TV show description:
Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) is a new summer arrival in the Hamptons, a seemingly friendly and sophisticated "girl next door." Her disarming charm allows her seamless access to the restricted circles of the local high society. However, Emily is anything but what she seems. As a nine year old girl, her father was framed for a horrific crime by the friends and coworkers he trusted and sentenced to a life in prison. Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss, and betrayal. Now, 17 years later, she has returned »
Viewers of the drama, which stars Emily VanCamp and Madeleine Stowe, likely expected the news, given how much the most recent season finale felt like a series ender. Stowe’s character, Victoria Grayson, who had served as the main antagonist from the very first episode, was killed off earlier this season.
Additionally, Josh Bowman, who had been with the show since its premiere back in 2011, saw his character die dramatically, leaving just VanCamp, Nick Wechsler and Gabriel Mann as the original cast members left standing. Revenge has racked up quite a body count during its run, with regulars Henry Czerny, Connor Paolo and Barry Sloane all meeting with sticky ends at various points.
Showrunner Sunil Nayar spoke to Entertainment Weekly, confirming the cancellation. “We »

Written and Directed by Patricia Rozema
There is an oft-repeated story about filmmaker Patricia Rozema’s introduction to the cinema. Raised in a family of Dutch Calvinists in Kingston, Ontario, she was not allowed to attend her first film until the age of 16, when a date took her to see The Exorcist. In interviews, Rozema confided that she was haunted by the movie’s terrifying images for days afterward.
The media focused on her unusual film-going past when her directorial debut, I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing, became an unexpected Canadian and international smash in 1987. It was commonly referenced to underscore her ironic choice of career given the circumstances.
However, the anecdote has more personal relevance for me. In a way, it’s a mirror image of my own experience seeing Rozema’s third film, When Night Is Falling, when it was released in 1995. I »

After four seasons, ABC has canceled “Revenge,” Variety has confirmed.
The news comes just weeks after Stowe’s character Victoria Grayson was killed off the series, and the actress confirmed she would not be back for another round, if “Revenge” were to be renewed.
Earlier this season, Josh Bowman, another series regular from the show’s start in 2011, was also killed off, leaving only VanCamp, Gabriel Mann and Nick Wechsler as the original cast members left. Over the course of the series, regulars Henry Czerny, Connor Paolo and Barry Sloane were also axed, while actress Christa B. Allen has been void for the latter half of this season — though she will return for the final two episodes of the series.

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César. (Stewart became the first American actress to take home the French Academy Award. »

This article contains spoilers for, er, Clear And Present Danger.
How many times have you walked out of seeing a big summer blockbuster movie, and felt like you'd been treated like a grown-up? Christopher Nolan movies, whether you like them or not, treat you with that level of respect. But when it comes to major thrillers, there's generally something about them where you feel you've been shortchanged.
It's why it puzzles me that Clear And Present Danger doesn't get a lot more love. From the day I saw it for the first time back in 1994, and on every viewing since, I've really loved this film. I love that it isn't afraid of a dense plot, isn't afraid of putting a big movie star on the poster yet finds time for supporting characters, »
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. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »
