J.J. Abrams is a fine filmmaker, but he might be an even better huckster. It wasn’t too long ago that Rolling Stone declared him to be “this generation’s P.T. Barnum,” praising the man’s unique talent for creating mystery around a project and generating buzz. He turned Star Wars: The Force Awakens into the can’t-miss cinematic event of a year that had already produced three of the ten highest-earning movies of all time. As the producer of Matt Reeves’ Cloverfield, Abrams took it upon himself to facilitate the creation of an ‘alternate-reality game’ that led determined fans to tantalizing new tidbits attached to the film. And it seems that now, Abrams is up to his old tricks.

J.J. Abrams pulled off some pretty effortless misdirection, keeping us all so occupied with Star Wars: The Force Awakens that we had no idea about this little indie project he was producing titled 10 Cloverfield Lane. The trailer arrived with no warning, followed by Abrams confirming that the film is indeed related to Cloverfield, though it’s not really a direct sequel. One of the stars of his new mystery project is Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who has opened up just a tiny bit about the secrecy surrounding the film and what we can expect when it hits theaters.
A&E’s Bates Motel checked into a bit of good news earlier today with a two-season renewal, though on the flipside of the coin, it seems as if The Returned remake will head back to the coffin after only one season.
In addition to the outstanding upcoming indie thriller Faults, Mary Elizabeth Winstead also appears in Alex of Venice, the directorial debut from Chris Messina (you cannot throw a rock in the indie world without hitting that guy). The first trailer for the new indie drama has arrived, in which Winstead plays a mother whose husband decides to take a break from his family, leaving her confused and adrift.
One of the best films to come out of SXSW last year was ‘Faults,’ an unnerving, gloriously dark and wry thriller featuring Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a cult member whose parents sanction an expert to kidnap and deprogram her. Of course, it doesn’t go that smoothly in the film, which was directed by Winstead’s husband, Riley Stearns. ‘Faults’ is finally hitting theaters, and the first appropriately twisted trailer has arrived.
We were admittedly skeptical when A&E announced that it would develop its own version of revered French series 'The Returned,' which itself inspired ABC's own 'Resurrection,' though the cast of A&E's version at least gives us reason to continue. 'Scott Pilgrim' star Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined the cast, along with Jeremy Sisto, and other such stars from 'Arrow,' 'House of Cards,' 'LOST' and more.
You probably know Chris Messina best from 'The Mindy Project.' Or maybe it's 'The Newsroom.' Or maybe it's one or more of the following: 'Argo,' 'Julia & Julia,' 'Greenberg,' 'Devil,' 'Away We Go,' 'Like Crazy,' 'Ruby Sparks,' 'Celeste and Jesse...
In spite of their increasing pedigree, we haven't paid much attention to Cinemax's original series, but the latest additions to the pay cable network's upcoming drama series 'Quarry' have proven far too tempting to ignore. 'Die Hard' franchise star and 'Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World' babe Mary Elizabeth Winstead has joined Cinemax's 'Quarry' in her first regular TV role since rising to fame, joining 'The Avengers' and 'Thor' star Stellan Skarsgard, among others.
Every day is 'A Good Day To Die Hard' if you're John McClane, and this latest 'Die Hard 5' clip shows us how father and son deal with some scumbags.
You probably don't need much convincing to see 'A Good Day to Die Hard,' the latest entry in the 'Die Hard' franchise featuring Bruce Willis reprising the iconic role of bad-ass John McClane -- but we've got a ton of new images anyway!
