Hasbro's M.A.S.K. Gets a New Comic Book Series This Fall

3 May 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the coming years, we're going to get a Hasbro Cinematic Universe led by G.I. Joe, which has already previously gotten two standalone movies. At this time, it does not sound like Transformers will crossover into this realm, but that's always possible. Instead, Joe and his crew will be teaming up with other such Hasbro properties as Rom: Space Knight, The Micronauts, and M.A.S.K. All properties that younger audiences probably aren't too familiar with yet. To help quell this, and establish a foothold amongst young ticket buyers, Idw is first introducing some of these characters in the pages of all-new comic book series. Rom and Micronauts comics have previously been announced. Now comes word that M.A.S.K. will bring back all its action and excitement in a new release coming this fall.

Here's the official PR: Joining other recent Hasbro additions to the Idw Publishing slate, »

White House Correspondents' Dinner: Journalist, Star Scuffles Bring Aggressive Edge to Nerd Prom Festivities

1 May 2016 9:59 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Maybe it’s Trump. The normally chummy journalist-politician-celebrity hobnobbing that characterizes the swirl of parties before and after the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner was marred by violence on few occasions over the weekend. Sure, Donald Trump’s son Eric exchanged cordial greetings Saturday with top Clinton campaign officials. But the Republican presidential frontrunner, who has offered to pay legal fees of supporters who attack protestors and brags about how hard he “hits back” at critics, seemed to send a truculent vibe down the Acela line from New York, where he stayed while Washington partied. In one incident, actor Michael Kelly, who

2016 Tribeca Film Festival: ‘Elvis & Nixon’ Interviews

28 April 2016 2:15 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Until February 1971, President Richard Nixon had meetings in the Oval Office unrecorded, unable to be called upon by him and his staff as well as those that came after him. One of those such meetings included the December 21, 1970 meeting he had with the king, Elvis Presley.

In a bizarre twist of actual historic events, Elvis Presley wanted a meeting with Richard Nixon in the hopes of becoming a “Federal Agent at Large” and carrying an official Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs badge. His wife Priscilla wrote that “the narc badge represented some kind of ultimate power to him . . . With the federal narcotics badge, he could legally enter any country both wearing guns and carrying any drugs he wished.” Well don’t we wish the same!

Liza Johnson directs this comedy, which stars Kevin Spacey as Richard Nixon and Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley. Also in the film include Colin Hanks »

Donald Trump Will Leave This Year's White House Correspondents' Dinner to Kendall Jenner Despite Invites 'By Every Single Group of Media Available to Mankind'

Donald Trump won't be attending D.C.'s "Nerd Prom" on April 30 - but it's not because he wasn't invited. "I was asked by every single group of media available to mankind [to attend this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner]," the Gop front-runner tells The Hill. "But I've decided not to go. Do you know why? I would have a good time and the press would say I look like I wasn't having a good time."

“House of Cards” is back with a real bang for Netflix

9 March 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

At the tail end of last week, Netflix gave audiences another reason to binge with the release of the fourth season of their hit series House of Cards. As the show (or at least one of the shows) that put the streaming service on the map as a place for original programming, this has always been a flagship property, with anticipation for new seasons always at a fever pitch and a pedigree including David Fincher and Beau Willimon. Suffice to say, House of Cards is special. This year is no exception for the show, as season three ended on a real cliffhanger and plenty of us were dying to see what happens next. I’ll steer clear of new spoilers, of course, but just so you know, everything previously involving Kevin Spacey’s now President Frank Underwood and Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood is fair game. Let’s dive in! »

'House of Cards' has strong guest acting Emmy contenders in Ellen Burstyn, Cicely Tyson ...

9 March 2016 3:30 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

For its first three seasons “House of Cards” has been a strong Emmy contender racking up bids each year for Best Drama Series as well as for leads Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. And supporting actor Michael Kelly contended last year. All three are strong favorites again this year. And they could be joined by a whopping four guest stars, including Reg E. Cathey who won Best Drama Guest Actor last year for his scene-stealing performance as Freddy Hayes, a one-time restaurant owner down on his luck.  Also in contention are two Emmy favorites: Ellen Burstyn, who won Best Drama Guest Actress in 2009 for "Law & Order: Svu" and Cicely Tyson, who contended in this category last year for "How to Get Away with Murder."  And watch out for Sebastian Accelus, who played investigative journalist Lucas Goodwin in the first two seasons of this Netflix series, and returns to the role on a recurring basis. »

'House of Cards' Star Talks Beau Willimon's "Painful" Exit, "Lady Stamper" and Donald Trump

5 March 2016 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from House of Cards' fourth season.] House of Cards is back, and so is Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly).  In the fourth season of the Netflix political drama, Frank Underwood's longtime right-hand man had a lot on his plate. In addition to Frank's presidential duties back in D.C., the new season opened in the midst of a demanding campaign and in the midst of major marital turmoil for Frank (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright). Even complicating things further? The addition of Claire's "Lady Stamper," played by new series regular Neve Campbell.

House of Cards Season 4's Neve Campbell Is Not Afraid of Frank Underwood

3 March 2016 7:46 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

House of Cards season four is right around the corner, but if you can't wait until 12:01 a.m. Pt, here's a little taste for you. In the sneak peek below, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) come face-to-face with Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) and Leann Harvey (new cast addition Neve Campbell). Just because he's the president of the United States doesn't mean Leann is going to bow down to intimidation. "It seems you didn't hear me after all," Frank says to her. "I don't respond to threats," she replies. "You're speaking to the president," Stamper is quick to point out. "Yes, I recognized his voice," »

House Of Cards Season 4 Review

3 March 2016 6:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

A lot can change in three years. Back in 2013, when House of Cards launched, the very idea of a show streaming on Netflix, with all episodes erupting from the floodgates at once, seemed singularly odd. It’s hard to even get into that headspace in 2016. The service, for better or worse, has given its users a Pavlovian response to the consumption of its top-shelf programming: binge it soon, binge it fast, and get in on the conversation before it ends.

House of Cards is maybe the first actually great Netflix original series (sorry, Lilyhammer), the first to prove that a show didn’t have to be chintzy or overly soapy to get people to keep talking about it well past its debut. But, like Netflix’s effect on our TV culture, a lot has changed for House of Cards over three years, too. »

TV Review: ‘House of Cards,’ Season 4

29 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Real-life presidential politics have caught up with “House of Cards,” giving the drama that helped put Netflix on the programming map a run for its money in sheer outlandishness. The series, however, looks determined to prove it can still one-up the legitimate article, an approach that has made the show consistently juicy and entertaining, but also produced questionable, over-the-top flourishes, including a few whoppers in the first half of the program’s fourth campaign. While already renewed for a fifth season, the show’s highest approval numbers are probably at this point behind it.

Granted, the fourth-season release date could hardly seem more timely than to come in the thick of the election chase, with the fictional President Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) in the throes of a primary challenge as he seeks another term. Never mind that he schemed, plotted and literally committed murder to put himself in the White »

Watch: Tom Hardy Stars in New Miniseries ‘Taboo’

26 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Tom Hardy turns to television in the first trailer for his new FX miniseries “Taboo.” The Oscar nominee stars as adventurer James Keziah Delaney, who returns to 19th century London after 10 years in Africa to inherit the remains of his father’s shipping empire. Delaney combats the East India Company in business, while simultaneously trying to ensure his own mortal survival against his London enemies. “I am a very dangerous man to know,” Hardy says cryptically in the trailer. Hardy not only stars in “Taboo,” but the actor is also a credited producer and writer on the project. This miniseries comes on the heels of a successful 2015 for Hardy after garnering acclaim for his performances in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Legend,” and “The Revenant,” for which the actor earned his first Oscar nomination.   Oscar nominee Ridley Scott (“The Martian”) is also a producer on the series. “Game of Thrones” actors Oona Chaplin and Jonathan Price, »

Tom Hardy Reteams With Locke Director In First Trailer For New Period Drama Taboo

25 February 2016 11:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arguably one of the more overlooked gems on Tom Hardy’s résumé is Locke, Steven Knight’s minimalist thriller that had The Revenant star enclosed in a car for the entirety of its running time. The results were a surprisingly tense and gripping drama, so it’s little wonder Hardy and Knight are reteaming for FX and BBC One’s eight-part period drama, Taboo.

Sending Hardy’s back to the early 19th century as James Keziah Delaney, it’s understood the Oscar nominee penned the story along with his father, Chips Hardy, and Taboo is a dark family drama that will be brought to the small screen by Kristoffer Nyholm. (The Killing, The Enfield Haunting).

Inheriting his father’s shipping empire, James K. Delaney is left presiding over an ailing business, and it’s one that’s attracted some questionable customers in recent times. That leaves Hardy’s protagonist facing all manner of devious agendas, »

Tom Hardy Is a Very Dangerous Man to Know in 'Taboo' Trailer

25 February 2016 10:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"I have sworn that I will do very, very foolish things," Tom Hardy says in the trailer for "Taboo," an upcoming period drama from FX and BBC One. Bring it on!

The "Revenant" and "Mad Max: Fury Road" star is heading to TV to headline a show based on an original story by Hardy and his dad, Chips Hardy. The son plays James Keziah Delaney, a man who returns to 1814 London after being presumed dead. He arrives to claim his father's fortune and shipping empire, but the tumultuous time he spent in Africa is nothing compared to the treachery he finds in London.

The eight-episode series boasts a great cast, including "House of Cards" actor Michael Kelly and "Game of Thrones" players Jonathan Pryce and Oona Chaplin. It looks like a tremendous showcase for Hardy. He's unlikely to win an Oscar this weekend, but maybe he can make up for it with an Emmy. »
