Monday TV Ratings: THE VOICE, DANCING WITH THE STARS Split a Win

The Monday TV ratings for March 30th are in; here are some of the highlights (with the main theme being "even when you win, you lose"): The Voice at 8 p.m. helped NBC win the night with adults in the key 18-49 demographic, bringing in a 3.2 rating and 11.67 million viewers (even though it was down 6 percent from last week). Dancing with the Stars, in the same timeslot, came in second ratings-wise, but gave ABC the boost with overall viewers, […]

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES Set for February 19, 2016

After years of languishing in development hell, I’m still surprised that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actually got made, let alone that it’s coming to theaters. Screen Gems has announced Burr Steers’ horror-comedy, based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will finally open on February 19, 2016. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the […]

Hans Zimmer and Christopher Nolan on Crafting the Film’s Score in Exclusive INTERSTELLAR Blu-ray Clip

One of the most fruitful film collaborations of the past decade isn’t a union between an actor and a director or a screenwriting duo—it’s a filmmaker and a composer. Over the course of five films, Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer have crafted some of the most memorable movie scores in recent memory, from the unnerving The Dark Knight to the bombastic Inception, and their latest collaboration might just be their best yet. The sci-fi epic Interstellar boasts an original score that matches the ambition […]

THE FLASH-ARROW Spin-Off Taps DOCTOR WHO’s Arthur Darvill for Rip Hunter

Here’s more news from the still-unnamed The Flash-Arrow spin-off, which will feature a gaggle of super heroes that somehow (SOMEHOW!) have not yet been involved in the already over-stuffed DC universe. Deadline reports that Arthur Darvill, the young British actor who many may know from his recent work on Doctor Who, is set to portray time-traveling lumberjack-type Rip Hunter in the series, which will be helmed by Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Marc Guggenheim. Of course, its unclear […]

Jack Black Stages a High School Reunion in THE D TRAIN Trailer

IFC Films has released The D Train trailer online. The indie dramedy stars Jack Black as a desperate man trying to organize a high school reunion who courts a former classmate (James Marsden) in the hopes that his celebrity may be enough to draw in other alums. For a film that stars Jack Black and James Marsden as well as Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor, the premise is remarkably low stakes even though the film presents its premise as outrageous. […]

THE 33 Trailer: The Emotional Story of the Chilean Mining Disaster

It wasn't all that long ago -- just back in 2010 -- when the world became enraptured by the plight of 33 Chilean miners who became trapped in a 121-year-old San José copper-gold mine for 69 days. After its conclusion, the story seemed naturally made for film. There were many heroes involved in keeping the miners alive and in the rescue, leading to an almost unbelievably triumphant happy ending to what began as pure horror. The 33, directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen […]

Is This a Sample of Jared Leto’s Joker Voice for SUICIDE SQUAD?

Jared Leto is a multitasker. The actor is currently on tour with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, and during shows it looks like he’s testing out his Joker voice for Suicide Squad. Granted, an audience that shows up to his concert is going to love whatever he does unless it’s “DURRR, I’M THE JOKER HARDY HAR HAR." If this is his Joker voice, it sounds like he’s not going too far off the beaten path. Basically, he’s descending his […]

NEW GIRL Renewed for Season 5, John Cho Joins in Guest Role

Bubble-watchers can relax, as Fox has picked up New Girl for a fifth season (while that season is already in production, it's worth noting). Also, for those curious, Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy will not be written into the script, so there will be no baby mama drama. David Madden, President of Entertainment at Fox said of the renewal, Four seasons in, NEW GIRL continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television. The writing is razor-sharp, the […]

Choose 1 of 4 Amazing AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON IMAX Posters for Ticket Buyers

It’s become standard practice for studios to churn out the most bland, unimaginative posters possible for their films, but then release a really gorgeous one for people who buy tickets for opening night IMAX screenings. Marvel has created four incredible Avengers: Age of Ultron IMAX posters but only one will be given out to ticket buyers. I don’t know what happens to the other three other than they’re probably wasted rather than sold to people who would happily buy them. […]
