We’ve all heard the casual moans of fan communities that Hollywood never comes up with anything original anymore, settling into the familiar patterns of sequels, remakes, and adaptations of familiar properties to cash in on brand recognition. And while remakes have become subtly accepted as a chance for a new take on dormant properties, the recent ‘RoboCop’ trailer reminded us just how much passions can strain in the dissection of beloved classics.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Lending 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' creator Joss Whedon the reins to 'The Avengers' placed Whedon's trademark wit all over the Marvel universe, something soon to return to its TV roots in Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' on ABC. And while Whedon's influence and past Whedonverse stars will be present for ABC's superhero-adjacent drama, what surprising connection to 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' has Joss revealed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' to have?
'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star and all-around icon Sarah Michelle Gellar will return to TV once again this fall with CBS' forthcoming Robin Williams comedy 'The Crazy Ones,' thought naturally diehard 'Buffy' fans keep hope alive for a return to the Joss Whedon-helmed franchise. Beloved cult classic 'Veronica Mars' finally had its movie brought to life via Kickstarter, so what does SMG have to say about future 'BtVS' movie prospects?
We realize that the prospect of a 'Firefly' shocker a decade after the show had been cancelled seems like a bit of a stretch, but a recently-revealed bit of trivia from Joss Whedon has proven too good to ignore. In promoting 'Much Ado About Nothing,' Whedon revealed his own past Shakespearean ambitions for 'Firefly,' having once envisioned an episode guest starring 'Buffy' / 'Angel' alum and Whedon favorites Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and James Marsters!
There are immediate 'Game of Thrones' spoilers in the next paragraph. You have been warned.
In the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones,' Robb Stark's rebellion was put to a sudden and bloody end at the hands of the spiteful Walder Frey, the traitorous Roose Bolton and the crafty Lannister family. "The Red Wedding" saw Robb's pregnant wife stabbed to death and the King in the North shot full of arrows before being stabbed in the heart. However, the real kicker was the death of Robb's mother Catelyn, who had her throat cut after killing Frey's young wife.
It's the kind of scene you never forget, an event that will radically change the make-up of 'Game of Thrones' forever. There won't be a more memorable set of character deaths in 2013. How could someone top that?
Did a CBS sitcom just become our new favorite comedy pick of pilot season? You betcha! Having previously cast comic legend Robin Williams, CBS pilot 'Crazy Ones' has made yet another terrific addition: former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star Sarah Michelle Gellar! Following the demise of The CW's 'Ringer,' Gellar will once again return to TV for the David E. Kelley single-camera comedy, taking the role of Williams' character's daughter, but will it be any good? Get the inside scoop on 'Crazy Ones' with SMG inside!
Okay, so former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star Sarah Michelle Gellar's big return to TV with The CW's 'Ringer' didn't exactly work out, but you can't keep a good slayer down. No, it's not that 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' animated series we'd heard about, or even a guest spot under Joss Whedon on ABC's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, but rather Sarah Michelle Gellar is reportedly returning to TV in another starring vehicle. Find out the details of SMG's new venture inside!
It's hard to believe that Hollywood ever doubted Joss Whedon, what with 'The Avengers' still raking in the dough, and his glorious impending return to TV with ABC's subsequent 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, yet only a few years ago the acclaimed director had trouble getting several TV series off the ground. Whedon's breakout success 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' enjoyed an acclaimed run, but what does the director most strongly regret Hollywood never afforded him the chance to do with the show?
'How I Met Your Mother' has featured some strongly meta casting in the past eight years, but little that warmed our hearts as much as seeing former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' couple Seth Green and Alyson Hannigan reunited for Monday's upcoming episode "The Final Page." We saw a picture of the reunion earlier, but are you ready to see Willow and Oz together again for real? Check out the latest clip!
While much of the East Coast continues whipping itself into a frenzy over the incoming "Frankenstorm," we've just received confirmation that everything is going to be alright with the world. For you see, Willow and Oz are getting back together! For non-Whedon nerds, that is to say that Seth Green will guest star on the current (and potentially final) season of 'How I Met Your Mother,' alongside his former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' co-star Alyson Hannigan. But, who will the one-time werewolf portray?
