As the Valentine’s Day chocolates are digested and the flowers slowly wilt in their vases, someone is keeping the love alive. Production companies Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures are uniting to bring the story of Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn’s decades-long romance to the big screen.That shared feeling flows through the movies they made together of course, including nine projects in 27 years. The love affair between Tracy and Hepburn scandalised some corners of Hollywood but burned brightly and powerfully from their first meeting at MGM before making Woman Of The Year, and only ended with Tracy’s death days after finishing work on Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner. Tracy, of course, was still married to Louise Tracy for the entire relationship, and the film will also chronicle their struggles thanks to his battles with Catholic guilt and alcohol.David Rambo, a writer-producer on TV series such as CSI and Revolution, »
When people talk about classic Hollywood couples, Tracy and Hepburn are chief among them. The bond between Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy was so strong that it became a lasting part of their legacy and careers. The pair starred in nine films together before Tracy died in 1967, and now their decades-long relationship will be getting the Hollywood treatment with a biopic of its own. Variety reports independent production companies Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures are teaming up for Tracy and Hepburn. The script was penned by David Rambo, whose written episodes of television's CSI and Revolution. The film will chronicle the 26 years from when Hepburn and Tracy met while making Woman of the Year for MGM, through the creation of their last film, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, and Tracy's death just 17 days after that picture wrapped. Of course, despite their onscreen chemistry, their off-screen romance was messy to say »
With the news that the Katharine Hepburn-Spencer Tracy romance is getting the big-screen treatment in "Tracy and Hepburn," we at Toh! have two polls for you: Who should play Hepburn? Who should play Tracy? The film will reportedly cover the stars' 27-year relationship, from when they first met on the MGM lot while making "Woman of the Year" (pictured above), to Tracy's death only days after wrapping his final scene in 1967's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." They made nine films together and, while never married, Hepburn and Tracy's love affair was an open secret in Hollywood. The project is being produced by Permut Presentations and Reunion Pictures, and is penned by TV scribe David Rambo ("CSI," "Revolution"). So, which actors would be best suited to play the iconic pair? Sadly, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman would have been a great candidate for Tracy. Who should play »

If it's the end of the world as we know it, TV feels fine. Led by shows including AMC's The Walking Dead, TNT's Falling Skies and NBC's Revolution, postapocalyptic TV is blowing up — and a lot more of it is on the way.
"There's a huge appeal right at the moment," says Revolution executive producer Rockne S. O'Bannon. Among the upcoming shows that revolve around a dystopian future: The CW's The 100 (debuting Wed., March 19, at 9/8c), which follows a group of juvenile delinquents who are shipped from a space station back to Earth in order to see whether it's inhabitable a century after a nuclear holocaust. (The network also just ordered a pilot for The Messengers, about a group of people who are killed, then resurrected, after something crashes into Earth.)

As we approach the premiere of Alfonso Cuaron‘s Bad Robot series Believe on NBC, we’re starting to get TV spots and more to promote it, and give us a little more information. For many of us, “Alfonso Cuaron” or “Bad Robot” would be enough to get us to watch, let alone the fact that it comes from both of them, but still, more information is always nice.
Here’s the synopsis, followed by the new TV spot and trailer, along with the Comic-Con trailer we posted last July. Sorry, that does mean you’ll need to listen to the famous scream three times, but it’s worth it:
Levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, see the future … since she was born, Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) has had gifts she could neither fully understand nor control. But now that she is 10 years old, her powers have become stronger and »

2.13 Happy Endings
Happy Endings started with disappointment for gifted actor Stephen Collins, when Gene survives his Typhus/Typhoid/Man-flu. There’s no escape (or capture) for his character, and I feel for him. He’s condemned to live on by Bass-Boy, who manages to get the drugs and escape from town with the help of Miles and his sniping skills. Have you noticed how firearms are no longer an issue in Revolution, and nobody uses bows any longer? Perhaps the Patriots unleashed a huge stockpile of ammo?
Anyway, they get back to Grandpa with the antidote, and after injecting him leave the rest of the drug in the camp so that Ed ‘JFK’ Truman won’t die and should any of them contract the illness they’d be utterly stuffed. »

After previous hints of a religious undertone to the creation of the nanites, the show goes full-bore into the topic this week. Aaron and Priscilla hit the next stop on their world tour of enlightenment, or whatever it is the nanites want them to do, and they meet up with old friend Peter. The trio worked together on the operating system that powers the tiny machines and the nanites hold all three in deep regard for bringing them to life. Where Aaron was confused by and dismissed the power he held as a master of the nanite, Peter has embraced it. Yet instead of understanding that he commands millions of tiny machines, he believes he is harnessing the power of God to conduct miracle healings.

J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions cannot be stopped. Not counting past successes (and fanboy favorites) like Alias, Lost and Fringe, the Star Trek and Star Wars director has developed 14 television shows over the past 13 years, with three still on the air: CBS' Person of Interest, Fox's Almost Human and Revolution, a post-apocalyptic science fiction drama that takes place 15 years after the start of a worldwide blackout. A Wednesday night staple for NBC, Revolution has wowed critics and audiences since its 2012 debut (literally: it won an Emmy last year for »
Alfonso Cuarón wins 2014 DGA Award for ‘Gravity’ (photo: Directors Guild of America Award winner Alfonso Cuarón and last year’s DGA Award winner Ben Affleck) As expected, Alfonso Cuarón won the 2014 Directors Guild of America Award for the blockbuster Gravity at a January 25, 2014, ceremony held at Los Angeles’ Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. “We saw all these photographs of earth from space, and it’s absolutely beautiful; hues of greens and blues,” Cuarón told the crowd after receiving his award from last year’s DGA winner, Ben Affleck. “Everything seems so organic [from space]. Those silly lines and boundaries we put on political maps, you can’t see that from space. It’s a bizarre experiment of nature, that is the human experience. And it’s what we as directors try to sort out as filmmakers.” A mix of space thriller and inspirational soap opera that has just about nothing to do with »

Revolution, Season 2, Episode 12: “Captain Trips”
Directed by Steve Boyum
Airs Wednesdays at 8pm (Et) on NBC
After weeks and weeks of rampant plotting, Revolution takes its foot off the gas and finally gives us all a breather.
“Captain Trip” is a marked change in pace from what we’re used to and doesn’t feature much in the way of action outside of a few violent flurries, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing as it allows us to take stock and absorb what’s going on.
The typhus plague introduced in “Mis Dos Padres” absorbs most of the main characters in the A-plot, with Rachel jumping in to help Gene and Charlie get to the bottom of the problem, while Miles, Monroe, and Connor monitor this situation from outwith the quarantine camp. It’s set up like a procedural: there’s »
