Archer Delivers Season 7 Teaser In The Form Of Magnum P.I Opening Credits

4 February 2016 5:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you needed any further proof that Archer is the greatest TV animated series currently on air, the team behind the show has released a teaser for its seventh season, recreating – frame for frame – the opening credits sequence of the 1980s TV series, Magnum P.I. For that alone, Academies and Guilds should simply give all their awards to Archer, right now.

For the edification of anyone under the age of 25, Magnum P.I was a hugely popular, award-winning action-adventure series that ran for eight seasons, from 1980 – 1988. Following the exploits of the titular private detective based in Hawaii, the show turned Tom Selleck into a household name, and the strains of its bouncy theme tune are sure to warm the heart of an entire generation of fans. It is not difficult to see why the team behind Archer chose Magnum P.I for homage, as the two shows share a »

"Archer" S7 Gets A "Magnum Pi" Trailer

1 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

FX have finally released the first trailer for the seventh season of Archer, this one a near shot-for-shot homage to the iconic opening credits of the 1980s Tom Selleck-led detective drama "Magnum P.I." which are also included below for comparison. I've included both U.S. (geolocked) and internationally available versions below:

The insanely filthy and hilarious series returns for a seventh season in a format which is being kept under wraps for now, though is tipped to be another "Archer Vice"-style break from routine following the events of the sixth season finale. Could this indicate they're becoming a private detective firm for hire? "Archer" returns March 31st.

On this day in pop culture history: Disney’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ premiered

29 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

57 years ago today, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty premiered at the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. It was the last film based on a fairy tale that the House of Mouse made for over 30 years, until 1989’s The Little Mermaid, since Sleeping Beauty underperformed at the box office, leading to massive layoffs at Disney. The successful release of 101 Dalmatians in 1961 ended up saving Disney Animation. Though Sleeping Beauty wasn’t a hit at its debut, the film’s become a beloved Disney classic, with Aurora in her pink dress (you win, Flora) prominent among the lineup of Disney princesses, and with Maleficent now an iconic animated villain. Maleficent got her own movie starring Angelina Jolie in 2014. Other notable January 29 happenings in pop culture history: • 1845: Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. • 1942: BBC Radio first aired “Desert Island Discs.” Still on the air today, »

The 10 Best Cartoon Mustaches of All-Time

26 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Mustaches for men are incredibly hard to pull off. For every one guy who can embrace his inner Nick Offerman and Tom Selleck and look good with a ‘stache, there are twenty other dudes who look like creepy, “Free Candy” van drivers. Interestingly, however, cartoon characters don’t seem to have this problem. In fact, most cartoon characters that have mustaches have some pretty sweet ones, no matter how ridiculous or over-the-top they really are. At the end of the day, these characters’ mustaches only enhance their already cartoonish personalities rather detracting or distracting from them.Here are the 10 best cartoon

Review: Russ Meyer's "Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls" (1970) And "The Seven Minutes" (1971); Double Feature Release From Arrow Films

25 January 2016 3:28 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Darren Allison

(This review pertains to a region 2 UK release). 

Mark Robson’s Valley of the Dolls (1967) became something of commercial success, despite being generally panned by the critics. Following the murder of Sharon Tate, the film was re-released in 1969 and once again proved to be a success with audiences. In December 1969, filming began on Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970), a film that was intended as a direct sequel to Robson’s movie. Jacqueline Susann, the original author of Valley of the Dolls had been approached to write a screenplay, but declined the offer. Instead, director Russ Meyer and film critic Roger Ebert, took on and completed the task in just six weeks. Ebert described it as ‘a satire of Hollywood conventions’ while Meyer leant more towards ‘a serious melodrama, a rock musical […]and a moralistic expose of the nightmarish world of Show Business’.

This film is set around a female band, »

Dominic Purcell on Bringing Heat Wave to 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow'

21 January 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ever since taking on the role of the Flash's flame-obsessive enemy Mick "Heat Wave" Rory, Dominic Purcell's career is en fuego, and things are only heating up as his character joins his partner-in-crime Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) as the two most unlikely "Legends of Tomorrow," the villainous portion of a mismatched, time-traveling band of heroes hoping to avert an apocalyptic catastrophe in the DC Comics-derived spinoff series.

Purcell joined Moviefone to reveal exactly how incendiary things are about to get for the wisecracking, flamethrower, including a shifting dynamic with his longtime criminal cohort... and maybe the possibility for romance?

Moviefone: Who is the Heat Wave that we know from "The Flash" becoming in the context of "Legends of Tomorrow"?

Dominic Purcell: We're exploring different components of Mick Rory. Indirectly, he's extremely funny. Just so you know, I'm unaware of what's going on. I just go to work. »

Blu-ray Review – Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (1970)

18 January 2016 2:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, 1970.

Directed by Russ Meyer.

Starring Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers, Marcia McBroom, John Lazar, Duncan McLeod, Michael Blodgett, Erica Gavin, Phyllis Davis, Edy Williams, Harrison Page, David Gurian, Jim Inglehart, Charles Napier.

Synopsis:

An all-girl rock band arrive in Hollywood with dreams of stardom but find themselves sucked into a world of decadent and debauched behaviour.

The 1960s is a decade that many films have depicted in various ways, thanks to the transgressive fashions, politics and art that made the era what it was, but all too often these are films that were made afterwards that look back through rose-tinted glasses. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls went into production in the closing weeks of 1969 and neatly summed up a time, place and attitude that reflected the whole decade, beginning with the innocence of youth and good intentions before sinking into the depravity of sex, »

New CBS Entertainment Chief Vows to Boost Reality and Diversity on Network

12 January 2016 10:21 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Glenn Geller introduced himself himself to the Television Critics Association on Tuesday with a memorable description of his background: “I’m just a gay guy from Indiana who doesn’t play basketball.”

Geller had a smooth outing in his first major media appearance since his appointment in September as CBS Entertainment president. He told the TCA crowd at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif. that he was a big fan of reality TV and hoped to bring more unscripted fare to CBS’ air. He easily fielded questions about the fate of various CBS shows, from the end of “Mike & Molly” and possible end of “Person of Interest” and “The Good Wife” to expressing his enthusiasm for shows including “Supergirl” and “Madam Secretary.”

Geller made a point of mentioning his husband early on in his opening remarks, and he delivered his “gay guy from Indiana” laugh line with confidence. When »
