It was a pretty great year for pop culture, so chances are there is going to be some awesome merchandise under the tree this year. The complete box set of Breaking Bad? Star Wars collectibles in preparation for the new films? They shouldn’t have!
But there’s always a risk that someone who doesn’t watch the show, or hasn’t read the book is about to buy you something horribly wrong. Innocence and lack of interest when buying gifts can result in a very awkward Christmas.
At the moment, you can find toy shops, supermarkets, TV adverts and just about every other kind of business slapping the faces of Anna, Elsa and Olaf onto everything they can. But there’s more to a Pop Culture Christmas than just Disney’s Frozen.
Christmas for most people (especially kids) is all about gift giving and getting. Novelty »

Pedro Pascal, who is best known as Oberyn Martell (a.k.a. The Red Viper) on HBO's Game of Thrones, is in negotiations to join Legendary's Untitled Great Wall Project. Matt Damon is still in talks to star, after entering negotiations back in September. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was also in talks to sign on back in September, but negotiations broke down and he is no longer involved. The project will mark the English-language directing debut for Chinese filmmaker Yimou Zhang (Hero).
The story will follow an elite force making a last stand for humanity on the Great Wall of China. Earlier reports revealed that the story will delve into the history of the Great Wall, and the dark secrets that are hid under the massive structure. The plot centers on a group of 15th Century British soldiers who come across the wall as it's being built, as they »
“Guess I got what I deserved.” Badfinger’s “Baby Blue” provided a fitting sendoff to arch criminal Walter White in the final scene of Vince Gilligan’s landmark television drama Breaking Bad. We guess that’s all the show had to say. All that remained was silence, and, honestly, a fairly formidable void. Where now would audiences go? What did we deserve? As far back as we can remember, crime films have been a staple of American cinema. From the roaring days of James Cagney and the Warner gangster movies to the golden age of Scorsese, it seemed evident that the one place crime almost always paid was at the theater. Still, when looking back over the year in film that was 2014, it can’t be denied that the genre took some rather interesting turns and indeed experienced an embarrassment of riches that would make Henry Hill’s Lufthansa heist seem like small potatoes.

“Gracepoint” was billed as a 10-episode limited series although there was hope that it would be renewed for more episodes. But the overall ratings were weak for the Fox rendition.
Fox had no comment.
Here’s the “Broadchurch” trailer:

To watch a truly satisfying finale is that rare thing, like getting to see Abraham Lincoln's unicorn horn. Our expectations as fans are often so high, it's almost impossible to meet them. And it seemed like Stephen Colbert was winking at that idea in the final, go-big episode of The Colbert Report, which featured an all-star singalong to "We'll Meet Again" that included (among many others) Henry Kissinger, an astronaut, Big Bird, Bill Clinton, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan (who was still chained up in Colbert's basement after his own finale) before its host flew off in a sleigh with three beyond-your-wildest-dreams, »

When it was announced that Grimmy the Grim Reaper would be Stephen Colbert's final guest on The Colbert Report, fans speculated whether the future Late Show host was killing off his satirical character. Instead, Colbert's Colbert became immortal, and he closed out his nine-year Comedy Central run with a performance for the ages.
The host ended his Report with an all-star performance of Vera Lynn's "We'll Meet Again," featuring "We Are the World"-style appearances by an incredible cast of singers, actors, politicians and pundits. First out to »
As the premiere of Better Call Saul edges ever closer, AMC has released a new image of Bob Odenkirk as the shady lawyer Saul Goodman – sorry, Jimmy McGill – from the Breaking Bad prequel / spin-off series…
See Also: New trailer and sneak peek for Better Call Saul
Set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, wove with dark humor.

The world rejoiced when Warner Bros. and DC announced that they would deliver the first ever live-action Wonder Woman movie to cinemas in 2017. For seven decades, the iconic comic book character has been continually passed over in favour of her male counterparts – Superman and Batman – until Zack Snyder finally opened the door to her with the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Now, with the role cast and actress Gal Gadot apparently locked in for a multi-picture deal, we can look forward to Princess Diana of Themyscira asserting her status on the big screen for the foreseeable future.
Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad) is on board to direct, and Warner Bros. announced that screenwriter Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) would pen the script. So far, so good – until fellow screenwriter and producer Arash Amel (Grace Of Monaco) tweeted the following rumour:

Well, it's the end of an era. After nine wonderfully satirical years, Stephen Colbert has taken his final bow as host of The Colbert Report, and it could not have been more glorious. Of course, he would never leave us without the biggest most beautifully self-congratulatory episode of the Report ever. Aside from giving one last Shout Out and one final installment of The Word, Stephen did the unthinkable: He defeated death. This rendered him immortal, so if anyone went into this series finale thinking it would pull a Sons of Anarchy or Breaking Bad and (spoilers!) kill off its main character, you would be very wrong. Then, of course, it was time for a musical number. Stephen started out solo on »
In a recent interview, Ritter explained about her full-frontal nude scene in a notorious early episode of "Don't Trust the B in Apt 23".
Although she played the scene in the nude, her body was blurred strategically by the network censors.
"I was dancing in a rap video" she said about the scene. "I wasn’t going to find anything flashier, so I was down for it...
"But on the day I was supposed to actually be naked...in front of all the crew guys.
"You catch them looking and you’re like, No!...
"But I got a 'Mystic Tan'...
"...so that made me feel less naked..."

Updated, 4:49 Pm: Pen American Center today expressed “profound regret” about Sony’s choice not to release The Interview on any platform. The group of 3,500 American writers who support free expression worldwide also called out New Regency for axing the planned North Korea-set film Pyongyang, which was to be directed by Gore Verbinski and star Steve Carell. “Pen has long documented the chilling effect that threats or acts of violence can have on free speech and creative expression,” the group said in a statement today. “The chilling effect of Sony’s decision has already been felt throughout the entertainment industry with New Regency’s cancellation of plans for the film Pyongyang. Complete suppression of the film would set a dangerous and deeply troubling precedent for other artists considering work on potentially controversial or offensive subjects. Pen urges Sony Pictures to release The Interview through every channel that does not pose a safety risk, »

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 »
