by Erin Whitney November 17, 2015 @ 1:53 PM
We all thought Patti Levin (Ann Dowd), the fearless leader of the Guilty Remnant, was gone after last season on The Leftovers. It was utterly brutal and painful to watch, but like many things on Damon Lindelof’s metaphysical series, trauma from the past doesn’t go away easily. Here’s what the actress had to say about the latest shocking episode of the HBO show.

‘Hunger Games’ Producer on More Sequels or Spinoffs: ‘I’m Not Sure There’s Any More to Say’

by Mike Sampson November 3, 2015 @ 10:34 AM
Yesterday came news of massive Hunger Games theme park plans. Next summer, a Hunger Games stage show opens in London. But, will the Hunger Games borrow a page from the Harry Potter playbook and launch a new series of films, a la Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? The producer of all four of the Hunger Games movies certainly doesn’t seem to think so.

Lily Rabe on the Most ‘Terrifying’ Part of Playing Aileen Wuornos In ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

by Erin Whitney October 28, 2015 @ 10:08 PM
Leave it to Ryan Murphy to gather all of America’a most infamous serial killers in one room, days before Halloween. In Wednesday’s American Horror Story: Hotel, the first of the series’ traditional two-part Halloween episode, “Devil’s Night,” (spoiler alert) we saw Jeffrey Dahmer (Seth Gabel), John Wayne Gacy (John Carroll Lynch), Richard Ramirez (Anthony Ruivivar) and the H.H. Holmes-inspired Mr. March (Evan Peters) sit down to dinner with Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley). But the real guest of honor, and most terrifying part of the episode, was Lily Rabe‘s Aileen Wuornos.

Netflix Claims ‘Beasts of No Nation’ Already Seen by Over 3 Million Subscribers

by Charles Bramesco October 27, 2015 @ 9:03 AM
Netflix’s head of content acquisition Ted Sarandos has refrained from releasing subscription or content-specific streaming rates, mostly because he doesn’t have to. No larger presiding body has mandated that Netflix publicize its rates of success or failure, and so Sarandos has decided it’s in the company’s best interest to maintain a veil of secrecy over their operations. But in a new interview with Deadline, Sarandos surrendered a little ground and spoke about the playcount of the content streaming giant’s first foray into original scripted film programming, Cary Fukunaga’s brutal war picture Beasts of No Nation.

I Just Want People To Have Fun: Melissa Benoist and the ‘Supergirl’ Team on Finding the Joy in Being a Hero

by Luke Brown October 23, 2015 @ 9:00 AM | ComicsAlliance
While the the first female-led superhero film to arrive in theaters is still a few years off, the vacuum will be filled this coming Monday in TV land. Yes, Supergirl will soon beat the likes of Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Black Widow and even Jessica Jones to the punch as the first female superhero to get her own live-action starring vehicle this century. DC Comics and Warner Bros. have had some success in the serialized drama arena with Arrow and The Flash, but even from the earliest marketing you could tell Supergirl was carving a different path, and not just because she's on another network. This week we were given an early look at the upcoming pilot for Supergirl, and it's clear the series will be taking a much lighter approach to its hero's journey than the more gritty street-level action of Arrow or even the sci-fi turmoil of The Flash. While that's a fresh approach given the recent climate of superhero fare, the first episode isn't without its flaws. After viewing it, we took part in a conversation with producers Ali Adler, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg (both also responsible for Arrow and The Flash), as well as the new Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist, to discuss the show, where it's headed, and the challenges of making a nigh-invulnerable lead vulnerable.

Jessica Chastain Reveals the Subliminal Messages Hidden in ‘Crimson Peak’

by ScreenCrush Staff October 14, 2015 @ 10:59 AM
Crimson Peak is an absolutely gorgeous movie. Sumptuous even, if you like big words. Do not be surprised if you see Guillermo del Toro’s gothic-romance-horror movie eventually nominated for some Costume and Production Design Oscars in a few months. But, as star Jessica Chastain told us, there’s actually more to Allerdale Hall, the haunted house at the center of the film, than you might even be aware. In fact, if you look closely, there are actually hidden, subliminal messages within the walls.

Rose Leslie’s Ygritte stole Jon Snow’s heart (and virginity), shot three arrows into him and coined her very own Game of Thrones catchphrase. Though her wildling was killed off of the HBO series last year, the Scottish actress still watched Season 5 as addictively as the rest of us. But did Leslie, who reportedly dated former Thrones co-star Kit Harington on-and-off again, know about his shocking season finale death before the rest of us?

‘Crimson Peak’ Star Tom Hiddleston on Playing Bad Guys, ‘Kong: Skull Island’ and His Love of Beyonce

by ScreenCrush Staff October 13, 2015 @ 11:54 AM
Tom Hiddleston, despite being an otherwise extremely pleasant and lovely human being, has a habit of playing some evil dudes. There’s Loki, from The Avengers, Adam from Only Lovers Left Alive, and now Thomas Sharpe in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak. What do directors see in this charming actor to cast him as an antihero? Is he secretly a monster? Does he hate Beyoncé and puppies? We caught up with Hiddleston recently to talk about Crimson Peak and to get to the bottom of this mystery.

If you’ve watched a movie in the last 25 years and thought to yourself “God, this film looks great,” odds are it was shot by Roger Deakins. The master cinematographer of such modern classics as The Shawshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, and Skyfall is considered the best director of photography working today by almost everyone on the planet (except the Academy, which has nominated him twelve different times but never given him an Oscar).
