Defiance, Season 1: Episode 6 – “The Serpent’s Egg”
Directed by Omar Madha
Airs Monday nights at 9 on SyFy
Since Defiance is content to draw a lot of attention to its soundtrack, I am content to talk about that. In “The Serpent’s Egg,” we find out that Alak Tarr is the Defiance DJ, broadcasting from the top of St. Louis’ Gateway Arch. Why the hell not, right? If you’re compiling a list at home, the song that opens this episode is “Ride Captain Ride,” which doesn’t serve as much of a purpose as the closing song that Alak dedicates to Christie (who can apparently see Alak all the way up at the top of the arch, because her vision is amazing!) – “Lovesong” by The Cure. Connecting soundtrack lyrics to the written content of TV episodes might be a tired exercise, but »

Written by Jack Paglen, the screenplay was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films, whose principals include Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen and Regency Boies. Polvino, Marter and Cohen will produce along with David Valdes (“Book of Eli”), Johnson and Kosove. Boies will co-produce.
Pfister was the cinematographer on Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” franchise and, besides Nolan coming on as a producer, has added “Batman” regulars Morgan Freeman and Cillian Murphy to the cast as well. »

The Liability is the tale of a seasoned assassin hoping to retire named Roy (Tim Roth), who gets teamed with a young, enthusiastic driver, Adam (Jack O’Connell) for his next job (as a result of Adam owing a ruthless local crime boss, played by Peter Mullan).
It should be a quick and easy hit, but the two find themselves at a cross-roads as Roy becomes increasingly desperate to escape this life, while Adam is drawn ever more into it, gaining a taste for killing. However, things get even dicier when a beautiful, enigmatic young woman (Talulah Riley) witnesses one of their murders, which by the professional hitman code, suggests that she must also be taken care of. Soon, it becomes clear that her coming into the fold is no accident, complicating their situation considerably.
Boasting strong visuals and a pulsing soundtrack, The Liability promises to be another potent demonstration »
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Jessica Chastain was concluding negotiations to star alongside Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway as the third lead in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy follow-up, Interstellar, Michael Caine has been announced as on board in a supporting role.
It’s hardly a surprise, really, that Nolan has once again called upon the talents of his five-time good luck charm. Having previously directed the Oscar-winning veteran in all three Batman films, The Prestige and Inception, it was just a matter of time before the inevitable was confirmed. Being the first repeat customer to attach themselves to the film, it would be hard to dimiss the notion that Nolan will more than likely cast one or two other familiar faces.

In a surprising turn of events, Michael Caine has joined a Christopher Nolan film. After collaborating with the director on all three films of The Dark Knight trilogy, as well as the mind-bending Inception and the mystical The Prestige, Caine has joined Nolan's sci-fi pic Interstellar. This would be the sixth film on which the two have worked together, more than any of Nolan's other frequent collaborators. Now we'll just have to wait and see if Christian Bale or Cillian Murphy pop up to stay in the hunt. Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Caine will be the latest addition to Interstellar, a sci-fi story conceived by Jonathan Nolan and rewritten by Christopher Nolan. Based on the scientific theory of Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne, Interstellar features “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Caine joins Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway »

Anticipation for ‘the next Christopher Nolan film’ is usually at fever pitch by the time casting news begins to roll in, but fans have even more cause to expect greatness on the back of Nolan’s lastest casting announcement.
Having already put pen to paper with man-of-the-moment Matthew McConaughey and recent Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, Deadline are now reporting that two-time Academy Award-nominee Jessica Chastain is set to join the cast as the film’s third lead.
A wealth of talent though this already is turning out to be, what’s even more interesting is that Nolan is yet to cast one of his ‘regulars’. One can only assume that Michael Caine will feature somewhere, but perhaps he’s been deemed too old for space/time travel? And perhaps Marion Cotillard’s last outing in a Nolan film was just too flat to warrant a recast in his next surefire hit? »

"Downton Abbey" star Lily James has landed the title role in Disney's "Cinderella," the studio announced on Tuesday. Kenneth Branagh is directing the live-action film, which co-stars Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother. Alli Shearmur and Simon Kinberg are producing with David Barron.

She had a supporting role in "Wrath of the Titans" and co-starred alongside Cillian Murphy and Tim Roth in the indie movie "Broken." »

Throughout April, we're counting down to the release of Marvel's Iron Man 3 with our picks for the Greatest Comic Book Movies of All Time; and here it is, our #1 pick...
The Dark Knight, 2008.
Directed by Christopher Nolan.
So, we've reached first place in our countdown of the Greatest Comic Book Movies, and of course our pick for the number one spot is none other than Christopher Nolan's masterful Batman sequel The Dark Knight - which is hardly surprising really, considering our writing team selected it as the greatest film of all-time back in August of last year. While that accolade may be debatable, it would take a brave man (or a huge Marvel fan) to argue against The Dark Knight being the absolute pinnacle of the superhero genre, »

As blockbuster season is now underway, with the release of Iron Man 3 and Oblivion, it's traditional for us to look ahead to what's coming next summer, and to examine what treats are on the horizon. We've thus sliced out the big films, that we know of now, that are being released between April and August 2014 (Noah, due at the end of March, just misses the cut, as does early March Tom Cruise vehicle, All You Need Is Kill).
And while there's some familiarity to them, there are signs it might just be a more interesting summer than you may think....

While it seems like Transcendence seems to be picking up steam, we still know very little about it. Earlier this week we told you that Morgan Freeman had joined the cast that already included Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, and Kate Mara. Three more have now joined the group.
According to Latino Review Cillian Murphy (Inception, Batman: The Dark Knight), Clifton Collins Jr. (Pacific Rim) and Cory Hardrict (Warm Bodies) have all joined the cast for Transcendence, which as far as we know is a movie about a scientist who uploads his brain to a computer that gains consciousness.
These are some heavy hitters, y’all. Whatever this is, it’s going to be awesome.

Hey look, more casting news for Transcendence! The sci-fi film from first time director (and long time cinematographer for Christopher Nolan) Wally Pfister has been on a hiring tear lately, nabbing Morgan Freeman last week and Cillian Murphy just three days ago. Now Variety is reporting that Clifton Collins Jr. (or as I like to call him, the American Robert Carlyle) has joined the film that also stars Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara and Rebecca Hall. It was not stated who Collins would »
