Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.

Amazon will let Prime members stream and download all 10 episodes of “Mr. Robot” season 1 for no additional charge.
For Amazon, the pact — likely one of its priciest acquisitions for a single series — is a coup in its fight with rivals Netflix and Hulu to secure exclusive programming. Amazon also has won exclusive Svod rights to shows including all seasons of “Downton Abbey,” “Orphan Black” and “24,” and offers HBO original series that »

Decorated filmmaker Steven Spielberg behind the camera and Tom Hanks in front? It’s little wonder that Cold War espionage drama Bridge of Spies is garnering early buzz ahead of this year’s awards race. Boasting an abundance of Oscar-friendly tropes, Spielberg’s latest is based on the inspiring real events surrounding a Brooklyn lawyer (Hanks) who is tasked with venturing to the other side of the Iron Curtain to defend a wayward Kgb spy.
Acting against every fiber in his being, Hanks’ James Donovan is originally assigned to locate and free a captured America pilot, who crashed his U-2 airplane behind enemy lines. However, bartering with the Soviets during the height of the Cold War proved to be anything but easy.
Primed to release next month, Entertainment Weekly has today debuted a new trailer for Bridge of Spies, showcasing a layered, riveting drama that features an eye-catching turn by Hanks. »

When Mr. Robot debuted back in June, the show was pitched as a ripped-from-the-headlines techno-thriller, with the return of Christian Slater to TV as its main attraction. Now, two months and 10 episodes later, the USA network has an unlikely hit on its hands: a visually striking, subversive, and often surprising drama about the dehumanizing effects of our corporate-controlled, internet-addicted modern world. And a lot of the credit for the show's out-of-left-field success belongs to the man who plays the series' troubled hacker hero — the 34-year-old character actor Rami Malek.
Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughn and Sam Worthington have already been drafted for Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge, but military platoon movies need ensembles by their very nature, so there's always room for one more. Step forward Luke Bracey, who'll follow the Point Break remake with another leading role.Hacksaw Ridge is based on the true of Desmond T. Doss (Garfield), who served as a Us Army medic in World War II and refused to kill. Despite his objections, his incredible valour saving lives saw him awarded the Medal of Honor, the first time a conscientious objector won the decoration.Bracey will be playing Smitty, "the hard-nosed alpha dog" of the platoon who initially butts heads with Doss but comes to understand him on the road to the Battle Of Okinawa.This is Gibson's first film as director since Apocalypto in 2006, and re-teams him with Braveheart and We Were Soldiers screenwriter Randall Wallace. »
Looking for news, casting, rumours and more about the next season of HBO's Game Of Thrones? Then you've come to the right place...
This is news we were all expecting, but welcome nonetheless. After a season's absence, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, aka Bran Stark, will be returning in Game Of Thrones season 6. Presumably, that means catching up with Hodor and Meera, too.
The last we saw the second-to-youngest Stark boy, he had finally completed his quest to meet the Three-Eyed Raven and was about to begin another, a training journey with the Children of the Forest which would teach him more about his Warg powers.
Here's what Hempstead-Wright told The Irish Examiner about Bran's return to the show:
“I can’t say a lot but I am back this season, and it’s going to get particularly interesting with Bran. He has some interesting visions."
"I missed the whole of »
Field revealed his plans on Facebook, prompting numerous offers of help from colleagues and friends of the much-loved actor who died in 2011, aged 71.
Close buddies for more than 25 years, Hunter and Field often discussed co-writing a book but never got around to it.
.We were having too much fun,. Field tells If. He may use the title suggested by Hunter, which trades on one of the actor's favourite expressions, .Stand Where and Say What?.
Field first met Hunter, whose credits include Newsfront, Gallipoli, Strictly Ballroom, Muriel's Wedding, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, Road to Nhill, Crackerjack, The Pacific and The Cup, at the Belvoir Theatre.
They worked together twice, in Laurie McInnes. 1993 black-and-white drama Broken Highway and in Alkinos Tsilimidos.s 2004 film Tom White, which starred Colin Friels as an architect whose life unravels after a nervous breakdown. »

Game Of Throne season 6 has firmed up its list of directors, including Miguel Sapochnik of the magnificent Hardhome...
For anyone curious about which directors might be returning for Game Of Thrones season 6, today an official list has been confirmed. The biggest news, for us at least? That'd be Miguel Sapochnik, who has been bumped up to directing the final two episodes having impressed so much with season 5's Hardhome battle. That makes us think that season 6 might end with a big fight, too.
Notable for their absence once again are previous directing regulars Alex Graves, David Nutter, Alik Sakharov and Michelle Maclaren. Neil Marshall too, helmer of Blackwater and The Watchers On The Wall, won't be returning next time around by the looks of things.
Directing: Episodes 1 & 2
Season 5 credits: Kill the Boy, Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken Other credits: The Pacific, »
It feels as though Game of Thrones’ fifth season just ended, but already the production is getting ready to start filming Season 6 in a little over a month’s time. It’s a brutal schedule, as showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss spend 12 months of the year in a state of pre-production, production, post-production, or some combination of the three, but they’ve finalized a very important piece of the Season 6 puzzle: the directors. Per EW, the full list of directors for what could be the show’s penultimate season is as follows: [caption id="attachment_478303" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via HBO[/caption] Jeremy Podeswa (Episodes 1 & 2) – Podeswa made his GoT debut with Season 5’s “Kill the Boy” and “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” and his other credits include The Pacific, The Walking Dead, and Boardwalk Empire.

USA Network isn't the USA Network you know. Not anymore. Not after "Mr. Robot" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, taking home an audience award before screening at the Tribeca Film Festival and SeriesFest and getting a sneak peak online for anyone with an internet connection. The thriller from creator Sam Esmail bucks just about every association viewers have made with the NBC Universal cable network, ditching the blue skies and episodic storytelling for black hoodies cloaked by night and a gripping, serialized character study. At its center is Rami Malek, a name you may not know yet but a face you're sure to recognize — and remember liking. Malek, despite his young age of 34, has appeared in everything from critically-acclaimed miniseries ("The Pacific") to breakout indie darlings ("Short Term 12") to big-time studio blockbusters ("Battleship"). Now, he's taking his talents to USA, a decision he had to deliberate on before signing. »

USA's new drama "Mr. Robot" is bursting with storytelling devices that, individually, have been overused in recent years to the point of irritation. Excessive narration to explain every character, every plot twist, and every emotion our hero is feeling? Check! A hero described in the press notes as a "vigilante hacker," and who spends enough time sitting at a keyboard in the first two episodes to live up to that moniker? Check! (Though at least no one on the show refers to themselves as a hacktivist.) Abundant grand pronouncements about The Way We Live Now, most of them just wrapped in vague anti-corporate sentiments? Check! A central character suffering from enough undefined mental health issues that large swaths of the show's story and other characters may exist only in his head, thus allowing the creative team to pull the rug out from under the audience whenever and wherever they please? »

If casting and character are half the battle, “Mr. Robot” is more than halfway home. Showcasing Rami Malek in a breakout performance as a highly unorthodox protagonist — a socially clumsy, almost feral hacker — the series rivals “Rectify” as Program With the Most Tortured Lead Character. As written by Sam Esmail, this has the jittery feel of a British thriller, and an absurdist sense of entrenched interests vs. a weird insurgency: a conceit that vaguely recalls Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil.” While commercial prospects appear hazy, it’s hard to remember the last time USA put on anything more intriguing.
Malek’s Elliot is a cyber-security specialist by day, laboring away for a cubicle-filled corporation. By night, though, he’s an unrepentant hacker — delving into the personal lives of those who enter his orbit — as well as a drug user and someone so painfully awkward that he freely admits, “I don’t »

Jurassic World is shattering box office records across the globe, but what happened to the stars of the movie that kick-started it all? Steven Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park was flawlessly cast, mixing well-known stars and fresh faces in a perfect blockbuster thrill-ride.
A one-time contender to play James Bond, Neill's early credits include espionage series Reilly: Ace of Spies, Dead Calm and The Hunt for Red October. In the years after Jurassic Park he notched up roles in Event Horizon, The Tudors and Peaky Blinders. Neill »
USA Network’s original series “Mr. Robot” introduces Elliot, played by Rami Malek (“The Pacific,” “Night at the Museum”) in TheWrap’s new exclusive sneak peek of the show. In the series, Malek plays cyber-security computer programmer who is recruited by an underground organization to bring down corporate America. Christian Slater (“Interview with the Vampire,” “Robin Hood”) stars as the group’s ringleader who encourages the hesitant vigilante to take down a number of big companies, including the one Elliot is paid to guard. “You’re going to change the world,” Elliot is told in the promo. For now, he »
