Cannes — Showtime’s limited series “Escape at Dannemora” marks a departure for Ben Stiller as a director, by design as he tackled eight hours of the stranger-than-fiction story of the 2015 prison break in upstate New York that led to a three-week manhunt.

During a Q&A after Monday’s world premiere screening of “Dannemora” at Mipcom, Stiller said he sought to evoke the gritty tension of some of his favorite 1970s crime dramas a la “Dog Day Afternoon,” “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3” and “Straight Time.” The drama starring Benicio Del Toro, Patricia Arquette and Paul Dano, revolves around two inmates

‘Iron Fist’: Why Getting Canceled Could Be the Best News Yet For Marvel’s Least-Favorite Superhero

When Netflix canceled “Marvel’s Iron Fist” — making history as the first-ever official Netflix cancelation of a Marvel show — it might have seemed not a moment too soon for the McU’s least-liked superhero. With his superpowers and inherited wealth, and with the show’s sloppy storytelling, it was never easy to empathize with Danny Rand (Finn Jones). However, now that Netflix has declared the end of his standalone show that disappointed audiences and critics, Danny may finally have a chance to shine.

After all, the best episode featuring the immortal Iron Fist isn’t an episode of “Marvel’s Iron Fist;” it’s the “Luke Cage” Season 2 episode “The Main Ingredient,” in which Danny strolls into Pop’s Barber Shop to spend some quality time with Luke (Mike Colter) as he contends with a personal crossroads.

In “The Main Ingredient,” Danny isn’t exactly a sidekick; after all, his

Whatever Happened to the Cast of “CSI Cyber?”

There is obviously a real problem with cyber crime and CSI Cyber was just as obviously created to bring this to light in the show, but looking at the cast it still feels like an attempt to put together a program with those that hadn’t yet reached super-stardom or those that had and were now seeking to remain relevant. In any case the actors used for the show were mostly proven and knew how to present themselves, but obviously people weren’t really buying into it quite as much since the show was canceled in 2016 after two seasons.
