TF1 Studio Links Up With Paramount, Mars Distribution (Exclusive)

22 May 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

TF1 Studio, the vertically integrated film banner launched by France’s top commercial network, has signed distribution and marketing agreements with Paramount and Mars Distribution.

Under the agreements, Paramount and Mars will handle theatrical distribution of TF1 Studio movies, the company’s co-deputy CEO Tristan du Laz told Variety. Paramount will handle most English-language titles, such as Michael Apted’s “Unlocked” (pictured); Mars will roll out TF1 Studio’s French films and festival-friendly movies, such as Julien Leclercq’s upcoming biopic “Prost.”

TF1 Studio will cover P&A expenses while Mars and Paramount will handle theater booking and orchestrate the marketing strategy. “These partners are highly complementary, and we’ve been together for a while on an ad hoc basis,” said du Laz, who joined TF1 from Studiocanal and now works with fellow co-deputy CEO Nathalie Toulza-Madar.

TF1 Studio previously had a deal with Ugc that covered French distribution. Since »

Candice Patton Steals The Show Last Night On The Flash

17 May 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One of the most under-rated actors on this show has to be Candice Patton because her character hasn't had a major event on the show that has truly impacted her.  Last night was Patton’s best performance yet, as she made the last moments of Iris West life shine more than any other character.  From the beginning of the episode it seemed that Iris had already accepted her fate and knew that no matter what happened in the last 24 hours she was going to die.  From the last conversation with her father Joe, to leaving Barry a video of her wedding vows, this show finally had its tough gut check moment for Team Flash.  All thanks to the brilliant acting of Candice Patton.  The previous two seasons of this show only saw the major events impact Barry and not the entire team, so they haven't had an event where everyone lost someone significant to them. »

The Best Dual Roles on TV, Ranked

26 April 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s difficult enough for an actor to be tasked with transforming into a new person — in aspect, personality, movement and spirit — from role to role. But when double duty (or more) is required within the same project, that’s when the real challenge kicks in, because the viewer must be convinced that the same actor is distinctly different when they’re playing both parts in rapid succession, sometimes even side-by side or interacting with each other.

Dating back to shows like “The Patty Duke Show,” “Bewitched” and “I Dream of Jeannie,” the dual role usually allowed for storylines involving twins, cousins or other lookalikes. Even “Knight Rider” stuck a mustache and goatee on David Hasselhoff to give him an evil twin. Over time though, these performances became less campy and more convincing, going beyond the fake hair, goofy costuming or “evil” shortcut trappings. These days, dual roles can be »

X Marks The Spot For Jason Voorhees

12 April 2017 11:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

15 years ago, evil got an upgrade…In Space!

Eight years after Jason Voorhees went to the hell of middling box office returns, New Line Cinema (who snatched up the rights to the character after Paramount squandered the Friday the 13th property into a tired series of faceless slasher sequels) launched their psychotic goalie into that far, far away galaxy where franchises like Critters and Leprechaun had already gone to die — In Space!!! The last-second climax of Jason Goes To Hell promised an ultimate fighting showdown between New Line’s other favorite son, Freddy Krueger, but the studio had to put that dream on hold while Wes Craven completed his final statement with New Nightmare. Desperate to keep his franchise alive while the promise of Freddy Vs. Jason tried to free itself from the muck of development hell, original creator Sean S. Cunningham passed the producing credits down to his son Noel, and »

Katie Cassidy Returning to ‘Arrow’ for Good as Black Siren

27 March 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Katie Cassidy is returning to “Arrow” in a big way.

The “Arrow” alum will be back as a series regular in Season 6, playing Black Siren. She will first appear in the final two episodes of the CW show in the current fifth season.

An original cast member of “Arrow,” Cassidy portrayed Laurel Lance/Black Canary for the first four seasons, before being killed off in the midst of Season 4. After she was killed, Cassidy signed a deal with the CW to appear across the DC universe portfolio of shows in a guest capacity — then she reappeared as Black Siren, the villainous Earth 2 version of Black Canary, in “Arrow’s” midseason premiere of Season 5.

Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim commented on Cassidy’s return, saying in a statement: “One of the things that most excites us about ‘Arrow’ is that we go where the story takes us. Last year, the story took us to the tragic death »

Brie Larson on Not Clapping for Casey Affleck at the Oscars: The Moment ‘Spoke for Itself’

9 March 2017 4:54 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Any other year, Brie Larson not clapping for Casey Affleck as he accepted his Best Actor prize might have been the most notable moment of the Academy Awards. As we now live on Earth 2 and last month’s ceremony ended in perhaps the most shocking moment in Oscars history, however, it may have slipped past more viewers’ attention. During the premiere of “Kong: Skull Island” last night, the actress more or less confirmed the moment’s significance: “I think that whatever it was that I did onstage kind of spoke for itself,” she told Vanity Fair.

The Flash season 3 episode 13 review: Attack On Gorilla City

Jim Dandy Feb 23, 2017

The latest episode of The Flash season 3, Attack on Gorilla City, is a lot of fun if you don’t look too closely...

This review contains spoilers.

3.13 Attack On Gorilla City

Hey! I’m Jim, your very special guest. I’m your regularly scheduled Legends Of Tomorrow host, filling in for Mike on one of the most highly anticipated episodes of The Flash ever: the Flash team visits Earth 2’s Gorilla City and confronts Grodd, the evil telepathic gorilla from season 1. Just typing that sentence was a blast, so you’d think the episode would be amazing.

It...was fine.

It was slightly better than fine, to be honest. But it coasted by on a delightful first act and some joyful acting by the cast, »

The Flash: Attack On Gorilla City Review

22 February 2017 5:01 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Courtesy of CW

"Are you going to The Planet of The Apes?"

Grodd is Back!  After a week off The Flash returns with an episode that is more surreal than anything we have seen on The CW.  The two-part event brings back some old friends to The Flash universe with the return of Earth 2 Harrison Wells, Jessie Quick, and Grodd.  

The overall story line was so different from the normal formula that we have grown accustomed to on The Flash.  With the return of Jessie Quick at the end of the last episode we learned the Earth 2 Harrison Wells has been abducted by Gorilla Grodd.  Without hesitation Barry, Cisco, Caitlyn, and Julian (Indiana Jones Impostor) travel to Earth 2 to save Wells only to be abducted themselves. 

The concept of the episode was very simple with Grodd needing Barry to take down the current leader of the Gorilla's and his name is Solovar. »

Ricky Church reviews Super Sons #1…

When I grow up” part one! The sons of Batman and Superman have graduated to their own monthly comic—but if they want to survive, they’re going to have to share it! Writer Peter J. Tomasi (Batman & Robin, Superman) teams with rising-star artist Jorge Jimenez (Earth 2) to bring you the adventures of the World’s Smallest.

Rats of Nimh Gets Iron Man 2 VFX Specialist as Director

1 February 2017 4:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly two years after first being set up at MGM, the long-awaited adaptation Rats of Nimh finally has a director. James Madigan, a visual effects specialist who has worked on Iron Man 2, The Da Vinci Code and HBO's Rome, just to name a few, has come aboard to direct Rats of Nimh. This adaptation will mark the feature film directorial debut for James Madigan, after spending the past 16 years working in various areas of visual effects. He recently transitioned to second unit director, and worked on the giant shark thriller Meg.

When MGM first picked up the rights to this adaptation in March 2015, we reported that the movie will be an origin story about an "imperiled mouse protagonist" who befriends a group of lab rats as they become "hyper-intelligent." The story will follow these rats as they escape a secret laboratory and become great minds in their civilization, as »

TV: Arrow - The Return of Laurel Lance!...Kind of...

26 January 2017 1:05 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Courtesy of the CW/WB.

Arrow is back from its mid-season hiatus!  Will it be able to keep the steam that it had in the first half of the season?

The episode picks up immediately where the last episode ended with Laurel explaining that Sara brought her back to life on the WaveRider.  After filling Laurel in on what happened over the past 9 months, Oliver goes to visit Diggle.  Laurel’s return from the dead would have been extremely believable if they had not ruined the outcome of her true identity from the promos.  It seemed conceivable that she was back, and it wasn’t the first time that someone close to Oliver, or from the Lance family, was brought back from the dead.

Felicity and Curtis have their reservations about Laurel’s return, which leads to what we already know; it’s actually the Earth 2 Laurel Lance aka Black Siren. »

Next month, DC commences the second phase of its Rebirth initiative as it rolls out new titles such as Justice League of America, Batwoman and, last but not least, Super Sons, which is the focus of our current discussion. Uniting Damian Wayne and Jon Kent, the current versions of Robin and Superboy, respectively, we trust this book will offer much action and excitement, with a hearty helping of youthful exuberance.

Spinning out of concepts introduced by Peter J. Tomasi in the pages of Superman, Super Sons will feature artwork provided by the up and coming Jorge Jimenez. To this point, the interaction between Damian and Jon has been quite entertaining and although teaming up costumed youths is nothing new, it stands to reason that this series will be as different from Teen Titans as »

Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad #5 Review

18 January 2017 7:29 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The futures of several DC titles are dependent on the outcome of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad. While tremendously fun, the series has so far failed to produce the one book that turns the universe upside down. Until now. Forget everything before this, because Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #5 is the game changer for Rebirth.

With Max Lord controlling the Justice League – sans Batman – things actually don’t look too bad. All the weapons of mass destruction are disarmed, the borders and shores secured, the world’s leaders under Wonder Woman’s protection, and Lord assumes control of the United States from the White House. Wanting someone to appreciate his “saving of the world,” Lord instructs Superman to bring Amanda Waller to him. Lord boasts to her about how he’s in control of the diamond; however, Waller warns him of its sinister power. Proving her right, the darker entity »

The Dark Knight Says “I Love You” In Batman #15

13 January 2017 10:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether you’re digging Tom King’s current run on Batman or not, you have to admit that the current two-issue arc is something special. Despite their storied courtship that’s been going on since 1940, Batman and Catwoman don’t meet up as often as one would think, let alone get some alone time – at least “on camera.” Well, there was 2011’s Catwoman #1, which received some undeserved backlash, but that’s a conversation for another day.

In next week’s conclusion of “Rooftops,” expect to see Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle admit they love each other, which is a huge step for both. I would even go as far to say this is the closest thing Bruce has ever had to a stable relationship, but I wouldn’t count on the feline fatale moving into stately Wayne Manor anytime soon. Unless, of course, they end up conceiving themselves a Huntress »

Arrow: Greg Berlanti Teases More Appearances From Laurel Lance Across The CW

10 January 2017 4:31 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While fans were shocked to see the return of Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) in the winter finale of Arrow, the CW jumped the gun in revealing (through a promo) that this isn't the Laurel Lance that died last season. While it hasn't been confirmed 100%, it's a pretty safe bet that this Laurel is the evil Black Siren from Earth 2, who was originally introduced in The Flash last year. While her motivations remain unknown, Arrow producer Greg Berlanti has teased the character's involvement in more than just the events of Arrow's fifth season. “We made a deal at the end of [season 4] to bring her back for a bunch of episodes. Katie is a part of the fabric of the show. Because the show, like a comic book, can move in different ways, and characters go and come, everybody that’s ever been a part of the key and core »

Arrow Showrunner Teases A Dark Felicity, Focused Diggle And Prometheus Showdown In Midseason Premiere

7 January 2017 2:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Felicity moved on to a new boyfriend but he wound up murdered by the Green Arrow in the mideason finale.  However, Felciity won't blame Oliver and will instead focus on taking down Prometheus, resulting in a possible shift to the dark side.  As far as the Laurel Lance cliffhanger, the promo for the midseason premiere pretty much spoiled that it's actually Earth 2's Black Siren, not Laurel in Team Arrow's lair.  However, showrunner Wendy Mericle says the Siren's presence and her resemblance to the Laurel that Oliver used to love will have a major impact on Oliver and Felciity moving forward.  "[Seeing Laurel (?!)] is a very welcome surprise but there will be… whatever the reverse of a ‘silver lining’ is… when he finds out what’s really going on. It will have a lot of emotional resonance, particularly for him and Felicity.” Back in prison, Spartan aka Diggle will begin »
