I love how modern television is giving us season-long mini-series, which allow for a richer story than allowed in the time restraints of the big screen, but also create full story arcs that don’t suffer from the seasonal strain of normal television. One of the latest in this genre is Wayward Pines, the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series based on the Wayward Pines novels by Blake Crouch.
The ten-episode limited series ran on Fox from May 14th to July 23rd 2015. But while the series has officially come to an end, M. Night Shyamalan and author Blake Crouch have an idea for a possible Wayward Pines season 2. But doesn’t this completely defeat the purpose of the limited television series premise? Will a second season happen?

Mad Max: Fury Road is the sort of film that will inspire film nerd conversations for years to come. The craft behind it is so potent and sharp that we can’t really help it; there’s a lot to talk about in George Miller’s latest film, built as it is on his direction, the cinematography of John Seale, and the editing of Margaret Sixel.

This fall brings the terrifying elements of the highest mountain on the planet to the big screen in the mountain climbing drama Everest starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal and more.

Now an Everest featurette shows what that was like for the stars of the film, and you can watch it below. Read More »
Grammy winner turned actor Tyrese Gibson already counts two big franchises in his career with Transformers and Fast and Furious, but early this year we learned the actor was campaigning hard to be the new Green Lantern for the developing DC Comics cinematic universe.
Gibson seemed to hint that a big announcement was coming at Comic-Con, but the only thing we learned in San Diego was that the reboot of the aforementioned DC Comics property was called Green Lantern Corps., essentially confirming the previous rumor that there would be two Green Lanterns taking the lead this time, almost in a buddy cop kind of scenario.
Now the actor has confirmed that he has met with Warner Bros. Pictures about playing Green Lantern, but that’s about all he can say right now. Find out more about the potential of Tyrese Gibson playing Green Lantern below. Read More »
