'Urban Legends: Final Cut' Deserves Another Chance, and Here’s Why...

14 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

I’m not going to delude myself and think that we’re going to start a revolution, and that Urban Legends: Final Cut will somehow surpass Halloween as the better film. But just hear me out; it’s a much better film than people have ever given it credit to be.

I was surfing around Netflix and saw it had been added; I own the DVD but as is with our age of digital gratification I popped it on anyways. As the credits started I remembered back to when I first saw it. The year was 2000, and I was looking through the DVD selection at my local Ames; a chain long since extinct, and I spotted it. I didn’t even have internet at the time- (go ahead and judge), and had heard nothing about a sequel to Urban Legends. I bought it sight unseen after reading the description, for a modest $24.99.

Six of the Best: Laura Linney

11 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It can’t be easy as a  working actress in Hollywood where, save a few notable exceptions, women are pigeonholed into convenient, one-dimensional archetypes – virgin, vixen, vessel, victim, villain – eventually condemned to onscreen marriages and partnerships with men two decades their senior and then flung into an oubliette when they themselves have the temerity to age.

Laura Linney is one among an increasing number of shrewd professionals who have built a carrier from subverting these supporting roles and using them as stepping stones to leading lady status. To coincide with the DVD release of the fourth and final season of The Big C we are showcasing six of her performances

Annabeth Markum – Mystic River (2003)

Clint Eastwood’s film of Dennis Lehane’s Boston crime noir novel is a singular and powerful film which examines the ripple effect of child abduction in a blue collar neighbourhood, across three lives and twenty five years. »

2014 Emmy Predictions: Best TV Movie/Miniseries Actress

8 April 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Can Jessica Lange rebound here after losing last year to Laura Linney's work on "The Big C: Hereafter"? Even if this last season of "Horror Story" was mediocre overall (though Lange was still great). Not if 80-year old Cicely Tyson has anything to say about it...  Her work in "The Trip To Bountiful" could get her another Emmy in this category, 40 years after her first, in 1974 for "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman." Below are predictions for best TV movie/miniseries actress from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and Assistant TV Editor Ben Travers. Check back as they might very well change 'em up between now and July 10th. Check out predictions in all the categories here. Ben's predictions: 1. Cicely Tyson, The Trip To Bountiful 2. Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven 3. Helena Bonham Carter, Burton and Taylor 4. Ginnifer Goodwin, Killing Kennedy 5. Molly Solverson, Fargo Spoiler: Rebecca Ferguson, The White Queen »

New Teaser For HBO’s The Normal Heart Shows Us A War On Aids

4 April 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Larry Kramer’s fiery 1985 play The Normal Heart, which was revived on Broadway in 2011, is on its way to be one of HBO’s most prestigious projects in 2014. Based on the efforts of activist Ned Weeks in the early 1980s to create an HIV advocacy group, The Normal Heart also focused on the members of the angered gay community in New York during those years, as the AIDS crisis was about to become part of the national conversation.

A short trailer for the HBO film, which airs on May 25th, is now online and only shows a few glimpses at the all-star cast, which includes Mark Ruffalo as Ned Weeks and Taylor Kitsch as Felix Turner, a journalist who falls in love with Weeks. Matt Bomer, Alfred Molina, Jim Parsons, Jonathan Groff, Alec Baldwin and Julia Roberts round out the terrific ensemble.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of footage in this trailer, »

TV News: Collar, Oliviers, Wonder, 100

12 February 2014 4:04 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

White Collar

Production on the sixth and likely final season of USA Network's "White Collar" has not begun as the network and production studio are reportedly disagreeing on the nature of the series conclusion.

The network reportedly wants a mini-series wrap up (ala "The Big C") while the studio would prefer a full final season. Ratings remain solid for the series, but the show is becoming too expensive to produce. [Source: TV guide]

The Oliviers

Ten Cent Adventures is developing the four-hour mini-series "The Oliviers," about the life and love of the iconic British actors Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh.

The story deals with the tempestuous relationship and twenty year marriage between Olivier and Leigh. A director has yet to be attached, while Tarquin Olivier will produce. [Source: Screen]

How Will It End? USA’s ‘White Collar’ Faces Uncertain Future As Renewal Talks Stall

11 February 2014 5:13 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

By this time, USA Network series White Collar would normally be deeply in preproduction, getting ready to start filming in March. But not this year. It’s already mid-February, and there is still no decision on the future of the buddy crime drama whose most recent fifth season ended two weeks ago. I hear there has been some communication between USA and White Collar producer Fox TV Studios but no meaningful dialogue so far. Given the way Season 5 ended — with a cliffhanger involving the abduction of Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) — it is safe to assume that there will be some sort of continuation, likely a conclusion for the series. The question is what that sixth and final installment will be. I hear the network has been mulling a short miniseries to wrap the story in the vein of Showtime’s The Big C, while the studio would prefer a traditional final season. »
