The Oprah Winfrey Network has ordered a megachurch drama straight to series.
“Greenleaf” comes from the mind of writer-producer Craig Wright (“Six Feet Under,” “Lost”) and explores the titular family and its Memphis megachurch, which acts as the center of a community for thousands of predominantly African-American parishioners. Scandals and secrets lie beneath its sprawling surface, however. The series is a multigenerational family drama at heart.
“When I first read the script, I instantly felt an affinity for the characters and loved Craig’s creative vision for a fictional drama on an epic scale,” Oprah Winfrey said. “This show is going to be a fun ride and will hopefully have viewers on the edge of their pews week after week.”
Wright was also executive producer for FX’s “Tyrant,” another series following a family with dark secrets.
“To tell this potentially explosive story with Oprah, a partner who has as »

“Lost” writer and producer Craig Wright is teaming with Lionsgate on a new Own megachurch drama series, “Greenleaf.” Here is the official series’ description: Like so many megachurches in America, Greenleaf is more than just a house of worship. It’s a home. It’s the center of the community for the thousands of predominantly African-American members who attend services there. But beneath its steeple lies a den of iniquity — greed, adultery, sibling rivalry and conflicting values — a multigenerational matrix of deception that involves the church’s founding family, but also extends to the congregation and prominent members of the Memphis community and beyond. »

After 19 years, Tom Cruise's first major franchise is still one of Hollywood's best.
As Ethan Hunt, the star turned himself into an action hero with 1996's "Mission: Impossible" -- going Full Cruise with all the running, punching and jumping onto a bullet train from (naturally) an exploding helicopter. The first film was a huge hit, spawning five sequels -- all from different directors, as the series aims to give each "Mission" its own unique fingerprint.

"Mission: Impossible" (1996)

Netflix did not have Sense8-tional news for fans of the twisty freshman thriller at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday.
Many assumed the show’s TCA panel would kick off with a Season 2 renewal announcement. Instead, executive producer J. Michael Straczynski told reporters that he’s “still awaiting word” about a pickup, adding, “We’re cautiously optimistic, but, ultimately, it’s Netflix’s call.”

A mysterious beast menaces an upstate New York hamlet in “Dark Was the Night,” a well-crafted horror pic that compensates (at least to a point) for its lack of original ideas with nice atmospherics and judicious restraint. This sophomore directorial feature for indie producer Jack Heller reps an improvement on his first, 2011’s “Enter Nowhere,” though if that three-hander thriller was ultimately overdependent on gimmicky narrative twists, Tyler Hisel’s screenplay here could have used a few more complications. Opening theatrically July 24, simultaneous with VOD and iTunes launch, “Night” should connect with genre fans primarily via home formats, with decent sales prospects in horror-friendly markets.
The prologue shows a logging foreman going to look for two men who failed to clock out at quitting time, only to meet the same violent (but as yet murky) fate they did. Then we move 90 miles south to Maiden Woods, a rural burg where precious little happens, »

We begin tonight’s Mistresses recap with a trip back to 1987 — when Murder, She Wrote and Moonlighting ranked among the Top 10 network shows, Fatal Attraction burned up the box office and the lilting voice of Suzanne Vega dominated radio for a minute. How did that song go, again?

Those of you who caught Marvel's latest blockbuster Ant-Man will have been introduced to classic comic book character The Wasp for the first time.
Though the original character Janet van Dyne was only glimpsed briefly in flashback (and teased with Evangeline Lilly in the post-credits scene), director Peyton Reed has made it pretty clear that the character is still alive in the quantum realm.
But who could play Janet in future McU movies? Michael Douglas has already made the case for Catherine Zeta-Jones in the role, and now Evangeline Lilly (who plays Janet's daughter Hope) has thrown a new name into the mix.
