Vera Is a Frightening Politician in the ‘Kill All Others’ Episode

Review and a video clip on Vera’s appearance in Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. Be sure to watch it, we can tell for certain you won’t be disappointed – Vera was amazing as usual!

If you have enjoyed adaptations of the visionary work of sci-fi author Philip K. Dick that have been made over the years—such as the Blade Runner films (based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) and the Amazon drama The Man in the High Castle (based on the novel of the same name, and which will debut its third season sometime this year)—you’ll be excited to know that Amazon has more Dick adaptations for you. Several of the author’s short stories have each inspired an episode in the new anthology series Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, available on the service starting Friday.

Dick’s works are adapted for this series by leading American and British writers and directors, including Ronald D. Moore of Battlestar Galactica and Outlander fame, who also serves as an executive producer for the series.

Another executive producer of Electric Dreams is Bryan Cranston, who is also part of the large and notable cast of actors bringing Dick’s tales to life. Along with Cranston, the series will feature Steve Buscemi, Greg Kinnear, Maura Tierney, Janelle Monáe, Mireille Enos, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Vera Farmiga and many others.

You can watch Farmiga in the exclusive clip below, courtesy of Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television. It’s from the “Kill All Others” episode of Electric Dreams (based on Dick’s story “The Hanging Stranger”). Farmiga plays a politician who makes a shocking statement encouraging violence; in the wake of that, a man is found hanging from a lamp post, apparently murdered and inexplicably ignored by passersby. When Philbert Noyce (Mel Rodriguez) dares to question the situation, he finds himself a target.

“Electric Dreams” premieres tonight

If you are able to, be sure to watch Vera’s episode on Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams tonight, January 12th!

Article from Entertainment Weekly:

Watch out Black Mirror, because there’s another sci-fi anthology series on the block.

Making its U.S. debut Friday on Amazon’s streaming service, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is based on the oft-mined short stories of the late author and further explores his futuristic worlds and ideas.

The series does so with the help of an all-star crew in front of the camera and behind it. Steve Buscemi, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Greg Kinnear, Janelle Monáe, Vera Farmiga, and Maura Tierney are among the actors involved, while Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica), and Dee Rees (Mudbound) each wrote and/or directed an episode.

Filling the role of both star and executive producer is Bryan Cranston, who previously appeared in the 2012 Total Recall remake, which, like Blade Runner and Minority Report, was inspired by Dick’s work.

“I will not do anything that doesn’t move me, because otherwise, it’s just a job — and I don’t need a job,” Cranston tells EW. “I had always been a fan of Philip K. Dick, and I love to tell stories, so when this opportunity came up, I jumped to be a part of it.”

The four-time Emmy-winner, who has made a concerted effort to create and produce projects in his post-Breaking Bad years (Sneaky Pete, Dangerous Book For Boys), leads the cast of Electric Dreams‘ third episode, “Human Is.” Director Francesca Gregorini’s installment focuses on Vera (Essie Davis), a woman suffering through a loveless marriage with her emotionally abusive husband (Cranston). But when he returns from battle, he suddenly appears to be a different man — in more ways than one.

“If you look at it just briefly, the glimpsed opinion is that it’s a dystopian sci-fi show,” explains Cranston. “But thematically, every episode has a relatable, useful human element to it, whether it’s tackling xenophobia, jealousy, greed, or privacy.”

Ahead of the series’ Friday release on Amazon, watch an exclusive clip from Cranston’s episode above.

While the stories may be worlds apart, central to each is the poignant and warm exploration of the importance and significance of humanity.

Dick’s Electric Dreams will be available as a Prime Exclusive Series in the U.S., as well as in select territories globally, including Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Latin America, Spain and Turkey, among others.

“Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams” Trailer

Here is the first trailer for Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams and I’m very excited for this new series. It’s based on short stories so that’s why there is different cast for each episode.

Amazon apparently looked at the success of Black Mirror and thought, “Can we have one of those, please?” In Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, the streaming service presents ten stand-alone stories based on the prolific sci-fi writers’ imagined worlds.

The cast includes Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Greg Kinnear, Maura Tierney, Janelle Monae, Mireille Enos, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Timothy Spall, Liam Cunningham, Richard Madden, Holiday Grainger, Mel Rodriguez, Vera Farmiga, Jack Reynor, Essie Davis, Benedict Wong, Geraldine Chaplin, and more.

The anthology series premieres in 2018, but the date hasn’t been announced yet, because Amazon’s all spooky and cool.
