“Training Day” (CBS): Antoine Fuqua returns to one of his most iconic works, by turning the tables on the “rogue cop mentors young protege” “Son of Zorn” (Fox): Leave it to Phil Lord and Chris Miller to come up with an animation-live action hybrid that feels truly original, with their signature subversive humor in tact. “Downward Dog” (ABC): Allison Tolman was a breakout star of FX’s “Fargo,” and she gets a scene-stealing co-star in this surprisingly touching and earnest (but still funny) look at the relationship between a dog and his best friend. “Making History” (Fox »

Since its inception, Suicide Squad has screamed of subversiveness. From the premise- which pits a deranged pack of DC villains together on a suicide mission- to some of the casting choices, from the wild stories of Jared Leto letting his freak flag fly to prepare for Joker, and right down to the hiring of David Ayer- who isn't exactly known for making safe Hollywood fare- we've known that Suicide Squad wasn't going to be, in anyway, paint-by-numbers.
Now comes another behind-the-scenes tale from the making of the next film in the Dceu...
According to Cara Delevingne, who plays Enchantress in the film, she was given some rather peculiar advice by her director upon getting the part.

A big trend for t.v. recently has been small screen reboots of popular movies, with the likes of Hannibal, Limitless, Bates Motel, From Dusk Till Dawn, and Minority Report all playing to varying degrees of success. The upcoming 2016/2017 season doesn’t see that trend ending any time soon. We’ve already seen the trailer for the suspect Lethal Weapon series, and The Exorcist and Frequency are also coming our way. We all know how these will probably turn out, but there’s one show that could prove to be the diamond in the rough, and that is Training Day. Yes, the same Training Day that gave us one of Denzel Washington’s greatest performances is coming to t.v., with Bill Paxton stepping into his shoes as the morally compromised detective Frank Rourke. Yes, Bill Paxton. Now that I have your attention, check out the trailer below. Paxton has »

Omerta – a mafia-focused television series from Antoine Fuqua – has snapped up Sly Stallone for its lead....
Here’s an exciting one. The legendary Sylvester Stallone is teaming up with action-directing maestro Antoine Fuqua for a new TV series about the mafia. The show is called Omerta, and its based on a novel of the same name from The Godfather author Mario Puzo.
Here’s the synopsis for the book, courtesy of Goodreads...
“To Don Raymonde Aprile's children he was a loyal family member, their father's adopted "nephew." To the FBI he was a man who would rather ride his horses than do Mob business. No one knew why Aprile, the last great American Don, had adopted Astorre Viola many years before in Sicily; no one suspected how he had carefully trained him... and how, while the Don's children claimed respectable careers in America, Astorre Viola waited for his time to come. »
Sylvester Stallone, the TV star?
The “Rocky” icon has been attached to star in the television adaptation of Mario Puzo’s “Omerta,” which is being developed by “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua. No network is attached, but the hot project is currently being shopped around, eyeing a straight-to-series order, likely from cable networks and streaming services.
“Omerta” is the third book in the mafia trilogy that started with “The Godfather.”
The pilot script and series outline are already in place, according to Deadline who reports that a writers room is being put together, suggesting a quick turnaround for production to begin. Justin Herber and Adam Hoff wrote the pilot script, and the search for a showrunner is on.

It’s almost the end of April, dear readers, and that means the start of the summer movie season is nearly upon us. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ examines the teaser trailer for director Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven.
Premise: With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from a motley crew of seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers, and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier).
