NCIS is adding some female presence.
Bello will play an NCIS agent, described as "a positive force, mischievous and at times acerbic," who was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the army and served two tours in Afghanistan. After joining NCIS, she built her reputation as the agency’s premier forensic psychologist. Unlike the other agents, she can second guess and challenge Gibbs (Mark Harmon), so there will be friction but also mutual respect.
“We have always been big fans of Maria Bello’s work and are excited to be introducing her as an agent who not only has a distinct talent, but also a unique relationship with Gibbs,” said NCIS executive producers George Schenck and Frank Cardea.

Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau has passed away at age 89. Landau had originally intended to be a cartoonist before studying at the esteemed Actors Studio in New York City. With his intense looks and persona, he began to be noticed by Hollywood studios. In 1959 he was cast as James Mason's gay henchman in Alfred Hitchcock's classic "North by Northwest". It was Landau who suggested playing the role as a not-so-closeted homosexual, a rather daring strategy for the era. The result made Landau standout in a cast of heavyweights that included Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and Leo G. Carroll. Roles in epic films such as "Cleopatra" and "The Greatest Story Ever Told" followed. Landau also appeared regularly on popular TV programs including "The Twilight Zone", "The Untouchables", "I Spy", "The Wild, »

Edgar Wright was, by his own account, "21 years old, living in North London, broke and on the dole – that's British for 'welfare'" in 1995 when he was struck by what he can only compare to a near-religious vision. The filmmaker was in the process of editing his first movie, a low-budget Spaghetti western homage, but the future director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz had nothing lined up and no sense of what he really wanted to do with his life. And then he put on "Bellbottoms," the first »
With Chips (2017) becoming the latest in a list of movies based on television shows, we decided to look back at previous attempts and rank our favourites. So here are the 6 best movies based on television shows.
6. The Man from Uncle (2015)
One of many shows from the 60s that explored the world of spies, The Man from Uncle (1964-1968) starred the legendary Robert Vaughn and David McCallum as Us and Russian spies, respectively. In 2015, Guy Ritchie revisited the characters of Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin in a film adaptation. Keeping the 60s cold war setting, but with epic set pieces and a tongue-in-cheek tone, The Man from Uncle was your typical Guy Ritchie fair with its slickness.
5. The A-Team (2010)
It was always going to be hard to replace the original actors who spent most of the 80s helping those in need, however once you add Liam Neeson to the cast your film immediately gains several points. »

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are famous for incorporating classic tracks into the films' scenes and narrative -- nothing beats watching Kurt Russell talk his way through 'Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)' by Looking Glass. James Gunn is not the only director who very carefully considers every track, writes to the music he has picked, and seamlessly weaves it into his films. Edgar Wright has been obsessed with his musical choices since his TV show Spaced, with the following soundtracks for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World all including some pretty deep cuts that make for fine listening, long after you've seen the film.
Baby Driver is Wright's next film, and the latest trailer not only included 'Tequila' by The Champs, but was also titled "Official TeKillYah Trailer" to put further emphasis on the music. The trailer also sports »

The hero we need right now? That’s Si Ted Hastings, the unbreakable – well, he better be – chief of AC-12, the unit that’s held us rapt for four series of Line Of Duty and counting. Ted is the man with morals of iron. He sucks diesel like no other. And the man who brings him to the screen, Adrian Dunbar, spared us some time for a chat, before he had to get back to bringing down bent coppers.

Hello! How are you?
Yeah, mate! Good [I’ve never met Si Hastin… Adrian Dunbar before, but clearly I'm thrilled he’s called me mate]. Just got the news that we’ve been commissioned for a sixth series!
I just saw that. I trust you’re going to fill me in with spoilers »

Despite the disappointing boxoffice results for the 2015 big screen version of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E", the film's co-star Armie Hammer, who played Illya Kuryakin, says that a script is being developed in the hopes of bringing a sequel to the big screen. Since the 1970s U.N.C.L.E. fans dealt with promising rumors that a big screen version was in the works, originally to star Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who starred in the TV series. However, these projects ended up being thwarted by various factors. In 1983, Vaughn and McCallum did star in "Return of The Man From U.N.C.L.E", a one-shot TV movie reunion. When the 2015 film was released it bore little resemblance to the TV series except for the Cold War setting and the names of the characters. Still, fans responded favorably to the re-imaging of »

When Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of 1960’s TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. underperformed at the box office back in 2015, no one expected a sequel would be in the works let alone thought about, however, Armie Hammer, one-half of the movie’s leading men has confirmed that producer and co-writer Lionel Wigram is indeed writing a sequel.

Armie Hammer confirmed on a recent press junket that “I called Lionel Wigram, the producer of the movie, and he and Guy produced it and wrote it all together. I was like, ‘Dude, what’s the deal? I get asked about this s–t all the time. Can you just write a sequel?’ He was like, ‘You know what? Yeah, f–k it, I’ll do it. Sure, I’ll write a sequel.’

Admittedly, it didn’t set the international box office alight with scorchingly fast returns, but 2015’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a movie with many fans around the world. Functioning almost entirely on a combination of the chemistry between the two leads – Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer – and some impressive action set-pieces, the 1960s action comedy is often referred to in interviews with its principal players. Now, one such conversation has yielded an answer that will bring hope to the countless cinema-goers hoping for a sequel.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie was based upon the popular television series of the same name, created by Sam Rolfe and Norman Felton, which was broadcast from 1964 to 1968. It starred Robert Vaughn as American Napoleon Solo, and Ian McCallum as Russian Illya Kuryakin. The two men worked for a secret international intelligence agency named the United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C. »

Back in 2015, Warner Bros. released their theatrical remake of the hit 1960s TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which starred Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, respectively. The film wasn't exactly a box office sensation, taking in just $44.5 million domestically and $109.8 million worldwide from a $75 million budget, although the critics did seem to enoy it, with the film scoring a decent 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. While it wasn't a huge hit financially, it seems that a sequel is being worked on, according to Armie Hammer.
While promoting his new action-thriller Free Fire, which hits theaters next weekend, Armie Hammer spoke to /Film, when he was asked about the possibility of a sequel for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. As it turns out, the actor recently spoke with Lionel Wigram, who produced The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and co-wrote the screenplay with director Guy Ritchie, »
While the first film didn’t exactly set the box office alight, it seems that development is underway on a sequel to Guy Ritchie’s 2015 spy caper The Man from U.N.C.L.E., with Armie Hammer revealing to SlashFilm that a script is being written.
“I called Lionel Wigram, the producer of the movie, and he and Guy produced it and wrote it all together,” said Hammer. “I was like, ‘Dude, what’s the deal? I get asked about this shit all the time. Can you just write a sequel?’ He was like, ‘You know what? Yeah, fuck it, I’ll do it. Sure, I’ll write a sequel.’ I was like, ‘If you write one, I’m sure we can get one made,’ so who knows? Today is the first day I’ve actually told anyone that story. I only told one other person who asked. Apparently, the sequel is being written right now. »

With the Wonder Woman live action movie set to arrive in theaters in just over two months, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will want to put out as much merchandise bearing the likeness of the Amazon Princess as possible. One item in particular that’s worthy of attention is that of the forthcoming Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.
Truth be told, it’s technically not a new offering, but rather a repackaging of the amazing animated film originally released back in 2009. Unfortunately, no R-rated cut will be included as was previously reported. Despite any second guessing you may have, do know that one exists out there somewhere, as the filmmakers have admitted they had to make some alterations in order to get the PG-13 rating because, at the time, WB didn’t afford as much leeway with mature content as they do now.
Moving on to the official synopsis, »

It can be rough being part one of a two (or more!) part story.
It's easy to get relegated to set-up, with all the excitement reserved for the back half of the story. NCIS Season 14 Episode 15 didn't exactly escape that, unfortunately.
To be fair, it's a bit more complicated than that; there was a more-or-less self-contained plot for "Pandora's Box, Part I" in the less-than-fake terrorist attack that was an attempted assassination.
The connection to the follow-on portion on NCIS: New Orleans, however, depended on the rather impressively coincidental timing of a hack that resulted in the loss of Homeland Security's terrorist response playbook.
After all, Mr. Vengeance-Murder Homeland Security Aide didn't hack the playbook.
I could complain about the fact that Alex Carter's Homeland Security boss was so stupid and careless to make such a thing vulnerable in the manner he did, but that part was sadly believable. »
