Wednesday TV Ratings: An Empire-less Night for Fox Put Survivor, CBS on Top

29 minutes ago

The Wednesday TV ratings for March 25th are in; here are some of the highlights: TV viewership was down by 5% overall for the night, as most scripted series saw big drops. Were those all viewers fans of Fox's Empire who now aren't watching other broadcast series (and then some?) Fair enough. Empire has left a giant ratings hole since its finale last week, it seems, which put CBS back on top for the night in both they key 18-49 demographic, as well as with viewers overall. To kick things off at 8 p.m., Survivor won its hour with a 2.2 rating and 9.52 million viewers. Fox's American Idol, also at 8 p.m., is definitely missing Empire. It was down to a 1.7 (from a 2.4 last week) and 8.34 million viewers, coming in third for the night after ABC's The Middle, which eked out a win over the singing competition with a 1.8 rating and 7.24 million viewers. »

Ned Rifle Review | SXSW 2015

1 hour ago

It’s been about 17 years since Henry Fool hit theaters, but the time has finally come for writer-director Hal Hartley to wrap up the trilogy. Whether or not you go into Ned Rifle with a connection to the characters, there is some fun to be had with the material, but knowing what the group experienced in prior films will undoubtedly enrich the experience. However, on the other hand, Hartley did kick off the series with an eccentric yet thoughtful character journey so there’s no overlooking the fact that Ned Rifle feels more like playtime in an unnecessarily heightened version of the world he established in the first installment. Liam Aiken leads as Ned Rifle. When his mother, Fay Grim (Parker Posey), is convicted of treason and given a life sentence, Ned is sent to live with Reverend Daniel Gardner (Martin Donovan) and his family. Four years later, Ned turns »

Ray Donovan Season 3 Adds Aaron Staton, Fairuza Balk to Cast

1 hour ago

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series. Earlier this year, Fairuza Balk (Almost Famous) joined »

A Downton Abbey Movie Could Follow After Season 6

1 hour ago

Last week, word came that the ever-popular (and ever-fanciful) Downton Abbey will be coming to an end after the upcoming Season 6. Some fans may have been upset by the news, but it didn’t exactly come out of the blue. Ratings and Downton fervor have been down a bit in recent seasons as cast members have begun exiting the ITV/PBS program. Moreover, while it’s the norm in the U.S. to go on for as long as possible, six seasons of a TV series is almost unheard of in the UK—most run for two, three seasons max. [caption id="attachment_412984" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via PBS[/caption] Downton Abbey executive producer Gareth Neame confirmed today that Season 6 will indeed be the show’s last, but he also revealed to E! Online that there could be life after the series wraps up, saying a Downton Abbey movie is not off the table: "Our position »

Alliances Are Formed in New Marvel’S Daredevil Images

2 hours ago

The premiere date of Marvel’s Daredevil is looming closer, and in anticipation of the Netflix series debut, Marvel has unveiled a pair of new images. The photos tease alliances that are formed in the series, “some for evil,” and “some for good.” Indeed we see Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin meeting with Wai Ching Ho’s Madame Gao, and then a very official lawyer-y meeting involving Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock and Deborah Ann Woll’s Karen Page, an “enigmatic young woman whose quest for justice sends her crashing into Murdock’s life.” I’m curious to see how the show balances Murdock’s day job as an attorney with his night job as a crime fighter. The difference between suited lawyer and masked vigilante is vast, so I imagine bridging that gap effectively will be key to the show’s success. We’ve seen quite a bit from »

Dope Trailer Is Down with Opp and Different Title Treatments

2 hours ago

Open Road has released a Dope teaser trailer that will tell you nothing about the film. The movie follow self-proclaimed 90s nerds Malcolm (Shameik Moore) and his friends Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) and Jib (Tony Revolori) who get caught up in a drug deal and must figure out how to recoup the money and stay alive. Although Dope has a promisining first act with unique characters, it eventually falls into being a Risky Business clone. However, the pacing of the film may have been fixed. The reported runtime [via The Film Stage] has been cut down from 115 minutes to 104 minutes, so perhaps that will help with the unwieldy story, although I don’t see how it can solve certain elements that are engrained in the plot and setup. However, Dope’s not a bad film, and hopefully these cuts will make it a better one. Check out the Dope trailer below and click over to »

Exclusive: Gravity Blu-ray Diamond Luxe Special Feature Clip Goes into the Complex Rigs and Lighting

2 hours ago

Today, we’re pleased to debut a special feature clip from the upcoming Gravity Diamond Luxe Edition. The upcoming re-release will feature a Dolby Atmos sound mix and three new special features, and this brief clip highlights the special feature that goes into the complex rigging and lighting that made the space sequences come to life. While I know there are folks who are baffled as to why director Alfonso Cuaron put so much effort into new technology while eschewing scientific facts, I think that even those who didn’t like the film can appreciate the amount of effort that went into creating the groundbreaking visual effects. Check out the Gravity Blu-ray Diamond Luxe Edition special feature clip below and click here to pre-order Amazon.  The Blu-ray will be released on March 31st.

Jason Blum Talks Unfriended and Changes to Be Made Before the Release at SXSW

2 hours ago

Last year at SXSW I got to talk to Jason Blum about how he caught Oculus at the Toronto International Film Festival and helped get it out into the world and this year we got to have a similar discussion about his latest find, the Timur Bekmambetov-created project, Unfriended. The movie takes place entirely on Blaire’s (Shelley Hennig) computer screen. She starts up a video call with her friends, but there’s also an unknown Skype user in the chat, a Skype user who claims to be Laura Barns, a girl from their high school who committed suicide a year ago. If you caught my review and/or interview with writer Nelson Greaves and director Levan Gabriadze, you know that I think Unfriended is one heck of an accomplishment. It’s easily one of the most effective and natural depictions of computer usage on the big screen I’ve ever seen. »

Mickey Keating, Dean Cates, Brian Morvant and Giona Ostinelli Talks Pod at SXSW

3 hours ago

Writer-director Mickey Keating is back with his second feature film, Pod. It stars Dean Cates and Lauren Ashley Carter as Ed and Lyla, two siblings who get a disturbingly cryptic message from their brother Martin (Brian Morvant). Concerned about Martin’s well-being, they’ve got no choice but to drive out to their secluded family lake house to find out what’s going on. When they arrive, they’re shocked to find the home an unrecognizable mess. However, a disgusting kitchen and bizarre drawings all over the walls are nothing compared to what Martin insists is in their basement. While in Austin for the Pod world premiere at SXSW, I got to sit down with Keating, Cates, Morvant and composer Giona Ostinelli to talk about locking a location first and then building a story around it, Cates and Morvant’s first impression of the script and their especially intense characters, »

Danielle Brooks, Eden Brolin and Katie Cokinos Talk I Dream Too Much at SXSW

3 hours ago

It’s one thing to dream big, but it’s another to actually make the moves to attain your goals. After graduating college, Dora (Eden Brolin) is eager to travel the world, but she’s got no choice but to watch her friends go off without her while she stays at home studying for the Lsat. In an effort to spice things up a bit, she volunteers to head off to her Great Aunt Vera’s (Diane Ladd) estate to help her while she’s recovering from an injury. Trouble is, Vera’s sour attitude is a bit of a drag, so Dora spends most of her time encouraging her to get past decades of doubt and resentment, but, in turn, Dora does make quite the personal breakthrough herself. In honor of the I Dream Too Much world premiere at SXSW, Brolin, Danielle Brooks and writer-director Katie Cokinos sat down to discuss making the film. »

Izombie’s Rose McIver Talks Liv Moore, Favorite Season 1 Moments

3 hours ago

Based on the comic book of the same name, the quirky and deliciously fun new CW series iZombie follows Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver), as she navigates her life as a newly turned zombie. Being one of the newly undead, Liv has taken a job in the Seattle coroner’s office to satiate her urge to devour fresh human brains, but when she does so, she experiences visions from the point of view of the person she consumes and decides to use her new ability to help investigate and solve crimes.

New Orphan Black Season 3 Trailer Introduces Project Castor; Plus New Images

5 hours ago

First off, warning, this article contains major Orphan Black season 2 spoilers! We got an extended look at Ari Millen as Rudy (aka Scarface) in an Orphan Black season 3 clip the other day and now it’s time for a little Mark, Seth and Miller as well. BBC America just unveiled a brand new trailer titled “The Wolf Pack” that’s all about the male clones of Project Castor. Turns out, Rudy isn’t the only violent psychopath in the mix. All four military-raised clones have a serious mean streak. However, we are reminded of how Mark wraps up season 2, he marries Gracie (Zoé De Grand Maison) who’s carrying Helena’s (Tatiana Maslany) unborn child. Mark seemed to have turned a corner, but now that his clone status has been revealed, you’ve got to wonder, is he in it for the relationship or is he merely assigned to monitor the clone baby? »

Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell Talk Get Hard, Zoolander 2 and Ride Along 2

16 hours ago

Opening this weekend is Get Hard, the directorial debut of Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3 scribe Etan Cohen. The film stars Will Ferrell as a Bernie Madoff-type wealthy investment banker who enlists the man who washes his car (Kevin Hart) to help prepare him for a maximum-security prison sentence.  The film also stars Alison Brie, Craig T. Nelson, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Ariana Neal, and Edwina Findley Dickerson. For more on the film, watch the green and red band trailers. A few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. They talked about how the project came together, when they realized they would be a funny combination and that they would be able to work well together, the importance of listening in a scene instead of just waiting to say your line, Zoolander 2, Ride Along 2, and more. Here’s the interview »

The Americans Recap: “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?”

16 hours ago

I have to applaud The Americans -- and remember never to eat while I'm watching it -- for finding new ways to be shocking and sickening when it comes to death on TV. Violence fills the TV landscape, and while most of it is gratuitous and worse, boring, series like Banshee have managed to make their take on ultra-violence extremely visceral and messy. But, it can have a cartoonish vibe (like Sons of Anarchy did in many of its most famously disgusting scenes). Violence and death on The Americans, though, is often somberly horrific. Season Two was driven primarily by the bloody massacre of a family, while this season has featured some of the most brutal deaths (or corpse packaging) imaginable. It's not just that it happens, but how it happens. A man being set on fire is one thing, but to hear his inhuman screens as his lungs filled »

17 hours ago

Lea Michele and Kate Upton are teaming up with William H. Macy for his upcoming road trip sex comedy The Layover. Macy is set to direct and appear in the film from a script by David Hornsby and Lance Krall. The writing duo previously collaborated on the hilarious FX comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, on which Hornsby is a writer, producer and co-star. Macy previously directed the rock-n-roll drama Rudderless in 2014. Michele and Upton are set to play a pair of life-long friends whose dream vacation goes off the rails when their plane is rerouted due to a hurricane warning. While stuck in an extended layover in St. Louis, the pals find themselves competing for the same guy.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Director Sam Taylor-Johnson Will Not Return for Sequels

17 hours ago

Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson has officially split from the barely-bdsm franchise, and will not return to direct the sequels starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. This is expected news. Taylor-Johnson famously clashed with series creator E.L. James during production on the first film, and given the conditions James laid out in her contract, the author had the literal last word on the film. Further, James recently demanded to pen the script for the sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, which I imagine definitively squashed any desire Taylor-Johnson may have had to direct the sequel after her experience on the first film. Given the notorious conflict between the creators, today's news comes as a confirmation of what many have long-speculated. Taylor-Johnson commented on her departure to Deadline, Directing Fifty Shades of Grey has been an intense and incredible journey for which I am hugely grateful. I have Universal to thank for that. »

Arrow Recap: “Suicidal Tendencies”

17 hours ago

Arrow knows how to throw a wedding: short, sweet, and expensive. Ray Palmer, who attends the Diggle wedding with Felicity, not only ruffles Oliver's feathers as his former flame's date, but as the officiant of his best friend's ceremony.

Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal in Talks for Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals

18 hours ago

Yesterday, we reported that A-list fashion designer turned award-winning filmmaker, Tom Ford, finally signed on to direct his second film Nocturnal Animals. Unsurprisingly, the project has swiftly drawn the attention of some of today's best working actors. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to join Ford's adaptation of the Austin Wright book Tony and Susan. THR reports that Joaquin Phoenix and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also being pursued for lead roles. The story-in-a-story follows two narratives: the first centers on a woman named Susan who receives a manuscript called "Nocturnal Animals" from the ex-husband she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion on his book; the second follows the story of the book itself, about a man whose family vacation turns deadly. As the two narratives intertwine, Susan finds herself reflecting on her first marriage and facing some dark truths about herself.

Ben Mendelsohn Circling Star Wars Spinoff Rogue One

18 hours ago

Even if the films turn out to be terrible, it’s impossible to deny that Lucasfilm has been knocking it out of the park in terms of casting their Star Wars movies. Of course it helps when you have a property that everyone wants to be a part of, but the eclectic ensemble of Star Wars: The Force Awakens—with Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega and more set to occupy the same screen—is downright brilliant. Then the next Star Wars movie, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ spinoff Rogue One, started off on the right foot by casting Felicity Jones as the lead, and now it looks like the studio will continue its run with word that the phenomenal Ben Mendelsohn is mulling over joining Jones in the Rogue One cast. The folks at Deadline report that the Australian Animal Kingdom actor is “circling »

Robotech Movie Heads to Fast Track at Sony

19 hours ago

Back in February we reported that Hollywood Gang, a production company on the Warner Bros. lot run by Mark Canton and Gianni Nunnari had obtained the rights to the long-in-development Robotech movie and wanted Mama‘s Andy Muschietti to develop (and perhaps direct) the film. At the time I was guessing that Robotech would stay at Warner Bros. but now Deadline is reporting that the film has moved to Sony and is now on the fast track there since they see it as a potential franchise. Doug Belgrad, Michael De Luca and Matthew Milam will shepherd the Robotech movie at the studio. De Luca commented: "Robotech is unique in that it has always been a marriage of spectacle with human characters that seem drawn from life. That’s why we are so excited to be working with Mark and Gianni as we move forward on this project.  With a history »
