'Bates Motel' poll: Which episode should Vera Farmiga submit to Emmy judges?

14 May 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Legions of TV shrewdies checked in to "Bates Motel" this past TV season for two reasons: 1.) When Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) Finally went psycho, this program suddenly got a racing pulse and – stand back, y'all – blood splattered everywhere. It was thrilling to watch. 2.) Vera Farmiga gave the best performance on TV this year. She deserves a dozen Emmys for her multi-faceted turns as Norman's wigged-out, broken-hearted and ferociously protective mother. -Break- Sure, Farmiga was not nominated for Best Drama Actress last year after making the list in 2013, but don't pooh-pooh her current chances. All of the following stars returned to Emmy competition after getting snubbed in recent years: Melissa McCarthy, James Gandolfini, Eric McCormack, Allison Janney and Ray Romano, to name just a few. In 2013, Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") got snubbed, but rallied to win last year. If nominated, I don&#39...' »

Damien: The Hounds Of Hell Have A Message In Teaser For A&E Series

13 May 2015 1:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the success of its Psycho-inspired Bates Motel, A&E is venturing further into horror territory for its Omen-inspired original series Damien. Picking up with the future Antichrist as an adult (played by Bradley James), the series looks set to deliver deeply unsettling visuals and sinister voice-overs, if this teaser is any indication.

Of course, it’s really impossible to figure out what the tone of the series is from this brief snippet, but the message is eerie all the same. “I imagine you don’t remember much,” a disembodied female voice coos. “That will change. It’s so good to see you again, Damien.”

The Rottweilers delivering that message seems like a tough sell unless the visual effects in the finished product are a little better than seen in the teaser, but this is more of an announcement than anything else. The 10-episode series, exec-produced and written by former Walking Dead shot-caller Glen Mazzara, »

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared

12 May 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »

'Bates Motel's' Carlton Cuse Breaks Down Shocking Season-Finale Death

7 May 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season-three finale of A&E's Bates Motel.] The third season of Bates Motel wrapped Monday with one of the A&E drama's biggest shockers to date. As Norman (Freddie Highmore) and Bradley (Nicola Peltz) raced away from White Pine Bay, Norman fought to keep the fictional version of Norma (Vera Farmiga) living inside his head quelled. Unfortunately for Bradley, Norman lost out to his own mind, and fully embraced becoming Norma in order to execute one of the bloodiest deaths we’ve seen on the series to date. THR caught up with Bates Motel co-

Nominees for the Critics Choice Television Awards include “24: Live Another Day” and many more

7 May 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV and this awards season (it’s mostly film or bust for me in that regard), but I watch a handful of shows and follow along with the race. Not enough to accurately do predictions, mind you, but I did think this nomination announcement was worthy of a mention. As such, today we have the list of Critics Choice nominees, which I’ll be revealing to you shortly. Among the titles that fared best this year with the nominations, we have Justified lead the way with five nominations. Following that, we have The Americans, The Good Wife, and Transparent with four apiece. »

[TV Review] “Bates Motel” Episode 3.08: ‘The Pit’

29 April 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

While this week’s episode of Bates Motel had it’s moments (mostly in the last ten minutes), it was a bit of a letdown after last week’s stellar episode. Not to sound like a broken record, but the best parts came from scenes involving Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, while all of the other scenes kind of dragged […] »

Bates Motel season 3 episode 8 review: The Pit

28 April 2015 3:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Freddie Highmore delivers a series-best performance in this week's otherwise frustrating episode of Bates Motel...

This review contains spoilers.

3.8 The Pit

Sometimes I wonder if Bates Motel cheats when it references Psycho. On the one hand it is a quasi-prequel and it’s certainly allowed to hint at things to come, but I feel like I love the show more when it’s in direct conversation with its source material, and that is something of a problem. Obviously the relationship to the original informs the tragedy of the show, as it tells us what this is all building toward, but I look at how successfully Hannibal has differentiated itself from more famous predecessors and I can’t help but wonder if Bates Motel should be doing the same. Granted they’re different shows, but it’s a little bit troubling that moments like Norma saying ‘we all go a little »

22 April 2015 7:50 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spider-Man is being taken back to his graphic roots with a new animated movie due out in 2018.

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman broke the news at CinemaCon on Wednesday (April 22) and revealed Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Chris Miller as its director.

The pair - who boast such films as 22 Jump Street and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs under their belts - will also write and produce the project.

TV Performer of the Week: Vera Farmiga, Bates Motel

17 April 2015 12:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

TV Performer of the Week is our new recurring series that focuses on one particular example of great acting in an episode from the previous week. New picks will post on Fridays. Fans of A&E's Psycho prequel series Bates Motel know that what has always made the show (now in its third season) a standout is Vera Farmiga. Her portrayal of Norma Bates is both dynamic and hypnotic, as she swings from moments of controlled determination to childlike helplessness. [caption id="attachment_423479" align="alignright" width="239"] Image via A&E[/caption] "Norma Louise" was a rare episode where Norma and Norman (Freddie Highmore) were separated, as Norma took off to Portland to gather her wits after both Dylan (Max Theiriot) and Norman encouraged her to speak to her estranged brother Caleb (Kenny Johnson). Feeling betrayed by Norman taking Dylan's side, Norma (given this and other pressures in her life) grabs up her things and leaves, with Norman screaming after her. »

Spider-Man is not in Avengers: Age of Ultron, says Kevin Feige

14 April 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has denied that Spider-Man will have a cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Speculation has run rampant about the next appearance of the web-slinger since Marvel reached a deal with Sony to integrate the character into its films.

Captain America: Civil War was previously tipped as the most likely entrance point for Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although recently rumours have arisen about a possible Avengers: Age of Ultron cameo.

When Feige was asked directly if there would be a specially-filmed cameo for Spider-Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he simply told Collider: "No."

The producer nodded his head to seemingly deny the suggestion when it was asked a second time by the interviewer, but commented no further.

Feige has previously confirmed that the new Spider-Man will be high school age, but stressed that there will not be a third retelling of his origin story on the big screen. »
