Will a 'Transformers' / 'G.I. Joe' Crossover Movie Ever Happen?

21 June 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In this new cinematic age of movie team-ups and giant ensembles like Marvel's The Avengers and DC Comics' Justice League, it makes sense that Hasbro might bring together its two biggest properties for one giant movie experience. Well, don't hold your breath waiting for a Transformers/G.I. Joe movie crossover anytime soon. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura doesn't believe the stars will ever align in order to make this happen.

When asked by MTV about the prospects of Hasbro's toy giants coming together on the big screen, the producer had this to say:

"We haven't spent a moment on it. I know they did it in the comic books, but I think the reality that we're looking at is...It's hard enough to figure out how to do it alone and [then] trying to figure out how to do it together...I don't think that it's as organic as people think. »

Crisis: New TV Show Cancelled by NBC

9 May 2014 10:21 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC is cleaning house on Sunday nights. They'll surely cancel American Dream Builders, they've cancelled Believe and they've also cancelled Crisis as well.

An action/thriller series, Crisis finds out what might happen if the children of powerful people from Washington, DC were to be taken prisoner. The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Rachael Taylor, Lance Gross, James Lafferty, Max Martini, Michael Beach, Stevie Lynn Jones, Halston Sage, Max Schneider, Joshua Erenberg, and Gillian Anderson.

Unfortunately, this show seemed doomed from the start. It debuted to lackluster ratings and the numbers sank lower and lower each week. At one point, Crisis drew just a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.73 million viewers.

On the upside, it seems likely that NBC will release of the remaining episodes. Eight of the 13 episodes have aired so far.

Crisis: New Gillian Anderson NBC drama to air on Watch in UK

9 April 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Crisis is to air on Watch in the UK from later this year.

The new 13-part NBC drama - starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney - follows an abduction of the children of Washington DC's powerful elite.

Former X-Files actress Anderson plays the role of Meg Fitch, the CEO of a corporation and whose daughter is one of those abducted, and Mulroney stars as ex-cia field operative Francis Gibson.

Watch general manager Steve Hornsey said: "Watch brings its audience another irresistible UK premiere. Crisis is an exciting and original conspiracy thriller full of unexpected plot twists.

"It captures the current enthusiasm for political intrigue in a fast-paced and dramatic character story, brought to life by a fantastic ensemble cast."

Also in the cast are Rachael Taylor as Meg's estranged sister and Lance Gross as Agent Marcus Finley.

Rand Ravich - creator of Damian Lewis drama Life - is behind Crisis. »

Crisis: Season One Ratings

7 April 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

CBS didn't find ratings success with Hostages. Will NBC fare any better with Crisis? Will it be cancelled after one season? We shall see.

An action/thriller series, Crisis finds out what might happen if the children of powerful people from Washington, DC were to be taken prisoner. The cast includes Dermot Mulroney, Rachael Taylor, Lance Gross, James Lafferty, Max Martini, Michael Beach, Stevie Lynn Jones, Halston Sage, Max Schneider, Joshua Erenberg, and Gillian Anderson.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

The "Transformers" star candidly talked about becoming a victim after admitting it was a "difficult thing to talk about". Taylor has never named the former beau who subjected. »

Crisis: Cancel or Keep NBC's New Drama?

31 March 2014 2:27 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This season, NBC has found ratings success with new TV series like The Blacklist and Chicago Pd. Unfortunately, many of their other new shows -- Sean Saves the World, The Michael J. Fox Show, Ironside, etc. -- have been cancelled or soon will be. How is Crisis doing? Will it survive to see a second season or will it be cancelled as well?

'Crisis' react: What would you do for your child?

16 March 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Crisis could be NBC’s answer to a procedural hit.

Why? The show is backed by a high-caliber cast, some interesting twists, and enough potential storytelling to twist itself into something really explosive. Granted, none of that guarantees any success, but I will admit to being more involved than I expected to be, given the reveals of the first episode. (Let’s be honest: My main reason for tuning in to this show in the first place was my 20+ year love for Gillian Anderson, whom I will watch in anything and everything. So, it’s safe to say I was »

'Crisis' premiere: Kidnapping, conspiracies and Gillian Anderson in the pilot episode

16 March 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Crisis" marks NBC's final midseason premiere and one of the first truly engrossing episodes of new network programming seen in months. Plot twists, real tension and surprising emotions make this one of the best pilots of the year -- let's just hope that a semi-buried arrival doesn't kill the "Crisis" before its full potential can be reached.

When the tuition just isn't worth it

The show begins with the Ballard School. It's one of those ultra-high-end, D.C. academies that most of us only ever hear vague rumors of, the kind of place where Presidents and diplomats send their kids for education and around -the-clock protection.

Why so much protection? Let's just say that "Crisis" makes that all too clear.

A group of particularly important kids are going on a field trip to do community service in New York. The group includes class-president Amber, Us President's-son Kyle, smart and fat boy Anton, »

'Crisis' Gillian Anderson: 'It's really important she's not evil'

16 March 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Anyone who's watched the political and personal machinations on "The West Wing" or "House of Cards" -- or watched cable news for half a day -- realizes that the rich and powerful can be just as vulnerable as human beings as anybody else.

We all have our weak points, and when you hit people where it hurts most, they'll give up just about anything to make it stop.

On Sunday, March 16, NBC premieres "Crisis," a 13-episode drama that tracks the moment-to-moment action when mysterious forces snatch the progeny of the powerful, to use as leverage against their parents.

"The machine of the season," says executive producer (with Far Shariat and Phillip Noyce) Rand Ravich to Zap2it, "The machine of the season is, 'What will you do for your child?' So we want to see parents, week after week, being asked the question, 'Will they say yes?' 'Will they say no? »

Gillian Anderson talks 'Crisis' (and why she was fine not knowing everything)

16 March 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

There’s probably a good reason why NBC.com doesn’t go into detail about the characters on the network’s new drama Crisis, premiering March 16 at 10 p.m. Et — and presumably it’s because most of them aren’t exactly who they seem.

The story is set in motion when a bus carrying the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite — students at Ballard High, including the president’s son — is ambushed. Taken hostage, they’ll be used as leverage: Imagine what powerful parents can be convinced to do when their children are in danger. Gillian Anderson stars as Meg Fitch, »

'Crisis' premiere video: High-powered parents, terrorists and children in peril

16 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

NBC's new drama, "Crisis," basically has it all. There are children in danger, kidnapped by terrorists with mysterious and nefarious desires. The kids' parents are among the most powerful people in the world -- even the President's son gets taken.

Unraveling the mystery -- and saving the innocent (whoever they may be) -- is what will keep the show going. Watch a few preview videos for the show to get a feel for what is coming.

Although this is very much an ensemble show, sisters Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor) and Meg Fitch (Gillian Anderson) are at the center of everything. Susie is one of the lead FBI agents assigned to the case, while Meg's daughter, Amber, is one of the kidnapped kids.

Needless to say, relations between the sisters are strained at best.

It's not just a story of sibling rivalry on "Crisis." Other main characters include Secret Service agent »

Crisis' Rachael Taylor: I Hope Viewers "Love to Hate" My Character

15 March 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

There's not a lot of time for character development in the pilot episode of Crisis, NBC's hostage thriller that premieres Sunday. The first hour is more preoccupied with immersing viewers into the action and getting a couple of major twists out of the way than delving into the depths of its major players.

But here's what we do know: A bus of children is taken hostage by a group of highly trained criminals while on a field trip. What do the bad guys want? It's unclear. But the children's parents all hold positions of power in Washington, D.C., ranging from the CEO of a major corporation (Gillian Anderson) to the president of the United States. There's also a nearly unrecognizable Dermot Mulroney playing a shlubby parent chaperone who's an embarrassment to his daughter, but who defies expectations when it comes to the events that unfold. And in a made-for-tv coincidence, »

Why Gillian Anderson Is TV's Reigning Queen, Balancing Three Series

13 March 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The prevailing feeling one gets after watching the first two hours of NBC’s new series "Crisis," which premieres this Sunday, March 16 at 10pm, is that it’s incredibly tense. Starring Gillian Anderson, Dermot Mulroney and Rachael Taylor, the show feels like it could easily be another crisis-of-the-week episodic thriller, but once you realize that "Crisis" is a serialized drama with a longer endgame, it begins to reveal its true potential and feels much more in line with the network's recent slate of dramas that include the critically acclaimed "Hannibal" (on which Anderson also appears as a recurring character). Indiewire sat down star Gillian Anderson to talk about the series premiere, working on three shows ("Crisis," "Hannibal" and the British "The Fall") nearly simultaneously, and the future of "The X-Files." When you get such critical acclaim for consecutive shows, is there ever a worry about ruining the streak or the »

'Crisis': Webisode first look acts as prequel to new NBC drama

13 March 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Get a chance to get to know the students in NBC's new drama "Crisis" before the series premieres on Sunday (March 16) in this Zap2it-exclusive clip from the show's new webisode.

In the video, viewers are introduced to Ian (Max Schneider) and Beth Anne (Stevie Lynn Jones). The two students are discussing their upcoming school trip -- which, of course, gets hijacked and sets into motion the events of "Crisis" -- as well as Beth Anne's family problems.

The webisode is a little meta, because Schneider -- like Ian -- is known on YouTube and Twitter for his talents as a musician. "Crisis" also stars Dermot Mulroney, Gillian Anderson and Rachael Taylor.

"Crisis" premieres at 10 p.m. Et/Pt Sunday on NBC. »

TV Review: ‘Crisis’

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

Like a lot of big dramatic concepts, “Crisis” comes with a pretty impressive array of moving parts: A group of kidnapped D.C. teenagers that includes the President’s son; the well-connected parents of those kids; the FBI and Secret Service agents trying to get them back; and of course the bad guys. It’s all enough to make for a reasonably entertaining pilot, while inviting skepticism about how long the producers can keep those multiple plates spinning, a la NBC’s “The Event” or (more recently) CBS’ “Hostages.” For now, it’s an intriguing enough premise to warrant continued attention.

Inordinately well prepared, the kidnappers strike early, snatching a bus that carries children of privilege who attend a private school. While the transport is filled with the progeny of diplomats and CEOs, the presence of the First Teenager (there’s some debate over whether he was the target or »
