The opening episode of the the arctic circle drama, which cost around £25m to make, and will air on Sky Atlantic in January, is relentlessly unsettling and claustrophobic, a blizzard (literally) of intrigue, infidelity, corruption and murder. David Simon, creator of the The Wire, once said: “Fuck the average viewer.” Fortitude is likely to leave lacklustre subscribers behind. When Tucci’s Met police detective turns up an hour or so in (“You’re American?” “Yes.”) it’s a shaft of light in the darkness. Fortitude’s population is 713, but there aren’t many of them that »

We haven't seen anything from Sony Playstation Network's Powers since the trailer debuted at New York Comic-Con back in October. Today, we have seven photos from the upcoming series, which offer our first look at Michelle Forbes (The Killing) as Retro Girl. We also get new images featuring Sharlto Copley as Christian Walker, Susan Heyward as his partner in the Powers police division, Deena Pilgrim, Eddie Izzard as Wolfe, Noah Taylor as Johnny Royalle and Olesya Rulin as Calista.

The story is set in a world where a group of humans are blessed with super powers. Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward play cops operating within a special police division dubbed Powers implemented to investigate crimes committed by these gifted individuals.

This sure isn't the Michelle Forbes you remember from AMC's drippy drama The Killing. This is the 49-year-old Forbes (Star Trek: Tng, Battlestar Galactica) decked out in red leather and ready for action in her role as fan-favorite Retro Girl in PlayStation's first original scripted series Powers. Retro Girl has a "cool, hard exterior with a fire right below the surface. Retro Girl is the undisputed super star of the Powers community. An icon of justice, selflessness, and business acumen. Her willingness to put herself at risk for the good of others is matched only by her ability to manage her globe-spanning personal brand. »

The Captive, 2014.
Co-written and Directed by Atom Egoyan.
With the help of a pair of ambitious detectives, a married couple goes on a tireless mission to find out the truth behind their daughter’s disappearance eight years prior.
The abduction thriller that is The Captive delivers an unrelenting tone along with some standout authentic and eerie performances. Its creepiest moments go hand in hand with its most entertaining.
When we first meet landscaper Matthew (Ryan Reynolds), he is making his way down the snow-filled roads of frozen Ontario. When he stops to pick up a girl in need of a ride, it seems as though the film may be introducing the audience to its abductor. This turns out not to be the case (undoubtedly a benefit to both the audience and »

Patti Smith has always been a renaissance woman. She’s been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for her work as a singer-songwriter and frontwoman of the Patti Smith Group; named a commander of the French Ordre des Artes et des Lettres for work as a poet; and awarded the National Book Award for her 2010 memoir, “Just Kids.” And 2014 may have been the year Patti Smith finally went Hollywood.
In her own small, measured way, that is. This past year saw the 67-year-old songstress contribute a tune to Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” which is up for consideration in the Oscar original song category, as well as act in Netflix’s “The Killing.” Last year, she wrote and performed an original song for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
“It’s entirely a happy convergence,” she insists.
She’s certainly earned the cultural capital to experiment with new roles, »

“She’s actually in Episode 12, titled ‘Uprising,'” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg shared at the screening of the Flash/Arrow crossover episodes (airing Dec. 2 and 3). “She plays a pivotal part in the investigation into Sara’s death.”
“I just watched the dailies the other day, and it was really great to see her back,” Kreisberg added, “because she such an important part of Season 2.”
Hailed for her turn as Bullet during Season 3 of The Killing, »
When Sin was first introduced in Arrow, it was as a close ally of Sara Lance, a.k.a. The Canary. She had a recurring role throughout season two, but has been absent for quite some time now, and we've heard nothing of her since Sara was taken out by an unknown foe. However, TV Line have confirmed that Bex Taylor-Klaus is indeed set to return to The CW series after the show's upcoming winter break. "She’s actually in Episode 12, titled ‘Uprising,'" showrunner Andrew Kreisberg revealed in a recent interview with the site. "She plays a pivotal part in the investigation into Sara’s death. I just watched the dailies the other day, and it was really great to see her back." Taylor-Klaus recevied a lot of praise for her role in The Killing and recently took on a leading role in MTV's upcoming Scream adaptation. Some fans »
Sony Pictures has hired Brad Anderson to direct a new action thriller called Shadow Run. I’m a big fan of Anderson’s past work, which includes The Machinist, Session 9, and Transsiberian. The guy is a talented filmmaker who is good with the characters and stories he tells. He has also worked on TV series such as The Wire, Fringe, Boardwalk Empire, and The Killing.
Shadow Run comes from a spec script by Joe Gazzam. The story begins when "a viral attack puts lives in danger, forcing a CIA agent to enact a secret prisoner exchange: Russia’s most notorious spy for the American scientist who can create a cure.”
Anderson recently helmed The Call, which starred Halle Berry, as well as last month’s Stonehearst Asylum, starring Kate Beckinsale. I’m looking forward to seeing how this new project of his pans out. I think Marvel needs to »

They quickly come to blows over the splitting of the winnings, with deadly results.

The story follows four men with dangerous pasts who all win big in a sports betting pool, although lethal complications arise when it comes time to split up the winnings. Magnus Martens directed the original film, which starred Kyrre Hellum, Henrik Mestad, Marie Blokhus and Mads Ousdal.
Dave Callaham (Godzilla, The Expendables 3) has signed on to write the screenplay, with Will Gluck (Annie) attached to produce through his Olive Bridge company. It isn't known when production may begin.
Patty Jenkins made her directorial debut with the 2004 drama Monster, which earned Charlize Theron an Oscar for Best Actress. She was, at one point, attached to direct Thor: The Dark World for Marvel before parting ways due to creative differences. She has since »
The project emerged first as a spec script by Joe Gazzam, which became the object of a financial tug of war between studios last February. Michael De Luca and Andrea Giannetti have been tasked with handling the film for Sony, and they’ll work alongside producers Neal H. Moritz and Hernany Perla.
Plot details are scarce at the moment, but Anderson’s involvement indicates that the script impressed the well-respected director. His past projects include Halle Berry thriller The Call, star-studded period mystery-thriller Stonehearst Asylum and episodes of acclaimed series like The Killing, Boardwalk Empire, Fringe, The Wire and Treme.
No casting has yet been announced, though Sony will likely be searching for a bankable, already established action star who can carry the pic. »

It appears that Monster director Patty Jenkins is now close to making her second feature film in over a decade. The talented filmmaker was previously attached to helm Thor: The Dark World but subsequently dropped out over creative differences with Marvel. Her other credits include directing the pilot for AMC’s The Killing as well as episodes of Entourage and Arrested Development, but now THR reports that she’s turning her attention to the action-comedy genre with a remake of the 2011 Norwegian film Jackpot. Based on a story by crime author Jo Nesbo (Headhunters and The Snowman), the film revolves around four men who win big in a sports pool, only to resort to lethal measures when dividing the winnings proves difficult. The Expendables and Doom scribe David Callaham penned the screenplay, and Will Gluck (Easy A) is producing. It’s been too long since Jenkins brought her talents to the feature film world, »
