The "Under The Dome" TV series, which stars Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad"), Mike Vogel ("The Help"), Rachelle Lefevre ("Twilight"), Colin Ford ("Supernatural"), Jeff Fahey ("Lost"), Britt Robertson ("The Secret Circle") and more, follows the panic and chaos that grips the inhabitants of Chester's Mill after a giant, impenetrable dome inexplicably traps the town.
But the legendary horror and suspense writer is far from new to the medium of television: He's appeared in "The Shining" miniseries, "The Simpsons," "Kingdom Hospital" (which he also produced) and "Sons of Anarchy, »

Cannes, France — The annual Cannes festival on the French Riviera is the grandest platform in the world for the highest ambitions of film, a place where the art form is worshipped with wild passion and adoring reverence. Movies are projected pristinely in regal theaters, where they're greeted by the world's cinephiles with feverish excitement.
But even at this bastion of the big screen, director after director has come through preaching the opportunities of the small screen. Up and down the Croisette, talk of TV's ascendance is rampant.
"The way that things are moving because of the financing of films, television has almost become where a lot of people seek creativity," said Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, who premiered at the festival his Bangkok noir "Only God Forgives," starring Ryan Gosling. "It's opened up a whole new arena."
Danish TV's current quality has spread internationally (including "The Killing," which was remade in America). Refn, »
Thanks to the Daily Mail and user Cdndutchie#74 over on Flickr we're gifted with a number of new behind the scenes production snaps from Gareth Edwards' large lizard reboot 'Godzilla'. The new selection of images features a destroyed fishing village as well as terrified Japanese school children running for their lives against a large blue screen. Leaves me wondering if in fact the big 'G' is just a clumsy misunderstood reptile more than a mindless oversized beast keen on wreaking havoc. Aaron Taylor-Johnson ('Kick-Ass 2'), Elizabeth Olsen ('Silent House'), Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins ('Made in Dagenham'), David Strathairn ('Lincoln'), Ken Watanabe ('Inception'), Richard T. Jones ('Event Horizon'), Patrick Sabongui, Yuki Morita, Brian Markinson, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk and Bryan Cranston ('Breaking Bad') all face the scary scaled bastard in some form or another. »
Did Save Me have you shouting hallelujah?
NBC’s newest comedy premiered Thursday (8/7c) with two back-to-back episodes. In them, we meet Beth Harper (played by Anne Heche, Men in Trees), a Midwestern wife and mother who has a near-death experience in her kitchen after choking on a hero sandwich.
When she’s revived, she claims to be able to receive messages from God. This mortifies her daughter Emily (Madison Davenport, Shameless) and stymies Beth’s husband Tom (Michael Landes, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman)… who’s got a different kind of religious moment happening on the regular »

AMC's Breaking Bad doesn't return for its final season until August, but over the past few months the drama series has been popping up in an alarming number of real life events. First, Boston bombing suspect Dzohkhar Tsarnaev tweeted he learned how to "dispose of a corpse" from the show. Then someone sent the poison substance ricin, which plays a major role in the show's plot, to President Obama. But today's news is somehow even more eerie. »

The actor has been at Cannes making a documentary, Seduced and Abandoned, about the film festival. Here he talks about the state of his profession today
Where I've ended up, I'm pretty content. I see the people at the top of the movie business today and I compare their careers with those at the top 40 years ago. I wouldn't trade places with those that dominate today; I don't necessarily want what they have. I want the choices they have but I look at some of the films they make and think: "You could get anybody to play those parts."
They'll roll out a film like Lincoln every now and again with Kushner and Spielberg and Day-Lewis – who is someone I worship. I saw him at the SAG awards and I said: "Do you realise what your career means to other actors? You give them hope that there is still some purity in acting. »

Working on the trailer for highly anticipated video game Destiny by Activision and Bungie are director Jon Favreau (Iron Man), actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution), visual effects company Digital Domain, and advertising firm 72andSunny; the 60 second spot premiered online today and will air during the NBA playoffs on Saturday.
Digital Domain has released a series of images which utilized the Moon and Mars environments directly from the game engine and incorporated camera angles which respect the geometry of the source material. Motion-capture performers were recruited resulting in CG and live-action elements being blending together under the watchful eyes of Dd Visual Effects Supervisors Jay Barton and Richard Morton. “Digital Domain approached this spot as filmmakers,” stated Jon Favreau. “The artistic vision they brought along with the technology made for a fun collaboration."
In the past, we've featured cool live-action commercials for the Halo video game series, and so we figured it couldn't hurt to highlight a new game from game developers at Bungie and Activision. That game is Destiny, and it's been in the works for quite some time. Now the game is poised to debut on the Playstation 4, and a live-action trailer for the video game has just debuted, and it's pretty bad ass. What's also cool about the ad is that it's directed by Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau and it also features "Revolution" and "Breaking Bad" star Giancarlo Esposito. At the very least, this has me interested in the new game. Watch! The trailer for Bungie and Activision's video game Destiny, directed by Jon Favreau (via The Playlist): Everything changed with the arrival of the Traveler. It sparked a Golden Age when our civilization spanned the solar system, »

Not that it needs it, but the highly anticipated videogame "Destiny," from the folks behind "Halo" and "Call of Duty," have pulled out all the stops for the game's first trailer. Not only does the 60-second teaser mix live-action with graphics -- unusual for a videogame -- it's got some big names behind it. "Iron Man's" Jon Favreau directs, and Giancarlo Esposito -- best known as Gus Fring from "Breaking Bad" -- is seen reading "the really important part" of "The Law for the Wolves" by Rudyard Kipling, presumably to his son.

Xbox unveiled its brand new game console earlier this week, and as part of the announcement, a new game from Bungie and Activision was teased. The team behind Halo is launching a new franchise called Destiny, and a live-action trailer for the game has been released online. In the world of the game, the hero is a Guardian of the last safe city on Earth following the arrival of “the Traveler.” This live-action/CG trailer, directed by Jon Favreau, stars Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution) as a Guardian of the City who is recalling an important life lesson he once learned.

It's that time once again, boys and girls. The broadcast network TV season ended last night at 11, and now we move into the summer, which will be a mix of leftover network programs (set your clocks now for the return of "Zero Hour"!), cheap foreign imports and co-productions (ABC's "Motive," NBC's "Crossing Lines"), and a bunch of cable series to be excited about ("Breaking Bad"!), nervous about ("The Killing"!) and some combination of the two ("The Newsroom"!). As always, I'll be mixing and matching in terms of what shows I'm writing about — will I have enough new things to »

Picture your perfect world, a utopia if you will… See the technology at your fingertips, the neighbors who get along so peacefully, the clean air. Now, tell me what’s on television. Is there a new episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead coming to your wide screen every week for infinity? Yes, that’s my perfect world, and Walking Dead network execs say, hey, it could happen.
“We hope that zombies live forever,” said AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan on Wednesday at the Barclays Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference. “And we’ve just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like,” said Sapan.
That statement is very true. So, how many seasons can the show keep going? Theoretically, as cast members die, they can be replaced with new ones, right? This idea is a fangirl’s dream! Just like a zombie, the show could potentially have a very long life… »

Unlike the struggling survivors of the zombie apocalypse, AMC's "The Walking Dead" seems to have a very, very long life ahead of it. AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan made this fact very clear at the Barclays Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference, saying that unlike ending hit shows "Breaking Bad" and "Mad Men," "The Walking Dead" is pretty much guaranteed a long life.
"We hope that zombies live forever, and we’ve just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like," said Sapan, "so that we'll be sitting here at the Barclays conference in 2022 discussing the fact that 'Walking Dead' is not over... at that point, I think any one of the companies will have replaced the United States government and we'll be in a complete free enterprise world in which there are no nations."
"The Walking Dead" has become a cultural phenomenon, with its »

Cinema has historically considered itself superior to television, with executives and critics frequently sneering that a movie or documentary has a "made-for-tv" feel. But a number of significant Hollywood film-makers – including David Lynch, Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone – have moved to the junior medium for mini-series or documentaries and now Steven Soderbergh has paid a compliment, if a slightly qualified one, to home entertainment. "In terms of cultural real estate," Soderbergh said at the Cannes film festival, "TV has really taken control of the conversation that used to be the reserve of movies. It's sort of a second golden age of television, which is great for the viewers. … If you like your stories to go narrow and deep, TV is exciting. »
