'The 100' Episode 1.06, 'His Sister's Keeper'
After Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) found herself face to face with a Grounder at the end of the last episode, it’s not a surprise that stills from the next episode of “The 100″ – fittingly titled “His Sister’s Keeper” – is all about everyone’s favorite little sister. There’s Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Jasper (Devon Bostick) leading the pack to go searching for her, there’s Octavia herself bloodied and bruised as she’s held captive by the Grounders – not unlike what Jasper himself went through at the start of the series –Read More
jersey-boys
Erich Bergen, John Lloyd Young, Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza are the four unknown young actors who are about to immortalize Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons on the big screen as Clint Eastwood prepares to debut his adaptation of Tony winning Broadway musical “Jersey Boys.” This first trailer is so far, so good. Young, who portrays Valli in the film, won a Tony for originating the role on Broadway in 2006, and Bergen and Lomenda, as Bob Gaudia and Nick Massi, are also stage actors. Piazza, the lone prominentlyRead More
'Game of Thrones' Episode 4.03 'Breaker of Chains'
Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) is a widow – again – after Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) ate it at their wedding, but she looks pretty calm in these new still images released for this weekend’s new episode of “Game of Thrones,” titled “Breaker of Chains.” Elsewhere, people have bigger things to worry about. Arya (Maisie Williams) is back having missed the Purple Wedding fiasco altogether, and is probably still contemplating the bloody massacre that she participated in last we saw her in the season premiere. Meanwhile, there’s never a moment to restRead More
Crossbones - Season 1
NBC has released individual and a group portrait of the cast of their new summer series “Crossbones,” which – if you didn’t already know these photos should make pretty clear – is about pirates. John Malkovich makes a rare TV appearance to play the notorious iconic pirate Blackbeard, and the show follows his adventures on the high seas in the 18th Century. The portraits include Malkovich’s Blackbeard, Chris Perfetti as Fletch, Richard Coyle as Tom Lowe, Claire Foy as Kate, David Hoflin as Charles Vane, Tracy Ifeachor as Nenna andRead More

Indie mainstay Caleb Landry Jones is in talks to join the cast of Roland Emmerich’s 1960s set gay rights drama “Stonewall,” according to Deadline. Jeremy Irvine was set for the lead role earlier this month. The historical, fact-based film will follow Irvine as a young man who gets caught up in the June 28, 1969 police raid of the Stonewall Hotel in New York City, “a venue that was a gathering place for gays and transgenders. It became the flashpoint for the gay rights movement, a galvanizing event that isRead More

Fox is very pleased with their rising star Michael B. Jordan, and according to Deadline, have picked up a new film as a star vehicle for him, ensuring they will get to work with the “Chronicle” and “Fantastic Four” star at least one more time. The film is called “Men Who Kill” and is described as a CIA thriller in the vein of an international “Bad Bays” action-wise. No more plot details than that at this point, but this will be the first time a film is being developed specificallyRead More

Yup, this is a period piece alright. Just Jared have the first photos from the set of Guillermo del Toro’s latest horror film “Crimson Peak” and Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska look like they just stepped out of the 1800s. Wasikowska, taking over for Emma Stone, plays a young writer named Edith who discovers her new husband is not all he seems. It’s unclear if that husband is Hiddleston or Charlie Hunnam’s character, but Hiddleston does also play twin brother to Jessica Chastain, with the two being from an aristocraticRead More

The internet is abuzz today that the post-credits scene of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ doesn’t feature the usual – tease of Andrew Garfield’s future or even the future of Dane DeHaan’s Goblin and his fellow “Sinister Six,” but rather, for unexplained reasons, the mutants of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” According to various reports of people who have already seen the film in places like the UK, Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique and Lucas Till’s Havok appear at the very tail end of the newest “Spider-Man,” though apparently without giving away anyRead More
third-person-trailer
The first trailer for Paul Haggis’ romantic drama “Third Person” has dropped and it goes from what seems like typical melodrama to screaming and guns and people getting dragged away by their ankles in under 2 minutes. OK, officially intrigued. Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde make up one part of this story, as they embark upon an extramarital affair, while elsewhere, Mila Kunis is kept from seeing her son by James Franco, and Adrien Brody, in yet another part of the world, meets and bonds with a stranger over theRead More
gotg-featurette
The people behind Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” get some spotlight in a new behind the scenes featurette which aired during ABC’s “Agents of SHIELD” show last night. From Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), David Bautista (Drax), Vin Diesel (voice of Groot) and Bradley Cooper (voice of Rocket) to Kevin Feige, the bigwig behind the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’re introduced a little bit more to not only the newest superhero team, but also the people who will be bringing them to life this summer. Would it be repetitiveRead More
