The History Channel has released a full trailer for their new four-hour Houdini miniseries. The show will follow the life of the legendary magician from his beginnings in desperate poverty to the worldwide fame that he gained. The series stars Adrien Brody, and it looks like it's going to be pretty damn good.
Before David Blaine and David Copperfield, there was one man whose name was synonymous with being the master of illusion and escape - Harry Houdini. Houdini follows the man behind the magic as he finds fame, engages in espionage, battles spiritualists and encounters the greatest names of the era, from U.S. presidents to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Grigori Rasputin. The drama will chronicle the life of a man who can defy death through his stunts, his visions and his mastery of illusion.

Deadline reports some interesting news that Sony has hired Lisa Joy Nolan to write the screenplay of a female led-film in the universe of The Amazing Spider-Man. This news comes after recent developments that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018. Sony has been planning to create their own Avengers-style cinematic universe with The Amazing Spider-Man, with planned Sinister Six and Venom spinoffs, but after the less than positive critical response to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it being the lowest grossing Spider-Man film to date at $707 million (good for Spider-man, but not great), Sony is currently retooling their plans.
Though The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may be the series the character deserves and doesn’t instill much confidence in the franchise going further, it is exciting to hear that we’re getting a female-centric superhero film. Though many backwards-thinking folk may cite Catwoman and Elektra for reasons why »

While Sony has denied that they are doing a complete revamp of their most important franchise after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 failed to live up to expectations this summer, it seems that may not be the case. Deadline claims the studio is doing a top-to-bottom revamp, and are planning a female led superhero movie set within the The Amazing Spider-Man universe for release in 2017.
The Sinister Six will be the next movie Sony releases in their ongoing The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, a spin-off that will focus on six main villains who come together for a common cause. It will be in theaters November 16, 2016. Drew Goddard is set to write and direct that spin-off, with Avi Arad and Matthew Tolmach producing. It hasn't been confirmed which villains will appear in the spin-off, but Vulture, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman were teased during The Amazing Spider-Man 2's end credits scene, »
Ridley Scott is gunning for an Oscar – and if this fall’s buzzy Exodus: Gods and Kings doesn’t get him to that Dolby theatre stage (as it probably won’t, given the slew of competitors including Inherent Vice, Unbroken, Gone Girl and Interstellar), he’s already lined up his next attempt. The Gladiator director’s next film, sci-fi drama The Martian, has been shifted from its March 2016 date and set for a prime awards-season release date of November 25th, 2015.
That’s a big show of confidence in the project from 20th Century Fox. And perhaps the studio has good reason to be excited, seeing as Warner Bros.’ space-set drama Gravity shaped up into a major awards-season juggernaut last year. Based on the eBook by Andy Weir, The Martian follows an astronaut who becomes stranded on the Red Planet. With depleting oxygen and slimming options, he must reach his crew »

While it remains to be seen how Karen's relationship with Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) plays out on the show, Karen was the longest-running love interest for the blind attorney/costumed vigilante in the Marvel comic books. Marvel legend Stan Lee created the character, who debuted in 1964 as a secretary at Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson's law firm, before she eventually learned about Matt's double life. Ellen Pompeo portrayed Karen Page in the 2003 Daredevil feature.
Take a look at the official press release below for Marvel's Daredevil.

Universal Pictures will release Clifford the Big Red Dog on April 8, 2016. Hit the jump for more on the aforementioned projects.

Week in Review rounds up the best of the rest of film and TV news hitting the web this week. Check out the rest of the Sos Blog for more news updates.
Unless your name is Edgar Wright, it’s hard to imagine a superhero movie of any caliber and pedigree not somehow getting made in today’s day and age.
And yet in 1997, that’s exactly what happened. Tim Burton, many years after the success of his original Batman, was attached to direct Superman Lives, originally starring none other than Nicolas Cage as everyone’s favorite Kryptonian and adapted from a screenplay by Kevin Smith.
Just how in God’s green Earth did this brilliant, strange mash-up of talents in a movie never come to light is the question behind a documentary currently in production, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?

After several pieces of news that Sony Pictures is struggling to continue and expand its Spider-Man franchise, the studio has now announced the release plan for "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" and "Sinister Six," which is a spin-off focusing on Spider-Man villains. "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" was previously scheduled to hit theaters on June 10th, 2016, but has now been pushed back all the way to 2018. The studio has instead given the release date to "Uncharted," a big screen adaptation of the video game franchise. That means that the next film from the Spider-Man universe will be "Sinister Six" which will hit theaters on November 11th, 2016. "With 'Sinister Six' in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016," said Sony. »
We’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.
THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

Sony may not be bringing anything big to this year’s Comic-Con, but they’ve made some huge announcements today. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was originally scheduled for a 2016 release, but Uncharted (the big screen adaptation of the popular PlayStation video game series) has now taken that movie’s June 10th release date.
However, we Will be revisiting the Spider-Man Cinematic Universe two years from now as Sinister Six is scheduled to open on November 11th, 2016. Written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), that movie focuses on a team of villains who team up to take down Peter Parker.
It’s not clear whether Spider-Man will appear in that movie or who will make up the team’s roster, but Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin will likely be there, with the likes of Doctor Octopus and Electro joining him.

Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to 2018, the year The Amazing Spider-Man 4 was previously expected to hit theaters. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems »

Looks like slightly underwhleming box office returns for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 weren’t enough to kill Sony’s plans to build an expansive superhero universe. The studio has dated The Sinister Six, a movie that features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, for release on November 11th, 2016. As part of the new release date, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been bumped from its June 10th, 2016 slot by two years to May 4th, 2018.
Drew Goddard apparently delivered a take on the Sinister Six project that greatly excited execs at Sony. The Cabin in the Woods helmer is set to write and direct the spinoff, which currently has “a rough script.” Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group’s Doug Belgrad said:
“With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016.”
It’s still unknown which villains will feature into »

With exclusive images having been unveiled by Entertainment Weekly recently, and surely plenty of news to come from this years San Diego Comic-Con, fans are understandably getting excited about The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon’s sequel to his own 2012 comic book blockbuster, it is the latest film to come from one of cinema’s most diverse talents.
Throughout the last decade alone he has brought a whole variety of fictional worlds to the screen; from sci-fi western Serenity, to Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing, and game changing horror The Cabin In The Woods, he has also realised these visions as a writer, director, producer, and even composer. This is to say nothing of those which he worked on beforehand, such as Toy Story and Alien Resurrection, and the low budget indie In Your Eyes, which was made available to rent online earlier this year. »

Hot on the heels of word that Peter Shinkoda would be playing an original character named Hachiro in Netflix and Marvel’s upcoming TV series Daredevil, we’ve learned that another talented actor has joined the 13-episode series’ already impressive cast. Deborah Ann Woll, known to HBO subscribers for her role as vampire Jessica on the long-running True Blood, has signed on to portray Karen Page, a love interest for Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox), a blind lawyer by day who fights crime as the titular vigilante by night.
In the comics, Page was Murdock’s most enduring love interest, appearing in the very first issue of Daredevil back in April of 1964 as his secretary. The Netflix series has also cast Elden Henson as Murdock’s best friend and legal partner Foggy Nelson, who also had a romantic interest in Page throughout the comic-book series, but whether a love triangle will »
