SAG-aftra Election Ending Bitterly With 2000 Strike Still in Dispute

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Voting is ending for a particularly acrimonious SAG-aftra presidential election with results due to be announced as early as Thursday afternoon.

The counting of the ballots, with about a quarter of the 144,000 dues-current members expected to vote, will begin at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday.

The contest has featured accusations of election fraud and bungling the recent contract negotiations (made by Esai Morales and Membership First); negligence on safety issues and allowing massive staff salaries (made by independent stuntman Pete Antico); and Membership First’s alleged incompetence in the 2008 negotiations and its long opposition to the SAG-aftra merger (made by the Unite for Strength faction headed by current president Gabrielle Carteris).

The divisions within SAG-aftra run deep and have existed for the past two decades. Remarkably, the two main factions — the moderate-leaning Unite for Strength and the self-styled progressives of Membership First — have managed to revive the debate over the six-month commercials strike in 2000.

Trailer for Philip K. Dick Anthology Series Electric Dreams!

21 August 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Nice to know someone has been reading my letters! Electric Dreams looks like something I've been waiting for forever - an anthology series based on the works of my favourite author. Add to that an all star cast and a showrunner in BSG's Ron Moore and this look tailor made for me.

This trailer, which is getting pulled from every channel left right and centre so watch quickly, was released by Australian streaming company Stan (who recently produced the Wolf Creek series) and features a little intro with Bryan Cranston who also produced the show.

Steve Buscemi, Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin, Terrence Howard, Timothy Spall and Greg Kinnear headline this mammoth cast.

Weinstein Co. Moves ‘Mary Magdalene’ Back to Easter — and Now Has Just One Oscar Contender

21 August 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Weinstein Co. is moving one of its would-be Oscar hopefuls, Bible epic “Mary Magdalene” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara, out of the expensive awards season to focus on a less competitive spring release on March 30 timed to the Easter holiday.

It’s a fiscally responsible move — but an uncharacteristic one, as Harvey Weinstein has happily let Oscars define his business ever since “Shakespeare in  Love” won best picture in 1997.

TWC has always been willing to make opportunistic changes, but taking Garth Davis’ follow-up to “Lion” out of the fall is a dramatic. It follows the company’s serial pushback of Alicia Vikander vehicle “Tulip Fever,” including many canceled press screenings, as well as a March 9, 2018 release slot for “The Untouchables” remake “The Upside,” starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart.

According to Harvey Weinstein, the reason for pulling “Mary Magdalene” out of the Oscar race is just a matter of time. »

Philip K. Dick’s ‘Electric Dreams’ Trailer: Bryan Cranston’s Sci-Fi Series Could Be the Next ‘Black Mirror’ — Watch

21 August 2017 10:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Philip K. Dick was one of the first science fiction authors to see beyond the genre’s pulp roots and weave philosophical, political, and social questions into his alternate realities. For that reason, Dick’s writing has remained highly influential, even as themes he discussed years ago seem to become increasingly more relevant today. As prolific as he was daring, Dick left behind a seemingly endless supply of stories for many more screen adaptations beyond “The Man in the High Castle,” such as “Electric Dreams,” which recently released a promising new trailer.

Ben Affleck's Trashy Comic-Con Disguise Revealed

19 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

San Diego Comic-Con is a part of summer that a lot of people look forward to every year and for obvious reasons. But it's not always fun for celebrities who have to move around thousands of fans to get to a panel or signing, so most stars choose some pretty interesting costumes to walk around anonymously without having to worry about getting bombarded by fan requests for pictures, autographs, or in Ben Affleck's case, to ask him what the heck is going on with The Batman movie. So, for this year's Comic-Con, Affleck decided to go with a pretty minimal disguise that may have come off as grouchy to all he encountered.

It had been previously reported prior to Comic-Con that Ben Affleck was looking for any excuse to back out of the The Batman project, but the star showed up to a huge round of applause in Hall »

LeBron James Says Trump ‘Made Hate Fashionable Again’ as Stars React to President’s Latest Charlottesville Remarks

16 August 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The immediate backlash President Trump faced on Tuesday only intensified overnight after he doubled down on his assertion that “both sides” were to blame for deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“There are two sides to a story,” Trump insisted on Tuesday, echoing the widely denounced comments he made Saturday, as the violence was unfolding in Virginia.

There were “a lot of bad people in the other group too,” he added in reference to the anti-racist protesters demonstrating against the rally, one of whom, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, was killed when a driver rammed his car into a group of the counter-protesters. »

SAG-AFTRA Presidential Election Heats Up in the Home Stretch

14 August 2017 6:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With 10 days left for members to vote, SAG-aftra’s national election is seeing plenty of attacks as the union’s two major factions denounce each other in a bid to sway the 144,000 performer members.

The minority Membership First group, headed by Esai Morales, has accused the dominant Unite for Strength of bungling the recent negotiations for a new contract, which was ratified by membership on Aug. 7 by a 76-24 margin. The union’s negotiating committee was led by president Gabrielle Carteris, who’s seeking re-election.

“There are over 450 scripted television programs — yet it’s harder than ever for working actors to make a living or get pension and health credits … Because the contracts haven’t kept up with the marketplace,” Membership First said. “We do not support the new travel provisions. It’s a huge give-away that obliterates decades long negotiated travel provisions that benefited performers.”

Godzilla: King of the Monsters director teases connection to '54 original

14 August 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Not gonna lie, I was pretty lukewarm on the 2014 Godzilla remake that's now the lynchpin to the Giant Monsterverse (too dour and not enough Bryan Cranston). However, I am super looking forward to the upcoming sequel King Of The Monsters, not the least of which is the involvement of director Mike Dougherty, who worked on the awesome films Trick 'R Treat and Krampus (the fact that fan-favorites Mothra, Rodan, and King...

Game Of Thrones: who is The Night King?

14 August 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marc Buxton Aug 15, 2017

Game of Thrones looks like it's heading into battle with the White Walkers and thus the Night King. Our Us chums explore his book origins...

So the ending of this week's Game Of Thrones episode was pretty badass, huh? The climactic image of the King in the North, the few remaining members of the Brotherhood Without Banners, Gendry, the Hound, and Tormund Giantsbane are going off to find themselves a Wight. This also means they'll soon be doing battle with the Night King (or for book purists, George R.R. Martin's much cooler name for him, "The Night's King"). You should remember this guy, the White Walker at Hardhome who raised his arms like the Undertaker after a particularly memorable Wrestlemania victory. It's probably one of the most chilling and impressive visuals that Game Of Thrones has ever featured. And it was one of those rare moments »

Revisiting the film of Stephen King's Sleepwalkers

13 August 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rebecca Lea Aug 14, 2017

Our Stephen King screen lookbacks arrive at Sleepwalkers, a movie based on an unpublished short story...

The film: Charles Brady (Brian Krause) and his mother, Mary (Alice Krige) are sleepwalkers, which are a sort of werecat vampires who feed on virgin women in order to survive. The only things that threaten them are cats, who show up wherever they go. After draining a girl in Bodega Bay, they set up residence in Travis, Indiana with their sights set on local teen Tanya Richardson (Mädchen Amick) for their next feed. Mary is one mother you don’t won’t like when she’s hangry.

Bryan Cranston Got Caught Having Sex on a Train During His Honeymoon

11 August 2017 10:26 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Getting caught in the heat of the moment wasn’t quite what Bryan Cranston had in mind for his honeymoon.

The 61-year-old actor made an appearance on Conan Thursday night where he told a hilarious anecdote about a mishap he and his wife had on their honeymoon some 28 years ago.

“My beautiful wife Robin and I, who celebrated our 28th anniversary recently, we were in Europe for our honeymoon and one of the parts of the trip was to go from Switzerland to Italy,” Cranston told host Conan O’Brien, adding that they took a train.

“My beautiful wife Robin and I, who celebrated our 28th anniversary recently --admittedly a cheap applause line -- we were in Europe for our honeymoon and one of the parts of the trip was to go from Switzerland to Italy, and they said, 'Take the train,'” Cranston recalled. “The travel agent said, ‘By the way, the third tunnel is 50 minutes long. It’s traditional for honeymooners to take advantage of that time.’”

“I said, ‘Are you ready to burn seven calories?’” Cranston quipped, noting that his wife wasn’t as enthusiastic about the prospect.

Author: Zehra Phelan

Channel 4 are about to embark on a new ten part sci-fi anthology series in September called Electric Dreams with a whole host of actors you may just recognise and we have three first look images from the series which include Doctor Strange actor Benedict Wong and Free Fire’s Jack Reynor.

Related: Exclusive Interview with Benedict Wong on Doctor Strange.

The series, which is inspired by Philip K. Dick’s renowned short stories, will feature ten standalone episodes where each are set in a different and unique world – some which lie in the far reaches of the universe and time and others which are much, much closer to home. While the stories may be worlds apart, central to each is the poignant and warm exploration of the importance and significance of humanity.

Adapted by a number of leading writers and directors, the Electric Dreams series will »

Netflix is top of the pile.Scroll down for full list

Netflix teen drama 13 Reasons Why has edged out Amazon’s The Grand Tour as the most in-demand digital series in the UK, according to research by data firm Parrot Analytics.

Netflix is responsible for seven of the top 10 originals in the second quarter of 2017, though Amazon’s The Grand Tour and Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which aired on Channel 4, completed the top three.

Amazon’s The Man In The High Castle is also in the top 10 and Parrot’s European director Courtney Williams expects the Jeff Bezos-led firm to catch up to Netflix in the near future.
