Alternate Title: The Last Movie

If you’re interested in a half-assed review of Friday’s Fringe finale, head to the bottom. If not, enjoy some links: You can’t convince me any right-thinking studio person had any kind of expectations about the Schwarzenegger movie The Last Stand. Even though it B-O-M-B-E-D BOMBED this weekend to the tune of a putrid $6 million, [...]

Kathryn Bigelow Agrees with Me. Or Me with Her. Or Something.

Wednesday links, because I haven’t done that in a while, sorry: I feel a good bit vindicated. After I left Zero Dark Thirty with my wife on Sunday, she was doing most of the talking because she LOVED it. After a while I said, “I think it was a pretty harsh commentary on women in [...]

Bourne, Spice Girls, Comics, Trailers. It’s a Lot.

Let’s clean out the bookmarks today, so some of this might be a tad old, but it’s stuff I’ve been meaning to get to: There it is! It’s in there! Someone finally did it! Someone from Warner Bros. finally came out and blamed the Colorado movie theater shooting tragedy for less-than-expected box office results for Dark [...]

Spoiling the Upfronts

It’s December. It’s almost Christmas. You can’t wait to get your presents and give other people theirs. Then on Dec. 10, your mom tells you, “We got you a new wallet.” On Dec. 18, your sister says, “Just so you know, I got you some new shoes.” Then on Dec. 22, five other people tell [...]

How PR Works in Today’s World of Entertainment

Links: UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Just thought I’d throw this in here that Glee (fourth season), Raising Hope (third season) and New Girl (second season), all PopRox-approved shows, have been renewed by Fox for the 2012-13 TV season. None of it is that big of a surprise, although Raising Hope’s ratigns aren’t exactly fantastic and it loses a [...]

Don’t Let the Door Hit You in the Butt, Terra Nova

Some links: Good timing! Right after adressing the Terra Nova situation last week, Fox came out and said the show is officially canceled. Apparently Fox doesn’t like it when the network gets bad PopRox publicity. For some reason, no one is calling the show a disaster when it clearly was. Fox spent huge money on [...]

Contemplating the (Improbable) Loss of The Simpsons and Dexter

Never forget the first rule of Hollywood: When there is money to be made, no franchise ends. There are very few exceptions to the rule, and those exceptions come about only because the creative team decides to pass up the money (think Titanic or Seinfeld). There has never, ever been a case where a Hollywood studio has [...]

TV’s Winners and Losers … So Far

Is it too early to start talking about winners and losers for the fall TV season since there are about a dozen shows that haven’t even premiered yet? You bet it is. Think that’s stopping me? You bet it won’t. WINNERS FOX: X-Factor may not be the American Idol-like hit the network wanted. And Terra [...]
