While Megan Hilty is best known for her Broadway turns in 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL and WICKED, moving to TV was much easier than expected when she landed the role of Ivy Lynn on NBC’s new hit series SMASH. It’s set in the world of Broadway, with Ivy being a long-time chorus girl on Broadway who is given the chance to workshop the role of Marilyn Monroe on the series’ fictitious play BOMBSHELL. Of course things don’t go as planned, with unexpected rivalry with newbie Karen (Katharine McPhee) and now, with a movie star (Uma Thurman) coming in to …Read On »

Movie Review: DETENTION

Stars: Josh Hutcherson, Shanley Caswell, Spencer Locke, Dane Cook, Parker Bagley Writers: Joseph Kahn and Mark Palermo Director: Joseph Kahn Distributor: Samuel Goldwyn Release Date: April 13, 2012 DETENTION is being sold as tongue-in-cheek horror, a la SCREAM. It actually is closer to full-blown parody, with a multitude of filmic targets from the Eighties and Nineties. It is unclear who exactly this is made for, because the people who grew up with the movies referenced here have now seen other parodies, while modern real-life high school students tend to have more recent pop culture frames of reference. As to the …Read On »

In Part 2 of Assignment X’s exclusive interview with Fran Kranz, the actor talks more about THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, plus the making of Joss Whedon’s film version of Shakespeare’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, being on Broadway in DEATH OF A SALESMAN and working with Mike Nichols and Andrew Garfield. ASSIGNMENT X: The Shakespeare readings at Joss Whedon’s house have been talked about for years.  Were you already part of that group, or did MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING kind of come out of the blue for you? KRANZ: No, I had done a reading of MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. I …Read On »

Interview: WRATH OF THE TITANS composer Javier Navarrete fights for gods and men

In WRATH OF THE TITANS, a menagerie of ancient beasts and angry gods are unleashed upon the world of men, all due to the declining prayers directed at Zeus and his brethren on Mount Olympus. However, Hollywood’s cinematic worship towards ancient Greece’s supreme being, let alone legendary deities in general, is more than boisterous given the current films inspired by the mythic clashes of old. Not only are these pictures a boon for today’s CGI effects wizards to indulge in their Ray Harryhausen-inspired love of stop-motion giant monsters, but they’re equally heaven-sent for composers to unleash the own musically epic …Read On »

It’s fine …Read On »

There may or may not be one more scene added to THE AVENGERS before its release. At a press conference on Thursday, AVENGERS star Robert Downey, Jr. announced, “We are shooting one more scene tonight. Not kidding.” At a second press conference immediately following this, AVENGERS writer/director Joss Whedon was asked about this. His response: “It’s Robert. Of course he’s kidding.” Who’s the real kidder here? Tell us what you think! Our guess, is it might be a new coda that will appear after the end credits like all the Marvel movies tend to drop in at the last minute. …Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Brian White, Amy Acker Writers: Joss Whedon & Drew Goddard Director: Drew Goddard Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: April 13, 2012 The first thing that should be said about THE CABIN IN THE WOODS is that it is an awesome movie. Unfortunately, the next thing that must be said is that discussing specifics about what makes it so awesome is liable to dampen the experience for those seeing it for the first time. The good news is that it holds up just great on …Read On »

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS opens Friday. Produced by Joss Whedon, directed by Drew Goddard and written by both, the highly intelligent horror movie is about five college students who go to the title location and, in the tradition of horror movies about cabins and woods, have a whole lot of experiences they neither expected nor wanted, although there’s much more to the story. The film got a quick greenlight from MGM and was filmed in 2009 – and then sat in limbo when MGM got into financial troubles. Lionsgate came to the rescue and is releasing CABIN on, appropriately …Read On »
