The Scariest Scenes in TV History — IndieWire Critics Survey

23 May 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the scariest moment or scene on TV?

Ben Travers (@BenTTravers), IndieWire

Though there are moments within “Penny Dreadful” (the seance) and “The X-Files” (“Home”) that left me spooked, the title for scariest TV scene has to go to the only show to give me nightmares — actual, legitimate nightmares. After watching the first two episodes of “Hannibal,” I woke up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and haunted by a bright red room with blood running down the walls — twice! Two weeks in a row, “Hannibal” ruined my peaceful slumber, and I had to stop watching the show live (and during the night entirely). Each week, »

‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Mad Men,’ and 7 More TV Series That Should Never Be Made Into Films

23 May 2017 9:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Against all odds, good taste, and common sense, the “Baywatch” movie is washing up on multiplex shores this week. If it’s successful as anticipated, it will likely inspire a new wave of film producers hunting for TV IP. This is a plea to hold fire.

It can work, of course. “Firefly” fans long begged for a movie version of the short-lived Joss Whedon series and got one in “Serenity”; “Deadwood” aficionados are similarly holding out for a big screen version of the HBO series. “Sex and the City,” “Twin Peaks,” “The X-Files,” and “The Simpsons” have all taken a run at the feature-length route, with some very mixed results. And recent hits like “Fargo,” “Friday Night Lights,” and “Westworld” made the reverse jump from movie to series, while Justin Simien’s Sundance premiere “Dear White People” is now enjoying a healthy run as a Netflix series.

Michael Bay says Transformers: The Last Knight “gets us back in the groove” after Age of Extinction

21 May 2017 6:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While the continue to prove immensely popular at the box office, Michael Bay’s Transformers films have certainly suffered diminishing returns in terms of quality, with the most recent instalment Transformers: Age of Extinction hammered by critics, despite its attempts to take the franchise in a new direction.

Nevertheless, Bay is back in the director’s chair for the upcoming fifth instalment Transformers: The Last Knight, and speaking to Empire, the filmmaker has suggested that the latest chapter will get the series “back in the groove” after the disappointing reception for Age of Extinction.

“[Transformers: Age of Extinction] was kind of an outlier,” said Bay. “Because of losing Shia and just figuring out where we were gonna go. It was testing the waters a little bit. This gets us back in the groove.”

Looking beyond The Last Knight, Paramount and Hasbro have big, big plans for the franchise, with a Bumblebee prequel movie set »

The Devil's in the Details: Close-Up on Guillermo Del Toro's "Hellboy"

19 May 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Guillermo Del Toro's Hellboy (2004) is showing on Mubi from May 14 - June 13, 2017 in the United Kingdom.It is hard to imagine a more perfect marriage of director and source material than Guillermo Del Toro with Hellboy. Mike Mignola’s graphic novel series about a demon put to work by the Feds could have been tailor-made for the Mexican fantasy auteur. Hellboy’s panels pit brutish monsters against mad visionaries in dank subterranean crypts, drawing on European folklore and making a fetish of clanking machinery, crumbling ruins and otherworldly magic. Mignola’s primary theme is always the past’s unshakeable hold over the present, the dead’s habit of returning to haunt the living. All of the above are the sort of gothic tropes that have recurred again and again in some form or other throughout Del Toro’s filmography too, »

The X-Files Season 11 to premiere in midseason 2018

17 May 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was announced that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will once again be reuniting with Chris Carter for an eleventh season of The X-Files, and now we have confirmation from Fox that the show will premiere in midseason 2018.

From the official press release:

The next chapter of The X-Files, a thrilling, 10-episode second installment of the event series, once again will be executive-produced by creator Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning in their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. In 2016, The X-Files drew an average multi-platform audience of nearly 16 million viewers and was the season’s No. 2 broadcast drama, as well as the most talked-about event series on Twitter.

Season 10 of The X-Files premiered in January 2016, so late January 2018 seems likely for this next run of episodes of the beloved paranormal drama series. »

Exclusive: David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson Joke About Upfronts Injuries: 'We Had a Fight Over Equal Pay'

16 May 2017 5:07 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Shattering the glass ceiling can leave you with a few scrapes and scratches.

Et caught up with X-Files stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny at the Fox Upfronts in New York City on Monday, which both actors attended despite being a little banged up.

"You [Anderson] show up in crutches, David has a sling on his arm -- what's going on?" asked Et's Leanne Aguilera.

"We had a fight over equal pay," Anderson hilariously quipped back.

The response is likely in reference to the 48-year-old actress' 2016 Vanity Fair interview, in which she revealed that she'd initially been offered half of Duchovny's pay for the X-Files revival.

Meanwhile, Duchovny, 56, attributed his injury to just simple old aging.

"I got old," he told Et. "My arm got old."

Duchovny added that it wasn't an on-set incident that caused the injury, but rather, "just a wear »

Netflix Shouldn’t Let Fans Skip Movie Credits, But We’ll Allow It For TV Shows

16 May 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s kind of impressive, the way Netflix continues to find new ways to piss off cinephiles. The latest move: A “Skip Intro” button that allows viewers to blow past the opening credits of a movie. By pressing the Skip Intro feature for “Forrest Gump,” for example, viewers have been spared two minutes of watching a feather delicately drift to earth while Alan Silvestri’s iconic score plays — instead, the film leaps right to “Screenplay by Eric Roth” and Forrest (Tom Hanks) offering up some chocolates.

Many see the introduction of the “Skip Intro” option on films as insidious, another way in which Netflix is compromising the concept of film as an art form. The feature isn’t available across all films — “Schindler’s List,” for example, is unaffected — but the complaint is a fair one. The opening credits are an opportunity for a filmmaker to set the scene for his or her work, »

The X-Files Musical Episode? Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny Dish Hopes for New Episodes

16 May 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The truth is still out there, but David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson don't know what it is just yet. The X-Files returns to Fox this season—yes, again—but this time for 10 episodes full of Mulder and Scully action as opposed to the last batch of six. When viewers last saw Mulder (Duchovny) and Scully (Anderson), the dynamic duo was on the race to save mankind. "I think I was on the verge of saving the entire universe," Anderson told E! News at Fox's Upfronts. "Chris Carter has not told me yet whether I managed to save the human race. But given that we're doing 10 episodes, one imagines that I save it for 10 episodes worth of time, maybe? Or maybe part of the human race? Well at »

The Best One-Season Wonder TV Shows That Never Got Renewed — IndieWire Critics Survey

16 May 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best one-and-done show, a.k.a. a One-Season Wonder? (This refers to shows that only got one season and tragically did not get renewed, as opposed to limited series that never intended to continue.)

Allison Keene (@KeeneTV), Collider

There are so many! But for me the best will always be “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a show that I watched at an age before I really understood the whole TV renewal/cancellation process, but even then I knew it was unjustly short. The show was such a great blend of smarts, snark, and genuine emotions, in a way that could actually be painful to watch. »

Fox Executives Open to More ‘24,’ ‘Prison Break’

15 May 2017 6:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fans of the most recent incarnations of Fox’s venerable “24” and “Prison Break” won’t see the shows when the network starts up its new fall season – but that doesn’t mean executives won’t consider their return at some point in the future.

The network is set to start talking about the prospect of another run of “24” in the near future, said Gary Newman, chairman-ceo of Fox Television Group, during a conference call Monday to talk about Fox Broadcasting’s new fall schedule. Star Corey Hawkins’ involvement with the latest Broadway incarnation of “Six Degrees of Separation” made considering a new cycle of the series impossible for the fall, he said. Executives were also interested in talking to Howard Gordon, executive producer of the series, to get a sense of potential next creative steps, said Dana Walden, chairman-ceo of Fox Television Group.

Prison Break” was seen as an “event series,” said »

American Gods Renewed For Second Season

12 May 2017 8:14 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

For those who aren’t completely familiar with the television calendar, we are now entering the culling. As the networks get ready for their Upfronts, it becomes time to bring the hammer down on the shows that won’t be returning, which means it is obviously also time to announce renewals.

In the midst of a ton of shows getting killed off over the last few days, Starz has renewed American Gods after the show has barely begun airing, which isn’t that unusual these days, but is surely a great relief to a lot of fans. In the release, Starz announced that the show has managed more than 5 million multiplatform viewers, and that number is growing. That’s an impressive number for a truly bonkers show on a cable network.

Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming for Starz, said, “Bryan Fuller, Michael Green and Neil Gaiman have evolved the art form of television narratively, »
