Cutler Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line/M-G-M Release Date: August 22, 2014 Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia Hall is so luminous that she actually persuades us that budding rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) the coolest kid in a Portland, Oregon high school, would fall hard at first sight for her solitary cellist. What’s even more amazing is that we continue to give credence through this as we get to know Mia better. She is meant […]Read On »

As the first season of AMC’s THE KILLING, adapted from the Danish series FORBRYDELSEN by executive producer Veena Sud, was drawing to a close, it seemed more and more clear that Billy Campbell’s character, mayoral candidate Darren Richmond, was guilty of murdering Rosie Larsen. But then it was revealed that one of the investigating detectives, Joel Kinnaman’s Stephen Holder, had tampered with evidence to incriminate Richmond, so THE KILLING’s first season ended with nobody knowing who killed Rosie Larsen. This lack of closure angered a number of viewers, who felt they had been led to believe the killer would be […]Read On »

KINNAMAN: She has a very strong, intuitive strength and she kind of goes into the mind of the killer, and Holder comes from the street and that’s how he reasons and he can tell a liar […]Read On »

THE KILLING begins its second season tonight, Sunday, on AMC in a two-hour block starting at 8 PM before settling into its regular timeslot at 9 PM next Sunday. Based on the hit Danish series FORBRYDELSEN and developed for American television by Veena Sud. THE KILLING Season 2 follows the homicide investigation of the murder of Seattle-area teenager Rosie Larsen, as well as the crime’s devastating effect on her family. A lot of people were irate that the first season ended without the killer being revealed (perhaps especially because the advertising had so strongly implied the revelation would occur). However, […]Read On »

AMC’s new series THE KILLING, airing Sundays, is based on the hit Danish series FORBRYDELSEN, which follows not only the detectives investigating the murder of a young woman, but also the crime’s effect on the community. Bill Campbell (THE ROCKETEER, THE 4400, ONCE AND AGAIN) plays mayoral candidate Darren Richmond, whose campaign and perhaps personal life are impacted by the situation. Sitting down in a hotel restaurant in Pasadena at the winter Television Critics Association press tour, Campbell talks about his new gig – and about his occasional need to leave Hollywood behind and literally go out to sea. ASSIGNMENT […]Read On »
