Before we address who exactly Slater’s character is, let’s take a look at the show’s premise. Thanks to Deadline, we’ve got a decent amount of detailed story information that has piqued our interest. Mr. Robot “centers on a young programmer, Elliot (Rami Malek), who suffers from a debilitating anti-social disorder and decides that he can only connect to people by hacking them. He will find himself in the intersection between a cybersecurity firm he works for and the underworld organizations recruiting him to bring down corporate America.”
It’s a surprise that there’s still such interest in hacking, especially since it’s unlikely any series or movie could ever better 1995’s Hackers. »

Since breaking out over 20 years ago in "Thelma & Louise," Brad Pitt has been difficult to miss.
After landing his place in cinematic history as a hunky (and shirtless) criminal, Pitt's career blossomed with starring roles in critical and box office hits alike, such as "A River Runs Through It" (1992), "Seven" (1995), and "12 Monkeys" (1995) -- just to name a few. In the past two decades, Pitt has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but his role has expanded beyond just acting. In only the past few years, he's produced two Best Picture nominated films, "Moneyball" (2011) and "12 Years a Slave" (2013). This fall, he's back in front of the camera leading his battle-hardened platoon into Nazi Germany in "Fury."

Every year, one event rocks New York to its very core in a way that is so profound and so special that it grows in audience attendance every fall when it rolls along. That event, of course, is the hugely popular New York Comic Con and thousands of faithful pop culture fans and cosplayers flock to the Big Apple to partake in the annual celebration.

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

After breaking away from the original concept to explore a world of drug cartels and ‘80s references in season five, FX’s Archer returns to the spy game when the show comes back in January. During a panel at New York Comic Con, it became evidently clear that Vice is very much in the past — though the departure did earn the series its first Best Animated Series Emmy nomination — when FX screened the first episode. The cast also shared some spoilers that made us antsy for the return of the series.
1. No more Isis — for obvious news-related reasons
2. Cyril Figgis wants a role in the parenting of Abigene
3. The lack of cocaine means the return of Pam’s full figure
4. A reference to Brett Bunsen in the first episode (Rip, Brett)
5. Milton the toaster

The conversation surrounding potential supporting actress nominees includes some names familiar to the Oscar race, such as Meryl Streep (Into the Woods), and some that could be nominated for the first time, such as Emma Stone (Birdman). The list of potential contenders also includes Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Rene Russo (Nightcrawler), two ladies that have flown under the radar since the 90s but could mark their return with first-time Oscar nominations.
Arquette’s role as the mother in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, a film that chronicles 12 years in a young boy’s (played by Ellar Coltrane) life as he grows up in a divorced household, has been generating Oscar buzz since the film premiered at Sundance. Arquette was involved in a few projects during those 12 years of filming, which was possible due to the sporadic nature of shooting, only three to four days a year. »

Lars von Trier's wildly unrestrained psychosexual opus is the gift that keeps on giving. While the original bifurcated -- though hardly coy -- Volumes I and II are already streaming on Netflix, the great Dane's five-and-a-half-hour director's cut of this controversial epic starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as the title sex addict is now available on paid VOD platforms including iTunes and Amazon. Von Trier's definitive version, which most recently screened at Fantastic Fest, digs deeper into the lusty Joe's (played by Gainsbourg in adulthood and Stacy Martin as a young woman) Freudian beginnings, including her too-close relationship with her father (Christian Slater). And there is of course lots more explicit sex and talk of fly-fishing with Stellan Skarsgard as the man who rescues Joe from herself. (The very, very Nsfw clips below serve up just a taste of the action.) Now vying for European Film Awards, "Nymphomaniac" divided critics throughout its festival run and. »

With movie ticket sales declining, quality television has taken its place as the cool kids table in the cafeteria. The hottest, most feted actors in all of celebdom are clamoring to get cast on the small screen — and it’s not just TV actors. Movie stars want in on the compelling scripts and genius ensemble casts, too. And it’s a win-win for television execs (who wouldn’t want the instant recognizability and built-in audience that a big screen star would bring to their series?). The only issue? For every Alec Baldwin, Zooey Deschanel, or Matthew McConaughey, you have a Christina Ricci, Christian Slater, or Ashley Judd — all of whom starred on series (or multiple series) that bombed spectacularly.
