House of Cards: 5 Things We Want in Season 4

15 hours ago | | See recent news »

Hardcore House of Cards fans who spent the weekend bingeing on all 13 episodes are already hungry for the next chapter in Netflix's drama. Season 3 saw Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) as president, but the Oval Office seemed to sap the power he had wielded so ruthlessly for two seasons. Both parties hated him. Congress sought to block the crown jewel of his tenure, America Works, a program that broke the first rule of politics: leave Social Security alone. Claire (Robin Wright), clawed her way into an ambassadorship only to fumble her plan for peace in the Middle East. Russian president Victor Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen, »

House of Cards Season 3 Episode 3 Review – ‘Chapter 29′

16 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the third episode of House of Cards Season 3 …

I’ll admit it: I was a little worried. The first two episode of House of Cards season 3 were fine, but something had been missing. That extra sparkle that made the first two seasons such a revelation had been absent. Maybe it was a conscious decision by the writers, or maybe it was just an ill-judged over-reliance on Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly). Either way, episode 3 returns to sparkling form.

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

Episode 3 revolves around the narrative of a diplomatic visit from the Russian President, Viktor Petrov (Lars Mikkelsen). Proving that the show can be ever-relevant, the writers have their fictional Presidents meet under some pretty non-fictional circumstances. Petrov’s arrival at the White House is amidst the sounds of a mass protest, condemning Russia’s anti-gay laws. Sound familiar?

They even incorporate the events surrounding punk group Pussy Riot, »

‘House of Cards’ Star on Lying to Keep The Season’s Secrets (Spoilers)

2 March 2015 4:53 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do Not read unless you’ve finished season three of “House of Cards.”

Season two of Netflix’s “House of Cards” ended with Doug Stamper left for dead after being hit in the head repeatedly with a rock. Now, Michael Kelly, who plays President Frank Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey) longtime right-hand man, is relieved he can finally admit he survived the brutal attack. “After a year of lying, I can finally get to tell the truth,” he tells Variety.

That said, he’s been so busy working he still hasn’t had a chance to watch this season yet. “I can’t wait to see it!”

Did you always know you were going to survive?

When we shot it, it was written as, “Stamper is lying there, but he is breathing.” It was written as that, we filmed it as that. And then I was in the way »

“House of Cards”: The Best Show on Netflix?

2 March 2015 3:59 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Over the weekend, Netflix dropped season three of their hit show House of Cards, allowing viewers (including yours truly) to binge watch another 13 episodes of the political drama. Since its debut, the show, which came from the mind of scribe Beau Willimon and stars the duo of Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, has been a huge hit, basically creating the term “binge watching” and capturing more than its fair share of attention. House of Cards is responsible for really launching Netflix in the realm of original scripted programming. For my money, it’s also their best show, bar none. Even in general, there’s very little else like it on the small screen right now. For those of you unaware what the show is about, House of Cards follows democratic congressman Frank Underwood (Spacey) as he exacts revenge, along with the help of his equally strong willed wife Claire (Wright »

House of Cards Season 3 Episode 1 Review – ‘Chapter 27′

28 February 2015 4:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the Season 3 premiere of House of Cards

For better or for worse, the Underwoods are back! Yes, nearly a full year since the release of the last season, new episodes of House of Cards have finally found their way back on to Netflix. Whatever this season has in store for us, one thing is for sure: things at in the White House will never run smoothly.


Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

We return to Frank Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey) story pretty much in the same place that we left it at the end of season 2: the Oval Office. After all the manipulation and underhanded deeds we’ve seen him commit in the past, Frank’s finally got the presidential power he’s always craved.

But what sort of president will he be?

Somehow, I don’t think the answer is ‘compassionate’.

‘House of Cards’ Creator on Keeping Season 3’s Secrets (Spoilers)

27 February 2015 3:49 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do Not read unless you’ve watched season three of “House of Cards.”

Netflix released season three of “House of Cards” Friday morning, and executive producer Beau Willimon talked to Variety about keeping secrets  — as well as the rocky course of the Underwood presidency and marriage.

With the release came the big reveal that Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), who had been left for dead at the end of last season, was in fact alive.

So, Doug Stamper is alive. Was that always your intention?

We always knew we were going to keep Stamper in the fold. We did want it to be a question at the end of season two whether or not he was going to come back, but we didn’t know exactly how. One of the things that we tried which we’d never done on “House of Cards” was entering the story through someone »

'House of Cards' Creator on Season 3 Obstacles, Netflix Leak and Killing Characters

26 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) has the power he's always wanted. So what's next? That's the key question of House of Cards season three, says creator Beau Willimon, whose Netflix drama picks up Friday with Frank assuming the presidency without a single vote being cast for him. Frank inherits a White House rocked by scandal after he orchestrates President Walker's (Michel Gill) exit from the Oval Office. To further complicate things, Rachel, the former call girl who can connect Frank to Russu's (Cory Stoll) death, is missing in action after attacking Frank's right-hand man Doug (Michael Kelly) and leaving him for

After the film’s premiere, the cast of the play and film joined Charlie Rose onstage for an exclusive Q&A about the making of the film as well as the challenges they faced as part of the play.

Richard III stared Kevin Spacey as the namesake as well as multiple actors who were in attendance at the film’s premiere.

A cut by cut breakdown of the ‘House of Cards: Season 3′ trailer

1 February 2015 11:09 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Wow. I mean, just wow. We’ve already been as hooked on House of Cards as a test lab mouse is on Pepsi sugar. As if they just can’t toy with us enough, they show the final season of the award winning show right after Kevin Spacey’s Golden Globe win for the character we’ve come to love… and fear.

In an ill twist of fate, audiences would have to wait two whole weeks (Ok that’s a lie, it’s thirteen days, but no one noticed right?) for the season to be released; February 27th compared to last year’s ironic release on Valentine’s Day. As we have just learned how to cope with the denial of this being the series’ final season, we have enough from the commercial to sustain us these long four weeks.

Well that’s a flat out lie. We know nothing. »

Top 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015

14 January 2015 10:53 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »
