Harrison Ford brought Han Solo back to the big screen in The Force Awakens, 32 years after Return of the Jedi. He resurrected Indiana Jones in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, 19 years after The Last Crusade. So it shouldn’t surprise anybody that he’s returning as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner: 2049, 35 years after starring in the original Blade Runner. It wasn’t easy to convince Ford to get on board with a sequel to the sci-fi classic, but once he saw the story, he was all in.


Blade Runner: 2049 opens in theaters on October 6.

After bringing back two of the biggest ’90s soaps — Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place — The CW is venturing back into retro soap territory with its reboot of the ’80s classic Dynasty. (Not surprisingly, all three were originally produced by the late king of TV soaps, Aaron Spelling.) While storylines about gay characters and racial issues are commonplace on TV today, they were considered risqué for the ’80s, but Dynasty wasn’t afraid to tackle them. And you can expect the diversity and adventurous storytelling spirit to continue in the new version. In fact, the lead role of Krystal Carrington — played by blonde bombshell Linda Evans in the original — has morphed into Cristal Carrington, played by Peruvian actress Nathalie Kelley. Kelley told us the change in her character’s background is going to make a big difference in the show. (Click on the media bar to hear Nathalie Kelley)

Dynasty premieres October 11 on The CW.

Mark Feuerstein drew on his own life story to create his new CBS comedy, 9JKL. For a time, he actually lived in an apartment building sandwiched between other family members, living in the apartments on either side of his. Feuerstein told us it was an interesting period in his life, as he balanced real-life drama with working on his previous comedy, Royal Pains. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mark Feuerstein)

9JKL premieres Monday, October 2 on CBS.

tew1One of the gaming industries more nightmarish titles (and I mean that in a good way), The Evil Within 2 is back with the further adventures of Detective Sebastian Castellanos. This time out he is forced to team up with Mobius, the organization that ruined his former life, to save his daughter Lily.

Taking place in an alternate dimension called STEM, Sebastian will face threats on every corner, and one of his antagonists is Stefano Valentini, a murderous photographer who’s featured in The Evil Within 2’s latest trailer. Along with giving us a glimpse into Stefano’s twisted mind (he sees the dark world of STEM as a thing of beauty!), the trailer also shows the pre-order bonus (”Last Chance Pack”) which features a bust handgun, along with crafting and health supplies.

Are you excited for The Evil Within 2? Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

The Evil Within 2 appropriately comes out October 13 (Friday the 13th) on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.

glasscastle18Recently seen as the morally complicated antagonist in War for the Planet of the Apes, Woody Harrelson delivers another standout performance in The Glass Castle. Based on writer Jeanette Walls‘ 2005 memoir, the film centers on Walls’ challenging upbringing with a loving yet alcoholic dad (Harrelson) and an often neglectful, artistic inclined mother (Naomi Watts). Brie Larson headlines the film as Walls.

I read the book and I thought it was like just the most incredible pieces of writing because it’s something that everybody could relate to,” said Harrelson. “Everybody has some aspect of this to their family. Whether it’s one or both of the parents, the siblings, the children - all of it. For some reason a lot of people seem to relate to it and I was no exception. I felt like it was very great writing and very powerful.”

The Glass Castle is now playing in select theaters.

Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated film Ready Player One appears to be an intriguing mix of past and future. The movie, based on Ernest Cline’s novel, takes place in a dystopian future where people work and play in a virtual reality world called the OASIS. When the founder of OASIS dies, a competition he’s created is held to give away his fortune and ownership of his virtual world. And that’s where the past comes in: Anorak’s Game is filled with homages to ’80s pop culture, including Back to the Future’s Delorean, Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T., and The A-Team’s van, along with appearances by characters from the DC Comics universe and A Nightmare on Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger. Of course, Spielberg’s own movies were a big part of that era, which left him with a big choice: Would he acknowledge his own ’80s projects or not? (Click on the media bar below to hear Steven Spielberg)

Ready Player One opens in theaters on March 30, 2018.

The Mindy Project has come a long way from where it started — figuratively and literally. It spent its first three seasons on broadcast TV, then successfully shifted to streaming service Hulu, where it will end its six-season run. Mindy Kaling, who created and stars in the series, told us the final season will definitely bring a different kind of closure to her character. (Click on the media bar below to hear Mindy Kaling)

The final season of The Mindy Project premieres September 12 on Hulu.

Inspired by Marlon Wayans’ own family life, Marlon centers on a nurturing but immature dad (Wayans) who is doing his best to co-parent his children with his ex-wife (Essence Atkins).

“I found that we create a forum that I can be as wild and physical as I can possibly be for a reason,” said Wayans who previously worked with longtime friend Atkins on the Haunted House films. “A character that’s grounded and has feelings and that you have a couple of moments within the show where I get to act. Sometimes you forget I know how to act. I went to Performing Arts High School - I do Dramatic Arts but I’ve never really embraced it because comedy is so hard.”

Click on the media bar to hear Wayans break down the difference between crafting comedy within a sitcom as opposed to a sketch show. Although both genres aim for comedy, the priorities are slightly different:



Marlon airs Wednesdays on NBC (9/8c).

theshow4Breaking Bad vet Giancarlo Esposito takes on directing duties and co-stars in the upcoming feature The Show, a thriller that explores the dark side of reality television. For the project Esposito has enlisted a solid ensemble cast (Josh Duhamel, Famke Janssen, James Franco, Sarah Wayne Callies, Caitlin Fitzgerald) to anchor his narrative.

The story centers on Adam Rogers (Duhamel), a TV host who collaborates with a ratings obsessed network executive (Janssen) to create a new program which features a live death every week. Esposito co-stars as the janitor who joins “the show” as a last ditch attempt to ensure his family’s survival.

Movies like Network and more recently Money Monster explore the far reaching effects media has on our own lives, and though The Show seems to have pure thriller elements, having an insightful artist like Esposito behind the helm should elevate the material.

Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

The Show hits theaters and On Demand September 15.
