Once upon a time, most movie theaters showed more than a single feature. For the price of your ticket, you’d get two movies, maybe a cartoon, sometimes a featurette. You got good value for your money in those days especially at second or third run theaters or revival houses. This was in the days before DVD, Blu-Ray, or even VHS.
In fact, for a long time, the movie studios only got one bite of the apple. Oh, a few movies might show up again; Disney did a good job of bringing classics out of their vaults. When the movies were sold to show on TV, that would also generate some revenue but nothing like today when a major part of the money made by films comes from Blu-Ray and DVD sales. (Aside: I wonder how true that will remain with Netflix and Hulu, et al.)

Though she was never seen on camera, The Big Bang Theory‘s Mrs. Wolowitz has arguably played as big a role on the show as Leonard, Sheldon and Penny.
Often the butt of obesity jokes — usually made, in poor taste, by son Howard — and prone to getting a little too overprotective of her only child, Mrs. Wolowitz has been recognizable to fans of the CBS comedy through only her voice, as she shouted to Howard from other rooms of her house.
Sadly, that powerful voice was silenced last November after Carol Ann Susi — the actress who portrayed Mrs. Wolowitz — lost »
Deadpool: Morena Baccarin will star in the female lead role opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool. The actress has built geek credibility through a series of appearances in everything from Firefly to The Flash and Gotham, not to mention voice work in Justice League and Son of Batman, plus dramatic roles in shows like Homeland (above). The Deadpool supporting cast includes T.J. Miller and Gina Carano; the movie is set for release on February 12, 2016. [Heat Vision] The Last Witch Hunter: Vin Diesel is featured in the latest image from The Last Witch Hunter, looking quite pensive. Diesel plays the titular character, who must partner with a witch (Rose Leslie) to defeat a common foe. Elijah Wood and Michael Caine also star; look for it in theaters on October 23. [Coming...

Take a director who didn't speak English, a studio desperate to resuscitate one of its most profitable franchises, a writer who later disowned the finished movie (and wasn't afraid to be vocal about it) and what do you get? The weird, gloopy, tonally incongruous Alien: Resurrection, aka the ugly duckling of the Alien franchise, and the one that killed off Ellen Ripley and the xenomorphs for good. Instead of resurrecting the Alien franchise, the fourth Alien film buried it.
"They said the lines... wrong," opined writer Joss Whedon in 2006, years after the film's 1997 release. "And they cast it wrong. And they designed it wrong. And they scored it wrong. They did everything wrong that they could possibly do." Whedon was biased. Of course he was. He wrote the thing imagining a quip-y, taut little horror movie that mashed Ridley Scott with James Cameron. In short, he imagined Firefly with xenomorphs. »
Netflix has a many, many films, shows and documentaries to watch. A lot of them you will know are there - great Netflix Originals like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Better Call Saul - but there is even more to discover that you might not think or even know to look for.
Here are some of our favourite Netflix hidden gems:
Animator Don Hertzfeldt is a Digital Spy favourite, first coming to our attention with the bizarre, irreverent, melancholic and frequently obscene short Rejected. There is something undeniably beautiful behind the strangeness of the characters and scenarios he brings to life.
His first feature film, It's Such a Beautiful Day, spins together his previously released trilogy into a touching black comedy about hapless Bill and his hilarious, humdrum existence.
Chances are, this Netflix Original documentary will offer your »

Earlier this month, word arrived that 20th Century Fox was testing a varied group of actresses to play the female lead in Deadpool alongside Ryan Reynolds. When Gina Carano was cast a couple of days ago, we thought she might have leapfrogged the list. Not so! She’s definitely on board, but Morena Baccarin has won the coveted lead role.Baccarin, a Firefly veteran who has carved out a healthy career in the likes of Homeland, V and, more recently, Gotham and The Flash, has scored the plumb part of a woman who meets and falls for our scarred hero, though hopefully there’s more to her than just the basic character description.Tim Miller is gearing up to start shooting the film in March, unleashing the full comic fury of the merc with a mouth on the world. Alongside Carano and Baccarin, T.J. Miller will be added comic relief »
Welcome to a special edition of our news round-up, this time focusing on three comic book adaptations. The female lead in the Deadpool movie has been cast, the voice actors for Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Drax, Groot, and Rocket have been revealed for Disney Xd's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series (and fans of Boy Meets World and Batman Beyond should be very pleased with the Quill casting), and it's been announced that a Dreadstar TV series is in the works with the creator of the comic book series, Jim Starlin, executive producing and writing the project.
Deadpool: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Morena Baccarin (Inara Serra from Firefly and Serenity, Homeland, Gotham) will play the female lead in the upcoming Ryan Reynolds-starring Deadpool movie. The name of Baccarin's character has not yet been revealed, so it's unknown if she'll play a character from the Marvel comic book universe. »

Miller, and Gina Carano in the film. More on the Deadpool Morena Baccarin casting after the jump. […]

With less than a year to go before Fox's Deadpool hits the big screen, production is obivously kicking into high gear, which means we're hearing about other cast outside of Ryan Reynolds. Come inside to learn more about who's joined up and what role she might be playing.
Fans know Morena Baccarin from a number of fan-favorite properties, including V, Firefly/Serenity, and most recently Gotham. Now she's joined the cast of Deadpool, in an as yet unnamed lead female role. THR has the scoop and says that she'll be portraying Deadpool's love interest in the film. The prevailing theory going around the interwebs right now, however, is that she'll be playing Vanessa Carlyle (aka Copycat) in the film.
This info is based off a previously leaked version of the script, and who knows what may have changed from then to now in that time. Regardless, Baccarin is joining Ed Skrein, »

That marks her out as Vanessa Carlysle, I believe. Carlysle is definitely a big part of the two screenplay drafts I read, and Baccarin seems like a good fit for the part. She’s also age-suitable for Ryan Reynolds – he’s just three years or so older.
Shame that the script doesn’t give the character more to do.
In the comics, Carlysle was also known as Copycat, and was a mutant shape shifter with blue skin. None of that seems to apply in the film, especially not the blue skin. I suppose she could reveal herself as a shape shifter later in the series – if this ever becomes a series – but there’s no trace of it »

It was about two weeks ago that we first learned six actresses were in contention for the lead female role in director Tim Miller's Deadpool movie, but now apparently the filmmakers and folks at 20th Century Fox have made their selection from that list. New reports have revealed that it will be Morena Baccarin, best known for her roles on the television series Firefly and Homeland, who will be sharing scenes with Ryan Reynolds in the 2016 comic book movie. It's The Hollywood Reporter that has the scoop on Baccarin's addition to the Deadpool cast - though sadly the trade doesn't seem to have any solid information about the role that she will be playing. Instead, the only detail provided is that she will wind up being a romantic interest for the titular mouthy mercenary. The actress joins a cast that also includes Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller (who it »
After recently securing roles in the DC shows Gotham and The Flash, Morena Baccarin is now turning her hand to Marvel, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that the former Firefly star has nabbed the female lead in 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool.
Baccarin was one of several actresses on the shortlist for the role, with Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Red Band Society), Sarah Greene (Vikings) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow) all reported to have tested.
Deadpool is being directed by Tim Miller, and sees Ryan Reynolds reprising the role of the Merc with the Mouth alongside Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6) and T.J. Miller (Transformers: Age of Extinction).

Another day, another casting announcement for Tim Miller's Deadpool. After learning that T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, and Gina Carano had joined the cast, we now have the female lead set. Whittled down from a short list of actresses, Firefly veteran Morena Baccarin has landed the role of Wade Wilson's love interest. Baccarin is best known for her work on that Joss Whedon series and it's big screen follow-up, Serenity, but she has also appeared on the Showtime series »

After much deliberation, not to mention the back and forth between studios, Deadpool is finally ready to leap onto the silver screen in exactly one year’s time for his first standalone feature. And to mark the occasion, star Ryan Reynolds has posted a teaser image of a costume prototype; specifically, a sneak peek at the titular vigilante’s mask.
Taking to his personal Twitter account, Reynolds posted the following update from the Vancouver set.

Granted, it’s not much to go on, but it’s a timely reminder that we’re living in a world were a Deadpool movie is getting the blockbuster treatment — albeit, not with the same mammoth budget.

There’s just something special about the way Joss Whedon writes. Whether it by Firefly/Serenity, Buffy The Vampire Slayer or hell, The Avengers, the guy has a knack for wit and well developed characters. While I typically refrain from jumping into romantic comedies/dramas, when the Whedon-written In Your Eyes appeared in my mailbox, it was just too good Not to tell you fright fanatics about.
When, as a child, Dylan has a vision of a girl sledding through the snow and crashing into a tree, he feels the girl’s pain and gets knocked out of his chair. Now a grown-up and recently paroled ex-convict, Dylan (Cloverfield’s Michael Stahl-David) lives alone in a trailer in the middle of nowhere and frequents a bar in which his former friends (and the reasons for his imprisonment) continually try to talk Dylan into one last score.

Larping (or Live Action Role Playing) is subcultural phenomenon that is continuing to gain notoriety. For some it is a way of life, while for others they are not sure what language the word Larping originates from. Larping has had some cinematic spotlight in the past including the documentary Darkon and probably most infamously in the Paul Rudd & Seann William Scott comedy Role Models. However, director Joe Lynch takes his film Knights of Badassdom in an entirely different direction.
Knights of Badassdom asks the question of what happens when you take real life pretend fantasy and add true demonic forces. Based on the premise and cast the potential is rich with uniqueness. This could easily be in the same vein as films like Evil Dead, Cabin in the Woods, »
