  • 'Extant' Premieres tonight on CBS, will it live up to the hype?

    I can't quite recommend CBS' science fiction miniseries Extant, which debuts tonight. I have misgivings about it — the lead performances are a tad opaque, and the script feels as though it's telling two separate stories that don't immediately seem as though they'll connect in a graceful way — but because CBS only sent the pilot to critics, who knows how well-founded they are? Future episodes might put my worries to rest and make the opening chapter seem like brilliant seed-planting in retrospect, or Extant could lose air slowly, like a ruptured spacecraft's hull.At least tonight's premiere gives you a sense of what mode Extant is working in — creepy-atmospheric, early Polanski horror — and verifies that CBS has indeed thrown a ton of money at the production, hiring Oscar-winner Halle Berry to play the astronaut heroine and Goran Visjnic, Camryn Manheim and Looper's Pierce Gagnon to back her up, »

  • Scarlett Johansson in Talks for Coen Brothers’ ‘Hail Caesar!’

    Scarlett Johansson is in talks to join the Coen brothers’ drama “Hail Caesar.”

    Jonah Hill is also in talks to join the cast.

    She would join Josh Brolin and George Clooney. Channing Tatum, Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes are also in negotiations to co-star.

    Universal will distribute with the Coens producing, along with Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title Films.

    The story follows a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s who is working to keep a studio’s stars in line.

    Johansson will play an actress who suddenly becomes pregnant as her film is about to go into production. It’s a good fit, since Johansson announced in March that she was pregnant. She is engaged to Romain Dauriac.

    The plan is to go into production this fall and given the size of the cast, Johansson’s role is not expected to take very long to shoot.

  • Kanye West' Epic Wireless rant in detail

    On July 4th, Kanye West, wearing his face mask du jour, started singing "Runaway" from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy for the crowd at the Wireless Festival in London before getting sidetracked with an Epic fifteen minute rant in which he called out Nike, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, the media, and everyone else in the world who doesn't believe in The Genius of Kanye West. His diatribe is sprawling, long, and very Kanye with its auto-tune and made-up words. We here at Vulture love you so much that we transcribed the entire thing.[singing/autotune] Don’t let nobody tell you what you can do, what you can believe, what you can achieve. Don’t let nobody but you. You know, people be looking at me like I got a problem or something. Like I’m uncontrollable or something. Like I don’t do what I’m supposed to do. You know it » - E.

  • Transformers crushes Tammy at the box office

    Transformers: Age of Extinction” is far from extinct in its second weekend, bringing some heat to a less-than-explosive Fourth of July box office.

    The sequel grossed $10.6 million Stateside on Friday, dominating Melissa McCarthy’s “Tammy,” which earned $6.4 million.

    The fourth installment of Paramount’s ever-growing franchise is the only release so far this summer to come in no. 1 in the box office for two weeks straight. The lack of a reigning summer champ is partly to blame for the nearly 15% drop in earnings from last summer.

    The traditionally busy holiday weekend was also less explosive than last year’s Independence Day, which brought in $230 million thanks to the $143 million launch of “Despicable Me 2.” “The Lone Ranger” flopped with $48 million. However, last year’s movies benefited from the Fourth falling on a Thursday, meaning audiences were free to go to the movies on Friday.

  • 'Turn' Showrunner snitches secrets of season 2

    The first season of AMC’s Turn wasn’t exactly the shot heard ’round the world. Facing a slate of popular Sunday-night competition like Game of Thrones and The Good Wife, Craig Silverstein’s Revolutionary War drama had to fight for respect—something it ultimately won with a riveting finale that helped secure a second season. Jamie Bell stars as Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island cabbage farmer initially straddling the fence as the American uprising turns into a full-fledged war. His father (Kevin McNally) and wife (Meegan Warner) are staunch Tory loyalists; his childhood friends, including the love of his »

    When the ex-amc drama debuts its fourth and final season on anything-goes Netflix later this summer, Joel Kinnaman’s tortured, streetwise detective will no longer have to watch his language.

    “We can curse now,” enthuses series creator Veena Sud of her newfound freedom on Netflix. “All of us were ecstatic because, in this world, someone like Holder would say the F-bomb quite a lot, which he does this season… Joel, especially, was very happy about that.”

  • 'Community' coming to hulu? No it's not

    NBC canceled the internet's most beloved television series Community back in May, but there was a glimmer of hope that Hulu might resurrect the Greendale Human Beings. Alas, that glimmer is no more: TVLine reports that Hulu has "abandoned" talks for a potential sixth season for the show, meaning all that "#sixseasonsandamovie" hashtagging has likely been for naught. Sony is still on the hunt for a new home for the series, but the clock is ticking — the cast's contracts expire June 30. Somewhere at Netflix, a telephone is ringing »

  • CBS reveals it's fall premiere dates and lineup

    CBS, which has traditionally rolled out just about all of its fall series during premiere week, is mixing things up some this year by stretching out its launches over a six-week period.

    “The addition of ‘Thursday Night Football’ provides the flexibility to strategically roll out our fall season in multiple waves, maximizing promotional platforms and scheduling opportunities to give our new and returning series the best possible launch,” Nina Tassler, chairman, CBS Entertainment, said in a statement.

    The fall schedule rollout, announced Tuesday, will see the Eye net using the season finales of summer dramas “Under the Dome” and “Extant” during premiere week. The initial week of the television season (Sept. 22-28) will also include an hourlong premiere (two back-to-back original episodes) of “The Big Bang Theory” on a Monday.

  • Six never before seen scenes from Breaking Bad now in Bluray set

    The equivalent of tomes have already been written on the virtues of AMC's "Breaking Bad," so with the June 3 release of the epic Blu-ray box set of the entire series, it seems appropriate to focus less on what we already know -- that, duh, the show's good -- and more on what goodies can be plundered in the set's extensive special features.While each episode has a commentary track to accompany it, there's also a bonus disc specifically geared toward the lead-up to the second half of Season Five, also known as the Final Eight. Here are a few of the highlights:-"Shocking Moments": As viewers we love to endlessly discuss and debate the moments from our favorite shows that completely broadsided us. But it's easy to forget that the cast from these shows undergoes a double-take when confronted with a first glimpse of upcoming episode scripts. Here everyone from Bryan Cranston, »

    Giannina Facio, Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer will produce for Scott Free while David Wolthoff and Larry Shuman will produce for the Shuman Company.

The greenlight comes halfway through the show’s initial eight-episode run, which has drawn solid ratings across Showtime’s linear and on-demand platforms.

  • Jason Ritter said to be making an appearance on "Girls"

    Jason Ritter spawn of famous funny man John Ritter is said to be making a cameo appearance on Lena Dunham's baby "Girls". Jason who stars in ABC's "The Parenthood" has long been a hit with fans due to his boy  next door looks. Nothing has leaked out of what Jason's role will be in the show but it has been said he will make his appearance in the sixth episode of the fourth season coming later this year. Let the rumors begin of what Jason's ties to the show will be. Personally we think he'll play someone's love interest, or they might throw us for a hook and tie him into some Lena awkward scene. Season three of Girls was met with mixed criticism as Lena took to the show to make it mostly about her, the ratings took a small hit but expect things to be shaken back up this year to get back to those numbers HBO has gotten accustomed to.
