Another image from The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer

24 December 2014 6:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We got our first official still from Guy Ritchie’s big screen take on the classic spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E. earlier this week [see here], and now we have another image from the film featuring the two leads Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger)…

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on U.N.C.L.E. agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin. The two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe. »

Jason Schwartzman & Roman Coppola’s New Series ‘Mozart in the Jungle’ Debuts Today

22 December 2014 12:56 PM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

The much-anticipated dramatic comedy series Mozart in the Jungle has finally arrived — unveiling all ten episodes on Amazon Prime today.

Already landing on New York Times’ TV critic Mike Hale’s “10 Best TV Shows of 2014” list, Mozart will take you behind the scenes of the New York Symphony, where artistic dedication collides with politics, romance and survival instincts.

Gael Garcia Bernal (Rosewater) stars as the brilliant and rash new maestro hired to shake up the symphony and make it relevant to a new generation, leading a cast of co-stars that include Saffron Burrows (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Hannah Dunne (Frances Ha), Lola Kirke (Gone Girl), Malcolm McDowell (The Mentalist) and Peter Vack (I Just Want My Pants Back).

Roman Coppola teamed up with Jason Schwartzman to bring the series to life, adapting the racy 2005 memoir of former New York Symphony musician Blair Tindall. “When Jason first brought me the book, Mozart in the Jungle, »

Five Films You Can Sneak In At Christmas

20 December 2014 2:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with five films you can sneak in at Christmas…

Hurrah! The holidays are upon us! The snow is (not) falling and the mulled wine is (expensively) available! What a joyous time! Ring the bells! Set time aside and join in the age-old tradition of Christmas film-watching around the toasty fire. Of course your niece will recommend Frozen and your sibling, harking back to your shared childhood, will select Home Alone, but surely Flickering Myth readers of the world can choose something a little more niche. Something that not only reflects our sense of Christmas cheer but something that will share our film intellect. No need for Scrooged, The Muppets Christmas Carol or It’s a Wonderful Life – here is a yuletide selection of alternative Christmas films that add a little class to the annual viewing…

Broadcast ratings update: What's a hit, what's not

17 December 2014 9:49 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Big picture first: Fall was lousy for broadcast. Not one of the five major networks posted ratings gains, and three declined from last year (chart below). NBC ranked first once again, but the network was down 9 percent overall among adults 18-49. CBS was down 7 percent. And Fox dropped a wince-inducing 16 percent. (Slotting three hours of Utopia didn't help.) Only ABC and The CW managed to break even, with The CW also posting a 10 percent gain among total viewers. Among individual shows, returning hits like CBS' Big Bang Theory, ABC's Scandal and Modern Family, and NBC's The Blacklist and The Voice continued to top the chart. »

TV Review: Amazon’s ‘Mozart in the Jungle’

17 December 2014 7:32 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Buoyed by superb casting and an organic setting for flamboyant, larger-than-life characters, “Mozart in the Jungle” may not qualify as a masterpiece, but it falls squarely into the pleasant-addition-to-the-neighborhood category in Amazon’s impressive package of original series. Indeed, on a conventional network, this half-hour show – whose producers include Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman – would feel like the perfect lead-out to “Alpha House,” the streamer’s D.C.-set comedy, which also provides a satirical window onto a world of money, power and egos that operates by its own arcane set of rules.

In what feels like a particular coup, “Mozart’s” ensemble features Gael Garcia Bernal as the new conductor of the New York Symphony, taking the baton from his imperious predecessor, Thomas, played with appropriate swagger by Malcolm McDowell. Bernal’s maestro Rodrigo is the sort who can get by with one name, Cher-like, while bringing a rock-n-roll »

Watch: More Magic in International Trailer for Disney's 'Cinderella'

16 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Where there is kindness, there is goodness, and where there is goodness, there is magic." We've already seen pretty much the entire retelling of Cinderella in the most recent full trailer for the new live-action adaptation from Disney and director Kenneth Branagh, but a new international trailer mixes things up with a whole new edit. Unfortunately, this trailer also shows off the greatest hits of the fairytale everybody knows, so it doesn't leave much to the imagination. However, I will say that the sets and costumes are positively gorgeous, and there's likely some technical Oscar love coming for this film eventually. Watch it! Here's the new international trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella from Disney Nz: You can still watch the most recent Us theatrical trailer for Cinderella right here. Cinderella is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and written by Aline Brosh McKenna (Annie, The Devil Wears Prada »

What's going on with Team Ico's The Last Guardian?

16 December 2014 3:01 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now reaching the eight year mark, there's still no sign of The Last Guardian. Ryan takes a look at its current status...

Ah, 2009. The year Barack Obama was inaugurated as president, and the year Avatar dominated the box-office. It was also the year when Sony officially announced The Last Guardian - designer and director Fumito Ueda's follow-up to Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus.

For many who played them, Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus were little short of unforgettable. Ico was a platform-puzzler which took place in a lonely, echoing citadel, where a young boy guided a spectral girl through a maze of trapped rooms and corridors. Shadow Of The Colossus was even more ambitious, with its mysterious giants pushing the hardware capabilities of the PlayStation 2 to their limits.

Neither game was a huge financial success, but both have had a huge impact on the industry. Various "are games art? »

NBC Sets Midseason Schedule, ‘Marry Me,’ ‘About a Boy’ Benched

12 December 2014 12:46 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC is making a dramatic change to its midseason schedule. The net will launch a Thursday drama block, with “The Blacklist” anchoring the night in its new 9 p.m. slot beginning on Feb. 5, after an airing following the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.

“The Blacklist” will serve as a lead-in for new spy drama “Allegiance,” which will air at 10 p.m. starting on Feb. 5, with eight-episode event series “The Slap” taking the 8 p.m. slot beginning Feb. 12.

The Night Shift,” which originally aired on last summer’s schedule, will return to NBC on Monday, Feb. 23, following the season premiere of “The Voice.”

“The Super Bowl gives us a great opportunity on a promotional level to reset the table for midseason,” said NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt. “‘The Blacklist,’ which will premiere with a new episode on Super Bowl Sunday and then move to Thursday nights later that week, is a big priority. »

'The Night Shift,' 'The Blacklist' & 'Undateable' lead NBC mid-season schedule

12 December 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's semi-successful summer lineup has now become a core part of its winter/spring schedule, with "The Night Shift" and "Undateable" joining a crowded mid-season roster that will include "Allegiance," "The Slap," "A.D.," the return of "The Blacklist," and more. Earlier this month, NBC announced the first part of its mid-season plan with the compressed final season of "Parks and Recreation,"(*) which will be concluding before half of NBC's other mid-season shows even get to premiere. This is the same "drama-heavy mid-season schedule" that was the reason NBC opted to sell Tina Fey's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" to Netflix, rather than try to squeeze it in here. Not counting "Parks" (which, again, NBC considers old business being dealt with as quickly as possible), the network will bring eight shows off the bench in February, March and April, and all but two ("Undateable" and the new "One Big Happy") are dramatic. »

NBC Sets Midseason Dates for Night Shift, Allegiance, Undateable and More

12 December 2014 12:02 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

NBC’s midseason plan features a mix of shows familiar and new.

The Peacock network has announced that two of its summertime sleeper successes, the hospital drama The Night Shift and the relationship comedy Undateable, will return at midseason.

Specifically, Night Shift will open Season 2 on Monday, Feb. 23 at 10/9c (leading out of The Voice’s two-hour Season 8 opener), while Undateable’s sophomore run will air Tuesdays at 9 pm, starting March 17. (Both shows’ first seasons ran May to July.)

NBC’s other midseason moves include:

* Allegiance, a contemporary espionage-at-home drama in the vein of The Americans — about a young CIA »

The CW’s Supernatural on Tuesday night scared up 2.62 million total viewers — rising 13 percent week-to-week to its largest audience since January (per finals) — and a 1.0 demo rating, up one tenth.

Tuesday Ratings: ‘Victoria’s Secret,’ ‘Rudolph’ Guide CBS to Victory

10 December 2014 9:09 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS decisively beat its rivals in key demos on Tuesday behind its annual airings of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” while ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” joined CW’s dramas and Fox’s comedies in wrapping fall on the high end of their ratings ranges.

Ratings will be released later Wednesday for FX’s “Sons of Anarchy,” which is expected to challenge as the night’s top show in some categories.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” averaged a timeslot-leading 2.8 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 while drawing 10.7 million viewers overall — down a bit in the demo from its year-ago telecast, though last year it didn’t have to face NBC’s “The Voice” or a competing holiday special on ABC (“Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”). Head-to-head, it beat “The Voice” in 18-49 (2.8 vs. 2.2) and 25-54 (3.9 vs. »

TV Ratings: 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,' Victoria's Secret lead Tuesday

10 December 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, December 9, 2014. CBS' odd couple pairing of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show proved effective, pushing the network to victory both overall and among young viewers. After last week's bump, NBC's "The Voice," "Marry Me" and "About a Boy" were all down, while the network also got weak numbers for its hour-long commercial for Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken." There was better news, though, on Fox, where "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" were both up and also on The CW, where "The Flash" held onto last week's "Arrow" crossover gains. And for "Supernatural," it was the most watched episode in four years, since October 2010. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.6 rating for Tuesday night, far ahead of the 1.4 rating for both NBC and Fox in the key demographic. ABC and The CW tied for fourth with a 1.3 key demo rating. »

Homeland Recap: The Return of 'The Guy Who Kills Bad Guys'

7 December 2014 8:34 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on Showtime’s Homeland, with the embassy under siege, Peter Quinn swung into action, near-Die Hard-style, while Carrie and Saul’s ride back from the hostage exchange continued to be wild.

With Martha having realized that the embassy is being infiltrated by Haqqani and his men, Quinn quickly tries to recall some the Marines who had been sent to the site of the attack on Carrie and Saul’s caravan. But until then, it’s him and a couple of Marines versus about a dozen baddies.

Meanwhile, Carrie and Saul survived the bombing, though others weren’t as lucky. »
