We were rather surprised to learn that Tyler Perry would be starring in a David Fincher movie, and as it turns out Tyler Perry was too. The multi-hyphenate confessed he didn’t know who Fincher was when he signed on for the Gillian Flynn adaptation Gone Girl. If he had, he probably wouldn’t have joined at all.

Ben Affleck knows a thing or two about negative PR, but even his Gigli-era troubles have nothing on Nick Dunne’s. The latest Gone Girl TV spot stacks the deck against Nick, pegging him as the prime suspect in the disappearance of his beautiful wife Amy (Rosamund Pike).
Of course, if the case were that straightforward there’d be no movie for David Fincher to make. Fortunately, as those who’ve read Gillian Flynn‘s book know, he’ll have plenty of twists and turns to work with before reaching the ugly conclusion. Hit the jump to watch the new Gone Girl TV spot.

At HBO, shows are sometimes given a new season the day after they premiere. The network looks at reviews, buzz, and ratings, and can immediately decide to get behind the creator’s vision for at least one more year. That’s the best-case scenario. Other shows, ones which don’t hit a home run right off, might take a few weeks. For The Leftovers, co-created by the always-controversial Damon Lindelof and author Tom Perrotta, it took seven weeks.
No matter, though, as HBO has just renewed The Leftovers for a second season. It’s a move that’s sure to please fans of the show and leave non-fans scratching their heads. I put myself in the first category and we can discuss The Leftovers season 2, and watch a “Catch Up” trailer, below. Read More »

It’s too soon to call it a trend, but between the adaptation of Death Note (which Gus Van Sant was erroneously said to be part of) and now this new adaptation of Soul Reviver, are we about to see more US interest in bringing anime and manga stories to the screen? Regardless, The Last Samurai producer Marshall Herskovitz and director Ed Zwick are putting together a Soul Reviver movie, adapting the supernatural action series created by Tohru Fujisawa and Manabu Akishige.
The series features a vision of the world in which “the dead can be brought back to life, if their souls can be restored before disappearing into the void.” Between life and the void, former detective Jin Ryuusuke and dead high school girl Sekimachi Kurara salvage souls before they are gone forever.
