Netflix has announced a February 14th premiere date for the second season of its acclaimed original drama "House of Cards". Like the first season, the Kevin Spacey-led political drama will drop on the service all at once. The Svod service has dropped both a silent teaser trailer and a fresh synopsis for the new season which you can see below:
In the second season, Francis (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes.
President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence.

Andy Kaufman alive? Or Andy Kaufman hoax? New York City-born comedian Andy Kaufman, little known outside the United States but well-remembered in the U.S. by those who watched the late ’70s / early ’80s television series Taxi, is alive, married, and has a (previously unknown) grown daughter who goes by the name of McCoy. Well, if — and that’s a big if (or perhaps a small one, considering people’s willful gullibility and/or downright stupidity) — you believe the story reported in numerous outlets in the last couple of days: Andy Kaufman may have faked his own death of lung cancer at age 35 in 1984 so he could escape the limelight. (Photo: Andy Kaufman) At the New York-based Andy Kaufman Awards last Monday night, November 11, 2013, a woman claiming to be Kaufman’s daughter — calling herself "McCoy" (reportedly the name Kaufman used when checking himself into hospitals) — appeared on stage with Michael Kaufman, »

Back in July, Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis revealed that he is no longer attached to write the sequel, Chronicle 2, and that director Josh Trank was no longer involved as well. Today, the writer revealed that his script would have shown fans what the source of Matt, (Alex Russell), Andrew (Dane DeHaan) and Steve's (Michael B. Jordan) superpowers really was. Here's how he described the superpower source, known as Massive Organic Geoelectric Objects (Mogo), in a recent interview.
"(They are) a race of crystalline organisms that communicate and propel themselves through radio waves, and turn higher life forms into telekinetic drones."
He also briefly described the plot of his very dark sequel script that was rejected by 20th Century Fox.
"Two embittered souls as antiheroes trying to catch the survivor of the first film."

Question: Any news on what comes next for Once Upon a Time‘s Neal, now that he is in Neverland? –Stephanie
Ausiello: Though it appears that Hook will soon share with the others the news of Neal’s presence on the island, SwanThief fans might be wise to worry about the pirate losing his latest (figurative!) grab of booty.

Hasbro has teamed up with comic publisher Idw for a brand new on-going comic series that will bring Transformers and G.I. Joe together in one storyline. It is not the first time the two franchises have crossed over – they have appeared together in comics, the two franchises have teamed up over half a dozen times since the first G.I. Joe and the Transformers comic in 1986.
This new comic will explore an encounter between these starkly different teams as G.I. Joe troops are pitted against the ominous threats of Cybertron. The series, which will be co-written – with Transformers veteran John Barber - and drawn by Tom Scioli (Godland, American Barbarian), will debut in summer 2014. Check out Scioli’s retro cover artwork below…
“We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity for this event, and the anniversary of both Transformers and G.I. Joe in 2014 is definitely the perfect time, »

"Assume everyone with a hat on is a threat" – Harry Mitchell
When I first bought a Kindle, I couldn't figure out how to turn off the underlined feature showing the passages previous readers found so inspiring and memorable that they digitally underlined them. This was incredibly frustrating because the sort of people who underline sentences in books tend to choose the frilliest, most faux-profound, dreamcatchery, Hallmark, Yankee Candle tracts of craw-clogging bumper sticker insipidness.
The Adjustment Bureau is a film exclusively made of underlined Kindle passages.

Prose author Frank Bill makes his comic book debut with the help of artist Drew Moss (The Colonized) and Crow creator James O’Barr who illustrated the covers for The Crow: Pestilence which takes place in the lethal setting of Juarez, Mexico.
“I’ve never seen lead characters take more brutally inventive abuse than the kind Frank Bill heaped on his characters in Crimes and Donnybrook,” stated Chris Ryall, Idw’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “I’m excited to see Frank bring such a strong voice and visceral storytelling ability to comics, especially on something as well-suited to his skills as The Crow. It was great to find out that James O’Barr was equally intrigued by Frank’s work, comparing him to Jim Thompson and other literary greats.”
The Crow: Pestilence lands in stores for March 2014.

Dedicated television viewers know that there will always be shows that everyone wants you to watch, either it’s a cult show, a show that ended way before it’s time, or seems to grab everyone’s attention but yours. However many viewers find themselves stumbling upon these shows either years later or late into a shows run. I’ve compiled a list of ten shows, published once a week, that have become classics or are on their way to doing so and have recently been discovered by this writer.

In April, Chronicle writer/creator Max Landis shot down rumors that 20th Century Fox was unhappy with his script ideas for the sequel Chronicle 2, which was originally on the fast track after Chronicle proved to be a success at the box office. Apparently, the studio wanted something that was identical to the first movie, while Landis wanted to take the material in a new, different direction.
"Chronicle 2 is in an interesting place right now. It's moving along. There was this whole announcement that they wanted to just do the same thing again because my father said that. My father is not involved in Chronicle 2. He doesn't know the process. It was not his place to say that. The »
Chicago – The 2013 Emmy nominations were announced this morning, leading to the natural hand-wringing and chest-beating over who missed the cut. Before we get to the most egregious snubs of the year, a few places where the Academy unexpectedly, happily got it right:
2. One Down — I’m not sure Eric Stonestreet was the most deserving to be the first excluded from the supporting comedy categories but at least “Modern Family” takes up less than 50% of these categories and so it’s progress.
3. Fave Nominees — Jason Bateman, Louis C.K., Laura Dern, Lena Dunham, Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Adam Driver, Bill Hader, Tony Hale, Bobby Cannavale (twice), Melissa Leo, Molly Shannon, Jeff Daniels, Bryan Cranston, Vera Farmiga, Elisabeth Moss, Aaron Paul, »
