The Loft was given the August 29, 2014, release date back in August 2013, but now the crime thriller starring Karl Urban, James Marsden, Rhona Mitra, Wentworth Miller and Eric Stonestreet has been pulled, with no word yet from the studio where it will land. In its place, Universal slotted As Above/So Below, a psychological thriller from Legendary and John Erick and Drew Dowdle. That pic, directed by John Erick, revolves around a team of explorers who venture into the Paris catacombs and uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. It had been scheduled for an August […] »
Wentworth Miller first entered our radar with guest shots on Popular and Buffy, and moved on to the mini-series Dinotopia, but it was his breakout role as the tattooed Michael Scofield in Fox’s hit Prison Break that really began our obsession.
We were delighted when he publicly came out last summer, and his speech at the Hrc was stunning and powerful.
Today is his 42nd birthday, and we look forward to what he has to offer next (in addition to acting, he’s also an accomplished screenwriter). Enjoy this gallery of some of the highlights of his career.
Happy Birthday, Wentworth!

Universal Pictures has not a single blockbuster movie on its 2014 slate. So why is it posting some of its most impressive numbers for years?
Once upon a time, Universal Pictures had its slate for 2014 pretty much sorted. It was to base it around two massive blockbuster sequels, a pair of tentpole pictures that were of sufficient size for others studios to steer clear of them. And that would then give the studio the latitude to place a few other, cheaper bets around the board.
But then, last year, there was a change of plan. Jurassic Park 4 became Jurassic World, and more worryingly for Universal, it bounced from the summer of 2014 to the summer of 2015. That meant that Universal's blockbuster strategy hung on Fast & Furious 7, a sequel that the studio had fasttracked - at the cost of director Justin Lin - so that it followed Fast & Furious 6 by a mere year. »
From edge-of-your-seat drama with the return of 24 to smoke-machines, key changes and singing Russian twins in the Eurovision Song Contest, this weekend there truly is something for everyone to watch.
So let us, along with our friends at Now TV, pick out five of the best shows to check out.
1. 24: Live Another Day
Where: Sky 1 on Now TV.
When: Series 1-8 box set and 24: Live Another Day episodes available now.
Jack Bauer's returned from a four-year hiatus in 24: Live Another Day and he's more bad-ass than ever. The comeback series of 24 has been winning rave reviews for its "crash-bang thrills and rug-pulling twists", which are up there with the Us show's very best moments. Kiefer Sutherland hasn't lost any of his sizzling presence on screen and the new series, based in London, is an addictive, white-knuckle ride. If you haven't caught the first episode yet, it's available on Now TV now, »

It’s time for Roy to show Oliver what he can do. Bronze Tiger returns to wreak havoc. And Laurel can’t get the monkey off her back.
I loved this week’s episode of Arrow. Even if some of the plot points were questionable, this was the sort of episode that makes this show so damned addicting. Full of high drama and unexpected twists and “Oh sh**!” moments. It totally wipes away the lingering stench of “Shrapnel.”
We kick off with a prison break that, sadly, has nothing to do with hottie Wentworth Miller. Some fool attempted to rob a precinct across the street from a police station. Now, this isn’t a complaint, really, but one would hope that one of the officers present would take that oddly gigantic screw up and add it to the unnerving calm of the prisoner and the fact that the guy is »

Last year I made a list of my 50 most anticipated movies of 2013, but this year I struggled putting together a list of 40. The kind of movies I used to anticipate don't get me brimming with excitement as much as they saturate the market and we can fully expect to see one nearly every weekend and this year it starts early with Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit on January 17. So no need to anticipate them, they'll be here soon enough, but I've already discussed all this, no need to trod the same path over again. My list would have also been easier to make had I not already seen six films you may want to add to your list of most anticipated: Dom Hemingway (April 4) Read My Review Enemy (March 14) Read My Review Ernest & Celestine (March 14) Only Lovers Left Alive (April 11) Read My Review Under the Skin (April 4) Read My Review Venus »

With 2013 coming to an end in just a few short hours, it's that time of year where the the team here at Flickering Myth to reveal our picks for the very best cinematic offerings of the past twelve months.
As usual, the writing team here have put together individual lists of their personal favourites, which we've used to compile our overall selection for the Top Ten Movies of 2013. However, unlike previous years, we've made a slight change this time around; with most of our writers being UK based, we've always used UK release dates as the basis for our list, meaning that films from the previous calendar year have often made the cut.
This is something we've debated at length, and this time around our we've decided to go with UK release dates once again, but omitting 2012 movies from the final top ten (although you can see how that list »

Now that my Overrated and Underrated picks have been released (which many of you have strong opinions about), it's time for me to unveil my 10 favorite films of the year. As I have said before, 2013 has been an incredible year at the movies, with fantastic big-budget blockbusters (Iron Man 3 and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), superb drams (Philomena, Mud), comedies (The Way, Way Back, Drinking Buddies) and everything in between (Spring Breakers). As much as I loved all of those films mentioned above, you will not find them on my Top 10, which can only mean that the quality of movies released this year was rather special, since superb cinematic experiences like these didn't make the cut. Of course, I didn't see Every movie released in 2013 (clickHere to check out every movie I saw this year), but this list represents the films that blew me away, in more ways than one. »
