The camera pans around an ornately decorated apartment somewhere in Manhattan. Wood panelling, light opera and the warmth and isolation which come with wealth permeates the scene. Thomas Eichorst (Richard Sammel) sits before a theatrical make-up mirror calmly preparing for the day ahead.
Despite the best efforts of Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and his team, they remain no closer to discovering the source of this virus. Ansel Barbour (Nikolai Witschl) is convalescing at home, Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy) hides away in his a converted theatre, while Captain Redfern (Jonathan Potts) remains under observation.
When the remaining quarantined cadavers get confiscated Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) starts grasping at straws. She remains in the background at the municipal courthouse as Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), stands before the judge to plead his case. Meanwhile Jim Kent (Sean Astin) waits in the offices of Eldritch »

The Killing was an American remake from AMC based on the nordic noir show popularised over here by showings on BBC 4. The Us version moved things to Seattle where it rained constantly and revolved around the murder of Rosie Larson. Unfairly compared to Twin Peaks when it debuted, it was nonetheless something of a hit on Channel 4 for at least two seasons. I lost track of it around the mid-point of season two, not because I didn’t like it, I enjoyed it lots despite its grimness but it became impossible to keep up with the weekly scheduled showings and 4Od was, and still is not very good. From what I hear season two wrapped up the murder of Larson and season three moved on to a new mystery which was just as gripping.
The reason I mention this anyway is that like Arrested Development, Netflix has picked up »

A Boeing 767 flying out of Berlin lands at JFK and goes dark. Its fuselage is cold. Every window blind is drawn except one and the passengers are silent. Someone calls in Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) from the Cdc (Centre for Disease Control) to investigate. Together with Jim Kent (Sean Astin) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) he begins ruling out viral possibilities before this new contagion reaches Manhattan.
Meanwhile Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), an old Armenian pawnbroker, watches from his Harlem bolthole as media interest turns to increasing concern. Something without conscience is intent on eradicating the population, which will require more than the efforts of one old man and a team of experts to quash. Elsewhere ailing billionaire Eldrich Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) awaits the arrival of a visitor. For both men know there will be no second chances.

“This is a chance to find an answer. To find one damn answer.”
On Monday’s episode of Under the Dome, Joe seemed just as desperate for answers as many of us have been this season.
And although the CBS drama still has quite a bit of explaining to do, a few of the show’s puzzle pieces are making like pink stars and falling into place.

Thanks to Marvel_Spider for the heads up Set Photo by Mediawill "Marvel’s Daredevil" follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Charlie Cox ("Boardwalk Empire") will play Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Vincent D’Onofrio ("Men In Black") will play Wilson Fisk aka The Kingpin, Elden Henson (“Mighty Ducks”) will play Foggy Nelson, Deborah Ann Woll ("True Blood") will play Karen Page and Rosario Dawson ("Sin City") will play a beautiful female character. »
What happened next spilled out across several social media accounts and involved comments from Ruffalo himself. Essentially "Men In Black" and "Now You See Me" screenwriter Ed Solomon approached Ruffalo about a month ago about the idea of a cinematic reboot of Peter Falk's iconic TV detective which would star the actor.
Nothing has progressed beyond that though, aside from the public at large finding out about it and so far the reaction has been almost universally positive.
The original American detective mystery series is often considered one of the greatest small screen works of the genre. Sixty-nine episodes were ultimately produced and followed the friendly, »

We’ve all had that moment watching a movie, tv show, playing a game, or reading a book when there is a cool fictional object we wish were real. To keep this list focused I’ve come up with a few rules.
Nothing unique or specific to only one person — Wonder Woman's Magic Lasso won't qualify.
No fully enclosed vehicles, so no Back to the Future DeLorean or Tardis.
No robots, artificial intelligences, or androids.
Nothing that is part of a building or vehicle, which disqualifies Star Trek’s transporters.
No suits, costumes, or mechs. Sorry Iron Man, you're out.
Can't already be real (obviously).
Rule #1 is a very limiting rule. My thinking was that if it was real but unique, why would you be able to own it? Now for the wishlist.
Why it's cool

No shirt, no shoes, no selfie? Hardly. Will Smith was spotted Thursday being trailed by a swarm of bikini-clad women and a topless twosome intent on taking a snap with the actor, but the Grammy-winning rapper turned Oscar-nominated thesp didn't seem to mind being surrounded by the selfie-seeking mob on the beaches of Ibiza. In fact, the Men in Black star (dressed in all-black) happily wrapped his arm around a shirtless fan as he was shown one of the captured pics. The 45-year-old star and fan favorite was not accompanied by his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith on his beach getaway, but not to worry, the two were recently seen vacationing together on the sands of Hawaii. Besides, the »
This weekend we might see Transformers: Age of Extinction make somewhere around $47 million or so, but that won't be enough to make it one of the highest grossing July 4 weekend totals. Using data from Box Office Mojo, directly below are the highest July 4 weekend box office results, both actual dollar figures and adjusted for inflation. Perhaps most interesting, to me, is the fact not a single release has ever topped $100 million for the July 4 weekend, though, I guess when you consider a lot of these are actually released a few days before it's not really a fair barometer. After all, while Transformers: Dark of the Moon may have made $97.8 million on July 4 weekend, by the end of said weekend its domestic total was already up to $162.6 million. I guess the biggest question is to wonder how many of these massive money makers are actually goodc See anything you truly lovec »

In 1996, Will Smith took on some realllly destructive aliens in "Independence Day" -- and what better day to check in with the cast than today!The movie -- which follows a group of survivors who take on some evil ETs after an alien invasion -- was the highest grossing flick in 1996, and earned over $50 million its opening weekend. Even today, the movie is still one of the highest grossing films of all time. Co-starring Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Harry Connick Jr., Randy Quaid and Harvey Fierstein, "Independence Day" boasts an eccentric cast -- and they've all been up to some really different things since the movie opened 18 years ago.Will continued to battle aliens in the "Men In Black" films, Randy had a string of arrests through 2009-2010 (see one his mug shots in the gallery!) and the First Daughter grew up to star on "Parenthood" and "Arrested Development. »

As much credit as we give to the 80s for canonizing overkill in action films, we don’t give enough recognition to the 90s for producing some of the most out-and-out insane premises to action films that you can’t make today. In the center of it all was Nicolas Cage. Cage has made a career out of not being pinned down, and his turn from Oscar Winning actor for Leaving Las Vegas to following it up with a string of action films certainly displays that. In 1996-1997 Cage made 3 films in a row as Hollywood’s 2nd most bankable action star (Will Smith being the only one to top him both years) of the time that looking back, really define a lot of the characteristics that made the 90s action film distinct from other decades. It was a wonderful time to be Nicolas Cage. How did someone like him »

We’re coming to the end of the line folks. Yes, this time around I’ll be tackling the last of the technical categories in this series. After this week, it’s all the remaining big eight categories from here on out. This one today is arguably one of the lesser tech categories, but still an interesting one. Which one is it? Well, it’s the Best Makeup & Hairstyling category. This isn’t a particularly prestigious category, but hey…it’s still one worth discussing a bit. You all mostly just want to see the lists that I do anyhow, so I have no problem obliging you good people there in that particular regard once again. All you have to do is just be a bit on the patient side over the next paragraph or so and you’ll get the goods front and center… This time around, I’m »

In 1999, Barry Sonnenfeld's Wild Wild West hit theaters. It had the twelfth largest opening that year and was banking on the rising star that was Will Smith after he made Bad Boys, Independence Day and Men in Black. The film was, in fact, the movie Smith made after turning down The Matrix... perhaps it was the $170 million budget versus the $63 million the Wachowskis were playing with, but whatever it was, it seemed Wild Wild West was discussed just as much as The Matrix fifteen years ago, though for entirely different reasons. With that $170 million, Wild Wild West went on to gross only $222 million worldwide, split almost evenly between domestic and foreign markets. Reviews were dreadful and all I can remember was that title song blasting on the radio every five minutes and I never ended up seeing the movie, which ended up becoming the 17th highest grossing movie of »

Veteran publicist Fritz Friedman is leaving Sony Pictures at the end of summer, the studio confirmed Monday, after more than 34 years of leading publicity efforts for home entertainment and, more recently, acquisitions.
Friedman will focus on other endeavors, including serving as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communications and Journalism, according to people familiar with the situation.

According to Sony Pictures company spokesman, “Fritz Friedman, who for more than 34 years has driven Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s publicity and corporate communications campaigns, has chosen to step down as Svp of Worldwide Publicity, effective August 31, 2014.
