We’ve already sat through the premieres of Gotham and The Flash, and new seasons of Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and we’ve still got the premiere of iZombie and Netflix’s Daredevil to get through before the TV year is over. But now, it’s time for Constantine, NBC’s highly anticipated series which debuted tonight.
Based on the long-running DC Comics/Vertigo book Hellblazer, and the subject of a somewhat successful yet critically derided Keanu Reeves movie, NBC is hoping that this paranormal detective/master of the dark arts will make a fine Friday night companion for their established hit Grimm. In Constantine‘s favor is that it ably sets up an easy-to-replicate procedural-style format. The pilot is efficiently creepy, and star Matt Ryan seems at least engaging in the title role. But will Constantine prove as engaging as some of its fellow comic book series? That remains to be seen. »

Forget the political warfare of the Seven Kingdoms: “Game of Thrones” actor Charles Dance will soon be staging an alien invasion, as Variety has confirmed he will be one of the leads in Syfy’s “Childhood’s End.”
The six-hour miniseries, which is an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s classic novel “Childhood’s End,” focuses on what happens after the alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords. While their arrival is seen as a peaceful one, it also begins decades of an apparent utopia under indirect alien rule — at the cost of human identity and culture. As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dance will play Karellen, the Overlords’ ambassador.
The project, which is being adapted by Matthew Graham (BBC’s “Life on Mars”) and directed by Nick Hurran (“Sherlock: His Last Vow”), will begin filming next month in Australia and will premiere on Syfy next year. It »

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Bats 1,000
By Alex Simon
A veteran actor with more than forty film and TV roles to his credit, Denmark native Nikolaj Coster-Waldau finally hit paydirt as the nefarious, yet complicated, Jamie Lannister on HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. However, far from resting the laurels of his hard-earned fame, Coster-Waldau has kept busy before the cameras. His latest effort, 1,000 Times Goodnight, stars Juliette Binoche as Rebecca, one of the world’s top war photojournalists, but she’s also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there when she returns from each assignment. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, »

Has Vin Diesel ever done a historical fantasy before? I don’t know: I just cannot think of the guy as that kind of action hero. But the premise of The Last Witch Hunter is based in the idea that we can accept him as a man out of time. Diesel will be an immortal hunter of witches, tasked with stopping the covens of New York City from unleashing a deadly plague on humanity. He will be helped in his endeavors by a sexy witch (Rose Leslie), evoking the age-old question: who hunts the witch hunter? The release date that Lionsgate has given the film is October 23, 2015 – so the covens will come alive just in time for Halloween next year.

Warner Bros. is looking for a real-life superheroine to bring "Wonder Woman" to the bigscreen. The studio is reportedly searching for a female director to helm the iconic DC Comics character's first solo film in 2017, after Gal Gadot first appears as the Amazonian warrior in 2016's "Batman V Superman." In a rundown of the upcoming deluge of superhero films from both Marvel and DC (nearly thirty over the next 6 years), The Hollywood Reporter noted that "Warners... is opting for strong directors, tapping David Ayer ('Fury') for 'Suicide Squad' and seeking a female helmer for Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman.'" Although there have been no official news reports, numerous rumors floating around the Internet point to the possibility of Kathryn Bigelow ("Hurt Locker"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilght"), and Michelle MacLaren ("Breaking Bad"), among other notable names. Whoever is chosen, it will mark the first time that »

Jim Parsons is breathing new life into a (relatively young) holiday classic: The Big Bang Theory star will voice Buddy the Elf — yes, Will Ferrell’s character from 2003’s Elf — in a new holiday special for NBC.

Premiering Dec. 16 at 8/7c, Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas retells the story of Buddy’s journey to New York City, combining aspects of both the original film and the Broadway stage production.
Yesterday it was reported that Warner Bros. is looking for a female director to helm its upcoming Wonder Woman movie, and so naturally it hasn’t taken long for the rumour mill to kick into gear, with Forbes posting a rumoured shortlist of candidates for the director’s chair on what will be the Amazon Princess’ solo debut on the big screen.
According to the site, the studio is considering Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Mimi Leder (Deep Impact), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), Julie Taymor (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones) and Tricia Brook (The Walking Dead).
Given the timing of this report, and past form from Forbes, I’m personally chalking this one down to pure speculation, but of course if Warner Bros. is looking for a female director for Wonder Woman, then you’d have to imagine most of those names would »

John Wick, 2014.
An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.
If there is one thing that John Wick proves, it’s that no matter how stupid a story sounds on paper, with proper execution anything can be entertaining. Seriously, a movie where Keanu Reeves plays an ex-gangster known as The Boogeyman who gets back into the game because mobsters murder his dog – the very last thing reminding him of his deceased wife – sounds like it was spat out by a random movie plot generator website. It is completely absurd but fortunately never once takes itself seriously after the narrative sets up the non-stop action.
Furthermore, the action of the film is unexpectedly quite good. »

Charles Dance is going from fantasy to sci-fi. The Game of Thrones actor has landed one of the starring roles in Syfy’s ambitious miniseries adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s sci-fi classic Childhood’s End, EW has exclusively learned. The six-hour miniseries follows a breed of aliens called the “Overlords,” who manage to peacefully invade and rule Earth, and create a pseudo-utopia that comes at the price of human identity and culture. Dance plays Karellen, the ambassador for the Overlords who makes first contact with Earthling Ricky Stormgren (not yet cast). We're told that "Karellen’s comforting words and »

Words and Pictures: Binoche Dominates Poppe’s Familial Drama
Norwegian director Erik Poppe makes his English language directorial debut with 1,000 Times Goodnight, featuring an internationally renowned cast that’s headlined by a masterful performance from Juliette Binoche. Basically a family melodrama hedged by topical issues, Poppe’s own experiences as a war photographer serve as the semi-autobiographical impetus for the film, which is perhaps why it’s presented with such nuance. Bolstering the importance of such a hazardous occupation, the film’s tense juxtaposition lies in how one reconciles working in such dangerous conditions while trying to raise a family. Obviously changing his own perspective to that of a mother ups the dramatic potential, and is met with a terrifically inspired performance from Binoche.
A photojournalist that specializes in conflict zones, Rebecca (Binoche) has been following a group of female militants in Kabul. We watch her take photos as »

Violence dominates director Neil Marshall's work, from his 2002 werewolf action film Dog Soldiers to his battle-centric Game of Thrones episode "Watchers on the Wall" from earlier this year, the latter of which earned Marshall an Emmy nomination. Marshall grew up in Northern England, reveling in hyperviolent horror films that were banned during the U.K.'s Video Nasties scare of the mid-1980s. Now 44, he's gone on to helm The Descent, one of the most viscerally disturbing horror films of recent memory, and the pilot episode of Constantine, a dark, supernatural drama based on DC Comics' Hellblazer series. Vulture talked to Marshall about decapitations, ex–Sex Pistol John Lydon, and taboo VHS tapes.Watching the Constantine pilot, I couldn't help but wonder if there was a conscious effort to distinguish the show's style from the look of the  Frances Lawrence/Keanu Reeves film ...We tried to make the »

"Hey! If we're going to have a female superhero movie it should be directed by a female!" Hilarious. And I'm not saying that because I don't think a female should be hired to direct Warner Bros. and DC Comics' planned Wonder Woman movie, but because it's not as if they are breaking any gender lines in doing so. Why isn't a female director also being sought to direct The Flash, Aquaman or Shazamc Oh... I see... Either way, it is what it is and I guess women will just have to be satisfied for the bone they're thrown for the time being as The Hollywood Reporter brings word WB is searching for a female director to direct the Gal Gadot-led Wonder Woman feature targeting a June 23, 2017 release following Gadot's appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.

CD Projekt Red unveiled the intro cinematic for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt — the third and final chapter in the studio’s genre-defining RPG series — during today’s 32nd Annual Golden Joystick Awards. (Incidentally, the threequel also picked up the Most Wanted gong during the ceremony.)

Along with a lack of female superheroes on the big screen, there's also been an obvious lack of female filmmakers tackling the genre. Lexi Alexander was an exception, helming the quickly forgotten "Punisher: War Zone," whilst Patty Jenkins came very close to directing "Thor: The Dark World" before Alan Taylor ultimately took the gig.
Now though, with the announcement of a "Wonder Woman" movie, it looks like Warners is using the opportunity to also push for more diversity behind the camera and is currently considering a shortlist of female helmers for the gig.
Forbes reports the studio has already drawn up a list of possible directors including established filmmakers like Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight"), Mimi Leder ("Deep Impact"), Karyn Kusama ("Aeon Flux") and Julie Taymor ("Across the Universe") along with some TV directors such as Michelle MacLaren ("Game of Thrones") and Tricia Brook ("The Walking Dead").
