'Under the Volcano' screening: John Huston's 'quality' comeback starring daring Albert Finney As part of its John Huston film series, the UCLA Film & Television Archive will be presenting the 1984 drama Under the Volcano, starring Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, and Anthony Andrews, on July 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Billy Wilder Theater in the Los Angeles suburb of Westwood. Jacqueline Bisset is expected to be in attendance. Huston was 77, and suffering from emphysema for several years, when he returned to Mexico – the setting of both The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Night of the Iguana – to direct 28-year-old newcomer Guy Gallo's adaptation of English poet and novelist Malcolm Lowry's 1947 semi-autobiographical novel Under the Volcano, which until then had reportedly defied the screenwriting abilities of numerous professionals. Appropriately set on the Day of the Dead – 1938 – in the fictitious Mexican town of Quauhnahuac (the fact that it sounds like Cuernavaca is no coincidence »

Following the announcement that Sean Spicer has resigned as White House Press Secretary, we at TVLine are mourning an even greater presumed loss: Melissa McCarthy’s portrayal of Spicer on Saturday Night Live.
McCarthy’s Emmy-nominated impersonation was all but destined to be short-lived, but it made quite the impression while it lasted. Following her debut as Press Sec, Spicer himself weighed in on the parody, insisting that McCarthy “could dial back” some aspects of her performance. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, never gave »
Twitter partied like it was 1995 on Thursday.
O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing for a 2007 armed robbery captured the nation’s — and social media’s — attention on Thursday. The Nevada Parole Board granted Simpson parole, and the former football star could walk free as early at Oct. 1. Twitter reacted to the news throughout the televised hearing and especially after the verdict was announced.
Ava DuVernay tweeted a gif of a baffled man as soon as the Nevada board granted Simpson with the parole.

“Oj Simpson has been granted parole. He can now go back to searching for the real killers of his ex-wife.”
Every day society doesn't give Oj parole is one more day we keep him from finding the real killer#OJSimpsonParole

When Margaret Atwood wrote “The Handmaid’s Tale” as a bleak novel of a world gone wrong back in 1985, she probably never could have anticipated the chord it would strike with an audience three decades later. But Hulu, which picked up Bruce Miller’s adaptation of the tale, immediately saw the “grounded, world-building” story as one that would be relevant for the television landscape — and its own original programming slate — for years to come. The Academy validated Hulu’s belief by crowning the series with 13 Emmy nods.
“We anticipated this, not the Emmy nominations, but the type of show that ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ would be for Hulu a year ago,” says Craig Erwich, head of content at Hulu. “It’s an incredible book that lends itself to a television series [with] the villains, the heroes and this incredible world.”
“Handmaid’s Tale” is not the streaming service’s first foray into high-concept scripted series: Last year saw J.J. Abrams »

Editors Note: Over the past two weeks, a controversy has been brewing over the casting of Alec Baldwin as a blind man in the Michael Mailer-directed indie Blind. Led by the Ruderman Foundation — a non-profit that advocates for the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of life — the issue was raised as to why the filmmaker would cast a seeing actor for a blind role. Mailer responded last week — the day the indie drama opened in theaters — in a guest colu… »

It’s never a great sign when a network show debuts in the dead of summer, more than a year after it was first announced. But those red flags make sense when you actually watch Midnight, Texas (premiering Monday, July 24 at 10/9c on NBC) — an overstuffed, often ridiculous supernatural drama that somehow manages to make a town filled with magical creatures seem crushingly dull.
