'Flash' star Danielle Panabaker teases Caitlin flashback, Killer Frost and 'Arrow' crossover

2 hours ago

Vancouver, BC. The first few "Flash" episodes have been, for good reason, so Barry/Flash centric that we haven't had much time to get to know the S.T.A.R. Labs team supporting the nascent superhero. That changes in Tuesday (October 21) night's episode, "Things You Can't Outrun." While the episode finds Barry and the gang trying to stop the nefarious doings of yet another meta-human, it also takes us back to the night of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator accident, also known as the night that set the series' events in motion, also known as the night that Danielle Panabaker's Dr. Caitlin Snow lost fiancé Ronnie Raymond. "I’m so excited for the flashbacks," Panabaker gushed to reporters last week on a "Flash" location in Vancouver. "It’s a great thing to get to see Caitlin in her element. She’s a scientist and she »

The CW orders full seasons for 'The Flash,' 'Jane the Virgin'

2 hours ago

Hot on the heels of premieres that have set recent network highs and dramatically boosted time period averages, both "The Flash" and "Jane the Virgin" have been picked up for full seasons by The CW. Try not to look surprised. "The Flash" premiered two weeks ago and drew 6.1 million viewers in Live+3 DVR figures and delivered the network's highest-rated series premiere among adults 18-49 since the 2009 premiere of "The Vampire Diaries." The DC Comics adaptation slipped only slightly in its second week, averaging 4.27 million viewers and doing a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49 in Live+Sd ratings. While "Jane the Virgin" wasn't nearly as successful, the expectations weren't nearly as high for the telenovela adaptation, especially airing in the bleak wasteland that has been The CW's Monday. The "Jane" premiere drew 1.605 million viewers and did a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 in its Live+Same Day debut, drawing the most viewers »

FX cancels 'The Bridge'

2 hours ago

FX has canceled "The Bridge." Nearly three weeks after the crime drama's second season ended, FX announced they would not be moving forward with a third. That second season represented a major leap forward in quality from the first, but the ratings simply weren't there. The only real hope was that FX, which is about to say goodbye to several long-running series in "Sons of Anarchy" and "Justified," might simply need extra drama inventory, but the writing has seemed on the wall for a while. At the end of season 2, I asked showrunner Elwood Reid what his expectations were, and he said, "Creatively they are very happy with the show. But as we all know it is a numbers game. I really want a season three and hope I have a chance to keep telling those stories, because I can tell you I have just scratched the surface of this world and these characters. »

Shailene Woodley: 'It's American to not say how you're feeling.'

2 hours ago

Shailene Woodley has proven one talent time and again on the silver screen: She's an expert at portraying characters who are coping with unthinkable, devastating circumstances.  "I think it's amazing, our ability to put on a mask when internally we may be feeling something else," Woodley told us. "I also think it's very American to not actually say how you're feeling, versus in other places in the other world." Woodley, who wowed us in "The Descendants," "The Fault In Our Stars," and "Divergent," is yet another complicated protagonist in Gregg Araki's new haunting drama "White Bird in a Blizzard." As a confused teen whose mother leaves the family, Woodley has to convey strength, skepticism, and a lot of vulnerability. "I think it's more interesting to be a messy human being than to be a perfect human being," she said to us. "Because none of us is perfect. We're all so messy. »

Honest Trailers takes on the 'X-Men: 'Days of Future Past' epic retcon

3 hours ago

If you ever wondered if Hollywood hears fans when they say something was utter garbage, look no future than the latest “X-Men” movie to know they do. And sometimes, they even fix their mistakes. After the nonsense of “Last Stand” effectively killed the X-Men movie franchise, how could Fox ever repair the damage done to the cinematic universe? By completely retconning the Hell out of it in “Days of Future Past.” »

Drake and Internet sensation iLoveMakonnen hit the club in new 'Tuesday' video

3 hours ago

School nights mean nothing to Drake. In the new video for "Tuesday," his smooth, relaxing remix/collaboration with Atlanta-based R 'n' B newcomer iLoveMakonnen, Drake informs listeners that he "ain't go no muthaf*ckin' time to party on the weekend" (he's been busy recording "How About Now").  That's why the duo hit up a swanky club with loads of liquor, drugs, pretty girls (some wearing creepy "Eyes Wide Shut" masks), cool-looking dudes, and a ubquitous severed female mannequin head.  The clip also includes regular folks going about their busy lives outside of the party realm. Whether you go out in London, L.A., Rio, Hong Kong, Paris or points in-between, the message seems to be life is about having fun where you can get it.    Watch the video here: "Tuesday" is a remix of "Club Goin' Up on a Tuesday," which can be found on iLoveMakonnen's self-titled Ep, available now. »

Meryl Streep will sound dreadful alongside Hugh Grant in operatic ‘Florence’

3 hours ago

Florence Foster Jenkins was the William Hung of the early 1900s. An objectively awful opera singer convinced of her own melodious quality, Jenkins concertized across New York City at her wealthy family’s expense. People couldn’t look away. Staging elaborate shows in opulent costumes, Jenkins sang Vivaldi and Strauss for audiences keeling over from disbelief. Her earnest brand of cacophony became so revered, she was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in 1944, at the age of 76. Sound like the makings for a biopic? Well, get ready for Meryl Streep as Florence Foster Jenkins. Deadline reports that the “Iron Lady” Best Actress-winner will star alongside Hugh Grant in “Florence,” a dramatization of the New York heiress’ odd musical career. Though its high art trashiness sounds like the makings of a John Waters film, “Philomena” director Stephen Frears will helm the feature. Nicholas Martin (BBC's "The Indian Doctor”) wrote the script. »

Best Supporting Actor Oscar 2015: Contenders include J.K. Simmons, Edward Norton and Miyavi

3 hours ago

The Best Supporting Actor race is always a bit mercurial in the early stages but this year it seems positively volatile. The "unknown" factor is always pronounced when you can't draw a lot of conclusions based on role, etc., but in general this year, it seems like this race could go a number of different ways. Naturally, that's exciting. The supporting categories tend to be fertile ground for character actors to take root, and there are certainly more than a fair share of those in the mix (with the frontrunner being a prime example). There are major stars turning heads in smaller roles and even stars waiting to be born once audiences finally see their film. So click on through the gallery story below to see what we're thinking here at HitFix. At the end of the day, like a number of acting fields this year, it's an interesting cross-section »

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for 'The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014'

4 hours ago

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” Walters said she was done with the franchise after the 2013 edition. But ABC announced this morning that "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” will return Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 pm. Why hasn’t any new fall show been canceled yet? It’s unusual to have zero cancelations one month into the season. But this is an unusual season, and EW reports that one of the factors in the lack of cancelations is the lack of confidence in the midseason replacement shows. Plus: It’s hard to figure out what a hit is nowadays. Pop network orders its 1st scripted series: “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara The current TV Guide Network will transform into Pop, with a comedy about a rich family that loses it all in a Ponzi scheme and ends up living in a motel. »

The long history of MTV's 'Real World's' desperate twists

5 hours ago

Reality Blurred's Andy Dehnart looks at changes in MTV's Real World over its 30 seasons, discovering that the twists, gimmicks, and changes started early in the show's life, leading up to season 30's The Real World Skeletons. Monday, MTV announced that it will mark the milestone 30th season of the first modern reality show by calling it "The Real World Skeletons."  While those of us who grew up with "The Real World" are ancient compared to MTV's 12- to 24-year-old viewers, that is not a reference to its former fans. Instead, the subtitle refers to the cast members' pasts, which will literally haunt them by moving into the house. With "skeletons" involving bullying, pregnancy, and cast member being surprised by a dad he's never met, it seems like an insane, desperate, and ethically dubious twist. But as crazy as "The Real World: Skeletons" is, it's just another twist in a long »

Humane Society honors Darren Aronofsky for use of CG animals in ‘Noah’

5 hours ago

Remember when animal wranglers involved with “The Hobbit” movies revealed that Peter Jackson’s production resulted in the death of 27 animals? That did not sit well with the zoological protection organizations! If the Humane Society ran its own version of The Razzies, 2012’s “Unexpected Journey” would have picked up the award. Lucky for Team Hobbit, it doesn’t. In fact, after several recent cases of animal mistreatment (the death of three horses on the set of HBO’s “Lucky” comes to mind) the Humane Society turn the other cheek in 2014 and praise the people of Hollywood who are getting it right. The Wrap reports that Darren Aronofsky will be the first recipient of the the organization’s Filmmaker Award, for the “compassionate decision” to use CG animals in his March tentpole “Noah.” Aronofsky will earn his award at the Humane Society’s “To The Rescue! New York,” set for Nov. »

TV Ratings: 'Scorpion' survives 'The Millers,' 'Sleepy Hollow' rises and ABC, NBC split

5 hours ago

Fast National ratings for Monday, October 20, 2014. "The Voice" and "Blacklist" both dropped on Monday night, but still led NBC to victory among young viewers, while "Dancing with the Stars" carried ABC to overall victory.  In addition to NBC's drops, Monday also saw a less-than-impressive season premiere for CBS' "The Millers," plus another dip for Fox's "Gotham." But there was plenty of good news on Monday as well. "Sleepy Hollow," for example, rose week-to-week for Fox. And although it was dealing with a weaker lead-in thanks to "The Millers," CBS' "Scorpion" was encouragingly flat week-to-week in the key demo, though it dipped a little in viewers. The morning's best news, though, probably came on The CW, where "Jane the Virgin" rose in its second week, seemingly capitalizing on last week's well-received premiere. Of course, The CW had an NFL preemption in Houston, so stay tuned. ABC had the Pittsburgh football preemption, »

Matthew McConaughey wonders what the big deal is about 'Redskins' name

5 hours ago

Ahead of the release of "Interstellar," Matthew McConaughey gave an interview to GQ  as the cover story for the November issue. And what an interview it is! Hold on to your butts. McConaughey is not known as a humble dude. I mean, he thanked Himself during his Academy Awards acceptance speech for "Dallas Buyers Club." But this GQ interview is a whole 'nother level. In fact, it might be the most pretentious thing ever committed to digital ink. Even if it isn't, it still solidly places McConaughey as King of the Dudebros. Presented without comment, the four most "McConaughey" quotes from his talk with GQ. Nay. Perhaps the four most "McConaughey" quotes of all time.   “A man should always have his diary on him. That way he’s guaranteed to always have something incredible to read.” “I have good genes. My dad was an athlete. I got real fortunate with that. »

Kanye West, Haim, Charli Xcx recruited for Lorde-curated 'Hunger Games' soundtrack

6 hours ago

Lorde rounded out her all-star "Hunger Games" soundtrack quite nicely, with all-new contributions from Haim, Charli Xcx, Kanye West, Grace Jones, Bat For Lashes, Miguel, the Chemical Brothers and more. The New Zealand-bred Grammy Award winner was charged with curating the sounds for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1," and the resulting tracklist below. The song titles may not tell you much about what happens in the film, but they may help indicate at least a mood. We're extra curious about the "various" artist for ambiguous "Track 5" -- described as "an additional surprise track that will be revealed soon." Kanye West makes his mark on this set with a remix, of Lorde's previously released "Yellow Flicker Beat" (dubbed "Flicker"); Lorde also combined with Stromae, Pusha T, Q-Tip and Haim for a song called "Meltdown." The Chemical Brothers and Miguel collabarated, too, on "This Is Not A Game" (above »

Review: '30 for 30' presents the '70s Knicks in 'When the Garden Was Eden'

8 hours ago

During the Espn anniversary year that launched the "30 for 30" documentary series, one of the most interesting things about the films was how little they resembled one another. All were about sports (mostly), and all were about things that happened during the first 30 years that Espn was in business, but beyond that they felt completely distinct from one another, whether the narration-less video collage of "June 17, 1994," the kinetic energy of "Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. the New York Knicks," or the mournful quality of "The Two Escobars." As Espn has kept the series alive well past that anniversary year — including the brief stint when new films were presented under the "Espn Films Presents" banner — certain formulas have crept in, particularly when it comes to films about iconic teams. They're still fun, still full of great archival footage and wonderful memories from the team members in present-day, but movies like "The Fab Five, »

Michael Keaton to receive Santa Barbara film festival's highest honor

8 hours ago

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has announced the first of this year's many award recipients for the upcoming 30th anniversary edition of the event. They've kicked things off with their most prestigious honor, the Modern Master Award, and hey — when you've got a guy like Michael Keaton in the thick of an Oscar hunt, who better to receive such an accolade? The "Birdman" star will be honored with one of the festival's patented evening tributes on Jan. 31, 2015 at the historic Arlington Theatre. These are always wonderful affairs, deep dives into an artist's career with clip packages and the whole spiel. It's a stark contrast to other events that aim to get as much talent on and off the stage during a given event as possible, and with Keaton, there will be so much to chew on. Keaton's performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest "is tremendous, showing the range of decades-long experience, »

Diablo Cody: But What I Really Want to Know Is...

17 hours ago

Diablo Cody is an Oscar-winning screenwriter, an acclaimed author, and one of the big reasons Twitter is worth tolerating, but we mainly love the "Juno" scribe because she's a great interviewee. On the first episode of HitFix's new interview series But What I Really Want To Know Is..., we caught up with Cody (a.k.a. Brook Maurio) to discuss her least favorite screenwriting cliches, the filming of her next movie "Ricki and the Flash" with Meryl Streep, and the woman who warned her to put her Oscar away for good.  We also play a round of our favorite game called Who's In Your Coven? Pick five living women who represent, for lack of a better term, your "spirit animals." Mine are Jane Fonda, Jane Curtin, Lesley Ann Warren, Lee Grant, and Cynthia Nixon. Who did Diablo Cody pick? Your head will spin.    »

Recap: 'Sleepy Hollow' - 'The Weeping Lady' reveals Katrina's commitment to prophecy

18 hours ago

Last week Ichabod and Abbie scored one for the good guys by ending a centuries old family curse and saving a little girl. Meanwhile, Hawley — aka Southern Gentleman Aquaman — scored one for pragmatism by running away from danger because self-preservation is an extremely underutilized skill. But with Mills and Crane feeling good about “getting the hang” of this Witness thing, what inevitably terrible fate awaits them this week with “The Weeping Lady”? *********** Oh wow. The seamstress from the Revolutionary War reenactment the other week wasn’t a throw away character! She returns and is given a name. Caroline. Miss Caroline has been busy replenishing Ichabod’s wardrobe of period appropriate clothing. And churning him butter. And making him jam. And oh dear, I think Caroline is hoping Crane with churn Her butter. Because commitment to Colonial ways is apparently an aphrodisiac. Either that or it’s just his accent. Despite looking like a budget Katrina, »
