Bryan Cranston as Dalton Trumbo with Sam Jackson

Following the Trumbo première attended by Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Diane Lane, Michael Stuhlbarg and Louis C.K., as well as Dalton Trumbo's daughters Niki Trumbo and Mitzi Trumbo, director Jay Roach mapped out for me the links between birds, Edward G. Robinson's art collection, Otto Preminger, Kirk Douglas and Spartacus; USC, Edward Dmytryk and Lee Grant; Roman Holiday, 30 Seconds Over Tokyo and A Guy Named Joe; Kitty Foyle, Ginger Rogers' mother, Hedda Hopper's hats and horse manure; Bertolt Brecht's Hollywood poem and Myrna Loy's radio show.

Abner Benaim Rolls on Ruben Blades Doc (Exclusive)

6 November 2015 6:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mar Del Plata: Having addressed one of the best-known events in Panamanian history, Abner Benaim’s Apertura Films and Gema Juarez Allen’s Gema Films are re-teaming to produce a docu-feature about the best-known Panamanian: “Ruben Blades Is Not My Name.”

Benaim, who helmed Panama’s 2014 Oscar entry “Invasion,” also co-produced by Gema Films, about the 1989 U.S. invasion, is directing.

Turning on the multiple Grammy Award-winning salsa singer/composer, “Ruben Blades Is Not My Name” is currently shooting in New York, will then segue to Panama and other Latin American countries.

“Invasion” took a questioning stance on the competence – plus humanity – of American armed intervention in foreign lands. “Ruben Blades Is Not My Name” turns on a multi-faceted figure who wrote and performed what was then the best-selling salsa album in history, 1978’s “Siembra,” was educated at Harvard, was and is a political activist, and made a run »

Fear the Walking Dead Season One – Episode 6 Review

6 October 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis reviews the sixth and final episode of Fear the Walking Dead Season One…

The Good Man.

Directed by Stefan Schwartz.

Written by Robert Kirkman & Dave Erickson.

Nice night for a stroll…

There’s that dog again, in the street. It’s a persisting metaphor in Fear the Walking Dead – one symbolic of the characters slowly being backed into a corner, more animal than man, ready to lash out for survival.

The dog is the neighbour’s. Maddie (Kim Dickens) doesn’t tell them about the impending Operation Colbalt, where all civilians are about to be abandoned by the evacuating army. It’s that ‘us or them’ mentality the dog represents. “They didn’t do anything for us,” Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) reminds Maddie. It’s barely been a fortnight since the lights went out, and already a neighbour is too distant.

Those are the best moments of The Walking Dead »

'Fear the Walking Dead' Boss Previews Faster Pace, Mix of Land and Sea in Season 2

5 October 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season one finale of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead.] AMC's Fear the Walking Dead capped its freshman season with a death in the blended family when Travis (Cliff Curtis) had to shoot Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez) after she was bitten trying to escape the compound after a walker invasion. (With Daniel setting the walkers free in a bid to save the group's loved ones.) That capped an episode in which Travis let Daniel's (Ruben Blades) tortured Army soldier Andy go, only to see him return and take a non-fatal shot at

5 October 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

AMC's Fear the Walking Dead wrapped up its six-episode Season 1 last night with The Good Man, as fans begin the long wait for Season 2, debuting in 2016. Shortly after the season finale aired last night, AMC released a new preview, where the cast and producers look ahead to Season 2, which has been confirmed to span 15 episodes. This new preview features executive producer/showrunner Dave Erickson, who reveals that the show started out as focusing on "the apocalypse filtered through a family drama," but in the next season of Fear the Walking Dead, it will be the opposite, now that the apocalypse has fully set in. If you didn't watch the season finale last night, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

We also hear from series star Kim Dickens (Madison), who teases that her secretive "dark past" will serve her well in the zombie apocalypse. Executive »

'Fear the Walking Dead' season finale review: Who here is worth saving?

5 October 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on the end of "Fear the Walking Dead" season 1 coming up just as soon as I let you keep the watch... After keeping the zombie action — aka the thing that this franchise tends to do best — to a bare minimum for most of the season, "The Good Man" finally gave us walkers by the arena-ful, in a way that at least explains how the relatively well-fortified military presence in La fell. (One wonders if there were versions of Daniel Salazar all across the country, unleashing thousands of zombies on the local cops or soldiers in order to protect individual family members.)  Those sequences in and around the garrison were well staged, and Daniel and Ofelia coming upon the pile of ash — not only compounding their grief over Griselda, but making Daniel recall atrocities from his homeland — was powerful. Six episodes in, though, Daniel and Strand are the »

Fear The Walking Dead, Season 1, Episode 6, “The Good Man”

Written by Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman

Directed by Stefan Schwartz

Aired Sundays at 9pm (Et) on AMC

With “The Good Man”, Fear The Walking Dead wraps up its first season, a decidedly mixed bag filled with great imagery and so-so characters. The finale keeps things incredibly brisk, focusing on pushing its story to the next stage and moving the characters toward the world we recognize from The Walking Dead. It’s a bloody hour, one that satisfies in mostly expected ways.

The hour acts largely the way a finale should. It wraps up the season’s storylines, as Travis and Maddie’s family and the Salazars head to the military compound with the goal of retrieving Nick, Liza, and Griselda, leading all of the walkers that were locked in the stadium to the compound, effectively overrunning it.

God this show looks good. »

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Finale Sails Into Uncertain Future (Spoilers)

4 October 2015 10:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fear the Walking Dead” finished a first season best characterized as an operation that failed, but the patient still lived. Then again, the project’s success was almost a foregone conclusion assuming that even a decent fraction of the audience watching its sire tuned in, with AMC ordering a second season before this six-episode trial run began. On the plus side, the zombie apocalypse offers plenty of opportunity to shed characters and reboot on the fly. But while there were some solid moments in the finale, overall this arduous slog of a start doesn’t portend smooth sailing ahead.

Granted, for Los Angeles residents, the show did offer an extra kick, and even proved helpfully educational. Who knew there was a shortcut all the way to the beach that works even in case of society-crippling zombie apocalypse?

Fear the Walking Dead Season One – Episode 5 Review

29 September 2015 11:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis reviews the fifth episode of Fear the Walking Dead


Directed by Kari Skogland.

Written by David Wiener.

Five episodes in, and Fear the Walking Dead has its most consistently good episode. There are still character inconsistencies, there are still unclear plot points; there is still the fact that nine of the most interesting days in the Walking Dead universe were skipped; but – for the first time in the show so far – the positives outweighed the negatives.

This comes from Fear’s core group of characters being scattered into their own subplots. The frustratingly pacifist Travis (Cliff Curtis) went on a school trip to Zombie-Ville (with the recently opened shooting range attraction), indulgent Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and snot-nosed Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) partied in an abandoned house, and Daniel (Ruben Blades) took his shirt off and got his cut-throat razor on.

Isolating these characters from the rest allowed for a more empathetic response. »

Fear The Walking Dead episode 5 review: Cobalt

28 September 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The penultimate episode of Fear The Walking Dead season one provides a grisly insight into the character of Daniel Salazar...

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Cobalt

The undesirable elements have been taken away from the community. The sick, the mentally ill, the physically addicted... they've all been dragged off by the authorities, and it seems as though everyone's okay with it, except for Ofelia Salazar. She shows up after a brilliant cold opening introducing the smooth and devious Strand (Colman Domingo), throws bottles at the fence and attempts to pick a fight with the soldiers to find out where her mother is. She's not exactly equipped for this new world, as we'll find out shortly. She doesn't know how to get things done in an effective way yet, only able to avoid the same fate as her missing companions thanks to the interference of her military make-out partner Andy (Shawn Hatosy).

Fear The Walking Dead, Season 1, Episode 5, “Cobalt

Written by David Wiener

Directed by Kari Skogland

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on AMC

Good things come to those who wait. After four somewhat sluggish weeks for Fear The Walking Dead, things finally get interesting in “Cobalt”. Characters took action this week, and we got a look at what is happening inside that military base that has been discussed so frequently. Moral complications and true horrors dominate the hour, and make it one worth watching.

Daniel and Ophelia take initiative, capturing Ophelia’s corporal boyfriend and learning some valuable information from him. Travis attempts to take a trip to the central base where Nick, Griselda, and Liza are, but get sidetracked by the unit he is travelling with. And, in the best use of either character all season long, Alicia and Chris have fun destroying a rich house.

God bless Rubén Blades. »

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 5 Recap: What’s the Plan, Dan?

27 September 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you watch “Fear the Walking Dead,” Season 1, episode 5, titled “Cobalt.”

Following last week’s gripping look at life in a suburban L.A. internment camp, Episode 5 of “Fear the Walking Dead” was a curiously dull affair that did little to advance the story or deepen the characters. Instead, this installment spent an unwelcome amount of time rehashing the TV torture debate, an exhausted plot device that should’ve ended with the series finale of “24” back in 2010.

The episode – titled “Cobalt” – opens with an image of the American flag seen in reverse and topped with razor wire. Behind it, frightened Angelenos are held prisoner in Guantanamo-like cages. Subtle, it’s not.

Above the crying and shouting, a velvet purr of a voice begins narrating a disturbing sales pitch. This is Strand (played by Colman Domingo), a stylish operator who’s busy getting inside the head of Doug Thompson, »

Fear The Walking Dead episode 4 review: Not Fade Away

21 September 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This week's episode of Fear The Walking Dead robs us of witnessing the true downfall of La, but also has some nicely-directed moments...

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 – Not Fade Away

There's an old saying that goes, “Good fences make good neighbours.” However, that rule seems only to apply when you're the person who has chosen to erect the fence. Put up a privacy fence and obstruct someone's view, or erect a fence where laws prohibit fencing, and your action will make you an enemy pretty quickly. In the universe of The Walking Dead, fences make good targets, because there's probably food behind said fences - either the canned kind or the mobile, screaming sort.

Things seem to be going on fairly normally in Nick Clark's neighborhood. His stepfather Travis is out for a run, waving at neighbours and getting up a good sweat. His stepbrother Chris is perched on »

Review: 'Fear the Walking Dead' - 'Not Fade Away': Who guards the Guardsmen?

20 September 2015 7:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on tonight's "Fear the Walking Dead," and the first season so far, coming up just as soon as I decline your nice offer of methadone... As you may recall, I was pretty lukewarm on "Fear" after seeing the first two episodes, appreciating the idea of the things it was trying to do (establishing its characters pre-apocalypse, and painting a picture of how society actually fell apart) even as a lot of the execution left me cold. The riot scenes in episodes 2 and 3 looked embarrassingly cheap and amateurish for a franchise whose technical expertise has tended to be its strength, the teen angst was fitting in here about as well as it generally does in adult cable dramas these days, and even interesting performers like Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis didn't seem to have enough to play. "Not Fade Away" didn't abruptly fix all these problems. The show »

Fear The Walking Dead episode 3 review: The Dog

15 September 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fear The Walking Dead is pacing itself nicely and threatening a headlong sprint into chaos at any moment...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 The Dog

Fear The Walking Dead has been good, but not great, for its first two episodes. After a week off, the show returns to a cooler climate. Summer is becoming autumn, and as the sun and warmth begin to fade, so too begins to fade any hope of a positive resolution for the dysfunctional family at the center of AMC’s La-based zombie drama. The escalation of the situation hasn’t been slow, per se, but they’ve been taking their time and attempting to roll the carnage out in natural waves. Civilization doesn’t collapse immediately, it starts fraying at the edges and then spreads. The spreading has started.

One of the touches I like about Fear The Walking Dead is its sound design. To say »
