The good guys over at Slash Film have posted excerpts from their chat with Kevin Feige, who's become quite the Marvel mouthpiece as of today, amid promotion for Thor: The Dark World. When the site asked the producer how Ultron will be a bigger threat in The Avengers sequel than Malekith seems to be in The Dark World, Feige explains: "I don’t think it’s going to be about saving the universe every time. We’ve said that. It’s not about saving planet earth every time. It might be many times, but the threat that Ultron brings is certainly worthy of all the Avengers needing to come together and also the timing does play a large part of that. When you see a threat coming you have more time to assemble. There’s not a whole lot more I can say on that." In light of the three »
At this point on "Beauty and the Beast," even love is a lie. That's what become apparent to just about everyone in the "Liar, Liar" episode. Sure, some of those lies are for good causes. But can anything good come out of something as fundamentally bad as a lie?
This recap may have the answer.
While covering up an illicit bruise in the hickey location, Catherine is first interrupted by a text from Gabe and then a visit from her sister. Heather is there to tell Cat about her new job and then not tell Cat about their father.
Vincent walks in on Jt jump-roping to pop music. He's all serious and stuff, totally just looking for Catherine and not interested in his buddy's workout routine. Jt isn't cool with this and starts down memory lane solo.
It's just that Vincent feels really badly about hurting Catherine the other night. »
FX’s limited series adaptation of the Academy Award winning film Fargo just became the must-see TV event of Spring 2014, with the addition of even more big names to its cast.
Previously announced as being a true crime story with new characters, while retaining the “trademark humour, murder and ‘Minnesota nice’ from the classic film,” Fargo will see previous Coen Brothers collaborator Billy Bob Thornton play the manipulative Lorne Malvo. His path will cross with that of a small town insurance salesman named Lester Nygaard (played by Martin Freeman), setting him on a path to destruction.
This week the wider cast has been announced, and it seems that showrunner Noah Hawley has been shopping through some of the hottest titles in recent years. »

WWE's "Night of Champions" ended on an awkward high note. Daniel Bryan won the WWE Championship --- again -- but it wasn't without some controversy. The referee's count was very fast, but it wasn't acknowledged by anyone.
The big news: Fast forward one night, and "WWE Raw" kicks off with Bryan heading to the ring with the title, as the crowd screams "Yes!" Daniel doesn't get much celebrating time before Triple H comes out. He points out the obvious fast count before making the referee, Scott Armstrong, head to the ring to explain himself.
Armstrong plays it off as some sort of conspiracy that he cooked up with Bryan, who says he played no part in it. Triple H strips Bryan of the title, leaving it vacant. If WWE wants fans to ever buy Daniel Bryan as a legitimate champion, having him only hold the title less than a »
We’ve already heard from creator of the Kick-Ass comics Mark Miller and now it’s the turn of the three main cast members. We were there to witness some of the final battle sequence which takes place in the Red Mist’s (now The Motherf*cker) evil lair. The good guys were all dressed in their superhero outfits, with the bad guys looking particularly vicious, welding steel bars and readying to take their positions for what will undoubtedly be an epic battle in the finished film.
We got to see a few takes where Aaron Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s stunt doubles went head to head. Not long after this, those same men were both outside gasping for air as the wet suit and the brand new leather fetish suit modeled by The Motherf*cker were beginning to take their toll! Chloe Mortz Hit Girl was also on the stage, »

I’ve been counting on savvy filmmaker Guillermo del Toro to give us something more than a Transformers clone, and my faith in him hasn’t been misplaced. Despite outward appearances, Pacific Rim is not just another rock-‘em-sock-‘em robot movie, but a fresh, genuinely exciting action yarn set in a science-fiction future. The good guys and bad guys are clearly delineated, and what’s at stake is nothing less than the survival of civilization. I’d call that “rooting interest.” Travis Beacham’s story, which he developed as a screenplay in collaboration with del Toro, quickly and smoothly provides all the exposition we need. Terrifying monsters, called Kaiju, have emerged from the depths...

It's time to find out the Mvp and his or her nominee, plus who is going to win the second Power of Veto in the "Big Brother 15" house? Unless you watch the live feeds and you're already way ahead of this.
Meanwhile, Candice has completely figured out what is going on in the house, moreso than any other hamster (and this also holds true on the live feeds). She knows an all-guys alliance is running the show and that Aaryn is just Jeremy's puppet. What's too bad is that Candice can't seem to round up an alliance to go against the guys because the guys have gotten their hooks into too many people around the house.
Speaking of Jeremy, »
We've seen the pilots of Fox's new shows, and while they're not for review (things often change drastically before the shows are set to premiere), we do want to share our first reactions to what's coming in the fall and midseason.
This quick guide is designed to get you excited for some new shows ... and to warn you to curb your enthusiasm for others. Just keep in mind that we'll have full reviews of the final pilots closer to airdate. For now, here are our snap judgments of Fox's new shows for the 2013-2014 TV season.

There are nine new scripted shows coming to Fox that were ready to preview. Are Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher TV's best new duo? Is the modern-day spin on "Sleepy Hollow" as bizarre as it sounds? HuffPost TV staffers Maureen Ryan, Maggie Furlong, Jaimie Etkin, Chris Harnick, Alex Moaba, »

The latest film from the team responsible for the fairly enjoyable Ice Age series and Rio, this 3D animated movie is an ecological fable largely aimed at kids and centres on the epic struggle in an American forest between the positive forces of life and the negative ones of decay. The good guys are led by the Leafmen, a band of diminutive warriors who carry swords and long bows, fly on the backs of happy birds and worship a queen. The bad guys are commanded by the evil and equally diminutive Mandrake, and they control a flock of ravens and a colony (or cloud) of bats. Observing it all from above are two humans – a dotty environmentalist and his cute teenage daughter. Basically, it's a passable combination of Bambi, The Borrowers and Avatar (which plays in my memory as an animated picture). A »

The hot cable comedy project, which has Billy Crystal attached to star, co-write and executive produce, Burn Notice creator Matt Nix co-writing/executive producing and Curb Your Enthusiasm and Borat‘s Larry Charles directing/co-writing and executive producing, has been picked up by FX with a pilot order. Titled The Comedians, the single-camera comedy, which was taken out earlier this month, is produced by Fox TV Studios, marking the first FX pilot to not come out of the in-house FX Prods. In The Comedians, Crystal plays a superstar veteran comedian who is reluctantly paired with a younger, edgier comedian for a late-night comedy sketch show. It is based on the 2004 Swedish series Ulveson And Herngren, starring comedians Felix Herngren and Johan Ulveson as they put together a sketch program. Charles is set to direct the pilot, which is said to be in the documentary style he perfected on another cable »

In many ways, "Community" Season 4 has been a multi-episode ode to the show's past. So it's fitting that the show's final confirmed episode would be a sequel to Season 3's "Remedial Chaos Theory." Yes, the Darkest Timeline is back. And it's not happy with reality.
At least there is a reality. Throughout most of this finale, "Advanced Introduction to Finality," I was more than a little concerned that "Community" had finally and suddenly given up on the idea of keeping this crazy show grounded in the real world. Thank goodness -- a "Community" un-moored by reality would rapidly fall apart.
And, quite frankly, the Darkest Timeline was never meant to be more than fantasy.

Exclusive: A hot comedy project is expected to hit the cable marketplace next week. I hear the untitled comedy has Billy Crystal attached to star, co-write and executive produce, Burn Notice creator Matt Nix co-writing/executive producing and Curb Your Enthusiasm and Borat‘s Larry Charles directing/co-writing and executive producing. Fox TV Studios, where Nix is under an overall deal, is producing. Details about the premise are sketchy but I hear the project is based on an European format and is described as an edgy comedy. Charles and Crystal are co-writing with comedy writer-producer Ben Wexler, who previously worked with Nix on Nix’s Fox dramedy The Good Guys. The four executive produce with Nix’s manager, producer Mikkel Bondesen and Henrik Bastin, both of Fabrik Entertainment (formerly Fuse), which also is under a deal at FtvS. Fabrik’s Kristen Campo co-exec produces. Bondesen and Fabrik have experience adapting European formats for the U. »

What I like about Colin Hanks playing a bad guy is the fact that he has such a mild-mannered baby face on him and with the exception of the wonderful Road to Perdition, even his father, Tom Hanks, made a career of playing good-natured everymen.
TV Line reported, Colin Hanks will appear on an arc for NCIS, which spans the current season’s final two episodes. These will air on May 7 and May 14 to close out the well liked CBS drama’s 10th season. Hanks will guest star as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons. NCIS executive producer Gary Glasberg describes him as “Ken Starr, J. Edgar Hoover and an angry pitbull wrapped into one. »

The actor will appear in this season’s final two episodes (May 7 and May 14) as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons, a character executive producer Gary Glasberg describes as “Ken Starr, J. Edgar Hoover and an angry pitbull wrapped into one.”
Glasberg adds that Hanks’ “should make it a truly memorable finale.”

In 2010, an odd movie called "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" opened. The movie, based on the books by Rick Riordan, satisfied fans and help to create a legion of followers for the young lead, Logan Lerman.
Since then, Lerman has made a name for himself in movies like "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," and now he has returned to the worlds of gods and their half-mortal offspring.
Earlier today, MTV News exclusively debuted the trailer for "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," and now we're breaking it down to the moments that got us most excited.
1) This is Douglas Smith as Tyson. As you probably noticed, he has some crazy hair!
2) Uh oh. We're having a "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" post-traumatic flashback.
3) Percy consults the Oracle, who looks a lot like the Crypt Keeper.
4) The good guys have to stop Kronos before he resurrects from this box.
5) To do »

This pumped up movie based on the Hasbro toy soldier line is dull, humourless and aggressive
It would be nice to report that this movie, based on the Hasbro toy soldier line, was amiably daft or engagingly silly. But actually it's dull and aggressive, steroidally humourless with a semi-coherent plot detour taking us among the ninjas of the misty/mystic Orient – all presumably to target Asian markets. There's also some pretty serious National Rifle Association porn effectively aimed at the same youngsters pestering their mums and dads for the action figures. British audiences may be disconcerted at the fact that our humble capital city suffers in the course of the action, though this doesn't in the end seem to disturb anyone much. The good guys unlock their weapon stash with the code 1-7-7-6, incidentally. (Could it be that gun-control limey Piers Morgan is making anti-Brit rhetoric fashionable?) Dwayne Johnson »

The conviction of newly released straight-to-video action movie fight-fest Maximum Conviction was never in doubt. The film is set in a prison, after all. But its maximumness? That’s raised a few questions. I’m in the question answering business, so I sat down to watch the film to see just how maximum it was. The answer is that it was surprisingly maximum. In fact, it was so maximum that I felt compelled to list the 10 most maximum things about it. Why 10? Because it’s the maximum the editors would allow me.

Far from the familiar tools we use every day, computers are the stuff of magic, if Hollywood's to be believed...
Computers. What began as gigantic, wayward things the size of a house have been tamed and shrunk, and now live cheerfully in our pockets as mobile phones, in our bags as tablets or laptops, and on our desktops as workstations and gatherers of breadcrumbs.
To almost every one of us, computers are about as mysterious and unfathomable as cucumbers. But cast a casual eye over Hollywood's output of the last few decades, and you might think that computers were a product of the dark arts. In movies, computers make weird noises, possess strange powers, harbour despotic fantasies, and when all else fails, explode into a million fragments.

"The Last Exorcism 2" hits theaters next Friday and if you're like us, you're probably thinking one thing: How can a movie called "The Last Exorcism" have a sequel? It's like the Hollywood equivalent of having 14 "Final Fantasy" games.
But the answer is simple: Exorcisms never really seem to work in movies. For over four decades, film fans have been going to the cineplex for one horror movie after another and the one thing you can pretty much always count on is the fact that when it comes time to try and exorcise a demon from a human host, that attempt will fail and fail miserably.
So with that in mind, we thought we'd take a look at the long and embarrassing history of failed exorcisms in film. And if you ever find yourself sharing space with a demonic interloper, well, you might as well just get used to it. »

In some alternate universe, Platinum Games' first dalliance with the "Metal Gear" universe would have been released alongside 2008's "Metal Gear Solid: Guns of the Patriots," the excesses of the former seemingly a direct response to the excesses of the latter. It would make for an exciting back to back experience, Raiden's hyper-kinetic swordplay of "Revengeance" (seen only fleetingly in "Guns of the Patriots") the focus here in a story concerned with the young and growing up angry (to a certain extent), while Solid Snake's swan song (at the time, at least) was about growing old(er), tinged with melancholy for a stealthy super-spy.
Still, while Kojima Productions has put their stamp of approval on "Metal Gear Rising Revengeance," cyborg assassin Raiden's solo game is its own peculiar thing, a frenetic hack and slash where the "Mgs" has long been deliberate; it's a badass rock star treatment of the franchise »
