A leaked casting breakdown has revealed apparent details about the new supporting characters in Marvel's upcoming"Agent Carter" series on ABC.
Film Divider posted the description and claims the key new roles include:
Deputy Director Roger Hooley: A hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.
Agent Jack Thompson: 30-something. Handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.
Edward Hutchins: A highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. »

Ahead of the Marvel Television Presents panel at the San Diego Comic-Con next weekend, SuperHeroHype caught up with Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, showrunners of the upcoming Agent Carter TV show, and managed to get a few words about ABC’s latest venture into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“The nice thing about Agent Carter being set in the ‘40s is it predates a lot of the Marvel universe. As you know, the guys who wrote Captain America 1, 2 and are now writing 3, wrote the pilot. So they know that universe very well. So I don’t feel like we’re hamstrung by anything. I think there’s a lot of room to play and a lot of room to be creative with the story,” said Fazekas, with Butters adding that: “It allows us, the movies were such a wonderful set up for the series. There is definitely something to draw on »

There's no doubt the collaboration of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger's on The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are the duo's most popular films, but when it comes to True Lies it's the one film from Cameron where he really let loose with the humor and yet still maintained the level of action we've come to expect from him. The film is absurd in most every way and in the midst of telling a story about Harry Tasker (Schwarzenegger), a spy attempting to track down nuclear weapons sold to a terrorist organization, Cameron decides to deviate from that plot for a solid hour as the film's lead character suspects his wife, Helen (Jamie Lee Curtis), of infidelity. With the help of his partner (Tom Arnold) and all the government resources at his disposal, he spies on his unsuspecting wife in a movie that seems to have been pitched »

Well, last week's "What I Watched" column suffered a setback when the site was getting hammered with traffic from people reading my article about getting rid of MPAA ratings, I don't think we'll have a similar issue this weekend so hopefully the conversation will return to its typical, lively nature. As for me, a bit of a slower week with me watching Dazed and Confused for my latest Best Movies article, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes my review here and last night I watched True Lies as well as the first 30 minutes or so of The Raid 2, which I'll be reviewing later this week, but I will already say is a vast improvement over the first film. Other than that, I didn't watch much. I did go to the horse races on Friday night and the Mariners game the night before that as it has been nice »

So the big question everyone has been wondering since the announcement of the next Halloween film was whether or not it would continue on in the universe set up by Rob Zombie. Recently Collider caught up with Malek Akkad at the Saturn Awards, who shed some light on the subject.
“I can’t talk about it too much right now," says Akkad. "It will definitely keep elements and bring in new elements. But I really want to bring it back to kind of like, the classic – because the last one got a little dark – I want to bring it back to the classic Friday night horror film that people will really like.”
When asked about the ill-fated Halloween 3D, which was announced a couple of years back...

Tom Jolliffe delves into The Dusty VHS Corner for the second part of his Bloodfist marathon (read part 1 here)…
In many a film franchise there comes a point where the steam train is running out of steam. Generally the closer you get to hitting double figures, the closer you get to creative oblivion. Some film series might manage to re-ignite and hit new highs, such as the fifth and sixth Fast & Furious films, which were the best of the whole bunch upon finally realising that it didn’t pay to take them too seriously.
Still, the general rule of thumb is that there’s normally a gradual decline, be it Nightmares on Elm Street, Treks in the stars, or the jump the shark brilliance of putting Jason Vorhees in space.
The Bloodfist saga was no different. A first three with not particularly much to pick between them. Then the fourth »

You’ve heard of the ‘McConaissance’. Well now another movie star considered past his best makes a high profile return to the big screen, as Kevin Costner toplines kinetic thriller 3 Days To Kill.
Though associated with a sequence of megabuck flops, Costner has been one of Hollywood’s true risk takers. It paid off in Oscars for Dances With Wolves (1990), where he did everything except sing the theme tune. Roles in hits such as The Bodyguard (1992) followed. But after Clint Eastwood’s A Perfect World (1993) came Waterworld. Throwing money at a sea-based knock-off of Mad Max was never going to set the box office alight, more give it a drenching. The Postman (1997) actually had Costner singing the theme tune and that failure appeared to round off his career as a big leading man. Yet the movies never forgot about Kev and in recent years he’s been rediscovered, with prestigious »

We have been experiencing some small technical problems with the chatroom. You can still access it easily by clicking the picture below and typing in the comment bar this command. /join #moviefancentral With no big release coming out this week, I thought it would be a great time to revisit one of my all time favorite action movies. It also happens to be celebrating it's twentieth anniversary, so that's all the better! I'm talking about the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, True Lies! »

James Cameron has fled the human world to spend a decade with his impossibly perfect space kittens. Arnold Schwarzenegger pretends he’s still thirty years old and in Mr. Universe shape, and that “pushing seventy” is nothing more than the body count of his latest film. Jamie Lee Curtis fell off the face of the Earth and reappears only to describe the pleasing effects of yogurt on her aching bowels. But twenty years ago today, these three visionaries came together for something truly special. That something was True Lies. Cameron’s 1994 Schwarzenegger action flick/rom-com/political thriller might not be as fondly remembered as The Terminator, nor as gleefully forgotten as Jingle All the Way, but it’s an important part of the Arnold Schwarzenegger canon. And it’s got at least one moment that will stand the test of time — the film’s thrilling conclusion, in which Schwarzenegger’s Harry Tasker keeps his daughter from falling »

From the Press Release
Last year the horror classic Halloween celebrated 35 years of terror for those willing to partake in its vision of unrelenting horror. But that was only the beginning of the celebration.
What producers Moustapha Akkad, Debra Hill, and Irwin Yablans; writer/director John Carpenter; and stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence started in 1978 has transformed into one of the most durable, iconic – and copiously studied -- horror film franchises ever created. Before Jason, before Freddy, and before Jigsaw, there was… Michael. Over the years audiences have lived and relived the terrors of Michael Myers through ten feature films as well as various re-edits and alternate versions; yet, to date, the »

There is something about getting a kick out of the sleazy celluloid cretins that feels rather intriguing. Whether these movie weasels are unctuous lawyers, abusive spouses or borderline bullies the concept of being a big screen weasel brings to mind some of the most colorful cast of conniving cohorts of misbehaving ever assembled. Okay…maybe that is a stretch as there are countless of other worthy weasels deserving of making a top ten list–probably even better known or notorious than the selection being presented currently.
Nevertheless, let’s check out the weasel-like wonders that movie audiences have learned to love or despise depending on the frame of mind in celebrating these shifty oddballs.
Note: The selections of The Art of Being Shady and Shifty: The Top 10 Movie Weasels featured below are presented in no particular preference or order:

Let's rewind 20 years, to the summer of 1994. O.J. Simpson has been arrested for murder, the World Cup is in America and being ignored, and the biggest hits at the multiplex are Forrest Gump, The Lion King, True Lies, and Speed. Notice anything odd about those movies? There's not a sequel or superhero among them. In fact, in '94, only two sequels were even released. This summer, we have 14.
"The idea before was that tentpoles were supposed to be four poles that held up a slate, and the slate was extremely diverse," says Anne Thompson, Hollywood analyst and author of The $11 Billion Year, a detailed month-by-month breakdown of the modern movie machine in 2012, the record-setting year of the title. "If you went back 20 years ago, you'd see a »
Ok, so Halloween fans, get ready to change your pants. While a complete boxset of the franchise seemed virtually impossible, due to a handful of issues including distribution rights, and the longtime fan-bootlegged “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers seemed like it would never be released, the time is finally coming. The always on top of their game Scream Factory, is teaming up 50/50 with Anchor Bay Entertainment to release Halloween: The Complete Collection September 23rd, in two very awesome editions.
Personally, it’s not everyday that something as huge for a franchise happens, so this is definitely one to look out for. The rumor of the boxset sparked a lot of fans talking, and now that it’s officially been confirmed, what do you guys/gals think? Will you be getting this one? For the official press release, keep reading!!
