Nuevo tráiler y posters de la tercera temporada de ‘Killjoys’

19/06/2017

La serie de Syfy, Killjoys ha lanzado un nuevo tráiler junto con una serie de posters para su tercera temporada ante su regreso a finales de mes.

La segunda temporada acabó con Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) haciendo un llamamiento a la guerra para vengar las muertes de Khlyen y Pawter, y con Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) acompañado por Clara (Stephanie Leonidas) siendo incapaz de contarle a Dutch y su hermano D’Avin (Luke Macfarlane) que él mató a Delle Seyah.

La tercera temporada promete seguir la historia de la hija de Khylen en su primer encuentro con Dutch y a Johnny tratando de superar lo que hizo para unirse de nuevo a D’Avin y Dutch para tratar de salvar el mundo.

La tercera temporada de Killjoys se estrena el 30 de junio.

‘Killjoys’ is coming back to SyFy at the end of June

19/06/2017

One of the great aspects of summer for the past two years has been the fact that the SyFy Channel has run that great Canadian space opera, “Killjoys.” This year promises to be no exception, as the show returns for its third season on #June 30. The teaser trailer promises banter violence, intense heat, and unnecessary nudity as our heroes pursue the coolest job in the universe.

The coolest job in the universe

Killjoys” depicts the adventures of three outer space bounty hunters, including two hunky brothers named D’avin and Johnny and the bodacious and lethal Dutch who spend their time reclaiming people, mainly escaped criminals, and lost or stolen objects for various clients in a region of space called the Quad.

On the side, they fight, quip, and blow things up to #Save The World from a shadowy conspiracy. Officially they are supposed to be neutral and not be beholden to any government or political faction, but when evil threatens everything they love, they have a tendency to take sides regardless.

The show is part of the revival of the space opera that the SyFy Channelhas helped to foster. The revival started when the “Stargate” franchise moved from pay cable and expanded into three series and several made for television movies. The reboot of the 1970s classic “Battlestar Galactica” cast what was a light series into a darker atmosphere when the rag-tag fugitive fleet fled from the Cylon Empire. Besides “Killjoys,” Syfy is running “Dark Matter,” another Canadian import, and “The Expanse,” aninterplanetary epic on the scale of “Game of Thrones” based on a popular book series.

What is going to happen in season three?

When we last saw our intrepid heroes, they saved the world but at the cost of the lives of two friends, Pawter (a doctor, and Johnny’s girlfriend), and Khylen, Dutch’s old mentor. Season two ended with Johnny heading out for some payback for Pawter with Clara, a cyborg with a gun arm she calls Alice, and Dutch and D’avin declaring war against the conspiracy that took Khylen’s life, and the lives of almost everyone else as well. However, it looks like Dutch’s clone, Aneela, is hot on their trail. Also slated to return for more fun and action among the stars is Pree, the swishy former overlord and bar owner, Turin, the Killjoys’ boss, and perhaps Fancy Lee, a level five #Killjoy. It looks like it’s time to save the world once again, and Friday nights will be a time to stay home — away from the heat — and watch some television.

5 Reasons The New Killjoys Poster Has Us Pumped For Season 3

16/06/2017

 Returns June 30

Ahead of it’s Season 3 Space premiere on June 30, Killjoys has released some kick-ass new artwork to celebrate the launch. No surprise: it’s awesome. It features intergalactic bounty hunters Dutch, John, and D’avin along with what might prove to be the most formidable nemesis the trio’s ever taken on: Dutch’s double, Aneela.

Here’s why it’s got us psyched for the new season:

1. It looks like a poster for a Star Wars spinoff

Which is a nice coincidence (or a purposeful homage) considering that Killjoys star Hannah John-Kamen had a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (She’ll also be starring alongside Alicia Vikander in 2018’s Tomb Raider reboot.)

2. We can stare at Aneela for as long as we like

There’s been talk about Dutch’s doppleganger since forever but we got only the briefest glimpse at her in Season 2’s ‘How To Kill Friends and Influence People’. This is our first real opportunity to look into the character’s eyes and try to figure out just how evil she is.

3. All three Killjoys, present and accounted for

Despite Johnny’s departure for unknown parts of the Quad and beyond at the end of Season 2, this poster is proof enough that he’ll be rejoining the team in the upcoming episodes.

4. So much green plasma

Johnny, Dutch, and D’avin seem to be standing in a sea of it. Does this mean we’ll get to see D’av dunked in the stuff again? Kidding. But we do want to find out how it’s connected to the fate of the Quad.

5. Lucy!

Our fave talking spaceship is back for another season of sarcasm, insubordination, and saving everyone’s butt whenever things begin to look really bad.

KILLJOYS exclusive artwork revealed in advance of Season 3 premiere Friday June 30.

16/06/2017

In anticipation of the return of Space’s highest-rated original series KILLJOYS, exclusive Season 3 artwork was revealed today. The image features the heroic intergalactic bounty hunters, Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), D’avin (Luke Macfarlane), and Johnny (Aaron Ashmore)  suited for battle, along with their nemesis, Dutch’s Hullen doppelganger, Aneela (John-Kamen) in the green plasma’s reflection.

Season 3 of KILLJOYS returns Fridays, at 8 p.m. ET beginning June 30. Season 1 and 2 are available now on CraveTV.

For access to the first two episodes of Season 3, the KILLJOYS press kit, new images, and more, click here; and to access high resolution images, bios, and episode synopses throughout the season click here.

In the season opener “Boondoggie” (Friday, June 30 at 8 p.m. ET on Space), as war looms over the J Star System, the Quad’s surviving Hullen have gone into hiding, but Dutch and D’avin have a clever plan to draw them out. Far away on the fringes of the J Star System, Johnny begins a desperate hunt of his own for Clara, who is missing in the notorious Rat City. With few clues and less time, John goes deep undercover in the Hackmod (humans with cybernetic implants) world, chasing Clara’s trail with an unlikely new ally.

SUPERHERO ENVY AND THE JOY OF BEING OUT

31/05/2017

Luke_McFarlane
Move over, Deadpool: Luke Macfarlane wouldn’t mind playing a gay, caped crusader
By Nelson Branco

It’s Pride month—and London, Ont., native Luke Macfarlane is proud of himself for managing to be out as an actor in Hollywood and still manage to work steadily for almost a decade. Coming out in an interview with The Globe and Mail in 2008, Macfarlane wasn’t sure at the time of how news of his sexuality would impact his career—especially during that recession-plagued era.

The Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts and Julliard graduate said at the time, “I don’t know what will happen professionally.… That is the fear, but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen because it’s my truth. There is this desire in L.A. to wonder who you are, and what’s been blaring for me for the last three years is how can I be most authentic to myself.”

Macfarlane first caught critics’ attention with his performance in FX’s gritty US army series Over There, which was produced by NYPD Blue/L.A. Law showrunner Steven Bochco and focused on the first tour in Iraq. Then came what was arguably his breakout role in ABC’s drama Brothers & Sisters, where he played popular Scotty Wandell, husband to Kevin Walker (played by Matthew Rhys). Since then, the former singer and songwriter has worked on Canadian series Satisfaction as well as NBC’s The Night Shift and PBS’s Mercy Street.

Today, he’s sporting armour as D’avin Jaqobis on Space’s sci-fi fantasy series Killjoys, which returns for a third season on June 30 at 8 pm. Killjoys is described as a “fast-paced space adventure about a trio of hard-living, party-loving bounty hunters working for the R.A.C. (Recovery and Apprehension Coalition).”

IN caught up with the 37-year-old hunk, who has been romantically linked to actors like Wentworth Miller, to chat about playing a gay superhero one day, whether Pride needs to reinvent itself and why he thinks Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is the world’s moral compass in these uncertain, chaotic times.

For those who haven’t watched Killjoys, what can they expect?
It takes place in an unspecified place and future. The trio of bounty hunters are played by me, Aaron Ashmore and Hannah John-Kamen. It’s an unlikely, future family drama. Aaron plays my brother and my character has a thing for his best friend, played by Hannah. It has a lot of action and comedy.

Why is there such a fascination with sci-fi and superhero content at the moment?
My cynical answer is…especially looking at the film industry today, because there’s a lot of rebooting of old narrative.… I think it’s due to studios being scared that no one will come to see a new story, so they rely on projects with pre-existing fan bases. So many of the ’80s audiences now have young families, so it’s a good time to reintroduce a proven, successful franchise to a new generation via their parent, who also gets an update to watch. One of the reasons I’m really proud of our show is because it’s original material. But my other answer is that I think people need right now to escape to a world they can create in their own imagination, given the state of everything going on today in politics.

Just about every actor and their stepmother has a superhero franchise. Would you be up for sporting some tights in your own superhero film in the future?
Omigod, of course I would. My agent would kill if I didn’t do that. Of course, you need to find the right superhero who matches the deeper aspect of your personality. So who would my superhero be? He’d probably an architecture fanatic…

One who likes dudes? Other than bisexual-leaning Deadpool, we don’t have any gay superheroes on the big screen.
That is so true. But you know what? Things are changing so rapidly so I could see it happening, for sure. I’d be down.

Your body is a machine these days. What did you do with that lovely tall and lean build we all loved? You could definitely fill out a superhero costume today.
[Laughs] Awww… I’ve always been very schizophrenic. I don’t always know what I want to do professionally. On Brothers & Sisters, it was a huge and successful TV series. I loved playing Scotty. That show probably got me the most recognition in my career. When the show was wrapping up, I remember saying, ‘Oh no. I have to move on to something new. I need to reinvent myself. I need to think about the next stage.’ So that’s when I decided to transform my body. When I was doing the Broadway play, The Normal Heart, I was working out all the time. I remember when I was backstage in between shows, the director would say, ‘Luke, you have to stop working out! You look way too healthy to play an HIV patient in the 1980s!’ I did want to do a lot of action and adventure films and TV, so that’s why Killjoys is a perfect fit for me.

What are you doing at the gym?
I train almost every single day. I usually go to the gym before work. I find it makes my day so much easier if I have already worked out. I really enjoy the rowing machine when I’m not doing weights.

How do you deal with being a sex symbol? Some in the industry worry you can’t be an authentic sex symbol and be out. Researching your career, I read a quote from a director who didn’t want to cast you as a gay character because you come off too heterosexual!
First of all, who knows what being a sex symbol is? It just means getting more attention if you look a certain way. As far as identity and how I want to be perceived, I really feel like I just want to be known for my work and that I want to keep working. The perception of being gay or straight, I don’t know, I think we’re in a new era in life where it doesn’t matter as much as it did before, but I could be totally wrong.

You came out in 2008. Had you stayed in the closet, imagine how much more difficult these past nine years would have been. Any advice you would have given yourself back then?
I would have told myself, especially when I was younger, that I should be easier on myself. I remember my first professional TV show and I wasn’t as open with everybody about myself as I could have been. Yes, it was a different time back then, but you always have to give people the autonomy to react in their own way to our own truths.

This year the Toronto Police are banned from marching or displaying any booths at this year’s Pride Toronto celebrations, after a motion from Black Lives Matter–Toronto ‘passed.’ Thoughts?
I won’t be here for Toronto’s Pride. I’m not going to say anything about the issue but I do feel like we have to be inclusive with ideas and people—and those who want to march with our community should be allowed to.

Do you think Pride needs to be reinvented? It’s more relevant
than ever in the US given this current White House administration.

I do think Pride is still relevant. Acts of gathering are still powerful, as we saw with the Women’s March. Pride and Pride parades are two very different things. There has been so much discussion about slacktivism and what we really gain from retweeting/tweeting causes, but I think the act of gathering publicly is still a very profound and powerful experience—as we’re seeing all over the world. The commercialism at Pride? Listen, I remember being at a New York Pride parade and I saw these go-go Altoid boys in red Speedos. I was like, ‘Oh, what does this have to do with Pride? And that’s a straight trainer from Equinox gym on that float!’ But I don’t know…maybe that’s how you get people out these days, with the lure of Speedos.

Do you like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau?
I think he’s a moral compass of the Western world. I can say I’m deeply proud of his commitment to immigrants and refugees. I think he’s important not only to Canada but also to the rest of the world.

Narratively, Brothers & Sisters was kind of ahead of its time, but its ratings weren’t on fire. It aired before streaming services tackled heavier material. While it could have continued a few more seasons, I consider the show a success. Do you think the show’s lifespan was cut too short?
It’s hard to tell. We did have a big cast and we had a lot of big names. It was hard to keep everyone happy. I feel particularly blessed in that role because Matthew and I got along so well. You can tell the writers liked writing for us so we always had a good storyline. I don’t think a lot of the other actors felt that way. I would have loved to have seen Scotty and Kevin go on but others felt we had told all the story we could.

Do you still see Matthew? [Sarcastically] I hear he’s doing pretty badly in his career right now…
[Laughs] No, he’s doing really well. I haven’t seen him in a while but we do exchange texts occasionally.

It must be a good time to be in Canada, as the US seems to be imploding politically.
It’s great. I got here to Toronto a couple of weeks after Christmas, but I’ll be spending the summer in L.A. It’s nice to be here because I have a lot of pride in Canada. I will say Canadians really love talking about Americans, though! I’m constantly being asked what I think about Trump. During the past two years, I’ve been flying down to Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia, to film a PBS series called Merchant Street about the Civil War—which couldn’t be a more American experience—but then I would fly back to Toronto, so I do have one foot in each country. It’s a good balance.

Are you single these days? Not sure if you want to share your romantic status.
Yeah, I’d rather not. I don’t like to talk about my personal life in interviews.

Hard-hitting question time: boxers or briefs? Or a hybrid?
[Laughs] I have to tell you I wear all types of underwear. It depends on the workout of the day.

Killjoys Interview: The 3 Stars Tell Us What’s Next For D’avin, Dutch, And John

31/05/2017

 Returns June 30

During our recent visit to the set of Killjoys, stars Aaron Ashmore (John), Hannah John-Kamen (Dutch), and Luke Macfarlane (D’avin) sat down to offer a sense of where their characters find themselves in Season 3. While they offered several intriguing details about the episodes ahead, all the comments below are spoiler-free—and guaranteed to peak your curiosity about their upcoming adventures.

AARON ASHMORE: One of the interesting things about starting the third season is that there are two storylines. D’avin and Dutch are one storyline, and John is off finding himself, doing some things. It’s sort of different from the other two seasons, where we’re always together. There’s a little bit of branching out, which I think is sort of different and will allow all of us to do some new things.

HANNAH JOHN-KAMEN: We all have our own adventures and our own path. It’s also the introduction of the character Aneela, who is Khlyen’s daughter, so we will also be exploring that world.

LUKE MACFARLANE: D’avin continues to sort of play better with others much more than the first season. As John is on his walkabout, we are getting along really well as team members. The big question for him is we know that he has these sort of magical powers—for lack of a better term—so we’re going to continue to learn more about that.

AA: If you remember, John sort of left on… not a great note. His girlfriend was murdered. A bit of a low point for John there and then he sort of takes his revenge and then is off. A big part for John is dealing with that, dealing with the death of Pawter, but then his actions, reconciling those actions, and how he fits back into the team—because I think he’s changed a little bit.

HJK: Dutch lost Khlyen in the last season and everything she thought she knew was completely destroyed in that moment. The discovery of Aneela and the job that has to be done—Dutch is seeing red and I think the war is on.

AA: Our dynamic is still our dynamic, but I think one of the interesting things about the show is we’re always kind of playing with the dynamics of the trio. The core of it stays the same, but there’s always a little bit of dancing around and trying to figure out how we all fit together. It’s part of what makes Killjoys original.

LM: To be part of something truly original is really rewarding. When I tell people, ‘Oh, I’m doing this sci-fi show,’ the immediate question is, ‘Oh, what’s it based on?’ So much of the material that’s coming out right now is coming from a sort of history, maybe a comic book. That’s wonderful and that’s what is required nowadays, but we get to make up the rules as we go and I wish there was more space for that on the market because it expands us all, as both creators and viewers.

AA: As far as the future goes, five seasons and a movie, right? That’s what you want. But yeah, I hope that people will remember it fondly because I think we’re all really proud of it. We all really enjoy it. The idea of it ending is really a bummer, not just for the show, but we get along so well. That’s really sad to think about, but yeah, I hope people walk away having had fun and really enjoying it and just remembering it fondly, the way we will.

Killjoys returns to Space June 30 at 8pm ET.
