John Goodman Eyes Role Opposite Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren in Trumbo

46 minutes ago | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

It was shortly before the series finale of "Breaking Bad" last year that word broke of Bryan Cranston signing on to headline Trumbo, a biopic of blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo that Jay Roach (The Campaign, Game Change) will direct. Soon thereafter, Helen Mirren signed on to play gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. Now, The Wrap reports that the offer is out to John Goodman to play Hollywood producer Frank King. »

Will ‘Expendables 3’ Pre-Release Piracy Hurt Box-Office Revenue?

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

A pirated copy of Sylvester Stallone-starrer “The Expendables 3” hit the Internet last Wednesday. There have already been nearly 2 million illegal downloads of the film so far, with its theatrical debut still 16 days away.

Could this — counterintuitively — actually be a boon for the movie’s distributor, Lionsgate, and put more butts in theater seats? Some argue that piracy, in this case, could be a big win for Hollywood.

“Leaking a month before its release might just be the best thing that ever happened to ‘The Expendables 3,’” wrote The Verge’s David Pierce, who admitted he downloaded and watched a copy of the movie.

The “two-plus hours of near-flawless action porn” is tailor-made to be seen on the bigscreen, so the illicit copies floating around on torrent sites will only drive up ticket sales, in Pierce’s estimation. “I’m already counting down the days until I can see it in Imax, »

Shortly after it was announced at Comic-Con that “Weeds” alum Mary-Louise Parker will join “The Blacklist” season two in a recurring role, it’s been revealed that “Breaking Bad” actress Krysten Ritter is also adding her name to the list.

Why Do Certain Actors on Ensemble Shows Stand Out for Emmy Nominations?

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

Robert Altman would be proud. His signature ensemble filmmaking style has become the norm rather than the exception in dramatic series. However magnetic the leads, they’re invariably surrounded by distinctive character players who get multiple chances to shine across a typical season.

Which creates an annual knotty problem for Emmy voters as they consider the supporting categories. Some turns can be singled out as guest actor or actress — late-1980s additions conveniently allowing the academy to spread a little more wealth around. But nominators are still faced with tapping only a select few per skein. Even more mysteriously, they’re wont to proffer a nod one year, only to deny one the next for the very same role. For example, the first year “Modern Family” was eligible, everyone in the cast but Ed O’Neill received a nom. For the next three years, the entire ensemble was recognized. But this year, »

Emmys: Quirky Is the New Black

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

In much the same way that dramas like AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and HBO’s “The Sopranos” made flawed antiheroes easy to root for, a new wave of comedy is putting the oddball front and center. Instead of Jerry Seinfeld playing the straight man to his quirky friends or Michael Bluth watching his family unravel around him, characters like Zooey Deschanel’s Jess on Fox’s “New Girl” and Lena Dunham’s Hannah on HBO’s “Girls” celebrate their eccentricities.

The quirky lead has been a part of TV since “I Love Lucy” took home an Emmy in 1952, according to John Leverence, senior veep of awards at the TV Academy. He cites “The Jack Benny Show,” “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” and more recently, “Cheers” and “Frasier” as good examples of shows with off-kilter personalities at their core.

However, it’s just been in the past decade or so that »

Emmys 2014: Who Should Win Lead Actor in a Drama? Take Our Poll!

7 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Pop Quiz: When did Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston last take home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series? If you guessed 2013, 2012 or 2011 — a red ‘X’ and a loud ‘bzzzt’ are being sent in your direction.

This isn’t to say the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences hasn’t been good to Cranston — after all, he snagged the statuette in 2008, 2009 and 2010. But after sitting out 2011 due to ineligibility (Kyle Chandler triumphed that year for Friday Night Lights), Cranston has been beaten the last two Emmy seasons by Homeland‘s Damian Lewis and The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels. »

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

29 July 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | 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

29 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | 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

29 July 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | 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

29 July 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | 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

29 July 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | 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. »
