#JessicaJones Trailer "Nightcap"

After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases in New York City. It's time the world knew her name.

Ritter stars as Jessica, a woman with super-strength and advanced healing powers who was once a superhero. After a traumatic experience, however, she gave that up and is now making a living as a private eye. Her cases often bring her into contact with those similarly boasting special abilities as well as the usual: cheating spouses, small crimes and missing relatives.



Overseen by Melissa Rosenberg and based on Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias comic book series, the show will also feature Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s closest friend Patricia “Trish” Walker, Mike Colter as friend and sometime love interest Luke “Power Man” Cage (who will be starring in his own series, now shooting), Carrie-Ann Moss as the enigmatic Harper and David Tennant as Zebediah Kilgrave, The Purple Man, a psy…

Movie Review: 'Sicario'

After a very slow start, Sicario becomes one of the best movies of the year.
Review by Matt Cummings
August and early September were some of the worst I've ever seen at the box office. But luckily, the Oscar season is approaching, with several noteworthy films having already arrived. Among them is the thriller Sicario which almost takes too long to get going. But once it finally does, it becomes a brutal, engrossing experience that is instantly worthy of Oscar praise.

Set on the US-Mexican border, Sicario introduces us to the Idealistic FBI Agent Kate (Emily Blunt) who discovers a grisly reminder of the Mexican cartels' power. Soon, she's whisked away to a intra-agency meeting with the flip-flop wearing Matt (Josh Brolin), who offers her a chance to find out who left her with a house full of corpses. Thrown into a hornet's nest of crime and violence on a scale she's never seen, Kate must decide whether Matt and his mysterious friend Alejandro (Benecio del To…

Movie Review: 'The Martian'

The science-fiction epic The Martian is also an irresistible human drama.
Review by Matt Cummings
With news recently that Mars most likely has water, mankind seems more ready than ever to venture there. Thus it seems fitting that Ridley Scott's The Martian should arrive to remind us of the dangers those journeys will ultimately bring. But the result is a brilliant, smart, and well-acted affair that is also one of the best films of the year.

While on a mission to Mars, Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is left behind after a massive storm leaves him injured and presumed dead. His commander (Jessica Chastain), and fellow crew members (Michael Pena, Kate Mara, and Sebastian Stan) are forced to abandon the mission, while Watney wakes up injured and covered in sand. Rather than giving up, he decides to survive until the next mission arrives four years later, 'sciencing the shit' out of the remains of base camp into a partial greenhouse. Meanwhile on Earth, NASA Director Teddy San…

Taika Waititi Offered Thor: Ragnarok

Taika Waititi, who co-wrote and co-directed the vampire spoof What We Do In the Shadows, is in negotiations to direct the third installment of Marvel’s Thor movies, titled Thor: Ragnarok.

Chris Hemsworth is reprising his role of the Norse god of thunder.

Waititi’s emergence as the choice caps off a round of intense meetings that took place over the last month. Ruben Fleischer, Rob Letterman and Rawson Marshall Thurber were the other directors that were finalists for the gig.

Waititi is the latest head-scratcher from Marvel for their pick to direct a big-budget extravaganza, especially one steeped in the Norse mythology and an Apocalypse myth.

He wrote and directed episodes of Flight of the Conchords and is a writer on Disney’s upcoming animated feature Moana, which will star Dwayne Johnson.

(Fun fact: he appeared with Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern, the 2011 adventure movie from Marvel’s superhero movie rival, Warner Bros.)

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is another example…

#Watchmen TV Series Heading To HBO

Variety is reporting HBO is in early talks with Zack Snyder to develop a “Watchmen” television series, based on the superhero comic book series from DC Comics, Variety has confirmed with the network. Snyder directed the 2009 film adaptation of “Watchmen.”

“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place,” HBO said in a statement Thursday.

Warner Bros., which owns DC Entertainment, declined to comment, though insiders confirm the studio would be involved in the potential project.

Other than Snyder meeting with the premium cabler to discuss adapting the DC property for TV, any storyline details are being kept under wraps, and no writer or other auspices have been attached. There’s currently no word on whether the series would be a prequel, sequel or new take on “Watchmen.”

Should the project (first reported by Collider) continue, HBO’s “Watchmen” would mark Snyder’s first big foray into television.

Lethal Weapon TV Series On It's Way

According to Deadline a Lethal Weapon hour long series based on the films that starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment. It will be written by former Chuck executive producer Matt Miller, who most recently created and executive produced the ABC drama Forever for WBTV.

Like the Rush Hour series, Lethal Weapon is a relatively straight remake featuring the movies’ central characters, Roger Murtaugh, who was played by Glover, and Martin Riggs, who was played by Gibson.

Sergeant Murtaugh (Glover), who recently celebrated his 50th birthday, getting partnered with the suicidal and highly volatile ex-U.S. Army Special Forces soldier-turned-LAPD Narcotics Sergeant Riggs (Gibson), who had been reassigned to homicide after a psychotic episode on the job as he deals with grief following the death of his wife in a traffic accident.

James Wan To Deliver #MacGyver Reboot

THR is reporting 20th Century Fox Television is rebooting The A-Team, CBS is bringing MacGyver back to the small screen,

Based on the Richard Dean Anderson starrer that ran for seven seasons on ABC, the CBS take is described as a reimagining of the television series of the same name, following a 20-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.

NCIS: Los Angeles' R. Scott Gemmill will pen the script and executive produce the CBS Television Studios drama while staying on board the CBS procedural.

Bridget Jones’s Baby First Image

The original Bridget’s director Sharon Maguire is back to make this one, from a script that has seen work by Fielding and Far From The Madding Crowd’s David Nicholls. Plot-wise, details are still locked in Bridget’s diary, but word is that the new movie will be based on Fielding’s columns and not her third book, Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy, which (spoiler) outraged fans by offing Mark Darcy and leaving Bridge to raise their kids alone.

Instead, the title points to the early days of Bridget getting unexpectedly preggers and exploring the joys and challenges of motherhood. Patrick Dempsey is also in the cast in an unspecified role, though he could well be a new romantic rival, since Hugh Grant won’t be showing up in this one. There’s some debate as to whether Dempsey might be the father instead of Colin Firth’s Mark, which would add the requisite dramatic tension and potentially a chance for Firth to put his Kingsman skills to the test and avoid another rubbish slap fight.
