While the entertainment industry has made efforts to depict a wider range of ethnicities, colors, sizes, and sexual orientations, it still registered as a momentous event when ABC’s Once Upon a Time announced that the new Cinderella for season 7, played by Dania Ramirez, would not be the classic white damsel in distress, but rather a fierce sword-fighting Latina warrior.

Now famous for her roles on Devious Maids and Entourage, Ramirez always knew she wanted to be an actress, »

CBS' Wisdom of the Crowd: Grade It!

1 October 2017 6:29 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Imagine this: Instead of just reading unsettling crime headlines whenever you check social media, you could actively participate in them.

That’s essentially the premise behind CBS’ new procedural drama Wisdom of the Crowd, which premiered Sunday night. Thanks to a new platform created by tech whiz Jeffrey Tanner (Entourage‘s Jeremy Piven), app users don’t have to sit idly by while law enforcement officials solve crimes; instead, ordinary people on the Internet can do it themselves.

‘Gotti’ Trailer: John Travolta Resurrects Mob Boss in Kevin Connolly-Directed Biopic

26 September 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Six years and two title changes after the project was announced, John Travolta will finally star as the titular Gambino family Mafioso in “Gotti.” Good Morning America debuted the film’s first trailer on Sept. 26, depicting the allegedly Gotti-ordered hit on his predecessor, Paul Castellano (Donald John Volpenhein), followed by his own demise from “The Teflon Don”—gleaming pompadour, designer suits—to a bald, craggy-faced inmate. Gotti died serving a murder sentence in 2002 at age 61; the cause was throat cancer. One of his sons, John Gotti Jr., helped advise director Kevin Connolly, and even provided Travolta with his father’s jewelry and ties to get into character.

Making “Gotti” was an unusual family bonding exercise for Travolta, who was last an Oscar nominee as “Pulp Fiction” hitman Vincent Vega: his real life wife (Kelly Preston) and daughter (Ella Bleu Travolta) play his relatives onscreen. On the steps of a courthouse, »

The Best TV Directors of All Time – IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who is the best TV director? Why? (For old, current or upcoming shows.)

The recent Emmy Awards was a good reminder of just how great television directors are right now. It was the best overall crop we’ve had in years, and one of the few categories where it felt like it could have gone any way.

But in terms of best television director, I’m partial to David Nutter. His 30-plus year resume is impressive (“The Sopranos,” “ER,” “The X-Files,” plus an Emmy win for “Game of Thrones”) and wildly varied (he’s done procedurals like “Without a Trace, »

The Child In Time review

22 September 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Sep 24, 2017

The BBC adaptation of Ian McEwan’s The Child In Time is a sensitively told story about resilience. Spoilers ahead…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  35 films we want to watch in 2017

“Keep breathing”. The final words from Benedict Cumberbatch’s character in A Child In Time are a summary of its message. Through trauma and though loss, the film urges, keep going. Keep breathing.

When their three year old daughter Kate goes missing from a busy supermarket, central characters Stephen and Julie (Cumberbatch and Kelly Macdonald) suffer the kind of loss from which recovery seems impossible. Kate is never found and her fate is never told. She spends the film both alive and dead, a presence and an absence.

The Child In Time though, isn’t Kate’s story; it’s Stephen’s. And it’s resolutely a story about emotional resilience, not child abduction. In »

Giant Insects Attack Coachella in Insane Dead Ant Trailer

15 September 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The trailer for Dead Ant is here and it looks like a classic monster movie mixed with Spinal Tap. The movie is a comic reimagining of the sci-fi classic of Them!. The B-movie vibe is laid on extra thick in the new trailer that features Sean Astin tripping out on Peyote and Tom Arnold pulling out a gun to shoot a giant ant after explaining that he carries the gun because he's in the music business. If that doesn't make you want to watch the movie, who knows what will. The impressive cast looks like they had a blast making Dead Ant and the soundtrack is stuffed with fake 80s metal adding to the fun.

The story starts when the "one-hit-wonder" glam-metal band "Sonic Grave" embark on a trip to Coachella in hopes of a comeback, but end up in No-Chella since their manager couldn't book them for the official »

Actors Who Were Almost Spider-Man

How many actors have played Spider-Man? We've had more Spider-Man movies than there are Baldwin brothers, or Kardashian sisters. But so what? Everybody loves the friendly neighborhood webhead! It's been more than half a century since Amazing Fantasy #15 hit the stands and ever since Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave us the kid who does whatever a spider can, Peter Parker's popularity has covered the world like a spider spinning its web. (Ugh sorry).

The wise cracking, hard working, hard luck hero is a young actor's dream. The number of guys who have wanted to get in that mask earned by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland could fill a Spider-Verse movie packed with Miles Morales, Doc Ock, Spider-Gwen and every other comic version of the wall crawler. Here, we look at 10 Actors who were almost cast as Spider-Man. For whatever reason, they just didn't make it into that costume. »
