You might not know the name Gregory Tripi, but you've likely heard his work. He's provided additional music on projects such as "The Knick" and "Contagion," and was the soundtrack producer on Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive." But he's also worked as a composer in his own right and steps into his most high profile gig yet in that capacity with "Dark Places." And today we have two samples of his compositions from the upcoming thriller. Charlize Theron, Corey Stoll, Tye Sheridan, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, Sterling Jerins and Christina Hendricks starring in an adaptation of the best-seller by "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn that follows Libby Day (Theron), who witnesses her family get murdered as a youngster and testifies against her brother when he is tried for the crime. 25 years later, Libby is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club who want »

AMC has released the first photos for “Into the Badlands,” its upcoming saga that stars Daniel Wu as a well-trained warrior who embarks on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Accompanying him on his journey is a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight).
“Into the Badlands” was created by writer-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “Smallville”) and is based on the classic Chinese story “Journey to the West.” It stands as another example of TV’s martial arts-focused drama trend.
“I think there’s a great variety of martial arts that you can call on,” Gough told Variety last year, adding, “Oftentimes, it’s a fight that comes down to two characters, and television has an intimacy that really lends itself to that.”
The six-episode series bows later this year. It is currently filming in New Orleans. Gough and Miller serve as executive producers »

The outbreak drama from writer-creator Graham Moore (the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind The Imitation Game) and director Marc Forster, formerly known as Patient Zero, has been given a full order at NBC. Per Deadline, series will run for 10 episodes, with Forster slated to direct most if not all of them and Moore set as lead writer for the entire series. Details are vague but the general focus of the series is on a deadly virus that infects a young woman and has the possibility of decimating populations all around the globe if not contained and cured correctly. That plot will interweave with an FBI agent's hunt for terrorist in international territories, the stress and horror of which pushes him to the edge of madness. [caption id="attachment_111662" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] The "deadly outbreak" storyline is a perennial thriller premise and it's one that could work very well on the small screen. »

The upfronts have ceased! They are no more! This morning, The CW finished up the annual ballyhoo and announced their three premiering series for the 2015-2016 fall season, including the highly anticipated Legends of Tomorrow, continuing the channel's newfound reputation as the home for DC Comics characters; you can find the trailer for Legends of Tomorrow and Allison's write-up here. As much as a certain contingency of the television-viewing public would wish it so, however, television cannot only be about costumed white dudes saving the world. So, in addition to Legends of Tomorrow, The CW has also dropped the trailers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a new comedy series, and Containment, a new thriller-drama centered on the international outbreak of an unknown contagion. It's probably too much to ask that it's exactly like Steven Soderbergh's Contagion though, right? Gadnabbit. It's interesting to note that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has a similarly ambitious, bold tone to its comedy, »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

The December release of the U.S. Senate Select Intelligence Committee's so-called "torture report" shocked the nation with the gruesome accounts of extreme interrogation tactics employed by the CIA in the war on terror. HBO Films is examining the origins of the brutal tactics with Rorschach And Awe, a movie in development, which will be written and directed by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum). Based on the 2007 Vanity Fair article of the same name by… »
Marion Cotillard doesn't do blockbusters very often. She's done a couple with Christopher Nolan ("The Dark Knight Rises," "Inception") and Steven Soderbergh ("Contagion"), and had a bit of fun popping up briefly in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," but for the most part she doesn't step into big expensive pieces of entertainment, unless she has a good reason. And she seems to have found them for "Assassin's Creed." The actress will re-team with her "Macbeth" co-star Michael Fassbender and director Justin Kurzel for the video game adaptation — one of many that are on the way — that follows Desmond Miles, a bartender kidnapped by a corporation and forced to use a machine called the Animus, which allows him to relive the memories of his ancestor Altair, who was an Assassin in the Middle East during the Crusades. No word yet on Cotillard's role, but of course, if the movie is a »

Magic Mike Xxl is not directed by Steven Soderbergh, who has retired from feature filmmaking. But what’s in a name? Magic Mike Xxl is directed by Gregory Jacobs, Soderbergh’s regular 1st Ad since 1993’s King of the Hill, is crewed by Soderbergh regulars (production designer Howard Cummings and set director Eric R. Johnson have been onhand since Contagion), and was shot and edited by the man himself. The trailer’s color palette — muted and dark, with strong golds and shadows — is accordingly exactly what you’d get from a Soderbergh film, and it even opens with the same ’70s WB Saul Bass-designed logo that […] »

Directed by: Ang Lee
Ang Lee has gone in about eight different directions in terms of genre. His resume includes “The Ice Storm,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Hulk,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi,” and this delightful Jane Austen adaptation, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and young Kate Winslet. “Sense and Sensibility” took home the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for the story of the Dashwood family, a mother widowed and left in difficult circumstances after her husband has left his fortune to his first wife, instead of his current one. So Mrs. Dashwood (Gemma Jones) and her daughters Fanny, Marianne, and Elinor (Harriet Walter, Winslet, Thompson) have to find a way to survive in a world ruled by men and the rules that seem to create obstacle after obstacle for them. Unfortunately, given the era, they are viewed as “unmarryable,” since they have no fortune and no prospects. »
