‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Review: USA’s Hacker Series Raises Zeitgeist Stakes

20 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Although I was a dissenter, few new series received the kind of widespread love Mr. Robot did when it debuted last year. Now back for a second 12-episode season on July 13, the Golden Globe- and Peabody Award-winning USA Network hacktivist series has expanded its scope considerably into, to quote co-star Christian Slater, the "infinite loop of insanity," with encryption as the key. Launching off its once-too-constraining and obvious Fight Club influences, Mr. Robot, as I… »

Mistresses Recap: Post-Traumatic Mess Disorder

27 June 2016 8:01 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Normally, you’d hear no complaints from me about Mistresses‘ Josslyn Carver hacking a rival’s cell phone, using his rotten texts for her professional gain, then celebrating with a giant glass of vodka (followed by a beer in a plastic cup).

After all, I cheered wildly in previous seasons when she explored the world of Japanese bondage rope, attempted to seduce her boss’ husband as part of a sex-lies-and-videotape sting operation, and work-work-work-worked from home* with her sister’s ex-husband. (*Thanks for the innuendo, ladies of Fifth Harmony!)

Survivor - based on a novel from Fight Club's Chuck Palahniuk - is heading to the small screen. We've got all the info here...

Chuck Palahniuk is best known for writing Fight Club, the novel that morphed into a Brad Pitt/Ed Norton starring movie and earned legendary status among cult film fans along the way. Now, two more adaptations of Palahniuk novels are on the way. 

For one, Palahniuk's 1999 novel Survivor is heading to the small screen. The author broke the news himself, writing on Reddit that "Survivor is in development as a television series. Jim Uhls, the screenwriter of Fight Club is writing the first season. That is all I am allowed to tell you." We're waiting to hear details about which network/studio is behind this project.

If you're unfamiliar with the novel, here's a synopsis for Survivor, courtesy of Good Reads...

'BattleBots': Show Ep promises projectiles, fire-breathing drones in Season 2

23 June 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A couple of years ago, I wrote a story for Sports Illustrated about something called chess boxing. It’s pretty much like it sounds - people box for a couple minutes and then switch to playing chess for a few more minutes. This goes back and forth until someone gets knocked out or checkmated. I affectionately referred to it as “Fight Club for Nerds.” I stand corrected. That title really should belong to the ABC series BattleBots. The show, which is a reboot of the old Comedy Central program of the same title, is a competition between robots (and their drivers) that look to pulverize each other into fine bits of shrapnel while throngs of fans scream in excitement. And when you consider each robot costs around $14,000, that’s some expensive shrapnel. It’s as wacky as it sounds. Nerds like me inexplicably watch it because…that’s what we do. »

Olivia @ 100: The Dark Mirror

20 June 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're counting down to Olivia de Havilland's historic 100th birthday (July 1st!). Team Experience will be looking at highlights and curiosities from her career. Here's Jason...

I'm proud of my fellow Film Experience members Dan and Josh for keeping their focus on the films so far in this series, but it seems kind of impossible to talk about Olivia de Havilland's 1946 thriller The Dark Mirror, which has her playing good and evil twins, without diving into the gossipy froth of her legendary lifetime rivalry with sister Joan Fontaine. The Dark Mirror sits somewhere between an exorcism and a single-gloved slap-fight - Fight Club via Film Noir. It offered Olivia the chance to play versions of both her and her sister's popular images, exaggerated and unloosed upon one another.

In a 2015 Time magazine piece on the sisters' feud it's said that Olivia was known for playing "pretty and charming, »

Looks like the 'Suicide Squad' director took the Joker's 'Fight Club' background a bit too seriously

17 June 2016 12:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're about a month and a half away from Suicide Squad blazing into theaters, and Jared Leto's method approach to the Joker is already the stuff of legend. We've heard tell of his total immersion in the psyche of the mad villain on set, and of sending his fellow castmates bullets, a live rat, and a dead hog (in character) among other things as production presents. But director David Ayer may not be far behind Leto in his technique. He also may have taken Leto's link to Fight Club a bit too seriously. (Leto played pretty boy Angel Face in the David Fincher film.) According to Yahoo!, Ayer had the actors "hit each other as hard as they could" in rehearsal. Yep. The idea is that a person's fighting style reveals a great deal about who they are, which is probably true. But also kind of insane when you »

Horror Highlights: Intruder, Traders, The Dooms Chapel Horror, Rise Of The Black Flame #1

16 June 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A quiet night at home turns into a frightening game of cat-and-mouse in the official trailer for IFC Midnight’s Intruder. Also in today’s Horror Highlights: a trailer and release details for the John Bradley-starring film Traders, teaser videos and release information for The Dooms Chapel Horror, and the cover art and details for the first issue of Dark Horse’s Rise of the Black Flame comic book series.

Watch the Trailer for Intruder: “A young woman’s quiet night in becomes a free-fall into fear in this disturbing home invasion thriller. After she lands her dream job, a young cellist (Louise Linton) settles in for a relaxing few days holed up in her apartment but as a violent storm rages outside, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her every move. Cleverly toying with the rules of suspense, director Travis Z wrings maximum terror from everyone’s worst nightmare: you may not be alone.”

Written and directed by Travis Zariwny, Intruder stars Louise Linton, John Robinson, and Moby. The film will be released theatrically in New York and on VOD nationwide on June 24th courtesy of IFC Midnight.”

Traders Trailer, Poster, and Release Details: Press Release: “Desperate times call for desperate measures, but the scheme at the center of Traders may be the most desperate of all. The twist-filled suspense drama in which young men risk their lives to get ahead stars John Bradley (Samwell from Game of Thrones) and Killian Scott. Traders will be available on Digital Platforms and Cable VOD on July 11, 2016.

Jobs are gone. Homes are being repossessed. Suicide rates are soaring. But newly unemployed Vernon Stynes (John Bradley, Game of Thrones) might have the solution to the despair brought on by recession. He masterminds a diabolical, all-or-nothing plan he calls Trading. Through an underground online network of similarly displaced individuals, two people agree to “trade” by emptying their bank accounts, selling everything they own and putting the cash in nondescript green bags. They then travel to a remote location, dig a grave and fight to the death. Winner buries the loser and takes the two bags.

Then you find someone else and do it again, and again, and again, until you are rich enough or dead, whichever comes first. Like Vernon, Harry Fox (Killian Scott, Calvary, Love/Hate) has lost his job and his dignity. What else has he got to lose? Why not become a Trader? But when Trading becomes an alarmingly popular underground phenomenon, Vernon becomes a participant in the very game he created. Featuring an exciting young cast and sure to appeal to fans of such classics as Shallow Grave and Fight Club, Traders is a daring and troubling look at the depths to which ordinary people can be driven.

Rise of the Black Flame #1 (of 5) Release Details & Cover Art: “Press Release: “Milwaukie, Or— This September, legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola,iZOMBIE co-creator Chris Roberson, Criminal Macabre and 30 Days of Night artist Christopher Mitten, award winning colorist Dave Stewart and cover artist Laurence Campbell will present Rise Of The Black Flame. This five issue miniseries from Dark Horse Comics will present a dark horror story about an ancient, evil power. In Rise Of The Black Flame, young girls are going missing from the cities of Siam, and the trail leads to the jungle hideout of a bloodthirsty cult– the Cult of the Black Flame.

“There have been several villains in Hellboy’s world who’ve been called the Black Flame, and the striking visual of a skeleton burning with dark flames is pretty hard to beat,” said co-writer Chris Roberson. “In Rise Of The Black Flame, we reveal that before there was a man called the Black Flame, there was an ancient cult hidden deep in the jungles of Southeast Asia known by that name. We plumb the depths of cruelty and ruthlessness that groups of people are capable of reaching, and explore how this cult which reaches back to prehistoric times is connected to the most dangerous villain in the history of the Hellboy books.”

“After all these years it’s still so exciting to find new corners (or in this case a giant shadowy, uncharted abyss of horror) of the Hellboy world left to explore,” said Mike Mignola.

In addition to Rise Of The Black Flame, Roberson and Mignola will be co-writing Hellboy & The Bprd: 1954 and Witchfinder: City Of The Dead. Rise Of The Black Flame will mark the Mignolaverse debut of artist Christopher Mitten.

“It is tremendous fun–and a little surreal–to be given the chance to dive into this fantastic universe,” said Christopher Mitten. “Mike and Chris (with whom I’ve long wanted to work) have concocted a fantastic story, and then there’s Dave Stewart…I mean, Knowing Dave would be coloring and then actually Seeing his artistry in action are two wholly different things. Getting a chance to dip my toe into this expansive world has made me want to dig in and explore more of it, to go off into little corners and find what strangeness, what beauty, lurks there.”

Rise Of The Black Flame #1 (of 5) goes on sale from Dark Horse Comics on September 7. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop!”

Marilyn Manson is best known as the frontman of the Marilyn Manson band, whose music garnered much controversy from politicians and the public for their nihilistic lyrics, graphic imagery, and provocative statements. Manson got tied up in the aftermath of the deadly Columbine shooting when he was blamed by politicians and the media for inciting the violence with his music. Manson has appeared in many films including David Lynch’s “Lost Highway,” Michael Moore’s “Bowling For Columbine,” in which he discussed the media’s interest in scapegoating rather than focusing on broader societal issues, and a recurring role on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

Mark Boone Junior is best known for his role on “Sons of Anarchy,” along with his performances in Christopher Nolan’s “Memento” and “Batman Begins,” Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line,” and David Fincher’s “Seven.” He will soon appear in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation,” about Nat Turner, the leader of a slave rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831.

Let Me Make You a Martyr” will premiere at Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal next month. Manson will be in attendance.

Three Screenwriting Techniques Gillian Flynn Used to Increase the Tension of ‘Gone Girl’

9 June 2016 6:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With David Fincher at the helm, many attributed the success of Gone Girl to his specific darkly comedic style and slick visual aesthetic, but author-turned-screenwriter Gillian Flynn was just as substantial in its making. Today we have a great video essay from Lessons From the Screenplay that looks at three specific techniques she utilized, some in addition to her novel and others there from the beginning.

The video breaks down how efficient action lines add a wealth of development to our characters, then it segues to how scenes begin with a broader set-up and funnel down towards a single point in the final line (using Nick’s realization that he needs a lawyer as the prime example), and lastly, how subplot character help greatly inform the central plot.

8 powerfully effective voice-overs in modern movies

7 June 2016 6:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Sometimes funny, often poignant, narration can be hugely effective when deployed successfully. Ryan picks a few great examples...

“God help you if you use voice-over in your work my friends! God help you. That’s flaccid, sloppy writing. Any idiot can use narration to explain the thoughts of a character.”

So says screenwriting coach Robert McKee in Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman’s 2002 film, Adaptation. Well, not the real screenwriting coach Robert Mckee, but the one played in superbly aggressive style by actor Brian Cox, who stomps about on stage at a writing seminar like an angry bull. Brilliantly, McKee’s condemnation of voice-overs interrupts the interior thoughts, as narrated by Nicolas Cage’s fictionalised version of Charlie Kaufman - a terminally anxious screenwriter with an Everest-sized case of writer’s block.

It’s an example of the quirky, hall-of-mirrors kind of humour that courses through Adaptation, »

Game of Thrones: Three Ways That Arya Stark Isn't [Redacted]

Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6, episode 7 "The Broken Man" follow... Game of Thrones' seventh episode ended with a cliffhanger that -- by all indications -- co-executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss don't plan to drag out. Arya has been stabbed, possibly fatally...Yeah, she's not dead. In fact, you can see her fleeing for her life from the Waif in the preview for next week's episode. Take a look below: So how did Arya get out of this one? Here are three ways that Arya may have escaped death. That's Not Arya: As Donna Dickens and I discussed in our review of this week's episode, that was some very un-Arya-like behavior from A Girl. First, where exactly was Needle?

Top Movies That Totally Flopped at the Box Office

6 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ah, youth. The days when you reveled in your dorm room and feasted on delicacies like hair dryer-warmed pizza or ramen gently braised over a light bulb. Your bank account might've been empty, but you still managed to feed your soul with the deepest of lessons: Money isn't everything.

And you weren't alone when enlightenment struck. Since Hollywood's golden age, plenty of movies that had hard-knock openings later blossomed into beloved cinematic staples or legit cult classics. Here are just a few, in all their flop-to-favorite glory.

'It's a Wonderful Life' (1946)

Unthinkable as it seems, "It's a Wonderful Life" was not having a very wonderful life at all in 1946. Though award season was kind to the movie, audiences just weren't feeling its darker themes, and Rko Pictures wasn't feeling the money -- "Life" lost about $525,000 at the box office.

Is the Waif Actually Arya? This Game of Thrones Theory Sounds Pretty Likely

6 June 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

One of the most exciting twists in movies of the late 1990s was the reveal in Fight Club that the characters played by Edward Norton and Brad Pitt are one and the same. The audience loved this moment, and the box office proved it. It would not surprise any of us, therefore, that viewers would look for similar reveals in movies and television shows and writers would seek to emulate this storytelling technique. It should also not surprise us that, after experiencing such mind-blowing reveals as how Hodor came to be known as Hodor, viewers of season six of Game of Thrones have started to wonder if the show is pulling a Fight Club on us with Arya and the Waif after this week's episode. Here is the latest theory that's blowing up the internet. The Theory That Arya Stark and the Waif Are the Same Person The theory, first credited to Redditor catNamedStupidity, »
