Godzilla: King of the Monsters and The Six Billion Dollar Man pushed back, Doctor Sleep to open in January 2020

We’re going to have to wait a little longer before we get to see Godzilla squaring off against Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah, as Warner Bros. has announced that it has pushed back the release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters from its original date of March 22nd 2019 to May 31st 2019.

The move takes the legendary kaiju away from the likes of Captain Marvel (March 8th), Dumbo (March 29th) and Shazam! (April 5th), and it will now open four weeks after Marvel’s sure-to-be-massive superhero sequel Avengers 4.

Along with the Godzilla change, Warner has also announced that the Mark Wahlberg-headlined The Six Billion Dollar Man has been pushed back over a year and will now open on June 5th 2020 (little surprise given that it lost its director earlier this month), while the Stephen King

Critics Pick the New Fall Shows They Want to Succeed — IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: What’s the one new fall or midseason broadcast TV show announced at upfronts that you would like to survive?**

**This is a snap judgment based on anything you like — title, pedigree, star, whether you’ve seen the pilot yet or not.

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Uproxx

Between “Parks and Rec,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “The Good Place,” and “The Office”, Mike Schur is as creatively reliable a name as there is in the comedy business right now. “Abby’s” isn’t one of his creations (it’s from “New Girl” and “Superstore” vet Josh Malmuth), but as we’ve also seen with “Master of None,” Schur has excellent taste in what shows to put his stamp on, and both the premise (a young woman runs an unlicensed bar in her

You're Not Alone If You Think Mr. Porter on 13 Reasons Why Looks Familiar

Image Source: Netflix

While the cast of 13 Reasons Why is mostly made up of relatively new or unknown actors (at least before season one launched them to fame), there's one face that probably seems really, really familiar: Mr. Porter. As one of the notorious 13 reasons high school student Hannah Baker chooses to commit suicide in the first season, the Liberty High School guidance counselor interacts with many of the characters as they navigate the aftermath of Hannah's death. If you have feelings about Mr. Porter that you want to get off your chest, direct your questions to actor Derek Luke.

There's a good chance you've seen the 42-year-old star before, especially if you're a fan of inspiring sports movies. In Glory Road, he pops up as Bobby Joe Hill, and in 2004's Friday Night Lights, he plays running back James "Boobie" Miles. If music-themed biopics are more your speed, you might recognize him from Notorious,

NBC Programming Vet Vernon Sanders Named Amazon’s Co-Head Of Television

Amazon Studios chief Jennifer Salke has tapped former fellow NBC executive Vernon Sanders to serve as the streamer’s co-head of television. Vernon will oversee all of Amazon Prime Video’s creative and production units alongside Albert Cheng, who was named co-head of TV in April.

Sanders, like Salke, worked at NBC before arriving at Amazon, and the two collaborated closely for about seven years. Sanders most recently served as the network’s Evp of current programming, per Variety, where he worked on flagship series like 30 Rock, The Office, and Friday Night Lights. Sanders departed NBC in November and signed a production deal with sister studio Universal Television, where he was set to executive produce Steven Spielberg’s forthcoming Amazing Stories reboot for Apple -- though Sanders has departed that project in light of his appointment.

Amazon Grabs Another NBC Exec: Vernon Sanders Named Co-Head of Television

Longtime NBC executive Vernon Sanders will reunite with his former colleague Jennifer Salke at Amazon Studios. Salke has tapped Sanders as co-head of television, where he’ll partner with TV co-head Albert Cheng and oversee Amazon Prime Video’s TV creative and production units.

Hawk And Dove Come To Blows In New Titans Set Video

Titans, the upcoming live-action show focusing on the adolescent hero team, is coming to the DC Universe streaming service later this year. Alongside the likes of younger vigilantes Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly will star as Hawk and Dove, a couple of bird-themed heroes who are also a romantic item.

As this new set video shows, though, being both crime-fighting and domestic partners causes some extra problems. In the clip below, it seems that Ritchson and Kelly are prepping for a fight scene between Hank Hall and Dawn Granger. Apparently, they don’t just argue when they’re having a lovers’ tiff like normal people but instead, have a fist fight in the middle of the street.

Fall TV 2018: 13 Stars to Watch, From Jay Hernandez to Madeleine Mantock (Photos)
Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery – “Charmed” (CW)

The CW’s “Charmed” reboot features three new faces as the Charmed Ones. Mantock previously starred in AMC’s “Into the Badlands” as Veil. Diaz has had roles in shows like “Room 104” and “The Breaks.” Jeffery has appeared on “Shades of Blue” and “The X-Files.” But starring as three witch sisters in “Charmed” — which The CW is hoping to be a successful drama with its Sunday night time slot after “Supergirl” — will put these ladies front and center.

Daniel Ezra – “All American” (CW)

Ezra has previously appeared on series like “The Missing” and “Prime Suspect 1973.” His character Spencer is the new face of Beverly High football — and Ezra is the new face of Greg Berlanti’s high school drama that gives us “Friday Night Lights” vibes. Are we looking at the next Michael B. Jordan?

All American Trailer: The CW's Answer to Friday Night Lights?

All American looks like a show that was made for a premium cable network like HBO.

The series does not look like The CW would usually air, and that's a good thing.

Of course, it has the adolescent teenagers, but it also has a string of exciting plots.

The official logline reads:

When a rising high school football player from South Central L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, the wins, losses and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds — Compton and Beverly Hills — begin to collide. Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger.

The cast includes Daniel Ezra, Taye Diggs, Samantha Logan, Bre-z, Greta Onieogou, Monet Mazur, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian and Karimah Westbrook.

If you're a fan of either Friday Night Lights, The O.C. or 90210, then we're sure this show is going to be one of the ones you

Connie Britton Says Her Show 'Smilf' Is "Dead on" When It Comes to Motherhood (Exclusive)

In the new issue of Closer Weekly, Connie Britton opens up about why she couldn't turn down being a part of Showtime's Smilf. With roles on shows ranging from Friday Night Lights to Nashville, Connie has always been busy, but now she’s been juggling parts on two current series, Fox’s drama 9-1-1 and Smilf, with her job as a single mom to son Eyob, 7. Connie says she identifies with creator-star Frankie Shaw's take on single motherhood. "Frankie's commentary about some of the ways you feel confined as a single mom is just dead-on," Connie, 51, exclusively tells Closer. "I pull from my own experience." Connie and Frankie.

Will Michael B. Jordan win his first Emmy for ‘Fahrenheit 451’ in the wake of his ‘Black Panther’ success?

Will Michael B. Jordan win his first Emmy for ‘Fahrenheit 451’ in the wake of his ‘Black Panther’ success?
Michael B. Jordan is an Emmy contender this year for his leading role in the dystopian HBO telefilm “Fahrenheit 451,” which premieres on May 20. He plays Guy Montag, a “fireman” whose job is to burn books. The actor is coming off of a string of big-screen successes, including “Black Panther” earlier this year, and it’s not uncommon for an actor to leverage a recent movie hit into an Emmy victory. Will Jordan be the latest?

Jordan has risen in prominence thanks in large part to his collaborations with director Ryan Coogler. They first teamed up for the critically acclaimed independent film “Fruitvale Station” (2013) about an unarmed black man shot and killed by police in the Bay Area. Then they scaled up with “Creed” (2015), a modestly budgeted “Rocky” sequel in which Jordan played the son of former Rocky rival Apollo Creed. That film was also admired by critics, and it

Connie Britton Leaving '9-1-1' After One Season — So What's Next for the Actress?

Last year was tough for many of us, and a relative "Brittonlessness" on our TV and movie screens certainly didn't help! We know a lot of you are wondering what Connie Britton is doing today following her Nashville departure, so we're here to give you the latest on the actress. However, we're sad to tell you that she's already left her star role in the new Fox procedural 9-1-1, produced by her old American Horror Story bosses, Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchuk.

Trailer For Ridley Scott and Matt Reeves' Vampire Series The Passage

Fox has released the first trailer for their upcoming Ridley Scott-produced vampire series The Passage. The show is based on the book trilogy written by Justine Cronin, and it has a talented creative team behind bringing it to life. The series is also being produced by Matt Reeves and it's being written by Liz Heldens (Friday Night Lights). The series definitely looks like something worth checking out! I like what I'm seeing in this trailer and it's good to see Saved By The Bell's Mark-Paul Gosselaar in another big series! Here's the synopsis:

The Passage focuses on Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race.
