Dexter: Season 7 – Trailer and Cast Updates!

There is a new cast member joining the Dark Defender in Season 7! Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck) will play Hannah, a woman who helps the LAPD out with a few cold cases, according to Vulture. She will be in a handful of episodes. Supposedly, her character is somewhat suspicious, and Dexter thinks she is withholding something from them. I think this may be a chance for Dexter to get a pretty blonde in his saran wrap web. Or could she be a love interest? Will she have to fight Dexter’s sister Deb for his affection? So many possibilities!

With two seasons left for Dexter to leave its mark on fans, Showtime is really putting a lot of effort into Season 7. According to Uproxx, (BE CAREFUL-SPOILERS THERE) season 7 is supposed to operate as the first part to the series’ end. We already know that Deb knows Dexter is a killer… well… at least that he’s killed once. She walked in on that.

TVGuide has an interview with Dexter Executive Producer Sara Colleton in which she explains how Deb will react to the Season 6 finale. Dexter’s secret is out, and just Deb’s luck, it came out while she was coming to terms with being IN LOVE with him. Colleton said:

If the series-long quest for Dexter was to finally have someone who really knows him — well, be careful what you wish for because Deb now knows everything and that’s a game-changer.

In regards to Deb seeing Dexter kill Travis, TV Guide asked Colleton if Deb will learn everything this season.

Yeah. Obviously this whole season we’re going to have great fun playing with every permutation that can be played between Debra and Dexter in their relationship now that this information has come out. She was on her way to the church at the end of the last season because she had come to realize that she not only loved her foster-brother Dexter but she is in love with him. So now what does she do?

For the whole interview, check out the TVGuide website.

Dexter returns to Showtime on September 30th.

Grizzly Review: Killer Elite

Last night I saw the newest Statham movie, and I have to say I was surprised. Not at all what I was expecting. In the trailer (which we talked about in June) we heard ’80s rock and got lots of punching and shooting and all around violent types of imagery. So naturally I expected your general type of Statham movie. However, we were rewarded with something even better (Well, depending on your mood), a real movie with an actual plot.

Taking place in 1980, Killer Elite revolves around the desired redemption of the disgraced Sheikh Amr. For Amr to gain said redemption and lift his exile to return home, the men who murdered his 3 sons must confess and be killed themselves. That seems straight forward enough, but where the twist comes in, and what seemed to confuse others in the audience, was just how exactly Jason Statham gets sucked into this vendetta. And as it turns out, it’s all a result of multiple betrayals, as well as his own loyalty.

From the trailer it looks like a movie full of Statham vs. Owen, but in truth they are little more than pawns, neither really knowing the real reason they are there. And that reason is something I don’t really want to give away, because I’m gonna go ahead and recommend  you see this movie, so I don’t want to ruin anything. I can say this though – the trailer is not the most accurate representation of a movie that I’ve seen.

The vague overview: De Niro takes the job from the Sheikh blindly, and then upon learning further details tries to back out. This doesn’t go over well with the powers that be, so old Bobby D is held captive. This forces his old friend (the Stath) to end his freshly begun retirement, and complete the job in exchange for De Niro’s release. Statham puts together a team and proceeds to hunt down the men responsible – all Ex-SAS officers that were under orders at the time of their crimes.

Enter Clive Owen, an ex-SAS soldier in his own right, acting out on the behalf of ‘The Feathermen’, a much older group of retired SAS. He’s looking to stop Statham, and in the background is all sorts of politicking our principles don’t know about.

Overall I found the movie quite enjoyable, though if I had to nitpick there is one thing that bugged me, which was the camera work during the fight scenes. So of Director Gary McKendry I might ask that next time – pan out. The super fast extreme closeup angles during the  action scenes make it hard to see the action. But that’s really about it. I liked the movie more than expected. DeNiro had a scene so badass the audience cheered, ‘Mr. MFWIC’ – [Mother F–ker Whats In Charge] was amusing, and Dominic Purcell‘s mustache was too awesome to criticize. I went to see a mindless action movie and instead got an action movie that actually stimulated the brain as well…

I’ll give it a 4/5 Bears. Booyah.

Also, for the Chuck fans out there, I should mention that Statham’s girl is played by Yvonne Strahovski
