Hitman: Agent 47’s release date has been pushed back by six months. The original release date was February 27th, 2015, but the movie is now set to arrive on August 28th, 2015. There is no clear indication why the film has been delayed but the change of release date may mean a better chance at box office success.
Based upon the popular video game series, the film is a reboot to the Hitman movie that came out in 2007, which starred Timothy Olyphant as Agent 47. Paul Walker had originally been set to play the character in the reboot but after his tragic death last year Rupert Friend was cast instead.
Hitman: Agent 47 sees Aleksander Bach directing a cast that includes Rupert Friend (Homeland) as Agent 47 alongside Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), Hannah Ware (Boss), Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula), Dan Bakkedahl (Legit), Emilio Rivera (Sons of Anarchy), Rolf Kanies (The Countess), Ciaran Hinds »

No limit exists on zombie shows (although perhaps one should be imposed), but since “The Walking Dead” is out there — with a companion spinoff in the works — a new entry really ought to unearth something new. From that perspective, Syfy’s “Z Nation” has more guts than brains, essentially trotting out an old-fashioned wagon-train western, with a hardy band running a zombie gantlet trying to reach California. Along the way, the show serves up one doozy of a twist, and otherwise a lot of slavering, mindless flesh-eaters chasing our intrepid heroes. Think of it as the fast-food alternative to “Dead’s” more-flavorful dish.
Unwilling to waste even a minute on plot or story, the whole zombie apocalypse thing is tossed off in roughly 30 seconds. Chaos already reigns when a special-forces officer (Harold Perrineau) is assigned to transport precious cargo — a human host bearing a possible vaccine — to a facility in California, »

Despite passing on "Supernatural" spin-off series "Bloodlines," The CW president Mark Pedowitz still has hopes for a potential spin-off of the long-running show with discussions about the matter to take place in June and July.
Pedowitz told reporters today: "We believe that there's a real brand in Supernatural. We had six really good pilots this year. We felt that Supernatural [spinoff Bloodlines] just didn't quite get there, though we do know that people would come to it based on what we saw that night. I've already spoken to the creator and the studio. They know that we want to develop once more next season, a Supernatural spinoff. »

Fxx and FX are joining in the fun with announcing shows that will not be returning for 2014-2015. Fxx has confirmed Legit is over and will not be around for a third season. The comedy first aired on FX, but was switched to Fxx for a second season. While that was a sign that the show was not a success story, fans still held out for hope about a third possible season. Even the series star, DJ Qualls said that he hoped for a third season back in February. However, he has shown that he was just happy with what the show had given him.
FX is also axed their animated series Chozen. It premiered in January of this year and lacked the draw that they hoped for. Fox and their related channels have become a prime spot of adult, animated shows-but Chozen‘s serious story with attempt at humor fell flat. »

Is there any news on Les Revenants season 2?
News has been scarce on the Les Revenants front of late - that's The Returned for any folk less fancy than DS user Adamsk.
But here's what we do know - Channel 4 have acquired the rights to a second series and originally planned to air new episodes in late 2014. However, production on the next run of episodes has now been postponed - until September at least - meaning that The Returned won't return to its French home Canal+ until 2015.

Fxx has pulled the plug on Legit after two seasons. Tonight's episode will also serve as the comedy's series finale.
Legit revolves around a fictional version of Australian stand-up comic Jim Jeffries who's made it big on the comedy circuit in the Us and now wants to grow up. His friends and Venice, CA roommates are his divorced and alcoholic best friend, Steve (Dan Bakkedahl), and Steve's brother, Billy (DJ Qualls) who suffers from muscular dystrophy. Episodes are based on Jeffries' stand-up routines.
The series has struggled in the ratings, particularly once it moved from FX to Fxx. As a result, the cable channel has decided they don't want a third season.
In a post on his Facebook page, Jeffries wrote, "Legit has been cancelled. Sorry to everyone who was a fan of the show, please watch tonight it's the »
“Legit,” which starred Australian comedian Jim Jefferies as himself, lasted two seasons. Jefferies also created the comedy with Peter O’Fall0n. Along with Jefferies, the cast included DJ Qualls and Dan Bakkedahl.
The Danny McBride-produced “Chozen” has ended after just one season. It followed a rapper recently released from prison who attempts to revive his career. McBride also provided voice talents, along with Bobby Moynihan, Kathryn Hahn and Hannibal Buress. The series, which premiered in January, was a Rough House Pictures production and executive produced by Floyd County Productions, which also produces FX’s “Archer.”
Jefferies took to his Facebook page on Wednesday to break the news about “Legit.”

The cancellations aren’t surprising as both shows had been struggling in the ratings. Chozen was the first original series ordered for Fxx and centered on a white, gay rapper just out of prison, voiced by Bobby Moynihan. The series had its finale March 31.

Tonight’s season finale of Legit will be the Fxx comedy’s swan song. FX Networks confirmed today that the sophomore comedy starring Jim Jefferies has been canceled along with the FX freshman animated series Chozen. FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said last month that FX and Fxx would be doubling their original output in the next year and that the fate of Legit and Chozen would be decided after their current seasons. Chozen wrapped its 10-episode run March 31. Legit was renewed for Season 2 in March 2013, along with fellow FX comedies It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and The League, and all three were moved to the fledgling Fxx, along with late-night talker Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell, which has since been cancelled. Legit followed the often often raunchy adventures of Jefferies, an expat Aussie comedian living in Venice, CA, with his boozy, divorced best friend Steve (Dan Bakkedahl »

FX has chosen not to go forward with a second season of the animated comedy “Chozen,” while “Legit” will not go forward with a third season on Fxx. “Chozen,” which premiered in January, followed a gay white gangster rapper who's attempting to rebuild his career following his release from prison. The voice talent for the series (created by Grant Dekernion) included Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress, Danny McBride and Kathryn Hahn.

FX and younger-skewing network Fxx have lowered the ax on two half-hour series. At Fxx, scripted comedy Legit has been canceled after two seasons; and at FX, animated vehicle Chozen will not continue after its freshman run. For Legit, which never was a ratings driver, the sophomore season opened to less than half its audience from its 2013 debut, luring just 300,000 in February. The series -- created by Peter O'Fallon and Jim Jefferies and starring Jefferies, DJ Qualls and Dan Bakkedahl -- centered on a 30-something with muscular dystrophy and a party hound with an intellectual disability.

It's the biggest news of the day. Probably the week. Possibly the month. And maybe even the whole year thus far. Director J.J. Abrams has announced the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII. Returning from the original trilogy are Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Joining them are newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.
What we haven't gotten are any new story details or character breakdowns. Who are these new guys playing? And where is Billy Dee Williams? We've been able to piece together all the information we've had in the past two years to explain who we might see on screen next December, and in what capacity. None of this has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm.
John Boyega's name was first rumored just this past March, where »
