Review: 'The Killing' concludes on Netflix, more miserable than ever

15 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Two weeks ago, Netflix released the fourth season — and what is allegedly the final season, though I have a hard time believing that, given history — of "The Killing," having revived the show after AMC canceled it for a second time. I have seen all six episodes, and while I already discussed it on this week's podcast, I had a few thoughts I wanted to write up, as well as provide a space for non-podcast listeners to weigh in on how they felt about the series' latest conclusion, with spoilers aplenty coming up just as soon as I’m somehow the most depressing character in a TV universe that also includes The Leftovers"... Season 3 of "The Killing" wasn't great, but it was easily the best of the show's three years on AMC. Confining the mystery to a single season reduced a few of the show's more aggravating tics to a more manageable size, »

Ed Harris Joins HBO’s ‘Westworld’ as Key Villain

11 August 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ed Harris is heading to TV in a villainous role.

The “Apollo 13″ and “The Abyss” actor has signed on to join HBO’s “Westworld” in key evil role, Variety has confirmed. He joins an already-announced cast of Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Shannon Woodward.

Harris will star as The Man in Black, described as the “distillation of pure villainy into one man.”

J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk are producing the adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film, which followed a robot malfunction that led to terror in a theme park. “Person of Interest’s” Jonathan Nolan will produce and direct the Warner Bros. Television one-hour drama, and co-wrote the pilot with exec producer Lisa Joy. Kathy Lingg serves as co-executive producer, with Athena Wickham as a producer, David Coatsworth as co-executive producer and line producer and Susie Ekins as co-producer.

The role is a return to HBO for Harris. »

'The Killing' Star Joel Kinnaman Exits CAA (Exclusive)

10 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Joel Kinnaman, the Swedish actor best known for AMC’s The Killing, has left CAA, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The 34-year-old actor joined the agency in May 2013 after he and several other clients of manager Shelley Browning split with UTA. Browning clients Rosamund Pike and Noomi Rapace remain at CAA. Kinnaman gained a following in Hollywood for his work in The Killing, which recently streamed its fourth and final season on Netflix. But the movie that was to have been his breakthrough into the mainstream, Robocop, fizzled in the U.S. when it was released earlier this year.

Liam Neeson Will Run All Night In April 2015

6 August 2014 6:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the Wachowskis’ space epic Jupiter Ascending was taken off the summer calendar and slotted for next February, we had a feeling that the shift might mess up Warner Bros.’ previously laid plans for early 2015. Now, the studio has officially announced what it’s changing – the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night has been moved from February 6th (when Jupiter will now open) to April 17th next year.

Even if effects work hadn’t caused Warner Bros. to delay Jupiter, it was possible Run All Night still would have ended up moving forward. After all, Fox is releasing Taken 3, also with Neeson, next January.

Run All Night will mark Neeson’s third collaboration with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) penned the script, which centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to go up against his brutal, sadistic former employer (Ed Harris »

Liam Neeson's 'Run All Night' Moves to Spring 2015

5 August 2014 8:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, Warner Bros. handed out a February 6, 2015 release date for Run All Night, but today, the studio has pushed it to April 17, 2015.

Both its current and former release slot are quite competitive, with a number of high-profile projects set on each date. Run All Night will go up against Lionsgate's Child 44, Focus Features' Selfless, Sony's Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Disney's Monkey Kingdom on April 17. Its former date, February 6, is currently occupied by Jupiter Ascending, Seventh Son, Mortdecai and The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

Liam Neeson stars in Run All Night as Jimmy, a hitman who squares off with his employer, a ruthless mafia boss (Ed Harris) to ensure the safety of his estranged son (Joel Kinnaman). Common, Vincent D'Onofrio, Boyd Holbrook, Genesis Rodriguez and Nick Nolte also star in director Jaume Collet-Serra's action-thriller.

The Killing, Ep. 4.01, “Blood in the Water” kicks off a new whodunit

4 August 2014 9:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Killing, Season 4, Episode 1, “Blood in the Water”

Written by Veena Sud

Directed by Nicole Kassell

Premiered Friday, August 1st on Netflix

A fourth season of The Killing seemed unlikely, to say the least, after the show was canceled. Fortunately for fans, Netflix stepped in and the series’ change in venue will likely shape the final season (it should, for example, allow Joel Kinnaman to drop an f-bomb, which I’ve been waiting for Holder to do since he was introduced back in the first season). What hasn’t changed is the series’ murder-mystery core. The premiere introduces two intertwining plots: the massacre of the Stansbury family (save for one survivor, son Kyle Stansbury, who does not remember the night of the murder), and whether Linden and Holder will be able to successfully cover up Linden’s shooting of Lt. Skinner from last season’s finale. The whodunit of who »

I Spent 4 Seasons Waiting for The Killing to Be Great. It Didn’t Happen.

1 August 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Killing returned for a fourth and final season on Netflix today with its greatest asset, its creepy-beautiful atmosphere, intact. Adapted from the superior Danish original by Veena Sud, this onetime AMC drama might feel like a classic if you projected it without sound on a large wall on the back room of a nightclub, where the show's voluptuously beautiful shots of misty mountains, rain-slicked streets, and characters traversing endless hallways could merge in the mind with a synthesized backbeat and whatever cocktails the place serves (probably something rain-themed). As is, The Killing has the same problems as always: a gravely solemn, we-are-reinventing-the-genre swagger that doesn't sync up with the stereotype-driven, sub-Special Victims Unit procedural you're actually watching; a fondness for red herrings and mistaken assumptions that make the two lead cops, Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), look like total dipsticks; pacing and emphasis problems »

Will six episodes be enough to repair one of TV's most complicated relationships? The Killing's resurrection is just days away, with all six episodes of the fourth and final season available to Netflix users on Friday, and we're seriously concerned over Holder and Linden's fractured partnership.  The seriously intense trailer hinted at the divide between the partners, and now we've got exclusive intel from stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos and executive producer Veena Sud on the new season and the "complicated" relationship between Linden and Holder after the shocking events of the season-three finale...

Mireille Enos Tries To Wash Away Her Sins in Clip From ‘The Killing’ Season 4 (Video)

29 July 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A little more than a year after its third season finale on AMC, Netflix will drop the entire six-episode final season of “The Killing” on Friday, Aug. 1. The streaming service released a clip that picks up the action shortly after that shocking season finale that was temporarily a series finale after AMC cancelled the show for a second time. Netflix swooped in and picked the drama up for a fourth and final season, giving Veena Sud and her team six episodes to wrap up the character arcs of Mireille Enos‘ Sarah Linden and Joel Kinnaman‘s Stephen Holder.

‘The Killing’ Season 4 Preview Clip & Posters Revealed

28 July 2014 7:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ahead of the August 1st premiere of the fourth and final season of The Killing, Netflix has released a preview clip and two new posters from the series to accompany the previously released previously released trailer. The Seattle-based crime drama centers on homicide detectives Sarah Linden and Stephan Holder, played respectively by Mireille Enos (World War Z) and Joel Kinnaman (the RoboCop reboot).

The video picks up directly after the events of season 3’s finale. A panicked Linden hurriedly sheds her pants and trademark sweater before stepping into a shower and letting blood and mud wash from her body and down the drain. After scrubbing the bathroom with bleach and packing the incriminating articles in a Hefty bag, the beleaguered detective burns them in a trashcan.

And then Holder arrives and says: “We’ve just ...

The Killing season four trailer: who is doing the killing this time?

24 July 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A new trailer has been released for what may be the thriller's final season and it looks as if Linden and Holder have something to hide

The Killing is back for a fourth (and final) season on Netflix on 1 August (although given the remake's track record of being cancelled and revived, who can really be sure this six-episode run will be the end?). The first trailer suggests that it's Linden and Holder who have been doing the killing this time. Just got to keep our story straight, Linden. No one's going to find out. You got rid of the gun, right? growls Holder (Joel Kinnaman) to his long-suffering partner (Mireille Enos).

TV Review: ‘The Killing,’ The Final Season on Netflix

21 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Killing” didn’t necessarily deserve an ending after its third-season cliffhanger, but the one-time AMC series — which went from sensation to scorned in near-record time — needed one. Recognizing a property with binge potential and name recognition, Netflix has obliged, punching up a six-episode final season that reunites the central characters and picks up pretty much where they left off — with baggage that spills over into, and largely eclipses, a new, fairly uninspired case. Despite flashes of what initially made the Danish adaptation so intriguing, this stretch drive can’t escape the feeling of a show ready to be put out of its misery.

The dense mood and mystery won the skein a rabid following, only to squander much of that goodwill when the first season didn’t wrap up the opening investigation. The second arc dragged, and a third — under a shared arrangement with Netflix — embarked on a new »

‘Ant-Man’: Kevin Feige Talks Edgar Wright’s Departure

18 July 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In one of this year’s biggest and most shocking celebrity breakups (sorry, Olivia Munn and Joel Kinnaman, you’ve been upstaged), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright departed Marvel StudiosAnt-Man after eight years in development. The split left many fans who had been eagerly awaiting the movie understandably confused, since Wright’s talent for mixing action with humor seemed like a perfect fit for the Marvel family.

Ant-Man is now back in track with Peyton Reed (Yes Man) signed on as the new director, but in the absence of precise details regarding Wright’s departure there has been a flurry of speculation as to what went wrong, particularly in light of the fact that Wright isn’t the ...
