James Franco defies the odds in Hulu’s compelling ‘11.22.63’

“You’re not supposed to be here.”

Jake Epping hears these words over and over again throughout the nearly 90-minute premiere episode of the new time-travel thriller 11.22.63 — and after a while, it starts to feel like the statement is meant for more than just the hero at the heart of the show.

On several levels, 11.22.63 feels like an unlikely beast. It’s based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, adapted by J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot production company, starring the debatably too-prolific James Franco, and released on … Hulu? It’s an A-list roster of talent and an intriguing choice of venue, but not exactly a selection of ingredients one would expect to see in the same cauldron. Read more…

Dead Game of Thrones characters from the past are honored in a new promo for the upcoming Season 6 — but that’s not the most haunting part. The most chilling part is who else is in the promo.

In the teaser, released on Sunday, Tyrion, Sansa, Daenerys and more also appear in the Hall of Faces. (!!!)

“The long night is coming,” Jon Snow can be heard saying, “and the dead come with it.”

What does it all mean? Definitive answers await us when Game of Thrones returns April 24.

Well, that was horrific

Let’s not beat around the walker gut-splattered bush here: After assuming Carl’s eyeball had survived a climactic midseason finale showdown with Jessie’s greasy-haired teen spawn, it turns out the writers didn’t abandon the Carl loses an eye plot — they were just saving it for Sunday night

Assuming he was safe, of course, was a foolish move. Because this show is cruel and feeds off our trauma and pain. God bless it Read more…

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead unless you’ve watched this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.

Our Walking Dead family is finally back together … but for how long?

After a long stretch of episodes where our regulars were separated and off fighting different fights, seeing everyone working together in last night’s midseason premiere was a glorious sight.

But, as regular viewers of AMC’s hit thriller know, it’s never long from the time one battle ends and another materializes and that’s what season 6B is all about.

As Melissa McBride, who brings a fierce heart to the show as Carol, told us in a preview for the return episode, there are many threats coming their way besides the imminent appearance of Jeffrey Dead Morgan as villainous Negan Read more…

With the end nigh, The Good Wife returns to where it all began: the 27th floor of Lockhart & Gardner

Yes, as the last episode hinted, Alicia returns to Lockhart Agos & Lee as a junior partner and brings Lucca along with her. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough room on the 28th floor for Alicia, so she is back on the 27th, where she began the series

“27th floor again? Everything comes full circle doesn’t it?” Eli notes when Alicia finds him laying on her couch. You know, how he used to do when they first met

As we’ve seen throughout this season, the show has been repeating itself, alluding to and echoing past events. Now that we know the show is ending, all of that has started to make sense. With everything Alicia has learned over these past seven season, it’s time to take her back where she started and see how she will apply that all Read more…

Tropfest

A stop-motion animation by two Americans has won the world’s largest short film festival, Tropfest, in Australia.

The film called Shiny, by Los Angeles filmmakers Spencer Susser and Daniel Campos, uses the clothing of people to tell the story of a battle for a diamond

“A damsel in distress gets undressed when a man from the midwest puts to rest a world that’s obsessed with the priceless, also know as ‘the shiny,'” the video description reads. Translation: Love is more important than material possessions

Susser and Campos beat out 16 finalists in the competition, which pulled an audience of close to 100,000 people to Centennial Park in Sydney. The short films must all be under seven minutes long, be made specifically for Tropfest and include the Tropfest signature item, which this year is “card.” Read more…

LONDON — Bafta host Stephen Fry provoked outrage during the ceremony Sunday night after he described the winner of the Best Costume Design award, Jenny Beavan, as a “bag lady.”

Beavan was barely off the stage having accepted the accolade — dressed in jeans, a grey scarf and a leather jacket — when he made the quip.

It was her work on Mad Max: Fury Road that earned her a place among the winners of the night.

LONDON — The 69th BAFTAs took place at London’s Covent Garden Sunday, and there was a new addition this year: an unexpected “kiss cam” that singled out pairs of people in the audience for impromptu snogs.

The Valentine’s feature saw a number of celebs get affectionate after the camera zoomed in on them: Bryan Cranston kissed Julianne Moore, while Rebel Wilson got stuck in with comedian Eddie Izzard.

The best pairing by far, though, was Leonardo DiCaprio and Maggie Smith, whose moment took everyone by surprise.

Nice one, BAFTA; we’ll have this feature back again next year, please. Read more…

The trailer is set to be released March 3.
