Adam Davidson to Direct the Pilot Episode of The Walking Dead Spin-Off Series

6 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

AMC’s The Walking Dead companion series just locked a director for the pilot episode and he’s an Academy Award winner!  Adam Davidson snagged the Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film back in 1991 for The Lunch Date and, ever since, he’s been racking up TV credits.  He’s worked on a slew of shows including Lost, Deadwood, Dexter, True Blood, Fringe, Big Love, Masters of Sex and so many more. Davidson is expected to start shooting his Walking Dead companion series episode late this year.  Hit the jump for more on the show and Davidson. It’s times like this that I wish I had paid closer attention to who’s directing what episode of my favorite TV shows, but sadly, I can’t remember what went down in Davidson’s episodes of Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels or Six Feet Under.  However, he did just »

Constantine: 5 Things to Know About NBC's Devilishly Irreverent Drama

17 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

John Constantine‘s business cards read “Exorcist, Demonologist and Master of the Dark Arts” — and all three of those vocations get a workout in NBC’s new drama based on the popular DC Comics character.

After decades in the Hellblazer comics and one ill-fated run at the big screen, Constantine makes his TV debut Friday (10/9c). Welsh actor Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect BehaviorThe Tudors) plays the trenchcoated demon whisperer, a tortured con man who’d prefer to abandon his occult work but feels compelled to help those who need him most.

Yes, Constantine Is a Show About a Man Who Fights Demons, But I Didn’t Believe a Second of It

23 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I didn't believe a second of NBC's Constantine, adapted from DC Comics' Hellblazer series. That might seem a strange complaint given that the story concerns an exorcist/demonologist (Matt Ryan) who travels the world, battling demons who've possessed innocent mortals while trying to right a tragic mistake. It must be a tone thing and a performance thing: The show's got the atmosphere and visuals things nailed down.As directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) and overseen by executive producers Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Dark City, and way too many comics adaptations to list here), the first installment, which airs Friday night at 10 p.m., doesn't lack for production value. Possessed people swing and twirl through the air, hordes of cockroaches skitter, the ground opens up, the sky goes dark with purplish cumulus clouds, and a horned demon lunges from a hellmouth, »

Gotham episode 5 review: Viper

21 October 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There’s plenty of future teases and neat plot advancements in this week’s Gotham. Here’s Rob’s review of Viper…

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Viper

Utilising Gotham’s continuing ability to show signs of trouble one week and huge heaps of potential the next, Viper was an episode with lots to enjoy. It was certainly a huge advancement and a welcome change from the central-plot-lite and real-estate-heavy Arkham of last week.

Impressing us again was Salvatore Maroni, played with poker-faced menace by David Zayas. While Falcone has seemed a bit distant throughout, Gotham’s second-highest-ranking mob boss truly ramped up the fear-inducing/genuinely threatening stakes this week. His dialogue is calm and collected, but his actions explain why so many fear him. It’s certainly a strong supporting performance from the Dexter, Grimm and The Expendables alumnus.

For a world of brutal gangs, Maroni’s blasé request for »

Broadway box office: Michael C. Hall's 'Hedwig' scores, but Carol Burnett can't boost 'Love Letters'

20 October 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It's a tale of two A-list replacements: Dexter star Michael C. Hall put on some makeup for Hedwig and the Angry Inch and kicked up $544,166 for his first six performances, according to figures from the Broadway League for the week ending Oct. 19. That's down just 4 percent per-show from what Andrew Rannells took in during his final seven shows the previous week—but it still represents an impressive 85 percent of the potential gross for the Belasco Theatre. But another high-profile substitution proved less successful: Carol Burnett, returning to Broadway for the first time in a decade, failed to lift ticket sales »

DVD Review: 'Cold in July'

20 October 2014 3:23 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆After dabbling satisfyingly with horror in his three features so far, director Jim Mickle adopts a decidedly different pace with Cold in July (2014), a violent crime thriller adapted from Joe R. Lansdale's novel of the same name. In his first major role since TV's Dexter plunged his knife for the final time, Michael C. Hall makes a welcome return to the big screen, demonstrating how his collected and effortlessly engaging manner can lift even the most average material. Set in East Texas in 1989, Hall plays Richard Done, a mulleted, mild-mannered everyman and devoted husband and father, whose moderate life takes a dramatic turn when, after being awoken one night, he fatally shoots a burglar in his home.

'Sons of Anarchy': Brad Carter on Leland, and other roles his mom can't watch

15 October 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: In the Oct. 14 episode of Sons of Anarchy, "Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em," Leland (Brad Carter) and the Aryan Brotherhood made a return appearance to have a fistfight with Samcro, view the corpses of the ambushed East Dub crew, and taste-test the Mayan heroin that Tully (Marilyn Manson) is going to now distribute in Stockton under Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) new plan. Viewers may recognize the Texas-born, Georgia-raised Carter, who'd auditioned to play an Irish biker on Sons years ago, from HBO's True Detective—he played Ab inmate Charlie Lange.

Icons Pirate Commentary: The Warriors with Sean Clark & Rob G!

14 October 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

It’s been a while since we here at Icons Of Fright have been able to host a new “pirate commentary.” And so we were excited when the prospect of this special Warriors one came together. I’ve always been a fan of the film; I have vague memories of seeing it during frequent re-runs on cable. A few years back when the “Ultimate Director’s Cut” came out on Blu-Ray, I picked it up, watched it. Was a little baffled as to why all the terrible comic-book panels were in there, but it’d been so long since I’d seen the original theatrical cut that at the time it didn’t bother me. However, a few months back, I caught that original version on the big screen over at the New Beverly Cinema here in Los Angeles and was blown away by just how great it really is. »

This Week on Stage: Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and Rupert Grint tear up the town

11 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Two buzzy new plays opened on Broadway this week. It's Only a Play, a Terrence McNally comedy reuniting Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, is proving to be anything but an only at the box office. It's averaging 1.2 million bucks per week and 101 percent attendance. The madcap sendup of Broadway roasts a lot of boldface names; one of its biggest targets -- New York Times critic Ben Brantley -- had a surprisingly good sense of humor about the depiction of himself. Also opening this week is the stateside premiere of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based on Mark Haddon's best-selling 2003 novel. »

Director Michael Cuesta Talks Kill The Messenger, Balancing Fact and Fiction, the Alternate Opening, Future Projects, and More

10 October 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening this weekend is director Michael Cuesta's (Homeland, Dexter) dramatic thriller Kill the Messenger.  Based on the true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner), whose life was ruined when he linked the CIA to a scheme to arm Contra rebels in Nicaragua and import cocaine into California.  His investigation not only threatened to ruin his career, but also his life and the life of his family.  The film also stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Ray Liotta, Barry Pepper, Michael Sheen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Oliver Platt, Andy Garcia, Tim Blake Nelson, Robert Patrick, Michael Kenneth Williams, and Paz Vega.  For more on Kill the Messenger (which I thought was really well done), watch the trailer. Last week I sat down with Michael Cuesta for an extended video interview.  He talked about balancing fact and fiction while bringing this story to the screen, his first cut, deleted scenes, working with Renner, »

Tsr Exclusive: ‘Kill the Messenger’ Interview with Director Michael Cuesta

9 October 2014 6:53 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

In the 1980s, the CIA was complicit in the marketing of Nicaraguan cocaine to lower class Californians in order to fund the country’s Contra rebels. This was a thesis that San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb put out into the world in the late 90s, and was eventually destroyed because of it. The new film Kill the Messenger is Webb’s own story, a “David vs. Goliath” tale in which David is crushed and ruined by forces that can spin the media in their own favor, while easily discrediting the blood-sweat-tears efforts of a reporter who had to keep many of his sources anonymous.

Director Michael Cuesta creates a vivid portrayal of Webb (played by Jeremy Renner) presenting him as a dedicated working man and also a conflicted father. Kill the Messenger becomes more than the story of a media victim, but a patriarch who tries to maintain »

Kill The Messenger – The Review

9 October 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Stop the presses” was a line of dialogue used in all manner of thrillers and mysteries throughout Hollywood’s Golden age as a reflection of the movies’ love affair with newspapers and crusading reporters. Now this romance has had its bumps, since for every The Front Page or His Girl Friday, there’s a Citizen Kane who created news events to sell copy. But overall, the seekers of truth, the reporters have been the heroes in cinema (is it any wonder that Superman’s human disguise is that of “mild, mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper”?). One of the best examples may be 1976′s All The President’S Men with Woodward and Bernstein as an investigative dynamic duo who would follow every lead, turn over every rock in order to publish the facts. The fourth estate isn’t what it used to be in today’s world what with »
