Martin is currently writing the penultimate novel of his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series – the TV adaptation of Tom Perrotta’s “The Leftovers” has completely exhausted its source material in only one season.

The Leftovers Is Off to Small-Town Texas for Season Two

31 July 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Damon Lindelof’s The Leftovers returns for its second season, there will be big changes for those left behind. Here’s what we found out at the HBO Summer Press Tour session.The show is heading to Texas More specifically, the made-up city of Miracle, Texas, a small town that becomes a destination because it didn’t experience any departures. Kevin (Justin Theroux) and Nora (Carrie Coon) travel to Miracle to see if they can rebuild their lives and find their way toward being a new kind of family. "Season one is about how a family fell apart,” author and executive producer Tom Perrotta explained. “Season two is how they come back together." So why Texas? Lindelof elaborated, “The idea of leaving the town [in upstate New York] opened up a lot of possibilities, including new characters. That was very exciting for us as storytellers.” But Lindelof cautioned against calling it a reboot, »

Damon Lindelof Makes ‘No Apologies’ for ‘The Leftovers’ Season 1

30 July 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Damon Lindelof played his typical mums-the-word act during Thursday’s “The Leftovers” panel at the Television Critics Association Summer press tour. That said, he was a fairly good sport about recognizing some of the negative feedback surrounding Season 1 of the HBO drama starring Justin TherouxAmy Brenneman and Liv Tyler. “We always want the show to feel authentic, but the first season of the show we make no apologies for,” Lindelof told TV critics. “We wanted to ground the world. “To some people that may feel bleak and depressing,” he admitted.

The Leftovers is not only resurrecting Ann Dowd’s very-much-dead Patti in Season 2, the HBO drama is bringing the pot-stirrer back as a full-fledged series regular. And she’ll once again be up to no good.

“Suffice to say, she’s a huge problem that needs to be solved,” teased exec producer Damon Lindelof at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. Regarding what form Patti will take, Lindelof ruled out one prevailing theory. “We don’t want to use her as a Shakespearean ghost, which is to say she’s »

Spoiler alert: Reveals detail about season 2 of The Leftovers. When asked by the TCA press if Season 2 of dystopian-future series The Leftovers would be equally as depressing as Season 1, creator/Ep Damon Lindelof joked, “We wanted to tape Season 2 before a live studio audiencem — we wanted to opt in for a laugh track.” Despite the maudlin mood lurking over the characters in The Leftovers, Season 2 propels them forward, moving Kevin Garvey and his Gf Nora Durst to a small… »

‘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 »

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 »
