William Fichtner crime drama Crossing Lines heading to Alibi

26 January 2015 3:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The first two seasons of Crossing Lines will air on Alibi.

The crime drama was previously exclusive to Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Crossing Lines features William Fichtner and Hunger Games star Donald Sutherland, and focuses on the workings of the International Criminal Court's special crime unit.

Adrian Wills, general manager for Alibi, said, "Crossing Lines is a smart and fast-paced crime drama peppered with great characters, intrigue and amazing international locations. It is a perfect fit for the channel and I'm confident it will prove compelling for our viewers."

Alexandra Finlay, head of acquisitions and co-productions, added: "Crossing Lines, headed by a stellar cast including Donald Sutherland and William Fichtner, is a stand out crime drama that will keep Alibi viewers on their toes and guessing throughout.

"It's a thriller with an international twist and will perfectly complement Alibi's existing slate of programmes."

Fichtner's previous credits include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Prison Break. »

'Inherent Vice' costume designer Mark Bridges finally got an Oscar nod for a PTA film

22 January 2015 2:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of my favorite Oscar nominations this year was Mark Bridges getting the call for his work on Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice." I only wish David Crank and Amy Wells could have joined him because the design of this film was out of sight (to say nothing of Robert Elswit's lush lensing). Still, it's sort of serendipitous that it's Bridges and Anderson (in the adapted screenplay category) representing the film, as like Elswit, their collaboration goes all the way back to the beginning, but unlike Elswit (who won the Oscar for "There Will Be Blood"), Bridges had yet to be recognized for a PTA movie. I talked to Bridges, who did get his own trip to Oscar's stage for "The Artist" a few years ago, about that and a whole lot more earlier this week. The research and engineering that went into bringing these costumes — and, by proxy, »

Flashback: 10 Years Ago, Keira Knightley and Rosamund Pike Were Family in 'Pride & Prejudice'

20 January 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Oscar nominees Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game) and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) are just two of the many Brits basking in the awards season glow this year. But these regal beauties go way back!

Ten years ago, Knightley and Pike turned heads playing the eldest Bennet sisters, Elizabeth and Jane, in the beloved 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen’s romantic tale Pride & Prejudice. Other members in the impressive ensemble included a fresh-faced Carey Mulligan, Jena Malone, Donald Sutherland and Dame Judi Dench.

Pride & Prejudice was universally praised in the U.K. ahead of its U.S. release, and a then-19 year old Knightley was hopeful the British film would resonate in the States.

Watch: Rosamund Pike Goes From Bond Girl to ‘Gone Girl’!

“It was so fantastic that it was received so well in England -- obviously it's my home country so I like that but yeah, I just hope people like it here! I’m sure »

Variety Critics Pick Their Favorite Film Sex Scenes

20 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With sex and Hollywood in the spotlight as the debut of Universal’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie approaching, Variety critics weigh in on their favorite movie sex scenes.

Justin Chang

 

“Don’t Look Now”

(Nicolas Roeg, 1973)

This notorious sequence, featuring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, comes feverishly close to capturing the close-quarters tenderness of a loving marriage.

 

“Late Marriage”

(Dover Kosashvili, 2001)

Ronit Elkabetz and Lior Ashkenazi star in one of the most unguarded and naturalistic sex scenes ever filmed, full of cranky pillow talk, playfully feigned orgasms and free-flowing nudity.

 

“The Dreamers”

(Bernardo Bertolucci, 2003)

A naked Eva Green forcibly seduces a shy Michael Pitt, who is both aghast and aroused — a fair assessment of the viewer’s reaction as well.

Scott Foundas

 

Last Tango in Paris

(Bernardo Bertolucci, 1972)

The butter scene ensured notoriety, but another moment — two lonely people naked on a mattress, trying to bring each other to »

NBC licensed the first season of Crossing Lines and aired it during the summer of 2013. It didn't perform well in the ratings so the network cancelled the show. However, it was a success in other international markets so a second season was produced.

First season regulars William Fichtner, Donald Sutherland, Marc Lavoine, Tom Wlaschiha, Gabriella Pession and Richard Flood returned, along with Lara Rossi, who was introduced late in the first season. Guest stars for the season include Carrie-Anne Moss and Ray Stevenson.

Trailers from Hell on Paul Mazursky's 'Alex in Wonderland'

12 January 2015 10:33 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Riding high after the tremendous success of his 1969 hit "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice," Paul Mazursky kicked off the ’70s with this self-indulgent ode to his own creative block. Not coincidentally, Alex concerns the travails of a director trying to top his last hit. Felliniesque in the worst way (even though the great director cameos), the film nevertheless features a stellar cast including Donald Sutherland, Jeanne Moreau and a special appearance by Larry Edmund’s Bookshop. »

Paul Gross goes down Hyena Road in exclusive trailer for Canadian war drama

8 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper heading to theatres next week, cinema’s gaze has shifted to the Middle East, as the eighty-four-year-old director and former pretend cowboy partners up with Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) to tell the story of Chris Kyle, the sniper with the most confirmed kills in U.S. military history.

But what about Canada’s soldiers in the Middle East?

Canadian actor, writer, and director Paul Gross follows up on his Wwi drama, 2008’s Passchendaele, with three different stories of modern warfare all in one movie – Hyena Road.

Don’t expect the romanticism of Passchendaele. Gross will be relying on some of his own overseas experience. The actor spent two weeks at an operating base thirty kilometers away from Kandahar City when Canada’s combat mission was nearing its end in Afghanistan. As such, Hyena Road’s script is principally based on interviews he had with »

How Jennifer Aniston Is Connected to Every Golden Globe Nominee in 6 Degrees or Less

6 January 2015 7:24 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Move over Kevin Bacon! When it comes to working with everyone in Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston may be the actor to beat.

While Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- an idea that came from the actor himself when, in 1994, he told Premiere magazine that he’s worked with everybody -- has become the ultimate trivia game, it may be time to re-think who’s actually at the nexus.

Thanks in large part to Friends -- the former NBC sitcom now streaming on Netflix -- Aniston worked with a number of stars well before they were famous. And in the years since the series ended, Aniston has shared the screen with a few but key number of A-listers. But it wasn’t until she earned a 2015 Golden Globe nomination for her role in Cake that we realized she’s practically worked with everyone in Hollywood.
