Following the songs of American Horror Story: Freak Show and the casting of Lady Gaga, many viewers might expect more musical numbers to take place on FX's American Horror Story: Hotel this fall, but in a recent interview, showrunner Ryan Murphy shared that Hotel will not include any musical numbers. Murphy also discussed bringing Denis O'Hare on board and much more.
"No. People, keep saying to me, “What numbers are they singing, what numbers are they singing,” and I say there will be no numbers... I’m excited about that and I think that’s why Gaga was excited about it; it’s not something that she’s ever done before. It’s a pure acting part. I think people expect that »

'Yesterday' movie: Leleti Khumalo and Lihle Mvelase. 'Yesterday' movie review: Fantastic central performance in South African AIDS drama To date, nowhere has the AIDS pandemic been felt more strongly than in Sub-Saharan Africa, home to approximately 10 percent of the world's population and two-thirds of the planet's 30-35 million AIDS cases. In the past thirty years, it is estimated that more than 20 million Sub-Saharan Africans have died from complications of the disease.* Even today, drug cocktails that are relatively accessible in other parts of the globe are still beyond the means of the vast majority of Africans. Writer-director Darrell Roodt's South African drama Yesterday is set in this catastrophic scenario. The film depicts the effects of AIDS in the life of a young Zulu woman who contracts HIV from her husband. Although Roodt's narrative maintains its focus on the plight of one particular individual, the (for non-Zulus) quirkily named Yesterday represents millions of other women, »

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's The Town That Dreaded Sundown provides some classic scares, so it's fitting that this new one-sheet has employed a classic poster artist. Graham Humphreys, justly lauded for his Nightmare On Elm Street, Evil Dead and FrightFest work, has composed this beautiful old-school image for the film. We've also got some work-in-progress shots.Nominally a remake of Charles B. Pierce's 1976 slasher, Gomez-Rejon's film is actually a bit more interesting than that. The new version takes place in a world where the previous film exists and everyone has seen it. Gomez-Rejon wanted to explore the notion of a town that suffered a real-life horror and then came to be defined by a movie version. You can read his thoughts in more detail in Empire's interview here.The Town That Dreaded Sundown stars Addison Timlin, Veronica Cartwright, Gary Cole, Anthony Anderson, the late Edward Herrmann, Ed Lauter and Denis O'Hare. »

A quick review of tonight's "Banshee" coming up just as soon as I grab that hood ornament... "Banshee" is a show that doesn't particularly lend itself to weekly analysis, but "A Fixer of Sorts" was the show operating at such peak efficiency that it warrants mention. First, the Burton/Nola fight was insane, both for the graphic brutality of it — each of them suffering injuries that would have killed or at least crippled them in a more grounded series — and just the way it was shot, particularly the sequence when the camera appears to do a full orbit around the car while they're fighting inside it. I don't know if that was really a single take or if there's a digital cheat in there somewhere, but it looked amazing. And yet even as those two are tearing each other to shreds, there's still that unexpected thoughtfulness that makes "Banshee" more than just well-executed pulp exploitation. »

Late last week, I posted the first set of highlights from the "Banshee" screening and fan Q&A we held in Los Angeles. Now it's time for a few more pieces of insight and humor from stars Antony Starr and Ivana Milicevic and creator Jonathan Tropper. In this video, we touch on where Tropper tries to draw the line between pulp and gratuity, particularly when it comes to nudity on the channel once (and perhaps still) known as Skinemax, plus the origins of two of the show's most colorful, memorable characters in Kai Proctor and Job. (On the latter, the video doesn't include an earlier exchange where I refer to Job as an "explosives expert," and both Tropper and Starr object, on the grounds that he tends to use too much C4 most of the time — one of several reasons why Starr thinks Hood and his crew are pretty lousy criminals. »
