Back in May, after we learned that ABC renewed Agent Carter for a second season, we learned that the show will be moving to Los Angeles … so that Peggy Carter can fight crime in Hollywoodland. Today we get our first look at the promo poster that will be released for Agent Carter season 2 at San Diego Comic-Con this coming weekend. As you can see below, the illustrated poster takes full advantage of celebrating Peggy‘s move to Tinsel Town and teases, I think, what is sure to become a really fun new season of episodes. The illustrated SDCC promo poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 has also been released, you can see that poster as well after the cut. More »
This is going to be incredible.
As I sit her at my computer, listening to Jay Z and pondering the meaning of life, love, and all those drinks I had last night, one profound truth has occurred to me: Life was better with Empire. There’s been a sort of lull over the past few months and I realize now that it’s partly due to a severe lack of Empire, and I’m holding on to any news about Season Two and its impending arrival. If you don’t mind a little casting SPOILER, click inside for more!

This is why we can't have nice things
In spite of the very good news we heard earlier today that Back to The Future will NEVER get a remake for as long as Robert Zemeckis lives, we learn right now that Fox is planning a television series remake of the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction. Yes, in a long line of bad remake ideas, comes another bad remake idea. You may recall that we learned last month that Lifetime is planning a TV remake of Fame (1980) … and now this. Sigh. Read on for all the known gory details. More »

A world of YES!
In the past few years leading up to the past few months, we have heard about musical adaptations of movies like The Craft, Clueless, almost every Baz Luhrmann movie and Cruel Intentions to name but a few.

“These are all brand new stories."
Earlier this month, we got to see fun photos from the set of The X-Files, which is currently filming new episodes set to air on Fox early next year. Today we get to see X-Files stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. The X-Files has long been a staple of EW magazine coverage and I just know the publication has been chomping at the bit to devote more coverage to the show. The fact that they put The X-Files in their cover just weeks after the series went back into production shows just how excited they are that the show is back … and really, aren’t we all just as excited? Click below to see this week’s X-Files cover of EW magazine and preview the cover story feature that is published within. More »
"The season is being described as Daredevil Vs. The Punisher!"
Earlier this month, we learned that actor Jon Bernthal has been cast as The Punisher / Frank Castle in the forthcoming second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It is commonly known that both Daredevil and The Punisher are both heroes that fight the forces of evil in NYC (tho, in very different ways). But, that’s not to suggest that the two heroes are necessarily friends. Today we hear that The Punisher will be featured heavily in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil but NOT as a villain per se … which means that the TV show story will very likely follow the adversarial story between these two that has been told and retold in the Marvel comic books. The season is being described as “Daredevil vs. The Punisher“, which has a really nice ring to me. More »
