Hollywood is not happy with Indiana governor Mike Pence. Ashton Kutcher, Audra McDonald and James Van Der Beek are among the celebs who took to Twitter to condemn the conservative politician for signing the anti-gay Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law, which allows businesses the legal right to turn away same-sex couples. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff announced Thursday on Twitter the company was "canceling all programs that require our customers/employees to travel to Indiana to face discrimination," a decision Kutcher applauded. "Bravo Salesforce for taking a stand," the former Two and a Half Men star tweeted. "Hope more companies follow." He expressed his disbelief at other »
A decade or so ago, CSI was one of the highest-rated TV shows on network television. It spawned two spin-offs -- CSI: NY and CSI: Miami -- and each had long runs before being cancelled. Will CSI: Cyber also find ratings success? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On CSI: Cyber, Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI. It's a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world. This crime drama also features the talents of James Van Der Beek, Hayley Kiyoko, Charley Koontz, Shad Moss, and Peter MacNicol.

PhotosHouse of Cards Season 3 Premiere Recap: 19 Must-See Moments
1 | Claire’s darker ‘do on House of Cards: love it or hate it? (Us? Hated it.) Speaking of the Netflix drama’s new season, were you bummed that Deadwood alumni Molly Parker and Kim Dickens didn’t share a single scene together?
CSI: Cyber has much in common with its acronym-titled brethren, which is likely to be equally good and bad if you’re trying to guess how well it will play to audiences.
The inclusion of the word “Cyber,” and James Van Der Beek, among other elements, means we’re aiming for a slightly younger demographic than your average crime drama with such a title, but the show also has to appease those who are desperate for any new acronym to round out their schedule. Thus, the obvious hackers and cyber-crime, but you have to keep it so that everything “cyber” is pretty easy to explain. Also, there’s a lot of flashy elements to the visuals, and the editing is slightly choppy, apparently because… short attention span, I guess.
This actually makes for a very tricky combination, and one that is trying to be so broad, that it might not work for anyone. »

Bloody and profane, it is the latest blockbuster in the increasingly influential world of short films that have started to trigger conflicts with ‘official’ versions
Last week a short fan film is attracted the type of buzz you’d expect from a studio blockbuster. Power/Rangers, an unofficial take on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, features actress Katee Sackhoff being violently interrogated by James Van Der Beek. With bloodshed and more f-bombs than you’d expect from an interpretation of a kids’ TV show, the short has enraged rights holder Haim Saban but delighted fans by showing them familiar characters in a different light.
The film is back online this week, having been briefly removed from YouTube and Vimeo after Saban reputedly issued a legal threat. The short’s producer, Adi Shankar, has written a disclaimer disassociating the film from the Power Rangers brand, but there’s no guarantee that will »

No realistic critic could fairly expect “CSI: Cyber” to reinvent the wheel. Yet even with the modest expectations evoked by a brand extension — one designed, in essence, to give a high-tech sheen to the same old formula — this feels like a particularly tired exercise, one that Patricia Arquette probably would have passed on had she known “Boyhood” would add “Oscar winner” to her resume. As is, there are some talented people here cast adrift in an utterly tired setting, of which little positive can be said except, “Hey, it’s slightly less nasty than ‘Stalker.’”
Like any crime procedural worth its salt, the premiere tries to dig deep into the psyche of female viewers and come up with the most emotionally manipulative nightmare possible. And voila: A ripped-from-the-headlines plot about kids being stolen from their homes after being observed by perps hacking baby monitors. Good luck sleeping tonight, moms!

Perhaps to distract from tired dialogue and convenient plot holes, or simply in attempt to suck as much entertainment from the world as possible, the latest iteration of the timeworn CSI franchise wastes no time in trying to scare the audience. Yes, from baby kidnapping to murderous car services to dysfunctional roller coasters and subways, CSI: Cyber will try and unnerve. That is, however, only if you buy into the more ridiculous elements of this CBS drama that deals with a ‘new type of criminal” dabbling in nefarious, murderous acts that can happen to anyone, even you.
Add in what we’ve come to expect from CSI – an attractive, diverse group of agents, lots of quick cuts, impeccable (and unreal) timing, and of course a song by The Who – and you’ve basically got Cyber. However, the third spinoff of what truly is a remarkable franchise is different from the »

James Van Der Beek has had quite the busy 2015. The actor, who will turn 38 years old on Sunday, will be starring in the latest CSI spin-off. The series is titled CSI: Cyber and is about a group of detectives who investigate internet related murders, computer hacking, and identity theft. Van Der Beek will play Elijah Mundo, the second in command of the team. The series will also star Oscar winner Patricia Arquette, Luke Perry, and Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow. Another project of Van Der Beek’s popped up on the internet last week. He wrote and starred in a short film devoted to the popular children’s television series Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. This 14 minute film also features Katee Stackhoff, and it is a much darker and more violent version of the characters than fans were accustomed to watching. Van Der Beek played Rocky the Red Ranger, who was portrayed by Steven Cardenas in… »

Last week, producer Adi Shankar released the latest installment from his Bootleg Universe, a new short film entitled Power/Rangers. Just a few days later, it was pulled from Vimeo and YouTube after a copyright dispute with Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers creator Haim Saban and his Saban Brands company. But the short film came back online over the weekend. Today, Adi Shankar has released a behind-the-scenes video featuring director Joseph Kahn on the set, along with stars Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek.
This is the fourth short film in Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe, following The Punsher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism and last year's Judge Dredd: Superfiend. Joseph Kahn called this project a "deboot," which features characters popularized on the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, but in a much darker and gritty film that explores their origins.

Sneak Peek the new "Power/Rangers" short film, produced by an ambitious fan, starring Katee Sackhoff ("Battlestar Galactica") and James Van Der Beek ("Dawson's Creek"), receiving a stamp of approval from "Power Rangers" rights holders Saban Entertainment:
"...film producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn teamed up to create a bootlegged, revisionist future version of the 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' in a 14 minute short film called 'Power/Rangers', imagining the Rangers have matured past their teenage years, and now live in a much bleaker world.
"The video stars 'Battlestar Galactica' actress Katee Sackhoff as 'Pink Ranger Kimberly' and 'Dawson’s Creek' headliner James Van Der Beek as disgruntled former 'Red Ranger Rocky'..."

The controversial short Power/Rangers is back online after Saban Brands settled their copyright dispute with the makers of the film. The movie has now returned to Youtube and Vimeo after being pulled by both streaming video sites earlier in the week. And it looks like no further legal action is being pursued. You can also see the video below.
This past week, a tsunami of copyright controversy began to swirl after producer Adi Shankar unveiled his latest entry in the so-called Bootleg Universe, this time debuting a Power/Rangers fan film from Torque and Detention director Joseph Kahn. The 15 minute short was an instant sensation, starring Katee Sackhoff, James Van Der Beek and Will Yun Lee from a script Joseph Kahn wrote with James Van Der Beek and Dutch Southern. They called it a 'deboot' of the Power Rangers franchise, and Saban Brands, who own the Power Rangers copyright, »
The Power Rangers 'fan fiction' reboot is back on YouTube and Vimeo.
The 14-minute video gained over 12 million views on YouTube before it was pulled from the web. Producer Adi Shankar has also been threatened with legal action.
However, the dispute now appears to have been settled and the video has reappeared on Vimeo with a disclaimer.
"Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the Fan Film. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition," reads the disclaimer.
"This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product.
"I claim no rights to any of the characters (don't send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the Nsfw version. An alternate safe version is on YouTube."
There appears to be a tentative peace in the “Power Rangers” universe between copyright holder Haim Saban and short film producer Adi Shankar, whose “Power/Rangers” bootleg film starring James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff captivated franchise fans this week. Music video director Joseph Kahn posted the 14-minute “Power Rangers” take-off — his fourth “Bootleg Universe” project — on Monday night, but YouTube removed the video. The video has returned to Vimeo and YouTube for fans’ viewing enjoyment. A Nsfw version appears on Vimeo with the following warning: “The video contains graphic violence, nudity, sexual situations and drug use, and is intended for mature audiences only. »
