Read More: Sundance: 'Bachelorette' Director Leslye Headland on Incredible Sex and Why Directing is a Female Act Writer-director Leslye Headland first showed a knack for mixing raunchy comedy with emotional heart in her 2012 debut "Bachelorette," starring Rebel Wilson and Kirsten Dunst. She's continuing the trend in "Sleeping with Other People," a rom-com starring Jason Suedikis and Alison Brie that puts a new spin on the phrase "friends with benefits." In the movie, Jake (Sudeikis) and Lainey (Brie) have been incapable of holding down a relationship, both finding insatiable needs to sleep with other people. When the two run into each other, they rekindle a flame that started when they lost their virginities to one another during a one night stand back in college. They begin a friendship and swear off sex as to not screw things up, though the relationship obviously proves difficult. "Sleeping with Other People" also stars Jason. »

It's time for more Fargo. Noah Hawley's FX anthology series has released a short teaser for season two, showcasing a hallmark of the show: beautifully bleak Midwestern landscapes.

Ted Danson, Patrick Wilson, Nick Offerman and Jean Smart are also on board.

Here's our first look at the second season of the Fargo TV show. Be warned, it's very brief and ambiguous...
Fargo season 1 was much loved here at Geek Tower... sorry, Shed. It was a fine example of how to make great TV from a great film, and gave us some faith in the glut of upcoming film-to-tv adaptations.
The announcement of season 2 was a pleasant surprise, then. The show will settle in a different time frame, believed to be the late 1970s, with a whole new cast that includes Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons as a married couple.
Today we saw the first teaser, which brings us back to an iconic field...
Not giving much away there, are they?

FX’s anthology series Fargo - based on the Coen Brothers film of the same name – was one of the biggest surprises of the 2014 television season, and all eyes are on series creator Noah Hawley to catch lightning in a bottle twice. We still have three months to wait until we find out if that’s possible, but we finally have our first glimpse at Fargo‘s much-anticipated return thanks to this new enigmatic teaser trailer.
Much like the trailers for the first season, the video above is light on plot details and simply sets the scene and tone for what’s to come. Fargo once again takes us to the snowy landscape of the American Midwest, with Hawley’s keen eye for ultra-violent undertones juxtaposed against the calming charm of the Dakotas is on full display.
Showing only a woodpecker and the flash of distant, ambient gunshots, the trailer »

A new teaser for FX’s anthology series Fargo doesn’t give us any specifics for Season 2, but it confirms that the series will stick to Season 1’s (and the Coen brothers original film’s) aesthetic of violence against a pristine, snowy background. In the short spot (which you can view below), a woodpecker pauses at the gun shots in the distance ... but then gets on with its business. What we do know about Season 2 is that it will be taking a leap back in time to the 1970s, and will focus on Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in first season, and Patrick Wilson in the upcoming season), and pivot around the violent events Solverson spoke cryptically about in Season 2. Wilson will be joined by Kirsten Dunst, Kieran Culkin, Ted Danson, Brad Garrett, Nick Offerman, Jesse Plemons, and Bokeem Woodbine, as well as Bruce Campbell, who will be playing a pre-potus Ronald Reagan. »

I really need to go back and finish watching the first season of FX's "Fargo". I think I watched the first three or four episodes and enjoyed them, but just never finished the season off. Now the second season is prepping to arrive this fall and, like HBO's "True Detective", it will have nothing to do with the first season. In fact, it will be set 27 years before the story of Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton), Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) and Deputy Molly Solverson (Allison Tolman). Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, "Fargo" producer Warren Littlefield said, "The second season is really is about the corporatization of America. It's the difference between a mom and pop family business and a Walmart." The ten-episode season will accomplish its examination of the corporatization of America, through a true crime tale of a mob turf war set in 1979, and will even include Ronald Reagan »

Like HBO's "True Detective," FX's "Fargo" is an anthology event series meaning the cast and storyline completely change and start afresh with each new season.
With the second season currently in production, producer Warren Littlefield has revealed to Empire that the new batch of ten episodes will deal with a clash between Midwestern crime syndicates in 1979:
"The second season is really is about the corporatisation of America. It's the difference between a mom and pop family business and a Walmart.
It's the Kansas City Mob basically looking to do a hostile takeover of the Gerhard crime family. In the middle, we have a couple, Ed and Peggy Blomquist, and they get caught in the middle of a war between these two crime factions."

The 2014 leak of hacked celebrity nudes might be more expansive than we initially thought. According to unsealed federal court documents obtained by NBC News, nearly 600 online storage accounts could have been breached. Upon the initial Labor Day weekend leak of private photos belonging to Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and more female stars, the FBI's Cybercrimes Unit launched an investigation. As early as October, the investigation led authorities to an address on the South Side of Chicago, the FBI said in a recently unsealed search warrant affidavit obtained by NBC News. Using phone records and IP data, investigators found that the compromised celebrity accounts had been »
Fargo, like True Detective, is forging forward from an acclaimed first season with a new series. Anthology television, to use the buzz phrase, affords the opportunity to wipe the narrative slate clean and start afresh. In the case of Fargo’s ten-part season 2, as producer Warren Littlefield revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, this will involve a dynastic clash of Midwestern crime syndicates in 1979. "The second season is really is about the corporatisation of America. It's the difference between a mom and pop family business and a Walmart," Littlefield revealed. "It's the Kansas City Mob basically looking to do a hostile takeover of the Gerhard crime family. In the middle, we have a couple, Ed and Peggy Blomquist, and they get caught in the middle of a war between these two crime factions.” The Blomquists, played by Kirsten Dunst and Breaking Bad’s Jesse Plemons, are a Sioux Falls, South Dakota couple slightly at odds anyway. »
Kelsey Hardwick, a British actress best known for her role in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” frolics in full-front selfie photos taken in a bathroom mirror. The apparent, private photos have leaked onto the Internet and are going viral. Hardwick has been dating Tom Parker, a singer with the boy band, The Wanted, for the past four years. Caught by last year's nude photo scandal were well-known actresses like Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Victoria Justice and Kate Upton. ...Read More »
Lenny Bruce: Dustin Hoffman in the 1974 Bob Fosse movie. Lenny Bruce movie review: Polemical stand-up comedian merited less timid biopic (Oscar Movie Series) Bob Fosse's 1974 biopic Lenny has two chief assets: the ever relevant free speech issues it raises and the riveting presence of Valerie Perrine. The film itself, however, is only sporadically thought-provoking or emotionally gripping; in fact, Lenny is a major artistic letdown, considering all the talent involved and the fertile material at hand. After all, much more should have come out of a joint effort between director Fosse, fresh off his Academy Award win for Cabaret; playwright-screenwriter Julian Barry, whose stage version of Lenny earned Cliff Gorman a Tony Award; two-time Best Actor Oscar nominee Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy); and cinematographer Bruce Surtees (Play Misty for Me, Blume in Love). Their larger-than-life subject? Lenny Bruce, the stand-up comedian who became one of the »

A year ago, if someone had mentioned that they were a fan of true crime, you might have sneered. You might have had images of cheap books in an airport Wh Smiths with gaudy titles, or perhaps of shoddily made TV programmes somewhere low down the Epg pecking order.
And then everything changed.
You couldn't move at the end of last year for people grabbing your arm and asking if you'd listened to the latest episode of Serial, a podcast investigating the 1999 murder of teenager Hae Min Lee and the ensuing case against her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed, who was later convicted and imprisoned. Suddenly, true crime was cool again.
Now, there's a new player in the world of true crime. The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst - which had already aired to great acclaim in the Us - finished its run on Sky Atlantic tonight (it was already available on demand so, »

Amy Adams drop dead gorgeous on Oscars' Red Carpet Amy Adams at the 83rd Academy Awards Looking drop dead gorgeous, Amy Adams is pictured above donning a scintillating blue dress while arriving at the 2011 Oscar ceremony, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in the fast-thumping heart of Hollywood. Adams was – for the third time in six years (more info below) – a Best Supporting Actress nominee. This time around, she was shortlisted for her performance in David O. Russell's The Fighter, a generally well-regarded and surprisingly successful (in the U.S.) boxing drama that earned fellow supporting actress Melissa Leo the evening's Oscar. Another The Fighter actor, Christian Bale (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar statuette. In fact, the film's only major cast member left without an Oscar nomination in the acting categories was lead Mark Wahlberg (pictured with wife) – though he did »

While the Cannes festival will see a starry universe of stars on the red carpet, as Matthew McConaughey (“The Sea of Trees”), Cate Blanchett (“Carol”), Benicio Del Toro (“Sicario”), Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard (“Macbeth”) are expected, indie market mavens are asking, “Where are the Bruce Willises, the Gerard Butlers?” as one distributor lamented.
For the world’s independent film industry, completed movies are one thing, but the big driver remains projects pre-sold at script stage to international distributors.
On the eve of the Cannes film festival and market, buyers and sellers have many questions: Will this be the year that Netflix and Amazon scoop up a significant number of titles? Why haven’t more projects been announced? Where are the bigger-budget market staples? Where are the action titles?
Indeed, with a clutch of sales companies not announcing many or any Cannes titles by early in the week, speculation was »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.
If you’re an action hero, pulling off daring rescues and badass escapes is just another day at the office. The rescue has been the prototypical action scene since humans have been able to put pen to paper. From Tarzan swinging in on a vine to Iron Man flying in on his jets, a hero isn’t a hero unless he can swoop in and save the damsel or the day. The only thing more exciting is if the clock is ticking on his escape. Whether it’s from a burning building, »
