Today we have the long awaited Riddick official trailer. Riddick will hit theaters on Sept 6 2013. The film has officially been branded the dreaded Rrating but given Riddicks following (the first two combined have raked in more than 150 million worldwide) that may not slow ticket sales too much.

In addition to Diesel and Urban Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists) Katee Sackhoff (Halloween Resurrection) Nolan Gerard Funk (Deadgirl) Bokeem Woodbine (Devil) Raoul Trujillo (Cowboys Aliens) and Keri Hilson (Easy A) also star. »
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »

For decades, ex-government agent Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as “The Concierge of Crime.”
Now, he’s mysteriously surrendered to the FBI with an explosive offer: he will help catch a long-thought-dead terrorist, Ranko Zamani, »

"The Michael J. Fox Show" is helping bring back the family comedy to NBC. The series stars Fox as Mike Henry, a news anchor with Parkinson's, who goes back to work thanks to some pushing from his family, particularly his wife Anne, played by Betsy Brandt.
"I was just excited when I heard he had a show because I love him and I want to watch him," Brandt said of her co-star. "I think he's one of the funniest people on TV ever -- such a gifted actor and also such a great guy. There are not enough good things to say about him."
The actress is going from the dark world of "Breaking Bad" to the comedy world thought up by Fox, "Cougar Town's" Sam Laybourne and "Easy A" veteran Will Gluck, but Brandt said it was an easy transition.

The "Office" alum and longtime "Boston Legal" star returns to the spotlight on the Peacock network and this time, instead of upholding the law (albeit via blackmail, bribery and the like), he's breaking it. In NBC's upcoming series "The Blacklist," Spader stars as Raymond “Red” Reddington, the most wanted man in the world.
Check out Spader and his devilish ways below in NBC's new four-minute trailer for "The Blacklist", as well as two new preview clips, and scroll down for more previews and official descriptions of the new series on NBC's 2013-2014 schedule: the “Ironside" remake starring Blair Underwood, the new Mike O'Malley comedy "Welcome To The Family," Sean Hayes' return to sitcoms with "Sean Saves The World," and, of course, the highly-anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show."

Chicago – When you’re in as much of a ratings struggle as NBC, it makes sense to shake things up and that’s exactly what they’re doing in the Fall with a new show or an old show in a new time every single night of the week. “Chicago Fire,” “Revolution,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “Parenthood” are moving. “Community” is being held until a midseason, 13-episode run. No decision yet made on “Celebrity Apprentice” or “Hannibal,” which isn’t that surprising as they are mid-season shows anyway although it shouldn’t give fans of either program confidence as NBC announced a midseason schedule as well and they’re not on it. Anything could still happen with either program however and they could be held as replacements for shows that fail. That may be the best shot for “Hannibal” fans now. The best new show on the »

Amanda Bynes has had one charge of driving on a suspended licence dropped. The 27-year-old actress was facing two counts of driving on a suspended licence after incidents at Burbank Airport in California last year but after her lawyer entered a no contest plea on her behalf in court on Thursday (09.05.13), the second offence was thrown out, according to RadarOnline. Amanda - who now lives in New York and wasn't present for the hearing - was placed on three years informal probation and ordered to have a valid driver's licence when driving a car in California. The 'Easy A' actress - who has sparked concern for her welfare in recent months after a series of bizarre incidents - recently »
Also getting a green light are the Sean Hayes sitcom Sean Saves the World, DJ Nash’s Family Guide and Jason Katims’ comedy About a Boy. They join the previously-ordered Michael J. Fox Show and Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ Dracula.

The King's Speech actor has a busy schedule right now: Allen's next, France-set movie is one of four projects he is linked with
Stone's potential involvement was revealed by Deadline last week, when the Easy A actor was said to be in talks. She and Firth are now officially on board the new film, which will mark Allen's return to the fertile French soil where he shot 2011 acclaimed time-travel fantasy Midnight in Paris. It will be the veteran director's eighth movie in his ongoing late-era European cruise, which began with London-set Match Point in 2005 and has also seen him travel to Italy and Spain for films such as 2008's Vicky Cristina Barcelona and last year's To Rome with Love.

It must be really difficult, day in and day out, to have a job you hate, to create work that you're not proud of, and then have to pedal that work out to the masses on a daily basis. I mean, I wouldn't know—I'm not Katy Perry—but it seems as though Gossip Girl stud Penn Badgley has a slight understanding of what that might be like. In a recent interview, he basically did the verbal version of placing his resume on the desk, standing on said desk, squatting, and taking a poop on it. How you like him now?
When speaking about his latest role, playing the late Jeff Buckley in Greetings from Tim Buckley, he felt inclined to drip all of his past projects (from the teen-targeted TV show Gossip Girl to his teen-targeted films like John Tucker Must Die and Easy A) in roaring waves of »

Spotted: A floppy-haired actor biting the glamorous hand that fed him.
Penn Badgley always seemed like the most intellectual member of Gossip Girl’s cast — perhaps because of his preternaturally deep voice, or the way he held up a “Bring Back the Glass-Steagall Act” sign at Occupy Wall Street in the fall of 2011, or because his chief competitors for that title are people like Chase Crawford and Taylor Momsen. And given this, it’s not totally surprising that Badgley secretly felt like a show that hinged on faked deaths and dowries — dowries! In the year 2012! — was sort of beneath him. »

He may be currently creating sparks on the set of Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-man 2 as the main villain Electro, but Jamie Foxx is now expected to join Quvenzhané Wallis in Easy A director Will Gluck’s re-imagining of hit Broadway and film musical, Annie. The Oscar-winning actor is in final negotiations for the role of Benjamin Stacks, a variation on the character Daddy Warbucks, previously played by the great Albert Finney in John Huston’s 1980 classic.
This new adaptation of Annie, which originated in the comic-strip ‘Little Orphan Annie’, is thought to me a modern update with a hip-hop twist. Overbrook Entertainment’s James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith are producing alongside Jay Brown, Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, who’ll also supply a number of new songs.

Sony Pictures already confirmed that "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhane Wallis, who received an Oscar nomination for her performance, has been cast as the title character in "Annie," which is being produced by Will Smith and Jay-z. Based on a daily comic strip that debuted in 1924, "Little Orphan Annie" told the story of a little girl who, after escaping from an orphanage, is taken in by the rich Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks. About a month ago, NY Post learned that the studio was in talks with Justin Timberlake to play the role of Daddy Warbucks, but now comes word that Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) has received an official offer to play the character. Negotiations are currently underway. While Foxx will play Daddy Warbucks, the character's name has been changed to Benjamin Stacks, which literally means stacks of $100 bills (Benjamins). "Annie" will be directed by Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits »
It was announced earlier this year that Wallis would star in Sony's remake of the beloved 1982 Broadway adaptation, taking the lead role as originally played by Aileen Quinn.
Production on Annie is expected to begin in autumn, with a 2014 release date planned.

As Will Smith, Jay-z and Sony finally see their efforts to launch a remake of Annie take off, the cast is coming into focus. Quvenzhané Wallis landed the lead already, but the other key role of Daddy Warbucks was still up for grabs. Until now, that is, because it appears Jamie Foxx will take it on.In what seems to be a fitting move for this hip-hop-flavoured update, Foxx has been offered the role of Benjamin Stacks, the Warbucks for the new millennium. The name, of course, is another gag on cash – meaning his stacks of Benjamins, aka hundred dollar bills (these show President Benjamin Franklin, fact fans). It’s all about the Benjamins. He’ll be the one to take Annie in and away from her horrible orphanage, assuming he makes a deal with the studio.Easy A’s Will Gluck came aboard in January to direct and re-write »
• Michael Fassbender (Shame) is attached to play the title role in a film update of Macbeth, William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy about a scheming nobleman intent on ruling Scotland. The play has been adapted for the big screen a number of times, including Orson Welles’ 1948 version in which he also played the character of Macbeth, and Roman Polanski’s 1971 version which starred Jon Finch. Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders) will direct the Fassbender update which will reportedly use the original language. The part of Lady Macbeth has not been cast yet. [Screen Daily]
