20 Images From Arrow Season 2

We get to see another side of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in some new pics from Arrow season two, as well as the introduction of former Firefly star Summer Glau.


Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly) will be joining the series as businesswoman Isabel Rochev, who will become partners with Oliver to help run Queen Consolidated. Up until this point, Oliver has been too preoccupied with kicking ass to do much business — so it’ll be interesting to see him try to balance both worlds in season two.


Very Batman-like, if you think about it.

We also get to see the old gang back together, with Diggle, Felicity, Roy and Thea making an appearance. We even get a few shots of island action, with Slade and Shado mentoring young island Oliver.

Though new shows are debuting left and right, we still have to wait until Wednesday, Oct. 9

Grand Theft Auto V Makes $800 Million In First Day

There might be a lot of hullabaloo when a big film – your Avatar, say, or your Avengers – makes a lot of money in a hurry at the box office. Yet given how the market for games has grown in the last decade or so, the most anticipated titles are now making those figures look like small change. Take Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V, which has announced a staggering $800 million in worldwide sales on its first day.

Yes, you read that right… $800 million. It helps that the game is released around the world pretty much on the same day, but that’s still an impressive number. Compare that with The Avengers, which was considered a huge hit with a $207 million opening weekend in the US last year.

The fifth GTA sold 18 million copies on the first day, and has quickly blown past the previous record, Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, which brought in $500 million for Activision in its first 25 hours. That title went on to make $1 billion in 15 days, which itself beat The Avengers to the same total by four days. Grand Theft Auto V is expected to reach that figure much more quickly. And they say crime doesn't pay...

The Big Bang Theory Cast Is Getting Paid

Co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch have received salary increases as leads Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco are seeking larger checks as well.

The Big Bang Theory leads Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco are seeking sizable pay increases, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The moves come after co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch recently inked new deals with studio Warner Bros. Television to guarantee their long-term presence on the series, securing raises in the process.

Sources tell THR that Emmy winner Parsons (Sheldon), Galecki (Leonard) and Cuoco (Penny) will negotiate together -- as they did in 2010 -- and are looking for a considerable bump in pay from their current deal. According to a TV Guide Magazine report, the trio currently earns $325,000 per episode and may seek up to $1 million an episode.

Original stars Simon Helberg (Howard) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) also are said to be looking for increases and will renegotiate together.

The new deals for Bialik and Rauch, who joined the series midway through its run and were promoted from recurring to regulars, will see their salary jump from $20,000-$30,000/episode to the $60,000 ballpark, with increases each year taking them to $100,000 per episode by the end of their new contracts.

Warner Bros. Television declined comment.

CBS has renewed Big Bang Theory through its upcoming seventh season, which begins next week. The series on Sunday is up for the best comedy Emmy, with Parsons again in the running for best actor. (The show has yet to win in the comedy series category.) Comic legend Bob Newhart also recently collected his first career win for his guest appearance on the Chuck Lorre comedy and is due to return this season.
In its sixth season, CBS' Big Bang Theory rose to new heights, thanks in part to TBS' syndicated repeats helping to expand the show's viewership, and bested ABC's Modern Family to become the top scripted comedy on television in total viewers and among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

THE FIFTH ESTATE Interview Director Bill Condon & Screenwriter Josh Singer


THE FIFTH ESTATE Interview Director Bill Condon & Screenwriter Josh Singer
By: John Meneghetti

Here is the interview with Director Bill Condon and Screenwriter Josh Singer. They sat down and talked about his upcoming film THE FIFTH ESTATE and more. And if you missed the interview with BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH, you can read it HERE.


Triggering our age of high-stakes secrecy, explosive news leaks and the trafficking of classified information, WikiLeaks forever changed the game. Now, in a dramatic thriller based on real events, “The Fifth Estate” reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization. The story begins as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistleblowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world’s most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other and a defining question of our time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society—and what are the costs of exposing them?"


PRESS: I understand, I just read the Hollywood Reporter I think it was that said you were in the same agency with the producer of this film who knew you and knew you by politics.

BILL CONDON: Yes.

PRESS: And came to you with this project.

BILL CONDON: Right, and as is Josh. So Steve Golin is that person. Anonymous Content basically produced this movie and packaged the movie. And forget the agents. No. [LAUGHS]

PRESS: What do you think is the biggest challenge bringing a story that some people will say, "Well I sort of know what that's about already. I read the stories in the headlines and I know WikiLeaks and Julian Assange," you know.

BILL CONDON: Well I think for me it was the experience of reading the script was so, "Oh my God, I didn't know that," you know. I think and the fact I think first of all that they're two such compelling characters, that the relationship is so compelling and that within the story you get to really examine these hot button issues that are like really of such incredible relevance to all of us now. So that for me was why I thought, "Well, that's a movie worth making," you know. Now how do we, you know, I hope we're able to get that message out to the public, you know.

PRESS: Was it this movie, Josh, that it says that we thought America was the land of the free and then we find out that they're the first people that try to put a [INDISCERNIBLE].

JOSH SINGER: When Dynadot actually -- when the judge ordered Dynadot to shut down the domain name because Dynadot was located in California and that's what the Julius Baer case. And see that's exactly to me, that was what drew me to the material to begin with was, you know, I knew about all the America data and everything that had happened, you know. And had some idea of, you know, the debates around the cables, but I didn't know any of the history. And the fascinating thing about reading Daniel's book was looking at how much they had done and what great heroic stuff they had done early on and how they had really been, you know, become these wonderful, you know, this wonderful new way of pushing transparency of checking government and checking large corporations from very early on.

And so, you know, to me one of the things I found very exciting was all the stuff that is prelude to what we sort of know. And I feel like one of the wonderful things Bill's done with the movie is by making all of that come to life, I think when you get into the American stuff and you've seen the film so you can tell me. But for me, that stuff now has context and it has context both in terms of Julian and Daniel's relationship and there's context in terms of the ideals of transparency they were pushing for and how, you know, when those ideals -- where the rubber meets the road in terms of pragmatism when, you know, you have an idea which is well editing reflects bias, right? Well, can you really just be that idealistic all the way along? When do you have to start making compromises of those ideals in order to remain true to the larger thing you're going after?

PRESS: But you give him the last word.

BILL CONDON: Julian, yes.

JOSH SINGER: Yeah.

PRESS: Can you argue that he did 'cause he said in that section, "No you cannot show me one instance where that red flag actually meant somebody died."

BILL CONDON: Yes. Sure.

PRESS: Is that true?

BILL CONDON: According to him it is, you know. And it's complicated because there are sources in the State Department who say no that's not true. At the same time at the Bradley Manning hearing when it was time for them to sort of point to someone, they couldn't. So I mean, you know, you decide. I mean it's really -- the jury is basically out on that.

JOSH SINGER: And I think one of the other things that there's a little bit of -- and all those comments are directly from Julian. So at the very end when Bill had this idea well what if we add Julian give a rebuttal at the end, we literally had a -- I went back and said, "Let's make that Julian's words, not my words." And so all those are directly from Julian. But there's a bit of a slight of hand in that comment because he's talking about someone dying, right? But one of the things that we heard and I talked to two or three very good State Department sources who people had left the State Department, people who, you know, one of them was P.J. Crowley who had left because he had protested, you know, the way Obama and the Obama Administration was treating Manning. And so they felt like real sources who weren't just trying to, you know, sell the party line.

And when we talked to them we really got a sense of, you know, to what extent this has really disrupted what had gone on in the State Department, you know, in terms of, you know, any number of confidential sources who might not have lost their lives but were in jeopardy and had to be moved out of their countries, you know, like we showed with Tariq.

PRESS: And who says where do I go now?

JOSH SINGER: Correct. And, you know, there's an actual story of a woman in a South American country who got a call much like the one we have Sarah Shaw, Laura Linney's character plays. And got a call and literally vomited into the film. You can ask anybody in D.C. They've heard this story, right? Because she knew her life was over in that country. She had to leave, right, because these cables might come out as they eventually did and when they would come out she would no longer be safe. And so her entire home, her entire way of life was gone.

PRESS: Assange mocks print press in the movie early on, and but then he [SOUNDS LIKE] rebles in the fact that The Times is giving him quoate pages and his getting fourteen pages on the Guardian, so I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about where you see print versus the new media and how they kind of work together or is print done?

BILL CONDON: Well, hopefully that isn't done, but it's in trouble. There's no question, right? Nick Davies talks about this a lot, the fact that investigative journalism is as the script says, pricey, and the money for that is less and less available. And so, yeah, there's some value to what people like WikiLeaks can provide but the crucial thing is, who then becomes the person who decides, you know. And, yeah.

JOSH SINGER: Yeah, one of the reasons I wanted to write the movie to begin with is, you know, as you all know the past five, 10 years have not been kind to the Fourth Estate, to traditional journalism. There have been layoffs, there have been, you know, newspapers have shrunk, a lot of them have gone out of business and this is a real problem, you know. Clay Shirkey has documented this ad infinitum, you know. The old models are dying a little bit, right? And if the old models are dying, how are you going to -- what is going to be the proper check? Who is going to check government? Who is gonna check these corporations? Who's going to make sure this graft isn't happening? And that's where hopefully pioneers like Julian and Daniel come in. So it's interesting 'cause there definitely was I think early on very much attention between, you know, some of the folks in The Guardian were very interested in what Julian and Daniel were doing and some of the folks were like, "Well, that's not real journalism," right? And yet then there was this idea well maybe it can help [SOUNDS LIKE] The Augment. Maybe it can help pick up the slack for us and, you know, the question then is, you know, one of the things that we like about the Times and the Post and traditional journalism is that they have journalistic standards, right?

PRESS: The Post has standards?

[LAUGHTER]

JOSH SINGER: But there are [LAUGHS] standards. There are journalistic ethics and so when you have this Fifth Estate, you know, it's a question of well who is giving us that news and will they stay true to the same sort of level of journalistic ethics and integrity.

PRESS: What type of relationship -- I mean I kept asking Daniel and Benedict, is this kind of an S&M relationship?

BILL CONDON: How did you get that? You're the first one.

[LAUGHTER]

PRESS: Well, I mean he's so abusive and dismissive and horrible to him throughout the whole movie. He's never sort of saying, "You did a good job," or anything like that and yet -- and his girlfriend keeps saying to him, "What do you put up with his shift for?" So how do you two guys --

BILL CONDON: Have you met many Germany men? No, no.

PRESS: Well, I can't imagine.

BILL CONDON: I'm kidding. It's a joke, right? No. S&M, that's interesting. No, I think [LAUGHS] -- to me it is the -- one of the things we, you know, in this kind of laying out of the relationship, there was a certain guru element to Julian and, you know, he is somebody who -- and it's part of the betrayal that he ultimately feels with Daniel. It's the reason, it's one of the things happening in that scene with the parents, you know. So that he's somebody who has really extracted himself from all the comforts of life, certainly of middle class life and that includes having a home, having a bed, having a steady girlfriend. All of those things, you know. He has children all around the world and all that stuff.

PRESS: Which we never find out about.

BILL CONDON: Well, a little bit. There's a hint of it. Right, right. But the idea is now he's found this person who sort of gets him and he's gonna join him on this journey, you know. And like any guru, you know, his word is ultimate, you know. So if you notice each time there are those moments of lashing out, it has to do actually with a sense of betrayal on Julian's part that somehow this person who he thinks is thinking about the world in the same way actually isn't. And one of the worst is when he gets to the parents' house and sees again that there's the background of domestic comfort which means that yet again this accolade will never really be able to join him. He's lonely and alone once again, you know.

PRESS: He's damaged I thought that scene also meant.

BILL CONDON: Oh, absolutely.

PRESS: He resents somebody --

BILL CONDON: That's correct.

PRESS: -- who had that kind of thing who could look and say, "That was my father."

BILL CONDON: That's correct.

PRESS: Who wasn't part of this cult.

BILL CONDON: Absolutely, but he sees more clearly that Daniel then isn't that perfect both, you know, accolade that would become his own mentor. It's a very complicated relationship so, yeah, it is probably S&M, yeah.

PRESS: On the casting of Daniel as Daniel and what they brought to the movie.

BILL CONDON: Yeah, well, you know, with Daniel Bruhl in a way the tougher part to cast, you know. Always, the every man, the person who doesn't get all the pyrotechnics, you know, but has to hold his own against the person who has all those great scenes, you know. And I met a number of people and it was that sort of love at first sight breakfast with Daniel Bruhl after which it was just an obsession with making sure that he's the one that got to be in the movie. Clearly, you've met him, you know, it's this incredible openness, kindness, intelligence, wit and also generosity, you know, because I do think it's tough sometimes to play those parts, you know, and to see somebody else get the last word and get to -- so I, you know, I can't tell you how crucial Daniel Bruhl is to making the movie work.

And with Benedict again, it's so interesting when you cast roles and you start to think about what's actually demanded, how those long lists become very short very quickly, you know. And he again this extreme intelligence and obviously he wanted someone who was, you know, had great charisma, a great voice which Benedict does. And also there's something 'cause I can think of a couple of other actors who might fit that bill, there's also something about Benedict, there's something about the British stage actor where he's a natural entertainer. And actually I think that was crucial to that part because even as he's being so odd, there's something -- he's always kind of weirdly enjoying himself, you know, I think. And all those things combined into like making it clear that that was the choice.

PRESS: As the, I assume after you finished the movie and all of these other stuff continues to happen surrounding Bradley Manning.

BILL CONDON: Yeah. Right.

PRESS: Did you think to yourself, "I wish I could go back in," or did you have just sort of draw a line and say, "Okay, we're going to end it."

BILL CONDON: Yeah, no I never honestly thought that because I thought when I first read Josh's script I thought what was so clever about it is that it told a story that had a beginning, a middle and an end which was the Daniel story with WikiLeaks and it felt to me that within that everything else that we're seeing played out now was being addressed, you know. All the issues, all the important issues surrounding it. So yeah, I mean that's incredibly juicy stuff, but I don't know that Bradley Manning's, you know, desire to have a sex change operation really speaks to what's going on or the issues that are happening in this movie.

PRESS: One of the things we heard or that people know about is that Julian tried to persuade Benedict not to play the part and told him it was going to be a smear job and you do present him as somebody who's an egomaniac and a liar. And it comes through very clearly when they decide to take down the site because they say he lied to people and he will say whatever. Can you talk about trying to balance the arrogance and the brilliance of Julian Assange with a character that the audience can sort of sit there and continue to be interested in for two hours?

BILL CONDON: Yeah, it wasn't even so much for the audience because I think in a way it's Daniel taking the audience through that. But I think in general it's part of the impulse behind the final scene, you know, giving him the last word and he gets to refute some of those things, you know. And look, he's an extremely complicated public figure, you know. And all of those things that are depicted in the movie are on the record. And so they go into creating a portrait of somebody who's interesting. He doesn't like it. He's got, you know, an array of incredible good qualities. One of them is not, you know, he's very thin skinned to any kind of criticism. So --

PRESS: Is he a megalomaniac?

BILL CONDON: I don't know. That seems like too simple a word, you know. I think that's your word. I don't think that's what the movie's saying necessarily.

PRESS: What's next for Bill?

BILL CONDON: I'm gonna do this small movie with Ian McKellen called "The Slight Trick of the Mind" about Sherlock Homes --

PRESS: Is it funny?

BILL CONDON: Yeah, yeah, exactly. I know, I know. I can't get away from them, yeah, yeah, yeah.
PRESS: And when he's aged.

BILL CONDON: Exactly, yes, yeah, yeah.

PRESS: Does somebody young come along to try to help them?

BILL CONDON: Yeah, basically it's a story about the woman who takes care of the house and her son and their relationship with Holmes.

PRESS: And it's set in the fifties?

BILL CONDON: It's set in the late forties, you know.

PRESS: Oh, okay. Great format.

BILL CONDON: Yes, it is. Yeah, good design period, right? Yeah, yeah, right. Good. Thank you. Good seeing you, Steven. Yeah, yeah. Thank you.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs 2 In Roseville

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs 2 on September 21st @ 11:00AM @ Century 14 in
Roseville.


Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs 2 is an upcoming 2013 American 3D computer-animated comic science fiction film produced by Sony Pictures Animation. The film is the sequel to the 2009 film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, which was loosely based on Judi and Ron Barrett's book of the same name. It is being directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, produced by Kirk Bodyfelt, and executive produced by the directors of the first film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.


The screenplay was written by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, and Erica Rivinoja, and it is based on an original idea, and not on Pickles to Pittsburgh, Barrett's follow-up book. Cloudy 2 will continue right after the first film, where a food-making satellite gets out of control, but its creator, young inventor Flint, and his friends, eventually manage to stop it. In the sequel, Flint and his friends are forced to leave their home town, but when the food machine awakens, this time producing sentient food beasts, they must return to save the world.


Most of the main cast will reprise their roles: Bill Hader as Flint Lockwood, Anna Faris as Sam Sparks, James Caan as Tim Lockwood, Andy Samberg as Brent McHale, Neil Patrick Harris as Steve, and Benjamin Bratt as Manny. New cast includes Terry Crews, who replaced Mr. T as Officer Earl; Will Forte, who voiced Joseph Towne in the first film, voices Chester V and Kristen Schaal as orangutan Barb.


After the devastating food storm in the first film caused by his machine, Flint Lockwood and his friends are forced to leave the town of Swallow Falls. Flint accepts the invitation from his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, which has been tasked to clean the island, and where the best inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind and planet Earth. Upon arriving back at Swallow Falls, Flint discovers that his machine still operates and now creates sentient food beasts like humanoid and self-aware pickles, hungry tacodile supremes, shrimpanzees, melonheads, mosquitoasts, watermelophants, and apple pie-thons. It's up to Flint and his friends to put a stop to the machine once and for all before this new form of foody life breaks from the island and invades the blue planet.

First Image From Fury Starring Brad Pitt & Shia LaBeouf

First Official Pic From Fury

Right now, End Of Watch director David Ayer is in the filmmaking trenches, putting Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf and more through their paces for World War II tank thriller Fury. He’s been posting images from the set via his Twitter account and has now released the first official still of the leads sitting on the titular tank.

Pitt stars as an Army sergeant named Wardaddy (possibly not his real name), commanding a five-man beast of a vehicle fighting through Germany as the Nazi regime collapses in 1945. Despite its leadership crumbling, the Wehrmacht continues to be a big threat, and the crew of the tank face serious challenges.

Ayer is determined to make this one feel authentic, so we’re sure the cast will have plenty of actorly war stories to share once they’ve served their time. Michael Pena, Scott Eastwood and Jon Bernthal are also among the cast, with Ayer directing his own script and taking aim at a November 14, 2014 release in the US. There’s no word on when Fury will make it over here, but we’d guess at an early 2015 date.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For RUSH In Sacramento

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For RUSH Wednesday, September 25 - 7:00 PM Downtown Plaza in Sacramento.


Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on RUSH, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.


The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.


Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, RUSH portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, RUSH follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.


Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), RUSH is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Brian Oliver (Black Swan), Morgan, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) and Morgan and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Tim Bevan and Todd Hallowell.
