William Hurt Joins Jesse Owens Biopic Race

10 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Focus Features have added veteran actor William Hurt to the cast of their Jesse Owens biopic, Race. The actor will take on the role of Jeremiah Mahoney, the president of the Amateur Athletic Union, who spearheaded efforts to boycott the 1936 Olympics.

The movie, penned by Frankie And Alice writers Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel, is based on the real story of American athlete, Jesse Owens. Now a legend, the movie will tell his backstory before he became a four-time Olympic gold medalist and track-event pioneer. On board to direct is noted TV director Stephen Hopkins (Californication, House Of Lies). The film, which has the distinct aroma of award-bait, has already accrued a solid cast, despite undergoing a shuffle in its line-up earlier this year.

Along with Hurt to flesh out the call sheet for the sports biopic are Jeremy Irons (Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Margin Call), Carice Van Houten »

Mindy Newell: I Owe It All To Television

15 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“When television is good, nothing – not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers – nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your own television set when your station goes on the air and stay there, for a day, without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland. You will see a procession of game shows, formula comedies about totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder, mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western bad men, western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence, and cartoons. And endlessly commercials – many screaming, cajoling, and offending. And most of all, boredom. True, you’ll see »

Classic Doctor Who Debuts Monday On Retro TV

3 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Starting Monday, August 4, digital television provider Retro TV will be presenting the surviving “classic” episodes of Doctor Who weekdays at 8Pm.  the series will start as it should with William Hartnell as The Doctor in An Unearthly Child, and will continue in order, right through to the Sylvester McCoy series.

When broadcast television switched over to digital, stations received a bonus two digital sub-channels thanks to the extra ability to compress data.  Most stations had no plan of their own to utilize these stations, which allowed for the rise of third party programming providers like Retro, Me-tv and many more.  Offering mostly reruns of classic television, these channels have greatly expanded the number of classic shows available.  While most classic TV station were only available through cable subscriptions, these new channels are available over the air, allowing everyone to enjoy them.

Retro TV scored a double-hit this summer for science-fiction fans. »

Doug Jones Talks Space Command, The Strain, Falling Skies, Crimson Peak and More!

28 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Without a doubt, Doug Jones is one of our favorite actors. The personable, prolific performer always has some interesting projects to talk about, and he recently sat down with Dread Central to discuss some current and future endeavors.

Jones began by describing an intriguing new movie series. Space Command: Redemption is the first installment in a proposed franchise.

"It's an original piece by writer/director Mark Zicree, who has such a pedigree in writing for film and television in the science fiction genre," Jones said, "a hugely decorated writer who has written for everything from "Star Trek: Incarnation" to "Babylon 5" and beyond. So there's elements of all that. It's got all the trappings of a science fiction show that takes place in space, but it also has a warm, heartfelt soul that's unlike anything I've read and I think that's what attracted me to it. And to be surrounded »

Can you think of a bad Gary Oldman movie? Okay, well Lost In Space wasn't all that great, but if you look at the vast majority of his career, Oldman has knocked his roles out of the park. Whether it be playing villains in movies like The Professional or The Fifth Element, iconic franchise characters like Jim Gordon in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy or Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films, Oldman is the man. Gary Oldman will next be seen in Matt Reeves' Dawn Of The Planet Of »

New Release Dates for ‘Paranormal Activity’ & ‘Bourne’ Pentaquels

18 June 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Both the Paranormal Activity series and the Bourne franchise will be unloading their fifth instalments in the near future, but first we have some release dates to shuffle around. First up is the confusingly titled Paranormal Activity 5, as it is actually the 7th film in the franchise when you consider Parnormal Activity 2 has an alternative Japanese version known as Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Night and earlier this year we saw the release of spin-off Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. Fans of the found-footage franchise may be disappointed to hear that the series will be taking a break until 2016. Paramount Pictures revealed the news at CineEurope where they also announced a 2016 release for Transformers 5, G.I. Joe 3, Star Trek 3, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2. Paramount Pictures will also be rebooting Beverly Hills Cop that year and giving us Timur Bekmambetov’s Ben Hur remake.

9 movies that prove why nostalgia isn't always a good thing

Remember that thing you loved from your childhood? It's coming back. We're not talking specifics here, we're talking everything.

New movies or TV shows revolving around everything from Scooby Doo to Ninja Turtles, Danger Mouse and Bananaman are on the horizon - you could accuse producers of running out of new ideas, but how long before they run out of old ideas?

Nostalgia can give you a warm and fuzzy feeling, but sometimes it isn't always a good thing. Digital Spy suggests 9 instances when looking back to the past resulted in a questionable present:

The Saint (1997)

A movie adaptation of popular TV series The Saint had been mooted for some time. It finally limped into cinemas in 1997 with Val Kilmer as Simon Templar - he was no Roger Moore, but let's face it, who is?

Fan-Made "Lost In Space" Animated Pilot Should Go To Series

17 June 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Dear 20th Century-Fox, After Star Trek, and literally from a completely different universe, Irwin Allen's Lost In Space was one of the great sci-fi shows of the 1960s.  They say "you can't go home again", and New Line's 1998 feature version proved that - but this morning I had a look at animator Scott O'Brien's test film - for a 2003 pitch - on Vimeo (embed below) and I implore you to consider bringing this show - using the actual soundtracks from the original series - to series. For Netflix? For Animation Domination?  This put a big smile on my face. What do you say?  (via Ben Price)

10 Best Us TV-To-Film Translations

6 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With 22 Jump Street about to hit our theatres, we thought it would be great to look back over a number of Us TV shows that successfully made the leap from the small to the big screen. Unlike video games there have been a number of great shows that became great movies but I certainly had to show some restraint here. I personally love Lost In Space, Miami Vice, and S.W.A.T. in their cinematic forms but had to concede that they aren’t always the most popular of film translations. For this list it may be a continuation of the TV series itself or a complete reboot, and make sure you visit us in a few weeks where we’ll be looking over the worst British/Irish jumps to “celebrate” the arrival of Mrs. Brown’S Boys D’Movie. »

Emmy Creative Arts: TV Composers Bid Farewell to Personal Themes

3 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Remember when you’d watch “Lost in Space” and, whenever the Robot was making trouble, you’d hear John Williams’ lumbering musical motif? Or when Napoleon Solo would encounter a femme fatale on “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and you’d inevitably hear the love theme?

That doesn’t happen much anymore. Composers still use themes for characters and situations, but they tend to be more subtle.

Game of Thrones” has themes for the Lannisters, the Starks and many subsidiary characters. But the series’ composer, Ramin Djawadi, says, “we didn’t want to overpower the listener, every time you see a different person and hear a different theme.”

It’s similar for Jeff Beal who prefers “storyline themes” in his music for “House of Cards”: “Those long story arcs have their own sound, their own musical expression,” he says.

Stephan James To Replace Star Wars’ John Boyega In Race

29 May 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was back in January 2014 that it was announced the young, British Attack The Block star, John Boyega would be taking the lead role in the Jesse Owens biopic Race, with filming due to begin this month. Things change quickly in Hollywood, however, and rather than begin principal photography now, Boyega has leapt at the chance to join the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII – and Stephan James will now replace him in the inspirational Olympic tale.

The Wrap reports that James – star of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival hit Home Again – will now tackle the role of Jesse Owens. The American track and field athlete stunned the world when he finished the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games with four gold medals – despite Hitler’s initial attempt to ban black and Jewish athletes from the competition. The threat of a boycott caused Hitler to publicly soften his stance, and Owens arrived to spectacularly steal the show. »

'Green Acres' is the Place to Be with a Feature Film in Development

5 May 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though lately there haven't been as many revivals of 60s TV series on the big screen lately as there were years ago, Lost in Space, The Fugitive, Get Smart and Bewitched all hail from that decade, and coming up we've got new versions of Gilligan's Island and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the works. Now another show from the 60s will hit the big screen as Deadline reports the CBS sitcom Green Acres has just been picked up by director Richard L. Bare for a feature film adaptation. Bare is one of the original directors of the TV series, and he's teaming up with Phillip Goldfine and his Hollywood Media Bridge to make it happen. The two producers are looking for a writer and director though, so the project is just in the nascent stages of development. You may know the Green Acres theme song better than the actual series, »

‘Jaws 3D’: Cheap Carny Tricks and SeaWorld Sharks

2 May 2014 8:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The summer of 2001 was especially tense. Having just been through an unending presidential election, the U.S. seemed especially on edge. Even before the towers fell in September, the media was already pushing a large, unknown insurgency, it’s face gracing the cover of Time just a month before.

The infamous “Summer of the Shark” cover is today gawked upon, like Y2K or the Africanized bees that preceded it. After a media feeding frenzy, there is always a through-the-looking-glass “What were we so worried about?” perspective that takes hold once reason sets in. And, as such, post-9/11, America stopped looking to the ocean.

Killer shark movies have since been relegated to direct-to-dvd shlock from Roger Corman and The Asylum.  However, just a few decades earlier, they were franchise-bait.

When Steven Spielberg was approached to direct a sequel to his first major success Jaws, he didn’t even bother responding. He »

Poster for Denzel Washington's The Equalizer

17 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Check out this poster for Denzel Washington’s latest action flick, The Equalizer. Based on an ’80s detective show, this one reunites Washington with Antoine Fuqua, who helped him score an Oscar for Training Day. Here’s the premise:

Washington plays a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.

In the original TV show, Edward Woodward played a retired intelligence officer, not a black ops commando who faked his own death, but you expect them to ratchet up the drama in adaptations like these. There have been some excellent movies based on shows from the ’70s and ’80s, including Maverick, The Fugitive, and the Mission Impossible franchise. On the other end of the spectrum you have Dark Shadows and Lost in Space. »

9 TV Stars Who Horribly Botched Their Big Leap Into Films

17 March 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Aaron Paul became a critically acclaimed actor while appearing in a recurring role on the television series Big Love and earned even more praise – and won two Emmy Awards – for his starring role on Breaking Bad. So why is it that the movie Need for Speed, which starred Paul, underperformed in U.S. theaters this past weekend?

Just because Paul is an award-winning actor on television does not mean audiences were going to pack the theaters to see his movie. In fact, there is a long history of wildly popular television stars who fail in their attempt to transition to movie stardom. In many cases, these TV stars made poor choices when it came to film roles. In other instances, viewers simply had no interest in seeing these actors play anything else but their beloved TV characters.

Malcolm Tierney obituary

21 February 2014 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Stage and screen actor who excelled in playing authority figures and appeared in TV shows such as Brookside and Lovejoy

Malcolm Tierney, who has died aged 75 of pulmonary fibrosis, was a reliable and versatile supporting actor for 50 years, familiar to television audiences as the cigar-smoking, bullying villain Tommy McArdle in Brookside, nasty Charlie Gimbert in Lovejoy and smoothie Geoffrey Ellsworth-Smythe in David Nobbs's A Bit of a Do, a Yorkshire small-town comedy chronicle starring David Jason and Gwen Taylor.

Always serious and quietly spoken offstage, with glinting blue eyes and a steady, cruel gaze that served him well as authority figures on screen, Tierney was a working-class Mancunian who became a core member of the Workers' Revolutionary party in the 1970s. He never wavered in his socialist beliefs, even when the Wrp imploded ("That's all in my past now," he said), and always opposed restricted entry to the actors' union, »
