I am so very happy to report that AMC has officially renewed their dramatic mystery television series The Killing for a second season. Deadline has confirmed. I have yet to begin watching Game of Thrones, so until I do, I will say this is the best show I’m currently watching. The two-hour premiere drew 4.7 million viewers (a number which includes encore airings), and the series has been able to sustain about 2.2 million viewers on a weekly basis. The Killing is the fourth AMC dramatic series to get renewed for a second season, with Rubicon being the only show to be cancelled.

The question now is what will the second season be about? The first season followed the aftermath and investigation into the homicide of a teenage girl named Rosie Larsen. The 13 episodes were based off a popular Danish series Forbrydelsen, which has aired two series with a third currently in production. The second series of the Danish tv production was set two years later and involves the death of a female lawyer.

Ben Affleck’s Eleven Favorite Heist Movies

With Oscar nominations less than two weeks away, one of the films that’s slowly been gaining momentum is Ben Affleck‘s fall hit The Town. The Boston-set heist movie was a hit with audiences and critics alike and, due to the fact that it’s been on DVD for a few weeks, it’s getting more buzz as a possible Best Picture nominee and for its supporting performances, most notably that of last year’s Best Actor nominee Jeremy Renner.

Being as it’s that time of year to not only give out awards, but also do top ten lists, Affleck – who not only starred in, but directed the film – put together his top eleven heist films of all time for The Daily Beast. It’s a very cool list that not only has a bunch of more modern films, but a few more obscure ones as well. Read More »
