Fantasy Gets Real In A New Trailer For The Second Season Of Syfy's The Magicians

While season 1 of Syfy's The Magicians ended on a particularly dour note, it doesn't appear that season 2 will be doing away with the dry, sarcastic tone it established. A new trailer for the second season has now debuted, and life appears to be looking up for Quentin, Alice, Penny, Margo and Elliot as they become Kings and Queens of Fillory. Check out the trailer below! The Magicians returns to Syfy on January 25, 2017. Based upon Lev Grossman's best-selling books, The Magicians stars Jason Ralph (A Most Violent Year, Aquarius) as Quentin Coldwater, a brilliant grad student who enrolls in Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, a secret upstate New York university specializing in magic. He and his 20-something friends soon discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real— and poses grave danger to humanity. Stella Maeve (Chicago P.D.), Hale Appleman (Teeth), Arjun Gupta (Nurse Jackie) and Summer Bishil (Towelhead,

The Conversation: Top 10 American Indie Filmmakers Missing in Action

No film buff wants to see a promising, or prominent filmmaker pull a disappearing act a la Terrence Malick, (though it seems he isn’t keen to repeat another lapse like the one between Days of Heaven to The Thin Red Line), but whether they’re dealing with unforeseeable professional (endless pre-production woes, writer’s block) or personal issues, sometimes there is a considerable time between projects.

With John Cameron Mitchell, Charlie Kaufman, Rebecca Miller, Patty Jenkins, Kenneth Lonergan and more recently, Barry Jenkins recently moving out of the so called “inactive” period, we decided to compile a list of the top ten American filmmakers who, for the most part, we’ve lost sight of and would like to see get back in the director’s chair again. Most of the filmmakers listed below have gone well over half a decade without a substantial movement in this category. Here is

Kaitlyn Bristowe is the Bachelorette! She charmed her way into the hearts of the Bachelor Nation – and nearly the Bachelor himself, Chris Soules, on season 19 of The Bachelor. Now Kaitlyn has begun her own journey to love.

I really, really wanted to chirp Ian ruthlessly, but I didn't have to. He did enough damage himself. I understand that it doesn't feel good when feelings aren't reciprocated, but try and exit with some dignity. I have nothing more to say about Ian; I've already wasted enough time on him.

Syfy Orders The Magicians To Series – Shooting Starts In July

I would say that you’ve got time to get reading, but if you’re going to be interested in the fact that Syfy has picked up The Magicians, you’ve probably already done the reading.

On the other hand, if the series is handled well it could easily take off like a rocket when released, so maybe this is a good time to tell you to make sure you know what everyone will be talking about.

Following Quentin Coldwater, the story will unfortunately be compared to the Harry Potter series by anyone who only gets the most cursory summary of what happens. It’s an edgier, darker spin on the general idea of going to school and learning magic really does exist, and the series of books tackle themes that are not only more relevant to adults, but in ways that create a far richer world.

Mark Wahlberg on Sony hack: "Nothing is private these days"

Mark Wahlberg on Sony hack:
Mark Wahlberg has addressed the Sony Pictures Entertainment hack, insisting that "nothing is private these days".

A continuous stream of leaked information continues to be made public in the wake of the scandal, from Leonardo DiCaprio being labelled 'despicable' in an email chain to producer Scott Rudin calling Angelina Jolie a "minimally talented spoiled brat".

Wahlberg has now told Access Hollywood that executives should always address issues with talent face-to-face.

"Nothing is private these days and if you have something to say about somebody, you know, be able to say it to their face," he explained.

The actor went on to say: "I personally - because now I'm on the other side of things where I'm, as an actor and as a producer, I'm on the other side of the casting table - I've been in the room with studio heads and people who make real decisions who are often

Mark Wahlberg Responds To 'Frightening' Sony Hack
Mark Wahlberg isn't all that surprised by the Sony hack and subsequent unpleasant information released about executives' opinions on stars.

"Nothing is private these days and if you have something to say about somebody, you know, be able to say it to their face," Mark told Access Hollywood at the junket for his new movie, "The Gambler," when asked about the Sony hack.

The 43-year-old actor said he's seen executives speak very bluntly about talent when making decisions, so he wasn't shocked to see harsh opinions in leak e-mails.

Ben Stiller to Star in I Am Chippendales, About Famous Male Dance Show

Ben Stiller is in talks to star in "I Am Chippendales," the true-life story of how the male dance club became one of the most famous adult entertainment shows in the world.

Stiller will play Nick DeNoia, the former choreographer/partner who helped conceive the idea for the dance troupe with Banerjee and attorney Brian Nahin and played a big part in the expansion of the act on a global level.

Lucky 7 TV Review – ABC Sucks The Charm Out Of British TV

Lucky 7 is yet another translation of British television for American audiences, and it’s about par for the course. While some efforts (mostly long ago and far away, with the exception of The Office) have come together to create long-lived, and beloved series, this isn’t an avenue of series creation that has a solid, recent track record.

Based on the British show, The Syndicate, it’s the story of a group of coworkers at a gas station who have been playing the same numbers for years, and fear for the jobs as rumors abound that the station is closing. All with their own monetary woes, which are laid out for us in great detail, this rag tag assortment of characters is about to find out that there are a lot of problems that come with their sudden riches.

The main trouble this show is going to have is in the translation of format.

True Blood Creator Alan Ball to Direct Back-to-Back Features I Am Chippendales and I Dream Of Gene

While HBO’s soapy vampire drama True Blood is poised to end its series run after next season, the show’s creator is lining up a couple of feature film projects to direct. Alan Ball, who stepped down from his True Blood showrunner post last year, has lined up I Am Chippendales as his next directorial feature, after which he will helm his take on the genie and the lamp story I Dream of Gene. Deadline reports that Ball will also pen the script for Chippendales, which tells the stranger than fiction origin story of the titular club. Steve Banerjee co-founded Chippendales after immigrating to the U.S. and first working at a gas pump. As he became inundated with excess and riches, he grew paranoid and later hired a hit man to murder a Chippendales choreographer and two ex dancers. Hit the jump for more on Ball’s new projects.

‘True Blood’s Alan Ball To Helm Features On Chippendales Founder, And A Loser Who Finds Genie Lamp
Exclusive: As he prepares to end his long running vampire series True Blood, Alan Ball has found two film projects to sink his teeth into for his big screen return. Ball has scripted and will next direct I Am Chippendales, an adaptation of the Rodney Sheldon book that sounds like a mix between Magic Mike and Scarface. Ball will then direct I Dream Of Gene, a broad comic tale that’s Ball’s contemporary take on the genie and the lamp. Chippendales tells the story of Steve Banerjee, an immigrant who went from pumping gas in Culver City to running a high-end nightclub that evolved into Chippendales. As the male stripper concept became a phenomenon in the 1980s at the height of the women’s lib movement, Banerjee was consumed by excess and competition. After hiring a New York choreographer to polish the all-male dance troupe, Banerjee became wildly rich,

Aaron Eckhart Interviewed About I, Frankenstein

  • Cinelinx
At Comic-con, Aaron Eckhart talked to IMDb about his new interpretation of Mary Shelly’s literary monster in Lionsgate’s upcoming I, Frankenstein.

At the Comic-Con Lionsgate Panel, the big news may have been about Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire, but there was also a few updates on next year’s horror/sci-fi project I, Frankenstein. Written and directed by Stuart Beattie, the film is based on a graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux. Star Aaron Eckhart, who stars as the monster—who is named Adam in this version—gave an in-depth interview to IMDb.

IMDb: …so this role seems like the complete opposite from what I’d expect you to play.

Eckhart: It’s all the same stuff which is story. If I broke this down, it’s the same way I broke down Chad (In the Company of Men)or any other characters. It’s about a man who is unwanted,

Aaron Eckhart: 'You're giving me a heart attack'

The actor certainly likes a good chat – about cigars, women, 70s action heroes, Twitter, self-healing and his new role as a Us president. But he does have a weak spot

Aaron Eckhart's day began as they all do: an hour in the gym, then same again with a cigar. Jetlag cannot disrupt that, snow can throw no spanners. "I was outside at 6am smoking with my hood on, watching everyone come to work, freezing my ass off. That's how dedicated I am."

Then breakfast, another cigar, four hours of interviews and lunch in his room, Moby on the deck, steak on the plate. "I ordered it medium rare. I got it medium beyond." Did he finish it? "Oh yeah, every little bit. I am a carnivore." Then another cigar. He'd like to be puffing on one right now. At least three more will get sucked before he sleeps.

"They're excellent to study to,
