Hot Rumor: Why Is This Major Character Missing In 'Batman v Superman'?

9 December 2014 9:22 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

*Spoiler Alert*

Do not read ahead if you don't want to know the fate of one of the most seminal characters in Batman's mythos in Dawn of Justice

...

..

.

Okay, if you're still here it's because you're a straight up junkie and you need to take a hit off the Spoiler Pipe because you need your fix, and waiting until March 25, 2016 just isn't an option.

Throughout all of the casting announcements for Zack Snyder's Justice League prequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, people have noticed one glaring omission. We've heard about many iconic roles being filled, or rumored to appear in the film, but one name has never come up:

Gotham's Police Commissioner James Gordon.

Where is he? Why would a character famously played by the great Gary Oldman, and that also has its own TV series based around him, be absent from this massive film? Our pal Devin Faraci »

James Burrows, Robert Butler Selected for DGA Lifetime Achievement Award

4 December 2014 10:57 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Directors Guild of America has selected James Burrows and Robert Butler as the first recipients of a new DGA Award: the Lifetime Achievement Award for Distinguished Achievement in Television Direction.

“For those out there who’ve wondered what kind of impact a television director can have on the medium: Jim Burrows and Bob Butler provide the answers,” said DGA president Paris Barclay.

“That’s why we’re beyond thrilled to establish a new award, and to inaugurate it with two men who have had an incomparable influence over decades of precedent-setting television directing,” said Barclay.  “They’ve shaped the history of television in ways too numerous to calculate, including directing the pilots for some of the most iconic television shows ever.”

Barclay noted that Burrows will soon direct his 1,000th TV episode and cited “Taxi,” “Cheers,” “Friends,” “Will and Grace” and “The Big Bang Theory” as his key titles. »

What Movie Have You Watched the Most? The Hitfix Staff Answers

27 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Everybody has that one movie that they've watched so many times, "knowing it by heart" doesn't even begin to describe the relationship. It's the film that you drop everything to watch when it comes on TV, or that you bought and wore out the VHS copy, and then the DVD and the Blu-Ray... and you're still happy to watch it again on Netflix. Maybe it all started with what your family liked to watch (or what they hated) or what ended up in your stocking at holiday time, or what you fell in love with at the theater. Below, the HitFix editorial staff shares its most-watched movies of all time. What is yours? Tell us in the comments! Donna Dickens "Titanic" I was that fourteen year old girl.

William Shatner launches Kickstarter campaign for new book Catch Me Up

25 November 2014 1:17 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

William Shatner has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a book on career reinvention.

Shatner's new self-help book Catch Me Up is focused on encouraging and inspiring people over 50 with career struggles to reinvent themselves.

Catch Me Up offers tips on how older people can adapt to modern technology, in addition to providing career guidance to people of any age.

Shatner has already written a draft of the book and is now seeking funding to avoid having to rely on a major publishing house.

"Going the traditional route would've required a number of sacrifices including a change in the overall message," Shatner explained on his Kickstarter page.

"So I've decided to take a page from my own book, so to speak, and use crowdsourcing to fund this project."

Shatner is seeking to raise at least $50,000 by January 19, 2015, with more than $23,000 in donations already pouring in.

Perks for those donating include »

Ulrich Seidl reveals new film details

24 November 2014 11:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Midway through International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (Idfa), the In the Basement director has talked about his period drama; while George Takei has revealed details on his WWII project and Autlook and picked up new titles.

Speaking at Amsterdam’s Eye centre, controversial Austrian director Ulrich Seidl, whose latest doc In The Basement (sold by Coproduction Office) is screening at the festival, revealed further details of his forthcoming costume film.

The film, a historical drama set in the late 18th century, has a working title of Herr Grasl. It is set in “the milieu of the poorest of the poor”.

These are young people, returning from war and having to engage in criminal activities to survive. Its main character is Herr. Grasl, a real-life Robin Hood-like figure who lived in the northern part of Austria fought back against the authorities and was eventually hanged at the age of 26. The film promises to be Seidl’s most ambitious yet.[p »

Obsessed with Pop Culture: Best of the Week

Starry Eyes’: The feel disturbed movie of the year

This film is at its very core a success story. A very demented, gory, horrifying and darkly comical success story – one with tinges of satanic cult horror wrapped in psychological terror. The plot follows a young aspiring actress, Sarah, as she is called back to audition for a horror film that is being produced by a mysterious production company that pushes her to her limits – a dark exchange for fame and fortune… click here to read the article. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I’ is all prologue

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded orPirates of »

Television that Home Video Forgot: Darkroom (1981)

22 November 2014 3:08 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Darkroom

Showcase Inventory

Created by Peter S. Fischer

Produced by Universal TV

Aired on ABC for 1 season (7 episodes; 16 segments) from November 27, 1981 – January 15, 1982

Cast

James Coburn as the Host

Show Premise

Darkroom was a thriller anthology series, much in the vein of Night Gallery, where each story had an image to present before it began. The series was hosted by James Coburn, who introduced each story segment as a photographer in his darkroom, developing photographs and tales. The innovative aspect of this particular anthology series was that the story segments had free range to be as long or as short as the story needed to be, as long as the segments fit within the hour duration. Most episodes contained two stories, but at times there were three.

The tone of the stories presented on the series were mostly frightful tales, with grim twist endings that were enhanced with dark humor. The »

A look back at the comet-based madness of Lifeforce

12 November 2014 8:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To celebrate the success of the Rosetta mission, we take a timely look at Lifeforce, an exceedingly strange comet-based sci-fi from 1985...

In olden times, comets were seen as portents of death and disaster, so goodness knws what they’d have thought of the Rosetta mission: the ambitious attempt to put a landing craft on the jagged bulk of a comet called Churyumov-Gerasimenko - a delicate procedure that’s still ongoing at the time of writing. Our ancestors probably would have thought we were completely mad. Or in league with the devil for creating such advanced machinery in the first place.

Then again, who knows what they would have thought of Lifeforce, the 1985 film about an exploratory mission to Halley’s Comet, which inadvertently causes a trio of space vampires to attack London - and all from the director Tobe Hooper, who brought us The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Lifeforce is, »

Comic Book Review – Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever #5

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever #5…

The final act of Harlan Ellison’s Hugo and WGA Award-winning Star Trek teleplay!  Is James T. Kirk willing to sacrifice the woman he loves, to save the universe as he knows it?! You may have seen the episode, but you only think you know how it ends! From the mind of literary legend Harlan Ellison!

Here we are at the final chapter of the comic book translation of Harlan Ellison’s The City on the Edge of Forever and it is going to be extremely sad to see this short serial go.  In five months I have witnessed quite possibly the greatest Star Trek comic book series ever fly by and I’m glad I had the chance to review it.  With that in mind I take to our final chapter and for those who »

13 I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winners ranked: Who was best?

12 November 2014 5:38 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

After 13 series, there have now been more than enough I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winners to fill up their own all-star series.

They all had to endure creepy crawlies, tough Bushtucker Trials and mockery by Ant & Dec, but they all won the hearts of the nation for a couple of weeks.

Some of them may have fallen from grace since, while some have soared up the UK fame ranks. But who were the best champions from their respective series? Here's our just-for-fun, don't-take-it-too-seriously Top 13.

13. Carol Thatcher - Series 5 (2005)

Potentially the most surprising winner of the lot, no-one could have guessed that Margaret Thatcher's daughter would have been voted the nation's favourite.

Viewers were won over by how involved she was in the tasks, her no-nonsense attitude, and the fact that she was only up against Sid Owen and Cannon & Ball.

12. Matt Willis - Series 6 (2006)

10 November 2014 9:29 AM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Our Olive Films rep has informed us that Mantrap is making its way to Blu-ray on November 18th. A 1980s cult classic, Moontrap stars Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead) and Walter Koenig (Star Trek's original Chekov) as astronauts sent to the moon to investigate evidence of what appears to be signs of human life.

They reanimate the body of a woman (Leigh Lombardi), who warns them that the moon is under the control of a race of alien cyborgs, which have been awaiting the opportunity to stage their invasion of Earth. The humans realize that desperate measures must be taken to halt the cyborgs' departure from the moon -- even if it ends in their own destruction.

PopPolitics: Aaron Sorkin on ‘The Newsroom,’ CNN and the Boston Bombings (Listen)

7 November 2014 2:36 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Newsroom” returns to HBO for its third and final season on Sunday, and creator Aaron Sorkin is once again deploying plot twists using events of the recent past, this time the Boston Marathon bombings.

But in an interview with Variety’s “PopPolitics,” airing on SiriusXM’s Potus Channel, Sorkin says that he’s not trying to turn “hindsight into heroism” by blending fact with fiction as a way to say “here’s how you should have done it.” Rather, he draws on recent events “so I don’t have to make up fake news which would make the world seem fake.”

As Will McAvoy and the Acn news team scramble to cover the bombings with a degree of journalistic caution, they watch as CNN’s John King makes the real-life gaffe of reporting that Boston police had made an arrest. CNN was forced to retract the story.

Shatner, Of All People, Demands You "Get A Life!"

4 November 2014 8:42 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

When you look at the DVD cover for William Shatner’s Get a Life! you imagine that it is a documentary about Shatner interacting with his Star Trek fanbase (or, perhaps, you think it is some comedy show by Shatner that contains a lot of Star Trek jokes a la that SNL sketch). But, Get a Life! (supposedly based on Shatner’s 1999 book of the same name) is a documentary about Star Trek fans at the 45th anniversary convention in 2011. So, needless to say, this is a timely DVD release (especially considering the Star Trek: The Compendium release).
