Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months . December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters. And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you. Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

Bloodline's pilot left us with an explosive cliffhanger, which, as it relates to this episode, remains unexplained. What we do know is that Danny's still in town, and he intends on sticking around. Why? Well, classic Danny: It's complicated. Right now, he has one foot in two camps: He wants to avoid whatever he was escaping in Miami — and he'll do whatever is necessary to do so; he also wants to set things right with his family and entrench himself in their collective future. If the first episode convinced you Danny’s character was complex, the second does the same for nearly everyone else in the Rayburn clan. After skipping his bus home, the black sheep's faithful douche-pal Eric comes to his rescue: Danny can crash with Eric's sister (Chloë Sevigny) under the radar, as long as he helps on a sketchy job for some dangerous people.

Regular readers of this site will know how strongly we feel about the excellent movie Pride, which we ranked as one of our firm favourites of 2014. We spoke to writer Stephen Beresford ahead of its release, and since then, he's picked up a BAFTA for his work on the movie.
We caught up with him for a chat looking back at the last six months, as Pride arrives on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK...
I wanted to catch up with you to get the 'during' and 'after' story for Pride, as we spoke originally just before it's release.
You have that lovely line in the film - "to find out you had a friend you never knew existed, well that's the best feeling in the world". This film »
Ellen Dossett, a 71-year-old lesbian, recalls the violent clashes in 1960s Birmingham, Alabama, where she was a white student in her 20s and threatened with expulsion from her Baptist college if she sided with blacks in their struggle for civil rights. "I just didn't have the courage to go up against the authorities in my life," says Dossett, who is still an active member of a Baptist church in Birmingham, "and that has been a big regret of mine." But her resolve to stand up for her beliefs grew - and in 1992, with a daughter newly born to Dossett and her female partner, »

One of the biggest questions fans have when it comes to Gotham is: When will we get to see The Joker. While that might not happen in Season 1, the seeds of this super villain's story will be planted well before the finale. We might not get to see The Joker in the flesh, but his arrival in Gotham Season 2 will surely be hinted at.
The second half of Gotham has enough to keep true DC Comics and Batman fans happy, as it introduces Dick 'Robin' Grayson's parents. We'll also be seeing villains The Scarecrow and The Red Hood. Executive producer Bruno Heller goes onto promise that we'll get a tease of the Clown Prince of villainy before this year calls it a close. But it will be a very small, almost minuscule taste:
"We've said you're going to be waiting a bit longer for it, but this is America -- nobody wants to wait. »
Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire) has been talking about directing the third installment in the "28 Days Later" franchise for many years. Today we have an update from Alex Garland, the writer of the original film. "We've just started talking about it seriously. We've got an idea. Danny [Boyle] and [producer] Andrew [Macdonald] and I have been having quite serious conversations about it so it is a possibility," he explained. "It's complicated. There's a whole bunch of reasons why it's complicated, which are boring so I won't go into, but there's a possibility." We know that there were some rights issues, but everything worked out back in 2010. And regarding the idea, Boyle previously confirmed that the story would take place in Russia. Stay tuned. »
Garland, who penned the novel on which Danny Boyle's "The Beach" was based, has built up a solid resume over the past decade - penning the scripts for "28 Days Later," "Sunshine," "Dredd," "Never Let Me Go" and the video game "Enslaved: Odyssey to the West".
During his talks with the press, the "28 Days Later" franchise came up in discussion and Garland confirmed to IGN that "quite serious conversations" are underway about "28 Months Later," a third film in the horror franchise that would follow-on from the 2002 original and its 2007 sequel:
