Arrow's Juliana Harkavy Clears the Air About Dinah and Diggle's New Vibe

8 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on The CW’s Arrow (now airing Thursdays at 9/8c), while Oliver looks into who is trying to out him as Green Arrow, Dinah Drake has her own mystery to solve — what’s digging at Diggle?

But in the season premiere alone, the new intensity between Black Canary and secret-keeping Spartan has raised a few eyebrows among viewers. TVLine hopped on the phone with Juliana Harkavy, who is now a series regular on the superhero drama, to explore the new Dinah/Diggle dynamic and talk about the love behind the hateful Canary clashes.

Amazing New Arrow Trailer Offers Deepest Look Yet At Season 6

10 October 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While I imagine that there are many of you out there who, like me, have been watching Arrow since the pilot episode aired and will remain on board until the very end, there still remains a sizable chunk of the viewing audience who needs convincing in order to invest their time in any given show. Fortunately enough, a newly released trailer perfectly illustrates why we should all stand by Oliver Queen for the foreseeable future.

As good of a job as the last significant trailer did when it came to whetting our appetites, you may agree with me in saying that this is the kind of preview we should’ve gotten all along. Granted, some inclusions may have been impossible before now because those scenes simply hadn’t been filmed, but I think you know what I mean.

5 October 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Oliver Queen is “smiling a lot more” in Season 6 of The CW’s Arrow. And so, in turn, is series star Stephen Amell.

Coming off what he recently ranked as his second-favorite season ever (trailing only the freshman run), Amell likes what he is seeing thus far of Season 6, which premieres Oct. 12 on a new night — Thursdays at 9/8c, leading out of Supernatural.

Lin Shaye Returns in Trailer for Horror Sequel 'Insidious: The Last Key'

5 September 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This one is different, though. The haunted house is my family's house." Universal has unveiled an official trailer for the horror sequel Insidious: The Last Key, also known as just Insidious 4, since this is the latest in this on-going horror franchise. Perhaps the final sequel considering it's called The Last Key? Lin Shaye returns as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist who ends up being terrorized in her own home by the demons that have been haunting houses ever since Insidious in 2010. Shaye is joined in the cast by Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, Kirk Acevedo, Javier Botet, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Tessa Ferrer, Ava Kolker and Marcus Henderson. I was into the first two Insidious films, but totally lost interest after it became a "franchise". Have a look if you want.

Paranormal investigator probes her own inner demons in Insidious: The Last Key trailer.

“Be careful, you’re about to touch it,” a paranormal investigator is warned in the first trailer for Insidious: The Last Key, the fourth film in the Insidious horror franchise. The mystic also has to touch on her own past as she ventures deep into the further to end the evil. She doesn’t have memories, she has scars.

Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell, who directed Insidious: Chapter Three and wrote the screenplays for the previous three movies in the franchise, wrote the script this time, too. Insidious: The Last Key is directed by Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), who is new to the series. The film is produced by Saw and The Conjuring director James Wan.

First Trailers For Insidious: The Last Key Unlock A Nerve-Shredding Sequel

5 September 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Horror comes home in the creepy first trailers for Insidious: The Last Key.

Featuring a somber narration from Lin Shaye’s series mainstay, Dr. Elise Rainier, today’s first-look promo dials the terror up to 11 when a curious young woman comes face-to-face with a supernatural entity. So far, so familiar.

But where The Last Key sets itself apart is in its personnel behind the scenes. Case in point: Although Insidious co-creator Leigh Whannell penned the screenplay, Blumhouse and Universal Pictures tapped relative newcomer Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan) to direct, and the result is a horror sequel that is decidedly different from its next of kin. Visually, at least.

It’s a wise move for a franchise that was beginning to falter at the box office – Insidious 2 scored a commendable $162 million worldwide, while Chapter 3 struggled to muster anything more than $112m – so here’s hoping Chapter »

Insidious 4 Trailer Unlocks New Terror with The Last Key

5 September 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

That was quick. Just yesterday we heard that the first teaser trailer for Insidious: Chapter 4 was coming soon. Now, it is here in the early morning hours to terrorize those just trying to shake themselves awake with a first cup of coffee. Don't worry, honey, that screaming you hear coming from the kitchen is just Dad trying to catch up on his social media before work. And boy, when you see the opening moments of this sneak peek, you will definitely want to run and hide. It's truly disturbing in only the way an Insidious movie knows how to be.

In yesterday's report, it was noted that this trailer would be just 60 seconds long. That's not actually the case. This is a full-length trailer, and it's pretty scary. What yesterday's report did get right is the title. Insidious: Chapter 4 is definitely called The Last Key, hinting that this »

Wait, there’s another one of these? Not that we were following the “Insidious” franchise all that closely to begin with, but I had no idea the series has already managed to get to four films. Huh. I’m not gonna pretend I have any idea what’s going on in the storyline, so I’ll throw down the information you need to know, and you can take it from there.

Insidious: Chapter 4 Conjures Up Official Title; First Trailer Imminent

4 September 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The British Board of Film Classification has unearthed a listing for Insidious: Chapter 4, revealing the sequel’s subtitle to be The Last Key. But what could it mean?

Thankfully, it won’t be too much longer before we have some footage to mull over; Trailer Track is reporting that The Last Key‘s inaugural teaser, which will likely screen before It this coming weekend, is officially in the can. Clocking in at only 61 seconds in length, this is very much a first-look promo for Insidious: Chapter 4, which is just as well considering modern-day horror films have a tendency to showcase too much, too soon via extensive marketing campaigns.

Behind the lens for this one is Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), who has been faced with the somewhat tricky challenge of delivering a competent successor to Chapter 3, after it conjured up a box office tally in excess »

Preacher season 2 episode 11 review: Backdoors

Ron Hogan Aug 29, 2017

Despite being well-written, something about recent Preacher episodes has made them drag for our reviewer. Spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

2.11 Backdoors

There seems to be a point in every season of a television show where I find my interest beginning to wander. It may not necessarily be the fault of the show, just a symptom of a wandering attention span. If a show is ten episodes, I'm usually fine; if a show stretches out to twelve or thirteen, somewhere near the middle or later in the order, I drift away. I've found myself drifting over the last couple of episodes of Preacher, »

Arrow Ep Teases Michael Emerson’s Mysterious Role

28 August 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although Prometheus most certainly left some big shoes to fill, the creative minds behind Arrow seem to be more than up to the task when it comes to finding a credible threat for Oliver Queen and company to deal with in season 6. Actually, the heroes of Star City will have their work cut out for them because they’ll have to contend with more than just one big bad when things pick up this fall.

Initially, reports coming out of San Diego Comic-Con back in July indicated that Michael Emerson will be playing Richard Dragon, but we now know that to not be the case since Kirk Acevedo has been confirmed for that particular role. That being said, we’re still left wondering the name of Emerson’s character and how he’ll fit in with Dragon and David Nykl’s Anatoly Knyazev – and whomever else will round out their group. »

3.16 No Knock, No Doorbell

Let’s get this out of the way up front: this was an exhilarating episode of Twin Peaks: The Return that gave me chills all over. How could it not be? David Lynch and Mark Frost finally gave us, after withholding it until the sixteenth hour, what we wanted. That said, I still believe this was a weaker episode than the previous one.

Arrow Boss Teases Michael Emerson's 'Fantastic' Debut as Mystery Villain

27 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fans of Michael Emerson‘s turns on Person of Interest, Lost and/or The Practice may get a hint — but only a hint — of his previous TV work when he arrives to make mayhem on The CW’s Arrow this fall.

As trumpeted at the San Diego Comic-Con last month, Emerson is set to recur during Season 6 (premiering Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9/8c) in an undisclosed mystery role. During TVLine’s Fall Preview Q&A with co-showrunner Wendy Mericle, it was confirmed that Emerson will be playing one of at least two main threats to Oliver Queen, another being Fringe alum »
