The CW is holding both "Star-Crossed" and "The 100" in reserve for mid-season duty, but during the recent TV Upfronts they released a few photos from each show's pilot, and we have a look at them all right here.
Both series have a sci-fi tinge, but "The 100" especially, with its post-apocalyptic setting and the presence of Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Scandal”), has our attention for sure. And while "Star-Crossed" definitely seems to appeal to the more romantic types among us, it has a lot of familiar faces and could be worth watching for one or two episodes at least.
So while you're here, check out the photos below (top row from "The 100" and bottom from "Star-Crossed"). For more info visit "The 100" and "Star-Crossed" on Cwtv.com, and follow "The 100" (@cwthe100) and "Star-Crossed" (@CWStarCrossed) on Twitter.

The CW has long been one of the best supporters of Our Kind of Shows, and at this year’s Upfronts they put even more money where our hearts are. Of the six new shows announced for the fall and winter schedule, four are for us: The Originals, The Tomorrow People, The 100, and Star-Crossed. Now of course more than one has that trademark The CW soap opera-ish spin on it, but hey, not Every show is for every one of us.
Here to assist in our prejudging are synopses for all, via Deadline, and maybe even better, clips and/or TV spots. There’s not really anything new for The Originals, but fans will want to see it all again anyway. The Tomorrow People features the wonderful Mark Pellegrino so it’s my favorite of the four.
The 100 (pronounced “the hundred”, not “the one hundred”) has an encouraging clip, »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fifth and final one announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on The CW.
After targeting teen girls for so long, The CW has widened their demographic focus and in the process have improved their fortunes with three of their five new shows from last year returning. One in particular, "Arrow," has been a big hit for them. As a result this year's line-up sticks heavily with genre fare - sci-fi, supernatural, and even a period piece.
The network's troubled "Nikita" has scored a six episode third season order to wrap up its story lines, no word on when those episodes will air just yet. In fact, specific premiere dates for all their shows have yet to be set.

Are you a good witch, or a bad witch? Or, more accurately, do you prefer a good witch or a bad witch? That's the question we're asking today on this very special Ladies of "Oz the Great and Powerful" edition of NextMovie's Eff, Marry, Kill.
It would appear that beauty and magic have a direct correlation because Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, all certified Gorgeous Ladies, portray the three witches of Oz in the new flick, due in theaters March 8. Lovely though they all may be, there can only be one good witch — and only one you choose to bring home to Mom in a game of Eff, Marry, Kill, good witch or not so good.
So who will it be? Do you marry the lady who comes and goes by bubble? Have a soft spot for the witch in red? Are you enchanted by Oz's third witch? »

Movies based on John Grisham books used to be a near annual occurence in the 1990s. We had good ones (The Client, A Time To Kill), we had bad ones (The Pelican Brief, The Chamber), and we had ones that were fun, but seemed to go on forever (The Firm). And for a while, of course, it seemed as though director Joel Schumacher would keep making them alternately with his Batman projects.
When Batman & Robin bombed though, Schumacher abandoned his plan to make The Runaway Jury (which subsequently turned up in 2003, with Gary Fleder directing), and Grisham seemingly became less interested in selling the movie rights to his bestselling thrillers. In fact, the last film based on a Grisham book was 2004's Christmas With The Kranks, which was the movie take on Skipping Christmas. »
In the mid-90s, it seemed only a few months would pass until another film adaptation of a John Grisham novel popped up at a multiplex. The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, A Time to Kill, The Chamber, and The Rainmaker all came out between 1993-1997, adding to Grisham's legacy as one of America's most popular thriller writers. The most recent film adaptations of his work, Runaway Jury and Christmas with the Kranks, weren't big successes, but THR reports that a film version of Grisham's newest novel, The Racketeer, will hit the big screen under the direction of Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa. Read on! Here's the official synopsis of The Racketeer from Amazon: Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. »

It's coming on nine years since the last movie based on a work by John Grisham hit the screen ("Christmas With The Kranks"), and ten years if you stick strictly to his bread-and-butter legal thrillers ("Runaway Jury"). But Grisham is still a big name and a bestselling author, and it's no surprise that Hollywood has been eager to get back in the game with the writer. NBC tried, and failed, to turn "The Firm" into a series, and over the past year a number of his books have been developing including "The Associate," "Calico Joe" and "The Partner." And now another is entering the fray. Fox 2000 and New Regency are teaming up for "The Racketeer," landing the rights and setting it up as a vehicle for "Safe House" director Daniel Espinosa. The book tells the story of a jailed former attourney who holds the key to solving the murder of a federal judge, »
