New trailers: The Dark Tower, Marvel’s The Defenders, House of Cards, and more

The Wachowskis’ strange, celebratory, and globe-spanning series Sense8 returns for a second season on Netflix this week, so my colleague Tasha Robinson sat down to talk about the show with actor Naveen Andrews, who plays one of its more mysterious figures. I’d definitely recommend checking it out if you’re a fan.

I never quite got hooked on the mysteries of Sense8’s first season, but what I did love about it was how it felt like such a pure distillation of the Wachowskis’ interests: from martial arts to shared bodies and minds to larger-than-life forces keeping people from living the lives they want for themselves. The show has so many characters and locations and styles, it’s kind of incredible they’re able to stitch it all together.

Check out 11 trailers from this week below.

BlackBerry KeyOne review: part productivity, part nostalgia

The KeyOne’s focus on productivity is embodied by its hardware design. Technically, this phone was built by TCL, as BlackBerry itself does not make hardware anymore. And it’s running Google’s Android software instead of BlackBerry’s own operating system.

As far as smartphone keyboards go, rare as they are in 2017, it is very good. The clicky keys are backlit and they have a sloped design. They’re easy to press and easy to run your fingers over. The phone is also comfortably narrow to use in one hand (unlike the oddly wide BlackBerry Passport

Inundated by spam Facebook accounts, USA Today has asked the FBI to investigate

USA Today’s Facebook page is being inundated with likes from fake accounts, and its parent company, Gannett Co., has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to investigate. Before a purge of such accounts last month, USA Today contends that spam accounts made up a significant percentage of the publication’s followers on the social media platform.

While the social media company recently stepped up its efforts to combat fake accounts by purging millions of fake accounts in April, Gannett has gone to the FBI, saying that it remains a target of these types of spam efforts. It’s not immediately clear if the agency will investigate. While fake accounts violate Facebook’s Terms of Service, doing so isn’t a crime, but the company notes that these types of accounts “risks damaging a publisher’s brand.”
