DEADPOOL does that, and thereafter reliably supplies humor, romance, hardcore violence, a wee bit of horror (depending on your definition), Marvel Comics mythology and assaults on the fourth wall that magically don’t compromise the […]Read On »

The entirety of the first season of ABC’s new half-hour comedy MIXOLOGY, Wednesdays at 9:30 PM, takes place over the course of one evening at a singles’ bar. We go back and forth in time as we see how various couples do or don’t hook up throughout the night. One of the scripted series’ producers is Ryan Seacrest, who is known largely for his reality fare. Adan Canto plays MIXOLOGY’s bartender Dominic, a well-intentioned fellow who is a bit clueless when it comes to the expectations prompted by romantic entanglements. Canto spent last season playing serial killer Paul Torres on […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Hugh Jackman, Hiroyuki Sunada, Famke Janssen, Will Yun Lee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Haruhiko Yamanouchi Writers: Mark Bomback and Scott Frank Director: James Mangold Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: July 26, 2013 The major problem with THE WOLVERINE is not that the title character – or for that matter, Hugh Jackman, the actor who plays him – cannot headline a feature film. Wolverine, aka Logan, an immortal mutant whose skeleton has had the metal adamantine added to it, has proven to be a compelling figure, both in the Marvel Comics that introduced him and […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: THE FOLLOWING’s creator Kevin Williamson talks serial killers and Season 1

The FBI dive deeper into the mind of serial killer Joe Carroll in THE FOLLOWING | (c) 2013 David Fiesbrecth/Fox

Kevin Williamson famously created the big-screen SCREAM franchise and, as executive producer/writer brought L.J. Smith’s VAMPIRE DIARIES novels to television in the successful series still running on the CW, where Williamson had previously created DAWSON’S CREEK. Williamson’s new series creation, THE FOLLOWING, is both bloodier and more serious than his previous work. THE FOLLOWING, which airs on Fox Mondays at 9 PM, deals with haunted FBI Special Agent Ryan Harding, played by Kevin Bacon. Ryan once before put away charming, brilliant serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), at great psychological and personal cost. In the first episode, Joe escaped from […]Read On »
