When “Supernatural” premiered on The WB on September 13, 2005, few could have imagined that the show would not only outlive the network that birthed it, but also go on to survive the exits of three showrunners and two network presidents to become the longest-running sci-fi series in U.S. television history. It also has the distinction of being the only show from The WB’s lineup that’s still on the air, following the network’s transition into The CW in 2006. Stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have also remained with the series throughout its run, long after most leading men would’ve thrown in the towel (see: Chris Meloni, Michael Weatherly, David Caruso, William Petersen et al).
“As long as ratings stay stable, and they want to do the show, and I’m still in the chair, I’m going to be their biggest supporter to continue,” CW president Mark Pedowitz says. “I »

While Tom Hanks was never the first choice for Dan Brown’s heroic Harvard symbology professor (William Peterson all the way!!!), there’s no denying he and director Ron Howard have done a good job with previous Brown adaptions, The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, book order be damned. Their latest team-up, Inferno, is coming our way later this year, and a new trailer has come our way, giving us greta taste of what to expect. If the the first teaser trailer didn’t clue you in, this is a much different beast than the first two movies, coming off as much more action orientated this time round as Langdon must halt the spread of a deal plague. It may be a bit of a shock to the system for fan so fetch series, but does promise some great escapist entertainment. Released: 14th October (Irl/U.K)/ 28th October (U. »

While a lot of people tend to reference The Silence Of The Lambs as their introduction to all things Hannibal Lecter, I grew up adoring the hell out of Michael Mann’s 1986 thriller Manhunter. Brian Cox did one hell of a job as the notorious cannibal, with both William Petersen (To Live And Die In La) and Tom Noonan (Heat, Late Phases) aiding in making the film an absolute classic, one of the few perfect thrillers.
Thanks to the wonderful gang at Scream Factory, it looks like we’re getting an Epic Collector’s Edition Bluray release of the film, one that is Very loaded with brand new special features and two version of the film. Will you fright fanatics be picking this one up? God knows I’ll be.
