Another Marvel ‘Avenger’ Is Officially On The Way To The Big Screen

124Marvel Studios has just issued a press release confirming that principal photography started today in San Francisco on its newest Super Hero franchise, Marvel’s ANT-MAN. Directed by PEYTON REED, the film brings one of Marvel comics original founding members of the AVENGERS into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and stars PAUL RUDD as the titular anti-hero.

Caught on the red carpet at this year’s San Diego ComicCon, where he was promoting the upcoming (and highly anticipated) film, RUDD seemed almost giddy with the excitement of being involved and attending SDCC for the first time.

Marvel’s ANT-MAN is slated for theatrical release 7/15/15.

Bear Grylls Is ‘Running Wild’ In An Unforgettable Adventure With Tom Arnold

25Airing tonight on NBC, RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS sees the world-renowned survivalist dragging TOM ARNOLD through the coastal mountains of Oregon. Through steep terrain, river crossings and oceanside cliffs ARNOLD discovers that the world of extreme survivalism is no walk in the park. Besides his notoriety as the ex-husband of ROSEANNE BARR, ARNOLD has established himself as an actor, producer and writer as well as being the affable host of several television shows and the recipient of both a Peabody and Golden Globe Award.

So far this season, we’ve seen GRYLLS explore the Northeast Appalachian mountains with ZAC EFRON, Scotland’s Isle of Skye with BEN STILLER and Yosemite National Park with CHANNING TATUM. It’s definitely a show for bros and none of it looks staged for the camera.

When we last sat down with GRYLLS, he was very clear in his theory on what it really takes to survive in the wild.



RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLES airs Monday nights on NBC.

Linda Grey Shines As ‘Dallas’ Returns To Complete Season Three

123Returning tonight to TNT, DALLAS is ready to complete the season it left hanging back in April. In the episode titled DENIAL, ANGER, ACCEPTANCE, fans will finally find out who set and who survived the big fire at Southfork and whether Pamela survived her suicide attempt. Needless to say, relationships among the Ewings are becoming pretty strained. Directed by STEVE ROBIN from a script by BRUCE RASMUSSEN, the DALLAS cast includes JESSE METCALF, JOSH HENDERSON, JULIE GONZALO, JORDANA BREWSTER, PATRICK DUFFY and LINDA GREY.

It should be noted that, in this reboot of the 1970’s original series, GREY absolutely kills in the role of the aggressive Sue Ellen Ewing. When we spoke with her a couple of years ago, she talked about her concerns regarding returning to the role and admitted she took a proactive role in making sure Sue Ellen got a chance to shine in this reboot.



Season Three of DALLAS returns tonight to TNT.

Being “Absurd But Relatable” Carries ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ To The Top Of The Chart

122Currently riding high at the top of the weekend box-office chart, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is yet another reboot of the perennially popular comic book characters that first appeared on the pop culture scene in 1984. Originally conceived by KEVIN EASTMAN and PETER LAIRD for Mirage Studios, the story centered on four teen anthropomorphic turtles (all named after Renaissance artists) trained in martial arts by their anthropomorphic rat sensei. Over the course of three decades, the franchise has gone on to conquer the worlds of comics, film, television animation and video games.

The latest film incarnation is simply titled TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, is directed by South African JONATHAN LIEBSMAN and stars MEGAN FOX, WILL ARNETT and JOHNNY KNOXVILLE as well as ALAN RITCHSON, NOEL FISHER, PETE PLOSZEK and JEREMY HOWARD as the titular super heroes.

With theatrical attendance going strong, it appears the TMNT haven’t lost any of their appeal and, at a recent press conference to promote the movie, director LIEBSMAN offered up his theory on their popularity (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)

For Sean Astin Every Episode Of ‘The Strain’ Is A Surprise

ray_donovan_ver3Airing tonight on FX, episode six of the delightfully creepy series THE STRAIN is titled OCCULTATION and sees Eph arrested by the FBI after warning Kelly to take Zack and get out of the city before the plague spreads any further. Based on the novels by GUILLERMO DEL TORO and CHUCK HOGAN, produced by CARLTON CUSE and directed by PETER WELLER, the show stars COREY STOLL, DAVID BRADLEY, MIA MAESTRO, SEAN ASTIN and KEVIN DURAND.

Now, one doesn’t expect a lot of job security for actors in a series about a zombie apocalypse so when we recently sat down with star SEAN ASTIN, we asked how his character fares over the course of the action. And, while he couldn’t offer up any ‘spoilers’, he did indicate that he’s taking it one episode at a time.

THE STRAIN airs tonight on FX.
