On this day in pop culture history: ‘Purple Rain’ opened in theaters

27 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

32 years ago today, the acting debut of a music icon we lost this year opened in theaters. Audiences were first treated to Purple Rain on July 27, 1984. Purple Rain proved that Prince could be just as captivating in a feature-length film as he was onstage and in music videos. The rock musical debuted a month after the album of the same name hit record stores, giving us such hits as “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and “I Would Die 4 U.” Other notable July 27 happenings in pop culture history; • 1940: Bugs Bunny made his official debut at a screening of the short film A Wild Hare. • 1979: The Amityville Horror opened in theaters. • 1982: Little Shop of Horrors had its Off-Broadway opening at the Orpheum Theatre. The writing team behind the wacky musical, Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, went on to write some of Disney Animation’s most beloved songs. »

‘Hunters’ Cancelled by Syfy After One Season

8 July 2016 3:56 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Syfy has cancelled drama series “Hunters” after one 13-episode season, Variety has confirmed.

The series, about government agents fighting a secret cell of alien terrorists, garnered low ratings and poor reviews over its brief run. Writing for Variety in April, Brian Lowry called the series premiere “utterly generic, conceptually cynical and instantly forgettable.” He added that the show “feels completely disposable, having likely found its way to Syfy because this shot-in-Australia drama was a relative bargain. Let’s hope so, anyway, because there’s nothing in the first couple of hours that warrants seeking it out.”

Produced by Universal Cable Productions, “Hunters” was one of several recent new dramas that were part of renewed push by Syfy into scripted science fiction programming. But the show failed to catch the same traction as series such as “12 Monkeys,” “The Magicians” and “The Expanse,” all of which earned renewals this year.

Hunters: Season One Ratings

8 June 2016 12:33 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Syfy has been cleaning house and getting rid of a bunch of their existing shows while introducing new ones. Will new shows like Hunters attract bigger audiences than the shows they're dropping? Will Hunters be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

On Hunters, the beloved wife of a decorated FBI agent (Nathan Phillips) is mysteriously abducted. When it becomes clear that her abduction is tied to a group of ruthless and extraterrestrial terrorists called Hunters, the agent is recruited by a secret government organization called the Exo-Terrorism Unit (Etu) to bring the aliens down. The show also stars Laura Gordon, Shannon Berry, Britne Oldford, Lewis Fitz-Gerald, Mark Coles Smith, Gareth Davies, and Julian McMahon.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart »

The Shady Truth Behind Fantastic Four's Villain

7 June 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There’s a lot of criticism that's been directed towards last year’s Fantastic Four reboot, and one of the top issues on the list was Victor von Doom, a.k.a. Doctor Doom.  While Toby Kebbell’s performance was satisfactory purely from an acting standpoint, this movie’s version of the famous Marvel villain was an even less faithful interpretation than Julian McMahon’s from the previous series. It’s been 10 months since the movie hit theaters, and now Kebbel has revealed an eye-opening truth about his time as the Fantastic Four’s arch-nemesis: it wasn’t even him in costume for most of the time. While speaking with The Daily Beast about his latest movie, Warcraft, Kebbell informed the publication that not only was the Fantastic Four that folks saw in theaters last year was not director Josh »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The appeal of a guest role is obvious as an actor can often make the maximum impact in minimum screen time. That’s why previous winners love to drop in on other shows, such as Hank Azaria showing up on “Ray Donovan,” Michael J. Fox popping over to “The Good Wife” and Brad Garrett showing his dramatic range on “Law & Order: Svu.”

Last year, Reg E. Cathey took home the prize for his work on “House of Cards” after two nominations. He’s likely to receive another nomination for the role of Freddy, though his co-star Colm Feore could also figure into the mix.

There are certain shows that tend to do well time and again in the guest category. One is “The Good Wife,” which has a plethora of potential nominees, from the aforementioned Fox to Denis O’Hare and Blair Underwood, both involved in a powerful gun control episode. »

‘Hunters’ Star Julian McMahon Recalls How Levi’s Commercial Led to First Series Role in Australia

6 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julian McMahon, best known as Dr. Christian Troy in FX’s “Nip/Tuck” (and as Victor von Doom to fans of the original “Fantastic Four” movie) plays an alien agent who attacks U.S. citizens in Syfy’s “Hunters.” But his first acting role was less sanguine, on soap opera “The Power, the Passion” in his native Australia. An advertising gig, McMahon tells Variety, helped prove he was a good fit for the part.

How did you land the soap role?

It was a mixture of things. At the time, my father had just passed away and I was working in Europe and had come back for his funeral. At the same time, I had done a few Levi’s commercials in Australia that had become a bit of a phenomenon. Because of the situation of why I returned, I decided to stay for a while, and because of this commercial, »

In Syfy’s Hunters, Gale Anne Hurd wants to make aliens scary again — and she succeeds

11 April 2016 1:31 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Among her many feature film and television credits, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) seems to return time and again to the sci-fi and horror genres, and especially to aliens. Hurd notably collaborated with James Cameron to bring to life the nightmarish alien queen of Aliens (1986), and she thinks it’s time to make aliens scary again. That’s part of her stated goal as an executive producer of Syfy’s new series Hunters. Inspired by Whitley Strieber’s novel Alien Hunter, the series, featuring Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), follows a highly classified government organization known as the Exo-Terrorism Unit, which tracks and fights … Continue reading →

Showrunner Natalie Chaidez and Stars Britne Oldford and Julian McMahon Talk Hunters

8 April 2016 11:05 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Creatures look to spread terror and fear amongst the Earth’s population in Hunters, a new series from Syfy. Ahead of the show’s April 11th premiere, Daily Dead had the chance to participate in a conference call with showrunner Natalie Chaidez and stars Britne Oldford and Julian McMahon, who discussed working with The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, collaborating with “the Greg Nicotero of Australia”, and more.

On incorporating practical effects into the show with the help of the “Greg Nicotero of Australia”:

Natalie Chaidez: And also, Jaime, just to follow up, Gale Ann Hurd has a long tradition of working with practical effects, coming up in the Roger Corman camp.

And that it were—early discussions between Gale and I [were] about grounding this really firmly in practical effects, and not only creatively helping the show, but give it a tactile and a visceral feel »

TV Review: ‘Hunters’

8 April 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Utterly generic, conceptually cynical and instantly forgettable, the two-word pitch for “Hunters” was pretty clearly “Alien terrorists!,” coupled with auspices that include “The Walking Dead” producer Gale Anne Hurd and showrunner Natalie Chaidez (“12 Monkeys”). The resulting series, though, feels completely disposable, having likely found its way to Syfy because this shot-in-Australia drama was a relative bargain. Let’s hope so, anyway, because there’s nothing in the first couple of hours that warrants seeking it out.

Yes, “Hunters” (the name given the terrorists) involves another secret government agency, the Exo-Terrorism Unit, armed with special weapons to terminate the aliens walking among us, including a ruthless cell leader played by “Nip/Tuck’s” Julian McMahon. Yet the series, inspired by Whitney Streiber’s novel “Alien Hunter,” with Ernest Dickerson directing the premiere, traffics in no shortage of clichés: An emotionally scarred FBI agent, Flynn (Nathan Phillips), is paired with an inordinately »

Hunters Season 1 Review

7 April 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

If the advertisements for Syfy’s new series Hunters were promising in their silly mish-mash of modern-day terrorism and B-movie monsters, it might not have been exactly because of the premise itself. In retrospect, Hunters piqued my interest because of the quality turn-around the network took with the largely solid first seasons of The Expanse and The Magicians.

I saw a commercial for Hunters during a particularly fun episode of the latter and, I admit, my enthusiasm for the network’s attempted return to Battlestar Galactica-level TV made me ready to consume everything on offer.

The problem with Hunters, then, is a tragically awkward disconnect between a silly premise (alien terrorists) and aggressively dour tone, one that’s only exacerbated by particularly lame world-building. It’s got the case-of-the-week camp vibe of the Warehouse 13 era, but showrunner Natalie Chaidez overly course-corrects »
