For a show that started its life in orbit, “The 100” clearly isn’t content just to go around in circles. In fact, this CW sci-fi drama earns points strictly for forward momentum, launching into its second season featuring a fast-evolving narrative, with the space-faring human population returning to Earth and facing a new set of problems. Not everything works, and the performances remain a trifle uneven. But with so many post-apocalyptic cliches being juggled simultaneously, it’s certainly a watchable and ambitious undertaking, albeit one whose main job will be to defy gravity by not yielding too much of “Arrow’s” lead-in.
Just to recap, nearly 100 years after nuclear near-annihilation, thousands of survivors have stayed alive aboard the Ark, a collection of linked-together space stations. But with the system failing, those in charge first decided to jettison 100 youthful prisoners down to the planet’s surface (hence the name), testing »

It’s been 67 years since Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo was blacklisted in the movie-making industry as a result of investigations by the House Un-American Activities Committee of the time, but his story will soon unfold on the big screen with Bryan Cranston in the lead. Directed by Jay Roach (Meet The Parents) and written by John McNamara (The New Adventures Of Superman), Trumbo has now added rising star Adewale Akkinuoye-Agbaje to its cast – bringing with him the recognition borne of his previous roles in Lost, Oz, Pompeii and Thor: The Dark World.
Trumbo tells the story of this troubled screenwriter, who was part of the so-called ‘Hollywood Ten’ (made up of screenwriters and directors) that were cited for contempt of Congress in 1947 for refusing to testify to the committee about their alleged involvement with the Communist Party. He was convicted, and served 11 months in Ashland Federal Prison in 1950, leaving him »

Lost co-star Mark Pellegrino stars in this very dark looking thriller called Bad Turn Worse, in which he plays a very bad dude. We have the first trailer for the movie to share with you, and it seems like one of those crazy off-beat films that I would enjoy watching. Here's the synopsis:
After a weekend of partying with stolen money, three Texas teens (Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman, and Mackenzie Davis) find themselves indebted to a sociopathic criminal named Giff (Mark Pellegrino in a breakout performance). To pay their debt, Giff forces the teens to steal from his boss, a money-laundering gangster named Big Red (William Devane). Things go from bad to worse when betrayal, distrust, and corruption complicate an already dangerous plan. This stylish and emotional crime thriller is the stunning directorial debut of Simon and Zeke Hawkins. An official selection of the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

The Coen Bros. – Joel and Ethan – are among that rarified group of filmmakers whose every project is eagerly anticipated with the assumption of excellence. This writing and directing team have been producing the highest quality cinema for over thirty years, and have almost never put a foot wrong. Inevitably, their work attracts the most interesting and talented casts and, though they often collaborate with particular performers regularly, they never shy away from adding new people to their routine roster. Their next film, Hail, Caesar! is no exception.
Set amid the Hollywood studio system of the 1950s, Hail, Caesar! follows Eddie Mannix – a ‘fixer’ whose own talents are tested when a star disappears during filming. George Clooney makes his fourth Coen Bros. appearance (after O Brother Where Art Thou, Intolerable Cruelty and Burn After Reading) in the lead role as Mannix, and will be supported by fellow Coen Bros favourites Josh Brolin »

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who Lost fans will remember as Mr. Eko, has signed on to star in Season 5 of HBO's Game of Thrones. The actor is playing a brand new character named Malko, who doesn't originate in the George R.R. Martin novels.
No further details were given regarding this character, and it isn't known if Malko has any alliances to any particular family or kingdom in Westeros. We reported yesterday that the Season 5 premiere will open with the show's first flashback, but since production has been under way for several months now, it seems unlikely Malko will be a part of that flashback.
The actor joins a massive roster of new cast members who were announced at Comic-Con, including Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell, Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell, Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon, Deobia Oparei as Areo Hotah, Enzo Cilenti as Yezzan, Jessica Henwick as Nymeria ("Nym") Sand, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand, »
Most people would be happy to have an angel watching over their shoulder.
Most people are not Constantine.
In this exclusive clip from NBC’s forthcoming supernatural drama, exorcist-and-all-around-spiritual-wrangler John Constantine (Matt Ryan, The Tudors) gets a visit from a heavenly host named Manny (Harold Perrineau, Lost).
But Constantine’s not happy to see the winged one, and he’s even less pleased to hear about Manny’s mission.
The new series, based on the DC comic, follows Ryan’s tortured character as he fights evil, helps those in need and battles his own demons.

We already know that Jim Corrigan, a.k.a. The Spectre, is heading to NBC’s upcoming DC TV series Constantine – with Emmett Scanlan (Guardians of the Galaxy) set to portray the character – and now executive producer David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel) has spoken about the possibility of delving further into DC’s supernatural universe during an interview with Screen Rant. Read what he had to say below…
“I think you’ll see some of those…If the show takes off…even within the first 12 episodes we’ve introduced two or three characters from the broader DC universe that are not just exclusively from Hellblazer. Corrigan has been mentioned, but there’s a couple of other characters we haven’t talked about that will show up as well. If the show takes off and we get our back nine and come back a second season, »
