The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – July 28th 2014

29 July 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Killing was an American remake from AMC based on the nordic noir show popularised over here by showings on BBC 4. The Us version moved things to Seattle where it rained constantly and revolved around the murder of Rosie Larson. Unfairly compared to Twin Peaks when it debuted, it was nonetheless something of a hit on Channel 4 for at least two seasons. I lost track of it around the mid-point of season two, not because I didn’t like it, I enjoyed it lots despite its grimness but it became impossible to keep up with the weekly scheduled showings and 4Od was, and still is not very good. From what I hear season two wrapped up the murder of Larson and season three moved on to a new mystery which was just as gripping.

The reason I mention this anyway is that like Arrested Development, Netflix has picked up »

Why Steven Soderbergh Quit Movies

7 July 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was hard to swallow the fact that the man who gave us “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” “Traffic” and the “Ocean’s” franchise was leaving the movie biz when Steven Soderbergh started winding down his movie career around this time last year. We’ve learned more about his motives since then and have been treated to a newfound focus on TV.

The director talked to Esquire about what prompted the decision heard ’round the movie world. You can thank Matt Damon, who starred in his HBO miniseries “Behind the Candelabra,” for that.

“The fact that it became a story at all is because of Matt Damon,” Soderbergh told the mag. “He remembered verbatim a drunk conversation we had in Chicago and repeated it to USA Today. I’d talked about it before and nobody gave a shit. It wasn’t until Matt said that I had a plan to get out. »

Fourth Clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

27 June 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Apes… do not want war!” Ape leader Caesar bellows this at the entrance of a human community, but with hundreds of apes riding horseback and clutching spears in their hands behind him, it sure looks like they’re prepared for war. The fragile co-existence between apes and humans looks ready to snap in the fourth clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

In the clip, Jason Clarke’s character Malcolm, determined to find a peaceful way for apes and humans to live together, walks ahead of the gun-toting crowd led by Dreyfus (Gary Oldman) to greet Caesar (Andy Serkis). But as you’ll see, Caesar has not visited to exchange pleasantries. We have three additional clips from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as the film’s official final trailer, for you to check out if you haven’t already.

New Clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

26 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Graphic novels can be the source of hours of entertainment, but in the apocalypse, they can be quite effective as an olive branch between enemy parties. While we’ve seen tension boiling over between humans and apes in previously released trailers and clips for the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the latest clip from the film shows a human and an orangutan enjoying one another’s company over a shared graphic novel.

The new clip showcases Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Alexander, who approaches Maurice the orangutan (Karin Konoval) with a trade paperback copy of Charles BurnsBlack Hole comic book series, which he then uses to see if his newfound friend can read.

Steven Soderbergh Brings 'The Girlfriend Experience' Anthology Series to Starz

23 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Starz today announced the greenlight of The Girlfriend Experience, a 13-part anthology series produced by Transactional Pictures. Inspired by the 2009 Magnolia Pictures film of the same title, Steven Soderbergh and Philip Fleishman will serve as executive producers along with independent filmmakers Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz, who will also write and direct on the series.

The scripted anthology series will feature 13 half-hour episodes.

The Girlfriend Experience explores the relationships of the most exclusive courtesans who provide their clients with far more than just sex. These purveyors - or GFEs (Girlfriend Experience) - share intimacies more common to romantic partners or husbands and wives, becoming quasi-lovers and confidants who are richly paid for their time.

The original feature, directed by Soderbergh and written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009.

Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz had this to say in his statement.

One of those is a new TV series based on his film The Girlfriend Experience. The Girlfriend Experience was originally released back in 2009 and barely »
