Years ago, somewhere between “When Animals Attack” and “Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?,” I suggested that some struggling network, like Upn back when it existed, should hand its programming schedule over to Darnell, with this disclaimer: “Try not to get anyone killed.” Given a free rein beyond that, my guess was he could substantially improve their audience, in the same way Faye Dunaway’s character did in the movie “Network” (which appears especially prescient in terms of certain Darnell-developed titles.)
In truth, nobody is meant to hang around in one of these jobs for close to two decades, and even with the enviable freedom he was granted by Fox, Darnell’s “golden gut” (to use a description once used in »

As promised earlier today, ABC has released the official trailer for its upcoming new series "Resurrection," and we have a look at it for you right here. Again, no premiere date has been announced, but we expect more info soon.
"Resurrection" is expected to be a limited series, airing just 12 to 13 episodes per season.
The people of Arcadia, Missouri, are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia; and an Immigration agent, Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, »

We already knew ABC had picked up "Resurrection" (formerly "The Returned") as a new series on its roster, and today we were hoping to learn what night of the week it will be airing on. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait a little while longer.

But the network added the following to its press release: "Please note shows picked up but not listed on the schedule will debut later in the 2013-14 season." In addition, "Resurrection" will be a limited series, airing just 12 to 13 episodes per season.

ABC’ opened the floodgates on Friday evening, ordering seven new dramas and five comedies for the 2013-14 season.
“Shield,” the drama loosely linked to Marvel’s “Avengers” film franchise, has been a hot property ever since it came together last summer. A sneak peek of ABC Studios’ “Shield” will run Sunday in the season finale of “Once Upon a Time.”

Even before Tom Cruise's "Oblivion" opened in North America on Thursday night, the 50-year-old must have been grinning his famous grin. Before the movie had sold a single ticket here, it was a surefire hit. In his native land, Cruise takes a lot of ribbing, whether for his headline-generating personal life (especially since 2005, the year of the couch-jump) or for the seeming shrinkage of his star-power (again, especially since 2005). The estimated $38.2 million "Oblivion" earned this weekend marked his biggest domestic opening since "Mission: Impossible III" seven years ago. Some will call it a comeback, others will call it a fluke or last hurrah from a middle-aged action hero desperately trying to hold on to his relevance in an industry that relentlessly moves on to the next big (young) thing. But the truth is, Cruise has been a remarkably consistent box office winner, even since he started raising eyebrows eight »

Tom Cruise has quite the impressive list of leading ladies! The 51-year-old actor has starred with Hollywood's biggest actresses, like ex-wife Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut, Demi Moore in A Few Good Men and Renée Zellweger in the '90s classic Jerry Maguire. His latest gorgeous gal? Oblivion costar Olga Kurylenko, who has been all over the globe with Cruise recently promoting their sci-fi flick. To prepare for Oblivion, which hits theaters Friday, let's take a look back at his most memorable female movie counterparts. »
Tomorrow, Major League Baseball will celebrate its annual Jackie Robinson Day, and all players and umpires will wear jerseys with the number 42, which Robinson, the first African-American player in the Mlb, made famous. Don’t be surprised if the execs at Warner Bros. join in on the fun. The studio did have a grand slam weekend, after all.
Warner Bros.’ new baseball drama 42 topped the box office with $27.3 million — far ahead of recent baseball titles like Moneyball ($19.5 million debut) and Trouble with the Curve ($12.2 million). In fact, 42 scored the best ever debut for a baseball film, surpassing The Benchwarmers’ $19.7 million bow. »

They see everything and say nothing, inhabiting a half-way world full of contradictions. But what are the five best films about live-in domestics?
This week's Clip joint is by Claire Adas, an independent film-maker and freelance writer based in Lambertville, NJ. Claire writes about film, food and life at her blog Out of the Ordinary. If you've got an idea for a future Clip joint, drop an email to email@example.com.
They might live in your home, but they're not part of the family. They know more about you than any of your acquaintances, but you wouldn't call them friends. They care for your most treasured possessions, or they care for your greatest treasure of all – your children – but they're not accorded the admiration of a person who owns fine things, or the respect of a parent. Such is the strange existence of live-in domestics, men and »

"Millions of galaxies of hundreds of millions of stars, in a speck on one in a blink. That’s us, lost in space." — Vincent, Collateral
Though he's most widely known for his action movies — the Mission: Impossible movies, in particular — superstar actor Tom Cruise has also starred in a handful of sci-fi movies in his career, including War of the Worlds (2005), his highest grossing domestic release to date. After an eight-year hiatus from sci-fi, Cruise will return to the genre on April 19th in Oblivion, a post-apocalyptic epic from director Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) in which Cruise plays one of the last drone (read: clone) workers on an Earth that is all but abandoned following a devastating war with an alien race known as the Scavs.
In anticipation of Oblivion's imminent release, we thought this would be a great time to look back on Cruise's rather extensive filmography to determine, »

The gay marriage debate is a hot topic among celebrities as the Supreme Court hears arguments in the case of California's Prop. 8, which amends the state's Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Many celebrities have made their opinion on the issue known by participating in the NOH8 campaign, produced by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska.
Some stars went so far as to travel to Washington D.C. to attend the Supreme Court proceedings Tuesday (March 26). The Huffington Post reports "A Few Good Men" director Rob Reiner paid someone to stand in line so that he would be first to enter the courtroom. "Milk" director Dustin Lance Black also told his Facebook fans he would be in attendance.
Katy Perry was present in spirit outside the courthouse as public demonstrators danced to her music, while fending off the Westboro Baptist Church protesters. Still, many celebs were happy to weigh in from afar. Here »
Is this the man who wrecked the buffet at the Harrow Club?
Why, yes it is — and he’s got his son with him.

In a bit of news that seems more at home in a Hollywood comedy, one Chinese mayor has suggested that real-life judges take a cue from foreign action films and courtroom dramas when deciding the outcome of important cases. Huang Quifan, the leader of the Chinese city of Chongqing, might have been taking his movie fandom a bit too seriously when he addressed a panel at the People's Congress in Beijing on Monday and said that those genres -- which most moviegoers consider pure escapism meant for entertainment purposes only -- could actually help judges better perform their duties. According to a story by news site China.com.cn and translated by The Hollywood Reporter, Huang told the panel that hero-driven action tales would instill in justices the notion that good always wins out over evil, and inspire them to render decisions rationally rather than emotionally when weighing the facts of a case. »

Rob Reiner is, like his prospective audience for the upcoming “And So It Goes…," perhaps a little past his best. Spool back to the mid-nineties, and he is to be found on top of his game, with a diverse portfolio of smash hits which not only brought home the bacon but endured (to 2013 at least) in the pop psyche of a generation. This is the guy behind “Stand by Me,” “This is Spinal Tap,” “When Harry Met Sally…” and “A Few Good Men.” 'Nuff said. The picture today, though, is a little different. Reiner has presided over a string of nonentity releases, the latest of which, “The Magic of Belle Isle”, pulled off the formidable achievement of both starring Morgan Freeman and flopping colossally at the box office. In a valiant effort to recover some of his old form, however, Reiner has signed to direct the retirement-age romcom “And So It Goes… »

"Dude, where's my car?" ... some of the best movie lines in the history of cinema -- but Aaron Sorkin says the #1 quote is straight out of the '70s.

Since the new Beverly Hills Cop TV series from The Shield creator Shawn Ryan already has Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) lined up to star as Axel Foley’s son, Aaron, it’s time to round up a supporting cast for the CBS pilot.
In addition to Eddie Murphy producing and guest-starring in the pilot as his film franchise character, Axel Foley, now the chief of police, comedian and character actor Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men) has also joined the cast along with David Denman, who you might know better as Roy from The Office.
In case you haven’t been keeping up with the news, the Beverly Hills Cop series has a pilot order and plans to be a continuation of the film series that starred Murphy. But this time it’ll be Aaron Foley who deals ...

Kevin Bacon's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame pales in comparison to what he did to earn it. The actor's career has spanned 35 years and included versatile roles in hit films like Footloose (1984), Diner (1982), Flatliners (1990), Wild Things (1998), A Few Good Men (1992), JFK (1991), Apollo 13 (1995), Tremors (1990), and more. What he hasn't done is television. Until now. After a long look around, the 54 year-old has found the series he's been looking for; a character-driven thriller called The Following (TV). The show airs Monday nights on Fox at 9/8c, and already has Bacon-aters buzzing. In an era where crime dramas dominate ratings on most major networks, the folks in The Following came ready to play..and to win amongst viewers. Bacon's name alone was a big draw, but add to that a compelling story line that involves a diabolical cult leader/serial killer named Dr. Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and Bacon's »

For a filmmaker, it’s rare to make a real impact with your debut feature. Most of the time, you begin your career with a calling-card movie or a work that doesn’t fully express your true talent. There are, however, certain instances when a director is able to wow audiences and leave his or her mark on the film world right from the get-go.
This year, we’ve seen Benh Zeitlin make his debut with a film that many absolutely love in Beasts of the Southern Wild. Zeitlin’s freshman feature has been mentioned as one of the top debuts by a filmmaker in some time, so that got me thinking: What are the 10 best of all time?
Of course, there’s some level of subjectivity to this kind of a list. If I were strictly going off of my personal favorite debuts, people such as Judd Apatow, »
