Ellen DeGeneres reveals Finding Dory plot details: Is it anti-SeaWorld?

26 August 2015 3:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ellen DeGeneres has hinted at an anti-SeaWorld message in Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies, the chatshow host, former sitcom star and the voice of Dory herself said: "I think that fish should be in the ocean... It's what this whole sequel is about."

"It's about rehabilitation and putting them back in the ocean," DeGeneres continued. "We have to protect our oceans. Hopefully that discussion starts with this film, because we really need to protect that environment."

DeGeneres's comments come after Seaworld has suffered significant losses in the aftermath of revealing documentary Blackfish.

Pixar president Jim Morris recently revealed that the majority of the film will take place at the Marine Biology Institute of California, a large rehabilitation facility for marine life.

Dory will discover she was born there and freed into the ocean at a young age, which sets her off on a trip to find her parents. »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

24 August 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

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.

Add an irresistible layer of humour (a teenage son being caught humping his own bed being one laugh-out-loud moment »

2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

16 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.

This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

Best Drama Series

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

The Affair Season 2 Teaser Trailer Asks Tough Questions

14 July 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Showtime’s emotionally raw series The Affair entered the TV landscape last year with an interesting premise (episodes split between a man and a woman’s vastly different perspectives on the same events), and found a lot of truth in its portrayal of the devastation of infidelity. The time spent on its murder plot, however -- which I forgot was a part of the show most weeks -- was less successful. [caption id="attachment_368145" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Showtime[/caption] For the uninitiated, Season 1 essentially dealt with two marriages that fell apart and reformed. Noah (Dominic West) and Helen (Maura Tierney) and their kids took a vacation in Montauk, where Noah happened to meet Alison (Ruth Wilson), who was struggling in her marriage to Cole (Joshua Jackson) after the loss of their son. The two formed a strong and immediate connection, and then struggled through trying to keep away from each other while also being unshakable drawn together. »

Showtime’s The Affair gets a new trailer for season 2

14 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Showtime has debuted a brand new look at the second season of the hit drama The Affair, which we have for you below…

The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire), Ruth Wilson (Luther), Maura Tierney (E.R.) and Joshua Jackson (Dawson’s Creek), with season two exploring “the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together.”

In a change to the first season, the second will see the story told from four perspectives rather than the original two, which will reveal “four distinct truths.”

Wilson plays Alison, a young woman attempting to move on from tragedy and build a lasting relationship while contending with the judgment of others and her own self-doubt. Her lover Noah (West) is a burgeoning writer trying to balance the temptations of success, the family he left behind, and the woman he loves. Noah’s »

Showtime releases the first trailer for the second season of ‘The Affair’

14 July 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Among one of the more acclaimed new shows last season was the Showtime relationship drama The Affair. Created by the In Treatment team of Hagai Levi and Sarah Treem, the series’ first season went on to win a Golden Globe for best Drama, with lead actress Ruth Wilson taking home another award on the same night for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television series.

The show was soon renewed for a second season, which is now poised to return in the fall, with a major change. While the structure of the first season meant that the story of the unfolding events was told from two perspectives, the new season will expand the viewpoints to tell the story from four different perspectives, adding in Helen and Cole’s viewpoints to the series. Ruth Wilson is poised to return once again, joined by Dominic West, Maura Tierney, and Joshua Jackson, »

'The Affair' Season 2 Trailer Is Double the Sexy Trouble

14 July 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

How did we get here

We took the slow way

Do you love me

What am I supposed to say

Those haunting, heart-tugging lyrics from the song "Walls" by the band Stars plays over the new trailer for Showtime's Golden Globe-winning "The Affair." The exchange between the male and female singer captures the mood of the teaser, which shows us that Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) continue their affair as their respective marriages crumble.

Watch the trailer.

This season will double down on the drama, literally, as the show expands from two points of view to four. We'll see more from Noah's ex Helen (Maura Tierney) and Alison's ex Cole (Joshua Jackson).

As Noah and Alison navigate their relationship, they also have to contend with the police's ongoing investigation of Scott Lockhart's death. Noah claims he's innocent, but if he is, who did kill Scott?

"The Affair" season 2 premieres this fall. »

The Affair Season-Two Trailer: Even More Rashomontauk!

13 July 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The dual perspective structure of the first season of The Affair is going to get even more fractured. In the first season we toggled between Alison (Ruth Wilson) and Noah's (Dominic West) points of view as they carried on with their sultry affair. But surely their partners, Cole (Joshua Jackson) and Helen (Maura Tierney), have something to say about that. After all, there are four sides to every story. To further this point, the poster: »

Showtime’s ‘The Affair’ Teases More Stories, Sorrow and Sex in Season 2 Trailer

13 July 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Things aren’t going happily ever after for Noah Solloway and Alison Bailey in season two of “The Affair.”

The teaser for the second year of the Showtime drama was released Monday and seems to imply that the two leads, played by Dominic West and Ruth Wilson, are still be traumatized by season one’s arresting cliffhanger (Spoiler the arrest of Noah on suspicion of killing his daughter’s much older paramour).

But they’re not the only ones dealing with the fallout. While last year chronicled the narrative through the eyes of Noah and Alison, this season will add in the impact of their choices as seen from the perspective of Noah and Alison’s scorned spouses, Helen (Maura Tierney) and Cole (Joshua Jackson), including the damage the breakup had on Helen and Noah’s children.

And then there’s still the matter of who actually committed that murder. »

“At a certain point, fate takes over a story.” Here is our first look at Season 2 of Golden Globe-winning drama The Affair, Showtime’s steamy and subtle saga of an illicit Hamptons romance and its fallout.

'The Affair' season 2 trailer promises 'more than two sides to every story'

13 July 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Though "The Affair" between Dominic West and Ruth Wilson's characters was the title subject of Showtime's newest drama series, the show was often at its most vibrant last fall when it was focusing on the spouses (played by Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson) and other family members whose lives were being irrevocably altered by it. So it's exciting to learn that season 2 — debuting this fall — will, according to Showtime, "be told separately from four different perspectives, revealing four distinct truths."  I had some issues with "The Affair" by the end of season 1, but I'll absolutely be watching in the fall, and look forward to seeing how Helen and Cole see what's going on with their soon to be ex-spouses. Here's the season 2 trailer and poster: »

Emmy Nominations: Do Big Finales Skew Balance Between Old and New?

13 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmys forever seem to be grappling with a tension that, in award circles, is virtually unique to television — one that, thanks to a spate of big series finales, seems more sharply focused than usual this year. In the simplest terms, the choice boils down to paying tribute to the old, or ushering in the new?

While the Grammys, Oscars or Tonys are presented with a new list of candidates every year, the Emmys feature contenders that are frequently nominated — and sometimes win — year after year. Witness “Modern Family’s” gaudy five-year stranglehold on the best comedy category, or “The Daily Show” and “The Amazing Race’s” decade-long runs in their fields.

While the TV Academy is ostensibly charged with honoring the best programs from any particular year, it’s difficult not to take past performance and context into account. And that can cloud and complicate the decision-making process, especially »
