“After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel.

Star-Crossed’s Greg Finley cast as Girder in The Flash

20 August 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back at the start of this month it was revealed that the DC villain Tony Woodward – a.k.a. Girder – would be making an appearance in The CW’s Arrow spin-off The Flash, and now Zap2It is reporting that Greg Finley (Star-Crossed, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) has secured the role of the Rogue.

According to the site, the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion that sees Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) gaining his powers also results in Woodward finding himself “with the ability to transform his skin into living metal. In the guise of Girder, Tony then goes on a crime spree that only Barry Allen may be able to stop. The connection between the two men doesn’t stop there, however. Back when they were kids, Tony was the bully who used to torment Barry.”

The Flash premieres on the CW on Tuesday October 7th, with »

Columbia Pictures

Have you ever wondered how it was even remotely possible for Andy Dufresne to reattach his poster of Raquel Welch to the wall of his prison cell after escaping?

Grant Gustin suits up in new countdown image for The Flash

17 August 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re now 52 days away from the premiere of The Flash on the CW, a number that’s very near and dear to the folks over at DC Comics. In fact, they named their gigantic company-wide relaunch in 2011 “The New 52.” To celebrate the occasion, The CW released a new official image of series star Grant Gustin in costume as the titular scarlet speedster on Twitter…

This is a great shot of the costume (much better than the first, poorly Photoshopped images we got a few months back), that shows off a nice, clean look at Gustin as Barry Allen, as well as some of the detail of the Flash suit. As you can see, despite a few small touches and a leather material, the design itself is pretty close to the iconic comic book design.

What do you think of this shot of Gustin as the Flash? Are you a fan of the costume? »

Carla Gugino Will Go To The Brink For HBO

14 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO has delivered some terrific comedies over the years, from the quirky musical series Flight of the Conchords to biting political satire Veep, and with the cast that the premium cable network is pulling together for its upcoming comedy The Brink, there’s reason to believe HBO has another major hit on its hands.

Now, our anticipation has been raised with news that Watchmen actress Carla Gugino has joined the cast in a multi-episode arc. Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock) and Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is The New Black) all topline The Brink, which is described as “an epic dark comedy.”

As per Deadline: The Brink focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. »

Watch: Celebrate the Work of Master Cinematographer Roger Deakins in Gorgeous Supercut

13 August 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Video tributes, or “supercuts” as they’re sometimes called, are rather commonplace, and while most of them are pretty one-note, today a video surfaced online that’s too good not to share.  Titled “Shadows in the Valley”, this video is a celebration of the work of cinematographer Roger Deakins, piecing together just a few of the masterful shots that make up his illustrious career.  From The Assassination of Jesse James to Skyfall to Barton Fink to Fargo to The Shawshank Redemption to O Brother Where Art Thou to No Country for Old Men, Deakins’ filmography is filled with gorgeous film after gorgeous film.  He’s a true genius at manipulating and capturing light, and he’s one of the most gifted people working today.  We have only one Deakins-led film to look forward to this year, the war drama Unbroken, but this video is a wonderful reminder of the variety of work Deakins has elicited, »

After Lauren Bacall's Passing, Every Hollywood Legend Name-Checked in 'Vogue' Is Dead

13 August 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Upon its release in 1990, Madonna's "Vogue" was an appreciation of a long-gone age of Hollywood glamour. Now that age is truly lost: as xoJane's Marci Robin pointed out on Twitter, the passing of Lauren Bacall means every star name-checked in the song has died. Bacall was the last surviving member of the 16 famous names in the song; nine of these stars were still alive when the song hit airwaves on March 20, 1990. ("Vogue" itself is 24 years old.)

10 Embarrassing Thoughts We All Had Watching Famous Movies

12 August 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

It’s no secret that movies can feel your head with all types of thoughts and emotions. Maybe you watch a movie like Rocky, A Beautiful Mind or The Shawshank Redemption and become instantly inspired. Perhaps you become super-sensitive and emotional when watching your favorite movie. Films like Toy Story 3, The Green Mile and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial will have you grabbing the tissues quick.

However, sometimes a film can fill your head with a thought you’d probably be too embarrassed to share with anybody you know personally. Given that embarrassment happens in relation to other people, it is a public emotion that makes you feel quite awkward. In other words, you’ve probably kept these thoughts to yourself. Today we are going to be presenting you with ten films that have filled your head with such embarrassing thoughts. One minute you’re in the movie theater »

Clancy Brown to play The General in TV’s The Flash

10 August 2014 10:41 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Starship Troopers' Clancy Brown has landed a villainous role in The Flash

As CW’s Arrow spin-off The Flash draws closer, more and more of the pieces are clicking into place.

We already know several of the villains, and received a new teaser trailer late last week. Now, we’ve heard of another actor set to be joining the show.

Clancy Brown, who played Captain Hadley in The Shawshank Redemption and Sargent Zim in Starship Troopers, has joined the show as General Wade Eiling, known better as The General. Is there an army title he hasn't held on screen?

Brown is no stranger to comic book roles, having played Red-Hulk, Lex Luthor, Odin and Taskmaster in a long string of voice-acting roles.

In The Flash, his character will be a black ops expert attempting to capture Kelly Frye’s Plastique in an attempt to weaponize her.

25 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About The Walking Dead

6 August 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

Since it was first published by Image Comics back in 2003, The Walking Dead has become a pop culture phenomenon, spawning a range of successful novels, video games and even action figures. However, all of that pales in comparison to the success of the TV adaptation, which has become the most popular show in the Us among the highly coveted 18-49 demographic. The premiere of season four was watched by 16.1 million viewers, making it the most popular opening episode the show has received yet.

Who would have thought a black and white comic book about zombies would have become so popular?

A new trailer for season five was recently unveiled at Comic Con and the response was overwhelmingly positive. With rumors circulating that more major cast members will be shot/eaten/disemboweled in the new series, anticipation is at an all-time high for the programs return on October 12th.

Video of the Day: Roger Deakins and Coen Brothers supercut

5 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride, cinematographer Roger Deakins is one of the greatest working DPs today, having earned 11 Oscar nominations and never won. He’s like the Susan Lucci of the technical categories.

But he got that way because for years he’s been consistently collaborating with the Coen Brothers on some of their most iconic films, everything from Fargo to O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn’t There, True Grit, The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink and No Country for Old Men. The man is a master, most recently making sinister, wintery chills in last year’s Prisoners.

Thanks to Blag Films, you can now see a short supercut of some of Deakins’ finest shots among his collaboration with the Coens (with the unfortunate exception of The Ladykillers and The Hudsucker Proxy). While only limiting it to Coens films eliminates the chance to see some »
