FANS of The Walking Dead will soon be glued to their screens after Netflix released the trailer of new zombie apocalypse series Black Summer. Only the dramatic Syfy show is braced to be even scarier, more chaotic and hair-raising than the zombie favourite. American actress Jaime King plays Rose, a mum who gets separated from her daughter as the zombies begin to take over. Along with a group of other survivors, they head into the unknown in search of her daughter where terrifying dangers hide just around the corner. Ruthless decisions and sacrifices at the hands of the zombies must be made in order for Rose to see her daughter again. While The Walking Dead tells the story of a world during the zombie apocalypse, Black Summer differs as it begins with the outbreak. The show – which is a prequel to Syfy’s recently cancelled Z Nation – gives the impression of the unknown and frenzy as the country descends into mass panic. Jodi Binstock, one of the producers of Black … [Read more...] about Netflix zombie series Black Summer is coming soon – and it looks like it’ll be even more terrifying than The Walking Dead

Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron's semi-autobiographical Roma, widely tipped to win Best Picture, was beaten by race-relations drama Green Book, but Cuaron did win Best Director. The biggest upset of the night was Olivia Colman (The Favourite) beating bookies' favourite Glenn Close (The Wife) in the Best Actress category. Colman, who impressed critics with her idiosyncratic performance as Queen Anne in the period drama, gave an endearingly … [Read more...] about Oscars 2019: Olivia Colman wins Best Actress for The Favourite, plus latest news

THE Brexit backstop is one of the most controversial issues in negotiations with the EU, threatening to derail the whole process. Here's our guide to the plan and what it means for Northern Ireland and its border with the Republic of Ireland. What is the Brexit backstop? The backstop plan is essentially a safety net if there is no Brexit trade deal. The backstop will see Britain remain in the customs union for as long as necessary until an alternative way of keeping the border open is found. Mrs May wants the UK to have the right to end the backstop at will - but the EU has warned that would render the mechanism pointless. It would ensure that no "tariffs, quotas, rules of origin or customs processes" would be applied to UK-EU trade. At the same time the UK would be able to strike free trade agreements with other countries. On November 5, the Telegraph reported that Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab demanded the right to pull Britain out of the EU’s Irish backstop after just … [Read more...] about What’s the Brexit backstop plan, when could the option be activated and what would it mean for the Irish border?
Inflamed by Cold War rivalries, and backed by a hefty federal budget, the Nasa team drove relentlessly towards the lofty goal of a manned Moon landing, but in First Man it becomes evident that they often took shortcuts and were making it up as they went along. They had no right to succeed in getting Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on to the lunar surface as early as 1969, but that success would come at a cost. Ryan Gosling plays Armstrong, whose coolness in a crisis marks him out as the best of the Nasa pilots. Armstrong signed up with Nasa in 1962 and quickly joined the elite who would fly the early Apollo missions. But doing so was a risky business: two years before the Moon mission, three of Armstrong's colleagues were killed by an explosion in a pre-launch test. In First Man, the craft that the astronauts board look like tinfoil sculptures held together with glue, and do not inspire confidence. But after a close shave himself, Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins blasted off … [Read more...] about Shooting for the stars: the best films about outer space
