'Thor: The Dark World' Director Alan Taylor Says His Marvel Experience Was "Particularly Wrenching"

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Creative freedom or directorial shackles? Depending on who you ask, taking on a big budget blockbuster is either the chance to try some exciting things with lots of money and big effects teams, or finding yourself in constant meetings with executives who have an endless series of conflicting notes serving various needs. For director Alan Taylor, who cut his teeth on TV with "Game Of Thrones," "The Sopranos," "Mad Men," "Deadwood" and more, his leap to tentpole movies with Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" was fine...until shooting wrapped. "I’ve done two [blockbuster movies; the other being this week's 'Terminator Genisys'] and I’ve learned that you don’t make a $170 million movie with someone else’s money and not have to collaborate a lot," Taylor told Uproxx. "The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different »

Jon Hamm & Jennifer Westfeldt Teaming Up Again for New Project

12 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt may be reuniting on the big screen. It's been four years since they first teamed up for her directorial debut, Friends With Kids. "There's a couple of projects that we have percolating," the Mad Men star told me at the premiere of his new flick, Minions, adding, "It's one of those things we enjoyed the first time around so hopefully we can find something else to do again." One thing Hamm won't be doing? Starring in Westfeldt's new musical. In fact, she couldn't make it to the Minions premiere because she's in New York doing a workshop of the "brand new musical" with New York Stage and Film. "Literally no one »

Casting Clueless: The Musical - Who should play Cher Horowitz? We have our say

21 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We love Clueless more than is probably acceptable, so when we heard that director Amy Heckerling is working on a jukebox musical we got seriously excited (and even started breaking in our purple clogs in preparation).

But one big question remains - who's going to be in the production? After all, Heckerling admitted that casting would be the biggest issue, so we started thinking about who could step into the iconic roles of Cher, Josh, Tai, Elton et al. Below are some of our suggestions, but let us know who you think should get involved.

Cher (Alicia Silverstone) - Kiernan Shipka

Admittedly, our first thought for Cher was Taylor Swift, because she's our first thought for most things. But actually, wouldn't Kiernan Shipka be ace as Cher? She's proved that she has serious acting chops thanks to her stint in Mad Men, but we'd like her to show off her »

Emmy predictions slugfest: Victory at last for Jon Hamm and history made by Viola Davis? (Video)

29 June 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Will Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") finally win an Emmy after 13 previous losses? Can Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder") break the color barrier? In our new Emmy predictions slugfest (watch below), Gold Derby editors Daniel Montgomery, Charles Bright and Ralph Galvan join me in making our forecasts for Best Drama Actor and Best Drama Actress. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders If Hamm were to lose, we predict an upset victory for either Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards"), Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom"), Bob Odenkirk ("Better Call Saul"), Terrence Howard ("Empire") or Kyle Chandler ("Bloodline"). But watch out for a few under-the-radar actors that are still very much in this race. Since an African-American woman has never won Best Drama Actress, we wonder if perhaps that title will go to Davis, Taraji P. Henson ("Empire&quot..." »

If I had an Emmy ballot 2015: Who should be nominated?

29 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

Jon Hamm Pays Tribute to ‘Minions’ as ‘Slapstick Comedy Geniuses’

28 June 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Shrine Auditorium was awash in a sea of “bello” yellow at Saturday’s Los Angeles premiere of “Minions,” where guests turned up in their best banana-hued duds to fete the giddily anticipated prequel to Universal Pictures’ “Despicable Me” franchise.

Cast members Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and Allison Janney joined “Minions” directors Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda and screenwriter Brian Lynch at the afternoon event, where kids and families were treated to an outdoor carnival complete with a Ferris wheel, super slide, and custom Minion T-shirt stations, along with a bevy of Minion-themed balloons, baubles and edibles in the way of marshmallows, Rice Krispy treats and yellow-and-blue macaroons. Costumed Minions circled the crowd, amusing pint-sized fans with their dopey antics and Esperanto-like gibberish.

Bullock was the hit of the yellow carpet, wearing Minion-inspired stiletto heels, designed by Rupert Sanderson. (The court shoes are part of the Minions Bello Yellow Collection, »

Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far): Part Three

27 June 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of the Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far)

Justified, “The Promise”

Written by Graham Yost & Fred Golan & Dave Andron & Benjamin Cavell

Directed by Adam Arkin

Aired April 14th, 2015 on FX

Over the course of its run, Justified established itself as a top tier drama, which meant that expectations were high going into its sixth and final season. The series finale, however, delivered on several fronts, elevating itself into not only a highlight of the show, but a highlight of the television year as a whole to date. The deft manner in which the episode balances its numerous characters is one of the key ways in which it distinguishes itself. While the finale’s most important showdown is the one between Boyd and Raylan, the writers make sure to give the season’s antagonist Avery Markham his due as well, not diminishing the danger he posed by dismissing him easily. »

Daredevil, Empire and more: The 13 best TV shows of 2015 so far

26 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Believe it or not, 2015 is half done already - and the past six months have delivered some top-notch television, much of it brand new drama, comedy and documentaries.

Picking the finest from a particularly fine crop was no easy task, but these were our rules: it had to launch in 2015, it must have aired one series / season in its entirety and it had to be a continuing series.

So no-one off pieces - e.g. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - and nothing that got the chop - sorry, Banished.

Here - in original broadcast order - are the DS Staff Picks from the year so far.

Marvel's Agent Carter - Morgan Jeffery, TV Editor

Hopes were high for Marvel's Agent Carter - not least because fans had been clamouring for a series featuring Hayley Atwell's heroine ever since her 2013 One-Shot short film.

Happily, this 8-part first season met and »

Emmys cliffhanger: Will Elisabeth Moss and Vera Farmiga bounce back after snubs?

26 June 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When examining our Experts' Emmy predictions for Best Drama Actress, you'll notice something interesting: three pundits include Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") in their rankings and one predicts a bid for Vera Farmiga ("Bates Motel"). But wait, don't these Emmyologists -- Robert Bianco (USA Today), Debra Birnbaum (Variety), Matthew Jacobs (HuffPo) and Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby) -- remember that Moss and Farmiga got skunked last year and, as Emmy legend goes, once you're out, you're out? -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders Look at what happened in the past to Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order: Svu") and Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer") in this same category. Both of these winners couldn't sneak back onto the nominee lineup after they got the boot. So why is everybody assuming that Moss and Farmiga (who've never won) will be rare exception »

Julian Fellowes Talks ‘Downton Abbey’ Final Season, Spoilers for U.S. Fans

26 June 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julian Fellowes is in the midst of wrapping up what he calls the seven year “adventure” of “Downton Abbey.” While the international hit hopes to score its fifth consecutive Emmy nomination next month, Fellowes is concentrating on finishing up the sixth and final season, which will debut in the U.K. later this year. After that, Fellowes will segue to another period drama, “The Gilded Age,” for NBC.

The Oscar-winning scribe tells Variety he has mixed emotions about ending “Downton,” but doesn’t regret the decision. But he does wish U.S. auds could have the chance to see the finale at the same time as fans across the Pond.

How are you feeling as you near the end of “Downton”?

You know, it’s almost strange. I’ve lived with these people for seven years now. They’ve taken me and all of us to the top of the mountain. »

When Marnie Was There Review

25 June 2015 7:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the future of Studio Ghibli remains uncertain, if When Marnie Was There ends up being the revered animation house’s swan song, it will make for a fitting final chapter in the studio’s history, if not the outright best one. While the anime art style and visual storytelling that endeared Ghibli to millions is still present, and arguably its strongest yet in terms of consistency, When Marnie Was There is a minor entry compared to the likes of Spirited Away, or even last year’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

All the same, When Marnie Was There’s place among the Ghibli canon is undeniable. It’s at once a sweepingly elegiac melodrama, and a simple children’s fable, one adapted from the Joan G. Robinson novel of the same name. Ghibli stories split the difference between visionary fantasy and earthy realism, often times within the same movie, »

‘Mad Men’ Creator Matthew Weiner on Iconic Show’s Secret Weapon: ‘It’s Not Just Writing, It’s the Cinema’

This story originally appeared in the Comedy/Drama Series issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. In May of 2015, about 17 years after Matthew Weiner got the idea for “Mad Men,” the final, triumphant episode of his AMC series aired. And once it did, the showrunner finally relaxed and began speaking more openly about the iconic show he’s been tight-lipped about for seven seasons. He sat down with TheWrap at the Biltmore in downtown Los Angeles, where some scenes from the show were filmed. Tim Appelo: Last year, you told TheWrap about “Mad Men’s” end: “I’ll tell you who »
