Stephen Colbert Compares Donald Trump, Jr.’s Russia Meeting to ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ — Watch

22 July 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Oliver calls it “Stupid Watergate.” Dan Pfeiffer refers to it as “the plot of ‘House of Cards’ with the characters from ‘Veep.'” And now Stephen Colbert is comparing Donald Trump and his family’s endless controversies to “Ocean’s Eleven,” namely the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and at least seven other people held last year that was totally about adoptions.

Speaking about Ike Kaveladze, the most recent person confirmed to have been present at the eight-person meeting, Colbert says he adds intrigue to what’s been described as “a varied cast of characters.” Then it dawns on him: “I just realized what this meeting is — it’s a heist movie.

Jeph Loeb on Daredevil being “critical” to Marvel Television

20 July 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Daredevil was “critical” to the rise and success of Marvel Television according to Jeph Loeb.

With Daredevil season 3 in the works, and shows like The Punisher and The Defenders soon on the way, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb has talked about just how important that first Netflix show was.

Setting the scene, Loeb said to Variety, “The first episode of Daredevil started shooting three years ago. At that time we had Agents of Shield and Agent Carter on ABC, and that was it.” Marvel are now in some level of production on 14 different series

“It was a critical show for a lot of reasons — not just that we were on a different platform,” said Loeb. “Oddly enough, Netflix was a very young network at the time. It’s hard to imagine because their growth has been spectacularly high. I remember going in when we first talked to them, and they basically had House of Cards, »

The Forgotten: Helmut Käutner's "The Glass of Water" (1960)

20 July 2017 4:19 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

One of the many treats at this year's Il Cinema Ritrovato festival of restored or rediscovered films was a retrospective of the works of Helmut Käutner, who has been known and admired for a few select works but whose larger oeuvre is rarely screened. Curators Olaf Möller and Christoph Huber explained that this was partly because the German director's comedies often deal with German current affairs of the day in a way which makes them seem obscure even to modern German audiences. But one humorous movie proved timeless.Käutner began his career during WWII, but never seems to have been seriously tainted by associations with the Nazi regime. Indeed his great successes shot during wartime, Grosse Freiheit No. 7 (1944) and Under the Bridges (1946) apparently made the authorities uncomfortable: framed in a setting that's not-quite period and not-quite alternate reality, where the war simply does not exist, they seemed...a touch defeatist. »

Marvel TV Head Jeph Loeb On The Importance Of Daredevil And The Growth Of Their Studio

19 July 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Marvel Television has had amazing growth in recent years. You need look no further than their growing list of shows across various networks that include ABC, Netflix, Fox, Freeform, and FX (and yes, this includes their partnerships with Fox like Legion and The Gifted). Back in the mid-2000s, superhero shows were pretty hard to come by. You had some like Smallville, but on the whole, they were an investment that not all studios thought would pay off. The closest thing we had to the ecosystem we have now was the show Heroes, which quickly went downhill after its first season.

Needless to say, things are looking much better for superhero properties, and Marvel TV — which has 14 series at various stages of production — is undoubtedly a big part of that. However, if you’re this writer, the stuff that’s been truly interesting from the studio has been what they »

Wonder Woman set to become the biggest summer movie of 2017

19 July 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

DC’s Wonder Woman is set to tick off more achievements and become the biggest summer movie of 2017 domestically.

Having already become one of the biggest films of the year, and taking fifth place in the highest grossing action heroine movies of all time, Wonder Woman should be passing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 any day now.

Currently clocking in at $381 million in the U.S., the superhero movie is only $5 million behind the Marvel sci-fi sequel which sits at $386 million – an incredibly successful movie in its own right.

Slipping past Guardians will make Wonder Woman the summer’s biggest movie but it is still quite some way off the year’s number one movie overall. Beauty and the Beast claims that particular spot, having accumulated $504 million.

Globally, Wonder Woman is sitting in fourth place in the year’s highest grossing films, behind Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, »

Emmy Voters Reward Veterans Over Risk-Takers

19 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The challenging goal of the Emmy Awards is to reflect who we are in this moment, to single out those shows that represent the best of what’s being created across all platforms. This year’s list of Emmy nominees succeeded in some ways — highlighting risk-taking freshmen shows such as FX’s “Atlanta” and “The Handmaid’s Tale” and exceptional performances from Sterling K. Brown, Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed and many others.

But frustratingly, the voters also showed a stubborn reluctance to let go of the past, with nods for legacy shows long past their prime. The result is an uneven lineup, scattered with bright spots but plagued by too many noteworthy omissions.

To be fair, their job isn’t easy — sifting through the nearly 500 scripted shows produced in the past year that fed into 117 categories and a record-breaking 9,000 submissions. No one reasonably has time to watch them all. (Those of us who cover TV barely do »

Inside Paula Patton’s Life as a Mom

19 July 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In ABC’s new supernatural series Somewhere Between, Paula Patton plays a time-traveling journalist granted the opportunity to alter her future. But despite any highs and lows in her personal life, the actress insists she wouldn’t change a thing.

“At the end of the day, it’s best to move forward,” the L.A. native, 41, tells People. “I’m in that part of my life right now where there’s huge changes.”

Indeed, Patton and high school sweetheart Robin Thicke, 40, divorced in 2015 after eight years of marriage; and in January, they engaged in a custody battle over son Julian, »

Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb Talks Studio’s Rise, Importance of Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’

19 July 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Marvel Television has 14 current drama series on TV or in pre-production. That puts it in the same league as Hollywood’s major studios, with two more current scripted hour-long series than Sony Pictures Television has. Marvel serves as lead studio on all but two of its shows, “Legion” and “The Gifted.”

What makes Marvel a TV oddity is not its rapid growth from just two dramas three years ago but rather its polyamorous nature. At a time when vertical integration makes it difficult for a studio to sell to anyone other than its sibling network, Marvel has series at six platforms across broadcast, cable and streaming.

Variety spoke with Jeph Loeb, exec VP and head of television, about the studio’s rise.

How would you describe Marvel’s approach to TV?

While many people from the outside look at us in the studio, we see ourselves as producers who are working to support the vision of our »

Although Wonder Woman 2 is yet to be officially announced, we’ve already heard that Geoff Johns and director Patty Jenkins are hard at work on the story for the sequel to this year’s DC blockbuster, and now TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has revealed that she’s had talks about making a cameo in the Amazon Princess’ next solo big screen adventure.

“Yes, we’ve talked about it, ” said Carter in an interview with People. “We were trying to get me in the first one and we couldn’t make it work with our timing. It really is up to Patty, and if it works in an organic way it’ll be great fun and it’ll be wonderful to do. Am I open to it? Absolutely. I Adore Patty Jenkins, and it’ll be wonderful to do. But we’ll just see how that goes.”

Majority of Netflix subscribers now based outside North America

18 July 2017 1:26 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Streaming giant’s stock reaches all-time high.

Netflix’s global subscriber level has reached almost 104m, powered by a surge in international members as stock reached its highest level on Tuesday.

Netflix added 5.2m worldwide subscribers in the second quarter. International customers now out-number those in North America after an additional 4.14m members signed up and brought the tally to 52.03m, ahead of the 51.92m from North America following a 1.07m increase in the second quarter.

On Tuesday morning shares hit $179.15, which valued the streaming giant at $77.1bn – marginally higher than Time Warner but still dwarfed by Apple’s $778bn. Second quarter revenue climbed 30% to $2.97bn.

Second quarter results announced late on Monday exceeded Wall Street estimates and means the latest growth spurt was greater than the combined subscriber growth of HBO Go, CBS All Access and the Ott platforms of Showtime and Starz.

In a letter to shareholders, Netflix top brass attributed the subscriber leap to »

Exclusive: Wonder Woman star Connie Nielsen shares a funny story about her “awkward” first meeting with Gal Gadot

18 July 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth’s Tai Freligh caught up with Wonder Woman star Connie Nielsen this past week to discuss her role in her new film The Confessions, and also managed to slip in a few questions about her work in the DC Extended Universe, during which Connie shared a funny story about her first meeting with the Amazon Princess herself, Gal Gadot.

I thoroughly enjoyed Wonder Woman.  Have you been surprised by how wildly successful the movie has been?

Gratified and grateful for the reception of this film.

Any funny set stories working with Gal Gadot?

The first time I met Gal I was in the make up trailer inside a tanning tent getting spray tanned – a uniquely clammy experience – when, as I step out of the tent, naked but for a thong, Gal is whipping off her clothes to get into the tent – and that’s where we said hello the first time. »

Netflix’s Ted Sarandos Stands By Cancellations: ‘If You’re Not Failing…You’re Not Trying Hard Enough’

18 July 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Netflix executives put a positive spin on recent cancellations, noting a 93% renewal rate for original programming, which they say is much higher than most traditional television networks. In an interview with investors discussing second quarter results, chief content officer Ted Sarandos emphasized the need to take creative programming risks: “If you’re not failing, maybe you’re not trying hard enough,” he said.

The streaming platform upset fans earlier this year when it announced it would not renew two high-profile shows: The Wachowski siblings’ “Sense8,” and Baz Luhrmann’s “The Get Down.” Both shows reportedly had very high production budgets. The critically lauded “Bloodline,” a thriller from the creators of “Damages,” was also canceled. “The more shows we have, the more likely in absolute numbers that you’ll see cancellations, of course,” Sarandos said.

Netflix Blasts Past Expectations By Adding 5.2 Million New Subscribers In Second Quarter Of 2017

17 July 2017 4:42 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix continues to roll along. In its earnings report for the second quarter of 2017, the streaming service announced that it gained 5.2 million new subscribers between April and June, which far outdid its original projection for that period.

4.14 million of those new subscribers came from overseas territories, while the remaining 1.07 were domestic additions here in the Us. Back in its first quarter earnings report, Netflix projected a subscriber bump of just 3.2 million new accounts in Q2, so it exceeded that goal by more than 62%. As a result of its big quarter, the streaming service saw its total revenue jump to $2.97 billion, which easily surpassed the $2.76 billion estimate laid down by investors.

As CNBC notes, Netflix’s explosive Q2 growth is an especially good sign given that the company often struggles during this period. Last year, for example, it had a weak Q2, which caused its stock to temporarily dip.

The House of Cards Death You Probably Missed This Season

17 July 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: this post contains spoilers for the fifth season of House of Cards. House of Cards presented three shocking deaths in its fifth season, but there was another casualty so subtle that it seems to have slipped entirely under the radar. The new season brought the return - and demise - of a small and easily forgotten character: Eric Rawlings, played by Malcolm Madera. If you're thinking that Eric's appearance in the series ends when Frank Underwood fires him as his personal trainer and breaks off their relationship, well, you're mistaken. Let's backtrack a little. Eric is first introduced back in season two as a Civil War reenactment actor. More specifically, he is portraying Frank's great-great-great grandfather Corporal Augustus Elijah Underwood. Frank is visiting the historic site when he meets Eric and learns about his grandfather's death on the battlefield. At the time, Eric says the corporal was brutally beaten »
