Hoping to replicate the success of History's 2012 Emmy-winning, ratings record-breaking miniseries "Hatfields & McCoys," the channel is pairing up with sister networks A&E and Lifetime on a new period piece this year, "Bonnie & Clyde." The two-part series will be simulcast on all three networks later this year, with Bruce Beresford ("Tender Mercies," "Driving Miss Daisy") directing from a screenplay by Joe Batteer and John Rice. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are the executive producers.

Katie Holmes has maintained a relatively low-key persona in the aftermath of her divorce from Tom Cruise last summer, but now she's getting back to business with her first movies since 2011's "Jack and Jill" and the ReelzChannel miniseries "The Kennedys." Photos from the set of one of those movies -- the upcoming "Mania Days" -- have surfaced, featuring Holmes dashing through a fountain with co-star Luke Kirby while clad in a wet T-shirt.
"Mania Days" depicts two manic depressives who meet in a psychiatric ward and embark on a romance. The movie is written and directed by Paul Dalio, who made his feature-film debut with the 2012 Bulgarian movie "Faith, Love and Whiskey." Spike Lee serves as a producer.

Today marks the 79th anniversary of the death of notorious outlaw couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, and as such, History is releasing a few photos from their upcoming miniseries, Bonnie & Clyde, which will be simulcast on History, Lifetime and A&E later this year. The miniseries has been in production for years, with an incredible amount of starts and stops (and a lot of recasting -- remember when Hillary Duff was set to play Bonnie? She was then replaced by Lindsay Pulsipher, who played the cat girl on True Blood …). History finally settled on a winning combination of Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) and ethereal beauty Holliday Grainger (The Borgias) to play the infamous couple, who were iconically portrayed in the 1967 film by Faye Dunaway and Warren Beaty. Hit the jump for the images and more. The photos depict Grainger as perhaps a more glamorous version of Bonnie than »

Crime dramas on ITV, they're like buses – you wait for one ... you know how it goes. Three in four days by my count, all of which in some way resemble certain BBC shows. Well you get copycat crime, why not copycat crime drama? So the strange Murder on the Home Front on Thursday was a bit Waking the Dead and a bit Silent Witness but set in 1940, maybe to lure in a historical fiction/period drama/Call The Midwife audience as well. Then Life of Crime on Friday, about a female fed fighting her shouty misogynist colleagues (sexist pigs?) in the 80s to a soundtrack of Culture Club and Duran Duran, was basically Ashes to Ashes minus the sci-fi.
And now this – The Suspicions of Mr Whicher (ITV, Sunday) – all murky Victorian London streets, dodgy geezers with mutton chops drinking »

"The Host" hit theaters on March 29 and earned just $47 million worldwide. What if everything you love was taken from you in the blink of an eye? »
For those still not convinced that superhero movies are the current coin of the realm for serious actors in Hollywood, consider this: Last year's "The Dark Knight Rises," produced by DC Entertainment, featured four Oscar winners in its cast (Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Marion Cotillard) and Anne Hathaway, who would go on to win her very own trophy at this year's Academy Awards ceremony. This is to say nothing of the rest of the cast, which included past Oscar nominees like Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson and Tom Conti; most movies that fall under the nomenclature of "Oscar bait" would be happy to have half as many nominees to trumpet.
Over at Marvel Studios, this trend continues to thrive. "Iron Man 3" stars four-time nominee and past Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley in a key role, and the upcoming "Captain America" sequel co-stars Robert Redford. (Like Kingsley, Redford »

Double bourbon is fine, Walter."
As a baby cinephile in the 1980s I grew up with Body Heat (1981) as my noir of choice. Before I had any biblical knowledge of my own, I was utterly enthralled by Kathleen Turner's come-hither challenge and roaming hands, William Hurt's 'not-too-smart' insatiable lust and that broken window in a sticky Florida summer. For reasons that seem immature/absurd now, I avoided Double Indemnity for many years afterwards feeling 'I'd already seen it'. Never mind that Body Heat was less a remake than an "inspired by" or that Body Heat's reign as the Best of the Neo Noirs does nothing to diminish the bewitching "rotten to the core" vortex of Double Indemnity's scheming plot and sexual shenanigans.
Different noirs for different eras. But the long shadow that Body Heat cast on my early views »

The casting of the great Ben Kingsley as the chief villain in Iron Man 3 is the kind of thing that raised eyebrows all over the internet -- is this our next great comic book movie villain? Although the jury is still out on Kingsley (the film doesn't even open in North America until May 3), it's time to prepare for Kingsley's performance by taking a look back at the best comic book movie villains of all time. After all, he's got some fine company to keep in this category. A special note: when it came to making this list, the decision was to skew toward more "traditional" comic book villains. After all, if we were to include every movie based on a comic in this discussion, we'd have to make room for William Hurt in A History of Violence and Jude Law in...

Film: "The Host"; Cast: Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons, William Hurt, Diane Kruger, Chandler Canterbury, Boyd Holbrook and Frances Fisher; Director: Andrew Niccol; Rating: **1/2 - romantic sci-fi entertainer.
Soon on the trails of Tom Cruise's "Oblivion", here is another science-fiction film that deals with aliens. But unlike "Oblivion", this one is shades tolerable and entertaining. Based on Stephenie Meyer's novel of the same name, "The Host" has a similar concept from "Invasion of Body Snatchers".
The film begins with a voiceover telling us that at some futuristic time, "The Earth is at peace. There is no hunger.. »

Smith to Become Stewart's Next Leading Man? Please scroll down for a fully revised version of this article, following conflicting information from Variety's Justin Kroll and former Variety columnist Jeff Sneider, currently writing for TheWrap. Here's the original version of the piece: Kristen Stewart may have a brand new leading man, in case a Variety report as fully accurate. After former leading man Ben Affleck's departure earlier this year (more details here), Stewart was left all alone in writer-directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra's Focus, the story of a young and inexperienced con woman who becomes attached to an older, more experienced con man. A Warner Bros. release (in case all goes well), the project was supposed to have begun filming this month (see more details here). (Pictured above: Smith in M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fier After Earth, co-starring his son Jaden) According to the Variety article on Smith's casting, »

A History of Violence, 2005.
Directed by David Cronenberg.
Based upon the 1997 graphic novel of the same name by writer John Wagner and artist Vince Locke, David Cronenberg's acclaimed drama A History of Violence stars Viggo Mortensen as a mild-mannered small town diner owner who is forced to confront his criminal past after making national headlines when he kills two robbers in self defense.
Premiering in competition at Cannes, A History of Violence was well received by audiences and critics and went on to earn two Oscar nominations in 2006, with Josh Olson up for Best Adapted Screenplay and William Hurt (who would later portray General 'Thunderbolt' Ross in 2008's The Incredible Hulk »

Exclusive: Media Rights Capital has teamed up with its Ted partner Universal Pictures to co-finance Highwaymen, a drama about the Texas Rangers that hunted and gunned down Depression Era bank robbers Bonnie & Clyde. The film is coming together for a first quarter 2014 production start. John Lee Hancock will direct and Liam Neeson and Woody Harrelson are being courted to star. The John Fusco-scripted drama focuses on legendary lawman Frank Hamer, who was coaxed by a consortium of banks to assemble a posse and end the robbery reign of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow in the 1930s. Casey Silver is producing. Hamer was an old style Texas Ranger who’d survived 100 gunfights and killed 53 people, and he focused on the duo after their gang organized a jail break and killed a guard. They’ve been talking about this feature for awhile, but they will most certainly come after a miniseries »
