One of the best performers in Daredevil is returning to the show for season two. Sure, Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio both impressed in their roles as Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk, respectively, but Rosario Dawson brought an unparalleled spark to her scenes. There wasn’t enough of her in the first season, as her character Claire Temple came and went over the course of thirteen episodes. But we’ll see more of her soon enough, as Dawson’s deal with Netflix also suggests she’ll appear in the rest of Marvel’s Netflix series, too. Read More »

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.

We’ve seen the first five episodes of Marvel’s new Netflix television series Daredevil and very much enjoyed it. Instead of giving you a review (heck, you’re going to binge watch it over the weekend, right?) I thought we’d list ten things we were surprised to learn about the Netflix Daredevil TV series.

Netflix’s first Marvel show, Daredevil, hits the platform on April 10. The 13 episode season marks the start of a huge crossover event that will continue with AKA Jessica Jones, go into Luke Cage, then debut Iron Fist before ending in The Defenders. We may even see a second season of Daredevil in the middle there. It all depends on the success of the first season, but up ’til now, we haven’t see a lot from Daredevil.
We’ve seen stills. We’ve seen a cool teaser trailer. And now more Daredevil photos have come online, which focus less on Matt Murdock, played by Charlie Cox. These focus more on the side characters. Characters like Night Nurse, played by Rosario Dawson, Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll), Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and most excitingly, a tease of Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, played by Vincent D’Onofrio.
Below, see the latest Daredevil photos.
Update: There’s also a new “motion poster” featuring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock. See that below.

As the end of the year approaches, critics and awards voters everywhere are scrambling to put together their lists of 2014’s best performances.

The 9 Kisses video series pairs off 18 of the year’s best actors, ranging from established A-listers (Reese Witherspoon) to recent breakthroughs (Jenny Slate). Each couple plays out an intimate moment in a public setting at night, though the details within those parameters vary wildly. Some of the kisses are passionate and warm, others are awkward or funny. Watch the 9 Kisses videos after the jump. Read More »

Chris Rock is back in full force right now. His new movie, Top Five, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, opens in a couple weeks. And he also wrote an incredible essay for THR on what it’s like to be black in the Hollywood system. Read that link, then come back here to watch the Top Five red-band trailer. This edit has a lot of cursing and a great scene with Kevin Hart alluded to in the essay, but it doesn’t give away the movie’s funniest scene. (Be thankful for that, as the funniest bit is also one of the more unexpected moments.) Read More »

True Detective Season 2 already has a great male cast in place, with Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn all signed on for major roles. But it’s had a tougher time trying to pin down the female lead.
Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams have both been named as possibilities in recent weeks, but neither’s clinched the role quite yet. Now seven more actresses are entering the mix, including Rosario Dawson and Jessica Biel. Hit the jump for the latest on the True Detective Season 2 female lead casting.

On a routine day, the daughter of a man played by Ryan Reynolds is kidnapped from his car, and that might be the least unusual crime in the film The Captive. Atom Egoyan directs a story about the suspicion that falls upon a family as an investigator (Rosario Dawson) attempts to unravel the crime. But then a camera is found, and all involved must confront the fact that something more unusual is going on with the disappearance of the young girl (Alexia Fast). In The Captive trailer Ryan Reynolds confronts a couple stages of the crime, and we see how the other people involved (Mireille Enos, Kevin Durand, Scott Speedman, and Bruce Greenwood) are involved as well.
