‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘I Am The Night’ Director Patty Jenkins Makes Her Own Rules

‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘I Am The Night’ Director Patty Jenkins Makes Her Own Rules
In Hollywood, playing by the rules doesn’t cut it, especially as they keep changing. After directing her 2003 feature debut “Monster,” which won Charlize Theron the Best Actress Oscar, Patty Jenkins was inundated with offers to direct. They just weren’t what she was looking for. And when she decided to direct television for money – and movies for love – her advisers counseled her against it. But she helped to launch “Arrested Development” on Fox and AMC mystery series “The Killing,” and landed an Emmy nomination and DGA win for that 2011 pilot.

When Marvel changed direction on a superhero movie Jenkins had agreed to make, and proceeded with “Thor” instead, Jenkins withdrew as director. She knew that the odds were not in her favor, and should the movie not come out well, she’d be held more accountable than any male director. Things worked out: she had more passion for and

One Of Rick’s Closest Allies May Be Killed Off In The Walking Dead’s Mid-Season Finale

Season 8 of The Walking Dead was always going to herald a number of huge deaths.

It’s part and parcel of the show’s DNA, after all, and there is perhaps no other series on television where the tension is so relentless…so omnipresent. One false move or careless error – or, in the case of Abraham and Glenn, a bat-wielding sadist – and your favorite character is a goner, reduced to nothing more than food for the passing walkers.

Yes, AMC’s apocalyptic flagship has delivered some truly shocking deaths throughout the past 100 episodes, but if the fan forum Spoiling Dead Fans is to be believed, season 8 is about to unveil the most devastating one yet. First spotted by the folks at Spoiler TV, this report suggests one of Rick’s closest allies will bite the bullet during November’s mid-season finale, and though the veracity of Sdf’s theory is still up for debate,

’13 Reasons Why’ Stars On How Tom McCarthy and Gregg Araki Set the Tone for Netflix’s Gripping Teen Suicide Drama

’13 Reasons Why’ Stars On How Tom McCarthy and Gregg Araki Set the Tone for Netflix’s Gripping Teen Suicide Drama
It sounds like an unenviable task: Make a show about suicide that handles the subject matter sensitively, while also being entertaining. Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” strikes that delicate balance, and according to its young stars Dylan Minnette (“Prisoners”) and Katherine Langford, all credit goes to the powerhouse creative team behind this gripping drama.

Based on Jay Asher’s young adult novel and created by Tony-winning playwright Brian Yorkey (“Next to Normal”), with “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy as executive producer, “13 Reasons Why” tells the story of 16-year-old Hannah Baker (Langford), a vibrant young girl who shocks everyone who knew her when she takes her own life. In lieu of a suicide note, Hannah leaves behind 13 cassette tapes, with each side detailing a reason and person who led her to suicide. As the tapes get passed around to the people named, a shy boy named Clay Jensen (Minnette), who had a crush on Hannah,

Bill Paxton Tribute: The Man Behind The Actor

I knew Bill Paxton for a couple of decades. I can’t remember at what party we were at (this was back in 1990 or 1991; it was before his indie success One False Move), but we hit it off. We were both Catholic, both grew up in small towns and ended up out here. We both felt like fish out of water in Hollywood. Anyway, that’s how our friendship started. Years later, we would start talking about John F. Kennedy. My earliest memory had to do with John F. Kennedy’s funeral…

Peter Travers on Bill Paxton: A Modest Actor of Immodest Gifts

Peter Travers on Bill Paxton: A Modest Actor of Immodest Gifts
I met Bill Paxton in 1995. On a visit to the Rolling Stone offices in midtown Manhattan, he looked in awe at our cover wall, featuring iconic images of rock royalty. An intern, passing by, stopped to stare at him. "Your face looks familiar," she said.

"I've been in a couple of movies," Paxton said, good-naturedly.

The intern wasn't buying it. "Which ones?"

"Apollo 13 ... it just came out, I'm an astronaut in that one."

"Which astronaut?" the youngster prodded, skeptical to the last.
