Mad Men Live Read & Series Finale At The Theatre At Ace Hotel On May 17, 2015

untitled

For the first time, Jason Reitman’s storied Live Read — which takes a beloved filmed script and turns it into a special one-time only re-enactment — will include a screening of the material that inspired it: Mad Men, created by its executive producer, Matthew Weiner. The event starts with Reitman directing a reading of the compelling finale of the award-winning period drama’s first season, the memorable “The Wheel,” (nominated for an Emmy for its writing, by Weiner and Robin Veith), which wrapped up many of the debut season’s storylines while propelling a great many more into orbit. As is his custom, Reitman will cast a group of actors to put their own particular spins on a classic piece of storytelling. The evening concludes with a screening of the very last episode ever of Mad Men at Ace Hotel. We’ll get to see how much the show sums up, and what questions it will raise and leave our imaginations to answer.

Created by Matthew Weiner; with Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery

Watch The Trailer For Disney Descendants

Descendants-Poster

Ever asked yourself what happened to the Disney Villains after the movie ends and our favorite heroes get their happily ever after? Well, wonder no more. According to Disney Descendants, an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, they were banished to the Isle of the Lost where they raised their children without magic, but with a healthy amount of mischief.

Add Ben, (Belle and Beast’s son) convincing his dad to let the Villain Kids go to school with all the children of heroes and royalty at Auradon Prep! Of course, the villains see this at their chance at redemption, and the Descendants see it as a chance to make their parents proud, but as the trailer tells us, high school is complicated.

Disney Descendants is directed by Kenny Ortega (of High School Musical and Newsies fame), and stars Dove Cameron as Mal (Maleficent’s daughter), Booboo Stewart as Jay (Jafar’s son), Cameron Boyce as Carlos (Cruella de Vil’s son), Sofia Carson as Evie (Evil Queen’s daughter), Kristen Chenoweth as Maleficent herself, and Kathy Najimy as Evil Queen.

Disney Descendants airs on Disney Channel this summer!

9781781167885_p0_v1_s600

Batman: A Celebration of the Classic TV Series by Robert Garcia is the definitive book for all fans of the popular Sixties show. Presented in a lavish 256 page hardcover edition, the book features classic images, rare stills, photography and production art and serves as the ultimate tribute for fans of the series.

Now at long last, collectors and Bat-fans alike can indulge in a detailed and in-depth look at the show that inspired generations.

In the late 1960s the iconic comic book character Batman was given his very own live action TV series featuring Adam West in the lead role as the Caped Crusader, Burt Ward as his trusty sidekick Robin, Cesar Romero as the insanely villainous Joker, and Burgess Meredith as the tyrannical Penguin. During its two years on air, the show compiled 120 episodes and a tie-in feature film. The series had a tremendous cultural impact and continues to resonate to this day. Batman: A Celebration of the Classic TV Series is a remarkably detailed and lavishly presented coffee table book that features all the legendary heroes and villains of the show in all their timeless glory, such as The Joker, The Penguin, Catwoman, and The Riddler.

The book will be released on October 27, 2015.

71kFKo9+WTL._SL1500_

Nostalgia: An Evening with Annie Lennox  CD +DVD is scheduled for release on on May 4, 2015.

Shot on January 28, 2015 by director Natalie Johns (Morrissey) at Los Angeles’ art deco Orpheum Theatre, the film captures one of music’s most popular and acclaimed artists in her only full concert performance of the songs from Nostalgia.

Fronting a 19-piece band – including string and horn sections – and unveiling striking lighting and production elements created especially for this special evening, Lennox demonstrates her distinctive vocal and performance talents on an array of American standards, ranging from “Summertime,” “Georgia On My Mind,” “Strange Fruit” and “God Bless The Child” to one of rock’n’roll’s most enduring classics, “I Put A Spell On You.” In addition to its inclusion in the deluxe package, the film can also be purchased on its own in DVD, Blu-ray and digital long form formats at all music retailers and streaming partners.

As she does on her Nostalgia album that spawned this one-of-a-kind concert, the singular approach Lennox brings to these classics enables them to resonate for a 21st Century audience. The artist concludes her extraordinary show with a four-song selection of her own hits performed solo at the piano, including “Here Comes The Rain Again,” “No More I Love You’s,” “Why” and “Sweet Dreams.”

This CD/DVD release provides a truly unique studio and live concert performance that music fans the world over can now experience for themselves.

Netflix Announces Season 2 of Daredevil for 2016

11182150_1618267091742861_5821361017400491446_n

Netflix announced today that they’ve picked up the series, Daredevil for a second season with a premiere planned for 2016.

Doug Petrie (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “American Horror Story”) and Marco Ramirez (“Sons of Anarchy”), who worked closely with Executive Producers Steven S. DeKnight and Drew Goddard during the first season, will serve as showrunners for season two. Goddard, Petrie and Ramirez will serve as Executive Producers for season two alongside Jeph Loeb.

“While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season, I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are carrying the torch,” says DeKnight. “They were invaluable collaborators during our first season, and I for one can’t wait to see what they do with the show moving forward.”

Starring Charlie Cox (Matt Murdock), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), Elden Henson (Foggy Nelson), Rosario Dawson (Claire Temple), Bob Gunton (Leland Owlsely aka The Owl), Vondie Curtis Hall (Ben Urich), Toby Leonard Moore (Wesley, Wilson Fisk’s right hand man), Ayelet Zurer (Vanessa Fisk), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Wilson Fisk), “Marvel’s Daredevil” follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.

The next Marvel series to hit the streaming service will be “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones”. That is targeted to arrive this fall with “Marvel’s Luke Cage” following in 2016. After that, we’re set to get “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and then “Marvel’s The Defenders,” described as “a mini-series event that reimagines a team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.”
