Box-Office Alternatives: Deep Impact

26 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Its been a while since we've had a worthwhile disaster movie at the cineplex. Back in the 1970s, the genre was a staple of the summer movie season with audiences devouring multi-strand plots, which saw stars both old and new struggling for survival against any and every catastrophe an ambitious movie producer could think of.

Despite giving audiences some bona fide classics such as The Poseidon Adventure (1972) and The Towering Inferno (1974), the genre has been rather dead as of late with lackluster offerings such as Poseidon (a weak 2006 imitation of the far better original) and the overly confident 2012 (2009). Yet this week, the genre hopes for a resurgence with the impressive looking San Andreas (2015). Starring Dwayne Johnson, San Andreas details a rescue pilot’s frantic search for his family following the most powerful and devastating earthquake ever to hit the West Coast.

Madam Secretary, Ep. 1.18 to 1.22 confidently closes off its first year

10 May 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Madam Secretary, Season 1, Episodes 18-22

Created by Barbara Hall

Airs Sundays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

The final few episodes leading up to the season finale have been very episodic, with the season finale tying up all loose ends into a very satisfying conclusion. Each episode delivers an interesting and clear standalone crisis situation that is interwoven well with the ongoing narrative. The series as a whole has been one of the finest and consistently entertaining shows from last year’s fall lineup. Madam Secretary manages to keep interest by presenting honest and relateable characters in situations that are compelling and diverse, and has a strong perspective. This political procedural drama has truly grown into an impressive and worthy television staple that has earned its second season order.

The main thread that has been lingering in the background since the pilot has been Elizabeth McCord’s suspicion of foul play »

Talking To The Cast Of Madam Secretary At The Paley Center

5 May 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While there’s no shortage of political shows on television at the current moment, few capture life in Washington from such a relatable angle as Madam Secretary.

The CBS series follows university professor Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni), who is chosen as a successor when the Secretary of the State is killed in a mysterious accident. Over the course of the first season, we watch as she adapts to working in the White House while juggling family life with the support of her husband Matt (Tim Daly).

During a Paley Center event for the show, we had the chance to ask Leoni and Daly about their complex roles and how their characters have managed to stay true to themselves despite being thrust into the political sphere. Check out what they had to say in the video above and then head on down to the comments section to share your thoughts on »

Ratings: ‘Secrets & Lies’ Hits High in Finale as ABC Wins Sunday in Demos

4 May 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC, led by a season high for the finale of “Secrets & Lies” and getting a boost from the highest-rated “Revenge” of 2015, was the top broadcaster in key demos during all four hours of primetime on Sunday.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.4 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, 5.6 million viewers overall) continues to get the night off to a good start for ABC, winning its hour in all under-55 categories despite a week-to-week dip. It was followed by the season’s penultimate episode of “Once Upon a Time” (1.7/6 in 18-49, 5.2 million viewers overall), which was also on par with last week and led its timeslot.

“Secrets & Lies” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) matched the previous week’s series high in 18-49 and will adjust up to at least a 1.8 in the nationals; as it currently stands, it and “Once Upon a Time” are tied as »

With an anger translator backup, President Barack Obama may have had his best White House Correspondents’ Dinner so far on Saturday night. But for CBS' freshman political drama Madame Secretary, this was not a weekend it will want to remember. While Madam Secretary (1.0/3) was the most-watched show of Sunday night, the Téa Leoni-starring series bombed to the tune of a 29% decline among adults 18-49 from its last original April 12 (that episode actually ran from 8:16-9:16… »

2015 White House Correspondents' Dinner: All the Random Celeb Sightings!

26 April 2015 7:42 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The White House Correspondents' Dinner is the only event where you'll see the stars from "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones" mingling with YouTube sensations, politicians, supermodels and yes, even the President of the United States. It's one of the most random events of the year -- and last night's soiree was no different. The stars turned out in their most killer couture for the so-called "nerd prom," with Chrissy Teigen showing some serious leg and some cleavage in a stunning Zuhair Murad gown. Seriously, how gorgeous does John Legend's wife look? Naya Rivera used the occasion to show off her growing baby bump, glowing in a white Tadashi Shoji dress that accentuated her big belly. The "Glee" star and husband Ryan Dorsey are currently expecting their first child together. Other red carpet stunners included "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox and Mrs. Channing Tatum herself, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. »

Celebrity Couples Who Break Up and Make Up

12 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

This week, it was confirmed via People that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are indeed on a break. While we desperately hope against hope that these two get back together to be adorable and socially conscious forever, let’s look back on some other couples who took a break or two (or three) along the way to eternal happiness, or a fond (maybe not always so fond) farewell.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

Justin and Jessica split for a few months in 2011, but after calling her “the most significant person in my life” the two reconciled and are now married with a little TimberBiel on the way!

Katy Perry and John Mayer

These two were back on earlier this year after breaking up in 2014, but apparently they’re done again. Who knows if they’ll stay kaput this time?

Robin Wright and Ben Foster

Last year, the pair called off their engagement, »

Brett Ratner Making Mariah Carey Christmas Movie

8 April 2015 5:35 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Brett Ratner has teamed up with Mariah Carey to develop a new Christmas movie, which New Line Cinema already bought. At this point, very little is known about the project, except that it will focus on the holiday and a message that music can transport you back to happy times. The new movie is being written by David Diamond and David Weissman, who previously worked with Ratner on "The Family Man," starring Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni. The plan is to include songs from different artists, including Carrey. The Christmas holiday is special for Carey, who wrote and performed "All I Want for Christmas Is You," a 1994 tune that has sold more than 14 million copies globally to become the biggest holiday son in recent memory and the biggest international hit of Carey's career. »

Madam Secretary, Ep. 1.12-17 builds on good stories with a great cast

23 March 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Madam Secretary, Season 1, Episodes 12-17

Created by Barbara Hall

Airs Sundays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

Madam Secretary‘s first season has been built on the backbone of the mysterious murder of the former Secretary of State and the question of what he was involved in that would cause him to be murdered. The answers have been coming in slowly throughout the season, as Elizabeth McCord’s list of suspects are cut shorter and shorter. One of the main suspects that McCord had under investigation in the first half of the season was White House Chief of Staff Russell Jackson, whom she confronted with her suspicions in the mid season finale “Game On”, concluding that arc in away that fell in line with the tone of the series.

The show’s return has seen Russell Jackson brought into the loop, but not the President himself, as they all agree not »

Movistar Series Galvanizes U.S. TV Buys in Spain

10 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madrid –Giant Spanish telco Telefonica’s pay TV operator Movistar TV is making one of Spain’s highest-profile drives into U.S. TV content in the last 20 years, creaming dozens of high-quality TV series for its nre Svod service Movistar Series.

Latest announced deals take in CBS, HBO, Sony Pictures TV and ABC. More will follow. Launching Dec. 10, Ms currently offers 45 series. It aims to raise that number to 70 at least.

Telefonica launched a pay TV operator, Iptv service Imagenio, in Madrid and Barcelona in 2004. But it traditionally played second fiddle to the dominant pricey premium pay TV service Canal Plus Spain.

That has now changed. From 2013, Telefonica begun to load up on premium contents: the Roland Garros tennis tourney, Formula One, the Road Racing World Championship and then bought Canal Plus Spain outright in a $1.0 billion May 2014 deal which still has to be cleared by Spain’s anti-trust authorities. »
