[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Battle Creek" (CBS - Midseason) The Pitch: "Hi! My name is Vince Gilligan. You might remember me from such shows as..." "Sold!" "Wait, but I'm not actually going to be available to do anything here." "We *said* 'Sold.'" "Woo-hoo!" Quick Response: Vince Gilligan's script for "Battle Creek," which sat in a desk for a decade before getting a straight-to-series order from CBS, is Not "Breaking Bad." It's a goofier, lighter brew than what you're expecting and if I had to compare it to anything in Gilligan's filmography, I might actually go with something earlier and more comedic, like "Home Fries," which Nobody at CBS wants to hear. I liked "Home Fries." It's kooky and charming. "Battle Creek" is also kooky and charming, but I can't say with certainty that that's what anybody at CBS is going to want it to be long-term, a long-term that will take »

While many weren't too familiar with Als (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease) before this summer, the hundreds of Ice Bucket Challenge videos helped spread awareness of this degenerative disease. Today, we have the first trailer for You're Not You, which stars Hilary Swank as Kate, a pianist who becomes stricken with Als.
Based on Michelle Wildgen's book, this drama follows Kate and her husband (Josh Duhamel) as they find the most unorthodox caretaker in young college student Bec (Emmy Rossum) as they both change each other's lives. Take a look at the first footage, along with two new photos from director George C. Wolfe's adaptation, co-starring Loretta Devine, Ali Larter, Jason Ritter and Marcia Gay Harden, arriving in theaters and VOD platforms October 10.
Hillary Swank and Emmy Rossum form an unusual bond in a new trailer for “You’re Not You,” a powerful film about a relationship between two women, one of whom is suffering from Als. Swank, an Academy Award winner, plays an accomplished pianist who is afflicted with Als, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. As Swank’s character struggles with the disease, her husband, played by Josh Duhamel, is forced to start looking for a caregiver. ...Read More »

A second teaser trailer is out for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher," the Steve Carell and Channing Tatum-led drama which looks to be one of the biggest players in the upcoming awards season following the film's sterling reception at Cannes back in May.
The first trailer is out for "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart's directorial debut "Rosewater". The story follows Iranian-born Canadian journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal), who was arrested for espionage while covering the Iranian elections in 2009 and held for nearly four months. The film, which opens in November, premiered the other day at the Venice Film Festival to respectable but not gushing reviews.
Next comes the trailer for the Hugh Grant-led rom-com "The Rewrite". Grant stars as a former Oscar-winning screenplay writer long past his glory days who takes on a college teaching job. Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons star.
Finally there's »

The trailer for director George C. Wolfe’s new film You’re Not You has some incredible timing on its side. Thanks to the viral phenomenon of those ubiquitous ice bucket challenge videos, I think it’s safe to say that awareness for Als is at an all-time high. The film stars Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who is stricken with the disease and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. Going off the trailer, the film looks well made if not a little conventional. It’s hard for me to fault these kinds of movies for that though, we all need to find the uplifting elements in any tragic scenario I suppose. Hit the jump for the You’re Not You trailer. The film also stars Josh Duhamel, Marcia Gay Harden, Jason Ritter, Ali Larter, and Loretta Devina and opens in theaters and On Demand on October 10th. »

Does Britney Spears actually know why ice water is being poured on her? I'm not convinced. But what does it matter? The so-called "ice bucket challenge" is for a good cause - over $15 million has been donated to the Als Association since the fundraising campaign began - and a bunch more celebrities have since joined the fray, from Ben Affleck to Britney Spears to LeBron James to Lady Gaga, who wins the "Most Artistic" superlative once again with her stoic Instagram clip. (Amy Schumer's is still the best though.) Check out the latest round of videos below, and go here to donate.

The drama, tentatively titled “Magdalena,” is based on nonfiction bestseller “Final Stop” by former CNN Espanol journalist Hugo Coya who recounts stories gleaned from five years of research on the 21 Peruvians who perished in Nazi camps. Truel saved hundreds of lives from Nazi persecution during World War II through her forgery skills.
Pic is budgeted at an initial $30 million and will likely shoot in France and Peru, where Truel spent the first 18 years of her life.
New York-based helmer-scribe Francis Delia will pen the screenplay. Production designer Thomas Voth, who worked on “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Wanted” among others, is on board to serve as art director of the pic slated to shoot by next year.
Rodriguez is in talks with potential helmers »

Stoner comedy Don Peyote tells the story Warren Allman, an unemployed graphic novelist who finally finds a purpose in life after an unpleasant encounter with a homeless man preaching the end is near. Fueled by vivid apocalyptic dreams, Warren becomes obsessed with 2012 doomsday theories and decides to make a documentary on the subject while his fiance is busy planning their wedding.
Seemingly a labour of love for co-writer, co-director and star Dan Fogler, Don Peyote plays out like a wannabe Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, only without any of the style and visual flare of Terry Gilliam. I can certainly see why Fogler would want to produce such a movie – after all the majority of his most famous roles see him playing »

CBS is selling its new midseason drama Battle Creek as being the next project from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. And while it's not completely untrue, it certainly may give the wrong impression.
Gilligan wrote the script for Battle Creek — which tells the story of Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) and his contentious relationship with FBI AgentMilton Chamberlin (Josh Duhamel) when the duo is forced to work together on a case — and pitched it to CBS 12 years ago. In fact, he admitted during a panel at the Television Critics' Association fall previews that it's been so long since he wrote it that he doesn't even remember how he settled on Battle Creek as the setting and title for the show.

Now, however, CBS has dusted off Gilligan's script ...

Josh Duhamel joins CBS later this year with the premiere of Vince Gilligan's new series (about an ill-fitting law enforcement team), "Battle Creek," and the actor admitted it was wife Fergie who got him into the executive producer's past work.
"I'm a bit of a geek about that show," Josh told AccessHollywood.com referring to Vince's last series, "Breaking Bad," as he took questions following the session for "Battle Creek" at the Television Critics Association Summer Tour in Beverly Hills on Thursday. "My wife, actually, is the one who introduced me to that show. She watched it from the very ...

It’s been 12 years since CBS bought Vince Gilligan’s script for an odd-couple cop drama. Now, with the help of “House” creator David Shore and others, “Battle Creek” will finally make its way to TV this winter as part of the Eye’s midseason lineup.
While this is a lesson on hope for all struggling screenwriters with scripts in turnaround, it’s also one on partnership. Both men — creators in their own right of immensely popular dramas with distinct tones of voice — are exec producing the Sony TV and CBS TV series along with Melissa Bernstein, Erin Gunn, Mark Johnson and pilot director Bryan Singer, but Gilligan is ceding day-to-day showrunning activities to Shore so he can concentrate on AMC’s “Better Call Saul.” At “Battle Creek’s” TCA press panel, the two talked about how that partnership has played out.

Breaking Bad is long over by now, but creator Vince Gilligan is hard at work during Summer TCA promoting his new shows, Better Call Saul and Battle Creek. During the panel for the latter, Gilligan admitted that he really didn't see the massive success of Breaking Bad coming. "Not even remotely did I see the success of Breaking Bad," he said. "Twelve years ago, I thought I'd be lucky not to be living in half of a double-wide with the plastic taped up. I did not see it coming. It was a wonderful lottery win on my part." Wonderful indeed! Though Gilligan will be spending most of his time on Better Call Saul, he did write the original script for Battle Creek and will be overseeing the cop comedy, starring Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters as new partners, as an executive producer. The show doesn't yet have a trailer or a premiere date, »

Vince Gilligan originally write the script for his upcoming CBS drama "Battle Creek" a dozen years ago. So when asked at press tour about the selection of the Michigan town as the setting, Gilligan admitted that he couldn't remember what he did last week, let alone a script he wrote that long ago. In this case, "Battle Creek" co-star Josh Duhamel stepped in to refresh Gilligan's memory, explaining that the "Breaking Bad" creator had been fascinated with the name of the city (which he has never visited) just from seeing it on Kellogg's cereal boxes since childhood. CBS had "Battle Creek" — which stars Dean Winters as a cynical Battle Creek cop and Duhamel as the perfect FBI agent who sets up a field office across the hall from the detective squad — in development a dozen years ago, didn't make it at the time because the right actors couldn't be found. »
