Oscilloscope Laboratories has released the trailer for Jeff Preiss’ drama “Low Down,” which stars John Hawkes as legendary pianist Joe Albany and Elle Fanning as his daughter. “Low Down” premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Cinematography. While “Low Down” earned strong reviews at the festival, Preiss decided to tweak the film slightly, so it has been re-edited for theatrical release.

Though he was last seen suffering the most humiliating death in Game of Thrones history, Charles Dance hints that he might not be gone for good. While promoting Dracula Untold, Dance told MTV, "I'm not completely missing out on the next series. You haven't seen the last of Tywin Lannister." This is big news not just because it means we get more Charles Dance (every show needs more Charles Dance!), but also because it adds more weight to rumors that GoT is abandoning its no-flashbacks policy, which has frustrated fans hoping for more of that good fantasy lore. Or it could just be his corpse. But if we're getting flashbacks, could Sean Bean achieve his own dream of returning to the show?Also, if you're wondering what young Charles Dance might look like, here you go. »

Spoilers, necessarily, will be discussed below. You are warned. Might we see Charles Dance again on "Game of Thrones?" According to an interview he did with MTV UK for "Dracula Untold," the actor will certainly be back on the HBO show. Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister on the series, was asked, "Are you sad to be missing the next series of 'Game of Thrones.'" That is a pretty straightforward question considering what happened to him this past season. His answer though is less straightforward. "Well, I'm not completely missing out on the next series," Dance responded. He added, "More than that I'm not going to say," but then he did say more. Specifically, he said, "You haven't seen the last of Tywin Lannister, is all I'll say." What does that mean? Will it be a flashback? Is Tywin far less dead than we think he is? Will some sort »

Zach Braff plans to reunite with “Scrubs” creator for a new sitcom “I’ve been talking about a new idea with Bill Lawrence who created ‘Scrubs,’” Braff tells UK’s Independent. "I don’t know if it will be this year or next. I like the idea of cable because I don’t want to do 22 episodes, but I like the idea of this new wave that you can do 12 episodes or eight episodes maybe for cable or Netflix or wherever. There are so many more options now. It's an exciting time.” “Red Band Society” disappoints, “The Mysteries of Laura” gets a big “America’s Got Talent” boost The Fox teen hospital drama debuted to four million, while 10.4 million checked out Debra Messing in “Laura.” Laverne Cox to host and produce “The T Word” documentary for MTV The “Orange is the New Black” star will focus on seven transgender youths »

Three new pictures bow this weekend with Fox’s sci-fi action thriller The Maze Runner leading the way. It opens tonight at 10 Pm, having already made a strong bow overseas to heavily outpace Divergent and gross $8.5M so far. After this weekend’s bow in the states, the picture will likely have grossed its production budget back — said to be around $35M+ but they got a tax incentive from shooting in Louisiana which brought the net cost down. That’s not including marketing and distribution costs, but this should be yet another profitable film for Fox (which has been on a roll). CGI was also handled out of the U.S. (in Vancouver) through a company called Method. Here’s the thing, Divergent was heavily skewed female so the question is will the boys come out for Fox the same way girls (who tend to go to movies in packs) came out for March 2014 release? »

Pictures are really worth a thousand words. Movie fans received quite the surprise Wednesday when fansites captured Adam Driver filming scenes for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII film. But while reports first suggested the Girls actor would be playing a top secret villain, the new images may tell a completely different story. It appears Driver is wearing an orange Rebel flight suit symbolizing he's part of the good guys, aka the Rebel Alliance. Other photos also show Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie wearing another new Alliance costume. Whatever his role will be, Driver can count on the support of his Girls co-star Lena Dunham.

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise. As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol. These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida. She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office. Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 images. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, »

Guys were in control of the remote control during primetime last week, as five dude-driven offerings — four NFL games and the record-setting season premiere of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” — topped the demo rankings.
NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” which was once again the week’s top primetime show, joined the premiere of “Thursday Night Football” on CBS and NFL Network and the season-premiere doubleheader of Espn’s “Monday Night Football to win every half-hours on those nights. And college football (first on CBS and then ABC) ruled from start to finish on Saturday.
The week’s most impressive number, though, came from FX’s season premiere of “Sons of Anarchy,” which set series records in both adults 18-49 (3.2 rating/10 share) and total viewers (6.2 million) — especially impressive considering that its long 110-minute run time meant it didn’t end until 11:50 p.m.
“Sons” (pictured) was the No. 1 program on »

One of the rare films to play at both Sundance and the Toronto International Film Festival was writer-director Maya Forbes' Infinitely Polar Bear. Based on her own childhood experiences, the film takes place in 1978 Boston and stars Mark Ruffalo as a manic-depressive father struggling to raise his young daughters while also trying to win back his wife (Zoe Saldana). Loaded with fantastic performances and a great script that's able to keep Ruffalo sympathetic even when he's causing serious problems, Forbes' debut feature really impressed me and you should look forward to seeing it for yourself next year in theaters. Shortly after the Tiff premiere I landed an exclusive interview with Mark Ruffalo. During our wide-ranging conversation, he talked about how he still gets nervous taking on roles, how he's started pulling from dreams when putting together his characters, his preparation process for each part, how the project changed along the way, »

With Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch reportedly set for three of the leading roles in season two of HBO’s True Detective, the hunt for the show’s female leads continues. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams were recently named as favourites, but a new report lists Seven actresses in contention.
While they could still be in the running, it seems as if creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is casting a wide net to find the right person for the still pretty mysterious role. Here’s the full list of True Detective candidates:
Brit Marling (Another Earth), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Kelly Reilly (Flight), Jessica Biel (The A-Team), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Jamie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) and Rosario Dawson (Sin City).

The Wrap has word of seven actresses who are trying out for a major role on True Detective this week. According to an exclusive report from writer Jeff Sneider, those auditioning for the HBO drama include: Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel, Brit Marling and Malin Akerman. Rounding out this list of potential tryouts include the lesser-known Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones) and Kelly Reilly (Flight).
According to Sneider, these actors will be reading for Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and screenwriter of True Detective. Sneider says that Dawson is a favourite, aided by a stellar recent track record working on Danny Boyle’s Trance, Chris Rock’s Tiff favorite Top Five and Netflix’s Daredevil series. Meanwhile, being a Puerto Rican actor in a show that takes place in California (and where all of the other rumored stars are white) could be an advantage over the other choices, »

★★★☆☆The pride of the Roman Empire is brought to its knees by director Paul W.S. Anderson and a small army of screenwriters in silly disaster flick Pompeii (2014). Kit Harington, of Game of Thrones fame, stars as Milo, the last survivor of a tribe of Celts. As a child, Milo saw his family slaughtered by Roman forces led by Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland, chewing the Italian scenery for all his worth) and his lackey Proculus (Sasha Roiz); Milo now finds himself in Pompeii as a gladiator-slave, where Corvus is negotiating a trade agreement with the city's patrician, Severus (Mad Men's Jared Harris). Corvus is also pursuing Severus' daughter, Cassia (Emily Browning), who is enamoured with Milo after a chance meeting on the road.

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.

Last update: Most recent ratings for Boardwalk Empire added.

The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current primetime scripted shows. »
The Wrap reports that Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman ("Watchmen"), and Jamie Alexander ("Thor") have also emerged as strong contenders for the part. Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams, who were previously rumored, are still said to be in the running.

This is a fantastic trailer for a jaw-droppingly amazing looking animated film called Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart. I don't know how I had never heard of this before, but wow! The movie seems to have kind of a Tim Burton vibe to it with its circus-like atmosphere, beautiful animation, and music.
The story revolves around Jack "whose heart was frozen on the day of his birth and replaced with a cuckoo-clock. Because of the delicate apparatus keeping him going, he lives by only three rules: never touch the hands of the clock; control his temper at all times; and most heartbreakingly, never fall in love. Any massive emotion could stop his clock and thus end his life. »
