Hitman: Agent 47

During a rare moment of quiet amid the glass-smashing, brain-bashing mayhem of “Hitman: Agent 47,” a character offers the wise observation that we are all a bit more complicated than our internal circuitry might suggest. Applying this logic to the movie itself, it’s fair to conclude that while Aleksander Bach’s directing debut is indeed the junky, incoherent shoot-’em-up we feared it might be, to dismiss it as just another late-August studio craptacular doesn’t quite do it justice. But what to call it, exactly? The 47th best action film of 2015? A feature-length Audi commercial, or a promo reel for the Singapore Tourism Board? The most unnecessary artistic contribution ever made by someone named Bach? Fox is surely hoping that “surprise box office hit” might be a plausible alternative, though the best one will likely be able to say on that front is that where disastrous franchise relaunches are concerned, »

ABC Family Sets Premiere Dates for Five New Summer Series

13 May 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC Family on Wednesday announced summer premiere dates for five new series — four of them unscripted and the other a single-camera comedy — that will join the net’s core lineup that includes “Pretty Little Liars,” “The Fosters” and “Baby Daddy.”

“Monica the Medium” kicks off ABC Family’s second wave of summer launches Monday, July 13 with its premiere at 10. The show provides an inside look at Monica, a junior at Penn State navigating friends, family, relationships — and the fact that she’s a medium and can talk to dead people. The show is produced by Dave Caplan’s Trooper Entertainment in association with Lionsgate TV. Caplan will serve as executive producer alongside Malachi McGlone.

“Job or No Job,” from the producers of “Undercover Boss,” bows Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 9. The series follows one young adult per episode on his/her journey to land a first job. Each job seeker will go on three interviews, »

StreamFix: Must-watch 'Daily Show' correspondent movies on Netflix now

30 March 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thanks to the news of Trevor Noah taking over Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" desk, we remembered something: Wow, "Daily Show" alums have basically taken over the world. If they're not landing primetime sitcom gigs, they're scoring Oscar nominations and populating romcoms. To celebrate Noah's new post, let's take a look at five Netflix picks starring the friends, colleagues, and cronies of Jon Stewart. Watch 'em now.  "Trevor Noah: African American" If you haven't been introduced to your new "Daily Show" host's brand of observational humor yet, check out his comedy special where he discusses his home country of South Africa and why racial relations there, even during the age of apartheid, are/were less complicated than in the U.S. His bit about Oprah Winfrey's leadership academy is particularly inspired. And a little unsettling! "Bruce Almighty" Oscar nominee Steve Carell wasn't always scarring you with his fake "Foxcatcher" nose and deathly "Foxcatcher" stare. »

Split Image: Stearns’ Debut a Dark Hearted Cult Comedy

The insidious recruitment techniques of religious cults used to be a veritable genre staple, beginning, perhaps, with the fascination surrounding the highly publicized Manson Family murders in the late 1960s. The media sensation resulted in a culturally acknowledged terror reflected in the cinema for decades to come, and one may recall a slew of 1980s titles that cashed in on these cultural fears, with titles like Ticket to Heaven (1981) and Bad Dreams (1988) now languishing in obscurity, despite a variety of notable historical markers, from the Jim Jones’ led mass suicide in 1978 Jonestown, Guyana, to the Branch Davidian and Heaven’s Gate episodes of the 1990s. It appears there may be a minor resurgence in the topic, with Ti West’s recent The Sacrament (2013) recreating the spirit of Jim Jones. Now, Faults, the directorial debut of Riley Stearns, which premiered at »

The Bourne and Dexter actor on her strange fascination with Geordie Shore, and why Strangers With Candy is a classic

Key & Peele: I don’t think you have it here but it’s a sketch comedy show. They’re just so clever and observant, and it’s very timely. There’s a very funny sketch that they do where one of the actors does an impersonation of Barack Obama and then the other one plays his sort-of inner monologue, and says all the angry, frustrated things that he can’t say publicly.
