The Leftovers certainly made do with an HBO series that outgrew its original novel, so might Big Little Lies do the same? The star-studded miniseries has many fans hoping for a followup, and original author Liane Moriarty says she’s actively developing a potential continuation with the network.

A soft plateau to the Divergent film franchise gave way to finishing Ascendant as a TV movie, though stars like Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Miles Teller quickly offered their doubts on participating in a TV wrap-up. Now, Woodley affirms the finality of her distance from the project, despite an upcoming TV role.

There’s no doubting for a moment of Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’ that the filmmaker is a staunch fan of the whistleblower. A love letter fueled by a rah-rah liberal patriotism for the former CIA and NSA contractor’s achievements, Stone’s solemn biopic isn’t necessarily a film about Edward Snowden, but for Edward Snowden.

There’s still plenty to figure out with regard to the Divergent films wrapping up their final chapter with a TV movie, and potentially spinning into a new series from there, but it looks like Tris may be leaving the faction. Pressed if she might take part in the TV film, Shailene Woodley told reporters “I didn’t sign up to be in a television show.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley Talk Politics in This ‘Snowden’ Clip

If you live in Washington, D.C., how often do you walk by the White House? It seems like an odd place to go. In the new clip from Snowden, for example, we see the two main characters on an early date as they stroll past a protest outside the White House gates. Wouldn’t this be an unnecessarily crowded and uncomfortable path to walk? I have to figure that this is the D.C. equivalent of taking your date on a walk through Times Square, something you should never, ever want to do.

In some ways, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a higher-end version of James Franco but occasionally you have to wonder if we’ve allowed him to take himself a little too seriously. Take the latest trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden, for instance, which A.) Reminds you that this is a movie that is still coming out soon, and B.) Features one of the most baffling prestige-acting accents in recent memory.

Final ‘Divergent’ Film to Become a TV Movie, Launch a New Spinoff Series

The first Divergent movie did OK in theaters, owing much of its success to the YA post-apocalyptic craze and the popularity of stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller. But the subsequent installments saw diminishing returns, with the third film, Allegiant, taking a major hit at the box office — possibly because audiences had YA fatigue, or maybe because the story just wasn’t that compelling. Whatever the case may be, the final Divergent film will skip past theaters and head direct-to-television, with plans to launch a spinoff series.

Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’ Release Has Been Pushed Back...Again

Last year Open Road films pushed the release date of Oliver Stone’s Snowden back from Christmas, where it would have had to compete with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and a handful of Oscar contenders, to May 2016. That wasn’t exactly a vote of confidence for the film based on the life of famed NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and it would have forced Stone’s latest to contend with Captain America: Civil War. Snowden will no longer have to worry about Marvel, as the film has once again been pushed back, this time to early fall.
