AMC, the network behind The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels, Mad Men and Breaking Bad, are putting together a new drama pilot called Line of Sight. This one has a bit of a science fiction flavor and the network has selected the Oscar-winning director of The Silence of the Lambs, Mr. Jonathan Demme, to direct and produce.
The hour-long pilot is being called a “genre-bending odyssey,” according to THR.
Demme has worked in television before. He has been the director for a handful of episodes of HBO’s Enlightened and Demme directed and executive produced the short-lived, but formidable drama, CBS’ A Gifted Man, which starred Patrick Wilson. Though that one had a double medical drama bent, it also had a touch of the paranormal, with Wilson’s character being visited by the ghost of his deceased ex-wife.
In addition to The Silence of the Lambs, Demme also directed big screen offerings, »

We all love the classics, but sometimes one needs to look forward by assessing the present. With summer around the corner many of us find a little extra time on our hands. And even if not, it’s never too late to completely abandon one’s responsibilities for some high quality escapism.
With current heavy-hitters like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones having recently wrapped up their seasons and veterans of the new American golden age of television such as Breaking Bad and Dexter airing their final episodes ever, many TV aficionados may feel a cold, hollow absence in the pits of their souls. Instead of running through the entirety of Firefly (again) to fill the void, these lost viewers may want to catch up on the best new series renewed for second seasons that escaped their attention – after all, there are only so many hours in a day – or anticipate some more newcomers. »

While the question is moot in the short run – at the moment, the guy’s a little busy recovering from brain-cooking encephalitis and being manipulated by a serial killer – it’s certainly something star Hugh Dancy is considering as his gory NBC drama reaches the end of its freshman season.
Can Dancy’s tormented profiler ever be a good, healthy match for Caroline Dhavernas‘ Alana? Here, the British actor gives TVLine his thoughts on the more-than-friendly pair and hints at what Dr. Lecter’s »

Last year, the Alamo Drafthouse organized a screening of The Princess Bride, and around that time they released their first-ever movie-themed wines. This was the first wave of what would become an entire line of movie-themed wines released under the Drafthouse umbrella. Now they are back at it again, and what better film to pair with wine than Jonathan Demme’s psychological thriller, The Silence of The Lambs. In addition, Caesar Moreno was asked to design a couple of new one-sheets to help celebrate. These posters will go on sale this Thursday via the Mondo website. Check the Mondo Twitter feed for more info.

Is there anything the Alamo Drafthouse can’t do? First they have arguably the best theater on the planet in Austin, and then they have Mondo, a company that makes the best movie posters in the business, and now they’re delving into… grapes.
Because Silence Of The Lambs gets you thirsty, the Alamo Drafthouse’s two signature wines for 2013 are the Cannibal Chianti and the Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio, each priced at $32 a bottle. This announcement is bolstered by two new Mondo posters by Caesar Moreno, which you can find in the gallery below. They go on sale Thursday, May 30 at a random time, on their Twitter: @MondoNews.
Here’s the descriptions of the wines:
“The Cannibal Chianti” is a Docg wine from a vineyard situated between Florence and Sienna. It is a blend of 85% Sangiovese, balanced with smaller contributions of Canaiolo and Malvasia del Chianti. The nose is »

As you already know, gourmet serial killer Hannibal Lecter is known to enjoy a nice Chianti with his dinner... so it was only a matter of time before the fine folks at the Alamo Drafthouse would create a signature wine in his honor. After the success of the Princess Bride-themed wine “The Bottle of Wits” last year, the Alamo followed up with two new offerings for 2013: "The Cannibal Chianti," in tribute to Lecter; and the "Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio," dedicated to fellow Silence of the Lambs killer Jamie “Buffalo Bill” Gumb (known not for his eating habits, but for his unique fashion sense). The labels and packaging, designed by Helms Workshop in Austin, contain many detailed references to The Silence of the Lambs, which makes this a must-have for fans of the film. Limited-run gift sets feature a bag of fava beans (emblazoned with a red dragon) and a »

Last year the Alamo Drafthouse inaugurated their signature wine series featuring classic movie themes with the inaugural Princess Bride-inspired "Bottle of Wits" Inconceivable Cab and As You Wish White.
Today, Alamo revealed their second wines in the limited edition series: The Cannibal Chianti and Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio, inspired by Jonathan Demme's Academy award-winning 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs. The wines will be available at The Silence of the Lambs Feast at select Alamo Drafthouse locations nationwide -- the Austin event will be held June 19 at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter. I had the chance to sample the wines as well as the feast at a press preview on Tuesday night at the Slaughter location.

Alamo Drafthouse has announced a pair of limited edition signature wines inspired by Jonathan Demme's 1991 Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs along with dinners and posters in support of the wine launch.
From the Press Release:
After the success of last year's The Princess Bride-inspired "The Bottle of Wits," the Alamo is now making an oenophilic nod to noted gourmand, wine connoisseur, and psychopath Hannibal Lecter for this year's "The Cannibal Chianti" and another to elusive lotion enthusiast Buffalo Bill for the "Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio." Both wines will be available at all Alamo Drafthouse locations and online at silenceofthelambswine.com beginning today, May 29, 2013.

The Silence of the Lambs is one of those films, like The Shining, like Psycho, that has become so much a part of our DNA we must celebrate them again and again. »

The Alamo Drafthouse brand has grown exponentially over the past few years, a fact that can almost certainly be attributed to the company’s willingness to try fun, new things. Of course the ascent of Mondo has helped matters, but the Drafthouse brand has also grown to include film distribution (with an Oscar nomination right outta the gate), a neverending series of specialty screenings, Fantastic Fest, and much more. Included amongst that “and much more”? Movie-themed wines. Last year, the Drafthouse released a pair of Princess Bride-themed wines, and apparently their venture into wine country was successful enough to develop another pair of cinema-themed potables. And what better film to pair with wine than Jonathan Demme’s psychological thriller, The Silence of The Lambs? Take a look at the new wines—and the Mondo posters being released in support of their arrival—after the jump. Last year, the Alamo Drafthouse »

So, making some fava beans for dinner tonight? Looking for the right wine to pair with your meal? Well, Alamo Drafthouse has got you (creepily) covered. Taking movie fandom to the next level, they've launched two signature wines inspired by "The Silence Of The Lambs," and yes, they are real and you can order them. To help get the word out, they've drafted Mondo to create two pretty solid new posters for the flick/wines. Caesar Moreno has designed the new one-sheets to help celebrate "Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio" and "The Cannibal Chianti," and they are certainly a far cry from you standard wine promos. Indeed, Alamo is going all out, presenting The Silence of the Lambs Feasts at locations nationwide across the country with a four-course meal including the wines, and yes, a fancied up version of liver and fava beans (menu below).

Warning: Spoilers Running Free.
Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.
Seeing as how it's used once again in "Star Trek Into Darkness," let's cite five recent examples of this cliché in the hopes that we can declare a moratorium on it ... at least until it counts as nostalgia.
Culprit #1: 'The Dark Knight' (2008)
Mastermind: The Joker (Heath Ledger)
