Ever since online-streaming-service-turned-original-content-provider Netflix unleashed Daredevil to the masses and showed the world that Marvel Comics properties can do more than dazzle on the big screen, us fan-types have been asking what’s next? and can it measure up? We don’t have much longer to wait: premiering next month is the next offering between the two entertainment powerhouses, Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Now, we get to kick off October in the right way, with a brand new teaser!
The American military drama Last Resort isn’t alone in it’s cancellation this past weekend. ABC also announced the cancelation of David Wilcox‘s creation, 666 Park Avenue. Recent events with hurricane Sandy helped deal the fatal blow to the sets of 666 Park Avenue, including damaging Manhattan’s The Ansonia. The cancelation news was just the last shovel full of bad news piled on top of an already steaming pile of problems for the series.
Loosely based on the novel of the same name by Gabriella Pierce and starring Terry O’Quinn, Rachael Taylor, Dave Annable, Robert Buckley, Mercedes Masohn, Erik Palladino, Helena Mattsson, Samantha Logan and Vanessa Williams the hourly drama was already in a tough spot. Ratings for the drama slipped to three million viewers less than when the show debuted back in September. Sadly, it means it was only a matter of time before ABC put the axe down, but you’d think they would have cancelled that God awful show The Neighbours before they went after something with such promise.
666 Park Avenue had both a strong direction and cast backing it up, guess they doesn’t count for crap in network television these days.
ABC will however allow both Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue to finish out their 13-episode seasons. After the shows wrap up with their final episodes you’ll have to wait till their DVDs eventually come out to force some kind of Family Guy style revival.

Don’t you just hate it when you’re partying in Russia only to have aliens crash land and start taking over the planet? Fucking aliens.
That’s the premise of the run, hide and learn to fight alien flick from director Chris Gorak. The Darkest Hour stars Emile Hirsch and has him facing a pack of invisible electricity-hungry aliens looking to destroy the planet. In Russia aliens probe you.
The trailer makes the film look like a pretty inventive piece for a formula that’s been well over used. Showing off the aliens lethal wave-energy attack, where the humans (or innocent pup) are cauterized into ash kinda spoils it a bit, but none the less looks very cool. When’s the last time you saw a light bulb used as an early warning device before invisible aliens try to kick your ass?
Looks like a real family film.
The Darkest Hour, starring Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella and Rachael Taylor hits theaters December 23rd, 2011.
