A&E's Bates Motel is inching closer toward resembling Alfred Hitchcock's 1960's classic Psycho, the film that serves as inspiration for this modern-day prequel of sorts that examines the motel in its early days when Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) was still in high school and his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga), was still breathing.
The first Bates Motel Season 3 trailer begins with a first look at newcomer Tracy Spiridakos removing her clothing within one of the motel rooms. As the camera pulls back the camera's point of view is revealed to come through a peep hole, and none other than an overly curious and oftentimes creepy Norman is on the other side of it.
Pyscho featured an eerily similar scene with Anthony Perkins as Norman peeking through a similar hole at Marion Crane (Janet Leigh). We all know how that fascination with attractive women taking showers ended, though I would »
Norman Bates continues his evolution into a crazed killer in the upcoming third series of Bates Motel. This is another one of my favorite shows on TV, and I’m looking forward to its return. The cast of this series, led by the stunning Vera Farmiga and the crazy-creepy Freddie Highmore, is incredible. I’ve really enjoyed the origin story that it’s telling. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should catch up before Season 3 hits.
We have a teaser trailer for you to check out today called “Peep Hole,” and it features little Norman spying on one of his beautiful guests through a little peep hole in the wall. His dark fetish fantasies had to start somewhere.
The third season of this series returns in March of 2015!

Although we won’t get to check back into A&E’s Bates Motel until the Season 3 premiere debuts in March, a new promo video has been released that teases the upcoming season and pays tribute to the creepy peeping scene from Psycho, with Freddie Highmore in place of Anthony Perkins and Tracy Spiridakos (Revolution) standing in for Janet Leigh.
The 10-episode third season of Bates Motel will debut on A&E in March of 2015. Returning cast members include Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates, Vera Farmiga as Norman’s mother, Norma Louise Bates, and Max Thieriot as Norman’s half-brother, Dylan Massett.
Tracy Spiridakos, who starred as Charlie Matheson in the now-defunct Revolution series on NBC, joins Bates Motel in the recurring role of Annika Johnson, an intriguing newcomer to the small town of White Pine Bay.

With rumours arriving that The Walking Dead spin-off may be a prequel, hot on the heels of the news that Syfy is pursuing a series about Superman's grandfather, titled Krypton, there are officially no more jokes. Anything you might say about making a comic book series set some ridiculous amount of time before the real story starts happening, can and will be seriously considered as a pitch by some network, somewhere.
A Newsroom-style series about The Daily Planet before Clark Kent started working there? A psychological procedural featuring Dr. Harleen Quinzel but no Joker? A jungle-set adventure series about Gorilla Grodd's granddad? We could keep going until the phone rings and someone makes us an offer for a pilot, but that would be an unnecessary amount of pre-amble before getting to the point, »

The Santa Barbara Film Festival's Cinema Vanguard Award was created in recognition of actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film.

The 2015 Golden Globe nominations were, as per usual, a mixed bag. For every inspired nod (congrats, Gina Rodriguez!) there was one that had be scratching the skin off my scalp (Downton Abbey over Homeland). So without further adieu, I give you the good, the bad and the downright ugly from this year’s list.

The Mark Gordon Company and Vendome Pictures are teaming up once again for Source Code 2, a follow-up to director Duncan Jones' 2011 sci-fi thriller Source Code. It isn't clear if Duncan Jones or star Jake Gyllenhaal will be involved, but, at this point, the project doesn't have a distributor or any cast members attached. Anna Foerster has signed on to direct, from a script by original Source Code writer Ben Ripley.

Chalk this one up under “sequels we’re not sure we saw coming”. Someone has decided to make a follow-up to Source Code, even though the story wrapped up quite neatly in Duncan Jones’s 2011 film. He’s not back for the new one (he’s a little busy polishing his giant Warcraft tentpole), so Anna Foerster is stepping in to take the reins.Nothing has been revealed about the new movie's plot. Presumably, it will spin a new tale following the project that saw Jake Gyllenhaal’s character experiencing the last eight minutes of someone else’s life during a terrorist attack on a train to try to stop the bombing.The original film’s writer, Ben Ripley, will once again be on script duty for this one, but no casting has been announced, so we don’t know if any of the original actors around Gyllenhaal – Vera Farmiga, »
Remember the 2011 time travel thriller Source Code? You know, the one with Jake Gyllenhaal and Vera Farmiga set aboard a Chicago train that keeps exploding, forcing Gyllenhaal to relive the event over and over until he can stop it? Yeah, the Duncan Jones directed movie was not quite as phenomenal as Moon but it was still an adequate little movie. Not one that ever seemed to warrant a sequel, yet here we are. Variety reports that Source Code screenwriter Ben Ripley is penning a sequel that »
