One of Amazon’s new pilots early this year was Bosch, featuring Titus Welliver (Lost) as Harry Bosch, the hero of seventeen novels by Michael Connelly. Bosch is a veteran detective working homicide for the LAPD, which naturally means he’s exposed to some seriously nasty business. Connelly’s novels follow him through years of Bosch’s evolution, with the books roughly keeping pace with the years in which they were published, spanning over 20 years.
The Amazon pilot led to a series pickup, and now we have the first Bosch teaser that represents the forthcoming show. Check it out below. Read More »

I didn’t have much doubt that a distributor would quickly move on Sylvain Chomet‘s The Illusionist.

Hopefully SPC can find an audience for this picture; it looks simply beautiful. Check some previously posted footage below. [Variety]
