Man from Atlantis leads new Warner Archive Instant titles

2 May 2014 9:34 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Here is a list of May's additions to Warner Archive Instant's streaming video service. If you aren't a subscriber, you can sign up for a free two week trial at instant.WarnerArchive.com.

Man From Atlantis (1976-78) 

It all begins with a storm and a man washed up on shore. A man with gills... Before he shot to superstardom in Dallas playing Bobby Ewing, Patrick Duffy donned swim trunks for a super-heroic turn as Mark Harris, Man from Atlantis. Debuting in a series of Sci-Fi movies-of-the-week, the adventures of the amnesiac Atlantean so captivated audiences that the movies spawned a weekly TV series. Eschewing the TV movies' more cerebral approach for more light-hearted action fare, the series took a more campy turn only to sink into the depths of TV history (but not before becoming the first American TV import to Communist China!). Now's your chance to explore below the »

Richard Ayoade: 'Making films is exhilarating – and terrifying'

23 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Richard Ayoade shot to fame as Moss in The It Crowd but it was Submarine, his debut behind the camera, that won him critical acclaim. As his new film, The Double, is released, he talks about pride, performing and giving up his pop dreams

The premise of Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1846 novella The Double is simple but ingenious: a man lives an entirely unremarkable existence until one day his exact doppelganger shows up. This incongruous situation fast becomes insufferable for two reasons: first, the new guy is slick where he is stammering, popular where he's forgettable, Day-Glo to his beige; and, second, because no one else notices any likeness at all between the pair of them.

The Double, it's said, is meant as an allegory: the straight man is Dostoevsky in real life, shy and often awkward; the arriviste is the author 2.0, the person he sometimes wished he was, who is quick-witted and irresistible to women. »

10 TV Episodes You Didn’t Know Were Filmed By Famous Hollywood Directors

7 March 2014 2:54 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Television

TV directors never seem to get much attention. It’s always the writers and showrunners who get the credit – people like J.J. Abrams, Aaron Sorkin, Dan Harmon, and Joss Whedon. They’re seen as the helmsmen of TV, the ones who keep the ship righted. But directors?

It doesn’t help that most of the big name directors stick to film. Or so you thought. Actually, famous directors do TV episodes far more often than you’d think. Some got their start there, like Robert Altman with multiple TV shows, including Bonanza and U.S. Marshall, or Steven Spielberg with Marcus Welby, M.D. and Columbo. And, of course, certain directors had pet projects in T.V., like David Lynch’s eerily offbeat Twin Peaks.

In recent years, in the so-called “Golden Age” of television, more famous directors are coming to the small screen. You think you »
