Watch: 'Halt and Catch Fire' Premiere Brings to Life the Chaos That Created the Internet

27 March 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Game On, On Screen: 5 TV Shows With Video Game Crossovers AMC has announced the premiere date season two premiere of "Halt and Catch Fire," which will pick up in early 1985 as Cameron (Mackenzie Davis) and Donna's (Kerry Bishé) try to manage the chaos of their start-up, born from that most revolutionary of ideas -- computers that are able to talk to each other, all around the world.  In the above clip, Donna makes her way through the chaos of Mutiny in one long masterful tracking shot that reveals the tension of the new office, where fights break out over issues like the rendering of colors in a backgammon game. It should be interesting to see how Cameron and Donna's company evolves from its initial messiness. "Halt and Catch Fire" also stars Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy and Toby Huss. The series returns to AMC for a second season Sunday, »

Yesterday marked exactly one year to the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with Warner Bros. celebrating by giving us our first look at a bald Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and now EW (via Cbm) has released an official version of the Jason Momoa Aquaman image, minus the ‘Unite the Seven’ tagline…

On a side note, we’ve heard a whisper today that the first trailer for Batman v Superman will be with us on April 4th. This is unconfirmed, and there may be nothing to it so please don’t take it as gospel. Our money is on the first trailer coming with Mad Max: Fury Road. But you never know…

26 March 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC is crossing its fingers for the reboot of of drama “Halt and Catch Fire” on May 31, two weeks after the finale of “Mad Men.”

The show, set in the mid-1980s amid the rise of the PC business in Texas, struggled to find an audience last year in its 10-episode run. But AMC brass had faith in the premise, series creators Chris Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers and showrunner Jonathan Lisco, who acknowledge that changes are in store for season two.

“We’re going to drill down even deeper into these characters we’ve created, to give you all the emotional and psychological depth you’ve come to expect from ‘Halt and Catch Fire,’ while at the same time evolving the show to be brasher and even more addictive,” said Lisco.

Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis and Kerry Bishe topline “Halt.” James Cromwell has a recurring role in the upcoming season. »

25 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly dropped this new, first promo pic of actor Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" super hero/action flick. As you can see, he's definitely bald and intense-looking. Director, Zack Snyder, offered up a few words about this version of Lex Luthor. He told them: "He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure. Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.” The movie stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, »

Here’s Your First Look At Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

25 March 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the superhero trifecta are taking up all the headlines ahead of the release of Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of JusticeWarner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated flick boasts an array of colorful characters and cameos, not least in the form of Jesse Eisenberg’s villainous Lex Luthor.

First Look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice

25 March 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve seen Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and now it’s on to Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. EW has our very first look at Eisenberg without his signature curly locks and charming demeanor. This time around, he’s balder and more menacing looking than we’ve ever seen him. Here’s what director Zack Snyder had to say about Eisenberg’s rendition of the character: “He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure, other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course.” Snyder also added the following: “Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can »

First look at Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

25 March 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though we know it’s setting the scene for the larger DC cinematic universe and have a good idea who’ll be in it, there isn’t that much information around Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Up until today, we didn’t even know if Lex Luthor would have hair or not. But now we do!

Just released by Entertainment Weekly, here’s the first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor:

He definitely look intense, plus he’s got previous experience from The Social Network playing a billionaire who isn’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

Eisenberg is set to debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is also rumoured to be a part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad in 2016.

First Picture of 'Batman v Superman's Lex Luthor

25 March 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first picture of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor from Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice has just premiered. Much was made over whether or not Eisenberg would have hair or not and I think this pretty much answers that question. Snyder was quoted by Entertainment Weekly, who premiered the pic, saying, "He's not any of the Lexes that you've seen, that's for sure, other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course. Our Lex is disarming and he's not fake. He says what he believes and he says what's on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it's all there." To go along with that, digital artist Scott Johnson posted his own color-corrected version on Twitter. This isn't official, but might give you a better idea »

David Gordon Green Talks Globetrotting Next Film ‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ And Taking Actors “Safely Into Dangerous Places”

23 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Quietly turning in two back-to-back Texas gems in the form of “Joe” and “Manglehorn” (the latter of which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and hits theatres soon via IFC Films), director David Gordon Green seems to have struck gold with a home turf advantage —during production of “Manglehorn,” he could ride his bike to nearly every location. But he’s set a challenge for himself with follow-up “Our Brand is Crisis,” a political comedy-drama starring Sandra Bullock, Scoot McNairy and Billy Bob Thornton. “Bolivia, Puerto Rico, New Orleans, Colorado, and Los Angeles,” Green told us at SXSW of his globetrotting filming locations, going on to hint further at what the film has in store. Based on the 2005 documentary of the same name by Rachel Boynton, Green’s film focuses on questionable political strategies used by U.S. consultancy company Greenberg Carville Shrum during on the 2002 Bolivian political elections. »

Gal Gadot responds to criticism of her Wonder Woman casting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

22 March 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Robot Underdog, Gal Gadot has been speaking about her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in next year’s DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and more specifically, the criticism levied towards her casting as the Amazon Princess.

“They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. hen I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amused me. The true amazons had one boob so it won’t bother them in their archery. So it’s not going to be like real amazons. We always try to make everyone happy but we can’t… After they asked me here, In Israel, if I have eating disorders and why am I so skinny, they said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I »

Lamb | 2015 SXSW Film Festival Review

Strangers With Cabins : Partridge’s Uncomfortable Sophomore Film

Returning behind the camera for the first time since his 2000 debut indie film Interstate 84, actor Ross Partridge reaches uncomfortable and unpredictable heights with Lamb, an adaptation of a novel by Bonnie Nadzam. Exploring a socially inappropriate relationship between a middle aged man and a pre-teen female barely on the horizon of adolescence, Ross reaches a perfect emotional pitch in-between punctuations of queasy discomfort. With impressive finesse, Partridge, who adapted the screenplay, maintains the sense of dense characterization sometimes lost in cinematic translations dealing with material as fragile as this.

Having just buried his father and in the midst of a divorce, Chicago businessman David Lamb (Partridge) finds himself adrift in an increasing tangle of little white lies and untruths that have forced him into a stagnant personal ennui. He’s having a tepid affair with co-worker, Linny (Jess Weixler), though »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Early Look at 43 Movies Vying for Best Picture

9 March 2015 8:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As always, March is too early to get any kind of firm grasp on what will or won't be an Oscar contender come the end of the year, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to speculate. Last year, only two of the nine films I predicted out of the gates actually ended up receiving Best Picture nominations at the 2015 Oscars -- Boyhood and The Grand Budapest Hotel -- which goes to show just how much we know in advance. In fact, looking at the films I had on the outside looking in, only Best Picture winner Birdman was listed. But hey, at least I had three of the top contenders in the early year conversation, that's something... rightc When it comes to this year, I feel even less certain than I did last year. I'm not sure that's saying a whole lot since only two of the 43 films on »
