House of Cards is based on a book trilogy by author Lord Michael Dobbs, whose work was first adapted as a BBC miniseries.
First shown together last year at Susanne Vielmetter’s gallery in Los Angeles, the trilogy reads as an exploration of the aftershocks of war — how war is mediated by images and internalized by later generations.
The trilogy ranges from the Russian Revolution through both World Wars to the American civil rights era and on to the end of the Cold War, told in the eyes of five families and their descendants.
Last week, the Star Wars fandom was rocked by the news that Colin Trevorrow would no longer be directing Episode IX of the latest trilogy in the Skywalker saga.
More than two years ago, Kennedy hired Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World (the fourth-highest grossing film in cinema history), to complete her Star Wars sequel trilogy as the writer and director of the still untitled Episode IX.
The director was back in Philly a decade later to film the Young documentary, one in a trilogy.
The untitled film stars Ehrenreich as the young smuggler Solo (a role originated by Harrison Ford) and Glover as Lando Calrissian (played by Billy Dee Williams in the first trilogy).
As SmartNews reports, the trilogy has already won a number of prestigious awards and is being used in school curricula to teach students about the Civil Rights movement.

Did You Know?
Dozens of tragic trilogies were written for the Greek stage, though only one, Aeschylus's great Oresteia (consisting of Agamemnon, The Libation Bearers, *and *The Eumenides), has survived complete. Authors in later years have occasionally chosen to create trilogies to allow themselves to develop a highly complex story or cover a long span of time. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings wasn't actually intended as a trilogy, but since it was published in three volumes it's usually called one. George Lucas's three original Star Wars movies are an example of a film trilogy (which he followed many years later by another).
