‘Westworld’ Review: HBO’s Violent Epic More ‘Grand Theft Auto’ Than ‘Game Of Thrones’

7 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

With Game of Thrones set to end after its eighth season in 2018 and Vinyl flaming out quicker than a one-hit wonder, HBO really needs an epic on its slate. After much revamping and reshooting plus full-tilt promotion, the premium cabler just might have found its future in Westworld. But, as a say in my video review above, this series drenched in blood, sex and violence is more Grand Theft Auto than the Emmy-winning GoT. Developed by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy and based… »

Samuel L. Jackson Reveals the Similarities Between Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton’s Directing Styles

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Samuel L. Jackson has worked with almost everyone at this point in his career. He most recently added Tim Burton to that list with “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” an adaptation of the young-adult novel by Ransom Riggs. The actor’s unexpected takeaway from the experience is that the “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Ed Wood” director is “very Quentin [Tarantino]-like” in his approach to filmmaking.

“It’s incumbent on you to come in there as precise and as sure as you want to do as [he is],” Jackson eleborated during the “Miss Peregrine” premiere on Monday night. “But still he expects you to come and create something that’s as unique and visual as what he’s doing.” The actor has worked with Tarantino a number of times, »

‘Westworld’: The Women Fight Back in New HBO Trailer — Watch

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even before the series premiere of “Westworld,” the issue of how to depict violence toward women has been discussed by the show’s creators and critics. In a new promo for the series, strong female leads, Maeve (Thandie Newton) and Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) show signs of self-awareness, defiance and movement beyond the boundaries of humanoid intelligence.

At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, co-creator and executive producer Lisa Joy addressed the serious nature of these issues and explained the importance of their inclusion in the show.

“[‘Westworld’] is about the best parts of human nature, but also the basest parts of human nature and that includes violence and sexual violence,” she said. “[Rape] has been a part of our nature since the beginning.”

Emily S. Whitten: Fan2Sea –The Comic-Con on a Cruise Ship

11 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise. I love being out on the water, and have even joked that I’d live in a tiny house surrounded by water if I could. So it’s kind of silly that I’ve never been on a cruise, isn’t it? And I love comic-cons, as anyone who’s ever read my column will know. So when I first saw that someone was organizing Fan2Sea, a comic-con on a cruise ship (and one with an adorably punny name, at that!), I thought, “What? I have to go! Also, this absolutely sounds too good to be true! Because it’s a comic-con. On a cruise ship. How can this be?!?”

And then I saw the line-up, and my mind boggled even more. Because after a million and three recommendations from literally everyone I know, I’m in the midst of watching the Netflix original, »

Review: HBO's 'Westworld' a technical marvel but a narrative muddle

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Late in the second episode of HBO's Westworld, set in a theme park where visitors act out Wild West fantasies with the help of lifelike robots, the park's visionary co-founder Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) dresses down Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman), a screenwriter who has planned a new storyline for the guests that leans heavily on blood and guts to dazzle them. The guests, an irritated Ford explains, don't return for the graphic violence, or any of the other obvious things the park's creative team shows them. Instead, he insists, "They come back because of the subtleties, the details. They come back because they discover something they imagine no one had ever noticed before — something they've fallen in love with. They're not looking for a story that tells them who they are. They already know who they are. They're here because they want a glimpse of who they could be. »

Let's all double-dare Stephen Amell to go to Starbucks in his 'Arrow' costume!

11 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Being an actor is a weird job. They’re literally getting paid to play dress-up. Being an actor in a superhero or sci-fi/fantasy job is even weirder as they are professionally cosplaying for our enjoyment. When the cast of Game of Thrones or Arrow are ready for the director to yell ‘Action!’ they’re still just regular folks who are wondering when lunch is. Or if they remembered to start the washer before they left the house. Or, in the case of Stephen Amell, if they could get away with a Starbucks run. You know what? He should totally do this. For posterity. And film it. For posterity.   A video posted by Stephen Amell (@stephenamell) on Sep 26, 2016 at 7:26pm Pdt »

The Weird Science of Marketing HBO’s ‘Westworld’

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

With “Game of Thrones,” HBO wove dragons, swordfights, and blood magic into a demographic-crossing television hit. Now it hopes to do the same with robot cowboys and mad scientists.

Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film about a theme park filled with thinking, human-like machines gone haywire, “Westworld” premieres Oct. 2 on the premium cabler. Humongous in scope, the show is an ambitious gambit at a critical time for HBO, which could use a big drama to carry its flag past the looming end of “Game of Thrones.” To give “Westworld” a chance at becoming that show, HBO’s marketing team is using technology that mirrors the world of the series to rally hardcore fans.

“We knew that there would be two distinct strategies,” says Sabrina Caluori, senior vice president of digital media and marketing for HBO. The first of those is the theatrical-style campaign of on-air, online, and outdoor advertising that is a must for a big-series launch »

Hollywood's 25 Most Powerful Authors 2016

17 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hollywood is rife with jokes about writers — and the punchline of all of them is how powerless they are. But as this list of the 25 most influential authors in entertainment proves, no one in the industry is laughing anymore. “The demand for creators and underlying material has never been stronger,” says Howie Sanders, UTA partner and co-head of the book department, of the race to acquire the rights to books and magazine articles for film and TV. The success of Game of Thrones (penned by No. 4, George R.R. Martin), FX’s The People v. O.J.

Younger: Sutton Foster and Nico Tortorella on Liza's Relationships and Complicated Life

17 hours ago | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It's complicated.

That's the biggest takeaway after the chat I had with Sutton Foster and Nico Tortorella at the Atx Festival this summer. Nothing about Liza's life is easy, whether with her friendships or her love live, let alone a simple day at the office.

Find out what they had to offer by way of insight into Sutton's character and what to expect when it comes to revealing Liza's secret.

Liza has her best friend and a really great guy who discovered her secret and supported her entirely. Why doesn't that support help her lean more towards telling the truth?

Nico: She's in a dangerous position.

Sutton: I think she is in a dangerous position. We saw elements in Season 2 where she was willing to lay everything out on the table for her friends, like when Thad threatened to reveal her secret, she was like, I don't care. Go for it. »

Lena Headey says she won't be returning her son to L.A. anytime soon -- father's wishes be damned -- because the American education system sucks. Headey's ex-husband, Peter Loughran, claims in new legal docs Lena agreed to return their 6-year-old son from the U.K. after she was done filming "Game of Thrones" ... but didn't. Headey supposedly emailed Peter saying she was enrolling their son in a Yorkshire school because the kid was being »

Kevin Feige Defends Marvel Studios' Use Of Doppelganger Villains

27 September 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There's no doubt that Marvel Studios has done a more-than-commendable job in establishing their cinematic universe. Back in 2008, the creation of a world that spans multiple franchises was, at the scope of these films, totally unprecedented. Would audiences be able to understand the cross-pollination between films? Would the films even be able to hold up over the course of several years? Could studios overcome the obstacle of stuffing their films with too many characters?

These were all very real questions, and while the result has been groundbreaking, it hasn't been perfect. One big and pervasive criticism are the villains. Marvel runs a very hero-centric cinematic universe, and if you have a world where the heroes are the highlight, it comes at an expense -- the villains. Oftentimes, their motivations are boring, and the schemes unbelievable, and more often than not, their abilities mirror that of the hero's making for relatively uninspired climaxes. »

Naegle will serve as president of the division, which marks the continued expansion of Annapurna’s operations. The company recently formed a unit to produce Vr programming.

'Game of Thrones' confirms Jon Snow theory thru byzantine infographic - She Said/She Said

27 September 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

She Said/She Said is a (sporadically) daily video featuring HitFix Harpy Donna Dickens and HitFix Weekend Editor Jill Pantozzi discussing current events in geek news. ******************* Warning: Kind Of Spoilers For ‘Game Of Thrones’ Inside. Why ‘kind of’ spoilers? Because some folks don’t like to know anything unless it comes directly from the source material, be it the show or the novels. And while the following information about Jon Snow originates from an official HBO source, it’s their website and thus kind of a gray area because this is the world we live in. Last season on Game of Thrones, audiences finally got to see inside the Tower of Joy after an unbearably long tease. There young Ned Stark (Robert Aramayo) and Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) found Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi) dying in a bed of childbirth blood.  The infant boy in her arms that she passed to her brother? »

Westworld: A Treasure Trove Of New Stuff From HBO's Anticipated New Series

27 September 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Lately I've been hearing murmurs about Westworld. People are saying the new series will be HBO's "next Game Of Thrones." In short, people are getting very hyped about this show and the way it seems to blend genres while being made with the finest quality ingredients. Similar to Game Of Thrones which is equal parts political period drama and sweeping fantastical adventure saga, Westworld is going to combine science fiction and western motifs. 

When you look at the team of people attached to Westworld, it's easy to see why HBO may have another massive hit on its hands. From stars like Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, and Jeffrey Wright, to a production team that includes Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight, Interstellar) and J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) the talent involved with the production is truly staggering.

HBO knows there's a large »
