Why Gotham deserves to be given a chance

16 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Switching off Gotham now would be premature damnation of a potentially-excellent show. Rob explains why…

This article talks about Gotham up to episode five. There are no big spoilers, though.

In some corners of the internet, there are those who are already trying to call time on the Gotham TV show. From the small handful of episodes we’ve seen so far (5 have aired stateside and 2 in the UK), a few folk out there are acting all Ra’s al Ghul about the matter and telling us that Gotham is beyond saving and must be allowed to die.

The tone of some of these pieces, we'd suggest, goes beyond criticism into lambasting. It feels somewhat like the cool kids ganging up on the new boy who read the questions wrong in his school entrance exam and landed himself in the bottom set for everything. Sure, there have been mistakes, but »

Christina Ricci to Reprise Lizzie Borden Role for Lifetime Limited Series

22 October 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Christina Ricci and Lifetime are taking another whack at the life of notorious murder suspect Lizzie Bordon in the limited series “Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles,” the network announced today.

In the follow-up to January’s “Lizzie Borden Took An Ax,” this project will offer a fictionalized account of the events and people involved in Borden’s life as she encounters new-found celebrity after her controversial acquittal of the murders of her father and stepmother in 1892. When numerous people close to Lizzie — including her half-brother William (“Hatfields & McCoys'” Andrew Howard), Broadway luminaries, and the head of the criminal underworld start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances — legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser, “Good Will Hunting”) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise. Emmy nominee John Heard (“The Sopranos”) also stars as William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie’s murdered father Andrew. »

21 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having played very well to the audience at the London Film Festival, The Drop is set to open in the UK on November 14th and we have a new clip from the film. The Drop is directed by Belgian filmmaker Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead) and screenwriter Dennis Lehane (author of Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone), which stars Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) alongside the late James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) in his final screen role.

Check out the clip below and let Bob Saginowski (Hardy) explain how the the drop system works in Brooklyn.

The Drop is a new crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award nominated director of Bullhead.  Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funnelling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. »

Cheers, Moe's, Queen Vic: What is TV's best pub?

18 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Men Behaving Badly made a brief return in the form of a one-off sketch last night (October 13) as part of the Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Channel 4.

One of the highlights of the original series was Gary (Martin Clunes) and Tony's (Neil Morrissey) quest to find a new pub after The Crown gets a revamp. Gary's system of ranking their locals with different categories is a great tool for real-life pub crawls after moving somewhere new. Try it!

With this in mind, we pondered which pubs from TV history would rank well using a system similar to Gary's? We've chosen just a handful of famous watering holes in order to find the best one. The only rule is that they need to serve alcoholic drinks, so Central Perk doesn't count.

Moe's Tavern (The Simpsons) - 18/50

Ian Hart interview: The Driver, British film, Harry Potter

14 October 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chatted to Ian Hart about his on-screen reunion with David Morrissey in The Driver, Us TV, British film, Agents Of Shield and more...

You’ll know Ian Hart’s face, even if you can’t quite place his name. It’s a great face, his, adaptably young and old, as comfortable atop a tracksuit as it is underneath a period trilby. Since his first real role as Scouse tearaway Rabbit in 1983 drama One Summer (alongside childhood friend and The Driver co-star David Morrissey), Hart has avoided type-casting by leaping from role to role and film to film with convincing ease. He’s played scallies, authors, footballers, drug dealers, psychiatrists, CIA agents, physicists and nineteenth century gangsters. He’s played Beethoven, Nobby Stiles, Hitler, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Voldemort (sort of), and John Lennon (thrice). 

Three-part BBC One drama The Driver saw Hart play twins Col and Craig, one an »

Scream Factory Announces Handful of Upcoming Titles Featuring Vampires, Spader and Punks!

3 October 2014 6:26 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

As if we weren’t excited enough about Scream Factory‘s upcoming lineup of titles making their Bluray debuts, the gang at Sf have decided to make horror fans’ mouths water even more, with a handful of announcements regarding even More upcoming titles set to be unleashed in the near future. Not only do we get an update on the final release date on Sf’s Vault Of Horror/Tales From The Crypt double feature, but it’s official that Voh will be the uncut version!

Personally, I’m a fan of most of the films in the announcements, so obviously I’ll be jumping at them when they hit. The amount of times I watched Once Bitten as a kid is in the triple digit amount, so the announcement of the Love At First Bite/Once Bitten double is enough to make me smile from ear to ear. I »

Review: Starz's 'Survivor's Remorse' aims to build a better 'Entourage'

3 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

To describe the new Starz comedy "Survivor's Remorse" as "NBA Entourage" sounds at once accurate and dismissive. Accurate because it's a show about a twentysomething phenom sharing his fame and fortune with his closest friends and family, dismissive because the actual "Entourage" was pretty horrible by the end. But "Entourage" was entertaining before it became bloated and self-congratulatory and contemptuous of its own fans. And its laziness prevented it from thoroughly exploring all those questions about the intersection of family and celebrity, and of staying true to your roots even as you have the money and opportunity to do things you couldn't even dream of growing up. There's a ton of untapped potential in the idea, as demonstrated by the four episodes of "Survivor's Remorse" (it debuts tomorrow at 9 p.m.) that I've seen. Created by Mike O'Malley(*) — a sports fan who, when he's not acting, is a writer on »

'Sons of Anarchy' reaches the last fork in the road

3 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

An act of retaliation is under way. That’s nothing new for Sons of Anarchy, the FX show famous for doling out death sentences to beloved characters—except this bit of revenge is happening in between takes. It’s a September morning at Stevenson Ranch in California’s Santa Clarita Valley, and Charlie Hunnam is shooting a scene in which his character, Jax Teller, dodges gunfire from an angry redneck. After a break in the action, Hunnam delivers a quick and dirty punch to the arm of his costar Tommy Flanagan—payback for an earlier prank where Flanagan left a »

Book Review: Showrunners By Tara Bennett

3 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The official companion to the TV show of the same name, Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show takes an inside look at the world of TV from the people in charge, with contributions from people like Joss Whedon (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Damon Lindelof (of Lost), Terence Winter (of Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos) and Bill Prady (of The Big Bang Theory).

Many fascinating aspects are explored in the book and it’s so easily digestible that you can just dip in and out as you like – making it the perfect reference book to keep on your shelves.

It raises many important questions too. How is the industry changing now that shows are being streamed via channels such as Netflix? What are the negative sides to being a showrunner? How does it feel when you start running out of great ideas and the bosses want to keep a show going? »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

'Boardwalk Empire' Showrunner Terence Winter Preps Final Season

30 September 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Over the succeeding six years, Winter developed both, although "Boardwalk Empire" came to fruition far ahead of "The Wolf of Wall Street," which earned him his first Oscar nomination, for Adapted Screenplay, one of five nods for the movie.  Now Winter has executive produced the final Season 5 of "Boardwalk Empire." We spoke on the phone. Anne Thompson: You cut your teeth writing for David Chase on the landmark HBO series "The Sopranos"?  Terence Winter: Through the entire run. David, he's brilliant and funny. He and I clicked. We have the same sense of humor. We're both East Coast guys. We find a lot of the same things funny. We're still dear friends, he's so smart. David is a good writer: getting in the writers room with him, to learn and watch him and get notes from him, my writing exponentially got better over a two to three year period. »

'Sopranos' star Tony Sirico returning to 'Family Guy'-but not as Vinny the dog

Is Vinny the dog headed back soon to Family Guy? Not right away, but the actor who gave voice to him is. Tony Sirico—who played the Griffins’ replacement pooch for Brian in three episodes last season—is guest-starring in another episode this season, EW has learned exclusively. This time, the former star of The Sopranos will play a heightened version of himself in several live-action moments that are sprinkled into an installment of the animated Fox comedy that will air in late fall or early winter. “He is irritated about what’s being said a couple different times throughout one episode, »

Terence Winter Touts a Homefield Advantage for ‘Boardwalk Empire’

23 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Terence Winter came of age in New York City during the bad old days of the 1970s and early 1980s.

The “Boardwalk Empire” creator/showrunner remembers a time when areas of Manhattan such as the Upper East Side and Meatpacking District were a “no-man’s land.” By the time he left for Los Angeles to take a flier at being a TV and film writer, he was convinced that New York City would never be revitalized to the degree it is today.

He’s glad to have been wrong. Now he’s happily raising his two young children in Gotham with his wife, “Dallas Buyers Club” producer Rachel Winter.

New York City is a Key Plank for ‘Boardwalk Empire’s’ Attention to Detail

23 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Bronx County Courthouse, with its neoclassical majesty, needs no dressing up to double for 1930s Chicago.

On a muggy August afternoon, the “Boardwalk Empire” team makes the most of the granite-and-limestone steps leading into the courthouse, converting it into the setting for a scene featuring Al Capone turning himself in to face the tax evasion charges that ultimately landed him in Alcatraz. Shot from the south side, all the location needs to evoke 1931 is an assortment of period cars, appropriately attired extras and a few window air conditioner units removed via CGI from an apartment building in the deep background.

Director Tim Van Patten and crew are set up in a pop-up tent off to the side. Van Patten scrutinizes his monitor as they shoot take after take of “Boardwalk’s” Al Capone, actor Stephen Graham, swaggering up the steps while being mobbed by reporters and onlookers. (This Al »

Terence Winter and the ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Team on the Mob Men’s Last Call

23 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it debuted, “Boardwalk Empire” looked like the answer to HBO’s prayers.

Another mob series with a glittering pedigree, including Martin Scorsese, who practically defined post-“The Godfather” crime movies; and “The Sopranos” alums Terence Winter and Steve Buscemi. A barrel full of Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe award quickly followed.

Yet despite early awards heat and critical accolades, the pay-tv paean to Atlantic City didn’t fully cash in. What HBO programming president Michael Lombardo dubbed “one of the most superb ensemble casts of any television show I can think of” nabbed eight Emmys its freshman year (one short of “The West Wing’s” record), but lost best drama to “Mad Men,” produced by Winter’s former “Sopranos” colleague Matthew Weiner.

“Boardwalk” has remained a critical favorite. Yet with the crush of prestigious new programs in the ensuing years, the show slipped off the best-series ballot the past two seasons. »

Desperate Housewives Emmy-Nominated Actress Lost Her Fortune Following Stock-Market Crash

22 September 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Polly Bergen: 'Desperate Housewives' Emmy nominee; winner for 'The Helen Morgan Story' (photo: Felicity Huffman, Doug Savant, and Polly Bergen in 'Desperate Housewives') (See previous article: "Polly Bergen: Actress on Richard Nixon 'Enemies List'.") Polly Bergen began her lengthy — and to some extent prestigious — television career in 1950, making sporadic appearances in anthology series. She won an Emmy for Best Actress in a Single Performance – Lead or Supporting — beating Julie Andrews, Helen Hayes, Teresa Wright, and Piper Laurie — for playing troubled torch singer Helen Morgan (Show Boat) in the 1957 Playhouse 90 episode "The Helen Morgan Story," featuring veteran Sylvia Sidney as Morgan's mother. Curiously, Bergen's retelling of Helen Morgan's story was broadcast the same year that Ann Blyth starred in Michael Curtiz's Morgan biopic. Also titled The Helen Morgan Story, the film focused on the relationship between the singer and a »
