Review: The ‘Game of Thrones’ ‘BastardBowl’ Brings About A Whole New World Order

19 June 2016 8:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last Week’S Review: ‘Game of Thrones’ Keeps The Violence Off Screen As Battles Build

Every week this season, Indiewire will be bringing you a unique collection of viewpoints on “Game of Thrones,” as it is a show that elicits a unique sort of reactions. Our writers are well-versed in the world of the show and the culture surrounding it, and we look forward to seeing how their opinions fare in the cutthroat world of Westeros… Sorry, that is, the cutthroat world of television criticism.

What Happened This Week?

If you were thinking that this week’s episode would be nothing but epic battles, you were technically incorrect. That said, there were two important battlefield clashes in “The Battle of Bastards.”

First, Daenerys fought off slaver forces with both dragons and diplomacy, per the advice of Tyrion — because no one tells Daenerys that her reign is over. In fact, her reign has just begun, »

Donald Trump Turns 70: 'I Don't Want to Hear About It,' Says Birthday Boy Who Would Be Oldest U.S. President to Be Sworn In

14 June 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump rings in his 70th birthday on Tuesday, an occasion he will celebrate on the campaign trail with an evening rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. If his campaign succeeds, he will be the oldest person ever to be elected president in U.S. history. Ronald Reagan was inaugurated at age 69, just a few weeks shy of his 70th birthday. Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who will turn 69 on Oct. 26, would tie with Reagan as the oldest person ever to take office. She is however, the youngest of the last three candidates standing in the 2016 race. Her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders »

Today is Peter Cushing’s 103rd Birthday! Here Are His Ten Best Roles

26 May 2016 5:44 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Michael Haffner, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Peter Cushing, born on this day in 1913, was one of the most respected and important actors in the horror and fantasy film genres. To his many fans, the British star, who died in 1994, was known as ‘The Gentle Man of Horror’ and is recognized for his work with Hammer Films which began in the late 1950’s, but he had numerous memorable roles outside of Hammer. A topnotch actor who was able to deliver superb performances on a consistent basis, Peter Cushing also had range.  He could play both the hero and the villain with ease.

Here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are Peter Cushing’s ten best roles:

Dr. Maitland

During the 1960s, Amicus Studios had a knack for borrowing from the pool of Hammer Studios actors and filmmakers to make their own Hammer-inspired films.  While »

Black Talks Predator, Long Kiss & Lethal Sequels

21 May 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Shane Black's "The Nice Guys" in cinemas this weekend, the filmmaker has been doing some more interviews about the film and has spoken about other projects of his - not just "The Predator" refresh but also some old films he penned treatments or scripts for that didn't take off. Here's the basics by film during his extended sessions with Happy Sad Confused Podcast:

The Predator

Black's not a fan of the way Fox was "just churning them out" in regards to the "Predator" and "Alien" sequels in the 1990s and early 2000s, as a result he hopes to get back to a big exciting event film with the new one:

"I think ideally we are endeavoring to get back to what [producers] Joel Silver and John Davis managed to pull off with [director] John McTiernan. Now that said, I don't wanna make it huge. It's not about 50 predators [running] over the mountain. »

New Girl Finale Recap: Leaving on a Jet Plane — Plus: Grade the Wedding!

10 May 2016 6:29 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We have a feeling onetime “Weekend Update” correspondent Stefon would have liked Tuesday’s New Girl finale — because, man, it had everything.

A wedding. An engagement. A break-up. An exchange of “I love you”s that was rudely interrupted by food poisoning. A conga line in the aisle of an airplane. Winston in the buff.

Over the course of two episodes, the Fox comedy brought each one of its central relationships into new, somewhat terrifying territory, before wrapping things up on a bittersweet note (thanks to an ill-timed hora). Herewith are the highlights from Tuesday’s two-part Season 5 sendoff:

Saluting geek TV's "Zeppo" episodes

Buffy, Doctor Who, Star Trek and more have all devoted episodes to members of their supporting cast...

Over an extended run, some television shows give off the impression that all life in their universe revolves around a small number of characters, but if they run long enough, writers and producers will invariably have to look elsewhere every once in a whle. Maybe on another day to every other episode, when the forces of evil rally and all seems lost, the good guys are... otherwise occupied, leaving someone else to pick up the slack.

As a dramatic convention in pop culture, foregrounding minor characters dates at least as far back as Tom Stoppard's 1966 play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, which takes place “in the wings” of Shakespeare's Hamlet as the two minor characters have little comprehension of the tragic events going on concurrently. But over the years, geek »

Vivendi’s Big Moves To Get Back In TV Game

4 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One of the most intriguing players to watch at MipTV will be France’s own Vivendi. The conglom has had a busy year assembling new pieces in its disparate portfolio to become a bigger force in the booming global market for TV, film and digital content.

Vivendi last year helped orchestrate the merger of Euro TV heavyweights Banijay Group and Zodiak, emerging with a 26.2% stake in the combined venture.

At the Studiocanal production arm of Vivendi’s pay TV group Canal Plus, veteran producer Rola Bauer was tapped in January to oversee a stepped-up effort to sell shows and strike co-productions in the U.S. market. Bauer’s appointment came a week after Vivendi’s wholly owned Universal Music Group hired two seasoned producers, David Blackman and Scott Landis, to spearhead development of film, TV and theatrical projects.

‘How to Get Away With Murder’ Season Finale: Time to Rethink the Format? (Spoilers)

17 March 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Is it too late to turn “How to Get Away With Murder” into a limited series, one of those shows that hits the reset button – while keeping star Viola Davis – in each new season? Because the ABC drama’s frenetic second-season finale — which circled all the way back to the show’s beginnings, while ending (predictably) with yet another murder — makes a pretty strong case for it.

Not only did the finale work in the aforementioned flourishes (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), but it found time to have Davis’ character, powerhouse attorney Annalise Keating, take refuge from the craziness by visiting her family in Memphis. Although that provided some helpful background about the character – and offered the great Cicely Tyson an extended guest shot as her mother – it resulted in an extremely hurried finish, as Annalise magically returned and resolved this season’s year-long murder mystery, before »

Exclusive Q&A with Ultimate Night Of The Living Dead Writer Gabe Yocum

23 February 2016 3:04 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Disc jockey Samantha is surrounded by zombies, but rather than panic, she’s found a way to co-exist with her drooling companions in Remote #3, one of ten new Ultimate Night of the Living Dead comic book issues hitting shelves tomorrow from Double Take. For our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with Remote writer Gabe Yocum, who discussed Samantha’s versatility, the unique nature of radio station zombies, and more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer questions for us, Gabe. What has it been like to take the reigns on the writing duties for Remote? Was it easy to continue the story with the same style and rhythm?

Gabe Yocum: My pleasure. Remote has been a joy to pick up and run with. This is my first comic and I’ve had lots of help from our editorial staff. It’s definitely not easy, but there is an »

First Look Promo For Supernatural Season 11, Episode 13: “Love Hurts”

4 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thanks to The CW network, we have our first look at next week’s brand new episode of Supernatural, which is titled “Love Hurts.” The series has put its own bloody spin on Valentine’s Day in the past, as the horror genre is no stranger to doing, so it should be interesting to see what they bring to the table this time around.

From the footage given, we can see that Sam and Dean Winchester are investigating a case in which people have had their hearts ripped out, causing them to first suspect werewolves. As it turns out, next week’s brand of terror is actually a product of an ancient curse that marks people for death once they have been kissed. That sounds like the worst possible case of cooties to me!

As longtime fans of the show are aware, the writers often pluck things from established folklore and urban legends, »

2.05pm GMT

Huge thanks to Isy and to everyone who submitted questions. Until next time!

Thanks for all your questions, especially the one that suggests I could have a role in Batman. If you need touring and book information, go to isysuttie.com. I'm off to eat some Thai green chicken curry.

SalvadorDarley asks:

If you got a dozen top lads from Matlock and I rounded up a dozen “faces” from Darley Dale, who’d win the resultant “off”?

I guess it would have to take place on Bakewell Road, halfway between Darley Dale and Matlock. And I'm going to say Matlock would win, because it's the best place in the universe. »

Harrison Ford Dethrones Samuel L. Jackson as U.S. Box Office King

11 January 2016 7:13 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

All hail, Han Solo! Thanks to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Harrison Ford is now the highest-grossing actor in U.S. box office history. And the guy's 73! Talk about getting better with age. This is one of those lists that rewards longevity, since the more blockbusters you make, the more you rise on the list.

If you check out the actor rankings at Box Office Mojo, it's still pretty close at the top, but Harrison is now sitting comfortably at No. 1, with a current (and rising) gross of $4.74 billion. Samuel L. Jackson (age 67) -- whose work in the "Star Wars" prequels, "Jurassic Park," and "The Avengers" films launched him to the top of the list -- was pushed down to No. 2 with a gross of $4.63 billion. However, Sam definitely has the potential to reclaim his throne, since he has a ton of new movies coming out and he tends to land roles in major blockbusters. »
