Many attribute the success of the contemporary superhero genre to Bryan Singer’s X-Men, which hit theaters in 2000 and helped usher in a new wave of comic book adaptations. However, the first successful Marvel Comics adaptation was Blade, which arrived in 1998 and starred Wesley Snipes as the titular vampire superhero.
The Blade franchise, while initially highly successful, came to a screeching halt with 2004’s Blade Trinity (and certainly wasn’t helped by the terrible 2006 series starring Sticky Fingaz), and since then the rights to the character have reverted back to Marvel Studios. We’ve heard rumors that the studio could be bringing the character to the darker, bloodier Netflix side of the McU, and expected that the role would be recast. According to Snipes himself, however, there’s a chance that he may don Blade’s fangs again after all.

With the recent successes of such TV series as "American Horror Story," "Hannibal" and Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," horror is hot on the small-screen right now -- so much so that in addition to MTV's forthcoming small-screen "Scream" spinoff, TV studios are in the midst of bringing a horde of cinematic fright-film properties to television, ranging from "Shutter Island" to "The Devil's Advocate" to "The Mist." In light of this, I've taken a look back at eight previous horror movie-to-tv translations and analyzed why they hit -- or didn't -- with audiences. "Bates Motel" (A&E) Based on: "Psycho" Aired: 2013-present Why it did (or didn't) work:a great pedigree ("Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse), a terrific cast (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore) and generally positive critical notices gave "Bates Motel" a sheen of respectability that worked well in this Golden Age of prestige television. The show has so far aired three successful seasons »

Longtime participants in the Television Critics Assn. press tour often get hit with a sense of deja vu while covering the twice-yearly marathon of TV gabbery.
NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt had that I’ve-been-here-before feeling as reporters were yakking about the strong debut of Fox’s “Empire.” The show reminded Greenblatt of the drama “Platinum” that he and former producing partner David Janollari shepherded for Upn back in 2003.
The show’s original title was “Empire,” but they couldn’t clear it. And “Empire” star Terrence Howard auditioned for one of the lead roles, Greenblatt recalled.
“Who know our show was so ahead of its time?” he joked.
Like “Empire,” “Platinum” revolved around the drama of the hip-hop music business and a family trying to hold their empire together, and the two shows also came from notable auspices: Lee Daniels and Danny Strong for “Empire,” John Ridley, Sofia Coppola and Francis Ford Coppola for “Platinum. »
