The Blacklist Season 5 Finale Recap: Whose Bones Are in That Bag?

The Blacklist Season 5 Finale Recap: Whose Bones Are in That Bag?
To paraphrase Se7en‘s Det. David Mills: “What’s in the bag?!”

It’s a question that The Blacklist viewers have hoped to get answered for a full year, ever since Mr. Kaplan dug up a mysterious suitcase before jumping to her death in last May’s finale. (At some point, the suitcase became a duffel bag, because The Blacklist is nothing if not practical.)

We’ve known for a year that the duffel bag contains human bones, but the identity of the poor skeleton inside it has been kept a secret — just the way Red wanted. But on Wednesday’s Season 5 ender,

Gwyneth Paltrow's SE7EN Halloween Costume is Too Perfect

Over the weekend, Gwyneth Paltrow posted a photo of herself and her boyfriend Brad Falchuk in their Halloween costumes and it's perfection. This could very well be one of the best celebrity Halloween costumes ever!

The costumes are themed after David Fincher's Se7en, which Paltrow co-starred in. She played Tracy Mills in the film, the wife of Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt). 

During the climatic finale, we learn that Tracy was murdered by John Doe (Kevin Spacey) and her head was put in a box and dropped off in the middle of a field, where her husband David was waiting. This is the point where he utters the classic line... "What's in the box?!" I included that scene for you to watch below.

Well, as you can see, Paltrow's costume pays tribute to this iconic scene and she put her head in the box for Halloween. Her boyfriend is dressed up as John Doe.

Video: David Fincher storyboarded a very different ending to ‘Se7en’

It has been 21 years since Se7en was released in cinemas. Can you believe that? Arguably David Fincher‘s best movie was one of the best films of the nineties and is memorable for that ending – one that once viewed can never be forgotten. Well, did you know that Fincher actually storyboarded a completely different ending for the Brad Pitt/ Morgan Freeman crime movie?

When retiring police Detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) tackles a final case with the aid of newly transferred David Mills (Brad Pitt), they discover a number of elaborate and grizzly murders. They soon realize they are dealing with a serial killer (Kevin Spacey) who is targeting people he thinks represent one of the seven deadly sins. Somerset also befriends Mills’ wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), who is pregnant and afraid to raise her child in the crime-riddled city.

He did, and the internet has it now. Posted to YouTube,

'Seven': 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About David Fincher's Classic

Two decades later, we're still totally creeped out by "Seven."

The seven-deadly-sins-inspired serial killer thriller, which opened 20 years ago this week (on September 22, 1995), helped put director David Fincher on the map and marked a career milestone for stars Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Spacey. What's more, from its jittery opening credits to its grim shocker of an ending, "Seven" has become a template for how to make a dark, suspenseful crime drama.

Despite its many imitators, however, "Seven" maintains its secrets, from who almost starred in it to how it accomplished its unsettling effects to the softened ending that was almost tacked on. Here are some of those secrets. (Warning: Spoilers follow, though, c'mon, the movie's 20 years old.)

1. "Seven" screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker has a cameo. He's the corpse seen at the beginning of the movie.

2. Walker wrote the screenplay, his first, while living in New York City and

Scene-by-scene: 9 great moments from Gone Girl director David Fincher

Scene-by-scene: 9 great moments from Gone Girl director David Fincher
Gone Girl review: Rosamund Pike a revelation in David Fincher thriller

David Fincher brings Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl to the big screen this week, and long-standing fans of the filmmaker will be delighted to know the thriller is up there with his very best.

Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as a couple whose marriage severely hits the rocks, is the tenth feature in Fincher's 20-year career. Digital Spy picks out some of the highlights from his previous nine films below...

1. Alien 3's death of Ripley (1992)

Fincher himself is no big fan of his directorial debut Alien³, a blockbuster that experienced a turbulent production and was ultimately disowned by the man calling the shots behind the camera. That said, it featured a watershed moment for the franchise - Ripley sacrificing herself while a Xenomorph bursts through her chest, desperate to escape certain death.

2. Seven's "What's in the box?

From 'Mork & Mindy' to 'The Crazy Ones': The TV legacy of the late, great Robin Williams
Last summer, at a press conference to promote what would turn out to be the final TV series of his career, CBS' "The Crazy Ones," Robin Williams was asked what it was like to spend decades walking into rooms where everyone expected him to be instantly, wickedly funny. "I think the pressure to be funny all the time, it’s like, 'Dance funny man, you know?'" he admitted. "I think sometimes there’s that pressure." In a too-short life that was often wildly successful and at times — up until his apparent suicide at age 63 — deeply troubled, Williams coped with that pressure to be funny at a moment's notice with remarkable grace, energy and talent. Even if we leave out his brilliant, Oscar-winning film career and focus solely on his TV work, so many scenes and jokes come instantly to mind: his star-making turn as daffy alien Mork from Ork,

Brad Pitt turns 50: 10 of the actor's defining career moments
2013 has been something of a vintage year for Brad Pitt – his troubled zombie thriller World War Z became a smash hit against all odds, and he co-produced Steve McQueen's critically acclaimed Oscar frontrunner 12 Years a Slave.

As the actor celebrates his 50th birthday, Digital Spy takes a look back over 10 key moments from his on-screen career.

Brad Pitt turns 50: 11 vintage pictures to celebrate

1. This Pringles advert from 1989

Because... wow. Pitt had a few early roles on the small screen – most notably in 21 Jump Street, Dallas and short-lived Fox high school drama Glory Days – but we feel 'Once You Pop', directed by Lawrence Bridges, really sums up the first era of his career. That era being "the eighties".

This year's The Counsellor reunited Pitt with Ridley Scott, the director who gave him his first break on the big screen in 1991's iconic womance. After Billy Baldwin dropped

Chris Lilley's Ja'mie: Private School Girl receives conflicted reviews

  • IF.com.au
Character actor specialist, Chris Lilley, initially introduced audiences to his over-achieving, relentlessly self-absorbed and superficial private school girl character, Ja.mie King on 2005.s We Could Be Heroes, as one of six unlikely contenders for Australian of the Year. He then plunged her into the unchartered territory of public school on his next series, Summer Heights High in 2007. Now, Ja.mie is the centre of attention in Ja.mie: Private School Girl. A co-production of ABC, BBC and HBO, the series premiered last night on ABC1 to a total audience, inclusive of regional ratings, of 1.27 million. Memorable quotes and buzz words from the show were already trending on Twitter shortly after the first episode aired; particularly the term .quiche. which Ja.mie uses to describe someone who is especially attractive, or in her words, .better than hot..

Thn Top Ten: Twistin’ The Fright Away!

This week sees the arrival of head-twisting home-invasion horror You’Re Next.

Review: Showtime's 'Ray Donovan' a fixer story with flaws
The late David Mills wrote for some of the best dramas of the last 20 years, including "The Wire," "Treme," "NYPD Blue," "Homicide" and "ER." But before that he was a journalist and a critic, and he always had a tendency to look at his new industry from the viewpoint of his old one, and to have an unyielding standard for shows that aspired to play in the same ballpark as the ones he'd been lucky enough to work for. When I was a younger critic, I would often grow enamored of some new show because of its creative pedigree, or...
