Rather than the sentimental portrayals of first love, Diary of a Teenage Girl is a frank and bitingly comic portrayal of the highs and lows of lust.
The comedy premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, and also won the Grand Prix of Generation 14plus at the Berlin International Film Festival.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl opens in Us cinemas on August 7. A UK release is yet to be set. »
“The Hunger Games” cast is pretty much set in stone. We know who’s who, but in the final chapter, “Mockingjay—Part II,” Jennifer Lawrence’s girl power gets a boost from two “Game of Thrones” stars, Natalie Dormer (who was introduced in ‘Mockingjay—Part 1’) and Gwendoline Christie, and “True Blood” actor Michelle Forbes, who plays a new character, a lieutenant in the resistance. “There is some serious girl power in this movie,” director Francis Lawrence told EW this week. “[Suzanne Collins] wrote it that way, and it’s been so much fun to inhabit.” Since it’s the final chapter in the war about a rebellion against the powers that be, expect some casualties.

Along with a slew of images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly also has a new preview image from the final installment in one of the most popular (and best) franchises in recent memory: The Hunger Games. Director Francis Lawrence shot the last two films, Mockingjay – Part 1 and Mockingjay – Part 2, in one go, but this fall sees the release of the final movie. The epilogue for the pic wasn’t shot until last month due to weather issues, but as of now the Hunger Games franchise is entirely in the can. This new image features Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and Elizabeth Banks’ Effie, and the two look much more “together” than the bunker versions seen in Mockingjay – Part 1. Speaking with EW, which premiered the image, Francis Lawrence calls Mockingjay – Part 2 the most emotional and the most satisfying of the bunch, and the »

Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård). What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.
The Diary of a Teenage Girl stars Brit Bel Powley (Benidorm), Kristen Wiig (Welcome To Me), Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) and Christopher Meloni (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), and is set for release August 7th.

Firefly, Season 1, Episode 4, “Shindig”
Directed by Vern Gillum
Aired November 1st, 2002 on Fox
Welcome to Sound on Sight’s summer look back at Firefly, the beloved yet short-lived series that aired on Fox during the 2002-2003 TV season. Every Thursday, we will revisit an episode at a time of the show’s one and only season, in the order that they were meant to be seen. The correct sequence is accurately reflected on most, if not all, streaming services that currently have the show, but for those watching via other methods, the accurate order can be found here. Now, without further ado, time to spend some time with the most entertaining group of grifters in The ‘Verse.
Another episode that aired out of order during the original run (it aired sixth, when it is fourth in the natural order), “Shindig” is an episode »

Fox’s upcoming adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic series Lucifer has gone through a bit of a casting shuffle. According to Deadline, the show has lost actor Nicholas Gonzalez, who will be replaced by True Blood and Arrow alum Kevin Alejandro.
The role is that of a gruff homicide detective for the Lapd, who grows wary of the eponymous former Underworld ruler’s burgeoning relationship with his wife and daughter.

No reason for Gonzalez’s exit was given, and it sounds like his part in the pilot will remain intact despite the role swap. That means there’s going to be a slight bit of confusion for viewers when the show debuts next midseason. Still, Alejandro should be a fine replacement, so I’m excited to see what he does with the role.

Several of the supporting actors from the first Magic Mike movie have opted not to return for the sequel, but the ones who did have really made the most of it — none more than Joe Manganiello. His character Big Dick Richie was just an overmuscled sight-gag in Steven Soderbergh's original flick, but in Magic Mike Xxl (out today), Manganiello practically becomes the co-lead of the movie, flexing and strutting on a Florida road-trip with Mike (Channing Tatum) and his male-stripper pals. The True Blood alum also gets the movie's best scene, a riotous mini-mart sequence where Richie improvises a sensual, self-parodying routine to one of the most famous boy-band songs ever. Magnaniello hopped on the phone with Vulture recently to discuss how that sequence came about, his thoughts on onscreen nudity, and the freak injury that almost cut his stripping time short.One of the most shocking things about »

Sneak Peek new Season 3 footage from Showtime's "Masters Of Sex", plus new images of actress Lizzy Caplan aka the series' sexologist 'Virginia Masters' in the July/August 2015 issue of "Playboy Magazine":
"I think I drank 'Grey Goose', kept in the freezer from the night before and mixed into a bottle of 'Vitaminwater'," said Caplan about her first nude scene in the TV series "True Blood".
"...it was a surprisingly delicious cocktail. I drank the entire bottle and had to get my stomach pumped. I was encouraged to get loose. For that 'True Blood' scene I had to walk across a room wearing only tiny panties and climb on a guy, and that was it.'
"Unfortunately that's not an option on 'Masters', even for the more intimidating nude scenes, because they're always in the middle of the day, with nine pages of intense dialogue.
"Because I was mainly known for doing comedy, »

News has been leaked about the directing responsibilities for the sixth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" (via Entertainment Weekly). The list returns a few standouts from last season and adds a few new names into the mix. Episodes 1 & 2 will be handled by Jeremy Podeswa. He directed one of my favorite episodes from season five, "Kill the Boy" as well as the supremely unpopular "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken". He's been working with HBO for a while having also directed episodes of "True Blood", "The Newsroom", "Boardwalk Empire". Episodes 3 & 4 go to "Game of Thrones" newbie Daniel Sackheim. Recently he's contributed great work for the the FX original series "The Americans" including the standout season three finale. His work on "The Americans" proves he can handle meditative episodes with punches of action, a description that usually applies to mid-season "Thrones" episodes. Episodes 5 & 6 will also be helmed by a newcomer, Jack Bender. Bender is »

The first major cast additions for Gotham‘s upcoming second season have arrived. Now that Fish Mooney is out of the picture, there’s a spot open in the infamous city for a new villain to rise through the ranks, and it seems like that vacancy will be filled by a new dynamic duo: DC Comics villainess Tigress and her brother.
Gracepoint and Cult actress Jessica Lucas has been cast as Tabitha Galavan, who goes on to become Tigress, while True Blood and Orphan Black alum James Frain will take on the role of her brother, Theo.
Deadline describes Theo Galavan as a billionaire industrialist who is “the savior the city has been waiting for – sexy, heroic, and lovingly devoted to his sister Tabitha.” Gotham’s saviors always come with a catch, however, and Galavan will be no exception. His altruism comes with a veiled centuries-old vendetta. He and Tabitha »

Yesterday it was announced that James Frain (True Blood, Orphan Black) has signed on to appear in the second season of Gotham as Theo Galavan, the brother of the DC villain Tabitha Galavan, a.k.a. Tigress, and now TV Line is reporting that Jessica Lucas (Evil Dead, Gracepoint) has nabbed the role of Tabitha.
According to the site, Gotham’s version of Tigress “is the lead enforcer for her brother Theo, a billionaire industrialist hell-bent on taking over Gotham . Described as sexy and violent — and toting a bullwhip! — she’s the opposite of her cold and calculating brother, deriving a sensual pleasure from the mayhem she’s tasked with making.”
