Earlier this year, you may have heard of a Tribeca Film Festival drama that starred Faith Hill as a trailer trash mom in the Deep South. It’s true, but that’s not really all that “Dixieland” is about, though having a big country pop star in your movie probably doesn’t hurt. A movie that details cycles of violence, crime, and impoverished circumstances with a Romeo and Juliet-like narrative, “Dixieland” is the directorial debut of Hank Bedford — a former assistant to David O. Russell, Bennett Miller, and Tarsem Singh. Read More: Tribeca Review: ‘Dixieland’ Starring Riley Keough, Faith Hill & Chris Zylka The movie stars Chris Zylka from “The Leftovers” and Riley Keough from “Mad Max: Fury Road” and an actress you’re probably going to know a little bit better in 2016 thanks to leading her own show: Starz’s “The Girlfriend Experience,” from executive producer and creator Steven Soderbergh. »

Forgive loyal TV viewers lately if they’re beginning to feel like Charlie Brown, with writers of their favorite series playing the role of Lucy, tantalizingly dangling a football in front of them, only to snatch it away.
Certainly, “The Walking Dead” has played a version of that game, based on recent events (and Spoiler Alert for those who aren’t caught up). Not only did the series strongly imply the death of a significant character, Glenn (Steven Yeun), on screen, but then compounded that by removing his name from the credits and issuing an extremely cryptic statement about his future via the program’s companion discussion show, “The Talking Dead.”
In that same on-air forum, guest Damon Lindelof noted that one would hope “Dead’s” producers weren’t engaging in “a shenanigan,” a rather quaint way of saying that someone has pulled a devious trick. Yet Lindelof could easily be accused of the same, »

From Die Hard to Star Wars, we've started putting together our collection of favourite Christmas jumpers. Add yours!
Ridiculous woolly jumpers are as intrinsic to Christmas as turkey, Doctor Who and falling asleep on the sofa while your loved ones laugh at you. Nothing says ‘I can be fun and festive!” quite like a comical over-garment.
In recent years, we’ve noticed a massive influx in geek-friendly winter wear thanks to a range of websites seemingly dedicated to keeping us feeling warm but looking cool during the festive season. Either that, or they’re keen to make sure we spend most of December explaining the obscure knitted reference to our perplexed friends and relatives.
We’ve put 25 of our favourites (and links to the respective sites) in the gallery above, but we’re interested to see if you can do better. If you’ve got a Christmas »
We're a week away from the release of the updated edition of my last book, "The Revolution Was Televised." (As mentioned in this post last week, you can't pre-order the book, but you can pre-order the eBook single that just contains the revised "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad" chapters.) Though the book's not available to the public for seven more days, my publisher and HitFix have partnered up to give away several copies between now and Dec. 1. Just reply to the tweet below (I'll be updating it each time there's a new question) with your answer to that question, along with the hasthag #TheRevolutionWasTelevised.

Though AMC has had some popular scripted series that have run for years, many others have been cancelled after just one season. How are the current crop of shows doing? Which will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.
Scripted AMC Network shows listed: Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Fear the Walking Dead, Halt and Catch Fire, Hell on Wheels, Humans, Into the Badlands, Low Winter Sun, Mad Men, Turn: Washington Spies, and The Walking Dead.
There's lots of data that AMC execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient. Here's an updated listing of all of their recent/current primetime scripted shows.

"Tremors" fans: Kevin Bacon is back in the saddle for one of his most iconic roles. 25 years after the release of the cult horror/adventure classic, the "Following" star is set to reprise the role of Valentine "Val" McKee in a TV reboot of the film series, which is currently being shopped by the TV arm of low-budget horror king Blumhouse Pictures. Bacon, who will also serve as an executive-producer, opted out of all four sequels to the original film, all of which went direct to video. A previous TV series based on the films, "Tremors: The Series" featuring original star Michael Gross and future "Breaking Bad" thesp Dean Norris, lasted for a single season on Syfy in 2003. According to EW, which had the exclusive on the news, Bacon has previously expressed interest in returning to the franchise, telling IGN earlier this year: “I’d love to do something else »

Being that I don’t enjoy — and, by extension, bother with — much contemporary TV, perhaps you should take it with a grain of salt when I say that Sense8 is my favorite series in at least a decade, if not longer. Still, that prerequisite shouldn’t dull the effect of the Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski‘s show — directed by the former pairing, Tom Tykwer, James McTeigue, and Dan Glass — which is immensely entertaining, always takes advantage of the endless number of possibilities its concept offers, and evinces a crucial understanding of the many opportunities afforded by long-form storytelling.
It’s also a formally accomplished bit of work, which is thanks in no small part to the helping hand of cinematographer John Toll. It might be surprising that the who shot The Thin Red Line, Braveheart, and Almost Famous would head to a conceptually bizarre sci-fi TV show, but his »

With a few episodes still to go before season 2 wraps up, FX has already ordered Fargo season 3…
This one might not come as a huge surprise – FX has ordered season 3 of its acclaimed crime drama Fargo, before season 2 has even come to an end.
Despite his commitments to Fox and Marvel Studios’ in-development Legion series (based on a mutant with split-personality powers), Fargo’s creator Noah Hawley will find time in his schedule to continue writing and producing the Coen-brothers-inspired series for season 3.
“Year two of Fargo is an extraordinary achievement and, given Noah Hawley’s masterful storytelling, we can’t wait to see where the third, all-new version of Fargo takes us,” said Eric Schrier, a big cheese over at FX.
With Jessica Jones now on Netflix, the official Twitter account has released a brand new promo, which teases a connection between the series and sister Marvel show Daredevil by featuring a shot glass next to a business card for Nelson and Murdock: Attorneys at Law…

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in the action comedy Central Intelligence, which follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high-school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, he enlists the help of the former “big man on campus” (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into, it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than he can count.
Central Intelligence, which also stars Oscar nominee Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone), Aaron Paul (TV’s Breaking Bad) and Danielle Nicolet (TV’s The Game). The film, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re the Millers, Dodgeball), is released in the UK »

Syfy’s highly -anticipated new space thriller TV series "The Expanse" launches with a two-night premiere on Monday, December 14th and Tuesday, December 15th. The ten episode series will then premiere new episodes every Tuesday.
However, like many new series launches these days, the network is going online early and have posted the entirety of the pilot on a host of different online channels. All these channels are sadly geolocked to the United States so only people within the region can view it. If you are though, you can watch it via the Youtube embed below.
Budded the most ambitious series in the channel's history, the story is set two centuries in the future when humanity has colonized the solar system. Thomas Jane and Steven Strait play a detective and rogue ship captain respectively who team up to investigate the case of a missing young woman. What they discover could »

Update: We are currently having some issues with the embed code for the video and are working on getting them fixed. Stay tuned.
Last year, Syfy rolled out a bold mission statement to return to its roots, with the network expressing a particular desire to create science-fiction content that could stand shoulder to shoulder with the seminal Battlestar Galactica. Defiance may not be part of that renewed vision, though one of the more intriguing prospects to emerge on the network’s slate is The Expanse.
Due for a two-night premiere in mid-December, We Got This Covered has the maiden installment of Syfy’s budding hopeful for you to enjoy right now, offering you a sneak peek into a show that has been described as the most ambitious series in the network’s history.

Scripted by novelist and comic book writer Gregg Hurwitz, The Book of Henry follows “a precocious little boy, being raised by his single mother and serving as a surrogate father to his younger brother, who develops feelings for the girl next door and, to protect her from ongoing harm at the hands of her father, plots a murder.”
The Book of Henry is set for release next year, with a cast that includes Naomi Watts (Birdman), Jaeden Lieberher (St. Vincent), Jacob Tremblay (Room), Maddie Ziegler (Dance Moms), Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Sarah Silverman (I Smile Back) and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad »

A decade ago it would have been difficult to imagine Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman sharing top billing for a movie; however, in 2015, it’s hardly a surprise that the pair of iconic 90s stars – alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor – are stuck in a tepid remake of 2009’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar-winner El Secreto de sus Ojos (which translates to the English title Secret In Their Eyes).
For those unfamiliar with the original, it takes place in a world of departmental obstacles and corruptive cover-ups and follows a man named Ray (Ejiofor), who enlists the help of Claire (Kidman) to seek justice for their colleague Jess (Roberts) after her daughter’s dead body is melodramatically discovered in a dumpster.
Set amongst a team of counter-terrorism investigators, the plot alternately unfolds in 2002 – in the aftermath of the murder and paranoid wake of the 9/11 attacks – and in the present day, 2015 – as Ray asks Claire, »

It’s been two years since Walter White’s meth odyssey reached its explosive conclusion, the downtrodden chemistry teacher-turned-drug-kingpin going out in a hail of bullets and leaving Breaking Baddics everywhere facing the frightening prospect of turning cold turkey.
Our withdrawal symptoms had barely begun when spinoff show Better Call Saul came along to give us the fix we craved, a joyous hit of New Mexican criminal underbelly with transformative characters and a healthy dose of moral ambiguity.
Bob Odenkirk’s crooked lawyer Jimmy McGill proved that he has the wings to fly solo with a solid first season of the Breaking Bad offshoot, giving fans a taster of how he went from small-time attorney to the man who puts the criminal in criminal lawyer.
Fans won’t be calling on Saul again until next February when the second season debuts on AMC, so for the meantime, here are »

Here’s an unexpected one. ITV is bringing back its BAFTA-winning Cold Feet. New episodes will go into production in January 2016.
Series creator Mike Bullen has conceived the new episodes, and will write and executive produce for the new series. Stars James Nesbitt, Robert Bathurst, Hermione Norris, John Thomson, and Fay Ripley are all reuniting on the screen.
Here’s a synopsis, from the official press bumf:
“It’s been 13 years since Rachel’s untimely death. How has Adam coped without his soulmate, raising their son on his own? Do Pete and Jenny still spend their evenings on the sofa, except now they watch Endeavour instead of Morse? And what of David and Karen? They’d split up, but with three children between them, are the ties that bind still strong? »
