Sean Bean Films 'Legends'

In Legends, Bean will play undercover operative Martin Odum, who is known for his ability to disappear into deep cover, wearing his new persona like a second skin. However, complications arise when a stranger starts trouble by casting doubt over who the real Martin is.

Bean is joined on the Legends cast by Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino. David Wilcox, the Fringe and 666 Park Avenue producer, is the showrunner and executive producer for the series.

Nurse Jackie’s Merritt Wever on Her Emmy Acceptance Speech, That Office Chair Gag, and Zoey’s Love Life

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For five seasons, Merritt Wever’s eager young nurse, Zoey Barkow — the teddy-bear-scrubs-wearing protégée of Edie Falco’s drug-addicted Robin Hood–like nurse at a struggling New York hospital — has provided nearly all of the comedy in Showtime’s “dramedy” Nurse Jackie. Last year, Wever was awarded for her comic gifts with an Emmy — which shocked her into near silence, as she delivered what was perhaps the shortest acceptance speech in TV history.Nurse Jackie’s sixth season premiere aired last night and Vulture met with Wever in a Brooklyn café to discuss, among other things, Zoey’s surprising new romance with sexy but abrasive ER doctor Ike Prentiss (Morris Chestnut), an affair that might distract her from her usual self-imposed mission to keep watch over the tenuous sobriety of the freshly divorced Jackie. The New York City–born-and-bred actress told us right off that she’s nothing like Zoey: »

John Singleton accuses Hollywood of ignoring black directors

25 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Boyz N The Hood director says black culture depicted on film has been 'homogenised'

• 12 Years a Slave 'could be a game changer for black directors'

The Oscar-nominated director of Boyz N the Hood, John Singleton, has accused Hollywood of failing to help black film-makers make their way in the industry.

Speaking to students at Loyola Marymount university in La as part of The Hollywood Masters interview series, 46-year-old Singleton said studios were happy to cover stories with an African American theme but did not see why they should find black directors to take charge of them. "They want black people [to be] what they want them to be. And nobody is man enough to go and say that," he said. "They want black people to be who they want them to be, as opposed to what they are. The black films now — so-called black films now — they're great. They're great films. But they're just product. »

Idris Elba, Vin Diesel, Nia Long, Naomie Harris, More Are Image Awards Presenters + Oprah Honors Mandela

13 February 2014 10:39 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Is it just me, or do Naacap Image Awards organizers seem to be pulling out all the stops this time around, given the list of presenters, and planned events announced thus far? Could the move to TV One, and/or Reginald Hudlin producing this year, be key factors in what, so far, feels like a *fresher* NAACP Image Awards ceremony?  Or maybe it's just me. The NAACP and TV One announce today the second group of presenters confirmed to participate at the 45th NAACP Image Awards including Idris Elba, Vin Diesel, Terry Crews, Nia Long, Naomie Harris, Morris Chestnut, Chadwick Boseman, Tyrese Gibson, Ed Asner, and Ben Vereen.  In addition, Oprah Winfrey will honor »

What to Watch: Feb. 11-17, 2014

12 February 2014 3:29 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

We’re a little light on quantity at What to Watch this week but not on quality. And our newest contributor, Dave Canfield, has already handled today’s release of “All is Lost,” a film you really should add to whatever queue allows you to see quality films. When you’re done with that, pick one of these five. Ok, four. Ignore “Diana.” Please.

The Returned: Season One

The Returned: Season One”

Netflix landed a lot of press for the way they stormed the gates of the TV industry in 2013 but I think the story of The Sundance Channel’s evolution into a major player was under-reported. Jane Campion’s “The Top of the Lake” and the brilliant “Rectify” would have been enough but this import of a French series was actually their best program, and one of the best on TV overall. »

11 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Wadjda"

What's It About? Wadjda, a 10-year-old girl in Saudi Arabia, desperately wants a bike of her own, and after a bunch of her own money-making schemes fail, she enters her school's Koran memorization contest for the prize money.

Why We're In: Writer/director Haifaa Al Mansour has crafted an excellent movie, but in addition to that, "Wadjda" is the first feature-length film made entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first film written and directed by a Saudi woman.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"The Jungle Book: Diamond Edition"

What's It About? Mowgli is a human child who's most literally raised by wolves, but as he grows up it becomes clear to his buddies Baloo the bear and Bagheera the black panther that it's time for him to go live with other people.

Why We're In: It's a Disney classic with all the trimmings. »

Best Man Holiday Exclusive Interview with Monica Calhoun

7 February 2014 4:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Arriving just in time for that perfect stay at home Valentine's Day date is the romantic comedy smash hit of last year, The Best Man Holiday, which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD. The cast of 1999's The Best Man reunite more than ten years later, realizing that while times change, friendships don't.

To celebrate the release, we caught up with one of the returning stars behind this ensemble. Monica Calhoun plays Mia Sullivan, the one responsible for bringing all of her old college pals back together. This comes just as Mia receives some serious news about her health that will have complications for everyone involved. (Be sure to stock up on the tissues!)

Here is our exclusive interview with Monica, where we chat about everything from resurrecting her character ten years later to Morris Chestnut's essence. Just don't ask her about the third chapter of this saga. »

'Psych' - 'Cog Blocked' GIFs: An ode to Burton Guster

5 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If you hadn't heard, this is "Psych's" final season (we know, we're upset too), but it's going out with a bang. There is nary a misstep between now and the series finale on March 26. Wednesday's (Feb. 5) episode starts the countdown to the end off right, with Dulé Hill's magnum opus as Burton Guster.

When John Russell, a man living a carbon-copy of Gus' life, dies in an apparent suicide, Gus is bound and determined to prove that he (Gus Russ) didn't kill himself. It was a ton of fun watching Gus be the head detective for once, since nobody believes him that Russell was actually murdered.

There's also the introduction of Emanuelle (Kali Hawk), a private detective and love interest for Gus. Here's hoping we haven't seen the last of her. It was also awesome to see Gus throw off the shackles of Central Coast Pharmaceuticals after all these years. »

‘That Awkward Moment’ Review: Bros Before Clever Screenwriting, Engaging Characters, and Laughs, Apparently

31 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Women, amirite? One minute you’re entering them from behind, and the next they’re asking you just where this relationship is heading. Jason (Zac Efron) is so familiar with it he’s taken to calling the moment ‘the so,’ as in “so, what are we doing here?” Happily though he’s mastered the clean pull-out and sees no reason to change his behavior anytime soon. Daniel (Miles Teller) isn’t quite the same level of player, but he still enjoys building and tending to his roster of girls. Their friend Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) has left the game behind and married his college sweetheart, but that’s where the trouble begins. Mikey’s wife reveals that not only is she having an affair with a man who looks like Morris Chestnut, but she’s also filing for divorce. In an effort towards solidarity, Jason and Daniel join him in a promise and a pact that they »

'That Awkward Moment' Review: 10 Things to Know About the R-Rated Bro Comedy

30 January 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's the dog days of winter, a time when the temperature barely crests above the single digits and all hope seems to have been frozen, like the pipes running into your bathroom. So, it seems like a good time of year to unleash a fuzzy, dudes-on-the-town romantic comedy exercise, full of R-rated ribbing and ribald sight gags. Wouldn't you say?

Well, that's what you're going to get with "That Awkward Moment." The film, written and directed by Tom Gormican, follows three dudes who are also BFFs (played by Sundance sensation Miles Teller, former Disney heartthrob Zac Efron, and serious contender Michael B. Jordan). The trio gets really close after Jordan's wife leaves him (for her lawyer, who is also overseeing the divorce), but also causes them to conceal parts of their lives from each other. This leads to hilariously catastrophic consequences. Or something. There are also a few women in »

Win: The Call Blu-ray

27 January 2014 3:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the high-stakes, edge-of-your-seat thriller The Call, a thin thread of survival separates a teenage kidnap victim from her only hope: a compassionate, steady voice on the other end of a cell phone marshaling all the resources she can to find her. The Call is released on Est on 13th January and on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on 27th January 2014.

We have three copies of the Blu-ray to give away.

Veteran 911 Emergency Call Center operator Jordan (Halle Berry, X-Men) has the kind of job that’s not for the faint of heart: navigating the public’s distress in order to save lives. But when a young woman’s frantic report of a prowler ends tragically, Jordan is devastated. Reassessing her life, Jordan wonders if perhaps she’s experienced her last fraught-filled phone call. With a supportive cop (Morris Chestnut, Kick-Ass 2) for a boyfriend, maybe it’s time to step back, »

That Awkward Moment review

24 January 2014 1:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Luke Savage 28 Jan 2014 - 05:52

Meet the latest romantic comedy drama starring Zac Efron. Here's Luke's review of That Awkward Moment...

Zac Efron, Michael B Jordan and Miles Teller walk into a bar. Zac Efron is handsome and trendy, a real lady-killer. He looks longingly at a young woman. Although longingly in the way that alpha males in rom-coms do, like she's a hotdog and he's the relish, or something bawdy like that. They're definitely going to have sex later. Michael B Jordan is sensitive and dependable. So this isn't his punchline. He's there to show that not every man is a pig or obsessed with sex. Some of us have feelings too, you know? And then Miles Teller says something funny. He's the funny one. But cute funny.

Not long after that, the actor Morris Chestnut turns up as a lawyer. "Hey, you look like Morris Chestnut!", someone says. »

Win The Call on Blu-ray

20 January 2014 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of The Call on 27th January, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

Veteran 911 Emergency Call Center operator Jordan (Halle Berry, X-Men) has the kind of job that’s not for the faint of heart: navigating the public’s distress in order to save lives. But when a young woman’s frantic report of a prowler ends tragically, Jordan is devastated. With a supportive cop (Morris Chestnut, Kick-Ass 2) for a boyfriend, maybe it’s time to step back, enjoy life, and teach others the ins and outs of her high-pressure profession.

That lifeline to strangers isn’t over yet, though. When average American teenager Casey (Abigail Breslin, Zombieland), is abducted by a serial killer (Michael Eklund, Watchmen), she manages to place a 911 call from the trunk of the killer’s car. Jordan, leading a group of new recruits through the massive call center operation, »
