Poster and trailer for comedy Amanda & Jack Go Glamping starring Amy Acker and David Arquette

17 October 2017 2:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release next month, a new poster and trailer have been release for writer-director Brandon Dickerson’s upcoming comedy Amanda & Jack Go Glamping which stars Amy Acker, David Arquette, Adan Canto, and June Squibb; check them out below…

With his marriage on rocky ground, dejected one-hit author Jack Spencer (David Arquette, Never Been Kissed) agrees to go “glamping” with his wife, Amanda (Amy Acker, Marvel’s “The Gifted”), in search of a spark. When they realize they’ve been double booked with honeymooning hipsters and the handsome, eco-friendly landowner, Nate (Designated Survivor’s Adan Canto), enters the picture, a romantic getaway turns into a group ordeal. Jack must learn to get over himself as he dives deep off the grid into a comedic exploration of love, failure, and relevance with some help from miniature donkeys and the sage wisdom of local Jude (Academy Award® nominee June Squibb).

Amy Acker and David Arquette Go on a Camping Trip From Hell in 'Amanda & Jack Go Glamping' Trailer (Exclusive)

17 October 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There's not much in the way of glamour in Amanda & Jack Go Glamping, an upcoming rom-com in which David Arquette and The Gifted’s Amy Acker star as an unhappily married couple taking a much-needed vacation at a "camping" resort. As you can see in the movie’s trailer, exclusively debuting on Et, there are plenty of hipsters, llamas and one shirtless Adonis of a landowner (Adan Canto), though.

"We are supposed to be saving our marriage," Acker’s Amanda laments to her downer husband at one point in the preview, while Arquette's Jack taunts back, "You are not staying here for us. You’re staying for Magic Mike."

The romantic comedy marks a reunion for Acker and writer-director Brandon Dickerson, as she previously starred in his 2011 drama, Sironia. Amanda & Jack Go Glamping was loosely inspired by Dickerson’s own experiences at the very same glamping retreat, Green Acres, and the movie »

‘The Gifted 1×02: rX’ Review

11 October 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White | Executive Producer Matt Nix

Last week’s episode of The Gifted was a good start, and introduced us to the world of the mutants. This week looks at the aftermath of the escape last week, and the repercussions of the Strucker’s actions.

With Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer) in the hands of the Sentinel Services they start to apply pressure to make him talk. His family now with the Mutant Network, Kate (Amy Acker) finds herself working with Eclipse (Sean Teale) to help Blink (Jamie Chung). Last week I felt things were a little rushed and Reed and Kate didn’t get much time as characters to connect with the audience. Thankfully this week there is more of a focus on them, including a flashback to a mutant event »

Episode 2 of the Fox drama led with a flashback to a year ago, where a Strucker family bowling outing (and Lauren’s deft flick-of-the-wrist cheating) got interrupted by the outburst of a young mutant girl. Reed introduced himself to the girl’s dad, only to urge the two of them to slip quietly away, lest the girl get brought up on charges for damaging property with her powers. »

Marvel’s X-Men series The Gifted scores almost 5 million viewers with premiere

7 October 2017 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Monday night, Fox launched its latest comic book adaptation with the premiere of Marvel’s X-Men series The Gifted.

Coming off the back of decent reviews [read ours here], the new show managed to score a decent 1.5 rating in the key 18-49 demo, with 4.9 million viewers in Live+ Same Day numbers.

Fox will no doubt be hoping that the series manages to maintain these numbers, particularly as Gotham has slumped to series lows with its new fourth season.

The Gifted also managed to top the premiere of Marvel’s other new show, with Inhumans premiering to a 0.9 rating and 3.9 million viewers on ABC last week.

‘The Gifted 1×01: eXposed’ Review

4 October 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White | Executive Producer Matt Nix

It should come as no surprise that Fox are fully utilising the X-Men world to dip into television. Marvel have been using other characters in their universe well, it makes sense for Fox to use the ones they have access to. After creating something as good as Legion though, can The Gifted make its own mark in the mutant world?

When Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer) finds that his two children are mutants, he makes a quick escape. A lawyer used to work in a system that looks to incarcerate mutants, he knows he must protect them and Kate (Amy Acker), his wife. Looking for help from the Mutant Liberation Front, it is not long before the Sentinel Services are hunting them.

Where Do The Gifted and Marvel's Inhumans Rank Among TV's Superhero Shows?

3 October 2017 1:12 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Mutants. Inhumans. Defenders. Comic book characters are still invading the small screen left and right. So far this season's new additions include Fox's The Gifted, based on the X-Men characters, and Marvel's Inhumans on ABC, the story of the Inhuman royal family led by Black Bolt and Medusa. One of these shows was pretty great! The other? Pretty bad! The Gifted follows a family on the run from the mutant-hunting government. They join up with the mutant underground—the X-Men are missing.

The Gifted Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘eXposed’

3 October 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the series premiere of The Gifted

To be honest, knowing nothing about the X-Men besides Legion (and that show’s not exactly training wheels), Stephen Moyer and, even more so, Amy Acker were my first reasons to watch The Gifted. Then came Jamie Chung, and her solid guest arc on GothamEmma Dumont, who falls under the Bunheads rule that anyone from the cast of Bunheads is always a reason to watch; and Garrett Dillahunt, who hasn’t appeared on the show thus yet, but can do no wrong since his terminator days on The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

To tee off this review, however, I’d like to start with a new reason I’ve acquired to watch The Gifted: Natalie Alyn Lind. I had completely forgotten Lind’s recurring role on Gotham, but Lauren Strucker beats Silver St. Cloud any day, and as the older »

The Gifted “rX” Promo Is Just What The Doctor Ordered

3 October 2017 8:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite being a lifelong fan of the X-Men, I must confess that I had some reservations heading into the series premiere of The Gifted. To put it mildly, I wondered if such an endeavor could be capably handled on a major network, especially considering that its roster was made up by mostly D-list characters. Thankfully, my worries were put to bed as Bryan Singer, Matt Nix and the rest of the crew proved that this franchise has so much depth that it makes failure difficult. Face it, Marvel: Your best and most interesting characters all belong to Fox.

With that, it’s exciting to see that next week’s episode, “rX,” looks to be every bit as thrilling as the pilot episode. Truth be told, we wouldn’t doubt if some snippets here were culled from episodes to follow, as teasing what’s to come in the foreseeable future isn’t unheard of in television, »

‘The Gifted’ Review: Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Series Would Benefit from a ‘Legion’ of Better Ideas

2 October 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Perhaps the main issue with “The Gifted” is the same one facing most TV spinoffs of bigger properties: It feels like “X-Men”-lite.

Despite solid direction from Bryan Singer, who first successfully brought Wolverine, Cyclops, and Storm to the big screen in 2000, and above-average dialogue from creator Matt Nix, the pilot episode of Fox’s new superhero side story still comes across like it’s trying to be bigger than it really is, while simultaneously feeling far too familiar.
