AMC has announced that Breaking Bad season 5 will premiere Sunday, July 15 @10pm. Additionally, it was also announced that the final chapter of the series will conclude a year later, beginning summer 2013.
Essentially creating two “final” seasons of Breaking Bad, the divided seasons will each contain 8 episodes. Initially positioned as a “super-sized” final season, AMC’s decision to air Breaking Bad’s final season across two years always felt more like a way to take advantage of fan anticipation – rather than providing an extended conclusion for one of television’s best series.
Concluding the tale of the one-time chemisty teacher turned drug lord, much of television has been wondering what Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) fate will be. Will his faithful partner in crime, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), follow ...

Let’s face it: awareness for The Dark Knight Rises is widespread enough that Warner Bros. does not need to match Marvel’s marketing frenzy for The Avengers – or Sony’s ongoing public and viral campaign for Amazing Spider-Man.
Most moviegoers have already made up their minds as to whether or not they want (or, rather, intend) to see writer/director Christopher Nolan’s conclusion to his cinematic Batman trilogy; they just need to know the “when.”
That established pool of demand has allowed Warner Bros. to ease back on the furious “underground” (re: viral) marketing blitz it employed while cranking up the anticipation factor for The Dark Knight.

Hence, we ...

Television is no longer the walk in the park that is used to be. With many series focused on solving murders (or committing them), the landscape of television has become, well, deadly. But which series are the deadliest?
In a study conducted by Funeralwise.com, which analyzed the deaths in 8 episodes of 40 TV shows, it was revealed that Spartacus: Vengeance and Game of Thrones came out on top, with an average of 25 and 13 dead bodies per episode, respectively.
For those not familiar with either series, those numbers do appear to be extremely high. Though with Spartacus: Vengeance focusing on the gladiator rebellion, and Game of Thrones highlighting the civil war between the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, it’s not surprising to find these two series making the ...

Every film made by Paul Thomas Anderson to date (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love and There Will Be Blood) has felt like a labor of love. That’s literally the case with his latest project, The Master.
Anderson’s Master was put on indefinite hold back in early fall 2010, reportedly due to both artistic concerns on the filmmaker’s part and, of course, financing issues. Some 4-5 months later, Anderson secured the funding necessary for the project to move forward. Production eventually got underway another 4-5 months after that – and moviegoers will get to see the results during the 2012 Awards season, when The Master at last makes it way to theaters.
A teaser trailer for The Master has been released online. However, it does not focus on the film’s namesake: a charismatic intellectual (Oscar-winner ...
