This year, the Marvel TV franchise on ABC was joined by Marvel’s Agent Carter, a new series featuring one of the Marvel Universe’s greatest and most beloved characters, Agent Peggy Carter (played by the phenomenal Hayley Atwell). The series tells the story of what happened to her after the events of Captain America: The First Avengers when she lost – until 70 years later – the love of her life, Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans), after his great sacrifice and became an agent for the S.S.R. In Agent Carter‘s first season, Peggy acquired new allies, and one of them was Edwin Jarvis (played by James D’Arcy), who is the faithful butler of Howard Stark (played by Dominic Cooper) and is now a major part of Peggy’s journey as we head into Season 2. TVOvermind was fortunate enough to participate in the Agent Carter Press Room »

There’s not a huge amount of info available about her character, but Entertainment Weekly has broken the news that Constance Zimmer (House Of Cards, Entourage, UnREAL, Grey’s Anatomy) will take villain duties in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3.
We’re told that Zimmer will appear in the season 3 premiere episode, which picks up ‘a few months after the events of the finale.’ We’ve also heard that she’s ‘more than a match’ for Coulson.
It’s no secret at this stage that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 will take inspirations from the Secret Warriors comics, and – if we had to guess – will probably echo the beats of Captain America: Civil War when that comes out in May (just in time for the S.H.I.E.L.D. finale). Perhaps, then, Zimmer will »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate. Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition." It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next." Notable films that will have premiered »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

'Ant-Man': Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. 'Ant-Man' box office below expectations: Lowest Marvel Cinematic Universe domestic debut Starring Paul Rudd as a bug-like (sizewise) action hero, Ant-Man was expected to open with $60-$65 million from 3,856 U.S. and Canada locations this past weekend, July 17-19, '15. That didn't happen. A mere three days ago, Variety enthused that Ant-Man was "marching to a solid $65 million weekend at the U.S. box office." But instead of a $65 million domestic debut like those of Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man bowed with a considerably more modest $57.22 million (down from the studio's $58.04 million Sunday estimate), including Thursday evening screenings. This latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry averaged a highly disappointing – especially for an McU entry with loads of steeper-priced 3D and IMAX / Pfl screenings – $14,841 per location. But really, why "highly disappointing"? Trailing 'The Incredible Hulk' Even taking into account the fact »

Marvel movies are full of little Easter eggs here and there, and Ant-Man starts with a pretty big one: an opening sequence with a young Hank Pym (Michael Douglas, looking exactly like he did circa 1987's Wall Street) and three people. They're in a fight over the particles he's created, and he threatens to walk away from the company. Two out of those three people should look familiar to you, as they've appeared in previous movies. Here's a rundown of who all three are and why they're important in the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. Peggy Carter Yes, that's Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter all caked in aging makeup. We've seen Peggy as a young woman alongside Captain America and as a 92-year-old woman during an emotional scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so it's interesting to see where she is in between those two instances. She helps found the Strategic Homeland Intervention, »
It's the concluding part of the two-part drama adapted from Sadie Jones's novel of the same name.
Wait it's Sunday again? That can only mean one thing - another episode of the human and synth drama.
After last week's events, Joe (Tom Goodman-Hill) is in exile and Laura (Katherine Parkinson) decides to come clean with her children, with consequences for Anita (Gemma Chan). Meanwhile, a betrayal leads to the ultimate sacrifice.
Marvel's Agent Carter: Fox UK, 9pm
The second episode has Peggy back doing what she does best, being a spy.
Michael Pena is an actor whose career I've been intently following for the past 10 years. After popping up in small but impressive roles in back-to-back Best Picture winners Million Dollar Baby and Crash, and in a wonderful arc on my favorite TV show ever, The Shield, the actor started coming into his own with solid supporting roles in Shooter, Lions for Lambs, Observe and Report and American Hustle. After his fantastic scene-stealing performance in Marvel's Ant-Man (check out my full Ant-Man review), the actor is primed for a huge career leap.
The actor portrays Luis, a longtime friend and criminal cohort of Scott Lang, who gives him a place to crash after his release from prison. Luis also sets up the heist that essentially introduces him to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), setting him on a path to become the Ant-Man. When Scott is tasked with pulling off an improbable heist, »
Ahead of its UK release this September, Entertainment One has debuted a trailer for Miss You Already, which sees Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) directing a cast that includes Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette and Dominic Cooper. Check out the trailer below…

That is until Milly is hit with the life changing news that she has breast cancer and needs Jess’s support more than ever.

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...
The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.
So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.
Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Finding the Legendary booth on the floor of the main exhibition hall at Comic-Con is always fairly easy, because they don't do things by half-measures. This year, all you had to do was look for Ogrim, the giant Orc wielding the massive Doomhammer, and that's exactly where I found Duncan Jones, director of next June's "Warcraft." Google Cardboard struck a deal with Legendary to help them create a very nice viewer for the new Legendary Vr app that was being demoed at the booth. I got to run through all three of the experiences that they've put together, one of which was clearly based directly on last year's full-sized Jaeger Pilot exhibit. They've also created a "Crimson Peak" experience which is one long walk down a haunted hallway in the bones of the home that serves as the focus of Guillermo Del Toro's new film. Finally, they've created a »
