8 May 2015 4:47 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

If there’s one thing Revenge knows how to do, it’s end things with a bang. The ABC drama, which was loosely based off the classic novel The Count of Monte Cristo, is known for its cliffhangers, twists, disastrous cocktail parties, deliciously campy dialogue, and shocking deaths. So with the series finale airing Sunday, May 10, Us Weekly spoke to showrunner Sunil Nayar about the conclusion to his four-season thrill ride.  “Last year’s season finale was just so satisfying,” he told Us of the episode in which Emily [...] »

How 'Gilmore Girls' Changed My Life in the Best Way Possible

4 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

My mom and I watch a lot of television together. Binge-watching shows is one of our bonding experiences, and it isn't just about lying on the couch and watch seven straight hours of TV. We'll watch everything from "Game of Thrones" to "Parks and Recreation" together, and then we'll take the time to discuss our favorite characters, our conspiracy theories, our opinions on any moral and psychological complexities the show may have. It's a fun way to spend time with my mom, while also giving me the opportunity to watch some quality TV. The first show that we ever watched together in this way was "Gilmore Girls," and it definitely affected both of our lives for the better.

Way back when I was in seventh grade, my mom and I decided to rent the DVDs for the first season of "Gilmore Girls" from the library. (Wow, it's been only seven »

‘Sons of Soldiers’ Football Movie in the Works with Richard Donner (Exclusive)

20 February 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Donner, Derek Hoffman, Bobby Sabelhaus and John Zaozirny are developing drama “Sons of Soldiers,” centering on a high school football team at Fort Campbell, Ky., and the impact of the players’ parents serving in the military.

“For us, this is a project that goes beyond the traditional sports drama, to explore the sacrifices that not only soldiers make, but also their spouses and children,” Sabelhaus told Variety.

“This is about the wives and children who are on the other end of all those phone calls we see in films like ‘American Sniper,'” he added. “Though they’re not on a battlefield, they make massive sacrifices as well, going weeks without knowing where their father or mother, husband or wife are.”

The producers have obtained the life rights to Shawn Berner, who successfully coached the Fort Campbell Falcons for more than a decade. They have also hired screenwriter Robert Eisele, »

R.I.P. Louis Jourdan

16 February 2015 5:52 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

French film and TV actor Louis Jourdan has died at the age of 93.

After appearing in several French films, Jourdan starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s "The Paradine Case" in 1947 and shot various films over the next decade including "Madame Bovary," "Decameron Nights," and "Three Coins in the Fountain".

In 1958 he had his big break as a playboy in the musical "Gigi," which scored him a Golden Globe nomination. It also led to plenty of film and TV projects including 1961's "The Count of Monte Cristo," "To Commit a Murder," "Swamp Thing" and his final film "Year of the Comet".

However he's probably best remembered for his role as the exiled Afghan prince and villain Kamal Khan in the often underrated yet memorable Roger Moore-led 1983 James Bond film "Octopussy". The actor is one of the few to have two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work.

Louis Jourdan, Star of ‘Octopussy,’ ‘Gigi,’ Dies at 93

15 February 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Louis Jourdan, who crafted a Hollywood acting career in the footsteps of fellow dapper Frenchmen Maurice Chevalier and Charles Boyer and is best remembered for the musical “Gigi” and as the villain in James Bond pic “Octopussy,” has died at 93. According to his friend and biographer Olivier Minne, he died Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills.

Jourdan offered a certain effortless charm that worked equally well in light heroic roles and more sinister ones.

“He was the last French figure of the Hollywood golden age. And he worked with so many of the greatest actors and directors,” said Minne, who is working on a documentary and a book about Jourdan.

In Vincente Minnelli’s 1958 musical confection “Gigi,” Jourdan starred with Leslie Caron and Chevalier in an effort from the “My Fair Lady” team of Lerner & Loewe, turning the Collette tale into a Frenchified version of “Pygmalion.” The New York Times said, »

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

12 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.
