    Marvel Underwhelms With Brief 'Avengers' Showing, Inexplicable Cast Appearance & Nothing Else

    D23 Event Is An All Too Brief & Nearly Pointless TeaserAfter Marvel’s much-discussed no-show at last month’s Comic-Con, the hype machine has been turning fast leading up to this weekend’s Disney D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center. They’ll be pulling out all the stops, right? “Avengers” footage, revealing those two newly-dated mystery projects, surprise appearances and who knows what else. Well, some of that wound up being true, but Marvel’s showing at D23 wasn’t nearly as exciting as the speculation leading up to it.

    Say what??? OWN To Premiere A Black Show On The Network

    Things must be really desperate at the Oprah Winfrey Network. In a last ditch effort to get viewers, OWN has been forced to create a black show for the network (and NO The Gayle King Show and the The Best of the Gayle King Show don't count). I'm refering to their new reality show Sweetie Pie's. I guess that reality show with The Judds wasn't quite making it.

    TIFF Trailer Watch: Winterbottom's Trishna Moves Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles to India

    The teaser for Michael Winterbottom's Trishna, reveals a translation of Thomas Hardy's romantic English novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles to a modern-day setting in India. This is Winterbottom's third Hardy adaptation, following 1996's Jude (Jude the Oscure) and 2000's The Claim (The Mayor of Casterbridge). For Trishna, Winterbottom replaces the fervent English wilds with rural and urban Indian backdrops in Jaipur and Mumbai for a love affair between moneyed businessman Jay (Riz Ahmed, Four Lions) and working class Trishna (Freida Pinto, Slumdog Millionaire).

    Greetings From Provincetown

    Which is as astonishingly gay as I had come to expect. And perhaps not the best place to go on a family road trip. Not that my family is remotely homophobic... its just their idea of fun isn't dancing at gay bars all night (well, its my mother's idea of fun but not anyone else's).

    For You "Law & Order" Freaks Out There...

    I understand. You'll still missing S. Epatha Merkerson as Lt Van Buren on Law & Order. Life just hasn't been the same since Jesse Martin left. And there are some who feel that the show seriously lost its groove after Richard Brooks was taken off after the second season.

    Joel Edgerton Talks Original Tora Bora Beginnings Of 'Kill Bin Laden'; Gets Ready For 'Great Gatsby'

    It has been a pretty remarkable past couple of years for Australian actor Joel Edgerton. While he made his first tentative steps in Hollywood with a role in a couple of the "Star Wars" prequels, "King Arthur" and "Smokin' Aces," it would be the movies he made as part of his Blue-Tongue Films collective that would raise his profile. "The Square" and "Animal Kingdom" were both breakout films and since then, Edgerton has never been busier. He's got a wide variety of roles on his plate with the horror remake "The Thing," the fantasy "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" and the MMA drama "Warrior" all set to hit theaters, with roles in Kathryn Bigelow's Mark Boal-scribed untitled black-ops thriller (aka "Kill Bin Laden") and Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" in the works. In short, the actor is on the cusp of becoming a household name and a familiar face.

    Torchwood: Miracle Day, Episode 7, “Immortal Sins,” Recap and Review: Tightly Plotted, Romantic

    Torchwood: Miracle Day, Episode 7, “Immortal Sins,” Recap and Review: Tightly Plotted, Romantic

    Animatronic aliens hit Torchwood: Miracle Day, reports critic David Chute:After episode seven, no one will be able to argue any longer that Miracle Day “isn’t Torchwood” -- not without revealing themselves to be terminally full of shit. There’s even a small and memorably nasty animatronic alien on display, which is supposedly an iron clad indication or orthodoxy – although, thankfully MD seems to be stopping far short of pinning the underlying global health care conspiracy on aliens. Resorting to that creaky SF equivalent of a deus ex machina would be an act of desperation unworthy of a creator and showrunner as cool as Russell T Davies.
