We Have Your Husband, starring Esai Morales, premieres tonight (8 pm, Lifetime)

12 November 2011 3:39 PM, PST | CapricaTV | See recent CapricaTV news »

Just a reminder that Esai Morales gets kidnapped in the Lifetime film We Have Your Husband tonight at 8 pm.

If you're in the right region, you can see the trailer on Lifetime's site.

Esai was on Ktla News the other day to talk about the film and some of the issues it raises. You can watch the interview here. It includes a couple of clips from the film.

Here is the synopsis:

The chilling true story of one woman’s fight to get her husband released from the hands of kidnappers in Mexico is brought to life in the Lifetime Original Movie, “We Have Your Husband.”

American-born Jayne Valseca (Teri Polo, Meet the Parents, Man Up), her husband Eduardo (Esai Morales, NYPD Blue), the son of a legendary Mexican newspaper publisher, and their two children live an idyllic life on their 1,000 acre ranch outside of a peaceful Mexico town. But »

Blood & Chrome update, new film for Esai Morales, Leah Gibson in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, new interviews with Sasha Roiz and Scott Porter

6 August 2011 2:35 AM, PDT | CapricaTV | See recent CapricaTV news »

Airlock Alpha has the first report from the Battlestar panel at Comic-Con. Richard Hatch, Kevin Grazier, Michael Nankin and Lili Bordan were there, and Michael Taylor had to skip because of surgery. Get better soon, Michael Taylor.

Here is what is happening with Blood and Chrome:

The pilot is not expected to be completed until at least October, especially since the sets were extremely minimal, Bordan said. Hatch told the crowd that Syfy plans to air "Blood & Chrome" as a movie event first, and a backdoor pilot, similar to what was done with "Caprica." It looks like the network is not spending the money to do a miniseries, like it did with "Battlestar Galactica."Also, unless there was a misunderstanding at the panel, they are/were exploring the possibility of showing it in 3D. Read the whole article for more details.

Esai Morales has a new film in the works. »

The SAG Awards wasn't the only big show that was taking place during this previous weekend. The annual DGA Awards took place this past Saturday, filled with a some-what unlikely win from Tom Hooper. "The King's Speech" director went home with the coveted Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film award. Only a few times has the recipient of this award gone on to loose the Best Director Oscar, which means this guy certainly has a great shot of taking a golden boy home next month.

'The King's Speech' wins Directors Guild Award

30 January 2011 4:44 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Tom Hooper of "The King's Speech" has been named the best film director of 2010 by his peers.

Hooper won the Directors Guild of America Award for best feature-film director at the awards Saturday night (Jan. 29), beating out Darren Aronofsky ("Black Swan"), Christopher Nolan ("Inception"), David O. Russell ("The Fighter") and David Fincher ("The Social Network"). And if history holds, Hooper may now be the front-runner to win the Academy Award for best director as well.

Only six times since the DGA began its awards in 1948 has the guild's winner not won the Oscar for best director that year; the last time was in 2002, when Roman Polanski ("The Pianist') beat out DGA winner Rob Marshall of "Chicago." Fincher, Russell, Aronofsky and "True Grit's" Joel and Ethan Coen are the other Oscar nominees for best director.

Other awards at Saturday's ceremony went to Martin Scorsese for the pilot of "Boardwalk Empire, »

Tom Hooper wins the DGA Award for The King's Speech

30 January 2011 2:48 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Director's Guild of America announced the recipients of their awards last night, with English filmmaker Tom Hooper taking home the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for his work on the acclaimed period drama The King's Speech.

It was believed that The Social Network's David Fincher was a strong favourite to receive the accolade, particularly after his success at the Golden Globes earlier this month, while Hooper also fended off competition from fellow nominees Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), Christopher Nolan (Inception) and David O. Russell (The Fighter).

It is very rare that the winner of the DGA's top prize doesn't go on to claim the Best Director gong at the Academy Awards (in fact, it's only happened on six occasions to date), and Hooper must now be considered favourite to collect the Oscar. The King's Speech received the most nominations with twelve including Best Picture, »

DGA Honors ‘The King’s Speech’ Director Tom Hooper as Best Director of 2010

30 January 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Directors Guild of America announced its award winners for achievement in 2010 last night, and the big winner was Tom Hooper, director of The King's Speech. That, in conjunction with the film's victory [1] at the Producers Guild awards, puts the movie as the odds-on favorite to win the Best Picture Oscar, and makes Mr. Hooper a likely win for Best Director as well. The DGA and Academy have gone different ways for Best Director only six times in the past six decades, and I'm not certain this year will make it seven. In Contention [2] points to the difference at the 2003 Oscars, where the relatively young Rob Marshall won the DGA award for Chicago over directors like Martin Scorsese and Roman Polanski. But the Academy went with Roman Polanski as Best Director for The Pianist, even as Chicago won Best Picture. So will a more experienced director like Darren Aronofsky, David O. Russell »

Tom Hooper Wins Directors Guild of America Top Honors for 'The King's Speech'

29 January 2011 10:33 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Not as much a stunner, but it's definitely an upset win as last year's winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) awarded Tom Hooper the top prize at tonight's 63rd Annual Directors Guild of America Awards for his work on The King's Speech. Hooper beat out the predicted front-runner David Fincher (The Social Network) along with fellow nominees Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), Christopher Nolan (Inception) and David O. Russell (The Fighter).

How did David Fincher take the news? "New York Times" columnist Melena Ryzik posted to Twitter saying, "David Fincher split the second after Tom Hooper's name was announced."

This news comes on the heels of The King's Speech racking up 12 Oscar nominations this past Tuesday and Hooper's win at the DGA tonight has pretty much swung all award season momentum its way. Should the film take home the Screen Actors Guild Best Ensemble award tomorrow night I have a pretty »
