Last weekend.s Saturday Night Live featured an array of Christmas sketches including the host, Amy Adams. And as it goes, some sketches make the cut to be shown on air, and some only go so far as dress rehearsal. But thankfully, SNL posted one of their unaired sketches that is just too good to miss. Watch their hysterical spoof of the cue-card scene from the Christmas-classic, Love Actually: Nothing says Christmas like rewatching the famous British romantic comedy, Love Actually. With that time of the year upon us, the film will fill up thousands of TV and computer screens to watch a star-studded cast feel Christmas in their toes. So of course, SNL took the opportunity to remake one of the more memorable scenes in the movie. Before Andrew Lincoln was killing walkers on The Walking Dead, he was a baby-faced sweetheart, confessing his love to his best »
Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of his own co-written novel is a straightforward horror romp – but a first-rate cast maintain the fever pitch all the way through
Mysteriously absent from most critics’ end-of-year lists, The Strain earns a place alongside more celebrated current dramas The Leftovers, Intruders, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead as it, too, is based on a literary source. A schlock-horror vampire contagion yarn, The Strain was adapted by Mexican monster maestro Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Pacific Rim) and co-writer Chuck Hogan from the first novel of their trilogy about a proposed takeover of the human race by descendents of an ancient vampiric line. Ironically, el Toro first pitched it as a TV series in 2006, but Fox turned him down. (The network later relented, and commissioned it for cable outlet FX, although it shows here, surprisingly, between Dynamo reruns on Watch.)

This Fall saw the debut of a number of new comic book TV shows, as well as a few returning ones. The small screen is now just as exciting as the big one, and while more and more superheroes will invade the big screen between now and 2020, we're expecting the same thing to happen on TV too. In development right now is everything from Supergirl to Teen Titans, and The Defenders,(Daredevil, A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist) but let's get back to 2014 for the time being. What this year was your favourite TV show? Did the respective returns of shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow, and The Walking Dead keep you hooked, or were newbies such as Constantine, The Flash, Gotham, and The Strain more to your liking? Here's your chance to let us know »
As you may have realized, comic book adaptations currently rule the airwaves. While the big budgets and the bold headlines go to the major feature films, the small screen has seen quite the uptick in comic series in recent years. Some, like Fox's Gotham, NBC's Constantine, and The CW's The Flash are enjoying their premieres in 2014, while others like Arrow, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and The Walking Dead are back for yet another round of supernatural storytelling. Hopefully you're a fan of this TV transition, otherwise the coming years are going to be rather upsetting for you since this trend shows no sign of slowing down. But before we're absolutely drowning in comic book shows, we thought we'd take a look at the current slate of comic book adaptations on TV today, in order to pit them against each other, of course. Hit the jump to view the rankings. While »

“The Walking Dead” spinoff series is shaping up! The two leads have been cast as well as the location. Here’s more of what’s in store for fans. The Hollywood Reporter writes that the spinoff, which is currently under the name “Cobalt,” finds our new zombie survivors in Los Angeles. Cliff Curtis will star as Sean Cabrera, a teacher who is surviving the apocalypse with her ex-wife Andrea and their son. The character’s description seems a lot like the characterization of Rick Grimes from the original “Walking Dead”; according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sean is the classic Everyman–a man who has a good heart and wants to right by the people [ Read More ]
[N.B. This article started out as being about Star Trek 3, but then Justin Lin was announced as director before the article was published. Having directed four Fast and Furious films, including the terrific Fast Five, Justin Lin is a brilliant action director, who's bound to deliver on a blockbuster level, although the same could be said of basically any action movie he might work on.
The article follows, slightly reworked for Star Trek 4, seeing as Star Trek is a franchise with lots of potential to explore further, and Justin Lin is a highly sought-after director, who will probably go on to The Bourne Legacy 2 and then perhaps Fast and Furious sequels after finishing Star Trek 3. So this is probably the first article about who should direct Star Trek 4...]
Recently, Roberto Orci stepped down from directing Star Trek 3 (2016), which would have been his directorial debut. He's worked on the screenplays for all three rebooted Star Trek movies, and remains involved in Star Trek 3 as a producer.
The obvious question remained: who would direct Star Trek 3?
With Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) director J.J. Abrams busy directing the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII (2015), Justin Lin is stepping in to direct Star Trek 3, now set for July 8, 2016.

Things are starting to fall into place for codename “Cobalt.” AMC’s “Walking Dead” spin-off has slowly been parsing out information to test the fan waters. Right now we know the show will star Cliff Curtis as divorced teacher Sean Cabrera, Frank Dillane as troubled teen Nick Tomkins, and Alycia Debnam Carey as Frank’s super-together sister Ashley. And now we know Kim Dickens has been tapped as well! According to Deadline, the “Gone Girl” breakout star will play Nancy Tomkins. Billed as a "girl next door with an edge," Tomkins is a guidance counselor (presumably at the same school as Curtis’s teacher), and single mom to Dillane and Carey’s characters. As for the rest, it’s all down to rumor and speculation. It’s been said that while “Cobalt” takes place during the same zombie apocalypse as “The Walking Dead,” the timeline may be earlier. There’s »

The Walking Dead has finally found an actress to shoot zombies alongside Cliff Curtis for its upcoming spinoff: Kim Dickens! According to Variety, she will play Nancy Tompkins, "a thirtysomething single mom to two kids" who works as a guidance counselor before the zombie apocalypse provides the one crisis she doesn't have a pamphlet for. Dickens is best known for Deadwood, which gave her experience dealing with unspeakable acts of violence, and Gone Girl, which gave her experience acting across from creepy hunks of lumbering flesh. »

Movie enthusiasts across various genres can experience an exclusive first look into The Three, launched by Versa Media Inc. and Ava Video Productions, both award-winning production companies in the Midwest. The teaser trailer presents fans with a snapshot of the sci-fi, thriller/horror film that illustrates one man’s frightening journey to discover balance and explores the frailty of the human mind.
Last week it was revealed that The Walking Dead companion series will initially take place in Los Angeles, and early this month it was reported that Cliff Curtis will take on the show’s male lead, leaving many to wonder who would be cast as the female lead. Fans don’t have to mull that one over anymore, though, as it’s been revealed that Gone Girl‘s Kim Dickens has been cast in the lead female role in the companion series.
Deadline reported the news of Kim Dickens’ casting today. Dickens recently had a fantastic turn in David Fincher’s Gone Girl as speculative Detective Rhonda Boney. Her acting credits also include recurring roles on Friday Night Lights, Lost, Deadwood, and Sons of Anarchy.
Dickens’ role in the companion series is believed to be a guidance counselor with a troubled past who works at the same school as Cliff Curtis’ divorced teacher character, »

Kim Dickens is primed to become a mainstay on our television screens next season. After signing on for a recurring role on House of Cards Season Three, Deadline has learned that the actress has now joined AMC’s The Walking Dead prequel series as the female lead.
This tidbit means the Gone Girl star will act opposite Cliff Curtis as a guidance counsellor, who soon finds herself caught amidst the flesh-munching action before long. It’s understood that Dickens’ character will be the mother of Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam, who joined the spinoff’s ever-growing casting list only a few short weeks ago.
According to the report, AMC took their time in casting the coveted role, rummaging through a list of candidates before settling on Dickens — and no wonder, given her performance in David Fincher’s psychological thriller. Besides, the actress is no stranger to the small screen, given »
