Franco is noted for being the first magician to win AGT, his victory coming in Season 9 in 2014. His performances are unique due to his reputation for thoroughly immersing the audiences in his experience. "I don't want the show to be about me. I want the show to be about them." Franco told Las Vegas Magazine.
According to an official press release, Franco's shows "Leaves audiences awe-struck and amazed with unique feats of illusion," and that "Mat is redefining the genre with his signature interactive magic, as seen on TV, and never-before-seen creations." The show was also listed in Forbes as one of "The 5 Best Shows to See in Vegas Right Now" in 2018.
Like most Vegas shows, the performances had to be put on hold due to the pandemic. However, it was reopened in Spring 2021. Today, Franco celebrates the show's 6th year anniversary. "One of my goals in the revamp of the show is to bring more color and positivity than what was already there." He said about its return to The Strip.
Mat Franco-Magic Reinvented Nightly is performed every Monday through Thursday at 7pm and every Saturday at 9:30pm at The Linq Hotel. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster.

The fists will indeed be flying in the intense fourth season of the Karate Kid sequel series. This new teaser reveals that Cobra Kai will be returning to the All Valley Karate Tournament, which was a fixture of all three Karate Kid movies and promises to heighten the stakes beyond anything seen in the show so far.
The 30-second video features Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), John Kreese (Martin Kove), Tory Nichols (Peyton List), and others showing off their karate skills and their readiness to use them. "The soul of the valley is on the line," growls the voiceover narrator as characters roar with zestful fury onscreen. Afterwards, there is a brief moment of levity as characters at a dinner party lampshade the absurdity of the karate dojos' rivalry, but it does little to defuse the tense atmosphere created by the rest of the trailer.
This season of Cobra Kai is bigger, badder, and bolder than everything that has come before it. Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith), the evil mastermind of The Karate Kid Part III, is joining the show for season 4. Audiences are also looking forward to seeing Daniel and Johnny team up, finally inspired to overcome their differences by a mutual hatred of Kreese and his brand of merciless villainy. The show is at an all-time high in popularity, thanks to its acquisition by Netflix and a highly-successful third season, so its creators (Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg) are likely to push the envelope further than ever before with their audacious and explosive combination of furious martial arts and intense drama.
Season 4 of Cobra Kai releases on Netflix sometime in December of 2021.

On Wednesday, audiences got their first look at Kate, a new action movie that stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as an assassin with 24 hours to live. This dynamic thriller is Netflix's most recent foray into the action genre after the success of Gunpowder Milkshake last month.
From the trailer, it seems that Winstead's character (the eponymous Kate) will be a seasoned killer who is commissioned to assassinate a Yakuza leader, only to botch the hit after being mysteriously poisoned. This attracts the attention of her target's henchmen, who attempt to kill Kate as revenge. She is forced to rely on her handler (Woody Harrelson) and a zesty young girl with a connection to Kate's past (Miku Martineau) in order to evade her hunters and find the answers she seeks. On top of all of this, Kate is on a ticking clock: the aforementioned poison will kill her within 24 hours.
Produced by David Leitch, who directed Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and Hobbs & Shaw, and starring Winstead, who's an action veteran (Birds of Prey, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) it's clear that the fighting in this film is going to be handled by professionals. In the trailer, brief snapshots reveal that Kate will do battle using sniper rifles, martial arts, concealed knives, machine guns, and even a grenade. The variety of violence and the female leads will set Kate apart in a genre that has increasingly sought to up its ante in the wake of stunt-laden game-changer films like John Wick and Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
Kate is currently scheduled for a release on September 10th, 2021.
