23 June 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There is never a “dull day” for Tatiana Maslany, the actress who plays five different clones on BBC America’s “Orphan Black.” “I’m always getting to shift characters,” Maslany told TheWrap. “We’re always shifting genres depending on whose storyline we’re following.” The series follows con artist Sarah Manning (Maslany), who discovers that she has clones living all over North America and Europe.

The American West Clip: Burt Reynolds and Robert Redford Talk Jesse James

17 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We know how much you love watching the American West come alive on AMC's Hell on Wheels.

For five seasons you have watched the struggle to build railroad that will make travel between the east and west a reality and not necessarily a death sentence due to the hardships of traveling by horseback and on foot.

An all new episode of AMC’s limited series, The American West, airs this Saturday, June 18th at 10/9c.

On the second episode, “Two Front War” – executive produced by Robert Redford and Stephen David, and directed by John EalerJesse James targets the railroads.

Custer is sent on a secret mission in Sioux Territory.

Grant deals with growing unrest in the west and south.

There was so much going on during that time, it's almost hard to believe, isn't it?

But if we're going to compare and contrast to what's happening on Hell on Wheels, »

Here's why Jude Law turned down the role of Superman

9 June 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's a famous story about Warren Beatty turning down the role of Superman (which ultimately went to newcomer Christopher Reeve) after taking the suit home for the weekend and deciding he looked ridiculous. That's a solid reason! Now you can add Jude Law to the list of actors who were unwilling to sacrifice their so-called dignity to play the Man of Steel; in a new interview with Stephen Colbert, the actor says he turned down the role in the project that eventually became Bryan Singer's Superman Returns partly because he's English ("I don't know, it just didn't seem to fit") but also, mostly, because he couldn't stomach the idea of wearing the red-and-blue spandex over the course of an entire movie. "This director was very keen to meet, and impressed it upon me and I was actually out in California, and he said, 'look, you gotta try the suit on, »

Robert Altman's murder tale reeks of insider access and Hollywood hipster Bs; its main claim to greatness is its fifty-plus star cameos. It may no longer seem as smart as it looked in 1992, but they don't make 'em any slicker than this.

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Robert Altman's filmography is undergoing what looks like a full retrospective through Criterion; even the 1975 title Nashville came out not long ago. This very successful later picture marks a revitalization of the director's career. It's sort of a Kafkaesque spin on Hail, »

Christopher Lombardo & Jeff Kirschner Give Their Diagnosis of Healthcare Horror Movies

27 May 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Guest authors Christopher Lombardo and Jeff Kirschner of Really Awful Movies share their diagnosis of healthcare horror movies with Daily Dead readers.] When the Us was overhauling its healthcare system, much to-do was made about so-called “death panels,” government committees who would decide who lives and dies based on asset allocation. As far as healthcare horrors are concerned, it turns out that playing God is very real, but luckily only in film and Sarah Palin’s fright-filled imagination. Nefarious nurses, murderous docs, and psychopathic hallway stalkers in horror movies have effectively put end-of-life issues at the forefront, but not in a way that can be reasonably debated: your life, their ending of it.

We’ve decided to weigh in on the healthcare hullabaloo by looking at fictional settings that make One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest look like the height of patient-centered thinking. So sit back and self-medicate with whatever’s in the fridge (or better still, the medicine cabinet) and take these seven healthcare horrors—but don’t call us in the morning. »

20 years ago today: The ‘Doctor Who’ TV movie was a light in the dark 1990s

27 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

20 years ago today, the Doctor Who TV movie premiered in the U.K., giving us the lone official appearance of the Eighth Doctor and the end of Sylvester McCoy’s tenure as the Seventh Doctor. Aside from spoof appearances in a couple charity specials, Doctor Who: The Television Movie was the only new piece of televised Doctor Who content in the dark period that was the 1990s. The series had been canceled in 1989, though novels continued the Seventh Doctor’s adventures. McCoy returned to his role as the Time Lord for the beginning of the 1996 TV movie. The Doctor is caught in a gang shoot-out, and in a hospital afterward, he regenerates into Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor. It was McGann’s only appearance as the Doctor — the role would next be played by Christopher Eccleston when the series was revived in 2005. With the TV movie, McCoy’s Doctor »

Film Review: Everybody Wants Some!!

13 May 2016 5:54 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Richard Linklater once again casts his outwardly laid-back yet deceptively astute gaze on those loitering around the edge of adulthood with Everybody Wants Some!! - a joyous and often uproarious portrayal of college-age adolescence and the alluring freedom that brings. Much like the frosty and subdued welcome the film's central character receives when first moving in to this new college residence, the film itself does take a little time to find its groove. Once it does however, that effortless charm evident in the majority of Linklater's oeuvre comes to the fore - with more lip foliage on display than a week-long Burt Reynolds retrospective.

Mother’S Day – Review

28 April 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Sappiness overflows in Mother’S Day, an assembly-line rom-com with little on its mind beyond clichés and predictable formula. 81-year old director Garry Marshall, still mining the calendar after the similar New Year’S Eve and Valentine’S Day, has gathered a bouquet of celebrity movie stars including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, and Kate Hudson, and shuffled them into tiresome skits about motherhood gone right and wrong. Mother’S Day is a shallow and sickly-sweet offering best avoided.

Jennifer Aniston has the largest role in Mother’S Day as Sandy, a divorced mother of two sons whose ex-husband Henry (Timothy OIyphant) has married the much younger Tina (Shay Mitchell), who tries too hard to be a cool stepmom. The story jumps between Sandy’s dilemma and those of a dozen others, such as childless Miranda (Julia Roberts), an uptight QVC superstar who has motherhood forced on her by »

AMC Sets Return Date for Final Season of ‘Hell on Wheels,’ New Series ‘The American West’

27 April 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC is giving fans of Westerns a treat this summer, with the final batch of “Hell on Wheels” episodes to be joined on Saturdays by the series premiere of the limited event series “The American West.”

The network announced Wednesday that “Hell on Wheels” will ride off into the sunset after its final seven episodes, which kick off Saturday, June 11 at 9. It’s the end of the line for Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) and his work on America’s first transcontinental railroad, and the final push to finish brings with it a reckoning for Bohannon and the men standing in his path: the bloodthirsty Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl), the mercenary Chang (Byron Mann) and the rapacious Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney).

On average during its fourth season, “Hell on Wheels” delivered 3.5 million viewers per episode, including 1.3 million adults 25-54, according to Nielsen’s Live+7 estimates. The show is consistently one of the »

Staring Down The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

24 April 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I live in Los Angeles, and my residency here means that a lot of great film programming-- revival screenings, advance looks at upcoming releases and vital, fascinating glimpses at unheralded, unexpected cinema from around the world—is available to me on a week-by-week basis. But I’ve never been to Cannes. Toronto, Tribeca, New York, Venice, Berlin, Sundance, SXSW, these festivals are all events that I have yet to be lucky enough to attend, and I can reasonably expect that it’s probably going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. I never attended a film festival of any kind until I made my way to the outskirts of the Mojave Desert for the  Lone Pine Film Festival in 2006, which was its own kind of grand adventure, even if it wasn’t exactly one for bumping shoulders with critics, stars and fanatics on the French Riviera.

Mr T: The Man With The Gold - what we learned

20 April 2016 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Mr T's 1985 autobiography, The Man With The Gold, is jam-packed with tree-felling, door-smashing, people-throwing anecdotes...

“I live by the Golden Rule – the man with the gold rules.”

Mr. T. My lifelong hero. A man who has and thrown more “suckers” around than an octopus in a washing machine, and taught aviophobes everywhere that “I aint gettin’ on no plane” is a phrase that can be dished out with attitude.

But what do we actually know about this 80s legend besides the gold chains, Mohawk and fool-based catchphrases?

I suppose we could just trawl through the big man’s Wikipedia profile. It’s surprisingly extensive. But when we’re talking about a lyrical genius responsible for phrases like “I was on him like ugly on an ape” and “the entire place got quiet, so quiet you could hear a mosquito urinate on cotton”, it’s best to go straight to the source. »

Burt Reynolds Reveals His Mom Opposed His Marriage to Loni Anderson: 'She Was Shaking Her Head 'No' as I Walked Down the Aisle

Burt Reynolds has admitted that marrying Loni Anderson was a mistake - and it turns out, his mom thought so too. Reynolds opened up to Men's Health about his relationship with Anderson, admitting there were warning signs that their marriage wouldn't last. "I remember when we got married, it was in a chapel I'd built specifically for our wedding," he said. "I was walking down the aisle, and Perry Como was walking with me." The actor, 80, said as he turned to look at his mom, she was "shaking her head 'No'" at him. "I didn't pay attention, but my mom was always right, »

‘Bandit,’ Documentary on Iconic Burt Reynolds Film, Gets Nashville Spotlight

14 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jesse Moss’ “The Bandit,” which will screen at the Nashville Film Festival in partnership with Country Music Television (Cmt) and Variety magazine, combines two themes: the making of the enormously successful film, “Smokey and the Bandit,” and the long-time relationship of its two principals, director Hal Needham and star Burt Reynolds, who played one of the two title roles opposite Jackie Gleason.

The filmmaking tandem were longtime acquaintances and collaborators, with Needham standing in for Reynolds on many of the hair-raising stunts that were emblematic of Reynolds’ films. When Needham came to Reynolds with a script he had written about beer smugglers, the actor had his doubts but eventually agreed to take the lead in his best friend’s film, resulting in one of the top-grossing releases of 1977, hauling in approximately $127 million, and bested only by “Star Wars” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”
