More than any before it, Hannibal Season 3 leaned on the written word of franchise author Thomas Harris, particularly Red Dragon, occasionally adapting entire exchanges and scenes to fit the renewed context of Bryan Fuller’s twisted love story. One scene in particular between Hannibal and Will splashes right off the page in all three filmed adaptations, captured in a new mashup of Hannibal, Red Dragon and Manhunter.

I Am Jack’s 20 Facts About ‘Fight Club’

by ScreenCrush Staff March 23, 2015 @ 5:12 AM
If you're a big Fight Club fan (and, if so, who can blame you), you might have seen a lot of the subliminal messages cut throughout the film like the many split-second Tyler Durden appearances or the occasional flashes of, ahem, the male anatomy. But, here's something you may have missed: director David Fincher says there is a Starbucks coffee cup hidden in every scene of the movie.

If there’s one thing Last Week Tonight With John Oliver viewers learned from last night’s show, it’s that infrastructure is not sexy. It became a bit of a mantra for the show: infrastructure is not sexy. But! What if it could be? And what’s sexier than a big screen summer blockbuster?

Just when you thought Sunday’s SNL 40th anniversary special couldn’t get any bigger, NBC juices both the runtime and star power. Not only will the extravagant birthday of New York’s most famous sketch comedy series run an additional half hour, but added to the guest list are Billy Crystal and Bradley Cooper, along with a number of other famous stars and alum.

Edward Norton’s Remembrance of Director Mike Nichols Was Perfect

by Kate Erbland November 21, 2014 @ 10:33 AM
Many celebrities would likely balk at turning their late night chat show appearance into a remembrance of a recently passed star -- too emotional, too sad, too something -- but Edward Norton not only took the time during his segment on last night's 'Late Show' to talk about director Mike Nichols with host David Letterman, he did it was style, grace, and some really lovely personal stories.

'Birdman' is Excellent, But Michael Keaton is Not Birdman

In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ (which will close the New York Film Festival this weekend and, I'll add, is my favorite movie of the year), Michael Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a veteran actor whose biggest claim to fame is that he used to be in a series of superhero movies. Now, Riggan is attempting to make his comeback by staging a Broadway play based on a Raymond Carver short story. It’s been lost on no one that Michael Keaton also used to be in a series of superhero movies and hasn’t had the most prolific output over the last 15 years – and is, now, making a comeback (of sorts) with ‘Birdman.’ For his part, Michael Keaton is distancing himself from this comparison, telling New York Magazine, “I related less to him than almost every other character I’ve played, in terms of the desperation.”

The new 'Birdman' trailer only confirms what we thought after the first preview from a few months ago: this is going to be one of the strangest movies of 2014 and we can't wait to see it. Not only does it feature the great Michael Keaton

'Birdman' Trailer: Michael Keaton Struggles to Hang Up the Cape

by Jacob Hall June 12, 2014 @ 1:22 PM
Fox Searchlight released the first 'Birdman' trailer, featuring Michael Keaton as a washed-up actor known mainly for portraying a superhero, and it is one helluva of a preview. Evocative and dark, funny and strange, the footage has done what all trailers set out to do: it took something we didn't care about and made us desperate to see it.

The 10 Best 'SNL' Sketches of the 2013/2014 Season

by Mike Ryan May 19, 2014 @ 2:16 PM
The 39th season of 'Saturday Night Live' is over. From the beginning, it was a strange season -- gone were so many of the show's powerful voices: Hader, Samberg, Wiig, Sudeikis, Armisen -- yet this allowed new voices to be heard. And that's the thing about being new on 'SNL': not everything is going to hit. But, in compiling this list of the ten best sketches from the 2013-2014 season, there were some tough choices to be made (sorry, 'Bugs'). And, sadly, for inclusion, the sketch had to have actually appeared on the live show (sorry, 'Wing').
And, yes, this list is heavy with prerecorded material as opposed to live performances. (Perhaps it's not completely fair to compare, but, this is a testament of just how strong the prerecorded sketches are in a post-'Digital Short' world.) And it's also notable that none of the best sketches were recurring sketches (though, I could see at least one of these coming back next season). So, behold: The ten best sketches from this past season of 'Saturday Night Live.'

See the Cast of 'Rounders' Then and Now

by Britt Hayes March 13, 2014 @ 3:00 PM
Released in 1998, 'Rounders' starred then-rising stars Matt Damon and Edward Norton as two best friends who enter the world of underground high-stakes poker to make enough money to pay off their large debts, but soon find themselves way in over their heads. Though it wasn't a huge success at the time, 'Rounders' went on to become a cult classic thanks to the growing popularity in poker tournaments around the world. Sixteen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
