Designated Survivor Photo Preview: Keep Calm

8 September 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There's nothing like Kiefer Sutherland being in charge!

Sure, this time around he's playing President instead of protecting a president, but that doesn't mean he's not going to be a badass.

What's interesting is how cool, calm, and collected Sutherland's Tom Kirkman appears in these photos from considering his life has just been turned upside down.

It bodes well for the future of the country if a guy like Kirkman can handle the pressure so well. No rash decision from this guy it seems!

While Kirkman keeps everyone calm inside, FBI Agent Hannal Wells (Maggie Q) is keeping everyone calm outside. She's definitely got some work to do to try to figure out what happened and why.

How do you think it will all play out? Check out the photos from Designated Survivor Season 1 Episode 1 and speculate away!

Designated Survivor premieres on Wednesday, September 21 at 10/9c on ABC. Be sure »

Roger Corman: 5 Reasons He’s Optimistic About the Film World and His Legacy

12 August 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There are some figures in film history who fade away along with the era in which they produce the bulk of their work. And then there’s veteran B-movie producer and director Roger Corman, still chipper than ever at 90. As a filmmaker, Corman was responsible for a string of vibrant Edgar Allen Poe adaptations in the early sixties (most of which starred Vincent Price). He also directed William Shatner in his best pre-“Star Trek” performance as a race-baiting lunatic in 1962’s “The Intruder.” But Corman more or less stopped directing movies in 1970 (with the exception of 1990’s “Frankenstein Unbound”) and shifted focus to producing a string of low budget genre efforts — several of which introduced some of the great American filmmakers still working today, including Martin Scorsese, Frances Ford Coppola, James Cameron, Jonathan Demme, and many others.

Box Office Meltdown: Hollywood Races to Win Back Summer Crowds

26 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From “Jaws” to “Jurassic Park,” few directors can rival Steven Spielberg in the blockbuster arena. But even Spielberg’s magic touch couldn’t save “The BFG” at the box office.

On paper, the film, a $140 million adaptation of a beloved children’s book with a script by “ET” writer Melissa Mathison, had all the makings of a hit. Instead, the movie collapsed at the multiplexes, eking out less than $20 million in its opening weekend.

It’s a stunning fall for one of cinema’s highest-flying talents — a director whose finger was affixed to the pulse of mainstream tastes for decades. Yet “The Bfg” is only the latest high-profile casualty in a summer that’s seen a slew of big-budget domestic bombs. Indeed, red ink has spilled out from such misses as “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Warcraft,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, »

Robert Pattinson to Headline the Zellner Brothers’ Western ‘Damsel,’ Their Followup to ‘Kumiko’

13 July 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Team Bunzo hasn’t had much to celebrate of late, with the Zellner Brothers’ “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” now a distant enough memory for bunny- and/or Fargo-obsessed fans to wonder what’s next. David and Nathan will soon be back with “Damsel,” however, and per a new report from The Film Stage, the Western is said to have found its lead in Robert Pattinson. Mia Wasikowska, the actor’s “Map to the Stars” co-star, is reportedly in talks to join as well.

Much like his “Twilight” screen partner/former flame Kristen Stewart, Pattinson has found a new niche in the art-house world over the last few years, with films like “Cosmopolis” and “The Rover” surely testing the limits of his fanbase. No word on whether “Damsel” will be as extreme as those earlier projects, »

‘Dead of Summer’ Review Roundup: Critics Say The Summer Camp Slasher Series Is Dead On Arrival

28 June 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dead of Summer” is a campy new horror, mystery series that debuts on Freeform this June 28. Created by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz and Ian B. Goldberg, the story follows a group of camp counselors who stumble into a small town filled with demon worshippers and disgruntled ghosts.

Variety’s TV critic Sonia Saraiya writes, “The teen horror series is loaded with clichés, but with enough popcorn, it might make for a fun summer fling.” She notes that the first episode is “astonishingly bad” and includes “bland protagonist Amy.” “At the very least, while escaping the dog days of summer inside with the air-conditioning, there’s plenty of fun to be had in laughing at how bad it is,” she concludes.

Graham Nash Talks New Rock-Doc Series, 'Woodstock' Drama

28 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Graham Nash has plenty of experience with the vagaries of rock & roll documentaries. Take Woodstock, for one: "There were three days of really good music and the movie was three hours," he says, "so there are a lot of great performances that have never been seen apart from bootlegs." No one knows that more than Nash, since Neil Young refused to be filmed during Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's career-making set at the festival. In the film, you'll hear an announcer say, "Crosby, Stills, Nash" – but no Young. "Neil threatened to deck anybody who filmed him, »

Girl Meets World Keeps It in the Family With Latest Flashback Casting

10 June 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Girl Meets World is once again turning back the clock, this time with the help of a familiar face — or at least a familiar name.

Ocean Maturo, brother of August Maturo (aka Auggie Matthews), will play a younger version of Auggie during a flashback in an upcoming Season 3 episode, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Descendants 2 Premiering in 2017; China Anne McClain Cast as Ursula 2.0

10 June 2016 7:59 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Descendants are adding a poor, unfortunate soul to their ranks.

Disney Channel on Friday announced that China Anne McClain (A.N.T. Farm) is joining the cast of Descendants 2 as Uma, the daughter of legendary sea witch Ursula. McClain previously voiced Freddie, the daughter of The Princess and the Frog‘s Dr. Facilier, in the animated series Descendants: Wicked World.

The sequel — premiering in 2017, with production slated to begin this summer — will also introduce the offspring of Captain Hook and Beauty and the Beast‘s Gaston; their casting will be announced soon.

The cast of the original 2015 film will also return for Descendants 2Dove Cameron as Mal, daughter of Maleficent; Cameron Boyce as Carlos, son of Cruella de Vil; Booboo Stewart as Jay, son of Jafar; Sofia Carson as Evie, daughter of the Evil Queen; and Mitchell Hope as King Ben, son of Belle and the Beast — along with Kenny Ortega as director, executive producer and choreographer.

“Just when you thought ‘Happily Ever After’ had come to the land of Auradon, Descendants 2 turns the page to reveal a whole new level of mystery and surprise,” warns Disney Channel president Gary Marsh.

Review: Lonely Island hits the bullseye with an easy target in 'Popstar'

3 June 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you are excited by the prospect of a Lonely Island movie, I have good news for you. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a Lonely Island movie in every way, packed with music and jokes. At 90 minutes, it moves fast, and it offers up some laser-sharp satire. If there’s any overall problem with the film, it is that they’ve made a very specific satire of a target that is so ridiculous it almost resists parody. It’s easy to just make the comparison to This Is Spinal Tap, the mockumentary that launched Rob Reiner’s career as a director, but Popstar is a reaction to a very different kind of film than Spinal Tap was. You have to go back and look at films like The Song Remains The Same or The Kids Are Alright to understand what the culture was that Spinal Tap targeted, while modern »

Girl Meets World Season 3 Premiere Recap: What the Hole Just Happened?

3 June 2016 5:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The halls were alive with the sound of injustice on Friday’s Girl Meets World season premiere.

For starters, all of Riley and Maya’s worst fears about high school came true when a (seemingly) menacing trio of seniors forced the Gmw crew to stand in a literal hole on their first day. And although the presumed bullies later explained they were just trying to give Riley and her friends some perspective, their words did little to quell the growing rift between them.

Not only did the hole drive Riley and Lucas apart — Riley is, for some reason, taking most »

‘Castro’s Daughter’ Movie Adds Maven Pictures (Exclusive)

31 January 2016 5:52 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Maven Pictures has joined Mankind Entertainment in producing historical drama “Castro’s Daughter,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Maven’s Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler will be joining the production as lead producers with developing producers John Martinez O’Felan, Joe Lamy and Mexican filmmaker Luis Mandoki, who came on board last July to direct.

The screenplay was redeveloped this year by Mandoki and Nilo Cruz, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Anna in the Tropics.” Cruz escaped Cuba as a child. Oscar winner Bobby Moresco (“Crash”) is also credited as a co-writer.

The announcement comes six months after the July 20 resumption of normal ties between the U.S. and Cuba.

“Castro’s Daughter” is based on the life story of Alina Fernandez, who was born in 1956 — three years before her father Fidel Castro took power. Fernandez was Castro’s love child with Naty Revuelta, a wealthy socialite who sold her »
