The Flash: New Hero & New Girlfriend?

Interesting Developments Inferred For Season 2
Story by David Clark
To say season 1 of The Flash ended on a cliffhanger is like saying the Hulk is kind of green; understatement of the year right? It should be considered cruel and unusual punishment considering fans like us will have to wait until the fall of 2015 to find out what happens next.

As if anticipation for the premiere was not enough, the latest news from this past week gives people even more reasons to be curious about what The Flash has in store.

It is being reported that casting calls have gone out for two new roles. The first is for a new hero whose identity is yet to be revealed. The second is a new love interest for the scarlet speedster Barry.

For everyone screaming that Barry can not have a new love interest, think about how season 1 ended. Yes, by all indications a combination of Barry and Iris - Biris or Irry - is pretty much a foregone conclusion. It was all but revealed by the Reverse Flash on the sho…

Dark Matter Premieres On SyFy

Creator Joseph Mallozzi Shares A Few Last Minute Thoughts.
Story by David Clark

For those who do not know, the SyFy channel has made a commitment on going back to the stars. The days of Firefly, Star Trek, Stargate, and Battlestar Galactica seem like a distant memory and SyFy has decided the space epic drought has gone on long enough.

Dark Matter, premiering Friday June 12th at 10/9c is the first of many shows SyFy has planned. Written by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie as an adaptation of their limited run Dark Matter comic book, Dark Matter is their 10 year vision brought to life.

Most well known for their years writing and producing the Stargate universe, Mallozzi and Mullie had no idea how long the wait would be for Dark Matter to finally take a place on television programming. Revealed in an exclusive interview with Blastr, their original plan was to transition straight from Stargate into Dark Matter. Quickly they learned pitching a new and unknown intellectual proper…

TV Review: Hannibal "Primavera"

Will Graham is out for...vengeance?
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Hannibal continues to ease us slowly into its third season like a warm bath. Last week, we caught up with Hannibal and Bedelia on their dreamy – or nightmarish – European excursion, and now we are brought up to speed on Will and Abigail Hobbs. After a replay of last season’s drawn-out, stab-filled climax, Will awakens in a hospital bed to find Abigail greeting him with a large bandage on her neck. She claims that Hannibal knew how to slash her with such surgical precision as to leave her alive, yet despite that, she still claims loyalty to him. She wants to track him down not out of vengeance, but to reunite with the compelling man whose fate seems so powerfully intertwined with her own. Will claims to want the vengeance, but one wonders if there’s not a bit of that longing in him as well. These two men have a very complex relationship, after all.

Eight months later, Will and Abigail arrive at the church in Italy where Hannib…

#BESTOFENEMIES TRAILER

In the summer of 1968, television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult—their explosive exchanges devolving into vitriolic name-calling. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed. And a new era in public discourse was born.



Magnolia Pictures will release BEST OF ENEMIES in theaters on July 31, 2015.

Fall 2015 Television Preview: NBC

We conclude our Fall television preview series by focusing on NBC's offerings.
Story by Sue Lukenbaugh
NBC had a huge turn over. They canceled five new comedies - Marry Me, About a Boy, One Big Happy, A to Z and Bad Judge - and axed three dramas (State of Affairs, Constantine and Allegiance. They added fourteen new series, including six comedies, seven dramas and one variety show, but only six will begin with the traditional September start.

Best Time Ever – TUESDAYS 10|9c THIS FALL
Plot: Five-time Emmy Award winner Neil Patrick Harris is coming to NBC on a new primetime variety series based on the U.K.'s hugely popular "Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway." The show will feature comedy sketches, musical numbers, mini game shows, hidden camera pranks on celebrities and appearances by A-list stars.

My Verdict: This sounds like the variety show that I wanted to see from the Muppets, but it looks like a typical gameshow. It's a short run (just until Novem…

Fall 2015 Television Preview: Fox

We continue our look at the upcoming Fall television season by focusing on Fox's offerings.
Story by Sue Lukenbaugh
Fox did a fair amount of chopping as well, taking out 13 shows. It canceled long running shows American Idol, The Following, Kitchen Nightmares, Glee, The X Factor, and The Mindy Project, though Mindy did get saved by a Hulu pick-up. Also getting the ax were Backstrom, Gang Related, Gracepoint, Mulaney, Red Band Society, Utopia and Weird Loners.

The upcoming season has some real gems, let's just hope that FOX actually keeps a few around.

Bordertown – Release Date TBD
Plot: A new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. - Mexico border. It takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the series explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultu…

Pitch Perfect 3 On It's Way

THR is reporting there will be more, dear pitches, but it won't be cheap. With Pitch Perfect 2's massive $160.9 million in domestic box office (and counting), Universal and Gold Circle are moving ahead on a third installment.

Sources say negotiations have begun with Kay Cannon, who wrote the first two movies, to return for a third. It remains to be seen whether co-star Elizabeth Banks, a steward of the franchise as one of its producers, will return to the director's chair.

How a story would reunite the core Barden Bellas now that (spoiler alert) most have graduated college will be easier than making deals for such stars as Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, who sources say were paid about $2 million each for Pitch 2, which cost $29 million to make. That's a step up from their fees for the original 2012 film, which were in the low-six figures for Kendrick and less than $100,000 for Wilson, whose Fat Amy became the breakout.

Deals for a third movie will be costly because op…

#TheProgram Trailer. Lance Armstrong Movie

The race to get a film about the cheating, drug-enhanced winning ways of cyclist Lance Armstrong has been hotly contested, but it appears Stephen Frears has pulled ahead of the pack, with The Program arriving this year.

Adapted from sports journalist David Walsh’s book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong, the film will follow the cyclist’s meteoric rise, battles with cancer and equally fast fall once it was proved that he had been using performance enhancing drugs during his successful years.

Watch the trailer after the Jump...



Frears has Chris O’Dowd playing Walsh, with Ben Foster as Armstrong. From the looks of this, it’s a dramatic re-telling of Armstrong’s Tour de France years and then what happened when the truth came out, and the rabbit hole proved to be far deeper than anyone suspected.


With Lee Pace, Jesse Plemons, Guillaume Canet, Dustin Hoffman and Bryan Greenberg also in the cast.

Teaser Trailer For Disney's #Zootopia

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.

Writer/director Patrick Brice’s second feature is a painfully funny take on thirty^ something sexual frustration and parenthood.
