Suits fans weren’t exactly surprised when Royal-to-be Meghan Markle confirmed her departure from the series after eight seasons, but that was only half the story. Not only is USA bringing the stealthily popular legal drama back for an eighth season without Markle or co-lead Patrick J. Adams, but Katherine Heigl now has a leading role.
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
Sure, maybe April is early to declare a movie that hasn‘t even been screened for the public yet to be the best of the year. (It’s only the third of the month, so who knows, it might be early to declare anything the best of April.) And yet, watching the latest trailer for the upcoming Katherine Heigl/Rosario Dawson erotic thriller Unforgettable, I feel secure in my convictions. The first trailer was a whirlwind of psycho ex-girlfriend-sploitation, replete with darkly surreal home invasions, laptop-assisted masturbation, and Heigl’s super-serious killer-face. The final trailer has surfaced today, and if you weren’t convinced that this film will be an unassailable masterpiece — for people obsessed with low-rent suspense pieces about sexual obsession, such as myself — then Heigl’s got six words for you:
What the world needs now, in these turbulent and chaotic times, is more erotic thrillers. They were all over the place in the '90s, and yet somehow they've fallen out of favor in the decades since There have been a few cropping up in recent years, inspiring hope for some kind of erotic thriller renaissance; an obsessive younger man terrorized Jennifer Lopez in last year's The Girl Next Door and Morris Chestnut got caught in between two possessive women in this summer's When the Bough Breaks. Today brings the first look at the next film to join their esteemed ranks and contribute to the slow resurgence of the noble but underserved erotic thriller.
This whole “will they or won’t they” thing between Daniel Craig and the James Bond franchise has become more ridiculous than Ross and Rachel. And now Craig is adding a bit more fuel to the Bond-fire as the actor is preparing to join the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, making his return to the world of 007 seem increasingly unlikely.
The madness of 2014's Upfront season has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the major networks are without a few bombshells to drop. Sure, we've seen most of the official schedules, but NBC is the first to officially unveil their slate of fall 2014 premieres, surprisingly placing comic adaptation 'Constantine' for an October bow, with Katherine Heigl's TV return 'State of Affairs' moving even fu
Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow. Not only has NBC set the basic structure of its fall lineup, breaking up its Thursday comedy lineup and keeping 'Parks and Recreation' on the bench for the moment, but the network has also released full traile
NBC's gamble in resurrecting the live TV musical paid off handsomely (for viewers and tweets, anyway), so the network has set their sights even higher. NBC will next look to adapt 'Peter Pan' as a live televised performance, and has also given a series order to 'Wizard of Oz' drama 'Emerald City,' and a pilot order for 'Grey's Anatomy' vet Katherine Heigl's CIA drama 'State of Affairs.'
We like Katherine Heigl (?). She gets an unfair wrap for some of her public comments about the films and writers she works with, and beneath all the negative press hides a very intelligent, if misunderstood, and talented actress wrapped in a pretty package.
Now we're not quite to the point of forgiving 'Two for the Money' or 'The Ugly Truth' but, hey, we've all got to make a buck now and again.
