New York is hoping to keep the projectors running in independent theaters throughout the Adirondacks. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Thursday that $400,000 in funding is being made available for the North Country Regional Economic Development Council’s digital film conversion loan fund to help small theaters in the northern part of the state convert projection equipment to digital technologies. The financial support comes at a time when many small town movie theaters across the country are facing extinction because they cannot afford the cost of converting from film projectors. Making the transition can cost theater owners between $65,000 to $150,000 per »

Sci-fi thriller based on the adventures of MTV's animated action vixen, set in a dystopian future where salvation lies with a group of spirited renegades. Charlize Theron takes a very different kind of role, after her sterling work in Monster and North Country, as a catsuited gun-for-hire recruited to take out the leader of a sinister cult of virus survivors. Like Resident Evil? »

Comic-Con regulars know Thursday is usually the calm before the epic storm of Friday and Saturday. And without "Twilight" on the agenda, this year's first full day of the Con looks even less packed than usual.
Except, of course, for the 20th Anniversary of "The X-Files" which should fill Ballroom 20 past its breaking point and likely have hardcore fans lining up early just to guarantee a seat.
On the movie side, panels for "Divergent" and "Ender's Game" will try to lure the "Twilight" crowd (and hopefully appeal to some non-"Twilight" loving sci-fi fans as well). While anticipated TV panels also include fan favorites "Psych," "Dexter," "Teen Wolf," "Wilfred" and "Beauty and the Beast" and newcomers "Hannibal," "The Blacklist," "Star-Crossed" and "Intelligence" (with "Lost" star Josh Holloway).

Jessica Chastain is arguably Hollywood.s fastest-rising female star. Aiming to capitalise on her box-office appeal, Roadshow has pre-bought The Zookeeper.s Wife, the true story of two Warsaw Zoo employees who sheltered hundreds of Jews during WW2.
The film will be directed by Kiwi Niki Caro, whose credits include Whale Rider, North Country and The Vintner.s Luck.

The Zero Dark Thirty star is in Ireland filming Liv Ullmann's Miss Julie with Samantha Morton and Colin Farrell, and she.s also signed to appear with Emma Stone and Benedict Cumberbatch in Guillermo del Toro.s haunted house thriller Crimson Peak.
Roadshow jumped on the project at the Cannes Film Market, plus Pride Prejudice and Zombies, »

Put the gun down, take that rope from around your neck, step back from that ledge. This is not, I repeat Not, a sequel to the Kevin James movie. Phew! Almost lost a few of you there. Jessica Chastain is to star in an adaptation of The Zookeeper’S Wife, a book by Diane Ackerman. When Nazis invade Warsaw, Jan and Antonina Zabinski begin protecting animals and Jews with the use of their zoo. Chastain will take on the role of Antonina, and production outfit Panorama are hoping to sell the idea at Cannes. Niki Caro, known for her work on Whale Rider and North Country, will direct the project. A true story featuring the endurance of the human spirit And animals? This sounds like it could be a real emotional crowd pleaser.

Jessica Chastain’s rise in the film industry has been nothing short of meteoric. Just think, exactly two years ago, hardly anyone knew about her. Then Cannes 2011 comes around, and she’s in two films: “Take Shelter” and “The Tree of Life.” And in short order, Chastain had arrived. Now with two Oscar nominations in two consecutive years, she looks to continue her hot streak. THR reports that Jessica Chastain is attached to star in “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” an adaptation of the Diane Ackerman novel. The novel tells the true story Jan Zabinski, a keeper of the Warsaw Zoo, and his wife Antonina, who saved the lives of 300 Jews who had been imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto following the Nazi invasion of Poland. The Zabinskis had kept Jews in empty cages and even kept about a dozen Jews inside their home. New Zealand director Niki Caro (“Whale Rider”, “North Country”) will direct. »

Director Niki Caro has made a refreshing habit out of casting women in starring roles for films which offer Hollywood’s finest the chance to sink their teeth into something meaty. Whale Rider made a star of Keisha Castle-Hughes. Silkwood-lite North Country bagged its star Charlize Theron a second Oscar nomination. Who next?
Looks like Caro is remaining steadfast to female visibility in Hollywood, as her next film The Zookeeper’s Wife now has the almighty Jessica Chastain attached to star. Adapted from Diane Ackerman’s novel by screenwriter Angela Workman, The Zookeeper’s Wife is the true account of the brave efforts of the Warsaw Zoo zookeepers during the Nazi invasion of World War II.
Jan and Antonina Zabinski set about rescuing hundreds of Jews during the invasion by hiding them in animal cages and several in their home. Antonina Zabinski kept a number of animals alive as well, »

The World War II drama The Zookeeper's Wife has scored Jessica Chastain as its star, with Niki Caro (Whale Rider, North Country) set to direct. It's the true story of how Jan and Antonina Zabinski oversaw the Warsaw Zoo in Poland, smuggled hundreds of persecuted Jews in animal cages, and harbored Jewish families in their home alongside animals including otters and hyena pups. The film is based on Diane Ackerman's 2007 book. »

It had come as quite a surprise to me to learn that the 2011, supposedly one-off, ITV drama, Marchlands, was getting a ‘follow-up’ series this year, called Lightfields. I confess,the name put me off a bit to begin with. Initially it sounded as if they had just lazily inverted ‘Marchlands’ to make a new name that that some connotation of the old one (Why not Octoberfields?). Nevertheless, I thought, at least I’ll have something to watch on a Wednesday night. At least for a few weeks anyway, because, no doubt, they’ll only be about 6 episodes. See my thoughts on that here. Regardless, it was a nice surprise because I did enjoyed the first series, and it is very seldom that these sort of British dramas get any sort of continuation. So, I am now rather looking forward to this ‘second series’, of sorts, even if it is two years since the first one. »

It’s pilot season, which means your favorite out-of-work TV actors, actresses, creators and writers are getting a chance to return to the small screen once more.
Although we have yet to know what new series we’ll see next year, the networks have been busy selecting projects to consider for their schedules. So far, almost 100 scripts have been chosen, and audiences will only get to see a handful actually come to fruition.
Several are duds, but there are a few promising prospects that I hope network executives will keep around for the 2013-2014 season — even if it means they have to cancel old favorites to make room (just keep Parks and Recreation, Ok, NBC?).
Check out my choices for the best prospective pilots NBC and CBS have ordered, and come back tomorrow to see my picks for ABC and Fox:

Based on unpublished book Dissident by John Dixon, the show is about a U.S. intelligence unit whose top agent, Gabriel Black (Holloway), has some very special abilities — a microchip that has been implanted into his head allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The pilot script comes from Michael Seitzman (North Country) and will be directed by David Semel (No Ordinary Family).
Since wrapping up Lost in 2010, Holloway’s projects have included a guest »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holloway -- best known as Sawyer on the ABC island drama -- will star in "Intelligence" as Gabriel Black, a former Navy Seal.
The drama pilot from "North Country's" Michael Seizman centers on U.S. Cyber Command, "a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift: a microchip that has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum," THR reports.
Two of Holloway's former "Lost" co-stars currently appear on CBS programs: Michael Emerson (Ben Linus) stars on "Person of Interest" and Daniel Dae Kim (Jin-Soo Kwon) is a regular on "Hawaii Five-o." Fingers crossed for a reunion!
