Aaron Sorkin: I didn't know how 'The Newsroom' was going to end

17 September 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The lights are about to dim on the HBO’s The Newsroom. The drama, created by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) and focusing on fictional cable news channel Acn, begins its final season on Nov. 9, and will wrap up its story in a tight six episodes. “It was because of my schedule,” Sorkin says of the shortened season. “But, as it turned out, six was the right number. I don’t know what we would have done with a seventh episode.”

So what’s in these final hours? EW talked to Sorkin about weddings, power plays, and Twitter scandals.

First Teaser Trailer For Final Season Of Sorkin’s ‘The Newsroom’

15 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’m a little excited about this one, it’s the first – proper – teaser for Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, that’s being let out for one final fling on HBO…and quite right to.

I won’t go on about how undervalued and original this series is and if you’re reading this, then you already know.  After reporting that the third and final season had finished filming back in mid-July, it’s felt like a long time since we’ve seen anything new but today it’s finally here, and it’s set for a 9th November date on HBO in the USA.

This series has been abound with tremendous performances, top notch scripts and an even better ensemble cast and I’m positive that all involved are looking to go out on a high, check the ‘stolen moments‘ teaser trailer now on Thn:

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

27 Things We Learned from ‘The Lookout’ Commentary

4 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Scott Frank wrote some of the best films of the past 20 years. His work on Out of SightGet Shorty, and Minority Report is nothing short of fantastic. After plenty of experience as a screenwriter Frank finally got behind the camera in 2007 with The Lookout. His snowy neo-noir was a hit with critics, but didn’t perform quite as well at the box office. That’s a shame, because it’s an exceptional dramatic thriller, boasting outstanding performances from Joseph Gordon-LevittIsla FisherMatthew Goode, and Jeff Daniels. You also couldn’t ask for a more rewarding script: it takes its time for quiet moments, and yet moves at an exceedingly fast clip; everything set up has a satisfying payoff; and Frank’s original story plays with archetypes. The friendly cop could’ve been a bumbling moron with a gun, but when he’s in a shootout, he’s portrayed as a genuinely competent enforcer. Frank »

Jeff Daniels on Working with Jim Carrey, Returning to Dumb and Dumber

2 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Things you can count on in life: cat videos, Pamela Anderson's confusing romantic choices and Harry and Lloyd being really, really dumb. The pea-brained characters, played by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, are back in the sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber - and they're still "oblivious to the world around them," Daniels tells People in this week's issue. "We haven't gained one ounce of intelligence in 20 years." For Daniels, 59, shooting Dumb and Dumber To, out Nov. 14, meant the opportunity to reteam with "comic tornado" Carrey, 52. "We're friends.

The Emmy Awards stuck with old favorites last night

26 August 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There was a sense going into the Emmy Awards yesterday that it might be a chance to say “out with the old and in with the new”, so to speak. Essentially, last night was shaping up to be a big battle between old guard winners like Breaking Bad and Modern Family against young bucks like Orange is the New Black and True Detective. I don’t watch enough television to have done official predictions, but I certainly had a rooting interest in seeing some of the top notch new shows take home prizes. Well, last night proved that the Emmy voters like what they like, as old favorite beat back new contenders fairly consistently. I’ll post all of the winners at the end of this piece, but I wanted to focus in on a few of the categories in particular. Mainly the versions of Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress for this show. »

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »

Are You Glad Bryan Cranston Beat Matthew McConaughey at the Emmys?

25 August 2014 11:06 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Kevin Spacey, Jeff Daniels, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Jon Hamm were all left out in the cold when Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a drama. Though Cranston was favored to win, McConaughey was a close second for his work on True Detective. Breaking Bad also beat True Detective for outstanding drama. It's not too surprising, since this was Breaking Bad's last year to win, but I'm curious whether you're glad Cranston went home with the Emmy, his fifth for portraying Walter White. »
