First Image Of Jamie Dornan And Cillian Murphy In Anthropoid

29 July 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After first hearing about it in March, we now have the initial look at Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy in director Sean Ellis’s World War II thriller Anthropoid. Ellis wrote the script with Anthony Frewin and is directing the real-life story about the attempted assassination of a prominent Nazi official. The title refers to the codename for the Allied operation to take down Reinhard Heydrich, the high-ranking SS officer who helped oversee the Holocaust. Seen as the number three Nazi – behind Hitler and Himmler – he was naturally a target for assassination. The men chosen for the task were Czechoslovakian army soldiers in exile (Dornan and Murphy), recruited and trained by British forces to parachute into their homeland and target the man known as The Butcher Of Prague. Already aboard alongside the leading pair are Charlotte Le Bon and Anna Geislerová, with the cast swelling before production began to include Toby Jones, »

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

24 July 2015 11:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.10, “Cycle”: The circle is now complete

24 July 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 10, “Cycle”

Written by The Duffer Brothers and Blake Crouch and Chad Hodge

Directed by Tim Hunter

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Ever since Wayward Pines was announced as an M. Night Shyamalan project, the threat of the twist ending is one that’s hung over the entire series. For better or worse, Shyamalan’s name is associated with stories that try to come out of left field in the apex of the third act and surprise you with the idea that nothing you’ve witnessed is what it seems, ends that enjoy their trickiness so much it keeps them blind to the fact that they don’t bear up under scrutiny. And given the early ads for the show, which were heavy on that symbolism—as well as too heavy on imagery and quotes that invited unflattering Twin Peaks comparisons—it was hard to »

Wayward Pines: Season Two Still Possible Say Exec Producers

24 July 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Fox clearly said that last night's episode of Wayward Pines was the series finale, there's still talk of bringing the show back for a second season.

On Wayward Pines, Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, in search of two missing federal agents. One was a former partner and they once had an affair. A truck slams into his car, he wakes up in the local hospital, and things start to get really strange. The cast of this thriller series also includes Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossamon, Charlie Tahan, Reed Diamond, Juliette Lewis, and Tim Griffin.

Regarding the possibility of a second season, showrunner Chad Hodge didn't have any news to share but didn't rule out a renewal either. He told THR, "There is no official season two yet, no »

‘Wayward Pines’ Finale Can’t See the Forest For the Trees (Spoilers)

23 July 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wayward Pines” started with one of those “The Twilight Zone”-like mysteries and rode that for several episodes, before belching out its big secret in one long bit of exposition halfway through its run. And frankly, whatever one might think of the novels on which the program was based, it never recovered, dramatically speaking, from that juncture, leading up to a season (and possibly series) finale that was chaotic, violent and unsatisfying. When an hour of television is most memorable for its fleeting “The X-Files” tease, something has been lost in translation.

Yes, there were some big deaths in the final hour (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), after the genetically aberrant monsters humankind has become in 4028 penetrated the town’s defenses, feasting on the populace. Yet one can argue that the dramatic tension oozed out of the show shortly after the midway point, once it became clear »

Rudd Ant Hero Has Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Domestic Debut to Date

20 July 2015 3:41 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

The town of Wayward Pines will be put to the ultimate test this Thursday at 9/8c, in the Fox drama’s grand finale.

RelatedWayward Pines Recap: Power Play

When last we tuned in, Dr. David Pilcher (played by Toby Jones) — a creator scorned — impetuously responded to Sheriff Ethan Burke’s truth-telling in the town square by shutting down all of the power — including that which electrifies the perimeter fence. Thus, the savage abbies just outside are ready, willing and now able to clamber into town and enjoy a feeding frenzy.

Wayward Pines Season 1 Episode 9 Review – ‘The Reckoning’

18 July 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the ninth episode of Wayward Pines

In the penultimate episode of this ‘event drama’ things take a disturbing turn. With feelings running high, expectations weighting heavy upon Matt Dillon’s Ethan Burke and the towns folk out for blood, it was bound to turn nasty.

As power starts slipping away from David Pilcher and his sister continues undermining him, Wayward Pines simmers over like a prison riot. With the true realisation of their situation beginning to dawn, vigilante behaviour seeps through the pores of these indoctrinated individuals. While ritual execution once used as a deterrent, is now considered the norm in a community rift with frustration.

As ever the key to Wayward Pines remains Matt Dillon. Closely followed by Melissa Leo in a role which has evolved week on week, while Jones has devolved into delusion. Shannyn Sossman and Charlie Tahan remain effective in their roles as »

'Ant-Man' post credit stingers might be Marvel's most important yet

17 July 2015 11:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By now, audiences have been conditioned to stay seated at a Marvel movie until the very last seconds, just in case, and in this weekend's "Ant-Man," there are not one but two different extra scenes. And, yes, we'll be discussing spoilers here, so if you read past this point, please don't cry about it later. The first of the scenes is tremendously meta, a moment where Marvel is essentially making a promise to audiences. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) takes his estranged daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) into his private workshop. Much of the tension between the two of them in the film has to do with her confusion about why Hank wants to bring someone else in to wear the Ant-Man suit. When Hank finally tells her the truth about how her mother Janet, aka The Wasp, died in action, it helps heal the hurt between them, but it's »

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.09, “A Reckoning”: Down the hatch

16 July 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 9, “A Reckoning”

Written by The Duffer Brothers

Directed by Nimród Antal

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

Ever since the true nature of Wayward Pines was revealed back in “The Truth,” the idea of sacrifice has hung over all day-to-day routines of the show. In order to save humanity, Pilcher, Pam, Megan, and every member of the support team had to give up their lives as they knew them. In doing so, they gave themselves the authority to force the sacrifices of countless other individuals, those they deemed necessary to ensure humanity’s future. Upon awakening, those individuals are forced into a conveyor belt of personal sacrifices, giving up their agency, their liberty, their right to know what’s going on. And should they chafe too heavily at those losses, the town literally sacrifices them to make a point.

Jamie Dornan talks war movie 'Anthropoid'

10 July 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Fifty Shades of Grey star joined by director Sean Ellis at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

Irish star Jamie Dornan has revealed how he was “blown away” by the script to Sean Ellis’ upcoming Second World War film Anthropoid and cooly brushed off any comparisons to his role in blockbuster erotic drama Fifty Shades of Grey.

As the film prepares to shoot in Czech Republic over the coming weeks, Ells and Dornan – alongside Czech actress Anna Geislerová and producers Pete Shilaimon and David Ondříček – attended the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (Kviff) (July 3-11) to discuss the film.

Dornan is joined by Cillian Murphy in the lead roles of Czech resistance fighters Jan Kubiš and Jozef Gabčík, in the story of Operation Anthropoid – the assassination of the Third Reich’s Reinhard Heydrich, which brought terrible reprisals on the Czech people but also gave new hope to the resistance against Nazi occupation.

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 8, “The Friendliest Place On Earth”

Written by Patrick Aison and Rob Fresco and Chad Hodge and Blake Crouch

Directed by Tim Hunter

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

One of the most interesting things about Wayward Pines—and one of the reasons why it’s been so successful as a summer potboiler show—is the way that it’s a series where the central conflict is constantly in motion. Every week the stakes seem to shift one way or the other, peoples’ allegiance to one side or the other blurring as their motivations become clearer. Ethan’s trying to get out of town, then he’s trying to keep his family safe, then he’s trying to keep the town safe. Kate goes from placid resident of the town to the most extreme member of its insurgent group. And Pam goes from zealous follower of »

Agent Carter Season 2 Will Introduce New Marvel Villains

6 July 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the course of Agent Carter‘s first season, several major plot threads were introduced that tied directly into the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the series’ villains, played by Bridget Regan, was part of the Soviet Black Widow program that eventually gives way to a certain red-haired Avenger. On top of that, the familiar face of Toby Jones’ Arnim Zola – who’s appeared in both Captain America films – showed up in a post-credits stinger, hinting that we may see the origins of the Winter Soldier or discover how the Red Skull lackey helped Hydra infiltrate and take over S.H.I.E.L.D.

While the 1940s-set series has plenty of time to play around with and expand upon these stories, Agent Carter will reportedly focus on new threats when it returns for its second season. According to the showrunners, the goal is to not simply »
