Tatiana Maslany as Cosima in Orphan Black

Orphan Black fans have been saying for years that Tatiana Maslany should be a much bigger star than she is, and it seems Hollywood is finally listening. Earlier this year she snagged her first Emmy nom for the series, and now she’s in early negotiations for Stronger, Lionsgate’s Boston Marathon bombing drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal. David Gordon Green is directing.

Sherlock Victorian special trailer

Sherlock‘s cases have gone to some pretty weird places, but this next one tops them all. In a special airing this winter, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson (Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman) are going all the way back to their roots. Like, their original, literary, Arthur Conan Doyle roots, i.e., 19th century London.

We’ve already seen a clip and heard some details about the upcoming special, and today we finally have our first full-length trailer. Watch the Sherlock Victorian special trailer after the jump. Read More »

Inside Out Bing Bong

Bing Bong has plenty of reason to be suspicious of change in Inside Out. As Riley’s imaginary friend, he gets shoved further into the sidelines the older she gets. But at one point in the development and production process, director Pete Docter imagined the lovable creature as being a bit more disgruntled, and a bit more active in his resistance to change.

A just-released deleted scene shows an earlier version of Bing Bong that Docter describes as “a radical non-conformist” and “an even more extreme version of Joy.” Watch the Inside Out deleted scene after the jump.  Read More »

Eddie Murphy in A Thousand Words

Eddie Murphy gave us some of the best-loved comedies of the ’80s, including Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America, and for that we’ll always have a soft spot for him. But the past several years have been a rough time for Eddie Murphy fans. He hasn’t been seen onscreen since 2012’s A Thousand Words, and before that he was mostly starring in stuff like Imagine That and Meet Dave.

Maybe his next project will be the one to turn things around. Murphy is teaming with Brian Grazer for what the producer calls a “raw,” “tour-de-force” project, to be distributed by Netflix. Read about the Eddie Murphy Netflix project after the jump.

Update: A source who spoke with Deadline cautions that the project is “too premature to announce at this point in time; that details weren’t even locked down from a project or contract standpoint.” Original story follows. Read More »

Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension trailer

Paranormal Activity certainly wasn’t the first found-footage movie, but it’s a huge part of the reason why the format has become so ubiquitous. These films are cheap to make, since they actually benefit from avoiding cutting-edge technology and big-name actors. And because they’re so cheap that even a modest success will turn a big profit, while even the worst flops are barely a dent in the studio’s finances.

But all things must end, even demonic spirits named Toby. This fall’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension — either the fifth or sixth Paranormal Activity movie, depending on whether you want to count the spinoff The Marked Ones — is supposedly the last Paranormal Activity ever. Watch the Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension trailer and TV spots after the jump.
