Ryan Murphy’s upcoming anthology horror, Scream Queens, has operated thus far under the cover of darkness. It’s not hard to see why, either. Everything Murphy puts his hand to turns to gold and Fox wants to keep a lid on his next bout of genius. From Glee to American Horror Story his unique approach to television narratives is refreshingly lapped up by appreciative audiences and critics. And now, Murphy has opened up about some of the campus comedy’s inner workings, along with revealing the first official photos from the show.
Thus far, we’ve only been clued in to the vague outline of the series: a campus-set horror comedy about a series of killings. In a new interview, Murphy has gone one step further, describing it as a “real murder mystery whodunit” in the vein of “Heathers meets Friday the 13th.” He goes »

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s next anthology series is expected to do for the horror comedy subgenre what American Horror Story did for plain ole horror. Currently in production, the first season of Scream Queens revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders. How the storyline will expand past what sounds like the plot from Scream 2 (which, isn’t related in any way bar its titular similarity) mixed with Scream 2-ripoff Urban Legend is as yet unknown, because Fox are keeping their cards close on this one.
However, they’ll happily ply us with numerous teasers of its leading ladies engaging in innocent activities gone awry. The last 16-second tease showed Emma Roberts putting on lipstick and checking her reflection in a butcher’s knife, and that evocative visual has clearly struck a chord as she’s doing the same thing on a new poster. »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Fox is embracing the two Friday the 13ths we’ve seen so far in 2015 to springboard its forthcoming horror comedy series Scream Queens. A brief tease landed on that unlucky day in February, and a new 20-second clip made its way online late last week, with Emma Roberts making her trailer debut.
The show hails from American Horror Story‘s Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who are marshalling the anthology series along with Glee cohort Ian Brennan. Specific story details are being kept out of the public forum at this time, but we know that the show will revolve around “a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders and is set in a sorority house.”
Roberts’ appearance in the above clip is an alluring glimpse mainly into the tone of the show. Exhibiting a pastel color palette, commercial pop soundtrack and an actress blowing bubblegum hints more »

The actor told Variety that he was in "the worst situation ever" after he decided to take a shot of whiskey to relax his vocal cords for the audition.
Dornan said: "I had to sing 'Waiting for a Girl Like You'. It's nearly impossible to sing, and I've got quite a deep voice when I sing. My audition was at 10 in the morning on the Warner Bros lot.
"I convinced myself it would be a good idea to have a bit of whiskey to relax my vocal cords and maybe as a bit of a confidence booster. Suddenly, I took a swig of Jameson and I instantly f**king puked."
He continued: "So I'm standing with all these executives driving around in golf carts, as I'm vomiting on the lot. It was a bad look. »

Vertical Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the North American rights to "Eden," a thriller directed by Shyam Madiraju. The "Lord Of The Flies"-esque story follows the crew of an American soccer team after their plane crashes off the coast of a deserted island. The group separates into two factions, increasingly at odds as resources and food supplies begin to run out. Producer Juan Sola said about the deal: "We are excited to once again partner with Vertical Entertainment on the release of our survival thriller, 'Eden'. The collaboration on our first film 'Anna' was a great experience." The film stars Ethan Peck (grandson of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck), Jessica Lowndes ("90210"), Diego Boneta ("Rock of Ages"), James Remar, Sung Kang, and Nate Parker ("Beyond The Lights"). Vertical plans to release "Eden" in late 2015. Read More: Clarius Entertainment Acquires 'Cell', Starring Nicolas Cage and »

The film will be released in theaters in the third quarter. Voltage will be handling international sales of the film during the Berlin Film Festival.
The script, written by Mark Mavrothalasitis and Nate Parker, centers on a plane crash off the coast of a deserted Pacific island, leaving the surviving members of an American soccer team with limited resources, dwindling food supply and no rescue coming any time soon. Team spirit evaporates as two factions form – a violent one lead by an unbalanced ruler (played by Peck) and a compassionate one led by a selfless player (played by Parker).

“I find that as a woman in my 50s, it’s often a time when people are stepping back from their career and I feel very encouraged that I’m moving into a whole new chapter for my career,” Downey told reporters Monday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena.

The four-hour limited series event from Downey and Mark Burnett, based on Alice Hoffman’s book of the same name, stars “NCIS’s” Cote de Pablo, Rachel Brosnahan, Kathryn Prescott, Diego Boneta and Sam Neill.
Downey said after the huge success of her “Bible” miniseries on History (which drew more than 100 million views), she knew viewers would be “hungry” for “Dovekeepers,” which she decided to produce because she is such a big fan of the novel.
“At its heart, ‘Dovekeepers’ is a love story…there is tragedy, of course, but at its heartbeat, there is beauty and hope,” Downey said on the TCA panel, adding that the dark story of Masada, which was filmed in Malta, is “profoundly moving.”
The net is hoping that de Pablo’s “noisy” fanbase, »
