20 new fall TV shows to get excited about

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Once upon a time, conventional wisdom in TV suggested that any shows debuting outside of the fall were in some way lesser than the ones launching in September and October. Thanks to cable, streaming, and even a transformation of the way the broadcast networks schedule things, the roles have almost entirely reversed: now the really special stuff gets saved for January or later, while a lot of what's scheduled for a more traditional launch can be viewed as cannon fodder. This TV season, for instance, Fox is saving its revivals of 24 and Prison Break for 2017, and the CW is doing the same with its highest-profile new series, Riverdale. But there's still a lot of promising stuff coming this fall across broadcast, cable, and streaming — not just the welcome return of shows like Rectify, You're the Worst, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but a far more exciting batch of new series than were »

Film Review: The Intervention

26 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Anxieties of thirtysomethings are a tale as old as time. A few weeks ago the melancholic Joshy reminded us of the challenges young men face growing up today, and it was only about three decades ago that Glenn Close and William Hurt gave us The Big Chill. So another movie about close friends dealing with life and each other is not necessarily an innovative concept. But a new indie flick from Sundance, The Intervention, delivers a worthwhile and funny twist on the concept with its gut wrenchingly honest dialogue and a subtly brilliant performance by Melanie Lynskey from Two and a Half Men.

Lynskey’s character, Annie, has summoned her lifelong friends to a weekend getaway at their pal Jesse’s estate outside Savannah. Jesse is played by Clea DuVall, who also directed the film. But it’s not fun and games Annie has in mind. She’s coopted the others, »

Red Hulk almost featured in Captain America: Civil War, Madbomb plot was considered

25 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Captain America: Civil War, it was rumoured on several occasions that Thunderbolt Ross’ angry alter-ego Red Hulk was set to feature in the movie; obviously this turned out to be false, but directors Joe and Anthony Russo have revealed to Comic Book that Red Hulk was considered, but was ultimately dropped to avoid overstuffing.

“We had so many characters in that movie as it was. We consider everything, obviously, but with so many characters in that movie as it was to try and entertain adding another character and to get to the Red Hulk, you have to add a back story. You have to substantiate the narrative to get to that. [Thaddeus Ross], on our list of priorities, he was there sort of as the government’s agenda and not to add another complicated super powered character to the mix.”

Captain America: Civil War Almost Had Iron Spider and Red Hulk

24 August 2016 8:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After dominating at the box office this summer, with a whopping $1.1 billion haul during its theatrical run, Marvel is getting ready to bring Captain America: Civil War home with a Digital HD release on September 2 ahead of the Blu-ray and DVD debut on September 13. Earlier today, we showed you a deleted scene and two new previews that shed some light on Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Vision (Paul Bettany), who make up a small part of this massive ensemble cast. As it turns out though, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo revealed that two different Marvel Comics characters were almost included in the movie.

When production started on Captain America: Civil War last May, Marvel Studios released a full cast list, which revealed the surprising news that Ant-Man star Paul Rudd will return as Scott Lang, and William Hurt will reprise his role from 2008's The Incredible Hulk as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross. »

The Russos Nearly Included Iron Spider And Red Hulk In Captain America: Civil War

24 August 2016 2:41 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During the Sony Hack, we learned that one of the possible plans for the wall-crawler's Marvel Cinematic Universe debut would be for him to appear in the Iron Spider costume he wore in the Civil War comic book. That would have obviously helped this new take on the character stand out from previous iterations, but while he received some tech upgrades in Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man obviously ended up looking pretty much like he was torn straight out of the pages of the comics.  Asked in a recent interview about its possible inclusion, Joe Russo said: "That falls in that category of anything's possible. We consider everything." However, far more interesting than that is the filmmaker's comments about the Red Hulk. It sounds like they came very close to including that version of the character - who was rumoured to appear when William Hurt was confirmed to return.  "We »

Amazon Still Facing Hurdles as Prime Video Volume Grows

7 August 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon’s volume of original TV shows and movies is growing at a fast clip. But the world’s largest retailer is still battling a disconnect with some consumers in providing easy access to its menu of original content.

That list includes David E. Kelley, the prominent exec producer of its new Billy Bob Thornton-William Hurt legal drama series “Goliath.”

“I am a little daunted by the fact that Amazon shows aren’t the easiest to watch,” Kelley admitted Sunday following the show’s session at the Television Critics Association press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

Many newer connected TV sets come with the Amazon Prime app already set on the home screen, making it easy for members to stream shows in their living rooms. But the app is not supported yet on other interfaces such Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast because of business issues. For viewers, that »
