Not a ratings killer, but a critical success nonetheless. This is a good move from AMC.
Halt and Catch Fire - which follows the rise of the PC in the early 1980s and averaged 1.3 million weekly viewers – has been renewed for a second season by AMC. The show didn’t come out strong, like a Game of Thrones of Boardwalk Empire, but has cultivated what AMC have called a ‘core following’, hence the renewal. If only Fox had recognised that kind of audience with Firefly, hey?
Halt and Care Fire: AMC
AMC president, Charlie Collier, said in a statement :“This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground – themes that really resonate with us as a network and attracted a passionate audience. We have a history of demonstrating patience through the early seasons of new shows, betting on talent and building audience over time. We see that opportunity here and look forward to a second season of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ from creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers, and showrunner Jonathan Lisco.”

Scoot Mcnairy stars in AMC's new period drama
The AMC execs knew they were piling the pressure on themselves with a new drama set in the 80s, considering the success of a certain period drama currently taking a break after a mid-season finale. But regardless of the Mad Men comparisons, Halt and Catch Fire’s first episode is a promising start.
“First of all, there's sex,” writes Newsday’s Verne Gay, “even before the opening credits. Pace's MacMillan is a late-model Don Draper with fast lines, faster moves, and could sell water -- to use the old line -- to a drowning man.”

'Halt and Catch Fire' has gained strong reviews for its pilot - but can it maintain the momentum?
Halt and Catch Fire - AMC's new drama that airs on Sunday (June 1) - may be a tough sell to Breaking Bad, Walking Dead and Mad Men fans. It tells a fictionalized story of the early days of the personal computer boom, with former IBM employee Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace) turns up at Cardiff Electric in Texas. There, he enlists the help of sales executive Gordon (Scoot McNairy) to help him reverse engineer an IBM computer.

The new 'Guardians of the Galaxy' teaser gives a glimpse into the new action movie.
A 15 second teaser trailer has been released for Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel's upcoming action epic, as fans wait patiently for a full-length trailer. The new teaser may be finished in virtually the blink of an eye but we're given a glimpse of just enough of the film to get that little bit more excited. For a start, we see a pretty hench Chris Pratt as his character Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord, as well as some mind-boggling special effects and death-defying stunts.
The First Teaser Trailer Has Been Released For Upcoming Marvel Action Movie, 'Guardians Of The Galaxy.'
There has been a great deal of chatter on the internet regarding the potential success of Guardians of the Galaxy and whether it'll be Marvel's first flop movie. The concern partly stems from the notion that an entirely new host of characters are being introduced all at once without any precursors in other movies. Some say that GOTG will not do as well as Marvel's most successful film, The Avengers, because the characters have not had the individual movie back-stories like the Avengers did.
Nebula describes potential crossover as "cool."
The Guardians of the Galaxy movie isn't even ready for release yet and actress Karen Gillan is already looking at potential future spin-offs and crossovers that could be made. The former Doctor Who star has taken on the role as alien villainess Nebula in the upcoming 2014 action movie.
Karen Gillan Will Play The Evil Nebula In Guardians Of The Galaxy.
In an interview with Total Film, a tentative reporter asked Gillan at the press interview session for her latest movie Not Another Happy Ending about the possibilities of her being involved in Guardians/Avengers crossover. "There's been talk about the kind of Guardians versus Avengers kind of possibly in the future those two teams kind of meeting up," he asked, clearly star-struck, adding "is this something you'd be interested in?"
Bilbo Baggins has narrowly escaped several deadly confrontations with the likes of trolls, stone giants and countless orcs alongside his faithful wizard partner Gandalf and the hardy Dwarves of Erebor as they passed through the treacherous Misty Mountains. Their quest to retrieve the dwarves' vast pile of treasure and the land that they once called their home is at a peak as they reach the Lonely Mountain. Guarded by a colossal dragon named Smaug, the Lonely Mountain proves to be even more perilous than where they had just been and armed only with elven swords and Bilbo's Ring, they must make the ultimate defeat while fighting giant spiders and more goblins along the way. More threats face them in the form of untrustworthy elves with intelligence that far surpasses any of the travellers' put together, and their chances of survival are becoming very slim indeed.
'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' is the second instalment of 'The Hobbit' movie trilogy directed by Peter Jackson ('King Kong', 'The Lovely Bones', 'The Lord of the Rings') and based on the novel by JRR Tolkien. Screenwriters Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Guillermo del Toro make their return as do much of the previous cast alongside some new faces. It is due to be released in the UK on December 13th 2013.

Chris Pratt is bulking up for his role in the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Chris Pratt, the 34-year-old actor who has bagged himself some pretty tasty roles in recent years, is bulking up for his role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Pratt is the latest movie star to undergo a dramatic physical transformation and posted his progress in an Instragram photo this week.
It's not the first time the Parks and Recreation actor has changed weight for a movie role - he sported a hugely toned physique for his role as a member of Seal Team Six in Kathyn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' last year.

Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and their company thirteen dwarves have managed to leave the Misty Mountains almost unscathed after a series of death-defying encounters with trolls, stone giants, goblins and orcs. Armed with the One Ring and an array of elven forged swords, Bilbo must now set out to help retrieve the mountain of treasure that once belonged to the dwarves under the Lonely Mountain that was usurped by the dragon Smaug. Unfortunately, it proves less then straight-forward as more threats lie in their way from giant spiders and yet more goblins to unforgiving elves and waterfalls. However, as they approach the dragon, they begin to feel that all their other deadly ventures were just the tip of the iceberg.
'The Hobbit' returns with the second part of the movie trilogy 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' which sees the return of director Peter Jackson ('King Kong', 'The Lovely Bones', 'The Lord of the Rings') following part one, 'An Unexpected Journey'. Writers Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Guillermo del Toro are also back, along with last year's star cast and many new faces. Based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien, this new fantasy adventure film is set to hit cinemas this winter on December 13th 2013.
Peter Jackson films the cast's reaction to a YouTube fan video
Three Elves are watching a YouTube video. This is not, contrary to how it might appear, the start of a bad joke but is actual video footage posted by Peter Jackson on his Facebook page. The cast and crew of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug are amused by fan reactions to the trailer released on Tuesday. Their mirth results from watching two girls, Alex and Kellie or Fili and Kili (as they've named themselves on YouTube), view the film trailer for the first time. The three elves in question are Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly and Lee Pace. Lilly said the fan's reaction was 'more intense than the trailer'.
Other fans have commented on the trailer - on Jackson's Facebook page - saying it is 'awesome'; that they 'can't wait' and that the director is 'the greatest'. Whilst the majority of fan comments are positive, there are a few who have complained (via Facebook and Twitter) that the special effects are poor. Criticism has particularly directed at Smaug who is described as 'disappointing'.
Karen Gillan will join Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and Lee Pace in Marvel's new movie.
Karen Gillan, who is best known for her character Amy Pond, the companion to Matt's Smith's incarnation of BBC's Doctor Who, has been cast as the "lead female villain" in Marvel Studios' upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The 25 year-old Scottish actress from Inverness, is keeping herself busy with an additional part in upcoming indie supernatural horror Oculus (dir. Mike Flanagan), alongside Katee Sackhoff.
Glenn Close will play a role similar to Samuel L Jackson's in The Avengers.
Well this is a surprising casting, though one that sort of makes a ton of sense. According to the Deadline.com, Marvel Studios has landed Oscar winning actress Glenn Close to play a major new role in its latest franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy. The actress will reportedly play a leadership role in Nova Corp, the intergalactic space control.
The new James Gunn-directed movie goes into production next month, so Marvel have left it late to cast what is essentially a major role. The movie already boasts a pretty decent looking cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and John C. Reilly. Pratt landed the lead role following a search that included Marvel looking at Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess and Eddie Redmayne.
Sources tell Deadline that Close's role will be the closest thing to the one that Samuel L. Jackson plays in The Avengers, though perhaps with more of an edge. Close has proven she can play the hardnosed character in the likes of Damages, Fatal Attraction and, err, 101 Dalmatians and we see her being a real hit in Guardians.

A historic epic from Steven Spielberg carries a lot of baggage, but he surprises us with a remarkably contained approach to an iconic figure. What's most unexpected is that this is a political drama, not a biopic. It's a long, talky movie about back-room deal-making on a very big issue: ending slavery in America. It also has one of the most intelligent, artful scripts of the past year, plus a remarkably wry central performance.
Daniel Day-Lewis constantly grounds Abraham Lincoln in his earthy humanity, good humour and tenacious desire to do the right thing, no matter what it takes. The film essentially covers just one month in which Lincoln works to outlaw slavery before ending four years of civil war. Secretary of State Seward (Strathairn) reluctantly supports this plan, enlisting three shady negotiators (Spader, Nelson and Hawkes) to convince wavering members of Congress to vote in favour of a constitutional amendment. Meanwhile at home, Lincoln is under pressure from his wife Mary (Field) to keep their oldest son Robert (Gordon-Levitt) off the battlefield.
All of this political wrangling makes the film feel like a 19th century version of The West Wing, and Kushner's script crackles with wit, nuance and passion, clearly echoing today's political debates about issues like gun control and human rights. We find ourselves wishing that our own politicians were this creative about getting the votes they need on important issues. This meaty approach gives the cast terrific dialog to bite into, although Spielberg never lets anyone run riot with scenery-chomping antics. The closest is probably Jones, as the fiery anti-slavery supporter Thaddeus Stevens. He's terrific in this role. And Field shines too in as the spiky Mary. Even if she's about a decade too old for the character, she brings intelligence and emotion to every scene.

Not long since the harrowing and almost fatal birth of their daughter Renesmee, newly born vampire Bella Cullen nee Swan and her new husband Edward have even more deadly drama to contend with. With prestigious Italian vampire coven the Volturi led by Vampire Irina accusing the rapidly growing Renesmee of being a demon child, Bella and Edward have no time to enjoy married life and bring her up together like regular parents. When their homelife is threatened by those who wish only to protect themselves, they realise that they must band together a formidable army to fight the Volturi down in a battle if they wish to save the life of their mortal child.
This much-adored vampire love story finally comes to a close in one of the most dramatic conclusions of fantasy fiction ever written. Based on the best-selling novels by Stephenie Meyer, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2' has been directed by 'Part 1's director Bill Condon ('Dreamgirls', 'Gods and Monsters') with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who has written all of the other screenplays for the blockbuster series) working alongside him. This final instalment is set to become a major box office hit with its release on November 16th 2012.
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Mackenzie Foy, Peter Facinelli, Dakota Fanning, Kellan Lutz, Maggie Grace, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Michael Sheen, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Jamie Campbell Bower, Boo Boo Stewart, Joe Anderson, Billy Burke, Lee Pace, MyAnna Buring, Christopher Heyerdahl, Noel Fisher, Alex Meraz, Rami Malek, Cameron Bright, Mia Maestro, Charlie Bewley, Christian Camargo, Angela Sarafyan, Julia Jones, Daniel Cudmore, Tinsel Korey, Judith Shekoni, Chaske Spencer, Casey LaBow, Kiowa Gordon, Bronson Pelletier, Omar Metwally, Tracey Heggins, Andrea Gabriel, Toni Trucks, Lisa Howard, Patrick Brennan, Tony Bentley, Valorie Curry & JD Pardo.
'Lincoln' will show the last four months of President Abraham Lincoln's life as he campaigned for freedom before he was tragically assassinated in 1865. It will reveal in detail the extent of his conflict with various members of the cabinet over his decision to abolish the slave trade towards the end of the American Civil War. His very close success in the House of Representatives over the proposition of the Thirteenth Amendment which outlawed slavery is portrayed as one of the most crucial steps in his work against the trade. The last months of his life also saw him fail to negotiate an end to the War and saw the Union's ultimate victory.
This drama-fuelled biopic is the important story of one of the most influential and inspiring presidents of the United States that have ever been in office. It has been based on some of the biography 'Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln' by Doris Kearns Goodwin with an adapted screenplay by Oscar nominee Tony Kushner ('Munich') and the directing genius of the legendary Steven Spielberg ('Jaws', 'E.T.', 'Jurassic Park', 'Schindler's List', 'War of the Worlds') who wanted to show Lincoln 'at work' and not just 'posing for the history books'. Spielberg has described the former president as 'arguably the greatest working President in American history'. The movie is set for release in the UK on January 25th 2013.
Starring: Daniel Day Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones , Michael Stuhlbarg, Jackie Earle Haley, Jared Harris, Lee Pace, Sally Field, James Spader, Julie White, John Hawkes, David Strathairn, Bruce McGill, Hal Holbrook and Adam Driver.
After their reckless marriage ceremony and the traumatic near-death-experience that was the birth of their daughter Renesmee in 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1', newly turned vampire Bella Swan and Edward Cullen think they have overcome the worst. However, 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' forces them to face a vicious battle with the Volturi after they hear a false claim the rapidly growing Renesmee is an immortal child; the conception of which is outlawed due to fact that immortal children can become out of control and dangerous. Bella and Edward must protect their daughter and themselves from assassination from the Volturi and find a way to prove that Renesmee is not in fact immortal.
Bella Swan is finally a vampire. She discovers that the world seems somewhat brighter now and learns about the heightened senses that vampires have. Her body temperature now matches Edward's, so she no longer finds him cold to the touch. She takes quickly to vampire life - very quickly, to the surprise of the Cullens, who were anticipating that it would take decades - even centuries - for Bella to adjust.
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit, who lives a quiet life in The Shire. His peace is interrupted one day when Gandalf arrives on his doorstep, persuading Bilbo to hold a party in his home. Bilbo refuses but has no choice but to agree when Gandalf pesters him.
Sam Davis is an unsuccessful children's book author, who persuades his estranged best friend Marshall to accompany him on a weekend away from Brooklyn. Marshall is all too eager to go, believing this will be a chance for him and Sam to catch up and reconnect.

When Beth attends her sisters sporadic wedding in Rome, she expects to fulfil her duties as maid of honour and return to her job focused life in New York. Sick of waiting for love to take its natural course, Beth takes matters into her own hands and jumps into the Fontana di Amore from which she takes a few of the coins to bring her luck on her quest to find love.

The Fall tells a story within a story, one being interpreted by an innocent child, and Tarsem does all he can to give us an honest version of this process. Little Cantica Untaru plays the child, Alexandria, in the hospital with a broken arm, and apparently the actress is not fully aware of the filmmaking process, which explains the striking naturalism in her conversations with the paralyzed Roy (Lee Pace). This leaves us unsure of Untaru's acting ability, but blissfully so, compared to the unnerving technique detectable in someone as young as Dakota Fanning.
