Aaron Ashmore (Warehouse 13), Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters) and British actress Hannah John-Kamen (The Hour) have landed key roles in Killjoys, an original space adventure drama being produced for Syfy and Space.
Video Syfy’s 12 Monkeys Trailer
From the producers of Orphan Black and penned by Lost Girl creator Michelle Lovretta, Killjoys follows a fun-loving, hard-living trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war.
Ashmore plays John Jaqobis, a cheerful peacemaker who prefers not to fight, though his sarcastic »
Billed as a complete reimagining, SyFy's serial take on Terry Gilliam's post-apocalyptic "12 Monkeys" retains it's dark imagery, but will Gilliam's frenetic underlying messages ultimately be lost in the mix?
The fictional worlds of director Terry Gilliam (The Fisher King, Brazil, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) are beautifuilly profound and gorgeously bizarre to say the least, always combining the harsh grit of reality with the sublime wonders of the imagination. The famed director's 1995-outing 12 Monkeys was no exception.
Set in a distant future, 12 Monkeys saw Bruce Willis in the role of convict protagonist Cole, who is (messily) sent into the past by a shady government group with the task of seeking out and stopping the cause of mankind's current dilemna: a life underground in the dark to escape a worldwide pandemic that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction.
With his unique directorial style, Gilliam brought forth a haunting »

The Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) should have quit while he was ahead in the opening scene from Warner Bros.' Batman: Assault on Arkham, debuting on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD August 12. This clip features Edward Nygma trying to stump Amanda Waller (Cch Pounder) with a series of riddles, but the tables are quickly turned on him when he realizes it was all a setup.
For those who are making the journey to San Diego for this year's Comic-Con, we reported last week that Batman: Assault on Arkham will have its world premiere screening on Friday, July 25. In the meantime, take a look at how this animated adventure begins.
Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains - code named the Suicide Squad - and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler. Things take a turn »
The one-hour drama follows 20-somethings who, while studying magic in New York, discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as children is all too real and poses a grave danger to humanity.
Syfy president Dave Howe said, “Lev Grossman’s dazzling blend of magic and realism will capture the imagination of a new generation of viewers and further strengthen Syfy’s ownership of premium quality sci-fi fantasy drama.”

The universal theme of personal principle vs. human necessity gets a workout in languid but inexorably powerful morality play, “Runoff.” Set against the backdrop of an economically challenged rural America, and driven by a riveting performance from Joanne Kelly (TV series “Warehouse 13,” “Hostages”) as a woman who discovers how far she’s willing to go to save the family farm, the film is an impressive calling card for first-time writer-director Kimberly Levin, and could sustain an arthouse run for a savvy distributor with a nationwide strategy. After the movie’s debut in competition at the Los Angeles Film Festival, the bees in the field won’t be the only things buzzing.
A slow montage accompanied by an appropriately foreboding dirge of drum and strings shows us elements of the food chain — establishing the thing most at risk in the film — before the camera settles in on Betty Freeman (Kelly »

Open to a sunny close-up of a field in rural Kentucky as a plane descends -- and from there, let chaos ensue. So kicks off the trailer for Runoff, debuting exclusively here at The Hollywood Reporter. The movie -- directed by Kimberly Levin, produced by Kurt Pitzer and starring Joanne Kelly (Warehouse 13) -- centers on Betty Freeman (Kelly), who must take desperate measures to save her family as her husband falls ill and the government threatens to foreclose her property.

A weekly television series following the exploits of Jason Voorhees – how the hell is that supposed to work? The producers appear to have an idea for how to adapt Friday the 13th into a TV show, but I think I might have a few better ideas for how to transform Jason from horror icon to TV star.
The remakes, reboots, reimaginings, sequels, prequels, premakes, adaptations, and spin-offs that rule the big screen are taking over the airwaves like never before.
For horror fans alone "Bates Motel", "Hannibal", "From Dusk Till Dawn", and "Teen Wolf" have been turned into weekly TV shows, and soon "Scream", "Constantine", "12 Monkeys", a series based on the box office stinker Legion, and, yes, "Friday the 13th" will add to the fray.
As was announced recently, a new attempt at transforming Friday the 13th into a weekly hour-long series is in the works. Unlike the name-only late 80s series, »
Eddie McClintock had been working steadily in Hollywood for over a decade when he landed his biggest role, which would endear him to sci-fi fans around the world.
Pete Lattimer, senior agent at Warehouse 13, was juvenile, boobs-obsessed, and as beautifully played by Eddie, completely lovable.
Our interview with Eddie two years ago remains one of our favorites, as he discussed playing gay on Felicity, saving the world every week, and ripping his shirt off for Steve Jinks.
Today is Eddie’s 47th birthday, and while Warehouse 13 has ended its run (much too soon), we can’t wait to see what Eddie does next.
Happy Birthday, Eddie!

The Warehouse has survived countless takeover attempts, attempts to destroy it, and Pete‘s clumsy ass, but can it survive after the network ax? Let’s find out!
We start off with a nifty opening sequence involving Helena capturing Jack The Ripper back in old timey London. Unfortunately, Caturanga has to go foreshadow what’s going to happen 150 years in the future by telling her that Warehouse 12 may be settled in England, but the next Warehouse will be somewhere else in the world.
We cut to our group sitting together, as Pete wonders why they’re watching highlight reels of Hg Wells, especially since she’s now “living happily-ever-after with whatsisname in Wisconsin.” Myka has news …
Mrs. Fredric explains that what they saw was not a highlight reel. “This artifact is the round table that inspired the legend of King Arthur’s Court, and now it »
Showtime‘s period drama continues to add to its sophomore-season cast. Courtney B. Vance and Rene Auberjonois have joined Masters Of Sex in guest roles. Vance (FlashForward, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) will recur as Dr. Hendricks, head of an African-American hospital in St. Louis whose goal is to racially integrate his hospital, and Auberjonois (Warehouse 13, Boston Legal) will play Dr. Papanikolaou, inventor of the Pap smear. Season 2 of the series starring Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan premieres July 13 after the season premiere of Ray Donovan. Related: Sarah Silverman Joins Showtime’s ‘Masters Of Sex’ »

AMC has ordered three reality series including All-Star Celebrity Bowling, which sounds ridiculous but could be a lot of fun with the right guests (the pilot features Jon Hamm and the cast of Mad Men playing against Chris Hardwick‘s Nerdist pals).
EW reports that Michael Malarkey will be a series regular on The Vampire Diaries next season. I’d be happier if Malakey weren’t so infuriatingly good at being such a hate-inspiring character, but he’s a great addition to the cast.
Oh, Enzo, why can’t you be pretty and bearable? You too, Damon.
Vulture argues that Grey’s Anatomy failed Cristina Yang. Her exit lacked the grandiose symbolism and narrative impact that Grey’s does well. As emotional as Cristina’s exit may have been, it failed to live up to the drama’s standards. What did you think, Grey’s watchers?

Castle comes close to delivering one of the series' best episodes, then falls at the final hurdle. Here's Laura's review...
This review contains spoilers.
6.23 For Better Or Worse
Okay, I take it back. In last week’s review of Veritas, I praised the conclusion of the Joanna Beckett storyline, saying that now that that’s resolved, “Series seven will be a whole new ballgame.” This week’s episode not only put the kibosh on that but was more than a bit of a “get bent” to its audience. Which is particularly annoying given how well the episode was doing until the last few moments.
One of the ongoing problems on Castle is that the basic writing tends toward the cliché or formulaic. Something being cliché or formulaic doesn’t necessarily make it bad. It is entirely possible to use a cliché in a way that is entirely entertaining, and when Castle is good, »
Coming hot on the heels of last weeks episode which wrapped up the main storyline post the season 4 cliffhanger and it’s fall out (the alternate timeline, Claudia’s sister etc.), this series finale had plenty of breathing room to give the series the send-off it truly deserved, a send-off which will both please and frustrate long-standing fans. Yes, we get the character resolution that often is missing from cancelled TV shows, but the episode also serves to remind the audience what we will be missing now the series has ended!
Given that the team behind the show knew the »

Arrow‘s second season came to a close last night with an explosive finale that tied up enough loose ends for a satisfying conclusion, but left the characters in interesting places for season 3. It may be a while before we know any concrete details about what the showrunners have planned for the emerald archer next season, but a few pieces of information have come trickling in today.
The first piece of info comes from the Arrow himself, actor Stephen Amell. He took to Twitter to announce that John Barrowman, who plays Malcom Merlyn, has been bumped up as a series regular for the upcoming season.
#Arrow has a new series regular. @Team_Barrowman — What could go wrong?!?! pic.twitter.com/VgFQdQhKNq

Fans should definitely be pleased to hear this, as Barrowman was one of the best parts of the first season. His presence was surely missed this year, »

Should an early cancellation put you off watching a TV show in the first place?
Floating in on the yearly tide of TV renewals is the yearly disappointment of cancellation. However many fingers are crossed or hashtagged prayers are sent, network television’s quest to conquer ever more viewers and awards inevitably has its casualties. Too expensive to make? Not enough viewers? Lukewarm reception from critics? Then sayonara, promising new sci-fi. We hardly knew you.
Almost Human is one such show. A future-set sci-fi take on the buddy cop genre, it received a thirteen-episode season one order from Fox in 2013 and a shed load of pricy promotion for its November the 4th premiere. And then? At the eleventh hour, the premiere was pushed back a fortnight, co-showrunner Naren Shankar left citing “creative differences”, and only four of its thirteen episodes were aired in the intended running order.
Despite some great world-building, »

It’s the penultimate episode. Can they wrap up some dangling threads?
Claire is gone! And so is the record player that was keeping her in a coma. But who could have the knowledge necessary to attempt such a brazen theft? Artie and Claudia use the Urine-Vision Spectral Artifact to learn the truth. It was … That Guy!
Yes, we’ve known for some time that Valda was going to make his move, and he does not disappoint. He has carted Claire away, and what’s worse, he’s outfitted her with one of those Borg implant thingies to control her telekinesis. Claudia and Artie start figuring out what his plan might be, while Myka asks Pete to help her search for clues in Valda’s vault room.
Pete balks at being close to Myka, remembering Kelly‘s words last week about being obviously in love with his partner. »
The TV network upfronts have begun and NBC has released its fall schedule. Katherine Heigl‘s political drama State of Affairs will get that powerful time slot after The Voice while The Biggest Loser bumps what has long been a home to comedy on Thursday nights.
NBC also ordered three new comedies including the gay parenting comedy One Big Happy, which stars Elisha Cuthbert as a lesbian who has a child with her best friend (Nick Zano) when he meets the woman of his dreams. It also ordered Mission Control where Krysten Ritter plays an engineer dealing with sexism in 1960s space race. Mission Control also reunites Jonathan Slavin with his Better Off Ted co-star Malcolm Barrett.
The network also put together a last-minute renewal for Parenthood (They first needed to convince the expensive cast to agree to appear in fewer episodes). Furthermore, NBC announced that this will be »
