Abbott government calls on internet providers to punish illegal downloaders

8 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Malcolm Turnbull and George Brandis release a discussion paper calling for ISPs to police online piracy

Australians embracing the internet - but as a supplement to TV

The Abbott government has moved to crack down on illegal downloading, saying internet service providers (ISPs) will be forced to take reasonable steps to prevent it including possible sanctions against offending customers.

The proposals, contained in a discussion paper, are likely to be controversial with Australian consumers who are among the worlds most prolific illegal downloaders of popular shows such as Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.

Star Wars: Episode VIII Director Reveals Two Classic Movies That Will Inspire His Film

16 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you aren't already excited for Rian Johnson's Star Wars movie, you're in good need of an attitude adjustment. Back in 2005, the young director exploded on the scene with his fantastic debut Brick, and has since brought us stylish and creative thrillers like The Brothers Bloom and Looper - not to mention some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad. Sadly we still have a long time to wait until his vision actually makes its way to theaters, but the filmmaker is already hard at work finding inspiration for what his movie will be. A guest on the 500th episodes of the Filmspotting podcast (via Chicago Sun Times), Johnson explained to the hosts that he can't tell anyone about what he's working on ("I.m really excited about all the things I can.t tell you"), but over the course of the interview he revealed that he and his »

Rian Johnson Jokes About 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Inspiration

18 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you look carefully at J.J. Abrams in his video released last week, in which he teased a new and improved X-Wing, there is a slight tremor in his voice. He reveals very little information, keenly aware of the Sith Lord studio exec’s open hand pointed directly at Abrams’s neck.

So much of the upcoming Star Wars production has been cloaked in secrecy, and that does not look to be changing anytime soon. But at least Rian Johnson — who was recently tapped to direct Episode VIII and oversee Episode IX — is good humored about it.

In a podcast interview for Filmspotting’s 500th episode, set to air this weekend, Johnson assured fans that Lucasfilm did not hire him because of his skills.

Johnson jested:

“I can only assume it was a clerical error, like in the movie Brazil.  There’s a Brian Johnson out there who is really mad. »

Disney's Jungle Book Snares Christopher Walken And Giancarlo Esposito

19 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Disney has been putting a lot of effort into creating an enticing ensemble for their live-action re-imagination of The Jungle Book. The latest addition to the cast is a pair of heralded and established performers. Academy Award winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter) has signed on along with Giancarlo Esposito, who earned an Emmy nomination for his work as Gus Fring on the highly-acclaimed TV drama Breaking Bad. Director Jon Favreau has pulled together an incredible cast that not only includes Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito, but also Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Ben Kingsley and newcomer Neel Sethi. Disney first adapted Rudyard Kipling's novel about a boy raised in the jungle back in 1967, as a cartoon musical. Favreau's version will replace the hand-drawn animals for computer-generated ones, who will likely have a photo-realistic look. Only Neel Sethi will appear in the movie in the flesh, as he »

Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery: What’s New, What Isn’t, and What’s Missing

22 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Twin Peaks was a phenomenon, one whose impact far outlived its two seasons, and one whose resonance can’t be overstated. Well, unless you want to claim (as some have) that David Lynch and Mark Frost’s small-town murder-mystery-supernatural-suspense series was somehow the inspiration for Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and The Wire. But even if Peaks isn’t responsible for every important show that came after it, a good case can be made that, had it not aired on network TV to (admittedly short-lived) widespread acclaim, other genre-twisting dramas — from The X-Files to Lost — might never have gotten their chance at primetime. Just shy of 25 years after its debut, Peaks’ DNA can be found all over the storytelling choices in The Killing, Hannibal, and, most recently, Fargo and True Detective. This week’s release of the mammoth Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery Blu-ray collection — which presents the 30-episode series »

‘We Hate Paul Revere': Ron Livingston Joins AMC Comedy Pilot

22 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ron Livingston (“Swingers,” “Sex and the City”) has been added to the cast of AMC’s comedy pilot “We Hate Paul Revere.” A comedy veteran, Livingston will star as the famed Revolutionary rider in the pilot, also starring Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner.

Sandler and Wenner will also be writing and executive producing the half-hour pilot. Matt Piedmont (“Saturday Night Live,” “The Spoils of Babylon”) is on board to direct with Troy Miller as a non-writing executive producer through his Dakota Films.

“We Hate Paul Revere” tells the story of two brothers trying to find their place in colonial Boston.

The pilot is a new genre for the network, which is currently prepping to roll out the highly-anticipated “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul.” In March AMC also revealed a development slate that included unscripted projects and comedies alongside new drama pieces.

“We Hate Paul Revere” is set to begin »

New Trailer for NBC's 'Constantine'

29 July 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With the exception of Marvel's Agents of Shield, and a few 1/2 hr comedies, I don't watch much network TV. I'm no hipster about it, I just find it a little daunting to commit 22 hours a year to a TV show (unless it's Lost, but even then the last three seasons were only 13 episodes each), where as cable usually gets the job done (with much better results) in 10 - 12 episodes. Just look at Breaking Bad, True Detective, Fargo or Sons of Anarchy to see how cable is killing it lately.

At any rate, we're here to talk about network TV. NBC is brining DC Comics' Constantine to network TV, and you can see the new trailer below.

Here's a quick synopsis:

Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine, an irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert waging war against the forces of darkness — from both within himself and the outside world. »

What does an episode of 'Friends' look like without any jokes?

29 July 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Taking the jokes out of an episode of Friends it like taking the meth out of an episode of Breaking Bad—it’s just wrong. And if you take the jokes out of season six’s “The One with the Apothecary Table” specifically, laughter is quickly replaced with judgment, Pottery Barn hatred, and Joey’s girlfriend Janine Lecroix, who’s just as annoying as when there were jokes involved.

The show still manages to be funny, however, because the writing wasn’t the only thing making viewers laugh. Watching Monica hit Janine with a trash bag will never be anything but immensely satisfying. »

Watch: 'Game Of Thrones' Star Sophie Turner In Trailer For 'Another Me' & Music Video For Bastille's "Oblivion"

29 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With “Breaking Bad” over for almost a year and “Mad Men” winding down, “Game of Thrones” has officially clinched the title of “Everyone’s Favorite Show That No One WIll Stop Talking About,” though it could be said the show took the lead in the wake of the infamous “The Rains of Castamere” episode. The fantasy epic's popularity has afforded some members of the large ensemble opportunities to stretch their legs outside of Westeros. The latest to venture outside that brutal land? None other than Sansa Stark, Sophie Turner, courtesy of a new trailer indicating her new project. Following this year’s “Enemy” and “The Double” comes “Elegy” director Isabel Coixet’s “Another Me.” The new film follows Turner as the teenaged Fay, whose perfect life is upended when she’s stalked by a mysterious doppelganger who has her eyes set on assuming Fay’s identity.

The Jungle Book — Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito Join Cast

29 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Christopher Walken and Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito have joined the cast of Disney's live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book. Walken will voice the ape King Louie, and Giancarlo Esposito will voice Akela the wolf. They join Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, and Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha.

Much to the joy of many GeekTyrant readers, director Jon Favreau has cast young unknown actor Neel Sethi as Mowgli, who will be the only actor to appear on screen.

It's interesting how advanced CGI has become with movies like the recent Planet of The Apes series, the visual effects are completely immersive. No word yet on how they will animate the animals, I'm just hoping we see Walken in one of those gray motion capture suits doing some soft shoe.

The Jungle Book will inspire man-cubs everywhere October 9, 2015 (USA). »

Disney’s The Jungle Book Adds Giancarlo Esposito And Christopher Walken

28 July 2014 8:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney’s upcoming adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book has been ahead of a competing project set up at Warner Bros. for a very long time, and that’s not changing today. The Disney version, which Jon Favreau is directing, just added Breaking Bad alum Giancarlo Esposito and acting legend Christopher Walken to its already impressive voice cast (to compare, Andy Serkis’ WB adaptation doesn’t have a single actor cast yet).

Esposito, whose turn as Gus Fring on Breaking Bad earned him numerous accolades including a Critics’ Choice Award, will be voicing Akela, the leader of the wolf pack. Meanwhile, Walken, a prolific A-lister who won an Oscar for The Deer Hunter and has racked up many awards since, will be lending his iconic vocals to the role of King Louie, the ruler of a troop of monkeys and apes.

The pair join a voice cast including »

Christopher Walken in Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’ May be the Next Great Jazz Orangutan

28 July 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Jungle Book is seriously crushing the casting game right now. This morning, Deadline revealed that two new actors have come aboard the all-singing, all-dancing, all-cg wildlife pic directed by Jon Favreau (as opposed to the other one, coming from Andy Serkis). Giancarlo Esposito, best known for portraying a dark-universe Colonel Sanders on Breaking Bad, will play the wolf Akela. And Christopher Walken, best known for a lifetime of skeezing people out by being Christopher Walken, will play the orangutan King Louie. Those two extra-talented thespians join Ben Kingsley as the panther Bagheera (yes, splendid), Lupita Nyong’o as mother wolf Raksha (really, really great), Scarlett Johansson as the python Kaa (this is perfect) and Idris Elba as the film’s antagonist, the tiger Shere Khan (good god yes). Also, there’s some newcomer named Neel Sethi playing Mowgli, but  he is not a well-loved Hollywood star voicing an extremely appropriate animal character. Temper »

One set, two actors, all dialogue: TV's best 'bottle' episodes

28 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sunday night’s episode of Masters of Sex, titled “Fight,” was one of the series’ best. It stuck the show’s two main characters, Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and his assistant/lover Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), in a single hotel room and then let them batter out their anxieties and anger through flirtation, role play, and sex, all while an actual boxing match rages on TV.

In TV parlance, episodes like “Fight,” where characters are restricted to a few sets, are often called “bottle episodes”—they’re cheaper to make (you don’t have to build new sets or »
