Spanning the years 1865 to 1890, the Robert Redford-produced limited series has been revisiting how — in the aftermath of the Civil War — the United States transformed into the “land of opportunity,” while sharing the personal, little-known stories of Western legends. In the sixth of eight episodes, Billy the Kid seeks revenge for the death of his friend and Jesse James reemerges from years in hiding, »
Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note is that AMPAS seemed to actively seek out women, minorities, and younger artists, hoping to make the demographics of the Academy slightly less centered on older white males. It won’t suddenly change the makeup of the Oscar nominations or upend how the Academy Awards go down next year, but it’s a slow step in the right direction, and that’s worth applauding for sure. As you can see below, in addition to basically all of last year’s Oscar winners, the new members are a diverse slate. Among the names you’ll see in the acting branch now are John Boyega, »

The multi-million dollar success of any movie will inevitably leave Hollywood executives clamouring for a sequel. And while there are plenty of movies whose stories are open-ended enough to warrant a return to the creative well, there are many times when coming up with a follow-up idea requires all sorts of imaginative leaps. Just look at something like Alien: Resurrection, which had to come up an elaborate reason why Ripley had (spoiler alert) managed to survive a swan-dive into a lead foundry in Alien 3.
Which brings us to this list, which is devoted to a few of the weirder sequel ideas that never made it to the big screen. An E.T. sequel in which little Elliott gets tortured by aliens? Forrest Gump dancing with Princess Diana? »
We know how much you love watching the American West come alive on AMC's Hell on Wheels.
For five seasons you have watched the struggle to build railroad that will make travel between the east and west a reality and not necessarily a death sentence due to the hardships of traveling by horseback and on foot.

AMC is giving fans of Westerns a treat this summer, with the final batch of “Hell on Wheels” episodes to be joined on Saturdays by the series premiere of the limited event series “The American West.”
The network announced Wednesday that “Hell on Wheels” will ride off into the sunset after its final seven episodes, which kick off Saturday, June 11 at 9. It’s the end of the line for Cullen Bohannon (Anson Mount) and his work on America’s first transcontinental railroad, and the final push to finish brings with it a reckoning for Bohannon and the men standing in his path: the bloodthirsty Swede (Christopher Heyerdahl), the mercenary Chang (Byron Mann) and the rapacious Thomas Durant (Colm Meaney).
