Just a quick update regarding Dawn of the Planet of the Apes... Fox has bumped up the film's release date from July 18th to July 11th, 2014. A week sooner? Count us in! There's nothing like monkeying around at the movies. Except for that Tim Burton mess, that is.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was originally scheduled to open in theaters on July 18th, but it’s been announced that we’ll be seeing it one week early. Fast & Furious 7 was previously the only movie set to open on July 11th, but Fox has moved Dawn of the Planet of the Apes into that weekend as well. This is likely due to the fact that it’s expected Universal will delay Fast & Furious 7.

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth¹s dominant species. The vultures are circling. Fox's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes moves up from 7/18/14 to 7/11...where FF7 still idles.— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) December 10, 2013 This is a smart move by Fox, as Fast & Furious 7 would have taken a huge chunk of this sequel's box office away even during its second week of release. Directed by Matt Reeves, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer.

BBC America has picked up the second season of Atlantis after its big debut following the Doctor Who anniversary special.
In an interesting development, ABC Family has ordered a full season of its upcoming drama Chasing Life, according to Deadline. Since it has yet to debut, that suggests the network has really liked episodes made so far.
For a while, The Food Network did well by dropping most of the cooking shows in favor for lifestyle programming and reality shows. However, now it’s losing viewers and Vulture theorizes that it might be the lack of cooking shows that’s causing it. And it’s not that viewers would be lured back to wanting to watch Good Eats on a channel full of Cutthroat Kitchens. The problem is, the channel no longer has a way to nurture promising talent.

Amongst the upcoming film to TV adaptations in the genre is SyFy's '12 Monkeys' planned series. The show, based on the 1995 time-travelling thriller from director Terry Gilliam, is being turned into a 60 minute currently by Universal Cable Productions and Atlas Entertainment. 'Fringe' star Kirk Acevedo (below) is the latest to join the cast and will line up alongside the already cast Aaron Stanford ('The Hills Have Eyes'), Amanda Schull ('One Tree Hill'), Zeljko Ivanek ('24') and Noah Bean. The original feature starred both Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt. Acevedo can be currently seen starring AMC's 'The Walking Dead' as Mitch, the Govenor's new right-hand man. »
Ever since HBO's gritty prison drama "Oz," we've been big fans of Kirk Acevedo; and it's good to see the actor getting some high profile roles lately, including a stint on this season of "The Walking Dead." Next up for Kirk? He's heading to Syfy!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Acevedo has boarded the NBC Universal-owned cable network's "12 Monkeys" drama pilot. Based on Terry Gilliam's feature film of the same name that starred Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt, "12 Monkeys" centers on a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.
Acevedo will play Ramse, Cole's ("Nikita's" Aaron Stanford) closest friend in the apocalyptic future. He's clever and fiercely loyal and helped Cole survive the destruction of civilization. While Cole travels through time, Ramse proves »

The Walking Dead is slowly becoming the kind of show that commands respect from people like myself who enjoy smart television while also getting a bizarre pleasure out of the struggles of living in a zombified world. The trickiest hurtle The Walking Dead has come up against in its evolution has been the Governor. Last week was a reset for a misused character and this week the necessary steps were taken to get the Governor back to a place where he can be properly feared. We didn’t really need a two-part story completely surrounding the Governor, but the end result is good so I won’t complain too much. The Governor (or Brian, as he’s still calling himself) reveals his true colours while still grappling with the ambiguity he was always meant to have. While last season, he was never properly shown as a complicated character, he just »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the "Dead Weight" episode of AMC's The Walking Dead.] With just one episode remaining in the first half of The Walking Dead's fourth season, the AMC zombie drama connected the second half of the Governor's recent backstory with Rick's present-day group, setting the stage for the duo to finally come face-to-face. During the penultimate episode, the seemingly reformed Governor (David Morrissey) doesn't last long, killing Martinez and his No. 2, Pete (Enver Gjokaj of Dollhouse) and enlisting his brother Mitch (Kirk Acevedo, Fringe) to be his new right-hand man

Thanksgiving is coming for the Reagan family, too -- but if their anticipation of the holiday wasn't tempered by crime concerns, it wouldn't be "Blue Bloods."
Maria (Marisa Ramirez) had a particularly rough time with family matters in "Bad Blood," Friday's (Nov. 22) episode of the CBS police drama written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly and directed by Robert Harmon, who also has worked with series star Tom Selleck on all but one of the "Jesse Stone" TV movies.
A murder investigation began for Maria and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) outside a Spanish Harlem bar, but they soon went in to interrogate the very enthusiastic, soccer-watching patrons. They came up empty on suspects, until a security tape revealed someone Maria recognized (guest star Kirk Acevedo, "Oz") .
Danny and Maria went to find the man, nicknamed "Tic-Tac" -- and while chasing him, Maria made a side run at him, sending him through a store's glass door. »
Yes, there Are other shows on in the next few days, big shows, shows we also love. Like The Walking Dead. We learned a bit about what the Governor’s been doing since his rampage last week, and now we can learn more in the “Inside Episode 406″ and “Making of Episode 406″ featurettes below.
The “Making Of’ featurette is about the pit battle between the Governor’s bare hands and a number of walkers. You know it went well when the crew laughs and the end, saying “that was so awesome!” You can see the whole scene as it was broadcast in the “Talked About” clip.
Then as the icing on the delicious undead cake, check out a sneak peek clip from the next episode. Dig in:

If anything can propel a supporting player to a series' forefront, it's to give the character a problematic relative.
Thus, Marisa Ramirez -- alias Detective Danny Reagan's (Donnie Wahlberg) NYPD partner Maria Baez on CBS' "Blue Bloods" -- gets considerable screen time in Friday's (Nov. 22) episode "Bad Blood." Kirk Acevedo ("Oz," "Fringe") guest stars as Baez's estranged brother "Tic-Tac," an ex-drug addict who's the prime suspect in a murder she and Danny probe.
"You finally get to learn a little bit of the backstory of Maria," Ramirez tells Zap2it, "at least between her and her brother. You also find out why she became a cop ... it had to do with him.
"Danny is still trying to support his partner, and when you have family involved in real life, you would be taken off the case. Because they're so close as partners, though, he wants her to be there for »

"The Walking Dead" will be welcoming two more characters into the Governor's storyline in the upcoming episode, "Dead Weight." Though they're new to the AMC zombie series, viewers will likely recognize the two actors from their previous TV roles.
Both new cast members can be seen in the above Zap2it exclusive photo. Kirk Acevedo, best known for his roles in "Fringe," "Band of Brothers" and "Oz," plays Mitch (left) in the new episode. Joining him is "Dollhouse" and "Vegas" alum Enver Gjokaj as Pete (right).
It's unclear what role they play exactly, but it seems likely they have joined with the Governor's men after they parted ways with the former villain. Standing behind the two men are the Governor's newfound family that he became close with in last week's "Live Bait."
The synopsis for "Dead Weight" reads: "A new and scary chapter is unfolding at a camp outside the prison. »
Rise of the Planet of the Apes had no right to be as brilliant as it was. An intelligent, moving and incredibly enjoyable science fiction film, it worked as both a remake of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes and a reboot of the series.
Today, a series of deleted scenes in animatic form have arrived online via ComicBookMovie, showing the apes wreaking havoc. Thankfully they were deleted as they would have been totally out of place, almost entirely comedic. Check them out here....
A sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes is to be released next year entitled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which will find Caesar and his ape companions in a battle with the last few humans. Andy Serkis returns to the cast as Caesar alongside Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises), Keri Russell (Mission: Impossible III »
