'The Bourne Supremacy' 10 years later: Does the action hold up?

23 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There’s certainly no shortage of fights, explosions, and car chases to witness onscreen these days, but much of the action is, frankly, dull—the result of a tired series or a simple lack of creativity.

Just over a decade ago, however, the Bourne Identity set the action bar high. And since today is the tenth anniversary of the franchise’s second film, The Bourne Supremacy, we’re taking a look back at how the series got action right, how it has weathered the last 10 years, and what action films circa 2014 can learn from the trilogy.

TV Review: ‘The Killing,’ The Final Season on Netflix

21 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Killing” didn’t necessarily deserve an ending after its third-season cliffhanger, but the one-time AMC series — which went from sensation to scorned in near-record time — needed one. Recognizing a property with binge potential and name recognition, Netflix has obliged, punching up a six-episode final season that reunites the central characters and picks up pretty much where they left off — with baggage that spills over into, and largely eclipses, a new, fairly uninspired case. Despite flashes of what initially made the Danish adaptation so intriguing, this stretch drive can’t escape the feeling of a show ready to be put out of its misery.

The dense mood and mystery won the skein a rabid following, only to squander much of that goodwill when the first season didn’t wrap up the opening investigation. The second arc dragged, and a third — under a shared arrangement with Netflix — embarked on a new »

Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman get bloody in 'The Killing' season 4 posters

9 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Killing" returns for one last case this summer, and two new posters promise that stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will be getting their hands dirty -- and bloody.  The series, which originally aired on AMC, was picked up by Netflix for a 6 episode final season which picks up right after the season 3 finale. Both haunted by their actions in the previous season, Detectives Linden (Enos) and Holder (Kinnaman) have to investigate a mass murder which left a family dead. The only survivor was teenaged boy Kyle (Tyler Ross), who attends an elite military academy run by Colonel Margaret Rayne (Joan Allen). Kinnaman looks serious: But Enos can play the looking-serious game just as well: The new season also stars Gregg Henry, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden.    "The Killing" returns August 1 on Netflix. »

The Killing Season 4 Trailer

6 July 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The Killing is coming back this August after being cancelled by AMC, brought back by AMC, cancelled again, and then given another lease on life by Netflix for a fourth and presumably final season.

The first The Killing Season 4 trailer brings back Linden and Holder for what looks to be their most difficult case yet. At least it will be their quickest as this fourth and final season is only six episodes long.

There's been a mass killing of a family with the only survivor being a boy who attends an all-boys academy. While they investigate this case, someone goes missing within the Seattle Police Department.

Joining Mireille Enos and Joel Kinneman in The Killing Season 4 is Joan Allen as the head mistress of the all-boys academy.

Watch The Killing Season 4 trailer below, and then bing every new episode on Netflix beginning August 1. »

The Killing Season 4 Trailer

3 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The fourth and final season of The Killing is set to premiere on Netflix, and today we bring you a trailer for the murder mystery series. I really like the series, and I'm so happy that Netflix saved the show and brought it back to finish the story that the creators set out to tell. 

The final season of the show picks up right after the Season 3 finale.

"As Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman) struggle to manage the fallout from their rash actions at the end of last season, they are assigned a new case -- a picture perfect family is murdered, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), who was shot in the head during the massacre.

Things get intense in the trailer for The Killing season 4

2 July 2014 11:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Killing has had a tough go of it over the course of its four seasons. The AMC crime drama was cancelled after its second season, but was eventually picked up again after some negotiating with other networks like Netflix. The third season aired on AMC, but the show was then cancelled again, before promptly being picked up by Netflix for a fourth and final season.

The fourth season may only consist of six episodes, but judging by this new, intense trailer, that doesn’t mean it’s going to suffer. Check out the trailer here:

Detectives Sarah Linden (World War Z‘s Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Robocop‘s Joel Kinnaman) return to investigate the murder of a family whose only survivor is a member of an all-boys military academy, while dealing with covering up a mysterious disappearance within their own Seattle Police Department.

Who Looks the Saddest in This Teaser for The Killing?

2 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In this trailer for the upcoming final season of the show, Linden and Holder still look appropriately morose, and both the regular rain and the blood rain seem sadder than traditional precipitation. The bathtub seems sad. The kid with the black eye seems sad. It's The Killing. Everyone is very sad. Joan Allen plays the head of a military school where one of the students appears to be involved in a murder; it would seem like a real waste of Joan Allen to have her not be a part of the crime, so consider this your early prediction is that Joan Allen is the murderer. The Killing's six-episode fourth season premieres on Netflix August 1. Prepare to be sad. »

Linden and Holder face the morning after in 'The Killing' season 4 trailer

2 July 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When The Killing wrapped its third season, Det. Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) put herself and her partner Holder (Joel Kinnaman) in a compromising, life-altering dilemma after she gunned down their boss—not to mention Linden’s former lover—Skinner, who just happened to be a serial killer.

At the opening of the series’ fourth and final season, the partners face the immediate aftermath of Linden’s impulsive decision. “I can only imagine it will be very hard on the relationship,” Enos told EW after the season-three finale. “There’s nothing more toxic than a secret. If they cover it up »

The Killing Season 4 Trailer and Poster: Linden and Holder Face Serious Consequences in the Crime Drama’s Final Season

2 July 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Somewhat impossibly, Netflix has released the first The Killing season 4 trailer as well as a new poster.  The crime drama debuted on AMC in 2011 to solid reviews and ratings, but fans turned on the series when the story was stretched thin and the central mystery wasn’t solved until the end of the second season.  The show was cancelled, then AMC changed its mind and moved forward with season three.  The ratings continued to decline despite a creative upswing, and AMC subsequently cancelled the series again.  Enter Netflix, which then picked up the series for a fourth and final season consisting of six episodes, and we now have our first look at the show’s conclusion.  Season four picks up minutes after the season three finale, and sees Detectives Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) dealing with the aftermath of their decision while also working a new murder case involving an all-boys military academy, »

'The Killing' Final Season trailer teases a coverup and a new crime

2 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The fourth and final season of "The Killing" is coming to Netflix on August 1 and, as promised, the first trailer indicates that we're picking things up in the immediate aftermath of the third season finale. It was that third season finale, leaving Mireille Enos's Linden and Joel Kinnaman's Holder in ethical and legal limbo, that spawned sufficient audience concern that, after AMC cancelled "The Killing," led Netflix to step in to order six episodes to cap off the series run.  Netflix has been dropping "Killing" first-looks aggressively over the past two weeks. Last week we got the first image from the season, featuring new addition Joan Allen, who plays the headmaster at a military school rocked by a murder involving one of its students. Earlier this week, Netflix presented the first key art for the new season. I didn't have time to write it up on Monday, but here it is. »

Check Out The Thrilling First Trailer For The Killing Season 4

2 July 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Next month, Netflix will unveil the fourth and final season of The Killing, a gritty police drama which it rescued from AMC in order to give fans closure about the fates of Seattle detectives Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman). The first trailer for that six-episode final season has arrived – and the results are quite surprising.

One of the things that turned many viewers off The Killing throughout its AMC run was the slow and deliberate pace, which was only accentuated by the perpetually rainy setting. However, this trailer is veritably cinematic, delivering lots of tense line snippets and a highly suspenseful score. This is definitely a different version of The Killing than we’ve seen before (or at leasta similar version being marketed in a brand new way).

Of course, the fourth season, which finds Linden and Holder dealing with the fallout from their actions at the end »

'The Killing' Season 4 Trailer: Blood on Holden and Linden's Hands (Video)

2 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Rosie Larsen is dead, but "The Killing" isn't! The dark crime drama can't stop and won't stop, and this here trailer proves it. "The Killing" has survived being canceled twice, irate fans, and the "RoboCop" remake, only to pop back up on Netflix with a fourth season. This is supposedly the last season, but we'll believe it when we see it.

Without further ado, here's the trailer for the fourth season, which picks up where the third left off. Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) are super stressing after the crime they committed in the third season. Linden is tormented by what they did, and Holder... isn't. Meanwhile, they've got a new crime on their hands to investigate, and it's pretty gnarly.

Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross) is the only survivor of the murder of his family, and while he did get shot in the head, well, he's not looking too innocent. »

Linden (Mireille Enos) stares at the Seattle skyline from across the Sound in the first poster released to promote the fourth and final season of detective series “The Killing.” “The Past Can't Be Washed Away” is the season's tagline, referring to the emotional ending of season 3 wherein Linden killed her ex-partner and potential love interest James Skinner (Elias Koteas) after he revealed himself as the latest serial killer Linden and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) were tracking.

“The Past Can’t Be Washed Away.”

That cryptic tagline — accompanied by an ominous shot of Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) staring out at a cloud-covered Puget Sound — paints a foreboding and gloomy picture of The Killing‘s fourth and final season on Netflix.

And that’s very much by design, according to series creator Veena Sud.
