Gilmore Girls Revival: As-p Talks 'Single' Rory, F-Bomb Dropping Emily, Netflix Rollout Wish (Part 2)

A lot of attention has been paid to who may or may not be participating in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival. But series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino‘s still reeling from the loss of the one person who definitely won’t be back: the late Edward Hermann, who played patriarch Richard Gilmore during the show’s original seven-season run.

“Ed’s dying [in 2014] was so f—ed up,” laments the writer-director. “It was unexpected. He didn’t really let anyone know he was sick. He was a very proud dude. So none of us really got to say goodbye to him. It was very hard, »

Joel Kinnaman Joins House Of Cards in Season 4

2 February 2016 9:14 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We're a short month away from the return of the fan-favorite Netflix series House Of Cards, and while some fans may have been less than satisfied by the last season, there's no denying how sweetly addictive the series is.

Of course with a new season comes new characters, and joining the cast of House Of Cards is Joel Kinnaman. The Swedish actor isn't quite a household name yet, but many are likely to recognize his face from the series The Killing, as well as from the 2014 Robocop reboot. Most notably, Kinnaman will be playing Rick Flagg in the upcoming adaptation of Suicide Squad (he was the one naming off all the squad's abilities and defects in the most recent trailer).

Netflix has released the first official image of Kinnaman playing an unknown character. Take a look below!

As mentioned above, there is little known about what Kinnaman's »

2 February 2016 5:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

Suicide Squad’s Joel Kinnaman has been recruited for series four of House of Cards, in a role that has been unspecified.

Kinnaman has joined Neve Campbell and Colm Feore as new cast members in the political drama, as they enter their final series with writer Beau Willimon.

The Netflix Original has been a big hit since its debut in 2013, scoring ratings of 9/10 on IMDb, and 83% of RottenTomatoes, leading to Netflix ordering a fifth season to follow the next release in March.

We will rejoin Us President Frank Underwood, presumably without wife Claire by his side, in what is looking like being the most gripping series to date.

Gilmore Boss Eyes Melissa McCarthy for Revival Cameo: 'If She Has a Spare Moment, We'd Be Totally Game'

Sookie St. James, the ball’s in your court.

Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino wants Melissa McCarthy back for the show’s four-part Netflix revival, even if for just a quickie guest appearance. But given the actress’ jam-packed film schedule, she’s not holding out much hope.

Gilmore Girls: Amy Sherman-Palladino Reveals How the Improbable Netflix Revival Came to Be (Part 1)

1 February 2016 4:02 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Gilmore Girls: Seasons formally begins shooting in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and franchise creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is a teensy bit frazzled.

“These past couple of days have been crazy,” admits the auteur, who is writing and directing the four-part revival with husband Daniel Palladino. “We had our first table read on Friday. We have another table read today. And then we start directing [tomorrow].”

Luckily, As-p carved out 30 minutes in her bonkers schedule to answer all of my burning questions about the 360-minute continuation. And because I had a lot of burning questions, I’m parceling the Q&A out in installments, »

New poster for Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups featuring Christian Bale

27 January 2016 8:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new poster has arrived online for acclaimed director Terrence Malick’s upcoming film Knight of Cups featuring Christian Bale; take a look below…

See Also: The latest trailer for Knight of Cups

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, »

Derek’s Favorites of 2015

2 January 2016 2:24 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This past year has been one of the most memorable of my life for many reasons, one of them being the abundance of amazing entertainment in the horror genre. Thanks to great movies, books, podcasts, performances and more, I'll always look back at 2015 fondly.

Archie vs. Predator: Riverdale is one of the last places in comic books that you’d expect to find a character’s decapitated head stuffed into a vending machine, but anything goes in Dark Horse’s four-part Archie vs. Predator series. Author Alex De Campi expertly intertwines humor with horror in this limited series about a teenaged Predator looking to add Archie and the gang to its kill list, making for one of my most enjoyable paneled-paged reading experiences of the year. A must-read for longtime fans of both the Archie and Predator franchises, this blood-splashed story is funny, fierce, and surprisingly heartfelt.
