How Mr. Robot Became One of TV’s Most Visually Striking Shows

2 September 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Tod Campbell joined Mr. Robot as director of photography on its second episode, he had what Marlo Stanfield from The Wire might refer to as “one of them good problems” in deciding how to shoot it. Lead actor Rami Malek’s eyes were almost too gorgeous. “My God, Rami? I could put a light a hundred yards away and his eyes would pick it up,” says the veteran cinematographer of shows from Friday Night Lights to Sleepy Hollow. This ocular casting coup helped determine how Campbell came to shape the distinctive look of creator Sam Esmail’s twisty, anti-capitalist hacker drama, one of the summer’s standout shows (its finale airs on USA tonight). And you don’t need Malek-size eyes to see that Mr. Robot composes its shots like nothing else on television today. Fitting for a show about those occupying society’s technological substrata, Mr. Robot’s »

X-Men’s Gambit Spin-Off Movie: Everything You Need To Know

25 August 2015 7:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Gambit isn’t the most prominent character in the X-Men universe, but since his debut in 1990, he’s definitely become a firm fan favourite.

A thief hailing from New Orleans, the character’s a charmer with the ability to charge objects via telekinesis, thus rendering them explosive. That often includes using playing cards as projectiles, but he also exercises extreme proficiency in hand to hand combat. He’s the match of almost any other mutant out there.

Gambit made his big-screen bow in 2009’s X-Men: Origins Wolverine, portrayed by Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch. The actor received fair notices for his work, but the film itself was heavily derided, leading to a complete rethink from Fox regarding a potential spin-off adventure. Eventually, after campaigning for the part, Channing Tatum was cast as Kitsch’s replacement, but that’s not all there is to know about this iteration of the beloved mutant. »

Adrianne Palicki to Star as Mockingbird in ABC's 'Marvel's Most Wanted'

21 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Former "Friday Night Lights" actress Adrianne Palicki is set to star in a new Marvel series on ABC. The alphabet network has given a pilot order for "Marvel's Most Wanted," which will give two standout characters from "Agents of Shield" their own series.  Palicki would star as her current Shield character, Bobbi Morse (Aka Mockingbird), a double agent whose loyalties are reserved for her own causes -- and whose fierceness has earned her the admiring nickname "Demonic Hell-Beast." The other "Shield" character to join her is Lace Hunter (played by Nick Blood), Bobbi's ex-husband.  Unfortunately for Palicki fans, ABC isn't fast-tracking the series. Shooting isn't expected to start until at least early 2016.  [via THR, Deadline]

After months of back and forth, Variety reports that ABC is still interested in an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff starring the Friday Night Lights alum and her onscreen romantic interest Lance Hunter (Nick Blood).

And the name for the potential show is already epic: Marvel's Most Wanted!

Film Review: ‘The Park Bench’

19 August 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Say this much for “The Park Bench”: It delivers on its title. Viewers get all the bench they can handle in writer-director Ann LeSchander’s exceedingly modest two-hander, but there’s a shortage of compelling conversation from its occupants. Though broken up by chapter titles, bits of animation and the occasional flashback, the vast majority of the action rides the pine, pairing a high-strung tutor with an earnest literature student for a flirty semester. Nicole Hayden and Walter Perez are winning in the lead roles, but LeSchander barely skims the surface of her book-smarts and his street-smarts, much less the cultural forces that keep them apart. A wisp of a romantic comedy at 78 minutes, the pic stands to come and go quickly from theaters, too, and its ancillary future seems limited to a showreel for its first-time filmmaker and stars.

Box Office Sabermetrics: The Taylor Kitsch Syndrome Claims a New Victim

17 August 2015 8:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Box Office Sabermetrics is a weekly column that will attempt to apply the statistical analysis Sabermetrics, used in Baseball, to the box office results each weekend.

There are a few things of note going on in the top 10 this past weekend, first and foremost that Straight Outta Compton just made a ton of money. Like, nearly-twice-its-budget-just-domestically ton of money. It’s set the new domestic box office record for an R-Rated opening in August. That’s great for many reasons: a bright future for its young stars, F. Gary Gray is relevant again, and hopefully this will encourage more high-profile films about the rap and hip-hop community.

But looking down the list, something is amiss with the low receipts for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which means that’s two straight franchise starters that have bombed for star Armie Hammer. A very disconcerting question arises: Is Armie Hammer suffering from the Taylor Kitsch syndrome? »

Austin Mahone's Major American Horror Story Fail—Yes, Connie Britton Was on It!

14 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

American Horror Story superfan Austin Mahone apparently isn't that big of a superfan? The singer was on Watch What Happens Live alongside Connie Britton, she of Nashville, Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story and perfect hair fame. But Mahone didn't recognize Britton for her Emmy-nominated role in Ahs: Murder House. You know, the first season. You know, she was one of the main characters… "I got my tonsils out and I couldn't do anything for two weeks, so I saw American Horror Story on Netflix," Mahone explained. "I was like, 'You know what? I'm going to watch every season,' and I knocked three seasons out in three days…Yeah, I felt terrible." So maybe it was »

Emmys: With Bryan Cranston Gone, Veteran Actors Face Off Against Newbies

13 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Matt LeBlanc says when both he and former high school buddy Louis C.K. were vying for lead comedy actor last year as Jim Parsons’ name was announced at the Emmy ceremony, they looked at each other and mouthed, “You suck!”

Perhaps this year, both C.K. and LeBlanc’s chances have increased since the incumbent is out of play.

“Not me. That’s the name that will be called,” says LeBlanc with a good-natured laugh. “I focus on my work and I’m proud of my show and the writers getting nominated, but it gets a little surreal every year getting nominated. We only have one more season, so maybe the last time’s the charm.”

Whoever takes the lead comedy actor trophy this year will be a first-time winner in the category since four-time winner Parsons was not nominated. So it could finally be the year for C.K. »

Emmy Drama Lead Actor Showdown: Jon Hamm vs. Bob Odenkirk

13 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s little doubt that Jon Hamm is the sentimental favorite in the race. That he has never won the trophy for his nuanced portrayal of Don Draper in “Mad Men” seems an embarrassing historical oversight — even in the year of the acclaimed “Suitcase” episode, when “Friday Night Lights’” Kyle Chandler played the role of spoiler. Ironic, then, that Chandler’s been nominated again this year, Hamm’s last chance to finally claim what’s long eluded him. But the real threat to his legacy may come from Bob Odenkirk, who proved his dramatic chops as the lawyer struggling with his conscience in “Better Call Saul.”

The Odds

Emmy voters love nothing more than making history, and Hamm may well ride the wave of nostalgia for “Mad Men” straight into the record books on the heels of his eighth nomination for the role. Witness last year’s coronation of “Breaking Bad, »

Best of Late Night TV: Ruby Rose's Justin Bieber Look and Connie Britton's 'Friday Night Lights' Wine Drinking

13 August 2015 12:09 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Look, being Superman isn't easy. Between the pressure to have a six pack and the pressure to, like, save lives all day, Henry Cavill has it rough. His dietary restrictions are intense to say the least, and he discussed them with fan-boy Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show," who literally uttered the phrase "your arm is the size of my leg."

Reba McEntire also showed up on "The Tonight Show," and decided to "close up serenade" an audience member. It was weird, but also amazing.

Rita Ora swung by "Late Night" to chat about playing a crack addict in "Southpaw," and discussed the awkward time she got to »
