Billboard Advertisements for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
FOX has cancelled ALCATRAZ and THE FINDER!
Both shows had shown a lot of promise, but a severe drop in viewership. Is being cited as the main reason, the shows were not renewed.
NETFLIX has come to the rescue of TERRA NOVA, the recently canceled FOX show. About a family who finds themselves back in prehistoric times, after the are selected to take part in an experiment that was created with the sole purpose of saving the human race.
Officials have stated that the company is in early negotiations to produce new episodes of the Sci-Fi series. More information should come trickling in, within the next few days.
The Producers of House, M.D. just released a statement and have confirmed that the 8th season, which the show is currently on. Will be its last.
Here is the release:
After much deliberation, the producers of House M.D. have decided that this season of the show, the 8th, should be the last. By April this year they will have completed 177 episodes, which is about 175 more than anyone expected back in 2004.
The decision to end the show now, or ever, is a painful one, as it risks putting asunder hundreds of close friendships that have developed over the last eight years - but also because the show itself has been a source of great pride to everyone involved.
Since it began, House has aspired to offer a coherent and satisfying world in which everlasting human questions of ethics and emotion, logic and truth, could be examined, played out, and occasionally answered. This sounds like fancy talk, but it really isn’t. House has, in its time, intrigued audiences around the world in vast numbers, and has shown that there is a strong appetite for television drama that relies on more than prettiness or gun play.
But now that time is drawing to a close. The producers have always imagined House as an enigmatic creature; he should never be the last one to leave the party. How much better to disappear before the music stops, while there is still some promise and mystique in the air.
The producers can never sufficiently express their gratitude to the hundreds of dedicated artists and technicians who have given so generously of their energy and talent to make House the show it has been - and perhaps will continue to be for some time, on one cable network or another.
The makers of House would also like to thank Fox Broadcasting and Universal Television for supporting the show with patience, imagination and large quantities of good taste. The Studio-As-Evil-Adversary is one of the many clichés that House has managed to avoid, and for that the cast and crew are deeply grateful.
Lastly, the audience: some have come and some have gone, obviously. This is to be expected in the life of any show. But over the course of the last eight years, the producers of House have felt immensely honored to be the subject of such close attention by an intelligent, discriminating, humane and thoughtful - not to mention numerous - audience. Even the show’s detractors have been flattering in their way. Making the show has felt like a lively and passionate discussion about as many different subjects as could possibly be raised in 177 hours. The devotion and generosity of our viewers has been marvelous to behold.
So, finally, everyone at House will bid farewell to the audience and to each other with more than a few tears, but also with a deep feeling of gratitude for the grand adventure they have been privileged to enjoy for the last eight years. If the show lives on somewhere, with somebody, as a fond memory, then that is a precious feat, of which we will always be proud.
STATEMENT FROM KEVIN REILLY, PRESIDENT, ENTERTAINMENT, FOX BROADCASTING COMPANY:
While it’s with much regret, and a lump in our throats, we respect the decision Hugh, David and Katie have made. A true original, on the page and amazingly brought to life by Hugh Laurie, there is only one Dr. House. For eight seasons, the entire HOUSE team has given us – and fans around the world – some of the most compelling characters and affecting stories ever seen on television. They have been creatively tenacious and collaborative throughout this incredible run, and they are amongst the most superior talents in the business. For all the above, we wholeheartedly thank them, and the fans who have supported the show.
The Halloween Movie Watch List - #5 - THE FRIGHTENERS
Originally supposed to be a segment on HBO’s Tales from the Crypt. Robert Zemeckis liked the script so much that he pushed studios to make it into a feature film, and so Peter Jackson (whom had wowed audiences with Heavenly Creatures the year before) took to the Director’s chair and created one seriously awesome film. That is seemingly tailor-made, for the Halloween season.
With memorable performances from Michael J. Fox, Jake Busey, and Dee Wallace. It is a legendary character actor named Jeffrey Combs, that steals the movie. Combs delved deep into the psyche of his character, Milton Dammers and suggested among other things. That Dammers have a Hitler-like hair style and even designed the two main chest tattoos that are revealed late in the movie.
This was also a shining moment for Jackson’s Weta Digital Ltd. Which designed and created cutting-edge and revolutionary techniques for the CGI used in the movie.
When you look at Jackson’s filmography, The Frighteners is a major turning point in his career. Early in his history of course he made films like Bad Taste (which is #15 on this list) and Dead Alive. The Frighteners cemented Jackson as a mainstay in Hollywood and proved that a CGI-heavy movie can tell a damn good story and thoroughly entertain.
First on-set photo from THIS IS FORTY which is Judd Apatow’s sequel to Knocked Up and will focus on the characters played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann. Also it seems that a lot of the original cast are coming back including Jason Segel.
Also you may have noticed that Megan Fox is also in the film.
