The bloodshed has begun at NBC.
Short-order drama Emerald City has been canceled after one underwhelming season.
The series, a modern version of The Wizard of Oz based on L. Frank Baum's Oz book series, had a nearly two-year journey from script to screen. The drama now has the distinction of being canceled not once, but twice, as the Vincent D'Onofrio starrer was picked up straight to series and scrapped before being revived with another writer months later.
The drama disappeared just as quietly as it opened, despite the impressive names attached, including acclaimed director Tarsem Singh and D'Onofrio as the Wizard. The »

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.
Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about »

Stephen Colbert congratulated America for surviving Donald Trump's first 100 days as president on Friday's Late Show. "After this, we can not bring him back to the store without a receipt," the host said.
"Maybe the president hasn't gotten a lot done in his first 100 days, but you know who has? America," Colbert continued. "Congratulations, you did it. First of all, we survived a Trump presidency for 100 days. I don't know about you, but I did not have that in the office pool."
Colbert then reviewed all the great things »
There are some stories that deserve to be told and retold - handed down through generation after generation, from campfire tales through to the era of TV and cinema and far beyond. Whether they're related in the pages of a book or projected on a movie screen, these stories speak to the essence of what makes us human: our histories, our friendships, our fears and desires. CHiPs, based on the 70s TV show about two motorcycle cops in California, is not one of those stories.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a big place, and it's getting bigger all the time. You've got the solo movies that started with Iron Man, the cinematic team-ups that began with The Avengers, the TV shows that started with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series that kicked off with Daredevil.
Fans have long been hoping that these worlds could properly collide, with a crossover between the big screen Avengers, the small screen Defenders (Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist), and perhaps even some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being a popular dream.
From Redband.Ca, Sneak Peek the restricted 'red band' trailer supporting "CHiPs", the new action comedy cop feature written and directed by Dax Shepard, based on the TV series of the same name created by Rick Rosner, opening March 24, 2017:
"...two middle-aged 'California Highway Patrol' motorcycle officers, soon find themselves in a situation like none other, when a sadistic ex-cop and his motor vehicle theft gang wreak havoc throughout their city..."

Isabel Lucas, Roxy Sternberg, Stefanie Martini, Rebeka Rea, and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson recurred on the NBC fantasy drama, based on the Oz novels by L. Frank Baum.Read More… »
Right now, I have a love/hate relationship going on with Emerald City.
If the series ends with Emerald City Season 1 Episode 10, I will not be a happy camper. Not just because I've enjoyed the series and want to see a second season, but also because there were too many questions left unanswered.
The best part about the entire Emerald City series was West and Tip. There was nothing that could compare to their chemistry and camaraderie. They were perfect together.
I loved how they each looked out for one another, like a mother and daughter. It was beautiful to watch.
It's just too bad Tip had to give up who he really wanted to be to fulfill his destiny. Once he put on that crown, Tip was no more.
I was sort of torn about what Ozma did to Eamonn. »

"I'm a tough motorcycle cop. I've got no emotion." Warner Bros has debuted a new red band trailer for the Chips movie, a big screen version of the goofy TV show about California Highway Patrolmen. This comedy is yet another update on barely-remembered, totally cheesy TV shows, like 21 Jump Street, now packed with self-awareness and contemporary humor. Dax Shepard directs himself in the film, co-starring Michael Pena, plus Jessica McNamee, Adam Brody, Ryan Hansen, Vincent D'Onofrio, Justin Chatwin and Kristen Bell. The first trailer made this look like they're borrowing from Super Troopers. This new trailer makes it look like they're borrowing from Point Break. Either way, this really doesn't look good at all. Here's the newest red band trailer (+ poster) for Dax Shepard's Chips movie, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for Chips here, to see even more footage from this movie.

Though it's another raunchy, R-rated take on a classic TV show, CHiPs hasn't gotten the same kind of promotional push as this year's Baywatch. An adults only update on the hit adventure series from the late 70s, CHiPs will be in theaters in less than a month, and we've barely heard anything about it. Following the first trailer released just weeks ago, Warner Bros. has delivered a go-for-broke red band sneak peek that is sure to tease, tantalize, and really get a few old school fans worked up. This isn't the CHiPs your grandparents used to know!
Jon Baker and Frank "Ponch" Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a professional motorbike rider who's trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky, undercover FBI agent who's investigating a multimillion dollar heist that may be an inside job. »
Given how popular Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin proved to be when he debuted back on season 1 of Daredevil, it’s actually a bit surprising that he hasn’t made the jump to the big screen yet. Especially given the fact that one of the biggest complaints lobbied against Marvel films is that they always fail to present compelling villains. With that in mind, you’d think that the studio would be eager to let Kingpin start doing some damage in the movies, but for some reason, it hasn’t happened yet.
Now that Spider-Man‘s back at Marvel and getting his very own solo film coming in July, many fans thought that maybe, just maybe, D’Onofrio would find his way into the flick for a quick cameo, possibly setting up a future appearance down the road. That’s something which could have worked out real well, but it »

For those of you unaware, Vincent D’Onofrio has one of the most fan interactive Twitter accounts of any actor out there on social media. He genuinely seems like a great, down-to-earth guy, so it’s no surprise that when someone asked him if he would like to see his version of Kingpin (seen in Netflix’s Daredevil) go up against Tom Holland’s new incarnation of Spider-Man, he joyfully replied. Check out the exchange here…
