11 February 2017 10:10 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 21st Annual Art Directors Guild Excellence in Production Design Awards ceremony was billed as a “Return to Hollywood.” Backdrops from classic films dotted the interior of the Ray Dolby Ballroom lobby. Johnny Crawford and his Orchestra kicked off the evening’s festivities with “Hooray for Hollywood.” Even a handful of the evening’s big winners were films that fit the theme perfectly.

As expected, “La La Land” continued its storybook run through awards season, with David Wasco’s team winning for Contemporary Film. In an upset, Wynn Thomas and the team from “Hidden Figures” took home honors in Period Film, despite “Hail, Caesar!” being the only of the category’s nominees to also pick up a nom for Oscars night. “It’s been a long journey to this moment,” said Thomas, who described being nominated at the very first Art Directors Guild award for “Mars Attacks!” “I’m so »

In preparation for ‘Chapter Two’ here’s our A-z of ‘John Wick’

9 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ahead of Chapter Two, here’s our A-z of the world of John Wick.

John Wick: Chapter 2 arrives in UK cinemas on February 17th 2017. The film is a sequel to 2014’s John Wick, the film that re-established Keanu Reeves as an A-List action star. The story told of a retired hit-man who found himself back in the seedy criminal world after his beloved dog, a gift from his deceased wife, was murdered. The film is all kinds of brilliant, perfectly blending various elements to create a real-life graphic novel.

But in case you’re a little rusty on the world of Wick we’ve compiled this handy A – Z guide.

A is for Assassins

For those not acquainted with the world of John Wick, it’s all about the underworld of hit-men and hit-women. The most decorated of these is John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hit-man who managed to »

Can New Voices Break Through in Pilot Season Dominated by Familiar Names?

8 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The broadcast TV development process has changed dramatically during the past few years. The influx of competition from cable and streaming services with big budgets has forced the Big Four networks to move quickly, warm up to spec scripts, offer straight-to-series commitments, and in many instances, accept the fact that they are no longer the first stop for hot TV packages hitting the marketplace.

But one thing that doesn’t seem to have changed much in all of this upheaval is the reliance on tried-and-true hit-makers. As networks zero in on their last few pilot orders for the 2017-18 development cycle, the slate is dominated by a host of familiar uber-producers: Shonda Rhimes, Greg Berlanti, Tina Fey, Bill Lawrence. The “How I Met Your Mother” team is back at CBS with a comedy, and Marc Cherry of “Desperate Housewives” fame has come home to ABC, with Reba McEntire in tow, for »

Supergirl Season 2: Teri Hatcher and Kevin Sorbo to Appear!

3 February 2017 11:29 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Some well known actors will be stopping by Supergirl later this season. 

Earlier this week, Teri Hatcher signed up to appear as a new villain in a recurring capacity and we're super excited. 

How so?

Hatcher starred as Lois Lane on ABC's take on Superman. If you recall, it was titled Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and lasted four seasons. 

Yeah, we're still not impressed with the way ABC handled the show. 

Hatcher is probably more well known for her role in Desperate Housewives, but we're sure she'll make her mark on Supergirl

She's currently slated to appear in more than one episode later this season. 

Her appearance could also pave the way for a reunion with her Lois & Clark co-star Dean Cain, who currently stars as Jeremiah Danvers. 

He was last seen a few months ago when his character was revealed to be alive and in captivity at Project Cadmus. »
