Sneak Peek new key art and synopsis from the upcoming NBC 'pirate' TV series "Crossbones", from Neil Cross (Luther"), and producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, starring John Malkovich as 'Blackbeard' the pirate :
"...it's 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where the diabolical pirate 'Edward Teach', aka. 'Blackbeard' reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. Part shantytown, part marauder's paradise, this is a place like no other on earth - and a mounting threat to international commerce.
"To gain control of this fearsome society, 'Tom Lowe', is sent to the buccaneers' haven to take down the brilliant and charismatic Blackbeard. But the closer Lowe gets, the more he finds that his quest is not so simple. Lowe can't help but admire the political ideals of Blackbeard, whose thirst for knowledge knows no bounds - and no law. »

Pilot season has come and gone, leaving in its wake ecstatic, employed actors, broken promises, dashed dreams, and disappointed viewers. The week preceding this year’s upfront presentations by the major TV networks was a particularly bloody one, with NBC canceling all of its freshman sitcoms and ABC pretending its entire spring lineup (“Red Widow,” “Family Tools”) never existed. But when the nets revealed their shiniest, latest toys to a roomful of journalists and potential ad buyers, they swept their past failures aside and promised viewers new wonders on their screens this fall. NBC has thrown its weight behind family comedies and high-concept dramas, with shows such as “The Michael J. Fox Show,” pirate drama “Crossbones” (starring John Malkovich), and Jonathan Rhys Meyers in “Dracula,” set in 19th-century New York. The Peacock has also shown a predilection for name talent this time around, green-lighting shows starring Sean Hayes (“Sean Saves »
Warm Bodies is hitting Blu-ray and DVD next month, and to celebrate the upcoming release, Summit Entertainment has released several clips that take a look at the filming of the flick. In particular, the first one is super amusing and looks into Nicholas Hoult and Rob Corddry learning to grunt effectively for their roles as zombies in the film. Hoult says that Corddry made it his goal to get the younger actor to crack up during the zombie scenes. Don.t take my word for it, though, check it out above before Warm Bodies hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 4. The second clip features other lead Teresa Palmer, who talks about the role she plays in the zombie-oriented film and the fun she had working with veteran actor John Malkovich. The clip gives fans a hint at what their working relationship is like, but unfortunately, it isn.t quite as »

We already know that director Michael Bay is revamping the franchise with Transformers 4, bringing in a whole new cast including Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, and Bingbing Li. An unconfirmed rumor has surfaced that reveals potential spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
According to unidentified sources, the director plans on bringing back the Dinobots from the 1980s Transformers animated series, including Grimlock. The report also indicates that one of the main villains will be a character named Lockdown, who possesses a ship full of decommissioned Transformers, including the Dinobots, who are reactivated by Optimus Prime. Both Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will reportedly ride the Dinobots Grimlock and a Pterandon (possibly Swoop) into battle in Hong Kong, which falls in line with the news from last month that the sequel will be partially shot in China.

While the sequel to "Red," the 2010 action comedy that starred Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich and Morgan Freeman as over-the-hill assassins, doesn't open until the middle of July, Lionsgate and producers Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are already plotting a third film, with screenwriting siblings Jon and Erich Hoeber back for a third go-around (according to the Hollywood Reporter). "Thank god!" said nobody. "Red" was based on the comic book miniseries by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner (although without much of the book's wit and explosive bursts of violence), the title standing for "retired extreme dangerous," and in its original film version, directed by Robert Schwentke, with a fair amount of visual flair. The end product of that film felt slightly watered down, with a number of concessions made to meet the seemingly impossible release date, like losing the distinctly funky music by Irish DJ and frequent Steven Soderbergh »

The second film finds Bruce back as retired black ops agent Frank Moses, trying to live a quieter life with girlfriend Sarah Ross (Mary-Louise Parker).
