Steven Soderbergh’s horror film shot on an iPhone gets two new images

2018 is shaping up to be yet another creatively ambitious year in the career of Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh. His show Mosaic, which initially debuted in November as an iOS application that allowed users to choose their own adventure/perspective in a murder-mystery story, will premiere on HBO tonight, while another innovative project of Soderbergh’s, Unsane, has just received two new stills.

The images, courtesy of the press site for the Berlin International Film Festival (where the film will premiere next month), give audiences their first look at the upcoming Claire Foy-starring psychological horror-thriller, which is especially noteworthy due to Soderbergh’s decision to shoot the entire motion picture on an iPhone over the course of only one week. Check out a worried, possibly unhinged Foy below…

Details on the project are being kept under wraps, but the basic premise follows a woman (Foy) who is forced to face

Fox's The Resident Premiere: Grade It!

Fox's The Resident Premiere: Grade It!
If you’re looking for the next Grey’s Anatomy or another Chicago Med, Fox’s The Resident is not it — and that’s a good thing. From the horrifying opening minutes of Sunday’s series premiere, in which Bruce Greenwood’s chief of surgery botches a routine appendectomy and pressures the selfie-taking nurses into covering for him, it’s clear that the new medical drama is like no other hospital show currently on TV.

All hail the ‘Veep’! Julia Louis-Dreyfus sets SAG Awards record for most wins

All hail the ‘Veep’! Julia Louis-Dreyfus sets SAG Awards record for most wins
Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a few more records to her name. With her two wins at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards for TV comedy actress and comedy ensemble, the “Veep” star is now the most decorated performer at SAG with nine trophies.

The previous record was eight, held by Julianna Margulies (“ER,” “The Good Wife”) and Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”).

Louis-Dreyfus’ solo victory made her the first actress in either TV genre to win five individual trophies. It was her second straight and third total SAG for “Veep,” and she has two more at home for “Seinfeld,” in addition to three ensemble prizes for “Seinfeld.” She was previously tied with Margulies and Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) with four individual wins. (Baldwin holds the overall individual record with seven, which he won consecutively.)

‘The Resident': Matt Czuchry on Why New Fox Series Could Be ‘The Shield’ of the Medical Genre

‘The Resident': Matt Czuchry on Why New Fox Series Could Be ‘The Shield’ of the Medical Genre
Matt Czuchry has dabbled in the legal world with “The Good Wife” and been a part of a mother-daughter story for the ages with “Gilmore Girls.” But now he’s ready to get his hands dirty in the medical field on Fox’s new show “The Resident.” Seriously, it’s not going to be a pretty picture. Though Czuchry plays a charming doctor, don’t try and compare the series to “Grey’s Anatomy” — or any other medical drama for that matter — as the actor tells TheWrap this isn’t that kind of show. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. “The medical genre is beloved and...

The Resident Stars Reveal What Sets Fox's New Medical Drama Apart From All the Rest

The Resident Stars Reveal What Sets Fox's New Medical Drama Apart From All the Rest
If you've found yourself growing tired of the general same-ness of TV's current crop of medical dramas, allow us to introduce you to The Resident. Fox's latest offering in the genre, premiering on a special night and time on Sunday, Jan. 21 after the Nfc Championship game, is an attempt to flip the medical drama on its side, exposing the dark underbelly of the medical system in this country rather than simply shining a light on the heroic doctors and nurses working in the field. The series stars The Good Wife vet Matt Czuchry and Revenge alum Emily VanCamp, among others, and for VanCamp, who admitted to E! News that she never imagined she'd star in a medical drama, it was that twist that lured her in. ...

The Resident: Matt Czuchry and Moral Dilemmas - Two Fine Reasons to Watch

On Sunday, January 21, The Resident airs the first of its two-part series premiere on Fox.

When the pilot was initially introduced to critics, the cast was a little bit smaller. It has grown in scope and the artwork for the show now focuses on Matt Czuchry's Dr. Conrad Hawkins just a bit more than Manish Dayal's Dr. Devon Pravesh.

As a fan of both actors (Czuchry from all of his previous roles and Dayal from Halt and Catch Fire), only one of them is given the material on The Resident to make up for lost time, and that's Czuchry.

It's not easy make a genre show stand out from other genre shows. We're seeing that now with another Fox show, 9-1-1, as it made a splash in the first responders club by injecting adrenaline into every scene and stepping back a bit from immersing viewers too soon

Michael J. Fox is heading back to the small screen, with Deadline reporting that the actor is set for a five-episode arc in the second season of ABC’s Designated Survivor.
