SyFy's take on "Being Human" includes a lesbian character

30 December 2010 1:10 PM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

With the New Year upon us, prepare to add a new Lgbt character to your radar when Syfy's Being Human remake premieres on Jan. 17.

The remake of the popular U.K. series about three twentysomethings — a vampire, werewolf and ghost who share living quarters — features a lesbian supporting character: Emily, the sister of the show's resident moon howler.

Played by Alison Louder, viewers meet Emily in Episode 2 of the new Monday night scripted drama that stars Sam Witwer (Smallville) as Aidan the vampire, Sam Huntington (Superman Returns) as Josh the werewolf and relative newcomer Meaghan Rath (Prom Wars) as Sally the ghost.

Alison Louder

For fans of the supernatural, the series grabs you immediately as Josh transforms into a werewolf. It's not the campy greatness of HBO's True Blood, but it's fun just the same. Judging from the first three episodes, we know that Aidan is a 200-year-old vampire who, »

TV Review: ‘Ghost Adventures Episode Fourteen’ – My Hunt For the Evidence

19 December 2010 5:08 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ghost Adventures: My “Hunt for the Evidence”

Turn of the century Seattle was a booming place to be if you were in the market for a quick fortune. A gold rush struck turning the once sleepy region into the north western pacific’s largest trading/selling mecha. With this surge of populace came consequences, namely the disposal of the dead coming from the mines and saloon houses. It became such a plague that the local Government had difficulties ushering all the bodies to the mortuaries. In desperation the Government implemented a system of body retrieval previously unheard of; citizens bringing in the bodies of the dead for cash rewards. Running fifty dollars a body- nearly one year’s salary for the worker of the day- the system was ripe for corruption. Enter Butterworth & Sons mortuary and a diabolical scheme that would come to rock the city to it’s core. »

Potterin’ with Ghosts: Japanese Style

16 December 2010 10:42 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Hey, who says Hollywood has cornered the market on remaking movies? Here’s a Japanese remake of the Patrick Swayze-Demi Moore 1990 movie “Ghost”. The Japanese re-telling switches things up a bit with the girl (Nanako Matsushima) getting gunned down in this one, while the man (Song Seung-heon) is left to pine for his beloved. Whoopi Goldberg’s comic psychic has been swapped with an elderly woman, and Vincent Schiavelli, the grouchy subway ghost who teaches our hero the ways of the force, or, how to kick a can when you’re dead, has been re-envisioned as a little girl. Nanami is a successful young entrepreneur and she has everything a woman could ask for—except the man of her dreams. On her birthday, she gets drunk and spends the night with a stranger, Jun-ho. Nanami feels he is the love of her life and they have a romantic wedding. »

The iron-fisted father of movie matte painting

13 December 2010 8:45 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Another great documentary has gone online from visual effects supervisor Dennis Lowe (Alien, Neverending Story, Labyrinth, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer). Lowe has become a prolific and valuable documentarian of visual effects history, starting out with his Alien documentaries a couple of years back, and recently looking into the life and work of matte painter Leigh Took (Clash of the Titans, Batman, Neverending Story II, The Da Vinci Code).

Now Lowe has turned his attention to one of the founding fathers of visual effects photography, the fine-artist-turned-matte-painter Percy Day O.B.E.

Day stumbled across the technique of 'original negative matte painting' when working as a matte artist in France for the production of Au Bonheur Des Dames (1931). Up until this point, matte painting was a very public spectacle, with the artist working live on location to add dimensions to a set by depicting scenes on glass, which would »

The Hit List of 2010 - Part 1

12 December 2010 3:10 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

While The Black List may be getting most of the press from entertainment news circles when it's announced in December, there's another compilation of the best new ideas and writing being offered to Hollywood movie studios and producers. It's called The Hit List (Thl), and it differs from The Black List in one fundamental way: whereas The Black List (Tbl) is a list of the top unproduced screenplays in Hollywood, several of the screenplays on that list have been purchased or are in development.

Take a look at last year's Black List (Part 1 is here, Part 2 is here) and here we are, one year later, and several of the scripts that made the 2009 list will be coming out in 2011 -- or have already been released (like The Social Network or Due Date). The Hit List is different in that it seeks to give attention to spec screenplays -- that is, »

TV Review: ‘Ghost Adventures Episode Thirteen’ – My Hunt For the Evidence

Ghost Adventures: My “Hunt for the Evidence”

Evil seems to know no bounds. From what we see in the news today to the things that happened in the past, Evil seems to spread to the most unexpected places. Evil spread to Villisca, Iowa during the summer of 1912 when an unknown madman broke into the house of an unsuspecting family and murdered them in their sleep with an axe. What is it that drives a person to such evil? Is it mental illness not kept in check? Some sort of evil force possessing those who commit such acts? Perhaps we’ll find some insight on these matters tonight as the team faces evil once again, Only this time it has a name…

Villisca Axe Murder House

In 1912 the little town of Villisca woke to find one of the most horrific murder scenes the townspeople had ever seen. An entire family »

Foreign Objects: The Stool Pigeon (Hong Kong)

3 December 2010 6:53 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You’d think being an informant for the police would be a fantastic career choice. Constantly playing both sides of the law, living the glamorous snitchy lifestyle in seedy locales, always wondering if your criminal friends are going to discover what you’re up to and silence your squealing ways… but you’d be wrong. And clearly not someone who’s ever watched a movie involving a police informant. (Starsky & Hutch‘s Huggy Bear notwithstanding.) Detective Don Lee (Nick Cheung) is working a case with the help of an informant whose safety he’s guaranteed, but when the sting goes bad the snitch is attacked and left clinging to life. Time moves on and new cases roll in, and soon Lee is looking for a new inside man. He finds that man in Ghost (Nicholas Tse), a recently paroled street racer desperate to free his sister from her life of forced prostitution. Ghost »

Ghost Adventures: My “Hunt for the Evidence”

It seems as if many of the investigations to date have taken place in abandoned mines and hospitals. Something about the pain and hardship suffered in places like these seem to attract paranormal activity. Little surprise that today’s investigation takes place in a building that was both home to a mining corporation and the local hospital; Seemingly a paranormal double-whammy. Strap in for a wild ride in Death Valley, California!

Week Eleven: Amargosa Hotel and Opera

The Amargosa Opera House was originally built as a hospital for the Borax Mining Facility that moved into the area in the year 1923. A few murders and a suicide by hanging took place before the facility ultimately closed in 1929. After the mining company left the land empty, It remained empty until the early 1960’s when the current owners happened upon the property and decided to buy it. »

The Man and His Dream: A Francis Ford Coppola Profile (Part 3)

23 November 2010 11:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola in the third of a five-part feature... read parts one and two.

“The success of The Godfather [1972] went to my head like a rush of perfume. I thought I couldn’t do anything wrong,” admitted Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola who decided to produce a $23 million romantic fantasy. “One from the Heart [1982] suffered from the perception of me as some wild, egomaniac Donald Trump type of guy, and once they think about you that way, it’s just so many months before you’re brought down.” A middle class couple (Frederic Forrest and Teri Garr) split up and head off to Las Vegas where they encounter fanciful lovers. “I wanted to take a fable-like story and treat it almost the way [Walt] Disney would approach a story in his animated films,” explained the filmmaker. “If we had made the movie in Las Vegas, »

Ghost Adventures: My “Hunt for the Evidence”

Fort Chaffee has had a very famous (And infamous) history, Perhaps a more interesting history than any location before! Early in it’s history the Rock’n’Roll sensation Elvis Presley was stationed here; the barber chair where he got his first crew cut is preserved onsite to this day. Later the camp became a refuge for Vietnamese refugees that fled to the states after Saigon fell. In a strange twist of fate, the Activity Director for the refugees was the infamous Mark David Chapman who would go on to murder another music legend; John Lennon. It just goes to show, history makers hail from the weirdest (and most haunted) places.

Week Ten: Fort Chaffee:

Fort Chaffee was opened in 1940 during the height of WWII. Throughout the war it was used to house Nazi prisoners of war and to train GI’s heading overseas. »

Jason Statham Kicks Butt, Doesn't Bother Taking Names In 'The Mechanic' Trailer

16 November 2010 10:45 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

If you're Jason Statham, how do you possibly top the experience of working with such a star-studded cast on "The Expendables?" Well, there's always the sequel to consider, but in the meantime, the British action star has other plans: a starring turn in "The Mechanic."

Simon West's remake of the Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent-starring '70s action classic, and while we certainly don't want to speak ill of the late, great Bronson's work — for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is our fear of his ghost coming back to kick our collective butts — it certainly looks like Statham's attempt to restart the Bronson franchise is off to an excellent start, if this new trailer is any indicator.

In "The Mechanic," Statham stars as Arthur Bishop, an assassin-for-hire — or a "mechanic" — that works on his own terms with his own unique set of skills. When »

In The Press: People Magazine’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive… Who Could Be Next?

13 November 2010 9:43 PM, PST | Channing Tatum Unwrapped | See recent Channing Tatum Unwrapped news »

Tweet

People Magazine will announce their 2010 Sexiest Man Alive in next week’s issue. In the mean time, they’re matching up previous winners with their “Sexy-In-Grooming” contemporaries. As you can see above, People has paired Channing Tatum with 1991’s Sexiest Man Patrick Swayze, and here’s what they had to say about the dueling and extremely likeable dancer-turned-actors…

Described as “both a woman’s fantasy and a man’s man,” the late Patrick Swayze became an overnight heartthrob after starring in Dirty Dancing and Ghost. Twenty years later, Channing Tatum has parlayed his role in Step Up into a full Hollywood dance card, with action movies (G.I. Joe) and romantic dramas (Dear John).

This isn’t the first time that Chan has been compared to the legend that is Patrick Swayze. Long time CTU readers may recall last year’s ‘Dirty Dancing’ spoof…

Whoops Now!

13 November 2010 6:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I haven't seen Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls, but my understanding is that, despite the sprawling cast of divine (and, in one case, Devine) actresses, they don't actually share many scenes together. That's a shame for actressexuals such as Nathaniel and myself, but whenever Janet Jackson and Whoopi Goldberg were in the same room together, do you think Ms Jackson-if-you're-Nasty herself serenaded Whoopi with renditions of her fabulous "Whoops Now!" track from her amazing 1993 album Janet? I like to imagine that she did.

Today is Whoopi's 55th birthday and she somehow managed to take time away from pretending to not be insulted by everything Elizabeth Hasselback says on The View to film For Colored Girls, so why not go celebrate Whoops' birthday by going to the cinema for a rare big screen glimpse of her? That she co-stars alongside the likes of Jackson, Lorette Devine, Thandie Newton, Phylicia Rishad, »

Ghost Adventures: My “Hunt for the Evidence”

I’d like to commemorate this article to the men and women who serve and have served in the United States Armed Forces. It’s their sacrifice that allows us our freedom and rights. Though we all may not agree on the basis of which any war is being fought, I feel it is necessary that we always stand behind and support the troops.

Week Eight: U.S.S. Hornet

The U.S.S Hornet CV-12 was constructed in the height of World War II. Shortly after being commissioned the ship became one of the key players in the battle for the pacific alongside the famous “Enterprise” air carrier. After WWII the U.S.S. Hornet went on to serve in two more wars and the 1969 Apollo Space Craft recovery effort before being retired in 1970. Many years later in 1998 the ship became the “U. »

The Women of Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls

7 November 2010 7:26 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Tyler Perry is no stranger to tackling serious subject matter and neither does he shy away from it. In his latest film for Lionsgate, he has brought together quite a gathering of talented female actors for the movie For Colored Girls. With the combined strength of their star power alone, this movie could bring quite a draw.

For Colored Girls is an adaptation of Ntozake Shange’s award nominated play For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. Originally a choreopoem, the movie has a cast of eight women of color and follows along the original work’s lyrical structure. The focus of the film is how such weighty topics such as the betrayal of infidelity, abandonment, rape, abortion and love affect women, but especially those of color.

Interested by the gravity of the subject matter in this story, I wanted to take a closer look »

The Rundown: James Rocchi talks with Lane Kneedler, associate director of programming for the AFI Film Festival, about the decision to host the Los Angeles event free of charge throughout its span from Nov. 4 through the 11. Kneedler explained, “From a programming perspective, it was very liberating and encouraging… We found that audiences would go see more challenging films, would take more risks, and were more adventurous in their choices if tickets were free.” The fest kicks off at 7:30pm Pst tonight with the world premiere of “Love and Other Drugs.”

24 Frames: Steven Zeitchik believes that studios with politically-themed flicks this year made a calculated decision to wait until after the midterm elections that took place on Tuesday — consider “Fair Game” and “Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer” (this Friday), “The King’s Speech” (11/26), “The Company Men” (12/10), and “Casino Jack” (12/17) — because “it was better to steer clear »
