Charlie Rose is one of the few television personalities in the US that consistently does long-form interviews for artists and entertainment figures. When someone shows up on Rose’s show, you can reliably expect an in-depth conversation that will offer ideas that go much deeper than sound byte level. So having the cast and creators of Gone Girl on the show — author/screenwriter Gillian Flynn, director David Fincher, and stars Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck — is a great thing. This Charlie Rose Gone Girl talk is a half hour of in-depth conversation about the film and the personalities that created it. Read More »

A day rarely goes by of late without news on a new film-to-TV development. The latest news is of an Illusionist TV series, based on the 2006 film from director Neil Burger and stars Ed Norton, Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel.

Each of the Guardians of the Galaxy were lovable in their own special way, but if we’re being honest the real heart of the team was Groot. The taciturn tree-creature was equal parts badass and sweet, and his adorable dance moves made him the must-have toy of the season. Too bad Disney’s been dragging its feet on actually putting out said toy.
The good news is that the company is getting closer, as Dragon Models announced today that it will release a 7″ Groot toy. This one looks a lot more like the Groot of the film than that earlier Funko bobblehead did. The bad news is that it’s still not really the Groot toy we want. Hit the jump for details on the new Groot toy. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet. Why haven’t you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet?)
