Even though NBC has not revealed their plans for the future of Community, there may be hope that the cult series will be returning to television next year – that is, if you believe Community producer Russ Kransoff.
Speaking at the Community panel from this year’s Paley Fest, Kransoff said that they’re “feeling pretty confident” about Community receiving a season 4 order. With Fringe producers using the phrase “negotiations are ongoing” for their possible renewal, the fact that Kransoff says that he feels “confident” may be a sign of good things to come.
Krannoff continued, revealing that “the people at NBC love the show” – adding further credence to the possibility of Community season 4 becoming a reality. Unfortunately as Eureka fans can certainly attest to, even when a network loves a series, that may not be enough to save ...

These days, it seems like an actress can’t break into the action movie lane without her name being tossed around the Interwebs as a possible candidate to play Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ long-stalled movie based on the Amazon heroine. Following a big fan push earlier this year to see Haywire star Gina Carano take on the role, comes the suggestion that John Carter‘s Lynn Collins should be considered for the part. Wonder Woman’s star power (no pun) doesn’t end there, as there is also an upcoming documentary that will explore the character’s impact on the cultural zeitgeist.
Compared to all that press Batman seems like small potatoes, but there is a new promo image that supposedly showcases Christian Bale’s costume in the upcoming

Back in the Summer of 2011, Paul Thomas Anderson fans were extremely excited when the acclaimed filmmaker finally began production on The Master: an original project the There Will Be Blood director has had much difficulty putting together due to a variety of reasons – including the potentially controversial content of the picture, which has long been described as a not-so-subtle allegory for L. Ron Hubbard’s creation of Scientology during the mid-2oth century.
Due to the prestigious nature of… well, everything related to the film (the director, cast, subject matter, etc.) it’s been presumed that The Weinstein Company was aiming to release The Master in theaters by late 2012, so as to position it as a strong awards contender. However, an official date has yet to be set.

Wally Pfister has firmly established himself as a pristine director of photography over the past decade, thanks to his stellar work in film, ranging from high-octane caper flicks (The Italian Job) to small-scale indie dramas (Laurel Canyon) and even productions that (at first) seem to have little intrinsic cinematic value (Moneyball).
Pfister is of course best known for his collaborations with filmmaker Christopher Nolan, which have snagged Pfister numerous Oscar nods for his camerawork on Batman Begins, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight – along with a win for Best Cinematography on Inception.
That’s why it’s big news that Pfister is slated to “go solo” behind the camera and make his feature-length directing debut later this year, after his latest collaboration with Nolan (on a tiny film you may have heard of, called The ...
