Kicking things off with news from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and some new concept art found its way online which showed off a new character that we’ve not seen yet. The character goes by the name of Bullhead and is an X-Wing pilot, most likely from Jakku. The source of the images claimed that Bullhead would be not be a CGI character and would instead be a man in make-up, and those rumours were confirmed when this image of him on set leaked online…

Fantasia Film Fest Review: Synchronicity

24 July 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When 2007’s The Signal first hit audiences, it did a hell of a job showing a small glimpse of the capabilities of the film’s trio of writer/directors, David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry. Each director’s segment felt completely different from the previous director’s, and there was a sense of promise that you felt upon watching the film, one that made you know each of the three filmmakers would go onto promising futures in storytelling. Bruckner went on to direct the best segment of the first V/H/S film and is now set to helm the latest Friday The 13th, while Bush directed one of the most memorable films of this year, the sci-fi grounded in reality film The Reconstruction Of William Zero (review). Gentry, following The Signal, focused on solid short films, and the made for MTV slasher series of films, My Super Psycho Sweet 16. »

Showtime has debuted a brand new look at the second season of the hit drama The Affair, which we have for you below…

The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire), Ruth Wilson (Luther), Maura Tierney (E.R.) and Joshua Jackson (Dawson’s Creek), with season two exploring “the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together.”

In a change to the first season, the second will see the story told from four perspectives rather than the original two, which will reveal “four distinct truths.”

Noah Wyle on the time he had to keep up with Drew Roy's push-ups routine

10 July 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Steven Spielberg-produced alien invasion show “Falling Skies” had its final Comic-Con panel today, as the show nears its series finale later this summer. The show graduated from a smaller room at the San Diego Convention Center where its cast was the past few years, to Ballroom 20, which holds about 5,000 people. It was a panel that got plenty of laughs and cheers from that crowd and that showed off the charm, intelligence and humor that this cast has. Read on for highlights from the “Falling Skies” panel. Hal has a particularly “nasty,” “bloody” scene coming up soon — maybe with Pope? Drew Roy teased a scene for his character that’s in episode 5 this season. Here’s how he described it. Our best guess as to who this other actor is? Colin Cunningham, who plays the persistently troublemaking Pope, who hasn’t had a lot of scenes with Hal. Maybe the »

'Under the Dome' Showrunner Neal Baer on Why Broadcast TV Is Just As Daring as Cable

9 July 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After 25 years of writing and eventually showrunning some of television's most popular shows, "Under the Dome" executive producer Neal Baer has a pretty unique spin on the industry — especially since his entire career has been focused on broadcast television, which many consider inferior to the programming found on basic or premium cable.

For one thing, compared to today's standards, they were able to get away with a lot. What's behind that change, and why does Baer think that "Under the Dome," the sci-fi thriller currently airing its third season on CBS, wouldn't really be any different if were on a cable network?

Film Rights to Michael Crichton’s Micro Acquired by DreamWorks Studios

26 June 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From The Andromeda Strain to Jurassic Park to Prey and beyond, the late Michael Crichton offered readers numerous gateways to intelligent escapism on the printed page. Published posthumously, 2011's Micro is no exception. DreamWorks Studios seems to agree, as the company has picked up the film rights to the thriller.

Press Release: "Los Angeles--(Business Wire)--DreamWorks Studios has acquired the film rights to the Michael Crichton novel, “Micro,” it was announced today by Michael Wright, CEO of DreamWorks Studios. Frank Marshall is on board to produce, with Sherri Crichton and Laurent Bouzereau set as executive producers for CrichtonSun LLC.

The high-concept thriller follows a group of graduate students lured to Hawaii to work for a mysterious biotech company—only to find themselves miniaturized and cast out into the rain forest, with nothing but their scientific expertise and wits to protect them.

"Micro" was unfinished when Michael Crichton passed »

How Pedro, 'Ellen,' 'Will & Grace' and other gay TV icons helped pave the way for gay marriage

26 June 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whether or not you agree with today's Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage(*), there can be no argument that this was a historic day in America. (*) And as a reminder, this blog is not the place to debate the merits of that ruling. In watching the news coverage of the decision, reading the official Court opinion and the four dissenting ones, it was hard not to think of the not insignificant role TV played in paving the way for this decision. This was a case that wound its way through the courts, just as the wave of state-level cases did over the last few years, and it involved lawyers and activists and politicians and judges. But it also involved changing attitudes across the country about gay people and same-sex relationships, and that's where pop culture in general and TV in particular come into play. TV shows come into our homes (and these days, »
