If you haven’t had a chance to read the news, or you happen to live under a rock, then you may not know that The Power Rangers have recently made a comeback… sort of.
A fan-made film by Joseph Kahn called Power/Rangers was recently released on YouTube and has already gathered over 12,000,000 views. A gritty, disturbing, and action packed short, this not-for-kids version of The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers has proved that while some shows might be for children, their film adaptations would be perfect for adults.
But Kahn isn’t the first one to prove this.
Back in 2011 a fan-made, live action trailer for the non-existent film Pokémon Apokélypse was released to the excitement of fans. The trailer showed a truly twisted and disturbing look into the world of Pokémon training, where trainers would do anything to win and no one was above murder.

The role of the director in television has, historically, always come second to the writer. In the words of Marcos Siega, director/executive producer of "The Following," there's a perception of them as "traffic cops." But in an era when television keeps getting better and better, there's a shift in that perspective, especially thanks to the influx of A-list directors like David Fincher and Steven Soderbergh. Siega comes from the other side, having worked for over 10 years on shows including "Dexter" and "The Vampire Diaries," but he doesn't mind it when the feature guys come to play. At this year's ATVfest, Indiewire sat down with him to discuss what it can mean to be an "executive producer," what he feels he does as the lead director of a show and the valuable lessons he learned from being a guest director on "Veronica Mars."

Shortly after The Evil Within launched onto consoles, PCs and slap bang into the center of our nightmares back in October, publisher Bethesda assured fans that news pertaining to additional content for the horror title would arrive in the early stages of 2015.
From what we understand, the company intends on releasing three story-centric slices of Dlc for Shinji Mikami’s exercise in nerve-shredding fear, with the first expected to arrive in the spring. And while Bethesda is remaining coy on specific release dates at this time, the company took to Twitter to confirm that news relating to what we assume will be the first post-launch installment is imminent.
@notevenBANDO stay tuned for good news soon

Meet Nate and Marni, two complete opposites that have one thing in common: they are both eccentrically unable to find someone that they believe is “The One.” That is, until they mistakenly meet on a blind date that they go on together instead of with the dates they were set up with. After establishing a connection with each other that neither has felt before, they defy logic and reason to date one another even after sharing quirks that would normally send any sane person running for the hills. Now, together they »

Ray Santiago ("Dexter") and Dana DeLorenzo ("Californication") have scored the other two leading roles in Starz's "Ash Vs. Evil Dead," the Sam Raimi-produced series sequel to his beloved horror comedy franchise "Evil Dead".
Bruce Campbell is reprising his role as Ash, a stock boy and aging lothario who must return to his monster-hunting ways when a Deadite plague soon threatens to destroy all of humanity. Ash must soon face his own demons, both literally and figuratively speaking.
Santiago will play Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant and something of a Sancho Panza to Ash's Don Quixote. DeLorenzo is Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past who is reluctantly dragged into the fight.
"Ash Vs. Evil Dead" has gone straight to series and will premiere on the network towards the end of the year. Filming begins this Spring in New Zealand and Raimi is set to direct the first episode. »

Bruce Campbell won't be fighting Deadites alone in the upcoming Starz TV show sequel Ash Vs. Evil Dead. The horror series from producer and director Sam Raimi has locked down 2 very different sidekicks for Ashley as he returns with his chainsaw hand to fight of supernatural forces. Meet Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo, Bruce Campbell supporting duo!
Ash Vs. Evil Dead has gone straight to series, and will premiere on Starz sometime in late 2015. Bruce Campbell is reprising his role as Ash, a stock boy and aging lothario who must return to his monster-hunting ways. He has spent the last three decades avoiding any responsibility, his own maturity and most important of all, the Evil Dead. But a Deadite plague soon threatens to destroy all of humanity, forcing Ashley to face his own demons, both literally and figuratively speaking. Destiny, it seems, is not yet ready to loosen this hero from its deadly grip. »
When Sam Raimi talked about the possibility of an Evil Dead TV series last year, there were many who thought the project would never see the light of day, but it became official late last year. Bruce Campbell is returning for Ash vs Evil Dead, a new TV series that will premiere later this year on Starz and we have the names of two people that will be joining Ash in his fight.
“Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) will play the role of Pablo Simon Bolivar and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) will play Kelly Maxwell in the Starz original series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” The series is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to film on location in New Zealand this spring and premiere on Starz in late 2015.

Medical dramas are still hot in the TV development game, with NBC’s soap “Heart Matters” and CBS’ ER-set “Code Black” and “Lfe” up for series contention. Overall, however, the networks are looking beyond the operating room for the 2015-16 cycle, tying pilots to current events, and focusing on more diverse themes. In fact, CBS’ “Rush Hour” remake is the only new show that fulfills the once-popular buddy-cop slot. Here’s a look at some of the biggest trends this pilot season:
Diversity in Entertainment
Hot on the heels of “Empire’s” huge success on Fox, NBC leads the broadcast pack with five minority-focused pilots. Eva Longoria headlines the straight-to-series “Telenovela,” and Jennifer Lopez will star as a cop-turned-undercover FBI agent in “Shades of Blue.” Drama “Curse of the Fuentes Women” comes from “Ugly Betty” producer Silvio Horta, while “Love Is a Four Letter Word” puts marriage to the race-sex-and-gender test. »
