For more than three weeks, despite brutal intrusions into our company and our employees’ personal lives, we maintained our focus on one goal: getting the film The Interview released.

'Walking Dead's' Norman Reedus: Beth's Death Puts Daryl "Into a Depression"

3 hours ago

The hits keep coming for The Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon. Norman Reedus' alter ego first lost his brother, Merle (Michael Rooker), when Rick (Andrew Lincoln) chained him to a rooftop in Atlanta — then a second time when he resurfaced in season three with a loyalty to The Governor when he died during the group's vicious battle. That came after Daryl devoted what felt like an eternity searching for friend Carol's (Melissa McBride) young daughter Sophia (Madison Lintz) during season two, only to find the girl locked up in Hershel's barn — as a zombie.

More Sony Hack Fallout: Google Fights Mississippi and the MPAA

4 hours ago

On Friday, Google filed papers in Mississippi federal court demanding that Jim Hood, the state attorney general, be restrained from an investigation that targets how the web giant facilitates the distribution of infringing content and goods. The motion for a preliminary injunction (read below) would be noteworthy even if there wasn't any connection to what's been happening to Sony Pictures. But Google's legal action becomes even more remarkable given the context that its court papers have been informed by stolen documents from Sony headquarters. In today's filing, Google seizes upon news reports about "Project Goliath," an apparent campaign by

5 hours ago

On Friday morning, the Academy released its foreign language committee's shortlist of nine films — selected from a record 83 submissions this year — from which the five nominees for the best foreign language film Oscar will soon be chosen.

It has a few true-life stories that could prove engrossing and appealing to a wide

The president also stated that the U.S. would be responding to North Korea, although he did not further elaborate on those plans. "Sony is a corporation; it suffered significant damage. There were threats against its employees. I am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. Having said all that, yes, I think they made a mistake," the

Sony's Michael Lynton Defends Studio: "We Have Not Caved"

Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton has given his first television interview to discuss the damaging cyberattack on the studio.  "I think actually the unfortunate part is in this instance, the president, the press and the public are mistaken as to what actually happened," Lynton said in excerpts of the interview that aired on CNN on Friday.

The Best Broadcast Network Shows of 2014

5 hours ago

When awards season rolls around for the television industry, most of those in the broadcast network world know what's coming. Nothing. Cable — and now digital with Netflix and Amazon and sometimes Hulu — dominates the awards culture and Big Tent practitioners get ignored for the most part. But what network series do very differently from what cable series do — both in intent and execution — needs to be noticed. And celebrated. By dint of trying to appeal to the widest audience, "broad" content dominates, and broad content is often shallow. But the networks do a lot that's worthy

Meet the Bros. Dardenne, Belgium's National Treasures Behind 'Two Days, One Night'

If you don't frequent the Cannes, Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals, or at least your local art house movie theater, you may not know the names Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne. But, as someone who does, take my word for it: these soft-spoken, unassuming sexagenarian brothers from Belgium are as talented and consistently on-the-mark as any filmmakers in the world — and they have been for years. That's why I find it so utterly unbelievable that the Academy has never even nominated one of their projects for the best foreign language film Oscar, even
