‘Game of Thrones’ New Director Teases Season 6, Why He’s Treating Show Like ‘Lost’

2 July 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mind-boggling.

That’s the way Jack Bender – one of five newly announced directors who’ll be responsible for two episodes each in the coming sixth season of “Game of Thrones” – describes the next batch of episodes on deck for HBO’s hit drama.

Bender himself will direct episodes 5 and 6 next season. And before he leaves for Belfast in a few weeks to start shooting, a commitment that will take him through the rest of the year, Bender gave Bgr a small taste of what it’s like to be attached to and have a hand in shaping one of the buzziest, most obsessed-over shows of the modern era.

Naturally, he’s not coughing up any secrets of what’s coming down the pike in Westeros — Bender, after all, is a seasoned director whose past experience has included working on everything from “Under the Dome” to “The Sopranos” to “Lost,” a »

Watch the Terminator Genisys Cast and Filmmakers Play “Save or Kill”

1 July 2015 4:22 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Over the past few months I’ve played a lot of “Save or Kill” with actors and directors. Usually they turn out pretty good. Obviously some are better than others. But the one you’re about to watch with the cast and filmmakers of Terminator Genisys might be the best one yet. And it’s not just due to Emilia Clarke making some crazy faces trying to answer my questions. If you haven’t seen “Save or Kill” yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value. Han Solo or Indiana Jones – if you were told you could only save one and the other would be erased from existence forever, who would you pick? Finally, as I have said a few times, I really enjoyed Terminator Genisys. It’s easily the 3rd best in the franchise behind Terminator and Terminator »

Watch Magic Mike Xxl’s Matt Bomer Play “Save or Kill”

29 June 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening this week is Magic Mike Xxl. Gregory Jacobs takes over as director this time around, though Steven Soderbergh is still onboard as cinematographer, camera operator, and editor. Written by Reid Carolin, the story takes place three years after the events of Magic Mike, as Channing Tatum’s character has bowed out of the stripper game for good…or so he thinks. The rest of the Kings of Tampa decide to throw in the towel as well, but not before one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach with Mike sharing the spotlight. As the boys embark on a rowdy road trip, they renew old acquaintances and make new friends. As you can see in these fifty images, Jada Pinkett Smith plays a club owner, while Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Andie MacDowell fill other supporting roles. The film also stars Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, »

The Leftovers’ Damon Lindelof on the Lessons He Learned From Season One and What to Expect This Year

25 June 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The first season of HBO’s The Leftovers was often difficult to watch, as shows about the aftermath of apocalyptic events tend to be. Set in a world still reeling from the sudden disappearance of 2 percent of its population, series co-creators Tom Perrotta and Damon Lindelof never flinched in their portrayal of grief and loss, or in depicting the extreme ways in which people cope with such pain. Those who stuck with the show for its first ten episodes, however, were rewarded with one of 2014’s best new hours (and — spoiler alert — some glimmers of hope for our characters). After the usual round of prelaunch publicity last summer,  Lindelof has generally seemed content to let his latest TV project speak for itself. But with HBO beginning to beat the drum for the new season — the first teaser for this fall’s season two was released a few days »

Consider This: Carrie Coon on 'The Leftovers' Season 2 and Playing the Opposite of a Wife and a Mother

19 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Carrie Coon had one helluva 2014. Between stealing scenes in David Fincher's "Gone Girl" as Ben Affleck's supportive twin sister, and stealing an entire episode of HBO's "The Leftovers" with her portrayal of Nora, a woman who lost her entire family on October 14, Coon became a name everyone was talking about. Nearly a year after she debuted in Damon Lindelof's latest series, Coon is in the heat of the Emmys race.  And for good reason. Coon's embodiment of a woman on the edge was free from any traditional characteristics or actorly tics associated with women suffering tremendous loss. Her portrayal of Nora demanded balancing extreme reactions, and she did so with the confidence and command of a true talent. Below Coon discusses the challenges (and fun!) of playing Nora, finding Nora's sense of humor in the darkest moments, what she wished was included from the book and what's »

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Watch the Cast of The Overnight Play “Save or Kill”

17 June 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Make no mistake, writer/director Patrick Bryce’s The Overnight is one of the weirdest comedies I’ve seen in a while. It has a simple premise—a married couple (played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling) has recently moved to a new town and is looking for a playmate for their young son. They come across another couple (Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche) who seem warm and inviting, but a simple dinner between the two families becomes much more awkward as the evening winds on. Trust me, the conversations and events that transpire are not the regular things you see in “Hollywood” movies and you will definitely be talking about the film after it ends. For more on The Overnight, watch the green or red band trailers. At the recent press day I asked Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Judith Godrèche, and Jason Schwartzman to play “Save or Kill”. If »

Why Television is Hitting the Road for Festivals

17 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The television business is on the move, as smallscreen festivals become an increasingly important part of the way networks and studios do business. Helping to break through the avalanche of content to bring shows and talent to fans and build social-media buzz, the TV fest circuit amounts to a nonstop promo tour that spans the globe.

Hard on the heels of the fourth annual Atx Television Festival, which wrapped June 7 in Austin, some industryites took off for the Monte Carlo TV Festival, which runs through June 18, while others will hit the first-ever Seriesfest June 18-21 in Denver. Then they’ll gear up to head to San Diego for the increasingly TV-centric Comic-Con from July 9-12.

Alexandra Shapiro, exec VP of marketing and digital for USA Network, says festivals help to distinguish a show early by providing the kind of momentum that normally would require much more marketing money. “In a »

Watch Inside Out’s Bill Hader Play “Save or Kill”

16 June 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m a huge fan of Bill Hader. Not only can he do amazing impressions that make me laugh out loud, over the past few years he’s proven again and again that he’s an extremely talented actor that can handle drama and comedy with ease. In Pixar’s masterpiece Inside Out, which opens this weekend, Hader voices the character Fear and as you might expect, does a fantastic job. Trust me, Inside Out is a special movie that you want to see in a theater. At the press day for the film, I landed an exclusive video interview with Hader. In the coming days I’ll post the full conversation, but today I wanted to share him playing “Save or Kill.” If you haven’t seen it yet, the game reveals which franchises, characters or bands someone would choose when pitted against another of equal value.

Watch the first teaser for Season 2 of ‘The Leftovers’

15 June 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Damon Lindelof has been known for a number of movie screenplays over the years, including Prometheus and World War Z, his most prominent effort to date has been the ABC television series Lost. The writer returned to television last season, this time on HBO with an adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s novel The Leftovers, with the writer also involved in the tv adaptation.  The series quickly gained critical and commercial success, both for the show overall and for individual performances.

The show will be making some notable changes for its second season, shifting castmembers such as Liv Tyler to potential minor roles while adding Southland‘s Regina King on as a regular. The biggest change, however, will be a shift in the location, as the central family will be stepping out of Mapleton to go to Jarden, Texas. Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, and Christopher Eccleston will all be returning, »

The Leftovers Season 2 Teaser Reveals A Key Plot Point

12 June 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When The Leftovers returns to HBO this fall, it will be a drastically different show than the one that aired last summer. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta used up all the source material in the series’ freshman run, and so the pair have been forced to give the show a soft reboot, dropping some major characters and moving the setting out of Mapleton, New York, all the way down to Jarden, Texas.

The new teaser for the series, perhaps appropriately given how different the sophomore season is expected to be, doesn’t feature any familiar faces but instead shows a long line of cars stretching across the desert, all lined up in hopes of migrating to Jarden. Soon, you realize why.

Now, Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Ann Dowd and Liv Tyler are all back for more post-apocalyptic misery and mystery, but season 1 regulars like Michael Gaston, »

First Look: HBO's 'The Leftovers' Leaves Mapleton for Texas in Season 2 Teaser

12 June 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

HBO's mournful series "The Leftovers" returns for a second season this fall, and the network's first-look teaser trailer, posted below, packs its 55-second running time full of surprises. "Pack your bags," the series' tweet to critics and reporters read. "We're headed to Texas." In its first season, Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta's bleak drama followed the residents of Mapleton, New York as they grappled with anger, obsession, doubt, and grief following the "Sudden Departure," in which two percent of the world's population vanished without a trace. The new trailer, however, features none of the series' familiar faces—including Justin Theroux and possible Emmy contenders Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, and Ann Dowd—as the camera captures an endless traffic jam of entrants to the desert outpost of Jarden. The catch? The town of 9,261 experienced exactly zero departures. HBO has not yet set a date for the return of "The Leftovers, »

The Leftovers Season 2: Watch the First Teaser Trailer

12 June 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

There was no new series in 2014 quite as divisive as HBO’s The Leftovers. The freshman drama, which premiered on the network last June, was based on the novel written by Tom Perrotta and was created by the author and Lost co-creator and showrunner Damon Lindelof, and it focused on the people left behind in after two percent of the world’s population disappeared in a Rapture-like event called “The Departure.” As someone who loves the work of both Perrotta and Lindelof (Perrotta’s my favorite author and Lost is one of my all-time favorite shows), I was astounded by how fantastic the first season of The Leftovers was, even putting the show at number one my “Best of 2014″ list. And even though it’s been a long wait for Season 2, HBO has finally given us our very first look with this all-new teaser trailer. The big change for The Leftovers in Season 2, aside from… »

The Leftovers Season 2 Teaser Is Vague, Justin Theroux-Less and Texan, Y'all

12 June 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Leftovers returns this fall and it's going South, y'all. Season two of the HBO drama starring Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman and Carrie Coon is moving locations from the fictional Mapleton, New York to Jarden, Texas. In the very vague teaser—hey, it's doing its job of teasing!—viewers get a glimpse at a long line of traffic waiting to get into Jarden. The big kicker: Jarden had 0 departures. Hmmm… Based on the book of the same name, The Leftovers hails from Lost's Damon Lindelof and the book's author Tom Perrotta. Theroux stars as Kevin Garvey, the police chief of a small town whose family was torn apart by the departure that took away 2 percent of the world's population. None of »
