There are no hard rules for AFI‘s list of Top 10 programs of the year as the film institute tends to mix critical darlings with crowd pleasers, series, miniseries and TV movies. (Cable ratings juggernauts The Walking Dead and American Horror Story: Asylum made the AFI Awards list last year, along with the HBO movie Game Change). No longform entries on this year’s list, which features one major surprise — the omission of ABC’s Emmy-winning Modern Family, which had been among AFI’s Top 10 programs each of the past four years. Also Mia this season is Showtime’s drama Homeland, which made the cut the last two years. This is the most drama-heavy AFI list I can remember, with only one half-hour series, HBO’s Veep. (Netflix’s hourlong Orange Is The New Black was nominated as a comedy by the WGA but is competing as a drama for »

Catching Fire is inventing new kinds of money to make. So, lest there was any doubt, there will be a Mockingjay movie. Or rather, two Mockingjay movies. Heck, they’re filming the movies right now; maybe they’ll squeeze out a third one in their spare time. Book-splitting isn’t so much a trend as it is Standard Operating Procedure for now: Popularized by Harry Potter, debased by Twilight, taken to ludicrous extremes by The Hobbit. But splitting up Mockingjay offers a particular challenge to the filmmakers: How do you turn that book into two different PG-13 movies?

We haven't heard anything about the action thriller El Presidente since 2010 when Tom Cruise was attached to the project and the actor was trying to get the likes of Jack Nicholson and even Robert Downey Jr. involved in the project with Jay Roach (Game Change, The Campaign) directing. Now Cruise is back with a vengeance trying to get the film off the ground at Warner Bros. again, and this time he has his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman at the helm, and the two are making a last ditch effort to get Nicholson involved in the project which would mark their first big screen reunion since A Few Good Men back in 1992. For those who don't know, the story follows a dedicated Secret Service agent (Cruise) assigned to protect a bumbling and degenerate ex-president (Nicholson) with apparently hilarious, yet quite dangerous, results. The unlikely duo would find themselves on »

At The Hollywood Reporter's recent Next Gen event, I had the opportunity to chat a bit with Danny Strong, the Emmy-winning writer (last year's Game Change) who penned the script of one of this year's most buzzed-about Oscar contenders, Lee Daniels' The Butler. I asked Strong to share his thoughts on what has proven to be one of this award season's more confusing matters: the categorization of The Butler's screenplay as an original screenplay contender rather than an adapted screenplay contender, even though it tells a story very similar to the one of Eugene Allen, a real person,

Jack Black and Tim Robbins are heading to television. THR reports that the duo will lead a half-hour dark comedy pilot for HBO called The Brink, which is being produced by Meet the Parents and Austin Powers director Jay Roach. The series focuses on “a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men,” with Robbins playing the U.S. Secretary of State and Black playing a foreign service officer who is reluctantly caught on the ground. The third role of a Navy fighter pilot has yet to be cast. Roach has a history with HBO as of late on the more dramatic side of things, as he directed the impressive political features Recount and Game Change. Weeds alum Roberto Benabib is writing the pilot script alongside his brother Kim Benabib while Roach will direct. Black and Robbins, who both appeared in Anchorman and Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, »

Written by Weeds‘ Roberto Benabib and brother Kim and directed by Jay Roach (Game Change), the project is described as an epic dark comedy focusing on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men.
Black will play Alex Coppins, a lowly Foreign Service officer reluctantly caught on the ground in the middle of it all, while Robbins will play Us Secretary of State Walter Hollander, a man of big »

While strolling the halls of Afm, we came across this bit of sales art for the two-part The Hunger Games: Mockingjay movie that's on its way so here it is for you cats who need to consume everything you can to quell your hunger.
Danny Strong (HBO's "Game Change") has been tapped to write the two-part Hunger Games finale Mockingjay, which will follow Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) as she leads a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol in the futuristic land of Panem.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be in theatres on November 21st, 2014, with Part 2 following on November 20th, 2015.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Book Synopsis
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they »

“Double Down,” Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s follow up to “Game Change,” answers one of the more perplexing questions of the 2012 presidential campaign: Why did Mitt Romney’s team give carte blanche to Clint Eastwood to say whatever he wanted in the final hour of the final night of the Republican National Convention?
That’s when Eastwood famously spoke to an empty chair, in which the actor went well over his alloted time and left most of the audience baffled. Romney’s senior strategist, Stuart Stevens, was backstage with Romney watching Eastwood, and while the Republican nominee “seemed to think it was funny — at least at first,” the authors write, Stevens was so upset by the “disaster occurring on stage” that he “excused himself, went into another room and vomited.”
Eastwood’s imaginary conversation with Obama instantly generated a storm of Twitter quips and a few parody handles, but »

Could Jeff Garlin inhabit Chris Christie as well as Julianne Moore did Sarah Palin? We think he could. Garlin is just one of our dream castings as HBO develops "Double Down," a sequel to the election drama "Game Change." Both are based on the books by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann. Just-released excerpts from "Double Down: Game Change 2012" feature inside dirt on the race between President Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney. So it's time to speculate on who should be the next Romney, Obama, Paul Ryan and more. Cast your own votes in the comments. »

The line between fiction and reality keeps getting blurrier.
So it’s little surprise that there are twice as many reality-based films currently vying for awards attention as last year, when one of those, “Argo,” took home the best picture Oscar.
Even though such movies are tough to pull off, filmmakers agree that the jump in numbers (from 8 to 17) is due to several factors, including audience tastes, studio responsiveness, filmmakers’ determination and the social-media world we now inhabit.
Condon suggests that thanks to public platforms like YouTube and Twitter, “People are starring in the movies of their own lives and sharing those things with everybody else.”
Hollywood biopics have flourished since the 1930s, and found new energy in recent years with the success of »

With the timely releases of "Zero Dark Thirty," "Margin Call," "The Social Network" and "Game Change," Hollywood has been trending toward turning recent news stories into movies as quickly as possible. The trend continues this month with both "The Fifth Estate" (the WikiLeaks movie) and "Captain Phillips" (the, uh, Captain Phillips movie) hitting theaters.
Hollywood isn't catching every news story, though. We conjured posters for eight news items that probably won't be coming to a theater near you any time soon.

Julianne Moore has received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The 52-year-old actress was honoured at a ceremony in honour of her Hollywood career so far yesterday (October 3).
Moore was presented with the 2,507th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which sits on 6250 Hollywood Blvd.
Carrie will open in Us cinemas on October 18 and November 29 in the UK. Watch a clip below: »
Looking gorgeous, Julianne Moore! The 52-year-old star appeared absolutely radiant today when she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in honor of her outstanding career in Hollywood. Moore glowed in a bright yellow gown that showed off her slim figure and high-heeled strappy sandals. She wore her hair down in soft curls and smiled from ear to ear as she happily posed for pics. The red-headed-beauty's Don Jon costar Joseph Gordon-Levitt as well as Jay Roach, who directed Moore in her Emmy-winning performance as Sarah Palin in the 2012 made-for-television movie Game Change, joined Julianne in speaking at the ceremony. Chloë Grace Mortez, who stars alongside Moore in the upcoming »
Julianne Moore‘s not normally known for taking villainous roles (unless you count her turn as Sarah Palin in Game Change), but she certainly seems devoted to being as creepy as possible in this first clip from the upcoming Carrie remake. Moore’s got all the goods: crazy eyes, hair that’s just a little too long and a little too stringy, a sensible navy blue top, and a collection of self-inflicted claw marks. Anybody who’s read Stephen King‘s original novel or seen any one of the many adaptations that followed will know all the basics presented in this clip. Carrie’s (Chloe Moretz) mom is a deranged fundamentalist, and Carrie tends to express her teenage rebellion through telekinetic force blasts. The attack on the door may come off a little too computer-y, but it still provides a reasonably compelling jump scare. Pour some fake blood over a Jesus statue and you’re good to »

Film directors love Julianne Moore and she must love them back. After all, she’s married to one (Bart Freundlich). Muse to Paul Thomas Anderson and Todd Haynes, a complicit partner to Robert Altman and Lisa Cholodenko, a fleshed-out Sarah Palin (“Game Change”) seemingly more genuine than the article, Moore has worked with some of cinema’s most accomplished talents — both behind and in front of the camera.
In fact, the four-time Oscar nominee’s work has been so consistently strong over the years that it’s almost easy to take her for granted. Her name doesn’t always come up in conversations about the grand dames of English-language cinema, perhaps because she doesn’t call attention to the craft as conspicuously as Meryl Streep or Cate Blanchett, nor does she attract the tabloid attention of Nicole Kidman or Angelina Jolie, whose creative risks are either viewed as acts of »
