Boardwalk Empire Renewed for Season 3 by HBO

12 October 2011 10:49 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

HBO has announced the renewal of Boardwalk Empire, its Prohibition-era drama that follows the life of Atlantic City baron Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi). The show, which debuted last season with pilot directed by Martin Scorsese, has been an awards favorite, picking up multiple Emmys, SAG Awards, and Golden Globes for its well-received first season.

While telling the story of the power struggle over Atlantic City and Nucky's bid to hold on to control of the area, Boardwalk Empire has brought several historical figures into the fold (Al Capone, Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano) as well as introduced intricate side plots featuring those in Nucky's orbit (Mrs. Schroeder, Jimmy, Chalky White), whether they want to be there or not. The show stars Buscemi (Fargo), Kelly Macdonald (No Country for Old Men), Michael Pitt (The Dreamers), and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and features the likes of Michael K. Williams (The Wire), Jack Huston »

From vikings to ninjas, here are five wild alien-invasion films that don't involve cowboys

28 July 2011 12:37 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

In "Cowboys & Aliens," director Jon Favreau pits a posse of gunslingers against an extraterrestrial invasion force straight out of a sci-fi nightmare. In many ways, it's a new twist on an old classic, as those pesky creatures from outer space have been wreaking Hollywood havoc for years now, and gtheir efforts definitely haven't been confined to the Old West.

From the age of vikings to the far-flung future, alien invasions have been thwarted by a long list of unlikely defenders from Earth -- many of them even more ill-equipped than the "Cowboys & Aliens" cast. Don't believe me? Here are five examples of films that feature entirely unexpected saviors of the planet we call home.

"Outlander" (2008)

Pre-dating all of the gunslinging and dynamite of "Cowboys & Aliens," this 2008 film features a battle between Norsemen circa 709 A.D. and a monstrous alien that crashed near their village. While the movie didn't receive much attention, »

13 dark fantasy films to watch while you wait for Conan

9 May 2011 7:12 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The fantasy genre has gotten a bad rep over the years and I think I know why. Too many factions of role players, larpers and W.O.W-ers have joined forces over the world wide web to become this massive, unstoppable goliath of an easy target. What was once little groups of in-the-know outcasts playing Magic in highschool hallways is so visible that they've turned it into an easy punchline for bad comedians and films like Role Models or Your Highness to take a stab at. But That's just my theory.

The other downside to fantasy's perceived dorkery is I think it's led to a slowing down of mainstream fantasy film production and the films that do get made that fully embrace their fantasy roots either get savages by critics or dumped onto SyFy. Lord of the Rings is really the only series of films I can think of that got through unscathed. »

Jim Caviezel claims to be a Hollywood outcast after playing Jesus in "The Passion of the Christ"

4 May 2011 2:30 AM, PDT | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

Actor Jim Caviezel is claiming that, after playing Jesus in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, he has become somewhat of an outcast in Hollywood. Judging by movies like Outlander and The Stoning of Soraya M., he may not be exaggerating. Caviezel was in Florida over the weekend, promoting his new audio book of the Bible, Words of Promise, and told the 14,000-capacity First Baptist Church of Orlando that director Mel Gibson had warned him, "You'll never work in this town again," referring to Caviezel taking on the role. And his apparent rejoinder was, "We all have to embrace our crosses." Caviezel was gaining a reputation as an emerging talent after appearing in movies like The Thin Red Line, Frequency, and The Count of Monte Cristo. Then he teamed up with Gibson for The Passion, and though the film ended up making [...] »

Jim Caviezel's Hollywood Golgotha

4 May 2011 2:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Passion of the Christ actor has complained Hollywood shunned him after he played Jesus – but was it really because his performance was so definitive?

If Jim Caviezel is to be believed, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a jobbing actor to play Jesus and continue to eat lunch in Hollywood. Caviezel, so far as most filmgoers are concerned, was last seen being laboriously flayed and nailed in Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ. Since then, he claims, he's been "rejected by my industry" and exiled to such little-seen pictures as Outlander that is billed, rather poignantly, as an Sf thriller in which a space alien eats up some 8th-century Vikings. It's hard not to see a film like Outlander as an actor's own personal Golgotha.

Speaking at the First Baptist Church of Orlando last week, Caviezel said »

Jim Caviezel Off To Savannah

31 January 2011 3:37 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It seems like ages since we saw Jim Caviezel on our screens – he was last spotted as a man who lands on Earth during Viking times and helps battle the alien invader that arrives with him in Outlander – but now he’s snagged the lead in historical drama Savannah.This one will see him fighting 100% fewer extraterrestrial nasties, but does see him paired up with the excellent Chiwetel Ejiofor for the tale of real-life 1900s aristocrat Ward Allen.Talking to a local Georgia website, writer/director Annette Haywood-Carter described the basics: “It’s a story about this very eccentric, bigger-than-life hunter named Ward Allen and his friendship with a freed slave named Christmas Moultrie. This is the perfect movie for Savannah because it really showcases the city’s eccentric characters.”Inspired by John Eugene Cay Jr’s book Duck, Dogs and Friends, the film will also feature Hal Holbrook, The West Wing’s Bradley Whitford, »
