In celebration of World AIDS Day at the White House, President Obama announced a $100 million commitment over three years towards a search for a cure, as well as reauthorizing President Bush’ Pepfar Act, which combats the spread of the disease overseas.
Bleeding Cool says that they have it on very good authority that the CW Network is developing a Young Justice series to add to their existing lineup with Superboy and Miss Martian as leaders of the team. It would explain why they pulled the Cartoon Network series, which I rather enjoyed.

Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2 has been moved back by nearly a year. Previously set to hit the big screen on July 3, 2015, the sci-fi action sequel will now hit the big screen on July 1, 2016. It's still unknown whether or not Will Smith is planning on reprising his Independence Day role as Captain Steven Hiller for the sequel, although Emmerich recently confirmed that scripts have been written both with and without Hiller in them. Little is known about the film's plot or cast, especially who else might return for the sequel. Emmerich confirmed that a number of the original film's characters appear in the script(s) by Dean Devlin and himself. The 1996 original also starred Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Randy Quaid, Mary McDonnell, Brent Spiner, James Duval and Vivica »
Congratulate me for I am no longer a disgrace. I call myself a fan of science fiction, but until recently I had never seen a single episode of Battlestar Galactica. I know. How dare I? For years, I would hear people say things like “Cylon” and “Pythia” and “You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace” and I would have no idea what they were talking about. Fortunately, the situation has now been remedied, and after some diligent binging, I have seen the complete re-imagined series. (But not yet the original—worth it?) Battlestar Galactica truly is the perfect show for binge viewing because it is so all-consuming in its thoroughly inventive world. It is dark and desperate, yet hopeful, complex and fully realized, yet ambiguous, and altogether ripe for obsession. I finally understand what all the hoopla and “So say we all”-ing is about.
I now feel part of this family. »

It's still unknown whether or not Will Smith is planning on reprising his Independence Day role as Captain Steven Hiller in Roland Emmerich's upcoming big screen sequel but, as Emmerich tells Indiewire today, two scripts have been made ready so that the production can proceed with or without Smith's involvement. "It's looking good," Emmerich acknowledges, however, regarding the star's participation. Little is known about the film's plot or cast, especially who else might return for the sequel. Emmerich confirmed that a number of the original film's characters appear in the script(s) by Dean Devlin and himself.

Odd List Simon Brew Ryan Lambie 26 Sep 2013 - 07:09
The year 1991 is the focus for our latest underappreciated films list, which includes dramas, thrillers, and a smattering of horror...
Ah, 1991. The year Robert Patrick ran after cars in Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and Kevin Costner grew a spectacular mullet for Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves. But outside the top ten blockbuster list, there lies an entire world of other, less celebrated films to discover.
Some of the movies on this list have been included because they were overlooked in theatres, while others have been added because they were unfairly dismissed by critics. One or two others were modest successes, but (whisper it) we decided to include them anyway because we really, really like them.
So here, for your delectation, is our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1991.
A sequel to the 1996 sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day has long been in the planning stages, and as it stands now, we will be getting two back-to-back follow-ups with ID Forever - Part 1 and ID Forever - Part 2, the first of which, as far as we can tell, is still being planned for a 2015 release. Though, that may change, pushing the release date of that first chapter to 2016.
In June, while out promoting his latest thriller White House Down, director Roland Emmerich revealed original cast member Will Smith was not returning, saying that the actor was too big of a star, and that they could not meet the actor's demands.
"Will Smith can not come back because he's too expensive, but he'd also be too much of a marquee name. It would be too much. We have like maybe half of the people that you know from the first film (in »

More than 20 years old it may be, but time has been unusually kind to the hacker caper thriller Sneakers, Simon writes...
Proverbial cards on the proverbial table: I love Sneakers. I'm a big fan of caper movies at the best of times, but this one's always been a favourite. There's an easy charm, an absence of nastiness, and a sheer sense of fun in here that's always appealed to me. Plus, it doesn't matter how many times I watch it, it doesn't feel dated. Even though it clearly is.
However, I've got to share two bugbears first. I don't like to start on negatives, but these moments really get me every time, and very slightly sully an otherwise stupendous Sneakers soup. Guttingly, both moments unfortunately involve Ned Rierson himself, the marvellous Stephen Toblowsky, in a cameo role that pops up towards the end of the film. »
I have some sad news for. well, some of you. The cruise ship The Pacific Princess — the setting for The Love Boat — has sailed its final voyage and will be stripped for parts.
Sad to think that Charo will never go jiggling jogging on those decks again.
I haven’t been able to watch AMC’s new drama Low Winter Sun yet, but the Tampa Bay Times‘ Eric Deggans thinks it suffers from the weight of its seriousness and sees a bad trend at AMC, with The Killing and Hell on Wheels all suffering from trying to hard to be the next Mad Men or Breaking Bad.
Why are we seeing so many talk shows dedicated to particular TV shows, like AMC’s Walking Dead-focused Talking Dead or Shark After Dark, which became a part of Shark Week? To some degree, those shows are like the proverbial water cooler, »

Doris Roberts is happy to get back to fighting crime, at least on television.
An assistant to Pierce Brosnan's "Remington Steele" as Mildred before playing mom to Ray Romano on "Everybody Loves Raymond," the five-time Emmy winner teams with several other familiar TV faces -- Tim Conway ("The Carol Burnett Show"), Marion Ross ("Happy Days"), Ron Glass ("Barney Miller") and Paul Dooley ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") -- in Monday's (Aug. 5) new episode of TNT's "Major Crimes."
The veteran actors collectively play former cast and crew members of a fictional 1970s show called "Prognosis: Homicide," and they now live in an apartment complex where another resident has died suspiciously. Capt. Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and her team seek the group's assistance in determining what happened.
Roberts' character was the hairstylist on the show-within-the-show ("an outspoken one ... what else would you expect from me?"), and the actress tells Zap2it the "Major Crimes" guest gathering is "incredible, »
Watch a There's No Place Like Home video promo from TNT's Major Crimes. Catch a new promo from the program which airs on Mondays, 9/8 p.m. Central. Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni and Graham Patrick Martin star in the James Duff-created series. Haven't watched Major Crimes? Here's what it's about: The detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department's Major Crimes division are still reeling from the departure of Brenda Leigh Johnson and the realization that Captain Raydor is now in charge. Unlike their previous chief, Raydor is determined to lead the department with a more team-oriented approach, sharing the credit with the people with whom she works »
The CW is planning a spin-off of Supernatural. Generally, I like the idea of a spin-off but it’s my least favorite kind: a backdoor pilot spin-off focusing on an a character we haven’t met yet. That character that will be introduced in the 20th episode of the upcoming season. Isn’t there enough depth to the Supernatural universe to create a series around an established character? I liked Christian Campbell‘s character — and the idea of Christian Campbell in a TV series with no awkward facial hair. On a more exciting note, Felicia Day will return as lesbian nerd Charlie.
I thought they’d make a fun spin-off when the episode originally aired.

Here at PopWatch, we’re reminiscing about the pop culture moments that we still can’t get over — no matter how much time has passed.
“How many of us ended up with the people we wanted to be with? Got stuck with the best of limited options. And why? Because the ones we really want, that we’ve really loved, are dead, dying, turned out to be Cylons and they didn’t know it.”

**Warning, this post contains moderate spoilers for tonight’s episode of Major Crimes.**
Procedural crime dramas aren’t typically the venue for three dimensional gay characters and nuanced coming out stories. The popular TV genre tends to focus more on the case of the week than character, but this season TNT’s Major Crimes is finding a healthy balance between the two.
The spin-off of The Closer is currently in its second season with high ratings and a weekly plethora of whodunit criminal cases dissected (and solved) by Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and her team, comprised primarily of characters carried over from The Closer like Detectives Provenza (G. W. Bailey) and Flynn (Tony Denison).
And then there’s Rusty.

Another promising young actor named Tommy Lee Jones was on the then-abc daytime serial during that period in the 1970s, but except for the occasional guest stint or miniseries - such as "Flesh & Blood" later that decade, or last fall's History hit "Hatfields & McCoys," which earned him an Emmy Award -- Berenger largely has kept his work focused on movies, including the classics "The Big Chill" and "Platoon" and the popular comedy "Major League."
However, one weekly TV role has lured him back, at least for a while.

This Monday on Major Crimes (TNT, 9/8c), the always composed Sharon Raydor feels a big chill when her Mia husband suddenly resurfaces — both in their home, and then at her work, where he’s serving as a public defender. Film vet and Emmy winner Tom Berenger spoke with TVLine about his imminent arc as Jackson Raydor, including the familiar faces on the cast who made him feel most at home.

Happy Post-Independence Day!
I’m feeling particularly patriotic this week after our country’s great gay rights leap forward last week thanks to a pair of Supreme Court decisions. You might have heard something about them. And if that wasn’t enough to make you thankful to be an American during this July 4th weekend, some terrible developments in Russia are a reminder that things are so much worse– and moving in the wrong direction– in large parts of the world.
Putin on the Shits?
On Sunday, Russia’s soon-to-be divorcé President Putin signed a law against the “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.” The law imposes fines for providing Lgbt information to minors, for holding gay pride events, for speaking up in defense of Lgbt rights or even equating gay and hetero relationships. This bill applies to Russian citizens, media organizations and foreigners. St. Petersurg and other regional governments »

20th Century Fox has issued a fitting July 3, 2015 release to the Independence Day sequel, currently titled ID Forever - Part 1. No date has been given for ID Forever - Part 2, but it would seem likely that this will be released on the same weekend in either 2016 or 2017.
The studio has also set a July 31, 2015 date for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which may now be called Peregrine's Home for Peculiars.
In addition, 20th Century Fox has shuffled release dates for some of its biggest titles next year. X-Men: Days of Future Past is swapping release dates with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, with X-Men: Days of Future Past now set for a May 23, 2014 release, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes bumped later into the summer on July 18, 2014. X-Men: Days of Future Past will now square off against the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, while »
