‘Grey’s Anatomy’s’ Martin Henderson on Nathan vs. Owen, Patrick Dempsey’s Legacy

19 November 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not seen the Nov. 19 episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” titled “Things We Lost in the Fire.”

“Grey’s Anatomy’s” new leading man Martin Henderson has ruffled many feathers since he walked into Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital as Dr. Nathan Riggs.

Butting heads with Owen (Kevin McKidd), the entire medical staff — and plenty of viewers — have been wondering what went on in the past between Owen and Nathan, and Thursday night’s midseason finale finally shed more light on the dueling duo’s history.

A big fire brought tons of injured firefighters into the hospital, marking Bailey’s (Chandra Wilson) first huge crisis since assuming her role as chief. Among the firefighters was Owen’s mother’s boyfriend, who ended up being treated by Nathan, much to Owen’s dismay. With Owen mad that his enemy was performing surgery on his mother’s man, »

Owen's Shocking Family Drama Takes the Hospital By Storm in Grey's Anatomy's Winter Finale

19 November 2015 6:46 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Owen Hunt's mysterious grudge against Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital's newest doctor has finally been revealed—and it just might be everyone's unraveling. It wouldn't be a Grey's Anatomy winter finale without some disaster befalling Seattle, so when a raging fire brought wounded first-responders to the hospital, Hunt's mom's younger boyfriend (remember him?) was among them. And her presence in the ER brought to light the big secret: Riggs (Martin Henderson) was married to Hunt's sister. A sister he's never told anyone about. But the family drama didn't just throw Hunt (Kevin McKidd) into a tailspin. No, his insistence on keeping everything under wraps claimed Meredith and »

Blu-Ray Review: Toy Story That Time Forgot

3 November 2015 12:16 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

  Toy Story That Time Forgot was originally aired on ABC December 2, 2014.  It's after Christmas, and Bonnie has a play date with her friend Mason. Mason just got a new video game system, and most people should be able to relate with wanting to play your friend's new [insert whatever system excited you most as a child]. Video games are also brought to light as a potential threat to toys, which they may be. As the Battlesaurs, Mason's toys, are quickly forgotten the old gang we have grown up with enters Mason's room. 

  This short is a great chapter in the Toy Story anthology that welcomes us back with it's heart and sharp humor. Due to time restraints, things move quickly, which is only odd during some moments with Trixie (Kristen Schaal) and Reptillus Maximus (Kevin McKidd). Of course Buzz and Woody (Tom Hanks and Tim Allen) are present, though a bit more absent than we are accustomed to. It »

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Hits 250 Episodes: Shondaland’s Betsy Beers Looks Back on 10 Years

22 October 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Grey’s Anatomy” turned 250 Thursday night, hitting a major milestone. To celebrate the 250th episode, exec producer Betsy Beers takes a look back on the highs and lows of ABC’s long-running medical drama.

Beers — who has been a staple at Shondaland, working hand-in-hand with Shonda Rhimes on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” “How To Get Away with Murder” and the upcoming midseason drama “The Catch” — says she still laughs and cries frequently, even 12 seasons in.

“Every episode, something gets me and every season, something gets me,” Beers tells Variety. “Sometimes, I cry because I’m sad, and sometimes, I cry just because it’s just emotional and it’s super awesome.”

After what seems like countless character deaths, romance woes and coming-of-age stories, Beers admits that she’s more in love with “Grey’s” now than ever. “I think what’s so cool about this season is that so many »

‘Dog Soldiers’ is a horror-action mashup made in heaven

12 October 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dog Soldiers

Written and directed by Neil Marshall

U.K., 2002

English writer-director Neil Marshall’s value as a commodity in the filmmaking business as cooled off somewhat in the wake of an extraordinary first few years of the new millennium. He mostly concentrates on television now (which, in his defence, is where a lot of incredibly talented people opt to work nowadays), but from 2002 to around 2008, his name was synonymous with terrifically high-octane, bone chilling horror-action films. Things took a turn with Doomsday (2008), which received significant studio backing but flopped at the box office, followed by 2010’s Centurion, which received an extremely quiet theatrical release. Say what one will of his latter theatrical efforts, nothing will quench the lustre of his 2002 debut, the insanely amusing Dog Soldiers.

Twenty years in the making, it sounds like Trainspotting 2 is ready to go!

Danny Boyle Wants To Do "Trainspotting 2"

7 September 2015 5:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The long talked about follow-up to Danny Boyle's seminal 1996 film "Trainspotting" looks to be ready to go, with only scheduling issues being the hold up.

Appearing at Telluride for the premiere of his new "Steve Jobs" biopic, Boyle says he's planning for the "Trainspotting" sequel to be his next film. He tells Deadline:

"All the four main actors want to come back and do it. Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."

The four actors he's referring to are Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, and Kevin McKidd. Miller is committed as the lead in CBS' "Elementary" while McKidd has a regular slot on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy".

Trainspotting 2: Danny Boyle confirms that all four leads want to return

7 September 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Trainspotting director Danny Boyle has confirmed that all four leads are keen to return for the sequel.

Boyle suggested to Deadline that the main obstacle now is accommodating everyone's busy schedules.

"All the four main actors want to come back and do it," Boyle said. "Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."

Robert Carlyle currently stars in Once Upon a Time, while Jonny Lee Miller stars in Elementary. Ewan McGregor and Ewen Bremner also featured in the original film, alongside Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

The script, written by John Hodge, is based on author Irvine Welsh novel Porno - the sequel to the Trainspotting book release.

Interestingly, Carlyle recently suggested that any movie version of Porno would need a rewrite given the changes in internet pornography since the novel was written.
