On Friday, Netflix premieres the first season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” — and one of the revelations of this interview with executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is that there’s a chance the show might film a second season before a planned “Defenders” series. The drama is part of a cycle of Netflix-Marvel shows that includes “Daredevil” and an upcoming Luke Cage series starring Mike Colter, who also appears in “Jessica Jones” alongside star Krysten Ritter.
Of course, a second season of “Jessica Jones” hasn’t been officially greenlit, but Rosenberg said she is raring to go if Netflix and Marvel give her the go-ahead. By the way, this interview is safe to read if you haven’t seen the show yet — and it’s also worth pointing out that you don’t need to have seen any other Marvel TV shows or movies in order to enjoy “Jessica Jones, »

Back in September, we reported that Kathryn Bigelow, Catherine Hardwicke and Mimi Leder were Warner Bros. and MGM's front runners to direct their Tomb Raider reboot. Despite reports from earlier this summer that the studios were specifically seeking a female director, Heat Vision Blog reports that Norwegian director Roar Uthaug (Cold Prey) has signed on to direct, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Transformers 5) coming aboard to rewrite the script. The screenplay had previously been worked on by Hawk Ostby & Mark Fergus (Cowboys & Aliens), Evan Daugherty (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Marti Noxon (Fright Night).
No plot details have been released yet, except that this Tomb Raider reboot will feature a much younger Lara Croft, chronicling her first ever adventure. MGM is teaming up with Warner Bros. to produce and distribute the reboot with producer Graham King's Gk Films, which picked up the rights to the video game franchise from Square »
Disney's The Finest Hours is the incredible true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's most dangerous sea rescue. The film is an adaptation of the best selling book by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. In the winter of 1952, a powerful nor'easter capsized the oil tankers, SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer, off the coast of Massachusetts. A group of intrepid sailors, led by Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), took a rescue boat into the storm. They faced impossible odds with temerity and skill, earning a storied place in history for their valiant efforts.
Movieweb was invited to the set of The Finest Hours in Quincy, Massachusetts last November. The production was fairly secretive at this point. Apart from the title, which was obviously correlated to the book, I had no idea what to expect on this trip. A small cohort of reporters were flown into Boston's Logan airport, then »
See the new trailer from the heroic action-thriller The Finest Hours which has just arrived from Disney. This exciting drama tells the remarkable true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard. Presented in Digital 3D, Real D 3D and IMAX 3D, the film transports audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale.
Sure to leave you on the edge of your seat, The Finest Hours is the remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. On February 18, 1952, a massive nor'easter struck New England. The storm pummeled towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaked havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path. This included the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. »

Press Release: Strange Kids Club, an Austin-based entertainment blog known for its disgustingly fun parody products and pop culture-inspired collectibles, is pleased to announce the launch of Cuddle Creeps™, a new line of comically evil printed pillows that will be available exclusively online at HorrorDecor.net starting today.
Kicking off this first wave of Cuddle Creeps are 'Regan' and 'Ed', two soft and cuddly stuffed terrors ready to feed on your nightmares. "We're looking to pay tribute primarily to lesser known horror icons within the genre," explains Rondal. "If fans dig these as much as we do there are plans for even more parodies based on some familiar faces."
Each character has a distinct personality and features a hilarious biography that's a tongue-in-cheek twist »

In our ongoing recap of last week's Ultimate Horror Poll -- in which over 100 genre experts helped determine the 100 greatest horror movies of all time by voting for their personal "ten best" -- the time has come to take stock of every honorable mention and clarification given by the survey's participants that weren't included in the original piece. To be clear, voters weren't asked for honorable mentions specifically; but a handful felt strongly enough about their "bubbling under" choices to list them anyway (which proved extraordinarily useful in helping break ties on the Top 100). See below for a full listing, as well as explanations from Bloody-Disgusting founder/editor-in-chief Brad Miska and director Corin Hardy ("The Hallow") on why they voted the way they did. Honorable Mentions: Barbara Crampton (Actor, "Re-Animator") Dracula (1931) Jaws (1975) Nosferatu (1922) Poltergeist (1982) Vampyr (1932) Brad Miska (Founder/Editor-in-Chief, Bloody-Disgusting.com; Producer) -- See Full Explanations Below Beetlejuice (1988) Bill & Ted's »

Tonioli caused a stir yesterday after describing Jay McGuiness' pasa doble as "the bull's bollocks".
Harriott said of the incident: "Well, I think it kind of reminds everybody that it is live television – things can happen like that.
"And you know, I can't really speak for Bruno or anybody else. It was such a quick thing that happened, and I thought that Tess [Daly] was spot on when she apologised to viewers.
"But it's the last thing you want to hear – you don't want to hear that type of thing on primetime television, Saturday night family TV. But it's live TV, and sometimes things do go wrong. I'm sure that he didn't mean it. »
Strictly Come Dancing Week Five: All the scores and judges' comments
Head judge Len Goodman said he agreed with his fellow judges' decision.
It marked the second time that Jamelia and MacManus have been saved in the dance-off. Harriott and Lowe had survived in Week Three.
The result continues the run of male celebrities being eliminated from this year's show, »
On last night's (October 24) show, Darcey Bussell noted that Harriott's "character sometimes overtakes occassionally", with both Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli adding that he comes up with his own interpretation of a dance.
The celebrity chef has admitted he struggled to hide his personality while performing on the show with professional partner Natalie Lowe.
"You go through rigorous training, hours and hours every day to achieve a certain standard, and I think that of course your personality comes out in the dance," Harriott explained. "I always see the glass half full and I am an exuberant type of person."
He noted that four of his five dances were energetic and that his waltz allowed him to show another "more controlled" side. »
The celebrity chef became the fourth male to exit this year's competition when he was elimimated tonight (October 25) with professional partner Natalie Lowe.
"I think the very first week when I was involved in it, when we were dancing, I was asked about who was looking good and I said, 'The girls look very, very strong'," Harriott recalled.
"We've just got a very, very strong collection of people there. I put my effort in but the old 58-year-old bones didn't quite stand up to it all! But I gave it my best, I really did."
He also weighed into the debate over whether the fact that some of this year's celebrities had previous dance training gave them an advantage. »
Here's what happened when we listened to BBC Radio 4's chilling adaptation of The Stone Tape in an atmospheric London crypt...
I’m sitting in a crypt. Specifically, I’m sitting in the 17th century crypt beneath the church of St Andrew in Holborn. Above me, busy Londoners are making their way home from work; at semi-regular intervals, I can hear the distant rumbling of Underground trains. It’s still just about daylight outside, but down here in the crypt, it’s dark. If it weren’t for the green lights on the radio headphones of the people around me, it’d be pitch black. I’m here to listen to Radio 4’s new adaptation of The Stone Tape, and it’s hard to think of a spookier or more appropriate way to do it.
This is the first of several listening events being hosted by In »
Horror fans have been dying for a good HD release of Tales From The Crypt Presents: Demon Knight for quite some time, and thanks to gang at Scream Factory, we not only have just that, but a special edition Bluray of release of Bordello Of Blood as well. Both releases feature brand new commentaries, as well as in depth docs detailing the making of and in the case of the latter Tales film, the troubles of everything from casting to diva attitudes. We had the chance to check out both releases, so sit back and read on!
There are very few horror/comedies as entertaining as 1995’s Demon Knight. The first of three Tales From the Crypt films (2002’s Ritual was so bad that very few fans even acknowledge it), the Ernest Dickerson-helmed film was an instant hit with horror fans, and rightfully so, it’s kind of perfect. »

Conflict drives drama. What people want and how they set out to get it makes for the best entertainment: Chief Brody wants to make Amity Island a safe place for his kids; Indiana Jones wants to find the Ark of the Covenant; Mark Watney wants to survive on Mars, A giant shark, a bunch of Nazis, and a planet without an atmosphere respectively stand in their way.
But conflict isn't only a device from which to hang big action sequences. The tension between ideas can make for brilliant drama - the kind of film and television that you think about for years afterwards - and one of the best screenwriters for this conflict of ideas was Nigel Kneale.
Kneale was born in 1922 in Barrow-in-Furness and, »
