcoming movies ‘Emelie’. You can find a still in our gallery and a synopsis below. The film will premiere in New York next month at the Tribeca Film Festival.
After their regular babysitter Maggie can’t make it, the Thompson family turns to her friend Anna to supervise their children while the parents go out to celebrate their anniversary. At first Anna seems like a dream come true to the kids, allowing them to eat extra cookies and play with things that are usually off-limits, but as her behavior becomes increasingly odd, the kids soon find out that her intentions are dark and twisted, and she is not who she seems to be.
