‘Falling Skies’ Series Finale Yields More Fizzle Than Fireworks (Spoilers)

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Falling Skies” had been running on fumes for a while, frustratingly so in its final season, which should have been building up to a big cosmic comeuppance for the Espheni, the alien invaders who had blown much of humanity to smithereens. Instead, the final episode, after a protracted and sometimes-meandering buildup, had a slightly anticlimactic quality, reinforcing, more than anything, that it was overdue for Chicken Little’s warning to finally come true.

For a time representing one of Steven Spielberg’s more successful recent endeavors as a TV producer, this TNT drama began with some promise, increased its ambition in season two and then began to hit rough patches, such as that whole hybrid-alien-baby-who-ages-ridiculously-fast storyline. The final season, in similar fashion, spent too much time dealing with the show’s various soap opera elements, while taking detours that pitted the humans against each other — most notably Everyman Tom Mason »

Would they dare to behave this way with Shah Rukh Khan - Raveena Tandon

25 August 2015 3:38 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Raveena Tandon is home. Wiser, if not more cynical after the way she was treated at the Independence Day celebrations in Los Angeles last week.

While she remains largely tight-lipped about the details of the unsavoury incident which has shaken the Indian community in the Us and Bollywood's female actors, there is visual evidence on YouTube and there are eyewitnesses from La who claim to have seen one of the organizers shouting and heckling Raveena Tandon, apparently because she wouldn't allow the organizer's kids to travel with her on the limousine that took her to the venue of the event.

Says a source from La, "Raveena was clearly unwell. She was coughing throughout. She refused to let the organizer's kids travel with her because of her condition. She wanted to sleep while travelling. But the organizer took great offence. After the event he screamed at Raveena and shockingly, took her »

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...


One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Special Report: A.R. Rahman Greatest Hits Concert at The O2!

18 August 2015 5:25 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

On August 15th, Mr. A.R. Rahman along with a host of special musical guests and singers returned to The O2 in London after five years in a very special show to perform his greatest hits. Check out our special report.

The Warm Up

A. R. Rahman. Live in concert. To say my expectations were high before the show would be a little bit of an understatement. I had heard rumours that hearing Rahman live should be on every music lovers bucket list, and it had been on mine for a while.

Having missed his performance at various arenas and having this opportunity land was a dream come true. A one night only concert and I wasn’t about to give it up….

I packed myself off to enjoy my first night out in 8 months, and what better way to spent it than in the company of a music maestro. Mr. »

Drunk man spoils Raveena Tandons Independence Day event in Los Angeles

17 August 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Like every year, this year too, Independence Day celebration will be a memorable affair for every Indian, except for Raveena Tandon, who was in La to celebrate India's Independence Day. The reason? A certain Neeraj Agnihotri, who was apparently drunk came up on stage and started misbehaving with Raveena and also started passing nasty comments, during the celebration in La. The reason stated for his unruly behavior was that he was upset because his kids didn't get to travel in Raveena Tandon's car with her to the event, since it was against the rules of the security and the protocol. Shockingly, this man was one of the organisers of the La event. Tweeting about the incident, Raveena Tandon stated, "In La after two glorious days, of spending the Independence Day celebrations- sadly a bad ending. All was going well. Till a drunk got on stage. Some chap called Neeraj agnihotri started misbehaving, »

Korea Box Office: Local Blockbusters Triumph on Holiday Weekend

16 August 2015 8:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Representing a week-on-week rise of 18%, Ryoo Seung-wan’s “Veteran” earned $15.4 million from 2.25 million admissions between Friday and Sunday and held on to top spot over the busy Independence Day weekend.

The Cj Entertainment release has rapidly scored $44.4 million from 6.64 million admissions after 12 days on release.

Fittingly, Showbox’s period action drama “Assassination” crossed the 10 million admissions mark on Independence Day (Aug 15). It grossed $6.7 million from 989,600 admissions between Friday and Sunday, extending its total to $70.5 million from 10.7 million admissions. “Assassination” is now the top movie of the year, ahead of “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” held third place, adding $3.2 million over the three-day weekend for $37.9 million. Upi’s “Minions” has made $14 million after three weekends on release.

Lotte’s long-anticipated “Memories of the Sword” disappointed. The big budget martial art drama starring Cannes-winning actress Jeon Do-yeon, top actor Lee Byung-hun, and rising star Kim Go-Eun only made $2.23 million over its opening four days. »

Pahlaj Nihalani releases his Independence Day song

15 August 2015 12:53 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Chairperson of the censor board Pahlaj Nihalani is all set to release his song dedicated to the prime minister for Independence Day tomorrow.

The song entitled 'Mera Desh Hai Mahaan Mera Desh Hai Jawaan' is Nihalani's homage to a nation that has grown up on songs about leaders who have changed the way we look at our country.

Says Nihalani, "We don't have good patriotic songs. Because the young don't have that many political leaders to look up to. There was a time when Manoj Kumar Saab's films had great patriotic songs like 'Mere Desh Ki Dharti' and 'Hai Preet Jahaan Ki Reet Sadaa'. After the 1970s, the nation lost hope in its leaders. There are no patriotic songs anymore because the sense of patriotism is gone from our youngsters' lives."

Nihalani recalls a rare desh-bhakti song in a film post the 1970s. "It was beautiful patriotic song 'Aankhen Jiski »

Movie News: Is Will Smith Going to Star in 'Bad Boys 3'? 'Straight Outta Compton' Director May Go to Space

14 August 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Bad Boys 3: As we recently learned, two new Bad Boys sequels are heading to theaters in 2017 and 2019. But will either Will Smith or Martin Lawrence return as the titular rule-breaking police detectives? It's not clear. Reportedly, Smith will be involved in some capacity, but that could be limited to serving as a producer and not as a star; his deal is not finalized. Smith declined to star in the upcoming Independence Day sequel, so there's certainly no guarantee that he'll show up on screen in more Bad Boys sequels. [The Hollywood Reporter]   Are We There Yet?

Rohit Shetty caught in a controversy over bribing Censors for Singham Returns

14 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Filmmaker Rohit Shetty, who is known for his blockbuster 100 crore films, has now been caught in a Cbi case for bribery. Reportedly, the director-producer is under Cbi scrutiny for allegedly bribing the Censor Board to pass his film Singham Returns.

Apparently, Singham Returns which released on the Independence Day last year, had been given its certification a week prior to the release, that is, on August 8. It is being said that Rohit Shetty bribed Rakesh Kumar, the ex chief of the Cbfc for passing his film without any objection. However, this is not the first time the Censors have been accused of bribery. In fact, Rakesh Kumar had to withdraw from his post as the Chief owing to many accusations of bribery against him.

The Cbi sent a recommendation to their Delhi headquarters in January 2015 and the Mumbai unit is currently investigating the matter. »

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air reboot in the works, Will Smith producing

14 August 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Will Smith’s star-making sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is set for a reboot, with Big Willy himself in the producer role…

Utter the words ‘In West Philadelphia, born and raised’ to any number of people brought up in the 1990s, and you won’t be able to speak to them for the next minute or so.

That’ll be because they’re reciting The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’s introductory rap theme song from memory. Some of them will even know the oft-deleted verse, the one about Will getting on a plane and drinking orange juice.

If you, like me, are one of those people, then this news story might just be overly-polite rap music to your ears – Will Smith is returning to the world of The Fresh Prince, to act as a producer for a new series.

It’s unclear at the moment whether Big Willy would star, »

Will Smith Producing 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' TV Reboot

13 August 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Smith is heading back to Bel-Air, with TV Line reporting that the star is developing a TV reboot of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. There are no plans for the actor to star in the reboot, but his production company Overbrook Entertainment is in the very early stages of developing this project. The pitch is set to be finalized soon, with the production company taking it to various networks over the next few weeks.

The project reportedly puts a new spin on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, while maintaining the spirit of the original series. The show ran on NBC for six seasons, between 1990 and 1996, launching rapper Will Smith's acting career. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air centered on Will Smith's character Will Smith, whose "life got flip turned upside down" when his mother sends him from his Philadelphia home to live with his aunt and uncle in their posh Bel-Air home. »
