Is Supergirl the Earliest Pilot Leak Ever?

7 hours ago | | See recent news »

Faster than a speeding bullet, the pilot for CBS’ Supergirl has illegally leaked onto file-sharing sites.

VideosCBS’ Supergirl Trailer Debuts

CBS ordered the buzzy superhero drama to series barely two weeks ago, and only unveiled the first footage last Wednesday, May 13, during its annual Upfront presentation to advertisers.

The leaking of pilots for an upcoming TV season is nothing new, though Supergirl‘s super-fast pirating would seem to set a land-speed record for a high-profile project. Last summer, for example, the pilots for The Flash and Constantine — also comics book-based fare appealing to a certain crafty, passionate crowd — didn’t »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Car Chases

7 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 2 of 10: A good car chase works for completely different reasons than its bipedal counterpart. Where a foot chase is more intimate, desperate, and rough, car chases are cool, exciting, almost romantic. Here the journey overwhelms destination: tough guys (and girls) driving sleek machines at impossible speeds. And unlike foot chases, there are no real limitations on where they can go or what they can do—sometimes cars can even fly.

Time Machine: Pre-Incredible Hulk Ruffalo and Wife Looking Stylish Together on Red Carpet

Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney on the Red Carpet Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney Oscars photo Mark Ruffalo and wife Sunrise Coigney arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre at (almost) the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in downtown Hollywood. Ruffalo was a 2011 Best Supporting Actor nominee for his role as a chauvinistic male slob who disrupts the family life of a lesbian couple in Lisa Cholodenko's Best Picture contender The Kids Are All Right. The dramatic comedy co-stars Best Actress nominee Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Josh Hutcherson, and Mia Wasikowska. This was Ruffalo's first Academy Award nomination. As it turned out, The Kids Are All Right didn't win a single statuette on Sunday night. But at the 2011 Spirit Awards held the day before, Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg's screenplay was chosen as the best of the year among independent films. »

Supergirl lands full series order at CBS

6 May 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s… super good news! Ahead of the upfronts next week, CBS has officially granted a full series order to Supergirl.

The series – developed by Arrow and The Flash producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg along with Chuck alum Ali Adler – was given a series commitment last fall, and has picked up quite a bit of buzz ever since. Where it will wind up on CBS’ schedule hasn’t been announced, and likely won’t be until the aforementioned upfronts next week, when the network unveils all of its plans for the upcoming fall television season.

Despite sharing a creative team with the CW DC shows, Supergirl is expected to stand independently from The Flash and Arrow - though I guess crossovers are never out of the question in today’s superhero-driven climate. The show stars Glee‘s Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, »

CBS Grants Supergirl A Series Order

6 May 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In what amounts to a news story we all saw coming, CBS has officially given Supergirl a series order. The show – developed and written by Arrow and The Flash showrunners Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with Chuck and No Ordinary Family alum Ali Adler – went into development last fall and was given a series commitment shortly thereafter.

The show stars Glee alum Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, who escaped Krypton’s destruction and has been in hiding on Earth and keeping her powers a secret ever since. The series will pick up when Kara is 24 years old and ready to “embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.” Her famous cousin, Superman, is expected to show up in a small capacity, but the Supergirl will mainly focus on Kara’s solo adventures and coming-of-age journey into heroism.

Joining Benoist are True Blood‘s Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, »

But her rep tells Us Weekly that the two were just having a business breakfast meeting and have simply remained amicable since their breakup. McPhee and Cokas' relationship fell apart after [...] »

Smash Is Ready for Its Close-Up—Again—and So Is Megan Hilty

22 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Forget Full House and Twin Peaks, we're ready for a Smash revival, and so is Megan Hilty. "If it were up to me [Laughs.], it would be on again," Hilty told us of a Smash revival. "Even with me not on it. I just think there's something really special about the concept of that show. I would hope so, but who knows." The canceled NBC musical drama about the making of a Broadway show ran for just two seasons and generated a ton of headlines—both favorable reviews heralding the show before it started based on an outstanding pilot and not-so great stories about the drama behind the scenes and uneven storylines—and starred Hilty as Broadway actress Ivy Lynn opposite Katharine McPhee as »

The Last Five Years Review

16 April 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Richard Lagravenese

Cast: Anna Kendrick, Jeremy Jordan

Certificate: 12A

Running time: 94 minutes

Synopsis: A struggling actress and her novelist lover each illustrate the struggle and deconstruction of their love affair.

There are two sides to every story, especially those involving the heart, but shall we begin at the beginning or at the end? The Last Five Years will give you both; but in doing so might muddle you into distraction.

Jamie Wellerstein (Jeremy Jordan) and Cathy Hiatt (Anna Kendrick) are an up-and-coming novelist (him) and struggling actress (her) whose five year relationship has had its’ ups and downs. Almost entirely through song, their highs and lows are presented to us in a non-linear arc. Cathy starts her story from the end of the relationship, focusing on the demise and the events leading to it whilst Jamie is more focused on the happier times; their early days as a couple. »

Welcome to my live-blog for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, the year's only kudosfest likely to make me perpetually check for the correct spelling of "Ansel Elgort." Sunday's (April 12) show is being hosted by Amy Schumer and offers the intrigue of Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne going against Zoe Saldana for Best On-Screen Transformation, but then makes you wonder how if Eddie Redmayne was eligible for stuff, he isn't up for Best Male Performance. And who doesn't like an award show pitting "Guardians of the Galaxy" against "Boyhood" against "Selma" for Movie of the Year? Ladies and Gentlemen... The MTV Movie Awards! 7:57 p.m. Et.

The Good Wife Recap: Caught in a Trap

“Oh, we are all in trouble now.”

That very rare letting-down-of-the-guard from The Good Wife‘s Eli Gold refers, of course, to this week’s bombshell allegation accusing Alicia Florrick of voter fraud in her recent election win for the office of State’s Attorney. (Fret not: It looks like those racy leaked emails between her and her late lover Will are now just a minor chapter in 50 Shades of Things I Shouldn’t Have Typed Into a Computer.)

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

30 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »
