How a 'Mad Men' Live Read Captured Matthew Weiner's Writing Style and The Show's Transitory Bliss

24 May 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There were no shortage of fetes surrounding the end of "Mad Men" recently. But the one that essentially functioned as the show's series finale party, the one that brought together the legendary cast and crew of the groundbreaking drama for one last hurrah -- didn't actually star any of them.  Instead, Film Independent teamed up with AMC for an event in the tradition of its established series of live reads of great film screenplays: Filmmaker Jason Reitman cast and directed a table read of a classic "Mad Men" episode -- meaning that the cast in attendance got to see themselves reinterpreted, in front of a live audience packed into the Ace Theater in downtown Los Angeles.  Read More: Why the Live Read is Here to Stay Reitman recast the roles with a group of actors of varying fame: Colin Hanks, Fred Savage, Kevin Pollak, David Wain and Rob Huebel were »

BuzzFeed Reporter Sexual Harassment Claims: ‘Mad Men’ Actor’s Rep Disputes; Lawyer Dissects (Exclusive)

23 May 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

BuzzFeed News’ Susan Cheng published a piece Monday alleging that “Mad Men” actor Paul Johansson sexually harassed her during an interview at the site’s offices in late April. But the actor’s publicist Cheryl McLean, who was present, disputed Cheng’s claims in an interview with TheWrap, saying the women at the shoot acted like fans, not journalists. “At no point did the interview get out of hand where, as a professional publicist, I felt I needed to take him out of the room,” McClean told TheWrap. “There was nothing inappropriate going on.” Cheng’s piece claimed that the actor joked, »

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Grant Gustin

23 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Grant Gustin

The Show | The Flash

The Episode | “Fast Enough” (May 19)

The Performance | With its game-changing twists, promising peeks into the future and more Easter eggs than you could shake Danielle Panabaker’s Killer Frost wig at, Tuesday’s Flash finale can remain confident in its summer-long stay on our DVRs.

But it was star Gustin’s tearjerking performance as an uncertain hero with the weight of the world — and its many alternate timelines — on his shoulders that made this a truly unforgettable hour of television. We barely held it together during Barry’s just-in-case farewell to Joe (“Goodbye dad! »

Watch: Andrew Niccol on Drone Warfare and the Realities of 'Good Kill'

23 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Good Kill," is available now On Demand.] How loyal are our drone pilots to their cause, really? What happens when they start to question the ethics of drone warfare? These are just a few of the controversial questions raised in "Good Kill," the new film from writer-director Andrew Niccol, which follows a drone pilot who becomes disillusioned with his video game-esque job when he realizes the extent of the damage his work inflicts. Ethan Hawke ("Boyhood") stars as the drone pilot alongside January Jones ("Mad Men") as his wife and Zoë Kravitz ("Divergent") as a fellow pilot. "Good Kill" is notable in that it looks at a different--though no less controversial--side of drone warfare: how it affects the pilots and their families.

Humans First Look: AMC Drama Offers Eerie Take on Androids Among Us

22 May 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

People, did Battlestar Galactica teach us nothing?!

Apparently not, because the just-released trailer for AMC’s upcoming sci-fi series Humans gives us a glimpse at a parallel universe where “Synths” — highly developed, artificially intelligent servants — are every family’s go-to accessory.

See First Photos of Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp

22 May 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D. MilesMarisa RyanKevin Sussman, and David Wain (who will again write and direct, with Showalter serving as showrunner). New cast members will include Michaela Watkins, Josh Charles, John Slattery »

‘Mad Men’ Series Finale Hits Viewership & 25-54 Highs In Live+3 Results

AMC said that they weren't going to be talking ratings for the end of the Matthew Weiner drama until the Live+3 numbers came in. And despite that very serious look on Don Draper’s meditating face, they are probably really glad today that they did. While May 17 finale of Mad Men hit season-ender demo and viewership highs in Live+Same Day results, the Live+3 numbers have the much hyped and very heavily promoted departure jumping double-digits and breaking viewership and… »

Poltergeist review: Dismal remake delivers snores not shivers

22 May 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Gil Kenan; Screenwriter: David Lindsay-Abaire; Starring: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements, Jared Harris; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

If familiarity breeds contempt then overfamiliarity brings boredom. This lazy, unimaginative remake of horror classic Poltergeist supplies snores instead of shudders and inertia instead of intrigue, failing to muster any significant fresh ideas or sustain any tension.

Moving into a property built on an ancient burial ground is a marginally more doomed accommodation arrangement than a flatshare with Katie Hopkins and Perez Hilton. As per its predecessor's plot, the 2015 version positions a wholesome American family in this precarious scenario and unleashes a procession of progressively supernatural proceedings on them.

Whereas Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper's original transfixed viewers with its imaginative sense of dread and foreboding atmosphere, Gil Kenan's remake spectacularly fails to instill a sense of jeopardy despite some smart camerawork and solid performances from all the leads, »

Mad Men Understood Human Behavior Better Than Any Show on TV

22 May 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mad Men closed with its hero, adman Don Draper (Jon Hamm), sitting lotus-style on a hilltop in 1970, experiencing bliss, or something like it. Don had proclaimed ten years earlier that love was a lie invented by guys like him to sell nylons and that we’re all born alone and die alone, and now here he was in California, shorn of his job, his home, his marriage, his apartment, his car, and even his suit, meditating on a hilltop overlooking the ocean. Our final glimpse of Don was a close-up of his face as he smiled somewhat mysteriously, whereupon series creator Matthew Weiner, who wrote and directed the finale, cut to Coca-Cola’s 1971 musical ad, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.” That grin plus the Coke commercial added up to the perfect ending for a drama that was consistently hard-edged yet essentially compassionate, and more perceptive about »

How the Age of Antihero TV Has Ruined Us All

22 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sunday night, viewers had a choice: Watch Sansa Stark's horrifying wedding night on HBO's "Game of Thrones," or watch Don Draper and a host of other characters find some measure of tidy fulfillment on the series finale of "Mad Men." Viewers seemed dissatisfied with both, judging by how they proceeded to set the Internet ablaze.

The outrage over Sansa's rape (with new husband Ramsay Bolton forcing himself on her while making her erstwhile stepbrother Theon Greyjoy watch) stems not just from the fact that the show's writers gave Sansa the fate meted out to another character in the books, or even that the violence was especially lurid or graphic. (Indeed, by "Game of Thrones" standards, the scene was fairly brief and discreet.) Rather, it was that Sansa has been a fan favorite, a decent person who's witnessed many ghastly events and lost several family members, but who herself had been »

Mad Men review – ‘no deaths or crashes, but an apt and cool conclusion’

21 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Those brilliant, complex, three-dimensional characters we have come to know so well will carry on – it’s just that we don’t get to watch any more

So Mad Men (Sky Atlantic), the final chapter. Don, still On The Road, heading west, has reached Utah, where he races a car across the salt flats, searching for speed and plenty more besides. He’s better back in a car, than waiting by the side of the road for a bus; that didn’t suit Don Draper. He’s not bad in denim either.

“Hello, I love you, won’t you tell me your name?” Jim Morrison sings from the garage radio. It’s what a lot of people – women mostly – have been saying to Don for seven series. Dick, that’s his name, as Stephanie reminds him when he finally makes it across to La. They head up the coast together, »
