Hp wants to warn its customers after the threat posed by cyberattacks. In order to to make its point, it has turned to a man who plays one of TV’s most notable hackers. Christian Slater, who portrays a prominent character in the cyber-drama Mr. Robot, is the star of The Wolf, a branded web series created by the content-focused Hp Studios department.
In The Wolf, Slater plays a smiliar hacker who wages war against a pregnable company. The clear goal of the series is to use Slater’s Wolf as an example for potential Hp clients. Use our services to secure your devices, and you’ll be better defended against potential cyberattacks, the show seems to say. In the first episode, The Wolf uses a printer as his base of operations, underscoring one of Hp’s points. "Cyberattacks on enterprises across the world are only increasing," said Vikrant Batra, »

For while CBS’ Sundays-at-10 (or 10:30-ish!) time slot is no picnic, and any number of dramas have capped NBC’s Thursday line-up over the years, ABC’s Tuesdays-at-10 “death slot” has earned a notorious nickname that even the casual viewer likely knows.
All told, S.H.I.E.L.D. is the ninth drama to claim that spot since September 2011, when »
Now well into its second decade, the Slamdance Film Festival is gearing up for its 2017 edition. Mostly taking place at the Treasure Mountain Inn at top of Park City, Utah’s busting Main Street, Slamdance is dedicated to presenting a festival and a community designed “for filmmakers by filmmakers.”
In previous years, projects from directors like Christopher Nolan, Marc Forster, Jared Hess, Oren Peli, Benh Zeitlin, Seth Gordon, Lynn Shelton and Lena Dunham have bowed at the festival, and it’s become a fertile — if offbeat — proving ground for fresh talents. This year looks to be yet another banner one for the fest, and as such, we’ve gone on a little trip through the Slamdance slate to dig up some prime possibilities for must-see films (shorts and features!).

The new series, the first hour-long show to hit TV Land, will premiere with a 10-episode first season this fall. Under the Dome's Grace Victoria Cox will play heroine Veronica Sawyer in the modern-day adaptation, which also stars James Scully as J.D., Melanie Field as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara.
The original film followed Veronica (Winona Ryder) and J.D.'s (Christian Slater) battle against their school's social order, specifically three popular girls all named Heather, and ended with murders staged to appear as suicide.

Tom Hiddleston won his first Golden Globe Award on Sunday evening and attempted to use his acceptance speech to bring attention to the civil war gripping South Sudan. But in spite of his noble intentions, the Night Manager star was roundly criticized on social media by observers who found his remarks self-indulgent, tone-deaf, or just plain awkward.
During his speech, Hiddleston, 35, recalled a recent trip to the world’s youngest nation, where he worked with the United Nations Children’s Fund. While there, he was approached by a group of doctors and nurses »

Winona Ryder may have been so busy ducking her ex-boyfriend Matt Damon at the Golden Globes on Sunday that she forgot to reunite with her Heathers costar Christian Slater, too. The actress was on hand for the big show on Sunday night and though she didn't take home the best actress in a TV drama series for her role in Stranger Things, she did look absolutely stunning on the red carpet in a black Viktor & Rolf gown. For the record, it's her first time attending the Globes since 2000 (with Matt Damon!), and somehow she's managed to look the same. She and Christian didn't come together during the event, but Winona still made time to gush about her former costar with E!'s Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet. "I have not seen him in a long time, but I adore him," she said. "I'm so happy for him. I could »

.@twhiddleston wins Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made For Television! Congrats! #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/2hDCKNXVNN - Golden Globe Awards (@goldenglobes) January 9, 2017 Tom Hiddleston took home his first Golden Globe when he won best actor in a limited series on Sunday night. While there were sadly no jabs at his ex Taylor Swift, he did take a moment to discuss his humanitarian work in South Sudan. During his speech, he talked about how he was approached by young doctors and nurses who recently binge-watched his show The Night Manager during a recent shelling incident. Of course, the best moment had to be the hilarious reactions from the audience. Let's just say, Christian Slater's face is priceless.
