Film Review: ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1′

10 November 2014 3:59 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Katniss Everdeen becomes the face of a revolution in “Mockingjay — Part 1,” a tricky transitional episode of “The Hunger Games” franchise that abandons the reality-tv bloodsports of the first two movies to conjure a dour, grimly escalating vision of all-out war. Unsubtly resonant, at times quite rousing and somewhat unsatisfying by design, this penultimate series entry is a tale of mass uprising and media manipulation that itself evinces no hint of a rebellious streak or subversive spirit: Suzanne Collins’ novels may have warned against the dangers of giving the masses exactly what they want to see, but at this point, the forces behind this hugely commercial property are not about to risk doing anything but. It’s a sensible if not exactly inspired strategy, and with Jennifer Lawrence once more carrying the proceedings and director Francis Lawrence (no relation) dutifully replicating the elements of an inherently cinematic story, Lionsgate’s plans for worldwide B. »

TV Review: ‘Masters Of Sex,’ ‘Ray Donovan’ Finales Avoid Sophomore Jinx (Spoilers)

28 September 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was no sophomore jinx for Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” and “Ray Donovan,” with the former ending a truly terrific season on a relatively low-key note, while the latter’s finale contained more narrative fireworks, settling scores and potentially resetting the table on some key relationships. All told, the two series – introduced behind “Dexter” and “Homeland” – have established themselves as blue-chip players, with “Masters” shining brighter but “Ray” not lacking for visceral moments and showy, marquee roles.

Anchored by Michael Sheen (whose omission from the roster of Emmy nominees was a testament to the strength of that category) and Lizzy Caplan, “Masters of Sex” started the year on a strong note – peaking in its third episode, really a two-character study of the pair in a hotel room – and largely maintained those gaudy standards throughout.

Granted, the season finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) didn’t involve any grand cliffhangers, »

Shifting Gears: Rob McLachlan talks about Millennium, Human Target, and Ray Donovan

22 July 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Rob McLachlan about cycling, founding a production company, and working within the realms of film and television…

Before becoming a Primetime Emmy nominated cinematographer Rob McLachlan (Game of Thrones) was heading down a different career path which saw him become a Canadian Cycling Champion and Canada Games Gold medallist. “I was at the point that I was going to have to quit school and go train.  I was on a shortlist to potentially ride in the Montreal Olympics but you couldn’t make a living at it back then unless you went to Europe and went whole hog.  At the same time I was into photography and making Super 8 films.  I got bitten by that bug.  When I was looking at making a career that seemed like the best. My father was a commercial illustrator and painter who drilled into my brother and I that it »

17 July 2014 1:27 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The first season of Ray Donovan performed very well for Showtime but will that trend continue? Will the ratings rise in season two or will they fall? Will Ray Donovan be renewed for a third season or could it be cancelled instead? We'll have to wait and see.

Ray Donovan revolves around Los Angeles' best professional fixer (Liev Schreiber), the man who's called in to make the city's celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls' most complicated and combustible situations go away.

Liev Schreiber on ‘Ray Donovan’ Cast: ‘We Came Up As Clean-Up Guys Instead of Leading Men’

10 July 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Time Warner Cable and Showtime pulled out all the stops at Wednesday’s spirited fete for the season two premiere of the gritty drama “Ray Donovan,” which nabbed an Emmy nomination in the best supporting actor category for Jon Voight, who plays Mickey Donovan, Liev Schreiber’s on-screen father sprung from prison and wreaking havoc on Ray’s personal life.

“There are so many good scenes when I look back on our last season,” said Voight. “I like to look at things as a whole, as a complete body of work (rather) than break things apart. It’s a joy to be a part of something as excellent as this.”

TV Review: ‘Ray Donovan,’ Season 2

10 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ray Donovan, the Hollywood fixer in the show by the same name, is going to be preoccupied for a time fixing his family – and himself. That was where season one ended and season two picks up, in this Showtime series of intermittent appeal, where Liev Schreiber’s taciturn leading man is frequently eclipsed by the raging id that is his ex-con father, played with unrestrained gusto by Jon Voight. Several cast additions enliven the show, but the dark turn into priestly abuse and revenge has left the series toting excess baggage – and not just a baseball bat – in these opening frames.

For those who missed season one (and Spoiler warnings for those who might begin belatedly), Ray’s emotionally damaged brother, Bunchy (Dash Mihok), turned out to be not the only family member molested by a priest, who the brothers (and it bears repeating: No trio of on-screen siblings have »

Latest Hunger Games Promo Arrives

9 July 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Because one sincerely insincere address is never enough for President Snow (Donald Sutherland) of The Hunger Games infamy, the malevolently benign Capitol ruler and part-time Captain Birdseye impersonator has taken to the airwaves once again, but this time there’s a distinct difference. And no, we don’t mean that the glassy-eyed Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) has been joined by Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason, but that is a notable shift. What’s important here is that the rebels from the districts have, thanks to the technical expertise of Beetee (Jeffrey Wright), hacked the signal to announce that the Mockingjay lives. Which is to say, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is fully part of the long-gestating revolution, one finally birthed in fire and fury.Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2 have been filming back to back under the direction of Francis Lawrence, who is now guiding the movies through post-production.

Helena Bonham Carter will star in World War I drama “The Guns of August,” portraying her real-life step-great grandmother Margot Asquith.

Ray Donovan To Return To Sky Atlantic This Summer

9 May 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve just received the following press release which confirms that hit Us TV show Ray Donovan will return to UK screens later this summer, airing exclusively on Sky Atlantic.

I must confess to having a soft spot for this gritty series about the L.A. based fixer, played by Liev Schrieber, and supporting cast that includes Jon Voight and, in the last season, the always reliable James Woods.

The show airs on Showtime in North American territories.

Here’s the full release.

Set in the sprawling mecca of the rich and famous, the series stars Golden Globe nominee Liev Schreiber as La’s best professional fixer, the man called in to make the city’s celebrities, superstar athletes, and business moguls’ most complicated and combustible situations go away. »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 Gains Michelle Forbes

6 May 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 isn’t due to hit theaters until November of this year, the dystopian action-adventure is filming back-to-back with the series’ final installment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, which means that Lionsgate is working to cast roles for both films simultaneously. Today, The Killing actress Michelle Forbes has joined the cast as Lieutenant Jackson.

In the Ya trilogy from which The Hunger Games series was adapted, written by Suzanne Collins, Jackson first appeared midway through Mockingjay. A member of District 13, which paid a terrible price for rebelling against the all-mighty Capitol of futuristic Panem, Jackson was also a skilled sharpshooter who assisted protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in her uprising.

The Hunger Games franchise has proved highly successful both at the box office and with critics. Expectations are high for Mockingjay, especially given that Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence is back behind the camera, »
