Beirut Trailer Drops Jon Hamm in the Middle of a War Zone

Beirut Trailer Drops Jon Hamm in the Middle of a War Zone
Bleecker Street has released the first trailer and poster for Beirut (formerly known as High Wire Act), which presents a compelling tale of the violent strife the world witnessed in the capital city of Lebanon in the early 1980s. While this thrilling drama isn't based on a true story, the trailer sets the story in at the same time as the Siege of Beirut, during the 1982 Lebanon War. Given the violent landscape we see here, it's likely this fictional tale is set against the backdrop of real-life events.

The story centers on Mason Skyles (Jon Hamm), a U.S. diplomat who was Deputy Chief of Mission in Beirut in 1972, but he would flee Lebanon after a tragic incident at his home that resulted in the death of his wife. Ten years later, he is called back to war-torn Beirut by CIA operatives (Rosamund Pike and Dean Norris) to negotiate for

The true story behind Dougray Scott playing Wolverine in X-Men and why Hugh Jackman took over

Luke Owen looks back at a time when Hugh Jackman was not Wolverine

There was a lot of buzz and excitement in 1999. People around planet earth were excited to see what the new Millennium would bring; while big companies panicked that the Y2K bug would kill all their hard work and shut down the working world. For Dougray Scott, 1999 was set to be the year that changed his career. He had been handpicked by Tom Cruise to play the villain in M:i:2 and he was set to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.

The adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics property had been a long one. In 1984 Marvel writers Gerry Conway and Rob Thomas wrote a screenplay for production company Orion Pictures (Platoon) who had optioned the film rights. But when the company fell into financial troubles the rights went over to Carolco Pictures (First Blood) who began

Frequency Premiere: Is The CW's Time- Travel Drama Worth More of Your Time?

Frequency Premiere: Is The CW's Time- Travel Drama Worth More of Your Time?
Time travel is all the rage on TV right now, from escapist fun (Timeless) to sweeping romance (Outlander). The CW’s Frequency — a reboot of the 2000 Dennis Quaid film — opts for the heartstring-tugging route, with a daughter reconnecting with her deceased dad via a magical radio.

Wednesday’s series premiere introduced us to Raimy Sullivan (Mad Men‘s Peyton List), an NYPD detective in present-day Queens, with a nice boyfriend who’s about to pop the question. But Raimy’s still haunted by the memory of her cop dad Frank (Nashville‘s Riley Smith), who died while working undercover twenty years ago,

‘Frequency’ Creator Explains Show’s ‘Butterfly-Effect Rules’
Jeremy Carver doesn’t necessarily consider his new series “Frequency” a time-travel show, though it’s a handy shorthand in a season lousy with time travel programs. “Let’s put it this way: It’s a lot snappier to say it’s a time-travel show than a cross-time communication show,” the showrunner told TheWrap in a recent interview about his series, which is an updated remake of the 2000 Dennis Quaid film of the same name. This time around, it’s 2016, and police detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) inexplicably finds herself able to communicate on an old ham radio with her father,

‘Frequency’ Review: CW Joins TV’s Time-Travel Craze With Peyton List Drama
Back in 2000, the Gregory Hoblit movie “Frequency” opened to strong box-office and generally upbeat reviews. Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel played father and son crossing time via ham radio to perform gymnastics of weather, time and space — and of course gain the joy of a moving emotional closure. The CW is performing its own time-travel experiment (one of several in a nostalgia-crowded season), using Hoblit’s thriller as the source of a flawed but watchable small-screen reimagining of the original film. “Frequency” the series revels in the fanciful liberties of leapfrogging time, just as the movie did. But the producers.

Peyton List is an American actress and model.”

This Wikipedia description is accurate and true. The problem? It’s true about two different people. That’s right. Two Peyton Lists are working actresses and models. Two Peyton Lists are, um, listed on IMDb. Two Peyton Lists are currently on our TVs. Two Peyton Lists are confusing our Google searches. Two Peyton Lists are messing with our minds.

Frequency review – time travel thriller is surprise small screen winner

A remake of the 2000 Dennis Quaid sci-fi thriller manages to remain exciting and original, despite its dusty heritage

The two biggest trends of the 2016 television season are remakes (Lethal Weapon, MacGyver, The Exorcist) and time travel shows (Timeless, the upcoming Time After Time and Making History). It would seem that Frequency is the conflation of these two separate threads, but hardly anyone remembers the 2000 Dennis Quaid movie that the series is based on and no one actually travels through time. They just talk about it on the radio. Maybe it’s because it has both of these traits – or maybe because it doesn’t really have either – that Frequency is the best of either bunch.

Fall TV: Is 'Frequency' the Best Reboot Series of the Season?

  • Yidio
2016-10-04T11:38:44-07:00Fall TV: Is 'Frequency' the Best Reboot Series of the Season?

The rush to turn old movies into new TV series has met with mixed success so far this fall, but there are indications that one new reboot series could have what it takes to find real success. The CW's Frequency updates an elderly movie, and it taps into some premise devices that are pretty common on TV now, but it's getting warm reviews from critics nonetheless.

The original film on which the new series is based starred Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid. Caviezel's character is a young man who, through some mysterious process, is able to communicate via a radio with his long-deceased father, played by Quaid. The pair are able to establish the relationship they were never able to have while Quaid's character was alive, and they also manage to solve a murder.

Review: NBC's time-travel adventure 'Timeless' gets the human element right

Review: NBC's time-travel adventure 'Timeless' gets the human element right
All time travel stories are gibberish — and I say this as someone who has spent a lot of my life reading, watching, and enjoying stories about time travel. No matter how thoroughly the rules of traveling to the past or future have been laid out and explained to the audience, they never fully make sense, never entirely manage to duck under the question of paradox, and will always make your brain hurt if you try to think about it too hard. The climax of the Jim Caviezel/Dennis Quaid movie Frequency(*), to name one, falls apart halfway through, because Quaid does something to the bad guy in the past that would certainly prevent him from being in front of Caviezel in the present(**). (*) Frequency is, conveniently for this review, being turned into a TV show, debuting Wednesday night at 9 on the CW. I enjoyed the pilot — which gender flips the

In Defense of the Reboot: How Remakes Can Still Result in Great TV

In Defense of the Reboot: How Remakes Can Still Result in Great TV
It’s not just a cliche: Everything old is indeed new again on TV, particularly this upcoming season.

Fox is leading the drive, with three upcoming shows based on existing titles: “The Exorcist,” a new take on an old horror franchise; “Lethal Weapon,” a remake of the 1980s buddy comedy, and “Prison Break,” which is a continuation of that original series (expected in early 2017). CBS is also on the bandwagon, with new takes on “MacGyver” and “Training Day.”

The networks went through a similar exercise last year, and the results were mixed. At Fox, “Minority Report” was a dud, but the return of “The X-Files” was a massive ratings hit. CBS’ “Rush Hour” was a miss, but a new version of “The Odd Couple” is picking up steam.

Just as sequel and franchise mania envelops the film biz, it’s easy to knock TV for its constant desire to ride the wayback machine.

Past Meets Present in new promo for the Frequency TV series

With a month to go until its season premiere, a new promo has arrived online for The CW’s upcoming drama Frequency entitled ‘Past Meets Present’.

Detective Raimy Sullivan (Peyton List) has always wanted to prove that she is nothing like her father. In 1996, when Raimy was eight years old, NYPD Officer Frank Sullivan (Riley Smith) left Raimy and her mother, Julie (Devin Kelley), behind when he went deep undercover, got corrupted, and got himself killed. Or so the story has always gone. Now, twenty years later, Raimy is stunned when a voice suddenly crackles through her father’s old, long-broken ham radio – it’s Frank, somehow transmitting over the airwaves and through the decades

20 new fall TV shows to get excited about
Once upon a time, conventional wisdom in TV suggested that any shows debuting outside of the fall were in some way lesser than the ones launching in September and October. Thanks to cable, streaming, and even a transformation of the way the broadcast networks schedule things, the roles have almost entirely reversed: now the really special stuff gets saved for January or later, while a lot of what's scheduled for a more traditional launch can be viewed as cannon fodder. This TV season, for instance, Fox is saving its revivals of 24 and Prison Break for 2017, and the CW is doing the same with its highest-profile new series, Riverdale. But there's still a lot of promising stuff coming this fall across broadcast, cable, and streaming — not just the welcome return of shows like Rectify, You're the Worst, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but a far more exciting batch of new series than were
