'The Flash' Sneak Peek: Barry Allen Freaks Out Over His 'Groundhog Day' Dilemma!

24 March 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

History is about to be rewritten -- and it's not going to be pretty.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is in for a major case of deja vu on tonight's episode of The Flash, which picks up immediately after last week's game-changer when it dawns on him that he has to relive the same day over again. Considering how bonkers that day turned out to be, it's not something Barry's too happy about.

In ETonline's exclusive sneak peek from "Rogue Time," Barry isn't handling the consequences of his time reversal well. Unfortunately, the only person he can turn to is Dr. Wells, ahem, Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh).

"You ruptured the time continuum, didn't you? You're experiencing temporal reversion," Dr. Wells tells Barry, as the two frantically try to make sense of what is happening. Fortunately the future that he's lived through once may still be in their grasp.

Paradigm Signs “The Incident’s’ Isaac Ezban (Exclusive)

23 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scribe-helmer Isaac Ezban, director of “The Incident” and “The Similars,” two elevated psychological sci-fi movies that establish Ezban as an distinctive voice on the Hispanic auteur genre scene, has been signed by Paradigm Talent Agency for representation.

Combining two stories — two brothers and a detective locked on an infinite stairwell; a family on an endless road to the beach – “The Incident,” Ezban’s feature debut, has been described as “an ultra-dark version of ‘Groundhog Day’ directed by Rod Serling.”

The Incident” premiered at September’s Austin Fantastic Fest, then went on to play at Busan, Sitges, Buenos Aires and more events. Written and directed by Ezban, it has run up eight prizes to date, including the Fox Mexico Premier Award at Los Cabos, which comprised the acquisition of Latin American pay TV rights, as well as a best picture win at Mexico’s Morbido Fest, one of Latin America’s most important fantastic film events. »

Check out the gams on Bill Murray!

The Groundhog Day star showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday dressed as a cowgirl during a taping in Austin, Texas amid all the South by Southwest festivities.

News: Bill Murray Takes George Clooney to His Favorite Greek Restaurant -- See the Pic!

"He is a one-man festival on his own," Kimmel quipped before Murray made his show-stopping entrance on a horse.

Next up, the 64-year-old actor took a shot of tequila with the host and was more than willing to reveal his Ncaa bracket for March Madness.

The sports talk didn't stop there. Murray also shared the tips he gives his son who coaches college basketball. "I see the phone ringing [on TV] in his pocket and he's not answering his phone," Murray said.

Murray is always good for a good time. Case in point, this video of him dancing to "Turn Down for What."

StreamFix: 5 Netflix options that remind you why the legends rule

18 March 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The weekend is approaching. You deserve legendary Netflix entertainment. Check out our five picks starring legendary entertainers proving why they're fantastic.  Robert Redford is a bad-ass with a ladies' Wimbledon haircut in "Three Days of the Condor" There was a magical time called 1975 in which Robert Redford was indistinguishable from Martina Navratilova. Celebrate that sacred hour with "Three Days of the Condor," the caper starring Redford as a CIA analyst who goes into hiding with a sultry Brooklyn Heights dame (Faye Dunaway) as foes zero in on him. Plenty of Oscar cred here: In addition to Dunaway, John Houseman and Cliff Robertson have key roles, and nominee Max von Sydow scares the hell out of you as an Alsatian assassin. Bill Murray makes monotony a joy in "Groundhog Day" It took me until this year to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and I've decided Andie MacDowell does have a certain something. »

Did 'The Flash' Blow Everything Up? Stars & Boss Explain the Game-Changing Twists!

17 March 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Huge spoilers ahead from Tuesday’s game-changing time-travel episode, “Out of Time.” If you’ve already seen the episode, you are safe to read on. If not, what are you doing here?!

Holy moly, did The Flash just rewrite history?

The CW’s breakout hit appeared to blow everything up (and we mean everything) in Tuesday’s game-changing episode, “Out of Time.” From Barry’s first experience with time travel and the reveal of Dr. Harrison Wells’ true identity to Iris learning the truth about The Flash and Cisco’s not-so-permanent (but still heartbreaking) death, The Flash didn’t hold back any punches. But, will they all stick? The short answer: It’s … complicated.

The Hitman: Agent 47 trailer & the videogame movie problem

17 March 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There are some excellent videogame-influenced movies out there. They're just not based on videogames...

Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter: The Movie, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Doom, Doa: Dead or Alive, Max Payne, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D.

No, no, this isn’t a list of the worst movies ever made. It’s a choice selection of films from the last 20 years that have been based on videogames. And as you can see, it makes for grim reading. But why is that?

But before we get into that, some brief history.

“Videogames can never be art.”

Despite the huge success of the gaming industry, which is now the most profitable form of entertainment, videogames are still seen an inferior art form. The late, great Roger Ebert famously kicked a beehive in 2010 when he proclaimed that “Videogames can never be art.”, Long story short, »

'Edge of Tomorrow' Infographic Counts the Deaths of Tom Cruise

10 March 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Even though Edge of Tomorrow, or Live Die Repeat as it's been rebranded, didn't do well at the theatrical box office, it's thankfully found the audience it deserves on home video. The film starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt isn't just another sci-fi blockbuster as it takes the familiar Groundhog Day premise, delivers some killer action but also throws in a surprising amount of comedy. Now a fan of the film has decided to create an infographic charting every single time William Cage (Cruise) dies in the film. Keep in mind, these are only the deaths we see as much more time and deaths pass off camera. Look below now! Here's George Hatzis' clean, simple infographic for Tom Cruise's deaths in Edge of Tomorrow (via Cbm): Edge of Tomorrow is set in the distant future during war between a race of aliens called Mimics and the human race. »

30 Comedy Movie Mistakes So Funny They Hurt

5 March 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's one simple reason we watch comedies: to laugh. So, let's face it, a comedy doesn't need a perfect plot, sharp editing, or great camerawork to be considered a classic. But that doesn't mean movie mistakes are any less intriguing. Great comedies like "Groundhog Day" and "Anchorman" can easily brush off the occasional continuity error, though there's no guarantee that we, as viewers, will just overlook them.

In that spirit, check out the gallery below for 30 comedy "oops" moments.. As usual, all photos come courtesy of MovieMistakes.com. »

Second Opinion – Project Almanac (2015)

21 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Project Almanac, 2015

Directed by Dean Israelite

Starring  Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-d’Elia, Sam LernerAllen Evangelista, Virginia Gardner and Amy Landecker

Synopsis:

A found-footage teen-flick, whereby our college-applying scientists find a clock-rewinding contraption in the basement…

Creating a time travel movie that doesn’t have any leaky gaps in its plot is a very tricky thing to pull off. Similarly creating a found-footage movie that doesn’t feel contrived or forced is also very difficult to get right. Combine the two together and Dean Israelite really had a hard task on his hands to make this found footage time travel movie make sense while never feeling too gimmicky. And to his credit, he mostly succeeds. But some sloppy writing choices and half baked ideas really hold back Project Almanac from what could have been a great sci-fi movie.

Firstly, you need to have your time travel rules written down so »

'Blood Simple' to Albert Brooks: Why Spring of 1985 was something special

20 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are roughly 900,000 tribute pieces online this week about the 1985 John Hughes film "The Breakfast Club," and I understand the motivation. If you were the right age when the film was released (I was 15 at the time), that movie felt like a lightning bolt right to the face. Hughes treated teenagers like they were actual people with complex emotional lives worthy of respect, and while that would seem to be a logical approach to writing about any character, it certainly didn't feel average when he did it. He wrote about that secret world of teenagers with what felt like laser accuracy, and he basically created an entire industry of movies that tried to tap into that same audience. So certainly, there is much to celebrate when looking back at that particular film, but when I went to look at a list of the films that came out in 1985, a year »

‘Grand Budapest Hotel,’ ‘True Detective’ Top WGA Awards

14 February 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wes Anderson’s whimsical script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the Writers Guild of America award for original screenplay, while Graham Moore’s script for codebreaking thriller “The Imitation Game” won for adapted screenplay.

HBO’s “True Detective” and FX’s “Louie” each took a pair of TV trophies.

“Alan Turing is the person for who we made this film,” Moore said in his acceptance speech at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles. “It is on the shoulders of his genius that we made this film.”

Anderson, who shares story credit with Hugo Guiness, recalled in his acceptance speech that it was appropriate to receive the award in Century City since he had worked with longtime collaborator Owen Wilson at a nearby motel many years ago.

“I can think of no greater neighborhood to accept this award in,” Anderson added.

WGA Awards 2015: Honoree Harold Ramis Led Quiet Revolution in Comedy

12 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The business of comedy writing in film is often a criminally under-laurelled one, and in life, multitalented writer-director-actor Harold Ramis only picked up a single screenwriting award (a Bafta for “Groundhog Day”) for a scripting career that spanned from “Animal House” to “Ghostbusters,” “Caddyshack” and “Back to School.”

Now the posthumous recipient of the WGA’s Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement, Ramis joins an august group of fellow funnymen including Mel Brooks, Blake Edwards, Paul Mazursky and Norman Krasna, and it’s hard to argue he doesn’t belong in their company.

During his decade-plus heyday, Ramis was the quietest kind of auteur, sculpting a new model for the modern comedy that came so naturally its novelty was easy to miss. Rooted in the frantic, countercultural anarchy of sketch comedy (his pre-film career included stints with National Lampoon and “Sctv”), Ramis’ work easily incorporated the rhythms of classic screwball comedy, »

'Flash' Time Travel Episode Is a 'Terminator'/'Back to the Future' Mashup

3 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, it was revealed that The CW's hit series The Flash will introduce a time travel element in the 15th episode. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the show's executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teased more details about the show, revealing that it combines both the good and bad aspects of time travel. Here's what he had to say, teasing that the episode will be a mashup of The Terminator and Back to The Future.

"There's an episode coming up where there is inadvertent connection to the Speed Force that results in probably our funniest hour as well as our darkest hour as the dangers of time travel come to light. It's a mashup between Back to The Future and Terminator-the good version of time travel and the bad version of time travel."

"The Flash" Time Travel To Change The Show

3 February 2015 8:27 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The CW's hit series "The Flash" is slated to introduce a time travel element in the fifteenth episode of the season. Ahead of that, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells Entertainment Weekly that this new power will have consequences both good and bad for the characters:

"There's an episode coming up where there is inadvertent connection to the Speed Force that results in probably our funniest hour as well as our darkest hour as the dangers of time travel come to light. It's a mashup between Back to The Future and Terminator-the good version of time travel and the bad version of time travel."

The show's star Grant Gustin says the episode is also influenced by the 1993 comedy "Groundhog Day" which will see Barry accidentally traveling at first, and then coming to realise the power that comes with what he's doing:

"It's a complete accident the first time [he time travels]. It's really confusing »

The Flash time travel episodes will be “a mashup between Back to the Future and Terminator”

3 February 2015 7:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Even though yesterday was Groundhog Day, The Flash star Grant Gustin has been using the movie as a comparison for the upcoming time travel episodes of the series.

“It’s a complete accident the first time [he time travels],” Gustin told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s really confusing because now we’re playing with timelines and we’re having to shoot things a couple different ways. It’s like a Groundhog’s Day-type element. It’s really funny and really exciting.”

“He’s not handling it incredibly well. It’s freaking him out a little bit,” Gustin continues. “He realizes, ‘Holy s**t, this an opportunity to change things with my family’s past,’ He doesn’t know yet to maybe not do that, but that’s where Barry’s at when he realizes what he’s just learned that he can do, that he can maybe save his mom.”
