Oliver Stone's 'Platoon' was released in 1986 and was based on the director's own experiences fighting in the Vietnam war. The film marked the first time a Vietnam veteran made a film about the war, and earned Oscars for both best picture and best director. It also helped launch the careers of young actors like Charlie Sheen and Johnny Depp. 27 years later, we revisit the cast of this classic film and see where they are now.
When last we heard of FOX's upcoming Batman-adjacent 'Gotham' TV series, we'd learned that the pilot would pick up with a young Jim Gordon investigating the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne, explaining why we'd never actually see Batman within the series.

Though 'Star Trek Into Darkness' producer/director J.J. Abrams has his attentions elsewhere, 'Star Trek 3' is moving forward, with Joe Cornish the most recent director rumored to take Abrams' place. Now it appears the writer's room has had a bit of a shake-up as J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have joined the film, while Alex Kurtzman has jumped off the project.
Last night saw NBC garnering itself an impressive number of viewers for the train-wreck-maybe-sorta 'Sound of Music Live,' and given all the attention, what better place to promote Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's return to the Golden Globes stage this coming January 2014? See the ladies of '30 Rock' and 'Parks and Recreation' stage their own musical, kinda!
Those with eyes on 'American Horror Story: Coven' this year have no doubt seen one or two 'Justified' season 5 teasers (even 'The Americans' season 2, natch), but at long last FX has pulled out the big guns.
