In this exclusive new image from the upcoming AMC show, Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike Erhmantraut (Jonathan Banks) are reunited again, with Saul looking intensely at Mike from afar.
Better Call Saul is set six years before Saul meets Walter White (Bryan Cranston). At the time, Saul is still known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut, who audiences will remember from Breaking Bad. The series will track Jimmy's transformation into a criminal lawyer.

Many thoughts on the season 1 finale of "Serial" coming up just as soon as I use Mail Kimp... Last month, I noted that the enormous, unprecedented popularity of "Serial" had people viewing it through the lens of a serialized TV drama — heck, I'm even doing a season finale review for a podcast like it was something that just aired on AMC — and wondered if the audience was going to hold this inherently messy true story to the standards of scripted fiction when it came time for the ending. Was Sarah Koenig holding something back from us for all this time? Would there be a definitive ending, or just a poetic meditation on the ambiguous nature of truth? And if it was the latter, would "Serial" fans react with the same outrage that fans of "Lost," "Battlestar Galactica," "The Sopranos," et al did when those shows didn't wrap things up in a neat and tidy bow? »

2014 has been a landmark year for comic book movies. Not only did we get two of Marvel's best-ever films (Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier), but the major studios announced enough future superhero adaptations to take us all the way up to 2019.
It's been a pretty landmark year for comic books too. It feels as though more genuinely exciting new titles launched in 2014 than in the past ten years combined, with DC, Marvel and especially Image taking big risks and creating some seriously compelling comics in the process.
We've picked out our 14 favourite comics from this year in terms of big-screen potential:
The Comic: On paper, Spread doesn't sound like the most original book on the market. Like The Walking Dead, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world where survivors fight off gruesome monsters and each other. As with The Thing, those monsters are giant shape-shifting »
Being a part of a major franchise is not always a good thing, in fact it can almost become a career killer for some.
In a new feature piece for New York Magazine, actress Natalie Portman spoke about the late film director Mike Nichols whom she worked with on "Closer" and received rave reviews for her performance. However, she claims that at the time no-one wanted to hire her because of a certain franchise she was involved with:
"Star Wars had come out … and everyone thought I was a horrible actress. I was in the biggest-grossing movie of the decade, and no director wanted to work with me. Mike wrote a letter to Anthony Minghella and said, ‘Put her in Cold Mountain, I vouch for her.’ And then Anthony passed me on to Tom Tykwer, who passed me on to the Wachowskis."
After the prequel trilogy ended, Portman ended up »

With rumours arriving that The Walking Dead spin-off may be a prequel, hot on the heels of the news that Syfy is pursuing a series about Superman's grandfather, titled Krypton, there are officially no more jokes. Anything you might say about making a comic book series set some ridiculous amount of time before the real story starts happening, can and will be seriously considered as a pitch by some network, somewhere.
A Newsroom-style series about The Daily Planet before Clark Kent started working there? A psychological procedural featuring Dr. Harleen Quinzel but no Joker? A jungle-set adventure series about Gorilla Grodd's granddad? We could keep going until the phone rings and someone makes us an offer for a pilot, but that would be an unnecessary amount of pre-amble before getting to the point, »

From Quentin Tarantino's all-star Hateful Eight table read to Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin emulating Michael Jordan in Space Jam, live script readings are now the Off-Broadway shows of Hollywood. On Thursday, December 18th, Juno director Jason Reitman will stage a reading of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back at Los Angeles' Ace Hotel with Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul taking on the role of Luke Skywalker.
The one-night-only event is the latest in a series of Reitman's monthly live script readings. "The first thing I »
In case you weren't aware, director Jason Reitman (Juno, Young Adult, Up In The Air) stages monthly live performances of movie scripts at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. He has previously put on readings of the likes of The Princess Bride, American Beauty, and The Apartment, but his latest is a bit of a departure: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Reitman has revealed several of his cast members to EW, and they include Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul as Luke Skywalker and the great J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Whiplash) as his dear old daddy, Darth Vader. There's also Stephen Merchant as C-3P0, Kevin Pollack as Yoda, and Dennis Haysbert as Lando Calrissian. Apparently we'll find out who'll play Princess Leia, Han Solo and the rest later today. You can hear from Reitman on why he chose that particular cast at the link below, and you can purchase »

15. Mad Men
Season 7, Part 1 of Mad Men should have been incredibly frustrating. Inspired by Breaking Bad, the show decided to have it final run split into two parts over two years and it originally sounded like an excuse to eke out the Don Draper franchise for another 12 months. We couldn't have been more wrong.
Allowing Matthew Weiner the chance to dive further in the dark psyches of the show's key players - Don, Peggy, Roger - the »

Concerned that its members’ scripts and personal data have been compromised, the Writers Guild of America West says it is following the attack on Sony Pictures very closely. “The security of the intellectual property created by guild members and the protection of their personal information are very important issues for us,” a WGA spokesman told Deadline. “We are also concerned about the effects that a breach like this has on Sony and other legitimate businesses.” Deadline also has reached out to SAG-aftra and the DGA for comment but has not heard back.
WGA is rightly concerned. Not only has its members’ personal information been stolen but so too has their work. Five Sony films, including four that had yet to be released, were dumped onto online file-sharing hubs in the first days of the attack. It’s not only a theft of Sony’s copyrighted material, but downstream, it also »

Instead of “Yo, bitch …” now it’s “Yoda, bitch.” (Sorry, couldn't resist.) Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul will take on the role of Luke Skywalker in director Jason Reitman’s one-night-only live-read of The Empire Strikes Back this Thursday, while fearsome Whiplash star J.K. Simmons will let the hate flow through him as Darth Vader. It’s part of an ongoing series of live performances of movie scripts Reitman stages each month, bringing in new actors to create a kind of cover version of beloved films. He has previously staged live-reads of The Princess Bride, Ghostbusters, American Beauty, and The Apartment, »

Anyone, who like myself, is anxiously awaiting Fargo Season 2 was probably pretty happy when we finally got some news on the upcoming season of the FX anthology series last week. It was announced that Kirsten Dunst (the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films) and Jesse Plemons (Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad) would be starring in Fargo Season 2, playing Peggy Blomquist, “a beautician with dreams of the big city” who is “trying to figure out who she is and what she really wants out of life” and Ed, Peggy’s husband, “a butcher’s assistant who is supportive of her quest, even if he doesn’t quite understand it.” However, while the characters that both Dunst and Plemons will be playing in Fargo Season 2 certainly intrigue me, what I find even more interesting is the decision to cast these two in such major roles in the show’s second season and how it goes against the typical… »
