The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
Although the 'Jackass' brand seems to have officially run its course after a TV series and three (very successful) movies, the name will live on in a new spinoff movie titled 'Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.' Awkward title aside, it sounds like it'll feature everything about the series that has entranced and disgusted so many people. Namely, grown adults doing terrible things to themselves and others in public places.
Despite all of the controversy surrounding author Orson Scott Card's political beliefs, the upcoming adaptation of his celebrated novel 'Ender's Game' continues to truck onward. First and foremost, the film is making a major appearance at Comic-Con 2013, where it will probably preach to the choir of already-sold geeks. Can it appeal to normal people? Will a new series of character posters featuring actors like Harrison Ford convince people that this is a movie for them?
Things have been awfully quiet on the 'RoboCop' front, with information about the upcoming remake of the classic 1987 film film slowing to a trickle. But with Comic-Con 2013 literally right around the corner, it looks like marketing on the film is looking to leap forward in a major way. The film's viral site has been updated, giving us a glimpse of some the nifty stuff that'll feature in the film.
After years of pumping out amazingly awful, bargain bin TV movies, SyFy finally hit the big time with 'Sharknado.' For the first time, one of the network's movies was so silly, so dumb and so instantly meme-able that the world-at-large took notice and made it a thing. People were actually talking about 'Sharknado'! Real people! So it's no surprise that SyFy has announced a sequel. After all, they probably have a spare $137 lying around to fund it.
It's a really good time to be a fan of the X-Men. You've got 'The Wolverine' arriving next week and you have the increasingly epic 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' opening next summer. What could be better? How about a little taste of the latter at the end of the former?
From the moment Felicity Jones was cast in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' fans have been wondering who she could possibly be playing and everyone came to the same conclusion: she's playing the Spidey antihero and on-and-off-again love interest known as the Black Cat. But now Jones has dropped a few more hints about her mystery role and it sounds like we were all very, very wrong.
What's more powerful than a bunch of giant robots and giant monsters? What's more powerful than Adam Sandler and all his buddies? This weekend gave us a definitive answer: a lovable supervillain voiced by Steve Carell. 'Despicable Me 2' triumphed at the box office for the second week in a row, beating out newcomers like 'Grown Ups 2' and 'Pacific Rim' and making it look easy.
The 'Saving Mr. Banks' trailer has arrived via our friends at Moviefone, giving us the first footage of what promises to be one of the most talked about movies this awards season. We'd expect nothing less from a movie about the making of 'Mary Poppins,' with the great Tom Hanks playing Walt Disney and the equally great Emma Thompson playing P.L. Travers.
