Legends of Tomorrow Boss on Living Closer to 'Jump the Shark' Line, Rip's New Role, Amplifying Female Voices

Legends of Tomorrow Boss on Living Closer to 'Jump the Shark' Line, Rip's New Role, Amplifying Female Voices
In Season 1, the Legends of Tomorrow battled Vandal Savage. After that, they got dogged by the Legion of Doom. Now, in Season 3 (premiering tonight at 9/8c, on The CW), yet another wild mission stands before them.

TVLine spoke with co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim about the Legends fixing what they done broke, the addition of some new faces and the joy of “taking the piss out of” its world-saving heroes.

10 Stuntmen Who Died on Set: From John Bernecker to A.J. Bakunas (Photos)
After John Bernecker passed away Thursday night, TheWrap took a look back at other stuntmen who died on set. Kun Liu died in 2012 in an explosion on the set of “The Expendables 2” while filming in Bulgaria. His parents sued Millenium/Nu Image for wrongful death. Lu Yanqing died in 2008 in a fire on set caused by two boats crashing into one another while making the movie “Red Cliff” in China. Jose Marco died in 1969 while filming an underwater sequence in the film “Shark.” He was mauled to death by one of the sharks, which had been improperly sedated. Jack Tyree.

RoboCop 2

It’s ugly, it’s violent, it’s graphic novelist Frank Miller’s nasty vision through and through. Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition brings out the amazing backstory of the production of this stop-motion- intensive first sequel to RoboCop. Druglord Caine is a menace, but we’re just as appalled by the film’s vivid depiction of a greater terror: Predatory Privatization.

The Twelve Days of Classic Christmas Movies – vote for your favourite!

Author: Cai Ross

Christmastime is here. Presumably you already have chestnuts roasting on an open fire, a turkey and some mistletoe, and your first screaming argument about who’s cooking for who and where. ’Tis the season for such timeless traditions, and along with a collective craving for manifestly ill-judged food combinations and a moratorium on our disapproval of comedy knitwear, classic Christmas movies are now a vital part of the great yuletide experience.

But what precisely is a classic Christmas movie? Timeless vintage offerings like Holiday Inn and Miracle on 34th Street are stuffed from titles to credits with all things Christmassy, yet you’ll also find films like Casablanca and The Great Escape on many festive film lists, which have nothing more to do with Christmas than Cannibal Holocaust.

Even the single greatest ‘Christmas Movie’ of all time, It’s a Wonderful Life has a pretty tenuous connection with the Holiday Season,

Arrow Season 4: 20 Most Shocking Moments (So Far)

The CW

Arrow’s fourth season debuted in the second half of 2015 and left fans eagerly awaiting more as the show took off for its mid-season break. Fear not, though, for the show is set to return to screens imminently.

Despite being promised a lighter, happier tone for Arrow, supposedly much more like the feel of The Flash, the Emerald Archer-centric series has continued to skulk in the shadows for the most part, even though the season opened with a happy-go-lucky Oliver Queen shacked up with Felicity Smoak as they spent their days jogging and perfecting omelettes.

In amongst the first half of the season, we saw Oliver mourning at a mystery gravesite, there was the engagement of Ollie and Felicity, we saw appearances from Hawkgirl, Hawkman and Vandal Savage, characters returned from the dead, Thea Queen is massively unhinged, and there was a whole host of other traumas for

Marc Alan Fishman: To Err Is Inhuman

  • Comicmix
TV has been so very good to us lately, has it not? Last week, I talked about Gotham. Making the rounds this week with the newly-coined label mid-season finale came both Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and DC’s The Flash. And boy howdy, could two shows be any more different.

The dichotomous execution of these shows has offered the comic book geek in me a chance to have my cake with a slice of pie on the side. The Flash is proving how DC can unravel the entirety of its wonderful bench of compulsory concepts and characters to build a universe that celebrates the source material; and now makes it flesh. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is happy to borrow only the table scraps of the 616 and spin a story that we couldn’t otherwise enjoy from Marvel Comics. Coulson and his cohorts are wholly a

'Flash' Season 2 Clips Introduce Hawkgirl and Dr. Light

'Flash' Season 2 Clips Introduce Hawkgirl and Dr. Light
Before the midseason series DC's Legends of Tomorrow debuts sometime next year, fans will get to see several of these characters on The CW's current hits Arrow and The Flash. Today we have three new clips from tonight's episode of The Flash, The Darkness and the Light, the first of which gives us a proper introduction to Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee). You may recall that the actress was briefly seen during a crowd scene in the Season 1 finale, but here we see Kendra interacting with Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) for the first time.

Before she becomes Hawkgirl, Kendra Saunders is working as a barista, where Cisco nervously approaches her and asks her out. Unfortunately for Cisco, Kendra shuts him down, but shortly thereafter, his meta-human powers kick in, where he can see a bank robbery already in progress. This sequence gives us our first look at

Top 100 movies of the 1970s

Michael York dashes onto the cinematic scene as the blundering but very enthusiastic D'Artagnan in Richard Lester's hugely enjoyable period comic romp. The late great Roy Kinnear is the long-suffering vassal of aristocratic swordsmen Oliver Reed, Richard Chamberlain and Frank Finlay, whilst Raquel Welch and Faye Dunaway shine as heroine and villainess, respectively. Producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind filmed the following year's sequel back-to-back with this more successful first part, which approach they would revisit shortly for Superman and Superman II.

Breaking: David Carradine Found Dead in Bangkok

Actor David Carradine has been found dead in a Bangkok hotel room, according to multiple news reports. BBC News says that he was in Thailand filming his latest movie, Stretch. He was 72.

The eldest son of character actor John Carradine made more than 200 appearances in films and television shows, first rising to prominence with his starring role as Caine in the TV series Kung Fu. At the time, me and my friends thought he was the coolest thing on the planet: he sought peace with everyone he encountered, yet could quickly put down any opposition that arose simply by using his hands and feet (and head). Later I caught up with his 70s film work: a union leader in Martin Scorsese's Boxcar Bertha, laconic race car driver Frankenstein in Paul Bartel's Death Race 2000, and, especially, his embodiment of folk singer Woody Guthrie in Hal Ashby's Bound for Glory.
