The Killing returned for a fourth and final season on Netflix today with its greatest asset, its creepy-beautiful atmosphere, intact. Adapted from the superior Danish original by Veena Sud, this onetime AMC drama might feel like a classic if you projected it without sound on a large wall on the back room of a nightclub, where the show's voluptuously beautiful shots of misty mountains, rain-slicked streets, and characters traversing endless hallways could merge in the mind with a synthesized backbeat and whatever cocktails the place serves (probably something rain-themed). As is, The Killing has the same problems as always: a gravely solemn, we-are-reinventing-the-genre swagger that doesn't sync up with the stereotype-driven, sub-Special Victims Unit procedural you're actually watching; a fondness for red herrings and mistaken assumptions that make the two lead cops, Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), look like total dipsticks; pacing and emphasis problems »

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Netflix Streaming adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Here is a quick list of several that you might be interested in. Some of these were added halfway through or near the end of July, but we're going to include them in this roundup anyway since you may have missed them. Some of these may also have previously been on Netflix, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.The Killing (Season 4)Netflix's decision to pick up the final season of AMC's murder-mystery procedural was a head-scratcher. Season three was a miracle for fans, the product of post-cancellation resurrection. When AMC delivered a true death blow last year, The Killing was underwatched and critically divisive. And yet, here we are, six Netflix-exclusive episodes that put Linden (Mireille Enos »

Will six episodes be enough to repair one of TV's most complicated relationships? The Killing's resurrection is just days away, with all six episodes of the fourth and final season available to Netflix users on Friday, and we're seriously concerned over Holder and Linden's fractured partnership. The seriously intense trailer hinted at the divide between the partners, and now we've got exclusive intel from stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos and executive producer Veena Sud on the new season and the "complicated" relationship between Linden and Holder after the shocking events of the season-three finale... "There's this break of trust between them. They have to »
A little more than a year after its third season finale on AMC, Netflix will drop the entire six-episode final season of “The Killing” on Friday, Aug. 1.

Netflix swooped in and picked the drama up for a fourth and final season, giving Veena Sud and her team six episodes to wrap up the character arcs of Mireille Enos‘ Sarah Linden and Joel Kinnaman‘s Stephen Holder.

Ahead of the August 1st premiere of the fourth and final season of The Killing, Netflix has released a preview clip and two new posters from the series to accompany the previously released previously released trailer. The Seattle-based crime drama centers on homicide detectives Sarah Linden and Stephan Holder, played respectively by Mireille Enos (World War Z) and Joel Kinnaman (the RoboCop reboot).
The video picks up directly after the events of season 3’s finale. A panicked Linden hurriedly sheds her pants and trademark sweater before stepping into a shower and letting blood and mud wash from her body and down the drain. After scrubbing the bathroom with bleach and packing the incriminating articles in a Hefty bag, the beleaguered detective burns them in a trashcan.
And then Holder arrives and says: “We’ve just ...

NBC has enlisted two acclaimed actors to star in its provocative upcoming miniseries The Slap. Mary-Louise Parker and Peter Sarsgaard will headline the complex family drama about what happens after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. “The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it,” according to the show’s official description.

"For me the biggest and coolest challenge was that Leprechauns aren't something that people are generally frightened by," Lipovsky (pictured) tells us of the character and his idea for how the film should play out.
"We asked ourselves, can we do something that would be legitimately scary for people, and if so, what would that look like? Anything was on the table so that was really fun. It was fun to come on to the project and make it something that honors the mythology and is iconic and be totally fresh with our approach. We looked into making the origin story of a creature that maybe thousands of years ago the Celtics met in a cave or something that was really scary. »

A new trailer has been released for what may be the thriller's final season and it looks as if Linden and Holder have something to hide
The Killing is back for a fourth (and final) season on Netflix on 1 August (although given the remake's track record of being cancelled and revived, who can really be sure this six-episode run will be the end?). The first trailer suggests that it's Linden and Holder who have been doing the killing this time. Just got to keep our story straight, Linden. No one's going to find out. You got rid of the gun, right? growls Holder (Joel Kinnaman) to his long-suffering partner (Mireille Enos).

“The Killing” didn’t necessarily deserve an ending after its third-season cliffhanger, but the one-time AMC series — which went from sensation to scorned in near-record time — needed one. Recognizing a property with binge potential and name recognition, Netflix has obliged, punching up a six-episode final season that reunites the central characters and picks up pretty much where they left off — with baggage that spills over into, and largely eclipses, a new, fairly uninspired case. Despite flashes of what initially made the Danish adaptation so intriguing, this stretch drive can’t escape the feeling of a show ready to be put out of its misery.
The dense mood and mystery won the skein a rabid following, only to squander much of that goodwill when the first season didn’t wrap up the opening investigation. The second arc dragged, and a third — under a shared arrangement with Netflix — embarked on a new »

A film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger comes with a decently hefty amount of expectations, due to his filmography being completely full of films that helped establish his role as the guy who has blown more buildings up, delivered more one liners, and muscled his way through more bad guys than any other badass working today. When an actor gets that insanely huge amount of baggage, it’s hard for viewers to think of him as anything other than that, causing any testing of the waters to be less successful and well received. Thankfully though, Schwarzenegger is able to rise above that and give fans a very unexpected yet interesting performance in David Ayer’s gritty as hell film Sabotage.
Following a covert operation that ends with 10 million dollars of drug cartel money missing, DEA Agent Breacher (Schwarzenegger) and his hardcore team of undercover agents are put under investigation, with each member »

Casting on Sony’s adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming comic book series Powers is underway, with Deadline revealing that Susan Heyward (The Following) has secured the female lead of Detective Deena Pilgrim in the PlayStation Network series.
Also signing on is Max Fowler (The Killing) as Krispin Stockley, “the son of [Detective Christian Walker’s] murdered partner, a disaffected teen still struggling with the death of his father at the hand of a rogue Power which starts him on a dark journey that will warp him both physically and emotionally,” while Adam Godley (Breaking Bad) will play Captain Cross, “the solid steel in a frail frame captain of the Powers division, bookish, respectful and loyal but may harbor a secret agenda that could lead his beloved department into a full-fledged conspiracy.”

Fourteen years after debuting on the scene, the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming-created comic series Powers is making the jump to the small screen, being adapted exclusively for the Sony Playstation Network. So read on if you're a fan of the comics!
Deadline reports that David Slade will direct the first two episodes of the live-action series from scripts by Charlie Huston. Susan Heyward (pictured; "The Following") has been tapped as the female lead with Max Fowler ("The Killing") and Adam Godley ("Breaking Bad") also cast.
Combining the genres of superhero fantasy, crime noir, and police procedural, "Powers," produced by Sony Pictures TV, is set in a world full of people with superhuman abilities and where all of those powers are just another catalyst for mayhem and murder.

We've known that Brian Michael Bendis' Powers was coming to the PlayStation Network for a while, and now we finally have our first casting announcement. According to Deadline, Susan Heyward (The Following) will play Deena Pilgrim; who's described as "equal parts beauty and sarcasm, a wunderkind detective with edgy style". In the comics she partners up with Christian Walker -- who used to be a Power himself -- but no word on who'll be playing him yet. We do have a couple of supporting roles though: Adam Godley (Breaking Bad) will play Captain Cross, head of the Powers division of the police department, and Max Fowler (The Killing) will play the son of Walker’s deceased partner, who was murdered by a power. Bendis, Oeming and Michael Dinner will executive produce the show, with Huston and Remi Aubuchon (Falling Skies). »
The story is set in a world full of people with superhuman abilities (aka. Powers) and follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim (Heyward), who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities.
Also onboard are Max Fowler ("The Killing") and Adam Godley ("Breaking Bad"). Fowler plays the disaffected teen Krispin Stockley, the son of Walker’s previous partner who was murdered by a rogue Power. Godley is Captain Cross, head of the Powers division who may have his own agenda.

In case you were wondering, Mireille Enos is very proud of her pregnant body. Not only is she still doing press for The Killing on what appears to be the exact day she gives birth, but this soon-to-be-mom is wearing what has got to be the most baby bump hugging look we've ever seen. There is a band under the belly for added pop effect! The rest of the look is equally showy. We have a strapless top that highlights the World War Z star's baby-enhanced boobs and a color that would stand out regardless of that bump (and could it be a sign of what's inside?). But is the look flattering? We can't decide. On the one hand losing that below-the-belly band would make the gown flow much more »
