Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 6 Review: Skin In the Game

10 November 2016 2:49 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Every cop show has the episode where someone close to a main character is the prime suspect. Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 6 is one of those episodes. It doesn't give the audience anything new, but it does put Elias Koteas front and center as Olinsky gets to sit on the hot seat.

One of Olinsky's oldest friends, baseball player and recovering addict Jake McCoy, is in Cpd's crosshairs when teenage prostitute Maya Collins (that's Violett Beane of The Flash fame) winds up dead in his home. Jake naturally swears up and down that he didn't murder the girl.

It comes out right away that Olinsky is friends with Jake but it's a bit surprising that he doesn't volunteer that information. The team - and the audience - have to find out when Antonio finds a picture of Jake with Olinsky in the house. And Olinsky then gets tetchy with Antonio when »

Chicago P.D. Season 4 Premiere Recap: Did Lindsay Turn in Voight?

21 September 2016 8:15 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago P.D.‘s Season 4 premiere on Wednesday night can be summed up as a staring contest between Voight and Lindsay.

He watches her like a hawk, waiting to see if she’ll spill the beans about what he did to Justin’s killer, and she denies that anything’s wrong even though she keeps looking at him pointedly. But someone has to break eventually. At first, Lindsay tells Commander Crowley that she and the grieving Voight met up and just talked that fateful night, because the gruff sergeant is so big on sharing his feelings.

Having actually seen Voight at the crime scene, Lindsay is “torn” about revealing what she knows to Commander Crowley about her boss’ act of vengeance following his son Justin’s death. The rest of the team, however, is “a little conflicted, but less so than you might imagine” when Season 4 premieres this Wednesday (NBC, 10/9c), executive producer Matt Olmstead says. »

Zoo Season 2 Finale Review: The End of the World As We Know It

7 September 2016 2:51 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

What a great day at the zoo!

There really wasn't much more you could ask for in a finale because between Zoo Season 2 Episode 12 and Zoo Season 2 Episode 13 there were several deaths, a character return, a cure released for the animal apocalypse, a time jump, and well, the end of the world as we know it.

Bravo, Zoo, bravo!!

Things started with the team's decision to stop the Noah Objective. Being reunited with Logan was a surprise, but learning Jamie wasn't a cold blooded killer after all was a relief. He was still fighting for Team Zoo Crew, too, which was another.

Davies: What is this a laser pointer? How pathetically appropriate.

Mitch: He called my bluff.

Jamie: It wasn't a bluff! [truck explodes]

Davies: You just killed the Noah Objective.

Britney Spears Biopic Is Coming to Lifetime in 2017

24 August 2016 4:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few years, the Lifetime Network has been in the process of rebanding itself, debuting controversial "unauthorized" movies that went behind-the-scenes of hit sitcoms like Saved By the Bell and Full House. Their rebranding has also included the Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig thriller A Deadly Adoption and the cult-classic remake of Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? from James Franco. Today we have word that the network has ordered a biopic centering on pop icon Britney Spears, simply entitled Britney.

TV Line reports that the network has cast Natasha Bassett as the Princess of Pop, although no other cast members have come aboard quite yet.

Low Budget Thriller Lights Out Passes $100M at Global Box Office

21 August 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lights Out, the acclaimed horror hit teaming first-time feature director David F. Sandberg and producer James Wan, has surpassed the $100 million mark, it was announced today by Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, Worldwide Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

Movie Review – Lights Out (2016)

21 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lights Out, 2016.

Directed by David F. Sandberg.

Starring Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Alexander Dipersia, Billy Burke, Alicia Vela Bailey, and Maria Bello.


When her little brother, Martin, experiences the same events that once tested her sanity, Rebecca works to unlock the truth behind the terror, which brings her face to face with an entity that has an attachment to their mother, Sophie.

It’s a unique feat to make a film which you start to forget even as you’re still watching it. That’s been achieved by the latest jump-scare shocker Lights Out; a run of the mill horror that riffs on nearly every horror cliché there is.

Opening with a strong nightmarish sequence in a factory, the premise of Lights Out is intriguing and made for a terrifying short film from director David Sandberg. As a feature length film it is bloated and quite dull. Rebecca (Palmer »

20 August 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After pulling in about $4 million on Friday, “Ben-Hur” is looking at a dismal opening weekend at the box office in the range of $11 million at 3,084 locations.

The film, from Paramount and MGM, is eyeing a fourth or fifth place finish this weekend despite a big budget of about $100 million.

Sony and Annapurna’s second weekend of “Sausage Party” is eyeing a second weekend in the $15 million range at 3,103 locations after a $5 million Friday.

The tight box office race is only squeezed tighter by Focus’ launch of the animated adventure “Kubo and the Two Strongs” from Laika, which looks to open to about $12 million at 3,260 locations. Its »

Lights Out Helmer David Sandberg Defends Movie’s Eerie Final Scene

1 August 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it may have traded a compelling story for jump scares and shock value, David Sandberg’s directorial debut Lights Out has hit the ground running, conjuring up a box office haul of $63.6 million worldwide – off the back of a $4.9 million budget, no less – along with a full-blown sequel at New Line.

But one point of contention that some viewers took issue with was the film’s eerie ending. It’s something that A.V. Club came down hard on in their review, prompting David Sandberg to issue a response to clarify his creative choice. We’ve included both the review extract and statement after the jump to safeguard you from spoilers.
