‘Handmaid’s Tale’ season 2 photos look bloody terrifying – CNET

” The Handmaid’s Tale ” isn’t getting any cheerier, at least not based on photos Hulu released on Friday.

One photo shows Elisabeth Moss, who stars as Offred, her neck and shoulder drenched in blood. From her calm face, however, it would appear these are someone else’s vital fluids.

Another shows a group of women trudging through an empty rural field, guarded by a man on horseback. We’re assuming this represents the Colonies , the now-poisoned areas of the country where disobedient Handmaids are sent as punishment. Showrunner Bruce Miller confirmed to Entertainment Weekly the new season will explore life in those wastelands.

But perhaps the most striking image shows what appears to be a Handmaid’s funeral (we can guess whose…). The Handmaids’ red gowns look striking cloaked in funeral black.

“Everything from the design of their costumes to the way they look is so chilling,” Miller told EW. “These scenes that are so beautiful, while set in such a terrible place, provide the kind of contrast that makes me happy.”

“The Handmaid’s Tale” won two Golden Globe awards last week, for best television drama, and best actress in a television drama for Moss. Season two will come to Hulu sometime in April.

If you thought life in Gilead was bad, just wait until the Golden Globe Award-winning show gets to the Colonies.

As usual, CES 2018 provided a bonanza of big screens, loaded up with every piece of tech you can create a buzzword for. But figuring out which TVs will matter to you next year is about a little more than just pixels and apps. While there could…

In the midst of CES 2018, the slate of new computers on display, including laptops, 2-in-1 hybrids, desktops and tablets, felt a little dry. There were few revolutionary new designs, and only a handful of brand-new products — most were modest internal or external updates to existing lines from Dell, HP, Lenovo and others.

But looking a little deeper, I realized this was a year of partnerships and team-ups, where how the elements inside new computers worked together was more important than what they looked like on the outside.

This is the team-of-rivals pairing no one thought would ever happen. Intel’s new Kaby Lake G processors combine an Intel CPU and an AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics chip into a very small package that can fit into slim mainstream laptops and small desktops, while offering decent gaming performance and even VR support. So far, we’ve only seen a few laptop examples, in the high-end Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the HP Spectre x360 15 , along with Intel’s own Hades Canyon NUC , a tiny book-sized desktop, but it’s the new hardware idea we’re most eager to test and benchmark in 2018.

At one time, the conventional wisdom was that smartphones were becoming so powerful and so feature-packed, and with such big screens, that they would eventually replace tablets and laptops for a lot of people. Tablets have indeed become less ubiquitous, but the…
