As Showtime has gotten in the habit of doing, the first episodes of Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex’s Season 3 premieres are now available on YouTube (and Showtime’s website). The breasts may be blurred and the language cleaned up, but you can certainly get an idea of where the series find our favorite characters. In Ray Donovan’s great opener, Ray (Liev Schreiber) is adrift from his family and all those close to him, and suffers a big personal loss. And as he wrestles with his issues at home, he’s also introduced to a new and powerful client, Albert Finney (Ian McShane). You can check out the full premiere episode below: Masters of Sex has (yet another) time jump to launch its third season, one which finds Bill (Michael Sheen) and Virginia (Lizzy Caplan) at odds over the work and their future, and also engaging in a »

'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl': Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' review: Mostly an enjoyable romp (Oscar Movie Series) Pirate movies were a Hollywood staple for about three decades, from the mid-'20s (The Sea Hawk, The Black Pirate) to the mid-to-late '50s (Moonfleet, The Buccaneer), when the genre, by then mostly relegated to B films, began to die down. Sporadic resurrections in the '80s and '90s turned out to be critical and commercial bombs (Pirates, Cutthroat Island), something that didn't bode well for the Walt Disney Company's $140 million-budgeted film "adaptation" of one of their theme-park rides. But Neptune's mood has apparently improved with the arrival of the new century. He smiled – grinned would be a more appropriate word – on the Gore Verbinski-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, »

As the film opens, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) is breathing what appear to be his dying breaths. Battered and bruised, he stumbles out of the van he just crashed at the docks on Manhattan’s outskirts. In an instant viewers are taken back to a more pleasant time for John, back when he lived a happier life with his lovely wife, the latter eventually succumbing to an unnamed disease. A broken man without his soulmate, a glimmer of positivity arrives at his door in the shape of a puppy his wife seemingly purchased for him in anticipation of the mourning that was looming on the horizon. The bitter sweetness is short loved, shifting over the sheer bitterness when Iosef (Alife Allen), the overly cocky son of Russian mafia lord Viggo (Michael Nyqvist), kills the pup. »

Ray Donovan Season 3 Promo 2. Showtime‘s Ray Donovan: Season 3 TV show trailer 2 star Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, and Katherine Moennig. Ray Donovan: Season 3’s plot synopsis: “Season three finds Ray adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss. Meanwhile, his father Mickey (Jon Voight, in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role), who had narrowly escaped last season’s heist debacle, finds himself charting a similar course to build his own empire.”
This season looks like it will be good. I’ve seen the first episode (review coming soon) and can personally attest to the fact that the first episode is entertaining.

Ray Donovan: Season 3 Teaser Trailer & Poster: ‘California Dreamin’ [Showtime]

Ray Donovan‘s Season 3 trailer has officially arrived, and Katie Holmes’ Paige Finney makes quite the first impression, as it appears that she and Ray will be spending quite a bit of time together this year, with the infamous fixer being tasked with keeping an eye on Paige by her father, Albert Finney (Deadwood‘s Ian McShane). However, I’m not so sure that Albert will end up being happy with just how close Ray and Paige appear to be getting in this trailer, and you’ll see what I mean around the 1:40 mark. Elsewhere in the trailer, Ray attempts to come up with a plan to get his brother Terry out of prison before he’s killed while inside, and even though he may end up surviving, things don’t look so good for Terry from what we’re shown. Also, Ray’s daughter Bridget urges him to come back home, »

Those Donovans, they aren't the establishment types.
The trailer for season 3 of "Ray Donovan" demonstrates that to be true for both the titular Hollywood fixer (Liev Schreiber) and his ex-con dad (Jon Voight), as they both go about their different ways of breaking the rules.
The trailer introduces the new characters played by Ian McShane and Katie Holmes for the major storyline of the season. McShane is Malcolm Finney, a billionaire movie producer who hires Ray to keep an eye on his kids while he retires and settles his affairs. Holmes is Malcolm's daughter, and a tough, cutthroat businesswoman who makes Ray her own deal - one he's mightily tempted by.
The other major storyline of the season features Ray's brother, Terry (Eddie Marsan), in prison. Both Ray and his dad want to get Terry out; the question is, whose tactics will serve Terry better?

Showtime has just released the full trailer for Ray Donovan Season 3, in which the titular Hollywood fixer, played by a reliably pickled Liev Schreiber, takes on a new client in the personage of Ian McShane's Malcolm Finney. The trailer focuses mainly on how Ray's relationship with Finney, including his daughter, Paige (Katie Holmes), leads to him to (yet again) reconsider his choice of profession. That doubt, per usual, becomes twice as potent when he gets involved with his father, Mickey (Jon Voight), who continues his own side of the dirty business at hand. The series seems to be building to another blowout between Ray and Mickey, as Malcolm Finney's line about happy families feels like a direct parallel with what the Donovan family has been weathering for the last two seasons.

Joey Potter, she’s not.
Ray Donovan‘s Season 3 trailer has hit the Interwebs and special guest star Katie Holmes makes a rather saucy first impression as shrewd, chic businesswoman Paige (the daughter of billionaire producer Andrew Finney, played by fellow special guest star Ian McShane).

“Who is this guy?” she dismissively snaps upon meeting Liev Schreiber’s titular fixer. (He’s the guy you’ll be going to first base with in a public rest room at about the 1:40 mark).

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

CEO Jon Feltheimer told Wall Street analysts in February that the sequel was in the works but provided no details. Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk is returning to produce, and Derek Kolstad will once again pen the script.
Lionsgate will be selling foreign markets for the sequel at Cannes next week. The original movie grossed $43 million domestically and $35 million internationally following its October launch.

John Wick, 2014.
Directed by Chad Stahelski.
A former hitman comes out of retirement hell bent on revenge for the men who took everything from him.
After a few dud movies and some time away from the spotlight, Keanu Reeves returns to the action genre with the blistering John Wick. A former hitman for the Russian mob, Wick has turned his life on his days of crime and settled down with his wife (Bridget Moynahan). Unfortunately she dies from cancer and he is left alone except for an adorable Beagle puppy which she picked out for him. All Wick has is his dog and his car, until a boisterous young thug called Iosef takes an interest in his car. Wick is beaten, his car stole and his dog is brutally killed. »

John Wick, 2014.
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.
Since that fateful day when Keanu Reeves fired his gun in the air and yelled “aaaarrrrgggh” he’s become a regular in the action genre. He dipped his toes with Point Break. He experienced box office and pop culture success with Speed, before ending the century as Neo in The Matrix, arguably the most significant action movie of the last 20 years in terms of cult-following, pop culture reference and blue printing future action films (even if The Matrix pilfered from more sources, than films in turn have since aped The Matrix).
Whilst Reeves has often been dismissed as someone lacking in acting range, »

Directors: Chad Stahelski, David Leitch; Screenwriter: Derek Kolstad; Starring: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 15
Overlook the seemingly stale premise of a hitman being lured out of retirement to exact revenge on a gang of nasty buggers. For John Wick is exactly what you'd hope for from a modern action movie - laced with tension, loaded with thrills and not afraid to unleash a few well-timed laughs. It also cleverly harnesses the star persona of its lead Keanu Reeves, without ever resorting to postmodern parody.
The storyline and viewer loyalties are established with a clinical precision that perfectly complements the film's minimalist aesthetic and the unflinching efficiency of Reeves's assassin. We know little of John Wick, but accept he's a Good Guy because he emotes after his wife dies and bonds with an unfathomably cute dog she bought for him. »
Running Time: 101 minutes
Synopsis: John Wick (Reeves) is a retired hit man who finds himself drawn back into the dangerous world of organised crime after the local mob boss’ son Iosef (Allen) breaks into his home and murders his dog, a gift left to him from his recently deceased wife.
In recent weeks we at Thn have been taking a walk down the memory lane of Keanu Reeves’ career in our series Keanu Classics. The series has looked at past victories Bill & Ted, My Own Private Idaho, Point Break, Speed and The Matrix. Since The Matrix though it’s all been a little quiet on the Keanu front. He popped up in Christmas 2013 release 47 Ronin briefly and then vanished again. All that is about to change this »

The comedian, who previously exited the project after reportedly falling out with the remaining members of Queen, will now help to write, produce and direct the movie, as well as taking the lead role.
Music Week reports that the band's manager of 40 years, Jim Beach, announced Baron Cohen's re-appointment at the Artist and Manager Awards 2015 last night (March 26).
The band also expressed concerns that the comedian's involvement would turn the project, based on the late singer's life, into "a joke".
As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series.
