Scully hearts science. After nine seasons of The X-Files and two films, that fact about Dana Scully—played by Emmy winner Gillian Anderson—is pretty well known. While Mulder (David Duchovny) eventually swayed Scully to his side (at least about some issues), she was pretty steadfast in believing there was a scientific explanation for everything. Even baby aliens. Now, thanks to the Internet and YouTuber Ryan English, Scully's love of science has been remixed with a beat you can dance to. Get down with your bad self. Anderson recently popped up in NBC's Crisis and recurs on Hannibal. She's also starring in the new season of The Fall opposite 50 Shades of Grey star Jamie »
Ancient aliens visiting earth, guiding early man. In the 70's, with the popularity of Erich von Däniken's book and Harald Reinl's film Chariot of the Gods, they were a hot topic. The Nazca Lines, Pyramids of Giza, and other wonders suggest the use of technology unavailable to people of the period.
This, and the scattered ancient artwork on several continents that suggests flying machines and men in spacesuits, drove a paranormal fad into a pop culture phenomenon.
While much of the evidence related to the ancient astronaut theory has been refuted, it's difficult to debunk much of the artistic evidence left behind by ancient men, and the latest discovery of this kind of graphic evidence is in India.
The Times of India is reporting the discovery of ancient cave paintings in the relatively remote state of Chhattisgarh. These paintings depict humanoids who appear to be wearing suits with »

Trevor Hogg chats with Rob McLachlan about cycling, founding a production company, and working within the realms of film and television…
Before becoming a Primetime Emmy nominated cinematographer Rob McLachlan (Game of Thrones) was heading down a different career path which saw him become a Canadian Cycling Champion and Canada Games Gold medallist. “I was at the point that I was going to have to quit school and go train. I was on a shortlist to potentially ride in the Montreal Olympics but you couldn’t make a living at it back then unless you went to Europe and went whole hog. At the same time I was into photography and making Super 8 films. I got bitten by that bug. When I was looking at making a career that seemed like the best. My father was a commercial illustrator and painter who drilled into my brother and I that it »

That noise you can hear? It's Lucy Lawless, somewhere in an L.A. mansion, repeatedly shouting "House!", because she's finally filled up her geek TV bingo card.
After winning geekdom's heart with her name-making role in Xena: Warrior Princess, Lawless went on to parts in The X-Files (just a small one), Battlestar Galactica (a pretty big one), and Spartacus: War Of The Damned (a major one), and memorably dropping in on Curb Your Enthusiasm to play herself along the way.
Now, Lawless is stepping on to the Helicarrier with a role in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season two. Who she'll be playing, and for how long, is being kept under wraps for now, but expect that question to be asked and ummed about during this week's Sdcc.

The ’90s were sort of weird. Everyone’s clothes were too big for them, and there was a lot of sincerity going around. It was also a time when some of today’s biggest stars weren’t such big stars yet, and randomly appeared on some of your favorite TV shows. Whether it was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo or the dominating story arc of an entire episode, everyone from a young Ryan Reynolds to Yoko Ono made a guest appearance on shows as disparate as The X-Files and Mad About You.
If you want to find out which basketball star showed up to face-off against Uncle Jesse on Full House, or which iconic musical powerhouse appeared on Smart Guy, you’ll need to click through our gallery. Take a trip down memory lane with ’90s cameos from Coolio, Britney Spears, and even Nancy Kerrigan. There are some you might remember, »

(Cbr) It’s all "Groundhog Day’s" fault. The 1993 comedy hit, which stars Bill Murray as a snarky weatherman forced to re-live the same day over and over again until he becomes a better person, made the idea of a time loop a very popular narrative device for movies and television — and for good reason. There isn’t one person who hasn’t had a day they wish they could take a mulligan on. It’s a very relatable idea, and it’s easy to see why Hollywood keeps going back to the time-loop well. With "Edge of Tomorrow" becoming the latest member of the “Groundhog Day-ing It Club,” Spinoff looks back at some of the most memorable TV and movie do-overs. “Cause and Effect” ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") Actually, maybe we should blame this fifth season episode of Tng, which aired in 1992 — a year before "Groundhog Day. »

Last summer's R-rated ghost story "The Conjuring" was scary. Like really, really scary. Like, if something happened to the projector during our 10 am press screening on a warm, bright summer day, and the film would have been interrupted or cancelled, then we would have been completely okay with that. Others felt the same way, and the movie scared up over $300 million in worldwide box office. That's enough for Warner Bros and New Line to begin building a franchise around the film - while a sequel is tentatively scheduled for next year, a spin-off has already been shot and will be coming out this Halloween. The subject of the spin-off is the super creepy doll from the first movie. That's right, folks: get ready for 90 minutes of "Annabelle." The first teaser trailer dropped today; watch it with the lights on.
While the trailer doesn't give us much in the way of story, »

4 newcomers to Game Of Thrones will be directing a brace of episodes each for season 5...
A number of changes are afoot in terms of the team going behind the camera for Game Of Thrones season five. Notably, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (who directed season three's Walk Of Punishment and season four's Two Swords) won't have directors' credits on any of the season five episodes.
We already knew that stalwart GoT director Alex Graves was taking a season-long break and planning to return for the sixth run, leaving a sizeable gap in the roster, and it's now been confirmed that regulars Michelle Maclaren and Alik Sakharov will also be joining him in their absence for season five (Maclaren is busy with Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul alongside directing stints on HBO's The Leftovers, while Sakharov is working on pirate drama Black Sails).
Toward the end of March Amazon Studios gave Chris Carter's "The After" a series order, but we didn't know when it would debut or how many episodes it would have in its first season. Well, we still don't quite know the former, but we do have some info on the latter...
So far Amazon has slotted "The X-Files" creator's new project for eight episodes, but if Carter has his way, it'll run for at least 99. As he told reporters during Amazon's summer Television Critics Association press tour session, he based the mystery-focused "The After" on Dante's Inferno.
The Divine Comedy, which is comprised of Inferno plus Purgatorio and Paradiso, has 99 cantos in its story (along with an introduction). "I'm using that as my model," Carter revealed.
Other than "early 2015," Amazon hasn't announced the show's exact release date, but per THR, it's not following the "binge" model of all episodes hitting at once. »

Amazon Studios held court on Saturday at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills, where they shared fresh sneak peeks at four of their new series — dramas Bosch and The After, and half-hours Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle — and then hinted at time frames for their respective launches.

The closest critics came to nailing down a premiere “date” was a “late September” debut for Transparent, Six Feet Under scribe Jill Soloway’s Jeffrey Tambor-fronted dramedy about a Los Angeles family with boundary issues.
Soloway also revealed that, »
“X-Files” creator Chris Carter will soon return to screens with Amazon Studios’ “The After,” more than ten years after Fox’s cult sci-fi hit left the air. While an airdate for the Amazon Prime Instant Video series has yet to be announced beyond an “early 2015″ window, during a panel at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour, Carter did confirm that the series will debut on a week-by-week basis instead of the entire season being released at once (the opposite model to fellow Amazon series “Transparent,” which will bow all ten of its half-hour episodes in late September).
Carter admitted that he “needed a good break” following the conclusion of “The X-Files,” since he’d spent “10 years of output [and] needed the equivalent input” in order to recharge creatively.
In “The After,” eight strangers are thrown together by mysterious forces and must help each other survive in a violent world that defies explanation. »

Chris Carter has big plans for Amazon Studios' The After. The X-Files creator is modeling his latest sci-fi drama, which currently has an eight-episode order, with a bold 99-episode plan. You heard that right: 99 episodes. Photos 'The Good Wife,' Tatiana Maslany and 18 More of the Biggest Emmy Snubs Carter, who took a lengthy break following the wrap-up of The X-Files on Fox (he spent his time off reading, watching The Shield and The Wire, "climing mountains," surfing), made his declaration Saturday afternoon during Amazon's summer Television Critics Association press tour

Binge is the new black: Amazon Studios is taking a cue from streaming rival Netflix in its release of an upcoming series. The TV studio division of the online retailer plans to make available all 10 episodes of its new dark comedy Transparent at the same time this fall. Transparent creator Jill Soloway announced the move to reporters at the show’s Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour panel in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Until about 10 minutes ago, there has been so much conflicting information, if not outright misinformation, about what exactly "Better Call Saul" will be: A straight "Breaking Bad" prequel? A time-bending journey that includes adventures during the reign of Heisenberg? A comedy? A drama with occasional laughs? Huell's story? AMC's press release about the full cast and basic premise and setting fill in some of the details — including that it begins six years before Saul (then known as Jimmy McGill) meets Walter White — and now co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will hopefully bring more of the show (not due to premiere until early 2015) into sharper clarity, without actually giving too much of the fun away. I'll be live-blogging all of Gilligan's charming Virginian self-deprecation, all of Gould's jokes, and whatever nuggets we actually get about the new show. (Note: all times will be Pacific.) 5:10 p.m.: Gould and »

While original X-Men director Bryan Singer was set to direct X-Men: Apocalypse after X-Men: Days of Future Past became an enormous hit at the box office earlier in the year, it has still not been completely confirmed that he will be able to return, due to his pending sexual abuse lawsuit. But if legal issues do tie him up, and someone else is forced to take over, it's clear he's not ready to leave the superhero genre anytime soon. His next project as a director could be an adaptation of Image Comics' Age of Heroes.
Bryan Singer's production company Bat Hat Harry has picked up the title for development. James D. Hudnall created the 90s title, with Alex Hollister writing the screenplay. Marc Berliner is set to produce along with David Engel and Stephen Emery through their House of Confusion production company.
Age of Heroes follows a group of »
