NEWS - "X-Files" riparte da (Ground) Zero: il sequel accende i riflettori sui postumi dell'11 settembre 2001

News tratta da
The X-Files ended after the events of September 11, 2001. But because the ninth season never happened (IT NEVER HAPPENED), living in a post-9/11 world, as every writer ever puts it, is new territory for Agents Mulder and Scully to argue about the truth in. When the series returns to Fox in January 2016, it will cover “new century concerns,” to quote EW in a new cover story.
The X-Files ended right after 9/11,” says Carter. “A lot has happened since then. A lot of rollback of rights and liberties in the name of our protection. We’re being spied on now, we’re being lied to — all things that, for me, remind me of when I grew up, which was right around Watergate. I think we’re in similar and much more dire times right now.” (Via)
But don’t worry, it won’t be all confusing paranoia. There will still be monster-of-the-week episodes, including one, the intoxicatingly titled “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Man,” written by Darin Morgan, the genius who gave us “Jose Chung’s ‘From Outer Space'” and “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose.” Unfortunately, our nightmares of a “Home” sequel are unfounded: “Home Again” is unrelated to the incestous events of the first episode.
On the bright side, The AmericansAnnet Mahendru will guest star, and in even better news, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are more attractive now than they were 20 years ago.

NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibalix! Netflix supererà ABC, CBS, FOX e NBC nel 2016!

News tratta da "Variety"
If Netflix were a Nielsen-rated TV network, the No. 1 streaming service would, within a year, attain a larger 24-hour audience than each of the major broadcast networksABC, CBS, Fox and NBC — according to a Wall Street analyst firm.
To be clear, the analysis by FBR Capital Markets is not apples-to-apples. One major caveat: Nielsen TV ratings cover, at most, up to seven days of VOD and DVR viewing — and exclude online-video views, which networks say are an increasing part of the pie. Moreover, TV networks provide a different blend of content, such as live sports, that Netflix doesn’t. And anyway, Netflix doesn’t care about “ratings” of individual shows, given that it doesn’t sell ads and has steadfastly refused to disclose anything but general data about viewing.
But according to FBR analysts Barton Crockett and Chase White, the comparison is meant to be a barometer of the relative popularity of Netflix to traditional TV nets. The trajectory of Netflix users’ hours spent viewing illustrates the company’s growing market power, not just in the U.S. but internationally, they said.
The data highlights “Netflix’s domestic rise and dominance, bolstering confidence in its ability to grow subs and charge more domestically and to replicate its success in key markets around the world,” the analysts wrote in a research note.

Here’s how the analysts did the math: Netflix said users streamed about 10 billion hours of video in Q1 2015, equating to nearly two hours per subscriber per day. The FBR analysts calculated what Netflix’s Nielsen rating would be by dividing the two-hour figure by 24 hours, then multiplying that by the number of Netflix U.S. subs as a percentage of households.
That would give Netflix an overall rating in Q1 of 2.6, on par with ABC and NBC. And given that Netflix is growing usage at a compound annual growth rate of more than 40% — while broadcasters are on average declining — that means the streamer will have a larger 24-hour audience in one year than any broadcast network.

Another data point called out by FBR’s analysts: When consumers were asked if they had to choose between Netflix and a cable or satellite TV subscription, 57% picked Netflix, with 43% opting for pay TV, according to a survey FBR conducted with ClearVoice Research in April.
Netflix subscribers clearly like it more than pay TV, which we see as arguing for pricing leverage, since pay TV, on average, costs over $80 per month,” the analysts wrote, citing Netflix’s average $8 price point.
There’s no doubt Netflix will continue to flex its muscles — building on its 62 million-plus worldwide subscriber base as of the end of March. The only question is how much, and how quickly, the company will disrupt the current TV biz.

PICCOLO GRANDE SCHERMO - E' la serie più attesa solo per il trailer anni '80: "Wet Hot American Summer: FDOC" di Netflix
The first trailer for Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp miniseries is here, and we're already experiencing high UV rays of nostalgia. Shot like a cheesy '80s promotional video for the camp, with the added effect of a warped VHS tape. The teaser features stars like Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler at their weirdest and wildest.
The series is a prequel to the beloved 2001 cult classic film Wet Hot American Summer. Amazingly, Netflix was able to get almost the entire cast back together for the eight-episode series, despite the hurdles of wrangling major-wattage stars like Cooper, Molly Shannon and Paul Rudd. 
Showrunners David Wain and Michael Showalter were able to get other big names on board; viewers can get excited about seeing Kristen Wiig, Josh Charles, Jon Hamm and more join Camp Firewood.
Fans eager to get Wet and experience a blast from the past best pack their bags soon: First Day of Camp hits Netflix in just over a month, on July 31. 
Watch the full trailer below.
GOSSIP - La legge di Taraji: "non vado a letto con i colleghi" 
Taraji P. Henson lets her gorgeous hair run wild on the July 2015 cover of Allure magazine.
Here’s what the 44-year-old Empire star had to share with the mag:
On co-star Terrence Howard‘s legal issues: “Let’s pop the trunk to your life and see what’s dysfunctional and what’s bad…. At the end of the day, we’re all human and we got flaws and we got shit.”
On working her way into the industry by doing friends’ hair and nails: “I come from a family of hard workers….Oh, yeah, I knew how to hustle and make money. We used to do wet sets…I bought a hooded dryer, and I had my box of rollers…I could have gone to jail; I had no license whatsoever. But it was just my friends. They were like, ‘Girl, hook me up.’”
On not sleeping with co-stars: “I always wanted to be known for my work. Not who I dated. Not who I slept with…I have a gift, and my gift is acting. I started in the business at 26 with a kid, so I was smart enough to know reality from fantasy. I didn’t want to blur the lines. This is a job that I have to do. I cannot get caught up in it. And if I sleep with these guys, why would they want to work with me again? The conquest is up.”

PICCOLO GRANDE SCHERMO - Il film di "Kojak" va a...Diesel. Rimandato (ma non dimenticato) il progetto di riportare in vita il detective dal bulbo pelato

News tratta da
You probably forgot that Vin Diesel has been part of an effort to develop a big-screen revival of the cop TV series Kojak, but Diesel and Universal haven’t forgotten. The show, which originally starred Telly Savalas and was a great series in its time, isn’t exactly a property people have been clamoring to see revived. With Diesel’s other high-profile projects, from Guardians of the Galaxy to the Fast/Furious series, and even Riddick, something like Kojak is easy to overlook.
But Universal still plans to make the movie, or at least will continue to develop it. The studio has just pulled a new writer into the fold, showing that Kojak still has life.
Variety reports that playwright Philip Gawthorne has taken over screenwriting duties from James Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
Between the distinctive appearance of Telly Savalas and the show’s visual style, Kojak had a significant cultural impact. And given that the original conception of the show was something that would tackle issues of institutionalized racism and corruption, there’s every reason that Kojak could be relevant now.
(The property was briefly revived for a single-season TV show starring Ving Rhames, in 2005.)
Here’s the original show open for Kojak, followed by a full episode in case you need to get a little more of the show’s flavor.
