1 May 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has ordered three series for the 2015-16 season, Variety has learned: “Chicago Fire” spinoff “Chicago Med,” crime conspiracy thriller “Blindspot” and medical soap “Heartbreaker.”

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

On the Hunt: The Films of James B. Harris

8 April 2015 9:46 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

CopAt the ripe age of twenty-six—the two were born within days of each other in 1928—James B. Harris and Stanley Kubrick formed Harris-Kubrick Productions. With Kubrick leading the charge behind the camera and Harris acting as the right-hand-man producer, the duo completed three major critical successes: The Killing (1956), Paths of Glory (1957), and Lolita (1962). But where Kubrick’s subsequent work has achieved a supreme, hall-of-fame stature, Harris’s own directorial career—consisting of five excellent movies made across a four-decade span—remains, despite the valiant effort of a few notable English-language critics (Michael Atkinson, Jonathan Rosenbaum), on the relative sidelines. The latest attempt to boost Harris’s reputation: BAMcinématek’s week-long retrospective of Harris’s producing and directing output, selected by “Overdue” co-programmers Nick Pinkerton and Nicolas Rapold.Harris and Kubrick stopped working together amidst a pre-production disagreement during the making of what would become Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb »

Stop in the Name of Love: Top Ten Forbidden Romances in the Movies

13 March 2015 6:12 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Human beings and their affectionate vibes are something special. After all, we as individuals are going to love who we feel are worth loving. However, society demands that the protocol of loving should be straight-forward and “natural”. The rule of thumb: stick to your own kind! Whether it is being loyal to your own kind racially or culturally or either with your own age range the expectation of romance is defined…do not make waves and keep things safe and mainstream!

Well, human beings can be also unpredictable and live for going against the grain especially certain characters and personalities in the movies. Love and romance make for great film fodder but when the notion of such on-screen amorous activities takes its theme to a whole new challenging level then the gloves are off!

Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport.

Was Mo'Nique Really Offered the Role of Cookie on Empire Before Taraji P. Henson?

3 March 2015 2:55 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Everyone wants a piece of the Cookie! Remember when it was revealed that Wesley Snipes was originally approached to play Lucious Lyon on Fox's monster-hit Empire, before Taraji P. Henson told co-creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong she would only do the show if they went with Terrence Howard instead? Now, Mo'Nique, who worked with Daniels on the film Precious, which won her an Oscar, is claiming Henson wasn't the first choice for the breakout role of Cookie Lyon: she's saying she was. In an interview with Access Hollywood, Mo'Nique claimed, "Mr. Daniels offered me the part of Cookie, and I have the emails and the sides to go along with it, and what he said was, 'I'm new to »

10 Actors Seeking a Comeback This Pilot Season

3 March 2015 10:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wesley SnipesIf this list were a competition, Wesley Snipes would win this hands-down: the "Blade" actor is lining up his first potential starring role since finishing up a three-year prison sentence (for tax fraud) in April 2013. After competing with (and ultimately losing to) Terrence Howard for the lead in Fox's smash hit "Empire" last year, Snipes has nailed down a starring role in the NBC drama pilot "Endgame." He stars opposite Philip Winchester ("Strike Back") in the Las Vegas-set thriller, which examines the convergence of crime, gambling and conspiracy in Sin City. It comes from "The Blacklist" executive producers John Davis and John Fox, and the description for Snipes' character, Johnson, reads as follows: "An unflappable guy with a dry sense of humor. Highly intelligent and analytical. Mysterious and unreadable." Once the star of the hottest vampire franchise around, Snipes is hoping "Endgame" is the path »

Wesley Snipes Inks First-Look Development Deal with Sony Pictures Television

2 March 2015 11:12 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I expected that, after his release from prison last year, Wesley Snipes would be in heavy demand! But that hasn't quite been the case - at least, not yet. Other than "Expendables 3," which was released last summer, he doesn't really have any definite big screen commitments, which may be why he's making a move to the small screen. After signing up for what could be his first TV regular series role (assuming it's picked up as a full series), in NBC's thriller pilot "Endgame," Mr Snipes has inked a first-look deal with the studio behind the pilot, Sony Pictures Television, that will see the actor develop and produce a diverse slate of projects, via his Maandi »

Other than "Expendables 3," which was released last summer, he doesn't have much else coming to the big screen (he's attached to star in a heist drama titled "Five Minutes to Live"), which may be why he's making this move to the small screen, in what will be his first TV regular series role.
