The Real Reason Bryan Cranston Was Hired to Play Walter White on “Breaking Bad”

Breaking Bad‘s Walter White was one of the most memorable protagonists to ever show up on the TV screen. However, the character could not have happened without Bryan Cranston, who played the part to perfection. With that said, it is interesting to note that Cranston would not have been chosen without the input of the Breaking Bad series creator Vince Gilligan, who was familiar with his remarkable range as an actor from The X-Files. What Was Drive? In short, Gilligan was a TV writer on The X-Files. As a result, he wrote an episode called “Drive” featuring a character named

Carey Mulligan Was Once Offered A Recurring Role On Doctor Who

“Blink” was a landmark episode of Doctor Who for many reasons – chief among them being Carey Mulligan’s series debut as Sally Sparrow, a young English woman with a peculiar connection to the infamous Weeping Angels.

First broadcast in 2007, the spooky instalment came by way of Hettie MacDonald, who directed from a script by Steven Moffat (Sherlock). If that name rings a bell, it should; Moffat would later take over as showrunner of the hit BBC series, though his contribution to “Blink” is still remembered fondly among Whovians, given it’s often held up as one of the best episodes in the history of Doctor Who – no mean feat, mind you.

And now, in anticipation of the festive extravaganza, “Twice Upon a Time,” which will soon signal the end of his tenure and that of Peter Capaldi, Steven Moffat has confirmed that Carey Mulligan was approached about a possible recurring role as a companion.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Too Old To Die Young’: Everything You Need to Know About the Amazon TV Show
Director Nicolas Winding Refn’s newly announced crime series has been kept extremely under wraps — until recently.

The Triumphant Return of the 80’s Style Synth Score!

Tom Jolliffe takes a look at the return to popularity of the 80’s style synthesizer score…

Cinema and the orchestra have had a long-standing relationship. Over the years the big screen has been almost as much about the accompanying music as the film. When someone like John Williams creates iconic, rousing, emotional, bombastic and beautifully crafted scores like Star Wars, Superman and Indiana Jones, it enraptures an audience.

In the late 60’s, through the 70’s, people began toying with synthesizers more and more to create sound scapes and scores. Other wordly, and more ambient and enveloping than emotionally manipulative. They lacked a certain refined quality that the Orchestral score would give you but that sound in its own way (and in the right film) worked. Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells as a companion piece to The Exorcist is supremely effective and iconic. Or Wendy Carlos and the score for The Shining.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Nicolas Winding Refn

Few jobs require as much work, foresight, and creativity as directing films. As such, people often assume that successful directors are somehow infallible. The amount of talent that it takes to thrive in a business as competitive as the entertainment industry cannot be overstated.

Refn is best known for his work on Bronson, Valhalla Rising, and Drive. He also created the highly successful Pusher series. He is set to direct the upcoming Amazon series Too Old to Die Young.

Take Me Review: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Movie

Take Me Review: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Movie
It's Thanksgiving. You and the family have just finished your meal. And you want some lighter fare, suffering from the tryptophan buffet you just willingly engorged yourself with. The kids are off playing on their tablets. The game is over, and the adults need a swift 80 minute distraction before tearing into pumpkin pie and cobbler. Why not check out one of Netflix's looked-over gems from the past few months. It's the perfect little slice of desert before the desert. Don't spend hours searching the queue, arguing over what you're going to watch. Just select Take Me and go!

Take Me, while not a Netflix Original (it is only "Presented By Netflix"), is a home run for all the parties concerned. This whimsical tale of a simulated kidnapping gone very, very wrong is probably the first film to truly pull off this motif since 1986's Ruthless People or 1988's A Fish Called Wanda.

Those missing their “Mindhunter” fix will be delighted to find another auteur filmmaker tackling the period serial killer genre as excitement builds for TNT’s “The Alienist,” a new series executive produced by Cary Fukunaga and Jakob Verbruggen. A gripping new trailer and poster promises a sensuously chilling drama worthy of the “True Detective” creator. Haunting fiddle music plays over young boys’ parlor games; a horse lays bleeding in the cobblestone streets; and the hunt is on for a nefarious “child killer.” As Fukunaga’s first foray into television after “True Detective,” “The Alienist” will surely pack a fine-tuned punch.

Oscar Isaac Reveals Poe Was Supposed To Die In Star Wars: The Force Awakens

As promotion for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ramps up, the cast is cropping up in the press with increasing regularity – and every once in a while, an interesting nugget of information appears. The latest comes from Oscar Isaac, who plays Resistance pilot Poe Dameron in the franchise. His character was introduced in opening sequence of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and, when the film arrived in theatres, it quickly became clear that he’d joined the ranks of the most beloved of Star Wars canon.

But, what audiences saw in theatres was the result of changes made to the story by J.J. Abrams – partly due to the insistence of Isaac, and partly due to fate and circumstance. Firstly, Poe Dameron was not supposed to survive the first act. In the film, when we see him help Finn escape the First Order, and then watch his Tie fighter crash into the sand,
