With a movie like 'Tomorrowland,' it's a good thing 'Space Mountain' got scrapped for 'Star Wars'

14 September 2016 12:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was four short years ago that Disney tightened their grip on our collective pop culture nostalgia. Having already secured Marvel Entertainment, the House of Mouse turned their all-seeing eye to Lucasfilm. On October 30, 2012 the acquisition announcement was made and the rest is now history. At the time fans were leery of the purchase, worried that Star Wars would become sanitized to bring in the all-mighty dollar of the preschool set. But while those fears have since been laid to rest with the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the merger wasn’t without its hiccups and casualties. One of them being an untitled sci-fi project by Max Landis, who was riding high off on the buzz Chronicle back in early 2012. First reported by Variety in January of 2012, the space adventure was axed as being “too similar” once they had Star Wars in their pocket. SlashFilm brought this tidbit »

30 years ago today: ‘Watchmen’ changed comics

31 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

“Who watches the Watchmen?” It was 30 years ago that the comic that would change comics first hit shelves. Watchmen issue #1 had a cover date of September 1986 and got unboxed in a lot of stores in late August that year. The Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons limited series, which ran for 12 issues, deconstructed and reinterpreted the superhero genre and also proved to a wider audience that comics aren’t just for kids. Now Watchmen is taught in college courses. Watchmen demonstrated the power of the medium of comics. In Art of the Comic Book: An Aesthetic History, Robert Harvey wrote that Moore and Gibbons “had demonstrated as never before the capacity of the medium to tell a sophisticated story that could be engineered only in comics.” Watchmen was in good company in 1986 — it was also the year Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Maus debuted. After several attempts to adapt Watchmen to film, »

Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Anoints A New Madam Executioner

24 August 2016 8:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last Week’S Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Gives Us A Literal Garbage Fire

In Elliot’s Head, Two’s A Crowd

Having revealed that Elliot has been in prison, with his release imminent, you might think that this week’s installment would drop him back into the world and start moving all of the various storylines towards a convergence, or at least the start of a new phase. But Elliot and Mr. Robot are nowhere to be seen, nor are Tyrell or Joanna Wellick; instead we get an fsociety-centric episode.

Some Kind Of A Revolutionary

With the stars of the show taking a break, we get more time with Mobley (Azhar Khan) and Trenton (Sunita Mani). In a flashback to the beginning of the series we see their hacker version of a meet-cute, which involves her pwning him while waiting to meet Elliot. Instead, it’s Darlene who arrives, and reads »

Five Non-Horror Shows That Genre Fans Will Love

4 August 2016 4:32 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Anyone that follows any of my social media profiles (I’m on everything short of LinkedIn) is aware that I watch a lot of television. Discovering cult classics like The Prisoner to current hits like American Horror Story, I legit schedule my lack of social life around my shows. I do have morals and refuse to post spoilers unlike the many assholes out there who just can’t resist a good Game Of Thrones supposed death. My love always resides in horror and there’s a variety of horror programming on several networks, each aiming for their own Walking Dead hit, but I don’t stick to just one type of programming. There’s other shows I’ve been checking out (Ok, maybe obsessed with) that prove to be just as riveting and, at times, just as scary as what you might find in a murder house.

‘The Good Place’ Boss Mike Schur: The Model in My Head is ‘Lost’

2 August 2016 3:56 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC’s new comedy “The Good Place” is set in an imagined afterlife, and creator Mike Schur says he took his inspiration from a famous ABC hit drama.

During a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, Schur explained that each episode of the show has a contained story, and at the end, “something dramatic happens and it sends the story spiraling,” he said. “The model in my head is ‘Lost.'”

One of the first people he called when he was developed the series, he said, was “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof. “I took him to lunch and said, ‘We’re going to play a game ‘Is this anything?'”

Of upcoming episodes beyond the pilot, he says, “I imagine this going in the ‘Lost’ way,” with cliffhangers and big events.

The show stars Kristen Bell as a woman named Eleanor who wakes up to find out that she’s dead; Ted Danson co-stars as the »

‘The Leftovers’ Delayed Until 2017: Can It Win Some Emmys Now, Please?

2 August 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Over the weekend, freshly-anointed HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys confirmed rumors that “Game of Thrones” would be delayed until the summer of 2017. While surely a disappointment for the half-dozen fans (-ish) who actually want to watch the otherwise insignificant drama, it’s a bigger concern for HBO in terms of their true passion: gold digging – the good kind!

Game of Thrones” won’t be a factor in the Emmys race next year because Season 7 will debut after the submission deadline, and that means the network that covets trophies like Tyrion Lannister covets Dornish wines will need other shows on its roster to make up the difference in the drama categories.

And you won’t believe what Bloys named as the network’s primary option.

Star Trek: was Cumberbatch supposed to be Gary Mitchell?

27 July 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 28, 2016

Was Benedict Cumberbatch originally going to play a different villain in Star Trek Into Darkness? Ryan looks at the clues...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness.

It was among the worst-kept movie secrets of 2013: the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain in Star Trek Into Darkness. Long before the movie's release, speculation had swirled around the character's anonymous-sounding name: John Harrison. Clearly, fans realised, it was a cover for something far more dramatic.

Wasn't it more likely that Cumberbatch was actually lined up to play a recognisable character from the Star Trek canon? Some suggested Harrison might actually be Charlie Evans, the sinister teenage boy with psychic powers who terrorised the Enterprise in the second ever Original Series episode, Charlie X. Others suggested Cumberbatch might be taking on the role of Khan Noonien Singh, a character first introduced in series one's Space Seed. »

Emmys: Nearly 25% of Acting Nominees Are Non-White, but Drama Still Lags Behind

14 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For the second year in a row, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences can laugh at movies’ #OscarsSoWhite problem. Actors of color nabbed 18 of the major 73 acting nominations in the categories of lead and supporting performers in drama, comedy, and limited series. That’s just shy of 25%, and even an improvement over last year’s historic Emmys, where 16 actors of color were among the 75 nominees.

Every category for a lead actor featured a nominee of color: First-time nominee Rami Malek, who is Egyptian-American, broke into the club for lead actor in a drama, which last year was entirely white. Similarly, “black-ish”’s Tracee Ellis Ross broke the color barrier in lead actress for a comedy, which was also an all-white slate last year.

This year’s nominees were also more diverse behind the camera. Aziz Ansari, nominated for lead actor in a comedy for “Master Of None,” was also nominated for writing and directing; so was »

Emmys 2016: The 31 Wildest Snubs & Surprises

 Snubs

Orange is the New Black

Not only was the (former) awards favorite from Netflix bumped out of the Outstanding Drama Series race (in favor of “The Americans,” which is important to remember during this mourning period), but even its back-to-back supporting actress winner — in comedy and drama — Uzo Aduba didn’t make the cut. “Orange” only snagged a nod for Outstanding Casting, which makes the exclusion of the cast members themselves all the more questionable.

The Good Wife

One of the more aggressive series in terms of campaigning these last few years, CBS’ beloved drama couldn’t break into the big categories for broadcast in 2016. It had the best shot of any offered by the big four as an overall series, but love was lost for the twice-nominated series. After all, it hasn’t been »

Emmy Nominations 2016: My Snappy Judgments

14 July 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The 2016 Emmy nominations were, as per usual, both thrilling and maddening. For every inspired nod (The Americans! Finally!) there was a snub that had me scratching the skin off my scalp (no Eva Green again?!). So without further adieu, I give you the good, the bad and the downright ugly from this year’s list.

I’m Super-Ecstatic About:

* The Americans at long last! And Matthew Rhys! And Keri Russell!

* The Academy recognizing the underrated Thomas Middleditch from Silicon Valley.

* Constance Zimmer scoring a supporting actress nod for UnREAL.

* Louie Anderson getting recognized for his gender-bending Baskets work.

10 Films That Directors Just Made Up On The Fly

11 July 2016 10:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Have you heard about Alien: Covenant? The film that was Prometheus 2 then Alien: Paradise Lost, before it adopted its current title, may be in trouble. Not the kind of trouble that Prometheus faced (namely, putting Damon Lindelof in charge of the script) – this is much worse. Ben Child at the Guardian has added up all the info we have on Covenant so far and come to the conclusion that Ridley Scott is seemingly just making the film up as he goes.

The changing title is just the start of it. Lindelof was re-hired to pen the Prometheus sequel, then fired. The idea to keep the xenomorph out of the picture was introduced, then dropped, while long after filming began with Noomi Rapace replaced on lead character duties by Katherine Waterston, it was announced that Rapace would return for the sequel after all.

Alien: Covenant isn’t the first of »

Emmys Dream Ballot: The Most Deserving Drama Nominees

5 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Thursday, July 14, the Television Academy will announce the nominees for the 68th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, and we have all the faith in the world they’ll get every single choice just right.

Ok, maybe they won’t, but only because the 19,000-plus voters literally can’t get every choice right. Unless all the categories squeeze out miraculous ties resulting in extra nominees — similar to last year’s Supporting Actress in a Comedy category — there are simply too many outstanding series and performers to fit on the overall ballot.

So our choices below not only represent IndieWire’s highest recommendations in the top-line drama categories, but also some of the shows and performers overlooked thus far in the campaign season. It would be grand to hear their names announced come nomination day, but we just hope they know how much their work has been appreciated this past TV season. »
