Yvonne Strahovski cast in Astronaut Wives Club

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to HitFix, Yvonne Strahovski (24: Live Another Day, Dexter) has been cast in the upcoming ABC drama Astronaut Wives Club, which will reunite her with Chuck co-creator Josh Schwartz.

The upcoming series is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Lily Koppel, and tells the story of the women behind Nasa’s early astronauts and how they dealt with becoming overnight celebrities just as their husbands prepared for space flight. Strahovski will play Rene Carpenter, the wife of Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter. Carpenter is described as a woman with “modern attitudes [that] are a source of both conflict and courage for the other Astrowives. Over time, Rene finds her own voice and awakens to a higher calling in politics, civil rights and women’s issues.”

Strahovski joins a cast that includes JoAnna Garcia Swisher (The Internship, The Mindy Project) and Odette Annable (Cloverfield, Banshee).

Beyond Fright Review: Cold In July

15 hours ago | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Cold In July

Let’s just start this with an obvious statement: Jim Mickle is one of the best directors working today. Very few filmmakers have a track record as solid as Mickles, a track record of improving more and more with every single release. His 2006 debut, Mulberry Street showed horror fans a brand new take on a subgenre that had been overdone at that point. His followup, Stake Land, took the vampire genre and injected it into a post apocalyptic wasteland, something very different than the vamp films that fans were getting when it was released, in 2010. Mickle last film, 2013’s We Are What We Are (a remake of a Spanish film) wasn’t only a good movie, but one of my absolute favorite films of 2013. Mickle has proven himself time and time again, how working in genre films don’t have to limit one’s creativity, and strong, »

Yvonne Strahovski joins ABC's 'Astronaut Wives Club'

19 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the future of the "24" franchise — and her role as Jack Bauer's latest trusty sidekick — in limbo, Yvonne Strahovski has gone back to the past in more ways than one with her new gig, playing one of the title roles in ABC's "Astronaut Wives" club, written and executive produced by Stephanie Savage, and by "Chuck" co-creator Josh Schwartz. Based on the best-selling book by Lily Koppel, "Astronaut Wives Club" tells the story of the women behind Nasa's early astronauts, and how they deal with being catapulted into national celebrity overnight even as their husbands are preparing to be launched into orbit. Strahovski will play Rene Carpenter, wife of Mercury astronaut Scott Carpenter. The press notes suggest that "Her modern attitudes are source of both conflict and courage for the other Astrowives.  Over time, Rene finds her own voice and awakens to a higher calling in politics, civil rights and women’s issues. »

New Gotham Promo Features Victor Zsaz, Arkham Asylum And Scarecrow

29 September 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The new Fox Batman prequel series Gotham divided both critics and fans with last week’s premiere, but I actually liked it a lot and am excited to see where the show goes from here. As I said in my review, the pilot wasn’t perfect, but it effectively laid the groundwork for what could prove to be an excellent series - if the writers and showrunners play their cards right.

The second episode, titled “Selina Kyle,” airs tonight, but a new promo for the rest of the season has already been released. The trailer clocks in at a hefty two minutes and thirty seconds, and it fills each second of screentime with cool Easter eggs and exciting gems for diehard Bat-fans.

Most notable among them are the appearances of serial killer Victor Zsasz (played by Parenthood and The Forgotten actor Anthony Carrigan), up-and-coming mob boss Sal Maroni (Dexter‘s »

I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s wonderful!’” Then, Hader says Michaels surprised him with a question: “And then he said, “Uh, also, do you want to host?’ It was a total afterthought!” Plus: See Davidson, Hader and Schumer together on the set of "Trainwreck." “The Simpsons” paid a brief tribute to Joan Rivers Rivers was a last-minute addition to the season premiere, appearing in a mythical “Jewish Heaven.” Says exec producer Al Jean: "About a week after she passed away, »

Just like the arachnid creature that stalks Detective Castellanos in his newfound nightmare world, the release date for The Evil Within creeps ever closer, and Bethesda’s recent announcement that Shinji Mikami’s latest survival horror offering has gone gold means the game’s unnerving atmosphere will permeate five platforms without delay.

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Sept. 30, 2014

Price: DVD $24.98, Blu-ray $29.98

Studio: IFC/Mpi

Michael C. Hall (l.) and Sam Shepard get down to business in Cold in July.

Michael C. Hall (TV’s Dexter), Sam Shepard (Mud) and Don Johnson (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy), arguably the manliest celluloid trio of the year, star in the Southern film noir thriller Cold in July.

While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Hall) puts a bullet in the brain of lowlife burglar Freddy. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Richard soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben (Shepard), rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge. But not all is as it seems in this seemingly peaceful community, and soon Richard’s life begins to unravel into a dark underworld of corruption and violence that will pit him against the most unlikely of foes. »

Patrick Wilson And Matthew Fox Join Cannibal Western Bone Tomahawk

24 September 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s certainly been a lot of water under the bridge since we last heard any news about Calibre Media’s Bone Tomahawk. The violent yarn has been in development for a long while, with Timothy Olyphant and Peter Sarsgaard attached to star at one point. Back in October 2012, Kurt Russell joined the flick, along with Dexter‘s Jennifer Carpenter. Since then, talk on the film has been largely silent. Things are picking back up for the western again, however, as Insidious star Patrick Wilson and Lost alum Matthew Fox have joined the project.

The pair will join the previously-announced Russell, as Sheriff Franklin Hunt, and Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Six Feet Under) as a man named Chicory. No news on whether Carpenter will return, however.

In what is being termed a brutally violent tale, the film will follow four men who traipse out into the back end of beyond »

Sons Of Anarchy season 7 episode 3 review: Playing With Monsters

24 September 2014 12:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sons Of Anarchy's final season really needs to get motoring, and soon. Here's Gabriel's review of this week's episode...

[After a short interruption, our Sons Of Anarchy reviews have now resumed for the final season - Ed]

This review contains spoilers

7.3 Playing With Monsters

Final seasons are, by their very nature, tricky.

The longer a show runs, the more entrenched and developed the conflicts are, the harder it is to provide a satisfactory pay off. Dexter, for example, had so much it had to wrap up that it simply chose to avoid resolution altogether in favour of a misguided ambiguous ending. Meanwhile, Breaking Bad went for an arguably too neat resolution of everything that had come before, but did it with so much verve and style that it was hard to complain. What made that work was the careful meting out of resolution over eight episodes, making the final season feel like one long, rich and very satisfying finale. There were no arbitrary new plot lines being introduced, »

Review: Dexter Down Under

23 September 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’m sure a lot of you out there share my pain when I say I miss Dexter terribly. Regardless of how you personally feel about it’s conclusion or the various directions the series took over the course of 8 years, it’s hard to deny that it paved the wave for the current crop of genre-accessible television entertainment. And we can all agree that Season 4 has to be one of the greatest seasons of television ever. (I love Season’s 2 and 7 as well.) But there’s still that desire for your “Dexter fix.” I get it. I took solace in the Jeff Lindsay novels. I’d tried reading them while the show was in progress, but it started to get a bit difficult to follow along with the vastly radical directions both mediums were taking the characters in.
