Happy 4th Of July 2019

wallpaper_111_2484x2000_smallbarbieTo Kathryn and all KM UK’s friends in the US, we say Happy 4th of July.

Congratulations to the USA on reaching another 4th of July.  I hear you having a parade this year.  Sounds like lots of fun.  Can’t believe you didn’t think of doing that at some point before in the last 243 years.  Perhaps throw in a firework or two.  But don’t actually throw them, that’s dangerous.  Keep your pets indoors too, they can get scared by all the noise.

The UK is rapidly, and by rapidly I mean mind-numbingly slowly, heading towards it own independence day.  Appropriately enough, we’re trying to make it the 31st of October, aka Halloween.  Wish us luck.  Many of would probably try and stay with you guys instead but we understand conditions are a bit cramped at the moment.

smallbarbie‘s image always forms the centrepiece of our 4th of July post.  It is just one, albeit a particular find example of, fan art created by our viewers especially for this site.  Find it and many, many other in our Fan Art Gallery. If you would like to add an image please contact me.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – June 2019

danny_pino_002_430x180.jpgThings are heating up in the UK and they haven’t exactly gone cold in the showbiz news front either.  KM UK’s CCCC-up for June 2019 is a busy one for members of the Cold Case cast that aren’t Kathryn.

Mayans M.C. is coming back.  The spin-off from Sons Of Anarchy returns to the FX network airways on September the 3rd (a Tuesday), which is now less than 10 weeks away.  Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC) is set to reprise his role of Miguel Galindo.  Those attending the San Diego Comic-Con in a month’s time will be able to see a sneak peak of season two on the Sunday (21st July) afternoon.

Earlier this year Danny did a guest starring appearance (covered in December’s CCCC-up) in a couple of episodes of the Netflix show One Day At A Time.  Not long after that the series cancellation was announced.  The events were unrelated I’m sure.  In what is being described as the first case ever of a show leaving a streaming service and moving to cable television, ODAAT has been picked up by Pop TV.  The cable network has ordered a fourth season to air next year.  Netflix will still host seasons 1 to 3 but Pop will also be able to broadcast them.  In an interesting twist Pop TV is owned by the large CBS network.  This means that ODAAT season 4 will likely get a network TV showing later next year.  At this stage there is no news on whether Danny’s Tito will make a return.  We’ll take it one day at…

July 2017.  Remember then?  That was when the CCCC-up first made mention of Ad Astra.  No not a car commercial (I must have made that “joke” before!), but a sci-fi movie starring Brad Pitt (Moneyball), Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black), Liv Tyler (Armageddon), Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games), Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and John Finn (John Stillman in CC).  The wheels of Hollywood often turn slowly.  Two trailers for the film have been released this past month see them on YouTube HERE and HERE.  John features in both.  He’s the first voice you hear in the second clip.

Speaking of voices, the Roger Ailes bio-series The Loudest Voice is due to start today (30th June) on the Showtime network.  If the info is correct John features in the first episode.

We’ve got this far without mentioning Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC).  That ends now.

In movie news Tracie is starring in a new rom-com called Back To Lyla.  The plot involves a young man setting out to find his old friends after receiving a terminal diagnosis.  As Tracie’s character is titled Dr Nolan I’m tempted to say her role is relatively small and in the first part of the film.  Hey, I can put 2 and 2 together and come up with approximately 4.  Emma Kenney (Shameless) and Hassie Harrison (Tacoma FD) star in the director America Young (Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures) directed and Guillermo Noriega (Confetti) written movie.  The project only finished filming a few weeks ago so we have no news yet on a release date.

KM UK first referenced Straight Up back in October of last year.  It’s a movie in which Tracie dons the stethoscope and white coat again, this time as Dr Larson.  James Sweeney gets all selfish by writing, directing and starring in this rom-com with Katie Findlay (The Carrie Diaries) with playing the other half of the love line (it’s not a triangle).  The twist being that Todd is gay.  The film had its premiere last week at the Frameline Festival, which is an LGBTQ+ film festival, held in San Francisco.  It will be out Outfest in July.  No signs of a wider release date at this time.

Just occasionally we step outside the usual additional cast to look at some other key people connect with Cold Case.  One of them is Veena Sud, producer and writer on the show, who went on to do the same things on The Killing.  Veena has joined something called Quibi, a mobile video service backed by Jeff Katzenberg (DreamWorks co-founder), that has already signed-up such talents as Steven Spielberg (Jaws), Steven Soderbergh (Traffic), Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect), Donal Logue (Gotham), Chrissy Teigen (Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation), Don Cheadle (House Of Lies), Emily Mortimer (Mary Poppins Returns), and Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) to make on projects.

Reverie S01E05 – Altum Somnum Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e05_1080p_213We don’t often blow our own trumpet here on KM UK but this has to be one the best updates we’ve had.

Episode 5 of Reverie, ‘Altum Somnum’ (which means ‘deep sleep’), brought us a significant amount of Kathryn’s Monica Shaw.  There’s been a bombing (you may recognise the building they use from a certain other show popular around these parts) and Monica wants to use the mind-entering VR tech to question a possible witness to the events who is in a coma (hence ‘deep sleep’).  During this process Monica starts to see the others as a team that can achieve much as a group, and not just individuals good at specific things.

As part of the KM UK Summer Of HD, not only do we have some, if I say so myself, some very high quality new HD (1080p) screencaps, but also vastly bigger versions of all five promo photos issued for this episode.  We’re talking quadruple the pixel count in most cases!  Rather than replace the existing photos the new ones are added as extras so you can still choose the smaller ones if that’s easier.

Over 200 new HD (1080p) screencaps are HERE and the promo photos are HERE in the KM UK Gallery.

Resurrecting The Champ On US Blu-ray

rtc_314A quick reminder.

Two weeks later than we originally thought/reported, tomorrow (25th June) is the day that Resurrecting The Champ will be be released on Blu-ray.  This is in the US market.

You’d think it is was out for the count by now but it has come out punching.  See what I did there?  Getting all clever with the boxing references.

You can pick up a copy of the Rod Lurie’s movie starring Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Hartnett, Alan Alda, Teri Hatcher on Amazon US HERE.

Reverie S01E04 – Blue Is The Coldest Color Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e04_1080p_016Hopefully you noticed that last week there was no new entry in KM UK’s Summer Of HD for Reverie‘s 3rd episode.  You did notice, right?

Unfortunately Kathryn wasn’t in ‘No More Mr Nice Guy’, but, as we got to see in ‘Blue Is The Coldest Color’, there is something of Miss Nice Lady in Monica Shaw.

The story in this one was an interesting twist on the normal.  The protagonist is crippled by anxieties and can’t leave his house.  He’s using a stolen Onira Tech (the VR company the show is set around) implant so he can immerse himself in worlds of his own making.  The one highlight of his real life is seeing the little girl and her mother from next door.  They are sort of friends, despite his issues.  Poor guy right?  But he’s using the VR to try and do a good thing to help the little girl, who it turns out needs unobtainable medicine.  The guy isn’t using the tech to escape his own existence but to over come debilitating fears and to help someone else.

How can Sarah Shahi’s Mara and the team not help him?  Even DoD hardcase Monica can see a little way past possible new money making uses for the VR to the good it can do.

As well as the expected new set of full HD (1080p) screencaps from episode 4 of Reverie that are now in the KM UK Gallery, there are also improved sized versions of the two promotional photos (see below). Apart from the limited number, what’s not to like about that?
