Don Winslow plus Michael Mann equals a whole lot of hell, yeah

22 March 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Things are changing right now, and the people who are going to thrive are the ones who are wiling to embrace that change instead of railing against it. If you’re a storyteller, you’re going to go where you have the most freedom to tell stories. When I look at a deal like the one Netflix made for Bright, the film that David Ayer will direct from a script by Max Landis, I see a shift that is going to change where we see certain types of things. My whole life, my focus has been on movies and the theatrical experience, and that may be changing, and not because of any decision I’ve made. The industry has simply evolved in a certain direction, and if I want to watch certain kinds of storytelling, that is more often than not going to be at home now instead of the theater. »

Hannibal: online piracy blamed for the show’s cancellation

With Hannibal dropped by NBC and no-one else swooping in to save the show, the finger of blame is being pointed at pirates…

As the months pass and Bryan Fuller moves on to new projects like Star Trek and American Gods, it’s looking increasingly less likely that Hannibal will get a season 4 any time soon. And now, the show’s executive producer Martha De Laurentiis has explained a little about why Hannibal was chopped from NBC’s schedule, which doesn’t sound too promising for the show’s future.

“When nearly one-third of your audience for Hannibal is coming from pirated sites… You don’t have to know calculus to do the math”, De Laurentiis told Yahoo. “If a show is stolen, it makes it difficult, if not impossible, to fairly compensate a crew and keep a series in production.”

By that logic, online piracy is »

The Best Picture Oscar winners that had sequels

More Best Picture Oscar winners have had sequels than you may think. This lot, in fact...

There’s still an element of snobbery where sequels to certain films is concerned. Whereas it’s now almost compulsory to greenlight a blockbuster with a view of a franchise in mind, it’s hard to think of most Best Picture Oscar winners being made with a follow-up in mind. Yet in perhaps a surprising number of cases, a sequel – or in the case of Rocky, lots of sequels – have followed.

These cases, in fact…

All Quiet On The Western Front (1930)

Followed by: The Road Back

Don’t be fooled into thinking sequels for prestigious movies are a relatively new phenomenon. Lewis Milestone’s 1930 war epic All Quiet On The Western Front, and its brutal account of World War I, is still regarded as something of a classic. A solid box office success, »

Who Silence Of The Lambs Almost Cast As Hannibal Lecter

17 February 2016 1:25 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s impossible to picture anyone other than Sir Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs. Just try. You can.t. But, that was almost the case. Because Gene Hackman was originally so interested in playing Hannibal Lecter, that he not only bought the rights to Thomas Harris. novel, but he wanted to direct the film, as well. Gene Hackman was one of the only individuals in Hollywood interested in buying The Silence Of The Lambs because Manhunter, the Michael Mann adaptation of Harris. original book, Red Dragon, which had Brian Cox in the lead role, had been a financial flop. However, after instigating its development, and while screenwriter Ted Tally was working on the first draft of his script for The Silence Of The Lambs, Gene Hackman randomly dropped out of production for one of the most doting reasons you.re ever likely to hear: »

You never know what's going to happen with an audition," actor Ted Levine remembers of the first time he portrayed Jame Gumb, The Silence of the Lambs villain also known as "Buffalo Bill." "I just pulled something out. It was scary. It felt kind of magical."

'The Silence of the Lambs': 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Serial Killer Classic

12 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to think of a movie less suitable for Valentine's Day than "The Silence of the Lambs."

Yet that's the day the unforgettable thriller debuted 25 years ago, on February 14, 1991. The creepy, gory adaptation of Thomas Harris's bestseller was an enormous hit, made an enduring pop culture figure of sophisticated flesh-eater Hannibal Lecter, transformed Anthony Hopkins into a star, and became only the third (and so far, the last) movie to win the top five Oscars -- Best Picture, Director, Actress, Actor, and Screenplay.

As many times as you've seen Hopkins's Lecter casually mention how well human liver goes with fava beans and a nice Chianti, there's still much you may not know about "Silence." Quid pro quo -- we'll reveal the movie's secrets, if you read on.

Even Anthony Hopkins Thinks It Was A Mistake To Reprise Hannibal Lecter

8 January 2016 3:46 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sir Anthony Hopkins’ performance as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence Of The Lambs is seen as one of the finest of the last 30 years. That’s why he picked up the Best Actor Academy Award for his work. However, when he returned as the character for Hannibal and Red Dragon, the reaction was less impressive. And now the Welsh actor admitted he shouldn’t have reprised the role.  Anthony Hopkins made this admission to The Wrap, confessing that because of the mixed response to both 2001’s Hannibal and 2002’s Red Dragon he no longer has any interest in playing the character. He said: I did it once. Made the mistake of doing it twice – three times. The Silence Of The Lambs is okay. It was a good film. When Sir Antony Hopkins was pushed for an answer on whether he’d »

Anthony Hopkins won an Academy Award for playing Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” but he wishes he hadn’t portrayed the killer again in “Hannibal” and “Red Dragon.” “I did it once,” Hopkins told TheWrap of his iconic role. “Made the mistake of doing it twice — three times. ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ is okay. It was a good film.” Asked whether he would ever play Lecter again, Hopkins said simply, “No.” When asked why not, he expressed his regret at having made 2001 sequel, “Hannibal,” and 2002 prequel, “Red Dragon.” Also Read: Why Starz Doesn't Want Its Own. »

20 Best TV Series of 2015

31 December 2015 7:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2015 saw the start (or at least official dubbing) of #PeakTV, a recognition of the wealth of excellent television available to fans of the medium. This is reflected in PopOptiq’s staff list for the year: While our site-wide list separated neatly into a consensus just-over Top 20, 50 separate series received votes. Series from each of the networks and a wide range of cable channels and streaming services were nominated, showing just how wide an array of viewing options are available, and the variety of topic, tone, and theme of the series comprising the list is truly refreshing. 2015 is the year the glut of quality television threatened to overwhelm even the biggest TV fans. Here are the 20+ that stood out to our staff.
