I am a huge wimp when it comes to scary or gruesome films and TV shows. In particular, I hate anything involving blades on flesh (stabbings in particular). Obviously it's easy enough to avoid straight-up horror films, but the extent of my fear (which could well be pungophobia) means a lot of other random stuff is off limits, too. For example, while everyone else was raving about 13 Reasons Why earlier this year, I was giving it a very wide berth because I knew I'd have a panic attack if I was made to watch one pivotal scene. My entire life I avoided the seemingly innocuous City of Angels because a friend told me that, in one scene, Nicholas Cage accidentally chops his finger off. Truth is, much of my phobia (if that's what it is) is in my head. I can cope with some fantasy violence and the kind of »

CBS is developing a TV adaptation of “L.A. Confidential,” Variety has learned.
Based on James Ellroy’s classic novel of the same name, the series would follow the paths of three homicide detectives, a female reporter, and a Hollywood actress as they intersect while the detectives pursue a sadistic serial killer through the seedy underbelly of 1950’s Los Angeles.
New Regency, Lionsgate Television and CBS Television Studios will produce, with New Regency’s Arnon Milchan serving as executive producer. Jordan Harper is set to write and executive produce. Harper previously wrote for and produced the CBS drama “The Mentalist.” Most recently, he served as a writer and supervising producer on Fox’s “Gotham.” He is repped by UTA and The Shuman Company.
The novel was first published in 1990, the third entry in Ellroy’s “L.A. Quartet,” which explored life in the City of Angels in the 1940’s and ’50s. The »

“Fargo” is more than a place; it’s a Midwest state of mind. Mention as much to Carrie Coon, a Midwesterner from the eastern end of the region (Ohio) now living in its heart (Illinois), and she’ll rattle off an impressive list of accurate ideological descriptors.
“The ethos of that place,” she said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “That particular brand of stoicism and emotional restraint; the belief that bad things won’t happen to good people and that you have some control; this idea that we can make meanings in our lives, even though the reality is that we have very little control over anything.”

All of these things are built into “Fargo,” but there’s one other characteristic that stands out to Coon above all the rest.
“There’s a kind of Protestant work ethic,” Coon said. “We »

Interestingly, Fox licensed DC Comics’ interpretation of Lucifer, made remarkable first in the Sandman series and then in his own six year eponymous ongoing series. The First of the Fallen, he has abandoned his role as ruler of Hell and has come to Earth to run a piano bar, which is where the ongoing series opened. The series explored the themes of free will and individual willpower while challenging the “tyranny of predestination”. Under writer Mike Carey, it was a moody and fascinating study of humanity.
The network series, which debuted as a midseason replacement in spring 2016, ignored all of the trappings and set him up as a police consultant who saw a shrink, and was annoyed by his brother. Somehow, it clicked with audiences and came back for a full eighteen episode run. Now, Warner Home Entertainment has released Lucifer: The Complete Second Season in separate Blu-ray and DVD packages. »

Sports fans in Los Angeles have a reputation for being fickle, apathetic creatures who leave games early to avoid traffic and ditch teams when they stop winning.

The team has partnered with Saatchi & Saatchi Los Angeles to launch its “Fight for L.A.” campaign to prove that they are going to live up to the lofty expectations of the residents of the city they originally called home. »

Humans, orcs, elves, fairies, and other mystical creatures all inhabit the same alternate universe in this wondrous full trailer for Bright, Netflix and David Ayer’s fantasy epic that made a big splash at San Diego Comic-Con.
Drawing from his experience on End of Watch, Ayer’s latest creative venture – one that purportedly came at the expense of his involvement in Universal’s Scarface – largely revolves around two mismatched Lapd cops: the orc Nick Jacoby (Joel Edgerton) and his very human partner-in-crime, Scott Ward (Will Smith). Working closely with the city’s remarkably diverse population, Smith and Edgerton’s leads attempt to peacefully coexist, but when a deadly weapon emerges to the fore, Jacoby and Ward must pull together to stop the City of Angels from descending into chaos.
What is it, exactly? Well, it’s an ancient wand capable of granting wishes at a moment’s notice, so you »

Put David Ayer squarely in the pro-Netflix camp.

Smith also praised Netflix for rolling the dice on “Bright,” a special effects-heavy picture that reportedly cost $90 million to produce. “I’m sure this will end soon, but they just give you the money and say, ‘Go make a movie,'” said Smith.
