12 Days of Bingeing? December Gets Busy With TV Series Premieres

26 November 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Television’s Christmas vacation has been canceled.

The month of December used to be consigned to reruns, hoary holiday specials, movies and classic TV marathons. Network execs were loathe to launch any major priorities in the month because of the conventional wisdom that potential viewers were too distracted by holiday-related pursuits.

But a quick look at the premiere schedule for the final four weeks of the year underscores how busy the frame has become for new and returning series premieres.

NBC has its highest-profile new comedy of the season, the Eva Longoria starrer “Telenovela,” getting a showcase preview with two episodes airing Dec. 7 behind the penultimate episode of “The Voice’s” winter season. “Superstore,” the America Ferrera-Ben Feldman workplace comedy that has generated solid advance buzz, opens for business with two episodes airing on Nov. 30, also behind “The Voice.”

Superstore” and “Telenovela” will settle into their regular Monday 8 p. »

24 November 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Ah, American Thanksgiving, a time for reflection, expressions of gratitude, and two inept home burglars. Jason Kupfer's short Invaders has played at more than 100 festivals over the past year (including Fantastic Fest, FrightFest, Morbido, and Beyond Fest), and rightly so. It's a slam dunk of a film, a great joke played by two very funny actors (Ricky Wayne and Jordan Woods-Robinson) and directed with great joy, with no holding back on the blood.It's been selected for Eli Roth's Crypt TV and Short of the Week. And now, it's available for your viewing pleasure as well. Happy Turkey Day! (Though you might not want to be eating when you watch it)....

As You “Like” It: Subkoff Finds the Sound and the Shrillness in Social Media

Actress Tara Subkoff makes her directorial debut with #Horror, a film whose very title relies on the visual significance of a symbol. However, merely saying the title aloud robs it of certain legitimacy, marking it always and forever as part of a certain lingo from a particularly vapid era (not that teenagers from previous generations weren’t equally obtuse, but since everything is now continually recorded from the banality of their lives, the stream of evidence won’t ever dissipate). While Subkoff’s idea is sometimes interesting, apparently based on an actual instance of social media bullying which mutated into murder, it’s as equally ungainly and unpleasant in its depiction of these vacuous creatures of privilege as they descend into a night of madness.

A wave of English language J-horror remakes in the early 2000s signified, »

E! Cancels 'The Soup' After 22 Years

18 November 2015 1:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The end of an era is upon us. Shortly after shuttering its Master Control operations department in Los Angeles, E! has now canceled their longest running program. The Soup, a comedy series that skewers pop culture, is going to air its series finale on December 18th. This will bring the show to a close after spending 22 years on the air.

Current host Joel McHale will help celebrate the legacy he is leaving behind when the finale episode airs the same day that Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters. The long-standing cable staple was first launched on E! in 1991, but it was originally called Talk Soup. This early iteration of the program focused solely on clips from the various talk shows airing at that time. When it was revamped as The Soup in 2004, the show expanded its reach to all pop culture programing and also focused on viral »

First Trailer For Crime Drama Exposed Has Keanu Reeves Going Through The Motions

18 November 2015 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Keanu Reeves had been gradually piecing together the beginning of a comeback with 2013’s fantasy film 47 Ronin, it was last year’s hardboiled John Wick that irrefutably fired the actor back into the spotlight. It’s due to get a sequel, too, lending Reeves an opportunity to branch out in the interim. But watching the debut trailer for Gee Malik Linton’s crime drama Exposed really makes us long for the stylish and satisfying thrill ride that is John Wick.

Stepping into the shoes of a dead-beat cop, Reeves toplines the supernatural-tinged noir as a detective in the search for answers. Upon the mysterious death of his long-time partner, our grizzled lead sets his crosshairs on a young Latino woman who claims to experience strange supernatural visions.

Providing a new angle to the case, she’ll be played by Ana de Armas, paving the way for a Knock Knock reunion with Reeves. »

Tara Wood, co-director of 21 Years: Richard Linklater, has begun production on an authorised feature-length documentary exploring the career of acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, Variety has revealed.

“Quentin is the most revolutionary, distinctive director of our time,” states Wood. “There is no shortage of stories from his collaborators about what it takes to get his visionary style to the screen. It has been an enlightening process both personally and professionally.”

As with the Richard Linklater documentary, 21 Years: Quentin Tarantino will “draw upon the idea that the first 21 years of work defines the career of an artist” and is set to feature interviews with a host of Tarantino collaborators including Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.

Quentin Tarantino Is Getting The Official Documentary Treatment

10 November 2015 1:54 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last year, "21 Years: Richard Linklater" dropped into cinemas, and as you might've surmised from the title, it explores the filmmaker's career across two decades plus one extra year. There doesn't seem to be a specific reason for 21 years to be chosen as the marker, but it seems as good as point as any to reflect on a director's work, and now Quentin Tarantino is getting similar treatment.

‘The Stranger’ Review

Stars: Nicolás DuránCristobal Tapia MonttAriel Levy, Luis Ginecco, Lorenza Izzo, Alessandra Guerzoni | Written and Directed by Guillermo Amoedo

“Blood will tear us apart.”

Eli Roth means many things to many people. Some see him as one of the saviours of modern horror. Some see him as a detriment to the genre. For me personally, I think he’s a fantastic director. Cabin Fever knew exactly what it was and had horrible things happening to purposefully unlikable characters. Hostel played a part in bringing shock and gore to the unprepared mainstream audience and Hostel 2 was in a lot of ways a love letter to Italian exploitation of the 70′s and 80′s. That being said, 2015 hasn’t been a good year for him in terms of directorial output. I was so excited for both The Green Inferno and Knock Knock, but found both films to be Roth at his worst. »

Quentin Tarantino Getting Authorized Feature-Length Documentary

10 November 2015 5:46 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s been some specials and making of documentaries on his productions, but we have yet to get a definitive documentary on the career of Quentin Tarantino. While this is mostly due to the director still making his films — his latest, The Hateful Eight, arrives on Christmas Day in 70mm — a new documentary will take a look at a specific period in his career.

Production has already started on 21 Years: Quentin Tarantino, which takes a look at — you guessed it — the first 21 years of his films, from 1992’s Reservoir Dogs to 2013’s Django Unchained. Directed by Tara Wood, she seemingly takes the same approach as her last co-directing effort, 21 Years: Richard Linklater.

According to Variety, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington will all be interviewed for the project. “Quentin is the most revolutionary, »
