Bryan Cranston is making an anthology show based on the works of sci-fi icon Philip K. Dick. We may have just found his first co-star for the series. While chatting with Anthony Mackie about All the Way (in which Mackie plays Martin Luther King, Jr. opposite Cranston’s Lbj), I mentioned the recently announced anthology series since Mackie has some Philip K. Dick on his resume with 2011 movie The Adjustment Bureau. Mackie seems to have a genuine enthusiasm for the writer whose stories have led to tons of screen adaptations, Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, and The Man in the High Castle among them. “Adjustment Bureau reigns as one of my favorite movies I’ve done,” Mackie told me. “Philip K. Dick’s short stories are just amazing and from another time of writing. You used to sit and read those stories, and they would take you to a whole other world. »

Before you say anything: no slot machine will ever measure up to a Hollywood blockbuster. The slots you can play at the All Slots Casino are, after all, simple games with little to no action, bearing a resemblance to the movies that serve as an inspiration for them – and the resemblance is only “skin-deep”, so to say. But this doesn’t mean they are not worthy of attention – especially since some of them manage to create the very same atmosphere the movies did.
This slot machine made some waves last summer, and maybe it was on purpose – it was released suspiciously close to the fourth movie in the franchse. Based on its trailer, it promised to be a great game – and once it was released, it measured up to its players’ hopes. Its visuals, sounds and animations, not to mention the cut scenes, were all top of the line, »

He does everything he can to prevent the house from selling, but eventually it’s time to say goodbye. But not without one final Carlton Dance first. Other notable May 20 happenings in pop culture history: • 1957: Frank Sinatra recorded “Witchcraft” at Capitol Records. • 1970: The Beatles documentary Let It Be opened in U.K. theaters. • 1980: Kiss released Unmasked, the last studio album to feature the band’s original lineup until Kiss reunited in 1996. • 1982: The series finale of cop sitcom Barney Miller aired on ABC. • 1983: The Police released the single “Every Breath You Take.” • 1987: Beverly Hills Cop II opened in theaters. »

Anghus Houvouras on whether the geeks have won the culture war…
I don’t know how long the online film community has been patting themselves on the back over the current state of pop culture. It feels like a god damned eternity. Countless pieces being written about how geek friendly fare like Star Wars & Comic Book Movies have taken over the collective cinematic consciousness. Whether it be in the form of television shows or blockbuster cinema, the geeks have seemingly inherited the earth. For better or worse.
This topic came up again this week with another swim through the chum bucket of nostalgia courtesy of Drew McWeeney. His HitFix column focused on the agitated state of the geek community. That in spite of the geeks winning the pop culture war and being delivered and endless stream of sci-fi and comic book content that they still seem perpetually displeased. Does this really surprise anyone? »

A review of tonight's The Americans coming up just as soon as I take my antibiotic and a nap... "It's never been this bad. It's worse every day." -Gabriel When Alias revealed that Sydney Bristow had been missing in action for two years, or when Battlestar Galactica leaped forward a year in mid-scene, the idea of a huge time jump was still shocking. Over a decade later — after shows as diverse as Lost, Desperate Housewives, Hannibal, Parks and Recreation, Masters of Sex, and Catastrophe have skipped ahead either between seasons or during them — the idea is just another commonly-accepted tool in any showrunner's tool kit, so that fans often predict their favorite series will use it as the only way out of a current story arc. The device has become so familiar, in fact, that where once it dropped jaws, it now risks eliciting shrugs. What makes the seven-month time »

The Starz drama “Outlander” has reinvented itself in its second season. Gone are the windswept Highlands of Scotland and the rough-hewn castles and cottages that Claire Randall Fraser and Jamie Fraser took refuge in during the show’s 16-episode first season.
For this year’s 13-episode season, the couple is in Paris; silky gowns and candlelit dinners have replaced woolen garments and crusts of bread next to a campfire. Yet “Outlander’s” appeal endures, despite the changes: The undeniable chemistry between time-traveler Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) anchors the show’s personal and political agendas, and Claire’s quest to find her place in history — or to simply change it — gives the lush saga of “Outlander” a jolt of unpredictable energy. In love with both Jamie and Frank (Tobias Menzies), the husband she left behind when she traveled to the 18th Century, Claire is one of the most believably complex heroines on TV, »

The official Call of Duty youtube page has released a reveal trailer for their latest game in the franchise! Check out the trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare below!
The recent variations of Call of Duty have focused on futuristic tech on the battlefield. It was only a matter of time before they took to the skies, into space! Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare takes a page out of all our favorite space science fiction warfare to produce battles that even a Battlestar Galactica fan could appreciate.
While it's no Eve: Valkyrie, this is a major step in the franchise. It shows that the sky is no longer the limit for Call of Duty. Perhaps, they'll even have an interstellar Dlc, in the future. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare hits shelves on November 4, 2016.
You can also pre-order the Legacy Edition to get Modern Warfare Remastered, as well, for $79.99.
