TNT's 'Monday Mornings' Preview: The Next Great Medical Drama

January 30th, 2013 9:00am EST
Monday Mornings
Next week, TNT unveils Monday Mornings, hoping that it will be another winner on the network's roster of original series. They don't need to worry: medical dramas haven't been this good since ER and Chicago Hope.

The latter comparison is particularly apt, as Monday Mornings is executive produced by David E. Kelley, who also created Chicago Hope, and Bill D'Elia, who worked closely with Kelley on that series, serves as this one's showrunner. Working from the novel of the same name by CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the result is something that mixes Kelley's knack for creating compelling drama with...

September 15th, 2011 6:02am EDT
The Tempest
"Across the Universe's" Julie Taymor shakes up Shakespeare with her adaptation of "The Tempest," retrofitting the fantastical tale with a female lead, casting Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren in what is usually the male role of Prospero.

The storyline follows the newly coined Prospera (Mirren), an exiled magician who uses her powers to call upon a tempest to bring her enemies to the island she's been forced to call home, not knowing that it will bring a suitor to her daughter, Miranda (Felicity Jones).

The Miramax/Touchstone release also stars David Strathairn, Djimon Hounsou, R...

September 14th, 2011 11:18am EDT
Harry's Law
‘Harry’s Law’ is gearing up for a second season on NBC, and star Kathy Bates is ready to go.

The show was one of NBC’s bright spots last season, and the network is confident enough to move the show to Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EDT starting Sept. 21.

Bates, for one, is having a ball. In a conference call, Bates says she is riding the momentum from the first season, and she’s enjoying it now. She notes the challenges of such a physical job and learning so many lines. “You know, it was a steep learning curve last year,” she says, “But I’m really enjoying it. I really enjoy going into work ever...

Rango
"An animated comedy for smart moviegoers" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times) that is "like nothing you've ever seen" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), the hilarious and imaginative Rango saddles up in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack with Digital Copy and on standard DVD on Friday, July 15, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Revamped 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Still Underwhelms

April 12th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
LOLA
NBC brought back Law & Order: Los Angeles last night with two all-new episodes. While the series definitely improved, it's a shame that only brought it from unwatchable to passable.

The show decided to bring back some of the hallmarks of the franchise, including an opening narration and title sequence, but they're not great. The theme was so quiet that I had to listen closely to even follow it, not like the distinctive themes from the previous editions, and the title sequence was a slow-motion affair that felt overdone. Both failed to evoke the fondness of their predecessors. And ...

Johnny Depp Looks Cool & Casual At 'Rango' Premiere

February 15th, 2011 8:19am EST
Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp attended the "Rango" Los Angeles premiere wearing jeans, a brown leather jacket and his signature hat.

The family-oriented animated adventure stars Depp as a lizard who leaves the comfort of home in order to explore the outside world. Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher and Alfred Molina also star.

Apparently, Captain Jack Sparrow's running inspired the film. Depp studied reptiles to perfect some of the pirate's mannerisms, and when it came time to play a lizard on film, he knew exactly what was required.

'Law & Order: LA' Will Save Terrence Howard From Bad Movies

Terrence Howard-ALO-097182.jpg
Law & Order: Los Angeles lined up an impressive cast even by the franchise standards. Terrence Howard and Alfred Molina join the newest edition as alternating D.A.s in the standard half cop/half law drama. Howard believes his return to TV will improve his movie career, he told media in a conference call on Tuesday.

“What’s interesting is a couple years ago I was in Toronto and bumped into Reese Witherspoon,” Howard recalled. “She said, ‘You’re doing too many movies.’ So I had to think about what she said and it was true. I was just jumping on whatever I could jump on because I just wanted ...

NBC Fall Season Preview: Spies, CIA Plots And Outsourcing

September 20th, 2010 11:45am EDT
NBC Fall Preview
NBC is likely getting tired of being referred to as "fourth place NBC." Last year's Jay Leno experiment was clearly a disaster and served as a boon for TBS, which won the Conan sweepstakes. This fall, NBC has fresher programming. With aging favorites and risky new underdogs, does the network have a shot at moving up the ratings ladder, even to third place? Time will tell. Stranger things have happened. Here's a look at what new shows could make the grade and what's in store for old favorites.

'The Sorcerer’s Apprentice' Intertwines Science And Magic

July 16th, 2010 10:27am EDT
Sorcerer
Customarily science and magic are in direct opposition to each other. Science seeks logical answers to questions through proven experimentation, whereas magic relies on faith to turn impossible feats into possible ones.

What makes “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” fascinating is that it rejects convention, intertwining the concepts of science and magic. This film implies that great scientific knowledge leads to refined skills as a conjurer, which really makes you wonder, if Einstein was a sorcerer would his grasp of physics make him powerful?

As the lore states in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice,' 'Inception,' & More

Sorcerer
I saw one of this week’s films “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” last Thursday; however as part of my agreement in seeing the advanced screening, I am not allowed to share my opinion on the film until its release on Wednesday. Keep your eyes peeled for a review later this week though.

There are only three films opening during the current week: “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” “Inception,” and “The Concert.” Personally I’m incredibly excited about seeing “Inception” because I’m a huge fan of both Leonardo DiCaprio and director Christopher Nolan.

In the latter part of the 19th century, Japan opened up for trade with the West. Merchant adventurers arrived from all over the world, many of them English. Some traded in silk and rice and lived in enclaves around the "treaty ports." They brought their families and their followers and created private mini-empires where they tried to embrace this extraordinary culture, its beauties and its dangers... A dream of Japan... Love and nature in disguise... All the world's a stage...

Test Audiences For 'Da Vinci Code' Hate Tom Hanks' Hairstyle

Tom Hanks
The Da Vinci Code movie has been thrown into chaos after test audiences admitted they hated Tom Hanks' hairstyle. The normally short-haired actor grew his locks for the role of Robert Langdon in the adaptation of Dan Brown's best-selling novel, but viewers admitted to researchers they found his lank locks a major turn-off. A studio insider told The Sun newspaper: "Much of the talk is about the hair. But it's too late to fix it."

Hanks admitted to Japanese Prime Minister Junichro Koizumi earlier this month he had modelled his 'bowl cut' hairstyle on the world leader. On meeting Koizumi,...
