Final Brightburn Trailer: Evil Has Found Its Superhero

Sony Pictures has released the final trailer for BrightBurn. This comes from producer James Gunn, the filmmaker behind the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. In this instance, he's taking on a character that has a lot of Superman-like qualities. Only this movie is posing the question, what if a superpowered alien being like Superman decided to be evil instead of a force for good? It's a question that has nothing but horrific answers, based on this final trailer.

This trailer, though relatively short, is easily the most terrifying of the bunch. This one really plays up the horror on display and showcases the hopelessness that would come along with just such a situation. Humanity isn't prepared to fight a being with Superman levels of strength and power. We're left to beg, plead and fight ever so hopelessly, armed with nothing more than guns and sheer terror. Even a mother's love

The Internet Is Losing It Over Game Of Thrones’ Controversial Finale

Well, that’s that ladies and gentlemen.

The end has now come for Game of Thrones and it’s left us with a ton to talk about. There were deaths, twists and more deaths, and nothing will ever be the same again. We won’t dive into too many spoilers in case you haven’t seen it yet – though if you haven’t, why are you here? – but it was a very, very interesting finale which certainly didn’t please everyone.

Then again, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss already warned us that not every single fan would be satisfied with what they’d put together and unfortunately, they were right. Initial reactions on Twitter seem pretty mixed, with a good chunk of people criticizing the episode and just as many still in shock that the series is now over. We know, we can’t believe it, either.

Anyways, below

Why now is the perfect time for you to watch M*A*S*H

M*A*S*H is a genuine television classic, one which still holds the record for the most watched moment of television when it finally ended its eleven season run. Its influence on the modern landscape of television is undoubted, and the affection in which it is held remains as steadfast as ever. Each year it is rediscovered by generations to whom the Korean War in which it is set is mostly forgotten. Today presents one such chance for discovery.

Today, forty-six years exactly after it was first aired, M*A*S*H returns to UK screens thanks to True Entertainment’s week-long celebration of the series. This may be your first chance to dive headlong into the chaotic world of the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and as we’ll see – there’s never been a better time.

As part of True Entertainment‘s plethora of M*A*S*H-related programmes they

Kelly, played perfectly by Mindy Kaling, was a perfect parody of a woman trying too hard to be popular. She was a great contrast to some of the other characters on the show, and her codependent relationship with Ryan Howard is also one of the more memorable, if horrible, relationships on the show. We’ve put together a list of 10 of Kelly Kapoor’s funniest and most relatable quotes.

Today in news we never could have predicted, Chris Rock is resurrecting the Saw franchise with a new spinoff film. Yep, that Chris Rock, and yep, that horrifying yet oddly addicting Saw franchise. The 54-year-old multihyphenate is teaming up with Lionsgate and a handful of the film series's Og creators, producers, and directors to put his own fresh spin on the storyline while still revolving around John Kramer, the main character also known as "Jigsaw" or the "Jigsaw Killer."

Rock, who has reportedly been a fan of Saw since the first 2004 film, approached Lionsgate with the idea after conceiving a way to bring Jigsaw's tortuous ways back to the silver screen. While announcing the news on Thursday, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Chairman Joe Drake said, "When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that reimagines and spins off the

Mindy Kaling On How ‘Late Night’ Was Inspired By Her Own ‘Diversity Hire’ Experience & The Importance Of Holding The Door Open For Others — Deadline Disruptors

Mindy Kaling On How ‘Late Night’ Was Inspired By Her Own ‘Diversity Hire’ Experience & The Importance Of Holding The Door Open For Others — Deadline Disruptors
Mindy Kaling was just 24 when she became both the first woman and the first person of color to join the writing staff of The Office. 14 years later, this January, her production company Kaling International sold the film she wrote, Late Night, in a record deal with Amazon at Sundance. She also just had her newest film project snapped up at auction by Universal, inked an overall deal with Warner Bros. TV, and has a 10-episode order from Netflix for her new show. All this aside from extensive acting achievements and two New York Times bestselling memoirs.

Not only has Kaling proven that getting a seat at that first table is what a talented creative needs and deserves, but her work has powerfully referenced the underserved Indian-American experience, in shows like The Mindy Project, NBC’s Champions, and now in these upcoming films, one of which tells the story of a

Upfronts 2019: An Englishman In New York On The Long, Strange Trip To The Network Parade

Upfronts 2019: An Englishman In New York On The Long, Strange Trip To The Network Parade
“I don’t take coffee, I take tea, my dear,” Sting sang back in 1987. I, however, at this point will take any source of caffeine there is to power through my first upfronts.

It’s been a wild ride, or a long, strange trip, as the CW president Mark Pedowitz put it.

As an international TV reporter, I’ve long covered the La Screenings, chasing global buyers through the streets of Hollywood to find out what U.S. shows they’re keen on as the studios roll out the red carpet. But this week I’ve seen how the sausage is made from the network side.

Speaking to upfronts veterans, I get the impression that while, in large parts, it’s remarkably similar to previous years, with talk of which procedural is getting which slot and whether single-camera or multi-camera comedies are more in-demand this year, it’s clear that

Upfronts 2019: Networks Prep for Big Changes, as Streaming and Synergy Make Their Mark

The Upfronts are over, so now the impact of the Upfronts can be assessed — well, it can start to be assessed. Though the past week revealed many new directions for dozens of networks, services, and at least one “start-up,” how those choices affect the companies themselves won’t be known for months and months and how they affect the TV landscape may take even longer. Here are three key takeaways from the 2019 Upfronts:

Streaming Shake-Up

There’s a reason Netflix doesn’t have an Upfronts presentation and Hulu does — one is ad-supported, and the other is not. Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has nothing to pitch advertisers because he’s not dependent on them, and the largely unspoken truth at recent Upfront presentations is that more and more networks are keeping mum until their streaming plans solidify. This was more apparent than usual at the 2019 Upfronts, as the streaming

Melissa McCarthy stepped in as guest host on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. McCarthy expressed her love for musician Billie Eilish on the show, and said she would love to collaborate with the singer at some point.

“My dream is really to go on tour with her, or just lay down a track – I think that’s what the kids are saying now,” she quipped. “I think every super-cool seventeen-year-old musician needs a 48-year-old Midwestern mother of two as her hype man.”

New CW TV Shows Will No Longer Automatically Go to Netflix

Kayti Burt May 16, 2019

The CW's choice not to renew its deal with Netflix means new shows like Batwoman, Nancy Drew, and Katy Keene could stream elsewhere.

The CW and Netflix just broke up. Since 2011, the broadcast network has had an output deal with the streaming service that basically ensured that, shortly following the end of a broadcast season, the entire season would be available to stream via Netflix. The deal was mutually beneficial and made it possible for a struggling CW to survive in a changing marketplace.

Deadline is reporting that The CW has chosen not to renew its output deal with Netflix (the deal was renewed once in 2016), which means the streaming service will have to bid on streaming distribution rights for new shows alongside other streaming services.

Brightburn Clip Pits the Indestructible Antihero Against a Lawn Mower

Sony Pictures has released a brand new clip from BrightBurn. Last year, we got word that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was producing a very mysterious horror movie of sorts. Eventually, we found out this little project of his is actually a horrific take on a Superman-esque character that essentially asks, what if Superman was evil instead of good? This clip on its own is enough to make anyone wonder just how bad such a situation could get, and it's not for the squeamish.

The clip sees the kid in question who is clearly discovering that he actually has some powers that people don't have. We see an overturned lawnmower, blades still running at full speed. The kid slowly approaches the lawnmower and, without any dialogue, it's clear what he's thinking; "what happens if I put my hand in it?" Not to spoil it, but there are surely

Mark Proksch (‘What We Do in the Shadows’): Vampire comedy is ‘Friends’ but with people that want to kill you’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
When Mark Proksch first saw “What We Do in the Shadows” (2014) at a film festival prior to its release, he admits to being “so jealous of how smart the idea was, and how well they executed it.” He considers that the highest form of praise: “being so jealous about how smart it is you’re angry you didn’t come up with it.” So he leapt at the opportunity to star in a new FX series based on the original movie. Watch our exclusive video interview with Proksch above.

The Office: 10 Best Opening Scenes Ranked

One of the best reoccurring things about the American version of The Office is the cold open at the beginning of almost every episode.

‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ cast reminisces at Netflix Fysee event: ‘I miss us’ [Watch]
“I miss us,” said Carol Kane, reminiscing with her “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” co-stars Tituss Burgess, Ellie Kemper and Jane Krakowski, plus creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock during a Netflix Fysee event in New York City on May 8. She was visibly moved when discussing her experience on the Netflix series, which premiered its last six episodes in January.Watch them above.

Kane felt especially lucky to have appeared on “Kimmy Schmidt” given her past experience with classic TV comedy. She won two Emmys for her role as Simka Dahblitz on “Taxi” (1982-1983), and she didn’t expect lightning to strike twice in her career. “I had the fortune to work with [‘Taxi’ creator] Jim Brooks and the greatest television writers,” she explained. “I certainly never thought that a second thing would come my way, where holy shit I’m getting to work with the great writers again.”

‘Killer Weekend’ VOD Review

Stars: Mark Heap, Sean Verey, Danny Kirrane, Perry Fitzpatrick, Ewen MacIntosh | Written and Directed by Ben Kent

[Note: With the film now finally available on VOD in the UK, here's a reposting of our Frightfest review of Fubar, now retitled and released under the Frightfest Presents... banner as Killer Weekend]

Us Brits do comedy horror pretty well. Of course, everyone around the world knows about Shaun of the Dead but there’s along list of other great films in the sub genre. From Lesbian Vampire Killers to Severance to Doghouse to Inbred to Stitches to Sightseers. These cover all different types of comedy and horror too, so Killer Weekend does have plenty of competition (or good company).

As well as comedy horror, people from Britain are also known for being pretty good at ‘Stag do’s’ (bachelor parties) and Killer Weekend mixes both of these together. A group of friends and the father of the bride embark on a paint-ball war against the undead only things don’t go as

NBC Streaming Service: Release Date, Cost, News

Kayti Burt May 13, 2019

Will NBC's streaming service get classic TV shows like The Office back from the subscription services they're licensed to?

The streaming service field is becoming more fractured, as more and more media companies break from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu in favor of creating their own streaming services.

While Disney's Disney+ and Apple's TV upcoming streaming service may be the most talked-about right now, NBCUniversal—the Comcast Corp. division that owns NBC, MSNBC, USA and the Universal Pictures movie studio—is also planning to launch their own streaming service, and guests at today's upfront event got some more information about what to expect from the service.

Will The Office be on NBC's streaming service?

According to Deadline, NBCUniversal "gave the strongest hint yet" that existing TV shows like the much-beloved The Office will be available on their streaming service. Here's what NBCUniversal advertising boss

NBCUniversal Touts Scale, Brand Safety and Familiar Faces at Upfront (Analysis)

  • Variety
The message couldn’t have been clearer from the stage at Radio City Music Hall on Monday morning, where NBCUniversal kicked off upfront week with an omnibus presentation covering its broadcast and cable networks.

Linda Yaccarino, NBCU’s chairman of advertising sales and client partnerships, told the assembled advertisers and media buyers that NBCUniversal is preparing a bold foray into the new frontier of streaming but in a configuration where sponsors are welcome. NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, targeted for debut in the U.S. by mid-2020, will use new technology to present TV the old-fashioned way: brought to you by America’s blue-chip advertisers.

“While other companies are pushing advertisers out, we’re bringing you in,” Yaccarino declared in her opening remarks.

As more high-end TV shifts to commercial-free streaming platforms a la Netflix, NBCU sees an opening to differentiate its service by making it largely free, supported by advertising rather than monthly subscription fees.
