Paul Feig’s Spy is now in theaters. As I’ve said many times before, I think Spy is great and is an extremely funny movie that’s definitely worth your time and money. The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Peter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. For more on Spy, read Perri’s review or watch the trailers. At the L.A. press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statham. They »

Aired December 20th, 2002 on Fox
Welcome to Sound on Sight’s summer look back at Firefly, the beloved yet short-lived series that aired on Fox during the 2002-2003 TV season. Every Thursday, we will revisit an episode at a time of the show’s one and only season, in the order that they were meant to be seen. The correct sequence is accurately reflected on most, if not all, streaming services that currently have the show, but for those watching via other methods, the accurate order can be found here. Now, without further ado, time to spend some time with the most entertaining group of grifters in The ‘Verse.
Of all the things “Serenity” does well (from which there are many to choose), its successful building of an entire world in less than two hours, complete with fleshed out characters and relationships, »

I wonder how many excellent movies we’ve been cheated out of by Melissa McCarthy’s commitment to Mike & Molly. I understand the appeal of a regular paycheck and the success of the show has led to McCarty being the highest paid actress in Hollywood but Spy is such a good movie and couldn’t she be doing two or three of these per year instead of one and a season of bad television? Spy is the funniest movie I’ve seen in years and it isn’t close. I laughed so often and so hard I’m sure that I laughed over important dialogue and even other jokes. It’s the kind of movie that can shift the paradigm of movie comedy in the way the Judd Apatow movies of the early 2000s did and it can even be the movie you throw in your idiot friend’s face »

Deadpool is the film we never thought we'd see. 20th Century Fox kept the X-Men spinoff in limbo for years, and after his less than auspicious on-screen debut (more on that below), things didn't look good for Marvel Comics' 'Merc with a Mouth'.
Deadpool will be released on February 12, 2016.
X-Men: Origins will be swept under the carpet
As we mentioned, part of the problem with bringing Deadpool to the big screen was the royal mess Fox made of his first appearance. Reynolds appeared as mercenary Wade Wilson - that's Deadpool to you - in 2009's Hugh Jackman-starring X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the project that spectacularly failed to launch a solo movie spinoff series for Marvel's mighty mutants.
Out of the various criticisms levelled against the film, one that kept coming »
Take another look @ leaked set images, plus more footage, from the now wrapped Vancouver-lensed production of Marvel's "Deadpool", starring Ryan Reynolds, showing a knife fight involving the superhero 'Merc With A Mouth':

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Unlike any spy you've never seen before. Now playing in theaters everywhere is Paul Feig's new comedy Spy, yet another spoof on the spy movie genre. This time Melissa McCarthy takes the lead, going out in the field on a job as an agent when the men aren't up to the task. The cast includes Jason Statham & Jude Law as spies, plus Miranda Hart, Rose Byrne, Julian Miller and Morena Baccarin. So how is this action comedy? Better than expected? Or a complete mess? McCarthy at her best or worst? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on Paul Feig's Spy.

Melissa McCarthy plays an unlikely agent in Spy, but the movie is likely to be a hit. The action comedy, which re-teams the actress with Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig, stars McCarthy as an unassuming CIA analyst named Susan Cooper. She volunteers for duty after a field agent (Jude Law) goes missing and another agent's (Jason Statham) identity is compromised. The 20th Century Fox flick, out Friday, also stars Morena Baccarin, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Miranda Hart and Allison Janney. 50 Cent makes a cameo. McCarthy is a box office star, but Spy faces some serious competition this weekend, as Warner Bros. Entourage and Focus Features' Insidious: Chapter 3 are debuting. Here's »

The stars of new action comedy “Spy” showed off their smoothest moves on Monday at the film’s New York City premiere. Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham and Jude Law led the cast at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square, as they were joined on the red carpet by director Paul Feig. Also featuring “Neighbors” star Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (as himself), “Homeland” actress Morena Baccarin and Nargis Fakhri Lia, “Spy” follows a CIA analyst who goes undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer and prevent diabolical global disaster.

Here she plays Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst kept as far away from the field as humanly possible (well, at first). She's behind a computer screen acting as the eyes and ears for Jude Law's suave, Bond-like Bradley Fine. He's directed through various death-defying missions by Susan, and their playful back-and-forth hints at a long and sturdy friendship that she wants to blossom into something more.
When one of their operations goes bad, the CIA is thrown into crisis forcing Susan to go undercover in a bid to prevent a worldwide catastrophe. The Brit trio of Miranda Hart, »
Back in February Daniel Cudmore (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Apocalypse) revealed that the role of Colossus has been recast in the upcoming spin-off movie Deadpool, with a mystery actor then seen on set portraying the character of Piotr Raspution via motion-capture.
Well, thanks to cast member Gina Carano, we now know who plays the metal-skinned mutant in Deadpool, with the actress revealing via Twitter that Andre Tricoteux (Once Upon a Time, Seventh Son) was the man in the mo-cap suit.
You're the best #Colossus a person could ask for Andre. »

The cast list for Gotham‘s second season continues to grow, as TVLine is reporting that Chris Chalk – who plays Wayne Enterprises employee and future Batman ally Lucius Fox – has been granted the upgraded status of series regular.
Chalk had a small role as Fox at the end of Gotham‘s first year and will make a great addition to the main cast, as there’s plenty of character history to be mined; Fox is just a junior exec of Wayne Enterprises at the moment, but will one day ascend to the role of CEO and aid Bruce Wayne in his crime fighting efforts. After all, he’s already helped Bruce discover what will become the future Batcave and is expected to become an even more important part of the young billionaire’s life next season.
Executive producer John Stephens teased the character’s expanded role by saying the following: »
- James Garcia
The site reports that Lucius is set to become “another person who’s going to help Bruce on his journey to find out what happened to his parents and what his parents were doing, and also his journey to manhood and Batman-hood.”
Chalk is the third recurring guest star from the first season to be promoted to series regular following Morena Baccarin (Dr. Leslie Thompkins) and Nicholas D’Agosto (Harvey Dent).

I’ve been following Deadpool’s development for so long that part of me still has trouble believing it exists, and exists with the team we wanted: Ryan Reynolds, director Tim Miller, and from a screenplay by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Filming has now wrapped on Deadpool, and Reynolds has sent out a tweet to mark the occasion with this image: [caption id="attachment_465463" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Image via Ryan Reynolds[/caption] It would be very Deadpool to put “Brooks Was Here…So was Deadpool”, but I’m willing to meet the character halfway on his graffiti. Reynolds has been sharing photos throughout filming, and I’ll be curious to see if he keeps checking in with fans, or if he’ll be too busy with other projects. Usually, I don’t care for being inundated with marketing, but I’m willing to make an exception for Deadpool. Deadpool opens February 12, 2016, and »

The story follows former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool.
