Gotham Season 1 Finale Recap: “All Happy Families Are Alike”

1 hour ago

If you were at all worried about Fish Mooney at the outset of this episode, don't be. She makes her triumphant return to Gotham in the show's season finale. With a new, albeit small and ragtag army at her side, Fish plans to finish what she started and claw her way to the top of the city's mob families. Standing in her way are Carmine Falcone, the aging kingpin of the city who is more interested in inspecting chickens than fighting wars; Sal Maroni, the up-and-coming mob boss with most of the muscle on his side; and Penguin, the slimy manipulator who's been playing both sides to his own ends. Oh, and yeah, the Gcpd gets involved at some point. Let's see how it all played out. [caption id="attachment_454085" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Fox[/caption] The mob war for control of Gotham has been the one consistent story arc throughout the series' first season »

Gotham Post-Season Finale Interview with the Cast and Showrunners

1 hour ago

The season finale for the Fox series Gotham saw some of the characters take dark turns when coming into their own, while others took far less defined paths. With Season 2 already being plotted, to go into production on June 22nd, you can rest assured that you will start to get answers and deeper character explorations when the show returns. With awards season in full swing, a recent event was held to screen the finale for voting purposes, and Collider was invited, along with a handful of other outlets, to speak to the talent in front of and behind the cameras about what to expect from the aftermath of this season’s events. Actors Ben McKenzie, David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova, along with executive producers Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and John Stephens talked about what secrets Bruce Wayne (Mazouz) might uncover about his family, just how dangerous Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) will be now, »

Mark Ruffalo Talks Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Hulk’s Future, and Now You See Me 2

2 hours ago

At the Los Angeles press day for Avengers: Age of Ultron, I landed an exclusive video interview with Mark Ruffalo. While I’ve already teased a few parts from the interview over the past few weeks, it’s finally time for the entire conversation. During our talk, Ruffalo discussed memorable moments from filming the Marvel sequel, the worst job he’s ever had, Hulk’s involvement in Captain America: Civil War, why we haven’t seen a new solo Hulk film, the future of Hulk in the McU, deleted scenes, Now You See Me 2, and a lot more. Finally, specific Age of Ultron plot points are talked about in the interview below. I advise not watching until you’ve seen the Avengers sequel. As usual, a time index of what was discussed is below the video.

Louis C.K. to Write, Direct and Star in New Movie I Am A Cop

3 hours ago

Great news! Comedic genius Louis C.K. (Louie) is making a movie. C.K., who has taken home five Emmys and a Peabody for his FX series Louie, will write, direct and star in I'm a Cop. Blair Bread, who is an executive producer on Louie and a number of C.K.'s standup specials, will produce the comedy alongside Scott Rudin and Dave Becky. I say Louis C.K. is a comedic genius with no hyperbole. He's utterly hilarious and has a gift for tackling painful or controversial subject matters in a way that is refreshingly candid and human, offering a little insight to human nature along with the uproarious laughter. His approach to comedy is both catholic and intimately personal at the same time. If I'm a Cop is anywhere near as good as Louie or any of C.K.'s standup segments, this is going to be a special film. »

Director Brett Morgen Talks Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck

5 hours ago

Note: This interview was originally conducted and posted at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. With Kurt Cobain: Motage of Heck premiering tonight on HBO, I decided to repost it. Back at Sundance 2008, director Brett Morgen (Chicago 10, The Kid Stays in the Picture) told me that he was going to make a mixed media documentary about Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. When we spoke he revealed that he’d have access to Cobain’s artifacts, journals, home movies, paintings, and his unheard music. As a fan of the troubled artist, I was ecstatic. Not only because a filmmaker whose work I appreciated was going to make the movie, but also because I knew I’d see a side of Cobain I had never seen. The only thing that brought me down was Morgen saying it would take at least four years. Since doing that interview, I’d been wondering what happened to that documentary. »

Tyrant Season 2 Trailer Shows “Blood Guarantees Nothing”

5 hours ago

I'll be quite honest: Tyrant being renewed for a second season was a huge surprise. Critically, it wasn't a hit (I gave up after about 4 episodes), but most viewers who started it did mostly stick with it, as ratings remained incredibly consistent. It's that consistency that FX is looking to hold onto with the series, which also suffered from early creative conflicts (including Ang Lee leaving the project, followed by the departure of Homeland's Gideon Raff, although Howard Gordon remained) that left it without a clear tone (at least to start). Sometimes it was decidedly lackluster, sometimes it was offensive, sometimes it was soapy, and sometimes its conflicting accents were just confusing. But if FX has faith in it, maybe it's time for the Tyrant lost to find it again. Judging from the Season 2 trailer, it shouldn't be too hard to pick up. The coup orchestrated by Barry Al-Fayeed »

The Magicians: TV Adaptation of Lev Grossman’s Fantasy Series Set at Syfy

5 hours ago

Following the success of some show called Game of Thrones, one of the more talked about fantasy book series that has been bandied about as a possible contender is Lev Grossman's The Magicians series. Grossman's novels center on Quentin Coldwater, a young man who heads into upstate New York to attend a super secret school for magic, where he becomes part of a league of powerful magicians; think Suny Hogwarts. Rumors about an adaptation became all the more louder when the concluding volume of Grossman's series, The Magician's Land, was published last summer to rave reviews and a firm landing at the top of the New York Times Best Sellers list. Well, the wait would seemingly be over, as Syfy announced today that they have put in a series order for an adaptation of Grossman's works. The decision was based largely off of the evidence of a produced pilot, »

Second Star Wars Spinoff Will Focus on Boba Fett

5 hours ago

The next Star Wars spinoff film will focus on the origin story of beloved bounty hunter Boba Fett.  According to The Wrap, while Gareth Edwards' Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will delve into the world of rebel fighters, the second Star Wars spinoff is about bounty hunters. Last week, Chronicle director Josh Trank left the film, and while he claimed in a statement that it was a personal decision, insiders say Disney was concerned that Trank showed “erratic behavior” during the production of his new film Fantastic Four. Personally, I thought giving Trank a Star Wars film based solely on Chronicle seemed like a huge show of trust, and Disney and Lucasfilm moved a little too fast on choosing him. This is opposed to Edwards, who had a huge hit with Godzilla before being hired to direct the first Star Wars spinoff.

Silence: First Images of Andrew Garfield in Martin Scorsese’s Spiritual Drama

5 hours ago

After more than twenty years of development Martin Scorsese is finally wrapping up production on his long-gestating spiritual drama, Silence. Based off the 1966 novel by Shusaku Endo, the film follows a pair of Jesuit missionaries (Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver) who travel to Japan to investigate claims of religious persecution and rumors that their beloved mentor (Liam Neeson) has abandoned the Church. Today, at a end-of-production press conference in Taiwan, Garfield talked about the challenging spiritual journey of his character. It’s a lifetime that the character of father Rodrigues goes through that we witness. It’s such an agonizing lifetime that he has to live through and yet he wrestles with the greatest and most important and difficult questions that we all wrestle with, which is how to live and how does one live a life of meaning, a life of faith, and does that require you to live in doubt as well? »

New X-men: Apocalypse Set Photo Reveals Cyclops and Havok’s Parents

6 hours ago

Filmmaker Bryan Singer continues to tease the in-production X-Men: Apocalypse today with another set image, this time also hinting at a world-ending event. After unveiling a first look at oh-so-80s versions of Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) and Jubilee (Lana Condor) last week, today’s photo gives us a look at the parents of Cyclops and Havok. This isn’t necessarily a groundbreaking reveal, but it is interesting to note that the two mutant characters will interact in some significant way in the film. Lucas Till reprises his role as Havok, aka Alex Summers, while Mud actor Tye Sheridan is being introduced in this movie as the younger iteration of Scott Summers, aka Cyclops. And of course there’s Singer’s caption that reveals Mr. and Mrs. Summers are watching “the end of the world as they know it” on their television in this set photo, so we can safely »

Will Poulter Is the New Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga’s It Remake

6 hours ago

True Detective filmmaker Cary Fukunaga is currently deep in pre-production on his next feature film, a two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel It, and now the first piece of casting has been settled. Variety reports that We’re the Millers actor Will Poulter has landed the role of Pennywise, a terrifying monster who lures children while dressed as a clown. Previous reports indicated that Ben Mendelsohn was being eyed to fill the role, but the fact that he’s now in talks to star in the Star Wars Anthology film Rogue One generated a scheduling conflict. Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall) was also considered, but New Line wanted to go younger with the role and Fukunaga reportedly couldn’t deny the power of Poulter’s audition.

Daredevil Recap: “Shadows in the Glass”

6 hours ago

New episodic recaps of Daredevil’s first season post on Mondays and Thursdays. You can read all previous installments here. Daredevil’s “Shadows in the Glass” begins with Wilson Fisk waking up to his usual morning routine: stare at the painting on his wall, make an omelet, pick out a suit for the day, put on favorite cufflinks, and see himself as a child covered in blood. Pretty creepy scene to start, that’s for sure! In this brief scene, we almost have to ask the question of how Fisk does get so big? In the comics, he’s actually covered in muscle, which I suppose could be the case here, though it’s alluded to later in the episode that Wilson comforts himself with food to deal with his pain, an unfortunate trait given to him by his mother. I think this could have been pushed forward a little »

John Wick 2 Gets Greenlight; Keanu Reeves and Directors to Return

6 hours ago

While I wish John Wick hadn’t been built up so much before I saw it, that’s no fault of the movie, and there are definitely places for a sequel to go. Lionsgate has announced that John Wick 2 has a greenlight, and that Keanu Reeves is set to return as the eponymous hitman alongside directors David Leitch and Chad Stahleski as well as screenwriter Derek Kolstad. Lionsgate will be selling the film’s international rights at Cannes this week. John Wick was a nice, relatively low-budget thriller that showed you could do a lot with some strong performances, cool premise, and well-choreographed action. According to Forbes the film “earned $78m worldwide off a $20m production budget. It also earned around $20m from digital platforms alone, as well as around $17m from DVD and Blu Ray sales.” It’s encouraging to see that studios are willing to go forward »

Tom Hardy Reveals Why He Dropped Out of Suicide Squad

7 hours ago

Last night, director David Ayer released the first full cast image for the DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad. The film revolves around a team of villains that are tasked with carrying out dangerous missions for the government in exchange for commuted sentences. The ensemble is certainly eclectic, with Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Jared Leto as The Joker, but the cast nearly had yet another incredibly talented actor onboard: Tom Hardy. Hardy was in talks to take on the role of Rick Flagg, the leader of the Suicide Squad, but he was subsequently forced to drop out over scheduling conflicts. Joel Kinnaman eventually took over the role, but when Steve recently spoke with Hardy at the press day for Mad Max: Fury Road, the actor discussed his fondness for the script and concept for Suicide Squad (Note: "alley" means "right up there with the best »

Is Elizabeth Banks going to wind up being an aca-mazing first-time feature director and deliver a Pitch Perfect sequel that's just as much of a blast as Jason Moore's original?

David Fincher’s 1980s-Set Music-Video Comedy Series Picked Up by HBO

8 hours ago

A number of top-tier filmmakers found their start in the business by helming music videos during the music-video boom of the 1980s and 1990s, but none of them have proved as consistently revelatory as David Fincher. With the hugely arguable exception of Alien 3, the man has only directed masterpieces and near-masterpieces, and House of Cards, his first stab at television, has proven hypnotically stylish, narratively inventive, and deeply funny through three seasons now. Now, Fincher is getting ready to move into comedy with a series based on his own experiences during the early days of the music-video boom in the 1980s, and HBO just announced that they have put a series order in for Fincher's television project, which has the working title of Video Synchronicity. [caption id="attachment_419636" align="alignright" width="352"] Image via Netflix[/caption] According to THR, the series revolves around Robby (Charlie Rowe), a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed college dropout who drives to »

The Last Man On Earth Finale Postmortem: The End As a Beginning

8 hours ago

With "Screw the Moon," The Last Man on Earth concluded its first season on Fox with mixed results. The post-apocalyptic series started off with a hugely bold and unique premise that was executed in a surprisingly cinematic way (especially for a comedy). Phil Miller (Will Forte) appeared to truly be the lone survivor of a mysterious illness that wiped out the rest of the planet. For that first episode, Phil dawdled around his hometown of Tucson, setting things on fire and crashing through storefronts, allowing Poe's "Imp of the Perverse" to run wild. Because why not? That nihilistic spirit, though, eventually led him to attempt suicide after the weight of his loneliness really settled in, but he was stopped by the show's first big reveal: a second person. [caption id="attachment_437509" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] From there, The Last Man on Earth began to change drastically. The revolving door of survivors became gimmicky »

With the battle between good and evil raging, and Gotham City’s gang war reaching its boiling point, the season finale of Fox’s Gotham will see Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) go head-to-head with Maroni (David Zayas) and Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), in an attempt to re-stake her claim on the city. Meanwhile, the two most important women in Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) life, Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) and Leslie Thompkins (Morena Baccarin) are brought together after recent events, and Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) searches Wayne Manor for anything that might point to answers about his father.

Bad Intel: How Did Early Avengers: Age Of Ultron Rumors Shake Out?

8 hours ago

We can profess to hate spoilers, but if everyone truly did, we wouldn’t bother asking about the next movie and teaser culture wouldn’t be thriving. Everyone has differing preferences for how much they want to know, but there are plenty of people trying to dig up as much info as they can because we want to be in the know, but not know too much. There was plenty of digging for Avengers: Age of Ultron pretty much from the moment the fire began to die down on The Avengers. I’ve looked back through our archives and traced how the rumors and information we received turned out now that the highly anticipated sequel has finally arrived. Read on for what turned out to be true or false. This article contains major spoilers for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Every item follows The Avengers, which was released on May 4, 2012. September »
