Fifty Shades Freed: Where Have You Seen Boyce Before?

Image Source: Getty / Joe Scarnic Fifty Shades Freed introduces a plethora of minor characters, including the handsome and bestselling author Boyce Fox. Although we only catch him on screen for a minute or two during a meeting with Anastasia, he certainly manages to catch our attention. For those of you who were scratching your head after that scene, wondering why you recognized the actor, we have all the answers. He might be new to the steamy Fifty Shades franchise, but he's no stranger to the big screen. Tyler Hoechlin made his acting debut by snagging roles in smaller films like Family Tree and Train Quest before moving on to one of his most well-known roles to date, as Michael Sullivan Jr. in Road to Perdition. From there, he went on to score a recurring role in the popular television show 7th Heaven before dabbling in the horror genre alongside Amanda Seyfried in Solstice.

The 35-year-old actress responded to Affleck’s statement saying he was “saddened and angered” by stories against Weinstein by some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, tweeted that she “didn’t forget” about the time when the Argo star allegedly grabbed her breast.

“I’m so sorry that happened to you,” a fan wrote to her. “It’s infuriating that people never bring up all the gross,

Tyler Hoechlin Takes Flight as Superman on ‘Supergirl’
Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Tyler Hoechlin!

The star of Richard Linklater’s “Everybody Wants Some!” has just been cast as Superman/Clark Kent on next season of The CW’s “Supergirl.”

Warner Bros. TV had previously announced that Superman would appear at the beginning of “Supergirl’s” second season, as the show moves from CBS to The CW. The plot hasn’t been revealed yet, other than Superman will be visiting his Krypton cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) in National City.

Superman has already made appearances on “Supergirl,” but only as blurry glimpses.

“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Tyler for ages, so this worked out perfectly because Tyler is Superman,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.

Hoechlin will next star in “Stratton.” His other credits include the TV series “Teen Wolf” and “7th Heaven,” as well as the films “Road to Perdition,” “Hall Pass” and “Solstice.”

The casting continues the DC Comics tradition of keeping actors playing the film and TV versions of its characters separate, as Henry Cavill currently plays Superman on the big screen. The announcement also puts to rest speculation that Tom Welling, who played young Clark Kent on “Smallville” for The WB (and later, The CW), might be up for the role.

Trevor Hogg chats with visual effects supervisors Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, Phil Brennan, Todd Shifflett, Bryan Hirota, Nicolas Hernandez, Edson Williams, Steve Moncur and Angela Barson as well as effects supervisor Lindsay MacGowan, Nvizage owner / founder Martin Chamney and creative director Henry Hobson about their work on Snow White and the Huntsman...

“I have a long standing relationship with Rupert [Sanders]; for the last eight years I did a lot of his commercials so when Snow White and the Huntsman [2012] came along he wanted me on the job,” recalls Visual Effects Supervisor Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (Solstice) as to how he came to get involved with the re-imagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale. “At the time I had retired from visual effects and was directing commercials on my own, but the opportunity was too big to refuse.” The two veteran collaborators share a similar creative style and sensibility. “It was more about figuring

'Solstice' Movie Review

by Jamie Zaccharia, MoreHorror.com

Starring Elisabeth Harnois, Shawn Ashmore, Hilarie Burton, and Amanda Seyfried, Solstice is a movie brimming with young stars and chock full of suspense. It's about a group of friends spending their senior week after graduation in a summer houses in the bayou of Louisiana. Megan (whose parents own the place) is still grieving over her twin sister’s suicide 6 months ago and when strange things start happening at the house, Megan thinks her sister is trying to use the power of the Solstice to contact her.

Since Solstice is a mystery movie, it relies on the story instead of boobs and blood. There is a mystery that is not easily detectable, and the clues keep you guessing until the very end. There’s also a lack of a real bad guy for most of the movie that actually improves the film, rather than takes away from it.

Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)

Directed by Russell Mulcahy

Mila Jovovich is back as the genetically altered zombie ass-kicker Alice in a story that gets about as far from the games upon which it’s based as is possible. Still, I didn’t hear anything too terrible about it, and it certainly couldn’t have been worse than the second film in the series, right? Lots of features come on this one, as is Sony’s way. If you’re living ahead of everyone else, it’s out on Blu-Ray the same day, as well, as is the entire trilogy. Buy it here!

Solstice (2007)

The first film Myrick did solo after Blair Witch Project is actually the second to be released (the first was the Raw Feed film Believers). Strange how
