The Showtime series Dexter was always a difficult show to do interviews for because secrecy was key and the cast and creative team did their best to keep things under wraps. Now that the series is done, The Complete Series Collection is available in an ultra cool Blu-ray set that includes all eight seasons, an exclusive art book and a bonus disc with three hours of special features (made up of behind-the-scenes cast interviews, featurettes and promos, the all-new The Evolution of Dexter Morgan documentary and the all-new The Code documentary), in a collectible slide box inspired by the one Dexter himself uses on the show to catalog his kills. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Yvonne Strahovski opened up about her time on the show and what it was like to play Hannah McKay on the final two seasons. She talked about how much she was »

Monday’s theatrical screenings of Doctor Who‘s “Day of the Doctor” special was the number two movie for the day, ranking only behind The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. In my home town, screenings were fairly limited — you couldn’t catch a matinee — which makes it an even stronger performer.

Exclusive: Legendary Television has sold its second major broadcast project, this time on the comedy side.

Good news for those of us who just can't seem to cram enough terror into our eyes and brains: Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak has sold The Woods to Syfy. Written by 90210 writer Liz Phang, The Woods follows a woman who “returns to the mysterious wooded mansion her sister disappeared from when they were girls, only to learn that the sinister beings that took her sister are still there.” So can Syfy do ghost-infested murder house better than FX? Consider that blood-soaked gauntlet thrown! »

Phang wrote “Woods” as a spec script and brought it to Amblin TV, which is exec producing with Universal Cable Prods. Amblin then recruited Fedak to help Phang shape the concept.
Story revolves around a woman who returns to the mysterious mansion and discovers that the sinister beings behind her sister’s disappearance years ago are still there.
Phang spent two seasons on CW’s “90210″ and also logged a stint on HBO’s “Hung.”
Fedak, who became an in-demand showrunner following his five-season run at the helm of NBC’s “Chuck,” is having a busy selling season with drama projects percolating at NBC and TNT, among other prospects.
Phang and Fedak are repped by Wme.

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Hulk’s Favorite Movies: Speed Racer” — Film Crit Hulk is to be commended for defending the bizarrely disliked candy-colored gem from The Wachowskis. An excellent piece. You might need this. “Read an exclusive excerpt from ‘Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece” — Jules undergoes a spiritual change in this chapter from Jason Bailey’s new book. “Why TV Hasn’t Killed Movies, With Alfonso Cuaron” — I can’t wait for Esquire’s “Why Sculpture Hasn’t Killed Painting,” but joke’s aside, this is a keen conversation with the Gravity director. “Grace-Infused: Notes on Director Wes Anderson’s Working Relationship With Actor Jason Schwartzman” — Chuck Bowen at Roger Ebert pings off a moment in the pair’s new short film to encapsulate a long-standing collaboration. “How Friends Decided to Pair Off Monica and Chandler” — Josef »

We know that "The Daughter Of Ra's Al Ghul" is on her way to Starling City to bring Black Canary back to The League of Assassins, but it has now been revealed by TV Guide that it won't be Talia! Instead, Spartacus and Chuck actress Katrina Law has been cast in the role of Ra's' other daughter; Nyssa al Ghul. While she hasn't been seen in the pages of the comic books for a while, the character played a similar role to Talia - who was recently portrayed by Marion Cotillard in The Dark Knight Rises - alongside her father in the League of Assassins. What this decision leads us to wonder is whether this is a sign that all major Batman characters are still off limits to the producers of Arrow. On the other hand, they could just be using Nyssa to differentiate this take on the League from »
Nothing is certain but death, taxes, and sequels. That's how the phrase goes, and we won't let anyone tell us otherwise. It should be no surprise to anyone who vaguely follows Hollywood news that nothing is sacred, but even so, there's something especially galling about the prospect of a sequel to It's a Wonderful Life.
We should all bear in mind that, much like the Casablanca sequel that was rumoured last year, this may well never amount to anything. But forewarned is forearmed, and so we've put our Worst Case Scenario hat on to dream up some equally horrifying possibilities.
Here are seven of Digital Spy's very best worst pitches for movie sequels.
Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid... including the ending of Gravity. You have been warned!
But wait, we hear you cry. What's the eighth deadly sin? That's exactly the »
We first reported on this project back in June 2010, when Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar signed on to write the screenplay, although they are no longer involved. No plot details were released, but the story will be based on Mattel's toy line of the same name, which features the teenage children of iconic monsters. The toys are popular with tween and teen girls.
The writers are producing under their Fake Empire production company, alongside Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and Mattel's newly-formed Playground Productions, which was launched last month and is also overseeing Legendary's Hot Wheels and Dolphin Entertainment's Max Steel. The company also has Masters of the Universe in the works, although they are searching for a new director after Jon M. Chu left the project last month. »
Ryan Ferguson was released from prison on Nov. 12, after spending 10 years behind bars for murder. His charges have been overturned.
Ryan Ferguson, 29, is “ready for anything” now, after spending ten years in prison for the murder of Kent Heitholt, a Columbia Daily Tribune sports editor — a crime he never committed.
Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster announced on Nov. 12 that Ryan would not be retried, and was free. He was released around 6 p.m.
In 2004, Ryan was convicted and sentenced to 40 years in prison, after being charged with the murder of his fellow student. During the original trial, Chuck Erickson, one of Ryan’s classmates, told the jury that together, they did murder Kent in the parking lot of the newspaper on Halloween night in 2001.
Jerry Trump, a janitor at the Tribune added that he had seen Ryan and Chuck in the parking lot that night. While none »

When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. made its highly-anticipated debut, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were more than a bit surprised by the over-the-top, cookie cutter series that stood before them. Now 7 episodes in – and on a bit of an upswing – Agent Coulson and his elite S.H.I.E.L.D. team finally receive the pilot that they, as well as all the fans, deserve. But don’t call it a comeback – not just yet, at least!
In this week’s episode, “The Hub”, Chuck writing duo Rafe Judkins and Lauren LeFrance makes use of all the good will that Day Break creator Paul Zbyszewski instilled with last week’s episode, tapping into their previous spy/comedy ...

Marvel’s version of the God of Thunder is back in theaters. “Thor: The Dark World” picks up shortly after the events of 2012′s blockbuster, “The Avengers,” which ended with the hammer-wielding hero bringing his devious brother, Loki, to the Asgardian authorities for his crimes committed against earth. The opening segments of the film move quite briskly to establish several things- With Odin explaining, via narration, the history of the film’s antagonist, seeing Loki get incarcerated after confronting his adoptive parents, showing that Thor has grown into his role as the responsible future king of Asgard, and establishing a dynamic where the story zips back-and-forth between mystical realms and earth. It becomes quite clear early on that, more so than any of the other standalone Marvel films, this one will be more of an ensemble piece. Thor’s supporting cast is rather enormous at this point, with bits of »
