Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q Talk Stalker, Their Characters, Going to the Dark Side, and More From the Show’s Set

26 minutes ago

The new CBS drama series Stalker is a psychological thriller about detectives who investigate stalking incidents, including voyeurism, cyber harassment and romantic fixation.  Lt. Beth Davis (Maggie Q) is strong, focused and an expert in the field, driven by her own traumatic personal experience as a victim. When Detective Jack Larsen (Dylan McDermott) transfers to the Unit from New York City’s homicide division, his strong personality and questionable behavior may actually prove to be a valuable asset in this line of work. The show shoots at Warner Bros. Studios, on a set that’s raised up off of the ground to simulate an upper floor in a high-rise building where the Threat Assessment Unit of the Lapd is located, and Collider was invited, along with a handful of other press, to check it all out and chat with the series stars.  During the interview, co-stars Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott »

Watch the American Horror Story: Freak Show Opening Credits

41 minutes ago

The American Horror Story: Freak Show opening credits have arrived, and they just might be the best ones yet.  This season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck’s horror anthology series takes place in 1950s Florida and revolves around a traveling freak show overseen by Jessica Lange.  As Perri pointed out with regards to yesterday’s clown-infused trailer, this season appears to be brimming with vibrant imagery, and these opening titles are no different.  They’re done almost completely in an animation style that is likely computer generated but made to look like stop-motion, and the music is a playful twist on the Ahs theme.  There are a number of oddities and creatures to be found, and as with every season of Ahs, these titles are surely filled with plenty of hints with regards to where the season may be going.

Tuesday TV Ratings: Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Falls to Series Low; Selfie Falters in Debut

59 minutes ago

TV ratings for Tuesday, September 30th are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights: ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not doing great.  The second episode of the show’s second season (read Evan's recap here) garnered a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 4.54 million viewers, notching a series low for the Marvel show.  On the bright side, there’s always the possibility that it could receive a jolt in viewership after its midseason break following the debut of Agent Carter, but there’s no guarantee that show will be a hit either. Elsewhere on ABC, the series premiere of the awfully-titled Selfie scored a 1.4 rating in the demo and 4.89 million viewers.  Despite the cringe-worthy premise, our own Allison Keene thought the pilot episode was saved by its solid cast.  Those debut numbers on down considerably from the 3.0 rating that The Goldbergs nabbed in its post-s. »

New The Mule Trailer Will Turn Your Stomach

1 hour ago

Ever since catching Tony Mahony and Angus Sampson’s The Mule at SXSW, I’ve been describing it as a “you’ve got to see it to believe it” type of film, but this new trailer actually does a solid job of recreating how unsettling and gut-wrenching the full feature can get.  Sampson leads as Ray Jenkins, a nice guy who gets suckered into swallowing bags of drugs and trying to smuggle them across the border.  Sure enough, he gets caught and that’s when the fun starts.  Ray refuses to admit that he’s got narcotics in his stomach, so the authorities have no choice, but to wait it out.  They confine Ray to a hotel room and keep an eye on him day and night, waiting for the contraband to come out. I watch a lot of horror movies loaded with carnage where people get torn apart, but »

Find Out Where You Can See Interstellar in 70mm IMAX and 35mm

1 hour ago

It’s no secret that Christopher Nolan is a very big proponent of film as opposed to digital.  His preference goes beyond the shooting of the movie to the actual projection, and not unlike Quentin Tarantino, Nolan very much prefers that you see his movies projected on film.  Today, Paramount released the final trailer for Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar and also confirmed what we heard last night, which is that the film will be opening two days early on 75mm IMAX and 35mm screens.  That means if your local theater has converted to digital projectors both in their regular theaters and IMAX, you’ll have to wait two more days to see the film.  It’s kind of a shame since most theaters across the country have converted to digital—especially in the middle of the country, where digital projection is cheaper to maintain—but it’s nice to »

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Franco Talk Real-Life Inspiration, Improvisation, Franco’s Instagram, and More on the Set of The Interview

1 hour ago

Last year when directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were filming The Interview (their directorial follow up to This is The End) in Vancouver, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters.  As most of you know from the extremely funny red and green band trailers, James Franco plays a vapid talk show host who, along with his producer Aaron Rapoport (Rogen), lands an interview with Kim Jong-un (Randall Park).  But their attempt at hard news gets upended when the CIA asks the duo to assassinate the North Korean leader. During a break in filming, I participated in a group interview with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Franco.  They talked about how the project came together, pulling from real-life inspiration, improvisation, Franco's Instagram, how they wanted to do things people don’t usually do in comedy and "abandon how comedies look as much as we possibly could, »

20 Things to Know About Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s The Interview From Our Set Visit

1 hour ago

Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) and Dave Skylark (James Franco) are inside a tank in North Korea talking about Katy Perry and margaritas.  They're debating if drinking fruity margaritas and loving Katy Perry's music means you're gay.  After saying the lines a few different ways, directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg call out a few new ways to say the dialogue and I erupt with laughter.  And I'm not alone.  The other reporters I'm with on the Vancouver set of The Interview are also laughing out loud.  So much so that after the take ends, an assistant director comes in the room where we're watching playback and says they can hear us laughing on set.  While I'm sure they were mad at us for possibly ruining a take, I'm sure it made them happy to know they were making comedy gold.  While I've done a lot of set visits, I've »

The Water Diviner Trailer and Poster: Russell Crowe Directs and Stars in Australian World War I Drama

2 hours ago

The first The Water Diviner trailer and poster have been released for Russell Crowe’s feature directorial debut.  The story centers on an Australian man (Crowe) who travels to Turkey in an attempt to discover the fate of his three sons, who were fighting in World War I.  While I was afraid the film might feel a bit like a vanity project, this trailer is actually pretty good.  There are surprisingly few films that revolve around the horrors of The Great War, and this Australia-focused story provides an interesting point of view for what was truly a World war.  Crowe appears to be pretty confident behind the camera, and he’s filled his cast out with plenty of Australian actors.  Color me intrigued. Hit the jump to check out the Water Diviner trailer and poster.  The film also stars Olga KurylenkoJai Courtney, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, »

2 hours ago

We haven’t heard much about the Angry Birds movie in a while, but over the past 48 hours, fans of the Angry Birds game have been busy unlocking the voice cast of the film by slinging one billion birds.  Apparently one billion birds have been slung because Rovio just revealed the full line-up. Angry Birds will feature the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph and Peter Dinklage.  Hit the jump for more on who they’re playing.  Angry Birds is set to hit theaters on July 1, 2016 and will mark Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis’ directorial debut. Sudeikis is on board to play a character named Red, a bird with some anger issues.  Gad is the speedy bird, Chuck.  McBride’s Bomb is described as volatile.  Hader’s character isn’t given a name, but the release says that he’s “joined the pork side. »

New Interstellar Trailer Says Goodbye to Our Solar System

2 hours ago

We’ve been loading up on Interstellar promotional material lately and Paramount just topped it all off with an especially riveting new trailer.  Matthew McConaughey recently described the film as “the grandest adventure I think any of us will ever see on film,” and based on what we get in this promo, I’m inclined to agree.  We've been trying to put the pieces of the narrative together since day one and even though this trailer answers more questions and reveals more story information than ever, it winds up sparking so much more curiosity and intrigue in the process.  We caught a glimpse of it in one of those new TV spots, but the detail that still catches my eye is that robot walking around the planet with McConaughey's character and his team. Hit the jump to check it out for yourself in the brand new Interstellar trailer.  The film »

New The Theory Of Everything Trailer: Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones Impress as Stephen and Jane Hawking

2 hours ago

Focus Features has released a new The Theory of Everything trailer for director James Marsh’s (Man on Wire) biopic of genius physicist Stephen Hawking.  The film stars Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) as Hawking, chronicling his budding relationship with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wide (Felicity Jones), heartbreaking motor neuron disease diagnosis at the age of 21, and groundbreaking scientific work in the field of time.  I caught the film at Tiff and it's one of my favorite films of the year.  Led by phenomenal performances by Redmayne and Jones, The Theory of Everything will definitely be a player in awards season and I strongly recommend seeing it for yourself when it opens November 7th. Hit the jump to watch the new The Theory of Everything trailer, and click here to read Phil’s review from Tiff and here’s my video interview with Felicity Jones.  The film also stars David Thewlis, »

Exodus: Gods And Kings Preview; 30 Minutes of Footage Reveals Epic Scope

3 hours ago

Last night I drove down to Fox to attend a special preview of footage from director Ridley Scott's upcoming biblical epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings.  While I can't really offer any opinions on the film since what we saw was both incomplete and a relatively small snippet (around 30 minutes) of the overall experience, I will say that this film looks massive and that they got an impressive amount of ground covered in their relatively brief (for a movie of this scale) 72 day production.  The trailer that hit this morning covers some of this ground, but there's a lot more that you're not seeing. Scott's epic stars Christian Bale - who was there to answer a few questions - as Moses and Joel Edgerton as Rhamses.  Hit the jump to check out our Exodus: Gods and Kings footage preview.  The film also stars Ben KingsleyAaron PaulJohn Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver. »

New Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer: Christian Bale’s Moses Rises Up

3 hours ago

A brand new trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings just dropped and it’s far more comprehensive than the last one.  The film stars Christian Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses and chronicles what happens when Moses rises up and leads 600,000 slaves out of Egypt.  We’ll have our thoughts on the new trailer up shortly, but we wanted to make it available as quickly as possible. Hit the jump to watch the new Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer and click here to catch Evan's thoughts on the recent footage preview.  The film arrives in theaters on December 5, 2015 and also stars Ben KingsleyAaron PaulJohn Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.

Sons Of Anarchy Recap: “Poor Little Lambs”

3 hours ago

Sons of Anarchy's great wave of carnage continued in "Poor Little Lambs," but in between were a few reintroductions to great characters from the past (like Walton Goggins as Venus Van Dam, and the always great Kim Dickens as the hooker with a heart of gold, Colette).  There was also a 1990s revival.  Jax once again met with Ron Tully (Marilyn Manson) to work out a drug deal to offload some of that heroin he acquired, and Gemma dropped Abel off at his new school, where one of the teachers is played by Courtney Love (the horror!)  Hit the jump, beautiful people. At this point, it seems like Sons of Anarchy is just bringing back characters in order to kill them off.  Even aside from Colette, the two police officers we've seen in the background of scenes throughout the years, whose names are apparently Cain and Eglee, were shot »

Twisty the Clown Strikes in New American Horror Story: Freak Show Trailer

3 hours ago

We got a nice glimpse of all the main players in American Horror Story: Freak Show’s first trailer, but just wait until you see them in action.  This new 60-second promo offers up a significant amount of footage featuring Sarah Paulson walking around as conjoined sisters, Bette and Dot, Evan Peters as a “Lobster Boy” with an attitude, quite a bit of the world’s smallest woman, Jyoti Amge, and, perhaps best of all, our first good look at John Carroll Lynch as the season 4 villain, Twisty the Clown. Not only does the new preview continue to prove that a freak show is the ideal setting for the season, giving Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and their team license to go as big as they want, but it could also make Freak Show the series’ most beautiful season yet.  The footage here doesn’t just boast shock value; it looks good. »

Men, Women & Children Review

11 hours ago

[This is a re-post of my review from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.  Men, Women & Children opens today in limited release.] It’s comforting to view the Internet as a force. Things existed one way, the Internet came along, completely changed everything, and now—for better or worse—those things are barely recognizable. We’re all looking down, clacking into our smart phones, so the Internet must have transformed us, right? It’s just so powerful, and we were caught in its wake. Current communication technology has changed us, but Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children wryly, wisely, and astutely observes our fears and insecurities long preceded our smartphones. The film is a sharp commentary on the decay of intimacy as we, isolated in the cosmos, have now become isolated from each other. Woven together with well-crafted storylines, sharp performances, and convincing drama, Reitman’s latest film mostly avoids being a cautionary tale and instead provides an insightful look on how online communication changes our relationships but doesn’t define our lives. »

David Tennant Talks Gracepoint, Working on His American Accent, Possibility of Future Seasons, and More

12 hours ago

The Fox TV series Gracepoint, adapted from the British series Broadchurch, is a riveting 10-part mystery about the tragic murder of a young boy in a small northern California seaside town, and the major police investigation and media frenzy that ensue.  Leading the investigation is Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant), who works with Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) to solve a case that will upend the lives of the town’s residents. During this recent interview to discuss the similarities and differences of both shows, as he plays the lead in each, actor David Tennant talked about the complex combination of genres in telling this story, working on his American accent for the role, working with co-star Anna Gunn, that there could be future seasons of the American version, much like they’re already doing Series 2 in the U.K., playing each scene as it came, instead of focusing in »

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: “Heavy is the Head”

12 hours ago

Welcome back, true believers!  When last we left our band of wayward agents, the hidden artifact known as the Obelisk had been taken by Avengers-villain, Crusher Creel (aka the Absorbing Man).  The team lost one of their newest members apparently as Lucy Lawless’ Hartlay bit the bullet and was killed in the final minutes of the season premiere, though this is the Marvel universe and resurrections are fair game for any character.  Tonight, we’ll see the return of the mysterious “woman in the flower dress”, Raina, apparently seeking to help the team rather than inhibit them.  Will the team join their old foe in attempting to reclaim the Obelisk?  Will Fitz go even crazier in this episode?  Why oh why didn’t I make a joke about the Absorbing Man not being played by Nick Nolte during the last recap?  All this and more in the recap for the »
