‘Shadow of Truth’ Exclusive Trailer: Netflix’s Israeli True Crime Docuseries Could Be the Next ‘Making a Murderer’ — Watch

4 hours ago

What happens if you suspect your judicial system of being unjust?

That’s the question many Israelis faced in Netflix‘s “Shadow of Truth,” a four-part documentary series about the murder of a 13-year-old girl, Tair Rada, in Golan Heights during the daytime at her high school in 2006. Although a suspect was questioned, confessed and was eventually found guilty, his conviction has been the subject of wide controversy in the country.

Rada’s murder case was a matter of intense scrutiny by the public who didn’t want their own children to fall victim to such a senseless crime. Unfortunately, the conviction didn’t mollify the public because there were far too many pieces that didn’t add up. From the inaccurate confession and crime reenactment to a lack of DNA or fingerprint matches, »

Dan Bucatinsky on ’24: Legacy,’ ‘Scandal’ and His Partnership with Lisa Kudrow — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

6 hours ago

Last Week’S Podcast: ‘Doubt’ Producers on Their Show’s Transgender Breakthrough – IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Dan Bucatinsky has one of the more interesting careers in television – an actor, writer, producer who can’t be pigeonholed into one category. Bucatinsky might be best known as playing James Novak on ABC’s “Scandal,” which earned him a Primetime Emmy Award in 2013, or from “The Comeback,” the HBO series that took a nearly 10-year break between seasons.

But he’s also a successful TV producer, having partnered in 2003 with Lisa Kudrow to launch the production company Is or Isn’t Entertainment. Together, they’ve been behind “The Comeback,” the digital series “Web Therapy” (which eventually ended up on Showtime), and the reality series “Who Do You Think You Are?” on TLC.

Now, Bucatinsky is one of the stars of Fox’s “24: Legacy,” the reboot of the popular “24” franchise that »

Jude Law’s Japanese Pepsi Ad Wins Costume Designers Guild Award Over Beyoncé’s ‘Hold Up’ — Watch

8 hours ago

The 19th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards took place last night in Los Angeles. This year, the Excellence in Short Form Design category saw some stiff competition, with nominees such as Jude Law’s long-form Japanese Pepsi ad “Momotaro” and Beyoncé’s video for “Hold Up.” But at the end, colorful long capes, gladiator uniforms and samurai costumes won over Bey’s iconic ruffled yellow gown, sexy sleepwear and cool streetwear designed by B. Åkerlund.

Costume designer Amy Goodheart took home the award for her very detailed work in “Momotaro.” “Pulling inspiration from London punks in the ’70s and ancient Shogun — everything from a child king in a 28-foot cape covered in thousands of hand-painted gold feathers, to a dog-boy raised by wolves in the Andes has been realized,” Goodheart told the guild.

‘Rock and a Hard Place’ Trailer: The Rock Tells Young Inmates ‘Don’t F***’ Up Their Best Chance to Stay Out of Jail — Watch

9 hours ago

“You don’t feel it right now, but you’re lucky. You’re lucky because you’ve got another shot. Don’t fuck this thing up. I mean that.”

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the nicest guy in the world, speaks to you like that, you listen. In HBO’s upcoming documentary “Rock and a Hard Place,” the action star makes an appearance to give a reality check to young inmates who are about to take part in the famed Miami-Dade County Corrections & Rehabilitation Boot Camp.

Seth Meyers’ ‘Oscar Bait’ Movie Spoof is a Great Film Industry Satire — Watch

9 hours ago

With the Academy Awards taking place this weekend, awards season is coming to glorious end. But before that, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” is poking some fun at the film industry’s obsession with awards with a fake trailer for “Oscar Bait,” a film that would have all the necessary elements to be Oscar-worthy.

Read More: ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Begs America to ‘Never Fjorget’ Fake Swedish Attack — Watch

When it comes to making an attempt to win an Oscar, Meyer’s fake film checks off all the boxes. It contains “racial tension, latent homosexuality, and a man staring at trains”. It also includes tragedy, an unhappy marriage and its main character suffers from a rare decease.

Meyer’s film takes some elements from award show darlings such as “Manchester by the Sea,” “Boyhood,” and “Moonlight.” It even steals a scene straight up from the movie “Carol,” starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. »

‘Iron Fist’ Video Explains Why Netflix’s Latest Marvel Hero Punches So Damn Hard

12 hours ago

It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you focus your chi.

In the sneak peek of “Marvel’s Iron Fist” below, we learn the backstory that made former billionaire Danny Rand (“Game of Thrones” star Finn Jones) what he is today. Besides surviving a harrowing plane crash that left him an orphan, he apparently learned how to harness the fire of the fist from some monks who know how to do a lot more than pray.

But 15 years after that fateful plane crash, Danny has returned to New York sans shoes and frankly looking kind of homeless. Let’s just say it’s not the warm and fuzzy reunion he was hoping for.

The Best Murder Mystery Series Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

13 hours ago

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is your favorite murder mystery show?

Erik Adams (@ErikMAdams), A.V. Club

It has to be “Twin Peaks,” right? I’m one of those annoying people who insists the show is so much more than “Who killed Laura Palmer?”, but that is our entry point to David Lynch and Mark Frost’s weird little world, and the question that briefly made “Twin Peaks” a pop-culture phenomenon. And the chapters of the series that deal with finding Laura’s murderer are some of the most compelling, from the dream-sequence enhanced “Zen, Or The Skill To Catch A Killer” or the eventual solution to the mystery, a »

‘The Detour’ Review: Season 2 Switches Drivers, Keeps Pushing the Boundaries of Family Comedy

23 hours ago

Even after Season 1, it was clear “The Detour” was a deceptive title. Though Nate Parker’s seemingly impulsive but truly diabolical decision to drive (rather than fly) the family from Syracuse, New York to Florida pushed the exceedingly wild story forward, the altered route wasn’t really the focus of a family comedy unraveling more mysteries than most soap operas. Week after week as the Parkers made their lengthy journey south, and new secrets were unveiled about Nate (Jason Jones), Robin (Natalie Zea), and their two kids, Delilah (Ashley Gerasimovich) and Jared (Liam Carroll).

But the titular detour wasn’t the road trip itself, nor was it what was uncovered because of it. “The Detour’s” larger purpose was to take us on a trip out of our comfort zone. The TBS original is built to deconstruct our understanding of family comedies and family dynamics in general.

‘Game of Thrones’ Iwan Rheon Joins ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ in a ‘Roguish’ Role

21 February 2017 1:23 PM, PST

Maybe Iwan Rheon will get his chance at the crown after all.

The Welsh actor, best known for playing the sadistic bastard Ramsay Bolton on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has been cast in “Marvel’s Inhumans” for ABC. He’ll play the ambitious, clever and charming Maximus, who covets his brother Black Bolt’s crown in Attilan.

Different from the Marvel’s universe’s mutants, the Inhumans are a race of superhumans who first developed unique powers in ancient times thanks to some genetic tinkering. They have a society of their own that has thrived in seclusion from the rest of humanity. Their culture follows a caste system and includes a Royal Family, of which Maximus and Black Bolt are members.

‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Begs America to ‘Never Fjorget’ Fake Swedish Attack — Watch

21 February 2017 7:10 AM, PST

Fresh off the news of last week’s late night ratings sweep, “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” keeps the hits coming. In a cheeky new bit, Colbert skewers President Donald Trump over comments he made about a terror attack in Sweden that never happened.

“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden,” said Trump at a rally in Florida over the weekend. The joke practically writes itself as the camera cuts back to Colbert, a baffled smirk on his adorable mug. “No one. No one would believe that,” he pauses for laughter. “Well, not no one, but maybe someone who skips their intelligence briefings.”

What Makes TV ‘Very Good’ in 2017? Damon Lindelof, Aya Cash, The Cast of ‘Casual’ and More Share Insights

20 February 2017 2:42 PM, PST

If television were a universe, it would be the Marvel universe: so large and loosely tied together, it’s kinda scary.

But within that universe lies more treasures than Thor has in all of Asgard. Comedy, drama, limited series, films, variety shows, talk shows — and those are just Emmy categories. Television provides challenging ongoing narratives like “The Leftovers” and momentary blips of brilliance (like this). Moreover, television opens doors to new worlds and provides revealing facts about the ones we already know. It’s a medium of great power and untapped potential. Television is very good, in many, many different ways.

So to celebrate the 100th episode of IndieWire’s Very Good Television Podcast, co-hosts Ben Travers (IndieWire TV Critic) and Liz Shannon Miller (IndieWire’s TV Editor) reached out to a few of their favorite influential people working in television today. The question sounds simple: What makes for “very »

John Oliver Explains Trump-Russia Insanity with the Help of ‘La La Land’ and ‘The Human Centipede’ — Watch

20 February 2017 11:55 AM, PST

In the latest “Last Week Tonight” segment, John Oliver goes long on the special relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. One moment feels especially apt. While discussing the false equivalencies made between Russia and the United States — a favorite tactic of Putin, who’s known for deflecting criticisms of his government by pointing out that things aren’t perfect in America either — the host uses an unexpected analogy: “La La Land” and “The Human Centipede.”

“Not all problems are the same,” Oliver explains. “It’s like comparing ‘La La Land,’ an Academy Award–nominated movie with glaring flaws, to ‘The Human Centipede,’ a thing that barely counts as a film. Yes, one movie is people sewn mouth-to-anus, but, you know, Ryan Gosling looks at his feet when he dances, so it all evens out in the end. »
