Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months . December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters. And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you. Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

10.18 Book Of The Damned
Last time, we had Bobby back with Sam and Cas for a heavenly jailbreak to try and find a way to stop the Mark of Cain destroying Dean; this week, it's Charlie's turn. Having found the Book of the Damned, Charlie's being tracked around the world and manages to get hold of the boys when she hits Des Moines. With Rowena's recent revelation that the Mark is a curse, coupled with Charlie's knowledge that the Book can create and undo any damnation in existence. Cas and Metatron are also on the road to find Cas' grace and restore it to him, but the Scribe keeps on stalling and seems more interested in Alanis Morissette and waffles.
Not only to we get Charlie back, we also got »
It's been awhile since writer and director Spike Lee had a film that wowed me. Though I'd call myself a fan of Lee's previous efforts such as Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, School Daze and The 25th Hour, his recent efforts just haven't measured up to his potential. In fact, I would say that the last great film Lee made was Inside Man back in 2006. But his next project sounds promising as The Wrap reports Amazon Studios has picked up Lee's next drama called Chiraq. And right now Lee is hoping to land Samuel L. Jackson, Common, Jeremy Piven and rapper Kanye West for the ensemble cast. So what's the new film about? Well, the title refers to a nickname that his been given to the city of Chicago due to the level of corruption and gun violence that continues to rise in the Windy City. If that's still too subtle for you, »

"Brace your boobies." There's plenty of slick heists, from Ocean's Eleven to Inside Man, but the story at the heart of Masterminds doesn't seem to be one of them. In the action comedy from Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), a robbery is planned by a ragtag team of dimwits including Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson, and somehow they get away with it. But that's just where the chaos seems to begin. It's hard to tell what's going on in this chaotic teaser trailer for the comedy, but Jason Sudeikis already seems like he will be the high point of this flick, with the low point being that terrible wig Galifianakis is wearing. Here's the teaser trailer for Jared Hess' Masterminds from YouTube: Masterminds is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Gentlemen Broncos, Nacho Libre) and written by Danny McBride & Jody Hill ("Eastbound & Down") and Chris Bowman & Hubbel Palmer »

Supernatural has definitely become known for killing off fan favorite characters over the years, from John Winchester to Ellen and Jo, but none of the losses hurt as much as Bobby’s death in Season 7 of the series. However, since dying, Bobby has still popped up from time to time on Supernatural, and thanks to Variety, which first reported the news, we know that we will be seeing him again soon, as Jim Beaver will be returning to Supernatural for an upcoming Season 10 episode. Beaver will make a guest appearance in the April 1 episode of Supernatural, which is titled “Inside Man.” According to Variety, in that installment, “Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Castiel (Misha Collins) need a little help from someone in heaven, so they turn to Bobby (Beaver). Elsewhere, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) face off.” As mentioned above, Bobby was probably (no, definitely) Supernatural‘s most beloved… »

In the episode, titled “Inside Man,” Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Castiel (Misha Collins) need a little help from someone in heaven, so they turn to Bobby (Beaver). Elsewhere, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) face off.
Beaver’s beloved character, Bobby Singer, was killed in the season seven episode “Death’s Door,” but has made several reappearances in spirit form since then. Beaver last appeared on screen in the season nine premiere “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here” as a manifestation of Sam’s subconscious.
Beaver is currently starring in the play “Verdigris” (which the thesp also wrote) at Theatre West in Los Angeles. He’ll next be seen on the big screen in Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak,” alongside Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain. »

The Divergent Series: Insurgent opened north of $50 million this weekend, which was easily enough to take first place away from Cinderella.The other new openers weren't so hot: The Gunman bombed with $5 million, while Do You Believe? opened to a fraction of God's Not Dead's debut.Insurgent opened to $52.3 million, which is off slightly from its predecessor's $54.6 million on this same weekend last year. While it would have been unreasonable to expect a Twilight type bump from the first to second installment, it did feel like this franchise had some room to grow. Unfortunately, it looks like Divergent will wind up like The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, two young-adult franchises where there just wasn't a ton of domestic gains after the first outing (yes, the final Harry Potter set a high mark for the franchise, but that was a decade later with the addition of 3D pricing).Insurgent's audience was 60 percent female, »

The Killing, 1956.
Directed by Stanley Kubrick.
A group of men plan to steal money from a local race track, scrupulously planning the heist, and coming across a host of obstacles.
The Killing is rarely cited when referencing heist films such as Inside Man and Ocean’s Eleven, yet it is deeply imbedded in their – and many others’ – genetics. Coming from the great Stanley Kubrick, expect a film as carefully constructed as the caper within it. Even with a story that now seems standard, The Killing has barely aged, and despite some predictability (mostly thanks to a number of contemporary films copying its style) the finale packs a punch.
Building up to a perfectly devised conclusion, The Killing relies on a motif of meticulousness, with the loud diegetics of ticking clocks, the constant criss-crossing of people, »
