Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, the network released its 15-second spot for the series with a screaming child and a group of religious figures huddled in a dark tunnel.
“You have seen things you are not supposed to see,” a weary voice warns in the video.
The teaser cuts quickly to star Jason Isaacs making his way through a dark corridor and an overview of a crowded street in Jerusalem.

It seems hard to believe that there was once a very dark time in the early noughties, when superhero and comic book adaptations were few and far between. However, we have now come through the light at the end of the tunnel, and viewers have seen a huge influx of superhero-related projects on the big and small screen. OFf course, it goes without saying that Marvel Studios has been an invaluable influence in terms of the genre’s new popularity, with Iron Man and The Avengers helping to reinvigorate audience interest. However, it should not be forgotten that DC Comics have also done their part with Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, as well as televisions Smallville, Arrow and The Flash. As a result, the next few years will bare witness to another large surge in superhero adaptations, such as Warner Bros. and CBS’ upcoming Supergirl.

"Now, Nicole Kidman,” Werner Herzog said last summer about her lead performance in his upcoming "Queen Of The Desert." “Wait for that one. Wait for it. I make an ominous prediction: How good she is.” And well, we shall soon see. The filmmaker's anticipated drama is just a week or so away from being unveiled at the Berlin International Film Festival and the first clip has arrived. Featuring a pretty nice ensemble which includes the omnipresent James Franco, Robert Pattinson, and “Homeland” star Damian Lewis, the true-story film chronicles the life of Gertrude Bell, a British explorer, traveler, archaeologist and political officer. But as you'll see in this clip, romance is not part of the equation of her mission in the Middle Eastern desert, no matter how strong the pangs of passion. Watch below. Is this the Kidman performance we've been waiting for? Hit the comments section. »

To be frank, I actually didn't expect her to win in her category. I really didn't. Not because I don't think she's deserving (she's Viola Davis, and she's an Actor!), but I thought her category (Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series) was the toughest, with impressive competition, most of them previously nominated and/or won in this category in past years: Claire Danes ("Homeland"), Julianmna Margulies ("The Good Wife"), Tatiana Maslany ("Orphan Black"), Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey"), and Robin Wright ("House of Cards"). So I wasn't expecting a first-timer in that category to actually win it. But she did! So »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!
Last night, the 2015 SAG Awards, which aired on both TBS and TNT, honored a lot of newer series. Shows like Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, and How to Get Away With Murder beat out longer-running series like Modern Family, Homeland, and Game of Thrones for many of the night’s top acting prizes, and somewhat shockingly, Matthew McConaughey, who many (including myself) had originally predicted would sweep any and all acting categories with his performance in HBO’s True Detective, came up empty again last night. Here’s the full list of winners (for both TV and film) from the 2015 SAG Awards (the winners’ names are bolded): Drama Ensemble Boardwalk Empire Downton Abbey Game of Thrones Homeland House of Cards Drama Actress Claire Danes, Homeland Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey Robin Wright, »

Doc reminds viewers of the insidious power of L. Ron Hubbard’s church that has long focused on Hollywood
“Going Clear,” the much-anticipated documentary about Scientology by veteran filmmaker Alex Gibney, caused a ruckus at Sundance on Sunday, resurfacing the most damaging accusations against the religion including a campaign to break up Tom Cruise’s marriage to Nicole Kidman.
Since the defection from the church in recent years by prominent members like Paul Haggis and investigative work including the book by Lawrence Wright on which the film is based, the worst of Scientology is already out there.

There’s no doubt in our minds — that was the best speech of the night!
The second-time winner took the stage in a gorgeous white gown, and spoke of how her 4-year-old daughter, Genesis, asks for bedtime stories – but that she always includes one special request: “Mommy, can you put me in the story?”
Davis said, “It starts from the top up,” and thanked Htgawm's executive producer Shonda Rhimes and creator Pete Nowalk. "Thank you… for thinking that a sexualized, messy, mysterious woman, could be a 49-year-old dark-skinned African-American woman who looks like me."
With tears in her eyes, the star continued, "Thank you to all the people who love me, exactly how God made me."

How to get away with the perfect acceptance speech. In a category so filled with talent that an additional nominee was added, How to Get Away With Murder's Viola Davis took home the Actor for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series at the 2015 SAG Awards on Sunday, beating House of Cards' Robin Wright, Downton Abbey's Maggie Smith, Homeland's Claire Danes, The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies, and Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany. And, per usual, Davis delivered an inspiring and rousing acceptance speech that would make her fierce Htgawm character Annalise Keating proud. "All right, when I tell my daughter stories at night, invariably a few things happen. »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
