Link Tank: Fargo Season 5 Has Its Leads
The cast of Fargo season 5 has been confirmed, The Hungers Game prequel was teased, The Sandman trailer is here, and more in Link Tank!
Fresh off the success of Top Gun: Maverick, Jon Hamm has been cast as one of the leads in the fifth season of Fargo.
“Across Mad Men’s seven seasons, Jon Hamm took us inside the mind of Donald Draper, the himbo über-mensch whose furrowed ‘that’s what the money’s for’ brow taught us about how to succeed in business by stealing someone’s identity. Draper’s journey through the 1960s showed viewers a transitional moment for a nation only beginning a love affair with advertising, a business that requires no product. According to the show, advertising only requires a few stiff drinks, a couple of naps, and a phrase like ‘Well done.’ to pitch to the burnt-beef lobby. But we digress.”
The Morbius memes have finally reached Morbius himself, with star Jared Leto acknowledging them in a funny video.
“It has finally happened: Jared Leto is getting in on the ‘Morbin’ time’ meme that has been sweeping the internet. Spider-Man-adjacent movie Morbius first premiered on April 1, 2022, and received largely negative reviews from critics. The film, which stars Leto as Dr. Michael Morbius, follows what happens when the doctor splices his genes with those of a vampire bat to cure his rare blood disease. While he does succeed in curing himself, he also gives himself superhuman powers and a thirst for human blood.”
The first trailer for Netflix’s The Sandman brings the epic graphic novel to life.
“Netflix’s Geeked Week is here and with it a deeper look at The Sandman, the streamer’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s moody goth comic series published by DC. The Sandman has long been due for a screen adaptation but for one reason or another didn’t come to fruition until development for this take took root at Netflix with Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer, and showrunner Allan Heinberg.”
Travel back to the world of The Hunger Games in the first teaser for the new prequel subtitled The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.
“The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes takes audiences back to The Hunger Games with the release of its first teaser trailer. The prequel gives fans a first look at the young Coriolanus Snow, diving deeper into his origin story. The plot follows how Snow eventually becomes the power-hungry president that audiences have seen throughout the franchise. Fans will notice that the film features strikingly similar bird imagery that symbolizes freedom and oppression in the dystopian Hunger Games. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is an adaptation o Suzanne Collins’ prequel novel.”
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl has a major free update that will please the hardcore fans of cartoons.
“Last October, after a surprising amount of hype, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl debuted on all major platforms. While the game was well-received, one big complaint arose from the lack of voiced characters, making the whole thing feel a bit quiet and dead, especially compared to its competition. But now, a new update out today has added voice lines for the entire cast of animated superstars and usable items.”
Even though it’s June, Mariah Carey’s iconic “All I Want For Christmas Is You” finds itself in the new circuit once again, but this time for the wrong reasons.
“In 1989, Andy Stone co-wrote a song called ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ and released it with his band, Vince Vance & The Valiants. It performed reasonably well during holiday seasons throughout the 1990s and even became a favorite of Kelly Clarkson, who recorded her own cover in 2020.”
