Amazon Prime Makes Exclusive Multi-Year Deal to Stream HBO Classic Series

23 April 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Amazon and Netflix are in an intense race for premium content. Now Amazon.com Inc. has nabbed HBO.  People have speculated about when and how HBO would make its wealth of programming available to consumers on a wider basis separate from its bundled arrangement with the cable companies. They charge consumers high prices for loads of monthly programming that is not premium in addition to high-priced Premium Channels such as HBO and Showtime. This is the first step. Of course, Amazon and HBO are starting out with older content that is no longer fresh.  For the first time, canceled classic HBO series including "The Sopranos," "Rome," "Six Feet Under," "The Wire," "Deadwood," "Big Love," "Eastbound & Down," "Family Tree," "Enlightened," "Treme," and "Oz" plus mini-series "Band of Brothers" and "John Adams" will be available to Amazon Prime subscribers via Amazon's content licensing agreement with HBO. Prime »

HBO, Amazon Prime team up to stream 'The Sopranos,' 'The Wire' & more

23 April 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For cord-cutters who aim to watch the best of television without a cable box (or, in some cases, even a television), HBO has long been the big missing piece of the puzzle. HBO has its own streaming video service, HBO Go, but you can only access it if you already have a cable subscription (or if you have a friend or relative with a subscription who will share their password with you). Cord-cutters ask all the time about the possibility of HBO Go being offered independently, but it would completely undermine HBO's very lucrative business model to do so, and it hasn't happened yet, and likely won't anytime soon. But today in a very big deal for the future of streaming TV — and for the ongoing war for streaming supremacy between Netflix and Amazon (a rare battlefield where Amazon is an underdog) — HBO and Amazon announced an agreement to, »

23 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Amazon announced today that it will be the exclusive streaming home for HBO shows, and that HBO Go will be available on Fire TV, Amazon's recently released set-top box. Starting May 21, Amazon Prime will be streaming The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Wire, Rome, Big Love, Deadwood, Eastbound & Down, Family Tree, Enlightened, Treme, Flight of the Conchords, plus some seasons of Boardwalk Empire and True Blood, HBO original movies, HBO comedy specials, miniseries including Band of Brothers and Angels in America, and several documentaries. Girls, The Newsroom, and Veep will eventually make their way to Amazon, too. (The announcement does not mention two of HBO's notable series: Sex and the City and Game of Thrones. Hm.) "Suck on that, Netflix," the press release might as well have included. Netflix has made no secret of its desire to be the new HBO; CEO Reed Hastings told GQ last year that "The »

HBO Cuts Exclusive Licensing Deal with Amazon

23 April 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has entered into a multiyear pact with Amazon.com that makes the e-commerce company’s Prime Instant Video the exclusive online-based subscription VOD service to offer past seasons of the premium cabler’s originals like “The Sopranos” and “The Wire.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed; it covers only the U.S. Under the agreement, Amazon has exclusive Svod rights for select HBO programming. That includes full seasons of “The Sopranos,” “Six Feet Under,” “The Wire,” “Big Love,” “Deadwood,” “Eastbound & Down,” “Family Tree,” “Enlightened,” “Treme,” early seasons of “Boardwalk Empire” and “True Blood,” as well as miniseries like “Band of Brothers” and “John Adams.”

Deal marks the first time HBO programming has been licensed to an online-only subscription streaming service — and it’s a big win for Amazon in its rivalry with Netflix, the Svod category leader. All the programming covered under the licensing deal with Amazon will remain on all HBO platforms, »

'Stage Fright' filmmakers talk Meat Loaf, Minnie Driver, and musical mayhem -- Exclusive Video

17 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How gory is the new slasher movie Stage Fright? This gory: During her post-shoot Adr recording session, actress Minnie Driver wouldn’t even watch her own, very early demise. “It was too gruesome for her,” says director Jerome Sable.

So why did Driver agree to appear in the film in the first place? “She had been in The Phantom of the Opera, the film version ,” explains Sable. “So I appealed to her on that level.”

Oh, right. There’s something we forgot to mention about Stage Fright. In addition to being a full-on, blood-soaked horror flick, the film is also a full-fledged, »

Will 'Turn' continue Emmy streak for AMC?

8 April 2014 5:31 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Over the years, AMC has had 11 scripted series and miniseries, including three that preceded “Mad Men.” All of them have scored at least one Emmy nomination. With that incredible track record in mind, what will be the fate of “Turn,” AMC’s newest drama? “Turn” is set during the American Revolutionary War, which immediately gives it a leg up for the Creative Arts Emmys. Design categories tend to favor period pieces because of the obvious craft that goes into recreating different times in history. -Break- set “The Borgias” to be much of an Emmy player. And while it was never nominated for an acting Emmy or for Best Drama, it racked up three wins from 16 nominations in just three seasons on the air. To put that into perspective, “Big Love,” “Dexter,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Heroes” and “House& »

Review: HBO's 'Silicon Valley' highlights the best of Mike Judge

4 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Silicon Valley presented in the terrific new HBO comedy of the same name (it debuts Sunday night at 10) is a kind of Wild West for nerds: a lawless territory where they can be among their own kind rather than struggle to fit into a more structured world that doesn't understand them, and a place where they can seek massive fortune along the way.  That vision of the Valley also fits HBO itself in a way, since it's long been a place where creative types with idiosyncratic personalities and specific, uncompromising creative visions could go to find success in a safer, more wide-open environment. It's where David Chase could go when he was on the verge of quitting the TV business altogether and tell the story of a wiseguy in therapy. It's where David Milch could go to be given the absolute freedom to succeed so beautifully with "Deadwood" (and »

‘Sabotage’ is soaked in blood, testosterone, tension, and maturity

29 March 2014 8:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sabotage

Written by David Ayer and Skip Woods

Directed by David Ayer

USA, 2014

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s newest film, Sabotage, is violent. Violent in a way that they rarely make ’em anymore. Violent in a way that only the star of The Terminator and Total Recall can get away with. Violent in a way that will turn off a not-insignificant portion of the audience. But those who are turned away will be missing out on the most mature and fully realized film that the Austrian titan has yet made.

Schwarzenegger plays the leader of an elite DEA strike team, who break down the doors of major drug cartels with military precision. But they’re also crooked as hell, and when an attempt to rip off a cartel goes wrong, they find themselves dying one by one and with nobody to trust. An impressive collection of talent is on hand as the DEA agents – Josh Holloway, »

Nicolas Cage’s ‘Left Behind’ Set for Oct. 3 Release (Exclusive)

28 March 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Religious drama “Left Behind,” starring Nicolas Cage, has been set for an Oct. 3 release in the U.S. via Stoney Lake Entertainment.

The film, centered on the well-known Biblical-themed books by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim Lahaye, will come into the market at a time when faith-based movies are proliferating.

“We’re seeing a number of big, biblical movies on the calendar this year, particularly ‘Son of God,’ ‘Noah’ and ‘Exodus,’” said “Left Behind” producer Paul Lalonde, chairman of Stoney Lake. “What makes ‘Left Behind’ different is that it is a contemporary story that could actually happen at any moment. It’s also a historical account in a sense, because it’s based on a true story, it just hasn’t happened yet. So it’s very important to us that the core story not be changed.”

Left Behind,” which carries Cage a $16 million budget, was shot in Louisiana last »

New Season Of Wigs With Julia Stiles Leaves YouTube, Heads To Hulu

19 March 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Wigs was one of the original recipients of a very large check from YouTube back in 2011 when the video sharing site first launched its Original Channels Initiative. Since then, the collection of dramatic, online video stories created by Jon Avnet (Black Swan, Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business), Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment, Big Love), and Jake Avnet has gone on to encompass “15 high-end original series, 7 short films and 10 documentaries” all featuring well-known females in leading roles. The production shop has also received funding from Fox. Meanwhile, YouTube has removed all references to its Original Channels Initiative and isn’t funding new programming the same way it once was. With an influx of cash from a major broadcast network and performances from traditional talent like Julia Stiles, Troian Bellisario, Jennifer Beals, Jennifer Garner, Virginia Madsen, Dakota Fanning, and more, it’s not surprising that Wigs is ditching YouTube for Hulu. »

Noel Edmonds v Jeremy Paxman: The funniest moments

18 March 2014 5:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The BBC needs saving, according to Noel Edmonds. And apparently the man who gave us Mr Blobby, Telly Addicts and Noel's HQ is the man to save it.

Noel appeared on Newsnight on Monday night (March 17) to offer a deal (or should that be no deal) with the broadcaster, claiming that he was prepared to give the kiss of life to the corporation.

Thankfully, his generous offer came up against Jeremy Paxman, who was in a particularly derisory mood. What followed was hilarious television.

1. Paxman: "What do you think is the notional value of the BBC if it can be bought?" Noel: "I have absolutely no idea."

Ding, ding. Round one to Paxman.

2. Paxman: "Like-minded people? What, a lot of... with the greatest of respect, lots of blokes with beards who present afternoon television programmes. Who are these like-minded people?"

Noel claims to have a team of financial backers called Project Reith. »

9 TV Stars Who Horribly Botched Their Big Leap Into Films

17 March 2014 3:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

Aaron Paul became a critically acclaimed actor while appearing in a recurring role on the television series Big Love and earned even more praise – and won two Emmy Awards – for his starring role on Breaking Bad. So why is it that the movie Need for Speed, which starred Paul, underperformed in U.S. theaters this past weekend?

Just because Paul is an award-winning actor on television does not mean audiences were going to pack the theaters to see his movie. In fact, there is a long history of wildly popular television stars who fail in their attempt to transition to movie stardom. In many cases, these TV stars made poor choices when it came to film roles. In other instances, viewers simply had no interest in seeing these actors play anything else but their beloved TV characters.
