The U.K.'s London Daily Mail, waxing imaginative about the future of the James Bond franchise in the wake of Daniel Craig's post-"Spectre" reluctance to return to the long-lived series, has reported that "Mad Men" creator Matt Weiner is working on a 60s-era 007 reboot. Of course Ian Fleming's original Bond was brought to the movies during the 60s, as Sean Connery starred in "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love," among the strongest entries in the series until Sam Mendes brought it back to its former glory. A rep for Weiner stated that the writer is working on several other projects that have nothing to do with Bond. »

Early in Steve Jobs, the Aaron Sorkin-scripted, Danny Boyle-directed biopic about the mercurial Apple co-founder, the hero does something so right yet so peculiar that you understand why a cult sprung up around him. It's 1984, a few weeks after the legendary SuperBowl commercial heralding the arrival of the Apple Macintosh. The official public unveiling is minutes away. The crowd, which has been kept waiting as its creator dithers and tinkers backstage, has begun muttering and stomping its feet. Jobs is a serenely confident pill of a man, micromanaging everything, »
Queen of Earth, 2015.
Written and Directed by Alex Ross Perry.
Two women who grew up together discover they have drifted apart when they retreat to a lake house together.
Starting as it means to go on, Alex Ross Perry’s Queen of Earth opens on the dishevelled Katherine, played by the exquisitely talented Elisabeth Moss, who may just be the best actress working in Hollywood right now. Red-faced after many minutes of heartache, tears forming aggressively on her face as eye-liner and make-up cascade across her face as the extent of the newest heartbreak unfolds before her eyes. We stay almost exclusively on this rejected, crestfallen face as her now ex-boyfriend James (Audley) tells her he is leaving for another woman mere weeks after her father passed away. One monumental tragedy is enough to »

Will there be a seventh season of Lena Dunham's HBO series, Girls? While Girls has not been cancelled, The L.A. Times reports that during a morning show podcast, Dunham indicated Girls may bow after season six.
Season five of the half-hour comedy, which also stars Allison Williams (The Mindy Project), Jemima Kirke, and Zosia Mamet (Mad Men), premieres in January 2016, so Dunham still has plenty of time to decide.
Is season six truly the end for Girls? The L.A. Times quotes Dunham as saying: "Never say never, but that is the way we're thinking about it right now and we're starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines of these particular young women.”
This is not the first time Dunham has suggested that season six will be the final one for Girls. In »
Meet some of the best directors working today, who haven't gone down the blockbuster movie route...
Ever find it a bit lame when the same big name directors get kicked around for every high profile project? Christopher Nolan, Jj Abrams, maybe the Russo Brothers? With so much focus on blockbuster films these days, getting a major franchise job seems like the main acknowledgement of success for a filmmaker. And yes, both the financial and creative rewards can be great. But there are plenty of other directors out there, doing their own thing, from art house auteurs to Dtv action specialists.
Here are 25 examples.
Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen Lee Hardcastle’s ultraviolent claymations shared on social media. He first started getting noticed for his two-minute remake of The Thing, starring the famous stop motion penguin Pingu. Far from just a cheap one-joke mash-up, »

Playwright Keith Reddin’s adaptation is based on the Cornell Wollrich short story (about a man confined to his New York apartment who believes he’s witnessed a murder), which also served as the basis of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954… »
That's right: Brian Blessed and Jon Hamm will feature in the same episode of Toast of London. Fingers crossed they get in the recording booth and shout "Fire the nuclear weapons!" while Clem Fandango looks on.
For those not in the know, Toast of London is a thoroughly bonkers sitcom that sees Matt Berry (The It Crowd, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh) as a bumbling actor whose distinctive voice sets him apart from pretty much everyone - apart from Brian Blessed, that is.
Jon Hamm, incidentally, will play himself in the show, with the joke »

Ray Donovan wrapped its most creatively satisfying season to date Sunday with a three-years-in-the-making moment. In the episode’s closing minutes, Liev Schreiber’s titular fixer at long last opened up about the childhood sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of Father O’Connor (the fact that his sounding board was also a man of the cloth and the setting of his emotional breakthrough was a church heightened the sequence’s potency).
