Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Back in Hollywood With ‘Terminator Genisys’ Premiere

29 June 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back for the fifth time.

Schwarzenegger was joined by stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Byung-hun Lee and Dayo Okeniyi at the premiere of Paramount’s “Terminator Genisys” Sunday at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Director Alan Taylor (“Thor: The Dark World”) said fans of the “Terminator” franchise will relive the original films through homages to James Cameron’s first two movies, while also watching the robot world take on a life of its own.

“We started off quite consciously in the script replicating scenes from the original to say, ‘You’ve seen this before, you think you know where this is going,’ and then we wrench off in a new direction,” Taylor said.

“Genisys” jumps into the robot universe when John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the resistance movement against the Terminators, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke »

What the 'Transformers' writers room means about the new shape of Hollywood

20 May 2015 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So that's what the Transformers writer's room is going to look like, eh? While I don't tally the worth of a writer based on how many news stories they break, I will admit that I was deeply irritated when the story was first written about the notion of Akiva Goldsman spearheading a team of writers to develop "Transformers" sequels. I'd been tipped about it a few weeks earlier, and I was trying to get a second source I trusted, either at the studio or on the agency side of things. I pushed, and while I was sure the story was right, I couldn't run it. Excruciating. Part of my hesitance was that I didn't want to be wrong on a story like that because it's a threat more than anything. Goldsman and Bay breaking story together? Holy cow. Now Deadline's got a list of names they say are the final hires, »

Studios are buying pitches and spec scripts in what literary reps call one of the busiest bursts of development activity in recent memory: "There's been a much more receptive market in the past four months than in the previous four years," says Kaplan/Perrone's Sean Perrone. Insiders say recent studio executive shuffles are a major reason for the action. With Tom Rothman at Sony, Marc Evans at Paramount and Stacey

Safe House episode 3 review

4 May 2015 2:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Underneath Safe House's over-reliance on flashback and cheap tricks lies a beautifully directed, strongly performed drama...

This review contains spoilers.

We’ve reached the halfway point in this new ITV drama starring former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston, and the dramatic moments of the previous instalment hang heavy throughout Safe House episode three.

During part two’s denouement, we were introduced to new character Gemma Underwood. And then we were quickly unintroduced to her as she was murdered by the villain of the piece, Michael Collersdale (played very devilishly by Peter Ferdinando). Her link to the ongoing events with the Blackwood family (who have been stashed away in the lake district in the titular safe house along with Eccleston’s Robert after an attack by Collersdale) is revealed - she’s the sister of mother Ali (Holby City’s Nicola Stephenson).

As we discover over the course of the proceedings, »

Safe House episode 1 review

20 April 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Misdirection is a hand played throughout Safe House, which is elevated by a fascinating cast and strong direction...

This review contains spoilers.

From ITV comes yet another Monday night drama to add to their roster of impressive output in recent times.

Safe House, from writer Michael Crompton (who recently penned ITV’s excellent Code of A Killer), sees Christopher Eccleston play ex-policeman Robert who has left the force behind him with his wife Katy, played by Marsha Thomason, for a quiet life in the beauty and tranquility, not to mention solitude, of the Lake District.

We quickly discover Robert left the police due to the the execution of a witness he was protecting, an event which continues to haunt him. He’s visited by his former colleague and friend Dci Mark Maxwell, Paterson Joseph, with a proposition for the couple.

Keen to “rehabilitate” his friend Robert, Mark suggests that the »
