The battle for late-night TV domination has been an ongoing one, but I think John Oliver has just taken the cake. At least for this round of “who can make the best joke about the closure of a wax museum of past presidents?”
John Oliver can. By buying five wax mannequins and recruiting four Academy Award nominees to star in a dramatic trailer for his fake Warren G. Harding biopic. And getting Anna Kendrick and Laura Linney to fight for the love of a creepy life-size replica of Warren G. Harding.

Hours ago we got a peek behind the scenes of Better Call Saul season two. Now we’ve got a little look ahead at season three, which will premiere in 2017.
As a spinoff to Breaking Bad, one of the most acclaimed TV dramas of all time, Better Call Saul came pre-loaded with massive hype and sky-high expectations. And the show has delivered. Over the course of its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has proven to be a worthy successor and complement to that earlier series — but it’s also emerged as its own thing, hilarious and thrilling and surprisingly heart-wrenching.

There are a few revelations in the first behind the scenes set video of AMC’s upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. The show stars Bob Odenkirk as the slimy lawyer from Breaking Bad, and if you haven’t followed along with the early promos for the show, one revelation here is that Saul Goodman isn’t the guy’s real name. He’s really Jimmy McGill. That’s just the very tip of the character expansion Saul is getting in this new show, however, and I’m so in. (Who am I kidding, I was already in.)
The video also features tons of the new actors and below the line talent discussing how special it is to be back in the A.B.Q — Albuquerque, New Mexico — to shoot the series. Check out the Better Call Saul set video below. Read More »

Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley helped change the comic book landscape when the first issue of their four-issue Batman reinvention The Dark Knight Returns was released in 1986. Those four issues have influenced film and television as well as comics; Christopher Nolan’s three Batman films are shaped to a great degree by the grim, violent vision of Batman put forth by Miller & Co.
The Dark Knight Returns has never been directly adapted to film or television, however, until now. Warner Bros. animation label DC Comics Premiere Movies is creating a two-part adaptation of the four-issue series. The good part is: Peter Weller (RoboCop) has been hired to voice Bruce Wayne and Batman. Read More »
