The paradigm shift of content at San Diego Comic Con continues in full force this year, as more and more non-comic-related products and presentations are made. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it provides more fans and creators the opportunity to reach wider audiences than ever before. Fox is jumping head-on into the fray, bringing a slew of TV shows and panels to the SDCC masses. (more…)
In every actor’s life, there is a moment when they are called to the stage, a venue where, many think, the true quality of acting is found and delivered. Of course, no one would ever conflate Bruce Willis with the upper-seats of acting royalty like, say, Sir Laurence Olivier, but it seems that even John McClane can’t escape the siren song of the Great White Way, and he will soon be taking to the Broadway stage hismelf. But role could possibly speak to Willis loud enough to make him go out on the proverbial ledge like this: Hamlet? Willy Loman (Death of a Salesman)? Stanley Kowalski (A Streetcar Named Desire)? How about Paul Sheldon. You now, the victimized author under the mercy of a crazed fan in Stephen King‘s Misery. (more…)

The latest chapter in FX‘s horror series American Horror Story, American Horror Story: Coven is coming to television this October. It all about the secret history of witchcraft in America. The production has an incredible ensemble cast including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, and Frances Conroy. The show’s main title sequence has hit the Internet and it’s got all the creepy, “there’s someone behind you,” feeling that any horror fan could hope for.
The series promises to disturb your sleep and often delivers just that with visions that won’t help you get a good nights sleep. The show debuts on October 9th, just in time to get you in the mood for Halloween.
Take a look at the opening below and let us know what you think in the comments section. FX Networks website describes the series:
As many of you know, NBC took a dump on David E. Kelly’s Wonder Woman television pilot by canceling before it even aired. Regardless of the dis by NBC, the Ally Mcbeal creator still has a giant nerd-on for Amazonian princess. He’s determined to see his vision make it on TV.Surprisingly his dreams are coming true. He’s getting Smallville‘s Erica Durance to lace up and wear the golden bracelets…kinda.
Erica, who played Lois Lane on Smallville, has already been the closest to an actual sexy Wonder Woman by having Lois dress as an “Amazon Princess” in a convention episode. Ms. Durance has been chosen to play “a psychologically infirm woman who retreats into the persona of the DC Comics heroine to help wreak revenge on perpetrators of domestic abuse,” on his dramedy Harry’s Law.
David, we all want to see DC’s greatest female hero on TV , but you had your shot, just let it go. It’s a nice effort, but taking a character meant for female empowerment and turning her into a case of mental instability is not cool man.
