Recently seen playing Aquaman in Justice League, Jason Momoa transitions from those waters (pardon the pun) in the ice cold chill of Braven, a tight fisted trailer that should be a fun watch.

The story centers on a family named Joe (Momoa) who, along with his dad (Stephen Lang) have a kill or be killed battled with a group of criminals who have stashed heroin in their cabin. Garret Dillahunt (Deadwood) plays the crew’s take no prisoners ringleader. The stakes of the story rise up another level as Joe’s daughter (Sasha Rossof) is also holed up in the cabin.

The highlight of the Braven trailer has Momoa throwing an axe at one of the soon to be dead bad guys, and that’s more than enough to get me to see this 93 minute flick. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!


Braven, which marks the directing debut of stunt coordinator Lin Oeding, hits theaters and On Demand February 2.

NUP_179125_0086.JPGNone of the lead characters in The Magicians have had it easy during their journey, and actress Stella Maeve has been able to explore the inherent courage and flaws of Julia Wicker throughout the show.

Julia’s journey had her being excluded from Brakebills after failing the entry test and leading her to find her own path through magic. This decision led to an initial estrangement with childhood best friend Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) during the first season but her all consuming desire to learn magic has ultimately put her in good stead.

Playing an intense character who has had her share of tragic events can be an all consuming process for Maeve, and during our interview with the actress she humorously admitted that it’s a hard character to shake once her work day has ended.

The Magicians, co-starring Olivia Taylor Dudley, airs Wednesday evenings on SyFy (9/8c).

NUP_180067_3442.JPGWhether the show is making you laugh or cry, there’s a single word that applies to everything about This Is Us: Genuine. We love Beth and Randall Pearson as a couple because it feels like we’re watching a real-life couple, and that’s no accident. Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson told us it’s the perfect combination of strong writing and an even stronger chemistry between the two of them. (Click on the media bar below to hear

Black LightningThere are plenty of perks for actors who get to star in superhero shows. First of all, it makes good on a lot of their childhood fantasies. (What kid didn’t wish for super powers at some point?) And second, it gives their friends and family some serious bragging rights. Cress Williams plays the title character on The CW’s new show, Black Lightning, and he said his family has already embraced his superhero status.

Black Lightning airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on The CW.

Fringe did it. The Flash has been doing it. And it’s the premise of Counterpart: Going into a parallel dimension. In the Starz sci-fi series, Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons plays a government bureaucrat who stumbles upon a secret — his agency has discovered a pathway between the dimensions. On top of the sci-fi aspect, it’s also a spy thriller, which Simmons says makes it different from anything else you’ve seen in the spy genre.


Counterpart returns to Starz with new episodes on January 28.

It seemed like yesterday when Evan Rachel Wood played a teenager trying to find her way in thirteen, but that was back in 2003. She’s received great notices for her work on the TV series Westworld, and she’ll next be seen in the drama Allure.

This time out the tables are turned, as Wood plays Laura, a house cleaner who bonds with a reticent teenager named Eva (Julia Sarah Stone). Attempting to break free from her regimented existence, Eva eventually runs away with Laura hoping for a better life. Asking a teenager to leave her family isn’t the most logical of choices, and as Laura’s mental instability comes to the forefront, the pair must find a way to find a solution to their seemingly insurmountable predicament.

Directed by Carlos Sanchez and Jason Sanchez, Allure hits theaters and On Demand March 16. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!!

NUP_178120_0284.JPG

As the host of Talking with Chris Hardwick and creator of Nerdist, Chris Hardwick has a full plate on his hands. He’s branching out with his production company in a recent deal with Blumhouse and he’s also a producer (along with LeBron James) on the hit NBC program The Wall. Recently NJ Transit officer Victor Ortiz won nearly $500,000 on the show and it was one of the show’s many emotional moments.

One of the projects strongest assets is the fact that it’s not your average game show wherein contestants and the host are kept at an arm’s length. Instead, Hardwick’s innate care for the participants shines through, and in the clip below he explains why he ends up being more than just a game show host on the show:



The Wall airs Monday evenings on NBC (8/7c).

148395_0181Roseanne Barr’s ’90s TV sitcom, Roseanne, is considered to be a classic today, and for good reason. The show, centered around a Midwestern lower-middle class family, dealt with a lot of topics that were controversial and — for a sitcom — unexpected at the time. As the TV networks continue their trend of mining old hits for new episodes, Roseanne is coming back. And there might be more controversy this time. Barr is unabashedly a Donald Trump supporter, and with his presidency polarizing the nation, will she dare to open that particular political Pandora’s Box in the reboot? (Click on the media bar below to hear Roseanne Barr)

Roseanne returns to ABC on Tuesday, March 27.

Steven SpielbergA lot has changed since Steven Spielberg started his moviemaking career so many years ago. With computers (and their talented programmers) now able to create almost any kind of special effect imaginable, it’s easy to overlook how ground-breaking some of Spielberg’s pre-CGI films were. Granted, some of them — even though they were state-of-the-art at the time — look downright old-fashioned today, but some have stood the test of time very well. We talked to Spielberg and asked which of his film’s effects have held up the best.

Spielberg’s latest masterpiece, The Post, stars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, and it’s in theaters now.

You know the old saying, “Clothes make the man”? Well, it works for women, too. Especially for Melissa Benoist, who has a couple of different wardrobes on Supergirl: One for awkward Kara Danvers, and one for her super-confident superhero alter ego. Benoist told us that from the moment she put on Supergirl’s suit for the first time, she felt an immediate reaction. (Click on the media bar below to hear Melissa Benoist)

Supergirl airs Monday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
