Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

Mad Max” Rules: For a film that didn’t have much interest in it going into Comic-Con, George Miller’s “Mad Max” (pictured, above) played huge for Warner Bros., earning raves from the thousands who watched the first trailer and action sequences from the film that rumbles into theaters next year, spreading positive word-of-mouth like wild fire across social media platforms. It’s certainly the darling of this year’s Con. »

12 highlights from the 'Big Bang Theory' 2014 Comic-Con panel

25 July 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The ongoing contract negotiations with CBS/Wbtv and the core cast of "The Big Bang Theory" loomed over Friday (July 25) morning's San Diego Comic-Con panel, or at least the negotiations loomed if you happened to be obsessed with such things. If you're not, the negotiations were a total non-factor in the spirited and amusing give-and-take between the show's writers, moderator Craig Ferguson and the Comic-Con crowd.  According to a Deadline.com story, question monitors at the panel prevented Deadline from asking about the negotiations, which raises exactly two issues for me: 1) The writers of "The Big Bang Theory," for the most part, could hardly have less to do with negotiations that are going on far, far, far above their paygrade or job description. Even the highest ranking writers on the panel, folks like co-creator Bill Prady and showrunner Steve Molaro, could hardly have less to do with those negotiations and »

'Big Bang Theory' at Comic-Con: When Leia met Vader, a Wil Wheaton appearance, & more

25 July 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Big Bang Theory, no surprise, is a major hit with the Comic-Con crowd. When the show’s writers and producers gathered for a panel at the con, they delivered a consistently entertaining panel, with a few surprise guests and a couple of tidbits about the show’s upcoming eighth season.

Things kicked off with an appearance from Garfunkel and Oates (a.k.a. Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who played Lucy on Big Bang). The geeky folk duo wrote “If I Didn’t Have You,” the song Howard sang to Bernadette this season, and they serenaded the Ballroom 20 audience »

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer and Comic-Con Panel Recap: Cast and Producers Tease “Spectacular Scope”

25 July 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Breaking Bad over and the second half of Mad Men’s final season poised to wrap up next spring, AMC has struggled a bit to find original programming to match its early successes.  That said, one new show hit really, really, really big.  Entering its fifth season this fall, The Walking Dead is not only a ratings juggernaut on cable television, it also gives network favorites like The Big Bang Theory a run for their money in terms of viewership.  Despite a sort of revolving door of showrunners and behind-the-scenes skirmishes, the ratings have continued to grow and its commercial popularity remains higher than ever.  With a spinoff series in the works as well, The Walking Dead franchise is likely to keep AMC afloat for quite some time. As they do every year, much of The Walking Dead cast (yes, even Norman Reedus) and executive producers Scott M. Gimple, »

Comic-Con: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Team on Season 8, ‘Star Wars’ Trivia

25 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ juggernaut comedy “The Big Bang Theory” invaded Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 on Friday morning, with latenight host Craig Ferguson moderating a lively discussion with the writers and executive producers.

Garfunkel and Oates (comedy-folk duo Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome) — who wrote Howard’s song to Bernadette, “If I Didn’t Have You” — performed a special version of the nerdy tune at the Q&A.

Star Wil Wheaton appeared midway through the panel in an orangutan mask — an homage to “Serial Ape-ist 2: Monkey See, Monkey Kill,” the movie within the show that his character is filming with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) — and the producers showed a spectacularly campy mock trailer from the fictional flick during the session.

There was much talk of “Star Wars” at the panel, given that stars James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher appeared in one of last season’s most memorable installments — and showrunner Steve Molaro admitted »

Perhaps fittingly, the cast wasn't actually wasn't in attendance. Instead, the panel was only made up of the show's writers and executive producers Bill Prady and Steve Molaro, who shared some fun facts and a few details about the upcoming eighth season:

Star Wars' James Earl Jones And Carrie Fisher Only Recently Met For The First Time

25 July 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Both Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones are true legends of the Star Wars franchise. The former, of course, played the beautiful and heroic Princess Leia in the original sci-fi franchise, while the latter lent his deep, booming voice to the dark, foreboding presence of Darth Vader. Because one was on the set while the other was doing all his work in a recording booth, however, the two never actually got to meet. that is, until they both guest starred on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Earlier this morning, the writing staff of the CBS sitcom was on-stage at San Diego Comic-Con, and while discussing the Season 7 episode "The Convention Conundrum" and the cameos made by both Fisher and Jones, showrunner Steve Motaro revealed an interesting new bit of Star Wars trivia. According to the writer, the two actors. time on set was actually the first time that »

Emmy Guest Star Nominees Prove Integral to Storytelling

25 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A long time ago in another TV galaxy — we’re talking eight, even 10 years ago — the “guest star” appearance was a pretty well-defined event; the famous Hollywood actor or Broadway actress would turn up on an episode of a hit show, interact briefly with the well-oiled cast, toss off a few bon-mots, and depart, never to be seen again.

That’s all changed. Today, series creators, writers and showrunners carefully craft stories and arcs for “guest” spots, as evidenced by such varied turns as Jane Fonda’s in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” Nathan Lane’s in “Modern Family,” Joe Morton’s in “Scandal,” Diana Rigg’s in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Beau Bridges in Showtime’s “Master of Sex,” Bob Newhart’s in CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” and Paul Giamatti’s in PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” all Emmy nominees.

For Lane, who just earned his third nomination on ABC »

25 July 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was little change in the Thursday primetime ratings race this week, with CBS’ “Big Brother” and Fox’s “Hell’s Kitchen,” in its finale, the night’s top original programs among young adults.

According to preliminary “live plus same-day” national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” averaged a 2.1 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall — winning the 9 o’clock hour across the board. It was down a tick in the demo and up a smidge in total viewers from last week. CBS opened the night with repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” (1.8/8 in 18-49, 7.1 million viewers overall) and “The Millers” (1.3/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall) and closed with an encore “Elementary” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 3.7 million viewers overall).

“Big Bang” won its timeslot across the board and was the night’s No. 2 broadcast in young adults and No. 1 in total viewers. CBS led among networks in 18-49, 25-54 and total viewers. »

TV Ratings: 'Big Brother' leads Thursday as 'Hell's Kitchen' finale is flat

25 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, July 24, 2014. Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" failed to get a big finale bump and also failed to help the network upset the normal Thursday order. "Big Brother" was still the night's top show in the key demographic, while a "Big Bang Theory" repeat still led the TV night overall. The night also saw very small audience bumps for all of NBC's originals, though "Hollywood Game Night," "Welcome to Sweden," "Working the Engels" and "Last Comic Standing." Also flat? Fox's impressively steady, if not impressively strong, "Gang Related." ABC's two-hour season [series?] finale for "Black Box" was up a little as it ended its run. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.4 rating for Thursday night, beating out Fox's 1.2 rating in the key demographic. NBC was third with a 1.0 key demo rating, followed by ABC's 0.8 key demo rating. The CW averaged only a 0.1 key demo rating »
