Kingstone Media Offers More Biblical Epics for Noah Viewers to Explore

11 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Films based on the Holy Bible are as popular now as they were in the 1950s and 1960s when studios gave us epics like The Ten Commandments, Ben-Hur, The Greatest Story Ever Told, King of Kings, Samson and Delilah, and many others. Recently, Son of God made quite an impact in cinemas and there’s plenty more coming our way. Ridley Scott’s Exodus tells the tale of Christian Bale’s Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt. Nicolas Cage will help those seeking answers to the disappearances of loved ones and face the disastrous consequences of being Left Behind.

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah hits Blu-ray and DVD giving those who didn’t watch the movie in theaters an opportunity to see the latest Hollywood Biblical saga. Many might not know that it was actually based on a graphic novel Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel made with Canadian artist Niko Henrichon. »

It looks like Kirstie Alley’s sitcom comeback is going to be short-lived.

TV Land has canceled Kirstie after just one season, our sister site Deadline is reporting.

The sitcom — which co-starred fellow sitcom vets Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards — found Alley playing Maddie Banks, a Tony Award-winning actress whose life was turned upside down upon the discovery of her long-lost son Arlo (played by Eric Peterson).

Signs of trouble began when Kirstie‘s executive producer/creator/showrunner Marco Pennette exited the series following the »

James Franco and Jimmy Fallon Play Guess the Movie

28 July 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

While his brother Dave was cruising for Tinder meet-ups in a brown van with Conan, James Franco settled for a slightly more low-key talk-show activity, joining Jimmy Fallon in a game called Five-Second Summaries (a.k.a. Catchphrase with movie titles). And frankly, for someone who has been in a lot of movies, James Franco is pretty bad at guessing movie titles. He only barely got Pineapple Express, and he was in that one. »

San Diego Comic Con 2014: Top 5 Dark Horse Announcements

27 July 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dark Horse, the elder statesman of independent comics, continues to show no signs of slowing down during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Even though Marvel now holds the rights to Star Wars, its biggest licensed comics property, Dark Horse  struck back by announcing a several creator owned titles in different genres as well as an expansion to the Mignolaverse and a sequel to one of the most beloved novels of the past century. Dark Horse also won some Eisners in a wide variety of categories showing the company’s comics appeal to many types of readers from kids to people who wouldn’t normally read comics.

1. Hellboy and the Bprd Miniseries

Even though Batman has gotten most of the publicity, another comics character is celebrating a big anniversary. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Hellboy’s first appearance in the Seed of Destruction miniseries by Mike Mignola and scripted by John Byrne. »

The Real Man with Kaleidoscope Eyes

26 July 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Roger Corman sat down with Conan O’Brien last week for a spirited interview (promoting his latest Sy-Fy spectacular, Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda) turning in a charismatic performance that provoked a reaction not unlike Dennis Hopper’s besotted appraisal of Dean Stockwell’s spaced-out lounge lizard in Blue Velvet:

“Suave? Goddamn, you are one suave fucker”.

Suave? Yep, that’s Roger.

O’Brien’s wide-ranging conversation with Corman proved that this storied filmmaker is nothing if not a treasure trove of great Hollywood tales, mainly because Roger himself has instigated so many of them. Not the least being the time he decided to drop acid to better direct The Trip, his 1967 psychedelic-psychodrama starring Peter Fonda and, appropriately enough, Dennis Hopper.

As Roger hauled out the anecdote about his blissful LSD experience for Conan, I had a flashback of my own… to that weekend many moons ago when Tim Lucas, editor of Video Watchdog, »

Taye Diggs Wants To Play Marvel’s Luke Cage

25 July 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans have been wanting to see Luke Cage a.k.a. Power Man make his way to the Marvel cinematic universe for quite some time now, and will finally get their wish when the Marvel Netflix shows start arriving in 2015. Daredevil is first, followed by Jessica Jones and Iron Fist, but Luke Cage is getting his own series as well, and will be part of the TV team-up event The Defenders. 

We’ve heard several actors express their interest in playing Cage, from Idris Elba, Isaiah Mustafa, Dwayne Johnson, Terry Crews, and Mars Crain. Now, another has tossed his hat into the ring: The Best Man and Chicago alum Taye Diggs.

Diggs recently appeared on the Conan O’Brien Show, and said that he would like to play Cage if given the opportunity:

'Hercules' (2014) Movie Review

25 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Originality in any form is not something you're going to find in Brett Ratner's Hercules. Take any PG-13 sword and sandal film you've seen lately -- glossy and gritty, drenched in black blood -- and add touches of Gladiator and Braveheart and you have this supposed "new" tale of the son of Zeus, or, as the film tells us... like... the real Zeus. You know, the Greek God and stuffc You know the one... rightc Yeah, we get it! The easiest comparison is to say Ratner has "updated" Hercules in the same way Marcus Nispel updated Conan, though this film does seem better than that one if only because it's shorter. The Nispel comparison seems apt, though, if you consider the visual palette Ratner is working with and the overall blunt force numbness of the plot. Adapted from Radical Studios' graphic novel "Hercules: The Thracian Wars", Hercules finds our »

Taye Diggs Has Hopes To Play 'Luke Cage' In The Marvel Universe

25 July 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During last night’s Conan O'Brien Show, O' Brien brought on Taye Diggs (The Best Man and spouse of Idina Menzel), and the actor revealed which role  he hopes to play in the future. To start off, Conan asked Diggs if he would like to play a superhero. To no surprise, Diggs replied, "I would love to. That’s one of the things that I haven't gotten to do yet. Just to be able to do that, you know, when they're flying, and then they land, you know what I'm saying." O' Brien then asked if there was any particular superhero he wanted to play. Taye answered "Luke Cage. You ever heard of that? I've always liked that. Just you know, growing up a poor black boy, you gravitate to the black superheroes. And that's why I really loved Django Unchained. Growing up, you never got to see the black »

​What Does David Letterman's Retirement Mean for the Future of Late Night TV?

25 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As the Great Late-Night Realignment of 2014-15 continues, one thing is clear: The East Coast/West Coast beef lives on, if not in hip-hop, then on late-night television.

This week, CBS announced that, when Stephen Colbert takes over David Letterman's "Late Show" next year, he'll keep the show at Broadway's historic Ed Sullivan Theater. Actually, it wasn't just CBS who made the announcement; it was CBS, several New York state legislators, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. That's how big a deal it is that Colbert is not moving the "Late Show" to Los Angeles.

Not that there was much chance the show would move, though Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti made a game try at persuading CBS to move the show to what he called "the entertainment capital of the world" in a letter he wrote to the network in April, shortly after CBS announced Letterman's retirement... and »

Joel McHale: What the star of The Soup makes of British TV

25 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Community star and host of the Us answer to TV Burp performed for Barack Obama recently. But if he thought that was tough, now he has to sit through Last Of The Summer Wine

Joel McHale is still buzzing after the comedy gig of a lifetime. Earlier this year, he got the call from Barack Obamas office to do a turn at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner (previous performers: Jay Leno, Conan OBrien, Bob Hope). It was the most exhilarating and weirdest moment of my life, he says. It was like someone said, Hey, ever parachuted before? Nope. And then you just get pushed off a cliff.

McHale will be known to TV comedy aficionados as overbearing egotist Jeff Winger in Community, but the role that scored him the White House gig is his weekly stint as host of the E! channels live TV-recap show The Soup essentially a trendier, »

Best of Late Night TV: Dwayne Johnson's Fainting Spell and Morgan Freeman's Helium Balloon Voice (Video)

25 July 2014 12:03 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Morgan Freeman made an appearance on "The Tonight Show" to inhale some giant helium balloons with Jimmy Fallon, and in case you're wondering, yes, it was the most entertaining thing ever. And yes, he still managed to sound classy.

Also on "The Tonight Show " was everyone's favorite songstress, Kesha (no longer Ke$ha), who showed up to chat about the time she broke into Prince's house, checked out all his purple velvet, and found the man himself playing guitar in a beanie.

Dwayne Johnson (and his bulging biceps) stopped by "Conan" to chat about his starring role in "Hercules," and casually dropped the bombshell that he passed out while filming. »

Best of Late Night TV: Audra McDonald Sings Yahoo! Answers, Robin Wright Dances, Conan's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda' Cameo

24 July 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

An audience member asking to hear a professional singer perform queries from Yahoo! Answers inspired this bit on "The Tonight Show," where Tony winner Audra McDonald was joined by actor Josh Charles and host Jimmy Fallon to sing real questions and answers from the site. Some of the questions were fairly straightforward -- "How can I be the life of the party?" -- while others were...less than intelligent. (The person worrying about how to dislodge a swallowed ice cube may need to seek professional help.) Our fingers are crossed that this concept is added to Fallon's regular rotation of quirky recurring gags.

Best of Late Night TV: John Stamos' New 'Manny' Service, Dwayne Johnson's Thigh Workout, Ricky Gervais' Marriage Apathy (Video)

23 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

John Stamos was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to plug his movie "My Man Is a Loser." Obviously, Uncle Jesse is not a loser, but he plays a playboy in the movie. He told Jimmy Kimmel he believes in the institution of marriage (he was married once, to Rebecca Romijn), despite getting caught up in the idea of the whole bachelor life "so guys like you can live vicariously through me." John said he'd switch lives with Jimmy in a heartbeat, to have a beautiful wife and baby. "She'll go to you," Jimmy deadpanned of his wife, Molly.

10 Comics to Watch: Ron Funches’ Teddy-Bear Persona Anything but ‘Undateable’

22 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On stage, Ron Funches’ warm, teddy-bear persona and low-key, unhurried delivery and double entendres ensure that his deadpan R-rated zingers (check out his “Fuck Linda neck tattoo” and “Fat Pussy” bits) wouldn’t offend a church lady.

It’s an art he’s been honing for eight years since the Chicago native — whose appearances on “Conan” and “Chelsea Lately” are far removed from the days of being a “shy teenager” — relocated to Oregon and started working clubs in Portland.

“Originally I tried to be more high-energy, more aggressive, like a lot of black comedians I saw, but it just wasn’t me,” says Funches, 31, whose easygoing manner made him a natural fit as the “nerdy, shy space cadet” Shelley opposite fellow nerds Brent Morin and Rick Glassman on NBC’s “Undateable.”
