Outlander: Ronald D. Moore and Gary Lewis Talk Fans, Partridge Family Socks and More

46 minutes ago

Ronald D. Moore certainly knows a thing or two about dealing with especially passionate fan bases, so who better to head up a book-to-tv adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander than him? The show centers on Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a WWII combat nurse who accidentally winds up traveling back in time to 1743. While Claire’s busy cozying up with Scottish soldier Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) in the 18th century, her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) is trying to track her down in 1945. I recently got the opportunity to sit down with Moore and Gary Lewis who plays Colum MacKenzie, the chieftain of the MacKenzie Clan, about working on the series. They discussed if the demographic of the book had an effect on what they do in the show, the especially steamy sex scenes, the “Partridge Family socks” Lewis has to wear so that they can depict the effect Toulouse-Lautrec Syndrome »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron Home Release To Include Extended Cut, Alternate Ending

3 hours ago

Is talking about Avengers: Age of Ultron's theatrical release already passe? Because new rumors are focusing on Phase 2: home release. Apparently (according to those who have seen it), many scenes from Ultron's trailer don't make it into the theatrical release, meaning that fans will be getting an extended release at some point that is closer to Joss Whedon's initial 3-hour version (which he confirmed in a recent Collider interview). That version may come sooner than later, though, as an email from Amazon UK about pre-ordering the home release has also confirmed not only that the movie will contain that extended version, but that it will also include an alternate ending. This is also interesting because it seems like Marvel won't be holding back on a ton of features for a (presumable) future box set release, which should certainly make fans happy, at least. Now, as for this »

Theo James Talks Franny, Working with Richard Gere and Allegiant at Tribeca

7 hours ago

Theo James hit it pretty big after Divergent so if you’re quick to peg him as an indestructible action hero that’s pretty fair, but just wait until you see the more dramatic turn he takes in Franny. The movie stars Richard Gere as the title character, an insanely wealthy guy who doesn’t have a family of his own, but has basically become a second father to his best friends’ daughter Olivia (Dakota Fanning). Five years after their passing, Franny becomes obsessed with taking care of Olivia as if she were his own and that generosity extends to Olivia’s new husband, Luke (James), as well. Luke knows he shouldn’t accept the over-the-top gifts Franny keeps giving, but with a baby on the way, how can he turn down a house and a great career? While in New York City for the Franny world premiere at the »

The Avengers Revisited: “I Was Playing Something Even Riskier”

9 hours ago

[With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening on Friday, I’m taking a look back at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  These articles do not contain spoilers for unreleased Marvel movies. If you know any spoilers about the unreleased Marvel movies, please do not post them in the comments section.] “The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could become something more,” Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) tells a downtrodden crew after Loki (Tom Hiddleston) escapes and the team is scattered. The same applies to Marvel’s plan for The Avengers. If Iron Man showed a new path for superhero movies, The Avengers showed a new path for blockbuster franchises. It wasn’t enough to just keep making more superhero movies. Marvel Studios showed that there could be superhero films far bigger than anything we’d seen before. And the studio put it all on the shoulders of a guy who had helmed three cult TV shows and a sci-fi film that flopped at the box office. They put it on a guy who broke from Marvel’s mold by having a distinct, singular voice that would unite characters who came from a »

Caption This: Cobblepot Confusion on Gotham, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Coulson Gets Casual

9 hours ago

Last week in our inaugural Caption This post, I noted that when putting together our recaps over here on Collider TV, we’ve noticed that every week, episodic stills for some of our favorite shows end up being unintentionally hilarious, awkward, or just plain strange. So now on Saturdays, we’ll be posting one (or two) of these images, and asking you to leave your best caption in the comments. In the second week of "Caption This," I present to you a dilemma at the Cobblepot home. What realization do you think Gotham's Oswald Cobblepot and mother Gertrud Kapelput have come to in this scene? [caption id="attachment_448941" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image via Fox[/caption] And as a bonus (because often I simply cannot choose), this week's "Caption This" is brought to you in part by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Casual Coulson: [caption id="attachment_448939" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image via ABC[/caption]

Friday Box Office: The Age Of Adaline Tops Furious 7 on Opening Day

9 hours ago

This weekend is our last before Avengers: Age of Ultron brings the hammer down on the domestic box office. The sequel started its international rollout on Wednesday and took first place in all of its initial markets. In its first two days, Ultron earned $44.8 million. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the deluge to come, as evidenced by the fact that the film is already outpacing Marvel’s The Avengers and Iron Man 3 overseas. With so much attention focused on next week – when the official summer box office season begins here in North America – it’s no wonder that this weekend’s box office feels a bit subdued by comparison. The good news for Universal is that Furious 7 should have no trouble holding on to first place for a very rare fourth consecutive frame. The last film to spend four weeks in first place was The Hunger Games, »

The Best Reactions to Jared Leto’s Joker Reveal

10 hours ago

Last night, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the character, director David Ayer revealed our first official full-size look at Jared Leto as The Joker in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Suicide Squad. With Heath Ledger’s iconic performance from The Dark Knight looming large, we figured we’d be in for something entirely different with Leto's take—and we were right. In keeping with this new Zack Snyder-created tone for the Warner Bros. DC Universe that was set in Man of Steel and will be solidified in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Leto’s Joker is like Nolan’s gritty Batman on steroids. The darkness of Nolan’s trilogy remains, but there’s an added twinge of revelry in the comic book source material as opposed to simply translating everything to “real life.” [caption id="attachment_449637" align="alignright" width="320"] Image via David Ayer[/caption] Reactions to the reveal of Leto’s Joker were unsurprisingly »

Salem: Creator Adam Simon Talk Season 2, Tituba, and Witch Cakes

11 hours ago

Salem season 2 is taking things to a new level. The Great Rite was performed and the witch plague is in full force. Though Increase Mather (Stephen Lang) met his end at the hand of his son, Cotton (Seth Gabel), we’ve now got angry Puritans declaring all-out war against the women of the town, including Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery). A scientist (Stuart Townsend) has moved in to study the plague, while a powerful hereditary witch (Lucy Lawless) has come to investigate why this particular Great Rite was successful whereas her past attempt didn’t work. Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant) is now a powerful witch and Mercy Lewis (Elise Eberle) is on the warpath. I got a chance to visit the Salem set in Shreveport, Louisiana a while back and talked to the cast and crew, including creator Adam Simon. He talked about the strangest thing he found out while researching the real Salem witch trials, »

Top 5: CinemaCon 2015, Fantastic Four Trailer, Spider-Man Shortlist, Black Mass, Amy Schumer Obliterates Rape Culture

14 hours ago

Currently streaming on Netflix is director Tony Shaff's fascinating documentary Hotline. The film premiered last year at Canada's Hot Docs festival and focuses on a slew of American telephone hotlines for suicide prevention, psychic readings (starring Miss Cleo!), phone sex, and more. Its tagline states that "It's ok to talk to strangers" and while that's probably not the best advice to give the children in your life, within the context of the doc it's entirely appropriate. The idea of learning more about the hotline industry and the people on both ends of the phone is intriguing in its own right, but Hotline really found its footing with me through its exploration of telephone technology as a means of fostering meaningful, often times cathartic, human interaction amongst two anonymous parties. The doc puts an emphasis on the unique value of being able to verbalize our deepest fears, concerns, insecurities, etc. »

Michiel Huisman Talks Age Of Adaline, Game Of Thrones, and More

22 hours ago

Everywhere I look, all I see is Michael Huisman. On Game of Thrones, there he is as Daario Naharis – swashbuckling adventurer and wooer of the queen of dragons. One immensely popular show though does not suffice for Huisman. The Dutch actor, since transitioning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, has appeared in a bevy of shows ranging from Treme to Orphan Black to Nashville. Now Huisman takes the leap into cinemas, costarring opposite Blake Lively in the romance The Age of Adaline. In the picture, Huisman plays the world’s greatest guy: Ellis Jones – a handsome multi-millionaire philanthropist. Nobody else even stands a chance. Typically romances are founded on the dilemma of two competing suitors. Should the male or female lead go off and live ‘happily ever after’ with [Option A] or [Option B]? In The Age of Adaline, there is no [Option B]. Either Lively chooses to be with Huisman or she chooses to be with no one. »

Wolverine Sequel: Michael Green Will Pen Hugh Jackman’s Last Turn as the Mutant

24 April 2015 7:02 PM, PDT

20th Century Fox has hired Green Lantern and Heroes scribe Michael Green to write the script for the upcoming The Wolverine sequel. Hugh Jackman will reunite with director James Mangold for the follow-up to their 2013 stand alone film, which offered a more introspective look at the character (until the third act devolved into the obligatory comic book movie action-fest). Per The Wrap, Green is returning to superhero territory after penning the highly anticipated Bladerunner sequel. David James Kelly was previously attached to pen the script for what Jackman recently announced will be his final performance as the grizzled mutant. According to recent comments by Patrick Stewart, the film may feature Professor Xavier and explore the fascinating relationship between the two characters. The Wolverine sequel is expected to arrive in theaters March 3, 2017, so it makes sense that Fox is putting the wheels into motion on the project at this time.

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

24 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT

We got a fuzzy shot of Jared Leto referencing The Joker’s appearance in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke and another one showing off his bright green hair, but it's finally time to see the complete look because David Ayer just unveiled the very first Suicide Squad image of Leto in full costume as The Joker on Twitter. I expected something extreme, but I certainly wasn't imagining something quite like this. (Did The Joker have a grill in the source material?) Regardless, this shot is definitely striking to say the least and also has me believing the guy is an absolute lunatic, which is clearly a step in the right direction. However, it wasn't Heath Ledger's hair, makeup and wardrobe that sold the character in The Dark Knight. It was his insanely committed, haunting performance and Leto's certainly got his work cut out for him if he's going »

The Flash: New Promo Teases Final Showdown with Reverse Flash

24 April 2015 5:50 PM, PDT

The secret is officially out! After last week's episode "Who is Harrison Wells?", Team Flash is finally united in the knowledge that who Harrison Wells is isn't really Harrison Wells at all. When Cisco discovered the blueprints that led him, Barry and Caitlin to Dr. Well's super-secret lair of lies, the cat was out of the bag. And now it's time for the final showdown. With only four episodes left in the season, the time has come for Team Flash to confront the man that lied to them for so long and for Barry to exact justice on the man who killed his mother (and hopefully clear his father's name in the process). Trailer via The CW: Is it just me, or does that final shot of Reverse Flash look like it might be someone other than Tom Cavanagh? I detect a twist in our midst. And that's to be expected at this point. »

Poltergeist Featurette: Sam Raimi and Gil Kenan Talk Modernizing the Classic

24 April 2015 5:25 PM, PDT

Back when Poltergeist came out in the 80s, I was afraid of trees coming through my bedroom window and being attacked by braces, but now it's all about phones glitching and toys lighting up when they're not supposed to. The latest trailer for Gil Kenan's Poltergeist remake does suggest that the new iteration will be very reminiscent of the original, but there's certainly a few modern twists in the mix as well. 20th Century Fox just unveiled a brand new behind-the-scene featurette in which Kenan and producer Sam Raimi discuss making the material accessible to a modern audience. While I do get the need to throw in iPhones and other new tech that we use on a regular basis, it's still the more old school scares, like the clown attack and that poor girl being yanked up the stairs, that are the most effective. Check out the new Poltergeist »

The Dark Knight Returns 3: Frank Miller to Pen Conclusion to Comic Book Saga

24 April 2015 1:41 PM, PDT

Hot on the heels of the recent Batman v Superman trailer, DC Entertainment has announced the third and final installment of The Dark Knight Returns comic trilogy, The Dark Knight III: The Master Race. While a new installment of the saga of elderly Bruce Wayne was unexpected, it’s certainly no surprise that DC picked now as the time to reveal it, as the upcoming Zack Snyder film draws heavily from The Dark Knight Returns comic. Frank Miller will be joined on writing duties for the eight-issue comic book periodical by Brian Azzarello, who has written such comic book staples as 100 Bullets, Wonder Woman, and Batman. The Master Race will be published twice a month under the DC Comics imprint starting this fall. “Batman remains my favorite comic book hero and a sequel to Dark Knight is going to be daunting," said Miller, "but we’ll do our best.” [caption id="attachment_449523" align="alignright" width="320"] Image via DC Comics[/caption] »

Universal CinemaCon Video Blog Recap: Everest, Jurassic World, Crimson Peak, and More

24 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT

Universal Pictures was the final panel at this year’s CinemaCon. Most of the reporters in the room expected a lot of cool footage since the studio has tons of high profile pics coming like Steve Jobs, Ted 2, Pitch Perfect 2, Warcraft, Crimson Peak, Sisters, Everest, Trainwreck, Jurassic World, The Secret Life of Pets, Minions, and Straight Outta Compton. For the most part Universal did a fine job, but with no looks at anything in 2016 and not a frame of footage from Steve Jobs or Warcraft, I left the panel wanting more. However, what they did premiere looked great and I'm certainly impressed with a number of their upcoming movies. Like we’ve done for all the big CinemaCon panels, right after it ended I recorded a video blog with Peter from /film. Since he had to go right to the airport we tried to make my camera stand »

TV Performer of the Week: Matthew Rhys, The Americans

24 April 2015 12:57 PM, PDT

Even if Matthew Rhys hadn't had a standout performance in The Americans' Season 3 finale this week -- and, of course, he did -- I probably still would have bestowed him as the TV Performer of the Week, because he deserves to be named actor of the season. The Americans has always been an acting tour-de-force for Rhys his co-star and on-screen wife Keri Russell, though this season has truly belonged to Rhys' Philip, and to Rhys' dexterity as an actor. For those unfamiliar, The Americans is a show built on the idea and deconstruction of identity. Rhys and Russell play a pair of high-level Kgb spies developed specifically to infiltrate the United States in the 1970s and 80s, living as American citizens ("Philip and Elizabeth Jennings") while carrying out complex Soviet spy orders.

Tomorrowland: Over 100 Images from the Walt Disney Studios Special Exhibit

24 April 2015 12:17 PM, PDT

Walt Disney Studios and Disney Parks have teamed up to showcase a sneak peek of Tomorrowland, from director Brad Bird and screenwriter Damon Lindelof, with a special exhibit comprised of props, concept artwork and photos from the filming of the movie plus exclusive images from the Disney Archives. [caption id="attachment_396023" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Walt Disney Pictures[/caption] Tomorrowland is still pretty shrouded in mystery, and we’ve only been given glimpses into the world, but we do know that it’s about a former boy-genius inventor, named Frank Walker (George Clooney), and optimistic teenager Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) who, through a shared destiny, embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory. The premise that the futuristic city of Tomorrowland could actually exist pays homage to Walt Disney’s vision for both Tomorrowland at Disneyland Resort and Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort, »

New Barely Lethal Trailer Has a 90s Throwback Vibe

24 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT

A new Barely Lethal trailer for director Kyle Newman’s (Fanboys) upcoming action comedy has been released online. The film stars Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage assassin who’s a master of lethal techniques, but doesn’t quite want to live the life of a killer. She decides to fake her death and try being a normal high school student, but she can’t escape her training or old foes. This new official trailer isn’t terribly different from the previous international one, but what I like most about it is that the film reminds me of the kinds of teen-centric movies they made in the 90s. She’s All That, American Pie, and Can’t Hardly Wait may not be considered “high art” (though I’d argue Clueless most definitely is), but they’re a hell of a lot of fun. Those kinds of films are few and far »

20th Century Fox CinemaCon Video Blog Recap: The Martian, The Revenant, Joy, and More

24 April 2015 11:44 AM, PDT

For the second year in a row, 20th Century Fox punched CinemaCon in the face. Last year Fox screened tons of great looking footage from their 2014 films and I thought they had an incredible lineup that would do well. Little did I know they would set the worldwide box office record by breaking $5 billion dollars and taking home a number of Oscars. This year Fox did it again by world premiering tons of amazing footage from such films as Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Alejandro González Inarritu’s The Revenant, The Peanuts Movie, Victor Frankenstein, and David O.Russell’s Joy. In addition they also showed extended trailers and new footage from Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four, Hitman Agent 47, Paper Towns, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Spy, Poltergeist, and more. As I said, Fox brought the goods I was blown away by their lineup. Like last year, I’m interested »
