Jaimie Alexander's 'Blindspot' Skills

24 August 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Jaimie Alexander has a hefty amount of work on her plate when it comes to playing the role of Jane Doe in NBC's upcoming fall drama "Blindspot."

As the trailer for the freshman series revealed, Jaimie plays a woman the FBI finds naked, covered in tattoos and zipped up in a duffle bag in Times Square in the series premiere, with no memory of how she got there. Although Jane lacks any knowledge of who she is, her freshly inked tattoos carry clues that the FBI (including Sullivan Stapleton's agent Kurt Weller) begins to use to stop terrorist acts ...

Kursk Submarine Disaster Movie in the Works at Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp

17 August 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp is developing a “Kursk” movie based on the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster, in which 118 Russians perished.

EuropaCorp has hired Danish director Martin Zandvliet to direct “Kursk” from a script by “Saving Private Ryan” screenwriter Robert Rodat, based on Robert Moore’s book “A Time to Die.”

The Kursk sunk during a Russian naval exercise in the Barents Sea after explosions within the submarine. The Russian government refused help from foreign governments for five days before agreeing to aid from the British and Norwegian governments.

The Russian Navy initially asserted that the sinking had been caused by a collision with another vessel but the government eventually admitted that the cause was a torpedo explosion in the submarine.

EuropaCorp is developing “Valerian” with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne starring. Its slate includes “The Transporter Refueled,” the start of a new trilogy in the studio’s action franchise, debuting Sept. »

‘Blindspot’ Creator On How His Tattoo Heroine NBC Series Tested – TCA

13 August 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

NBC’s new thriller series Blindspot tells the story of an enigmatic tattooed woman who is found in a bag in Times Square, her back leading to a number of clues to crimes around the city. The Jane Doe, played by Jaimie Alexander, doesn’t know who she is or where she’s been. Oddly, one of the FBI agents who discovers her (Sullivan Stapleton) has his name stamped on her body. “It’s a bonkers premise,” admitted the series’ creator Martin Gero, who had been yearning to do a… »

Blindspot Ep on Blacklist Parallels, 'Great Resolution' in Season 1

13 August 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There is an easy comparison to be made between NBC’s freshman fall drama Blindspot and the network’s staple crime series The Blacklist — and Blindspot‘s producers are totally Ok with that.

“It certainly does have some similarities with The Blacklist, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing, necessarily,” executive producer Martin Gero said Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We set an extraordinary amount of story from the opening frame of the show. We’ve done a tremendous amount of work to make sure we stay in business for a while. »

‘Blindspot’ Ep Promises ‘Great Resolution by Episode 2, Episode 10’

13 August 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Blindspot” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Martin Gero promised TV critics that their new NBC mystery show won’t be the type that’s all teaser and no scheduled payoff. “I like seasons of television to feel like books in a series of novel,” Gero (pictured above) — the more vocal of two — told reporters Thursday during the series’ Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour. “There is a very clear, beginning and middle and end to this season.” “In Episode 2, you’re going to get a pretty good indication of why it’s Kurt Weller’s (Sullivan Stapleton) name on [Jane Doe’s, »

11 incredible TV shows that no-one is talking about: UnREAL, Rectify, more

7 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

1. Ray Donovan - David Moynihan, Editor

Airs on Sky Atlantic, Wednesdays at 9pm

We're now into the third run of the Liev Schreiber-fronted drama, and the season hasn't dipped one iota since the shocking, deadly twists of its predecessors.

Donovan is a wolfish 'problem fixer' for big-money Hollywood, but beneath the brutish exterior - all guns and grunts - it's his constant struggles with his own family's failings that form the tender heart of the show. Viewers are voyeurs in the ugly reality that lies behind the glitzy mask of La, where money is the driving force for corrupt officials, hollow celebrities and violent gangsters.

Schreiber's muscular and intoxicating performance - along with magnificent scene stealing by Jon Voigt as the larger-than-life rogue grandfather Micky - powers the gripping storylines.

NBC's Blindspot Poster Spills Plenty of Ink on Jaimie Alexander

6 August 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Jaimie Alexander‘s Jane Doe has a lot to fear in NBC’s fall drama Blindspot — but a needle is apparently not one of them.

TVLine can exclusively reveal the official poster for the upcoming series, in which Alexander’s amnesiac emerges from a duffel bag in Times Square, only to have her many tattoos spark a mystery involving FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton, Strike Back).

In the image below, Jane Doe is tasked with “piecing together her past” alongside Weller, but judging by the amount of ink on her body, it won’t be easy. »

15 Awful Films Mission Impossible Actors Want You To Forget

6 August 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Buena Vista

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has surpassed the majority of expectations so far, scoring a sublime 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and nailing the second-best opening weekend in the franchise’s history. Sadly, not every movie can be quite that successful, as the diverse cast of the $2+ billion franchise are doubtless well aware.

Every actor has to start somewhere and every actor takes a blatant paycheck role every now and then, but there’s little denying that these 15 Mission: Impossible actors, from Ethan Hunt himself to that revolving door of love interests, would likely all prefer for these poor efforts to be quietly forgotten.

In some cases the movies are bland enough that they’ve all but evaporated into the ether already, but others are so infamously poor that they’ll endure long after the respective actor isn’t around anymore, a monument to what either greed or desperation can do to just about any entertainer. »

Strike Back: Legacy (Season Five) Ratings

5 August 2015 6:12 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Thanks to some delays in production, it's taken a long time for the new season of Strike Back to make it to our TV screens. We already know that it's the final season of the action series on Cinemax so there's no worry about the action series being cancelled. Was it worth the wait? Will it bring great ratings? Stay tuned.

On the final season of Strike Back, Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) of the elite British intelligence undercover unit Section 20 set out to crack a missing-persons case in Bangkok. They quickly realize that what seems to be a simple kidnapping is actually the first step in a massive terrorist plot with global implications. The rest of the cast includes Robson Green, Michelle Lukes, and Milauna Jackson.

Note: This is considered the fifth season in the UK where series originates. »

'Captain America: Civil War' benefits from new German funding

4 August 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Studio Babelsberg’s co-production of the upcoming Captain America sequel and Steven Quale’s action film The Lake are to benefit from new German funding specifically targeted at VFX studios.

The new opportunities came after the Munich-based regional film fund Fff Bayern extended its dedicated international co-production funding programme to include support for VFX producers based in Bavaria.

According to Ilse Aigner, Bavaria’s Minister for Economics and Media, Energy and Technology, the additional funding would support local companies “in this difficult international competitive market”, bolster Bavaria’s position as a VFX hub and, simultaneously, benefit the overall sector as the measure will bring additional productions to Bavaria.

VFX studio Trixter was awarded $495,000 (€450,000) for the virtual shoot of Captain America: Civil War in order to begin work on the production from the end of August.

The co-production between Marvel Studios’ Vita-Ray-Dutch Productions III and Studio Babelsberg is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, with a cast »

'Strike Back' star Philip Winchester: 'Maybe I'm just stupid enough to enjoy it'

30 July 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tomorrow night at 10, Cinemax premieres the final season of "Strike Back," the rip-roaring buddy action drama about a pair of soldiers working for an elite British special forces unit. In the four seasons of its Cinemax incarnation (one season aired first in England, with an entirely different cast led by Richard Armitage), it's been a pleasure to watch: always smarter, more technically proficient, and just plain better than it ever needed to be. Now it's coming to an end, with a new season that kicks off in Thailand and features guest stars like Michelle Yeoh Dustin Clare, Adrian Paul and Will Yun Lee running into our returning heroes, straight-laced English soldier Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and his carousing American partner Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton). I've seen the first four episodes, and while there are a few narrative hiccups — some of them caused because production was disrupted and delayed by a »

2015 Pilot First Impressions: NBC’s Blindspot

27 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it that will follow are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about CBS’ Supergirl. Next up: NBC’s Blindspot, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 21, at 10 p.m. The Premise: A naked woman, covered head to toe with tattoos, awakens from inside a duffel bag dropped in the middle of Time Square, with no idea of who she is. The only person who seems to have any shot at figuring out the identity of this Jane Doe is FBI Agent Kurt Weller, whose name is tattooed onto the woman’s back, dragging him and his team into this ever-growing mystery. The Cast: Jaimie Alexander (Thor) as Jane Doe, »

Watch: Jaimie Alexander Goes Full Jason Bourne In Trailer For NBC's 'Blindspot'

10 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, if this hyper-charged spot wasn’t just made for Comic-Con, then I don’t know what is. The ominous techno music throbs hard and the stares are steely and humorless in this new action-packed trailer for “Blindspot,” a new series from “Stargate: Atlantis” producer Martin Gero, and by the looks of it, this new hour-long drama may very well share some of that earlier show’s fanboy-friendly DNA. Jamie Alexander, loaded with enough high-caliber weaponry for a dozen David Ayer flicks and covered in “don’t touch me” tattoos, plays our badass heroine Jane Doe. The trailer voiceover promises that Jane comes equipped with a special set of “skills,” making her sound eerily similar to the protagonist of a certain lucrative action franchise. Sullivan Stapleton will play a tough-as-nails fed whose primary task is to decipher the riddle that Jane’s tattoos may pose, and if they point to some larger criminal conspiracy. »
