ABC's new fall shows: A snap judgment

13 May 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Superheroes and fairy tales dominated the midseason lineup at ABC’s upfront presentation, with shows like Galavant and Marvel’s Agent Carter coming soon. “We may be a terrible network,” joked Jimmy Kimmel, “but we are a great birthday party for a 6-year-old.” But for fall, ABC stuck to the basics: broad comedies, police procedurals, and Shonda Rhimes, whom ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee described as the Charles Dickens of our generation. Her latest show, How to Get Away With Murder, isn’t exactly Great Expectations, but it might be the only new ABC series worth watching. Quick takes on the others follow below. »

Actor-Writer-Director Dan Fogler on His Feature Film Directorial Debut, ‘Don Peyote’

9 May 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Dan Fogler (“Kung Fu Panda,” “Hannibal,” “Man Up”) has been on the outskirts of the scene for some time now, but his new film, “Don Peyote” is pushing him into the limelight. Fogler tells the story of an unemployed stoner who becomes obsessed with 2012 doomsday theories with the help of cast mates Anne Hathaway, Jay Baruchel, and Josh Duhamel. He tells Backstage of his experience making the film. I approached making “Don Peyote” as an actor first. I wanted to make something where I could flex some creative muscle, and show more of the spectrum of my abilities. Playing a party animal/nerd is fun, but, the real message here is you have to create parts for yourself if the parts you want to play aren’t out there or coming to you. Period. And anyone can be a moviemaker, nowadays, when you have a camera in your phone. I will admit, »

Man Up: here to end Britain's masculinity crisis

28 February 2014 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Not manly enough to succeed in today's cut throat world? Olivia Lee is here to 'help'

Believe it or not, there are still some men who give matte-look hair wax, sidling over to girls with a raised eyebrow, and owning their own home a swerve. You know, losers. Each week in Man Up (Wednesday, 10pm, Fox) Olivia Lee hopes to explore the nuances of masculinity in the accelerated pace of a shifting culture by nagging one of these chumps. And then giving them a makeover.

Over the course of this series, themes of unemployment, poor grooming and sloth emerge, all of which are qualities found in our first loser, Kris. Christ in a dole queue, Kris: no job in this rotten workhouse of a fiscal climate? Man Up. Floundering to find meaning in a sick society built on vanity and greed? Man Up. Council did your haircut?

Berlin: Weinstein Company Is the Big Spender, But How Many Markets are Too Many?

10 February 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin’s 2014 European Film Market saw a late sales rally, one record claimed, a few hot sellers and even some surprises. But as one producer-distributor put it, there were “not enough good screenplays nor good directors nor buyers.”

“It’s not just that this market is so slow,” Constantin’s Martin Moszkowicz continued. “There are far too many markets in the year. Two markets should go.”

The Weinstein Co. plunked down $7 million — a Berlin record, maybe — for Benedict Cumberbatch starrer “The Imitation Game,” which FilmNation was reportedly selling strongly.

Im Global announced many major-market sales on “Labor of Love,” reteaming M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce Willis. Toymaker Mattel’s hoped-for live-action franchise “Max Steel,” another Im Global title, sold most of the world, said Im Global’s Stuart Ford.

K5 rolled out a second Willis title, the futuristic “Vice.”

Exclusive’s “Black Mass,” with Johnny Depp reattached, was one of the market’s buzziest titles. »

Ant-Man Gets Bumped Up To Batman Vs. Superman’s Former Release Date

23 January 2014 6:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A few weeks ago we heard that Batman Vs. Superman was vacating its summer 2015 slot in favor of May 2016. It was safe to assume such a prime weekend wouldn’t remain unclaimed for too long, and sure enough, today we have word that Disney is swooping in and bumping Ant-Man up to July 17th.

This is the second date change for the Edgar Wright-directed superhero flick, as it was originally slated to release November 5, 2015 before moving to July 31st of the same year. It’s not the only big movie coming out that weekend either, with Warner Bros. scheduling their Peter Pan origin tale, Pan, for that same weekend. Still, Pan won’t draw nearly as big of an audience as Batman Vs. Superman would have, meaning Ant-Man should have no trouble winning the box office battle.

In previous years, that particular weekend has been huge for Warner Bros. »
