Jennifer Connelly isn't just "Sarah" in "Labyrinth" or "Alicia" in "A Beautiful Mind," -- oh, wait. No, yeah. Yeah she is. She really kind of is, but that's part of her appeal -- that she's these ageless, timeless characters and nobody really gives her her due. This interview, though. It's pretty good. It shows a side of Jennifer that you don't often see, and it's pretty nice. This, for example -- Jennifer on how she spent her extra-curricular time in high school: "I wish I had not been a complete nerd. I had no sense of humor and took myself so seriously. I was really interested in school and keen to prove to myself that I was not just a sexual object at 18. So I concentrated on being a good student and got good grades. I was not concerned with a social life. I would stay in the library studying. »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on Fox.
While "The Following" proved a breakout winner, Fox had few success stories last season. So, it is going a bit more ambitious this year with numerous dramas, comedies and one-off "event series".
Several pilots didn't make the final cut and won't be seen including the family of government-sanctioned assassins drama "Boomerang," the adaptation of Lauren Oliver's book trilogy "Delirium" about a world where love is illegal, the legal interns workplace comedy "To My Assistant," the U.S.S. Lexington-set "The Wild Blue," and "The List" about the hunt for a thief who stole a file containing the secret identities of people in the Witness Security Program,

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Los Angeles — A futuristic drama from producer-writer J.J. Abrams of "Lost" and the "Star Trek" movie franchise and a comedy with Andy Samberg of "Saturday Night Live" fame as a carefree police detective will be on Fox's new schedule, the network said.
Four new dramas and five comedies were announced Wednesday for the 2013-14 season by Fox, which got a jump on network presentations to advertisers set for next week in New York.
The Abrams-produced drama, with the working title "Almost Human," was described by Fox as an "action-packed" police series set 35 years in the future, when officers are teamed with human-like androids. The cast will include Karl Urban, Michael Ealy and Lili Taylor.
Greg Kinnear will take on his first continuing broadcast series role in "Rake," a legal drama based on a hit Australian series of the same name, Fox said. The actor, whose movie credits include "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Baby Mama, »
The 2013-14 primetime season is starting to take shape, with Fox handing out series orders to four dramas.
The new entrants encompass a legal vehicle toplined by Greg Kinnear, two cop shows — one set 35 years in the future, the other among present-day gang unit — and a time-travel fantasy “Sleepy Hollow.” Fox is clearly leaning toward guy-friendly fare to build on the momentum it has developed this season with the gory serial killer drama “The Following.”

A psychological thriller charting the disintegration of a police family as two brothers living in the shadow of their father investigate the murder of a young girl...
Supernatural noir is not usually something you would associate with the UK crime output of recent years. Mockney accents and slapstick humour yes, but intense expressionistic layers of guilt ridden dread? None too often, sadly.
Thankfully then, this new movie from Nick Murphy (The Awakening) manages to address the balance somewhat. Based on writer Bill Gallagher's TV miniseries Conviction, it largely succeeds as a tightly webbed thriller with gothic and psychological horror touches.
Concentrating on the investigation into the death of a teenage girl, the film brings the personalities and internal workings of the two brothers ascribed to the case sharply into focus. Their relationship with »

Oscar winners Olivia de Havilland and Luise Rainer among movie stars of the 1930s still alive With the passing of Deanna Durbin this past April, only a handful of movie stars of the 1930s remain on Planet Earth. Below is a (I believe) full list of surviving Hollywood "movie stars of the 1930s," in addition to a handful of secondary players, chiefly those who achieved stardom in the ensuing decade. Note: There’s only one male performer on the list — and curiously, four of the five child actresses listed below were born in April. (Please scroll down to check out the list of Oscar winners at the 75th Academy Awards, held on March 23, 2003, as seen in the picture above. Click on the photo to enlarge it. © A.M.P.A.S.) Two-time Oscar winner and London resident Luise Rainer (The Great Ziegfeld, The Good Earth, The Great Waltz), 103 last January »

We're getting to know the Film Experience community with reader spotlights once or twice a week. This may take awhile! Today we're talking to Troy from Maryland.
What's your first movie memory?
My first movie memory is seeing Annie in the theater with my mother, aunt, and cousin. I recall being thoroughly drawn in as everyone's favorite redhead clings to Punjab for dear life toward the climax of the film. I also have a vivid recollection of viewing Pinocchio when it was re-released in the early 1980s. I guess that makes me one of your elder readers.
Aw, we have readers of all ages. It's just the younger readers seem way less shy. When did you start reading Tfe?

Were you among the tiny group who checked out "Do No Harm" before NBC yanked it after just two episodes due to its abysmal ratings? Or maybe you're curious as to exactly how bad it was. Well, you'll all have a chance to watch the remaining eps beginning June 29th.
Per The Futon Critic, NBC will burn off its short-lived drama "Do No Harm" on Saturday nights at 10:00/9:00c commencing on the aforementioned date. We're not sure how many episodes there are exactly, but we should have confirmation from the network shortly as it starts rolling out its summer schedule.
In “Do No Harm,” Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale, "Rescue Me") is a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all – a lucrative career, confident charm, the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked »

Is it the makeup? Is it the lighting? Both? This new poster for Ron Howard's Rush featuring Chris Hemsworth (Thor: The Dark World, The Avengers) as F-1 driver James Hunt is damned impressive based on appearances alone. Certainly the poster is rather generic, but that aside I like what I'm seeing. Along with Hemsworth, the film co-stars Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey, Pierfrancesco Favino and Natalie Dormer. I've included the studio-provided synopsis below the poster. Two-time Academy Award winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind,” “Frost/Nixon”), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (“Frost/Nixon,” “The Queen”), on “Rush,” a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (“The Avengers”) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (“Inglourious Basterds”) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals »

The year, make, and model were quite different but Rush filmmaker Ron Howard has felt the rumbling power of iconic cars when it comes to engines of cinema and symbolism. It was 40 years ago this summer that one of the ultimate automobile movies, American Graffiti, rumbled into box office history and steered Howard toward television and Happy Days.
Howard is a two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker and with Rush (featured in the first-look poster above with star Chris Hemsworth) and its fact-based tale of Formula One racing rivalry in 1976 he found himself feeling like he was covering some familiar road — but it »

This is going to sound really nit-picky and like I'm just looking for problems, but in the background of this first look at Jamie Foxx as Matt Dillon (aka Electro) in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is what appears to be that process we have seen so many villains in so many movie do. Where they create some massive wall of newspaper clippings and what not and use string/yarn and push pins to put it all together. The only time that has ever worked for me in movies or television is when I was about ten-years-old and in A Beautiful Mind. Otherwise, it's just a tired device we've seen countless times before so we don't really get any measure of shock value out of it. All it says about the character is that he's seen people in movies do it before... it's sort of like how if you see a »

• Morgan Freeman is finding his way back to the world of Christopher Nolan. No, the Dark Knight director hasn’t signed Freeman onto his highly anticipated next original project. (Though Anne Hathaway might make the leap to sci-fi for that film, Interstellar.) Freeman is in final negotiations to star in the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, Nolan’s longtime cinematographer. Nolan is producing the film, called Transcendence. Plot details are being kept under wraps for the sci-fi film, but it’s been described as in the vein of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Inception.
