TV has a new superhero. Marvel’s Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.
Starring Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), Marvel’s Daredevil remains faithful to the long-running comic’s reputation as a realistic crime drama.

Los Angeles fire department worker Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson) is determined to save his family in the wake of the devastation, even though his daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) is hundreds of miles away.
The musically-gifted Johnson paid tribute to his co-star Minogue earlier this week by singing a few bars of her hit 'The Loco-Motion' to Digital Spy.
San Andreas opens on Friday (May 29) in the Us and the UK.
Watch our interview with director Brad Peyton and the cast below: »
When a massive earthquake hits California, a rescue-helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) makes a dangerous journey from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save his estranged daughter (Alexandra Daddario) in San Andreas. The film reunites Johnson and director Brad Peyton, who worked together on 2012's Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and also features Carla Gugino, Paul Giamatti and Ioan Gruffudd, with a screenplay written by Lost's Carlton Cuse. Opening opposite the Cameron Crowe-directed romantic comedy Aloha (and coupled with Tomorrowland's less-than-stellar opening last weekend), San Andreas is projected to earn the top spot this weekend without too much competition.

Paramount continues to add personnel to its planned Transformers cinematic universe, as it's recruited another pair of writers to join the assorted projects it has in the works.
The studio has opted for a writers' room approach to its next swathe of Transformers films, with Akiva Goldsman heading it up. Also on board are The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Jeff Pinkner (Lost).
You may have already seen the story about Michael Bay and the other Transformers producers tasking Akiva Goldsman with assembling a writing team to hash out more films and essentially construct a shared universe for different stories to work in. Deadline reports that Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari are joining the group. The pair, who completed an uncredited production re-write on the Marvel movie about the shrinking superhero (based on work that Adam McKay and Paul Rudd did to Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s original script), joins a team that already includes Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man co-writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Lost/Fringe man Jeff Pinkner and The Incredible Hulk’s Zak Penn.And according to Deadline’s story, one of the big ideas being batted around is crafting an origin story for the Autobots and Decepticons that would explore their early days on Cybertron, »
Thanks to the massive success of the Marvel movies, every franchise now wants their own "Marvel-style universe" - including "Transformers," which is assembling a "writers room" to plot their next steps.
Deadline reports that "Ant-Man" writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari have joined a team headed by Akiva Goldsman and including "Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirman" and "Lost" writer Jeff Pinkner. And it seems the first idea to come out of the brain trust is for a prequel set on Cybertron.
The goal of the writers room is to prep a movie to be ready when Michael Bay finishes filming the Benghazi drama "13 Hours." It's an interesting idea to assemble a TV-style team like this, to brainstorm future sequels, prequels, spinoffs, or even reboots.
"Transformers One" would be an origin story about the robots, good and evil. It could be an animated film or live-action. A prequel could be a merchandising bonanza for Hasbro, »

It’s easy to see why Netflix would jump at a series from the Wachowskis and science-fiction writer J. Michael Straczynski, even if the credits are a spellchecker’s nightmare. Yet while the streaming service was no doubt hoping for “The Matrix,” in commercial terms, it wound up with something closer to “Jupiter Ascending” and “Cloud Atlas” — or worse, its own “Marco Polo.” A dense sci-fi construct that’s poorly explained through three episodes, “Sense8” bears some resemblance to Fox’s short-lived “Touch,” infusing a sense of global interconnectedness with mystical mumbo-jumbo. But the main problem, simply, is that the show doesn’t make much sense.
The extra-long premiere opens by seeking to establish the basic premise, which involves eight disparate people — ethnically diverse and geographically spread across the world — being joined in a vague manner that allows them to share experiences and knowledge. That opens, somewhat promisingly, with their »

Director: Brad Peyton.
Running Time: 114 minutes
Synopsis: After a devastating earthquake hits California, a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue-helicopter pilot (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) attempt to leave Los Angeles and head to San Francisco to find and rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario).
San Andreas joins a long list of disaster movies that have been hurtled our way over the past few years; from the heights of Irwin Allen’s epics of the 1960s and 1970s (see The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, The Poseidon Adventure), to the more recent CGI affairs, most of which were thrown at the screen by German director Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow). While most of those movies relied on high-octane effects and a multitude of characters led by one or two big name stars, »

Throughout his career, Danny Trejo's played a wide range of intimidating characters that steal scenes with their powerful presences, and his upcoming role as The Regulator in Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series looks to be no exception.
Press Release -- "El Rey Network and Miramax released a first-look image of "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" featuring Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills) in his new role as"The Regulator," a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand. Trejo appeared in the "From Dusk Till Dawn" film franchise as "Razor Charlie." Currently in production on its sophomore season, "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series" is slated to return late Summer 2015.
Trejo has had a prolific career in the entertainment industry, yet his road to success has been hard earned and anything but typical, spanning imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, »

Danny Trejo is set to return to the world of From Dusk Till Dawn later this summer in the second season of El Rey’s TV adaptation of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s cult feature, and we’ve got the first image of the tattooed tough guy in the new role of The Regulator…
Season two of the show expands the universe across two borders from Mexico to Texas, and deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Season Two begins with our characters in their separate worlds – Santánico (Eiza González) and Richie (Zane Holtz) are outside Houston, living like Bonnie and Clyde; Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and Kate (Madison Davenport) are scraping by in the South of the Border; Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia) is protecting his wife and young daughter in a Houston suburb: and Carlos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama) and Scott Fuller »

We're at a weird place in Hollywood history, one where an original idea, executed by some of the industry's most successful writers and directors, and starring an A-list leading man, is considered an almost foolish risk -- especially in a summer season marked by blockbuster sequels that are considered safe by comparison. So it is with "Tomorrowland," Disney's big question mark of a Memorial Day weekend movie.
It was actually easier to predict how the reboot of a 33-year-old horror franchise ("Poltergeist") would open this weekend, or the sequel to a franchise whose last installment came out 30 years ago ("Mad Max: Fury Road") would open last weekend, than to guess how "Tomorrowland" would do. Indeed, predictions for "Fury Road" and "Poltergeist" (which opened this weekend with an estimated $23.0 million) were almost exactly on target. "Tomorrowland," however, opened on the low end of expectations, with an estimated $32.2 million through Sunday and »

Would UK entry Electro Velvet fare better than our last duo Jemini, who got nul points in 2003? How did special guest Australia get on? Stuart Heritage was there for every last Eurovision second
And now we are done. Sincerest congratulations to Sweden, and commiserations to all the other contestants, uniformly doomed as they are to become embedded YouTube clips in endless ‘What the hell was all that about’ Eurovision precursor articles a decade from now.
Now, while we go through our own individual post-Eurovision decompression routines – I don’t know about you, but mine involves putting my head into a metal bin and shouting ‘Why?’ over and over again until I tumble into the comforting arms of unconsciousness – it’s time for me to thank you. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, I appreciate you hanging out with me this evening. If you want to follow me on Twitter, »

Review by Dana Jung
Of all the “lands” at Disneyland/Disney World (the others are Frontierland, Adventureland, and Fantasyland in case you’ve forgotten), Tomorrowland holds the most promise to an impressionable youth. With visions of Buck Rogers rayguns and Jetsons flying machines, the park promises more than it delivers, with its slow “people-movers” and static displays of smart homes and fashions of the future. Except for Space Mountain—a truly incredible roller coaster ride—this park is at once the most visually stimulating, and the most unexciting. The new film Tomorrowland shares some of these qualities, but is the end result a wild coaster ride of a popcorn movie, or a rehash of stale ideas about a utopian future?
Britt Robertson (Under The Dome, The Longest Ride) plays Casey, a smart and capable teenager living in a single-parent household consisting of her caring father (Tim McGraw) and not-so-annoying little brother (Pierce Gagnon, »

If you haven't heard of Carlton Cuse, you almost certainly have watched a show or film that he's been crucially involved in. For most viewers, his name is synonymous with J.J. Abrams' Lost, where he served as both a regular writer and producer, and he's recently been one of the major creative forces behind both Bates Motel and A&E's recent English remake of The Returned. Most recently, he penned the script for San Andreas, Brad Peyton's upcoming disaster film which stars Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino, but these projects are hardly the only thing on Cuse's radar right now. Cuse is producing The Strain Season 2, which bows July 12th, but more importantly, he's prepping Colony, a brand new science fiction series for USA. Steve got a chance to sit down with Cuse recently to discuss a number of projects, including San Andreas and his television work, and »

As you already know, Paramount is embarking on expanding their "Transformers" franchise into a shared universe of movies, with Akiva Goldsman ("Jonah Hex," "Batman & Robin," and "Batman Forever") tasked with overseeing and hiring the brain trust of scribes to bring this all to life. And the intentions are made very clear by the names have been signed up to further the adventures of Autobots and Decepticons. Deadline reports that Robert Kirkman ("The Walking Dead"), Art Marcum & Matt Holloway ("Iron Man," "Punisher: War Zone"), Zak Penn ("X2," "Elektra," "The Incredible Hulk," "The Avengers") and Jeff Pinkner ("Lost," "The Amazing Spider-Man 2") are being inked as the initial quartet of writers for Transformers-verse, with more to come. And their credits say it all, with Goldsman and Paramount clearly not messing around, with »

It was recently announced that Paramount Pictures, as well as Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura selected Akiva Goldsman to head a "writers room" in charge of developing "Transformers" sequels and spin-offs. Deadline is now reporting on who is part of this "writers room" and they are some of the biggest names in sci-fi. The list includes Robert Kirkman ("Walking Dead" creator), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man), Zak Penn (Pacific Rim 2), and Jeff Pinkner (Amazing Spider-Man 2, "Lost"). More writers are expected to be added. The "Transformers" franchise is a top priority for Paramount. The last two installments broke the $1 billion mark at box office. »
Director: Brad Bird
Running time: 130 minutes
Synopsis: Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.
What if the world’s best scientists, inventors, artists and craftsmen were gathered up and taken to another world, free to create sensational new ideas away from distractions, politics and greed. Those are the ideologies that seduce young child genius Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson), fresh from inventing an almost-working jet pack in 1946, as he discovers this hidden world, dubbed Tomorrowland, thanks to an invitation from Athena (Raffey Cassidy) who sees Frank’s inventing potential. Fast forward to the present day and an older, wiser, and much grumpier Frank (George Clooney) is living »

Back in March, Paramount announced its plans to form a Transformers shared movie universe using both direct sequels and spin-offs. Producer Akiva Goldsman will head up a “brain trust” to wrangle the various creative threads of each installment, and now he’s found his team.
According to Deadline, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Iron Man scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, Pacific Rim writer Zak Penn and Lost‘s Jeff Pinkner have been brought on board to pen the scripts for the upcoming films. The report cites them as “Goldman’s four-team roster,” which could indicate that they’ve been brought on to work on separate projects.
Now that the brain trust has been assembled, we can expect more news about what films they’ll work on in the near future. As of right now, all we know for sure is that Paramount hopes to have Transformers 5 in »
- James Garcia
It was back in March that we learned Paramount was to look beyond making mere sequels to Transformers movies, in favour of going down a broader cinematic universe route. Thus, whilst a follow-up to Transformers: Age Of Extinction is still very much on the cards, the idea is also to explore spin-off features. You never know, we could end up with at least a Transformers film a year if this all goes to plan. That'll go down well.
Anyway, there's been progress. Paramount has assembled a team of writers to bring its Transformers plan to life. We already knew that Akiva Goldsman had signed up to create writer's room for the Transformers cinematic universe, and now we know the identity of five of the writers to sit in it.
