Alienist TV series

The director of True Detective is taking on another full TV series — this time a period thriller set in New York City. The Caleb Carr novel The Alienist will be adapted for television, with True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga (above, with Matthew McConaughey, who is not attached to this series) in the director’s chair. He and Eric Roth will exec produce, with Hossein Amini (Drive) writing the pilot script and also serving as exec producer.

Veep Season 4

Selina Meyer’s presidency and Pied Piper may be in pretty precarious situations at the moment, but the shows about them are doing just fine. HBO has renewed both Veep and Silicon Valley, following their season premieres last night.

That’s the good news. The disappointing caveat is that when Veep returns next year, it’ll be without series creator Armando Iannucci. More details on the Veep and Silicon Valley renewals, and Iannucci’s departure, after the jump.  Read More »

Daredevil final costume

For months, Marvel has been very circumspect about showing off the final costume design for DaredevilThat changed last week as the Netflix series prepped to launch on the streaming service, and with all episodes now available there’s no shortage of ways to see the final suit. But Marvel and Netflix are trying to keep the reveal in hand by offering up a couple of official images — at least one of which you’ve probably already seen on the show’s launch page within Netflix.

Daredevil fight scene

One of our favorite moments from Daredevil is the climactic fight sequence which ends Episode 2. Its probably my favorite television action sequence in recent years. So when I got a chance to talk to the cast and crew of Daredevil, all I wanted to know was how they pulled off that sequence. For those of you who haven’t yet watched the Netflix television series, the second episode ends with Daredevil in full vigilante mode, attempting to break into a baddie’s hideout to save someone.

The sequence lasts five and a half minutes long, with a three-minute fight in the middle, and is incredibly well choreographed. When I first saw it I almost stopped breathing as I realized the beauty of this single take. I’ll admit, it looks like the shot could be visually stitched together using three different takes (as was done in Birdman) but and according to those involved, the fight scene you see is the result of one lone single shot. Lets find out how they did that Daredevil fight scene, after the jump.

The Simpsons family

The Simpsons have finally become a victim of their own longevity. In 2001, the entire first season of the show was first released on DVD. Many fans – myself included – decided we wanted to have the entire series on our shelves. This continued for several years until the packaging changed changed with season 6. Fans complained because the series wouldn’t look uniform on their shelves and Fox offered an alternative. Eventually though, even that went away and every few months, a new season of The Simpsons was released on DVD. They then started coming out on Blu-ray in 2010.

Currently, there are 17 seasons of The Simpsons on DVD or Blu-ray but 25-plus seasons exist. Now fans will never be able to own them all. Executive producer Al Jean announced that all future seasons of The Simpsons will skip physical media and only be available digitally. Read More »
