25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

13 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

Shonda Rhimes' 'The Catch,' Biblical 'Of Kings an Prophets' lead ABC orders

7 May 2015 6:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

And finally ABC is in the game!  The only network not to pick up a new series (and still the only network not to formally renew a single old series) jumped into the pre-upfronts excitement in a major way on Thursday afternoon, picking up six new dramas, several of which sound rather ambitious. Before going into depth, the basics: On Thursday (May 7) afternoon, ABC ordered the Biblical epic "Of Kings and Prophets" and the Shonda Rhimes-produced "The Catch," as well as "Wicked City" (formerly "L.A. Crime"), "The Family" (formerly Untitled Jenna Bans), "Quantico" and the Untitled Pate & Fishburne Project (formerly "Boom"). ABC no doubt has plenty more new series pickups to do ahead of the network's Tuesday, May 12 upfront presentation. Let's get to the details, because some of these new shows sound pretty interesting actually... *** "Of Kings and Prophets" comes from creators Adam Cooper & Bill Collage and it is »

ABC Orders Six New Dramas Including Shondaland’s ‘The Catch’

7 May 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC has given the series greenlight to a half-dozen drama projects, ranging from a Biblical epic to an FBI 9/11 conspiracy vehicle to a long-con thriller from Shonda RhimesShondaland shop. All six of the series hail from ABC Studios or the ABC Signature production unit.

The orders reinforce ABC’s strategy of loading up on dramas with an eye toward some shows with shorter-episode orders to help refresh the schedule and avoid repeats of new and returning series. The emphasis on ABC-produced projects makes it clear that the Alphabet is looking for maximum control of the digital windowing strategies on its shows, an increasingly important factor for broadcasting networks.

The six dramas getting the nod for ABC’s 2015-16 slate so far:

The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »

'Point Break' Remake First Pictures, Bracey and Ramirez are Utah and Bodhi

22 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez).

Point Break remake: first pictures, official synopsis

21 April 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez star in the new Point Break movie. And here are the first pics to prove it...

Like it or not - and 'not' appears to be the consensus thus far - the remake of Point Break is edging ever closer. The movie is set for release in cinemas later this year, with Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez leading the cast. Ericson Core is directing this time, and also in the ensemble are Ray Winstone, Teresa Palmer and Delroy Lindo.

The plan with Point Break is to have it in cinemas this December, and Warner Bros has released the first two images from the movie. Inevitably, these don't tell you much more than the fact that extreme sports remain involved. They're also a reminder that Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze aren't in it.

Here are the pics...
