31 October 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Marvel Television and Netflix have confirmed that acclaimed film and television director S.J. Clarkson (Marvel’s Jessica JonesVinyl, Orange is the New Black), will return to the Marvel universe to direct the first two episodes of the Netflix original series Marvel’s The Defenders. Clarkson will also serve as an Executive Producer on the premiere episode. The 8-episode limited series is slated to debut in 2017.

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal - to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.

Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb said:

What Is the Best Horror Movie Of The 21st Century? — IndieWire Critics Survey

31 October 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best horror film of the 21st century?

Charles Bramesco (@intothecrevasse), Freelancer for Rolling Stone, The Verge, Vulture

Everyone knows that the greatest Halloween film of all time is the 1962 nudie-cutie “House on Bare Mountain,” and my slavish devotion to giallo means that personal favorite horror movie of the new century is “Berberian Sound Studio”, but those are both answers to questions nobody asked. The finest horror film of the new millennium is “Cabin in the Woods”, both a dissertation on the history of the American scary movie and a chilling piece of work in its own right. With a fiendishly clever narrative hook, »

Two more names join the Deadpool 2 director shortlist

30 October 2016 8:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago it was reported that John Wick co-director David Leitch is frontrunner to succeed Tim Miller as director on Deadpool 2, although the original report stated that there were still other names in the mix.

Well, thanks to Deadline, we now know another two filmmakers on 20th Century Fox’s radar, with the site reporting that both Drew Goddard (Daredevil, The Cabin in the Woods) and Magnus Martens (Luke Cage, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) are also in contention.

Fox seems to be wasting little time in lining up a replacement for Miller following his departure last week owing to creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. And that’s no surprise really given the box office success of the first movie, which became the highest-grossing instalment of the X-Men franchise when it was released earlier this year.

Update 2: Fox May Turn To John Wick Director For Deadpool 2 -- Other Directors Named

28 October 2016 10:05 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Update 2: Looks like we have another couple directors to add the pool. Deadline is reporting that Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard (who also executive produces Netflix's Daredevil) is in the running to helm the Deadpool 2. Also throwing his hat in the ring is TV director Magnus Martens, who directed an episode of Luke Cage. There are also others involved in the search, but these are a couple of the bigger names.

Update 1: Mashable's Jeff Sneider took to Twitter to clarify the story regarding David Leitch, stating that the director's hiring is "not official" and that he is merely a frontrunner at this point. You can check out the tweet below:

Update: David Leitch's hiring is Not official. We'll let you know when it is. He remains the frontrunner, per... me.

Ridley Scott Feted by Matt Damon, Russell Crowe and Sigourney Weaver

15 October 2016 5:32 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“Let’s grab this night by the pussy,” said Russell Crowe, exhorting the Beverly Hilton ballroom attendees at the annual American Cinematheque Ball to go out and vote on election day. Then the night’s charming master of ceremonies got down to the business at hand: tributing director Ridley Scott.

Crowe reminded us that Scott made his first feature film at 40—and showed us his delightful black and white 1962 “Boy and Bicycle” short student film, shot on a borrowed 16mm camera and starring his younger brother by six years, Tony, who also became a director.

At night’s end, when grateful “The Martian” Oscar nominee Matt Damon presented Scott, 78, with his award,  Scott tracked back in time, recalling how he wasn’t a very good student, hard as he tried, and the teacher who suggested that he go to art school. Scott attended the Royal College of Art and studied film, »

The Best of Broadcast TV, So Far

26 September 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Before we get too far in, let us say this: There are so many more shows coming out. Even limiting our list to the upcoming debuts on broadcast TV, we still have “Timeless,” “No Tomorrow,” “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and “Man With a Plan,” to name just a few.

But over the past few weeks, Fall TV has kicked into high gear. With prominent new releases like “Lethal Weapon,” “Designated Survivor” and “Pitch” as well as low-profile favorites like “Speechless” and “Son of Zorn,” there’s been a lot of new options to sift through. Which ones should you be watching? Which shows should you skip? Which pilots are worth sampling, and which series should have a permanent slot on your DVR?

IndieWire’s Movie Podcast (116): What’s the Deal With the Foreign Language Oscar Submissions?

23 September 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In many ways, the Oscar race is still just starting. We have yet to see a lot of highly anticipated contenders, and the campaigns for some of the more prominent films have yet to take complete shape. But the situation is slightly different for foreign language contenders, now that numerous countries have submitted their selections to contend for the shortlist. So what’s the deal with the foreign language Oscar process — and why is it up to the countries, rather than than Academy voters, to choose the best overseas options from the past year?

That’s a central topic in this week’s episode of Screen Talk, in which Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson look through the submissions to see which ones have serious potential. They also look at the recent triumph of “La La Land” at the Toronto International Film Festival, and why this may not be the big Oscar boost everyone expects. »

The Good Place Season 1 Review

18 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Despite its yearly tendency to swing the cancellation axe with Lizzie Borden-esque abandon, NBC has somehow remained a reliable bastion for quality comedy. The home of Friends, Cheers, Seinfeld, 30 Rock, and the enduring Saturday Night Live, it’s semi-regularly offered viewers the best half-hour sitcoms to be found anywhere on the small screen. That’s no small feat, especially with HBO and Showtime leading a movement of razor-sharp satires (Veep, Episodes) and innovative dramedies (Girls, Shameless) liberated by primetime network restrictions. NBC hasn’t just endured the rise of the premium cable networks; with series like Community and Parks and Recreation that deconstructed then re-invented the sitcom and mockumentary formats, it’s flourished.

In a post-Community, post-Parks world, however, all eyes are back on the network, wondering whether any of its fresh offerings can measure up. After all, for every Community, there »

Review: Is 'The Good Place' a heavenly new comedy for Kristen Bell & Ted Danson?

16 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael Schur's choice of TV subjects started out very small, growing over time until his latest show is about life, the universe, and everything. Schur started out writing for Greg Daniels on The Office, telling obscure stories about obscure people whose lives and dreams rarely grew beyond a paper company branch office in Scranton. Then he and Daniels created Parks and Recreation, which began almost as small, focusing on the staff of an Indiana town's parks department, before expanding outward until Leslie and Ben both had prominent national government jobs (one of them perhaps becoming President by the end). Then he and Dan Goor did Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is about New York cops, focusing mainly on squadroom goofiness but occasionally showing the detectives taking down drug rings, mobsters, and even a serial killer. Now, though, comes the Schur-created The Good Place (it debuts Monday at 10 on NBC with back-to-back episodes, »

Spider-Man’s new nemesis: ‘Orange Is the New Black’ actor Michael Chernus

10 August 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Uh oh. Spider-Man: Homecoming is in danger of becoming the next Spider-Man 3. That movie, the end of the Tobey Maguire take on Marvel’s web-slinger, had the issue of being inelegantly overpacked with villains. The Sandman, Venom, and the Green Goblin — a bit much. And that was only three villains! Now Homecoming has more.  Upcoming Sony-Disney team-up Spider-Man: Homecoming has signed on yet another villain. The latest addition to the Tom Holland Spidey’s rogue gallery: Phineas Mason the Tinkerer. … Who? Confession: I had no idea who this dude was. Wikipedia tells me he’s a supervillain with “an almost superhuman gift of genius in engineering, able to invent sophisticated gadgets from nothing more than spare parts left over from ordinary household appliances.” Wait, engineering is a superpower now? Tinkerer is a pretty deep cut. Even Marvel.com says, “Very little is known about the criminal known as the Tinkerer. »

Drew Goddard Definitely Involved in Netflix’s ‘Defenders’

9 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After writer and producer Drew Goddard helped kickstart Netflix’s franchise of Marvel television, he had to leave his series, Daredevil, after mapping out the first season and writing the first two episodes in order to work on Sony’s now-defunct Sinister Six film. He stayed on the series as an executive producer, but many are wondering if the man who really got things going will take part in the future of Netflix’s Marvel experiment. Luckily, yes. Goddard recently confirmed that he’ll be serving as an executive producer on The Defenders, the upcoming miniseries that will unite Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist
