Siri, or one of her relatives, may be coming to your television set -- if it's attached to a DirecTV DVR. The satellite TV company announced on Wednesday that it will launch new technology early next month that will allow anyone with a smartphone to speak commands or ask questions to the DirecTV program guide. For example, it said, users will simply ask What comedies are on now? and promptly receive a list of those comedies, without having to scroll through the entire list of programs that are currently on the air. The voice-recognition service is due to roll out beginning Oct. 3 and, according to Advertising Age magazine, will be supported by a $30-40-million advertising campaign and run through the holiday season.
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The actress will no doubt be returning for the long-running FX series.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
