Fox Cancels The Mindy Project, But Hulu Might Bring It Back

7 hours ago

The impending wave of renewal and cancellation confirmations coming from the TV upfront presentations (where networks present their schedules for advertisers) has started early, and with a surprise. Despite it getting into sweet syndication money territory after three seasons, Fox has decided to cancel The Mindy Project. This isn't perhaps a huge surprise, since the show has struggled in the ratings from the start, although it's always held fairly steady even with its low numbers (showing that it has a dedicated fanbase). [caption id="attachment_241261" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] That fanbase is what Hulu may be hoping to reach if it decides to revive the series, which according to THR, it is in talks to do. Hulu has been making a big push regarding original content recently, as reported in our story about it developing a fantasy series with Legenday, based on the 1990s computer game Myst. But, since Hulu already owns the streaming rights to Mindy, »

Arrow Recap: “This Is Your Sword”

8 hours ago

Let's start things off in the recent past in Hong Kong, shall we? The Yamashiros rush an afflicted Akio to a nearby pharmacy with the hopes of quelling his fever. He tries to swallow down some Ibuprofen with a mouthful of blood as Tatsu sings to him. Maseo and Oliver head after Shrieve in the hopes of finding a cure. Oliver brings out his inner killer as they storm the base. They demand the cure from Shrieve, who tries to explain world politics and economies before Maseo shoots him. He offers up the cure and they take him along to show them how to administer it. By the time they reach the pharmacy, Akio is already dead. Shrieve played them, revealing that there's no cure. Instead, Shrieve turns the tables and captures them.

Beverly Hills Cop 4 Pulled From Paramount’s Release Schedule

8 hours ago

Paramount has removed Beverly Hills Cop 4 from their release schedule. The film chronicling he further adventures of Detective Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) was set to hit theaters March 25, 2016, but The Wrap is reporting that the project has been delayed indefinitely. Brett Ratner is set to direct the sequel, with Jerry Bruckheimer returning as producer. While Paramount may be making moves to avoid going head-to-head with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the box office, the fact that there's no replacement release date indicates a deeper issue. Most likely, the delay is due to script concerns. Back in January, Murphy made it very clear that he's not going to touch a Beverly HillsCop sequel until the script is in perfect form. [caption id="attachment_92586" align="alignright" width="320"] Image via Paramount[/caption] Murphy told Rolling Stone: “They’re still trying to get that script right. I’m not doing a Beverly Hills Cop unless they have a really incredible script. »

The character debuted in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent ordered to protect Cap who turned out to be a trustworthy ally.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks Avengers: Age Of Ultron Spoilers, Joss Whedon, and More

9 hours ago

If you have not seen Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, stop reading this article. Massive spoilers about the film are discussed in this interview. You’ve been warned. At the Los Angeles press day for the Avengers sequel, I landed an exclusive video interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Since I knew I’d be posting the interview after the film had been released, I decided to use part of my time to talk spoilers (specifically what happens to Quicksilver in the film). As you can see in the video below, Taylor-Johnson talks about how early he knew what would happen to his character, how they shot an alternate ending with Quicksilver joining The Avengers in order to keep his death secret, deleted scenes (describes an action sequence in which Quicksilver ran around Thor, who was on fire, in order to put him out), script changes, Godzilla 2, upcoming projects, and more. »

Ricki And The Flash Trailer Has Meryl Streep Rocking Out

9 hours ago

Sony Pictures has released the first Ricki and the Flash trailer. Meryl Streep stars as a musician who abandoned her family when she was young in order to seek fame in California. Years later, she returns home and attempts to resume her role as a mother. The cast also includes Kevin Kline as Ricki’s ex-husband, real-life daughter Mamie Gummer as her fictional daughter, and Rick Springfield, who plays a Flash member in love with Ricki. With Academy Award winning director Jonathan Demme at the helm, a screenplay by Oscar-winning Juno scribe Diablo Cody, and umpteen winner/nominee Streep in the lead, this movie has a fairly formidable amount of pedigree. My primary interest was in seeing the return of Demme to the director's chair given that he hasn't helmed a major feature film in quite a few years, but watching this first trailer I'm reminded of one thing that »

Hail Caesar! Character Details Revealed: Channing Tatum Is a Wannabe Communist

10 hours ago

Filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen's next film, Hail Caesar!, has been in the works for years and will finally hit theaters February 5, 2016, but details are still scarce. We know the story revolves around a challenging day in the life of a Hollywood "fixer" who works to protect the stars of the 1950s studio system. Like all of the Coen Brothers' films, Hail Caesar! is led by an incredible ensemble cast that includes Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill. The film will also feature a cameo from action star Dolph Lundgren, who recently spoke about his time on set in an interview with Creative Screenwriting. Lundgren spilled some details about his cameo, and a little bit about Tatum's role too. It was a bit of a shocker. They called me out of nowhere a few months ago. It’s a movie »

Writer-Directors Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul Talk The D Train

11 hours ago

One of my favorite films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival was first time directors Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul’s dramedy The D Train. The movie stars Jack Black as a desperate man trying to organize a high school reunion who courts a former classmate (James Marsden) in the hopes that his celebrity (he starred in a national commercial) may be enough to draw in other alums. While I could go into the specifics of why you should seek out this movie, I’d be giving away some of the film's secrets. Just trust me when I say The D Train is a great twist on the typical high school reunion movie and it’s worth your time and money. It also stars Kathryn Hahn, Jeffrey TamborMike WhiteKyle BornheimerHenry Zebrowski, and Russell Posner. The film opens in limited release this weekend. At the Los Angeles »

Alternate History: What If George Miller’s Justice League Wasn’t Cancelled?

13 hours ago

[Alternate History is a new feature in which we take a closer look at some of the bigger “What Ifs” of the movie world.] Marvel and DC have been at war for decades. But whereas most of their previous battles took place in the pages of comic books, the new front is now the world of mega-budget superhero movies, and Marvel has a very, very big lead. DC—by way of its home at Warner Bros.—is currently in “catch up” mode, hoping to explode its own interconnected universe of films with next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, whose very title makes clear the fact that it’s a prelude to a two-part Justice League event. But things almost turned out differently on the DC side. Very differently. In 2007, following the success of Batman Begins and the disappointment of Superman Returns, Warner Bros. was unsure how to proceed with its bevy of comics properties. Christopher Nolan was developing what would become The Dark Knight, but WB was noodling around with the »

Christoph Waltz to Direct and Star in The Worst Marriage In Georgetown

13 hours ago

Christoph Waltz will direct and star in The Worst Marriage in Georgetown, marking the Academy Award-winning actor's feature directorial debut. Per Variety, David Auburn's (Proof) script is based on a New York Times Magazine article by Franklin Foer about Albrect Muth (Waltz), "an eccentric social climber who seduced and married a wealthy older widow, Viola Drath." Muth falsified his background and became a prominent social figure in the upper echelons of Washington, D.C.. The couple hosted opulent parties and events in their home, which were attended by D.C.'s political elite. When Drath was found dead, Muth's lies were uncovered and he was put on trial for the murder of his wife. Production will begin on October 15, 2015 with Voltage Pictures on board to fully finance and produce the picture. In addition to directing and acting, Waltz will produce alongside Erica Steinberg (Inglorious Basterds) and Voltage’s Nicolas Chartier. »

Saint Laurent: Director Bertrand Bonello Discusses His New Biopic

13 hours ago

Bertrand Bonello explores the visual, romantic, and Viscontian facets of legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent’s (Gaspard Ulliel) life and career in his unconventional biopic, Saint Laurent. The story unfolds in the powerful decade between 1967 and 1976, when sweeping changes are underway in the fashion world and Saint Laurent is building his empire, before shifting to the late 1980s as the industry enters a new era.  Bonello’s decision to shoot in 35mm lends a voluptuous visual sophistication to the colors, textures and fabrics that make up the flamboyant artist’s creative universe. Jérémie Renier, Louis Garrel, and Helmut Berger play supporting roles. In an exclusive interview, Bonello talked about what inspired him to make the film, his collaboration with co-writer Thomas Bidegain, how he refined a long and complicated story into what became the heart of the movie, casting the right actors for each part, why it was important »

The Last Man On Earth Season 2 Lands Dan Sterling as New Showrunner

14 hours ago

Changes are afoot for the Fox comedy series The Last Man on Earth. Will Forte served as creator, executive producer, writer, star, and showrunner throughout the first season’s 13-episode run, but fresh off a season two renewal, the folks at Deadline report that a new showrunner is stepping in to lighten the load. Dan Sterling—whose TV producer credits include The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Sarah Silverman Program, and the final season of The Office—has signed on as executive producer and showrunner for The Last Man on Earth’s second season. He joins existing executive producers Forte, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller on the series. The unique concept for Last Man on Earth got off to a stellar start with glowing reviews, but it took an unexpected turn a few episodes in that saw Forte’s protagonist turn into the semi-villain of his own show, while »

Critics’ Choice TV Award Nominations Spotlight Justified, Silicon Valley, and More

15 hours ago

Ah, the Critics' Choice Awards. Or more accurately, "what you wish the Emmy nominations looked like." Like the Emmys, HBO features heavily in the list this year (27 nominations), but unlike the Emmys, so does the very deserving FX (16 nominations). Even the CW gets a look-in here, along with individual and fantastic series like Wolf Hall (PBS) and Rectify (Sundance). The list may still not be perfect, but it's pretty darn close. The 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, held by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will be broadcast live on May 31st at 8 p.m. on A&E. Check out the full list of nominees below: Best comedy series Broad City (Comedy Central) Jane the Virgin (The CW) Mom (CBS) Silicon Valley (HBO) Transparent (Amazon) Veep (HBO) You’re the Worst (FX) [caption id="attachment_410423" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] Best actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson, Blackish (ABC) Chris Messina, The Mindy Project (Fox) Jeffrey Tambor, »

New Human Centipede 3 Trailer Is Weird, Gross

15 hours ago

IFC Midnight has released a new trailer for The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), and it’s predictably unsettling. Director Tom Six returns to complete his franchise with a prison-set story that finds Dieter Laser from the first film and Laurence R. Harvey from the sequel banding together to create a 500-person centipede out of prison inmates. As you can see in the trailer, the film takes place in a world in which Six’s first two Human Centipede movies also exist. The characters get the idea to create the prison centipede from watching those films, so I guess this third installment will be fairly self-referential. I’ve never seen a Human Centipede movie and I don’t necessarily plan to, but I guess if Six is still making these movies, there’s gotta be people still watching them. Catch the new Human Centipede 3 trailer below via IFC Midnight. The film »

Powers Nabs Second Season Order from Sony

16 hours ago

Sony has ordered a second season of Powers, their first stab at original programming via Playstation Plus, according to THR. The fantastical series, which follows the exploits of two detectives assigned to handle cases involving super heroes and villains, has received largely mixed reviews from its first season, with many critics finding the tone of the show too erratic and noncommittal. Based on Brian Michael Bendis' classic graphic novel of the same name, Powers may not have its feet on the ground quite yet as a series, but that's exactly what season 2 will likely set out to rectify. In fact, there's an increasing trend in modern network and streaming series that suggests that a series doesn't reveal its true colors until the second season is a go. Heck, Parks and Recreation was entirely hit-and-miss until the end of season 2, when Adam Scott and Rob Lowe settled into their respective roles. »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: J.J. Abrams Talks Cutting References to Original Trilogy

16 hours ago

We’ve already shared that cover shot of Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Chewbacca and Bb-8, the first look at Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, an image of Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, one of Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and another of Lupita Nyong’o doing some motion capture work for her character, Maz Kanata, but there’s still more coming out of that Vanity Fair spread. The Playlist just shared some quotes from director J.J. Abrams regarding references made to the original Star Wars trilogy in Star Wars: The Force Awakens: “... we’ve obviously had a lot of time [during the development process] to talk about what’s happened outside of the borders of the story that you’re seeing. So there are, of course, references to things, and some are very oblique so that hopefully the audience can infer what the characters are referring to. We used to have »

Tuesday TV Ratings: The Flash Dips Slightly, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Steady

16 hours ago

The Tuesday TV ratings for May 5th are in; here are some of the highlights: At 8 p.m., CBS's NCIS matched last week's ratings in the key 18-49 demographic with a 2.0 and 14.24 million viewers, helping CBS win the night among overall viewers. NBC's The Voice was down to a series low 1.9 rating, but it still allowed the peacock network to tie with CBS in the ratings race for the night. The Voice also brought in 8.75 million viewers. Dancing with the Stars was down three tenths to a 1.4 rating and 10.13 million viewers on ABC. [caption id="attachment_447325" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via the CW[/caption] The return of Grodd on The Flash didn't give it much of a ratings bump, as the series was actually down a tenth to a 1.4 rating and 3.64 million viewers (still very good numbers for the CW). The NCIS franchise continued to dominate at 9 p.m. with NCIS: New Orleans winning the hour »

New Magic Mike Xxl Trailer Piles on the Sexual Innuendo

17 hours ago

Warner Bros. has released a new Magic Mike Xxl trailer for the upcoming sequel. Gregory Jacobs takes over the director’s chair from Steven Soderbergh this time around, as Channing Tatum’s titular character and his buddies hit the road for one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach. While it appears like the sequel may have done away with the American Dream subtext of the original, the movie also looks like it's plenty of fun, and the trailer does a good job of pumping up the hype.  Blockbusters may provide plenty of explosions, but that doesn't mean Magic Mike Xxl won't be explosive.  The cast is clearly having a blast, and I hope that carries over into the full film. Watch the new Magic Mike Xxl trailer below. The film also stars Joe ManganielloMatt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett Smith, Donald Glover, Andie MacDowell, and Michael Strahan. »

Hulu and Legendary are Developing a Myst TV Series

17 hours ago

We have to go back to the island! No, not the Lost island, Myst. Although, you'd be right to consider the similarities. But Myst! Yes, the first superstar computer game, which landed in 1993 and blew everyone's minds at the time. Now, according to Deadline, Cyan World's mysterious, gorgeous, and sometimes incredibly creepy puzzle game may (finally) become a TV series on Hulu, with a script-to-series commitment. The project will come from Legendary Television, producer Matt Tolmach (The Amazing Spider-Man), and writer Evan Daugherty (Divergent). [caption id="attachment_454761" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Cyan Worlds[/caption] This project is interesting for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's a hugely different thing for Hulu to be attempting. The streaming platform is mostly known for acquiring second-run (though great!) British series, or developing original comedies. A fantasy drama of this scale (along with some of its other recent projects from the likes of J.J. Abrams, Amy Poehler and others »
