We caught up with writer Damon Lindelof to talk about the film, which is out now on the home formats.
Q: How did this project come about?
A: I was having lunch with Sean Bailey, president of motion picture production for Disney, and we were talking about the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. It was an opportunity to take something that is familiar to people and make something original out of it. So Pirates of the Caribbean has existed as a ride forever, but Captain Jack Sparrow didn’t exist until the movies came along. Sean was saying that it had been challenging to do that for other things in the, theme parks and was there anything that I thought was an interesting opportunity for a movie.
A Cause for Entertainment will take place this Sunday, September 13th from 4:00pm–8:00pm Pdt at The Next Door Lounge in Hollywood, CA. We have official details on the event below, and to learn more or take part in the online auction, visit:
From event leader Jessica Sherman: "Breast Cancer is one of the ugliest diseases in the world today, and with heartbreaking statistics like these, I find it hard not to want to give back:
- A woman has a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Every 3 minutes, there is a
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.
“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”
“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy
Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.
Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically
Tonight’s Bates Motel had a whopper of a twist in the final moments: Dylan’s father is…his mother’s brother! Yep, according to Norma (Vera Farmiga), her bro Caleb (Kenny Johnson) is Dylan’s dad. This will likely not end well so we talked to Motel Ep Carlton Cuse about this major development.
EW: Tonight’s big reveal was that Caleb is the father of Dylan. Did you all plan that from the start of the series?
Carlton Cuse: Like most good creative ideas they evolve and they grow richer over time. Back when I first discussed

Recently Flickering Myth had the privilege to speak with Person of Interest’s Kevin Chapman aka Detective Lionel Fusco. As I eagerly await the second season of Person of Interest, the sound of Lionel’s… Sorry Kevin’s voice on the other end of the phone line was a source of comfort that took me back to happier days, when each week was adorned with a new episode, in which Reese would shoot someone in the kneecap. Oh, happy days.
Kevin spoke to us about discovering acting late in life, working with Clint Eastwood and Sean Penn, the award winning television series Brotherhood, the lessons learned behind the camera as well as and of course talking Lionel Fusco and Person of Interest…
