Nicolas Cage Revenge Film Rage Heading To DVD/Bluray This August!

19 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Nicolas Cage has done a great job choosing roles lately, with great turns in films like David Gordon Green’s Joe and the Paco Cabezas revenge film, Rage (formerly titled Tokarev). The latter, an exceptionally written and directed take on how one’s past can and most likely Will catch up with them is set to hit DVD/Bluray this August 12th, via Image Entertainment. Having seen the film earlier this year, on its VOD run (here), we can definitely vouch for this one, as it’s a pretty intense and emotional, tough as nails thriller. If Cage keeps putting out films like these, then the internet meme persona he’s unfortunately acquired in recent years can finally fade away, making people realize that he’s an exceptional actor (you’re lying if you say that you’re not a fan of Raising Arizona, and his Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas »

Fargo renewed for second season on FX

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Us TV network FX announced that to the Television Critics Association that hit miniseries Fargo, written by Noah Hawley, has been renewed for a second season.

Based on the critically-acclaimed classic film by Joel & Ethan Coen, Fargo has been given a new season on the back of a impressive 18 Emmy nominations in the recent announcements. Set to air in 2015, the 10-episode second season  is set to take the True Detective route, and tell a new story as well as having an array of new characters and actors in the roles.

In a press statement,  John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks & FX Productions said “We could not be more proud of Fargo… Noah’s audacious, bordering on hubristic riff on my favorite Coen brothers film earned 18 Emmy nominations – the most for a single program in our history. Fargo was nothing short of breathtaking and we look forward to the next installment. »

'Fargo' Season 2 Renewal Press Tour Live-Blog

21 July 2014 4:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This was a "Tbd" panel on FX's TCA schedule and, given the opinions, my guesses were down to either a "Partners" panel with Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence or a "Fargo" renewal panel. Since "Partners" premieres early next month and Grammer and possibly Lawrence (I didn't see him, so I don't know) were at last night's Fox/FX party, that wouldn't have seemed to require "Tbd" mystery.  And, indeed, FX began the morning by announcing a "Fargo" renewal and John Landgraf demurred on several questions about Season 2 specifics, saying that Noah Hawley and Warren Littlefield would have more details later. Don't expect That many details, but follow along... 4:45 p.m. This is our panel of the day. "Sons of Anarchy" had a fine panel previously that Geoff Berkshire will be writing up for us and, in fact, he's probably doing that as I type. 4:50 p.m. The second »

‘Fargo’ Gets Second Season on FX

21 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Has FX given a second season order to Noah Hawley’s “Fargo” miniseries? You betcha.

The network announced Monday at Television Critics Assn. that it has renewed the adaption of Joel and Ethan Coen’s popular film, which recently racked up an astounding 18 Emmy nominations. Similar to HBO’s “True Detective,” this new story will feature different characters (and actors), a fresh time period and a different “true crime” story that will unfold over the course of 10 episodes. It will air in fall 2015 at the earliest.

FX Miniseries 'Fargo' Gets Second Season

20 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Fargo, the TV miniseries adaptation of the 1996 feature film that made its debut on FX this year, will get a sophomore season.

'Fargo' Gets Second Season

It was announced at the Television Critics Association Monday that Noah Hawley’s Fargo miniseries would have a second season, reported Deadline. Based off of Joel and Ethan Coen’s movie, which won a best writing Oscar, the TV show’s first season closely followed the plot that featured a pregnant police chief investigating a hapless man who works with career criminals to hide his own bungled crimes.

For Fargo’s second season, Hawley will be taking the story in a completely new direction. There will be an entirely new cast of characters to play out the new “true crime” story in a new time period, according to FX.

“We could not be more proud of Fargo,” said FX Networks CEO John Landgraf. »

‘Fargo’: The Pivotal Decision That Made the FX Miniseries Shine

19 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There would be no middle ground when it came to “Fargo.” The bold decision by FX and MGM Television to mount a miniseries inspired by the “Minnesota nice” world crafted in the Coen brothers’ 1996 feature would either be a creative home run or the equivalent of “television karaoke,” in the words of MGM TV exec Steve Stark.

Writer Noah Hawley and producer Warren Littlefield didn’t need 18 Emmy nominations to know how well the effort turned out. But the recognition for all aspects of the production — from stars Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman and Allison Tolman to the sound mixing — confirms how deftly they threaded the needlepoint.

“We knew if we were ever going to make this, it had to hold its own against the movie,” said Eric Schrier, FX’s prexy of original programming and FX Prods. “It took a lot of courage to do it.”

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Derek’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.

The Zero Theorem

Directed by Terry Gilliam

USA/UK/Romania/France, 2013

Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »

Press Tour: Emmy chief will look at category problem, do nothing

13 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's press tour panel for the 2014 Emmy telecast was a chance for Seth Meyers and his "Late Night" producer Mike Shoemaker to talk about their approach to Seth hosting the show. Mainly, though, it was an opportunity for TV critics to complain to Television Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum about the broken Emmy category system — and for Rosenblum to smile, talk about his desire to examine the problem, and then make clear that he has no real plans to do anything to fix it. In fact, Rosenblum mainly seemed to think that the category issue — where dramatic shows are submitted as comedies, where miniseries are submitted as ongoing series (and, in the case of shows like "Tremé" and "Luther," vice versa), where series regulars are submitted as guest stars — was a good thing, because it suggested a healthy state of the industry. "There's far more terrific programming today," he noted. "The »

Emmy bait: Watch nominees in 25 of the year's best TV scenes

11 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

While much of the talk surrounding the announcement of the 2014 Emmy nominations focused on bigger-picture issues (snubs both critical and fan-enraging, the historical impact of a Simpsons omission, and so on), the year leading up to Thursday’s roll call was actually made up of many smaller flashes of brilliance on the small screen.

EW launched its 50 Best TV Scenes of the Past Year three weeks ago in an effort to highlight some of those moments—the most powerful, funny, touching, lusty, or sometimes just plain awkward moments over the 2013–14 season. It’s no surprise, then, that many of the »

Five Easy Ways to Fix the Emmys

10 July 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Emmy nominations were announced this morning and as usual, there were a number of snubs and surprises, which the Internet collectively whined about this morning. Rather than continue to mourn the lack of a nomination for Tatiana Maslany (which I admittedly complained about as well), actual solutions need to be pitched. Sadly, “chain Emmy voters to a chair and make them actually watch Orphan Black” seems somewhat implausible and definitely criminal, so here are five reasonable and seemingly easy solutions the Emmys should consider next year.

 

1. A Dramedy Category

One of the most-nominated newcomers announced on Emmy morning was Orange is the New Black, which with 12 total nods amassed more than any other comedy, including Modern Family, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. Yet most fans of the show would hesitate to classify it as a comedy. Compared to most of the other shows in the category, it certainly does not fit the pattern. »

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

10 July 2014 4:18 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Melissa Maerz: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices »

‘The Good Wife’ Leads List of Emmy Snubs and Surprises

10 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How could “The Good Wife” not make the cut this year? That was the question top of mind for many bizzers Thursday morning as they digested the news of the 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.

No doubt the drama series competition was fierce this year but the universal acclaim for “Good Wife’s” fifth season made it seem a slam-dunk for a return to the top race. The fact that “Downton Abbey” made the cut in a year when buzz on the PBS period sudser was definitely down a few notches only magnified the surprise for “Good Wife” fans.

66th Annual Emmy Nominations Announced

10 July 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards were released this morning, and I’m surprisingly satisfied with the results. Though there were an overabundance of nominations for the so-so Netflix series House of Cards and not nearly enough (read: any) for BBC America’s criminally-underrated Orphan Black, including for lead actress Tatiana Maslany, the categories shook out in a mostly predictable, if fair way.

Of course, heavyweights Breaking Bad and True Detective will be duking it out in the Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series categories (the latter of which saw both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson swipe nominations). Other shows which scored big include American Horror Story: Coven, dominating the Miniseries categories, Game of Thrones, which has the most nominations at 19, and Fargo, trailing just behind with 18.

I’m particularly pleased to see Idris Elba squeak into Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie »

Emmys 2014: Too many great shows, not enough spots, and some dumb choices

10 July 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It should be easy to feel sympathy for Emmy voters in 2014. There is more good television now than ever before, available in more places (including non-traditional streaming video outfits like Netflix and Amazon) than ever before. There is abundant category confusion, where a show like "Shameless" can jump from drama to comedy after presenting its bleakest season ever, where "True Detective" can be considered as a drama series while "American Horror Story" is a miniseries even though the two shows have the same basic structure, where the fourth season of "Tremé" has to be considered a miniseries because it didn't produce enough episodes to qualify elsewhere, where voters are asked to consider what Jim Parsons does on "Big Bang Theory" in the same context of what Louis C.K. does as an actor on "Louie." It is an impossible job, really. Even TV critics whose sole job is to watch this »
