'Blunt Talk' Trailer Starring Patrick Stewart

27 March 2015 2:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Starz Original series Blunt Talk released a first look teaser of the 10-episode first season of the half-hour scripted comedy series from Mrc and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Ames (creator and showrunner), Stephanie Davis and Tristram Shapeero. The teaser will premiere on-air during the Black Sails finale on Saturday, March 28 at 9 Pm Et/Pt. Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. The series will premiere on Starz in the summer of 2015.

Through the platform of his nightly cable news show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt's only support »

Watch: Patrick Stewart Goes Wild In New 'Blunt Talk' Teaser

27 March 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Starz Orders Two Seasons of Jonathan Ames' First Show Since 'Bored to Death,' Co-Produced by Seth MacFarlane "Blunt Talk," a comedy created for Starz by Jonathan Ames ("Bored to Death") and executive produced by Seth McFarlane ("Family Guy," "Ted"), debuted another teaser trailer today. The show, which is the premium cable network's second half-hour comedy, was picked up last year for a two-season commitment of 20 episodes.  Patrick Stewart headlines as Walter Blunt, a British television personality who moves to Los Angeles in order to start a talk show on American cable news, advising viewers on how to properly behave. Complicating matters is Blunt's off-screen decision-making, which doesn't quite live up to the standards of his own show. Stewart stars alongside Jacki Weaver, Dolly Wells and Timm Sharp. "Blunt Talk" premieres in Summer 2015.  Read More: Watch: Patrick Stewart's New Starz »

Pretty Little Liars season 5 episode 25 review: Welcome To The Dollhouse

26 March 2015 7:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Pretty Little Liars' season 5 finale went a long way to fixing what's been wrong with the show of late, and in a really exciting way...

This review contains spoilers.

5.25 Welcome To The Dollhouse

It was a gradual process, turning away from Pretty Little Liars. It wasn’t with one episode or one storyline (though the Ezra-is-a debacle almost qualified) that forced me to take a step back from the mystery, the characters and the series in general, but rather a frustration with how convoluted it had become – hard to theorise about and near-impossible to come up with any sort of coherent answer.

Maybe it’s my own residual Ptsd from Lost, or maybe it was an actual problem the show had to solve. Either way, this episode went a long way to fixing what I perceived to have broken about the show, and it did so in the most exciting, »

Sam Jones aka Flash Gordon confirms Ted 3

25 March 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ted 2 won't be released until the summer, but it looks like the ball is already rolling on the third instalment of the comedy series.

Sam Jones, aka Flash Gordon, who made a cameo in the original Seth MacFarlane film and returns for the second, spilled the beans when he revealed that he "just signed on" for the third film.

Speaking to Comicbook.com, Jones said: "Ted 2 comes out June 26. I just signed on for Ted 3.

"We're moving onwards and upwards, it's wonderful. It's a great adventure at this time in my life," he added.

Jones wasn't able to divulge more information on the film, saying: "We haven't filmed Ted 3 yet."

Ted 2 sees the MacFarlane-voiced stuffed bear having to prove to a court of law that he is human in order to maintain custody of his newborn child.

Mark Wahlberg is back as Ted's hapless friend John Bennett, »

Wait, Ted 3 Is Happening? Here's The Latest

25 March 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Seth MacFarlane's Ted franchise looks like it's ready to take off, especially after the recent copyright infringement lawsuit against the production was dismissed. While Ted 2 is scheduled to take a bow on June 26th, the bear looks like he might have at least one more round of fun to bestow upon the world. At least, that's if the remarks from Flash Gordon himself, Sam Jones, carry any weight. While discussing an upcoming documentary on his life, Jones told ComicBook.com that in addition to the upcoming Ted 2 being on his plate, he's supposedly already signed on for Ted 3. Yes, you heard the man right, there's allegedly another Ted film in the works, even though the second film hasn't had the chance to drop in theaters nationwide. This isn't an alien concept. Studios often start planning a sequel before a new film has even been released. However, nothing's set in stone. »

Seth McFarlane's Ted Lawsuit Dismissed, Get The Details

24 March 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It appears that Seth McFarlane has been vindicated in the eyes of a court after the dismissal of a lawsuit against him alleging that his 2012 comedic vulgar taking teddy bear film, Ted was too similar to a series of video sketches focusing on a character called "Charlie The Abusive Teddy Bear." A Los Angeles federal judge was satisfied with proof that the film.s titular teddy bear was inspired through a creative process independent of the "Charlie" videos. It.s certainly a huge relief for McFarlane as Ted 2 readies an imminent summer release. News of the lawsuit dismissal is being widely reported, but as a report from The Wrap points out from court papers filed in a California U.S. District Court, Plaintiff and its counsel are now satisfied that, based on discovery produced in the action, the character Ted was independently created by Seth MacFarlane using his own »

Seth MacFarlane and Universal win copyright lawsuit over Ted

23 March 2015 11:31 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A copyright lawsuit against Ted creator Seth MacFarlane has been dismissed.

Yesterday (March 23), a federal judge in Los Angeles ruled that MacFarlane did not copy an animated bear called Charlie owned by Bengal Mangle Productions.

The company claimed that Ted was substantially similar to Charlie in his attitude and persona, as well as spending a lot of time sitting on a living room couch with a beer and/or cigarette in hand.

However, court papers state: "Plaintiff and its counsel are now satisfied that, based on discovery produced in the action, the character Ted was independently created by Seth MacFarlane using his own efforts and creativity and was not copied from Plaintiff's Charlie character."

Ted producer Media Rights Capital reacted in a statement, saying: "This lawsuit was without merit and has been dismissed.

"The plaintiff has conceded that the Ted character was independently created by Seth MacFarlane using his own efforts and creativity. »

Feel free to crack open a beer in celebration, Ted. (Or maybe just pop open a cold one because it’s Monday.) Seth MacFarlane has come out on top in a copyright lawsuit over “Ted,” his 2012 big-screen comedy about a vulgar, suds-sucking bear, with a federal judge in Los Angeles dismissing the case on Monday. MacFarlane, his production company Fuzzy Door Productions, Media Rights Capital, Universal Pictures and others were sued in July by Bengal Mangle Productions, which claimed that the Ted character was derived from its character Charlie, “a teddy bear who lives in a human, adult world with all human. »

"Flash Gordon" Reboot To Be A Sequel?

13 March 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A year ago came word that 20th Century Fox had picked up the screen rights to pulp comic-strip "Flash Gordon" and was developing a cinematic reboot of the property with former "Star Trek 3" scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay attached as writers from a story treatment by George Nolfi ("The Bourne Ultimatum").

"Flash Gordon" dates back to 1934, when it was created by famed comic strip artist Alex Raymond, and for decades after the character appeared in movie serials, animated fare, TV shows and a 1980 feature helmed by Mike Hodges.

In a new interview with the actor who played the character in said 1980 feature, Sam J. Jones, Den of Geek scored a surprising reveal. Turns out this may not be a reboot so much as a sequel to that ultra camp classic.

Asked if there were originally plans for a sequel to the 1980 film back when it was made, »

16 Things You Didn’t Know About Mila Kunis

13 March 2015 3:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Mila Kunis certainly isn’t your average Hollywood mega-star. She has quite literally flown from rags to riches, from her humble beginnings in a conflicted Ukraine, to the glitzy world of showbiz.

The 31-year-old’s reputation has blossomed globally after graduating from roles on TV to films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Black Swan and Ted, and she’s now firmly on the A-list.

Her last big screen appearance of course came with the unfortunately not universally loved Jupiter Ascending, alongside Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne, and she’ll soon be voicing the part of Deema in R-rated stop-motion comedy, Hell & Back, with Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk playing the Devil.

The good news for that film is that it is in these lesser-known projects that Kunis really shines and for all she enjoys the La lifestyle, she’s at her finest when she draws on her own »

Recap of 'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5 Episode 23: The Melody Lingers On

10 March 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are only two episodes left before A's identity is finally revealed on "Pretty Little Liars," and the internet is breaking. Mostly due to the fact that Aria Montgomery's no longer dating her former stalker (judging you forever, Ezra Fitz), but also because Hanna Marin is currently trapped in a jail cell. This week, the liars join forces to spring Hanna from the slammer, and they come across a few new clues along the way....

(Note the use of mysterious ellipses for extra dramatic effect...)

Alison Goes To Trial, Hanna Pretends She Knows How To Fold Laundry

Alison's trial is upon us, and the prosecution has a theory: Alison lied about being kidnapped and then killed Mona Vanderwaal to keep her secret hush-hush. Uhm, last time we checked only the liars knew the truth about Ali's kidnapping, which means there's an informant among us. Trust no one.

Anyway, now that »

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

No, there's not a real-life sentient talking teddy bear out there making dirty jokes and obscene gestures, but an Egyptian photographer named Hossam Atef has shared his otherwise equivalent to the title character from the Seth MacFarlane movie Ted. That would make Atef the real-life John Bennett -- Mark Wahlberg's role opposite the MacFarlane-voiced bear, both of whom return this summer in the sequel Ted 2. In images Atef posted to Behance, he and his much-larger teddy can be seen sharing a non-romantic Valentine's Day date as best buds. Although the photo spread is titled "Tedd," there doesn't seem to be any indication that it's inspired by the movie. Atef introduces the pics by promoting being alone and treating yourself.
