Last season, the Scorpion TV show saw a significant tumble in the ratings but CBS renewed the series anyway. Now, the network is moving the show to a later timeslot (when fewer people are watching television). Could Scorpion be cancelled or, is it sure to be renewed for a third season so there will be enough episodes for syndication? Stay tuned.Based on real-life events, Scorpion revolves around computer expert Walter O'Brien (Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits. They're this country's last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats. The quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises, while also helping each other learn how to fit in. The series also stars Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Jadyn Wong, Ari Stidham, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Riley B. Smith.The ratings are typically the best »

Wynonna Earp Season 2 has a premiere date.
The great-great-granddaughters of Wyatt Earp will return to Syfy on Friday, June 9 at 10/9c, as reported by EW.com. Season 2 will pick up in the demon-plagued town of Purgatory, where Wynonna and Waverly Earp (played by Melanie Scrofano and Dominique Provost-Chalkley) will continue to fight new evils alongside their allies.
“The stakes are higher than ever,” says showrunner Emily Andras. “Because we really examine the nature of family. Can you ever be a good person if you’re someone who is forced to make life-and-death decisions?”

Exclusive: It's a Terminator 2: Judgment Day reunion of sorts with Mr. T-1000 himself Robert Patrick joining producer Gale Anne Hurd on Amazon's adaptation of the horror podcast Lore. This is the first casting announcement for Lore and details are scant on what Patrick's role on the Hurd and Ben Silverman Ep'd hybrid anthology series will be, but I hear it is a meaty part for the Scorpion actor. What we do know for sure is that Patrick will be filming his Lore part later… »

I struggle to think of any film with more versions than Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Since the 1991 theatrical release, we’ve seen – *deep breath* – the Special Edition Director’s Cut, The Ultimate Cut and the T-1000 Edition Cut. Now, you can add one more to that list, with a 3D remaster of the film due in cinemas on August 25th.
James Cameron is obviously no stranger to using 3D, having kickstarted the trend with Avatar. Back in 2014, he was asked whether a 3D conversion of his Terminator films was on the cards. His response was a ‘no’ on The Terminator (“You could upgrade it to 3D, but it’s pretty gritty low budget filmmaking. We’d spend more converting it to 3D than we spent on the movie,” he said) but a ‘maybe’ on Terminator 2, explaining his reasoning as such:
Terminator 2 is a more polished film and, I think, it »

As in our previous features, in this list, we’re celebrating ten of the most effective guest performances in The X-Files over the course of its run – and yes, that includes the 2016 revival series. By ‘guest appearance’ we mean an actor who appeared as a particular character no more than twice over the course of the series (more appearances and it becomes a recurring role). As a result, this list naturally tends towards a celebration of performances during Monster of the Week episodes, since characters taking part in arc plots tend to appear more often. The show has, of course, featured impressive performances from actors in recurring roles as well – but that’s another list for another day!

We seem to be in the middle of a spate of hospital-based horror at the moment, with both this film, Eloise, and the retitled The Hospital (aka The Linda Vista Project), hitting DVD here in the UK within a matter of weeks; and there’s even more to come…
Eloise sees Jacob Martin’s (Crawford) father pass away, committing suicide, leaving him a considerable inheritance… Only there’s a catch: Jacob must first prove his aunt is dead. Apparently succumbed at the great fire of the Eloise Asylum, Jacob’s aunt’s death certificate is tied up in a legal quagmire. Desperate for money Jacob’s friend Dell (Jackson) suggests they break into the abandoned institution in hopes of finding a death certificate. Enlisting the help of Scott »

We wanted to share a new clip from the horror/thriller Eloise, from the producers of The Exorcism Of Emily Rose and The Rite. It stars Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), Eliza Dushku (Tru Calling, Bring It On), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgement Day, The X-Files), and Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning …
Someday, someone will make a movie about all the warm and wonderful things that could happen on the site of a former insane asylum. Until that day, however, we will no doubt get a lot more like “Eloise,” in which absolutely nothing nice happens in such a place. The things that do happen all seem routinely reprised from prior horror movies, nearly all of them better than this one, a slick but thoroughly uninspired helming debut for veteran visual effects supervisor and second-unit director Robert Legato. Starring Chase Crawford and Eliza Dushku as the chief unfortunates trapped in a long-shuttered looney bin that malevolently “comes alive again,” this scare-deprived frightfest will primarily be watched and forgotten by genre fans in home formats after an eye-blink run in theaters.
The Eloise of the title isn’t a children’s-book heroine, but the name of an actual eastern Michigan mental institution that existed for 150 years, »

Breaking into a long-abandoned mental hospital proves to be a lousy idea (who would've guessed?) in Eloise, a deeply unpromising debut horror flick by visual-effects veteran Robert Legato. Chace Crawford and Eliza Dushku lead a quartet of actors whose midnight break-in (and it's a dark-and-stormy one, natch) somehow sends them careening back in time, interacting with a mad psychiatrist played by Robert Patrick. The cast's familiarity will do little to help this dud attract viewers, even on VOD.

“Scorpion” star Robert Patrick gets to cheat death in the latest episode of the CBS series. When a mission in the desert results in exploding shrapnel that seriously wounds Cabe (Patrick), Team Scorpion must resort to drastic measures in order to keep him alive. “What the episode really symbolizes is the frailty of life,” Patrick told TheWrap. “Even though they look at Cabe as this invincible guy who can overcome anything and everything, they find themselves in a situation where they have to use their intellect to save him.” But it’s how they save him that makes the episode crazy. »
