Box Office: ‘November Man,’ ‘As Above, So Below’ Jockey for Labor Day Dominance

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Labor Day represents the last gasp of summer, the final opportunity to wear white, and the end of Hollywood’s busiest time of year.

It tends, however, to close things out with something of a whimper, as opposed to a bang, and this year will be no exception. For studios, it’s the box office equivalent of Arbor Day. Blink and you miss it.

Two new wide releases enter the market this holiday weekend, the Pierce Brosnan action thriller “The November Man” and the found footage horror film “As Above, So Below,” both of which are shaping up to be modest performers.

“Labor Day is traditionally one of the slowest holiday weekends of the year, if not the slowest,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “Expectations are not that high and the focus has shifted away a little bit from the movies.”

The November Man” will get a jump on the festivities, »

Now that's conservation. Matt Damon, an advocate for clean water worldwide, wasn't going to be wasteful when he stepped up to respond to the ice-bucket challenge.

The Walking Dead Boss on Daryl Dixon Being Gay and Plans for a New Homosexual Character

23 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon may or may not be gay. What we know is this: The Walking Dead won't declare one way or another anytime soon. In an interview with TVLine, executive producer and showrunner Scott Gimple said Daryl's (played by Norman Reedus) sexual orientation "is not really addressed" in season five of the hit AMC drama. However, The Walking Dead does plan on introducing a gay male character, Gimple said. Speculation about Daryl's sexual leanings first took off in early August when comic book creator Robert Kirkman was asked about it and said, "All I can say is that it's been discussed." Kirkman added, "We have very specific ideas about Daryl's sexuality (or »

CBS Sets Affiliation Renewal Deal with Lin Media Following Indianapolis Switch

21 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Two weeks after sparring over a deal in the Indianapolis market, CBS has come to terms with Lin Media on a new affiliation pact covering 12 stations.

CBS called it a “comprehensive” pact covering Lin’s Eye affils in Albuquerque, N.M., Buffalo, N.Y., Birmingham, Ala., Portland, Ore., Providence, R.I., and seven other mid-sized markets.

“We are gratified that the full value of that CBS programming has been recognized,” said Ray Hopkins, CBS’ president of television networks distribution. “We look forward to reaching Lin’s more than 4 million households for years to come.”

CBS’ new pact with Lin stations undoubtedly includes a hefty amount of reverse compensation, or fees that the station group will pay the network in exchange for the high-end sports and entertainment programming. Network-caliber programming gives local stations more clout in cutting retransmission consent pacts with local MVPDs, and as the retrans gusher has increased during the past few years, »

Allison Janney on Her Double Emmys Win and Post-‘West Wing’ Act in TV

38 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “The West Wing” ended in 2006, Allison Janney was secretly terrified.

She worried she would never find another TV series role as powerful as the one she held in the Bartlet administration for seven seasons. She was nervous about being typecast as a specific breed of alpha-female. And she fretted that reality TV was going to take over network TV entirely, turning high-end scripted shows into endangered species.

Boy, was she wrong.

Janney, 54, is the embodiment of the extraordinary range of opportunities available to established actors in television’s ever-widening programming landscape. She took home two Emmys (Nos. 5 and 6 on her mantle) this month for her work in two very different series: the CBS comedy “Mom” and the Showtime period drama “Masters of Sex.”

The November Man Is the Spy-Movie Equivalent of Airport Reading

39 minutes ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The November Man is a nasty piece of work — the kind of movie where it’s not enough for a bad guy to get a sniper’s bullet through the brain in close-up; he also has to smash his head against the side of a boat as his lifeless body plummets to the water. (He’s on a boat.) Based on the late author Bill Granger’s popular series of Cold War–era espionage novels, this thriller, updated for our times and starring Pierce Brosnan as Granger’s CIA agent hero Bill Devereaux, is appropriately pulpy — fuss-free and fast. If it doesn’t transcend its genre origins, I suspect it’s because it doesn’t want to.The film opens with a scenario typical of movies like this: the job gone wrong. In this case, it’s a foiled assassination attempt in Montenegro in 2008, in which Devereaux’s protégé David Mason »
