24: Live Another Day Releases New Promo Teaser

10 March 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Getting people psyched up for the new 24 series, 24: Live Another Day, may strike many people as something along the lines of Coke commercials. At this point, are you really selling to anyone? We all know whether or not we’re interested in Coke.

Still, despite the idea that pulling in the completely uninitiated may be a questionable pursuit, Fox is pretty clear on the idea that it wants to make sure it doesn’t miss anyone. The new teaser doesn’t exactly give you a lot to go on, perhaps in a way similar to the idea that Coke commercials don’t exactly explain the product. But, it does at least give you the impression that it may pull off the difficult and dangerous attempt of standing next to the previous entries. I’m not absolutely convinced that this is a game we can keep playing, but the trailer looks good. »

Sam Raimi To Produce The Last of Us Movie

7 March 2014 8:35 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures are getting into the end-of-the-world business, signing on to produce a live-action big-screen adaptation of the hit Playstation 3 survival videogame “The Last of Us” for Screen Gems. Set 20 years “after an infectious pandemic ravaged the course of humanity,” the game follows a man named Joel and a teenage girl named Ellie who are “brought together by chance, [and] must make life-altering decisions in order to survive.” We’re told that the game apparently “explores themes of survival, loyalty, love, and redemption in an emotionally charged expedition across a post-epidemic United States.” Sounds like the TV show “Revolution,” but minus the awful writing of Season 2. Naughty Dog developed the game, and the boys from the company will produce the movie version. No director has been set, and it’s unlikely Raimi will direct, or honestly, do very much in terms of producing. At his point, »

Revolution season 2 episode 15 review: Dreamcatcher

7 March 2014 7:29 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Billy Grifter 7 Mar 2014 - 09:15

Revolution continues to channel The Matrix in this week's uncharacteristically enjoyable episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.15 Dreamcatcher

Not often does anything that happens in Revolution surprise me, because it’s usually constructed with the complexity of TV aimed at small children. But the end of the last story threw the sort-of crazy twist that only science fiction - or maybe Dallas - can. Aaron’s attempt to end the rule of the nanites ended with him waking up in 2014, with the post-electronic era relegated to just a crazy dream.

Dreamcatcher started with that same altered reality, and then decided to ride the concept around, like a feral child on a motorbike he’d stolen. It pains me to say so, but for forty minutes or so, this was much more entertaining than the usual Revolution guff, by some considerable margin.

As I said last week, »

Interview: Johnny Sequoyah and Jake McLaughlin of NBC’s “Believe”

7 March 2014 6:00 AM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

With a pedigree including executive producers J.J. Abrams (Revolution, Lost) and Alfonso Cuarón (Oscar-winning director of Gravity), you might expect something mysterious and technically thrilling from NBC‘s new series Believe, and you’d be right. Believe reminds me a little of Stephen King’s Firestarter, and follows young Bo (Johnny Sequoyah), a girl with gifts such as levitation, telekinesis and the ability to control nature, among other things. When sinister forces (led by a mysterious character played by Kyle MacLachlan) seek to control her and her abilities, Bo’s protectors (played by Delroy Lindo and Jamie Chung) turn to an unlikely source to … Continue reading →

J.J. Abrams is still a powerhouse when it comes to television. He currently has Revolution, Person Of Interest, and Almost Human airing on three different networks and now his collaboration with Alfonso Cuaron, Believe, will be premiering on NBC. We heard about Believe last year when it was announced as a midseason replacement show. Throughout the Olympics, NBC aired tons of commercials to hype the supernatural show which looks like it will follow the standard Abrams/Bad Robot formula of a »

Revolution, Ep. 2.15: “Dreamcatcher” goes brilliantly off the rails

6 March 2014 11:06 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Revolution, Season 2, Episode 15: “Dreamcatcher”

Written by Ben Edlund & Paul Grellong

Directed by Roxann Dawson

Airs Wednesdays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

It doesn’t take too long for Aaron to clack together his ruby slippers and remind himself that there’s no place like home, even though that familiar landscape is a desolate, sprawling hellscape where there’s exactly zero chance of a cold beer.

The nanites easily could have trapped Aaron in this alternate reality for multiple episodes. Instead, he is back to reality before the closing credits. What existed in the electrified world of his mind was false and he could not accept that, despite the promise of a more comfortable life. It’s a shame, though, that the episode’s two major twists — that the world of Pittman Digital existed only in his mind and the nanites tricked him into believing he was back in the »

'Revolution' Season 2, episode 15 - 'Dreamcatcher': Aaron enters the Matrix, does not know kung fu

5 March 2014 6:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The last episode of "Revolution" ended with Aaron trying to introduce a virus into the nanotech's code, effectively killing it. Naturally, it didn't take too kindly to that, sending all kinds of sparks flying and knocking him out.

When he comes to at the start of Wednesday's (March 5) episode, "Dreamcatcher," he's back in a world that had power, still married to Priscilla and running a big, fancy company (in Minneapolis, apparently, as his assistant kept asking if he wanted Timberwolves tickets and Neville's cheesy ads all featured a 612 area code). Of course, it isn't real -- the nano was running an elaborate virtual-reality program inside his head in an attempt to get him to fix the code once and for all.

Basically, then, Aaron is in the Matrix -- which the show at least had the decency to acknowledge following Charlie's surprise appearance there. (Aaron's bewildered "How do you know about that? »

Get Ready for Revolution’s Dreamcatcher Episode with Featurettes and Clip

4 March 2014 3:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

In a week seemingly full of game-changing episodes, the new Revolution episode is no exception. We got a taste of it at the end of last week’s episode, and oh kids, just wait til you see. This season has been excellent and just keeps getting better.

First, though, some reminders and some setup. Below is the “Revolution Revealed” featurette, which reminds us that David Lyons (Monroe) is charmingly Australian, and as it happens, enjoys singing Poison songs. But after we see a bit about Mat Vairo‘s Connor, Tracy Spiridakos‘s Charlie (who is looking increasingly like Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which equates to “pretty awesome”), and Giancarlo Esposito‘s Tom Neville, you’ll see Billy Burke talk about the new direction of the story in the next episode.

'Revolution': See Aaron's rough history with the nanotech

4 March 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When "Revolution" ended last week, Aaron (Zak Orth) was trying to kill his nanotech creation after it had created yet more problems for him, ex-wife Priscilla and former colleague Peter.

The nano, as you might expect, did not take kindly to Aaron's attempt to implant a virus in its code. It created a power surge that, based on previews for Wednesday's (March 5) show, blasts Aaron into an alternate reality where the world still has power.

Zap2it has an exclusive first look at some of the big moments in Aaron's fraught relationship with his creation. It's a useful primer to get you ready for the "Dreamcatcher" episode, which airs at 8 p.m. Et/Pt Wednesday on NBC. Take a look:

NBC's 'Revolution' twist: See Giancarlo Esposito as a sleazy insurance salesman -- Exclusive

28 February 2014 3:37 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Is your health at risk? No insurance? Better Call Neville!

Here’s a rather hypnotic commercial from NBC’s special episode of Revolution next week. The episode is largely set in an alternate reality where the blackout never happened. The below video shows the fearsome Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) in his former life pitching insurance in a low-budget local TV ad.

When the episode opens, Aaron (Zak Orth) awakes to find himself in a world with electrical power, married to Priscilla (Maureen Sebastian) and running his company. As he gets the feeling that something isn’t quite right, familiar faces begin to appear. »

Revolution season 2 episode 14 review: Fear And Loathing

28 February 2014 1:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Billy Grifter 28 Feb 2014 - 09:44

This week's Revolution contains a Wtf moment to rule them all. Here's Billy's review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.14 Fear And Loathing

Despite numerous calls to Putin, he refused to allow Sochi to go on longer, and I was forced to confront my worst fears. Revolution came back.

The majority of Fear and Loathing (…in New Las Vegas) revolved around the consequences of Bass and Connor being caught and being forced to cage fight to the death. On paper that sounds silly, though actually it wasn’t as daft as that might seem in the show. Instead of just jumping to the fight they allowed time for things to percolate a little, which gave David Lyons (Bass) some unusual breadth to act. He’s probably the best actor here, along with Elizabeth Mitchell (Rachel), but he’s spent most of the last thirty four episodes just smiling and killing people. »

Revolution, Ep. 2.14: “Fear and Loathing” in the glorious New Vegas

27 February 2014 7:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Revolution, Season 2, Episode 14: “Fear and Loathing”

Written by Anne Cofell Saunders and Matt Pitts

Directed by Liz Friedlander

Airs Wednesdays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

Can we all just take a moment to consider New Vegas as the absolute finest location in Revolution? The meta pop culture jokes are fantastic. The tiny little seeds of David Schwimmer reduced to performing as a cabaret act or Justin Timberlake squaring off against Joey Fatone in a deathmatch are exactly what the show needs more of to really establish its place in a greater context and carve out some glorious black humour at the same time.

New Vegas is also the heart of the action this week as Monroe, Connor, and Charlie take centre stage. Our weekly gripes about characters in captivity aside, Monroe was never dying here, given the Chekhov’s gun of Monroe trying to track him down, and nor »

Mark Pellegrino talks terrorizing super-powered teenagers on 'The Tomorrow People'

27 February 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Few actors craft a villain like Mark Pellegrino does: As Jacob, he tormented Jack and the other survivors over four seasons of "Lost"; as Lucifer, Pellegrino made the Winchesters’ lives a living hell on "Supernatural"; and on "Being Human", his dead Bishop continues to haunt poor Aidan. That’s not even mentioning his devilish roles on "Dexter" and "Revolution". But these days, viewers can catch Pellegrino hunting down and killing super-powered adolescents as Jedikiah Price on The CW drama "The Tomorrow People". The ruthless head of a secret organization called Ultra, Jedikiah wants nothing more than to annihilate the next step in evolution, these Tomorrow People, before they rise up and wipe out the inferior human race. However, those goals have become increasingly complicated: His nephew Stephen (Robbie Amell) is one of the Tomorrow People, and so is Jedikiah’s lover Morgan (Carly Pope). Plus, Ultra’s enigmatic top dog, »
