Once Upon a Time is knocking on wood — again.
In Season 2’s “Selfless, Brave and True,” August died (from a magical Taser wound?) while trying to warn Emma about Peter Pan’s minion Tamara. Blue was able to save him, but only in the form of his seven-year-old self.
Since August is just a young lad now, it’s likely Bailey will appear only in flashbacks — perhaps some connected to the storybook’s sought-after author? »
Take another look @ revealing images of 5-times Oscar nominated actress Amy Adams aka 'Lois Lane' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", plus video footage of Adams from the December 2014 issue of "Vogue" magazine, photographed by Annie Leibovitz:
During her interview for the magazine, Adams was in Detroit, reprising her role as 'Lois Lane' in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", filming night-scene exteriors in a helicopter.
"Not my favorite," said Adams about the chopper shoot. "I don’t like things with sharp rotors that fly."
"But...when I come on set, I’m like a golden retriever at a dog park, because I’m just so happy to be around people and eager to please."
"I’m a perfectionist...With my work! Not with life. I'm never satisfied with the take.
"I’ll walk away from it, but I could go and go and go. I've had to »

Over the past year or so, news and updates about Zack Snyder.s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have set up the 2016 blockbuster as a gateway to a larger DC Cinematic Universe, but there is another big responsibility that it carries. With the return of Henry Cavill.s Superman, Amy Adams. Lois Lane, Lawrence Fishburne.s Perry White and Diane Lane.s Martha Kent, the film is very much expected to be a sequel to Man of Steel that further develops the Kryptonian superhero. But what exactly does and should that mean? Certainly one of the biggest controversies surrounding Man of Steel was both the fact that Superman wound up killing General Zod and, in the run-up, decimated a huge chunk of Metropolis. Furthermore, after he puts on the blue tights and cape in the movie, we never actually get to see him really be heroic; instead, he is »

* Comedienne Sarah Silverman will star in a half-hour comedy pilot for HBO, our sister site Deadline reports. Written by Secret Diary of a Call Girl creator Lucy Prebble, the untitled project is a comic look at a pathologically honest woman having a mid-life crisis.
When a major filmmaker decides to tell a story about a renowned artist, one expects that the director is painting a kind of self-portrait. That is the case with Mike Leigh’s splendid, thrillingly acted Mr. Turner (also out this month), and that may also be true for Tim Burton’s latest film, Big Eyes. Take a glance at Margaret Keane’s sweet, painted children with their milky, enveloping, entrancing eyes, and you get a feeling of sadness and youthful wonder, as well as a bit of kitsch – all factors omnipresent in Burton’s offbeat fantasies, films like Beetlejuice and Big Fish.
However, Burton is no longer such a gauche visionary, his films more about the inventiveness of their atmosphere than the depth of the performances in them. Big Eyes’ opening credit sequence, which shows several of Keane’s paintings going through a press to make thousands of copies, could »

With all of the new superhero characters that will be flooding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where does that leave Lois Lane? In an interview with Collider, Amy Adams talks about reprising her role, and how her character will fit into this story that is overloaded with new characters. When asked how she will stand out, she says,
“Lois is still sort of like the key to the information, you know? She’s the girl going out and getting it and figuring it out and putting it together and all of that, so she’s very much involved, but I kind of leave the heavy lifting to the boys, you know? So to speak.”
She then goes on to talk about the superhero team, and hints at who she might be sharing some screen time with.
“They’re awesome together. It’s kind of like this big fest of »

The comedy, about an assassination attempt on North Korea leader Kim Jong-un, has been pulled from release after hackers issued a terror threat against cinemas planning to show the film.
The massive security breach at Sony Pictures Entertainment (The Interview's backers) has seen personal emails and data combed over and made public, ripping back the curtain on one of Hollywood's biggest studios and exposing the inner workings of a multinational corporation.
Digital Spy presents a timeline of events below...
June 20: North Korea criticises Sony Pictures over their forthcoming film The Interview. The Seth Rogen and James Franco comedy centres on a TV host and his producer as they head to North Korea on a stealth mission to assassinate leader Kim Jong-un.
In a letter to the Un, the country describes it as "undisguised sponsoring of terrorism, »
Tim Burton has gotten very good at placing his easily identifiable stamp on a number of high profile studio projects. And with good reason. His 3D "Alice in Wonderland" made over a billion dollars worldwide and even supposed flops like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (which he didn't direct but has his name above the title) have proven to be merchandising juggernauts down the line. But with "Big Eyes," Burton returns to small scale, independent filmmaking for the first time in 20 years, following 1994's "Ed Wood." Like "Ed Wood," "Big Eyes" is a true story, and he collaborated once again with screenwriters Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, this time to tell the story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), whose husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) took credit for her famous and fabulously popular paintings. We got to sit down with Burton to discuss what drew him to the project, his switch to digital, »

CBS’ Survivor Cycle 29 finale on Wednesday night drew 9.7 million total viewers and a 2.4 demo rating, steady week-to-week but ticking down from its previous two closers.
That said, it dominated the night in both measures (and likely will tick up once 15 minutes of overrun is factored in). The reunion special retained 7.9 mil/1.9.
Over on NBC, the Michael Buble Christmas special (7.4 mil/1.3) popped 48 percent in audience versus last year while steady in the demo. The Sing-Off (5.1 mil/1.3) was down from both last December’s opener (8.4 mil/2.4, on a Monday) and its year-ago telecast (5.5 mil/1.6, on a Wednesday).

Now that the wildly popular podcast Serial has come to a close, we're ready to watch the murder mystery unfold on the big screen -- and we know just who would play Jay, Sarah Koenig, Adnan Syed, Hae Min Lee and of course, Mr. S.
Photos: The 10 Biggest Breakout Stars of 2014
If you're unfamiliar with the true crime podcast that draws over 1 million listeners per week and is put on by the This American Life producers, Serial reexamines the 1999 murder of an 18-year-old Baltimore high school senior named Hae Min Lee.
Not long before Lee went missing, she had broken up with her boyfriend, then-17-year-old Adnan Syed, an honors student of the Muslim faith who was later tried and convicted for killing her. Adnan is now 33 and serving a life sentence for Hae's murder, but insists in a series of telephone interviews with producer Sarah Koenig that he's innocent.
Ladies and gentlemen, after 13 weeks of blood, water sweat and tears, we have a new Survivor champion.
Five castaways remained at the top of Wednesday’s three-hour San Juan Del Sur finale/reunion combo — Natalie Anderson, Keith Nale, Missy Payne, Jaclyn Schultz and Baylor Wilson — ready to face whatever host Jeff Probst could throw their way.
Baylor’s mother Missy obviously faced the biggest challenge, heading into the final competitions with an injured foot, but the 47-year-old Texan wasn’t about to let it keep her from trying to win (even though she couldn’t compete in the season’s final immunity challenge, »
Parenthood‘s milestone 100th episode is right around the corner — Jan. 8, to be exact — and we’re dreading it, to be honest.
Judging by a batch of new photos that NBC has released from the installment (the show’s first of 2015), Braverman patriarch Zeek will suffer a major health setback. Most of the episode, it seems, will take place at the hospital, where the entire family (including Hank and Joel) gathers to hear the latest news.
Speaking of Joel, the photos also confirm that he and Julia have taken their reconciliation into the bedroom. (In November’s fall finale, the »

Eight years is a long time in the life of a child. While critics are lining up to award Richard Linklater for exploring such an idea, a much larger viewing audience unfamiliar with Boyhood may experience a similar feeling of time passing them by while watching Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Advertising itself as the finale of the soon-to-be billion dollar grossing Night at the Museum trilogy, Secret of the Tomb lays it on thick with pretences of finality and closure. In truth, the film doesn’t bring the journey to a stop, and instead simply hits the blinker on a lucrative franchise vehicle that’s always been operating in cruise control.
Ben Stiller once again straps on nightshift blues and a flashlight as security guard Larry Daley, who spends his evenings corralling the magically sentient exhibits of the Natural History Museum. Over the course of his adventures, »

The long con at the center of Big Eyes is so unbelievable that it almost makes sense that people believed it for so long: Those kitschy paintings of children with enormous peepers that became so popular at the end of the 1950s were not actually made by the outrageous showman Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) but by his suffering-in-secret wife Margaret (Amy Adams), who allowed Walter to take full credit even as her own artistic awakening (and attendant misgivings about the charade) began to come to the fore. In this exclusive clip from the Tim Burton–directed film (out December 25), you can take a look at the contentious Keane marriage in a nutshell: As Margaret timidly offers some resistance to her husband's credit-hogging, Walter browbeats her back into submission with a potent combo of flattery and condescension. "You're Keane, I'm Keane," he says ... and soon, the entire country would be »
