2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie

11 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: Regina King, “American Crime” Was It an Upset? Yes. Vegas money was on Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story”) or Mo’nique (“Bessie”). Still Eligible? Yes Hot Streak: Kathy Bates has the most nominations in this category of any actress ever, with six nods spanning from 1996 to 2015. Fun Fact: Olivia Cole was the first black actress to be nominated in this category and the first black actress to win. Her role? Mathilda in “Roots,” a miniseries being remade in 2016.

Last year, in a crowded field made up of three “American Horror Story” nominees and two major HBO players, it was the talented Regina King who took home the gold for ABC’s “American Crime.” Technically, the same thing could happen again in 2016, though the field is a bit more competitive than it was a year ago. For starters, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson and Angela Bassett »

Top of the Lake's Silver Through-Line

17 June 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As you have undoubtedly heard since it was announced on the internet about 1,000 different times over the course of about six months (as if each meeting was the official official, 'no really official this time!' news, Nicole Kidman will co-star in Top of the Lake season 2 (with Elisabeth Moss returning to her leading role) . It's her first reunion with her Portrait of a Lady director Jane Campion from back before she was fully Nicole Kidman but basically getting there if you know what I mean.

What we didn't know until now is that she will be sporting Jane Campion's favorite hair color just like Holly Hunter did in Season 1 way back in 2013...

X-Men: Apocalypse – Bryan Singer confirms no alternate cut

Don't expect any equivalent of the Rogue Cut with X-Men: Apocalypse, in spite of the many deleted scenes...

The last X-Men film, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, infamously cut out the character of Rogue from the theatrical release of the movie, adding Anna Paquin’s performance back for the Rogue Cut, that premiered on DVD and Blu-ray.

X-Men: Apocalypse, which finally heads to Us cinemas this weekend, is a similarly long movie, and one that also has a character cut out. Jubilee, as played by Lana Condor, appears fleetingly in the movie, but her extended role was a casualty of the need to get the movie’s running time down.

That said, don’t go expecting an X-Men: Apocalypse – Jubilee Cut. In fact, don’t go expecting any director’s or extended cut at all. Bryan Singer, chatting to Fandango, has confirmed “there will be nothing like »

Most of the Jubilee Scenes in X-Men: Apocalypse Have Been Cut

26 May 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is finally coming out this weekend, and though the reviews on it have been fairly mixed, it should still do really well at the box office. And fans seem to still be very excited about it. In addition to being the follow-up to Days of Future Past, which is regarded as one of the best movies in the entire X-Men franchise, there are a lot of new additions to the cast. Aside from a new Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops, fan favorite Jubilee will be making her debut in the film...Or will she? Warning, potential spoilers for Apocalypse ahead.

In a recent interview with Fandango, director Bryan Singer revealed that, much like the Rogue situation in Days of Future Past, Jubilee seems to have been virtually cut from the film. Singer was discussing scenes that had to be deleted and explained that Jubilee, played by Lana Condor, »

Remaking 'Roots' should have been an awful idea. But the new one's great.

26 May 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"This is how I heard about the boy, Kunta Kinte," Alex Haley (Laurence Fishburne) tells us in the opening moments of History's new miniseries Roots. "And this is how I'll tell you the story." The importance of stories, and the way that we tell them, form the heart of the new Roots, which debuts Monday night at 9 (the eight-hour project will air over four straight nights, simulcast on History, A&E, and Lifetime). From the time we meet Kunta (Malachi Kirby) as a young man abducted from his home in Juffure, Gambia by slavers, until we leave his descendants over 100 years later in the post-Civil War American South, Roots prizes the power of stories and tradition, from how Kunta's Uncle Silla (Derek Luke) teaches him the ways of the Mandinka warrior, to how Kunta's grandson Chicken George (Rege-Jean Page) will tell his own offspring stories about the grandfather he never met, »

X-Men: The real Apocalypse is its continuity!

24 May 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black attempts to make sense of the continuity of the X-Men franchise…

Have you ever attempted to make sense of the X-Men movie continuity? As in pick apart the entire timeline of events across the eight, soon to be nine films in the franchise? Of course not, you all have lives. You have friends and family and loved ones, and probably spend time with them. I, on the other hand, give a worrying amount of time over in my brain space to consider these things, and recent conversation with my good friend Lee Chrimes, ostensibly about the merits (or lack thereof) of the brand new X-Men: Apocalypse, led to a very deep exploration of X-Men chronology which drove us toward one inescapable conclusion: the writers have no idea, and are probably hoping we’re past the point of worrying about it. Well I have news for you, Simon Kinberg – this matters. »

TV Review: ‘Roots’

24 May 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In this age of niche networks and splintered audiences, there’s no controversy in noting that the updated version of the iconic “Roots” miniseries, simulcast May 30 on History, A&E, and Lifetime, is unlikely get the huge audience garnered by the original that aired on ABC nearly 40 years ago. Yet this new take on the saga should be viewed by as wide an audience as possible, from families to school kids to viewers interested in important chapters of the American saga. The lessons the new “Roots” teaches over the course of its eight hours, which air on four consecutive nights, are worth revisiting, and a number of outstanding performances enliven this retelling of the story of Kunta Kinte and his descendants.

The word “lessons” in the previous sentence is used advisedly. This miniseries shares the same impulse to instruct and enlighten that was a hallmark of the original, which was »

Malachi Kirby on remaking Roots: ‘I could feel the pain, hear the screams'

24 May 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It was the most-watched show in TV history, a shocking story of slavery – and now it’s back. The British actor relives the ordeal of playing Kunta Kinte

How was your family impacted by the slave trade?

Nobody could say Malachi Kirby hasn’t earned his breakthrough. Over five and a half months, he was shackled, assaulted, abused, imprisoned, beaten, whipped, mutilated and subjected to all manner of psychological torture and torment. On top of that, he went through the physical equivalent of a triathlon: running, swimming, horse-riding, rowing and fighting. “It pushed me to my limits and beyond,” says the 26-year-old Londoner. “There wasn’t one day that didn’t challenge me – physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally. Sometimes it was the heat, sometimes the cold, the mosquitoes, the horse. Sometimes it was just having to run in shoes that were too big.”

Adaptation vs. Reinterpretation: The Two Approaches to Making Comic Book Films

14 May 2016 6:44 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Comic book-inspired films are wildly popular right now. Disney, Fox and Warner Bros are the leaders in bringing Marvel and DC super heroes to the big screen. There are two techniques for doing this…Adaptations and Reinterpretations. Which company uses which method? Cinelinx takes a look at these two techniques.

“Adaptation” means transferring a literary source to a new medium, like stage, film or television.

“Reinterpretation” means to recreate or rethink a work of art as a new conception.

Looking at these two definitions, you can make the argument that Disney does adaptations, while Fox prefers reinterpretation, and DC is somewhere in between. Let’s look at the two methods of bringing the heroes of Marvel and DC Comics to the screen to see if this argument holds up.

We’ll start with the Disney superhero films: Marvel makes adaptations. Their films essentially lift the characters off the page and, »

Pilot Buzz: What Shows Are Heating Up for the 2016-17 Season?

9 May 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With less than one week to go until network execs have to make final decisions for the 2016-2017 television season, buzz on which pilots will be getting greenlit is becoming more clear. Since Variety‘s last pilot buzz report, a few projects have been deemed dead, while others continue to heat up.

Of course, anything can change before upfronts, which kick off May 16 in New York City, but here’s the latest on the broadcast pilots.

ABC

Already Ordered: “Designated Survivor”

Top of the Crop: “Presence,” “The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport”

Hot: “Conviction,” “The Jury,” “Notorious,” “Time After Time,” “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez,” “Dream Team,” “Speechless,” “Downward Dog”

In The Mix: “Broken,” “Marvel’s Most Wanted,” “Toast,” “Pearl,” “Chunk & Bean,” “Imaginary Cary”

ABC is looking to pick up around four new dramas and either five or six new comedies, sources say. While the network is hot on many of their pilots, »

Film Review: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

9 May 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’ve seen one cinematic apocalypse, you’ve seen them all. At least that’s the feeling conjured by “X-Men: Apocalypse,” the latest entry in one of the more reliable comic-book franchises around, this time disappointingly succumbing to an exhausting case of been-there-done-that-itis.

Director Bryan Singer pioneered the contemporary wave of superhero movies with 2000’s “X-Men,” and made a welcome return to the series just two years ago with the time-jumping “Days of Future Past.” Perhaps he should’ve quit while he was ahead. Even though “Apocalypse” hardly reps the franchise nadir (an in-joke midway through this ’80s-set pic throws deserved shade at Brett Ratner’s woeful “X-Men: The Last Stand” as one character exits “Return of the Jedi” and laments “the third one’s always the worst”), this is easily the least compelling, surprising and satisfying of Singer’s entries.

Pilot Buzz: Female-Led Comedies, Time Travel & Known Brands Heating Up at Broadcast Nets

2 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

May is here, which means that new broadcast TV shows are almost here.

This week, network execs are sitting in screening sessions, gathering final thoughts on pilots, some of which will be unveiled as official 2016-17 series later this month at upfronts in New York City.

Though the nets will have a better sense of their pilot slates by this week’s end, certain projects are emerging as hot — or not.

Diversity will shine this next TV season across the board, as will recognizable brands and talent. Female-led comedies are dominating ABC’s list of potential favorites, along with female-led dramas that appear to pack more procedural flare. Major male TV stars will topline the majority of programming at CBS. Fox is full of reboots, as well as some really big swings, while NBC is eyeing properties and hitmakers that have done well for them in the past. The CW »
