So HBO is coming to Amazon. This is good news, I think, insofar as anything that makes the great shows of the HBO Renaissance available to more people is good news. I’m a TV obsessive of a certain age — definition of “a certain age” freely covering anyone who remembers when “TV is better than movies” was an argument that you had to make, when TV-on-dvd was the technological forefront, and when the notion of “downloading” a TV show didn’t seem needlessly wasteful of valuable hard drive space.
Like several other Of A Certain Age TV Obsessives, I grow »

Our own Vanessa Gomez and Staci Layne Wilson recently had a chance to sit down exclusively with the guys from Radio Silence, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Justin Martinez, Tyler Gillett, and Chad Villella, to talk about the home video release of Devil's Due! Check it out!
20th Century Fox's Devil’s Due features Allison Miller ("Terra Nova") and Zach Gilford ("Friday Night Lights"). It was penned by Lindsay Devlin and directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Radio Silence). Look for it on DVD and Blu-ray on April 29th!
After a mysterious night on their honeymoon, Zach and Samantha McCall find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything on video for posterity, Zach begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially attribute to nerves, but it soon becomes evident the disturbing changes to Samantha’s body and mind have a much more sinister origin.

The film centres around the riots that were sparked by the raid on the titular Greenwich Village club in 1969.
Irvine will play Danny, a young man who experiences a political awakening thanks to the flashpoint that ignited the gay rights movement.
Jones will play an eccentric gay street hustler named Orphan Annie who slowly warms to Danny before being drawn into the Stonewall riots.
A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

Hoping to continue working with their Fantastic Four/Chronicle star, Michael B. Jordan, 20th Century Fox has picked up a pitch by T.J. Fixman for a star vehicle titled Men Who Kill. Said to be an “international Bad Boys,” the project will be produced by Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, with Kenny Goodman exec producing.
We won’t blame you if you’re unfamiliar with Jordan. Although he’s been around for a while now, having had television roles on shows like The Wire, Parenthood and Friday Night Lights, he didn’t really break out until 2012′s Chronicle. Even then, it took another full year for him to really put his name on the map, which he was able to do thanks to his powerful performance in Fruitvale Station.
Now, he’s an extremely hot commodity in Hollywood and is being groomed to become the industry’s next bankable leading man. »

It’s not easy to stick the landing when it comes to series finales. Just ask fans of Dexter and How I Met Your Mother, who continue to debate the merits of those final hours. Which is why it is that much more remarkable when a show receives universal acclaim for its last chapter. Friday Night Lights is one of those shows. The saga of Eric and Tami Taylor (played to perfection by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) and the Dillon Panthers and East Dillon Lions ended on Feb. 9, 2011 when DirecTV aired the final episode. Then it ended again when »

“Roswell” has landed at the Atx Television Festival. Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler, Brendan Fehr and show creator Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) will be reuniting during a session at the TV festival held in Austin, Texas from June 5-8. The WB/Upn series followed a small group of friends who sought to protect the young aliens in their midst. Cancelled in 2002, it has since become a cult hit. It also introduced the world to a young Katherine Heigl, who isn't among the cast members attending the reunion.

Channing Tatum revealed in a recent interview at the MTV Movie Awards that he has met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about playing the mutant Gambit in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Though nothing is official just yet, the actor said that he would “die” to play the role.
“I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him. I hope it [comes together]. You never know it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment.”
Donner has said in the past she would »

In a competitive situation, Parenthood executive producer David Hudgins has signed an overall deal with Sony Pictures TV. Under the two-year pact, he will develop and potentially join existing studio projects.

If the previews for this week’s penultimate episode of Parenthood tell us anything, it’s that we’re going to need even more tissues than normal. And a key factor in that tear-jerking equation is, of course, the return of fan favorite (and love of Amber’s life) Ryan.
Last we saw Ryan, he was re-enlisting after having come to the realization that he is and always will be a soldier. And as an effect of that decision, he and Amber broke off their engagement. But now, after weeks of Amber drowning her sorrows in ice cream and pot, »

Halfway through its second season, Bates Motel has been renewed by A&E for another ten episode run. The engrossing and underrated drama was developed by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Kerry Ehrin (Friday Night Lights), and acts as a prequel of sorts to the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho. The series' greatest strength has been creating a world that leads up to, but isn't dependent, on the story on which it is partially based. Actually, scratch that -- the series' greatest strength is the Emmy-nominated Vera Farmiga, who plays Norma Bates. Farmiga's Norma is crafty, vulnerable, and hypnotic to watch -- she's completely unpredictable as the character and in the way Norma is portrayed. Hit the jump for more on the series (spoiler-free), and its current ratings. According to A&E, Bates Motel's second season premiered with 4.6 million total viewers, with 2.6 million being adults between 18-49, and 2.2 million between 25 and »
