TNT has decided to keep Sean Bean alive. Well, at least for one more season. The cable network has renewed the actor’s freshman drama Legends for a second season, despite the show receiving very mixed reviews from critics. For those who don’t know, Legends centers on Bean’s Martin Odum,  an elite undercover operative “who has an uncanny ability to transform himself into a different person for each job. But his own identity comes into question when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn’t who he thinks he is.” In addition to Bean, the series stars Ali Larter (Heroes) as Crystal McGuire, Tina Majorino (Grey’s Anatomy) as Maggie Harris, Amber Valletta (Revenge) as Martin’s wife Sonya, Mason Cook (The Goldbergs) as Martin’s son Aiden, Steve Harris (Justified) as Nelson Gates, and Morris Chestnut (ABC’s V reboot) as Tony Rice.

28 October 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Content Media has bulked up its Afm slate with international rights to the rom-com starring Emmy Rossum and Justin Long.

IFC Films has acquired North American rights and set a December release on the time-hopping tale about a seemingly odd couple who meet at the Hollywood Cemetery during a meteor shower. Eric Winter also stars.

“I fell in love with Comet when I read the script many months ago, and it has lived up to its ambitious expectations,” said Content Media president of film Jamie Carmichael

“The film has a unique quality – it’s funny, emotional and very beautiful – and wonderfully clever too.  It will have couples of all ages talking about Emmy and Justin long into the night!”

“With his feature film debut, Sam Esmail has created a romance for the ages,” said Jonathan Sehring, president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films. “Emmy and Justin shine in this chronicle of a star-crossed relationship.”

‘Whiplash,’ ‘St. Vincent,’ 13 More Join Crowded Specialty Box Office: Preview

9 October 2014 5:19 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Intense music drama Whiplash, already a big winner at Sundance and the Deauville American Film Festival earlier this year, should drum up plenty of audience interest in its debut this weekend, even though it faces a crowded specialty market that also features several other notable newcomers, including the Bill Murray comedy St. Vincent, Hilary Swank‘s You’re Not You and Jeremy Renner‘s Kill the Messenger. All are what I’d call “big” specialty releases, with big names attached that should attract big attention.

The weekend also includes what I’d call some “small” releases, including documentaries The Overnighters (another Sundance winner) and I Am Ali, about the former heavyweight boxing champion, alongside the Mormon Church-backed Meet the Mormons. All will be clawing for attention in a market that’s seen more than 30 films debut in the past three weeks.

That said, Whiplash should be a real career turner »

You-Hoo: Wolfe’s Als Drama Tries To Balance Sentiment With Schmaltz

Hilary Swank seems attracted to playing daunted heroines, continually up against considerable odds—the homophobic rednecks of Boys Don’t Cry, the white trash family unit of Million Dollar Baby, Gary Marshall’s ineptness in New Year’s Eve, and recently the misogyny of the Old West in The Homesman. Her latest drama, You’re Not You, finds the actress experiencing the deteriorating effects of Als (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder. Though winning two Oscars, Swank isn’t always the herald of great cinema, more often than not making questionable choices for someone of her caliber and talent. Flanked by co-stars like Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel, a director whose last film was Nights in Rodanthe (2008), and co-written by Shana Feste, the director of sugary sap like The Greatest (2009) and Country Strong »

Reese Witherspoon Delivers 'Legally Blonde' Message for #TeamWill

30 August 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Reese Witherspoon earns her angel wings this weekend, climbing into one of her old pink Elle Woods costumes from Legally Blonde to deliver a special video message to Will, a 4-year-old boy putting up a very tough fight against cancer. A little over a week ago, Reese was forwarded an email from Will's mom Julie. You can read it here:

Legally Blonde is on the hospital TV and Will has been watching it, like four times a day. When he feels good enough to want something, he wants Legos and "The Pink Girl". He finds comfort in it and loves the Pink Lady. So, if anyone knows Reese Witherspoon, and she would be willing to take a picture of herself holding a note that says "TeamWill", or any other shout out that she can dream up, she would give a little four year old boy fighting cancer (and even more »

'You're Not You' Trailer Starring Hilary Swank

28 August 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While many weren't too familiar with Als (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease) before this summer, the hundreds of Ice Bucket Challenge videos helped spread awareness of this degenerative disease. Today, we have the first trailer for You're Not You, which stars Hilary Swank as Kate, a pianist who becomes stricken with Als.

Based on Michelle Wildgen's book, this drama follows Kate and her husband (Josh Duhamel) as they find the most unorthodox caretaker in young college student Bec (Emmy Rossum) as they both change each other's lives. Take a look at the first footage, along with two new photos from director George C. Wolfe's adaptation, co-starring Loretta Devine, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter and Marcia Gay Harden, arriving in theaters and VOD platforms October 10.

Trailers: Foxcatcher, Rosewater, Rewrite, You

28 August 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A second teaser trailer is out for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," the Steve Carell and Channing Tatum-led drama which looks to be one of the biggest players in the upcoming awards season following the film's sterling reception at Cannes back in May.

The first trailer is out for "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart's directorial debut "Rosewater". The story follows Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal), who was arrested for espionage while covering the Iranian elections in 2009 and held for nearly four months. The film, which opens in November, premiered the other day at the Venice Film Festival to respectable but not gushing reviews.

Next comes the trailer for the Hugh Grant-led rom-com "The Rewrite". Grant stars as a former Oscar-winning screenplay writer long past his glory days who takes on a college teaching job. Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons star.

You’Re Not You Trailer and Images Feature Hilary Swank as a Pianist Battling Als

28 August 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The trailer for director George C. Wolfe’s new film You’re Not You has some incredible timing on its side.  Thanks to the viral phenomenon of those ubiquitous ice bucket challenge videos, I think it’s safe to say that awareness for Als is at an all-time high.  The film stars Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who is stricken with the disease and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. Going off the trailer, the film looks well made if not a little conventional.  It’s hard for me to fault these kinds of movies for that though, we all need to find the uplifting elements in any tragic scenario I suppose.  Hit the jump for the You’re Not You trailer.  The film also stars Josh Duhamel, Marcia Gay Harden, Jason Ritter, Ali Larter, and Loretta Devina and opens in theaters and On Demand on October 10th. »
