From the folks behind reality stalwart "Big Brother," 16 "die hard" adult campers will check in to USA Network's "Summer Camp" on July 11. The nefarious group will put down stakes at a lakeside retreat in Big Bear, Calif. to face off with each other in over-the-top classic-game inspired competitions. As contestants get sent home from camp along the way, the remaining campers are left to battle it out in the ultimate "Campathlon."
USA promises friendships, alliances and hookups, as "American Idol" finalist Matt Rogers plays camp counselor -- make that host -- of the show. You've seen the cast list, now Zap2it has your first look at the "Summer Camp" TV promo.

Fear not, Browncoats and others fond of Nathan Fillion! One of the reigning kings of the Con has confirmed that he will be in attendance at the San Diego Comic-Con this July.
The admission that the actor would be heading to Sdcc in the summer of 2013 came up in an interview with Collider. After spending precious seconds talking about his many film roles this summer -- Fillion has roles in "Monsters University," "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and "Much Ado About Nothing" -- he mentions all-too-briefly that Comic-Con is in the cards.
Despite Fillion's impressive list of current, Con-friendly films and his ongoing role as the lead on "Castle," those may not be the reason for his trip to San Diego. Instead, Fillion reveals simply that he will be attending the Nerd Machine event. This side project, founded by former "Chuck" star Zachary Levi as a sort of miniature Con-outside-the-real-Con, »
And now for some rather Smash-ing news: Megan Hilty has landed a series regular role opposite her former Smash co-star Sean Hayes in his new NBC comedy Sean Saves the World, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Earlier this year, the internet was blindsided with the announcement of the reformation of one of America's greatest hardcore legends, Black Flag, featuring original guitarist and main songwriter Greg Ginn and the band's short-lived sophomore singer Ron Reyes. This would include a performance at U.K.'s Hevy Fest this summer with further dates still being added daily as of this writing. This would mark the first Black Flag tour since Ginn put the Black Flag name on ice in 1986. The tour will also be in support of a new record that is being released this summer.
But just a mere hour-and-a-half after the news of the Black Flag reunion came another announcement to set the hardcore heads on fire, the formation of a band called Flag. Flag would feature original Black Flag singer and current Off! frontman Keith Morris manning the mic and fleshed out with Black Flag founding bass player Chuck Dukowski, »

Pilots are always a tricky business. Some make a spectacle of themselves with an extended runtime or are churned by adverts months in advances; some have the unenviable task of juggling world building, establishing character relations, and stringing out multiple storyline threads for the entirety of the series. Television pilots require a unique blend of instant gratification as well as playing the long game. A pilot has to establish many things, but above all, it must create the foundations for characters that audiences will fall for and become totally invested in. People tune in ritualistically for these characters week in and week out. Viewers form familial bonds and sometimes a sense of entitlement towards television characters which can result in a rabid fan base. A great pilot has to create »

When I was growing up, horror movies and popcorn happened every weekend. I have three brothers – two older half brothers and one younger brother. Naturally, I usually lost the battle over what movie we rented to three boys – they wanted all horror, all the time. I gradually became a horror fan myself (and now I’m obsessed), and I attribute my early horror love to my brothers, but also to Thom E. Eberhardt’s Night of the Comet (1984). Finally, a horror movie that was made for young girls – I had been lost, and Night of the Comet found me and made me a diehard fan of the genre. Not only that, but the film showed several more times on cable television, so I got to watch it over, and over, and over again. Released the same year that I was born, my brothers and I rented Night of the Comet »

USA is launching an action-packed reality competition series later this summer called "Summer Camp," which brings a group of adults campers together in Big Bear, Calif., where they will battle it out in competitions inspired by classic summer camp games.
At the end of the summer, the contestants will face off in a "Campathalon," an Olympic-style event. Friendships will form, alliances will crumble and hook-ups are inevitable -- it's camp.
Meaghan Cooper, "The Flirt" - (Age 27) - The boys had better watch out, because 27-year-old fitness model and country music artist Meaghan isn't afraid to use her looks as a weapon, and tends to leave a trail of men in her wake.

A few days ago I was lucky enough to attend the press conference at the Warner Bros. film lot in Los Angeles and talk to the cast of “Man of Steel.” Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Antje Traue, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Charles Rovin, David Goyer, and Hans Zimmer were all in attendance.
“Man of Steel” follows a young boy who learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
Below is what the cast had to say about the film.
I just want to ask Zack because I saw the movie last night, and I loved the crap out of it. »

First, a confession: I haven’t seen a single episode of Dexter since I reviewed Season 4 way back when this site used to have another name – and even before then I’d only seen the odd few episodes from earlier seasons – before I watched this one.
The good news? It’s a show that can be dipped in and out of more or less as long as you watch it a season at a time, thanks to the semi-procedural cop show structure (who doesn’t get sucked into gruesome murders?) and yearly antagonists that usually embody the particular themes a season is trying to explore. I really like the show, and its premise – it’s about a forensic analyst who moonlights as a serial-killing serial killer (the magnetic Michael C. Hall »

Wonderland Sound and Vision’s Jeff Grosvenor has joined Rashida Jones & Will McCormack‘s production company as Evp overseeing development. The hire stems from the two-year pod deal Parks and Recreation co-star Jones and her writing partner, fellow actor-writer McCormack, signed with Warner Bros. Television in January to develop, write and produce comedy and drama projects for broadcast and cable. “Jeff is the perfect fit for us,” McCormack said. “He has a sharp eye for story and development. We are ecstatic he has joined our team to help bring our voice to TV.” The new gig keeps Grosvenor in the Wbtv fold as McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision also was based there. Grosvenor joined the company in 2005. He was promoted to Manager of Television in 2007 and to VP Television in 2011. During his eight-year tenure at Wonderland, Grosvenor worked on such shows as Chuck, Human Target, Supernatural and Nikita. In addition to television, »

Who says there are no new Broadway shows in the summertime? Bucking that trend is the team behind the anticipated new musical First Date, which begins previews next month on Broadway and marks the long hoped-for Broadway debut of Zachary Levi (TV’s Chuck, the upcoming film Thor: The Dark World…oh, and this duet).
Also starring Krysta Rodriguez (late of The Addams Family and who recently finished a stint on Smash as the put-upon Hit List-er Ana), the tuner explores the shiver-inducing world of the blind date through song involving newbie Aaron (Levi) and serial-dater Casey (Rodriguez) which »

We all know, of course, what happened on April 15, 2013, in Boston, Massachusetts; as thousands of people ran a famous marathon through one of America's oldest and most historic cities, multiple explosions went off near the finish line. Many were killed or injured, and fundraisers have sprung up across the globe to help the community and the victims and their families. And one of the philanthropists lending a hand is one of horror's most beloved figures.
Adam Green, the director of Spiral and Frozen and the mastermind behind the popular slasher films in the Hatchet series, was born and raised in the Boston area in a small picturesque town called Holliston. Green, currently working on his own FearNet original sitcom, Holliston, and the upcoming Chris Columbus (of Goonies fame) film Killer Pizza, opted to plan a three-night fundraising extravaganza in his hometown area.
Green began posting details on his social media as details became available. »

I’m super-excited about this year’s Q-Fest….and I’m not even gay!
There are a pair of must-see gay-themed films making their St. Louis debuts; I Am Divine, a documentary about the late crossdresser and John Waters frequent star, and James Franco’s Interior Leather Bar, a high-concept recreation of scenes that were cut from William Friedkin’s notorious 1980 gay serial killer movie Cruising. Divine was one of the biggest, most outrageous, and proudly different gay cultural icons the world has known and the new documentary about the performer I Am Divine plays at Q-fest this Friday night at 7pm. A high (or low) point in Divine’s career was John Waters 1972’s masterpiece Pink Flamingos where he/she competes for the title of “filthiest person alive” by eating fresh dog poop. With antics like that, it’s no surprise that the emerging punk scene adopted his visage on t-shirts. »

10: Gentleman’s Agreement
Perhaps a bit tame by today’s standards, but Kazan’s message drama was an extremely important film in 1947, marking one of the first times that the word Jew was explicity used in a Hollywood picture. Kazan was known throughout his career as a champion of social causes, and Gentleman’s Agreement earned him the first of two Best Director wins (out of five such nominations). Agreement follows a respected gentile journalist (Gregory Peck) hired by a magazine publisher (Albert Dekker) to write a gutsy expose about anti-Semitism. In order to deliver a true, honest and powerful story, he decides to present himself as Jewish everywhere he goes. Gregory Peck gives unquestionably the second best performance of his career. His strong, steady portrayal earned him a Best Actor nomination (although not a win).

After getting Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe off to a fine start with the blockbuster sequel Iron Man 3, this week has brought rumours that all may not be well behind-the-scenes on Marvel Studios' next offering Thor: The Dark World.
According to a report on Film Score Monthly, composer Carter Burwell (True Grit) has left the sequel, while the Marvel is also said to be unhappy with director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), who has allegedly been asked "to take a long vacation After the film opens." While we're yet to hear anything official about Taylor's status on Thor: The Dark World, Deadline has now "exclusively" revealed that Burwell is indeed off the sequel in what is being described as "a creative split". As yet, there's no word on a new composer, although Marvel is said to be close to announcing a replacement.
