Watch: 5 Deleted Scenes From Angelina Jolie's Hit 'Maleficent'

22 September 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Love it or hate it, Disney’s gritty “Sleeping Beauty” retread “Maleficent” was a monster hit for the studio, earning $240 million domestic, and raking in an impressive $750 million worldwide, which currently places it second in 2014 total box office, right behind “Transformers: How Do These Movies Keep Making More Money Than The Gdp Of The Entire Continent of Africa”? And to keep the train rolling, "Maleficent" will hit Blu-ray, DVD and VOD on November 4, and Disney’s rolling out some of the special features early, as five deleted scenes were recently posted on the interwebs. Most of the scenes are brief and consist of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) bickering with her manservant Diaval (Sam Riley). An unfinished CGI crow effect at the end of one of these sequences is sure to satisfy fans of the craptastic cult favorite “Birdemic”. The longest scene, depicting Stefan (Sharlto Copley) lusting after the king’s crown, »

First Look: Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward in superhero procedural 'Powers'

16 September 2014 5:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) A first look at Sharlto Copley as Christian Walker and Susan Heyward as Deena Pilgrim in "Powers." USA Today has posted the first official photo of Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward as "Powers" lead characters Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim on the set of the Sony PlayStation Network series. "It's such a clever concept to try and imagine a real world where you actually have to deal with powers and how they impact society, and to do that through the lens of a cop drama," executive producer Charlie Huston told USA Today. Although "Powers" is based on the comic of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Bendis said the television series would actually be a "different experience" than the source material. "My dream was for the show and the books to almost run in parallel universes as they explore the same themes," Bendis said. »

Sony has revealed the first image of its PlayStation-exclusive television show, Powers, which features Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward. The duo are poised to play Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, respectively; two homicide detectives who have a particular interest in cases orbiting around those with superhuman abilities.

USA Today also caught up with the show’s executive producer, Charlie Huston, who touched upon the core concept of the series and how the dynamic between the two genres adds a sense of realism to Powers.

“It’s such a clever concept to try and imagine a real world where you actually have to deal with powers and how they impact society, and to do that through the lens of a cop drama.”

Though Michael Avon Oeming and Brian Michael Bendis’ comic book never made it on to the silver screen over at FX, Sony chose to pick up the IP and »

First Photo: Sony's "Powers" TV Series

16 September 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Production is officially underway on the upcoming TV series adaptation of the acclaimed comic "Powers" for Sony Pictures, and today USA Today has posted a first look photo from the series starring Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward as Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim respectively.

The story follows two detectives assigned to investigate superhero-related major crimes. The series is slated to launch exclusively on the PlayStation Network this December, an advantage says executive producer Charlie Huston because the show will have network production values but without content restrictions:

"My dream was for the show and the books to almost run in parallel universes as they explore the same themes. We're getting the best of both worlds. We're getting a network-budgeted show, and we're getting to dive in as dark and deep as we want to go."
