‘NYPD Blue’ Pilot at ABC Adds Rick Gomez in Series Regular Role
The “NYPD Blue” sequel pilot has cast Rick Gomez in the series regular role of Det. Craig Pettibone, Variety has learned.

Pettibone is studying law at night with the goal of passing the bar one day. Although he hasn’t passed it yet, he’s aggressive enough to be already drumming up clients by passing out his business card.

Gomez recently appeared in the ABC drama “The Crossing.” His other notable TV roles include stints on “Justified,” “Band of Brothers,” and “The Adventures of Pete & Pete.” On the film side, he has appeared in “Stand Up Guys,” “Ray,” “Sin City,” and “Transformers.”

He is repped by Apa.

Gomez’s casting comes just after Fabien Frankel was announced for the lead role of Theo Sipowicz, the son of the original series’ main character Andy Sipowicz. Other cast members in the pilot include Alona Tal, Bill Brochtrup, and Kim Delaney, the

Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin Plan a Heist in Trailer for ‘Going in Style’

After breaking Kickstarter records with his scrappy drama Wish I Was Here, and ruffling a few feathers in the process, Zach Braff is back in the director’s chair, and this time it’s for a Hollywood studio. Remaking Martin Brest’s 1979 film Going in Style, he’s brought together Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin, and the first trailer has landed today.

Scripted by Theodore Melfi (Hidden Figures), the film follows life-long friends who team up to rob a bank after they lose their pension. Judging from the trailer, fans of geriatric comedies such as Last Vegas and Stand Up Guys will find some comfort here, and for everyone else, well, use your judgement. Check out the trailer and poster below for the film also starring Joey King, Matt Dillon, and Ann-Margret.

New to Streaming: ‘Everybody Wants Some!!,’ ‘Fantastic Planet,’ ‘The Fundamentals of Caring,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Aferim! (Radu Jude)

Leave it to a Romanian director to make a movie that best expresses the dangers of the dyed-in-the-wool mindset of modern America. Culled partly from historical documents, Aferim! is a twisted history lesson whose messages transcend its insular time period of 19th-century Romania. Its story concerns Constable Costandin (Teodor Corban) and his son, Ionita (Mihai Comanoiu), who chase after a wanted Gypsy slave

Hulu New Releases: October 2018

Den Of Geek Staff Sep 21, 2018

We have a list of the new Hulu movies and shows arriving in October 2018.

Happy Huluween!

Hulu is blessed to have a name that sounds roughly enough like "Hallow." That means it's basically honor-bound to bring the heat for Halloween. Thankfully for the October 2018 new releases, Hulu is bringing us the spookies that we need. The Blair Witch Project, The Others, and Child's Play all arrive this month. And if you're looking for some more wholesome creepies, The Nightmare Before Christmas should do. And if that weren't enough, Hulu is debuting its own horror show - anthology series Into the Dark.

For those shamefully unable to get into the Halloween spirit, Hulu is bringing in some other fun film options. Galaxy Quest, Music and Lyrics, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective should help out with that.

Then of course, are the usual and typically deep TV offerings.

Obey! – Go See They Live Midnights This Weekend at The Hi-Pointe

“I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and I’m all out of bubblegum!”

They Live Midnights This Friday and Saturday (December 11th and 12th) at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave, St. Louis) as part of Destroy the Brain’s Late Night Grindhouse film series.

Remember when Al Pacino said that bubblegum line three years ago in Stand Up Guys? He said it with such gusto and confidence, I’m sure he had no idea that it was stolen verbatim from John Carpenter’s 1988 classic They Live. It bugged me then but Stand Up Guys is long forgotten while They Live lives on and has developed an ever-growing cult following.

Wondering what you world would be like if it were run by aliens that were trying to control your minds through subliminal messaging? Well, look no further than John Carpenter’s cult classic They Live, which is

Manglehorn movie review: old man bitter

Al Pacino fully arrives at old-coot-dom, ushered in by David Gordon Green in an apparent self-parody of his usual elegiacal visual style. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m hot and cold on David Gordon Green

I’m “biast” (con): …but mostly cold lately

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Manglehorn. It sounds like the site of a Victorian-era mountaineering disaster. But it’s only Al Pacino, who has now fully arrived at old-coot-dom, as a lonely Texas locksmith of that portentous name. His film does not live up to it in any way. Manglehorn is a wounded man with real pain in his heart, which we know because he says, “I’m a wounded man… I got real pain in my heart.” He pines for an absent woman named Clara, who may have left him to go save the world with her eyes, which we

Things Used To Be Better, "Once Upon A Time"

The mafia genre ain’t what it used to be, and that’s a tragedy. One of the oldest genres, the mob hit the big screen in a big way from Hollywood’s earliest moments, with the likes of Edward G. Robinson and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Scorsese became the unofficial, though widely acknowledged master of the genre in the 1990s, and The Sopranos took the family to the same screen and made television history. But since then, the genre has fallen from favor. Mafia films used to be a breeding ground for young, aggressive actors flexing their stuff: DeNiro, Pacino, Liotta, Pesci, and more. Today, the genre churns out the occasional flick, but the stars have, strangely, stayed the same. The “old” mafia movie, with has-beens and never-was returning the streets saw Pacino and Walken take on Stand Up Guys, and now it has Goodfellas’ own Paul Cicero, Paul Sorvino,

Watch: New Trailer for 'The Humbling' with Al Pacino

I want Al Pacino to be in a good movie. He is a great actor and deserves better than material he has been given over the past... who knows how long. From Stand Up Guys to 88 Minutes to Jack and Jill, I just feel so sad when a new Pacino movie comes out. His latest film is The Humbling, directed by Barry Levinson, which just got a new trailer. The film has played the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals to mixed reviews. Skimming what critics have been saying has me really confused. Some call it drama. Some call it a farce. Some say Pacino is boring. Some say it's his best performance in over a decade. I do not know what to make of it. The film will open the Austin Film Festival, so I will be seeing it there on October 23rd and will finally be able to judge for myself.

Dakota Fanning Joins American Pastoral

Dakota Fanning Joins American Pastoral
American literary titan Philip Roth, the Gojira to Don DeLillo’s Mothra, is one of those few famous writers largely untroubled by Hollywood. Until now, that is.

All seems well in Swede’s world until his daughter Merry (Fanning) joins the countercultural clamour of the time, signing up as a revolutionary and committing a fatal act of violence that throws all their lives into chaos.Noyce, who inherited the project from Fisher Stevens (Stand Up Guys), has been

Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

I have a curious habit, maybe you have it too, if you are a real movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.

A certain number of movies that I have seen and loved with all my heart were losers at the box office or were mercilessly slammed by critics, usually both. This doesn’t happen all the time, mind you. I know a bad movie when I see one. But several times I have seen a movie on opening day and loved it so much I was sure it would be a big hit and be loved by critics and film goers, nope, not all the time.

Here then is my own personal and highly eccentric top ten list, with some honorable mentions, of movies that lost out, yet I love them still, many of them desperately, hysterically, madly do I love these films, well anyway… let me tell you about it.

Blu-ray Release: Any Given Sunday 15th Anniversary

Blu-ray Release Date: Sept. 9, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $19.98

Studio: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

Al Pacino (Stand Up Guys) fights battles on and off the field in Oliver Stone’s (Savages) sports movie Any Given Sunday.

Not one of critics’ favorite films of three-time Academy Award-winning director Oliver Stone, Any Given Sunday nevertheless clicked with fans, grossing a tidy $75.5 million in theaters and a 74% moviegoer approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Our Disc Dish critics are on the more positive side for the film. While not a favorite, it’s a good one to have in your collection if you’re a fan of Pacino, Stone or definitely football. Even if you’re not into the actors and drama, the game footage is gorgeous.

Rated R, Any Given Sunday stars Al Pacino as Tony D’Amato, head coach for the fictional Miami Sharks football team, who won back-to-back championships four years ago. When the
