Hawaii Five-0: Season Five Ratings

18 October 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season saw a big decline in the demo ratings for Hawaii Five-0. CBS renewed the series for a fifth season and reportedly ordered 25 episodes. Is this a sign that they plan to end the series or could it be renewed for a sixth season if the ratings are strong enough? We'll have to wait and see.

A reimagining of the original Hawaii Five-0 TV show, this police procedural series revolves around an elite state police task force that fights crime in the 50th state. The series stars Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, Masi Oka, and Chi McBride.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available »

Why Robert Downey Jr. should guest star on Marvel's Agents of Shield

8 October 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The Joss Whedon fansite Whedonesque recently picked up on Robert Downey Jr.'s comments from his Reddit Ama chat, saying that Marvel's Agents of Shield is the show that he'd like to guest star on.

This obviously could be pretty cool, since not only is Robert Downey Jr. a great, likeable actor with plenty of screen presence, he also embodies an iconic character. Sherlock Holmes would be awesome on Marvel's Agents of Shield! (FitzSimmons are fans, after all.)

Okay, that was a joke. Obviously he'd play a time-travelling Charlie Chaplin, providing the taciturn Melinda May with someone to match in terms of silent acting. Though it's unlikely that even Charlie Chaplin could do Tai-Chi eye-rolling as well as Melinda May.

More seriously, Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man. And Tony Stark. It would be a cool way to tie in with the Marvel movies (the Captain America: The Winter Soldier »

Bryan Fuller makes science fiction fun again with 'High Moon'

15 September 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Tonight, Americans have the choice between watching Dancing with the StarsMonday Night Football, and … a SyFy movie with gay Russian spies on the moon. Curious? You’re not alone: SyFy executives thought the same thing of Bryan Fuller’s newest creation, High Moon. For four years, Fuller and the channel entered into an on-again, off-again relationship. At first it was a pilot, then a miniseries, then back to a pilot, then back to… you get the idea.

“ecause of how strange the development process was at the network, I don’t think anybody was surprised [that it wasn't made into a series],” Fuller said. “Right before we were ordered, »

Hawaii Five-0 Finale: Grover Gets Put to the Ultimate Test

9 May 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

It's no secret that Swat Captain Lou Grover (Chi McBride) doesn't always see eye to eye with McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) on Hawaii Five-0. But that may change on Friday's Season 4 finale (9/8c, CBS), when Grover finds his professional ethics are put to the ultimate test.

"He starts off the season looking at what McGarrett's doing as being unorthodox. It's everything he hates," showrunner Peter Lenkov tells "[The finale] brings everything full circle. ... Grover's put into a situation where he's got to act the same way, and I think he sort of learns a lot about himself and gains a new respect for McGarrett through the course of that story. He sees that sometimes you have to play dirty in order to get the bad guys."

Ultimate Mary Jane Watson, Friend and Soulmate to Peter Parker

22 April 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the major differences between Spider-Man in the main Marvel universe and the Ultimate Marvel universe is the centrality of his relationship with Mary Jane Watson. In the mainstream universe, Peter Parker had been in serious relationships with Daily Bugle secretary Betty Brant and Gwen Stacy before he started dating Mary Jane. However, in the Ultimate universe, Mary-Jane is Peter’s first love. They were good friends before they started dating. And even after Peter dated Kitty Pryde, Gwen Stacy, and smooched Black Cat, and Mary Jane went out with Mark Raxton, the frontman of the band Molten Man, they either remained friends  or got back together after their respective breakups. But Mary-Jane definitely has her own life outside of Spider-Man or Peter Parker. She is friends with Liz Allen and helps her come to terms with being a mutant and eventually warms up to Gwen Stacy just before »

Draft Day review

14 April 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 15 Apr 2014 - 06:35

A movie about the internal politics of American football? Ron reckons Draft Day reaches too far and falls a little short

When you think about an actor, there's usually something that comes to mind immediately. There's something that the actor embodies, physically or emotionally, that you immediately associate with that person. Tom Hanks is a nice guy. That's what he is. Christopher Walken is intense and off-kilter. Even when he's playing it straight, he's weird. Kevin Costner can probably be best described as casually charming. He's aged into a sort of nice dad sort of actor; he's got a world weariness that suggests he's been through the wringer, but he's learned from his mistakes and he's willing to pass along his wisdom, but he's not going to insist upon himself.

Given his history with athletics in movies, Kevin Costner is the perfect choice to »

Hustlers DVD Review

14 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Wayne Kramer

Starring: Paul Walker, Norman Reedus, Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser

Running Time: 112 minutes

Certificate: 18

Hustlers (or Pawn Shop Chronicles in the Us) follows the lives of a group of people who happen to pass through the same pawn shop. As their stories unfold, we see how their paths cross and where their journeys take them.

Three main stories see Paul Walker planning a robbery with his friends while high on drugs, Matt Dillon on the hunt for his missing wife and Brendan Fraser touring as an Elvis tribute act.

Paul Walker captivates in this insane adventure as the hilarious, dirty and drug-fueled imbecile – which certainly makes a nice surprise for the actor more commonly known for being a pretty boy in his roles. His character is so high when the film begins that he sees fire come out of painted flames! However, despite the severity of »

'Draft Day' Review: 10 Things to Know About the New Kevin Costner Sports Movie

11 April 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There have been plenty of movies made about football but none made about draft day -- a seemingly mythical occurrence when the major football franchises make bids for the hottest college players. Well, thankfully "Ghostbusters" director Ivan Reitman and former Robin Hood Kevin Costner are about to right that wrong with "Draft Day," a drama set in the high stakes world of the NFL draft.

"Draft Day" takes place over a single 24-hour period, where a frazzled general manager (played by Costner) is running around, trying to restore glory to his team (the Cleveland Browns) and sort out his personal life (his girlfriend has just told him that she's pregnant and his dad recently died). If anyone was wondering about the analytical nitty gritty that went into the behind-the-scenes lead-up to the NFL draft, then this is the movie for you.

But what about those (like myself) who only have »

Paramount unveiled the first development slate for their new TV division, which includes TV adaptations of the 1998 drama The Truman Show and the 2003 thriller Narc.

[Updated]: R.I.P. James Rebhorn: Read The Obituary He Wrote For Himself

25 March 2014 12:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Updated: It was already very sad news that James Rebhorn had passed away and now Deadline has shared the obituary he wrote for himself. It brings us, and James, an even more honourable look at the life of a man who not only fought for as long as he could but also the respect and love he had for everything in his life. It’s very sad, yet beautiful and reflective and deserves to be shared:

James Robert Rebhorn was born on Sept. 1, 1948, in Philadelphia, Pa. His mother, Ardell Frances Rebhorn, nee Hoch, loved him very much and supported all his dreams. She taught him the value of good manners and courtesy, and that hospitality is no small thing. His father, James Harry Rebhorn, was no less devoted to him. From him, Jim learned that there is no excuse for poor craftsmanship. A job well done rarely takes more or »
