If you were hoping to see True Detective bounce back after a lackluster second season, prepare yourself for some bad news: It looks like HBO is not going to bring the anthology crime series back for a third season.Viewership increased overall during the first season, ending on a high of 3.52 million viewers, while the second season saw declines before its finale drew 2.73 million.Rave reviews piled in during season 1, while its successor was met with decidedly less excitement.There were a lot of changes, of course, including Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson handing off the series to Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and Rachel McAdams.I am thrilled to continue our relationship with Nic, as he is one of the most exceptionally talented writers and producers working today, said Michael Lombardo, then-president of HBO programming, at the time.I look forward to seeing where his unique creative vision will take us next.
Robin Hood 1973 was so seminal that I remember being shocked the first time I saw the hero portrayed by a human being and not the sly fox voiced by Brian Bedford.The scrappy feel is perfectly suited for this story of an outlaw and his bear friend Little John Phil Harris, also recognizable as Baloo in The Jungle Book who rob from the rich, etc.Cult favorite Barbara Crampton, known for her role in Re-Animator, stars as grieving mom Anne Sacchetti.Bent on winning a Pulitzer Prize, journalist Johnny Barrett Peter Breck decides to go undercover, pretending to be insane and checking into an asylum to solve a murder that has taken place there.See larger imageIn the 1990s, screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski became the masters of the offbeat biopic, aside from Ed Wood, Man on the Moon about Andy Kaufman , Auto Focus about Bob Crane , and Big Eyes about Margaret Keane , they wrote this biopic about the infamous founder of Hustler magazine, Larry Flynt Woody Harrelson .Hitchcock perfectly illustrates the McGuffin in this movie.
Neither flash nor html5 is supported!How do you bring stage magic to life with contemporary movie technology?Now You See Me 2, which opens tomorrow, continues the story of the Four Horsemen — magicians played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Lizzy Caplan.To answer that question, Chu pointed back to the first film, which he said asked, What is magic?Sometimes people use it to get your money … sometimes advertisers use it to get you to buy something, make you feel if you get this thing, this fragrance, you re going to draw in girls.I think that s a great concept for these superheroes, Chu said.
In the sequel, they re framed by a powerful businessman Daniel Radcliffe to help steal a super high-end technology.What makes it even more astounding is that it s shot in a way where the audience almost becomes the playing card-sized device—Chu throws, blows, sucks, and flips the camera along with the card, creating a truly electric scene.We were doing choreography with the steadicam where we re using our a7S camera .Andrei took the night to basically show, You can do it this way, you can do it that way, under the arm, you can do this and then I would circle the ones I thought were really interesting, Chu said.We were not saying, Hocus pocus magic exists.In a movie like Now You See Me 2, the audience isn t just watching magic.
When you give the cast of Silicon Valley microphones, they re going to use them to make you laugh.And for nearly an hour last night, Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, and Zach Woods TJ Miller and Martin Starr were off filming movies turned on those talents and transformed their panel into one extended improv sketch—repeatedly circling back to jokes from earlier in the conversation and fervently avoiding analytical conversations about the show.Co-executive producer Alec Berg noted during the panel that they had just opened the writers room for Season 4 and don t have a clear idea where the show is heading next, so it only made sense that instead of teasing future developments or offering a bunch of new material, the Pied Piper boys would just go off the rails for LoLs.Those of us not inside Lawrence s head know that her general musings are usually the best part of any press conference/panel/red carpet/etc.On the message of the Hunger Games movies: The power of the future is with you and it s in your hands.I spoke to him through Woody Harrelson .
We re coming up on the 7th anniversary of the star-studded, horror comedy Zombieland.That also means we re coming up on the 7th anniversary of talk about a sequel.However, now that the original film s writers have a new monster hit movie under their belt, they re back at it.On the AMC show Geeking Out, Zombieland writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese who also wrote a little film called Deadpool this year revealed they re currently writing the film now.That is breaking news that we re on Zombieland 2 right now, the writers said on the show.We re sitting with Woody Harrelson tomorrow and are going to sort of walk him through some of the stuff we want to do.
Los Angeles residents cruising the famed Sunset Strip this summer confronted giant images of drug lord Pablo Escobar, running back O.J.Simpson and cult apostate Kimmy Schmidt, all on billboards bearing the same message: For Your Consideration.The ads are pleas for Emmy Awards, the top prize in TV.With streaming companies like Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. spurring big increases in TV production -- the industry churned out 419 shows last year -- the race for an Emmy has taken on Herculean intensity.Emmy campaigns and awards have become a way for networks to promote their shows worldwide and gain credibility at home.This year the 21st Century Fox Inc. outlet ranked second in nominations, trailing only Time Warner Inc. s HBO, thanks to the Simpson miniseries and Fargo, inspired by the Oscar-nominated film.HBO, a perennial leader, uses nominations to cement its image as the destination for premium programming, a perception that s also attracted viewers.One of HBO s most important business strategies was to have the most Emmy nominations each year, Landgraf said.The awards also lure talent.HBO has convinced many of the film industry s biggest stars to work in TV, from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in True Detective to director Martin Scorsese on Boardwalk Empire.
This is our last stand.That s one of the key talking points given by the Colonel Woody Harrelson , the bald baddie at the center of the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes.And judging by the sheer amount of combat and carnage in this two-minute clip, we re inclined to believe him!This third entry in the recently revived Apes franchise appears to more than live up to its name, setting up a man-versus-animal conflict that pits Caesar Andy Serkis against the Colonel a guy who clearly hates every ape he sees .This leads to all manner of jungle shoot-outs, snowy showdowns, and doomsday dialogue If we lose, it will be … a planet of apes .We ll find out who goes extinct first when War for the Planet of the Apes opens July 14th.
The stakes keep getting higher in the rebooted, wildly successful Planet of the Apes franchise, and the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes suggests that the precarious balance between humans and apes could finally be approaching the tipping point.20th Century Fox released the trailer for the July 2017 film today, offering the first glimpse at the third installment of the modern series.This time around, Caesar and the apes face an even more dire threat in the form of a ruthless soldier played by Woody Harrelson who marshals the remaining human military to exterminate the apes.More: Battle has begun: War for the Planet of the Apes divulges little, is eerily beautifulWar for the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves, who also directed 2014 s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.The film s official synopsis reads as follows:
The first season of season of HBO s True Detective was some of the most riveting and compelling television to have aired over the past few years.Featuring an intriguing storyline set in the backwoods of Louisiana, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson delivered A performances as they brought Nic Pizzolatto s eery and incredibly unique script to life.It wasn t just that it failed to live up to the first season, it was that the second season was so boring, uninteresting and muddled that it was hard to believe it was even penned by the screenwriter.While it remains to be seen if there will be a third season of the acclaimed show, McConaughey recently explained that he d be extremely interested if not downright eager his role as Rust Cohle.During an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show, McConaughey explained that he was immediately taken by Cohel s character and that Cohle really speaks to me.You said you were going to do season 3.
From the cerebral sci-fi of Arrival to the raunchy, genre-busting action of Deadpool, 2016 was a good year for imaginative, groundbreaking films — and the coming year promises a similar cornucopia of reasons to head to your theater of choice.The follow-up to that film appears to be doubling down on everything that worked for John Wick and brings back some of the first installment s most memorable characters, as well as bringing back writer Derek Kolstad and co-director Chad Stahelski, who will fly solo behind the camera this time around.The success of Deadpool clearly gave 20th Century Fox the courage to take one of Marvel s most feral superheroes off the leash he s been on for the last 16 years or so, and you can bet that Jackman and director James Mangold are going to bid farewell to Wolverine in bloody style with Logan.The fact that the film is clearly inspired by one of the most popular Wolverine stories of all time, Mark Millar and Steve McNiven s 2008 miniseries Wolverine: Old Man Logan, also looks primed to raise the levels of both emotion and comic-book nerdery.At the risk of setting ourselves up for disappointment, Logan looks like the Wolverine movie we ve been waiting for since the character first unsheathed his claws in 2000 s X-Men.One of the most common complaints about 2012 s Alien prequel, Prometheus, is that the film created more questions than it answered when it comes to the mythology behind the sci-fi horror franchise s deadly xenomorphs.
Variety has sources saying that Woody Harrelson is in the early stages of negotiation to play the mentor of Han Solo Alden Ehrenreich in the next standalone Star Wars movie.There s no more information than that available, but we do know that Donald Glover will be playing Lando Calrissian and Emilia Clarke will be the love interest.My question is: will Harrelson s mentor teach smuggling or thieving, since the new Star Wars canon got rid of the story that Han once attended the Imperial Academy?Both the old and new canon do have him being orphaned at a young age and taking up thieving.Harrelson could be the Space Fagin to Ehrehreich s space Oliver Twist.That would be one direction to take, I guess.

That's according to Dacre Montgomery (Jason Scott/Red Ranger), who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter:"A lot of the cast and I have discussed that we think it should be a girl.Whoever you’re going to drop into that position — whether it’s a girl — it’s inevitably going to create drama.It'll be even more interesting to see how they spin the name 'Tommy.'It does mean, if all goes well, we're going to see at least five more Power Rangers films over the coming years.Woody Harrelson has revealed some details about Han Solo, telling Jimmy Fallon that his character's name is Beckett, and that he is "kind of a criminal and a mentor to Han".
