Opening Night – World Premiere
David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m
David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (Treme, Friday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

Question: Anything at all on the final season of Sons of Anarchy? —Jennifer
Ausiello: Tara’s spirit will loom large throughout the final 13 episodes, but Maggie Siff won’t be embodying that spirit. Asked if the actress might appear in a recreated flashback or as a vision to her widowed hubby, series creator Kurt Sutter tells me, “I’ve never done flashbacks or dream sequences on this show. They tend to pull me out of the reality of a show like this. »

During Comic-Con 2014 last month, ABC presented a special video teasing Season 2 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where Patton Oswalt's Agent Koenig revealed that Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, will be popping up this season. Today, Marvel confirmed that Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Mockingbird, although her affiliation to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team were not revealed.
Take a look at the official press release below.
The Executive Producers of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have sent a Morse code to say they've found their Mockingbird!
Adrianne Palicki will appear as Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, in the second season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- but whether she'll play friend or foe to Coulson and his team, we can't say. Known for her work in Friday Night Lights and G.I. Joe Retaliation, Palicki most recently appeared in several episodes of About a Boy.

The film is directed by Peyton Reed and also stars Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.
From the Press Release
San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Apparently, a little Strain-ing is good for the bottom line.
Related Cable Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Cancelled? What’s on the Bubble?
The Strain, FX’s first original Sunday-night series, drew 12.7 million total viewers for its premiere, according to a network release.
“It is thrilling when you have a show that is a creative and commercial hit, which is a rare accomplishment in this increasingly crowded marketplace,” noted John Landgraf, »
The show behind the billboard of the summer is coming back. The Strain‘s worm in the eyeball billboard scared people around the country and caused a major media backlash. However, it worked in their favor as the vampire based pandemic show took off. The show did so well that FX decided to renew it. The freshman show performed well in ratings, making it what FX considered to be a commerical and creative success. The show has always hoped to reach at least between 3-5 seasons and it looks like it is shaping up to be that way. The show will return in summer of 2015 for 13 new episodes.
Earlier this year Carlton Cuse (the mastermind behind Lost) admitted that they had a story with an end mapped out for The Strain. It is based upon a book series and like his past work, he has made it clear that he »

Rudd looks appropriately un-heroic here, sporting a dark hoodie, black gloves and an eyebrow bandage. We know that Lang was quite the troublemaker before running into former Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) though (who gives him the Ant-Man tech and trains him to be a superhero in order to pull of a dangerous heist), so he definitely looks the part in this first photo.
This new image follows yesterday’s casting announcement that saw Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, T.I., and John Slattery join the oft-troubled superhero project. It’s announcements and reveals like these that will win back some of the disgruntled and skeptical audiences that turned away from the film following Edgar Wright’s departure back in June, and with production now underway, »

Here’s your first official look at star Paul Rudd in Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” Alas, he’s not wearing the Ant-Man costume. I guess it’s going to be a while, since the movie did just announce the official start of production yesterday. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. The film stars Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, and Michael Douglas (“Behind The Candelabra,” “Wall Street”) as his mentor Dr. Hank Pym and Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” “Lost”) as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym. Peyton Reed directs the film, »
Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see »

His little cameo at the end of the impressive Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol was possibly a little nod to future team-ups and so this news isn’t exactly a surprise but will see him gloriously to the great little cast of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg. Sadly it seems that Paula Patton won’t be returning, even though she seriously kicked ass in the previous mission. I’m wondering if she couldn’t get over the death of Sawyer from Lost, or the fellow recruit played by Josh Holloway that she lost. No bad pun intended.
I can’t wait to see Imf agent Luther Stickell once again as this franchise I’ve really enjoyed since it came back in »

Penny and Desmond still cannot get it together! Lost's Sonya Walger has been cast in a "potentially recurring" role on Scandal, just two seasons after her soul mate, Desmond (er, Henry Ian Cusick), left the very same show at the end of season one, E! News has confirmed. Of course, we know absolutely nothing about her top-secret role, but maybe there will be a boat involved, in order to help us TV journalists with our love of Lost references. Walger will simultaneously continue to appear on Parenthood, whether you want her to or not, as Joel's coworker, Meredith. (Sorry, Julia!) Walger isn't the only awesome TV star heading to fictional Washington D.C. for »
