just now | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

In a surprising move, AMC has renewed Halt and Catch Fire for a second season. The new episodes will air next summer but there's no word yet on how many there will be

Halt and Catch Fire takes place in the 1980s and follows the team at Cardiff Electric as they try to take on Ibm in the home computer market. The cast includes Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Mackenzie Davis, Kerry Bishé, Toby Huss, and David Wilson Barnes.

The series had a poor start back in June, drawing 1.19 million viewers with a 0.3 demo rating. The numbers got worse as the season progressed, hitting a series low with 574,000 viewers in the finale. Its ratings were worse than even the dismally rated Low Winter Sun but AMC apparently wants to give it another show next summer.

Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel in new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set photo

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week some photos from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice arrived online, which included our first look at Scoot McNairy, Holly Hunter and Tao Okamoto, as well as a glimpse of Henry Cavill’s Superman, albeit with his costume under wraps. Well, now MTV has posted another set photo, giving us a much better look at Cavill’s Man of Steel

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on May 6th 2016, with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me) as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons (The Borgias) as Alfred Pennyworth and »

"Batman v Superman" Heads To Morocco

3 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Moroccan film producer Nassim Abassi has posted a tweet confirmed that production on Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will take place in Morocco starting September 1st.

It was previously confirmed in a press release that an African filming location would be used for the project and Morocco was rumored earlier, this would seem to confirm the story.

The real surprise in the tweet though is the length - Abassi says production will run for just over three months through until December which makes for a quite lengthy stay and potentially a big chunk of the final film.

Which stars will be involved in that leg of the shoot is unclear at this point, though the primary unit is scheduled for a bunch of shooting in Chicago this Fall which would indicate Snyder and the primary cast will probably only be in Africa for a few weeks. »

Is Scoot McNairy The Flash in Batman V Superman?

4 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

As of right now there is no official information on who Scoot McNairy (Halt and Catch Fire, Argo) is playing in Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Some new photos from the set of the film have surfaced, though, that hint at the actor possibly playing Barry Allen, a.k.a. The Flash.

CosmicBookNews came across to set photos of McNairy sporting some green chroma-key colored knee-high socks. This is the kind of stuff they use when they are going to add in some special effects. 

Basically there is some speculation now that the green socks could be to later add some kind of some speed effects to McNairy’s legs. We do know that The Flash does play a part in the film, we just don't know who is playing him. If you connect the dots, this could be him, but again, there's no confirmation. This »

‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Renewed For Season 2

5 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In a somewhat surprising move, AMC just renewed the show Halt and Catch Fire. The first season averaged 1.3 million viewers over its first 10 episodes, which isn’t great, but it hit a specific adult demographic that the channel liked. And I’m sure the fact its male stars Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy are both becoming major […]

AMC Renews "Halt and Catch Fire"

5 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

AMC has renewed is freshman drama "Halt and Catch Fire" for a second season. The 1980s Texas-set computer drama stars Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy and explores the personal computing boom.

The announcement comes as a surprise considering that, despite strong reviews and an aggressive online campaign, the series opened to just 1.2 million total viewers. By seasons end it averaged around 1.2 million viewers an episode.

Comparatively the network's 2013 crime drama "Low Winter Sun" had an average of 1.8 million viewers per episode, and that show was canceled after the first season. The network's other new drama for this Summer, "Turn," managed a more impressive 2 million viewers per episode average.

In a statement, AMC president Charlie Collier says the network is giving the show time to grow: "This is a show about invention, experimentation and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground - themes that really resonate with us as »

AMC renews 'Halt and Catch Fire' for season 2

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Those summer cable drama renewals just keep on coming, folks. A day after Sundance ordered a third season of "Rectify" and FX ordered a second of "The Strain," AMC belatedly announced a second season order for "Halt and Catch Fire." The drama set at the dawn of the personal computing era had drawn very low ratings, and mixed early reviews. But it got better as it went along, particularly after it started shifting the spotlight off of Lee Pace's Don Draper clone Joe MacMillan and shining it on the central ensemble, and as it got more into the struggle to balance creativity and commerce in the computer field. The season finale felt in many ways like creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers knew the show was ending, but it did set up a promising new direction for this second season (which will debut next summer): frustrated coder Cameron »

Halt And Catch Fire Renewed For Season 2

6 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

AMC announced today that drama Halt and Catch Fire, about the rise of the PC era in the 1980s, had been renewed for a second season, to air next summer.

Though the series was never a breakout hit like AMC’s The Walking Dead or Breaking Bad, it attracted a small, loyal audience throughout its first season, which was likely enough for AMC to justify giving the critically acclaimed show more time to tell its story.

Earlier this year, it was unclear whether either of AMC’s two freshman series - Halt and Catch Fire and Revolutionary War spy drama Turn – would earn pick-ups, seeing as neither broke out in a big way. Now, however, both have assured futures on the network.

Said Charlie Collier, AMC president:

“This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground – themes that really resonate with us »

New Clues Regarding McNairy's Role in 'Batman v Superman'

6 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since Scoot McNairy joined the cast of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, rumors have swirled about who he could be playing. We know he had  pivotal role in Ben Affleck's Argo, and so it seemed likely that Affleck and screenwriter Chris Terrio (who also wrote that film) had something interesting in mind for the actor. Right away, people wanted to say he was Nightwing. Others thought he'd perhaps just be some sort of secondary human villain, like a lackey for Lex Luthor. 

But now we can confirm one thing: It's definitely a role that requires CGI effects.

A few spy pics from the Detroit set have revealed McNairy walking around with his suit pants rolled up, exposing the kind of green tights that are used for CGI enhancement/replacement. Some have been quick to say that this means he's playing The Flash. BadAss Digest's sources claim that »

'Halt and Catch Fire' Renewed at AMC

6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

AMC has renewed Halt and Catch Fire for a second season. The 1980s computer drama is scheduled to return next summer. Halt and Catch Fire — starring Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy and created by Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers, with Jonathan Lisco as showrunner — explores the personal computing boom. The renewal was a bit unexpected as the series opened to rave reviews, but just 1.2 million total viewers after an aggressive online and on-demand sampling effort that saw the series become the first show to premiere on Tumblr. Halt's 1.2 million viewers was 900,000

AMC Renews ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ for Season 2

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC has ordered a second season of drama “Halt and Catch Fire,” to air next summer.

“Halt” had been on the fence for a pickup as total viewership was modest. But AMC execs said the period drama set in the world of the 1980s computer biz  had enough of a hard-core following coupled with a generally strong reception from critics to warrant a renewal. Lee Pace, Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishe and Mackenzie Davis star.

“This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground – themes that really resonate with us as a network and attracted a passionate audience,” said AMC prexy Charlie Collier.  “We have a history of demonstrating patience through the early seasons of new shows, betting on talent and building audience over time. We see that opportunity here and look forward to a second season of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ from »

The series stars Lee Pace as Joe, tortured entrepreneur driving hardware mastermind Gordon (Scoot McNairy) and wunderkind developer Cameron (Mackenzie Davis) to develop an entirely new kind of personal computer the Silicon Prairie of 1980s Texas.

Is Scoot McNairy The Flash in Dawn of Justice?

8 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Another day, another big movie rumor hits the streets.  Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently filming and set pics have been hitting left and right.  Since we're a good ways into filming now, some of the pictures are turning up some juicy items.  Yesterday one such picture turned up that raised a lot of questions and may have revealed Scoot McNairy's role in the film.  Come inside to check out the image and hear our thoughts!

When Scoot McNairy was officially cast in Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. didn't give us any hint as to which character he'd be playing.  Plenty of speculation was thrown around, but the bottomline was, no one knew.  Now, we at least have a clue.  Yesterday McNairy was spotted on the set (filming scenes with Henry Cavill):

Is Argo’s Scoot McNairy Playing The Flash in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice?

8 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Scoot McNairy’s role in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is shrouded in secrecy, but a new set photo could provide a clue as to who exactly the Monsters star will be playing in the Zack Snyder helmed movie.

McNairy joining the cast came as a pleasant surprise and was likely on the recommendation of Argo director Ben Affleck (who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman in this movie) and writer Chris Terrio who was brought on board to rewrite David Goyer’s initial draft shortly after Affleck joined the ambitious project.

As you can see from the set photo below, the actor is wearing CGI socks which will obviously lead to some changes being made to his legs in post-production. There have been rumours of The Flash making an appearance not in costume, so it could be that we see McNairy head into action in the suit you see above »

Photo: Is Scoot McNairy Playing The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

10 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We know that Scoot McNairy (Argo) will appear in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," but it was never officially revealed what role he'll be playing. Today, we have a photo of the actor walking around the set, giving us a tiny clue. The photo features McNairy wearing a suit with a green outfit underneath. That outfit will later be turned into whatever director Zack Snyder wants in post-production. The common guess is that he'll be playing The Flash, but that doesn't seem likely since Flash has human legs. In the past, it was rumored that he'll be playing Batman's sidekick Robin. But once again, no need for Robin's suit to be created in post-production. Question: Any guesses which character McNairy may be playing? Photo: (click to enlarge) »

The Rover, 2014.

Directed by David Michôd.

Starring Guy Pearce, Robert PattinsonScoot McNairy and Tawanda Manyimo.

Synopsis:

10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves’ brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.

The title card tells us we’re in ‘Australia, 10 years after the collapse’. Guy Pearce’s Eric sits in his car, a nondescript BMW, as the wind outside howls through the open desert landscape. The world outside the car is desolate, dry, and dust clings to the window like a reminder that it will never go away. This, we will learn, is Eric’s sanctuary and safe place and there aren’t many of them.

When Eric leaves his car and gets a drink, another car loses control, crashes, and is stuck. The three men inside have guns, »

Rumour: Scoot McNairy to play The Flash in Batman v. Superman?

14 hours ago | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

The Batman v. Superman rumour mill is moving into overdrive this morning, with speculation building over the identity of Scoot McNairy’s character in the forthcoming film. Batman News has published a new on-set image of the actor, in which he can be seen sporting cut-off trousers and green-screen fabric around his lower legs. Clearly there is going to be some CGI at play here, and given the positioning of the material, it has been suggested that this is evidence that McNairy will be playing none other than speed-merchant, The Flash. ...
