There's going to be plenty of crime-drama action this winter. The second season of Steven Seagal’s original series True Justice will premiere Friday, January 4, 2013 at 9pm Et/ 6pm Pt and 11pm Et/ 8pm Pt. Season two begins with Elijah Kane’s (Steven Seagal) Special Investigations Unit facing the aftermath of an intense gun battle — one that leaves the fate of Kane’s entire team in jeopardy. The second season features 13 new heart-pounding episodes premiering Fridays at 9pm Et/ 6pm Pt and again at 11pm Et/ 8pm Pt.
Joining the action in season two are a few new faces, including CIA operative Marcus Mitchell, played by Adrian Holmes (Elysium, Red Riding Hood), who recruits Kane to work as an operative to take out a high-level target that the CIA cannot go after in the traditional way. Mitchell helps to lead Kane into the target’s inner circle, but only then »

Here is the synopsis:
On his 18th birthday, Johnny Petrie learns he was adopted when he inherits a farm in Maine, abandoned for the 18 years since his natural family died at the hands of his father, the local preacher. Eager for a new life, he leaves home to start over in his new dwelling. However, as he digs into his past, he soon uncovers the horrifying details of his father’s questionable teachings. In a frightening revelation, he also learns that his return has revived decades-old forces trapped in the home and sets in motion a heart-stopping finale to a ritual that already claimed the lives of his family. »
There are no fools working at Chiller's offices. Nary a one. They all know if you want to generate interest for your original feature films, you need big name actors. And who's better to fill that role than the legendary Bill Moseley?
He recently sat down and discussed his upcoming role in the Chiller original film, Dead Souls.
Dead Souls airs Friday, October 12th at 9:00 p.m. on Chiller. Check out Chillertv.com for more info.
Moseley talked about what drew him to the film. "Dead Souls is cool because it's one of the things that I love to do and don’t really do very much of and that is supernatural films," Moseley said. "The book by Michael Laimo and John Doolan’s script were very, very cool. It’s a supernatural thriller, it’s a whodunit in a way but there certainly are horrific elements. The farm »

About Dead Souls:
For his 18th birthday Johnny Petrie is presented with some surprising news: Not only was he adopted, but he has inherited his birth family’s farm in Maine, abandoned for the past 18 years since his natural family died at the hands of his father, the local preacher. Eager for a new life, he leaves home to start over in his new dwelling. However, as he digs into his past, he soon uncovers the horrifying details of his father’s questionable studies. In a frightening revelation he also learns that his return has revived decades-old forces trapped in the home and sets in motion a heart-stopping finale to a ritual that already claimed the lives of his family. »

Fall is a hopeful time for TV viewers. Every new show is an unknown, save for a handful of promos and publicity photos and we're waiting to find out if the show lives up to the promise of a great idea or... withers away to inspire case studies of failure analysis.
There are few obvious trends this year. The New Normal and Partners both feature a gay couple among its lead characters while Arrow and 666 Park Avenue try to capture the Occupy Wall Street zeitgeist that helped make Revenge a hit. But overall, this fall lacks the "me too" quality that so often characterizes a TV season.
The one trend that does stand out this season are strong ideas that don't quite meet their potential in the pilot. Vegas, Last Resort, 666 Park Avenue and The Mindy Project are some of the pilots that left critics hoping that later episodes fix the rough spots. »
The Butterfly Effect is one of the latest movies to get the high-definition treatment from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. It was available as a Canadian import as far back as 2009 but now it comes directly from the U.S. This new Blu-ray version comes with both the Director's Cut and the theatrical version. It also has an impressive amount of special features included.
Evan Treborn (Ashton Kutcher) suffered from blackouts and memory loss most of his childhood. He keeps a diary of the events so he can read them later and remember what he did. After heading off to college, he begins to have the blackouts again. Evan soon realizes he has the ability to alter reality through time-travel.
Directors / writers Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber created quite a thought-provoking and suspenseful movie here. It makes you think about your actions in life and the sort of repercussions they have on those around us. »

The Butterfly Effect might very well be one of the most under-rated science fictions of the past decade. Directors Eric Bress & J. Mackye Gruber may have never recovered from the critical back-lashing the film received upon release in 2004, but I for one think they may have made a rare original film in a sea that’s over-populated now with remakes and re-imaginings. The Butterfly Effect is a dark and depressing time travel story that deals with fate and how changing one thing might lead to changing everything. Topping off the already good movie is the Director’s Cut of the film, which includes one of the most anti-Hollywood endings I’ve ever seen. It’s a little over-the-top and silly, but it’s one of the most depressing and unflinching endings I’ve yet to see in mainstream release.
Evan (Ashton Kutcher) has never been able to live a normal life. »

The Butterfly Effect: Director’s Cut (2004) Ah, time travel. Tricky business, that. Anyone who has ever traveled back in time can tell you that it’s more trouble than it’s worth. Or, er, seen movies about time travel, since I doubt there’s a whole lot of real time travelers out there. (If you are one, can you contact me? There are a couple of things in my past I’d like to, ahem, fix.) But hey, I love me some good time travelin’ stories, which makes the “Butterfly Effect” franchise right up my alley. The series began in 2004 with the feature film “The Butterfly Effect”, which went on to spawn two direct-to-sequels (as of this review), though we will only be looking at the first two entries in the franchise today. (Mostly because I didn’t get a copy of part 3, natch.) 2004′s “The Butterfly Effect” stars Ashton Kutcher, »
• Jason Bateman is in talks to star in and make his feature directing debut with the indie comedy Bad Words, about an unhappy adult who games the system to enter a national children’s spelling bee. First-time screenwriter Andrew Dodge penned the script, which was on the 2011 Black List. [Variety]
• Channing Tatum is in talks to produce and star in an untitled biopic about famed daredevil Evel Knievel. Tatum’s producing partner Reid Carolin (Magic Mike) penned the script, based on the Stuart Barker book Life of Evel. No director is attached. [THR]

The actor was spotted on the first day of production, sporting a beard and long hair, and looking acceptably similar to the Apple founder, who died last year.
Kutcher was on set at the entrepeneur's childhood home, for the shooting of Jobs, due for release next year. He could be seen filming scenes in the garage, where the real-life Jobs was known to have started building computers.
Kutcher has appeared in a string of films - including The Butterfly Effect, No Strings Attached and Valentine's Day - as well as a generally favourably received role in Two and a Half Men, but has become as famous for his off-screen life, with a high-profile split from actress Demi Moore last year. »

Recently Dread Central was lucky enough to travel to the quiet town of Canterbury, Connecticut, to visit the set of the upcoming Chiller original production Dead Souls. The film, scheduled to hit the television airwaves in October, was directed by Colin Theys and boasts the one and only Bill Moseley amongst the impressive cast.
Upon arriving at the set, one thing was abundantly clear: The production team that sought to find a location to be used as a haunted house was incredibly effective. The abandoned farmhouse used in Dead Souls was incredibly creepy. Add to that the fact that a scraggly bearded Bill Moseley was sitting on a rock outside the barn as you walked up the driveway, and the creep factor of this place goes through the roof!
Moseley spoke on working with the Dead Souls cast and crew. "They really know their stuff," Moseley said. "I think Colin [Theys] is a really cool director. »

Smart and the Pretty Woman star, along with her husband Danny Moder, were feted by fellow eco activists, including actors Peter Fonda and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, at Heal the Bay's annual Bring Back the Beach gala on Friday.
Together the crowd raised funds to help promote awareness about protecting the marine animals of Santa Monica Bay home, and The Butterfly Effect beauty Smart was thrilled to be recognised for her years of hard work.
She tells local publication Los Angeles Confidential, "I'm extremely grateful and honoured. I highly respect and love Heal the Bay; their work is so effective, far-reaching, and impactful on the ocean. Growing up in Topanga Canyon (in California), being in the mountains and surrounded by nature inspired me.
"My parents always loved nature, and that inspired my brother and me. Growing up I was always aware of the environment (through) beach clean-ups, hikes, and bike rides in the canyon. Right out of high school I wanted to get involved and saw Heal the Bay posters around. That was my first venture into environmental work when I was 18." »
Craig Dietz doesn't like Ashton Kutcher for the role of the late Steve Jobs in the Apple creator's independent biopic, which I think is a fair criticism. I'm not necessarily a fan of his work either, other than The Butterfly Effect. Now after months of speculation, Jobs' friend Social Network writer Aaron Sorkin will adapt Walter Isaacson's best-selling Jobs biography into a rival movie for Sony, which the studio announced in a press release last night. »

Kutcher, who bears some resemblance to the young Jobs, has been cast in a version by Swing Vote's Joshua Michael Stern, which will chronicle the entrepreneur's journey from "wayward hippie" to co-founder of the iconic technology firm, "where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time".
"I had the idea the day Jobs retired and I notice several It and art directors at my company all in a buzz," producer Mark Hulme of Five Star Insitute told TheWrap. "I was observing that day how distractive his retirement was to the marketplace and I knew in my heart that his story was »

The recent sad death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had seen talk of a biopic of his legendary career being rumoured for the big-screen. Well that rumour appeared to be a reality when Sony confirmed they would be financing the project. The Social Network and Moneyball scribe Aaron Sorkin was also rumoured to be on scripting duties on the story that will tell of Jobs’ rise from 1960s hippie to high-tech hero, whose innovations made him a billionaire businessman.
News has come today that, Joshua Michael Stern is also set to write and direct an independent feature film based on Jobs’ life. Ashton Kutcher has also been confirmed as the film’s lead. Stern’s most high profile effort was the likeable 2008 Kevin Costner comic-drama Swing Vote.

Well this is... unexpected, though the resemblance is rather uncanny. Ashton Kutcher has briefly dabbled in the dramatic during the course of his career (The Butterfly Effect and Bobby being all that comes to mind, and that's a stretch), but perhaps an indie film about "Jobs' meteoric rise from Northern California hippie to co-founder of Apple" is the perfect project with which to begin a career shift. If he wants one, that is, since he seems to be doing »

Presumably because a young Steve Jobs looks mildly similar to Ashton Kutcher in this one picture, Kutcher will play Jobs in an upcoming indie biopic. The film, Jobs, begins shooting next month, when Kutcher's Two and a Half Men hiatus begins, Variety reports. (Followed by a Variety reporter's insistent tweet, that no, this isn't an April Fool's gag.) Don't get Jobs confused with Sony's forthcoming joint based on Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs bio. Also be wary of mistaking Kutcher for a dramatic actor, no matter how many times people say "but, The Butterfly Effect!" and "but, Bobby!" and "but, Ashton's going into space!" »
