'The Bastard Executioner': First Look at 'Sons of Anarchy' Creator's New Show

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kurt Sutter's beloved drama series Sons of Anarchy came to an end last fall, but fans won't have to wait too long for the writer/producer's next series, The Bastard Executioner. Following the first trailer's debut earlier this month, FX has released four brief trailers for the medieval series, which tease a beheading, a rebellion, one warrior's vision of the past and the similarities between a cross and a sword. The trailers reveal a September debut for the upcoming series, but an exact premiere date has not been announced yet.

The Bastard Executioner is a blood-soaked, medieval epic that tells the story of Wilkin Brattle Lee Jones), a 14th century warrior, whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of another man: a journeyman executioner. Set in northern Wales during a time rife with rebellion and political upheaval, »

7 Reasons For A New WWE Four Horsemen

11 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

The timing is right for WWE to bring back stable with a familiar name: The Four Horsemen. The name is synonymous with one of the most famous groups in the history of wrestling, right up there with the New World Order and D-Generation X.

What’s interesting about the Four Horsemen is that they were only in WCW and once WWE bought the company in 2001, they never created a stable with the Horsemen name. Why not now?

The closest stable in the history of WWE that was like the Four Horsemen was the Evolution foursome of Triple H, Randy Orton, Batista and original Horseman Ric Flair. Just like the Horsemen did at various points in their run, the Evolution group held all the titles at the same time to show how dominant they were.

When WWE brought up The Shield in 2012, they were booked so strong as a group, »

Syfy and Universal team up for grindhouse show ‘Blood Drive’

29 July 2015 6:16 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Syfy and Universal have today announced they have greenlit Blood Drive, a high-octane, over-the-top scripted series in the classic grindhouse movie tradition. Set in a near-apocalyptic future, the 13-episode series centers around La’s last good cop who is forced to join a twisted, gory cross-country death race – with cars powered by blood (Blood Car anyone?) and a dangerous femme fatale partner who sees people as fuel. Sounds a lot like Blood Drive the video game (pictured above) – but apparently this is no relation.

Blood Drive is from executive producers John Hlavin (Underworld: Awakening, The Shield) and David Straiton (Bates Motel, Hemlock Grove), who will also direct. Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller:

This highly stylized roller coaster ride is a throwback to 1970s grindhouse cinema. With its fast-paced thrills and indie feel, Blood Drive will make an exciting and edgy addition to Syfy’s growing slate of original scripted series. »

Southpaw review: Jake Gyllenhaal bulks up for a heavyweight performance

24 July 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Antoine Fuqua; Screenwriter: Kurt Sutter; Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Oona Laurence, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Rita Ora; Running time: 124 mins; Certificate: 15

Jake Gyllenhaal brings considerable heft to a boxing drama that's a little soft in places and stuffed full of the usual clichés by director Antoine Fuqua (who has yet to match his 2001 hit Training Day). Even the fighter's name, Billy Hope, is a little too on-the-nose in trying to push a credo about resilience in the face of adversity. The star, who packed on the pounds for this role, shoulders the burden with grace.

Hope is, without a shadow of a doubt, a good guy, although he is an animal when his blood is up - a Beast, as described by the lyrics of the rap track he listens to before a big fight. True to the hip-hop culture (Eminem was once attached to star and contributes one track, »

Review: 'Mr. Robot' plots a heist, but can Elliot pull it off?

22 July 2015 8:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I really liked "Mr. Robot" when it debuted, and I'm going to work it into the weekly blog rotation for the rest of this season (give or take interruptions for press tour and late summer vacation). Some thoughts on tonight's episode coming up just as soon as this building has its own fire department... Like I did the last time I wrote about "Mr. Robot," I'm going to bounce around on different topics that interested me with this episode: * This week, in "Is Mr. Robot really Elliot's Tyler Durden?" (aka — and all credit to TV.com for this moniker — "Byte Club"): many mixed signals as to Mr. Robot's reality. At the coffee shop, for instance, another fsociety member nods to him, and he goes to steal the ID of a Steel Mountain employee, but Elliot is doing nothing in that moment, and that could be read as him. »

Michael Chiklis Joins Gotham As Series Regular

22 July 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gotham is adding yet another tough-as-nails member to the Gcpd, and this time they’ve called in the big guns. According to TVLine, the Batman prequel show has recruited The Shield alum Michael Chiklis, who will take on the role of the new captain of the Gotham City Police Department as a series regular.

Chiklis will not be taking on the role of a DC Comics character, but will instead play Nathaniel Barnes, who has been created solely for the series. Judging by the character description, it won’t take long for the infamous city to corrupt him, either:

Barnes lands on the Gcpd like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. »

22 July 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Michael Chiklis is picking up his badge and becoming a cop again, but this character sounds quite a bit different than Vic Mackey. Gotham has recruited the Emmy-winning The Shield star to play Captain Nathaniel Barnes, a new, full-fledged series regular role in Season 2 of the Fox drama. TVLine broke the exclusive casting news late last night. According to TVLine, Chiklis’ Barnes “’lands on the Gcpd like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism.

"The Shield" and "American Horror Story: Freak Show" actor Michael Chiklis has joined the cast of Fox's "Gotham" series.

'Gotham' Season 2 Gets Michael Chiklis

22 July 2015 1:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox's hit series Gotham has added a new series regular for Season 2, with actor Michael Chiklis signing on to play Captain Nathanial Barnes. The actor is certainly no stranger to playing a law enforcement officer, starring as Detective Vic Mackey in FX's cop drama The Shield for seven seasons. Unlike Vic Mackey, though, his new character Nathanial Barnes is certainly not a crooked cop, as he attempts to clean up the Gotham City Police Department. Here's what the show's producers told TV Line about Nathanial Barnes.

"(He) lands on the Gcpd like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham's police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies - on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon. »

Gotham season 2: Michael Chiklis joins cast as Gcpd captain

22 July 2015 1:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Chiklis – two-time Ben Grimm, and star of The Shield – has joined Gotham as a mentor to Jim Gordon…

Just a little Gotham update here, but one that gives us a few clues about the new season. Michael Chiklis (perhaps best known to our readers as Ben Grimm from the 2005 and 2007 Fantastic Four movies) has signed up for a role in the show.

Chiklis – who’s also appeared in American Horror Story, The Shield, Sons Of Anarchy, Vegas and No Ordinary Family – will play the Gcpd’s Captain Barnes, described as ‘a hero and a mentor for Ben McKenzie’s Jim Gordon’.

We’re told that Barnes "lands on the Gcpd like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham's police force. He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies -- on either side of the law. For Gordon, Barnes is a hero and a mentor, »

Chiklis gets ‘Gotham’ed

21 July 2015 10:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Former star of The Shield Michael Chiklis is taking up the badge of justice again, this time for Fox/DC’s Gotham. He’s set to shake up the gargoyle-laden metropolis as Captain Nathaniel Barnes.

According to producers, Barnes is a hard-headed stickler for the rule of law who’ll cause headaches for gangsters and colleagues alike, as well as forming an alliance with Ben McKenzie‘s proto-Commissioner Jim Gordon. However, this being Gotham City, friends can often become enemies at the flip of Two-Face’s coin!

Season Two sees Cameron Monaghan‘s fledgling Joker become a key part of the action, so it looks like the beleaguered police force are really going to have their work cut out.

In addition to his dirty duties as a TV lawman, Chiklis is well-known in comic book circles for his role as The Thing in the studio’s short-lived Fantastic Four movie franchise. »

My Left Fist: Fuqua’s Sports Drama a Familiar, Emotionally Charged Comeback

After another recent dalliance in action genre schlock, director Antoine Fuqua returns with the type of cinema he does best—gritty, explosively violent dramatics carried on the weight of strong central characters portrayed persuasively by notable performers. Though this condensed, streamlined character study eschews typical grandiose third act fireworks, and a refreshing lack of a rushed romantic entanglement, its protagonist’s challenges often feel easily overcome. This enhances the narrative’s predictability and familiarity, even though it’s emotionally potent and well-written. Television scribe Kurt Sutter of “The Shield” and “Sons of Anarchy” proves to be as equally adept in his stellar concoction of provocative central characters. However, a handful of supporting figurers played by notable actors are barely introduced, as if they’re promised tangents that would’ve been returned to in longer form narrative.

'Ant-Man' Interview with Michael Pena | Exclusive

16 July 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Michael Pena is an actor whose career I've been intently following for the past 10 years. After popping up in small but impressive roles in back-to-back Best Picture winners Million Dollar Baby and Crash, and in a wonderful arc on my favorite TV show ever, The Shield, the actor started coming into his own with solid supporting roles in Shooter, Lions for Lambs, Observe and Report and American Hustle. After his fantastic scene-stealing performance in Marvel's Ant-Man (check out my full Ant-Man review), the actor is primed for a huge career leap.

The actor portrays Luis, a longtime friend and criminal cohort of Scott Lang, who gives him a place to crash after his release from prison. Luis also sets up the heist that essentially introduces him to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), setting him on a path to become the Ant-Man. When Scott is tasked with pulling off an improbable heist, »
