For me, the stamp of a great movie is how much your excitement, or self-induced hype, matches positively with the final product and in the case of Interstellar, it captures those desires with absolute assurance.
Love or dislike Nolan’s increasingly extensive films, you’ve got to accept that original work on such an expansive level to a worldwide audience is a Hollywood rarity these days. There’s definitely a growing universe of independent projects being backed by the offshoots of large movie corporations but Nolan and his brother have managed once again, like Inception, to pull off one hell of »

Last week, we reported that Emmy-winning actress Jessica Lange will not be back for Season 5 of American Horror Story, which we reported in January will be called American Horror Story: Hotel. Over the past week, series creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed two new casting additions through his official Twitter page, Chloë Sevigny and Wes Bentley. Of course, no character details were given at this time.
Both actors have appeared on previous seasons of American Horror Story. Chloë Sevigny starred in Season 2, American Horror Story: Aslyum, as Briarcliff Aslyum's Shelly, a nymphomaniac who was committed by her husband. Wes Bentley portrayed Edward Mordrake, a two-faced ghost who collected the souls of tortured carnival performers in Season 4, American Horror Story: Freak Show. They join a cast that also includes Lady Gaga, Matthew Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson.
Aside from the American Horror Story: Hotel title, very little is known about Season »
It seems as though the next season of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series American Horror Story is accruing cast members at an alarming rate. The last week alone has witnessed the departure of fan favorite Jessica Lange, whose four season stint has finally reached its end, and the arrival of Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Wes Bentley.
Those three newcomers all made brief appearances on the show in the past, and have since been bumped up to starring roles. It seems as if Murphy is intent on mining previous seasons for cast members, as today brings news that Chloe Sevigny has signed on to appear in American Horror Story‘s fifth season – Hotel.
The actress made her first appearance in the show during its second season, Asylum. A brief guest-starring role, her arc as Shelley the nymphomaniac turned – as most things often do in Ahs – ugly pretty quickly. She »

Another American Horror Story alum has checked in to the Hotel. Chloe Sevigny, who had a recurring role in American Horror Story: Asylum, has signed on to the anthology series’ upcoming fifth season as a series regular. The news was announced by Ryan Murphy himself on Twitter earlier today. Sevigny joins an already impressive cast that includes Lady Gaga, Cheyenne Jackson, and fellow Horror Story vets Matt Bomer and Wes Bentley (who both appeared in last year’s Freak Show). There are no details yet on Sevigny’s character, but back in Season 2 of American Horror Story, she played Shelley, a nymphomaniac who was a patient at Briarcliff and was tortured by and experimented on by James Cromwell’s Dr. Arden. Sevigny’s other TV credits include Big Love, The Mindy Project, Hit & Miss, and, most recently, Netflix’s new drama series, Bloodline. As we get closer and closer to »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.
One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Last year's blockbuster Interstellar performed quite well at the box office, taking in over $672 million worldwide. But the sprawling and ambitious sci-fi epic had many fans scratching their heads when it came to the ending, which was so complex we even broke it down at length back in November. Screenwriter Jonathan Nolan and producer/science adviser Kip Thorne attended a media event at Caltech's Jet Propulsion Lab to promote the release on Blu-ray and DVD, arriving from Paramount on March 31, where Jonathan Nolan revealed that the original ending was "much more straight-forward." If you haven't seen Interstellar yet, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
At the end of Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey's Cooper launches himself into the black hole known as Gargantua, in hopes of sending the data compiled on the signularity of gravity back to Earth. He ends up in "the 5th dimension, »
Unfortunately, we won’t be watching that show this year; we’re getting Ahs: Hotel instead. But Jessica Lange teased what the former could have been during Paleyfest’s Freak Show panel, when asked if Lady Gaga joining the cast had made her reconsider retiring.
Gawker’s Rich Juzwiak was the first to point this moment out, what he calls a “masterwork” in “shade, shade, and more shade.” The question comes from a fan and, while clumsily worded -- “Does Gaga convince you to stay for another season?” Lange is certainly smart enough to deduce what it means.
It only gets better from there: She basically goes full Lucille Bluth, before licking her lips and saying, “No, you know-- When, um-- Well.” And then she just giggles.

It’s no secret: Women have always run “American Horror Story.”
Whether they were in charge of covens or performing as freaks, the women of “American Horror Story” are a force to be reckoned with. The ladies of the show were celebrated by the Television Academy Tuesday night with a special panel, including cast members Kathy Bates, Jamie Brewer, Connie Britton, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Gabourey Sidibe, along with executive producers Jennifer Salt and Alexis Martin Woodall.
Some of the women, like Paulson and Rabe, have been part of the show for several seasons; Britton, however, was only in the first, dubbed “Murder House” — but she hasn’t ruled out returning to the show.
When asked by moderator Debra Birnbaum, executive TV editor at Variety, if she would return to the show, she didn’t miss a beat before answering, “Of course I would,” eliciting a roar of excitement from the audience. »
