[caption id="attachment_51355" align="aligncenter" width="443"] (ABC/Bob D'Amico)[/caption]

Daniel Ditomasso has left the Conviction TV show at ABC, starring Hayley Atwell as attorney Hayes Morrison.

The Morrison siblings are the children of a former U.S. President and their mother is running for the Senate. Deadline says the Jackson character is, ..."the family’s golden child, who also happens to be a top-end lawyer. Initially conceived as a guest star, the role was upgraded to a series regular in the pilot and cast with Ditomasso." Reportedly, the part will now be taken in another direction.

The 10 Best Performances From The X-Men Franchise

X-Men: Apocalypse Gallery 1 of 30   

Click to skip

X-Men: Apocalypse has arrived in theatres and the general reaction has been rather muted, with the liveliest responses being credited to a genuinely strong performance from Michael Fassbender, the ridiculous over the top nature of Oscar Isaac’s villain and what has to be the oddest, most nonsensical chronology in any film universe ever.

With so little love directed at Bryan Singer’s latest effort, it’s easy to look back and reminisce on the highlights of the series (in a series with admittedly a lot of lows). Much of those highlights have come from the character building and performances of these characters – many of whom who have become iconic due to the actors playing them.

X-Men: The real Apocalypse is its continuity!

24 May 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black attempts to make sense of the continuity of the X-Men franchise…

Have you ever attempted to make sense of the X-Men movie continuity? As in pick apart the entire timeline of events across the eight, soon to be nine films in the franchise? Of course not, you all have lives. You have friends and family and loved ones, and probably spend time with them. I, on the other hand, give a worrying amount of time over in my brain space to consider these things, and recent conversation with my good friend Lee Chrimes, ostensibly about the merits (or lack thereof) of the brand new X-Men: Apocalypse, led to a very deep exploration of X-Men chronology which drove us toward one inescapable conclusion: the writers have no idea, and are probably hoping we’re past the point of worrying about it. Well I have news for you, Simon Kinberg – this matters. »

Quantum Break Review

1 April 2016 1:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you were to poll a large group of gamers regarding which developers they consider to have the best overall track record, you’d likely get a lot of repeated answers. Many would look to Rockstar and its studios, or Naughty Dog, which is another incredibly talented team. Neither would be wrong, nor would an assortment of other answers. That said, one developer that would make the top of my list, and maybe wouldn’t receive the recognition it deserves, is Finland’s Remedy Entertainment. They’re the folks who brought us such great interactive experiences as Max Payne, Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.

Remedy is back this month with a new and very ambitious project. Of course, I’m talking about Quantum Break, which is a game that was first shown all the way back at the Xbox One’s reveal event. It captivated our attention then, »

Quantum Break's Got A New Trailer.. And It Looks Awesome

11 March 2016 12:26 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Come as you are all Remedy fans. Check out this fantastic new footage.

With the long awaited April 5th release date looming over after a borderline-torturously long development cycle, Remedy has released the official cinematic trailer for the upcoming riveting and hard-hitting thriller.

While I can't comment on the gameplay yet (but frankly, can't wait to try it for myself) what Remedy shows us in their latest footage release is an absolutely gorgeous and vibrant take on a time-driven experience. As someone who adores Life Is Strange and thoroughly enjoyed Timeshift as one of my first PS3 titles, anyone who knows me and my gaming tastes knows I love the concept of time travel and control in gaming and all of the possible game mechanics that can come out of it.

With visual performances from a stellar cast ranging from X-men's Shawn Ashmore to Lord of the Rings' Dominic Monaghan »

9 March 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Eddie Cahill (CSI: NY) has signed on for the male lead alongside Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) in ABC’s upcoming legal drama pilot Conviction.

Cahill will play “the confident and self-assured New York District Attorney Wayne Wallis. Incredibly handsome, magnetic and charismatic, Wallis radiates charm, smarts and political power; he has a clear-cut political future that is as brilliant as his million dollar smile; he is politically ambitious and sharp as a tack. Wallis announces the creation of the Conviction Integrity Unit — and appoints Hayes (Atwell) to lead the charge. There is a history between the two of them — and the dynamic is equal parts lust and hatred.”

Conviction has been created by Liz Freidman and Liz Friedlander, and stars Atwell as “the brilliant but ne’er-do-well daughter of a former president, who is blackmailed into taking a job as the head of Los Angeles’ newly created Conviction Integrity Unit. »

There’s a thin line between love and hate, and you can expect Eddie Cahill to dance it with Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) in ABC’s Conviction pilot. The CSI: NYer has been cast as the project’s male lead, our sister site Deadline reports.

He names Atwell’s Hayes head of the unit… and we’re sure that has nothing to do with the fact that they’ve got history, »

Video Game Preview – Hands On with Quantum Break

Calum Petrie gets hands on with Quantum Break

During the week I was lucky enough to get hands on with the latest creation from the great development team at Remedy Games. Quantum Break is a third person shooter with an extremely interesting twist on the cover based shooter model, thrown in with impressive motion capture and mind bending visual effects; Quantum Break is the game that Xbox gamers have been missing from their lists. 

Quantum Break uses the concept of time at its core to use as the story telling technique, the player’s unnatural abilities and also the big bad at the end of the game. They have used the simple concept of time and broken it down into a seen how far they can stretch and shape it into their vision.

The cast in this game has characters we know on screen from X-Men films (Shawn Ashmore), Lord »
