Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ended the first half of Season 2 with the dramatic reveal of Skye’s true 0-8-4 nature, when her inadvertent exposure to the obelisk’s Terrigen Mist set “Daisy” on a course to fulfill her destiny as an Inhuman.

“Who killed Lila?” didn’t exactly rise to the Laura Palmer (as in “Twin Peaks”) or Rosie Larsen (“The Killing”) level, but “How to Get Away With Murder” certainly milked the mystery for all it was worth. That said, the serialized plot that gave this ABC series its name was almost beside the point, as the program ginned up a fast-paced mix of procedural courtroom drama, as-far-as-broadcast-tv-can-go sex and old-fashioned star quality, thanks to Viola Davis’ ferocious attorney. Based on the two-hour finale, future enjoyment will likely require not sweating the how – or for that matter, who, what, when, where or why.
Initial skepticism about the durability of the concept pretty quickly melted away, as series creator Pete Nowalk juggled enough elements to keep audiences hooked. The question now based on the conclusion (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) is how long this latest Shonda Rhimes-produced hour »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Stanley Kubrick as director.
Kubrick’s interest in visual arts began with photography before he became interested in filmmaking. He enjoyed making short films and became very proficient at doing so. Eventually he made his first feature film The Killing Fields (1953) as an exercise in low-budget filmmaking. That film was not a commercial success, and he had to work hard to get funding to keep working as a filmmaker. His next film, Killer’s Kiss (1955) involved a lot of experimentation, so much that it ended up eating into the budget and costing Kubrick a profit. As a result, he decided to work with a professional crew on his next film, The Killing (1956), which also did not become commercially successful, »

I've learned that David Fincher has recast the lead in his HBO comedy project Living On Video. No one is commenting, but I hear the role will be played by 19-year-old Red Band Society star Charlie Rowe.

Even with the eclectic cast for what seems to be Warner Bros. bravest chapter in the DC Cinematic Universe, there was still a space in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad for the role of Rick Flagg, the leader of the popular team of anti-heroes that are set for the debut do-or-die mission next year.
Heading through some rather choppy waters for the past month or so with Tom Hardy originally in and then out of the role, before being briefly looked over by Jake Gyllenhaal, The Wrap reports that the studio have finally settled on someone to raise the Flagg – The Killing and Robocop star, Joel Kinnaman.
Though there’s no solid confirmation from the studio, the trade has revealed that things are pretty much set for Kinnaman to join the team which already has some impressive talent on board. Consisting of the high-calibre cast members like Focus stars Will Smith »

Fortitude, Season One, “Episode Three”
Written by Simon Donald
Directed by Sam Miller
Airs Thursdays at 10 pm (Et) on Pivot
Fortitude‘s nebulous two-part pilot promised mysteries on a cosmic scale; by offering sparse dialogue and dreamy imagery wreathed by the pristine whiteness magnanimous snow, creator Simon Donald and director Sam Miller seemed to be crafting a show more concerned with the ineffable than with cops and clues. Instead of establishing suspects and motive, excavating the nefarious underground ties that bind a small town, and strewing about red herrings, they suffused the frame with chilly melancholy. The serenity of a vast ice tundra is juxtaposed with the imminent dangers lurking above and below the permafrost. Fortitude has shades of The Killing‘s caustic theatrics and Donald’s Low Winter Sun, but none of the former’s genre-blind pretension. It’s serious not just in content but in form: any show »

Last month, we heard the unfortunate news that Tom Hardy had walked away from Suicide Squad. Scheduling conflicts were cited, but word on the street is that Hardy became part of the project without seeing a script, and once the project started moving along, he wasn't interested in where things were headed. When Hardy left, there were rumblings that Jake Gyllenhaal may take over the role, which would have been great. But instead, The Wrap reports we've been downgraded severely with RoboCop remake star Joel Kinnaman playing Rick Flagg, the leader of the group of supervillains hired for dangerous missions. Kinnaman isn't a terrible actor, but going from Tom Hardy to "The Killing" star just makes this comic book flick far less exciting, especially with bland actor Jai Courtney on board too. But at least Will Smith and Margot Robbie are still on board, and hopefully Jared Leto will give »

Breaking: Robocop star Joel Kinnaman has replaced Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad, which will be directed by David Ayer. Hardy dropped out of the DC Comics adaptation a couple of weeks ago due to scheduling conflicts with Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and duties on the Mad Max: Fury Road press tour.
Kinnaman is best known for his work in the Robocop remake from last year, but his body of work is vast with sensational work on other projects such as The Killing, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the Easy Money trilogy.
Kinnaman joins an impressive cast in Suicide Squad, with Will Smith appearing as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, and Jared Leto as the Joker.
Shooting kicks off soon for an August 5, 2016 release.

After what amounted to a bit of an extensive search over the past month, the trades are now reporting that Joel Kinnaman has replaced Tom Hardy in Suicide Squad. The RoboCop and The Killing star will play Rick Flag, the leader of the titular supervillain team working for Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller.
Hardy exited the highly-anticipated project last month due to scheduling conflicts with his next project, Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s The Revenant, as well as promotional obligations for Mad Max: Fury Road. After he vacated the role, rumors began to swirl that Jake Gyllenhaal, Jon Bernthal and Joel Edgerton were in contention.
Kinnaman may not be as big a star as someone like Hardy or Gyllenhaal, but I think he’s a great choice for Rick Flag. He displayed a tremendous amount of range in The Killing, and proved that he could handle a leading role in last year’s RoboCop. »
