20 May 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

As previously reported, TV Line delivered their latest spoiler chat session and dished out some new intel for the upcoming season 5 of "Person Of Interest" in regards to their shorter 13 episode order. They talked with CBS head, Nina Tassler, and she said it may not necessarily mean the show is ending afterwards. In their spoiler chat report, here's what they had to say, when asked if the shorter season meant the end: "Not necessarily…? At least according to CBS boss Nina Tassler, who weighed in on the show’s future not long after Season 5 got halved. “Showrunners Jonah Nolan and Greg Plageman came in and pitched really terrific ideas for the new season. So, we have to see,” she said. “It’s always been a very smart, creative show; we don’t know yet whether it’s going to be the end or not. If it is, we’ll have a great ending. »

CBS’s 2015-16 Schedule: Supergirl and Limitless In, Person Of Interest Out

13 May 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Following yesterday's ABC deluge of trailers and fall schedule announcement, CBS has set their line-up for the 2015-2016 Fall primetime season. Unlike ABC, however, who have been simply crushing it in key demographics, CBS is doing some switching around with the introduction of a handful of new programs. One thing that sticks out is the general lack of comedies in CBS's schedule, with only Thursday nights really providing a home for a few chuckles amongst all the grisly murders and death talk that populate a great deal of their dramatic programming, though the introduction of Supergirl and supernatural thriller Limitless into the schedule may offer just the hint of variety that has been escaping CBS for so very long. [caption id="attachment_421559" align="alignright" width="309"] Image via CBS[/caption] Indeed, CBS is going as far to put Supergirl into the post-football Monday-night 8 p.m. slot, meaning it will directly face off with Fox's Gotham, when the »

‘Person of Interest’ Finale Blasts Into Cloudy Future (Spoilers)

5 May 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Person of Interest” aired what could be its final episode Tuesday – the program’s renewal prospects remain uncertain heading into CBS’ fall upfront presentation – and in some respects, the series offers a cautionary tale. Not just about artificial intelligence and the surveillance state, which provided the show’s cerebral foundation, but also the challenges in allowing what at its heart was initially a crime procedural, on a network overflowing with them, to morph into a more serialized drama, until the program practically choked on its own dense mythology.

Conceived largely as a two-character piece – Batman’s billions and brains (Michael Emerson) and brawn (Jim Caviezel) split into two guys – the series drew depth and strength from its expanded roster of players, including the since-departed Taraji P. Henson and Kevin Chapman as two cops who gradually joined the operation. Then there was the cold-hearted mercenary Shaw (Sarah Shahi) and the villain-turned-uncomfortable-teammate »

Person of Interest EPs Talk Finale's 'Insidious' Corrections, the 'Terrifying Dystopia' (Hopefully) to Come

5 May 2015 8:24 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If push comes to shove, The Machine, as mighty and as omniscient as She is, can be squeezed into a piece of carry-on luggage.

That remarkable fact proved handy at the conclusion of Person of Interest‘s Season 4 finale, as Harold & Co. were led to an electrical substation in Brooklyn, where The Machine — after hiding Herself in the national’s electrical grid all this time — was chased into a corner by Samaritan. Using a briefcase full of memory cards and several bags of ice, Harold managed to download a “strand” of The Machine’s DNA, while Root and Reese (barely »

Person of Interest Post Mortem: The Scoop on That Twisty Comeback

15 April 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS’ Person of Interest this Tuesday night found yet another way to noodle with its narrative, by surprising us as well as John Reese with the truth about his heart-to-heart with onetime associate Detective Joss Carter.

The set-up for the episode had John digging up a cold case that Carter (played by original cast member-turned-Empire star Taraji P. Henson) was unable to solve, and pursuing it to its bitter end.

Person of Interest Ep Reveals the How and Why of Taraji P. Henson's Return

14 April 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It was never a matter of if Taraji P. Henson would resurface on CBS’ Person of Interest, but when. And how. And why.

After all, Detective Joss Carter was tragically killed in the November 2013 episode “The Crossing,” gunned down by an Hr goon at the close of a highly arduous, seemingly victorious crucible. She died in the arms of John Reese, with whom she shared an intimate bond — or, as intimate as things ever get between any of the stone-cold good guys on the high-stakes drama.

Exclusive Interview With Jonathan Nolan On Interstellar

31 March 2015 5:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jonathan Nolan is one of the most in-demand screenwriters in Hollywood today. His first four screenplays, which he co-wrote with brother Christopher Nolan, are among the top #100 most-loved films according to the Internet Movie Database (The Prestige, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and, now, Interstellar). You could even count a fifth title in that grouping if you include his story credit for Memento, for which he received an Oscar nomination.

Still, Nolan is not just a potent creative collaborator of one of the world’s biggest directors. He has branched off to become a creative force on the small screen, too. He created the hit CBS drama Person of Interest, which draws in around 10 million viewers a week, and is also hard at work on Westworld, an HBO sci-fi drama set to air later this year based on Michael Crichton’s novel. With an ensemble cast including Anthony Hopkins, »

Book Review: Interstellar – Beyond Time And Space

27 March 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Titan Books have been producing quality ‘The Making Of…’ coffee-table books for a while and now they’ve utterly upped their game with Mark Cotta Vaz’s Interstellar: Beyond Time and Space. The book looks deep inside Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi exploration with boundless access to filmmakers, set designers, cast and crew to create an amazing insight in the process.

Interstellar as a movie is both complex and accessible, so it’s important for a title like this to give you as much as the film does. If any aspect of Nolan’s work and delving into his ideas and processes interests you, then you’re already in the right place to quench that creative thirst.

Spanning over 153 A4-size pages, there’s no holding back with information alongside deconstruction of the story, sets and real reasons why the cast and crew wanted to be involved and make it look as perfect as possible. »

Interstellar’s Original Ending Was Really, Really Depressing

21 March 2015 10:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Contrary to popular belief, Christopher Nolan was not the first Nolan involved with Interstellar. Before the Dark Knight helmer came aboard, Steven Spielberg was mulling taking the reins and would have worked from a script by Jonathan Nolan. Of course, that didn’t happen, and viewers ended up with a visually jaw-dropping and narratively ambitious (if not entirely successful) space epic that explored universal themes of time, love and the human drive to survive. The Christopher Nolan touch made the pic soar in some ways and fall short in others, but now it has come out that if Jonathan Nolan had his way, Interstellar would have been a very, very different film altogether.

Promoting the movie’s upcoming Blu-Ray release, the younger Nolan recently let slip that his original ending for Interstellar would have divided public opinion even more than the final one.

Spoiler Alert!

Attention science nerds: This just-revealed original ending to Interstellar is going to make you very happy. For everyone else, well, it might make you really sad. In honor of the movie's upcoming DVD release, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan (who wrote the first version of the script before brother Christopher took over) talked to a packed house at Nasa's Jet Propulsion Labratory about the making of the film, and he revealed some never-before-heard details. According to Nerdist, Christopher Nolan made some big changes to the movie's ending before it began filming—and the original was, well, way more depressing.

'Interstellar' Original Ending Was Dark and Simple

20 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year's blockbuster Interstellar performed quite well at the box office, taking in over $672 million worldwide. But the sprawling and ambitious sci-fi epic had many fans scratching their heads when it came to the ending, which was so complex we even broke it down at length back in November. Screenwriter Jonathan Nolan and producer/science adviser Kip Thorne attended a media event at Caltech's Jet Propulsion Lab to promote the release on Blu-ray and DVD, arriving from Paramount on March 31, where Jonathan Nolan revealed that the original ending was "much more straight-forward." If you haven't seen Interstellar yet, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

At the end of Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey's Cooper launches himself into the black hole known as Gargantua, in hopes of sending the data compiled on the signularity of gravity back to Earth. He ends up in "the 5th dimension, »
