NEWS - Fermi tutti! In una scena alternativa delle mazzate di Negan in "TWD" doveva morire Maggie...(hanno girato 11 omicidi diversi, in realtà, i furbacchioni del marketing). Vedi video (e poi muori)!
News tratta da
One of the most absurd stories that came out of The Walking Dead's filming of season seven was the lengths to which AMC wanted to keep the show's big secret: Negan's victim from that absurd season six cliffhanger. There were 11 potential victims, and so the series reportedly filmed all 11 characters being beaten to death by Negan and his beloved barbed wire-covered baseball bat, Lucille. 
Of course, anyone who watched the season seven premiere knows who's on the end of Negan's bat: Abraham, followed by Glenn when Daryl makes the mistake of punching — punching! — Negan in the face after the villain warned the group not to interrupt his unsettling entrance. 
However, some leaked footage has made it online that seemingly shows another victim meeting the end of Negan's bat: Maggie. It appears her death would've ostensibly happened in place of that of her husband, Glenn — who, in this clip, is instead knocked out in the video after protesting his wife's gruesome fate. 
To be clear, if The Walking Dead went this route, it would've been disastrous. There's a disturbing element to the show fetishizing Negan's kills — and there's nothing to like about what happened to Glenn and Abraham. But why would The Walking Dead want to dole out that fate to a pregnant woman? 
It would've been the most indicting instance of violence against women on television since Sansa Stark's controversial rape scene in Game of Thrones' fifth season. Fans of The Walking Dead have suggested they'd boycott the show after the season six cliffhanger (which, based on the premiere's stellar ratings, was a bit of a stretch), but something that calamitous could've actually caused them to lose some viewers.  
The good news, however, is that AMC didn't opt for a Maggie death, and there's a decent explanation as to how this footage came to light. While Rick is processing what happened in the premiere, he envisions Negan's bat making contact with all the members of the group — including his son, Carl, as well as Maggie.
It's the show's attempt to visualize the trauma Rick just went through at the hands of Negan. (Though in reality, it's also just a way for them to justify spending time on all those alternate death takes.)
NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibali! L'accoppiata natalizia "Stranger Things" + Peanuts brilla sotto l'Albero!

News tratta da "The Hollywood Reporter" 
"That's what happiness is all about in the end — the people who truly care about you. The folks who would do anything to get you out of a creepy parallel swamp universe."
As far as X-meets-Y viral videos go, Merry Christmas Will Byers is pretty tough to resist. The new three-minute short, created by Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez, envisions the kids from the Netflix breakout sci-fi series Stranger Things as characters in the animated Peanuts universe, set (of course) to the Vince Guaraldi score from A Charlie Brown Christmas.
In the clip, a post-first-season Will Byers attempts to get to the source of his continued anxiety since being saved from the Upside Down, seeking psychiatric counsel from an unhelpful Eleven and receiving a typically unintelligible wah-wah response when asking his mom, Joyce, for help. Eventually, he realizes that his friends have aided him simply by being there for him — unlike poor Barb, who stays being eaten alive by maggots. ("Good... grief.") And before you ask: Yes, there is a dance number set to the show's now-iconic synth-goth theme song.
All that's missing is a scene were Eleven telekinetically pulls the football away as Will tries to kick it. Watch below.

TELEFILM ART - The Walking Trump! Poster anti-Hillary con citazione del Negan di "TWD" hanno invaso Los Angeles come un'epidemia

News tratta da Hollywood Reporter
This is fantastic and it’s why I absolutely adore Sabo and Unsavory Agents! His posters have surfaced again in Los Angeles and Hollywood… this time his target again is Hillary Clinton and it’s a doozy. Fans of the ‘Walking Dead’ will flip over this one. It’s vintage Sabo – irreverent and as politically incorrect as they come.
His newest creation nails it: “Negan wants 50% of your shit. Hillary demands it all.” Exactly right… if she gets into office, she’ll take all our rights, all our income and all our freedoms. She’s a blood-sucking demon straight out of Hades. The posters are showing up everywhere with signature blood splatter for aesthetics. Negan would be a dream compared to the Hildabeast. Maybe he should run for the presidency. With Hillary’s voter fraud, a legion of zombies is probably shuffling to the voting booths… one body part at a time. She certainly has the un-dead vote.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The artwork from conservative artist Sabo consists of blood-spattered text reading, “Negan wants 50% of your shit. Hillary demands it all.”
The Walking Dead has been hijacked by a prolific street artist to protest Hillary Clinton and the presidential nominee’s entire Democratic Party.
The artwork from conservative artist Sabo consists of blood-spattered text reading, “Negan wants 50% of your shit. Hillary demands it all.”
The sentiments are based on Negan, a new villain on AMC’s hit show who expressed his desire for stuff that doesn’t belong to him.
“In the spirit of The Walking Dead’s newest villain, Negan, I drew up these posters and placed them outside of the AMC Studio offices in Santa Monica, as well as near the CNN building on Sunset Boulevard, where there will be an anti-Hillary protest,” Sabo tells THR.
“The first time I heard Negan ask for ’50 percent of everything you had,’ my first thought was, ‘damn, only 50 percent?’ And he’s asking! If Democrats had their way, they’d take everything by decree.”
Sabo is an unabashed conservative Republican deep in the bowels of Hollywood. Not an easy go of it for sure. And he has done ‘Hillary’ art before. See it here – warning: may not be safe for work – you’ve been warned. Man, he should tell us how he really feels. Heh.
Clinton will wield power as only a despot can. If she succeeds in getting elected, we can only pray that somehow the Congress keeps her in check. Of course, they did a crappy job with Obama, so hope fades in that arena.
Sabo started displaying his political opinion in art form when he got sick and tired of having liberal memes shoved down his throat. He was brilliant with Ted Cruz – his posters in support of him were iconic to say the least. And his posters showing his disdain for Bernie Sanders are epic. Take a walk on the wild political side… you just might find that you really like it.

NEWS - Super-Supercar! La mitica serie degli anni '80 pronta al reboot digitale nel 2017

News tratta da
Knight Rider, the 1980s action series that made David Hasselhoff a star, is getting the Machinima treatment. The digital network said today it is partnering with producer-director Justin Lin, YOMYOMF and NBCUniversal Brand Development to produce a digital series reboot that will target a 2017 launch.
Lin, who knows something about the care and feeding of franchises after directing Fast & Furious 6 and most recently Star Trek Beyond, is set to produce the series which is now in development. He also is developing another car-centric property, Hot Wheels, as a feature film at Legendary Pictures.
Machinma is backed by Warner Bros but is teaming with NBCU here. NBC aired the original series about the smart-car named KITT and its mysterious do-gooder driver Michael Knight, played by Hasselhoff. Created by Glen A. Larson, it ran four seasons from 1982-1986. The network tried to reboot the series in 2008 with Justin Bruening in the lead role but it lasted only one season.
Machinima has specialized in live-action series based on TV and and video game franchises. This will join Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, Mortal Kombat: Legacy and and Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn among others. Combined, those series have garnered more than 300 million views on Machinima.
Knight Rider is an iconic franchise whose concepts of AI and autonomous vehicles were science fiction in the 1980s and are now science fact,” CEO Chad Gutstein said. “Justin is one of the leading storytellers of his generation and we couldn’t be more excited to work with him on re-i

NEWS - Rivoluzione, ragazze! Tutte le puntate della seconda stagione di "Jessica Jones" saranno dirette da donne

News tratta da "Variety"
All 13 episodes of the second season of “Marvel’s Jessica Joneswill be directed by women, according to executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.
Rosenberg discussed the all-female directing roster during her panel at Transforming Hollywood 7: Diversifying Entertainment, a conference held Friday at University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
Rosenberg said that in the second season of the superhero show, she had wanted to increase the number of female directors — a goal that Marvel was completely on board with, she noted. Given how in-demand many women directors are these days, she and her fellow producers had set their sights on booking women first, she said, and contracting male directors later in the pre-production process. But then someone else involved in the production — she didn’t specify who — floated the idea of booking only women as directors. Rosenberg was honest about the fact that she hadn’t contemplated that concept prior to that conversation, but she said she quickly jumped at the opportunity.
When it comes to behind-the-scenes personnel, hiring an inclusive array of people was “a conscious decision and it’s very important that showrunners do that,” she said.
That directing roster puts “Jessica Jones” in very rarified company, as one of the few one-hour dramas to have an all-female list of directors. Ava DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar,” which airs on OWN, also had only female directors during its debut season.
Rosenberg didn’t divulge any details about the second season of “Jessica Jones,” except to tell Variety before her panel that scripts were in the midst of completion and shooting was set for next year. With Henry Jenkins and Stacy L. Smith of USC, who moderated her panel, Rosenberg freely discussed drawing on a variety of perspectives when coming up with the story arcs of the New York-set Marvel drama. 
“When I interview a writer, I’m less interested in what you’ve been doing professionally than I am in where you’re from, what your parents do, what’s your life experience, what are you bringing to the table personally?” Rosenberg said. “I don’t want a bunch of people who look and sound [like me] and have the experiences I have.”
Rosenberg, who also penned the “Twilight” movies, in addition to her experience writing for other TV and film franchises, told her audience that persistence was one of the key attributes that aspiring creatives should bring to Hollywood, whatever their background, gender, or culture.
“I think the only reason I’m sitting here is because of tenacity. It’s a tough business. You really have to be able to take a hit,” noted Rosenberg. “I’ve gotten fired so many times, I can’t even count now.” 
“That’s the nature of the business, it’s really hard,” she added. Rosenberg said that “delusional optimism” had allowed her to survive. On the bad days, “you have to be able to pick yourself up and say that tomorrow is going to be better than today.”
The all-day conference featured an array of producers, writers, academics, and activists. Producer Effie T. Brown (“Dear White People,” “Project Greenlight”), Desmin Borges (“You’re the Worst”), Melissa Silverstein of Women in Hollywood, Javier Grillo-Marxuach (“The Middleman,” “Lost,” “Xena”), and Dodai Stewart, editor-in-chief of Fusion, were among the panelists discussing where Hollywood has made progress on screen and behind the scenes — and where that progress has stalled. 
But as Rosenberg and DuVernay proved — as has FX— changing directing stats is far from impossible.
In an earlier panel, Melissa Goodman, director of the LGBTQ, Gender and Reproductive Justice Project, ACLU of Southern California, noted that there were methods of increasing inclusion that have a strong track record of effectiveness in many industries — not just in Hollywood.
The strategies revolved around setting targets for hiring, and revisiting the progress toward those measurable goals at regular intervals. “Track the data and pay attention to it,” Goodman said. “It’s actually pretty simple.”

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

"The Young Pope", girotondo grottesco nella Curia
"'The Young Pope' rappresenta un paradosso capace di scuotere Il mondo dellaantipapa, serie che parla di un antipapa, un Caligola con abito talare, una contraddizione che vuole affermare un'idea (Sky Atlantic, venerdi, 21.15, 10 episodi). E il paradosso si regge su un azzardo linguistico di non poco conto: azzerare, o quasi, la trama e affidare il procedere del racconto ai soli dialoghi. Inutile citare Fellini (troppo espliciti i riferimenti) o Antonioni (si allude a la Notte con la battuta sui capelli che fanno male?). Sorrentino si cita da solo. E lo fa troppo spesso. Il protagonista di «The Young Pope» è Lenny Belardo (Jude Law), viene da New York e ha 47 anni. È diventato Papa grazie agli intrighi del card. Voiello (Silvio Orlando), che desiderava un Pontefice mediatico e manipolabile. Ha preso il nome di Pio XIII e se ne infischia della Curia. Anzi, ha scelto di farsi aiutare da suor Mary (Diane Keaton), la suora americana che l'ha cresciuto quando era in orfanotrofio, dopo l'abbandono da parte di genitori hippies (evidenti i riferimenti a papa Pacelli e a suor Pascalina). Il tradimento è la sua ossessione. II Papa si rivela un personaggio stravagante (per colazione vuole una Cherry Coke e cita Banksy e Mina), inafferrabile (pensa che Il gioco sia l'unica possibilità di sentirsi in armonia con Dio), vendicativo e blasfemo (vuole che Il suo confessore gli riveli i peccati degli altri cardinali). Il bisogno di dominare dispensa dal bisogno di credere. «The Young Pope» procede per illuminazioni che a volte si risolvono in vividi squarci sugli intrighi di Curia e altre volte in cicalecci teologici. C'è un'ironia che muove i personaggi negli antri vaticani e nei labirinti delle dottrine, capace, nei momenti migliori, di trasformarsi in un girotondo grottesco da cui è fuggito lo Spirito. L'Intrigo è conseguenza diretta del Peccato, la materializzazione immediata della Caduta. Di qui parte la storia del giovane Papa". (Aldo Grasso, 22.10.2016)

GOSSIP - Shay Mitchell herSELF dixit: "ho amato 'PLL' ma mi sarebbe piaciuto essere nel cast di 'Gossip Girl'!"
Shay Mitchell shows off her killer figure on the November 2016 cover of Self magazine.
Here’s what the 29-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress had to share with the mag:
On starting off as a waitress: “I would walk around as though I were in a movie. I was already a successful actress in my mind…It was a corkboard in my kitchen, with pictures of the Hollywood sign and Gossip Girl because I wanted to be on a show like that. I really believe in the power of visualizing—having faith—and then working your ass off.”
On being bullied as a kid: “Instead of going to the cafeteria, I’d say, ‘Why deal with this?’ and I’d eat in a bathroom stall. At least when I left school for the day, it stopped. It doesn’t now. You have your phone on you, and the bullying continues. I can’t imagine having all these inescapable outlets when I was that age”.
On PLL ending: “It was an amazing experience. The crew, the cast—they’re my family”.
