Spectre Theme Song Betting Closed After Massive, Anonymous Radiohead Wager

30 July 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Remember those U.K.-based bookies we keep hearing about? They were the ones placing bets on who the new James Bond would be after Daniel Craig, naming Homeland.s Damian Lewis as the frontrunner. Well, these folks are now doing the same with who will eventually come to perform the theme song for Spectre . or, at least, they were. Betting has now been closed because someone dropped an insanely large amount of money in favor of Radiohead. THR says that a British bookie "suspended" its betting after an anonymous gambler dropped £15,000 (which translates to roughly $23,000) on Radiohead as the group that will record the next James Bond theme song. While only Sam Mendes knows at the moment who will sing the next Bond theme song, the bookies suggested that this type of action was enough to point to Radiohead as a new frontrunner even though the iconic rock outfit »

Emmys exclusive: Which episodes are submitted by Limited Series Supporting Actor nominees?

29 July 2015 8:27 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

For the first time in Emmys history, the academy has decided this year that the supporting nominees from limited series must choose specific episodes to submit to judges. (Nominated performers from TV movies will continue to submit the entire project.) This is true only for the supporting nominees and not for the lead contenders. Gold Derby has exclusively learned the episodes that will be submitted to the Emmys by all of the 2015 nominees for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation review: Tom Cruise's spy series in need of rejuvenation

24 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Christopher McQuarrie; Screenwriter: Christopher McQuarrie; Starring: Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Alec Baldwin, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris; Running time: 131 mins; Certificate: 12A

Tom Cruise lights the fuse on the latest instalment of the Mission: Impossible series, this time bringing along his Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie to call the shots. Now on his fifth go-around as Ethan Hunt, Cruise has steered the Mission movies away from distinct authorial voices and into showreels for his own daredevil stunt work.

The first three offerings all boasted filmmakers with their own stylistic flourishes (De Palma - tension! Woo - doves! Abrams - lens flare!) that made these intriguing (if not always entirely successful) spy thrillers with a clear identity. Rogue Nation is very much a facsimile of 2011's Ghost Protocol, a woah-look-Cruise-is-really-doing-that-stuff affair. Story innovation and character development fall by the wayside here, idly filing time until the next IMAX-boosted set piece arrives. »

The 2015 Emmy Award Nominations

16 July 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.

HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).

With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »

First Teaser For Homeland Season Five Unveils A Very Different Conflict

13 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s hard to believe that we have, so far, only seen 46 episodes of Homeland. By the time season four drew to a close earlier this year, we had watched Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) go from being an intelligence officer trying to prove a theory about a rescued U.S Marine, to being an absentee parent running the Islamabad CIA station during arguably the darkest fictional period in its difficult fictional history.

We’ve seen stunning action set-pieces, high drama, and epic, sweeping romance. The show has encompassed complex political issues and intrigue on a global scale, while equally – and successfully – focusing on intimate family drama. This is that rarest of beasts – a television drama series that earns every single one of its stripes.

So, after a brutal season finale, and having licked our wounds and re-grouped, we begin to look toward season five, the plot of which is described »

Homeland Season 5 Trailer: Saul Calls an Atoning Carrie “Naive and Stupid”

9 July 2015 2:28 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

After the departure of Brody (Damian Lewis) in Season 3, Showtime’s CIA-focused series Homeland went through something of a revamp in Season 4, which found Carrie (Claire Danes) as the station chief of the CIA’s base of operations in Islamabad. But things spiraled downhill quickly there for the bureau and for Carrie, which led to some of the best, more intense episodes from any show last year. [caption id="attachment_375676" align="alignright" width="300"] Image via Showtime[/caption] And then Homeland did what it always does when it starts to get great: it shot itself in the foot. The last several hours focused on Carrie’s never-before-seen mother, and grounded itself in her home situation (what little of it there is), while also teasing a romance that doesn’t really need to be there between herself and Quinn (Rupert Friend — there’s a friend joke to be made here, but I’ll let you just imagine it).

Sand, Sun And RPattz Star In This Full 'Queen Of The Desert' Trailer - MTV

8 July 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

The full trailer for Werner Herzog’s “Queen of the Desert” is here, which means Robert Pattinson fans need to go ahead and push play to catch a longer glimpse at his T.E. Lawrence impression. But don’t expect him to be the one swinging with the swoons in “Queen” because the romantic spotlight has actually gone instead to Nicole Kidman and James Franco (and sort of Damian Lewis, too). The pair portray Gertrude Bell and her lover, and while Franco might be the multi-hyphenate Irl, it’s her character that does all the things in the movie, including writing, archaeology, exploring, cartography, an . »

Follow the Money with Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti in Showtime's 'Billions' Trailer

8 July 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Damian Lewis returns to Showtime, and he's got a high-caliber Emmy winner to join him in his last effort, Paul Giamatti. The two actors topline the New York-based drama series "Billions" set to air next year, which just got its first trailer today. This promo looks to toy the line between somewhat interesting and becoming something of a retread of high corporate films and TV shows you've seen all-so-many-times before. The cast is likely going to get people talking more than the plot itself, though, and with dialogue bouncing between entirely generic ("When did it become a crime to succeed in this countryc") and saucily fun ("What's the point of having f**k you money if you never say f**k youc") it's hard to decipher which direction the show with steer. If you notice a bit of an Aaron Sorkin-vibe here, you're not alone and that's probably intentional. »

Showtime’s Billions Trailer Follows the Money with Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis

8 July 2015 12:38 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The first look at Showtime's new series Billions heavily features Emmy and Golden Globe winners Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis, who play two Type A personalities going head to head in the brutal world of New York City politics and finance. In one corner we have U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti) whose political ambitions and moral compass place him on a collision course with hedge fund billionaire Bobby Axelrod (Lewis) when the latter is suspected of fraudulent trading. The first teaser for Showtime's new show, due out in the 2016 season, has Rhoades and Axelrod exchanging a variety of verbal blows that are presumably just hints of the fireworks that are to come. After all, between these two power players there are literally billions on the line, but you'll have to tune in to see who wins the prize fight.
