Anna Paquin Could Cameo In 'The Gifted'


Anna Paquin

Married to Stephen Moyer since 2010, following their work together on long-running supernatural series 'True Blood' (based on the 'Southern Vampire Mysteries' book series by Charlaine Harris), Anna Paquin has seemingly gone from strength to strength in the entertainment business. When she starred as Rogue in 'X-Men' movie 'Days of Future Past' however, fans were a little annoyed to see how minor her role really was.

Now, she could be bringing her version of Rogue back to viewers, but on the small screen as part of new FOX series 'The Gifted', set within the 'X-Men' universe. Moyer - who heads up the new series as a parent trying to protect his mutant children from the government - may have let the cat out of the bag a little early.

True Blood Recap: Bon Temps Residents Finally Get Closure - Through Murder


Anna Paquin Rutina Wesley Stephen Moyer Alexander Skarsgard

Another episode of True Blood, another ten or so shockers – as the show circles the drain, the writers are throwing shocker after shocker at us. So who killed whom in this episode? Read on to find out (or get majorly spoiled, if that's your thing.)

Alexander Skarsgard
Eric is back to his creepy old self. Oh joy.

Well, first of all, let’s talk about Eric for a moment, because who doesn’t love a bit of Eric? He and Pam finally arrived at Sarah Newman’s house after she had been seeing visions of Jason Stackhouse as the Grim Reaper (yes, this plot requires some major dedication). But instead of killing Sarah, a sick, sick Eric fed from her instead, curing his Hep V almost instantly. Yay Eric… maybe. He’s still a Level 100 creep, tbh.

First Official Trailer For 'X Men: Days Of Future Past' Hints At Herculean Heroism In What Could Be The Next Great Comic Book Movie [Trailer]


Patrick Stewart Hugh Jackman Ian McKellen James McAvoy Michael Fassbender Ellen Page Jennifer Lawrence Anna Paquin Halle Berry Nicholas Hoult

X-Men: Days of Future Past won't be out until May next year, but after you see the first trailer for it you'll wish that you could jump forward and dive right into it now. In it, we get our first real glimpse at our mutant heroes and villains, from past and future, who must bend the space time continuum to make the future a better day for mutants throughout the Marvel Universe.

James McAvoyPatrick Stewart
The past (McAvoy) and present (Stewart) Xaviers meet face to face in the trailer

Based on the much lauded and incredibly popular (if you happen to be into comic books at least) 'Days of Future Past' storyline from the Uncanny X-Men, the move will unite the characters from the first X-Men movies with those from 2011's X-Men: First Class, with the present day X-Men having to go back in time to prevent the ongoing war against mutants, who are being hunted down by the robotic Sentinels. Are you still with us? Good, because it gets even more complicated.

Vampire Series 'True Blood' Comes To An End In 2014


Anna Paquin Stephen Moyer

HBO have announced that the seventh series of True Blood will be its last as the show will come to an end. 

The announcement came on Tuesday (3rd September 2013) as HBO president of programming, Michael Lombardo, according to the BBC stated "together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show". He added "True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO".

The Vampire series was originally based on a set of novels called The Southern Vampire Diaries by author Charlaine Harris that features elements of vampires and werewolves as well as many other supernatural aspects that are set in a fictional town in Louisiana.

HBO Will Finally Stake True Blood In 2014


Anna Paquin Joe Manganiello Ryan Kwanten Alexander Skarsgard Stephen Moyer

True Blood will finish in 2014. The show has just finished its sixth season and there will be one more before the HBO series will come to a final halt. The announcement was made on Tuesday (3rd September) by HBO's President of Programming Michael Lombardo. He said "Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show."

The show follows the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse, a waitress from Bon Temps, Louisiana who is pitted against - in romance and otherwise - vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, fairies and an assortment of other supernatural creatures. True Blood has catapulted a number of actors into the limelight and has even forged a marriage during its five year run. Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who play Sookie and her main love interest Bill, met on the show and married in 2010. Other stars of the show include Alexander Skarsgard, Rutina Wesley, Ryan Kwanten, Nelson Ellis and Joe Manganiello.

True Blood season 6, episode 6 entitled 'Dead Meat' aired last night (Sunday 4th August). There was more trouble for the imprisoned vampires and, as usual, Sookie was being hankered after by a handsome and intense vampire. Here's a quick recap:

True Blood Season 6, Episode 4 Recap: Ben's Secret Is Revealed


Anna Paquin Stephen Moyer

After a shaky start to the season, True Blood is back on track as one of HBO's top rated drama series as it continues to deliver the good each Sunday night. Last night's (July 7) episode was no break from the norm either as episode four of season six was a roller-coaster ride that rarely slowed down, as secrets were revealed, vampires were born and parties were held. Of course this is True Blood, so you know what a 'party' entails.

Stephen Moyer Anna Paquin Alexander Skarsgard
Stephen Moyer (L) Anna Paquin (M) and Alexander Skarsgard (R) attend the premiere of the new season

This week's episode was all about Ben, or should we say Warlow! That's right because Sookie managed put the pieces together having found a healed Jason and uncovered Ben's dark, fairy secret. This explains Jason's mysterious recovery under Ben's care and the almost instant connection between Sookie and Ben when he arrived in Bon Temps, he is her ancient aggressor after all; he's half vampire and half fairy and he could be one very dangerous character. All that was left for Sookie to do was to lure him into bed (never a difficult thing for Sookie to do) and trap him between her legs and, more importantly, her fairy ball. Lets hope this isn't the end of Ben though, he's been the best part of the season so far.

True Blood Season 6 Premieres, But There Were Clearly Better Options On The Night


Anna Paquin Stephen Moyer

HBO's popular vampire series True Blood came back for its sixth season this weekend, and whilst the ever-faithful fandom were around to check out the first airing of the season there was a noticeable chunk of the viewership missing from the opening night. The episode clocked in with 4.5 million viewers when it aired on Sunday (June 16) at 9pm, over half a million fewer than the number who tuned in for the start of season 5.

The 4.5 million total was down 15% from last year’s 5.2 million and was down 11% from the number that season 5's finale managed to draw in. A drop it may be, but in the grand scheme of things that number isn't as bad as it seems as even the ever-popular Game of Thrones only managed to draw in 4.37 million when season three first went to air earlier this year. That number rose to 5.39 million viewers when the season came to an end last week, and if season six proves to be as successful as the previous five have then there shouldn't be too much to worry about for HBO.

There's even more reason for True Blood's shaky start too and thats thanks to NBC and their coverage of the NBA Finals, which as you can imagine took in the bulk of the audience numbers for the night. Next week also spells the return of the Jeff Daniels-starring The Newsroom, which will air at 10pm after True Blood and could provide week two with a much improved view rating.

HBO's True Blood Is Back This Summer With A Darker, More Intense Vibe


Anna Paquin Stephen Moyer

Just when you thought it was going to be a bleak, TV-less summer, HBO’s True Blood steps in to save the day. The show will be back with a bloody vengeance (best pun we could come up with, sorry) on June 16 and the cast are excited about what’s to come.

"There's a real energy and excitement, and I think that came this year from the top down," said Joe Manganiello, who stars as werewolf Alcide, for CNN. "The show got really big in its scope during seasons three, four and five, and it became more about the world and these creatures with so many plot lines. In season six, there's a concerted effort to make this show return to what made it great in season one and two. It was about these people who lived in a town. It was about the town versus the rest of the world. I think (the show) really returns to that at the end of this season. The way that it's pulled is really smart, and I think it's going to be really fun for the audience."

So, ok maybe you got none of that because, like so many others, you stopped paying attention to what seemed like the thousands of characters and convoluted plots that took over. When really, what we all wanted to see, what we flocked to see in seasons one and two, were just some good ol’ fashioned creepy vampires, perhaps an easy to digest racism metaphor or two. And hey, it looks like the show’s producers have realised that as well and are now bringing it back to basics.

Margaret Review


Excellent
Shot in 2005, Lonergan's film spent six years in legal and editorial limbo. It may be overlong, but it's a powerfully involving exploration of guilt and self-discovery. It's also packed with astonishingly complex characters and situations.

Lisa (Paquin) is a Manhattan teen living with her single mother Joan (Smith-Cameron), an actress starring in her breakout stage role while seeing a new man (Reno). One day Lisa distracts a bus driver (Ruffalo), who hits a woman (Janney) in the street, an accident that sends Lisa into a spiral of sublimated guilt, as she lashes out in different ways at a nice classmate (Gallagher), her teachers (Damon and Broderick) and mostly her mother. And she doesn't stop there, meddling in people's lives in her effort to achieve a sense of justice.

The Romantics Trailer


Lila and Laura were best friends through college, they were always close and their extended set of friends were almost as close as they were. Named 'The Romantics' by other college mates for their almost incestuous dating history the group of seven reunite for the marriage of Lila and Tom. Lila and Laura have both got their history with the groomsman and seeing Laura again appears to have flustered the groom and begins to question his feelings for both women.

True Blood: Season One Review


Excellent
Richly populated with a wide variety of unique characters, not to mention a serial killer and lots of sexy vampires, Bon Temps, Louisiana is a decidedly interesting place in which to spend some time. Alan Ball's True Blood may not quite measure up to the triumph of his Six Feet Under, but it's as good a series as any HBO has put on the air since The Sopranos ended, and it's well worth a renewal or two.

Based on a series of novels by Charlaine Harris, True Blood drops us into the weird world of Sookie Stackhouse (the energetic Anna Paquin), a young waitress who has ability to hear people's thoughts, a talent that annoys the hell out of her. In this slightly alternate reality, vampires live among humans, albeit in a fairly segregated fashion. The invention of synthetic blood, the so-called True Blood of the title, means that vampires need not kill humans to feed, so they have been granted civil rights. The problem, though, is that they still prefer the real thing.

Blue State Review


OK
I would imagine that even deep in the heart of Texas, everyone knows somebody like John (Breckin Meyer), the character at the center of Blue State. You remember this guy: He swore in 2004 that if Bush was re-elected to the Presidency he would -- wait for it -- move to Canada, I swear. I worked right next to that guy for a full year, and guess where he moved? Nowhere.

After John Kerry falls to defeat at the hands of Dubya, John finds his campaign promise, aired on television, being taken seriously. He's also lost his job and his girlfriend, so there's really nothing keeping him in California. So, why not? Move to Canada. OK.

X-Men Review


Good
Well, comic book freaks can take a breather, as another sci-fi fantasy hits the big screen, this time in the long-awaited, highly-anticipated, it-better-be-good X-Men.

Without too much regret, I can say that X-Men will be palatable to fans and newbies alike. It's not a great film, but it will probably follow the arc of the Superman and Batman movies -- tons of sequels of variable quality until an abrupt and dismal end a decade later.

Fly Away Home Review


OK
Anna Paquin's first starring role after stealing an Oscar for The Piano is the harmless family movie Fly Away Home. Following in the footsteps of countless family movies before it, Fly Away Home tries too hard to appeal to both children and their parents and ultimately loses much of its appeal to everybody.

In case you missed the movie's trailer, which provides a nice plot synopsis, Fly Away Home is about a teenage girl (Paquin) from New Zealand who moves in with her Canadian father (Jeff Daniels) after her mother dies. The young girl is utterly bored and lonely until she finds a family of young goose eggs (eventually geese) to take care of. After she becomes the geese's mother, she finds happiness, and the whole family bands together to figure out how to take care of the geese. This ultimately leads to the decision to have young Anna fly the geese down south for the winter.

It's The Rage Review


Bad
Quite a cast has been assembled for this Altman-esque tale of interlocked lives, all clamoring around the "serious social problem" of gun control. While there's no denying that the USA has over fifty million gun owners and it's a subject worthy of address and debate, this movie thuddingly hits the same numb point over and over again: guns are bad, guns can kill. That's about as resonant as It's the Rage will get.

Jeff Daniels and Joan Allen play a miserable suburban couple whose marriage is disrupted by an accidental shooting in their living room at midnight. As it turns out, the guy was Daniels' business partner. Allen moves out in disgust and, through a process of self-discovery, figures out that her happy little life was nothing more than a middle class prison. She hides away at her new workplace, in the employ of eccentric millionaire and computer guru Gary Sinise. Daniels sits at home fuming, renting pornography and playing with his gun.

Continue reading: It's The Rage Review

Finding Forrester Review


Good
They're already calling it "Good Will Hunting in the hood," and it's for good reason. Gus Van Sant's latest takes us back to the inner city (or The Bronx, at least) for a second verse of that feel-good feeling, with none other than Sean Connery as a crotchety old shut-in who teaches (and learns from, natch) a local teen (Rob Brown) who sneaks into his apartment.

If you've seen the trailer, you know the story. The local Bronx kids live in fear of "the window," a ghostlike man who stares down at them creepily while they shoot hoops. On a dare, young Jamal (Brown) sneaks into the place, finding it cluttered with books. He's given a scare and Jamal runs off, leaving his backpack behind.

Buffalo Soldiers Review


Essential
Delayed from release for two years due to the world political climate, Buffalo Soldiers is a movie that is categorically worth the wait.

A dark comedy on par with Pulp Fiction, Aussie director Gregor Jordan (in his second film) transports us to Germany in 1989, on an American Army base during the waning days of the Cold War. These enlisted troops aren't your Officer and a Gentleman go-getters. They're criminals, offered the option to serve their country in lieu of staying in jail. But since there's no war on, getting in to trouble is the only thing to do. As our protagonist says, "There was nothing to kill but time."

The Squid And The Whale Review


Excellent
One feels pretty easy predicting at the start of Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale - after a scene in which a family of four plays tennis and the father keeps hitting the ball so hard that the mother finally gives up in disgust - that divorce is not far away. Note to husbands: Do not try to hit spouse with tennis ball. Be especially wary of said aggressive behavior if that spouse is Laura Linney.

It's Park Slope, Brooklyn, circa 1986, and the Berkman family is splitting up at the mid-swing of the pendulum of the adults' professional lives. On the downswing is the father, Bernard (Jeff Daniels), a professor and once-celebrated writer. Linney plays the mother, Joan, a blossoming writer coming out from under Bernard's shadow. He's been distant and awful, she's had affairs and been generally resentful, so now Bernard is moving to a falling-down house on the far side of Prospect Park while she gets to keep the gorgeous brownstone. The kids, of course, get screwed, with split custody keeping them in one house for half the week and the other house for the rest. Ensuring that things will stay nice and dysfunctional, the kids choose sides, with teenaged Walt (Jesse Eisenberg) sticking with Bernard and even picking up his mannerisms, while younger Frank (Owen Kline) throws in with Joan.

She's All That Review

Well, as it turns out, she's not all that. She's like half that. Maybe less. I'd say 30 percent that.

70 percent crap.

Darkness Review


Bad
I love road trips. Not because I'm especially fond of sitting in my car for days at a time, but because with each passing mile a promise is fulfilled. Every hour behind the wheel draws you nearer to your destination, and along the way you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. But, though paperback self-help writers may tell you otherwise, the journey itself is not enough. You have to actually get somewhere to make the whole trip worthwhile. And if, at the end of a day's travel, you haven't gone anywhere at all, you've wasted all your time and a whole lot of gas.

Like a long road trip to nowhere, Spanish director Jaume Balagueró's Darkness is miserable, frustrating, and hard on the buttocks. Though the film's run time is a mere 102 minutes, the psychological impact of wasting precious money and energy staring at the screen and waiting for something -- anything -- to happen could take years off your life.

X2: X-Men United Review


Very Good
The mutants are back in town in the first big sequel of 2003 -- a year that promises at least a half-dozen Brand Name Sequels (nearly all of which, surprisingly, I'm anxious to see). X2 probably won't be the best of the bunch, but it certainly isn't the worst. Like the original X-Men, the sequel is a lot of good, clean fun, full of vibrancy and memorable comic book antics, but ultimately it's a bit of a letdown due to too many squandered opportunities and an exhausting running time.

X2 picks up an indeterminate amount of time after the original ended. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman, looking strangely clean cut) is still trying to figure out his past. Magneto (Ian McKellan) is trapped in his plastic prison. And Jean Gray (Famke Janssen) is having bad dreams about something wicked coming on the horizon.

Continue reading: X2: X-Men United Review

Castle In The Sky Review


Extraordinary
Probably my favorite Miyazaki film, Castle in the Sky is full of adventure, mystery, and good, clean fun.

Based on Gulliver's Travels' stories of the flying city of Laputa, the film follows the mysterious Sheeta (Anna Paquin) as she gently floats down from the sky and lands in the care of Pazu (James Van Der Beek). What follows involves a massive adventure that stretches to include sky pirates, a Nazi-like military group, Sheeta's secret identity, and a quest to discover the cloud-shrouded city of Laputa, floating somewhere up there.

Almost Famous Review


Excellent
When you enter into the world of entertainment journalism, you think it's the coolest thing in the world. Suddenly, doors are opened for you. You can get into movies free, or get books free, or get music free. You can meet directors or movie stars, see rock gods face to face, and get to ask Kurt Vonnegut that question that has burned in your gut for years. For some odd reason, people call you names. They call you evil and the enemy, but you really don't care. You just are thrilled to be there, be part of this intangible "it" known as celebrity.

And then it happens.

25th Hour Review


Extraordinary
If you were to write a screenplay about a drug dealer who has just 24 hours of freedom left before he begins a seven-year prison sentence, what would you have him do? Repent? Fashion an elaborate escape? Have plenty of sex? That's probably why you haven't authored any Oscar-quality screenplays lately. Writer David Benioff, on the other hand, is likely to see a little golden statuette up close next year for his work on 25th Hour, a remarkable new film based on his novel of the same name.

Neither tearjerker nor suspenseful crime drama, 25th Hour is extraordinary in that it avoids all the clichés that such a premise so often invites. It is instead a carefully focused character study about a charismatic but condemned man who must come to grips with his sentence before morning. Edward Norton plays Montgomery Brogan, the felon in question. He spends his last free hours visiting his father (Brian Cox) and attending a going away party in his honor at a New York nightclub. In tow are his girlfriend (Rosario Dawson) and his two childhood pals, Frank (Barry Pepper) and Jakob (Philip Seymour Hoffman) -- the latter of which is so perfectly cast that you can't help but chuckle the first time you see Hoffman give his usual dyspeptic sneer, signaling that he is disgusted not only with his high school English students but essentially the entire outcome of his life.

A Walk On The Moon Review


Good

Somehow "A Walk On the Moon," which takes place at a working-classJewish resort in upstate New York during the summer of 1969, manages tovisit every iconic event of that characteristic season which defined ageneration without ever feeling like a parade of trite and recycled bohemiancliches.

I'm not entirely sure how this miracle was performed, butformer supporting actor turned director TonyGoldwyn (the bad yuppie in "Ghost"),manages to embrace the rampant and inevitable Moon walk watching, Vietnamtalking and Woodstock going, yet refuses to let them weigh down his picture,narrowing his focus instead on Pearl Kartrowitz (Diane Lane), a discontentedBrooklyn housewife who succumbs to the spirit of that summer while on vacationin the Catskills and has an affair with a enigmatic free spirit (ViggoMortensen).
