NEWS - Quando Batman portava i pantaloni corti...Al via da domenica l'atteso "Gotham", in volo cross-casting da Italia 1 a Premium Action con una Bat-fune!
Anche Batman è stato ragazzo. Ha vissuto un’adolescenza fortunata, racchiusa nelle pareti dorate della famiglia Wayne. Fino al giorno in cui i genitori sono stati uccisi e il suo destino è diventato quello di battersi per la giustizia nei panni del Cavaliere Oscuro. Arriva finalmente in Italia la serie più attesa dell’anno, capostipite di una “new wave” di serie tv ispirate ai fumetti che invaderanno il piccolo schermo nella nuova stagione. “Gotham”, il serial che racconta le origini dell’Uomo Pipistrello, parte su Italia 1 domenica 12 ottobre in prima serata con i primi due episodi in anteprima, per poi passare su Premium Action dal 20 ottobre, ogni lunedì sempre in prima serata. E’ la prima volta che una serie tv viene trasmessa in “cross-casting” da un canale free a uno pay. In coincidenza con i 75 anni di “Batman”, “Gothamè la pù grande scommessa televisiva d’Oltreoceano degli ultimi anni. Per diversi motivi. 
Travalica il fumetto della DC Comics apparso per la prima volta nel 1939 squarciando le tenebre della metropoli del titolo - la più famosa dell’immaginario a strisce - che hanno avvolto le origini dei personaggi.
Manda in soffitta la storica serie tv del 1966 dove, come scrisse “Tv Guide”, “il super-eroe protagonista e i suoi antagonisti sfoggiano tutine talmente variopinte che le scorgeresti in una notte di nebbia fitta senza luna”. 
Prende il testimone dalla recente saga cinematografica di successo di Christopher Nolan, adottando effetti molto speciali e portando alla ribalta la figura secondaria, nei fumetti, del detective James Gordon, interpretato su grande schermo da Gary Oldman nella sua fase adulta. 
Non per niente è stata definita dalla prestigiosa Television Critics Associationthe most promising new series of the upcoming season” e dal prestigioso “Hollywood Reporter” quale “the highly anticipated tv show of the season”. Tanto per dire, ancor prima di partire in America, il telefilm si è aggiudicato l’influente Critics Choice Television Award quale “most exciting new series”.  
A Gotham City il giovane detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) viene incaricato dell’omicidio più sconvolgente avvenuto nella metropoli, ovvero l’assassinio di Thomas e Martha Wayne sotto gli occhi del figlio Bruce (David Mazouz). E’ con quest’ultimo che Gordon intreccia un legame che condurrà alla scoperta del killer, non prima di venire in contatto con il sottobosco in fermento della città dalle lunghe ombre: la boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith); Oswald Cobblepot, futuro “Pinguino” (Robin Lord Taylor); Selina Kyle, destinata a diventare “Catwoman” (Camren Bicondova); il giovane Enigmista, alias dottor Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith); la futura Poison Ivy ancora sotto le spoglie di Ivy Pepper (Clare Foley). Non mancheranno le prime malefatte di Joker (il personaggio più avvolto nel mistero dalla produzione con l’intento di creare l’attesa) e la presenza del maggiordomo Alfred (Sean Pertwee), colui alla quale viene affidata la tutela del giovane orfano Bruce Wayne, prossimo Cavaliere Oscuro. Completano il quadro, il capitano della polizia Sarah Essen (Zabryna Guevara) e il detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), partner d’indagini di Gordon. 
La serie verrà trasmessa su Premium Action in accoppiata, dal 20 ottobre, con un altro titolo cult dei fumetti quale “Arrow”, giunto alla 3° stagione inedita e ad oggi il telefilm più visto in Italia negli ultimi anni (al suo passaggio su Italia 1 ha superato quota 3 milioni e mezzo di spettatori). Sempre Premium Action farà tris nel marzo 2015 con l’arrivo di “The Flash” (anch’esso tratto da un fumetto della DC Comics), atteso spin-off di “Arrow” con al centro il super-eroe più veloce dell’universo. 
La serie firmata da Bruno Heller, ideatore di “The Mentalist”, è stata lanciata con il claim ad effetto “The Good. The Evil. The Beginning”. Il protagonista di “Gotham”, è rimasto ferito sul set. Benjamin McKenzie, già front-man del cult generazionale “The OC”, si è ferito sulla fronte nel corso delle riprese durante le quali, lo stesso McKenzie, ha rifiutato la controfigura. Le immagini della ferita e del ricovero le ha postate lo stesso attore su Instagram. McKenzie ha commentato con la seguente didascalia le foto: “Una sequenza di combattimento andata male! Un cavolo di muro troppo vero, Batman!”. Il caso vuole che l’incidente sia avvenuto il giorno del compleanno dell’interprete messosi in evidenza anche nella serie poliziesca “Southland”.

L'EDICOLA DI LOU - Stralci, cover e commenti sui telefilm dai media italiani e stranieri

CORRIERE DELLA SERA
"True Detective": oltre la serie, un evento mentale
"«It's not TV, it's HBO». Ancora una volta il marchio della più conosciuta tv via cavo non tradisce e «True Detective» ha tutti i caratteri di ciò che si manifesta innanzitutto come evento mentale, non importa se libro o film o serie tv. Di solito, il crime tenta di spingere lo spettatore in un mondo snebbiato in cui gli accertamenti diventano, insieme, prove inconfutabili e riparazioni; qui succede il contrario. I delitti del temibile serial killer sono secondari di fronte a un'altra indagine introspettiva ben più profonda: i due detective si interrogano a vicenda, lottando contro i loro demoni. Alla fine il mistero non riguarda l'assassino ma chi gli dà la caccia (Sky Atlantic, venerdì, 21.10). I due detective Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) e Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) vengono richiamati dalla squadra omicidi della Louisiana nel 2012 per un caso che avevano affrontato nel 1995: si tratta di dare la caccia a un killer seriale che uccide giovani donne con rituali satanici. Questo sbalzo temporale imprime un formidabile andamento narrativo che ci permette di entrare nella vita dei due poliziotti attraverso lo schema classico della costruzione in abisso; l'uno, Martin, più pragmatico (ma anche lui ha i suoi bei fantasmi, a cominciare dal bere) e l'altro, Rust, un pessimista cosmico che «poteva litigare con il cielo se non gli piaceva il tono di blu». La serie è stata scritta da Nic Pizzolato, che ha curato scene e dialoghi; non di rado nella sceneggiatura c'è compiacimento letterario e pretenziosità. La regia dei primi otto episodi è di Cary Fukunaga. In America si lavora già alla seconda stagione. Al posto di Fukunaga ci sarà Justin Lin mentre i due detective saranno interpretati da Vince Vaughn e Colin Farrell". (Aldo Grasso, 04.10.2014)

NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibali! Torna "Twin Peaks" (ma in realtà non se n'è mai andato!). L'occhio di Lynch (e Frost) si riapre sulla cittadina televisiva più inquietante di sempre: il countdown è fissato per il 2016, ma l'attesa (e il battage) comincia ORA
Articolo tratto da "Variety"

Twin Peaks,” the ABC series that was a forerunner of today’s offbeat serialized cable dramas, is coming back to life with nine new episodes to air on Showtime in 2016.
Series creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are working away on the scripts, with Lynch planning to direct all nine episodes. The episodes are expected to bow in early 2016, which would coincide with the 25th anniversary of the show’s demise after two seasons on ABC in 1990 and 1991.
The new segs will be set in the present day and continue storylines established in the second season. Frost emphasized that the new episodes will not be a remake or reboot but will reflect the passage of time since viewers last checked in with key characters. As part of the deal, Showtime will rerun episodes from the original series’ first two seasons leading up to the 2016 premiere.
Frost would not elaborate on plot details or even the characters that will come into play. But the story threads that will picked up were “baked in to the last episode,” Frost told Variety. He called it “the next chapter of the story” and said that the passage of 25 years will be an important element in the plot.
“For those followers of the show who felt bereft when the show ended where it did all those years ago are going to like where it goes from here,” Frost assured. “And we hope that a lot of people who haven’t been to Twin Peaks yet are going to be equally interested in where the story goes from where we left off.”
Twin Peaks” was ahead of its time in its unusual, often surreal approach to telling the yarn of a murder mystery in a fictional small town in Washington state. The show bowed with a ton of buzz — Lynch was red-hot as a feature helmer at the time — but it had little in the way of a sustained audience by broadcast TV standards of the day.
The series has remained a cult favorite over the years and thus was a ripe candidate for revival amid the general mania in the TV biz for reinventing vintage film and TV titles.
Lynch and Frost have retained ownership of Twin Peaks” all these years. CBS has distribution rights to the show through the deficit-financing pact that Lynch/Frost Prods. set back in the day with Aaron Spelling’s Worldvision distribution arm, which CBS now controls.
Another key connection that helped the new-model “Twin Peaks” land at Showtime is the pay cabler’s Gary Levine, exec VP of original programming, who was the ABC exec who developed and championed the show during its original run.

Lynch and Frost have talked about taking another run at the Twin Peaks world over the years, but the effort got serious about three years ago when the two had one of their semi-regular lunches at Hollywood’s Musso and Frank Grill. It was not lost on either of them that “Twin Peaks” had proved to be a TV pioneer in many respects. Aspects of the show that were seen as a handicap in the ABC days are now pillars of the contempo generation of edgy cable and pay cable series.
“I always felt that in ‘Twin Peaks’ we were more or less filming a novel — drilling down to a level of detail you weren’t used to seeing in network storytelling,” Frost said. “Over the years a lot of people have credited us with inspiring them to think differently in how to tell stories. Now that we’re doing (the show) again, I’m happy to come back and get in on the action.”
Lynch and Frost didn’t shop the series around. Showtime was a natural home because of the latitude offered by pay cable, plus the comfort level offered by the connection with Levine.
“Showtime was the place we felt most comfortable going to after meeting with Gary and (Showtime prexy) David Nevins and seeing their passion for the show,” Frost said. “Gary we consider a good friend and David I’ve known for quite a while.”
There’s no word yet about casting. In the original series, Kyle MacLachlan played the pivotal role of the Agent Dale Cooper, the FBI agent who comes to the small town to investigate the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer.
After that mystery was solved, the show explored even more seamy goings-on and oddball characters in the town. The pilot for the original series was shot on location in Washington state, but subsequent episodes were primarily lensed on stages in the San Fernando Valley. There’s no decision yet on a shooting location for the new segs.
Frost said it was still to be determined whether the revival will be a one-time limited series or an ongoing effort.
“The proof will be in the pudding. If we have a great time doing it and everybody loves it and they decide there’s room for more, I could see it going that way,” he said. The original “Twin Peaks” premiered on April 8, 1990, and had its last original telecast in June 1991. A prequel story, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me,” was released as a feature by New Line in 1992.
The TV series has endured for a new generation of fans through periodic homevid releases and more recently, a streaming pact with Netflix. The AFI hosted a tribute to the show in Los Angeles in July in connection with the Blu-ray/DVD release “Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery.”
Given the show’s legacy and the rabid fandom it has inspired, Frost admitted that he and Lynch feel the pressure to make the new episodes worthy additions to the canon.
“We can’t rest on our laurels,” he said, which is a key reason why Lynch has committed to directing all nine hours.
“This show is a kind of thanks to all of the incredibly passionate fans we’ve had over the years that have kept the show alive and passed it down to the next generation,” Frost said. “We’ve been lucky enough to have one of the coolest, most intelligent, most inquisitive group of people attracted to our show. We’re happy for them that the show is coming back.”
In a statement issued by Showtime, Lynch and Frost quipped: “The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back. We’re very excited. May the forest be with you.”
PICCOLO GRANDE SCHERMO - Clamoroso al CiBa-ywatch! Tenetevi stretti ai salvagente: si farà il film della mitica serie dei salvataggi "on the beach". Protagonista quel muscolo monoespressivo di Dwayne Johnson! Pronti al Bay-cottaggio se non ci saranno Pam-Pam Anderson e David Hasselhoff

What, you don’t know the Baywatch theme song by heart? Well, I guess you weren’t a masturbatory adolescent boy in the days before the internet. And now Paramount is trying to capitalize on the fact that idiots like me remember the Baywatch theme like it was our college fight song by making a feature adaptation. Oh, and it’s going to star Dwayne The Rock Johnson.
Paramount is moving forward with its big-screen adaptation of Baywatch and has loosely attached Dwayne Johnson for beach patrol duties. The studio also has hired Justin Malen to rewrite and has attached the hot comedy writing team of Sean Anders and John Morris (We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses 2) to direct.
Johnson has long been rumored to head up a Baywatch movie, and the oft-shirtless star would seem a perfect fit for the action film that takes place along the perilous shores of Santa Monica.
Oh, like all it takes to be in Baywatch is the ability to look good shirtless? How DARE you. Somewhere David Hasselhoff is drunkenly eating a hamburger off the floor. The Hollywood Reporter actually got through this entire article without mentioning Hasselhoff once, which has to be a real kick to the groin for the guy who once tore down the Berlin Wall.

At one point the action was set to revolve around a series of shark attacks that led the Baywatch team to investigate a drug-smuggling operation. It is unclear what Malen’s take will be for the latest version.
Malen has become an in-demand writer after his 2011 Blacklist script Bastards became a hot comedy property. Montecito  will produce that film, and Alcon will finance. Malen also wrote the sequel to Bad Teacher for Sony, with Cameron Diaz attached to star. [HollywoodReporter]
Anyway, it’s hard to know what “loosely attached” means at this stage, or whether The Rock would be playing Mitch Buchanan or someone else. All I know is that if they need a Hobie, I’ve got two words for them: Miles. Teller.
I’LL BE READY (I’LL BE READY)
NEVER YOU FEAR (NO DON’T YOU FEAR)
I’LL BE READY
FOREVER AND ALWAYS… I’M ALWAAAAAYS HEAAAAAAARE
They damn well better do the crocodile episode.
