Warning: The following contains spoilers from Tuesday’s iZombie Season 2 premiere.
No wonder iZombie executive producer Rob Thomas has been keeping mum about Major’s arc in Season 2!
At the close of the CW series’ sophomore opener on Tuesday night, Liv’s ex-fiancé was blackmailed by Max Rager into agreeing to kill off all of Seattle’s zombies. In return, Major’s pretty, undead ex stays unharmed. (Oh, and thanks to the cure’s side effects, Major can now sense when somebody is a zombie. Helpful!)

On any other brain, the undead medical examiner probably would have enjoyed Rose’s “T-shirts are passé” duds. But seeing as how she just ingested the noggin of an extremely cranky, old man, Liv has a very blunt response to his “ironic” explanation.

The Oscar-winning director hasn't made a feature film since 2013's Hitchcockian psychological thriller "Side Effects," though he has since been reborn as one of television's boldest auteurs with TV films like "Behind the Candelabra" and the acclaimed Cinemax medical drama, "The Knick." In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Soderbergh makes it clear that his retirement is merely from the film industry, and that television has become the saving grace for auteur creators. Talking about his upcoming Starz series "The Girlfriend Experience," an adaptation of his 2009 low-fi drama of the same name, Soderbergh explained, "We're used to the writer-producer being the ultimate Oz figure on a show, but not here. Here it's the directors' vision. You feel it right »

While I'm not going to get into the debate of what Steven Soderbergh actually meant when he announced his "retirement" a few years ago, one thing is clear: he's put movies behind him. It's been two years since he dropped the 2013 double whammy of "Side Effects" and "Behind The Candelabra" and said sayonara to making traditional features. Since then, he's turned his attention to television, delivering "The Knick" (don't sleep, it's one of the best shows on TV right now), and executive producing the upcoming series, "The Girlfriend Experience," based on his own feature. So why doesn't he want to make another film that you buy a ticket for at your local multiplex or arthouse? In a new chat with THR, he explains why.

It’s his Flash Day, and Barry will cry if he wants to.
Ok, the speedster isn’t unleashing any of his impressive waterworks in these first photos from the CW hit’s Season 2 premiere (Oct. 6 at 8/7c), but a celebration in his honor does get a rude interruption from Atom-Smasher (Haven star and former WWE Superstar Adam Copeland).

The upcoming David Gordon Green film Our Brand Is Crisis wants desperately to have the word “satire” associated with it, but the trailer doesn’t offer us up a satire (in fact or theory), and it hasn’t gone far to offer up something worth watching either.
While I’m no fan of Sandra Bullock, I suspect this is largely a result of a trailer that simply isn’t put together well, an odd note considering the subject of the film, because David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Prince Avalanche, Joe) can put together a film, and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Wolf Hall) can certainly write amazing screenplays.
The film’s synopsis describes it as “laced with satire,” which, quite frankly, is a turn of phrase that makes it hard to imagine exactly what you have in mind, and more broadly, the trailer seems to be shooting for a path of least resistance. »

Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side) and Billy Bob Thornton (Sling Blade) offer a glimpse inside the high-powered world of the political campaign trail in the first trailer and poster for Warner Bros.' Our Brand Is Crisis. With an all-star cast, this political thriller from director David Gordon Green arrives in theaters October 30, going up against Relativity's Autobahn and Paramount's Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. This could be an early Oscar contender as well, but we'll have to see how the fans and critics alike respond
A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist "Calamity" Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, »
Since launching in 2011 through a partnership between theater chains AMC Theatres and Regal Entertainment Group, distributor Open Road Films has amassed a sui generis blend of often genre-leaning product that stands apart from the competition. Movies like Joe Carnahan’s “The Grey” (longtime readers will recall my affinity for that, the best film of 2012) and Steven Soderbergh’s “Side Effects” were favorably received by critics, while others like Jon Favreau’s “Chef” were hits as well. But none truly flirted with the awards season until last year’s “Nightcrawler.”
Nevertheless, Dan Gilroy’s broadcast news thriller came up short, too. It picked up surprise notices from the producers and screen actors guilds and was, for obvious reasons, adored by press and critics groups. But only the writers branch of the Academy spoke up for it come Oscar time. It was a scathing film, one that packed a heavy and cynical punch — perhaps too cynical. »

Disney is developing the dramedy movie “Dumplin'” based on the upcoming Julie Murphy young adult novel, Variety has learned.
Disney acquired the movie rights preemptively and is in talks with Michael Costigan to produce the film. HarperCollins is scheduled to publish the Texas-set novel through its Balzer + Bray imprint on Sept. 15.
The novel centers on a confident teen girl — named Dumplin’ by her former beauty queen mom — taking a job at the local fast-food joint. She meets a former jock whom she likes and he seems to like her back. When she begins to doubt herself, she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering a beauty pageant to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any skinny girl does.

Focus Features has released four new clips and five minutes of behind-the-scenes footage for Tarsem Singh‘s latest mind-bender, Self/less, a psychological sci-fi thriller about a dying man (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” While most of the clips are noticeably lacking in Tarsem's distinct visual opulence, one of them finally reveals a glimpse at that aesthetic panache Tarsem is known for - but seriously, just a glimpse. The glinting gold pillow atop a sterile medical bed both feels like signature Tarsem and fits with the idea that the immortality procedure and "best of the human experience" is exclusively available to those in the highest echelons of society. These clips are also a great reminder that Reynolds is an excellent actor when »

Focus Features has released a new featurette and clip for Tarsem Singh‘s latest, Self/less, a psychological science fiction thriller about a man dying from cancer (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” I'm intrigued by Self/less. The ramifications a man faces when he tries to beat god always makes for solid ground to build a riveting science fiction premise on, and Tarsem is a compelling director with an eccentric track record, so I'm always intrigued to see what he'll do next. Stylistically, Self/less looks quite restrained for the director, who can occasionally get so immersed in his visuals that narrative falls by the wayside. When he's at his best we get The Fall, at his worst, Immortals (which I actually »
