Prepare For Gotham Season 2 Premiere With Official Plot Synopsis; New Clip Features Joker

3 September 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though it was by no means perfect, Fox’s debut season of Gotham planted the roots of an origin story, focusing less on The Caped Crusader and more on Detective James Gordon’s unyielding fight for justice in the grimy DC city. Perhaps more so than its predecessor, season 2 of Fox’s live-action series will only up the ante for Ben McKenzie’s world-weary detective, and the official plot synopsis for September’s premiere only drives that point home.

We’ve long heard that Gotham‘s sophomore outing would bring about the Rise of the Villains – spearheaded by Robin Lord Taylor’s Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin – and its opening episode, titled ‘Damned if you do…’ will put Jim Gordon’s moral to the test.

Heroes And Villains Return In First Stills From Gotham's Season 2 Premiere

1 September 2015 1:29 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, Penguin, Riddler, and The Joker?   Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), Gotham follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. »

'Gotham' Season 2 Clip Visits the Joker Inside Arkham Asylum

31 August 2015 6:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the Season 2 premiere of Gotham rapidly approaching, Fox has released the first clip giving us a peek look inside Arkham Asylum. It features the first meeting between Jerome Valeksa, a.k.a. The Joker (Cameron Monaghan) and Barbara Kean (Erin Richards). While Jerome thinks he's bonding with Barbara, since they both landed in Arkham for killing their parents, Barbara is not the least bit interested in anything this "ginger" may have to say. Barbara shows Jerome that she's perfectly capable of taking care of herself, and making her own friends.

At the end of Gotham Season 1, Barbara killed her parents, while she was with a notorious serial killer known as The Ogre (Milo Ventimiglia). Now she resides in Arkham Aslyum, home to the criminally insane, but after showing off her powers of persuasion, it remains to be seen how long she'll be trapped in this prison. We have already »

‘The O.C.’: The Cohens’ House Goes Up for Sale

27 August 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anybody who has watched more than one episode of “The O.C.” has dreamed of living in the mansion the Cohens called home. Well, you could make that dream a reality for a breezy $6.25 million. “Welcome to the O.C., b—h.”

The real estate website Trulia has listed the mansion for sale, meaning the house wasn’t destroyed in an earthquake like it was on the series, which ran on Fox from 2003-2007.

It turns out the mansion — which saw Seth Cohen (Adam Brody) evolve from neurotic, shy guy pining for the girl to neurotic comic book artist who gets the girl, and Ryan Atwood (Ben McKenzie) change from a Chino outcast to a full-fledged Cohen family member — is located in a gated Malibu community and not in “Newpsie”-filled Newport Beach.

It’s worth mentioning that the Cohen Manor, complete with six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four acres of space, »

'Gotham' Season 2 Photo Goes Inside the Future Batcave

24 August 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Season 2 of Fox's hit series Gotham will pick up where the Season 1 cliffhanger left off, with Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) discovering Thomas Wayne's secret lair. While we'll have to wait until the Season 2 premiere, "Damned If You Do", to find out more about what secrets await Bruce and Alfred, TV Insider has debuted a new photo showing these characters as they explore this secret area. Here's what David Mazouz had to say about how this discovery alters young Bruce's views on his father, stating that this hidden area is not the Batcave.

"It changes everything in Bruce's life. It changes how he sees Alfred, the criminal side of Gotham, even how he sees his parents. It's definitely not the Batcave. What is down there are clues to Thomas Wayne's secret life and what he was trying to do before being killed."

Film Review: ‘Some Kind of Beautiful’

23 August 2015 2:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There comes a point in “Some Kind of Beautiful” when a boy, his father and his grandfather stand together on a pier, unzip their flies and proudly urinate into the Pacific Ocean — a scene of intergenerational bonding that Salma Hayek watches from afar with an affectionate “Aww, isn’t that sweet” expression on her face. It’s a wretched moment for any actress to have to play, though it’s certainly preferable to the one in which Hayek imitates a series of noisy, grunting male orgasms in front of two prim school administrators, whose expressions of withering unamusement will likely be matched by the audience’s own. From first frame to last, “Some Kind of Beautiful” is some kind of hideous, a perfect storm of romantic-comedy awfulness that seems to set the ailing genre back decades with the sheer force of its ineptitude. Commercially and artistically, this Lionsgate atrocity is »

The Joker Rises in 'Gotham' Season 2 Trailer

22 August 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gotham returns for Season 2 on September 21. And if the latest extended TV trailer is any indication, this year is going to be insane! While Ben McKenzie's James Gordon looks forward to a new day in his dreary town, a whole host of evil villains are planning their own coming out parties. And it's going to get ugly quick.

Gcpd Captain Essen (Zabryna Guevara) is hoping for a break in the chaos in light of the underworld power shifts that happened in the Gotham Season 1 finale. This latest teaser shows that's not happening anytime soon. We get a glimpse of everyone from Penguin and Victor Zaasz to Edward Nygma's Riddler. There's billionaire bad guy Theo Galvan and his sister Tabitha making their presence known on the scene as well, alongside the circus vet, Jerome Valeska, who many believe is The Joker.

Gotham Season 2: 7 Things You Need To Know

22 August 2015 2:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Twitter

Fox’s Gotham wrapped up as a ratings success after its first season, but the quality of the show proved much more contentious. After a scrappy start, the series began to find something of a stable identity, but the treatment of certain characters and rushed, ramshackle structure continues to split opinion.

Gotham was originally envisioned as a straight origin story for Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), but as the series developed it also came to fixate around a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and a cadre of famed villains including Catwoman (Camren Bicondova), Riddler (Cory Michael Smith) and Penguin (Robert Lord Taylor). To me, the original Gordon-centric origin story still feels the most exciting, but it was probably the bad guys who drew in the show’s viewership, so eh, what to I know?

Since the first year’s finish, news about prospective change has been rampant, with casting decisions, »
