Who'll be causing chaos for Kara?
Though it originally started out as CBS' staple superhero series, 'Supergirl' took a trip to The CW following its first season when it failed to rack up the sort of viewers that CBS would have liked, joining the likes of 'Arrow', 'The Flash' and 'Legends of Tomorrow' when it arrived. Now as a fully-fledged member of the Arrowverse, it's enjoying ample success throughout its second season and has already been confirmed to return for a third later this year.
'Supergirl' will return for a third season later this year on The CW
Melissa Benoist takes on the titular role as Supergirl, otherwise known as Kara Zor-El, with Mehcad Brooks and Chyler Leigh joining her on the cast in the roles of James Olsen and Alex Danvers respectively. Fans were also hugely excited this season to see the introduction of Teri Hatcher as the villainous Rhea. Hatcher had of course in the past played Lois Lane in 'The New Adventures of Superman' and Ella Lane in an episode of 'Smallville'. It seems the DC Universe is one she cannot - or one she does not want to escape.

The third time's a charm for Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg, who previously teamed for the true life adventures Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon, both films that spent too much time glorifying rah-rah heroism to properly tell their stories. But this dramatic thriller, which recounts the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, is a startlingly visceral experience, allowing for a lot more humanity in the characters. Which actually makes them feel both more honest and more heroic.
Wahlberg plays Tommy, a street cop who feels like no one notices that he's rather good at his job. When two brothers (Alex Wolff and Themo Melikidze) explode bombs at the marathon's finish line, Tommy leaps in to help the injured. And due to his local knowledge, he also helps advise FBI investigator Richard (Kevin Bacon), who is working with the local police commissioner (John Goodman). As the frantic manhunt for the bombers extends over the following days, Tommy's wife (Michelle Monaghan) tries to get him to rest, but he pushes on. And with the whole city helping the cops, the brothers are eventually chased into the neighbourhood of beat cop Jeffrey (J.K. Simmons) for an intense showdown.
This film manages to get the balance right between gritty action and inspiring heroics. Berg mixes documentary footage in seamlessly, grounding everything in reality, and he lets the actors draw out the flaws in these real-life people. This makes them much easier to identify with, which in turn makes the action sequences that much more involving. There's a shootout in here that is perhaps one of the most outrageous ones ever put on film, even more remarkable because it's true. And while Wahlberg is the only character who gets some proper depth, he plays Tommy beautifully, bouncing off everyone else in ways that add meaning and energy to the film.

Flockhart’s husband, Star Wars actor Harrison Ford, was involved in a plane crash earlier this year which left him in hospital for a number of weeks.
