San Diego - Oscar-winner Melissa Leo is such a convincing actress that for a brief moment on the "Wayward Pines" press line at San Diego Comic-Con, she had me doubting whether I even knew where I really was. "I think the show is full of, like a lot of [M.] Night ]Shyamalan]'s work, you think who know you're talking to, but do you know who you're talking to?" said Leo ominously. "Do you even really know where you are?" Cue existential crisis. Thankfully, I recovered just enough to continue posing questions to Leo and her co-star Toby Jones about the upcoming Fox "event series," including whether shooting the filmmaker-driven show - which in addition to executive-producer Shyamalan features episodes helmed by such big-screen directors as Nimrod Antal ("Predators," "Metallica Through the Never") and Zal Batmanglij ("The East") - feels at times more like shooting a movie than a TV seris "In some ways yes, »

We're nearing the end of The Hobbit trilogy as The Battle of the Five Armies is slated to arrive in December 2014. The film will culminate director Peter Jackson's 13-year-long, six-film voyage into J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth, and judging by the billions of dollars both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit have generated worldwide at the box office, there is no end to the thirst among moviegoers for all things Tolkien. With that in mind, to help fill that Gollum void, two different movie studios are planning competing J.R.R. Tolkien biopics. »

This new trailer for "Wayward Pines," heading to Fox in 2015, has a suitably spooky, "Twin Peaks"-ish vibe, and it's certainly chock-full of the type of stars we used to only see in the movies. It's a good time for horror on TV for sure! Check it out, and let us know what you think.

It may have just lost first place to Godzilla when it comes to the biggest domestic opening of 2014, but Marvel Studios has plenty to celebrate this weekend with Captain America: The Winter Soldier crossing the $700 million mark at the global box office.
The Phase Two sequel is only the third Marvel Studios release to do so after The Avengers and Iron Man 3, and currently sits on a hefty $703,427,000, making it the highest-earner of the year so far. However, rival superhero sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is hot on its tail, having amassed $633 million itself, and if it can rack up a few more ticket sales before the arrival of X-Men: Days of Future Past this week then you’d have to imagine Cap will find himself second to the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man before too long.
