Watchmen teaser images feature masked police officers

As we know, HBO and Damon Lindelof’s upcoming Watchmen series is set to present a brand new original tale set in the world of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal superhero saga, rather than a straight up adaptation of the source material.

Given its present day setting, we’re not going to be seeing familiar faces such as Nite Owl, Rorschach, Silk Spectre and Ozymandias; however it seems there’s still going to be plenty of masks on display – not least those worn the police department of Tulsa, Oklahoma, as revealed by the latest Instagram teases released today.

Georgia Loser Threatens Local Film Industry

Although Stacey Abrams failed in her bid to become Governor of Georgia, her resistance to the loss, threatens the state of Georgia's film industry, impacting Georgian actors and crew, who make a living, taking care of their families through entertainment, with Abrams egging on a group of Hollywood B-actors, demanding a work boycott, without the permission of the Screen Actors Guild :

The film industry in Georgia was boosted substantially by tax incentives introduced in 2002 by Republican Governor Sonny Perdue, then strengthened by Perdue in 2008. In the fiscal year 2017 film/TV production had an economic impact in Georgia of $9.5 billion, overtaking California to be the Number One destination for film production in the Us.

According to the Georgia Department of Economic Development there are more than 5,000 individual technicians and other workers in Georgia, with the average number of local employees on a medium budget feature film 150-175 and on a larger budget production,

25 Characters Vampire Diaries Wants Us To Forget

Over the course of eight seasons, there were plenty of characters that came and went on The Vampire Diaries. Some were memorable and had meaningful connections or relationships with the main characters and also advanced the plot in entertaining and exciting ways, but that wasn't the case for everyone. In some cases, characters were so entwined in forgettable or lousy plots that you wanted to forget they existed. It even seemed like the show wanted to pretend they were never around.

Whether a character lost his or her life, or had left town, someone could have mentioned him or her at a later point in time. Instead, in many cases, it was “out of sight, out of mind,” which leads to the assumption that Tvd wanted it that way. Even when someone could have been alluded to, or that problem could have been addressed, he or she wasn't. Maybe doing

Here's Why You Already Know the Cast of Netflix's The Holiday Calendar

It's the most wonderful time of the year - that's to say, cheesy holiday movie time! Now that Netflix is rolling out Christmas flicks, we don't have to limit ourselves to November and December to vicariously eat Santa's cookies or go on sleigh rides. We can get in the holiday spirit whenever we want with instant streaming right at our fingertips.

One of the Winter movies that's been melting our hearts lately is the sweet romantic comedy The Holiday Calendar. It focuses on a struggling photographer named Abby who works at an uninspiring mall gig where she takes Santa studio pictures. Although her best friend Josh has feelings for her, her eyes are set on the dreamy Dr. Ty Walker, who appears too perfect to be true. On top of this drama, her grandmother's magical Advent calendar seems to be uncannily predicting her dates with Ty. If you want those gooey Christmas feelings,

Legacies Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Hope Is Not The Goal

If you thought Mystic Falls was deadly with the likes of the Mikaelsons, Katherine Pierce, and Kai, then you're probably wondering whether any of the villains that came before these mythical creatures would have stood a chance at winning a battle with them. 

The Vampire Diaries and The Originals were well-known for the stunning twists, but Legacies has taken the best elements of both shows that came before it, thrown in some distinctly different ingredients and blended it into a unique drama. 

On Legacies Season 1 Episode 4, the villain of the week was an enormous spider, and while the crumbs were cleverly plotted throughout the installment, I was still in disbelief when the thing appeared on the screen. 

CW shows have lower budgets than shows on the big four networks. That's what happens when shows have much lower ratings, but the CGI on that spider was nothing short of amazing.

Vampire Diaries: 20 Mistakes Fans Completely Missed

The series was a hit, hooking a massive loyal audience from the pilot episode. While fans kept following the love triangle that was Elena, Damon, and Stefan, the cast worked harder to bag an impressive number of awards.

Legacies Round Table: Was Jeremy Gilbert's Return a Dud?

Steven R. McQueen reprised his role of Jeremy Gilbert on Legacies Season 1 Episode 3, but was it worthwhile?

Below, TV Fanatics Celester Mejia, Justin Carreiro, and Paul Dailly discuss the encore, the knife being sent away and so much more. 

Alaric sent the knife away with Dorian. React!

Celester: Ugh, it won't stop the problems at school. It's very obvious that it was Alaric's purpose to that. Nevertheless, the knife is just the tip of the iceberg to what these people have to face.

With a thematic monster of the week, the show is kinda keeping us on our toes. Which is good. Will it be good for Dorian, no one's sure yet.

Justin: I agree with Celester, the knife is only just the beginning of the problems. Regardless of them hiding it and sending it away, the trouble is still going to make its way to the school and the characters.

Robert Zemeckis Returns To Science Fiction With ‘Project Blue Book’ & ‘Bios’

Robert Zemeckis Returns To Science Fiction With ‘Project Blue Book’ & ‘Bios’
Exclusive: Now this has a familiar ring to it: Robert Zemeckis is revisiting the 1950s to rewrite history with one new project and then he’s going back to the future to prove the power of love with a second project.

No, Zemeckis isn’t revving up the DeLorean for more Marty McFly sequels — however, the director of the Back to the Future trilogy (1985-1990) and Contact (1997) is making a relatively rare return to science fiction with the two projects. This time around, however, his foray into the genre is in a producing role. On Monday, Zemeckis talked about the two projects: Bios, the upcoming feature film; and Project Blue Book, a television series that premieres in January on History.

Bios, scheduled to start filming early next year, reunites Zemeckis with one of his most celebrated collaborators. “We’re producing a really magnificent science fiction project called Bios with Tom Hanks,

Harry Potter the TV Series: Is It Time to Make the Leap?

This weekend marked the premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second in a five-part prequel series to the Harry Potter franchise.

Since the books came out in 1997, the world created by J.K. Rowling has been everywhere from the big screen to Broadway. Is it time to bring Harry and friends to the small screen?

If the Potterverse continues on its current trajectory, a television version seems inevitable. As a massive fan of the movies, I have mixed feelings about an attempt. It is hard to picture anybody other the Emma Watson as Hermione or Daniel Redcliff as Harry.

However, it would not be the first time that a book that became a movie went on to be a television series. There is a grand tradition in television history of bringing books to life. Networks such as The CW and Freeform have a history of breathing new life into familiar franchises.

10 New Character Additions That Hurt Ya Franchises (And 10 That Saved Them)

A lot of the franchises that we’ve come to know and love have been derived from source material such as novels or comic books. Chief among these franchises is the young adult genre. Young adult material is also easy enough to adapt to the big or small screen as the characters are relatable to the target audience. The progression from younger themes to more adult-oriented themes is another reason why young adult franchises work.

You’ll be surprised to find out that popular shows like The Vampire Diaries and Roswell were originally in print form before they made their debuts onscreen. Along with these lesser-known books, the blockbuster novels like Twilight and Harry Potter have also been converted into film material. Some of the translations onto screens work, while others don’t.

These characters could have been well-received in their original novel or comic book format but their progression

The CW Confirms Midseason Schedule: What's on the Move?

The CW is the latest network to firm up its midseason plans, and there are some big changes on the horizon for fans of the network's most beloved series. 

Roswell, New Mexico is getting the best launching pad the network has to offer behind The Flash. 

It will bow Tuesday, January 15 in the 9/8c slot. Former time-period occupant, Black Lightning will make a move to Mondays out of Arrow effective January 21. 

This move also means that DC's Legends of Tomorrow will be bumped from the schedule following its fall finale until April.

The Monday move might spell good news for Black Lightning which has experienced the dreaded sophomore slump in the ratings department this year.

How Well Does the Legacies Cast Know Their Vampire Diaries History?

Tim Blake Nelson discusses his Watchmen casting

During an interview with Collider for his new film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Tim Blake Nelson shared a few words on his casting in HBO’s upcoming Watchmen series, where he is portraying a new character by the name of Looking Glass. Nelson revealed that initially, it was just a minor role, although showrunner Damon Lindelof decided to expand it once the actor was cast.

“I talked to [Lindelof] on the phone, and it was an evolving process for Watchmen, which in part is what makes Damon so interesting,” said Nelson. “He, like the Coens, is very much in control, but he also improvises, to a degree, with what he has. And so, I was approached for Watchmen by his (producing) partner, Tom Spezialy. I read it and I read my character, and I found him interesting, but one doesn’t want to leap into television without knowing where a character is headed.

Vampire Diaries: 10 Last-Minute Changes That Hurt The Show (And 10 That Saved It)

Television is one of the most collaborative mediums in which to tell a story. Books can be one person’s vision for where characters are going or what they’re doing, but in television, there is a room full of writers who bounce ideas off of each other, network executives and producers get involved, and even the actors can contribute ideas for their characters and their arcs. A TV show is no singular person’s vision – it’s a collective effort by a large group of people.

A lot of ideas get changed from the moment they are conceived to the moment they air on TV. There are table reads and rewrites and network notes. It’s possible that no show went through more changes from its original story plans than The Vampire Diaries. It was based on a series of novels by L.J. Smith, and it was constantly being

Hooded Justice featured in Watchmen set photos as new character rumours surface

Rather than a direct adaptation, Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen series is set to deliver a brand new story set in the world of the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic book series, albeit set in the present day. Nevertheless, it looks like we can expect to see plenty of callbacks and references to the original source material.

Spotted on set is an advertisement on the side of a bus for an in-universe TV show entitled American Hero Story: Minutemen, along with an image of Hooded Justice, the first ever masked adventurer in the Watchmen universe, and one of the founding members of the 1940s crime-fighting team The Minutemen.

Legacies and Its Monsters Are Filling the Buffy-Sized Hole In Our Hearts

Legacies and Its Monsters Are Filling the Buffy-Sized Hole In Our Hearts
We don't know how many times and ways we can say it: You need to be watching Legacies. If you're here, you're likely already watching it, but we're just doing our best to spread the word that it's so much fun, and so far is turning out to be a fun, funny, really well done show that we can't get enough of—and that is reminding us of some of our other favorite shows in the best ways. One thing we weren't so sure of after just seeing the pilot was the monster element, which had been promised but hadn't made an appearance quite yet. Legacies' parent shows, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, didn't really feature monsters in the way this show does, to the point...

Legacies Season 1 Episode 3 Review: We're Being Punked, Pedro

If you're enrolled at the Salvatore School, you're probably safer traveling across the Atlantic Ocean and heading to Hogwarts. 

Legacies Season 1 Episode 3 was another standout hour of this new CW drama series, which has successfully managed to bring the best components of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals to craft a rock-solid series. 

After the fire-breathing witch turned into a fire-breathing dragon on Legacies Season 1 Episode 2, the villain of the week on "We're Being Punked, Pedro" was much tamer. 

That's thanks in part to Lizzie doing the spell to keep it inside the walls of the school. Could you imagine the destruction it would have caused it made its way to the town square? 

There's no way Matt could spin that one into something positive. The residents of Mystic Falls are far too oblivious for my liking, but there's going to come to a point they are in the know about what's going on,

‘Legacies': Matthew Davis on Playing One Character Through Three Series, and Alaric’s Love Life

From executive producer Julie Plec, The CW series Legacies tells the story of the next generation of supernatural beings. Set at The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted, Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis) is in charge of helping to teach and nurture young vampires, werewolves and witches – including 17-year-old tri-brid Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), witch twins Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie Saltzman (Kaylee Bryant), vampire Mg (Quincy Fouse), newly triggered werewolf Rafael Waithe (Peyton Alex Smith) and the mysterious Landon Kirby (Aria Shahghasemi) – to become the heroes they want to …
