Screencaptures from the fourth and final episode of “Catherine the Great” have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to Jess.

Following a declaration of war by the Ottomans, Catherine makes a weary Potemkin supreme commander of the armed forces as he’s forced to fight once more for Catherine and Russia. An embittered Alexei and Paul plot to bring down the Empress by exploiting her new lover, the vain and power-hungry Platon Zubov. Catherine and Potemkin’s failure to see eye-to-eye on how to respond to a joint ultimatum by Britain and Germany threatens the heart of their relationship. As her reign draws to an end, Catherine becomes increasingly paranoid and despotic, handing greater power to Zubov and setting out to change the line of succession.

The release of Universal Pictures’ ninth Fast and Furious film were postponed on Thursday as Hollywood scrambled to adjust to the worldwide spread of coronavirus. F9 was scheduled to debut May 22. Its release was delayed by nearly a year to April 2, 2021. Mulan and F9 were expected to rank among the biggest box-office hits in the coming months but were among several disruptions to global entertainment caused by coronavirus. The virus has closed movie theaters in China, Italy and many other nations, while a ban on travel from Europe to the United States announced by President Donald Trump on Wednesday is seen likely to curtail red carpets and other promotional events for movies and stars. US movie theaters remained open as of Thursday. But an industry source said operators may close larger theaters in some areas depending on advice from local authorities. Movie theaters were exempted, but even if they stay open, their schedules would have to be rearranged.

Helen Mirren’s latest film “The Good Liar” has been released through digital retailers on January 21 and on Blu-ray Disc and DVD February 04, 2020. The thriller didn’t make much of an impact when it released theaters last November. While it’s not based on masterpiece material and although everything I could tell about the story would be a spoiler (there’s one good liar in the story, but who is it? There’s a 50/50 chance, you do the math), we shouldn’t undervalue the fact that Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen have never collaborated on a film project before, and director Bill Conden gives them two meaty characters to sink their teeth into. Over 1.600 screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery (with severe spoilers ahead), once again with many thanks to Mouza. Enjoy the updates.

I’ve been catching up with Helen’s projects from 2019 that haven’t been screencapped – and with many thanks to the great Mouza, I have not one but two fantastic updates for today. First up is “Anna”, Luc Besson’s KGB assassin thriller that was released last Summer and stayed completely under the radar, most certainly due to the allegations against its director. The film certainly didn’t deserve it. While you have to look past some incredible goofs (USB drives and Windows laptops in the early ’90s?!) I thoroughly enjoyed this film for what it is – popcorn entertainment. It also boasts one of Helen’s funnier characters of late, as Anna’s frosty superior Olga. There’ll always be films about sexy assassins, probably as long as Besson is making movies, but the real stretch would be to give Mirren’s Olga a franchise. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray, including the making of, deleted scenes and an interview with Helen, have been added to the photo gallery.

Screencaptures from the third episode of “Catherine the Great” have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to Jess.

Eighteen months into their romantic relationship, Catherine and Potemkin experience difficulties as Potemkin longs for adventure and Catherine is drawn to her handsome secretary, Peter Zavadovsky. Potemkin’s attempts to convince Catherine to expand southwards and take Crimea put him in direct opposition to Minister Panin, whose cautious foreign policy favors an alliance with Germany. In the wake of an unexpected tragedy, Catherine reveals the brutal truth about Natalia to her son Paul and takes a special interest in her new grandson, causing Paul to turn decisively against his mother. After coming to an arrangement to preserve their deep political and spiritual connection, Catherine and Potemkin look ahead towards their shared dream of Russia’s future.
