'The 100' Episode 1.07 'Contents Under Pressure'
A new episode of our new favorite show “The 100″ airs tonight, and we’ve also received a new poster which seems to hint at what’s the come in the second half of the season as well as stills from next week’s episode, “Contents Under Pressure.” Spoiler alert, but it looks like Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) gets back safe and sound to the 100, while Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Raven (Lindsey Morgan) have put aside their differences to work together on saving…uh, oh, is that Finn (Thomas McDonnell) on that stretcher? “TheRead More

In surprise casting news of the day, Deadline reports Felicity Jones is the first actor to be cast in Juan Antonio Bayona’s adaptation of Patrick Ness’s incredible children’s book “A Monster Calls.” The book tells the story of a young boy who escapes into a fantasy dream world when real life gets too difficult with an ill-stricken mother and bullying classmates. But his dream world isn’t a walk in the park either, and he is often confronted by a monstrous tree-like creature. Deadline reports Jones is lining up the roleRead More
sisterhood
“Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” fans, rejoice! Another adventure with Carmen, Tibby, Lena and Bridget is coming to the big screen, as it was announced today that the filmmakers behind the first two films based on the bestselling Ann Brashares novels are now in development on a third movie. It had been thought that the second film ended on a note that allowed the characters to be retired from the big screen, despite there being several more books in the novel series to adapt from, but the third one shouldRead More

“Jurassic Park” relaunch “Jurassic World” is now filming in Hawaii under the direction of Colin Trevorrow, and they’ve wasted no time in sharing the first official photos from the set, released today via EW. The first film in what is being planned as a new franchise takes place years after the events of the first Steven Spielberg trilogy, at a park that is fully functional and open to the public. I’m betting that’ll change at some point during the movie. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Nick Robinson andRead More

The CW’s “The 100″ is one of the most compelling new shows of the season and over the weekend at WonderCon we had the opportunity to sit down with some of the cast members and showrunner Jason Rothenberg to talk over a wide variety of topics. Raven is the sole of the “100″ who spent the first few episodes of the show on the Ark with the adult characters. At our interview at WonderCon, actress Lindsey Morgan talked to us about what it was like when she finally got toRead More
hannibal-michaelpitt
His appearance has been teased for a couple of weeks now, but we are just about ready to meet one of “Hannibal”‘s most famous supporting characters on NBC’s series adaptation of Thomas Harris’ novels. HuffPo today posted the first picture of Michael Pitt as Mason Verger, who will be making his appearance in the May 2nd episode. Mason’s appearance was first teased in last week’s episode, when his sister Margot Verger (Katharine Isabelle) took Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) on as her therapist and at the very top of the listRead More

Move over, Michelle Williams, there is a new Marilyn in town. The Wrap is reporting that Andrew Dominik’s long-gestating Marilyn Monroe biopic “Blonde” may be moving forward again, but original star Naomi Watts is out, and Jessica Chastain is in. Certainly no downgrade by any means. Dominik has been working on this, described as his passion project, since 2010, based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel of the same name. Oates drew on factual and historical sources to tell “the inner, poetic and spiritual life of Norma Jeane Baker — theRead More
dominion
Syfy has released a new trailer and some new stills for their upcoming summer supernatural series “Dominion,” which follows characters based on the 2010 film “Legion.” More importantly, it brings us the return of Christopher Egan, who has been sorely missed from our TV screens since the way too early cancellation of NBC’s “Kings.” At least we’ve gotten to see Sebastian Stan in a Marvel movie or two. Egan plays Alex, a human who gets caught in the middle of a battle between good and evil, heaven and hell… youRead More
'The Tomorrow People' Season Finale, 'Son Of Man'
After a freshman season of discovering their powers, learning to work together and choosing sides between good and evil, The CW’s “The Tomorrow People” are facing a cataclysmic event in their first season finale (which may even be a series finale since it hasn’t been renewed for a second season yet). Let’s hope there are no major cliffhangers left over at the end of this. The finale of “The Tomorrow People,” titled “Son of Man,” will air on Monday, May 5th at 9pm. Russell (Aaron Yoo) realizes his alliance withRead More

Chloe Moretz and Haley Bennett play a couple of young women in serious trouble who need the protection of Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer” in the first stills released from Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the 1980s detective TV series of the same name. USA Today released the first stills today, which usually means a trailer can’t be far behind. Washington plays Robert McCall, a retired government operative who faked his own death in order to get some peace and quiet, but who comes out of retirement when Moretz’s character needs hisRead More
