This spring marks the end of an era. For the characters of Mad Men, that era is the tumultuous 1960s; for viewers of Mad Men, it’s the show’s seven-season run as one of the finest dramas on television.
AMC split the last season of Mad Men into two parts, Breaking Bad-style, so that the first half aired last year while the second is scheduled to kick off in April. To prepare us for the end, the network has released a slew of promo pics for the final season. See the Mad Men final season images after the jump.
UPDATE: The first Mad Men final season promo has just been released, along with one more photo — check ’em out at the end of the post. Read More »

The Oscars are just a month away, which means you’re running out of time if you still need to catch up on the Best Picture contenders. Fortunately, AMC has a solution for those who’ve fallen behind. The theater chain has revealed plans for its annual Best Picture Showcase, a marathon screening event of all the Best Picture nominees.
If you decide to go this route, you can either split the eight films over two consecutive Saturdays, or attempt to see all eight of them in one epic 20-hour sit. More details on the AMC Best Picture Showcase after the jump. Read More »

Tuesday, the hackers that exposed Sony’s internal workings went a step further and issued a big threat, invoking 9/11 in a statement that promised action against theaters showing The Interview. But the Department of Homeland Security — a group that really doesn’t mess around when it comes to this sort of thing — said there was no credible information to indicate an actual threat. Sony was fairly magnanimous about the situation, saying it would allow theaters to make the decision to show the film or not, even if bookings had already been locked in.
Last night Carmike Cinemas and Bow Tie Cinemas pulled the film, and today in a precedent-setting move, the five major theater chains in the US and Canada all dropped The Interview.
Update: Sony is now considering a VOD release of the film; more info below.
Update #2: Sony has canceled the December theatrical release of The Interview. Full statement below.
Update #3: Sony has now confirmed they have “no further release plans” for the film while American Intelligence has officially linked North Korea to the Sony hack. Details below.

The TV schedule will be jam-packed with new shows for the next few weeks, some much more promising-looking than others. However, even within that crowded slate there’s one highly anticipated project that’ll be conspicuously absent. The Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul doesn’t premiere until early next year, which means we’ve got several months to wait still.
But of course, AMC would rather you didn’t forget about it in the meantime. So the network has debuted another brief Better Call Saul teaser, hinting that even before Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) remade himself as Saul Goodman, he had a whole lot of Saul Goodman in him. Hit the jump to see the latest Better Call Saul teaser.

Rick has a very important message in the new The Walking Dead Season 5 trailer: “Never let your guard down.” Which, on the one hand, seems kind of unnecessary. Surely anyone who’s survived this long zombie-infested world long enough to hear that advice, did so by staying alert at all times.
On the other, though, it never hurts to be reminded. Especially since, as this new promo shows, Rick and his friends seem to be in more trouble than ever before. Check out the The Walking Dead Season 5 trailer after the jump.
