The pic will be live-action with CGI used to bring the dragon to life.

Michelle Monaghan Talks Fort Bliss, Working With Director Claudia Myers, the Experience of True Detective, Adam Sandler’s Pixels, and More

19 September 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

In the indie drama Fort Bliss, U.S. Army medic and single mother Maggie Swann (Michelle Monaghan) struggles to find her place in her five-year-old son’s life, after returning home from an extended tour of duty in Afghanistan.  When news of another deployment threatens the tentative bond she’s formed with her son, she’s forced to find a way to reconcile her duties as a mother with her obligations as a soldier.  Written, directed and produced by Claudia Myers, the film also stars Ron Livingston, Manolo Cardona, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Pablo Schreiber and Dash Mihok. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Michelle Monaghan talked about how she got involved with Fort Bliss, why she found the story so compelling, how intense the experience was, and how putting on the uniform really affected the way she carried herself.  She also talked about her experience on True Detective, »

Film Review: ‘Fort Bliss’

19 September 2014 2:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The difficulty of being a woman in a man’s world — namely, the U.S. military — is the clear takeaway from “Fort Bliss,” . But it’s hard not to watch writer-director Claudia Myers’ solid, affecting drama without picking up on a similarly bothersome subtext about the dearth of substantial mainstream roles for an actress as good as Michelle Monaghan. Chronically underserved by Hollywood (with the arguable recent exception of HBO’s “True Detective”), she gives a typically fine, flinty and effortlessly moving performance in a low-budget indie vehicle that deserves broader exposure than it’s likely to receive in limited theatrical and VOD release.

A prologue set in Afghanistan’s Helmand province offers a brief, persuasive survey of the horrors of war and immediately establishes how well equipped Staff Sgt. Maggie Swann (Monaghan) is to deal with them, as she calmly and efficiently removes a deadly piece of shrapnel from »

Fort Bliss Allows Michelle Monaghan to Display Her Range

16 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

It figures that Michelle Monaghan, one of too many underutilized actresses usually relegated to playing the hero's wife, would have to go shoestring in order to find a role that allows her to display the range of her talents. She's at her best as Army medic/staff sergeant Maggie Swann in writer-director Claudia Myers's Fort Bliss, a returning-soldier drama that answers the annoyingly ubiquitous "Can women have it all?" question with an exasperated "no." After a 15-month deployment, Maggie returns home to a young son who hardly remembers her. Comfortable living with his dad (Ron Livingston) and soon-to-be stepmother (Emmanuelle Chriqui), he'd much prefer to keep things as they are than honor his parents' agreement to have him go home with his mother. Maggie is ins »

Cable Ratings: Longmire Rises With Finale, Halt and Catch Fire Ends Low

5 August 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

A&E’s Longmire on Monday night wrapped Season 3 with an audience of 3.7 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating (per TVByTheNumbers). That’s up 9 percent and a tenth week-to-week, and on par with its season opener (which did 3.9 mil/0.7).

Versus its sophomore finale, however, the drama was down 16 and 45 percent. Last year, Longmire closed with season highs and yet didn’t get renewal news until late November. So… patience.

Meteorologist Handles a Sexist Letter in the Most Poised Way Possible

28 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Julya Johnson, a meteorologist for Wate TV in Knoxville, Tn, made headlines this week when a letter from one of her longtime viewers went viral. The note - which was sent to Julya from "an elderly person who depends on" the station for daily news and weather - focuses mainly on the dresses she wears on air, which the viewer claims "fit snugly under [Julya's] bust." Julya shared the letter on her Facebook page Friday along with a heartfelt, poised response detailing her disappointment: "So, it's not fun to wake up to things like this. No return address was left, so I'll address it here. I will never, ever be able to please everyone with my appearance. It's not possible. I have tried for 12 years on-air to do that. I have 'changed my appearance' to try to please people before. It never works. So, I please myself. I like my dresses. »

Annabelle Trailer Is Heeeere!

17 July 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Remember Annabelle from director James Wan’s spooky film, The Conjuring?

She’s back and creepy girl is starring in her own movie.

New Line Cinema’s 2013 film drew from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Based on a true story, The Conjuring was the horrifying tale of how these world renowned paranormal investigators were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Confronted by a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens found themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

The Conjuring starred Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as the Warrens, and Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor as Roger and Carolyn Perron, residents of the house.

Check out the first trailer for Annabelle below.

Last summer, James Wan’s terrifying supernatural horror thriller opened to rave reviews from critics and had a $41.9 million opening weekend at the domestic box office, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

14 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »


In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »
