Amazon Scraps Expensive David O. Russell Drama In Light of Weinstein Scandal

13 October 2017 6:38 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Amazon made a pricey $160 million bet on a new series from director David O. Russell starring Julianne Moore and Robert De Niro. But now it’s folding those cards.

The streaming service announced late Friday that the untitled project wouldn’t be moving forward in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Weinstein Co. was a producer on the untitled series, the details of which had been kept under wraps. The decision to cancel production also came a day after Amazon Studios boss Roy Price, who picked up the show, was placed on indefinite leave due to sexual harassment allegations.

Orlando Bloom to lead Amazon’s fantasy series Carnival Row

27 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May it was announced that Amazon has given an eight-episode order to Carnival Row, a new fantasy-noir series from Rene Echevarria (Star Trek), Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim) and director-producer Paul McGuigan (Victor Frankenstein), and now comes word that Orlando Bloom has signed on to lead the cast of the show.

Variety reports that Bloom will play Rycroft Philostrate, “a police inspector investigating the murder of a faerie showgirl on Carnival Row, a neo-Victorian city in which mythical creatures, fleeing their war-torn homeland, have gathered. Rycroft is not supposed to care about the death of another faerish refugee, but he does, and getting to the bottom of what happened to her will come at a big cost.”

The project marks Bloom’s first series regular role on TV, although he has made several guest appearances over the years in the likes of Casualty, Midsomer Murders, Extras and Easy. He »

Robert De Niro on Playing Bernie Madoff and Why His Amazon Drama "Will Be a Ride"

17 August 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

More than 50 years into his storied career, Robert De Niro just added a new title to his résumé: Emmy nominee. The two-time Oscar winner recently earned his first nomination, for best actor in a limited series or movie, for his turn as Ponzi scheme mastermind Bernie Madoff in the acclaimed HBO film The Wizard of Lies.

And it could just be the beginning for De Niro. While he's only previously appeared in bit TV parts, such as when he played himself on 30 Rock and Extras, the actor will next star opposite Julianne Moore in David O. Russell's mafia »

Blu-ray Review – Ronin (1998)

14 August 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ronin, 1998.

Directed by John Frankenheimer.

Starring Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone, Sean Bean, Michael Lonsdale, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgård, and Skipp Sudduth.

Synopsis:

A group of mercenaries are hired by Irish terrorists to retrieve a case to stop it falling into Russian hands.

In case you didn’t know, ronin are Samurai warriors whose masters have been killed, leaving the warriors free to roam the land as swords-for-hire to anybody willing to pay them. The movie Ronin informs you of this in the title cards so you could be forgiven for thinking this is going to be a bloodthirsty martial arts epic in the vein of Shogun Assassin until you are thrown into a Paris bistro as a ragtag group of shifty characters are assembling. We don’t know them, they don’t know each other and only one person knows why they are there – that person being »

Diana Rigg: TV’s Sexiest Woman to Mrs. James Bond to ‘Game of Thrones’

14 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On July 16, “Game of Thrones,” the medieval fantasy for people who don’t normally like medieval fantasies, begins its seventh season on HBO. The battle scenes and the dragons are epic, but the series’ success is mostly due to the vivid characters created by George R.R. Martin and the actors.

Especially notable are the powerful women played by Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey — and Diana Rigg.

Rigg, whose birthday arrives a few days after the season premiere — she was born July 20, 1938 — plays Olenna Tyrell, aka the Queen of Thorns. To younger audiences, Rigg is best known for “Thrones,” her role as Mrs. James Bond, and a “Dr. Who” episode. But others remember the TV show that shot her to stardom: “The Avengers” (the real “Avengers,” long before the Marvel team), which was a tongue-in-cheek British spy actioner.

For two seasons, 1965-67, Rigg played Emma Peel, who often wore skin-tight catsuits as she outwitted and outfought evil masterminds. Emma »

Digital Review: The Lego Batman Movie

5 June 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Starring: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes

Director: Chris McKay

Synopsis: In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman (Will Arnett) – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

“You can’t be a hero if you only care about yourself.”

The Lego Batman Movie has arrived on the home formats following a hugely successful release in cinemas earlier this year. We first saw Will Arnett’s version of the Caped Crusader in 2014’s The Lego Movie, a huge smash at the box-office worldwide, and the actor reprises the role here. »

Emmy Contenders: Time to Shake Up Lead Actor Races

31 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The lead actor Emmy races could be ripe for new blood this year, from standbys looking for their first win to debuts that dazzle. But who would get the call?

First let’s look at the reigning champs. Last year, Rami Malek scored for USA’s phenomenon “Mr. Robot” in the drama field, but the second season hasn’t driven the same intrigue. Jeffrey Tambor, meanwhile, could be in the middle of a dynasty run for his work in Amazon’s “Transparent,” but peak TV is pushing all comedy categories to the brink — there may be too many options piling up.

Who’s overdue? An argument could obviously be made for Kevin Spacey in Netflix’s “House of Cards.” He’s been nominated for all four seasons so far and even won back-to-back Screen Actors Guild Awards in that stretch. Yet he hasn’t heard his name called on TV’s biggest night.

The 20 Best TV Comedies of the 21st Century, Ranked

23 May 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A comedy on TV can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Some see the genre in its basest form: a show that makes us laugh. Others have expanded the definition (along with the Emmy rules) to include the drama-comedy hybrids, as long as they clock in at around half-an-hour. Still others find comedy in black humor or extra campy nighttime soaps.

But over the last few decades, what makes for great TV comedy has changed just as much as the genre itself. We’ve seen it all, and yet, there’s always something new right around the corner. So before we get too far along, let’s remember the best of what we’ve see so far, across the ever-changing landscape of television.

[Selection Criteria: We’ve stuck to shows that aired a majority of their episodes after the year 2000, and we’ve only included scripted programming. Also, in an effort to highlight more live-action series, we’ve eliminated animated comedies from contention. Finally, while definition of a “comedy” is somewhat elastic, if the show was predominantly funny or widely considered a comedy, we deemed it eligible for this list.]

The Best TV Guest Stars Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 March 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Who has been the best guest star on a scripted show?

Tim Surette (@timsurette), TV.com

Wayne Brady showing up in body armor and riding a horse on Syfy’s post-apocalyptic disaster disaster “Aftermath” needs to be mentioned somewhere in this critics’ roundup, so here it is. But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »

Great Job, Internet!: Ian McKellen has some advice for Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway

3 March 2017 9:50 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

British thespian Ian McKellen is a man of practicality. Why complicate things with cocktail words and ambiguities when you can just, well, cut through all the bullshit? It’s like that scene in Extras, where he confides to Ricky Gervais’ Andy that the secret to acting is simply pretending to be the character you’re portraying.

After the Oscars screw-up heard ’round the world, McKellen reached out to Best Picture presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway via Twitter, where he gave them some simple and, well, practical advice.

Dear Faye and Warren:

Next time, do what I always do when presenting. Backstage, before you go on ... see image for more. pic.twitter.com/PxWHYVn8BR

Ian McKellen (@IanMcKellen) March 2, 2017

Sounds awfully simple, right? If it were, though, we wouldn’t have the hilarity that is Adele Dazeem, so maybe it’s advice best left ignored.

Film Review: ‘Table 19’

1 March 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Table 19” is an under-imagined, overly-pleased-with-itself comedy about half a dozen “colorful characters” who meet while sharing a table at a wedding reception. The premise sounds like it has possibilities (Robert Altman, of course, set an entire movie at a wedding), but the strangers-at-a-table concept turns out to be a thin excuse to cobble together what might have been the pilot episode for a glibly forgettable TV series. This is the sort of movie in which the characters start off telling fibs and tossing off rim-shot jibes, but within 45 minutes they’ve become a makeshift “family” of eccentrics who’ve got each other’s backs. Almost everything that happens in “Table 19” rings cloyingly false. The movie wants to make you laugh and cry, but you may be too busy cringing.

In theory, it should be a redeeming feature that the movie stars Anna Kendrick, whose presence will certainly lend »

Ricky Gervais on Atheism, Donald Trump, and the Return of David Brent

1 February 2017 11:53 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been over 13 years since Ricky Gervais bade farewell to David Brent, the middling middle manager on the original U.K. version of “The Office” that launched his career. Since then, he’s had other successful series (“Extras,” “Derek”), dabbled in movies (“The Invention of Lying”), and sold out venues with his standup tour. Yet the character who considered himself “friend first, boss second…probably entertainer third” has never really gone away. “There wasn’t a day that went by where I wasn’t managing the estate of David Brent,” Gervais notes. “There were remakes around the world, I would get requests every day to show clips, or something would could up with licensing.”

After short appearances on the American version of “The Office” or at “Comic Relief,” Gervais has brought Brent back in full force with the release of “David Brent: Life on the Road.” Written and directed by Gervais, »
