X-men: Apocalypse: Olivia Munn Shows Off Psylocke Sword Skills in New Video

29 June 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Production is currently underway in Montreal on director Bryan Singer’s 80s-set sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, and while the film will continue the stories of well-established mutant characters like Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender), it’s also introducing a slew of comics characters both familiar and new. In addition to younger versions of mutants we’ve already seen in the movies (like Jean Grey and Cyclops), X-Men: Apocalypse is also bringing some folks to the screen for the first time—like Psylocke. In the character’s first appearances in the comics, Psylocke was a mutant who simply had telepathic powers. But later, she transformed into a Japanese ninja assassin, adding highly developed fighting skills to her repertoire. The Newsroom actress Olivia Munn is playing Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, and she recently shared a video on Instagram of some of her sword training: Learned some new tricks... A video posted »

Emmy predictions slugfest: Victory at last for Jon Hamm and history made by Viola Davis? (Video)

29 June 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Will Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") finally win an Emmy after 13 previous losses? Can Viola Davis ("How to Get Away with Murder") break the color barrier? In our new Emmy predictions slugfest (watch below), Gold Derby editors Daniel Montgomery, Charles Bright and Ralph Galvan join me in making our forecasts for Best Drama Actor and Best Drama Actress. -Break- Watch dozens of video chats with 2015 Emmy contenders If Hamm were to lose, we predict an upset victory for either Kevin Spacey ("House of Cards"), Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom"), Bob Odenkirk ("Better Call Saul"), Terrence Howard ("Empire") or Kyle Chandler ("Bloodline"). But watch out for a few under-the-radar actors that are still very much in this race. Since an African-American woman has never won Best Drama Actress, we wonder if perhaps that title will go to Davis, Taraji P. Henson ("Empire&quot..." »

"Game of Thrones" Season Six Directors Revealed

27 June 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

News has been leaked about the directing responsibilities for the sixth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" (via Entertainment Weekly). The list returns a few standouts from last season and adds a few new names into the mix. Episodes 1 & 2 will be handled by Jeremy Podeswa. He directed one of my favorite episodes from season five, "Kill the Boy" as well as the supremely unpopular "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken". He's been working with HBO for a while having also directed episodes of "True Blood", "The Newsroom", "Boardwalk Empire". Episodes 3 & 4 go to "Game of Thrones" newbie Daniel Sackheim. Recently he's contributed great work for the the FX original series "The Americans" including the standout season three finale. His work on "The Americans" proves he can handle meditative episodes with punches of action, a description that usually applies to mid-season "Thrones" episodes. Episodes 5 & 6 will also be helmed by a newcomer, Jack Bender. Bender is »

Review: The Newsroom The Complete Third Season

15 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Aaron Sorkin is an exceptionally talent writer who brings a playwright’s sensibilities to television which means his characters talk. A lot. But unlike so many prime time series, his characters actually have something to say. It’s a shame more people don’t want to hear whatever it is being discussed because Sorkin series tend not to last very long.

There were two seasons of Sports Night, four Sorkin-produced episodes of The West Wing and a single uneven season of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. For his self-proclaimed final act in television, Sorkin gave us three ever-shortened seasons of The Newsroom. This last ran on HBO and other than using a handful of words, could have easily aired on the major networks. After all, Sorkin didn’t pander with nudity or excessive violence.

The series’ conceit was that we were watching the fall and rise of network anchor »

Emmys upheaval: Get ready to see series regulars on guest acting ballots

13 June 2015 4:14 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last year’s Best Drama Guest Actor Joe Morton (“Scandal”) and Best Comedy Guest Actress Uzo Aduba (“Orange is the New Black”) were the latest Emmy winners in the guest categories to be guests only in the contractual sense of the word, as they appeared in every episode of their eligible seasons. To address this, the TV academy recently announced that any performer who appears in at least half of the season’s episodes will be ineligible as a guest; among those disqualified is two-time guest nominee Jane Fonda (“The Newsroom”) who appeared in half of this season's six episodes. Conversely, series regulars may now enter the guest races if they are in fewer than half of the season’s episodes as the Emmys nixed the use of contracts and billing to determine category qualification.  -Break- Emmy shockeroo: Guest actresses Jane Fonda and Laverne Cox must go supporting Starring-billed perfo. »

J.C. Chandor May Direct The Liar’S Ball for A24

9 June 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker J.C. Chandor not only has a solid track record thus far, but he’s a director who seems keen on mixing things up and raising his ambition for each subsequent film. His debut, Margin Call, was a talky drama that took place within the confines of a few offices. His next film, All Is Lost, had nearly zero dialogue and took place entirely at sea. To follow that up, he released the thoughtful crime drama A Most Violent Year last winter, and now he’s got his sights set on telling the history of a skyscraper. It was announced today that Chandor is teaming up with A Most Violent Year distributor A24 films to produce and possibly direct an adaptation of Vicky Ward’s book The Liar’s Ball, which recounts the full history of New York’s G.M. Building from before it was built to the present. »

J.C. Chandor Producing, May Direct The Liar’s Ball

9 June 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We were all pretty disappointed when J.C. Chandor, the terrifically talented helmer behind last December’s A Most Violent Year, fell off oil rig explosion drama Deepwater Horizon, but it appears that the director may have settled on a new project. Reteaming with A24, he’s producing and has plans to direct an adaptation of Vicky Ward’s book The Liar’s Ball, about the history of New York’s famed G.M. building.

Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb, both long-time collaborators of Chandor’s, are also producing the pic, which focuses on the furious battle between industry titans over the coveted area, which faces the southeast corner of Central Park. The script, which will be written by Manhattan and The Newsroom scribe Gideon Yago, heavily features Harry Macklowe and explores his fight to own and redevelop the G.M. Building over the last two decades. Apple’s famous glass »

Feinberg Forecast: Will 'Mad Men's' Jon Hamm Finally Win an Emmy?

9 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in a special Emmy issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Why is this year's lead actor in a drama series Emmy race different than six of the last seven? Because Bryan Cranston is no longer in the running for Breaking Bad, which exhausted its Emmy eligibility last year. Cranston's absence opens up one of the category's six slots for new blood. But who will be the beneficiaries of these vacancies and compete alongside -- presumably -- three perennial nominees: Mad Men's Jon Hamm, House of Cards' Kevin Spacey and The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels? Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk,
